What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

When we refer to addiction ‘rehab’, it includes therapeutic interventions and medical treatments required to tackle addictions on substances such as opiates and illegal drugs including meth.

Private Residential Programs in Salinas, CA

Staying at a addiction rehab center and undergoing all of your treatments there is known as a residential rehab program. One of the biggest pros is access to daily treatment and addiction specialists.

If you live at a rehab facility you are away from most of the triggers in your home environment that could influence your substance dependency. You can finish your addiction treatment program and avoid relapse more easily if you remain in a secure environment that is safe and supportive. Residential addiction treatment programs are considered most effective if your dependency is chronic or complex in nature, or if you suffer from co-occurring disorders or a dual diagnosis.

Getting sober is attainable if you enroll in a residential treatment program, however if you want to maintain sober living you are going to need to face up to the difficulties that are associated with the first few months of recovery. When you have completed your residential treatment programe you will need to become more autonomous and set life goals and new challenges.

Do You Need Help?

Our addiction advisers are here to help you.

Sober Living Programs

You will receive support and guidance from a sober living program in order to control your future better. Sober living programs often have:

  1. Support every day from a house manager
  2. Developing parameters for good recovery behavior
  3. Fostering important relationships with others in recovery who are working through similar types of experiences

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient rehabilitation programs are considered to be flexible and allow you to have therapy at the rehab center while you continue any job or family obligations.

Outpatient programs are known for:

  1. Education about substance use disorders
  2. Therapy and counseling in the form of group therapy and one-on-one interventions – The duration of an outpatient program is customized to your needs and lasts from three months to more than a year.

Detox Only Programs

Taking part in a drug or alcohol detox program is a crucial hurdle in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your body. During the detox phase you will experience withdrawal symptoms as your body starts to function independently of the substance it was dependent on.

By completing the detox stage you will continue forward in your rehab journey, as you start to address the root causes that contributed to your dependency, to help you manage and avoid it in the future. A number of drugs result in ongoing cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through the detox phase. Your risk of relapse can be limited as you learn the important skills necessary to cope with your new life.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private treatment needs to be paid with your own funds or claimed in accordance with your healthcare policy. Many health insurance companies will contribute to a portion of the costs associated with a rehab program, which would include a detox, rehab program and aftercare support. Your provider’s terms and conditions will provide details on the amount of cover you can claim for.

We recommend that you check how much will be covered for prior to enrolling in a program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can find out what cover you can claim for.

If you choose not to claim against your insurance provider, you will need to pay for your treatment. Some rehab facilities can provide payment plans to clients who are struggling to pay the whole cost of treatment.

State Funded Programs

If you are struggling with drug or alcohol use disorder and have no financial means to pay for private treatment, you might be qualified for a state-funded rehabilitation program.

Assistance can be provided with funds allocated from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, state-funded programs can subsidize your recovery including:

  1. Medically-assisted drug/alcohol detox
  2. Addiction Rehabilitation and relapse prevention services.

State-funded treatment programs offer relief to individuals with little to no disposable income or do not have health insurance. So that you can quality, you will need to provide details about:

  1. Proof of residence

  4. Proof that you have legal rights to live in the US

When you depart rehab there will be some new challenges that you will have to learn to cope with. If you had a severe dependency or if you leave rehab without the appropriate social support, you will find long term recovery to be more challenging.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. By participating in extended support, you can reduce the risk of relapse which hurts as many as 60% of clients who have recently finished a program. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.

As you draw closer to finishing your treatment program, we will work you to establish an aftercare program that includes a range of services that are vital to your long-term recovery. After you have completed your rehab treatment program you will be eligible to join an alumni community program so you can stay in contact with staff and others in recovery.

You can attend special events, participate in various initiatives, build connections, and receive support from other members in recovery. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other ex-clients who are part of your network if that feels right.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Support groups really are paramount to long-term recovery as they recognize the importance of social interactions in addiction recovery. By joining a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will follow the 12 steps by attending regular meetings for ongoing support.

At support group meetings, you will share and listen to the experiences of others. Friendship, 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

The entire family unit is affected by addiction in the home, some more than others. The individual with the dependency needs help, but other family members need assistance too.
