What are the treatment options available in South Gate?

An integrated solution is generally the most effective way to tackle and recover from the underlying causes of drug addiction and alcohol addiction. It is vital to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping methods need to be implemented, in order for you to deal with the problems that lead to the substance dependency.

Private Residential Programs in South Gate

If you reside at the facility where you are receiving addiction treatment, you are part of a residential program. One of the primary benefits is having round-the-clock treatment and support.

If you leave your home and move into a treatment facility, you can free yourself from vulnerabilities to stressors that influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol. Successfully completing your residential rehab program and avoiding relapse is a great deal easier when you remain in a safe and controlled environment.

If you struggle with an intense substance dependency, or if you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential addiction treatment program is strongly recommended. We understand that the early stages of recovery are pivotal and after a residential rehab program, you must stay focused in order to maintain sobriety. When the residential program is finished you will learn how to be more independent and your focus will be on your new life and the things you want to achieve from it.

Sober Living Programs

You will receive support and guidance from a sober living program to help you navigate your future plans better. The programs usually include:

  1. A house manager to check in with you daily
  2. Establish guidelines for your behavior in recovery
  3. Support and new friendships from other individuals who are there for the same reasons as you.

Outpatient Programs

The flexible approach to outpatient treatment programs means that you do not have to stop work or participating in family commitments, as you can come to the treatment center and have weekly treatments at your own pace.

Outpatient programs typically provide:

  1. Education on drug use
  2. Counseling and therapy which includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group sessions – Your personal needs can determine the length of your outpatient program, which may extend from a few months to over year.

Detox Only Programs

The first stage of any treatment program is a detox, which removes any substances from your system and deals with your dependency on it. As your body returns to normal function without substances in your body, you may experience the symptoms of withdrawal.

Withdrawal symbolizes the beginning of the process of rehab, and must be followed up by tackling the root causes of your dependency, to avoid repeating the same damaging pattern of behaviors. Many substances cause withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after they have been eliminated from your body. In rehab therapy you will develop the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can reduce the risk of relapse in the future.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private rehab needs to be self-funded or claimed directly through your insurance. Most insurance companies contribute to at least part of the costs associated with drug and alcohol rehab, including a medically-supervised detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as aftercare support.

The amount of cover you are entitled to claim will be unique based on your provider and policy. Before you take part in a rehab program, you should always check how much cover you claim for. Our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ – can help you determine eligibility for cover.

If you choose not to claim against your policy, the cost of your rehab treatment needs to be covered directly. Some rehab facilities can provide a payment plan to those who are struggling to pay the whole cost of treatment.

State Funded Programs

State-funded addiction treatment programs are designed for people who need to tackle a drug or alcohol addiction but have limited resources to pay privately for a program.

These programs work by using government funds from state budgets, Medicaid and federal government to provide addiction recovery with:

  1. Medically-assisted detox
  2. Addiction Rehabilitation and relapse prevention services.

People with no private healthcare insurance or live in households with low combined income may enroll for a state-funded treatment program. To start the process, you will need to give:

  1. Living arrangements
  2. Any income or earnings
  3. Evidence about your drug or alcohol addiction
  4. Living legally in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in South Gate

Remaining active in your recovery can feel difficult when returning to normal life after completing your rehab programme. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support.

After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. 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. As many as 60% of people in recovery will relapse due to unpredictable life challenges, taking part in aftercare can improve your chance of long-term recovery success. As you draw closer to completing your rehab program, we will support you to establish an aftercare program that includes services that are helpful to your recovery.

One great benefit of finishing rehab is entering an alumni community program, where you can liaise with former clients and staff in a community based project. With this network you will be attending fun events and receive motivation and advice from other members who are in recovery long-term. You may feel empowered to pay the favor forward, by providing your support to other people who may need it.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Support groups encourage lasting recovery because they understand the important role that social connections play in supporting addiction recovery. If you participate in a group that utilizes the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive ongoing support via group meetings.

When you attend nearby support group meetings you will listen to, and learn from, the recovery stories of other members. Many individuals in recovery attend local meetings to assist them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools tools to stay sober, allowing them to be accountable for their actions to themselves and others.
