Private Residential Programs in in Alhambra, CA
Residential rehab programs require you to reside at the treatment facility and have your treatments on-site. The main benefit is that you will receive holistic support and treatment all day. By displacing yourself from your home environment and residing at the treatment facility you will protect yourself from the triggers that keep you trapped in the cycle of drug or alcohol abuse.
By choosing to stay in a secure environment that is designed to be supportive, you have a higher chance of completing your treatment program while reducing the chance of relapse and its potential pitfalls.
A residential addiction treatment program provides the best prognosis when you have a dual diagnosis, a complex substance dependency or co-occurring disorders. We understand that the first few months of recovery are challenging and after a residential rehab program, you will need to stay focused so that you can maintain your recovery. After you complete your residential treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you focus on what you want from your life free from drugs or alcohol.
Do You Need Help?

- Sending a house manager to see how you are doing daily
- Prescribing the sorts of behaviors that are needed in recovery
- Developing supportive and constructive connections with peers in recovery
Outpatient rehab programs are usaully quite flexible and allow you to have therapy at the rehab center while you maintain important work or family obligations.
Outpatient programs should provide you with:
- Education around substance misuse
- Counseling and therapy by means of group settings or one-to-one sessions – The required duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and continue for longer than a year, this will change based on your own needs.
Detox Only Programs
The early phase of any rehab program is detoxification, which eliminates all traces of substances from your system and tackles your physical dependency on it. During the stage of detox you will go through withdrawal symptoms as your body starts to function independently of the substance it was physically reliant on. The withdrawal process symbolizes the start of the process of rehab, and needs to be followed up by overcoming the main causes of your dependency, so you do not repeat the same pattern of behaviors.
A lot of substances result in temporary cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through drug or alcohol detox. Rehab therapy will help you develop coping skills that are designed so that you limit the risk of relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
The cost of private treatment may be covered through your insurance policy or funded with your own money. Most insurance companies can contribute to some of the costs associated with addiction rehab, such as a medically-managed detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as aftercare support. The amount covered for your treatment will depend on your healthcare provider and policy type. We recommend that you find out how much cover you are entitled to prior to enrolling in a program. Go to our Verify Your Insurance page to learn about the cover you qualify for.
If you do not make a claim against your health insurance you must pay upfront for your rehab treatment. A number of rehab facilities include payment options to clients so that the cost can be spread out.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehab programs have been developed to assist individuals without the financial means to deal with an alcohol addiction or drug dependence.
With the assistance of stipends from a combination of state, federal and Medicaid budgets, state-funded programs help to remove financial barriers to treatment by offering:
- Safe & confidential medical detox

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Alhambra
Maintaining recovery can feel challenging when you leave a rehab center. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. Once you leave rehab there may be new triggers that put your coping skills to the test. 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 can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. By taking part in aftercare support, you can reduce the risk of relapse which hurts up to 60% of individuals who have recently completed a program. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.
When you get closer to the end pf your rehab program, you must consider which services will be beneficial for your long term recovery. We help you to develop an aftercare package that protects you.
One great benefit of finishing rehab is the support of an alumni community program, where you will be able to liaise with former clients and staff as part of a recovery community. You will be invited to attend team events, take part in a number of initiatives, build connections, and receive advice from other ex-clients who are also in recovery. This gives you an ideal opportunity to reciprocate and offer support other former clients.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Being active in support groups is important because social structures enable long-term addiction recovery. The 12-step model is maintained by support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which have continued supporting people in recovery by providing regular meetings. By attending nearby support group meetings you will listen to, and understand, life experiences of other members. Many individuals in recovery attend local meetings to support them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools to stay away from substances, allowing them to be accountable for their recovery.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction causes pain to everyone in a family to different extents. Help is just as crucial for all family members as it is for the individual with the addiction. Taking part in a family support group can help you to manage the situation better, and also encourage you to provide greater support to those struggling with addiction.
Families will benefit from participating in support groups such as:
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
