What are the treatment options available in Pasadena?

By integrating treatment options, addiction specialists can help you to isolate and treat the root causes of your substance addictions. Although treating the symptoms of dependence is vital, you also must learn coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your substance dependency.

Private Residential Programs

Living at a addiction center and undergoing all of your treatments there is called being in a residential rehab program. One of the primary benefits is having access to round-the-clock treatment and support. There is enormous value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully engaged in the addiction treatment program, because you are not sensitive to the stressors and triggers that may have caused you to abuse drugs.

You can complete your addiction treatment program and avoid relapse more easily when you remain in a secure environment which is protective and supportive. If you suffer with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or an intense dependency, an inpatient program is better suited to meet your rehab needs.

Recovery from addiction is attainable if you take part in a residential rehab program, however if you wish to maintain sobriety you will have to face up to the difficulties that come with the early stages of recovery. Upon completion of your inpatient addiction treatment, you have to consider what you’d like from your new life, as you work towards becoming more independent.

  2. Counseling services and therapy by means of group support or one-on-one sessions – The minimum duration of outpatient treatment is three months and continue for longer than a year, this is based on your own requirements.

Detox Only Programs

The early steps of any treatment program is detoxification, which removes all traces of substances from your body and begins healing your physical dependency on it. During detox you will go through withdrawal symptoms as the system begins to function independently of the substance it was physically reliant on.

This marks the beginning of the rehab phase, which continues as you challenge the reasons for your dependency in order to avoid repeating the cycle in the early stages of recovery. Detox can lead to some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for a few weeks after your detox phase has completed. You can limit the risk of relapse by developing coping strategies for long-term recovery success.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private rehab must be to be paid with your own funds or claimed through your insurance policy. Most insurance companies contribute to at least part of the costs associated with rehab, including a medically-supervised detox, rehab therapy and medical supplies, as well as post-treatment support. Your provider’s terms and conditions will provide details on the amount of cover you can claim for.

We suggest finding out how much cover you have before enrolling in a program. To find out what you could qualify for, go to our Verify Your Insurance page here.

If you choose not get cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the treatment centre directly. Many rehab centers provide payment plans to clients when costs are unaffordable.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Pasadena

Leaving a rehab center and returning home can prove difficult for people in the early stages of recovery. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals.

As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address. 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. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Relapse can happen in 60% of cases, and due to the natural events of life post-rehab, having extended support is an important part of your recovery journey.

As you approach the completion of your treatment program, you will be asked about the therapies and services that will help support long-term recovery, and we will create an aftercare program to guide you. Alumni programs are an extra benefit to completing treatment and gives you community access to former clients and staff members.

You can attend special events, take part in a number of initiatives, build connections, and receive support from other members in recovery. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other ex-clients within your network if that feels right.

You will learn from other people’s experiences and share your own at support group meetings. Through companionship and staying committed to the programme, those in recovery can feel empowered to take responsibility for their actions and protect those that love them.
