When we refer to ‘rehab’ for addiction, it includes therapeutic interventions and medical treatments required to address addictions on substances such as prescription drugs and illegal drugs including meth.

Private Residential Programs
Residential addiction treatment programs require you to live at the rehab center and undergo your treatments on-site. Its key benefit is that you will receive holistic addiction treatment and support 24-hours a day.
By taking yourself away from your home environment and residing at the treatment centre you can safeguard yourself against the triggers that keep you trapped in the cycle of substance dependence. When you reside in a safe and secure environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and improve the chances of finishing your rehab program. Clients who need treatment for dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and severe substance dependencies are encouraged to enroll for an inpatient addiction treatment program. An inpatient treatment program will assist you in getting sober, but it’s important to note that maintaining sobriety requires persistent effort as the first year of recovery are usaully challenging. When the inpatient program is complete you will acquire skills to be independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are designed with the required support to help people in recovery get what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They assist you through:
- A house manager to check in with you daily
- Develop guidelines for your behavior in recovery
- Support and new friendships from those who are having similar challenges to you.
Outpatient addiction treatment programs provide flexibility because you can continue your work or family commitments, while visiting the rehab facility for treatments.
Outpatient programs typically provide you with:
- Education on misusing substances
- Group therapy and individual therapy as vehicles for therapeutic intervention – You should be enrolled in an outpatient program for at least three months, and may continue treatment for a year if necessary.
Detox Only Programs
Participating in a drug or alcohol detoxification program is a vital stage in rehab as it addresses your physical dependency by removing substances from your system. Withdrawal symptoms are the body’s natural response to detoxification, as it begins getting used to operating without the substance.
This is just the start of the rehab process, and the next steps work to confront and manage the underlying reasons for your addiction, so that those same issues do not repeat. Many substances result in withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after they have been eliminated from your body. Your chances of relapsing are mitigated as you develop the important skills necessary for long-term success.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private rehab will have to be paid out of pocket or claimed through your insurance policy. In general, insurance providers will contribute to the costs of treatment, to some extent, including a drug or alcohol detox regime, rehab therapy, and relapse prevention programs. The amount covered is down to your provider and the details of your policy agreement. We recommend that you find out how much cover you are entitled to before enrolling in a program.
Go to our Verify Your Insurance page to find out about the cover you qualify for. If you do not want cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the treatment centre directly. It may be possible to opt in to a payment plan if you cannot afford to pay the full amount straight away.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehabilitation programs are aimed at people who want to overcome a substance or alcohol use disorder but have limited resources to enroll in a program. By using funds from federal and state sources as well as Medicaid, these programs may facilitate treatments such as:
- Services for a safe detox (medically-managed if required.

State-funded rehab programs are vital to those who are unable to get private health insurance or who reside in poorer areas. During the application process you will be asked for:

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Santa Rosa
Remaining active in addiction recovery can feel a challenge once you leave the rehab center. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. 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. In our experience, clients with intense dependencies and those who do not develop the necessary support structure find long term recovery more difficult when they 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 is a resource to support your recovery when you go back to your daily life. Because it’s hard to predict what could happen in day-to-day life, up to 60% of clients in recovery relapse, this makes ongoing aftercare an essential feature of long-term recovery. Once you complete your rehab program, you will discuss the services most beneficial to your needs long-term, and an aftercare package will be implemented to help you sustain from drinking or taking drugs.
Individuals who complete their treatment programs can join an alumni community program like ours, which gives you the opportunity to engage with staff and others in early recovery. You will have access to team events and receive guidance and encouragement from other people who are in recovery long-term. You may choose to pay the favor forward, by offering your support to other peers.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups remain key to long-term recovery as they monopolize on the need for social structures in recovery. By taking part in support groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you can follow the principles of the 12 steps by attending local meetings for life-long support. You will benefit from other people’s experiences and share your own challenges in recovery. By building friendships and committing to the 12-steps, those in recovery will feel able to take responsibility for their actions and protect those around them.
Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction
Everyone in a family is negatively impacted by a loved one struggling with addiction, some more than others. Support and guidance is just as necessary for all family members as it is for the individual with the addiction issues. By joining family support groups, you will manage stress more efficiently, and be able to provide better to your loved one in recovery. Your family will benefit from support groups including:
- Parents of Addicted Loved Ones
- SMART Recovery Family & Friends
- NAMI Family Support Groups
- Families Anonymous
