What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

Integrated rehab treatment is usually the ideal manner in which to overcome the primary causes of drug and alcohol use disorders. Identifying coping mechanisms to treat the primary causes of your substance dependency is just as crucial as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
Residential addiction treatment programs require you to remain on the same property that you are receiving treatments in. Having Access to 24/7 support and addiction treatment is obviously one of the major benefits. There is notable value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully engaged in the rehabilitation program, because you are not vulnerable to the triggers and stressors that may cause you to abuse drugs.
By remaining in a secure and supportive environment, you have a higher chance of finishing your addiction treatment program without relapse and its associated risks. If you have an intense substance dependency, or you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential rehab program is strongly recommended.
Taking part in a residential treatment program is an effective way to treat addiction, and sustaining it will require ongoing focus because maintaining recovery is difficult during the first year. After you finish your residential treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you consider what you want from your new sober life.

Detox Only Programs
With the help of a medically-assisted detox you can eliminate alcohol or drugs from your system with safety in mind and put an end to to physical dependence. As your body stabilizes without needing the drug it was dependent on, symptoms of withdrawal typically begin.
This initiates the rehab phase, which continues as you come to terms with the root reasons for your dependency in order to avoid repeating these damaging cycles in the early stages of recovery. Many substances drive withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after they have been eliminated from your body. Rehab will help you learn important skills that are designed so that you protect yourself from relapse.

Your provider’s terms and conditions will determine how much cover you can claim for. Before taking part in a program, you should speak to your insurance provider to learn how much cover you can make a claim against. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page you can learn what cover you are entitled to.
If you choose not get cover from your insurance provider, you will need to pay the cost of treatment yourself. It may be possible to negotiate a payment plan if the total cost is a barrier to you receiving treatment.
