Private Residential Programs
When you live at the facility where you are receiving counseling, you are taking part in a residential addiction treatment program. Access to 24-hour support and treatment is by far one of the biggest benefits. By being away from your home and staying at the rehab facility you will safeguard yourself from the stressors that keep you trapped in the cycle of drug or alcohol abuse.
You can finish your treatment program and avoid relapse more effectively if you stay in a secure environment that is protective and supportive. Those who struggle with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders or extreme substance dependencies are strongly advised to consider an inpatient rehab program. Recovery from addiction is possible if you enroll in a residential rehab program, but if you expect to maintain it you are going to have to rise above the challenges that come with the early stages of recovery. Finishing your residential treatment program is the beginning of your newfound independence and you need to focus on setting goals for your substance-free future.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs enable people in recovery develop greater control over their lives, with a support structure and some guidance. Sober living programs typically have:
- Sending a house manager to check in on you regularly
- Prescribing the sorts of behaviors that are acceptable in recovery
- Working on supportive and constructive connections with others in recovery
The flexibility of outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop work commitments or family commitments, as you can come to the rehab facility and have weekly treatments in your own time.
Outpatient programs are best known for:
- Education on drug dependence
- Therapeutic and psychological interventions such as group and individual therapy – Outpatient treatment programs may last between 3-4 months to a year, this will depend on your requirements.
Detox Only Programs
With the help of a medically-assisted detox you can eliminate substances from your system in a safe way and put an end to your physical dependence. Symptoms of withdrawal is the body’s response to detoxification, as it starts getting used to functioning without the substance.
Once detox is complete you will continue ahead in your recovery journey, as you address the underlying causes that lead to your addiction, to help you manage and avoid it in the future. Many substances drive symptoms of withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after they have been eliminated from your body. Your chances of relapse are mitigated as you develop the skills necessary for long-term abstinence.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you choose to commit to private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or start a claim via your healthcare policy. Most insurance companies should contribute to at least part of the costs associated with rehab, including a medically-supervised detox, rehab treatment and medical supplies, as well as post-treatment support. The amount of cover you are entitled to claim will differ depending on your provider and policy.
We suggest finding out how much cover you have prior to enrolling in a program. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you have access to. If you prefer not to claim against your insurance, you will be liable to pay for your treatment program with your own funds. Many treatment centers provide payment plans to clients who will struggle to pay the full cost of treatment upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you are trying to overcome a problem with substance or alcohol use disorder and have no financial means to fund private treatment, you might be eligible for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Support can be offered with funds allocated from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these programs can subsidize your recovery with:
- Services for a safe detox (medically-assisted if required.

When you leave, you may encounter new challenges or triggers that test your coping skills in ways you may not have anticipated. If you had a severe dependency or if you leave rehab without the appropriate social support, you will find long term recovery to be more challenging.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Because life doesn’t always work out how we want it to, and 60% of clients may relapse upon leaving treatment, taking part in an aftercare program is needed support for staying sober long-term.
When your treatment is close to finishing, we will discuss the therapies and counseling that is supportive of your long-term recovery and an appropriate aftercare plan will be devised to assist you. One of the many benefits of finishing rehab is the support of an alumni community program, where you will be able to liaise with former clients and staff as a community based recovery community. You will be invited to attend team events, participate in various initiatives, build connections, and receive support from other ex-clients who are also in recovery. We encourage you to consider offering support to other ex-clients in your network if you choose to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups remain essential to long-term recovery as they focus on the need for social interactions in addiction recovery. You will get long-term recovery support if you find local groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous and regularly attend weekly 12-step meetings. When you go to support groups, you will have the ability to share your challenges in recovery and feel empowered by other members’ experiences. Companionship, 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
Some people living in an addicted household are impacted more than other individuals. All members of a family need support with a household addiction, not just the addicted person. By a family support group, families can learn to manage stressful situations more effectively, and be able to provide better to your loved one in recovery. Some helpful support groups for families and children affected by addiction include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
