What are the treatment options available in Redding?
Identifying and healing the latent causes behind your drug or alcohol dependence can be achieved through the use of an integrated treatment program. It is important to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping methods need to be considered, in order for you to cope with the issues that lead to the substance dependency.
Private Residential Programs
A residential treatment program allows you to live at the rehab facility and receive all necessary treatment at the property. One of the biggest pros is access to ongoing treatment and guidance.
If you leave your home and move into a rehab facility, you can remove yourself from exposure to triggers that would have influenced your decision to abuse substances or alcohol. If you reside in a safe and supportive environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and increase the likelihood of finishing your addiction treatment program.
If you struggle with a severe substance dependency, or you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential addiction treatment program should be considered. A residential program will assist you in getting sober, however maintaining sobriety requires ongoing effort as the first year of recovery are usually hard for many people. When you have finished your residential treatment programe you will need to become more autonomous and set new goals and challenges.

Sober Living Programs
Support and guidance are key to a sober living program to help you control your future plans more effectively. Sober living programs typically include:
- Sending a house manager to check in on you daily
- Working on the sorts of behaviors that are acceptable in recovery
- Working on supportive and beneficial relations with others in recovery
Outpatient rehab programs offer more flexibility because you can continue work commitments while living at home, but you attend the rehab facility for any treatments.
Outpatient programs typically offer:
- Education around substance abuse
- Counseling services and therapy through group settings or one-on-one sessions – The minimum duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and may last longer than a year, this is based on your personal requirements.
Detox Only Programs
Participating in a drug or alcohol detoxification program is a crucial hurdle in rehab as it deals with your physical dependency by removing substances from your system. As your body adapts without the drug it was dependent on, you will start to have withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal marks the beginning of the process of rehab, and needs to be followed up by dealing with the main causes of your addictive behavior, to avoid repeating the same pattern of behaviors.
Given that most substances result in withdrawal, you may experience withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a few weeks after your detox is complete. Relapse is less risky if you are equipped with the coping skills that will help you navigate your journey in recovery.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you do proceed with private treatment, you can contact your healthcare provider to make a claim or pay for treatment yourself. Most health insurance providers will cover at least some of your rehab treatment, including detox, therapy and counseling, medication and relapse support. The amount of cover offered by your policy is set by your provider and the terms and conditions of your policy.
We advise that you find out how much cover you have prior to enrolling in a program. To find out what you could claim through your insurance provider, click on our Verify Your Insurance page here. If you do not make a claim from your insurance provider you must pay the center directly for your treatment programme. Some treatment facilities can offer payment plans to those who are unable to pay the full cost of rehab.
State Funded Programs
State-funded treatment programs are recommended to people who are ready to tackle a drug or alcohol dependency but have limited funds to take part in a private rehab program. These programs provide funding from Medicaid and state/federal budgets to provide addiction recovery through:
