What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we refer to addiction ‘rehab’, it includes the psychological interventions and medical treatments needed to address addictions on substances such as benzodiazepines and illegal drugs including meth.
Rehab treatment offers better chances of long term recovery success when it is customized to the individual needs of the client and incorporates medically-assisted detoxification, residential or outpatient programs, and relapse prevention techniques such as aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in Lassen?
Integrated rehab is usually the best manner in which to tackle the root causes of drug and alcohol dependencies. Substance dependence should be treated but gaining new life skills empowers you to overcome the problems that started your drug or alcohol problem.
Private Residential Programs
Residential rehabilitation programs enable you to reside on the same property that you are undergoing treatments in. Access to round-the-clock support and addiction treatment is one of the key benefits. If you leave your home and move into a treatment facility, you can free yourself from vulnerabilities to triggers that may have influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol.
You will be less susceptible to relapse if you complete your treatment program in a secure center where the environment is supportive. A residential program provides the best solution when you have a dual diagnosis, an intense substance dependency or co-occurring conditions.
A residential addiction treatment program will assist you with getting sober, however maintaining sobriety requires constant effort as the first year of recovery can be difficult. Once the inpatient program is finished you will learn how to be independent and your focus will be on what you would like from your new life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living rehab programs are designed to enable you to have more control over your life, through guidance and supportive structures. The programs include:
- Daily guidance from the house manager
- Creating guidelines to manage your behavior in recovery
- Guiding you to build positive relationships with peers who are going through similar experiences to you
Outpatient rehab programs offer more flexibility because you can continue work commitments and remain at home, but you attend the rehab facility for your treatments.
Outpatient programs are best known for:
- Education around substance abuse
- Counseling services and therapy with the use of group settings or individual sessions – The minimum duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and may last longer than a year, this is based on your individual requirements.
Detox Only Programs
The need for alcohol or drug detox from your body is the first stage towards rehabilitation, because it removes traces of the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. During the stage of detox you will go through withdrawal symptoms as the system begins to function without the substance it was dependent on.
By completing the detox stage you will continue forward in your recovery journey, as you come to terms with the root causes that contributed to your dependency, helping you cope and avoid it in the future. It is common to undergo withdrawal and cravings for a short duration after the substance has been flushed from your body. Your chances of relapsing will be reduced as you build on the necessary skills required for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you have chosen to commit to private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or start a claim through your healthcare policy. Most insurance companies contribute to at least part of the costs associated with addiction rehab, including a medically-supervised detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as post-treatment support.
The amount you can claim will be determined by your policy rules and your provider. We advise that you double check on the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling for treatment. To find out what you could qualify for, visit our Verify Your Insurance page.
If you choose not to claim against your health insurance plan, you are responsible for the cost of your treatment. Some rehab centers may provide payment plans to clients who find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
State-funded treatment programs are designed for individuals who need to tackle a drug or alcohol problem but have limited funds to pay privately for a program.
Via Medicaid and state budget funding, these programs can kickstart your recovery with:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Lassen
Leaving treatment and returning home can be hard for people new to recovery. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by 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. Long term sobriety is more difficult to maintain when you have had a severe dependency and do not have social support when you leave rehab. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Relapse rates can peak as high as 60%, and because life has its own challenges, relapse prevention & support is an invaluable tool to support your recovery in the long-term.
Once you get close to the end of your rehab program, you will discuss the treatment services most beneficial to you long-term, and an aftercare package will be designed to help you sustain from drinking or taking drugs. Alumni programs are one bonus to completing treatment and provides you community access to former clients and staff.
You can attend addiction recovery events, join groups and get support and motivation from other former clients who are also in long-term sobriety. You may also want to pay the favor forward, by providing your support to other members.

Through support group meetings you can enable a support structure that is conducive to your long-term sobriety. You can get long-term recovery support if you find local groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous by attending any 12-step meetings.
You will be empowered from other people’s experiences and share your own at support group meetings. Many people in recovery attend nearby meetings to help them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with vital tools to maintain sobriety, and allow them to take responsibility for their own journey in recovery.
