What are the treatment options available in Encinitas?

An integrated approach is generally the best way to address and heal the root causes of drug addiction and alcoholism. While treating the causes of dependence is necessary, you also should learn coping skills to address the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol dependence.

Private Residential Programs

Stay within the property where you are receiving addiction treatment, you are part of a residential addiction treatment program. Its key benefit is the ability to receive holistic treatment and support all through the day.

If you stay at a treatment facility you are safe from most of the stressors in your home environment that may encourage your substance misuse. You can complete your rehab program and avoid relapse more effectively if you remain in a controlled environment which is safe and supportive. Clients who have dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders or intense dependencies are encouraged to consider an inpatient treatment program. Taking part in a residential treatment program is an effective way to a sober life, and maintaining it requires continued focus because addiction recovery is hard during the first year. Once the inpatient program is finished you will learn how to be more independent and your focus will be on your new journey and the things you want to achieve from life.

Sober Living Programs

  1. A house manager to check in with you on a daily basis
  2. Develop boundaries for good behaviors in recovery
  3. Friendship, companionship and support from other individuals who are going through the same process as you.

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient rehab programs are typically more flexible by allowing you to have treatment at the treatment center and maintain important career or life commitments.

Outpatient programs help you with:

  1. Education on drug use
  2. Therapeutic and psychological interventions such as group and individualized therapy – Outpatient treatment programs should last anywhere from a few months to a year, this depends on your needs.

Detox Only Programs

With the help of a medically-assisted detox you can remove drugs and alcohol from your body safely and put an end to your physical dependence. During detox you will develop withdrawal symptoms as your body starts to work independently of the substance it was physically reliant on.

By completing the detox stage you will press ahead in your recovery journey, as you start to address the main causes for your dependency, to help you cope and avoid it in the early stages of recovery and beyond. It is common to develop withdrawal and cravings for some time after the substance has been eradicated from your body. Relapse is less risky when you are equipped with the coping skills that will help you navigate your new life in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

The cost of private treatment may be claimed back through your healthcare policy or self-funded. Many private insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs of a rehab program, which could help with a medical detox, rehab program and aftercare provisions. The amount you can claim will be determined by your policy rules and your provider.

We recommend that you determine how much cover you can access before signing up for a treatment program. Visit our Verify Your Insurance page to find out about the cover you qualify for. If you do not make a claim against your health insurance you must pay the center directly for your rehab treatment. Many rehab providers offer payment options to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.

State Funded Programs

If you are battling substance dependence and do not have the funds to pay privately for it, you may apply for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Thanks to funds allocated from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these sorts of programs can subsidize your recovery with:

  1. A medical detox for those with severe dependencies
  2. Rehab therapy and extended support

State-funded rehab programs offer relief to people who reside in low income households or private healthcare policies. So that you can quality, you will need to provide details about:

  1. Proof of who you are and where you live
  2. Proof of earnings
  3. Your medical records and information about your drug or alcohol problems
  4. Proof that you have the legal right to live and remain in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Encinitas

You may experience some initial difficulties once you leave rehab. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. 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. 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. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Encinitas:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Unfortunately Relapse may occur in 60% of individuals, and due mostly to the natural events of life post-treatment, having aftercare is an integral part of your recovery journey.

Once you are close to completing your rehab program, you will consider the treatment services most beneficial to your needs long-term, and a relapse prevention package will be created to help you sustain it. One good benefit of completing rehab is the ability to join an alumni community program, which allows you to liaise with former clients and staff in a community based project. You can attend special events, participate in a number of initiatives, build connections, and receive support from other ex-clients who are also in recovery. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other members in your network if you want to.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

With the help of support group sessions you can create a support structure that is great for your long-term sobriety. By joining a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will follow the principles of the 12 steps and attend regular meetings for life-long support. At support group meetings, you will share and learn from the experiences of others. By building friendships and committing to the programme, individuals in recovery will feel empowered to take responsibility for themselves and protect those around them.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Each person in a family is damaged, to a varying degree, by addiction issues. Help and support is just as crucial for all family members as it is for the individual with the addiction issues. Family support groups provide you with affective coping strategies for your own life and help you to offer greater support to the loved one who has the addiction.

Some Family and Child Support Groups are:

  • Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
