If you or a loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol dependence, it may seem like everything seems so hopeless and you’re not sure where to start. You can treat dependence even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is possible through professional rehab intervention strategies.
Our Guide will detail how integrating different rehabilitation approaches can assist with a sober future for yourself or a loved one.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a broad term that describes the psychotherapeutic and medical treatments that are utilized to help individuals heal their dependencies on prescription drugs or illegal drugs including heroin. Rehab is best when it is tailored to your own needs and incorporates a medically-managed detox, residential and outpatient programs, as well as aftercare support.

What are the treatment options available in Stockton?
Understanding and healing the primary causes behind your drug or alcohol use disorder can be achieved through an integrated treatment model. It is important to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be implemented, in order for you to cope with the problems that lead to the drug or alcohol dependency.
Private Residential Programs
Residential addiction rehab programs require you to stay at the rehab center and take part in your treatments on-site. One of the biggest benefits is access to daily treatment and support.
When you live at a rehab center you are free from most of the stressors in your home environment that may worsen your substance dependency. You are far less susceptible to relapse when you finish your rehab program in a secure center where the environment is supportive.
If you have a severe substance dependency, or you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring illness, a residential rehab program is advised. A residential addiction treatment program will assist you with getting sober, but note that maintaining sobriety requires constant effort as the early stages of recovery are usually hard for many people. Once your residential program is complete you will have the skills to be more independent and your focus will be on your new journey and the things you want to achieve from life.
Do You Need Help?
Let us help you start your recovery journey today.
Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will provide you with vital skills you need, using compassion and understanding. You can expect:
- A house manager who visits you throughout the day
- Supporting you on how to behave in recovery
- Encouraging important relationships with others in recovery who recognize your challenges and your experiences
Outpatient programs provide more flexibility as you can attend work commitments and live at home, but you visit the rehab center for any treatments.
Outpatient programs provide:
- Education about substance misuse
- Counseling services and therapy with the use of group support or one-to-one sessions – The minimum duration of an outpatient program is three months and it could be extended to longer than a year, this depends on your individual requirements.
Detox Only Programs
Participating in a detoxification program is an important hurdle in rehab as it deals with your physical dependency by removing substances from your body. During detox you will experience withdrawal symptoms as the system begins to work without the substance it was physically reliant on.
This detox phase marks the beginning of the rehabilitation journey, the next stage is to confront and manage the underlining problems that lead to your addiction, so that the pattern does not happen again. Many substances result in withdrawal and cravings for some time after they have been removed from your system. Learning vital skills can limit your odds of relapse as you focus on your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment needs to be self-funded or claimed directly through your insurance. Many insurance companies will provide cover for some of the costs of treatment, including detox, a treatment program, and any medications you may require. The amount of cover you can claim will be unique based on your provider and policy.
We recommend finding out how much cover you have before enrolling in a program. Check out our Verify Your Insurance page to find out about the cover you qualify for. If you opt out of cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the cost of treatment yourself. A number of treatment centres provide payment plans to clients so that they can pay for treatment in instalments.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehab programs are designed for people who have alcohol or substance dependencies and who may not be in a situation to afford private treatment. With the aid of stipends from state, federal and Medicaid budgets, state-funded programs help to remove financial hurdles to treatment by offering:
- Medically-assisted drug or alcohol detox
- Treatment programs and extended support
If you are not covered by private health insurance or you live in a low income household, you may apply for a state-funded treatment program. You have to provide:
- Proof of living arrangements
- Proof of your financial situation
- Your medical history and details around your substance misuse
- Proof that you have the legal right to live in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Stockton
Leaving a rehab center and returning home can be hard for people in the early stages of recovery. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had 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. Long term sobriety is more difficult to maintain when you have had a severe dependency and do not have social support when you leave rehab. Relapse is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. Because life doesn’t always happen the way we want it to, and 60% of clients may relapse on leaving treatment, taking part in an aftercare program is needed support for you when times feel difficult. When you get close to finishing your treatment program, you can consider which services will support you in your long term recovery.
We can develop an aftercare package that empowers you. One good benefit of finishing rehab is entering an alumni community program, where you can liaise with former clients and staff in a community based project. This useful network provides you with access to our special events, which also provides ongoing support and mentorship from other ex-clients in recovery. This gives you an ideal opportunity to reciprocate and offer encouragement to other members.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups remain an important function of long-term recovery because social responsibilities enable sobriety. You will receive long-term recovery support if you join groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous and attend weekly 12-step meetings. By attending local support group meetings you will hear, and understand, life experiences of other members. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to help them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with vital tools to stay sober, allowing them to be accountable for their actions to themselves and others.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Those living within a family with addiction issues are hurt, in various ways, by its negative consequences. All members of the family need guidance with a household addiction, not just the individual struggling with addiction. By taking part in family support groups, you can manage stressful situations more effectively, and be able to support your loved one in recovery. Some helpful support groups for families and children affected by addiction include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
