Integrated treatment is typically the best manner in which to overcome the root causes of alcohol and drug use disorders. Symptoms of addiction should be treated but building new life skills empowers you to face the problems that caused your drug or alcohol addiction.
Private Residential Programs
Residential treatment programs require you to stay at the rehab center and have your treatments on-site. The main benefit is being able to have holistic support and treatment throughout the day.
When you leave your home and move into a treatment facility, you can free yourself from exposure to triggers that influenced your decision to abuse drugs or alcohol.
If you reside in a safe and supportive environment you can protect yourself from relapse and improve the chances of finishing your addiction treatment program. Clients who struggle with dual diagnosis, co-occurring disorders and severe substance dependencies are encouraged to enroll for an inpatient treatment program. We know that the first few months of recovery are usually crucial and after a residential rehab program, you need to stay focused so that you can maintain your sobriety. On completion of your residential treatment program, you will transition towards further independence as you consider your goals for your new life.
Do You Need Help?
We can help you recover.
Sober Living Programs
You can develop the skills required to stay sober by participating in a sober living program, which will guide you through the early stages of recovery. This will be done by:
- A house manager checking in on you every day
- Establishing boundaries for positive behavior in recovery
- Receiving support and companionship from others in recovery who have similar challenges
The flexible approach to outpatient programs means that you do not have to stop work or participating in family commitments, as you can come to the treatment facility and have regular treatments at your own pace.
Outpatient programs usually provide you with:
- Education on abusing drugs
- 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 remain in it for a year if necessary.
Detox Only Programs
By going through a medical detox you can eliminate the substance from your body with safety in mind and put an end to to physical dependence. Symptoms of withdrawal will appear during detox because your body begins to stabilize without the substance it was physically dependent on. With the detoxification phase drawing to an end, you will press forward in your rehab journey, as you begin addressing the main causes for your dependency, helping you cope and 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. During rehabilitative therapy you will work on the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can avoid relapse in the future.
Paying for Private Treatment
The private rehab costs may be claimed back through your insurance policy or funded through your own personal means. The good news is that most health insurance providers will cover at least some of your rehab program, such as detox, rehab therapy, medicines and aftercare support. Your provider’s terms and conditions will determine how much cover you can claim for.
You should identify how much cover you can claim against prior to registering for a rehab program. Check out our Verify Your Insurance page to learn more about the cover you qualify for. If you do not claim against your insurance provider you must pay for your rehab treatment. Many treatment facilities provide payment plans to clients who can then spread the cost over a period of time.
State Funded Programs
If you are suffering with substance or alcohol dependency and have no financial means to enter private rehab, you might be suitable for a state-funded rehabilitation program. Assistance can be provided with funds allocated from Medicaid and state/federal budgets, state-funded programs can subsidize your recovery with:
- Medical detoxes

Remaining active in addiction recovery can feel a challenge once you return to life outside of rehab. When you were in rehab the environment was controlled and you had support from professionals. As you adjust to life after rehab it is very likely that you will find yourself in situations that you still need to learn to address.
