What are the treatment options available in Riverside County?

Integrated rehab is typically the most effective manner in which to deal with the root issues of alcohol and drug use disorders. While treating the causes of dependence is necessary, you also should learn coping strategies to address the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol dependence.

Private Residential Programs

A residential treatment program allows you to live at the treatment center and receive all your treatment at the property. It is extremely beneficial to have access to 24/7 care and treatment access.

By displacing yourself from your home environment and residing at the treatment centre you can safeguard yourself from the stressors that contributed to your drug or alcohol dependence. By choosing to stay in a controlled and supportive environement, you have a greater chance of completing your treatment program while avoiding relapse and its associated dangers. If you struggle with a serious substance dependency, or you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential rehab program is advised.

We know that the first year of recovery are usually challenging and after a residential rehab program, you must remain focused to maintain long term recovery. Once you have finished your residential addiction treatment program you must focus on becoming more independent and set life goals and new challenges.

Do You Need Help?

Our addiction advisers are here to help you.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs help individuals in recovery develop further control over their lives, with support and some guidance. These programs typically have:

  1. A house manager to check in with you on a daily basis
  2. Develop boundaries for your behavior in recovery
  3. Support and new friendships from those who are having similar challenges to you.

Outpatient Programs

The flexibility of outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop work commitments or family commitments, as you can come to the treatment facility and have regular treatments in your own time.

Outpatient programs usually offer:

  1. Education around substance use disorders
  2. Therapy and counseling in the form of group therapy or one-to-one interventions – The length of any outpatient treatment is unique to your circumstances and lasts between three months to more than a year.

Detox Only Programs

The first steps of a treatment program is detoxification, which eliminates all traces of substances from your body and begins healing your physical dependency on it. As your body returns to normal function without substances in your system, you typically experience withdrawal symptoms.

This process of detoxification starts the rehab phase, which will continue as you overcome the reasons for your addiction so that you can avoid repeating these negative patterns long-term. You should expect to feel some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for some time after your detox phase has ended. Learning vital skills can assist you to limit your risk of relapse as you adapt to your new life.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you wish to to opt for private rehab, you will need to fund it yourself or make a claim via your healthcare policy. Most insurance companies will contribute to at least part of the costs associated with addiction rehab, such as a medically-supervised detox, rehab therapy and medical supplies, as well as aftercare support. Your provider and their terms will determine the amount of cover you can claim for.

We advise that you confirm how much you can claim prior to enrolling for treatment. Click on our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ – to find out about the cover you qualify for.

Clients will have to pay for the cost of rehab if they do not claim via their insurance policy. A number of treatment facilities offer payment plans to clients so that cost is not a barrier to treatment.

State Funded Programs

State-funded rehab programs were created to assist individuals who do not have the financial means to deal with an alcohol or substance dependence. Via state funding and Medicaid, these programs may help your recovery with:

  1. Medical assessment and detox if required

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Riverside

Leaving the comfort of residential rehab and returning home can be hard for people in the early stages of recovery. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals. 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. Relapse can happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

By participating in an aftercare program you get extended rehab support when you go home. Because life doesn’t always work out how we want it to, and 60% of individuals may relapse on completing rehab, staying active in an aftercare program is an important support for you when times feel difficult.

As you approach the end of your treatment program, counselors will work with you to identify therapies and services that will help you with your long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to support you. After completing your rehabilitation program you will become eligible to join an alumni community program so you can stay close to staff and ex-clients. You will enjoy access to special events and receive support and encouragement from other people who are in recovery long-term. You might also like to return the favor by showing support towards other members.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Support groups encourage active recovery because they understand the key role that social structures play in supporting addiction recovery. To maintain addiction recovery, can get long-term recovery support if you participate in groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous and attend any 12-step meetings. At local meetings, you can share and learn from other people’s journeys in recovery. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to assist them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with vital tools to maintain sobriety, allowing them to be accountable for their life.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Each family member is hurt, to different degrees, by addiction issues. The individual with the addiction issues needs support, but other members of the family need assistance too. Family support groups teach you effective coping strategies for your own life and allow you to offer greater support to the loved one who has the addiction.
