Private Residential Programs
If you are staying on the same property that you are undergoing your rehab treatments in, you are said to be in a residential treatment program. One of the key benefits is having daily treatment and care.
There is substantial value in removing yourself from the home environment and becoming fully engaged in the rehab program, because you are not sensitive to the stressors and triggers that may cause you to abuse drugs. By remaining in a secure environment that is designed to be supportive, you have a higher chance of completing your rehab program without relapse and its potential pitfalls. Patients who struggle with dual diagnosis, co-occurring illnesses or severe substance dependencies are encouraged to enroll for an inpatient treatment program. We understand that the early stages of recovery can be crucial and after a residential rehab program, you need to stay focused so that you can maintain recovery. After you finish your residential treatment program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you consider what you want from your new sober life.

Sober living programs help those in recovery build more control over their lives, with a support structure and some guidance. Sober living programs feature:
- Daily check-ins from a house manager
- Developing guidelines to change your behavior in recovery
- Assisting you to build positive relationships with peers who have similar experiences to you
Detox Only Programs
By going through a medical detox you can rid drugs and alcohol from your body safely and put an end to your physical dependence. As your body stabilizes without the substance in your system, you typically experience the symptoms of withdrawal.
This marks the start of the rehabilitation process, and the next steps work to tackle and address the underlining reasons for your addiction, so that the pattern does not happen again. Quite a few substances cause temporary cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have completed a detox programme. Your risk of relapsing can be mitigated as you build on the necessary skills required for long-term success.
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 rehab center and undergo regular treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs usually provide:
- Education around substance misuse
- Counseling and therapy through group settings or one-to-one sessions – The duration of an outpatient program is three months and continue for longer than a year, this is based on your own needs.
Paying for Private Treatment
Private treatment needs to be self-funded or claimed directly through your insurance. Many insurance providers will contribute to some of the costs of rehab, including detox, rehab therapy, and any medicines you may need. The amount covered is down to your provider and the details of your policy agreement. Before taking part in a rehab program, you should speak to your insurance provider to learn how much cover you have.
You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover that is available to you. If you choose not to claim against your policy, you will need to pay for your treatment. Many rehab facilities offer payment plans to clients who cannot afford the cost upfront.
State Funded Programs
If you want to trackle your substance or alcohol problems but cannot pay for private treatment, you may be a candidate for a state-funded rehabilitation program. These programs utilize government funds from state budgets, Medicaid and federal government to provide addiction recovery and may include:

Unfortunately Relapse can occur in up to 60% of individuals, and due to the unpredictability of life post-rehab, having relapse prevention & support is an integral part of your journey in recovery. As you draw closer to the end of your rehab program, we will support you to create an aftercare package that includes services that are helpful to your long-term recovery.
One good benefit of finishing rehab is joining an alumni community program, which allows you to liaise with peers and staff as part of a recovery community. You can come to addiction recovery events, join meetings and receive support and encouragement from others who are also in long-term sobriety. You may also want to return the favor by showing support towards other people.
Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)
Support groups will always be an important component of long-term recovery because social structures encourage lasting sobriety. Addiction support groups such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) facilitate regular support with the help of the 12 steps and regular meetings. During support group meetings, individual members begin to share their experiences and learn from the experiences of others. Many individuals in recovery attend local meetings to support them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools tools to maintain sobriety, allowing them to be accountable for their own journey in recovery.
