Because of the challenges that are connected with drug or alcohol addiction, many individuals do not know where to begin. By using professional treatment services it is possible to treat drug and alcohol addiction just like other diseases and achieve long term sobriety.
On this page we detail how an holistic rehabilitation program can enable you or someone you care about to begin and sustain addiction recovery.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is a broad term that describes the therapeutic and medical treatments that are utilized to help people heal their dependencies on illegal, recreational and prescription drugs.
Rehab treatments are best when they are personalized to your specific needs, and may encompass residential programs, outpatient care, medically-assisted detoxes and aftercare support programs.

Private Residential Programs in Palmdale
Residential rehabilitation programs require you to stay on the same property that you are receiving treatments in. One of the biggest pros is access to 24/7 treatment and guidance.
By being away from your home environment and staying at the treatment facility you can protect yourself from the triggers that contributed to your substance abuse. By remaining in a secure and supportive environment, you have a better chance of finishing your addiction treatment program while limiting the odds of relapse and its potential risks.
Residential treatment programs are generally more effective when your substance dependency is chronic and intense, or if you struggle with co-occurring illnesses or a dual diagnosis. Taking part in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to treat addiction, and maintaining it requires persistent focus because addiction recovery is a challenge during the first year. Upon completion of your inpatient rehab program, you will transition towards greater independence as you consider your goals for your new substance-free life.
Do You Need Help?
We can help you recover.
Sober Living Programs
You can develop the skills required to stay sober by taking part in a sober living program, which will support you through the transitional period. This will be achieved by:
- A house manager to check in regularly with you
- Develop boundaries for your behavior in recovery
- Support and new friendships from those who are going through the same process as you.
The flexibility of outpatient treatment programs means that you do not have to stop work commitments or family commitments, as you can come to the rehabilitation center and have regular treatments in your own time.
Outpatient programs help with:
- Education around substance misuse
- Counseling services and therapy by facilitating group settings or one-to-one sessions – The duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and continue for longer than a year, this will depend on your individual needs.
Detox Only Programs
The initial phase of any treatment program is detoxification, which removes any traces of substances from your system and tackles your dependency on it. You will experience withdrawal symptoms as a normal reaction to the absence of substances in your system.
This detox phase marks the start of your rehab process, and the next steps work to tackle and overcome the root reasons for your addiction, so that those same patterns do not repeat. It is possible that you will develop some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for some time after your detox phase has ended.
Your chances of relapsing can be mitigated as you build on the skills required for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
The cost of private treatment may be claimed back through your insurance policy or funded through your own personal means. In most instances, insurance providers will contribute to the costs of rehab, at least partially, including a medically assisted detox, rehab therapy, and post-treatment care.
The extent of cover given will differ based on the fine print of your policy and your provider’s. We always suggest that you confirm how much will be covered for prior to enrolling in a program. Check out our Verify Your Insurance page to learn more about the cover you qualify for.
If you choose not to claim against your insurance provider, you will need to fund your treatment. Some rehab facilities provide payment options to clients so that they can pay for treatment in instalments.
State Funded Programs in Palmdale
If you are suffering with substance or alcohol addiction and little to no financial means to enter private rehab, you may be suitable for a state-funded drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

- Medically supervised drug or alcohol detox

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Palmdale
When you leave treatment, you may need some time to adjust to your new life. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. When you depart rehab there will be some new challenges that you will have to learn to cope with. Long term sobriety is more difficult to maintain when you have had a severe dependency and do not have social support when you leave rehab. Guidance and aftercare support is integral in the early stages of recovery to help prevent relapse.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. Because life doesn’t always work out how we want it to, and 60% of individuals may relapse upon finishing rehab, staying active in an aftercare program is vital support for you when life gets tough. As you draw closer to the end of your rehab program, we will work you to develop an aftercare package that includes a range of services that are useful to your long-term recovery.
One such benefit of completing rehab is the ability to join an alumni community program, which entitles you to liaise with peers and staff as a community based recovery community. You will enjoy access to mentorship and support from other people in recovery, and take part in other events. You may also choose to return the favor by supporting others.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups remain key to maintaining recovery as they monopolize on the importance of social interactions in addiction recovery. Recovery support groups like AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) offer regular support utilizing the 12 step principles and regular meetings.
Attending support group meetings provides you with an opportunity to you to learn from other individuals and inspire others with your own experiences. By building friendships and committing to the programme, those in recovery will feel empowered to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them most.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone living in a family with addiction issues are damaged, in various ways, by its impact. The individual with the addiction needs help, but other members of the household also need help.
Family support groups provide two important benefits: you can help yourself and the individual in the early stages of recovery. Receive help and support for the Family with the following support groups:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
