A consolidated treatment approach provides a successful way to identify & tackle the root causes of drug or alcohol addictions. Even though treating the causes of dependence is vital, you also need to learn coping strategies to address the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
Residential rehabilitation programs require you to remain on the same property that you are receiving treatments in. The main benefit is the ability to have holistic support and treatment throughout the day. By taking yourself away from your home and staying at the treatment facility you can protect yourself against the stressors that contributed to your drug or alcohol dependence.
Successfully completing your residential treatment program and avoiding relapse is a great deal easier when you stay in a secure and controlled environment. Residential programs are considered more effective if your dependency is chronic and complex in nature, or if you experience co-occurring disorders or a dual diagnosis.
You can take the first steps to a sober life by enrolling in an inpatient rehab program, however to overcome the challenges of the first year of addiction recovery, you need to work at it constantly. Upon completion of your residential treatment program, you will transition towards greater independence as you consider your goals for your new sober life.
Do You Need Help?
Let us help you start your recovery journey today.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the needed support to help those recovering from addiction get what they want from their new life without substance dependence. They assist you through:
- A house manager to check in with you on a daily basis
- Establish guidelines for your behavior in recovery
- Support and new friendships from others who are there for the same reasons as you.
By taking part in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, as you will visit the rehabilitation center for treatment weekly and continue attending work or family commitments.
Outpatient programs typically provide:
- Education on substance abuse
- Therapeutic and psychological interventions that include group and individual therapy – Outpatient treatment programs should last anywhere from 3-4 months to over a year, this will depend on your requirements.
Detox Only Programs
The initial stage of a treatment program is a detox, which eliminates any substances from your system and tackles your dependency on it. Withdrawal symptoms typically start during detox because your body begins to stabilize without substances it was physically dependent on.
Once detox is complete you will move forward in your recovery journey, as you begin addressing the primary causes for your addiction, to help you manage and avoid it in the future. Many drugs cause symptoms of withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after they have been cleared from your body. In rehab therapy you will learn the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can avoid relapse in the future.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you wish to continue with private rehab, you will need to pay for treatment yourself or begin a claim via your health insurance provider. Most insurance providers should contribute to at least part of the costs associated with rehab, such as a medically-managed detox, rehab therapy and medical supplies, as well as post-treatment support.
The amount you can claim will depend on your provider and your policy details. It is a good idea to find out about your cover prior to enrolling in a treatment program. Check out our Verify Your Insurance page to learn more about the cover you qualify for.
If you do not make a claim from your health insurance you must pay upfront for your rehab treatment. Some treatment providers may offer payment plans for individuals who may find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you want to recover from your substance or alcohol addiction but have limited resources to pay for private treatment, you should consider a state-funded rehabilitation program. Using stipends from state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these programs can remove hurdles to treatment by providing:
- Medical assessment and detox if required
- Addiction counseling and ongoing care
State-funded rehabilitation programs are vital to individuals who have no private health insurance or who reside in low income areas. When applying you will need to show:
- Supporting Evidence that you are a resident of the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Valley High North Laguna
When you leave the rehab center, you may need some time to adjust to your new life. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. Long term sobriety is more difficult to maintain when you have had a severe dependency and do not have social support when you leave rehab. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. Because life doesn’t always happen the way we want it to, and 60% of individuals may relapse on finishing rehab, staying active in an aftercare program is an important support for you when life gets tough.
Once you approach the end of your rehab program, you will consider the therapies and counseling services most beneficial to your long-term sobriety, and an aftercare program will be implemented to help you sustain it. Individuals who finish their rehab programs will have access to an alumni community program like ours, which provides you the chance to engage with staff and peers.
You will be invited to attend team events, take part in various initiatives, build connections, and receive advice from other ex-clients who are also in recovery. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other peers within your network if you feel able to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups enable lasting recovery because they understand the important role that social connections play in maintaining addiction recovery.By taking part in support groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will continue the principles of the 12 steps and attend regular meetings for life-long support. During local meetings, you will share and learn from experiences. Through companionship and staying committed to the 12-steps, those in recovery can feel encouraged to take responsibility for their actions and protect those that love them.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
The whole family is negatively impacted by addiction in the home, and some to a greater extent than others. While its true that the person struggling with dependence certainly needs all the help they can get, the other family members also need assistance. Participating in family support groups can help you to manage the situation better, and also empower you in providing greater support to those struggling with addiction.
Some helpful support groups for families include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
