Whenever you or someone you care about has an alcohol or drug use disorder you may not know how to address it. Even though addiction is a disease, it can be managed when evidence-based rehabilitation methods are explored. Long term recovery from addiction is achievable.
In this guide we detail how an integrated rehabilitation program can enable you or someone you love to start and sustain sober living.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is a holistic treatment program that utilizes both the therapeutic and medical interventions to treat legal, illegal and recreational substance dependencies. Rehab is best when it is tailored to suit your unique lifestyle involving a medically-managed detox, residential and outpatient care, as well as aftercare support.

What are the treatment options available in Daly City?
A consolidated treatment approach provides a successful way to identify and address the prime causes of drug or alcohol addictions. While treating the causes of addiction is necessary, you also must build coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
When you live at the property where you are receiving addiction treatment, you are part of a residential program. It is extremely beneficial to have round-the-clock support and treatment options.
When you reside at a rehab center you are free from most of the triggers in your home environment that may encourage your substance dependency. By having an environment around you that is supportive, relapse is far less likely and you are more likely to finish your rehab program.
Inpatient addiction treatment programs are recommended for patients with strong drug and alcohol dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. Addiction recovery is possible if you take part in a residential rehab program, but if you want to maintain sober living you are going to need to overcome the difficulties that come with the first few months of recovery. On completion of your residential addiction treatment program, you must transition towards further independence as you set goals for your new substance-free life.

Sober Living Programs
You can develop the skills needed to stay sober by participating in a sober living program, which will support you through the transitional period. This is done by:
- A house manager checking in on you every day
- Establishing guidelines for acceptable behavior in recovery
- Getting guidance and companionship from other individuals in recovery who have similar difficulties
By engaging in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, by visiting the rehab center for treatment weekly and continue work or family commitments.
Outpatient programs offer:
- Education about substance misuse
- Counseling services and therapy by means of group support or one-on-one sessions – The duration of outpatient treatment is 3/4 months and may last longer than a year, this depends on your personal needs.
Detox Only Programs
The need for alcohol or drug detox from your body is the first step towards rehabilitation, as it eliminates the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. Withdrawal symptoms are the body’s response to detox, as it starts getting used to functioning without substances.
This starts the process of the recovery journey, following which you will identify and overcome the root causes of your addiction to avoid repeating the same cycle. Once alcohol or drugs have been eliminated from your system you may develop cravings for it, including some withdrawal symptoms for an extended period of time. Rehab will help you learn important skills to take into your new life so that you do not relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment will need to be settled self-funded or claimed via your health insurance. The good news is that most health insurance providers usually cover at least a portion of your rehab program, which includes detox, rehab therapy, medication and post-rehab support. The amount of cover offered will differ based on the fine print of your policy as well as your provider’s terms and conditions.
We suggest that you find out how much cover you are entitled to prior to enrolling in a program. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you have access to. If you decide not to claim against your insurance, you will be liable to pay for your treatment directly. Many rehab providers will consider payment options to clients who cannot afford the full cost upfront.
State Funded Programs
State-funded treatment programs are useful for people who have alcohol or substance addictions and who may not have the means to afford private treatment. Through the use of funds from state and federal sources as well as Medicaid, these programs may provide treatments including:
- Medically-assisted detox programs
- Rehab treatment and ongoing support
State-funded rehabilitation programs are designed to help individuals on tight budgets or those with little to no health insurance. To apply you need:
- Proof of low income
- Proof of residence
- Your personal medical details regarding your drug or alcohol misuse
- Proof you have the legal right to live in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Daly City
Leaving treatment and returning home can present challenges for people in early recovery. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. 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.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. Up to 60% of people in recovery will relapse due to unpredictable challenges in life, taking part in aftercare can improve your chance of avoiding these pitfalls. As you near the completion of your treatment program, counselors will work with you to identify therapies and services that will facilitate long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to protect you.
Alumni programs are an extra bonus to completing rehab and provides you community support with former clients and staff members. Via this network you will be attending fun events and receive encouragement and advice from other members who are in active recovery. We encourage you to consider offering guidance to other peers within your network if you decide to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups are an integral component of long-term recovery because social structures inspire lasting sobriety. With the support of groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can follow the principles of the 12 steps and attend local meetings for life-long support. When you attend nearby support group meetings you will listen to, and understand, other members’ experiences. Companionship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Addiction negatively impacts everyone living in the family unit to different degrees. Support is crucial for all members of a family, not just the person struggling with the addiction.
By a family support group, families will learn to manage stress more efficiently, and be able to support your family member recovering from addiction. Some useful 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
