Sometimes, traveling a little farther from home for treatment can aid in your recovery. Putting some physical distance between the people, places, and situations that trigger your substance use can allow you to fully focus on your recovery.

What is the Cost of Rehab in Fontana, California?

The cost of addiction treatment varies depending on several factors, including:

  • The level of care you receive. It’s best to meet with your primary care physician, mental healthcare provider, or addiction care specialist, who can perform a thorough assessment and determine the best level of care to meet your specific needs and situation. An inpatient program with 24/7 care and room and board generally costs more than an outpatient program, where you continue to live at home while undergoing treatment.
  • The duration of your treatment. Your treatment plan may include multiple levels of care as you progress through your recovery. Typically, the more time you spend in treatment, the better the outcome, and the higher the overall cost.
  • The type of facility you choose. Treatment centers with lots of amenities—like pools, fitness centers, private rooms, alternative therapies, and recreational programs—tend to be more expensive than facilities providing care without the extras.
  • The amount your insurance pays. Your insurance may cover all or most of the cost of treatment. If you’re using insurance to pay, call the number on the back of your card to understand the details of your coverage for substance use disorder as well as your out-of-pocket costs.

Types of Addiction Treatment Offered in Fontana, California

For many, treatment begins with medically managed detox, which allows the body to rid itself of the substance safely. Under the supervision of healthcare professionals, withdrawal symptoms can be managed so you remain as comfortable as possible. Within 25 miles of Fontana, there are 30 facilities that provide detoxification services.

Detox is typically not enough to sustain recovery. Instead it’s often the first step in a more comprehensive treatment plan that takes place within one of the different levels of care.6 These levels of care include:6

  • Inpatient care. In an inpatient program, services are typically delivered in a hospital setting, though many treatment centers use inpatient and residential care interchangeably. Inpatient care requires you to live at the facility for the duration of treatment, which generally includes individual and group counseling, behavioral therapies, psychoeducation, and medication (if necessary).
  • Residential treatment. Residential treatment services take place in a structured, residential setting that is staffed 24 hours a day. Like inpatient programs, you live at the treatment center for the duration of care, which looks identical to inpatient programs.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs): PHPs deliver the same structured services that are provided in the inpatient and residential programs, but you return home or to a sober living environment at the end of each day. The amount of hours per day and days per week spent in treatment vary from program to program but generally require 6 to 8 hours a day, 3 to 7 days per week. Services look similar to those offered in inpatient and residential settings.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs): IOPs are alternatives to inpatient and residential programs. They are designed, like other outpatient programs, to establish psychosocial supports and facilitate relapse prevention and coping strategies. Treatment takes place at the treatment center a minimum of 9 hours per week in three, 3-hour sessions and then you return home or to a sober living environment at the end of each day.
  • Outpatient programs: Standard outpatient programs deliver services in a variety of settings such as medical offices or clinics. Like PHPs and IOPs, you return home or to a sober living environment at the end of each day; however, these traditional outpatient programs are typically less intense and require less time in treatment.

Of the treatment facilities in and around Fontana, 5 provide inpatient care, 36 offer residential treatment, 14 have partial hospitalization programs, 24 offer intensive outpatient programs, and 38 provide outpatient care.4

How to Find Rehab Centers in Fontana, California

There are many factors to consider when looking for a substance use treatment facility for yourself or a loved one.7 If you have insurance, your first step may be to contact your provider to find out if there is an in-network or preferred provider near you.7 If you do not have insurance, you may be able to access treatment through a state-funded facility or using another payment option mentioned above.7

Obviously, you need to ensure that the facility you choose offers the level of care you need, as determined by your primary care physician, mental healthcare provider, or other addiction treatment specialist. Additionally, if you have co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders, you want to ensure that the facility treats both disorders simultaneously. Beyond that, you should inquire about the following before making a decision:4,7

  • Accreditation: Find a treatment facility that is licensed or certified by the state to ensure that it meets the basic requirements for quality and safety. You may want to look for an accredited facility, which means that it meets the standards of care set by national compliance organizations.
  • Evidence-based treatment: The treatment center needs to provide effective, science-backed treatments for substance use disorders. This may include medication management, cognitive-behavioral therapy, drug and alcohol counseling, peer support, education, and more. Quality facilities generally offer multiple interventions. For instance, of the 69 treatment facilities in or around Fontana, 66 utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy, 68 employ motivational interviewing, and 49 use 12-Step facilitation, among other modalities.
  • Medication: If the facility offers medication treatment for substance use disorder, ensure that the medication is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the recovery from alcohol and opioid use disorders.
  • Families: Encouraging family members play a pivotal role in the recovery process. Ensure that your family can be part of the treatment process so they can effectively provide support.
  • Continuing care: Recovery from a substance use disorder is a long-term process. Most facilities—63 within 25 miles of Fontana, in fact—offer ongoing services in the form of continued counseling, recovery coaching, assistance in finding sober housing, employment help, and mutual-help groups.
