We will explain how a sober future is possible for you or someone you care about if an holistic treatment method is adopted.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we speak about addiction ‘rehabilitation’, we refer to the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments used to tackle dependencies on prescription drugs, recreational and illegal substances. Rehab treatment is most effective when it is tailored to suit your unique lifestyle involving a medical detox, residential and outpatient care, as well as aftercare support.

What are the treatment options available in Carmichael?
Integrated treatment is typically the best manner in which to deal with the primary causes of drug and alcohol dependencies. Learning coping mechanisms to treat the primary causes of your addiction is just as crucial as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
Residential rehab programs allow you to reside on the same property that you are obtaining treatments in. Its main benefit is that you will continuously receive holistic treatment and support day by day.
There is substantial value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully engaged in the rehab program, because you are not sensitive to the stressors and triggers that may cause you to abuse substances. You are less susceptible to relapse if you complete your residential treatment program in a secure center where the environment is supportive. Those who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders or intense dependencies are recommended to consider an inpatient treatment program.
You can begin the initial steps to recovery by taking part in an inpatient program, but to overcome the challenges of the first year of addiction recovery, you need to work at it constantly. Upon completion of your residential program, you have to consider what you’d like from your new life, as you transition to becoming more independent.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs enable those in recovery develop more control over their lives, with support and some guidance. Sober living programs include:
- Round-the-clock check-ins from the house manager
- Creating guidelines to change your behavior in recovery
- Assisting you to develop important relationships with peers who will share similar difficulties to you
Detox Only Programs
Most individuals require a medical detox to commence substance rehabilitation, as it addresses physical dependence on substances by ridding it from your body. Withdrawal symptoms are the body’s response to detoxification, as it gets used to operating without drugs or alcohol.
This is just the start of the rehabilitation journey, and the next steps are to identify and manage the underlining reasons for your addiction, so that those same patterns do not continue. It is common to experience withdrawal and cravings for a while after the substance has been removed from your body. Your odds of relapsing are mitigated as you build on the necessary skills required to cope with your new life.
By taking part in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, by visiting the rehab facility for treatment weekly and continue important work or other commitments.
Outpatient programs usually provide you with:
- Education around substance misuse
- Therapy and counseling including group therapy and one-on-one interventions – The length of any outpatient program is customized to your needs and lasts from three months to over a year.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment can be settled yourself or claimed through your healthcare policy. Most insurance companies should contribute to some of the costs associated with drug and alcohol rehab, including a medically-managed detox, rehab treatment and medical supplies, as well as aftercare support.
The extent of cover given will differ based on the agreement details of your policy as well as your provider’s terms and conditions. We recommend that you determine the amount you can claim against your policy before you enroll in a rehab program. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can learn what cover you can claim for.
If you decide not to claim against your insurance, you will need to pay for your treatment program directly. Some rehab centers may offer payment plans to clients who find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
State-funded addiction treatment programs are recommended to individuals who are ready to overcome a substance or alcohol addiction but have limited money to pay privately for a program. With the help of funds allocated from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, state-funded programs can subsidize your recovery with:
- Medically-managed drug or alcohol detox
- Rehabilitation services and aftercare support
State-funded rehab programs offer relief to people who reside in low income households or private healthcare insurance. In order to qualify you will need to provide details regarding:
- Proof of who you are and where you live
- Proof of earnings
- Details about your addiction from your medical history and details about your drug or alcohol problems
- Proof that you have the legal right to live and remain in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Carmichael
When you leave the rehab center, you may experience some challenges. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals. As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address. In our experience, clients with intense dependencies and those who do not develop the necessary support structure find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
By participating in an aftercare program you get extended rehab support when you go home. By participating in extended support, you can lessen the risk of relapse which impacts as many as 60% of individuals who have recently completed treatment. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.
As you get close to finishing your rehab program, you may be thinking about which services will support you in your long term recovery. We help you to establish an aftercare package that supports you. After the successful completion of your rehab program you will be eligible to join an alumni community program so you can remain close to staff and others in recovery.
You will be invited to attend special events, take part in a number of initiatives, build relationships, and receive advice from other members who are also in recovery. This gives you an opportunity to reciprocate and offer encouragement to other individuals in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Being active in support groups is vital because social structures encourage long-lasting addiction recovery. With the support of groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can continue the principles of the 12 steps by attending near-by meetings for recovery support. At local meetings, you can share and listen to other member’s personal journeys. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to help them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools tools to stay away from substances, and allow them to be accountable for their life.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Each family member is negatively impacted, to a varying degree, by addiction. The individual with the addiction issues needs help, but other family members need support and guidance too. Family support groups teach you and your loved ones important coping tools for your own life and allow you to offer greater support to the person who has the dependency.
Family members will benefit from joining support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
