What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehabilitation’ refers to the process of medical care and psychotherapeutic interventions to address your dependency on substances including illegal drugs, prescription medications and alcohol.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to addiction rehab because it should be tailored to your lifestyle and may include medical detox, inpatient and outpatient care, and extended aftercare programs.

By integrating treatment options, treatment experts can help you to pinpoint and treat the primary causes of your substance dependencies. Identifying coping mechanisms to treat the main causes of your substance misuse is just as crucial as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
A residential treatment program requires you to live at the rehab facility and receive all necessary treatment within the property. Access to 24-hour support and addiction treatment is obviously one of the biggest benefits. By taking yourself away from your home environment and living at the rehab centre you will protect yourself from the triggers that contributed to your drug or alcohol dependence.
By opting to stay in a safe and supportive environment, you have a greater chance of completing your addiction treatment program while reducing the chance of relapse and its potential dangers.
If you have co-occurring illnesses, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency on drugs or alcohol, a residential program is better suited to meet your rehab needs. Taking part in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to a sober life, and maintaining it will require ongoing focus because maintaining recovery is challenging during the first year. Completing your residential treatment program is the start of your new, independent life and you need to focus on setting goals for your substance-free future.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards sobriety.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living rehab programs help you to have more stability in your life, with guidance and supportive structures. These programs comprise of:
- Support every day from a house manager
- Establishing parameters for positive recovery behavior
- Fostering supportive relationships with others who may be working through similar kinds of experiences
Outpatient rehab programs are considered to be flexible by allowing you to have treatment at the rehab center while you continue any work or family obligations.
Outpatient programs teach you:
- Education on drug use
- Counseling and therapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group sessions – Your personal needs will determine the course of your outpatient program, which may extend from a few months to over year.
Detox Only Programs
The early phase of a treatment program is detoxification, which removes any traces of substances from your body and tackles your dependency on it. Symptoms of withdrawal usually begin during the detox phase because your body begins to learn to function without alcohol or substances it was dependent on.
This initiates the rehab phase, which is ongoing as you come to terms with the underlining causes of your addiction so that you can avoid repeating the cycle in the early stages of recovery. It is common to undergo withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after the substance has been flushed from your body. Your odds of relapsing are mitigated as you build on the skills required to cope with your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you make the decision to continue with private treatment, you can contact your healthcare provider to make a claim or pay for treatment yourself. Most insurance providers contribute to some of the costs associated with drug and alcohol rehab, such as a medically-assisted detox, rehab therapy and medical supplies, as well as aftercare support. Your provider, along with policy terms and conditions, will determine the amount of cover you can claim for.
We recommend finding out how much cover you can claim for prior to enrolling in a program. To find out what you could be entitled to, visit our Verify Your Insurance page here.
If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the cost of your treatment needs to be covered directly. Many treatment centers are willing to extend payment plans to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.
State Funded Programs

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Mariposa
Sustaining recovery can feel a challenge once you finish your treatment programme. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. Long term sobriety is more difficult to maintain when you have had a severe dependency and do not have social support when you leave rehab. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. By participating in extended support, you can limit the risk of relapse, which impacts as many as 60% of clients who have recently finished a program. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.
When your treatment is close to completion, we will help identify the therapies and counseling that are supportive of your long-term recovery and appropriate aftercare provisions will be created to assist you. Clients who complete their rehab programs can join an alumni community program like ours, allowing you to engage with peers and staff.
You will gain access to Alumni events and receive guidance and encouragement from other people who are also in recovery long-term. You may feel encouraged to pay the favor forward by offering your support to other individuals in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Participating in support groups is vital because connecting with others enables long-term addiction recovery. Support groups, including AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous), provide ongoing support with the help of the 12 step principles and regular meetings.
You will benefit from lived experiences of others and share your own at support group meetings. Many individuals in recovery attend nearby meetings to assist them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools to stay sober, allowing them to take responsibility for their life.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
The entire family is hurt negatively by a loved one struggling with addiction, and some to a greater extent than others. All members of the family unit need guidance with a household addiction, not just the individual struggling with addiction.
Joining family support groups has two major benefits: you can help yourself and the person overcoming addiction. Some useful support groups for families include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
