What are the treatment options available in Carlsbad?

Integrated rehab treatment is usually the best manner in which to tackle the primary causes of drug and alcohol use disorders. It is necessary to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be considered, in order for you to cope with the issues that lead to the substance dependency.

Private Residential Programs

Residential addiction rehab programs require you to reside at the rehab center and have your treatments on-site. One of the key benefits is access to 24/7 treatment and guidance.

When you leave your home and move into a treatment center, you can free yourself from exposure to triggers that would have influenced your decision to abuse drugs or alcohol. Finishing your treatment program and avoiding relapse is considerably easier when you stay in a secure and supportive environment. Residential addiction treatment programs are recommended for those with intense alcohol or drug dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. We know that the early stages of recovery can be crucial and after a residential treatment program, you must remain focused so that you can maintain long term sobriety. Finishing your residential treatment program is the beginning of your newfound independence and you will focus on goal-setting for your drug and alcohol free future.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs help people in recovery develop further control over their lives, with support and some guidance. These programs include:

  1. Check-ins throughout the day from a house manager
  2. Establishing parameters for positive recovery behavior
  3. Fostering supportive relationships with other people who will be working through the same types of challenges

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient programs are less intensive to adjust to as you can maintain your work/family commitments and still undergo treatments, by attending the rehab facility at your own pace.

Outpatient programs provide you with:

  1. Education on drug abuse
  2. Therapeutic and psychological interventions including group and individualized therapy – Outpatient programs can last between 3-4 months to a year, depending on your requirements.

Detox Only Programs

A detox program is the first step in rehab and is required to eliminate your physical dependency on a drug by removing it from your body. Symptoms of withdrawal typically begin during detox and your body needs to adapt without the substance it was physically dependent on.

This starts the process of the recovery process, following which you will identify and tackle the latent causes of your addiction to avoid a repeat of the same cycle. A number of substances cause ongoing cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have completed a detox programme. Developing the necessary skills can minimize your odds of relapse as you become adapted to your new life.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you want to pursue private options, you can fund treatment yourself or request a claim through your healthcare insurance Most health insurance providers usually cover at least a portion of your rehab program, which includes detox, rehab therapy, medicines and post-rehab support. Your provider’s terms and conditions will determine the amount of cover you can claim for.

We strongly suggest that you confirm the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling in rehab. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you have access to. If you decide not to claim against your insurance policy, you will need to pay for your rehab with your own funds. Some treatment providers may extend payment plans when clients find the costs unaffordable upfront.

State Funded Programs

State-funded rehab programs are designed for individuals who are ready to tackle a drug or alcohol use disorder but have limited funds to enroll in a program. Using funds from a combination of state, federal and Medicaid budgets, state-funded rehab programs remove financial hurdles to treatment by providing:

  1. Medically-assisted alcohol/drug detox
  2. Addiction Rehabilitation and aftercare services.

State-funded treatment programs provide relief to people with little to no disposable income or do not have health insurance. So that you can quality, you will need to provide information regarding:

  1. Proof of who you are and where you live
  2. Proof of finances
  3. Details about your addiction from your medical history and details about your addiction
  4. Evidence that you can stay in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Carlsbad

Maintaining your recovery can feel challenging when you return to home life after completing your rehab programme. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. 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. Guidance and aftercare support is integral in the early stages of recovery to help prevent relapse.

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Carlsbad:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. Relapse may occur in 60% of individuals, and because of the natural events of life post-rehab, having aftercare is an important part of your journey in recovery. As you get near to the end of your rehab program, we will work you to design an aftercare program that includes any services that are helpful to your long-term recovery.

Alumni programs are one bonus to completing treatment and provides you community access to ex-clients and staff members. This fantastic network gives you access to our special events, which also provides ongoing support and companionship from other ex-clients in recovery. In addition, you may want to take the opportunity to offer reciprocal support if you want to.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Support groups are an integral component of long-term recovery because social structures motivate lasting sobriety. If you join a group that utilizes the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive life-long support through regular meetings. At support group meetings, you will share and learn from the journeys of others. Companionship, 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

Addiction hurts everyone in a household to different extents. Support is critical for all family members, not only the individual struggling with the addiction.
