What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

Private Residential Programs
Residential rehab programs require you to stay at the treatment facility and take part in your treatments on-site. Having Access to daily support and addiction treatment is by far one of the core benefits.
There is substantial value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully immersed in the rehabilitation program, because you are no longer vulnerable to the stressors and triggers that may cause you to abuse drugs. You are far less susceptible to relapse when you finish your rehab program in a controlled facility where the environment is supportive. Residential programs are generally most effective when your drug or alcohol dependency is chronic and severe, or if you experience co-occurring illnesses or have a dual diagnosis.
You can start the initial steps to recovery by taking part in a residential rehab program, however to get through the difficulty of the early stages of addiction recovery, you have to commit to a new life of sobriety. On completion of your inpatient rehab program, you will transition towards greater independence as you consider your goals for your new sober life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the required support to help people in recovery get what they need from their new life. They support you through:
- Guidance daily from a house manager
- Building frameworks for positive recovery behavior
- Fostering new relationships with others who will be working through similar kinds of experiences
The flexibility of outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop work commitments or family commitments, as you can attend the rehabilitation center and undergo regular treatments in your own time.
Outpatient programs are best known for:
- Education on substance dependence
- Therapy and psychological interventions that include group and individualized therapy – Outpatient treatment programs can last between three months to over a year, depending on your needs.
Detox Only Programs
The process of detoxing a substance from your body is the first step towards rehab, because it removes traces of the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. Withdrawal symptoms are the body’s main response to detoxification, as it begins getting used to working without drugs or alcohol.
This marks the start of the rehabilitation process, the next stage is to confront and address the root problems that lead to your addiction, so that those same issues do not happen again. It is normal to encounter withdrawal and cravings for a while after the substance has been flushed from your body. Rehab will help you learn life-changing skills to take into your new life so that you reduce the risk of relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
The cost of private rehab may be covered through your healthcare policy or self-funded. A large percentage of health insurance providers offer cover for some rehab, which includes medical detox, the rehab program, medicines you may need and relapse prevention programs. Your provider’s terms and conditions will provide details on the amount of cover you can claim for.
We recommend you understand how much cover you are entitled to prior to enrolling in a program. Click on our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ – to learn about the cover you qualify for.
If you choose not to claim from your policy, you will need to fund your treatment. Some addiction treatment centers will provide payment plans to clients who are struggling to pay the full cost of rehab.
State Funded Programs
If you want to address your substance or alcohol problems but cannot pay for private treatment, you should enroll for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Through Medicaid and state budget funding, these programs may help your recovery by including:
- Medically-supervised drug/alcohol detox
- Rehab treatment and aftercare services.
If you are not protected by private health insurance or you live in a low income household, you may consider applying for a state-funded rehab program. You have to provide:
- Proof of living arrangements
- Proof of your financial situation
- Your medical history and details about your addiction issues
- Proof that you have legal rights to live in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Oakley
You may undergo some initial difficulties when first leaving treatment. 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.
If you had a severe dependency or if you leave rehab without the appropriate social support, you will find long term recovery to be more challenging. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Individuals who complete their treatment programs will gain access to an alumni community program such as ours, which gives you the chance to interact with staff and peers. You can attend team events, take part in different initiatives, build connections, and receive support from other members in recovery. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other former clients in your network if you want to.

Support groups provide them with the necessary tools tools to stay sober, allowing them to be accountable for their actions to themselves and others.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction damages relationships for everyone in a family to varying degrees. The person with the dependency needs support, but other members of the family need support and guidance too.
