It can be so challenging when you or someone you care about has difficulties with alcohol or drug addiction, that you don’t know how to get help. You can treat dependence even though it is a disease, and long term recovery is likely through professional addiction treatment intervention methods.
We will explain how addiction recovery is achievable for you or a loved one if an holistic treatment method is utilized.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
The term addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is applicable to all of the medical and therapeutic treatments used to help people who have dependencies on recreational, illegal and prescription substances. Rehab provides the best chance of long term recovery success if it is customized to the individual needs of the client and includes medically-managed detoxification, inpatient or outpatient programs, and relapse prevention techniques in the form of aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in San Jose Evergreen?
Integrated treatment is usually the ideal manner in which to tackle the root causes of drug and alcohol addictions. Symptoms of addiction should be treated but learning new life skills empowers you to face the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
Residential addiction treatment programs require you to reside on the same property that you are undergoing treatments in. One of the major pros is access to ongoing treatment and addiction specialists.
When you stay at a treatment facility you will be safe from many of the stressors in your home environment that may encourage your substance use. Finishing your residential rehab program and avoiding relapse is much easier if you are in a secure and supportive environment.
When you struggle with an intense substance dependency, or suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential addiction treatment program is best. An inpatient treatment program will support you with getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require constant effort as the early stages of recovery can be hard for many people. Once the inpatient program is complete you will want to be more independent and your focus will be on your new life and the things you want to achieve from it.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs enable people in recovery build greater control over their lives, with support and some guidance. Sober living programs usually have:
- Round-the-clock guidance from a house manager
- Developing guidelines to manage your behavior in recovery
- Helping you to build positive relationships with peers who have similar difficulties to you
Detox Only Programs
With the help of a medical detox you can eliminate substances from your body safely and put an end to your physical dependence. During the detox phase you will go through withdrawal symptoms as the system stabilizes to work without the substance it was physically reliant on.
Upon completion of the detox phase, you will move ahead in your rehab journey, as you come to terms with the primary causes that contributed to your dependency, to help you recognise the patterns and avoid it in the future. It is common to encounter withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after the substance has been removed from your system. Developing the necessary skills can help you to limit your odds of relapse as you become adapted to your new life.
Outpatient rehab programs are typically more flexible and allow you to have treatment at the treatment facility while you continue important career or family commitments.
Outpatient programs usually provide:
- Drug abuse education
- Counseling and therapy involving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or group sessions – Your personal needs often determine the length of your outpatient program, which could extend from a few months to over year.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide to continue with private rehab, you will need to cover the costs or start a claim through your healthcare policy. Most health insurance providers typically cover at least some of your rehab treatment, such as detox, rehab therapy, medicines that are prescribed and post-rehab support. The total amount you will be able to claim should be checked against your policy rules and your provider. We recommend that you identify how much cover you can claim before signing up for a rehab program.

If you do not claim against your policy you must pay the center directly for your rehab treatment. Some addiction treatment facilities will offer a payment plan to individuals who are struggling to pay the full cost of treatment.
State Funded Programs

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in San Jose Evergreen
You may notice some initial challenges when first leaving treatment. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Because no one can predict what’s going to happen in day-to-day life, up to 60% of clients in recovery relapse, this makes ongoing aftercare an invaluable component of addiction recovery. Once you approach the end of your rehab program, you will discuss the therapies and counseling services most beneficial to your needs long-term, and an aftercare package will be implemented to help you sustain from drinking or taking drugs.
Alumni programs are a great benefit to completing rehab and gives you community based support with peers and staff members. You can come to special events, join groups and get advice and motivation from others who are also in long-term sobriety. We encourage you to consider supporting other peers who are active in your network if that feels right.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups encourage long-term recovery because they understand the key role that social structures play in supporting addiction recovery. The 12-step model is maintained by support groups like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous which have a long history in helping individuals in recovery by offering regular meetings. When you take part in support group meetings, you will have the ability to share your challenges in recovery and feel empowered by other members in similar walks of life. Through companionship and committing to the programme, those in recovery will feel encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and protect those around them.

The whole family unit is hurt negatively by addiction in the home, some more than others. Support is critical for all members of a family, not only the individual struggling with the addiction. Participating in family support groups can help you to cope better, and also encourage you to provide greater support to those struggling with addiction.
Some useful support groups for families and children affected by addiction include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
