What are the treatment options available in Sacramento?

By integrating treatments, the hidden causes of drug addiction can be explored and overcome. Through learning useful coping mechanisms you can overcome substance abuse while addressing the main symptoms of the disorder.

Private Residential Programs

Residential rehabilitation programs allow you to remain on the same property that you are undergoing treatments in. Access to daily support and addiction treatment is obviously one of the key benefits. By being away from your home environment and living at the treatment centre you will safeguard yourself against the triggers that lead to your substance abuse.

You can finish your rehab program and avoid relapse more effectively when you stay in a secure facility that is safe and supportive. If you struggle with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency on drugs or alcohol, an inpatient program is best suited to meet your recovery needs. Enrolling in a residential rehab program is an effective way to treat addiction, and maintaining it demands persistent focus because maintaining recovery is hard during the early stages. Once your residential program is complete you will learn how to be more independent and your focus will be on what you would like from your new life.

  2. Counseling and talking therapies through the use of group sessions and one-to-one sessions with a trained addiction counselor. – Outpatient programs will run from a few months to over a year, and your individual needs will determine how long yours lasts for.

Detox Only Programs

Taking part in a detox program is an important hurdle in rehab as it helps address your physical dependency by removing substances from your system. Withdrawal symptoms typically begin during detox because your body will need to adapt without substances it was physically dependent on.

This process of detoxification marks the beginning of your rehab process, following which you will start to tackle the latent causes of your addictive behavior to avoid a repeat of the same cycle. Once the substance has been eliminated from your system you may notice some cravings for it, including some withdrawal symptoms for for a few weeks. Your odds of relapse are limited as you develop the necessary skills necessary for long-term abstinence.

Paying for Private Treatment

You should determine how much cover you can access before you register for a treatment program. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page – https://www.unitedrecoveryca.com/verify-your-insurance/ for more details on the cover you can claim for.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Sacramento

Maintaining your recovery can feel overwhelming when you return to home life after leaving rehab. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated.

Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.
