Alcohol and drug addictions introduce challenges when you or someone you love experiences them. But addiction is a treatable disease and by using proven and professional rehab interventions, recovery from drug and alcohol addiction can be achieved.
In this guide we will explain how an holistic rehabilitation program can enable you or someone you love to begin and sustain a life without drugs or alcohol.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
The term substance ‘rehab’ is applicable to all of the medical and psychological treatments used to help people who are struggling with dependencies on recreational, illegal and prescription substances.
There is no ‘single right’ approach to rehab because it should be tailored to your requirements and may include medical detox, residential and outpatient programs, and long-term relapse prevention programs.

By integrating treatment approaches, professionals can work with you to isolate and treat the main causes of your substance dependencies. By learning useful coping strategies you can heal from substance abuse while addressing the primary symptoms of dependence.
Private Residential Programs
Staying at a treatment center and undergoing all of your treatments there is called being in a residential rehab program. Having Access to daily support and addiction treatment is no doubt one of the major benefits. By being away from your home and residing at the treatment facility you can safeguard yourself from the stressors that contributed to your drug or alcohol abuse.
When you reside in a safe and secure environment you can protect yourself against relapse and increase the likelihood of finishing your addiction rehab program.
Inpatient rehab programs are recommended for patients with serious drug and alcohol dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. Recovery from addiction is achievable if you take part in a residential treatment program, but if you expect to maintain sober living you are going to need to rise above the challenges that are associated with the first year of recovery. Completing your residential rehab program is the beginning of your new, independent life and you need to focus on goal-setting for your substance-free future.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the required guidance to help those recovering from addiction achieve what they need from life. They help you through:
- A house manager who will visit you regularly
- Guiding you on the right way to behave in recovery
- Encouraging positive friendships with others in recovery who recognize your challenges and your experiences
Outpatient rehab programs are considered to be flexible by allowing you to have treatment at the treatment center and maintain any work or life commitments.
Outpatient programs usually feature:
- Education about your drug or alcohol use
- Talking therapy and counseling by means of group sessions and one-to-one sessions with a skilled addiction therapist. – Outpatient programs typically run from three months to more than a year, and your personal needs will determine the length of treatment.
Detox Only Programs
The benefits of a medically-assisted detox are many, because you can remove drugs and alcohol from your system with safety in mind and put an end to to physical dependence. As your body gets used to functioning without the substance in your body, you may experience withdrawal symptoms.
Once you overcome the most challenging aspects of physical withdrawal you will enter the second part of your recovery journey, working to heal from the underlying causes of psychological dependency in order to put a stop to the cycle of abuse. It is likely that you will experience some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for a few weeks after your drug or alcohol detox has ended. You can reduce the risk of relapse by learning coping strategies for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you want to enroll for private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or make a claim via your health insurance provider. Many insurance providers will cover at least parts of your rehab treatment, including detox, rehab therapy, and any on-going support services you may need. The total amount you are able to claim is based on your policy rules and your provider.
We advise you understand how much cover you can claim for prior to enrolling in a program. Our Verify Your Insurance page will help you to determine the amount of cover you are eligible for.
If you do not claim against your policy you must pay the center directly for your treatment programme. Many treatment centers offer payment plans to clients who will struggle to pay the full cost of treatment upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you are struggling with drug or alcohol use disorder and do not have the financial means to enter private rehab, you may be eligible for a state-funded addiction rehabilitation program.
With the use of stipends from state, federal and Medicaid budgets, state-funded programs can remove financial hurdles to treatment by providing:
- Services for a safe detox (medically-supervised if required.

As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Relapse may happen in up to 60% of people, and because of the unpredictability of life post-rehab, having aftercare is an important part of your long term recovery.
As you get closer to finishing your treatment program, you should consider which services will be beneficial for your long term recovery. We help you to develop an aftercare program that empowers you. Alumni programs are a useful benefit to completing rehab and allows you community access to ex-clients and staff members.
You can attend addiction recovery events, join groups and receive advice and encouragement from others who are also in recovery as well. You might also want to return the favor by showing support towards other individuals in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Through support group sessions you will enable a support structure that is important to your long-term sobriety. By taking part in support groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will follow the 12-step model by attending local meetings for life-long support.
During support group meetings, individual members open up and share their experiences and empower others. By building friendships and committing to the programme, individuals in recovery can feel empowered to take responsibility for their actions and protect those around them.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Each person in a family is affected, to a varying degree, by the individual struggling with addiction. Support is essential for all members of a family, not only the individual struggling with the addiction.
Support groups for families has two key benefits: you can help yourself and the person overcoming substance dependence.
Family members will benefit from participating in support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
