What are the treatment options available in Stanislaus?

Through integrating treatments, the hidden causes of drug addiction can be explored and treated. Identifying coping mechanisms to treat the root causes of your addiction is just as important as treating the symptoms of addiction.

Private Residential Programs

A residential rehab program is when you live at the rehab center and receive all your treatment at the property. One of the key benefits is access to ongoing treatment and guidance. By moving out of your home and into a treatment facility, you can protect yourself from the those obvious triggers that contributed to you developing a drug addiction.

If you stay in a safe and secure environment you can safeguard yourself from relapse and increase the likelihood of finishing your rehab program. Clients who struggle with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and extreme dependencies are strongly advised to enroll for an inpatient treatment program. We understand that the first few months of recovery are usually challenging and after a residential rehab program, you will need to stay focused so that you can maintain long term sobriety. When the inpatient program is complete you will have the skills to be independent and your focus will be on your new journey and the things you want to achieve from life.

Do You Need Help?

We work together towards sobriety.

Sober Living Programs

A sober living program will help you with important skills you need, through support and guidance from addiction specialists. You can anticipate:

  1. A house manager checking in on you daily
  2. Setting the boundaries for acceptable behavior in recovery
  3. Getting guidance and companionship from other individuals who share similar challenges

Outpatient Programs

The flexibility of outpatient treatment programs means that you do not have to stop going to work or attending family commitments, as you can come to the treatment facility and have regular treatments in your own time.

Outpatient programs usually offer:

  1. Education on the abuse of drugs
  2. Group therapy and individual sessions as vehicles for therapeutic intervention – You must be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may remain in it for longer than a year if necessary.

Detox Only Programs

Most individuals need a medical detox to initiate substance rehabilitation, as it deals with physical dependencies on substances by ridding it from your system. As your body gets used to functioning without the substance in your body, you could experience withdrawal symptoms.

This starts the process of the recovery process, following which you will identify and overcome the latent causes of your addictive behavior to avoid a repeat of the same cycle. It is normal to experience withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after the substance has been removed from your body. Relapse is less of a problem if you are equipped with the vital skills necessary to navigate your path in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

Private treatment can be paid yourself or claimed through your health insurance. Most insurance companies will contribute to at least part of the costs associated with drug and alcohol rehab, including a medically-assisted detox, rehab therapy and medical supplies, as well as aftercare support. The amount covered for your treatment will be contingent on your provider and policy.

We recommend that you confirm the amount you can claim on your policy before enrolling in a rehab program. Our Verify Your Insurance page will determine the amount of cover you can claim against.

If you opt out of cover from your insurance provider, you will need to pay directly for your treatment. Many treatment centers offer payment plans to clients who may find paying upfront for treatment a challenge.

State Funded Programs

If you have a substance dependence and have limited resources to pay privately for it, you can apply for a state-funded rehab program. Through the use of funds from federal and state sources as well as Medicaid, these programs may facilitate treatments such as:

  1. Medically-assisted detoxes
  2. Rehabilitation services and aftercare support

State-funded treatment programs offer support to individuals who reside in low income households or do not have health insurance. In order to qualify you will need to provide details regarding:

  1. Proof of residence
  2. Proof of earnings
  3. Your medical records and information about your substance issues
  4. Proof that you reside in the US legally

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Stanislaus

The early stages of recovery can feel difficult once you leave a rehab center. At rehab you were in a professionally supported, safe environment. 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. 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 extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Because life doesn’t always work out how we want it to, and 60% of individuals may relapse on completing rehab, taking part in an aftercare program is needed support for long-term sobriety. Once you complete your rehab program, you will consider the services most beneficial to your needs long-term, and an aftercare program will be implemented to help you sustain from drinking or taking drugs.

Those who complete their treatment programs can join an alumni community program like ours, which provides you the chance to interact with peers and staff. With this network you will be able to attend social events and receive encouragement and advice from other people who are in recovery as well. We encourage you to consider supporting other members who are active in your network if that feels right.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Taking part in support groups is useful because connecting with others enable long-lasting addiction recovery. The 12-steps are is continued by support groups like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous which have continued helping people in recovery by hosting group meetings. During support group meetings, you will share and listen to other member’s recovery stories from other members. Companionship, empowerment and accountability for our actions are key to long-term recovery, and support groups provide many with the necessary tools to stay sober.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Each person in a family is damaged, to different degrees, by addiction issues. It’s not just the person with the addiction who is hurt, the other people in the family need help too.
