Alcohol and drug disorders introduce challenges when you or someone you love experiences them. Fortunately long term recovery can be achieved if you utilize proven rehabilitation strategies because addiction is a treatable illness.
Our Guide will explain how integrating addiction treatment approaches can encourage a sober future for yourself or a loved one.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
The term substance ‘rehab’ is applicable to all of the medical and therapeutic treatments used to help people who are struggling with dependencies on prescription drugs or illegal drugs. Rehab provides better chances of long term recovery success when it is customized to the unique needs of the client and includes medically-assisted detoxification, inpatient or outpatient programs, and relapse management techniques in the form of aftercare.

What are the treatment options available in Vallejo?
An integrated approach is considered the most effective way to address and heal the root causes of substance use disorders and alcoholism. Learning coping strategies to treat the primary causes of your substance misuse is just as vital as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
When you reside within the facility where you are receiving therapy, you are in a residential program. Its major benefit is that you will receive integrated addiction treatment and support day by day.
By moving out of your home and into a rehab facility, you will protect yourself from any potential triggers that culminated in you developing a substance use disorder. Successfully completing your treatment program and avoiding relapse is considerably easier when you stay in a protective and controlled environment.
If you struggle with an intense substance dependency, or if you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential treatment program should be considered. An inpatient addiction treatment program will help you with getting sober, but maintaining sobriety will require persistent effort as the first few months of recovery are usually hard for many people. After you finish your residential addiction treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you start to think about what you want from your life free from drugs or alcohol.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living rehab programs enable you to have more stability in your life, with guidance and a support structure. The programs feature:
- A house manager to check in on you regularly
- Setting the guidelines for good behavior in recovery
- Receiving guidance and companionship from others in recovery who share similar life experiences
The process of alcohol or drug detox from your body is the first phase of rehabilitation, as it rids the system of the substance, putting an end to your physical dependence. Symptoms of withdrawal typically appear during the detox phase because your body has to learn to function without alcohol or substances it was dependent on. This marks the start of your rehab process, following which you will identify and deal with the underlining causes of your addictive behavior to avoid a repeat of those same cycles.
Once the substance has been eliminated from your system you may develop cravings for it, along with some withdrawal symptoms for an extended period of time. Learning important skills can assist you to limit your risk of relapse as you focus on your new life.
Outpatient rehab programs provide greater flexibility because you can continue work commitments while living at home, but you visit the rehab facility for your treatments.
Outpatient programs will help you with:
- Education around substance abuse
- Therapy and counseling in the form of group therapy or one-to-one interventions – The length of any outpatient program is unique to your situation and lasts between three months to more than a year.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you wish to to opt for private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or start a claim via your healthcare policy. Most insurance companies will contribute to at least part of the costs associated with addiction rehab, such as a medically-managed detox, rehab treatment and medication, as well as post-treatment support. The amount you are able to claim should be checked against your policy rules and your provider. We recommend that you find out how much cover you can claim for before enrolling in a program.
To find out what you could be entitled to, go to our Verify Your Insurance page here. By not making a claim via your health insurance cover, the balance of your treatment programme will need to be covered directly. In some cases, it may be possible to negotiate a payment plan if you cannot afford to pay the full amount straight away.
State Funded Programs
If you are struggling with drug or alcohol use disorder and limited financial means to pay for private rehab, you may be suitable for a state-funded addiction rehabilitation program. These programs make use of funding from Medicaid and state/federal budgets to help with recovery through:
- A medical detox for those with severe dependencies
- Addiction counseling and ongoing care
State-funded rehab programs are vital to those who do not have private health insurance or who live in low income areas. During the application process you will need to show:
- You live where you say you do
- Any income or earnings
- Evidence about your drug or alcohol abuse
- Living in the US by legal means

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Vallejo
Being active in recovery can be difficult once you finish rehab treatment. At the rehab center the environment was safe and you had professional support. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. Clients who had severe dependencies find long term recovery more difficult when they leave rehab if they do not have a social support structure. Without the relevant support and aftercare to guide you in your new life, relapse is a real possibility.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs
Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. Because it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen from one day to the next, as many as 60% of clients in recovery sadly relapse, this makes ongoing aftercare an invaluable feature of long-term recovery.
As you near the end of your treatment program, you will be asked about the therapies and services that will help support long-term recovery, and we will create aftercare packages to support you. Clients who complete their drug or alcohol treatment programs will gain access to an alumni community program such as ours, which gives you the opportunity to engage with staff and others in early recovery.
You can participate in Alumno events, join meetings and receive support and encouragement from other individuals who are also in recovery as well. We encourage you to consider helping other former clients who are active in your network if you decide to.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups enable lasting recovery because they understand the paramount role that social connections play in driving addiction recovery. By joining a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can continue the 12-step model by attending regular meetings for life-long support. During local meetings, you will share and learn from experiences. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to support them in their recovery journey. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools tools to maintain sobriety, allowing them to take responsibility for their own journey in recovery.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Each family member is affected, to a varying degree, by addiction. It’s not only the person with the substance misuse who is hurt, the other family members need support as well.
Taking part in family support groups can help you to cope better, and also help you to provide greater support to those struggling with dependency. Examples of Family and Child Support Groups include:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
