What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we use the term addiction ‘rehabilitation’, we refer to the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments applied to deal with dependencies on illegal substances, prescription medications and alcohol. Addiction Rehab is more effective when it is tailored to suit your unique lifestyle involving a medically-supervised detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, as well as aftercare support.

What are the treatment options available in Central Richmond?
Identifying and healing the latent causes behind your substance or alcohol use disorder can be achieved through an integrated treatment program. It is necessary to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping methods need to be considered, in order for you to cope with the issues that lead to the drug or alcohol dependency.
Private Residential Programs
Residential rehab programs allow you to reside on the same property that you are obtaining treatments in. One of the primary benefits is access to round-the-clock treatment and support.
When you reside at a treatment facility you are free from many of the stressors in your home environment that could encourage your substance abuse. By having an environment around you that is supportive, you reduce the chance of relapse and you are far more likely to complete your residential rehab program. Residential programs are generally most effective when your substance dependency is chronic and intense, or if you struggle with co-occurring illnesses or have a dual diagnosis.
Taking part in a residential rehab program is the most effective way to treat addiction, and sustaining it will require continued focus because maintaining recovery is difficult during the first few months. After you finish your residential treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you consider what you want from your new sober life.
Do You Need Help?
We can help you recover.
Sober Living Programs
Sober living rehab programs are designed to enable you to have more stability in your life, with guidance and a support structure. These programs feature:
- Sending a house manager to check in on you every day
- Working on the kinds of behaviors that are acceptable in recovery
- Developing supportive and positive connections with other peers in recovery
Outpatient addiction treatment programs are typically more flexible by allowing you to have therapy at the treatment center while you continue important work or family obligations.
Outpatient programs are known for:
- Education around substance misuse
- Therapy and counseling including group therapy and one-on-one interventions – The duration of an outpatient treatment is unique to your needs and lasts between three months to more than a year.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in drug or alcohol rehab and is done to break your physical dependency on a drug by removing any trace of it from your system. As your body gets used to functioning without substances in your body, you could experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
Once you tackle the most challenging aspects of physical withdrawal you will continue on your rehab journey, working through the root causes of psychological dependency to put a stop to the cycle of drug addiction or alcoholism. It is common to confront withdrawal and cravings for some time after the substance has been flushed from your system. Your risk of relapse are mitigated as you build on the important skills necessary for long-term success.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you opt for private treatment, you can start a claim through your healthcare provider or pay the cost of rehab with your own funds. Many insurance providers will contribute to parts of your rehab treatment, including medical detox, rehab therapy, and any medicines you may benefit from. The total amount you are able to claim can be identified by your policy rules and your provider.
We strongly suggest that you double check on how much will be covered for prior to enrolling in rehab. Our Verify Your Insurance page will help you to determine the amount of cover you are eligible for. If you choose not to claim against your policy, the cost of your rehab treatment needs to be covered directly. Some addiction treatment facilities can provide a payment plan to individuals who are struggling to pay the whole cost of treatment.
State Funded Programs
If you want to overcome your substance or alcohol problems but cannot pay for private rehab, you can enroll for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Through state funding and Medicaid, these programs may kickstart your recovery by offering:
- A medical detox for those with severe dependencies
- Addiction counseling and extended support
State-funded rehabilitation programs are there to assist those on tight budgets or those with no health insurance. For you to apply you need:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Central Richmond
Being active in addiction recovery can feel challenging when you leave a rehab center. You had the benefits of professional support in a controlled environment at the rehab center. 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. If you don’t have aftercare support or guidance in the initial stages of recovery, relapse can occur.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. By participating in extended support, you can lessen the risk of relapse which hurts as many as 60% of individuals who have recently finished treatment. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres. When you approach the end pf your rehab program, you should consider which services will be beneficial for your long term recovery. We can establish an aftercare package that protects you.
Alumni programs are a useful benefit to completing treatment and allows you community support with peers and staff members. This fantastic network allows you access to our special events, which includes ongoing support and companionship from other former clients also in recovery. In addition, you can take the opportunity to support others if you decide to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
With the help of support group sessions you will enable a support structure that is important to your long-term sobriety. The 12-step model is followed by support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which have for many decades, been supporting individuals in recovery by holding regular meetings. Attending support group meetings enables you to learn from other people and provide insights into your own experiences. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to help them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with vital tools to maintain sobriety, allowing them to be accountable for their own journey in recovery.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Each family member is hurt, to a varying degree, by the individual struggling with addiction. Although the person battling with substance misuse certainly needs support and guidance, other members of the household also need assistance. Taking part in family support groups can help you to manage the situation better, and also help you to provide greater support to the person with the dependency. Some Family and Child Support Groups are:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
