Integrated rehab treatment is usually the ideal manner in which to tackle the root causes of alcohol and drug dependencies. It is important to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping methods need to be implemented, in order for you to work with the problems that lead to the drug or alcohol dependency.
Private Residential Programs
If you are staying on the same property that you are undergoing your rehab treatments in, you are said to be in a residential rehab program. A primary benefit is the ability to receive holistic support and treatment throughout the day.
When you leave your home and move into a treatment facility, you can remove yourself from exposure to stressors that may have influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol. When you reside in a safe and supportive environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and increase the likelihood of finishing your rehab program. Clients who struggle with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and severe dependencies are encouraged to take part in an inpatient treatment program.
Getting sober is achievable if you enroll in a residential rehab program, but if you wish to maintain it you are going to have to face up to the challenges that come with the first year of recovery. When you have finished your residential addiction treatment program you will want to be more independent and set life goals and new challenges.

Once the substance has been eliminated from your system you may still experience cravings for it, including symptoms of withdrawal for for a few weeks. Relapse is less risky when you are equipped with the vital skills required to navigate your path in recovery.

Your coping skills will be put to the test when you leave rehab, as you may experience some challenges that you still need to learn to deal with.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups have always been a great resource because they integrate social structures into addiction recovery. Recovery support groups including AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) facilitate recovery support utilizing the 12-step model and regular meetings. During support group meetings, other members will share their stories and learn important insights from others. Friendship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction negatively impacts everyone living in the family unit to different degrees. Support is critical for all members of a family, not only the person struggling with the dependency. By joining family support groups, families will learn to manage stressful situations more effectively, and be able to provide better to your family member in recovery.
Your family will benefit from support groups such as:
