    Substance Abuse Treatment In Richmond, California

    As a Richmond resident, you can learn more about your addiction treatment options through the Contra Costa Health Services’ Division of Alcohol and Other Drug Services. To find substance use disorder treatment in Richmond, you can start by:

    • contacting local rehab facilities on the Contra Costa Health Services Treatment Resource Guide
    • calling the Contra Costa County Behavioral Health Access Line
    • finding local treatment facilities using SAMHSA’s Behavioral Health Treatment Locator

    Richmond Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    In Richmond, residents have access to an array of treatment services for alcohol or drug addiction. Licensed clinicians and medical professionals administer a variety of programs, including:

    • screenings and assessments
    • detoxification
    • inpatient and outpatient treatment
    • mental health services
    • medication-assisted treatment
    • continuing care programs

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Before you begin a rehab program, you’ll likely participate in a short-term detoxification program designed to help you safely manage the withdrawal process.

    Medical detox provides professional supervision, support, and if necessary, medications, to help keep you as comfortable as possible throughout withdrawal. 

    Inpatient/Residential Drug Rehab

    Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab takes place in a residential treatment facility where you’ll have 24/7 access to clinicians and your peers. 

    Residential programs include an array of evidence-based treatments, such as dual-diagnosis care and cognitive-behavioral therapy. They typically also include a variety of holistic wellness therapies like meditation and yoga. 

    Outpatient Treatment

    Outpatient treatment programs require you to travel to a rehab facility several days per week for ongoing rehab sessions. 

    If you require comprehensive care but cannot commit to residential rehab, your provider may recommend intensive outpatient treatment or a partial hospitalization program. Both programs help you manage and overcome addiction via a comprehensive array of services. 

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    If you suffer from opioid or alcohol addiction, your provider may recommend a specialized rehab program called medication-assisted treatment (MAT). 

    In a MAT program, you’ll receive a combination of medication and behavioral therapy to help you manage substance cravings and dependence. This program is also designed to help reduce your risk of relapse throughout rehab. 


    After you complete a drug or alcohol rehab program, you can benefit from a variety of aftercare services to help you maintain long-term recovery. 

    Continuing care options vary by facility, but common services include sober-living housing, transitional services, relapse-prevention planning, 12-step participation, group therapy, and more. 

    Using Health Insurance For Addiction Treatment in Richmond, California

    Most recovery centers in Richmond accept some form of health insurance to help patients pay for addiction treatment services. Whether you have a private policy, Medicaid/Medicare, or Medi-Cal, your insurance may provide partial or full coverage for your care. 

    You can learn more about what your health insurance covers by:

    • calling your insurance representative to discuss your health benefits
    • speaking with treatment facilities directly
    • discussing your employer-sponsored health benefits with your HR benefits administrator

    If you don’t have health insurance, you may still be able to access affordable alcohol or drug treatment services via Contra Costa Health Services.
