It can feel so challenging when you or someone you care about has a problem with alcohol or drug use, that you don’t know how to get help. Although addiction is a disease, it can be managed when evidence-based rehabilitation methods are explored. Long term recovery from addiction is achievable.
The following page will explain holistic approaches to treatment and how you or a loved one can begin and maintain a sober, drug and alcohol free life.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we refer to addiction ‘rehab’, it encompasses the psychological interventions and medical treatments required to tackle dependencies on substances such as opiates and illegal drugs including heroin.
Rehab is most effective when it is tailored to suit your unique lifestyle involving a medical detox, residential and outpatient programs, as well as aftercare support.

Integrated addiction treatment is usually the best manner in which to deal with the primary causes of alcohol and drug use disorders. It is crucial to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping methods need to be implemented, in order for you to cope with the problems that lead to the substance dependency.
Private Residential Programs
Residential rehabilitation programs require you to reside on the same property that you are undergoing treatments in. Its core benefit is that you will continuously receive integrated treatment and support all through the day.
If you leave your home and move into a treatment facility, you can free yourself from exposure to triggers that influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol.
Completing your residential treatment program and avoiding relapse is considerably easier when you reside in a protective and supportive environment. Patients who need treatment for dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders or severe substance dependencies are encouraged to enroll for an inpatient treatment program. We know that the first year of recovery are usually difficult and after a residential rehab program, you must remain focused so that you can maintain recovery. On completion of your residential treatment program, you must transition towards greater independence as you set goals for your new substance-free life.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards recovery.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs help people in recovery build more control over their lives, with a support structure and some guidance. Sober living programs include:
- Daily check-ins from the house manager
- Creating guidelines to help your behavior in recovery
- Helping you to develop strong relationships with peers who will share similar challenges to you
The flexible approach to outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop attending your workplace or family commitments, as you can come to the rehabilitation facility and have regular treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs teach you:
- Education about substance abuse
- Therapeutic support and counseling in the form of group therapy or one-to-one interventions – The duration of any outpatient treatment is unique to your needs and lasts between three months to over a year.
Detox Only Programs
The first phase of a treatment program is detoxification, which removes any traces of substances from your system and deals with your physical dependency on it. You will experience withdrawal symptoms as a normal response to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your body.
Withdrawal marks the beginning of the rehab recovery journey, and should always be followed up by tackling the primary reasons for your addictive behavior, to prevent the same damaging pattern of behaviors. It is possible to still undergo withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a while after your detox program is complete.
Relapse is less of a threat when you are equipped with the coping skills required to navigate your new life in recovery.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide to to opt for private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or start a claim via your health insurance provider. Most insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs associated with addiction rehab, such as a medically-assisted detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as aftercare support.
Your provider along with policy terms and conditions will provide details on the amount of cover you can claim for. It is recommended that you find out about the amount you can claim before enrolling in a rehab program. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you understand how much cover you will get.
If you prefer not to claim against your private health insurance, you must pay for your treatment out of pocket. Many rehab providers are willing to extend payment options to clients who cannot afford the full cost upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you are struggling with substance use disorder but have limited resources to pay privately for it, you may apply for a state-funded addiction treatment program.
These programs work by using government funds from state budgets, Medicaid and federal government to assist recovery and may include:
- Safe & confidential medical detox
- Rehab therapy which includes relapse prevention programs
If you do not have private health insurance or you live in a low income household, you can apply for a state-funded treatment program. You will need to provide:
- You live where you say you do
- How much you earn
- Evidence about your substance or alcohol misuse
- Living in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Redondo Beach
The early stages of your recovery can feel overwhelming when returning to normal life after completing your rehab programme. 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 had a severe dependency or if you leave rehab without the appropriate social support, you will find long term recovery to be more challenging. Relapse can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Because it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen from one day to the next, an estimate of 60% of clients in recovery may relapse, this makes relapse prevention & aftercare an important component of long-term recovery.
Once you are near completion of your rehab program you must consider the counseling and therapies most useful to long-term abstinence and an aftercare package will be created to support you. Alumni programs are a great benefit to completing treatment and gives you community access to ex-clients and staff members.
You will have access to mentorship and support from other individuals in recovery, and attend other events. You might also want to return the favor by offering support to others in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups continue to be an important part of long-term recovery because social structures enable long-lasting sobriety. By joining a group that follows the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive ongoing support through group meetings.
When you attend support groups, you will be able to share your own experiences in recovery and listen to other individuals who are also in recovery. By building friendships and committing to the 12-steps, individuals in recovery can feel encouraged to take responsibility for their actions and protect those that love them most.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone in a family is negatively impacted by a loved one struggling with addiction, some more than others. It’s not just the person with the dependency who is affected, other people in the family need help too.
By joining family support groups, you will manage stress more effectively, and be able to support your loved one recovering from addiction. Some useful support groups for families include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
