It can be so heartbreaking when you or a loved one has difficulties with alcohol or drug addiction, that you don’t know how to get help. Through proven rehabilitation programs, addiction can be managed for long-term recovery.

In this guide we further explain how an holistic treatment program can enable you or a loved one to start and sustain sober living.

What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

When we mention addiction ‘rehab’, we mean the combination of medical and psychotherapeutic treatments applied to deal with dependencies on alcohol and drugs (including prescription medications). Rehab is most effective when it is tailored to your own needs and incorporates a medically-supervised detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, as well as relapse prevention techniques.

What are the treatment options available in Coachella

Through consolidating treatments, the hidden causes of drug dependence can be addressed and healed. Symptoms of substance misuse should be treated but learning new life skills empowers you to tackle the problems that lead to your dependency on drugs or alcohol.

Private Residential Programs

By staying on the same property that you are undergoing your rehab treatments in, you are said to be in a residential addiction treatment program. One of the main benefits is having access to daily treatment and support.

Moving out of your home environment and entering a treatment center can protect you against the stressors that impact your use of substances. If you reside in a safe and supportive environment you can protect yourself against relapse and have a better chance of finishing your rehab program. Residential rehab programs are considered more effective if your dependency is chronic or severe, or if you struggle with co-occurring illnesses or a dual diagnosis.

An inpatient addiction treatment program will help you in getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require ongoing effort as the first few months of recovery are usually difficult. Upon completion of your residential addiction treatment, you must consider what you want from your new life, as you transition to becoming more independent.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living rehab programs enable you to have more control over your life, with guidance and supportive structures. Sober living programs incorporate:

  1. A house manager checking in on you and your progress
  2. Establishing guidelines for positive behavior in recovery
  3. Receiving support and companionship from other individuals in recovery who share similar life experiences

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient programs are easy to adjust to so that you can continue any family/work commitments and still receive treatments, by attending the rehab facility at your own pace.

Outpatient programs are known for:

  1. Education on alcohol and drug dependence
  2. Therapy and psychological interventions like group and individualized therapy – Outpatient programs should last anywhere from a few months to a

Detox Only Programs

Taking part in a detox program is an important step in rehab as it helps address your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your system. You usually undergo withdrawal symptoms as a natural reaction to the absence of the substance in your system.

This process of detoxification marks the beginning of the recovery journey, following which you will begin to deal with the root causes of your psychological dependence to avoid repeating those same cycles. Once alcohol or drugs have been removed from your system you may develop cravings for it, including symptoms of withdrawal for some time afterwards. Relapse is less of a concern if you are equipped with the vital skills that will help you navigate your path in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you do proceed with private treatment, you can start the process by making a claim via your healthcare provider or pay the cost of treatment with your own funds. The majority of health insurance providers will cover some of the costs of rehab, which includes detox, the rehab program, medical supplies and aftercare programs.

The amount covered is down to your provider and the policy agreement. Before taking part in a rehab program, you should always check how much cover you have. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you have access to.

Clients will be responsible for the cost of rehab if they do not claim from their insurance provider. Some facilities may extend payment plans for individuals who may find the costs unaffordable upfront.

State Funded Programs

If you are caught in the cycle of substance dependence and have limited resources to fund private treatment, you should search for a state-funded rehab program.

With the support provided with funds from state and federal resources as well as Medicaid, these programs may help with treatments such as:

  1. Safe & confidential medical detox
  2. Addiction treatments including extended care

In order to enroll in a state-funded rehabilitation program you need to submit proof that you reside in a low income household or have little to no healthcare cover:

  1. Proof of income
  2. Proof of where you live
  3. Your personal medical records regarding your drug or alcohol misuse
  4. Proof you can live in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Coachella

Sustaining addiction recovery can feel hard once you finish your treatment programme. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support.

Once you leave rehab there may be new triggers that put your coping skills to the test. 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 happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. Because relapse rates can peak as high as 60%, and because life can be stressful, relapse prevention & support is an invaluable tool to support your long-term recovery plans.

When your program is nearing completion, we will discuss the therapies and counseling most helpful for your long-term recovery and an appropriate aftercare provisions will be created to assist you.

After the successful completion of your addiction treatment program you will be eligible for joining an alumni community program so you can stay in contact with staff and others in recovery. This useful network allows you access to our social events, which includes ongoing support and encouragement from other ex-clients in recovery. You may also like to return the favor by showing support towards others.

Support groups (fellowship meetings)

Support groups continue to be a great resource because they integrate social structures into addiction recovery. By joining a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can follow the 12-step model and attend local meetings for life-long support. When you take part in support groups, you will be able to share your experiences and feel empowered by other members in similar walks of life. Many individuals in recovery attend local meetings to support them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the important tools to stay away from substances, allowing them to be accountable for their life.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Addiction impacts on those living in the household to different degrees. The individual with the dependency needs support, but other members of the household also need help. By joining family support groups, families can manage stress more efficiently, and be able to provide better to your loved one recovering from addiction.

Examples of Family and Child Support Groups include:

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