If you or a loved one has an alcohol or drug use disorder you may struggle to understand how to address it. You can treat addiction even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is likely through professional rehab intervention strategies.

On this page we detail how an integrated rehabilitation program can encourage you or a loved one to begin and sustain addiction recovery.

What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

The term substance ‘rehab’ is applicable to all of the medical and therapeutic treatments used to help people who have dependencies on illegal substances including cocaine, or prescribed medications such as opiates. There is no ‘single right’ approach to rehab because it should be unique to your lifestyle and may incorporate detox, inpatient and outpatient care, and extended relapse prevention programs.

What are the treatment options available in Rialto?

A consolidated treatment approach provides a successful way to identify & tackle the root causes of drug or alcohol addictions. Exploring coping strategies to treat the primary causes of your substance dependency is just as important as treating the symptoms of addiction.

Private Residential Programs

A residential treatment program is when you live at the treatment facility and receive all necessary treatment at the property. One of the primary benefits is having access to 24-hour treatment and support. When you leave your home and move into a rehab center, you can free yourself from exposure to triggers that may have influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol.

Successfully completing your residential treatment program and avoiding relapse is considerably easier if you are in a protective and supportive environment. Clients who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders or extreme dependencies are recommended to consider an inpatient addiction treatment program. A residential program will help you in getting sober, but it’s important to note that maintaining sobriety requires persistent effort as the first few months of recovery are usually difficult. Once the residential program is finished you will acquire skills to be more independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are designed with the needed guidance to help recovering individuals achieve what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They assist you through:

  1. A house manager checking in on you and your progress
  2. Working on guidelines for positive behavior in recovery
  3. Getting guidance and companionship from others in recovery who will have similar life experiences

Outpatient Programs

By engaging in an outpatient program you have a lot more flexibility, as you will visit the rehabilitation facility for treatment weekly and maintain work or family commitments.

Outpatient programs provide you with:

  1. Education around substance abuse
  2. Counseling and therapy by facilitating group settings or individual sessions – The duration of outpatient treatment is three months and continue for longer than a year, this is depending on your own needs.

Detox Only Programs

A detox program is the first step in rehab and is performed to break your physical dependency on a drug by removing all traces of it from your system. As your body stabilizes without the substance in your body, you could experience withdrawal symptoms.

This marks the start of the recovery process, following which you will start to deal with the root causes of your psychological dependence to avoid a repeat of those same cycles. It is possible to still undergo withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a period of time after your detox program is complete. Building on vital skills can minimize your risk of relapse as you work on your new life.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you choose to have private treatment, you can claim from your health insurance or pay the costs directly. Most health insurance providers will cover some of the costs of rehab, which includes medical detox, the rehab treatment program, medicines you may need and aftercare programs.

The amount of cover you can claim will differ depending on your healthcare provider and policy type We recommend that you check how much will be covered for prior to enrolling in rehab. Visit our Verify Your Insurance page to learn more about the cover you qualify for.

If you decide not to claim against your insurance policy, you will be liable to pay for your treatment with your own funds. Many treatment facilities offer payment plans to clients who cannot afford the cost upfront.

State Funded Programs

State-funded addiction treatment programs are aimed at individuals who are motivated to address a drug or alcohol dependency but have limited resources to pay privately for a treatment program. Through state funding and Medicaid, these programs may kickstart your recovery with:

  1. Medically-assisted detox
  2. Rehab treatment and relapse prevention services.

People without private health cover or live in households with low combined income may qualify for a state-funded treatment program. So that you can begin the process, you will need to give:

  1. Proof of living arrangements
  2. Proof of income
  3. Your medical records and details about your substance issues

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Rialto

Remaining active in addiction recovery can be a challenge once you return to life outside of rehab. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals. 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. If you experienced a severe dependency and have not developed a social structure to return to when you leave rehab, you may find long term recovery more of a challenge. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Rialto:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. By taking part in aftercare support, you can lessen the risk of relapse which hurts as many as 60% of people who have recently completed a program. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres. Once you are close to completing your rehab program, you will discuss the therapies and counseling services most beneficial to your long-term sobriety, and a relapse prevention program will be designed to help you sustain it.

Those who complete their treatment programs will gain access to an alumni community program like ours, which gives you the opportunity to interact with peers and staff. Through this network you will have access to fun events and receive support and advice from other former clients who are in recovery long-term. Plus, you may want to take the opportunity to offer reciprocal support if you choose to.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Through support group sessions you will create a support structure that is important to your long-term sobriety. When you join a group that utilizes the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you will receive recovery support via regular meetings.

At local meetings, you can share and listen to other member’s recovery stories from other members. Friendship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
