What are the treatment options available in Oxnard?
A consolidated treatment approach offers a successful way to identify & tackle the root causes of drug or alcohol use disorders. Identifying coping strategies to treat the root causes of your substance misuse is just as vital as treating the symptoms of addiction.
Private Residential Programs
A residential treatment program requires you to live at the rehab center and receive all rehab treatment on the property.
Its core benefit is that you can receive integrated treatment and support all through the day. By moving out of your comfort zone and into a rehab facility, you can protect yourself from the those potential triggers that are partly responsible for you developing a substance addiction. You can finish your rehab program and avoid relapse more easily when you remain in a secure environment which is safe and supportive.
Inpatient treatment programs are good for those with intense drug and alcohol dependencies, co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis. Enrolling in a residential treatment program is the most effective way to treat addiction, and sustaining it will require ongoing focus because maintaining recovery is hard during the first year. Once the inpatient program is complete you will want to be independent and your focus will be on what you would like from your new life.

Detox Only Programs
Most clients will need a medical detox to commence drug or alcohol rehab, as it deals with physical dependence on substances by cleansing it from your system. You will undergo withdrawal symptoms as a normal reaction to the absence of substances in your body.
This marks the start of the recovery process, following which you will come to terms with and overcome the root causes of your psychological dependence to avoid a repeat of the same cycle. You should expect to feel some cravings and withdrawal symptoms for a few weeks after your drug or alcohol detox program has completed. Developing important skills can limit your odds of relapse as you become adapted to your new life.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide on private options, you can pay for your treatment yourself or claim directly through your healthcare insurance. Many health insurance companies will contribute to some of the costs of a rehab program, which would include a detox, rehab program and aftercare provisions. The type of cover offered will differ based on the details of your policy and your provider’s terms of agreement.
We recommend that you double check on how much you can claim prior to enrolling for treatment. Visit our Verify Your Insurance page to learn about the cover you qualify for. If you choose not get cover from your insurance provider, you will need to pay directly for your treatment. Some rehab centers may offer payment plans to clients who find the costs unaffordable upfront.

We encourage you to consider supporting other peers within your network if you choose to.

You will benefit from other people’s experiences and share your own unique experiences. Many people in recovery attend local meetings to help them in the early and later stages of addiction recovery. Support groups provide them with the necessary tools tools to stay away from substances, allowing them to be accountable for their own journey in recovery.
