Drug and alcohol addiction are difficult to address when they affect you or someone close to you. You can treat addiction even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is possible through professional rehab intervention strategies.
In this guide we detail how an integrated rehabilitation program can encourage you or someone you care about to start and sustain sober living.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a broad term that includes the psychotherapeutic and medical treatments that are utilized to help individuals recover from their dependencies on illegal & legal substances. Rehab programs are valuable when they are personalized to your individual needs, and may include residential programs, outpatient programs, medical detoxes and aftercare support programs.

What are the treatment options available in Highland?
Integrated addiction treatment is usually the best manner in which to tackle the primary causes of drug and alcohol use disorders. Symptoms of addiction should be treated but gaining new life skills empowers you to face the issues that caused your drug or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
A residential rehab program allows you to live at the rehab facility and receive all your treatment at the property.
One of the primary benefits is access to 24/7 treatment and support. There is notable value in taking yourself away from the home environment and becoming fully immersed in the treatment program, because you are no longer sensitive to the stressors and triggers that may have caused you to use drugs. You are less susceptible to relapse if you complete your rehab program in a secure center where the environment is supportive.
If you suffer with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency on drugs or alcohol, an inpatient program is ideally suited to meet your rehabilitation needs. An inpatient addiction treatment program will support you in getting sober, but maintaining sobriety requires constant effort as the first year of recovery are usually difficult. Once you have finished your residential program you must become more independent and set goals for your new life.

Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will empower you with the skills you need, using guidance and support. You can anticipate:
- Sending a house manager to check in on you daily
- Prescribing the kinds of behaviors that are expected in recovery
- Developing supportive and meaningful connections with others in recovery
The flexible approach to outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop work or participating in family commitments, as you can attend the rehab facility and undergo weekly treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs are best known for:
- Education around your drug abuse
- Counseling and talking therapies through the use of group sessions and one-to-one sessions with a trained addiction specialist. – Outpatient programs will run from a few months to more than a year, and your personal needs will determine how long yours lasts for.
Detox Only Programs
The process of detoxing a substance from your system is the first phase of rehabilitation, as it rids the body of the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. You will undergo withdrawal symptoms as a natural reaction to the absence of drugs or alcohol in your system.
Upon completion of the detox phase, you will continue ahead in your recovery journey, as you come to terms with the underlying causes that contributed to your dependency, to help you cope and avoid it in the future. Many substances cause withdrawal and cravings for a long time after they have been cleared from your body. Rehab teaches you life-changing skills that are designed so that you protect yourself from relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you have chosen to continue with private rehab, you will need to fund it yourself or start a claim through your healthcare policy. The majority of health insurance providers offer some cover for rehab, which includes medical detox, the rehab treatment program, medications and aftercare programs. The extent of cover given will differ based on the agreement details of your policy as well as your provider’s terms and conditions.
We strongly suggest that you confirm how much will be covered for prior to enrolling for treatment. Our Verify Your Insurance page can help you understand the amount of cover you can claim for. If you prefer not to claim against your insurance policy, you will need to pay for your treatment program with your own funds. Some rehab facilities will provide a payment plan to clients who are unable to pay the whole cost of treatment.
State Funded Programs
If you want to recover from your substance or alcohol addiction but due to limited resources cannot afford private rehab, you can apply for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Via federal and state budget funding, these programs may kickstart your recovery by offering:
- Medically supervised drug or alcohol detox
- Treatment programs and extended support
State-funded treatment programs provide relief to people with little to no disposable income or private healthcare policies. To enroll you will need to provide details regarding:
- Medical information that supports your addiction issues
- Proof of where you live
- Proof of your earnings
- Certification that shows you can live legally in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Highland
Sustaining recovery can be hard once you embark on your new journey outside of rehab. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center. Your coping skills will be put to the test when you leave rehab, as you may experience some challenges that you still need to learn to deal with. 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. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
By participating in an aftercare program you get extended rehab support when you go home. Unfortunately Relapse may happen in up to 60% of people, and due to the natural events of life outside of rehab, having extended support is an important part of your long term recovery.
When you get closer to finishing your treatment program, you must think about which services will support you in your long term recovery. We help you to develop an aftercare program that supports you. One of the benefits of completing rehab is taking part in an alumni community program, where you can liaise with former clients and staff as part of a community. You will have access to mentorship and support from other members in recovery, and attend other Alumni events. We encourage you to consider helping other individuals who are part of your network if you want to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Attending in support groups is important because social structures encourage long-lasting addiction recovery. By taking part in support groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can continue the 12-step model and attend local meetings for life-long support. You will become empowered from other people’s experiences and share your own unique perspectives. Many individuals in recovery attend local meetings to assist them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the important tools to stay sober, and allow them to be accountable for their actions to themselves and others.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Some individuals living in an addicted household are affected more than others. Help is just as necessary for the family members as it is for the person with the dependency.
Taking part in a family support group can help you to manage the situation better, and also encourage you in providing greater support to those struggling with dependency. Families will benefit from joining support groups such as:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
