Discover more about how holistic rehabilitation services can assist yourself or someone you love in starting and maintaining recovery from substance dependence.
What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we speak about addiction ‘rehabilitation’, we mean the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments used to resolve dependencies on alcohol and drugs (including prescription medications).
Rehab is best when it is tailored to your own needs involving a medically-managed detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, as well as relapse prevention techniques.

A consolidated treatment approach provides a successful way to identify and address the prime causes of drug or alcohol addictions. Although symptoms of addiction need to be overcome, life skills will also be encouraged in order to focus on the main causes of your addiction issues.
Private Residential Programs
Living at a addiction rehab center and undergoing all of your treatments there is called being in a residential rehab program. Its core benefit is that you will receive integrated treatment and support throughout the day. Moving out of your home environment and entering a treatment facility will protect you against the stressors that negatively encourage your substance use.
You will be less susceptible to relapse when you complete your rehab program in a controlled center where the environment is supportive. Those who are struggling with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and severe dependencies are strongly advised to consider an inpatient addiction treatment program.
Taking part in a residential treatment program is an effective way to treat addiction, and sustaining it will require persistent focus because addiction recovery is a challenge during the first year. After your inpatient addiction treatment, you must consider what you’d like from your new life, as you focus on becoming more independent.
Do You Need Help?
We work together towards sobriety.
Sober Living Programs
A sober living program will provide you with the skills you need, using guidance and support. You can expect:
- A house manager who visits you daily
- Supporting you on acceptable ways to behave in recovery
- Fostering necessary friendships with others in recovery who can empathize with your experiences
Outpatient rehab programs offer more flexibility because you can continue with work commitments while living at home, but you attend the rehab facility for addiction treatments.
Outpatient programs usually provide you with:
- Education around substance misuse
- Counseling services and therapy through group support or individual sessions – The minimum duration of outpatient treatment is three months and continue for longer than a year, this will depend on your individual requirements.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in rehab and is performed to break your physical dependency on a substance by removing any trace of it from your system. As your body returns to normal function without the substance in your body, you could experience withdrawal symptoms.
The withdrawal process symbolizes the beginning of the process of rehab, and should always be followed up by addressing the main causes of your dependency, to prevent the same pattern of behaviors. It is possible that you will develop some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for some time after your drug or alcohol detox program has concluded. In rehab you will develop the coping skills for long-term abstinence, so that you can reduce the risk of relapse in the future.
Paying for Private Treatment
The private rehab costs may be claimed back through your insurance policy or self-funded. A large number of health insurance providers will cover at least a portion of your rehab treatment, including detox, rehab therapy, medication and post-rehab support. The amount of cover given will differ based on the details of your policy as well as your provider’s terms of agreement.
It is good practice to find out about your cover prior to enrolling in a rehab program. Click on our Verify Your Insurance page to find out about the cover you qualify for.
If you decide not to claim from your policy, you will need to fund your treatment. Some rehab facilities include payment plans to clients so that cost is not a barrier to treatment.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehabilitation programs are useful for those who struggle with alcohol addiction or substance dependencies and who may not have the resources to afford private treatment.
Through the use of funds from federal and state resources including Medicaid, these programs may provide treatments such as:
- Medically supervised drug or alcohol detox
- Rehabilitation services and aftercare support

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Sonoma
You may experience some initial difficulties once you leave rehab. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address. 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. Relapse can happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.
