Alcohol and drug disorders introduce hurdles when you or someone you love experiences them. Even though addiction is a disease, it can be treated when evidence-based rehabilitation methods are explored. Long term addiction recovery is possible.
Our Guide will address how integrating addiction treatment approaches can enable a sober future for yourself or a loved one.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we mention addiction ‘rehabilitation’, we refer to the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments used to deal with dependencies on alcohol and drugs (including prescription medications).
Rehab offers the best chance of long term success if it is customized to the individual needs of the client and includes medically-managed detoxification, residential or outpatient programs, and relapse management techniques also known as aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in Kings County?
An integrated approach is generally the most effective way to tackle and heal the root causes of substance use disorders and alcohol addiction. Whilst treating the symptoms of addiction is necessary, you also must build coping skills to address the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
A residential rehab program is when you live at the rehab facility and receive all addiction treatment on the property. The key benefit is the ability to have integrated support and treatment all day. If you reside at a treatment center you will be away from most of the triggers in your home environment that may encourage your substance misuse.
You will be less susceptible to relapse when you complete your rehab program in a secure center where the environment is supportive.
A residential program provides the best prognosis when you have a dual diagnosis, a chronic substance dependency or co-occurring conditions. Enrolling in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to get sober, and maintaining it demands ongoing focus because maintaining recovery is difficult during the first few months. Once you have completed your residential addiction treatment, you must consider what you’d like from your new life, as you transition to becoming more independent.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living treatment programs are designed to enable you to have more stability in your life, with guidance and supportive structures. Sober living programs incorporate:
- Sending a house manager to see how you are doing daily
- Developing the kinds of behaviors that are needed in recovery
- Working on supportive and constructive connections with peers in recovery
The flexibility of outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop going to work or attending family commitments, as you can come to the rehab center and undergo weekly treatments in your own time.
Outpatient programs assist you with:
- Educational workshops on drug use
- Counseling and therapy such as individual or group sessions – Your personal needs usually determine the duration of your outpatient program, which may extend from three months to over year.
Detox Only Programs
The early phase of any rehab program is a detox, which eliminates all traces of substances from your system and addresses your physical dependency on it. You typically experience withdrawal symptoms as a normal reaction to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your system.
Once detox is complete you will continue forward in your rehab journey, as you address the main causes for your addiction, to help you recognise the patterns and avoid it in the future. It is likely you will experience withdrawal symptoms and cravings for some time after your detox program is complete. Relapse is less of a concern if you are equipped with the life skills that will help you navigate your journey in recovery.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you make the decision to continue with private treatment, you can contact your healthcare provider to make a claim or pay with your own funds. A large number of health insurance providers usually cover at least some of your rehab program, which includes detox, rehab therapy, medication and aftercare support. Your provider along with policy terms and conditions will provide details on the amount of cover you can claim for.
You should identify how much cover you can claim against before signing up for a treatment program. Visit our Verify Your Insurance page to find out about the cover you qualify for.
If you decide not to claim against your insurance, you have to pay for your rehab directly. Some rehab centers may provide payment plans for those who find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you want to address your substance or alcohol problems but you are unable to afford private rehab, you should enroll for a state-funded rehabilitation program.
Through the use of funds from state and federal sources as well as Medicaid, these programs may facilitate treatments including:
- Medical detoxes
- Rehab treatment programs which includes extended care
Those who do not have private health cover or live in households with lower joint income may enroll for a state-funded rehab program. So that you can start the application, you will need to submit:
- Where you live
- The amount you earn
- Evidence about your drug or alcohol addiction
- Living in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Kings
Maintaining your recovery can feel difficult when returning to home life after completing your rehab programme. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center.
When you depart rehab there will be some new challenges that you will have to learn to cope with. 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. Guidance and aftercare support is integral in the early stages of recovery to help prevent relapse.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Unfortunately, Relapse can happen in 60% of cases, and due mostly to the natural events of life post-rehab, having aftercare is an important part of your recovery journey. When your treatment is close to completion, we will help identify the therapies and counseling most useful to your long-term recovery and an appropriate aftercare plan will be designed to assist you. After you have completed your addiction treatment program you will be eligible for joining an alumni community program so you can stay in contact with staff and peers.
You can attend addiction recovery events, join groups and get advice and motivation from other ex-clients who are also in recovery as well. We encourage you to consider offering support to other members who are part of your network if you decide to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups encourage long-term recovery because they understand the important role that social structures play in encouraging addiction recovery. If you participate in a group that follows the 12-step model, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you will receive endless support through local meetings.
When you go to support group meetings, you will have the ability to share your own experiences in recovery and feel empowered by other members in similar walks of life. Many individuals 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 away from substances, allowing them to take responsibility for their recovery.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction causes pain to everyone in a family unit to different extents. Support and guidance is just as vital for the family members as it is for the individual with the addiction.
Family support groups provide you with vital coping tools for your own life and help you to offer greater support to the loved one who has the addiction. Family members can benefit from participating in support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
