What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is the process of medical treatment and psychotherapeutic interventions to tackle your dependency on drugs like illegal drugs, prescription medications and alcohol. Rehab treatments are successful when they are personalized to your specific needs, and may encompass residential programs, outpatient care, medical detoxes and relapse prevention programs.

Private Residential Programs in West Hollywood
Remaining at a treatment center and having all of your treatments there is what’s known as a residential rehab program. One of the key benefits is access to daily treatment and support. By being away from your home environment and residing at the rehab facility you will safeguard yourself against the triggers that lead to your substance abuse.
If you stay in a safe environment that is designed to be supportive, you have a greater chance of successfully completing your addiction treatment program while avoiding relapse and its associated dangers.
Those who have dual diagnosis, co-occurring illnesses or extreme substance dependencies are encouraged to consider an inpatient addiction treatment program. A residential addiction treatment program will assist you in getting sober, however maintaining sobriety will require persistent effort as the first year of recovery can be hard for many people.
When your residential program is finished you will acquire skills to be more independent and your focus will be on what you would like from your new life.

Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will encourage you with the skills you need, using guidance and support. You can expect:
- A house manager checking in on you daily
- Working on boundaries for acceptable behavior in recovery
- Receiving guidance and companionship from others who will have similar difficulties
By enrolling in an outpatient program you have greater flexibility, by visiting the rehab facility for treatment weekly and continue important work or other commitments.
Outpatient programs help you with:
- Drug abuse education
- Counseling and therapy which includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group sessions – Your personal needs often determine the duration of your outpatient program, which could extend from a couple of months to over year.
Detox Only Programs
Taking part in a drug or alcohol detoxification program is the first stage in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your system. Withdrawal symptoms usually start during detox because your body begins to stabilize without the substance it was physically dependent on.
With the detoxification phase drawing to an end, you will move forward in your recovery journey, as you learn and address the main causes that contributed to your dependency, helping you manage and avoid it long-term. Many substances result in temporary cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through a detox programme. Developing the necessary skills can minimize your chances of relapse as you adapt to your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you want to pursue private options, you can self-fund or claim directly through your healthcare policy. A large number of health insurance providers typically cover at least parts of your rehab treatment, such as detox, rehabilitation, medicines and aftercare support. The amount you are eligible for will be determined by your provider and your policy agreement.
You should find out how much cover you can access before you register for a treatment program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can find out what cover you are able to claim. Clients will have to pay for the cost of treatment if they do not claim from their insurance provider. Some rehab centres provide payment plans to clients so that the cost can be spread out.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in West Hollywood
The early stages of recovery can be hard once you complete your treatment program. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. Your coping skills will be put to the test when you leave rehab, as you may experience some challenges that you still need to learn to deal with. Long term recovery is more challenging if you have a severe dependency or if you return to your new life without social support structures in place. Relapse can happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Because it’s hard to predict what could happen in life day-to-day, up to 60% of clients in recovery may relapse, making ongoing aftercare an essential feature of long-term recovery.
When you approach the finish line of your rehab program, counselors will work with you to identify therapies and services that will help support long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to support you. One of the many benefits of completing rehab is the ability to join an alumni community program, which entitles you to liaise with peers and staff as a community based recovery community.
You will enjoy access to mentorship and guidance from other individuals in recovery, as well as participate other events. You may decide to pay the favor forward, by providing your support to other individuals in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups are important to long-term sobriety as they recognize the need for social connections in recovery. With the support of groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can follow the 12-step model and attend local meetings for ongoing support. When you take part in support groups, you will have the ability to share your experiences and feel empowered by other members’ experiences. Many people in recovery attend nearby meetings to help them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the important tools to stay away from substances, and allow them to be accountable for their own journey in recovery.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
The whole family is impacted by a household addiction and some to a greater extent than others. Help is just as vital for all family members as it is for the individual with addiction issues. Joining family support groups has two major benefits: you can help yourself and the individual overcome substance dependence. Your family will benefit from support groups including:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
