What are the treatment options available in Tustin?

Integrated rehab is usually the best manner in which to overcome the root issues of drug and alcohol use disorders. Exploring coping strategies to treat the root causes of your substance dependency is just as important as treating the symptoms of addiction.

Private Residential Programs

Residential addiction treatment programs require you to reside on the same property that you are receiving treatments in. Having Access to round-the-clock support and treatment is by far one of the biggest benefits. When you live at a treatment facility you will be free from most of the triggers in your home environment that could encourage your substance abuse.

Finishing your rehab program and avoiding relapse is a great deal easier when you remain in a safe and supportive environment. Residential treatment programs are generally most effective when your drug or alcohol dependency is chronic or severe, or if you experience co-occurring illnesses or have a dual diagnosis. A residential addiction treatment program will assist you in getting sober, but maintaining sobriety requires constant effort as the first few months of recovery can be hard for many people. When your inpatient program is complete you will acquire skills to be more independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are structured with the needed support to help those recovering from addiction get what they need from their new life without substance dependence. They assist you through:

  1. Guidance every day from a house manager
  2. Developing frameworks for good recovery behavior
  3. Nurturing supportive relationships with others in recovery who may be going through similar kinds of issues

Outpatient Programs

By taking part in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, because you can visit the rehab center for treatment weekly and continue family or work commitments.

Outpatient programs typically provide you with:

  1. Education on drug use
  2. Counseling and therapeutic interventions which includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group sessions – Your personal needs will determine the length of your outpatient program, which could extend from a couple of months to a year.

Detox Only Programs

Taking part in a drug or alcohol detoxification program is an important stage in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your system. You usually develop withdrawal symptoms as a normal reaction to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your body.

Withdrawal symbolizes the beginning of the rehabilitation process, and needs to be followed up by dealing with the main reasons for your addiction, to prevent the same damaging pattern of behaviors. It is common to confront withdrawal and cravings for a short duration after the substance has been flushed from your system. Relapse is less of a threat when you are equipped with the life skills that will help you navigate your life in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private treatment costs will need to be paid directly or claimed through your healthcare policy. Many insurance providers will provide cover for parts of your rehab treatment, including detox, rehab programs, and any medicines you may benefit from.

The amount you are eligible for will be set by your provider and your agreement. Before taking part in a rehab program, you should always check how much cover you can make a claim against. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you identify how much cover you will get.

Clients will have to pay for the cost of rehab if they do not claim from their insurance policy. Many treatment centers will consider payment options to clients who cannot afford the full cost upfront.

State Funded Programs

If you are caught in the cycle of substance use disorder but have limited funds to fund private treatment, you can plan for a state-funded rehab program.

These programs make funding available from Medicaid and federal/state budgets to provide addiction recovery through:

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

State-funded rehabilitation programs are open to individuals who have no private health insurance or who live in poorer households. When applying you will need to show:

  1. Proof of residence
  2. Proof of income

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Tustin

Remaining active in addiction recovery can be a challenge once you leave the rehab center. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address.

In our experience, clients with intense dependencies and those who do not develop the necessary support structure find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Tustin:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. Because life doesn’t always go the way we want it to, and 60% of people may relapse when leaving rehab, participating in an aftercare program is an important support for long-term sobriety.

Once you are near the end of your treatment program you should give some thought to the counseling and therapies most useful to long-term sobriety and an aftercare program will be developed to support you. After the successful completion of your rehab program you will become eligible to join an alumni community program so you can stay close to staff and others in recovery.

You will be provided with access to mentorship and guidance from other members in recovery, as well as participate other Alumni events. Additionally, you can take the opportunity to be supportive of others if you decide to.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Through support group meetings you will create a support structure that is important to your long-term sobriety. You will benefit from long-term recovery support if you find local groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous go to weekly 12-step meetings. Attending support group meetings enables you to feel empowered by other individuals and provide insights into your own experiences. Through companionship and committing to the programme, those in recovery will feel able to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them most.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

The whole family unit is affected by a household addiction, and some to a greater extent than others. The individual with the addiction issues needs help, but other family members also need help.

By joining family support groups, families will learn to manage stress more effectively, and be able to provide better to your family member in recovery. Examples of Family and Child Support Groups are:

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