Alcohol and drug disorders introduce challenges when you or someone you care about experiences them. You can treat dependence even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is attainable through professional rehab intervention programs.
This page will explain how integrating different rehabilitation approaches can enable a sober future for you or a loved one.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a holistic treatment program that includes both counseling and medical interventions to treat drug addiction & prescription drug addiction.
Rehab approaches are more successful when they are personalized to your lifestyle needs, and may encompass inpatient programs, outpatient care, medical detoxes and relapse prevention programs.

What are the treatment options available in Placer?
Integrated treatment is typically the most effective manner in which to deal with the root causes of alcohol and drug dependencies. Substance dependence should be treated but learning new life skills empowers you to overcome the issues that started your drug or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
If you live within the facility where you are receiving your treatments, you are taking part in a residential program. One of the biggest benefits is access to daily treatment and addiction specialists. When you live at a treatment facility you will be away from many of the stressors in your home environment that may worsen your substance dependency.
By having an environment around you that is supportive, the possibility of relapse is reduced and you are far more likely to complete your residential treatment programme.
Those who have dual diagnosis, co-occurring illnesses and intense substance dependencies are strongly advised to take part in an inpatient treatment program. Addiction recovery is achievable if you enroll in a residential treatment program, however if you expect to maintain sober living you are going to need to overcome the challenges that are associated with the first few months of recovery. Completing your residential rehab program is the beginning of your new, independent life and you will focus on setting goals for your substance-free future.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs help individuals in recovery develop further control over their lives, with support and some guidance. Sober living programs include:
- A house manager to check in on you daily
- Work on guidelines for positive behaviors in recovery
- Support and new friendships from those who are there for the same reasons as you.
Outpatient programs are easier to adjust to so that you can maintain your work and family commitments and still undergo treatments, by attending the rehab center weekly.
Outpatient programs help with:
- Education on misusing drugs
- Group therapy and individual therapy as drivers for addiction recovery – You must be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may continue treatment for a year if required.
Detox Only Programs
The first phase of a treatment program is a detox, which eliminates any substances from your system and begins healing your physical dependency on it. As your body gets used to functioning without the substance in your body, you may experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
By completing the detox stage you will continue forward in your rehab journey, as you start to address the underlying causes for your addiction, to help you recognise the patterns and avoid it in the future. Many drugs drive withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after they have been eliminated from your system. Building on the necessary skills can reduce your risk of relapse as you focus on your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you opt for private rehab, you can pay for treatment by funding it yourself or request a claim through your insurance. Most insurance companies contribute to at least part of the costs associated with drug and alcohol rehab, including a medically-managed detox, rehab treatment and medication, as well as post-treatment support. The amount you are able to claim should be checked against 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. To find out what you could qualify for, click on our Verify Your Insurance page here.
If you choose not to claim against your policy, the cost of your rehab treatment needs to be covered directly. It may be possible to opt in to a payment plan if the total cost is too much upfront.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehabilitation programs are aimed at individuals who want to tackle a substance or alcohol use disorder but have limited funds to take part in a private rehab treatment program.
Through the use of funds from federal and state sources as well as Medicaid, these programs may help with treatments including:
- An alcohol detox or drug detox that is medically-managed
- Rehab treatment programs which includes relapse prevention programs
State-funded treatment programs are there to support those with little disposable income or those with little to no health cover. To enroll you will need:
- Living arrangements
- The amount you earn
- Evidence about your drug or alcohol misuse
- Living legally in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Placer
When you leave treatment, you may need some time to adjust to your new life. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. Long term recovery is more challenging if you have a severe dependency or if you return to your new life without social support structures in place. Relapse can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. Relapse may happen in 60% of individuals, and due to the natural events of life post-rehab, having aftercare is an integral part of your recovery journey.
Once you are near the end of your treatment program, you must give some thought to the counseling and therapies that are most beneficial to long-term abstinence and an aftercare program will be developed to support you. Alumni programs are a useful bonus to completing rehab and give you community-based support with ex-clients and staff members.
Via this network you will be able to attend social events and receive support and advice from other members who are in active recovery. This gives you an ideal opportunity to reciprocate and help other individuals in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups enable lasting recovery because they recognize the key role that social connections play in maintaining addiction recovery. A couple of the most useful support groups are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, which utilize the 12-steps to help individuals recover through nearby meetings.
During local meetings, you will share and listen to experiences. Companionship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Some people in an addicted household are impacted more than other individuals. All members of a family need guidance with a household addiction, not just the individual struggling with addiction.
Participating in family support groups can help you to manage the situation better, and also empower you in providing greater support to the individual with the dependency.
Family members can benefit from participating in support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
