Private Residential Programs near Westlake

If you reside at the property where you are receiving counseling, you are part of a residential program. It is unquestionably beneficial to have 24-hour support and treatment provisions.

If you leave your home and move into a treatment facility, you can free yourself from exposure to stressors that may have influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol. Completing your treatment program and avoiding relapse is much easier if you reside in a protective and controlled environment.

Residential treatment programs are good for patients with strong drug or alcohol dependencies, co-occurring illnesses or dual diagnosis. You can begin the first steps to recovery by taking part in an inpatient rehab program, but to overcome the challenges of the early stages of addiction recovery, you must work at it constantly. After you finish your residential treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you focus on what you want from your new sober life.

  1. Regular check-ins from the house manager
  2. Creating guidelines to manage your behavior in recovery
  3. Guiding you to build positive relationships with peers who will share similar challenges to you

  1. Education on misusing substances
  2. Group therapy and individual sessions as vehicles for long-term recovery – You can expect to be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may continue treatment for longer than a year if necessary.

Detox Only Programs

The need for detoxing a substance from your system is the first phase towards rehabilitation, as it removes the substance and puts an end to your physical dependence. Symptoms of withdrawal is the body’s normal response to detoxification, as it gets used to functioning without drugs or alcohol.

This marks the beginning of the rehab journey, which continues as you overcome the underlining causes of your addictive behavior so that you can avoid repeating these damaging cycles long-term. Detox can result in some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for some time after your detox phase has concluded.

Rehab will help you learn important skills that are designed so that you limit the risk of relapse.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private treatment must be settled yourself or claimed through your health insurance. A large number of health insurance providers usually cover at least some of your rehab program, such as detox, therapy and counseling, medicines that are prescribed and post-rehab support.

Your provider’s terms and conditions will determine how much cover you can claim for. It is recommended that you find out about your cover before enrolling in a rehab program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can find out what cover you can claim for.

Clients are liable for the cost of treatment if they do not claim via their insurance provider. Many treatment providers provide payment plans to clients who may find paying upfront for treatment a challenge.

  1. Medical detoxes
