What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

What are the treatment options available in Torrance?
Understanding and healing the root causes behind your substance or alcohol use disorder can be achieved through an holistic treatment model. Although treating the causes of addiction is important, you also need to build coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your drug addiction or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
A residential rehab program is when you live at the rehab center and receive all rehab treatment on the property. The key benefit is the ability to have integrated support and treatment 24 hours a day. There is significant value in removing yourself from the home environment and becoming fully engaged in the rehab program, because you are no longer vulnerable to the triggering environments that may cause you to use substances.
You are less susceptible to relapse if you finish your residential treatment program in a controlled facility where the environment is supportive. If you suffer with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency, a residential program is ideally suited to meet your treatment needs.
Getting sober is attainable if you partake in a residential rehab program, but if you wish to maintain it you are going to have to overcome the challenges that are associated with the first few months of recovery. After your residential program, you must consider what you want from your new life, as you transition to becoming more independent.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards sobriety.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the necessary guidance to help those recovering from addiction achieve what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They help you through:
- Daily guidance from the house manager
- Developing guidelines to change your behavior in recovery
- Assisting you to build positive relationships with peers who are having similar difficulties to you
By engaging in an outpatient program you have a lot more flexibility, because you can visit the rehabilitation facility for treatment weekly and continue attending important work or other commitments.
Outpatient programs teach you:
- Education around drug or alcohol use
- Counseling and talking therapies through group interventions and one-to-one sessions with a skilled addiction therapist. – Outpatient programs typically run from a few months to a year, and your personal needs will determine the length of treatment.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in drug or alcohol rehab and is performed to break your physical dependency on a drug by removing it from your body. As your body returns to normal function without substances in your system, you could experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
This initiates the rehab journey, which will continue as you overcome the underlining causes of your dependency in order to avoid repeating these negative patterns in the early stages of recovery. Many drugs cause withdrawal and cravings for a long time after they have been eliminated from your system. Your odds of relapse can be limited as you build on the important skills necessary to cope with your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
The private rehab costs may be claimed back through your health insurance or paid with your own funds. In general, insurance companies will contribute to the costs of treatment, or at least some of the costs, including a drug or alcohol detox regime, rehab therapy, and aftercare programs. The amount of cover provided will depend on the agreement details of your policy as well as your provider’s terms and conditions.
We recommend that you confirm how much you can claim prior to enrolling in rehab. Visit our Verify Your Insurance page to find out about the cover you qualify for.
If you choose not to claim against your health insurance plan, you will need to pay for your treatment. Some treatment providers may extend payment plans to clients who find the costs unaffordable upfront.

Attending support group meetings allows you to listen to other individuals and provide insights into your own experiences. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to support them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with the important tools to stay away from substances, and allow them to take responsibility for their actions to themselves and others.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Some individuals in an addicted household are damaged more than other individuals. It’s not just the person with the dependency who is hurt, the other members of the family need support as well.
