Because of the struggles that are connected with alcohol and drug disorders, many individuals do not know where to turn. But addiction is a treatable illness and by using proven and professional rehab interventions, recovery from drug and alcohol addiction can be embraced.
This Guide will explain holistic approaches to addiction rehabilitation and how you or a loved one can begin and maintain addiction recovery.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is the process of medical treatment and counseling to address your dependency on substances including recreational drugs, prescription drugs and alcohol. Rehab offers higher chances of long term recovery success when it is customized to the individual needs of the client and includes medically-managed detoxification, residential or outpatient programs, and relapse prevention techniques also known as aftercare.

Private Residential Programs
If you are staying on the same property that you are undergoing your rehab treatments in, you are said to be in a residential addiction treatment program. Access to 24/7 support and addiction treatment is no doubt one of the biggest benefits. By moving out of your home and into a treatment center, you will protect yourself from any potential triggers that contributed to you developing a substance addiction.
You can complete your addiction treatment program and avoid relapse more easily if you stay in a secure environment that is safe and supportive. A residential program provides the best prognosis when you have a dual diagnosis, a chronic substance dependency or co-occurring illnesses.
Recovery from addiction is achievable if you take part in a residential rehab program, but if you wish to maintain sober living you are going to have to face up to the challenges that come with the early stages of recovery. Upon completion of your residential addiction treatment program, you must transition towards further independence as you build goals for your new substance-free life.
Do You Need Help?

Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will encourage you with important skills you need, using compassion and understanding. You can look forward to:
- Daily support from a house manager
- Developing guidelines to manage your behavior in recovery
- Assisting you to develop positive relationships with peers who have similar difficulties to you
The flexibility of outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop work or participating in family commitments, as you can come to the treatment center and undergo weekly treatments in your own time.
Outpatient programs are known for:
- Educational workshops on drug use
- Counseling and therapeutic interventions such as individual or group sessions – Your individual needs often determine the length of your outpatient program, which could extend from three months to over year.
Detox Only Programs
Participating in a detox program is the first step in rehab as it helps address your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your system. As your body gets used to functioning without the substance in your body, you could experience the symptoms of withdrawal. With the detoxification phase drawing to an end, you will press forward in your rehab journey, as you begin addressing the primary causes that contributed to your addiction, to help you understand how to avoid it in the future.
It is common to encounter withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after the substance has been eradicated from your body. In rehab you will identify the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can avoid relapse in the future.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment costs can be paid self-funded or claimed through your health insurance. Many health insurance providers offer some cover for rehab, which includes medical detox, the rehab treatment program, medical supplies and relapse prevention programs.
The amount you will be able to claim should be checked against your policy rules and your provider. We recommend that you determine how much cover you can access before you register for a rehab program. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you understand how much cover you can claim for.
If you choose not to claim against your insurance policy, you have to pay for your rehab out of pocket. In some cases, it may be possible to opt in to a payment plan if you cannot afford to pay the full amount straight away.
State Funded Programs
State-funded treatment programs were designed to support individuals who do not have the financial resources to recover from alcohol or substance addiction. These programs use government funds from state budgets, Medicaid and federal government to provide addiction recovery by offering:
- Medical assessment and detox if required
- Rehab treatment and ongoing support
State-funded rehab programs provide support to individuals with little to no disposable income or do not have health insurance. So that you can quality, you will need to provide details about:
- Proof of residence
- Proof of earnings
- Details about your addiction from your medical history and information about your drug or alcohol problems
- Proof that you have the legal right to live and remain in the US

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Up to 60% of clients in recovery will relapse due to unpredictable life challenges, taking part in aftercare can improve your chance of staying sober.
As you approach completing your treatment program, you must think about which services will benefit your long term recovery. We can develop an aftercare program that supports you. Alumni programs are an added bonus to completing rehab and gives you community support with ex-clients and staff.
You will be invited to attend special events, participate in a number of initiatives, build connections, and receive advice from other ex-clients in recovery. Additionally, you have the opportunity to be supportive of others if you choose to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Staying active in support groups is useful because companionship will encourage long-term addiction recovery. A couple of the oldest and most useful support groups are Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, which make use of the 12-steps to support people in recovery via nearby meetings. When you attend local support group meetings you will listen to, and learn from, life experiences of other members. Companionship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Some people in an addicted household are impacted more than other individuals. All members of the family need guidance with a household addiction, not just the individual struggling with addiction.
