What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a broad term that describes the therapeutic and medical treatments that are used to help individuals recover from their dependencies on illegal & legal substances.

An integrated solution is generally the most effective way to tackle and heal the root causes of substance use disorders and alcoholism. Symptoms of substance misuse should be treated but building new life skills encourages you to overcome the problems that started your addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Private Residential Programs
Remaining at a addiction center and undergoing all of your treatments there is known as a residential rehab program. One of the major benefits is access to daily treatment and addiction specialists. By removing yourself from your home environment and living at the rehab facility you will protect yourself against the stressors that lead to your substance abuse.
Finishing your treatment program and avoiding relapse is much easier if you remain in a protective and supportive environment. Clients who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and extreme dependencies are encouraged to consider an inpatient rehab program. Sobering up is achievable if you partake in a residential rehab program, but if you want to maintain it you will have to rise above the difficulties that are associated with the early stages of recovery. Completing your residential rehab program is the start of your new, independent life and you need to focus on setting goals for your substance-free future.

Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will help you with important skills you need, using guidance and support. You can look forward to:
- Sending a house manager to see how you are doing regularly
- Prescribing the kinds of behaviors that are needed in recovery
- Building on supportive and constructive relations with other peers in recovery
By engaging in an outpatient program you have a lot more flexibility, as you will visit the rehab center for treatment weekly and maintain important work or other commitments.
Outpatient programs help you with:
- Education about substance misuse
- Counseling services and therapy with the use of group settings or individual sessions – The minimum duration of an outpatient program is three months and continue for longer than a year, this is based on your individual needs.
Detox Only Programs
The initial phase of a treatment program is a detox, which eliminates any traces of substances from your body and tackles your physical dependency on it. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s normal response to detoxification, as it begins getting used to working without substances.
This marks the start of the rehab process, the next stage is to tackle and heal the underlying problems that lead to your addiction, so that those same issues do not continue. You can expect to feel some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for some time after your drug or alcohol detox has concluded. Your chances of relapsing can be limited as you build on the important skills necessary for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide on private options, you can pay for treatment by funding it yourself or make a claim through your insurance. Many insurance companies will allow you to claim at least some of the costs of rehab, including a drug or alcohol detox, rehab programs, and any interventions you may require.
The type of cover given will depend on the fine print of your policy as well as your provider’s. Our advice is to find out how much cover you are entitled to prior to registering for a treatment program. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you find out the amount of cover you can claim for.
If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the cost of your treatment needs to be covered directly. Many rehab providers will consider payment options to clients who cannot afford the full cost upfront.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Azusa
You may undergo some initial challenges once you leave rehab. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address. Clients who had severe dependencies find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab if they do not have a social support structure.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
By participating in an aftercare program you get extended rehab support when you go home. Unfortunately, relapse rates can peak as high as 60%, and because life can be stressful, relapse prevention & support is an essential service to support your recovery in the long-term.
When you approach the finish line of your rehab program, you will be asked about the therapies and services that will help you with your long-term recovery, and we will create an aftercare program to protect you. Clients who finish their treatment programs will have access to an alumni community program like ours, which provides you the opportunity to interact with staff and others in early recovery.
This fantastic network gives you access to our special events, as well as ongoing support and companionship from other recovering members. We encourage you to consider helping other individuals who are active in your network if you feel comfortable to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Participating in support groups is useful because fellowship will enable long-term addiction recovery. When you join a group that utilizes the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive ongoing support via group meetings.
By attending nearby support group meetings you will hear, and learn from, life experiences of other members. Through companionship and committing to the 12-steps, those in recovery can feel encouraged to take responsibility for their actions and protect those that love them.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Some people in an addicted household are affected more than other individuals. While its true that the person struggling with addiction certainly needs support and guidance, other family members also need counseling.
Participating in family support groups can help you to cope better, and also encourage you to provide greater support to the individual with the dependency. Your family members may benefit from support groups including:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
