Learn about how sober living can be maintained if you or a loved one can apply an holistic addiction treatment approach.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
The term substance ‘rehabilitation’ is applied to all of the medical and psychological treatments used to help individuals who are struggling with dependencies on illegal substances including cocaine, or prescribed medications such as opiates.
Treatment that is specific to your personal needs is successful when it includes medically-supervised detox, residential programs, outpatient care and relapse prevention techniques.

What are the treatment options available in Bellflower?
A consolidated treatment approach offers a successful way to identify and address the prime causes of drug or alcohol addictions. Identifying coping strategies to treat the root causes of your substance dependency is just as important as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
Reside at the center where you are receiving addiction treatment, you are taking part in a residential program. One of the main benefits is access to daily treatment and care. By moving out of your comfort zone and into a rehab facility, you can protect yourself from the those potential triggers that culminated in you developing a drug addiction.
You are far less likely to relapse when you finish your rehab program in a secure center where the environment is supportive.
When you have a severe substance dependency, or if you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential rehab program is advised. An inpatient program will assist you with getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require ongoing effort as the first year of recovery can be challenging. Once you have completed your residential program you must become more autonomous and set life goals and new challenges.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the necessary support to help people in recovery get what they need from their new life. They support you through:
- A house manager who will visit you daily
- Supporting you on the right way to behave in recovery
- Encouraging important relationships with others in recovery who can empathize with your experiences
Outpatient addiction treatment programs are typically more flexible and allow you to have treatment at the rehab center while you continue your work or life commitments.
Outpatient programs offer recovery services through:
- Education on alcohol and drug abuse
- Therapy and psychological interventions like group and individualized therapy – An outpatient program can last between a few months to a year, this depends on your requirements.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in drug or alcohol rehab and is actioned to address your physical dependency on a drug by removing any trace of it from your body. During the stage of detox you will develop withdrawal symptoms as the system starts to work without the substance it was dependent on.
This is only the beginning of the rehabilitation journey, and the next steps are to tackle and address the underlying problems that lead to your addiction, so that those same patterns do not happen again. Once the substance has been eliminated from your system you may notice some cravings for it, including symptoms of withdrawal for an extended period of time.
You can limit your risk of relapse by building coping strategies for long-term recovery success.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you choose private options, you can pay with your own funds or request a claim through your insurance The majority of health insurance providers usually cover at least a portion of your rehab program, such as detox, rehabilitation, medication and aftercare support.
The amount of cover you are entitled to claim will depend on your provider and policy. Before taking part in a program, you should always check how much cover you can make a claim against. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you find out the amount of cover you can claim for.
Clients will be responsible for the cost of rehab if they do not claim via their insurance policy. Some addiction treatment facilities may offer a payment plan to individuals who can’t pay the full cost of treatment.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehabilitation programs have been created to support individuals who do not have the financial means to overcome alcohol addiction or drug addiction.
Assistance can be provided with funds provided from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, state-funded programs can subsidize your recovery with:
- Medical assessment and detox if required

In order to take part in a state-funded rehab program you need to submit proof that you live in a low income household or do not have a private healthcare policy:
- Medical information that supports your addiction issues

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Bellflower
Leaving a rehab center and returning home can be hard for people in early recovery. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for.
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. Relapse can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. By participating in aftercare support, you can limit the risk of relapse which hurts as many as 60% of individuals who have recently finished a program. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.
As you get close to finishing your rehab program, you may consider which services will support you in your long term recovery. We will establish an aftercare program that protects you. Those who finish their treatment programs can join an alumni community program like ours, which provides you the opportunity to interact with peers and staff.
You can attend team events, participate in various initiatives, build relationships, and receive support from other members who are also in recovery. Additionally, you can take the opportunity to be supportive of others if you choose to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups will always be an important component of long-term recovery because social structures encourage lasting sobriety. A couple of the most successful support groups are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, which both utilize the 12-steps to support those in recovery via regular meetings. When you attend local support group meetings you will hear, and learn from, the recovery journeys of other people. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to assist them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with vital tools to stay sober, allowing them to take responsibility for their life.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone in a family unit is affected by addiction in the home, and some to a greater extent than others. All members of the family unit need guidance with a household addiction, not just the individual struggling with addiction.
Participating in family support groups can help you to manage the situation better, and also empower you to provide greater support to those struggling with addiction. Your family members will benefit from support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
