Private Residential Programs
By remaining on the same property that you are obtaining your rehab treatments in, you are said to be in a residential treatment program. Its major benefit is the ability to receive integrated treatment and support day by day.
If you leave your home and move into a treatment facility, you can free yourself from exposure to triggers that influenced your decision to abuse drugs or alcohol.
By having an environment around you that is supportive, you reduce the chance of relapse and you are far more likely to finish your treatment. If you have a severe substance dependency, or if you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential addiction treatment program is best.
We understand that the first year of recovery are challenging and after a residential treatment program, you need to stay focused to maintain recovery. After you complete your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you consider what you want from your life free from drugs or alcohol.

- A house manager to check in on you daily

Outpatient rehabilitation programs are typically more flexible by allowing you to have therapy at the treatment center while you continue important career or family commitments.
Outpatient programs usually provide:
- Education around substance abuse
- Counseling services and therapy through group support or one-to-one sessions – The duration of outpatient treatment is three months and it could be extended to longer than a year, this is based on your own needs.
Detox Only Programs
Most individuals need a medical detox to commence drug rehab, as it tackles physical dependencies on substances by clearing it from your system. During detox you will experience withdrawal symptoms as the system stabilizes to work independently of the substance it was physically reliant on.
This marks the beginning of the rehab process, and the next steps are to confront and heal the root reasons for your addiction, so that those same patterns do not happen again. Many drugs cause withdrawal and cravings for a long time after they have been eliminated from your body. You can lessen your chance of relapse by developing coping strategies for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide to pursue private treatment, you can start a claim through your healthcare provider or pay the cost of treatment with your own funds. Many health insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs associated with a rehab program, which could help with a detox plan, rehab program and aftercare to help you in the early stage of recovery. The amount covered will be determined by your provider and the details of your policy.
We advise that you determine the amount you can claim against your policy before enrolling in a rehab program. Our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ can help you find out the amount of cover you can claim for.
If you choose not to claim against your insurance, you have to pay for your treatment with your own funds. Some rehab centers may extend payment plans for individuals who may find the costs unaffordable upfront.

When your treatment is close to completion, we will discuss the therapies and counseling that is useful to your long-term recovery and the appropriate aftercare provisions will be created to assist you. Clients who complete their treatment programs can join an alumni community program like ours, which provides you the chance to interact with staff and others in early recovery.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups really are essential to long-term sobriety as they focus on the need for social interactions in addiction recovery. Addiction support groups like AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) offer ongoing support using the 12 steps and regular meetings.
You will benefit from lived experiences of others and share your own at support group meetings. Companionship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction impacts on everyone living in the family unit to various degrees. Although the individual who has a dependency certainly needs all the help they can get, other members of the household also need assistance.
Taking part in family support groups can help you to manage the situation better, and also encourage you to provide greater support to the person with the dependency.

- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
