Private Residential Programs
Residential rehab programs require you to stay at the treatment center and take part in your treatments on-site. Access to 24/7 support and addiction treatment is one of the major benefits.
If you stay at a rehab center you are away from most of the triggers in your home environment that could encourage your substance abuse. If you stay in a controlled environment that is designed to be supportive, you have a better chance of successfully completing your addiction treatment program without relapse and its potential dangers.
A residential program provides the best outcome when you have a dual diagnosis, an intense substance dependency or co-occurring disorders. You can take the initial steps to sobriety by enrolling in a residential program, however to overcome the challenges of the early stages of addiction recovery, you have to commit to a new life of sobriety. Upon completion of your inpatient rehab program, you must transition towards further independence as you set goals for your new sober life.

Sober Living Programs
You can build the skills needed to stay sober by participating in a sober living program, which will support you through the early stages of recovery. This is achieved by:
- A house manager to check in on you regularly
- Establishing boundaries for acceptable behavior in recovery
- Receiving support and companionship from others who share similar life experiences
Outpatient rehab programs provide flexibility because you can carry on attending job or family obligations, and visit the rehab center for treatments.
Outpatient programs are best known for:
- Education on the abuse of drugs
- Group therapy and individual sessions as vehicles for addiction recovery – You must be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may remain in it for a year if necessary.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in rehab and is performed to address your physical dependency on a substance by removing any trace of it from your body. Withdrawal symptoms are the body’s natural response to detoxification, as it begins getting used to functioning without substances.
This starts the process of your rehab journey, following which you will come to terms with and overcome the root causes of your psychological dependence to avoid repeating the same cycle. Many drugs result in withdrawal and cravings for a long time after they have been removed from your system. Developing the necessary skills can help you to limit your risk of relapse as you focus on your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
The private rehab costs may be claimed back through your health insurance or paid directly. Many insurance companies will cover at least parts of your rehab treatment, including medical detox, rehab programs, and any aftercare provisions you may need. The amount of cover offered by your policy is set by your provider and the policy agreement. We recommend that you confirm the amount of cover you can claim before you take part in a program.
You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover that is available to you. If you do not want cover from your insurance provider, you will need to pay the treatment centre directly. Some rehab centers may extend payment plans when clients find the costs unaffordable upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you want to overcome your substance or alcohol problems but have limited resources to pay for private rehab, you can apply for a state-funded rehabilitation program. With the help of funds from a combination of state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these rehab programs will remove hurdles to rehab by providing:
- Medically-assisted detox
- Addiction Rehabilitation and aftercare services.
State-funded treatment programs are available to people who have no private health insurance or who reside in low income households. During the application process you will be asked for:

As many as 60% of people in recovery will relapse because of the unpredictable changes they experience, so enrolling in aftercare programs can improve your chance of staying sober.

Alumni programs are an extra bonus to completing rehab and allows you community based support with former clients and staff. You can participate in Alumno events, join meetings and receive advice and encouragement from others who are also in active recovery. This gives you an ideal opportunity to reciprocate and offer encouragement to other members.
