Alcohol and drug addictions introduce hurdles when you or someone you care about experiences them. Fortunately long term recovery can be achieved if you adopt proven rehabilitation methods because addiction is a treatable illness.
This Guide will explain holistic approaches to addiction rehabilitation and how you or a loved one can begin and maintain a sober, drug and alcohol free life.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we talk about ‘rehab’ for addiction, it encompasses therapeutic interventions and medical treatments required to address dependencies on substances such as opiates and illegal drugs including heroin. Rehab has the best chance of long term success when it is customized to the unique needs of the client and incorporates medically-managed detoxification, inpatient or outpatient programs, and relapse prevention techniques also known as aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in Hesperia?
Through consolidating treatments, the root causes of drug addiction can be addressed and treated. It is vital to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be considered, in order for you to deal with the triggers that lead to the drug or alcohol dependency.
Private Residential Programs
Staying at a treatment center and undergoing all of your treatments there is known as a residential rehab program. Access to 24-hour support and treatment is one of the biggest benefits. By moving out of your home environment and into a treatment facility, you can protect yourself from any obvious triggers that are partly responsible for you developing a substance dependency.
You can finish your addiction treatment program and avoid relapse more easily when you stay in a secure facility which is safe and supportive. Clients who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring illnesses and severe substance dependencies are strongly advised to take part in an inpatient addiction treatment program. A residential addiction treatment program will help you in getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require constant effort as the first few months of recovery can be hard for many people. Upon completion of your residential addiction treatment, you have to consider what you want from your new life, as you focus on becoming more independent.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs help people in recovery develop further control over their lives, with support and some guidance. These programs feature:
- Sending a house manager to check in on you every day
- Working on the sorts of behaviors that are required in recovery
- Building on supportive and beneficial relations with others in recovery
Outpatient rehab programs are considered to be flexible because they allow you to have treatment at the rehab center and continue important career or family obligations.
Outpatient programs should provide you with:
- Education about substance use disorders
- Therapy and counseling involving group therapy and one-to-one interventions – The length of an outpatient treatment is customized to your needs and lasts from three months to over a year.
Detox Only Programs
The first stage of any rehab program is detoxification, which removes any substances from your body and begins healing your physical dependency on it. As your body stabilizes without substances in your system, you could experience the symptoms of withdrawal. This process of detoxification starts the recovery phase, which continues as you challenge the underlining causes of your dependency in order to avoid repeating these negative patterns in the future.
A number of drugs cause protracted cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through the detox phase. Rehab therapy will help you develop important skills that are designed so that you do not relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you choose to continue with private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or make a claim through your health insurance provider. Many private insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs associated with a rehab program, which could help with a medical detox, rehab program and aftercare to help you in the early phase of recovery. The amount of cover you can claim will be contingent on your provider and policy. We recommend finding out how much cover you have before enrolling in a program.
To find out what you could claim through your insurance provider, visit our Verify Your Insurance page here. If you choose not to claim against your policy, you will need to pay for your treatment. Some rehab facilities can offer payment plans to individuals who are struggling to pay the full amount.
State Funded Programs
If you are battling substance dependence and do not have the funds to pay privately for it, you should search for a state-funded rehab program. By using funds allocated from Medicaid and federal/state budgets, state-funded programs can subsidize your recovery including:
- Medically-assisted drug/alcohol detox
- Rehab treatment and relapse prevention services.
State-funded rehab programs offer relief to individuals with little to no disposable income or private healthcare policies. In order to qualify you will need to provide information regarding:
- Proof of living arrangements
- Proof of income

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Hesperia
Remaining active in your recovery can be challenging when returning to normal life after completing your rehab programme. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center. As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address. 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 can happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
An aftercare program is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. Relapse may happen in up to 60% of cases, and because of the unpredictability of life outside of rehab, having relapse prevention & support is an integral part of your recovery journey. Once you reach the end of your treatment program you will need to think about the counseling and therapies that are most useful to long-term sobriety and an aftercare plan will be developed to help you.
Those who finish their drug or alcohol treatment programs will have access to an alumni community program such as ours, which gives you the chance to engage with peers and staff. You can attend special events, participate in a number of initiatives, build relationships, and receive support from other members who are also in recovery. You may choose to pay the favor forward, by offering your support to other members.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups will always be a vital resource because they integrate social responsibility into addiction recovery. The 12-steps are is continued by support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which have for many decades, been supporting individuals in recovery by providing regular meetings. When you go to support groups, you will have the ability to share your experiences and listen to other members in similar walks of life. Friendship, empowerment and accountability 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
The entire family is affected by addiction in the home, some more than others. Support is essential for all members of a family, not only the person struggling with the addiction. Taking part in family support groups can help you to cope better, and also help you to provide greater support to the person with the dependency. Examples of Family and Child Support Groups include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
