What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

The term addiction ‘rehabilitation’ is applicable to all of the medical and therapeutic treatments used to help people who are struggling with dependencies on illegal substances including meth, or prescribed medications such as opiates. Treatment that is unique to your individual needs is successful when it includes medically supported detox, inpatient programs, outpatient care and extended support.

What are the treatment options available in Petaluma?

Through integrating treatments, the primary causes of drug dependence can be tackled and treated. Even though treating the causes of addiction is important, you also should build coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your substance dependency.

Private Residential Programs

When you live at the center where you are receiving therapy, you are taking part in a residential program. One of the main benefits is having 24-hour treatment and support.

By taking yourself away from your home and living at the rehab centre you will protect yourself from the stressors that keep you trapped in the cycle of drug or alcohol dependence.

When the environment around you is supportive, you reduce the chance of relapse and you are far more likely to complete your rehab program. If you struggle with co-occurring illnesses, dual diagnosis or a strong dependency, an inpatient program is best suited to meet your rehabilitation needs. Enrolling in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to a sober life, and maintaining it requires persistent focus because maintaining recovery is a challenge during the first few months. After you finish your residential treatment program your priority will be your transition to greater independence as you focus on what you want from your future.

Do You Need Help?

We work together towards recovery.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are structured with the required support to help recovering individuals achieve what they need from life. They support you through:

  1. Sending a house manager to check in on you every day
  2. Prescribing the sorts of behaviors that are needed in recovery
  3. Developing supportive and meaningful connections with peers in recovery

Outpatient Programs

By taking part in an outpatient program you have more flexibility, as you will visit the rehabilitation center for treatment weekly and maintain important work or other commitments.

Outpatient programs assist you with:

  1. Education around substance dependence
  2. Therapy and counseling in the form of group therapy or one-to-one interventions – The length of an outpatient program is customized to your circumstances and lasts between three months to more than a year.

Detox Only Programs

Taking part in a detox program is an important stage in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by removing substances from your body. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol is the body’s response to detoxification, as it begins getting used to operating without the substance.

Once detox is complete you will press ahead in your recovery journey, as you address the underlying causes that contributed to your dependency, helping you cope and avoid it long-term. Many drugs cause temporary cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have completed detoxification. Your risk of relapse will be reduced as you build on the important skills necessary for long-term abstinence.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you make the decision to continue with private treatment, you can make a claim through your healthcare policy or pay the costs directly. Many health insurance providers will contribute to a portion of the costs of a rehab program, which would include a detox, therapy program and aftercare support. The amount of cover offered by your policy is dependent on your provider and the terms and conditions of your policy. You should find out how much cover you can claim before you register for a treatment program.

By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can find out what cover you can claim for. If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the cost of your rehab treatment needs to be covered directly. Some rehab facilities may provide payment plans to clients who can’t pay the full cost of rehab.

State Funded Programs

If you are suffering with substance or alcohol dependency and limited financial means to fund private rehab, you could be accepted for a state-funded rehabilitation program. With the use of stipends from state, federal and Medicaid budgets, these types of programs remove hurdles to rehab by providing:

  1. Safe & confidential medical detox
  2. Addiction therapy which includes relapse prevention programs

State-funded treatment programs are open to individuals who are unable to get private health insurance or who live in poorer households. When applying you will be asked for:

  1. Medical information that highlights your addiction issues
  2. Proof of living arrangements
  3. Proof of your income
  4. Evidence that shows you can stay in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Petaluma

Leaving a rehab center and returning home can be hard for people in the early stages of recovery. 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. Long term sobriety is more difficult to maintain when you have had a severe dependency and do not have social support when you leave rehab. Relapse can occur when you don’t have aftercare to support you in your new-found sobriety.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

An aftercare program continues to provide recovery support when you return to your home environment. Relapse rates can be as high as 60%, and because life is difficult at the best of times, extended support is an invaluable service to support your long-term recovery. Once you are near completion of your treatment program you will need to give some thought to the counseling and therapies most beneficial to long-term sobriety and an aftercare program will be developed to help you.

Alumni programs are a great bonus to completing treatment and provides you community based support with former clients and staff. You can attend special events, participate in a number of initiatives, build relationships, and receive support from other members who are also in recovery. If you want to, you can also reciprocate in the program by supporting other people if you like.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Support groups really are essential to long-term sobriety as they monopolize on the importance of social connections in recovery. To maintain addiction recovery, can receive long-term recovery support if you find local groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous by attending their 12-step meetings. When you attend nearby support group meetings you will listen to, and understand, the recovery stories of other people. 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

The entire family is negatively impacted by a loved one struggling with addiction, and some to a greater extent than others. Support and guidance is just as necessary for the family members as it is for the person with the substance use disorder. Family support groups provide two key benefits: you can help yourself and the individual with the addiction. Your family members can benefit from support groups like:

  • Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
  • SMART Recovery Family & Friends
  • NAMI Family Support Groups
  • Al-Anon
  • Families Anonymous
  • Alateen
  • Nar-Anon
