Private Residential Programs
Residential treatment programs require you to reside at the treatment facility and undergo your treatments on-site. Having Access to 24-hour support and treatment is obviously one of the key benefits.
By moving out of your home and into a rehab center, you can protect yourself from any potential triggers that culminated in you developing a drug dependency.
Successfully completing your residential rehab program and avoiding relapse is considerably easier if you remain in a protective and controlled environment. Those who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring illnesses and intense substance dependencies are recommended to enroll for an inpatient rehab program. Sobering up is attainable if you partake in a residential treatment program, but if you wish to maintain sober living you are going to need to rise above the challenges that come with the early stages of recovery. When your residential program is finished you will acquire skills to be independent and your focus will be on your new life and the things you want to achieve from it.

A detox program is the first step in rehab and is done to eliminate your physical dependence on a drug by removing any trace of it from your system. Symptoms of withdrawal is the body’s main response to detoxification, as it starts getting used to functioning without drugs or alcohol.
This starts the process of the recovery process, following which you will start to tackle the latent causes of your psychological dependence to avoid repeating the same cycle. You may experience some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for an extended period after your drug or alcohol detox phase has completed. Developing the necessary skills can limit your odds of relapse as you work on your new life.
Outpatient programs are easy to adjust to as you can continue any work/family obligations and still undergo treatments, by coming to the rehab center in your own time.
Outpatient programs assist you with:

- Group therapy and individual counseling as drivers for addiction recovery – You must be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may remain in it for longer than a year if necessary.
Paying for Private Treatment

The amount you are able to claim can be identified by your policy rules and your provider.
We recommend that you confirm the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling in rehab. By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can find out what cover you are able to claim. If you decide not to claim from your policy, you will need to fund your treatment. Many rehab providers provide payment plans to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.
