Because of the struggles that are connected with alcohol and drug dependence, many people do not know where to look for treatment. Through proven rehabilitation therapies, substance dependence can be managed for long-term recovery.
We will detail how addiction recovery is achievable for you or a loved one if an holistic treatment approach is utilized.
What is addiction rehab?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a holistic treatment program that utilizes both counseling and medical interventions to treat dependencies on both illegal and legal substance addictions. There is no ‘single right’ approach to treatment because it needs to be tailored to your requirements and may incorporate medical detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, and extended relapse prevention programs.

What are the treatment options available in Brentwood?
By integrating treatments, the root causes of drug dependence can be addressed and treated. Symptoms of addiction should be treated but building new life skills encourages you to face the reasons that started your drug or alcohol addiction.
Living at a rehab center and obtaining all of your treatments there is called being in a residential rehab program. The main benefit is being able to have integrated support and treatment throughout the day. Leaving your home environment and entering a rehab center will cushion you against the stressors that negatively impact your substance use. You can finish your treatment program and avoid relapse more easily when you stay in a controlled facility that is safe and supportive.
Residential addiction treatment programs are recommended for those with strong drug and alcohol dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. We know that the early stages of recovery can be crucial and after a residential rehab program, you must remain focused to maintain long term recovery. Once you have completed your residential addiction treatment program you must focus on becoming more autonomous and set new goals and challenges.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the needed guidance to help those recovering from addiction get what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They support you through:
- Sending a house manager to see how you are doing daily
- Fostering the kinds of behaviors that are acceptable in recovery
- Working on supportive and positive connections with peers in recovery
Outpatient rehab programs provide greater flexibility as you can continue work commitments and live at home, but you attend the rehab facility for your treatments.
Outpatient programs should provide you with:
- Education around substance abuse
- Counseling services and therapy through group support or individual sessions – The duration of outpatient treatment is three months and continue for longer than a year, this will change based on your personal needs.
Detox Only Programs
Taking part in a detoxification program is a vital hurdle in rehab as it addresses your physical dependency by removing substances from your system. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s response to detoxification, as it gets used to functioning without the substance.
After this you will move ahead in your rehab journey, as you begin addressing the main causes that lead to your dependency, helping you understand how to avoid it in the future. Detox can result in some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for an extended period after your drug or alcohol detox program has completed. Your odds of relapse are reduced as you learn the skills required for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment must be paid yourself or claimed via your health insurance. In most instances, insurance providers will contribute to the costs of treatment, at least partially, including a drug or alcohol detox regime, rehab therapy, and relapse prevention programs. The amount covered is down to your provider and the terms and conditions of your policy.
Before you take part in a rehab program, you should always check how much cover you claim for. Check out our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ – to learn more about the cover you qualify for.
If you choose not get cover from your insurance provider, you will need to pay the cost of treatment yourself. A number of treatment centres include payment options to clients so that cost is not a barrier to treatment.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Brentwood
When you leave and complete your treatment programme, you may find it challenging. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated.
Long term recovery is more challenging if you have a severe dependency or if you return to your new life without social support structures in place. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.
