It can feel so difficult when you or someone you love has struggles with drug or alcohol dependence, that you don’t know how to approach it. However addiction is a treatable illness and by using proven and professional treatment methods, recovery from drug and alcohol addiction can be embraced.
This page will address how integrating different rehabilitation methods can enable long-term recovery for you or a loved one.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
The term addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is applied to all of the medical and therapeutic treatments used to help people who are struggling with dependencies on illegal or prescribed medications. Rehab treatment provides better chances of long term recovery success if it is customized to the individual needs of the client and includes medically-assisted detoxification, inpatient or outpatient programs, and relapse management techniques in the form of aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in Woodward Park?
Identifying and healing the latent causes behind your substance or alcohol addiction can be achieved through an integrated treatment model. Even though symptoms of addiction need to be addressed, life skills will also be encouraged in order to focus on the main causes of your substance misuse.
Private Residential Programs
Remaining at a rehab center and obtaining all of your treatments there is called being in a residential rehab program. Its key benefit is that you will continuously receive integrated treatment and support throughout the day.
Leaving your home environment and entering a rehab center can protect you against the stressors that negatively impact your use of substances. Successfully completing your rehab program and avoiding relapse is far easier if you stay in a safe and supportive environment. Residential rehab programs are useful for clients with strong drug or alcohol dependencies, co-occurring illnesses or dual diagnosis.
An inpatient program will support you with getting sober, but it’s important to note that maintaining sobriety requires ongoing effort as the early stages of recovery can be challenging. On completion of your residential addiction treatment program, you must transition towards greater independence as you set goals for your new sober life.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards sobriety.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the necessary support 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 check in on you daily
- Developing the sorts of behaviors that are needed in recovery
- Developing supportive and constructive connections with others in recovery
The flexibility of outpatient treatment programs means that you do not have to stop work commitments or family commitments, as you can attend the treatment facility and undergo regular treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs are best known for:
- Education around substance abuse
- Counseling and therapy through group settings or one-on-one sessions – The duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and continue for longer than a year, this will change based on your own requirements.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in rehab and is done to address your physical dependence on a substance by removing it from your system. During detox you will go through withdrawal symptoms as the system begins to work without the substance it was physically reliant on.
Withdrawal marks the start of the process of rehab, and needs to be followed up by dealing with the main reasons for your dependency, to avoid repeating the same negative cycle of behaviors. Detox can lead to some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for some time after your detox program has concluded. You can reduce the risk of relapse by building coping skills for your new life in recovery.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment will need to be paid directly or claimed through your healthcare policy. The majority of health insurance providers typically cover at least some of your rehab treatment, including detox, rehabilitation, medicines that are prescribed and relapse support. The total amount you will be able to claim should be checked against your policy rules and your provider.
Our advice is to find out how much cover you can claim prior to registering for a treatment 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 decide not to claim against your insurance, you have to pay for your rehab with your own funds. Some addiction treatment centers may provide a payment plan to clients who can’t afford to pay the whole cost of rehab.
State Funded Programs
If you want to overcome your substance or alcohol addiction but cannot afford private treatment, you should enroll for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Thanks to funds available from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, state-funded programs can subsidize your recovery with:
- Medical alcohol/drug detox
- Rehab treatment and relapse prevention services.
Those without private health cover or live in households with lower joint income may enroll for a state-funded treatment program. In order to begin the process, you will need to give:
- Proof of residence
- Proof of income
- History of your medical records and details regarding your addiction issues
- Proof that you have legal rights to live in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Woodward Park
When you leave treatment, you may notice some difficulties adjusting to life without substances. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals.
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. Clients who had severe dependencies find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab if they do not have a social support structure. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Relapse may happen in up to 60% of people, and due mostly to the unpredictability of life outside of rehab, having relapse prevention & support is an important part of your recovery journey. As you near the end of your treatment program, counselors will work with you to identify therapies and services that will help you with your long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to protect you. Alumni programs are a great benefit to completing rehab and provides you community support with former clients and staff.
You will enjoy access to team events and receive guidance and encouragement from individuals who are also in recovery long-term. We encourage you to consider supporting other peers in your network if you choose to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Attending in support groups is useful because companionship will encourage long-term addiction recovery. When you join a group that utilizes the 12-step model, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you will receive ongoing support through local meetings. During local meetings, you can share and learn from the experiences of others. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to support them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with vital tools to stay sober, allowing them to be accountable for their life.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone living in a family with addiction issues are affected, in various ways, by its negative impact. While its true that the person battling with dependence certainly needs all the help they can get, other family members also need support. Family support groups teach you affective coping strategies for your own life and allow you to offer more support to the individual who has the dependency.
Some Family and Child Support Groups include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
