Because of the challenges that are connected with alcohol and drug dependence, many individuals do not know where to begin. Fortunately long term abstinence can be achieved if you adopt proven rehabilitation strategies because addiction is a treatable illness.
This page will explain integrated approaches to addiction treatment and how you or a loved one can begin and maintain recovery from addiction.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is a broad term that describes the therapeutic and medical treatments that are utilized to help people recover from their dependencies on illegal, recreational and prescription drugs. Rehab that is customized to your individual needs is successful when it includes medically-supervised detox, inpatient programs, outpatient programs and aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in Hollister?
Integrated rehab treatment is usually the best manner in which to tackle the primary causes of drug and alcohol use disorders. It is important to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping methods need to be learnt, in order for you to deal with the triggers that lead to the substance dependency.
Private Residential Programs
When residing on the same property that you are obtaining your addiction treatments in, you are part of a residential rehab program. It is undoubtedly beneficial to have access to round-the-clock support and treatment options. By moving out of your comfort zone and into a treatment center, you can protect yourself from the those obvious triggers that contributed to you developing a drug addiction.
By having an environment around you that is supportive, the possibility of relapse is reduced and you are more likely to complete your addiction treatment program. If you struggle with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency on drugs or alcohol, a residential program is better suited to meet your rehabilitation needs. Sobering up is attainable if you take part in a residential rehab program, however if you expect to maintain it you will have to face up to the difficulties that are associated with the first year of recovery. When you have finished your residential addiction treatment program you will need to become more independent and set goals for your new life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs help people in recovery develop further control over their lives, with a support structure and some guidance. These programs include:
- Sending a house manager to check in on you daily
- Working on the kinds of behaviors that are expected in recovery
- Building on supportive and constructive connections with peers in recovery
Outpatient programs provide more flexibility as you can continue work commitments and live at home, but you attend the rehab facility for addiction treatments.
Outpatient programs usually provide:
- Education about your drug or alcohol use
- Talking therapy and counseling through group sessions and one-to-one sessions with a skilled addiction therapist. – Outpatient programs should run from three months to more than a year, and your personal needs will determine how long yours lasts for.
Detox Only Programs
The early steps of a treatment program is detoxification, which removes any traces of substances from your body and addresses your dependency on it. As your body returns to normal function without the substance in your body, you typically experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
Once detox is complete you will press ahead in your recovery journey, as you address the primary causes that contributed to your dependency, to help you manage and avoid it in the future. Many substances result in withdrawal and cravings for a long time after they have been eliminated from your system. Relapse is less of a threat when you are equipped with the life skills required to navigate your life in recovery.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you opt for private treatment, you can use your health insurance to make a claim or pay for rehab yourself. Many private insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs associated with a rehab program, which includes a medical detox, therapy program and aftercare support.
The amount covered for your treatment will depend on your policy and provider. We suggest that you find out how much cover you can claim for prior to enrolling in a program. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you identify the amount of cover you will get.
If you decide not to claim against your insurance provider, you will need to fund your treatment. Some facilities may provide payment plans when clients find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you are struggling with substance or alcohol addiction and do not have the financial means to fund private treatment, you could be accepted for a state-funded addiction rehabilitation program. By using funds allocated from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these types of programs can subsidize your recovery including:
- Medically-assisted detox programs
- Rehab therapy and extended care
So that you can take part in a state-funded treatment program you will need to give proof that you live in a low income household or that you do not have health insurance:
- Medical information around your addiction issues
- Proof of where you live
- Proof of your earnings
- Proof that you stay in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Hollister
Maintaining your recovery can feel challenging when returning to normal life after completing your rehab programme. 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 recovery is more challenging if you have a severe dependency or if you return to your new life without social support structures in place. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Relapse rates can peak as high as 60%, and because life can be unpredictable, relapse prevention & support is an invaluable service to support your recovery in the long-term. As you approach the end of your treatment program, you will be asked about the therapies and services that will facilitate long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to protect you.
Alumni programs are an extra bonus to completing rehab and provides you community access to ex-clients and staff. This fantastic network allows you access to our Alumni events, as well as ongoing support and companionship from other former clients also in recovery. You might also decide to return the favor by offering support to others.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
With the help of support group sessions you will create a support structure that is great for your long-term sobriety. With the support of groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will continue the 12 steps and attend near-by meetings for life-long support. You will benefit from lived experiences of others and share your own unique experiences. Companionship, empowerment and accountability 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
Some individuals in an addicted household are impacted more than other individuals. The individual with the addiction needs help, but other family members need support and guidance too.
By joining family support groups, you will manage stress more effectively, and be able to support your family member in recovery. Some useful support groups for families and children affected by addiction include:
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
