Alcohol and drug addictions introduce difficulties when you or someone you care about experiences them. Through proven rehabilitation interventions, drug and alcohol addiction can be managed for long-term abstinence.
This Guide will explain integrated approaches to treatment and how you or your loved one can begin and maintain addiction recovery.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a broad term that includes the therapeutic and medical treatments that are utilized to help people recover from their dependencies on illegal drugs or prescribed medications.
Rehab programs are more successful when they are personalized to your lifestyle needs, and may encompass inpatient programs, outpatient programs, medically-managed detoxes and relapse prevention programs.

What are the treatment options available in Baldwin Park?
Through consolidating treatments, the primary causes of substance use disorders can be explored and healed. It is vital to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be learnt, in order for you to cope with the issues that lead to the drug or alcohol dependency.
Private Residential Programs
A residential treatment program is when you live at the rehab center and receive all addiction treatment within the property. A primary benefit is that you will have integrated support and treatment all day. When you stay at a treatment facility you will be free from many of the stressors in your home environment that could influence your substance misuse.
You can finish your treatment program and avoid relapse more easily if you stay in a controlled environment which is safe and supportive. Patients who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and extreme dependencies are strongly advised to enroll for an inpatient addiction treatment program.
An inpatient addiction treatment program will assist you with getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require ongoing effort as the first few months of recovery are usually hard for many people. Upon completion of your residential addiction treatment program, you must transition towards more independence as you build goals for your new substance-free life.

Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will empower you with necessary skills you need, using support and guidance from addiction specialists. You can anticipate:
- A house manager who checks up on you regularly
- Supporting you on the right way to behave in recovery
- Encouraging necessary friendships with others in recovery who understand your experiences
Outpatient rehab programs provide flexibility because you can maintain job or family commitments, while attending the rehab facility for treatments.
Outpatient programs are known for:
- Education around substance misuse
- Therapeutic support and counseling in the form of group therapy or one-on-one interventions – The duration of any outpatient program is unique to your situation and lasts from three months to more than a year.
Detox Only Programs
Going through a drug or alcohol detox program is a crucial stage in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by removing substances from your system. As your body stabilizes without the drug it was dependent on, you will start to have withdrawal symptoms.
Upon completion of the detox phase, you will continue forward in your recovery journey, as you come to terms with the main causes that lead to your addiction, to help you recognise the patterns and avoid it in the early stages of recovery and beyond. It is normal to develop withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after the substance has been eradicated from your system. You can reduce the odds of relapse by building coping strategies for your new life in recovery.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private rehab must be paid yourself or claimed via your health insurance. Fortunately, most health insurance providers will cover at least some of your rehab program, such as detox, rehab therapy, medicines and aftercare support.
The amount covered will be set by your provider and your policy. We suggest finding out how much cover you are entitled to prior to enrolling in a program. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you can claim for.
If you choose not to claim against your policy, the financial cost of rehab will need to be covered directly. You may be able to negotiate a payment plan if the total cost is too much upfront.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehabilitation programs are aimed at individuals who are motivated to tackle a substance or alcohol use disorder but have limited resources to take part in a private rehab program. Through the use of funds from state and federal resources as well as Medicaid, these programs may provide treatments such as:
- Medical assessment and detox if required
- Addiction counseling and extended support
State-funded treatment programs are open to those who are unable to get private health insurance or who live in poorer areas. When applying you will need to show:
- Proof that you are a resident of the US
- Proof of income
- Proof of where you live
- Medical details about your substance misuse

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Baldwin Park
Maintaining your recovery can be challenging when you return to normal life after completing addiction treatment. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center.
When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. 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
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Unfortunately, relapse rates can peak as high as 60%, and because life is difficult at the best of times, aftercare support is an invaluable service to support your long-term recovery plans.
Once you approach the end of your rehab program, you will discuss the therapies and counseling services most beneficial to you long-term, and an aftercare program will be designed to help you sustain from drinking or taking drugs. One of the many benefits of finishing rehab is the support of an alumni community program, where you will be able to liaise with former clients and staff in a community based project.
You will enjoy access to team events and receive guidance and encouragement from individuals who are also in recovery long-term. You may also reciprocate in the program by supporting other people if you like.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
With the help of support group meetings you will enable a support structure that is conducive to your long-term sobriety. Addiction support groups such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) offer regular support with the help of the 12-step model and regular meetings.
Attending support group meetings provides you with an opportunity to you to learn from other people and provide insights into your own experiences. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to support them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with vital tools to stay away from substances, and allow them to be accountable for their recovery.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Those living within a household with addiction issues are damaged, in different ways, by its negative impact. Support is just as crucial for the family members as it is for the person with the substance use disorder.
Support groups for families has two important benefits: you can support yourself and the individual in the early stages of recovery. Receive help and support for the Family with the below support groups:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
