Drug and alcohol use disorders are challenging to address when they affect you or someone close to you. You can treat dependence even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is attainable through professional rehab intervention strategies.
This Guide will explain holistic approaches to addiction rehabilitation and how you or a loved one can begin and maintain recovery from addiction.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we mention addiction ‘rehab’, we mean the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments applied to tackle dependencies on prescription drugs, recreational and illegal substances.
There is no ‘single right’ approach to treatment because it needs to be unique to your lifestyle and may incorporate medical detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, and long-term aftercare programs.

Private Residential Programs in Koreatown, CA
When remaining on the same property that you are undergoing your rehab treatments in, you are part of a residential treatment program. Access to 24/7 support and treatment is one of the key benefits.
Moving out of your home environment and entering a treatment center can cushion you against triggers that contribute your substance abuse. You can finish your addiction treatment program and avoid relapse more effectively when you remain in a controlled environment which is safe and supportive.
When you struggle with a strong substance dependency, or suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential rehab program should be considered. Taking part in a residential rehab program is the most effective way to treat addiction, and sustaining it will require ongoing focus because maintaining recovery is a challenge during the first few months. After you complete your residential treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you start to think about what you want from your future.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs help those in recovery build further control over their lives, with support and some guidance. These programs feature:
- A house manager checking in on you and your progress
- Establishing guidelines for positive behavior in recovery
- Getting guidance and companionship from other people who will have similar life experiences
Outpatient rehab programs provide flexibility because you can continue your job or family requirements, while attending the rehab center for treatments.
Outpatient programs usually provide:
- Educational workshops on drug use
- Counseling and therapy which includes individual or group sessions – Your individual needs often determine the length of your outpatient program, which could extend from three months to over year.
Detox Only Programs
The need for alcohol or drug detox from your body is the first step of rehab, as it rids the body of the substance and puts an end to your physical dependence. During the stage of detox you will experience withdrawal symptoms as your body begins to function without the substance it was physically reliant on.
This is just the start of the rehab process, and the next steps are to identify and overcome the underlying problems that lead to your addiction, so that those same issues do not happen again. Once alcohol or drugs have been removed from your system you may notice some cravings for it, as well as some withdrawal symptoms for for a few weeks. Rehab therapy will help you master important skills that are designed so that you reduce the risk of relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you choose to enroll for private rehab, you will need to pay for treatment yourself or begin a claim through your healthcare policy. Many private insurance providers will contribute to some of the costs of a rehab program, which would include a medical detox, rehab program and aftercare provisions.
The amount of cover you can claim will be contingent on your healthcare provider and policy type. We suggest finding out how much cover you are entitled to before enrolling in a program. To find out what you could qualify for, go to our Verify Your Insurance page.
If you decide not to claim from your insurance provider, you must pay for your treatment. Some treatment facilities can provide payment plans to clients who can’t pay the full amount.
State Funded Programs
If you are battling substance use disorder and have limited resources to pay privately for it, you should search for a state-funded rehabilitation program.
By using funds provided from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these programs can subsidize your recovery including:
- Programs for a safe detox (medically-supervised if required.
- Addiction counseling, therapy and aftercare support services
State-funded treatment programs provide support to individuals with little to no disposable income or do not have health insurance. So that you can quality, you will need to provide information regarding:
- Living arrangements

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Koreatown
You may undergo some initial difficulties once you leave rehab. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support. Your coping skills will be put to the test when you leave rehab, as you may experience some challenges that you still need to learn to deal with. 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. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs in Koreatown
Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. By participating in extended support, you can limit the risk of relapse which hurts up to 60% of clients who have recently finished a program. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.
Once you complete your rehab program, you will consider the treatment services most beneficial to your needs long-term, and an aftercare program will be designed to help you sustain it.
One of the many benefits of finishing rehab is joining an alumni community program, which allows you to liaise with peers and staff as part of a community. You will benefit from access to mentorship and support from other individuals in recovery, as well as take part in other events. This gives you an opportunity to reciprocate and offer encouragement to other members.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups enable lasting recovery because they recognize the necessary role that social connections play in supporting addiction recovery. The 12-step model is continued by support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which have a long history in supporting individuals in recovery by offering group meetings. You will benefit from lived experiences of others and share your own unique experiences. Companionship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Each family member is negatively impacted, to a varying degree, by addiction issues.
Support is crucial for all members of a family, not only the person struggling with the addiction.
Family support groups teach you affective coping tools for your own life and help you to offer greater support to the individual who has the issues with substance dependence.
Examples of Family and Child Support Groups are:
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
