A consolidated treatment approach is the most successful way to tackle the root causes of drug or alcohol addictions. It is crucial to treat the symptoms of addiction, but coping strategies need to be considered, in order for you to deal with the triggers that lead to the substance dependency.

Private Residential Programs

A residential treatment program requires you to live at the rehab center and receive all necessary treatment on the property. It is obviously beneficial to have 24-hour care and treatment provisions. By moving out of your home environment and into a treatment center, you will protect yourself from thethose potential triggers that contributed to you developing a drug addiction.

By choosing to stay in a safe and supportive environment, you have a greater chance of completing your treatment program while reducing the chance of relapse and its potential dangers. If you suffer with co-occurring disorders, dual diagnosis or an intense substances including alcohol, a residential program is ideally suited to meet your rehabilitation needs. Taking part in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to a sober life, and sustaining it will require ongoing focus because addiction recovery is hard during the early stages. Upon completion of your inpatient rehab program, you must transition towards greater independence as you consider your goals for your new life.

Do You Need Help?

We work together towards recovery.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are structured with the necessary guidance to help those recovering from addiction achieve what they want from their life without drugs or alcohol. They guide you through:

  1. A house manager to check in on you and your progress
  2. Establishing guidelines for positive behavior in recovery
  3. Getting support and companionship from other individuals in recovery who have similar challenges

Outpatient Programs

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

Outpatient programs offer addiction recovery through:

  1. Education on the abuse of drugs
  2. Group therapy and individual therapy as drivers for addiction recovery – You should be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may continue treatment for a year if required.

Detox Only Programs

Going through a drug or alcohol detox program is the first step in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your system. As your body returns to normal function without substances in your body, you may experience withdrawal symptoms.

This is just the start of your rehab journey, the next stage is to tackle and address the underlying causes of your addiction, so that those same patterns do not continue. Many substances cause withdrawal and cravings for a few weeks after they have been eliminated from your body. Your chances of relapse can be reduced as you develop the necessary skills necessary for long-term abstinence.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you choose to commit to private rehab, you will need to cover the costs or start a claim via your health insurance provider. The majority of health insurance providers offer cover for some rehab, which includes medical detox, the rehab treatment program, medications and relapse prevention programs. The amount of cover you are entitled to claim will depend on your healthcare provider and policy type.

You should confirm the amount of cover you can claim before you take part in a rehab program. Our Verify Your Insurance page will determine the amount of cover you can claim against. If you don’t claim from private health insurance, the financial cost of rehab will need to be covered directly. Many rehab facilities offer payment plans to clients who cannot afford the cost upfront.

State Funded Programs

If you want to overcome your substance or alcohol addiction but due to limited resources cannot afford private treatment, you can enroll for a state-funded rehabilitation program. These programs make use of government funds from state budgets, Medicaid and federal government to assist recovery with:

  1. Services for a safe detox (medically-supervised if required.
  2. Rehab programs and aftercare support services

  1. Proof of who you are and where you live
  2. Proof of income

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Porterville

The early stages of addiction recovery can be difficult when you complete your treatment program. During your stay, you have been in a controlled and safe environment, supported by professionals. After leaving the rehab center you may encounter unanticipated challenges that you are not prepared for. 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 is a possibility without the right aftercare and support groups to help you navigate your new life.

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Porterville:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. Relapse may occur in up to 60% of people, and due to the natural events of life post-rehab, having extended support is an important part of your journey in recovery. When you near the completion of your treatment program, counselors will work with you to identify therapies and services that will help support long-term recovery, and we will create an aftercare program to guide you.

Alumni programs are a useful benefit to completing rehab and allows you community based support with former clients and staff. You will gain access to mentorship and guidance from other people in recovery, as well as take part in other Alumni events. You may want to pay the favor forward, by giving your support to other ex-clients who are in the same boat.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Participating in support groups is vital because social structures encourage long-lasting addiction recovery. If you join a group that follows the 12 steps, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, you can receive ongoing support via regular meetings. By attending nearby support group meetings you will listen to, and understand, other members’ experiences. By building friendships and committing to the 12-steps, individuals in recovery can feel encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Addiction causes pain to everyone in a household to varying degrees. The individual with the addiction needs support, but other members of the household need assistance too.

Family support groups have two benefits: you can help yourself and the person overcoming addiction. Family members will benefit from participating in support groups such as:

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