Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the needed support to help people in recovery achieve what they need from their new life without substance dependence. They guide you through:
- A house manager checking in on you every day
- Working on boundaries for good behavior in recovery
- Receiving guidance and companionship from other individuals who share similar challenges
By enrolling in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, by visiting the rehab center for treatment weekly and continue attending important work or other commitments.
Outpatient programs teach you:
- Education about substance misuse
- Counseling and therapy with the use of group settings or individual sessions – The required duration of outpatient treatment is three months and may last longer than a year, this will change based on your individual requirements.
Detox Only Programs
Going through a drug or alcohol detoxification program is the first hurdle in rehab as it helps address your physical dependency by removing substances from your system. As your body stabilizes without the substance in your system, you could experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
This process of detoxification marks the beginning of your rehab process, following which you will come to terms with and tackle the latent causes of your addiction to avoid a repeat of the same cycle. Many drugs drive symptoms of withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after they have been removed from your system. Your risk of relapsing will be reduced as you build on the skills required to cope with your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you opt for private rehab, you can self-fund or claim through your healthcare policy. Most health insurance providers offer cover for some rehab, which includes medical detox, the rehab program, medicines you may need and aftercare programs. The amount you can claim will be determined by your policy rules and your provider. It is good practice to find out about the amount you can claim before enrolling in a rehab program.
Go to our Verify Your Insurance page to find out about the cover you qualify for. If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the treatment costs will need to be covered directly. Some rehab centres provide payment options to clients so that they can pay for treatment in instalments.
State Funded Programs
If you are struggling with drug or alcohol use disorder and do not have the financial means to pay for private treatment, you might be suitable for a state-funded drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. Using funds from a combination of state, federal and Medicaid budgets, state-funded treatment programs remove hurdles to treatment by offering:
- A medical detox for those with severe dependencies
- Addiction counseling and ongoing support
If you are not covered by private health insurance or you do not have access to funds, you should apply for a state-funded rehab program. You have to provide:
