Drug and alcohol use disorders are difficult to address when they hurt you or someone you love. Fortunately long term sobriety can be acquired if you adopt proven rehabilitation methods because addiction is a treatable illness.

This page will explain holistic approaches to treatment and how you or your loved one can begin and maintain a sober, drug and alcohol free life.

What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

When we use the term addiction ‘rehab’, we refer to the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments used to resolve dependencies on illegal substances, prescription medications and alcohol.

There is no ‘single right’ approach to treatment because it needs to be unique to your lifestyle and may incorporate medical detox, residential and outpatient programs, and long-term aftercare programs.

By integrating treatments, the root causes of drug dependence can be explored and treated. Whilst treating the symptoms of dependence is important, you also should learn coping strategies to address the issues that lead to your dependency on alcohol or drugs.

Private Residential Programs

Reside at the property where you are receiving counseling, you are taking part in a residential program. One of the main benefits is access to 24/7 treatment and care. Moving out of your home environment and entering a rehab center will cushion you against triggers that negatively impact your substance use.

When you stay in a safe and secure environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and have a better chance of finishing your addiction treatment program. Patients who need treatment for dual diagnosis, co-occurring illnesses or intense dependencies are recommended to enroll for an inpatient rehab program.

You can begin the first steps to recovery by taking part in an inpatient program, however to get through the difficulty of the early stages of addiction recovery, you have to commit to a new life of sobriety. Completing your residential treatment program is the start of your newfound independence and you will focus on setting goals for your drug and alcohol free future.

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient treatment programs provide flexibility because you can carry on attending work or family requirements, while visiting the rehab center for treatments.

Outpatient programs offer addiction recovery through:

  1. Education around substance misuse
  2. Counseling and therapy with the use of group settings or individual sessions – The minimum duration of an outpatient program is three months and may last longer than a year, this will depend on your individual needs.

Detox Only Programs

The need for drug and alcohol detox from your body is the first stage towards rehabilitation, because it eliminates traces of the substance and puts an end to your physical dependence. Symptoms of withdrawal is the body’s response to detoxification, as it gets used to working without substances.

Withdrawal symbolizes the beginning of the process of rehab, and should always be followed up by overcoming the root causes of your addictive behavior, to avoid repeating the same damaging pattern of behaviors. A lot of substances result in ongoing cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have completed the detox phase. Relapse is less of a threat when you are equipped with the coping skills that will help you navigate your path in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

The private treatment costs may be claimed back through your healthcare policy or self-funded. Many health insurance providers offer cover for some rehab, which includes detox, the rehab treatment program, medical supplies and aftercare and support. The total amount you will be able to claim should be checked against your policy rules and your provider.

We strongly suggest that you check the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling at the treatment centre. Our Verify Your Insurance page will help you to determine the amount of cover you are eligible for.

If you decide not to claim from your insurance provider, you will need to fund your treatment. Many treatment facilities extend payment plans to clients who find the cost to be prohibitive.

State Funded Programs

State-funded rehab programs are aimed at individuals who are motivated to tackle a drug or alcohol problem but have limited resources to enroll in a program.

Assistance can be provided with funds allocated from Medicaid and federal/state budgets, these types of programs can subsidize your recovery with:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Mono

Remaining active in addiction recovery can feel a challenge once you return to life outside of rehab. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. If you experienced a severe dependency and have not developed a social structure to return to when you leave rehab, you may find long term recovery more of a challenge. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Mono:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

By participating in an aftercare program you get extended rehab support when you go home. Relapse may occur in up to 60% of individuals, and due to the unpredictability of life post-treatment, having extended support is an integral part of your recovery journey.

Once you approach the end of your rehab program, you will discuss the services most beneficial to you long-term, and a relapse prevention program will be created to help you sustain it. Alumni programs are a useful benefit to completing treatment and give you community support with ex-clients and staff members.

This fantastic network allows you access to our special events, including ongoing support and companionship from other members in recovery. You may also choose to return the favor by showing support towards other members.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

With the help of support group sessions, you will create a great support structure for your long-term sobriety. You can get long-term recovery support if you join groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous and attend any 12-step meetings. By attending local support group sessions, you will listen to and learn from the lived experiences of other members. Companionship, 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

Addiction causes pain for those living in the family unit to some extent. Support is just as necessary for all family members as it is for the person with the dependency.

Family support groups have two important benefits: you can support yourself and the individual overcoming substance dependence.

Families will benefit from joining support groups such as:

  • Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
  • SMART Recovery Family & Friends
  • NAMI Family Support Groups
  • Al-Anon
  • Families Anonymous
  • Alateen
  • Nar-Anon
