What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?
When we talk about addiction ‘rehab’, we mean the combination of medical and therapeutic treatments used to tackle dependencies on prescription drugs, recreational and illegal substances. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to rehab because it should be unique to your lifestyle and may include detoxification, inpatient and outpatient care, and extended relapse prevention programs.

Private Residential Programs
When you live within the facility where you are receiving your treatments, you are taking part in a residential addiction treatment program.
Having access to daily support and treatment is obviously one of the major benefits. When you reside at a rehab center you are free from most of the stressors in your home environment that may worsen your substance dependency. If you stay in a controlled environment that is designed to be supportive, you have a higher chance of finishing your rehab program while avoiding relapse and its potential dangers.
If you struggle with an intense substance dependency, or you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, a residential addiction treatment program will be recommended. You can begin the initial steps to a sober life by taking part in a residential program, however to get through the difficulty of the early stages of addiction recovery, you have to commit to a new life of sobriety. When the residential program is complete you will want to be more independent and your focus will be on the things you want to do with your new life.

Sober Living Programs
Sober living programs are structured with the necessary guidance to help people in recovery get what they need from their new life without substance dependence. They assist you through:
- Regular support from the house manager
- Developing guidelines to help your behavior in recovery
- Assisting you to build important relationships with peers who have similar challenges to you
Outpatient programs are less intensive to adjust to so that you can continue your work and family obligations and still undergo treatments, by attending the rehab center regularly.
Outpatient programs help you with:
- Education around substance abuse
- Counseling services and therapy with the use of group support or one-to-one sessions – The required duration of an outpatient program is 3/4 months and it could be extended to longer than a year, this will depend on your personal requirements.
Detox Only Programs
A detox program is the first step in drug or alcohol rehab and is done to eliminate your physical dependency on a drug by removing it from your system. You typically develop withdrawal symptoms as a natural reaction to the absence of the substance in your body.
Once you overcome the most challenging aspects of physical withdrawal you will continue on your rehab journey, working on the underlying causes of psychological dependency to break the cycle of drug addiction or alcoholism. Many drugs result in withdrawal and cravings for a period of time after they have been cleared from your system. Rehab teaches you life-changing skills to take into your new life so that you protect yourself from relapse.
Paying for Private Treatment
If you decide to continue with private rehab, you will need to pay with your own funds or start a claim via your healthcare policy. In most instances, insurance providers will cover the costs of treatment, to some extent, including a medically assisted detox, rehab program, and aftercare programs. The total amount you will be able to claim can be identified by your policy rules and your provider. It is recommended that you inquire about your cover prior to enrolling in a rehab program.
By visiting our Verify Your Insurance page, you can learn what cover you are entitled to. If you opt out of making a claim through your insurance provider, the balance of your treatment programme will need to be covered directly. Some treatment centers may offer a payment plan to individuals who can’t afford to pay the full amount.
State Funded Programs
State-funded rehabilitation programs are designed for those who are battling with alcohol addiction or substance dependencies and who may not have the means to fund private rehab.
