What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

Addiction ‘rehab’ is a holistic term that utilizes both the therapeutic and medical interventions to treat dependencies on both illegal and legal substance addictions. There is no ‘single right’ approach to rehab because it needs to be unique to your requirements and may incorporate medical detox, inpatient and outpatient care, and long-term relapse prevention programs.

What are the treatment options available in Vista?

By consolidating treatments, the primary causes of substance use disorders can be addressed and healed. Although addiction symptoms need to be managed, life skills will also be learnt in order to focus on the primary causes of your addiction issues.

Private Residential Programs

A residential rehab program allows you to live at the treatment center and receive all your treatment within the property. One of the key benefits is access to daily treatment and guidance. Moving out of your home environment and entering a treatment center can protect you against triggers that impact your substance abuse.

You are less susceptible to relapse if you complete your residential treatment program in a secure facility where the environment is supportive. If you suffer with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or an intense dependency, a residential program is ideally suited to meet your rehab needs. Addiction recovery is attainable if you take part in a residential rehab program, however if you expect to maintain sobriety you are going to need to rise above the challenges that come with the first year of recovery. Upon completion of your residential addiction treatment, you need to consider what you want from your new life, as you work towards becoming more independent.

Sober Living Programs

You can learn the skills necessary to live substance-free by participating in a sober living program, which will support you through the transitional period. This will be achieved by:

  1. Sending a house manager to see how you are doing every day
  2. Prescribing the sorts of behaviors that are acceptable in recovery
  3. Developing supportive and beneficial relations with other peers in recovery

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient rehab programs are considered to be flexible because they allow you to have therapy at the rehab facility and continue any career or life obligations.

Outpatient programs teach you:

  1. Education about substance dependence
  2. Therapeutic support and counseling involving group therapy or one-to-one interventions – The length of an outpatient treatment is customized to your circumstances and lasts from three months to more than a year.

Detox Only Programs

Participating in a detox program is an important stage in rehab as it deals with your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your body. You typically experience withdrawal symptoms as a normal response to the absence of substances in your body.

This marks the start of your rehab journey, following which you will begin to deal with the underlining causes of your addictive behavior to avoid repeating the same cycle. You may experience some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for a few weeks after your drug or alcohol detox program has ended. Relapse is less risky if you are equipped with the vital skills necessary to navigate your life in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

The cost of private rehab may be claimed back through your healthcare policy or funded through your own personal means. Most insurance companies contribute to some of the costs associated with rehab, such as a medically-managed detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as post-treatment support. The amount of cover offered by your policy is set by your provider and the details of your policy agreement. It is a good idea to find out about your cover prior to enrolling in a treatment program.

You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you have access to. If you choose not to claim against your insurance policy, you will need to pay for your rehab directly. Some treatment centers may offer payment plans to clients who are struggling to pay the full amount.

State Funded Programs

State-funded rehab programs have been designed to assist individuals without the financial resources to tackle alcohol addiction or substance use disorder. These programs exist thanks to Medicaid as well as federal and state budgets to facilitate recovery through:

  1. A medical detox for those with severe dependencies
  2. Addiction counseling and ongoing care

State-funded rehab programs offer support to individuals who reside in low income households or do not have health insurance. In order to qualify you will need to provide details about:

  1. Proof of living arrangements
  2. Proof of earnings
  3. Details about your addiction from your medical history 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 Vista

Remaining active in addiction recovery can be a challenge once you return to life outside of rehab. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. 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. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Vista:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. Because life doesn’t always work out how we want it to, and 60% of clients may relapse on finishing rehab, participating in an aftercare program is essential support for you when life gets tough. When you approach the finish line of your treatment program, you will be asked about the therapies and services that will help support long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to protect you.

Alumni programs are a great benefit to completing rehab and provides you community based support with ex-clients and staff. This fantastic network provides you with access to our special events, as well as ongoing support and mentorship from other recovering members. You may choose to pay the favor forward, by providing your support to other ex-clients who are in the same boat.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Attending in support groups is vital because fellowship will enable long-lasting addiction recovery. When you join a group that follows the 12-step model, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive life-long support via group meetings.

By attending local support group meetings you will hear, and understand, the lived experiences of other individuals. Many people in recovery attend nearby meetings to help them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools tools to maintain sobriety, allowing them to be accountable for their own journey in recovery.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Some individuals in an addicted household are impacted more than other individuals. It isn’t just the person with the dependency who is hurt, other family members need help too. By taking part in family support groups, you will manage stressful situations more effectively, and be able to provide better to your family member recovering from addiction. Receive help and support for the Family with the below support groups:

  • Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
  • SMART Recovery Family & Friends
  • NAMI Family Support Groups
