What are the treatment options available in Tuolumne?

Understanding and healing the primary causes behind your substance or alcohol use disorder can be achieved through an holistic treatment model. Whilst treating the causes of dependence is important, you also need to build coping mechanisms to address the issues that lead to your substance dependency.

Private Residential Programs

When staying on the same property that you are undergoing your addiction treatments in, you are part of a residential treatment program. Access to round-the-clock support and treatment is by far one of the major benefits. If you stay at a treatment center you will be free from many of the stressors in your home environment that could influence your substance use.

You can complete your rehab program and avoid relapse more easily if you remain in a controlled facility which is protective and supportive. Inpatient addiction treatment programs are useful for those with intense drug or alcohol dependencies, co-occurring illnesses or dual diagnosis. Enrolling in a residential rehab program is the most effective way to get sober, and sustaining it demands continued focus because addiction recovery is challenging during the first few months. When you have finished your residential treatment programe you must focus on becoming more independent and set life goals and new challenges.

Do You Need Help?

Our addiction advisers are here to help you.

Sober Living Programs

Sober living programs are structured with the necessary guidance to help recovering individuals get what they need from their new life without substance dependence. They support you through:

  1. Regular support from the house manager
  2. Creating guidelines to help your behavior in recovery
  3. Helping you to build life-changing relationships with peers who will share similar difficulties to you

Outpatient Programs

The flexible approach to outpatient 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 undergo regular treatments in your own time.

Outpatient programs offer support through:

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

Detox Only Programs

The process of drug and alcohol detox from your body is the first stage of rehabilitation, as it rids the body of the substance and puts an end to your physical dependence. As your body gets used to functioning without the substance in your body, you may experience withdrawal symptoms.

This process of detoxification marks the beginning of your rehab journey, following which you will start to overcome the root causes of your addiction to avoid a repeat of those same cycles. Many substances cause withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after they have been removed from your body. Relapse is less risky when you are equipped with the vital skills required to navigate your new life in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you want to pursue private rehab, you can self-fund or claim directly through your healthcare policy. Many health insurance providers will cover some of the costs of rehab, which includes medical detox, the rehab program, medical supplies and aftercare programs. The total amount you will be able to claim is based on your policy rules and your provider.

You should check to see the amount you can claim on your policy before you enroll in a treatment plan. Our Verify Your Insurance page will help you to determine the amount of cover you are eligible for.

If you decide not to claim against your policy, you will need to pay for your treatment. Some treatment centres allow you to negotiate a payment plan if the total cost is a barrier to you receiving treatment.

State Funded Programs

If you have fallen victim to substance dependence but have limited funds to fund private treatment, you can look for a state-funded rehab program. With the use of federal and state budget funding, these programs can help your recovery with:

  1. An alcohol detox or drug detox that is medically-managed
  2. Addiction therapy including relapse prevention programs

In order to enroll in a state-funded rehabilitation program you will need to provide proof that you live in a low income household or that you do not have health insurance:

  1. Proof of living arrangements
  2. Proof of income
  3. Details about your addiction from your medical history and information about your substance misuse
  4. Proof that you have the legal right to live and remain in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Tuolumne

Maintaining recovery can be difficult once you leave a rehab center. The rehab environment was controlled and safe, and you were given professional support. When you depart rehab there will be some new challenges that you will have to learn to cope with. If you had a severe dependency or if you leave rehab without the appropriate social support, you will find long term recovery to be more challenging. Guidance and aftercare support is integral in the early stages of recovery to help prevent relapse.

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs extend your rehab program once you return to your daily life. Relapse can occur in up to 60% of cases, and due to the natural events of life outside of rehab, having extended support is an important part of your recovery journey. As you get near to completing your treatment program, we will work you to establish an aftercare program that includes services that are vital to your long-term recovery.

Alumni programs are an extra benefit to completing rehab and allows you community access to former clients and staff members. Through this network you will attend social events and receive support and advice from other ex-clients who are in recovery as well. We encourage you to consider supporting other individuals who are part of your network if you want to.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Support groups remain a great resource because they integrate companionship into addiction recovery. By joining a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will follow the 12-step model and attend regular meetings for ongoing support. When you go to support group meetings, you will be able to share your experiences and feel empowered by other individuals who are also in recovery. Many individuals in recovery attend nearby meetings to support them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with the important tools to stay sober, and allow them to be accountable for their actions to themselves and others.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Addiction causes pain for those living in the household to various degrees. Although the individual battling with dependence certainly needs all the help they can get, other family members also need counseling. Through a family support group, families will manage stress more effectively and provide better to their loved ones in recovery. Receive help and support for the Family with the below support groups:

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