What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is a holistic term that encompasses both the therapeutic and medical interventions to treat legal, illegal and recreational substance dependencies.

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 key pros is access to continuous treatment and support.
Leaving your home environment and entering a treatment facility can cushion you against the stressors that negatively impact your substance abuse. You will be less likely to relapse when you complete your rehab program in a controlled center where the environment is supportive. If you have co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency, a residential program is best suited to meet your rehabilitation needs. A residential program will help you with getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require constant effort as the first few months of recovery can be hard for many people. After you finish your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you start to think about what you want from your life free from drugs or alcohol.

Outpatient rehab programs are usaully quite flexible by allowing you to have treatment at the rehab facility while you maintain important work or life obligations.
Outpatient programs are best known for:
- Education about substance abuse
- Counseling and therapy by facilitating group settings or individual sessions – The duration of outpatient treatment is three months and may last longer than a year, this depends on your individual requirements.
Detox Only Programs
Most patients will need a medical detox to initiate substance rehabilitation, as it deals with physical dependence on substances by removing it from your system. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s natural response to detox, as it begins getting used to operating without substances. This is only the beginning of the rehabilitation journey, the next stage is to identify and address the root reasons for your addiction, so that the pattern does not happen again.
Once alcohol or drugs have been detoxed from your system you may notice some cravings for it, along with some withdrawal symptoms for a period afterwards. During rehabilitative therapy you will master the coping skills for long-term abstinence, so that you can limit the possibilities of relapse in the future.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you do proceed with private treatment, you can make a claim through your healthcare policy or pay for treatment yourself. In most instances, insurance companies will contribute to the costs of treatment, to some extent, including a drug or alcohol detox regime, rehab program, and post-treatment care. The amount you are able to claim should be checked against your policy rules and your provider. You should find out how much cover you can access prior to registering for a rehab program.
You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you can claim for. If you choose not get cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the treatment centre directly. Some treatment facilities will offer payment plans to individuals who can’t pay the whole amount.
State Funded Programs
If you want to overcome your substance or alcohol problems but cannot pay for private treatment, you may be a candidate for a state-funded rehabilitation program. With the help of state funding and Medicaid, these programs can help your recovery with:
- Medically-supervised drug/alcohol detox
- Addiction Rehabilitation and aftercare services.
If you do not have a private healthcare policy or you live in a low income household, you should consider applying for a state-funded rehab program. You will need to provide:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Universal City
The early stages of your recovery can feel overwhelming when returning to home life after completing your rehab programme. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. Long term recovery is more challenging if you have a severe dependency or if you return to your new life without social support structures in place. Relapse can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Relapse can occur in 60% of people, and due mostly to the unpredictability of life post-treatment, having extended support is an integral part of your journey in recovery. When you approach the end of your treatment program, you will need to consider the therapies and services that will help you with your long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to support you.
After you have completed your rehab treatment program you will be eligible for joining an alumni community program so you can stay close to staff and others in recovery. Via this network you will be able to attend social events and receive encouragement and advice from other members who are in recovery as well. You may decide to pay the favor forward, by providing your support to other active members in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups are an integral function of long-term recovery because social responsibilities enable long-lasting sobriety. The 12-steps are is continued by support groups like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous which have a long history in supporting people in recovery by hosting group meetings.
During support group meetings, individual members will share their stories and learn valuable insights from others. Companionship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction affects everyone in a family to varying degrees. Support is crucial for all family members, not just the person struggling with the addiction. Participating in family support groups can help you to cope better, as well as encourage you in providing greater support to those struggling with dependency.
