What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

Private Residential Programs
A residential treatment program requires you to live at the rehab center and receive all addiction treatment at the property. Having Access to daily support and treatment is no doubt one of the core benefits.
If you reside at a treatment center you are away from most of the stressors in your home environment that may worsen your substance misuse. You can finish your treatment program and avoid relapse more easily when you stay in a controlled facility which is protective and supportive.
Patients who have dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders or severe substance dependencies are recommended to take part in an inpatient addiction treatment program. You can start the first steps to sobriety by taking part in a residential program, but to get through the difficulty of the early stages of addiction recovery, you need to work at it constantly. Upon completion of your residential addiction treatment, you need to consider what you’d like from your new life, as you focus on becoming more independent.

Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will encourage you with vital skills you need, using guidance and support. You can expect:
- A house manager who will visit you throughout the day
- Supporting you on how to behave in recovery
- Fostering positive friendships with others in recovery who understand your experiences
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in drug or alcohol rehab and is required to eliminate your physical dependence on a substance by removing all traces of it from your body. As your body starts to work without needing the drug it was dependent on, withdrawal symptoms typically occur.
The withdrawal process marks the beginning of the process of rehab, and should always be followed up by overcoming the main causes of your addiction, so you do not repeat the same negative cycle of behaviors. Once alcohol or drugs have been eliminated from your system you may still experience cravings for it, along with some withdrawal symptoms for an extended period of time. You can lessen the odds of relapse by learning coping strategies for long-term abstinence.
Outpatient rehab programs provide greater flexibility as you can attend work commitments and live at home, but you visit the rehab center for any treatments.
Outpatient programs teach you:
- Education around substance abuse
- Therapy and counseling including group therapy and one-to-one interventions – The length of any outpatient treatment is customized to your situation and lasts from three months to more than a year.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private rehab can be paid directly or claimed via your health insurance. In most instances, insurance companies will allow you to claim for the costs of treatment, to some extent, including a medical detox program, rehab program, and relapse prevention programs.
Your provider’s terms and conditions will dictate the amount of cover you can claim for. Our advice is to determine how much cover you can access before signing up for a rehab program. To find out what you could claim through your insurance provider, click on our Verify Your Insurance page.
If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the balance of your treatment programme will need to be covered directly. Some rehab centres offer payment plans to clients so that they can pay for treatment in instalments.
