It can feel so lonely when you or a loved one has struggles with alcohol or drug addiction, that you don’t know how to help. The good news is that addiction is a treatable illness and by using proven and professional treatment methods, recovery from drug and alcohol addiction can be embraced.
On this page we detail how an integrated rehabilitation approach can encourage you or someone you love to start and sustain a life without drugs or alcohol.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we talk about ‘rehab’ for addiction, it encompasses therapeutic interventions and medical treatments required to address dependencies on substances such as opiates and illegal drugs including heroin. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to addiction rehab because it needs to be tailored to your lifestyle and may incorporate medical detox, inpatient and outpatient support, and extended relapse prevention programs.

Private Residential Programs
For those living in Oleander Sunset, residential addiction treatment programs require you to stay at the treatment center and have your treatments on-site. It is extremely beneficial to have access to 24/7 support and treatment options. Moving out of your home environment and entering a rehab center can protect you against triggers that negatively encourage your substance abuse.
By having an environment around you that is supportive, the possibility of relapse is reduced and you are more likely to complete your addiction treatment program. If you have co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency on drugs or alcohol, a residential program is ideally suited to meet your treatment needs. A residential treatment program will support you with getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require ongoing effort as the early stages of recovery are usually hard for many people. On completion of your residential rehab program, you must transition towards more independence as you set goals for your new life.

Outpatient rehab programs are usaully quite flexible and allow you to have therapy at the treatment center while you continue your work or family obligations.
Outpatient programs teach you:
- Educational workshops on drug use
- Counseling and therapy involving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group sessions – Your personal needs usually determine the length of your outpatient program, which may extend from a few months to a year.
Detox Only Programs
Most patients will need a medical detox to initiate substance rehab, as it addresses physical dependence on substances by clearing it from your system. As your body stabilizes without needing the drug it was dependent on, you will start to experience withdrawal symptoms.
This process of detoxification marks the beginning of your rehab journey, following which you will start to overcome the underlining causes of your addictive behavior to avoid repeating those same cycles. Given that most substances result in withdrawal, you may undergo withdrawal symptoms and cravings for some time after your detox phase has finished. Your odds of relapse will be reduced as you build on the necessary skills necessary to cope with your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you want to pursue private options, you can pay with your own funds or claim through your healthcare insurance Many insurance providers will contribute to some of the costs of rehab, including medical detox, rehab therapy, and any on-going support services you may require. Your provider’s terms and conditions will determine the amount of cover you can claim for.
We advise that you double-check on the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling in rehab. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you identify how much cover you will get. If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the cost of your rehab treatment needs to be covered directly. Many treatment facilities provide payment plans to clients who find the cost to be prohibitive.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Oleander Sunset
Maintaining addiction recovery can feel difficult when you leave a rehab center. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals.
Once you leave rehab there may be new triggers that put your coping skills to the test. 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. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

When your program draws to an end, we will help identify the therapies and counseling that is useful to your long-term recovery and an appropriate aftercare plan will be devised to assist you. After finishing your rehabilitation program you will be eligible for joining an alumni community program so you can remain close to staff and others in recovery.

This gives you the right opportunity to reciprocate and help other former clients.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups remain a vital resource because they incorporate social responsibility into addiction recovery. Support groups including AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) provide ongoing support using the 12 step principles and local weekly meetings. By attending nearby support group meetings you will listen to, and learn from, other members’ experiences. By building friendships and committing to the programme, those in recovery can feel able to take responsibility for themselves and protect those around them.
