Drug and alcohol dependence are challenging to address when they affect you or someone you care about. You can treat dependence even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is likely through professional rehab intervention methods.
This page will explain holistic approaches to addiction rehabilitation and how you or someone you love can begin and maintain a sober life.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we refer to addiction ‘rehab’, it encompasses the psychological interventions and medical treatments required to address addictions on substances such as opiates and illegal drugs including meth. There is no ‘single right’ approach to treatment because it needs to be unique to your lifestyle and may include detox, inpatient and outpatient support, and long-term aftercare programs.

What are the treatment options available in Bullard?
Understanding and healing the latent causes behind your substance or alcohol dependence can be achieved through the use of an holistic treatment model. It is crucial to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be considered, in order for you to deal with the triggers that lead to the drug or alcohol dependency.
Private Residential Programs
Living at a rehab center and undergoing all of your treatments there is called being in a residential rehab program. One of the biggest benefits is access to ongoing treatment and addiction specialists.
There is notable value in removing yourself from the home environment and becoming fully immersed in the rehab program, because you are not exposed to the stressors and triggers that may have caused you to use substances. You are far less susceptible to relapse when you finish your rehab program in a secure center where the environment is supportive. A residential addiction treatment program delivers the best results when you have a dual diagnosis, a severe substance dependency or co-occurring illnesses.
We understand that the early stages of recovery can be crucial and after a residential rehab program, you must stay focused so that you can maintain long term recovery. After you complete your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you focus on what you want from your new sober life.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards sobriety.
Sober Living Programs
You will receive support and guidance from a sober living program to help you navigate your future more effectively. The programs often include:
- Sending a house manager to see how you are doing every day
- Prescribing the sorts of behaviors that are expected in recovery
- Working on supportive and meaningful connections with other peers in recovery
Detox Only Programs
The initial stage of any rehab program is a detox, which removes any substances from your system and addresses your dependency on it. During detox you will develop withdrawal symptoms as the system begins to work without the substance it was physically reliant on.
The withdrawal process marks the beginning of the rehab recovery journey, and must be followed up by addressing the primary causes of your addictive behavior, to avoid a repeat of the same damaging pattern of behaviors. It is common to undergo withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after the substance has been removed from your system.
Your risk of relapse will be reduced as you learn the skills necessary for long-term success.
Outpatient treatment programs are flexible because you can maintain job or life requirements, while visiting the rehab facility for treatments.
Outpatient programs help you with:
- Education around substance misuse
- Counseling and therapy through group support or one-on-one sessions – The minimum duration of outpatient treatment is 3/4 months and it could be extended to longer than a year, this is depending on your personal requirements.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private rehab must be to be paid with your own funds or claimed in accordance with your healthcare policy. A large percentage of health insurance providers will cover some of the costs of rehab, which includes drug or alcohol detox, the rehab treatment program, medicines you may need and relapse prevention programs. The amount covered is dependent on your provider and the policy agreement.
It is a good idea to inquire about the amount you can claim prior to enrolling in a rehab program. To find out what you could claim through your insurance provider, please visit our Verify Your Insurance page here – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/. If you do not claim from your health insurance you must pay for your treatment programme. Many rehab providers will consider payment plans to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehab programs were developed to assist people who do not have the financial resources to recover from alcohol addiction or drug use disorder. With the help of stipends from state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these programs will remove hurdles to rehab by providing:
- Medical detox
- Rehab treatment and aftercare services.
Those with no private healthcare insurance or live in households where the combined income is low may enroll for a state-funded treatment program. In order to begin the process, you will need to provide:
- Medical records regarding your addiction issues
- Proof of residence
- Proof of what you earn
- Certification that you live in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Bullard
The early stages of addiction recovery can be challenging once you complete your treatment program. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support.
When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. If you experienced a severe dependency and have not developed a social structure to return to when you leave rehab, you may find long term recovery more of a challenge. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. Because no one can predict what’s going to happen in day-to-day life, up to 60% of clients in recovery experience relapse, making ongoing aftercare an essential part of addiction recovery. When your program is nearing completion, we will discuss the therapies and counseling most supportive of your long-term recovery and the appropriate aftercare provisions will be devised to assist you. After completing your rehabilitation program you will be eligible to join an alumni community program so you can remain in contact with staff and peers.
You will gain access to Alumni events and receive guidance and encouragement from ex-clients who are also in recovery long-term. You may decide to pay the favor forward, by giving your support to other members.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
With the help of support group meetings you can create a support structure that is conducive to your long-term sobriety. By joining a group that utilizes the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive ongoing support through regular meetings. During meetings, other members will share their stories and empower others. Through companionship and committing to the programme, individuals in recovery can feel empowered to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them most.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction negatively impacts those living in the family unit to various degrees. Although the individual battling with substance misuse certainly needs help and support, other family members also need counseling.
By taking part in family support groups, families will manage stressful situations more efficiently, and be able to support your loved one recovering from addiction. Families will benefit from participating in support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
