What are the treatment options available in Buena Park?

Through integrating treatments, the primary causes of drug dependence can be addressed and overcome. By learning useful coping strategies you can overcome substance abuse while treating the primary symptoms of addiction.

Private Residential Programs

Remaining at a addiction center and undergoing all of your treatments there is what’s known as a residential rehab program. A primary benefit is that you will have integrated support and treatment every day. Moving out of your home environment and entering a rehab facility can cushion you against the stressors that impact your substance abuse.

If you stay in a secure and supportive environment, you have a better chance of successfully completing your rehab program while protecting yourself against relapse and its associated pitfalls.

A residential program delivers the best outcome when you have a dual diagnosis, a chronic substance dependency or co-occurring conditions. Sobering up is possible if you partake in a residential rehab program, however if you expect to maintain it you will have to rise above the difficulties that come with the first few months of recovery. After you finish your residential rehab program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you start to think about what you want from your new sober life.

Do You Need Help?

Let us help you start your recovery journey today.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are designed with the necessary support to help people in recovery achieve what they need from their new life without substance dependence. They support you through:

  1. Sending a house manager to check in on you regularly
  2. Developing the kinds of behaviors that are expected in recovery
  3. Working on supportive and positive relations with others in recovery

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient rehabilitation programs are typically more flexible because they allow you to have therapy at the treatment facility and continue any career or family obligations.

Outpatient programs help with:

  1. Educational workshops on drug use
  2. Counseling and therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group therapy – Your individual needs can determine the course of your outpatient program, which may extend from a couple of months to over year.

Detox Only Programs

The early stage of a rehab program is detoxification, which removes all traces of substances from your system and addresses your dependency on it. You usually undergo withdrawal symptoms as a normal response to the absence of substances in your body.

Withdrawal marks the beginning of the process of rehab, and must be followed up by overcoming the primary causes of your addiction, so you do not repeat the same damaging pattern of behaviors. Once the substance has been eliminated from your system you may notice some cravings for it, along with symptoms of withdrawal for an extended period of time. In rehab therapy you will master the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can avoid relapse in the future.

Paying for Private Treatment

The private treatment costs may be covered through your health insurance or paid with your own funds. Many insurance providers will allow you to claim at least some of the costs of rehab, including detox, a rehab program, and any on-going support services you may require. The amount you will be able to claim is based on your policy rules and your provider.

Our advice is to identify how much cover you can claim against before you register for a rehab program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page you can find out what cover you are able to claim.

If you do not claim from your health insurance you must pay for your rehab treatment. Many rehab centers extend payment plans to clients who cannot afford the cost upfront.

State Funded Programs

State-funded rehabilitation programs are useful for people who are battling with alcoholism or substance dependencies and who may not be in a situation to afford private treatment.

Using stipends from state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these treatment programs help to remove financial barriers to rehab by providing:

  1. Programs for a safe detox (medically-assisted if required.
  2. Rehab treatments and aftercare support services

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

  1. Proof of low income
  2. Proof of where you live
  3. Your medical records regarding your substance misuse
  4. Proof of legal US residence

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Buena Park

Leaving the comfort of residential rehab and returning home can present challenges for people new to recovery. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. 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. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. Because life doesn’t always happen the way we want it to, and 60% of people may relapse on finishing rehab, participating in an aftercare program is essential support for staying sober long-term. Once you are near completion of your treatment program you should think about the counseling and therapies most useful to long-term abstinence and an aftercare package will be created to support you.

Alumni programs are a useful bonus to completing treatment and provides you community based support with former clients and staff. With this network you will be attending special events and receive support and advice from other people who are in long-term sobriety. You might also like to return the favor by supporting others in recovery.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Support groups encourage long-term recovery because they recognize the key role that social connections play in supporting addiction recovery. If you join a group that follows the 12-step model, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you will receive recovery support via local meetings.

You will become empowered from lived experiences of others and share your own at support group meetings. Companionship, empowerment and taking responsibility 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 negatively impacts those living in the family unit to different degrees. All members of the family unit need support with a household addiction, not just the addicted person.

Taking part in family support groups can help you to cope better, and also empower you in providing greater support to the individual with the dependency. Examples of Family and Child Support Groups include:

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