It is important to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be learnt, in order for you to cope with the issues that lead to the substance dependency.
Private Residential Programs
By residing on the same property that you are obtaining your addiction treatments in, you are part of a residential rehab program. It is very beneficial to have 24-hour support and treatment access. There is enormous value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully focused in the treatment program, because you are no longer sensitive to the triggers and stressors that may have caused you to abuse drugs.
Completing your treatment program and avoiding relapse is considerably easier when you stay in a secure and supportive environment. A residential addiction treatment program offers the best solution when you have a dual diagnosis, a complex substance dependency or co-occurring illnesses.
You can begin the first steps to a sober life by enrolling in an inpatient program, however to get through the challenges of the early stages of addiction recovery, you must work at it constantly. When your inpatient program is complete you will have the skills to be independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards sobriety.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs enable people in recovery build greater control over their lives, with a support structure and some guidance. Sober living programs include:
- Round-the-clock check-ins from a house manager
- Developing guidelines to change your behavior in recovery
- Assisting you to build positive relationships with peers who are having similar experiences to you
Outpatient programs are easy to adjust to as you can continue any work/family commitments and still undergo treatments, by coming to the rehab facility regularly.
Outpatient programs are known for:
- Education about your drug or alcohol misuse
- Talking therapy and counseling through the use of group interventions and one-to-one sessions with a skilled addiction therapist. – Outpatient programs should run from three months to more than a year, and your personal needs will determine the length of treatment.
Detox Only Programs
Most patients will need a medical detox to commence substance rehabilitation, as it deals with physical dependencies on substances by removing it from your body. During the detox phase you will go through withdrawal symptoms as your body starts to function without the substance it was dependent on.
By completing the detox stage you will move ahead in your rehab journey, as you begin addressing the main causes that lead to your addiction, helping you understand how to avoid it in the future. Given that most substances result in withdrawal, you may experience withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a while after your detox is complete. Building on important skills can assist you to limit your risk of relapse as you work on your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private rehab must be paid for yourself or claimed through your health insurance. Many insurance companies will contribute to parts of your rehab treatment, including a drug or alcohol detox, a treatment program, and any aftercare provisions you may require. The type of cover given will differ based on the fine print of your policy as well as your provider’s. We suggest that you identify how much cover you are entitled to before signing up for a rehab program. Check out our Verify Your Insurance page to learn about the cover you qualify for.
If you decide not to claim against your health insurance plan, you must pay for your treatment. Some facilities may extend payment plans for those who find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you are battling substance use disorder but have limited resources to pay privately for it, you should search for a state-funded addiction treatment program.
These programs utilize government funds from state budgets, Medicaid and federal government to assist recovery by offering:
- Medically-supervised alcohol/drug detox
- Rehab treatment and relapse prevention services.
If you do not have private health insurance or you live in a low income household, you should apply for a state-funded treatment program. You can expect to provide:
- Medical information about your addiction issues
- Proof of residence

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
By participating in an aftercare program you get extended rehab support when you go home. Because life doesn’t always work out how we want it to, and 60% of people may relapse after completing rehab, staying active in an aftercare program is essential to support for you when times feel difficult.
As you get near to finishing your rehab program, we will work with you to develop an aftercare program that includes any services most helpful to your recovery. One good benefit of completing rehab is joining an alumni community program, where you can liaise with peers and staff in a community-based project.
You will enjoy access to Alumni events and receive guidance and encouragement from individuals who are also in recovery long-term. You might also want to return the favor by offering support to other individuals in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups remain important to long-term recovery as they recognize the importance of social structures in recovery. With the support of groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will continue the principles of the 12 steps by attending nearby meetings for lifelong support.
During support group meetings, other members begin to share their stories and learn from the experiences of others. Friendship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction causes pain to everyone in a family unit to varying degrees. The individual with the addiction needs help, but other members of the household also need help.
Participating in a family support group can help you to manage the situation better, as well as help you in providing greater support to the individual with the dependency.
Your family members may benefit from support groups like:
