If you or someone you care about has an alcohol or drug use disorder you may struggle to understand how to address it. By using professional treatment services it is possible to treat dependence just like other illnesses and achieve long term sobriety.
On this page we detail how an holistic treatment approach can enable you or a loved one to start and sustain a life without drugs or alcohol.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is a holistic treatment plan that utilizes both the therapeutic and medical interventions to treat dependencies on both illegal and legal substance addictions. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to rehab because it should be tailored to your requirements and may incorporate medical detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, and long-term relapse prevention programs.

What are the treatment options available in Lincoln?
A consolidated treatment approach is the most successful way to identify & tackle the root causes of substance and alcohol addictions. Although treating the symptoms of dependence is important, you also need to build coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your dependency on substances.
Private Residential Programs
Remaining at a treatment center and obtaining all of your treatments there is what’s known as a residential rehab program. Having Access to 24/7 support and addiction treatment is obviously one of the biggest benefits. When you leave your home and move into a treatment center, you can remove yourself from exposure to triggers that would have influenced your decision to abuse drugs or alcohol.
You can finish your rehab program and avoid relapse more easily when you remain in a controlled facility which is protective and supportive.
A residential program offers the best outcome when you have a dual diagnosis, a severe substance dependency or co-occurring conditions. Taking part in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to get sober, and sustaining it requires continued focus because maintaining recovery is a challenge during the early stages. Once your residential program is complete you will want to be independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are designed with the required guidance to help those recovering from addiction achieve what they need from their new life. They guide you through:
- Sending a house manager to check in on you every day
- Prescribing the sorts of behaviors that are required in recovery
- Working on supportive and meaningful relations with other peers in recovery
The flexible approach to outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop attending your workplace or family commitments, as you can come to the rehab center and undergo weekly treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs assist you with:
- Education about substance abuse
- Counseling and therapy by facilitating group settings or one-to-one sessions – The expected duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and continue for longer than a year, this is depending on your own requirements.
Detox Only Programs
Taking part in a drug or alcohol detoxification program is an important hurdle in rehab as it addresses your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your body. As your body becomes accustomed to not having the substance it was dependent on, withdrawal symptoms typically occur. This process of detoxification starts the recovery journey, which is ongoing as you face the reasons for your addiction so that you can avoid repeating the cycle in the future.
It is common to encounter withdrawal and cravings for a while after the substance has been eliminated from your system. Relapse is less of a concern if you are equipped with the life skills that will help you navigate your new life in recovery.
Paying for Private Treatment
The private treatment costs may be covered through your health insurance or paid with your own funds. In most instances, insurance companies will allow you to claim against the costs of treatment, or at least some of the costs, including a medically assisted detox, treatment program, and aftercare programs. The amount of cover you are entitled to claim will depend on your policy and provider.
We recommend that you check to see the amount of cover you can claim before you take part in a rehab program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can learn what cover you are able to claim.
If you don’t get cover from your insurance provider, you will need to pay the cost of treatment yourself. Some treatment centres allow you to opt in to a payment plan if the total cost is a barrier to you receiving treatment.
State Funded Programs
If you have a substance use disorder and have limited funds to fund private treatment, you should search for a state-funded treatment program. With the help of stipends from a combination of state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these programs will remove hurdles to rehab by providing:
- Medically-managed detoxes
- Rehabilitation services and extended support
State-funded treatment programs are available to people who are unable to get private health insurance or who live in low income households. When applying you will need:
- Medical information that supports your addiction issues
- Evidence of where you live
- Proof of income
- Evidence that shows you can reside in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Lincoln
Remaining active in your recovery can feel overwhelming when returning to normal life after leaving rehab. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. 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. Relapse can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. Unfortunately Relapse can happen in up to 60% of cases, and because of the unpredictability of life outside of rehab, having extended support is an important part of your journey in recovery.
When you approach the completion of your treatment program, you will need to consider the therapies and services that will help support long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to guide you. One good benefit of completing rehab is entering an alumni community program, which entitles you to liaise with former clients and staff as part of a recovery community.
You can come to addiction recovery events, join initiatives and receive advice and motivation from others who are also in recovery as well. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other members who are active in your network if that feels right.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups continue to be a key resource because they integrate companionship into addiction recovery. By joining a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will continue the 12-step model and attend near-by meetings for ongoing support.
During support group meetings, individual members open up and share their stories and learn from the experiences of others. Many people in recovery attend nearby meetings to assist them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with vital tools to stay sober, allowing them to be accountable for their actions to themselves and others.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Each person in a family is damaged, to different degrees, by addiction issues. All members of the family need guidance with a household addiction, not only the addicted person. Family support groups provide you with important coping tools for your own life and help you to offer more support to the person who has the addiction. Family members can benefit from joining support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
