Alcohol and drug dependencies introduce hurdles when you or someone you care about experiences them. You can treat dependence even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is attainable through professional rehab intervention methods.
Our Guide will explain how integrating addiction treatment approaches can encourage a sober future for yourself or a loved one.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we use the term addiction ‘rehabilitation’, we refer to the combination of medical and psychotherapeutic treatments used to resolve dependencies on alcohol and drugs (including prescription medications).
Rehab treatment is most effective when it is tailored to your own needs and incorporates a medically-supervised detox, residential and outpatient services, as well as aftercare support.

What are the treatment options available in Redondo Beach?
By integrating treatment approaches, addiction specialists can work with you to identify and treat the root causes of your substance dependencies. By learning useful coping mechanisms you can overcome substance abuse while treating the main symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
If you reside within the property where you are receiving counseling, you are part of a residential treatment program. It is extremely beneficial to have 24-hour care and treatment options. By displacing yourself from your home and living at the rehab facility you can protect yourself against the stressors that keep you trapped in the cycle of drug or alcohol abuse.
You are far less susceptible to relapse if you complete your residential treatment program in a secure facility where the environment is supportive.
If you suffer with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or strong substances including alcohol, a residential program is best suited to meet your treatment needs. You can start the initial steps to a sober life by enrolling in a residential program, however, to overcome the challenges of the first year of addiction recovery, you have to commit to a new life of sobriety. After your residential addiction treatment, you need to consider what you’d like from your new life, as you transition to becoming more independent.

We work together towards recovery.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living rehab programs help you to have more stability in your life, with guidance and supportive structures. Sober living programs include:
- Sending a house manager to see how you are doing daily
- Developing the sorts of behaviors that are required in recovery
- Building on supportive and beneficial connections with other peers in recovery
Outpatient rehab programs are typically more flexible because they allow you to have therapy at the treatment facility while you continue any job or life commitments.
Outpatient programs are known for:
- 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
A detox program is the first step in drug or alcohol rehab and is necessary to eliminate your physical dependency on a substance by removing any trace of it from your body. As your body becomes accustomed to not needing the substance it was dependent on, you will start to have withdrawal symptoms.
This marks the start of the recovery journey, following which you will start to overcome the underlining causes of your addictive behavior to avoid repeating those same cycles. A number of substances cause protracted cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through a detox programme. You can limit the odds of relapse by developing coping strategies to apply to your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you choose private options, you can self-fund or claim through your healthcare insurance Many insurance providers will allow you to claim at least some of the costs of treatment, including detox, rehab programs, and any interventions you may need. The extent of cover offered will differ based on the details of your policy as well as your provider’s terms of agreement.
It is a good idea to find out about your cover prior to enrolling in a rehab program. To find out what you could be entitled to, go to our Verify Your Insurance page.
If you choose not to claim from your insurance provider, you will need to pay for your treatment. Many treatment providers are willing to extend payment plans to clients when costs are unaffordable.
State Funded Programs
If you want to address your substance or alcohol addiction but you are unable to pay for private treatment, you should consider a state-funded rehabilitation program. With the help of state funding and Medicaid, these programs can support your recovery with:
- Medically supervised drug or alcohol detox
- Rehabilitation services and aftercare support
State-funded treatment programs are designed to support those in low income households or those with little to no health insurance. In order to apply you will need:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Redondo Beach
Maintaining your recovery can feel overwhelming when returning to home life after completing addiction treatment. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals.
Once you leave rehab there may be new triggers that put your coping skills to the test. 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. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Unfortunately Relapse may happen in up to 60% of people, and because of the unpredictability of life post-treatment, having aftercare is an important part of your recovery journey.
When your rehab program is close to finishing, we will discuss the therapies and counselling that are supportive of your long-term recovery and an appropriate aftercare plan will be devised to assist you. After finishing your addiction treatment program you will be eligible for joining an alumni community program so you can remain close to staff and ex-clients.
You will enjoy access to mentorship and support from other individuals in recovery and also attend other Alumni events. You might also want to return the favor by being supportive of other members.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups enable active recovery because they recognize the necessary role that social connections play in supporting addiction recovery. By joining a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can continue the 12 steps by attending nearby meetings for lifelong support. You will be empowered by lived experiences of others and share your own challenges in recovery. Companionship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Those living within a family unit with addiction issues are damaged, in various ways, by its negative impact. Support is critical for all family members, not only the individual struggling with the dependency.
Joining family support groups has two important benefits: you can support yourself and the individual overcoming addiction. 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
