It can feel so heartbreaking when you or someone you care about has struggles with alcohol or drug addiction, that you don’t know how to get help. Fortunately long term sobriety can be acquired if you utilize proven rehabilitation methods because addiction is a treatable illness.
Read more on how integrated rehabilitation services can assist yourself or a loved one in starting and maintaining recovery from substance dependence.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a holistic treatment program that introduces both counseling and medical interventions to treat both legal and illegal substance dependencies. Rehab approaches are best when they are personalized to your lifestyle needs, and may encompass inpatient programs, outpatient programs, medical detoxes and aftercare support programs.

What are the treatment options available in Burbank?
Identifying and healing the root causes behind your substance or alcohol dependence can be achieved through an integrated treatment model. Symptoms of substance misuse should be treated but learning new life skills encourages you to face the problems that started your addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Private Residential Programs
Remaining at a addiction rehab center and having all of your treatments there is known as a residential rehab program. The key benefit is the ability to have holistic support and treatment 24 hours a day.
By being away from your home environment and staying at the rehab centre you will safeguard yourself from the triggers that contributed to your substance dependence. You are far less likely to relapse when you finish your residential treatment program in a controlled facility where the environment is supportive. If you struggle with co-occurring illnesses, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency on drugs or alcohol, a residential program is better suited to meet your treatment needs.
An inpatient addiction treatment program will help you in getting sober, but it’s important to note that maintaining sobriety requires constant effort as the first few months of recovery are usually challenging. When you have finished your residential addiction treatment program you will want to be more autonomous and set goals for your new life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are designed with the needed guidance to help recovering individuals achieve what they want from their new life without substance dependence. They help you through:
- Check-ins daily from a house manager
- Establishing boundaries for good recovery behavior
- Nurturing new relationships with other people who will be going through similar kinds of challenges
Outpatient rehab programs offer more flexibility as you can continue with work commitments and live at home, but you visit the rehab center for any treatments.
Outpatient programs offer recovery services through:
- Education on drug dependence
- Therapy and psychological interventions that include group and individual therapy – Outpatient programs may last anywhere from 3-4 months to a year, this depends on your needs.
Detox Only Programs
Taking part in a detoxification program is a vital hurdle in rehab as it helps address your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your body. As your body starts to work without needing the substance it was dependent on, symptoms of withdrawal typically begin.
This is just the beginning of the rehab journey, the next phase is to confront and manage the underlying causes of your addiction, so that the pattern does not repeat. A lot of substances result in protracted cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through detoxification. Your chances of relapse will be limited as you learn the important skills necessary for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment should be settled directly or claimed via your healthcare policy. Many private insurance companies will contribute to a portion of the costs of a rehab program, which would include a detox plan, therapy program and aftercare support. The amount of cover you are entitled to claim will be contingent on your healthcare provider and policy type.
We suggest that you identify how much cover you can access before you register for a rehab program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can learn what cover you are able to claim. If you choose not to claim from your policy, you must pay for your treatment. Many rehab centers extend payment plans to clients who find the cost to be prohibitive.
State Funded Programs
If you are battling with drug or alcohol dependency and do not have the financial means to fund private rehab, you may be suitable for a state-funded drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. With the help of funds from a combination of state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these programs remove hurdles to treatment by offering:
- Safe & confidential medical detox
- Addiction treatments which includes relapse prevention programs
State-funded treatment programs provide relief to people who reside in low income households or do not have health insurance. To qualify you will need to provide information regarding:
- Evidence that you are a resident of the US
- Proof of your income
- Proof of address
- Medical details about your substance misuse

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Burbank
Being active in addiction recovery can feel challenging once you complete your treatment program. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. Once you leave rehab there may be new triggers that put your coping skills to the test. In our experience, clients with intense dependencies and those who do not develop the necessary support structure find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. Because no one can predict what’s going to happen in day-to-day life, as many as 60% of clients in recovery relapse, this makes extended aftercare an essential component of long-term recovery. Once you are near completion of your treatment program you must give some thought to the counseling and therapies most useful to long-term abstinence and an aftercare package will be developed to help you.
Alumni programs are an added benefit to completing rehab and allows you community support with ex-clients and staff members. You will have access to Alumni events and receive support and encouragement from individuals who are in recovery long-term. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other former clients within your network if that feels right.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups really are crucial to long-term sobriety as they monopolize on the importance of social connections in recovery. The 12-step model is maintained by support groups like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous which have a long history in supporting people in recovery by offering regular meetings.
When you attend support groups, you will have the ability to share your own experiences in recovery and listen to other members’ experiences. Through companionship and committing to the programme, those in recovery can feel empowered to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them most.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Some individuals in an addicted household are affected more than others. The individual with the dependency needs support, but other family members also need help. By taking part in family support groups, you will learn to manage stressful situations more efficiently, and be able to support your family member recovering from addiction. Family members can benefit from joining support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
