What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

When we speak about addiction ‘rehab’, we mean the combination of medical and psychotherapeutic treatments applied to resolve dependencies on illegal substances, prescription medications and alcohol.

There is no ‘single right’ approach to addiction rehab because it should be unique to your lifestyle and may incorporate detox, residential and outpatient programs, and extended aftercare programs.

What are the treatment options available in Gardena?

Integrated rehab is typically the most effective manner in which to deal with the primary sources of alcohol and drug dependencies. While treating the causes of addiction is vital, you also must learn coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol dependence.

Private Residential Programs in Gardena, CA

A residential rehab program is when you live at the treatment facility and receive all necessary treatment within the property. A primary benefit is the ability to receive holistic support and treatment throughout the day.

Leaving your home environment and entering a treatment facility can protect you against triggers that negatively impact your substance abuse. Completing your rehab program and avoiding relapse is a great deal easier if you stay in a safe and supportive environment.

A residential addiction treatment program delivers the best solution when you have a dual diagnosis, an intense substance dependency or co-occurring conditions. Taking part in a residential rehab program is an effective way to a sober life, and sustaining it demands ongoing focus because maintaining recovery is hard during the early stages. After you complete your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you start to think about what you want from your future.

Do You Need Help?

Sober Living Programs

Support and guidance are provided during a sober living program in order to control your future goals better. The programs often have:

  1. A house manager who visits you regularly
  2. Supporting you on the best way to behave in recovery
  3. Fostering necessary friendships with others in recovery who can empathize with your experiences

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient rehab programs are flexible because you can maintain job or family obligations, while visiting the rehab center for treatments.

Outpatient programs offer support through:

  1. Education on the abuse of substances
  2. Group therapy and individual counseling as vehicles for addiction recovery – You must be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may continue the program for a year if necessary.

Detox Only Programs

Participating in a detoxification program is a vital stage in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by removing substances from your body. As your body returns to normal function without substances in your body, you typically experience the symptoms of withdrawal.

This starts the process of your rehab process, following which you will begin to tackle the underlining causes of your psychological dependence to avoid repeating those same cycles. It is possible to still experience withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a period of time after your detox phase has finished. Rehab therapy will help you master life-changing skills that are designed so that you reduce the risk of relapse.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private rehab will need to be self-funded or claimed directly through your insurance. Typically, insurance companies will allow you to claim against the costs of rehab, or at least some of the costs, including a drug or alcohol detox regime, rehab therapy, and relapse prevention programs.

The amount you can claim will be set by your provider and your policy. We suggest that you find out how much cover you can claim for prior to enrolling in a program. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you find out how much cover you will get.

If you prefer not to claim against your insurance, you have to pay for your treatment out of pocket. Many treatment centers provide payment plans to clients who may find paying upfront for treatment a challenge.

State-Funded Programs

State-funded rehab programs have been created to support individuals without the financial resources to overcome alcohol addiction or substance use disorder.

With the support provided with funds from federal and state resources as well as Medicaid, these programs may help with treatments such as:

  1. Medically-supervised drug/alcohol detox
  2. Rehab treatment and relapse prevention services.

State-funded treatment programs are designed to support people with little disposable income or those with no health cover. For you to enroll you will need:

  1. Proof that you are a US resident
  2. Proof of earnings
  3. Proof of address
  4. Medical details about your addiction

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Gardena

Leaving a rehab center and returning home can present challenges for people starting out in recovery. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support.

When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. 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. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.
