What are the treatment options available in Camarillo?

Integrated rehab treatment is usually the most effective manner in which to deal with the primary sources of drug and alcohol dependencies. Symptoms of addiction should be treated but learning new life skills encourages you to overcome the issues that lead to your drug or alcohol problem.

Private Residential Programs

Stay within the facility where you are receiving addiction treatment, you are in a residential program. Access to 24-hour support and treatment is by far one of the key benefits. When you live at a treatment facility you are safe from many of the triggers in your home environment that could worsen your substance misuse.

When the environment around you is supportive, your chance of relapse is much smaller and you are more likely to finish your treatment. Residential treatment programs are generally more effective if your substance dependency is chronic or complex in nature, or if you struggle with co-occurring disorders or have a dual diagnosis. Sobering up is attainable if you take part in a residential rehab program, however if you wish to maintain it you will have to face up to the challenges that come with the early stages of recovery. After your inpatient addiction treatment, you must consider what you want from your new life, as you work towards becoming more independent.

Do You Need Help?

We can help you recover.

Sober Living Programs

A sober living program will encourage you with necessary skills you need, using guidance and support. You can look forward to:

  1. A house manager who visits you regularly
  2. Advising you on the best way to behave in recovery
  3. Encouraging necessary relationships with others in recovery who recognize your challenges and your experiences

Outpatient Programs

By enrolling in an outpatient program you have a lot more flexibility, as you will visit the rehab center for treatment weekly and continue important work or other commitments.

Outpatient programs offer value through:

  1. Education on abusing substances
  2. Group therapy and individual counseling as vehicles for addiction recovery – You should be enrolled in an outpatient program for a minimum of three months, and may continue the program for longer than a year if required.

Detox Only Programs

Most clients need a medical detox to begin drug or alcohol rehabilitation, as it addresses physical dependencies on substances by cleansing it from your body. As your body stabilizes without the substance in your body, you may experience the symptoms of withdrawal.

Upon completion of the detox phase, you will continue forward in your rehab journey, as you come to terms with the main causes that contributed to your addiction, helping you understand how to avoid it in the future. Many drugs drive symptoms of withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after they have been eliminated from your system. Relapse is less risky if you are equipped with the life skills required to navigate your life in recovery.

Paying for Private Treatment

If you make the decision to continue with private treatment, you can use your health insurance to make a claim or pay the costs directly. Most insurance companies will contribute to at least part of the costs associated with rehab, such as a medically-managed detox, rehab therapy and medication, as well as post-treatment support. The extent of cover provided will depend on the details of your policy and your provider’s terms and conditions. We recommend that you confirm the amount you can claim from your cover before you take part in a rehab program.

You can visit our Verify Your Insurance page for more details on the cover you have access to. If you opt out of cover from your insurance provider, you will be responsible for paying the treatment centre directly. Some rehab centers may provide payment plans for individuals who may find the costs unaffordable upfront.

State Funded Programs

If you have a substance dependence but have limited funds to fund private treatment, you should opt for a state-funded rehab program. By using funds allocated from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, these types of programs can subsidize your recovery including:

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

So that you can take part in a state-funded treatment program you will need to give proof that you reside in a low income household or have little to no healthcare cover:

  1. Medical records around your addiction issues
  2. Evidence of where you live
  3. Proof of your income
  4. Proof that shows you can live legally in the US

Maintaining Addiction Recovery in Camarillo

Maintaining your recovery can be overwhelming when returning to home life after leaving rehab. 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. 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. Relapse can happen if you don’t have the appropriate aftercare or support to guide you into your new future.

The following AA/NA meetings are available in Camarillo:

Aftercare & Alumni Programs

Aftercare programs provide extended support to you when you leave the rehab center. Because no one can predict what could happen in day-to-day life, up to 60% of clients in recovery experience relapse, making relapse prevention & aftercare an invaluable component of addiction recovery. Once you get close to the end of your rehab program, you will discuss the therapies and counseling services most beneficial to your needs long-term, and a relapse prevention program will be designed to help you sustain it.

One good benefit of finishing rehab is the ability to join an alumni community program, where you will be able to liaise with former clients and staff as part of a recovery community. You will enjoy access to team events and receive guidance and encouragement from other people who are also in recovery long-term. In addition, you will have the opportunity to be supportive of others if you choose to.

Support Groups (Fellowship Meetings)

Taking part in support groups is important because fellowship will encourage long-term addiction recovery. With the support of groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, you will follow the principles of the 12 steps and attend regular meetings for life-long support. Attending support group meetings provides you with an opportunity to you to feel empowered by other people and inspire others with your own experiences. Through companionship and committing to the 12-steps, individuals in recovery will feel encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and protect those that love them most.

Support for Families & Children Affected by Addiction

Each person in a family is negatively affected, to different degrees, by addictive behaviors. It’s not just the person with the dependency who is affected, the other members of the family need support too. Participating in a family support group can help you to manage the situation better, and also help you in providing greater support to those struggling with addiction. Examples of Family and Child Support Groups are:

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