Drug and alcohol dependence are hard to address when they impact you or someone close to you. Through proven rehabilitation programs, drug and alcohol addiction can be treated for long-term abstinence.

This Guide will explain holistic approaches to addiction treatment and how you or a loved one can begin and maintain recovery from addiction.

What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

When we use the term addiction ‘rehabilitation’, we mean the combination of medical and psychotherapeutic treatments used to tackle dependencies on prescription drugs, recreational and illegal substances. There is no ‘single right’ approach to rehab because it needs to be tailored to your requirements and may include detoxification, residential and outpatient care, and long-term aftercare programs.

What are the treatment options available in Folsom?

A consolidated treatment approach is the most successful way to tackle the root causes of drug or alcohol use disorders. It is important to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping methods need to be implemented, in order for you to cope with the problems that lead to the drug or alcohol dependency.

Private Residential Programs

Residential rehab programs require you to reside at the treatment center and undergo your treatments on-site. The main benefit is being able to receive integrated support and treatment every day.

By moving out of your comfort zone and into a treatment center, you will protect yourself from any obvious triggers that culminated in you developing a drug addiction. When you reside in a safe and supportive environment you can safeguard yourself against relapse and have a better chance of finishing your rehab program. If you suffer with co-occurring illnesses, dual diagnosis or an intense dependency, an inpatient program is ideally suited to meet your rehab needs.

You can start the initial steps to recovery by taking part in a residential program, however to get through the difficulty of the first year of addiction recovery, you need to work at it constantly. Once you have completed your residential treatment programe you will want to be more independent and set new goals and challenges.

Let us help you start your recovery journey today.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living treatment programs are designed to enable you to have more control over your life, through guidance and supportive structures. The programs include:

  1. A house manager who visits you daily
  2. Guiding you on the best way to behave in recovery
  3. Encouraging important friendships with others in recovery who understand your experiences

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient treatment programs provide more flexibility as you can continue work commitments and live at home, but you attend the rehab facility for your treatments.

Outpatient programs teach you:

  1. Education about substance abuse
  2. Therapy and counseling involving group therapy or one-to-one interventions – The duration of any outpatient program is customized to your circumstances and lasts between three months to more than a year.

Detox Only Programs

Most individuals need a medical detox to begin substance rehabilitation, because it deals with physical dependence on substances by cleansing it from your system. As your body returns to normal function without the substance in your system, you typically experience withdrawal symptoms.

Once you tackle the difficult phase of physical withdrawal you will continue on your recovery journey, working through the root causes of your dependency in order to put a stop to the cycle of drug addiction or alcoholism. Many substances cause symptoms of withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after they have been eliminated from your body. Relapse is less of a problem when you are equipped with the vital skills that will help you navigate your life in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you want to pursue private rehab, you can pay with your own funds or claim directly through your healthcare policy. Most insurance providers can contribute to at least part of the costs associated with addiction rehab, such as a medically-managed detox, rehab treatment and medication, as well as aftercare support.

The amount you will be able to claim can be identified by your policy rules and your provider. We strongly suggest that you check the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling for treatment. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you can claim for.

If you choose not get cover from your insurance provider, you will need to pay directly for your treatment. Many treatment centers are willing to extend payment options to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.

State Funded Programs

If you are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction and have no financial means to fund private treatment, you could be qualified for a state-funded rehabilitation program. By using funds provided from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these programs can subsidize your recovery including:

  1. An alcohol detox or drug detox that is medically-managed
  2. Addiction treatment programs including extended care

State-funded rehabilitation programs are open to those who have no private health insurance or who live in poorer areas. During the application process you will be asked for:

  1. Proof of living arrangements
  2. Proof of earnings
  3. Details about your addiction from your medical history and details about your drug or alcohol problems
  4. Proof that you have the legal right to live and remain in the US

More details about the application process can be found on here.

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Folsom

Sustaining addiction recovery can feel hard once you return to life outside of rehab. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. Clients who had severe dependencies find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab if they do not have a social support structure. 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 it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen in life, up to 60% of clients in recovery may relapse, this makes extended aftercare an important component of addiction recovery. When your program is close to completion, we will discuss the therapies and counseling most useful to your long-term recovery and any appropriate aftercare provisions will be created to assist you.

One good benefit of finishing rehab is the ability to join an alumni community program, which allows you to liaise with peers and staff as part of a recovery community. This fantastic network provides you with access to our social events, which also provides ongoing support and mentorship from other former clients also in recovery. Plus, you have the opportunity to be supportive of others if you decide to.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

With the help of support group participation you will enable a support structure that is conducive to your long-term sobriety. If you join a group that follows the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive ongoing support via regular meetings.

You will learn from other people’s experiences and share your own challenges in recovery. Friendship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Addiction hurts everyone in a family to different extents. Support is critical for all family members, not just the person struggling with the addiction. Family support groups teach you vital coping strategies for your own life and help you to offer more support to the person who has the issues with substance dependence.

Examples of Family and Child Support Groups are:

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