Drug and alcohol dependence are difficult to address when they impact you or someone close to you. Through proven rehabilitation strategies, drug addiction & alcoholism can be treated for long-term recovery.
We will detail how a sober future is achievable for you or a loved one if an holistic treatment approach is adopted.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we talk about addiction ‘rehabilitation’, we mean the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments used to manage dependencies on illegal substances, prescription medications and alcohol.
Addiction rehab offers higher chances of long term recovery success when it is customized to the individual needs of the client and includes medically-assisted detoxification, residential or outpatient programs, and relapse management techniques also known as aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in Compton?
An integrated approach is generally the most effective way to address and heal the underlying causes of drug addiction and alcohol dependence. It is vital to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be learnt, in order for you to cope with the problems that lead to the substance dependency.
Private Residential Programs
Residential addiction treatment programs require you to stay at the treatment center and have your treatments on-site. It is obviously beneficial to have access to round-the-clock care and treatment options. By being away from your home environment and staying at the rehab facility you will protect yourself from the triggers that contributed to your substance dependence.
You can complete your rehab program and avoid relapse more effectively when you remain in a controlled environment which is safe and supportive.
Inpatient addiction treatment programs are good for clients with serious drug and alcohol dependencies, co-occurring illnesses or dual diagnosis. Enrolling in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to treat addiction, and sustaining it will require persistent focus because addiction recovery is hard during the first few months. Completing your residential rehab program is the beginning of your newfound independence and you will focus on setting goals for your substance-free future.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the required guidance to help people in recovery achieve what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They support you through:
- Regular guidance from the house manager
- Developing guidelines to manage your behavior in recovery
- Guiding you to develop important relationships with peers who are having similar experiences to you
Outpatient addiction treatment programs provide flexibility because you can carry on attending job or family requirements, and visit the rehab center for treatments.
Outpatient programs help with:
- Education on misusing drugs
- Group therapy and individual counseling as drivers for therapeutic intervention – You must be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may remain in it for longer than a year if necessary.
Detox Only Programs
The process of alcohol or drug detox from your system is the first phase of rehab, as it eliminates the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. Symptoms of withdrawal will start during the detox phase and your body needs to adapt without alcohol or substances it was dependent on.
Upon completion of the detox phase, you will press forward in your recovery journey, as you come to terms with the primary causes that contributed to your dependency, helping you manage and avoid it long-term. It is normal to encounter withdrawal and cravings for a while after the substance has been eradicated from your system. During rehab you will identify the coping skills for long-term abstinence, so that you can avoid relapse in the future.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private rehab must be to be paid with your own funds or claimed from your insurance provider. Most insurance companies contribute to some of the costs associated with drug and alcohol rehab, such as a medically-assisted detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as post-treatment support. The amount you can claim will depend on your provider and your policy agreement.
We advise that you check to see the amount you can claim against your policy before enrolling in a treatment program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can learn what cover you are able to claim.
If you prefer not to claim against your insurance, you have to pay for your rehab directly. Some treatment facilities can offer a payment plan to clients who can’t afford to pay the whole cost of rehab.
State Funded Programs
State-funded addiction treatment programs are recommended to people who are ready to tackle a substance or alcohol addiction but have limited resources to enroll in a treatment program.
Through Medicaid and state budget funding, these programs can support your recovery by including:
- Medically supervised drug or alcohol detox
- Rehabilitation services and aftercare support
These types of programs are designed to support people in low income households or those with little to no health cover. In order to enroll you need:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Compton
Remaining active in your recovery can be overwhelming when you return to normal life after completing addiction treatment. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals.
After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. If you experienced a severe dependency and have not developed a social structure to return to when you leave rehab, you may find long term recovery more of a challenge. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Because it’s hard to predict what could happen in life day-to-day, up to 60% of clients in recovery relapse, making relapse prevention & aftercare an essential part of recovery.
As you draw closer to completing your rehab program, we will collaborate with you to design an aftercare package that includes the services that are helpful to your long-term recovery. One of the many benefits of finishing rehab is taking part in an alumni community program, which entitles you to liaise with former clients and staff in a community based project.
Via this network you will have access to special events and receive support and advice from other ex-clients who are in recovery as well. You may choose to pay the favor forward, by offering your support to other active members in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups are paramount to long-term sobriety as they focus on the need for social interactions in addiction recovery. To maintain addiction recovery, can receive long-term recovery support if you participate in groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous and attend any 12-step meetings.
During local meetings, you can share and learn from other people’s journeys in recovery. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to help them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with the important tools to stay sober, and allow them to be accountable for their recovery.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone living within a family unit with addiction issues are hurt, in various ways, by its negative impact. All members of a family need help with a household addiction, not just the addicted person.
Family support groups provide you with vital coping lessons for your own life and help you to offer more support to the loved one who has the dependency.
Family members can benefit from joining support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
