What are the treatment options available in Nevada County?

A consolidated treatment approach is the most successful way to identify & tackle the root causes of drug or alcohol dependencies. Through learning healthy coping strategies you can address the causes of substance abuse while treating the main symptoms of addiction.

Private Residential Programs

When you stay within the property where you are receiving addiction treatment, you are in a residential program. One of the key benefits is access to 24/7 treatment and guidance. By displacing yourself from your home and living at the rehab facility you will safeguard yourself against the stressors that keep you trapped in the cycle of drug or alcohol dependence.

When you stay in a safe and supportive environment you can protect yourself against relapse and increase the odds of finishing your addiction treatment program.

Residential addiction treatment programs are considered most effective if your drug or alcohol dependency is chronic and severe, or if you experience co-occurring disorders or a dual diagnosis. A residential program will assist you with getting sober, but maintaining sobriety requires persistent effort as the first few months of recovery can be challenging. Once the inpatient program is complete you will want to be more independent and your focus will be on what you would like from your new life.

  2. Counseling and therapy by means of group support or one-on-one sessions – The expected duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and may last longer than a year, this will depend on your individual needs.

Detox Only Programs

Most individuals need a medical detox to initiate drug rehab, as it addresses physical dependencies on substances by removing it from your body. Symptoms of withdrawal is the body’s normal response to detoxification, as it begins getting used to functioning without substances.

This marks the beginning of your rehabilitation process, the next stage is to confront and manage the root problems that lead to your addiction, so that the pattern does not repeat. It is common to develop withdrawal and cravings for some time after the substance has been eliminated from your system. You can limit the odds of relapse by developing coping skills for long-term abstinence.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you want to enroll on private rehab, you will need to cover the costs or begin a claim via your healthcare policy. A large percentage of health insurance providers will cover some of the costs of rehab, which includes drug or alcohol detox, the rehab program, medicines you may need and aftercare and support. The amount of cover you can claim will differ depending on your policy and provider.

You should determine the amount you can claim against your policy before you enroll in a rehab program. To find out what you could qualify for, visit our Verify Your Insurance page here.

If you do not claim your policy, you must pay upfront for your rehab treatment. Many treatment providers will consider payment plans to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Nevada County

Maintaining recovery can feel difficult once you return to life outside of rehab. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. When you depart rehab there will be some new challenges that you will have to learn to cope with. 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. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.

It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.

When you get closer to completing your treatment program, you may consider which services will benefit your long-term recovery. We can establish an aftercare program that protects you. Alumni programs benefit from completing treatment and allow you community access to former clients and staff.

You will have access to special events and receive guidance and encouragement from other people who are also in recovery long-term. We encourage you to consider helping other members who are part of your network if you choose to.

A couple of the best and most useful support groups are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, which make use of the 12-steps to support those in recovery via nearby meetings. By attending nearby support group sessions, you will hear and understand other members’ experiences. Friendship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
