Private Residential Programs in Lakeview

A residential treatment program is when you live at the rehab facility and receive all your treatment within the property. Its key benefit is that you can receive integrated treatment and support all through the day. By moving out of your home and into a rehab center, you can protect yourself from the obvious triggers that are partly responsible for you developing a substance use disorder. You are less likely to relapse when you complete your residential treatment program in a secure facility where the environment is supportive. When you have a severe substance dependency, or suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential rehab program is advised.

Recovery from addiction is possible if you enroll in a residential treatment program, however if you wish to maintain it you are going to need to face up to the difficulties that come with the early stages of recovery. On completion of your inpatient addiction treatment program, you must transition towards greater independence as you consider your goals for your new sober life.

  2. Counseling and therapeutic interventions involving individual or group therapy – Your personal needs usually determine the duration of your outpatient program, which may extend from a couple of months to over year.

Detox Only Programs

The need for detoxing a substance from your system is the first stage towards rehab, because it removes traces of the substance and puts an end to your physical dependence. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s normal response to detoxification, as it starts getting used to functioning without substances.

This detox phase marks the start of your rehabilitation journey, and the next steps work to identify and address the underlining reasons for your addiction, so that the pattern does not repeat. Quite a few substances cause protracted cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have completed drug or alcohol detox. Building on the necessary skills can help you to reduce your risk of relapse as you adapt to your new life.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you have chosen to go ahead with private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or start a claim via your healthcare policy. Most insurance providers contribute to some of the costs associated with drug and alcohol rehab, including a medically-managed detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as aftercare support.

The amount you can claim will be determined by your policy rules and your provider. We recommend you understand how much cover you have prior to enrolling in a program. To find out what you could qualify for, please click on our Verify Your Insurance page. Clients will be responsible for the cost of rehab if they do not claim from their insurance provider. Many treatment centres offer payment plans to clients so that they can pay for treatment in instalments.

State Funded Programs

If you are struggling with substance dependence and do not have the funds to fund private treatment, you can look for a state-funded rehabilitation program. These programs exist thanks to Medicaid and federal/state budgets to facilitate recovery through:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Lakeview

Sustaining addiction recovery can feel a challenge once you embark on your new journey outside of rehab. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. Long term recovery is more challenging if you have a severe dependency or if you return to your new life without social support structures in place. Relapse can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.
