It can feel so difficult when you or a loved one has a problem with alcohol or drug use, that you don’t know how to approach it. By using professional addiction rehab services it is possible to treat drug and alcohol addiction just like other illnesses and achieve long term sobriety.
Our Guide will detail how integrating addiction treatment approaches can encourage long-term recovery for yourself or a loved one.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we refer to addiction ‘rehab’, it encompasses the psychological interventions and medical treatments needed to tackle dependencies on substances such as prescription drugs and illegal drugs including meth. Rehab that is unique to your personal needs is successful when it includes medically-managed detox, inpatient programs, outpatient programs and relapse prevention techniques.

What are the treatment options available in Santa Clarita?
An integrated approach is considered the most effective way to address and recover from the underlying causes of substance use disorders and alcohol addiction. Even though treating the symptoms of addiction is important, you also should learn coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol dependence.
Private Residential Programs
By residing on the same property that you are receiving your addiction treatments in, you are taking part in a residential rehab program. The main benefit is the ability to have holistic support and treatment throughout the day.
By taking yourself away from your home and living at the rehab facility you can protect yourself from the triggers that contributed to your drug or alcohol dependence. By having an environment around you that is supportive, you reduce the chance of relapse and you are more likely to finish your residential treatment programme. Clients who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and severe substance dependencies are strongly advised to enroll for an inpatient treatment program.
Taking part in a residential rehab program is an effective way to a sober life, and sustaining it requires ongoing focus because addiction recovery is challenging during the first few months. After you complete your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you consider what you want from your new sober life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living rehab programs enable you to have more control over your life, through guidance and supportive structures. Sober living programs comprise of:
- A house manager who will visit you daily
- Guiding you on the best way to behave in recovery
- Encouraging important relationships with others in recovery who can empathize with your experiences
The flexibility of outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop attending your workplace or family commitments, as you can attend the rehab facility and undergo weekly treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs should provide you with:
- Education about substance dependence
- Therapeutic support and counseling in the form of group therapy and one-to-one interventions – The duration of an outpatient program is customized to your circumstances and lasts from three months to over a year.
Detox Only Programs
Most patients require a medical detox to commence drug rehab, because it tackles physical dependence on substances by removing it from your body. As your body stabilizes without the substance in your system, you typically experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
Withdrawal marks the start of the rehab recovery journey, and must be followed up by overcoming the main reasons for your dependency, to avoid repeating the same pattern of behaviors. Quite a few substances cause protracted cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through drug or alcohol detox. Your odds of relapse are reduced as you build on the necessary skills required to cope with your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide to to opt for private rehab, you will need to pay for treatment yourself or make a claim through your health insurance provider.
Many insurance companies will cover at least parts of your rehab treatment, including medical detox, a rehab program, and any medications you may need. The amount you can claim will be set by your provider and your policy agreement.
We advise that you confirm the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling for treatment. Check out our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ – to find out about the cover you qualify for.
If you do not make a claim from your policy you must pay upfront for your rehab treatment. It may be possible to opt for a payment plan if the total cost is a barrier to you receiving treatment.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehab programs are useful for those who are battling with alcohol or substance addictions and who may not have the financial means to fund private treatment. These programs use government funds from state budgets, Medicaid and federal government to support recovery by offering:
- Safe & confidential medical detox

If you are not supported by private health insurance or you do not have access to funds, you can consider applying for a state-funded rehab program. You have to provide:
