Private Residential Programs in Cerritos, CA

A residential treatment program requires you to live at the treatment center and receive all your treatment on the property. It is unquestionably beneficial to have access to 24/7 support and treatment options. If you leave your home and move into a rehab center, you can remove yourself from exposure to triggers that may have influenced your decision to abuse drugs or alcohol.

When the environment around you is supportive, your chance of relapse is much smaller and you are more likely to finish your addiction treatment program. Inpatient rehab programs are useful for clients with intense drug and alcohol dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. We know that the first year of recovery can be crucial and after a residential treatment program, you will need to stay focused so that you can maintain long term sobriety. Once the inpatient program is complete you will have the skills to be more independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.

Our admissions team is ready to answer your questions.

Sober Living Programs

You can learn the skills needed to exercise control over your life by participating in a sober living program, which will support you through the transitional period. This is done by:

  1. Sending a house manager to see how you are doing regularly
  2. Fostering the sorts of behaviors that are expected in recovery
  3. Working on supportive and beneficial relations with others in recovery

Outpatient Programs

By taking part in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, because you can visit the rehabilitation center for treatment weekly and maintain work or family commitments.

Outpatient programs typically feature:

  1. Education on drug or alcohol dependence
  2. Therapy and psychological interventions involving group and individual therapy – An outpatient program may last anywhere from 3-4 months to a year, depending on your requirements.

Detox Only Programs

The first stage of any treatment program is detoxification, which eliminates all traces of substances from your body and deals with your dependency on it. During detox you will experience withdrawal symptoms as the system stabilizes to function without the substance it was physically reliant on.

This process of detoxification marks the beginning of your rehab process, following which you will start to tackle the underlining causes of your addictive behavior to avoid a repeat of those same cycles. Given that most substances result in withdrawal, you may experience withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a period of time after your detox program is complete. You can limit the risk of relapse by learning coping strategies for your new life in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you make the decision to continue with private treatment, you can start a claim through your healthcare provider or pay the treatment costs directly. In most instances, insurance companies will allow you to claim for the costs of treatment, or at least some of the costs, including a drug or alcohol detox regime, rehab program, and aftercare programs.

The amount of cover you can get will be set by your provider and the details of your policy. It is always advised that you inquire about the amount you can claim before enrolling in a rehab program. To find out what you could claim through your insurance provider, please click on our Verify Your Insurance page here – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/.

Clients will be responsible for the cost of rehab if they do not claim via their insurance policy. Some addiction treatment centers can provide payment plans to those who are unable to pay the full cost of rehab.
