What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
Addiction ‘rehab’ is the process of medical care and therapy to address your dependency on drugs such as recreational drugs, prescription drugs and alcohol.

What are the treatment options available in Solano?
Integrated rehab is typically the best manner in which to deal with the root causes of drug and alcohol use disorders. Whilst treating the causes of addiction is important, you also need to build coping skills to address the issues that lead to your dependency on substances.
Private Residential Programs
Residential treatment programs require you to live at the treatment center and take part in your treatments on-site. The main benefit is that you will have integrated support and treatment throughout the day. By moving out of your comfort zone and into a treatment center, you will protect yourself from the those obvious triggers that culminated in you developing a drug addiction.
By having an environment around you that is supportive, you reduce the chance of relapse and you are more likely to complete your addiction treatment program.
Residential addiction treatment programs are useful for clients with strong alcohol or drug dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. Enrolling in a residential rehab program is the most effective way to treat addiction, and maintaining it requires persistent focus because maintaining recovery is a challenge during the early stages. Finishing your residential treatment program is the start of your new, independent life and you will be focused on goal-setting for your drug and alcohol free future.

Sober Living Programs
You can develop the skills needed to stay sober by engaging in a sober living program, which will support you through the transitional period. This is achieved by:
- Support daily from a house manager
- Establishing parameters for good recovery behavior
- Nurturing new relationships with other people who are working through similar types of challenges
Detox Only Programs
The need for alcohol or drug detox from your system is the first stage towards rehab, because it removes traces of the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. During the stage of detox you will experience withdrawal symptoms as your body starts to work without the substance it was dependent on.
The withdrawal process symbolizes the beginning of the rehabilitation process, and needs to be followed up by dealing with the root causes of your addiction, to prevent the same damaging pattern of behaviors. You should expect to feel some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for a few weeks after your drug or alcohol detox phase has concluded. Rehab will help you learn important skills that are designed so that you limit the risk of relapse.
Outpatient programs provide more flexibility as you can attend work commitments and live at home, but you visit the rehab facility for any treatments.
Outpatient programs support you with:
- Education on drug or alcohol use
- Therapeutic and psychological interventions such as group and individual therapy – An outpatient program may last between 3-4 months to a year, this will depend on your needs.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you choose private rehab, you can self-fund or make a claim through your healthcare insurance. In most cases, insurance providers will allow you to claim against the costs of treatment, to some extent, including a medical detox program, treatment program, and relapse prevention programs. The amount of cover you can get will be determined by your provider and your policy details.
We strongly suggest that you double check on the amount covered for treatment prior to enrolling at the treatment centre. You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover that is available to you.
If you decide not to claim from your health insurance plan, you must pay for your treatment. Many rehab centers provide payment plans to clients who may struggle to pay for treatment upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you want to overcome your substance or alcohol dependency but due to limited resources cannot afford private rehab, you can enroll for a state-funded rehabilitation program.
Support can be offered with funds available from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these types of programs can subsidize your recovery with:
- Medically supervised drug or alcohol detox
- Rehabilitation programs and aftercare support
State-funded rehab programs are accessible to individuals who are unable to get private health insurance or who live in poorer households. When applying you will need to show:
- You live where you say you do

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Solano
Leaving treatment and returning home can prove difficult for people starting out in recovery. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support. Once you leave rehab there may be new triggers that put your coping skills to the test. If you had a severe dependency or if you leave rehab without the appropriate social support, you will find long term recovery to be more challenging. Guidance and aftercare support is integral in the early stages of recovery to help prevent relapse.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs are an extension of rehab once you leave the rehab center. By participating in aftercare support, you can lessen the risk of relapse which hurts as many as 60% of individuals who have recently finished treatment. It is an essential service provided by most treatment centres.
Once you reach the end of your treatment program you must give some thought to the counseling and therapies that are most beneficial to long-term sobriety and an aftercare package will be developed to help you. Clients who finish their rehab programs can join an alumni community program like ours, which gives you the chance to engage with staff and peers.
You will enjoy access to Alumni events and receive guidance and encouragement from ex-clients who are also in recovery long-term. This gives you an opportunity to reciprocate and encourage other individuals in recovery.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Through support group participation you can enable a support structure that is helpful to your long-term sobriety. The 12-steps are is followed by support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which have for many decades, been helping people in recovery by hosting group meetings.
When you attend local support group meetings you will hear, and understand, other members’ experiences. Friendship, empowerment and taking responsibility for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and meetings provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone in a family unit is hurt negatively by addiction in the home, and some to a greater extent than others. The individual with the dependency needs support, but other members of the household also need help.

- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
