Identifying and healing the root causes behind your substance or alcohol addiction can be achieved through an integrated treatment model. Utilizing coping strategies to treat the primary causes of your substance misuse is just as crucial as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
A residential rehab program allows you to live at the rehab facility and receive all your treatment within the property. One of the key benefits is having daily treatment and care. By removing yourself from your home environment and residing at the rehab facility you will protect yourself against the triggers that contributed to your substance abuse.
You can complete your rehab program and avoid relapse more easily when you remain in a controlled environment which is safe and supportive. Patients who struggle with dual diagnosis, co-occurring illnesses and severe substance dependencies are recommended to take part in an inpatient treatment program.
You can take the first steps to a sober life by enrolling in a residential rehab program, but to overcome the difficulty of the first year of addiction recovery, you must remain committed to the program. On completion of your inpatient rehab program, you must transition towards greater independence as you build goals for your new sober life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are designed with the required guidance to help those recovering from addiction get what they want from their new life without substance dependence. They support you through:
- Daily support from a house manager
- Creating guidelines to change your behavior in recovery
- Assisting you to build life-changing relationships with peers who are having similar experiences to you
Outpatient rehab programs are typically more flexible because they allow you to have therapy at the treatment center while you continue any work or family commitments.
Outpatient programs typically provide you with:
- Drug abuse education
- Counseling and therapy including individual or group therapy – Your individual needs can determine the duration of your outpatient program, which could extend from a few months to over year.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in rehab and is actioned to break your physical dependency on a substance by removing it from your body. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s normal response to detoxification, as it begins getting used to functioning without drugs or alcohol.
Once you overcome the worst of physical withdrawal you will continue on your recovery journey, working through the underlying causes of psychological dependency in order to end the cycle. You may undergo withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a few weeks after your detox is complete. Rehab teaches you important skills that are designed so that you reduce the risk of relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you opt for private treatment, you can start a claim through your healthcare provider or pay with your own funds. Most health insurance providers will cover at least parts of your rehab treatment, including detox, therapy and counseling, medicines and post-rehab support. The total amount you can claim will be determined by your policy rules and your provider.
Before enrolling in a program, you should always check how much cover you have. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you have access to.
Clients are liable for the cost of treatment if they do not claim from their insurance provider. Some rehab centers may extend payment plans when clients find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you want to trackle your substance or alcohol addiction but cannot pay for private treatment, you may be a candidate for a state-funded rehabilitation program.
These programs operate via Medicaid and federal/state budgets to help with recovery through:
- A medical detox for those with severe dependencies
- Rehab therapy and ongoing support
So that you can participate in a state-funded rehabilitation program you need to provide proof that you live in a low income household or that you do not have health insurance:
- Medical information that supports your addiction issues
- Proof of where you live
- Proof of what you earn
- Certification that you live legally in the US

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. By participating in aftercare support, you can reduce the risk of relapse which hurts as many as 60% of individuals who have recently finished a program. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.
When you approach the finish line of your treatment program, counselors will work with you to identify therapies and services that will facilitate long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to protect you. One such benefit of finishing rehab is the support of an alumni community program, which allows you to liaise with former clients and staff as a community based recovery community.
You will enjoy access to Alumni events and receive support and encouragement from ex-clients who are in recovery long-term. In addition, you may want to take the opportunity to be supportive of others if you decide to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups really are essential to long-term recovery as they focus on the need for social interactions in recovery.
When you join a group that follows the 12-step model, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive recovery support through group meetings. By attending nearby support group sessions you will hear, and learn from, life experiences of other members. Friendship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone in a family is negatively impacted by a household addiction, and some to a greater extent than others. While its true that the individual struggling with addiction certainly needs help and support, other members of the household also need support.
Taking part in a family support group can help you to manage the situation better, as well as empower you to provide greater support to the individual with the dependency.
Examples of Family and Child Support Groups are:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
