Drug Treatment Programs: What to Expect from California Behavioral Health

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”

– Carl Bard

Why Do Drug Addicts Need Drug Rehab Programs?

Primarily, rehab programs are there to support you through the addiction recovery process. Drug addicts need special care to help them come out of their struggle. Lots of scary and dangerous things happen to your body when you stop taking drugs. With our care and support, you’re put in a safe environment where all the side-effects and withdrawal symptoms can be managed. 

What Type of Drug Rehab Programs Do We Offer?

As you would expect, we offer a range of rehab programs that are both similar and different. They all have the same goal, but they go about things in slightly differing ways. Here’s what’s on offer at our holistic rehab center

  • Residential rehab: With our inpatient drug rehab, we put you in private accommodation, meaning you get 24/7 care whenever you need it.  This treatment will provide you with a structure to your recovery, and we can also help with other medical conditions that you suffer from alongside the addiction
  • Addiction therapy: During your inpatient drug rehab, our master-level therapist will utilize a variety of treatment modalities to maximize the chance of successful recovery
  • Drug and alcohol detox: Our drug rehab programs are designed to safely detox all clients in a social model setting supervised by a qualified medical professional.
  • Inpatient drug rehab: This involves coming to our facility and receiving your treatment. It provides you with a structure to your recovery, and we can also help with other medical conditions that you suffer from alongside the addiction. 
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment: Often used to treat alcohol or opioid abuse by using medication to calm withdrawal symptoms and kick the habit for good. 

How Do Our Rehab Programs Differ from Others?

All of our addiction treatment programs are created with the patient in mind. Unlike many other facilities, we take a non-12 step rehab approach. This means we don’t follow the typical 12-step approach, opting for a far more flexible and diverse treatment. We offer a dual diagnostic treatment and holistic rehab, which means we look at more than just the addiction itself. We look at other contributing factors that cause addiction, allowing us to get to the root of your addictive behavior. 

This is what makes our drug rehab programs better than the rest. With the non-12-step rehab, you aren’t forced to follow a path that might not work for you. We believe this is what holds back a lot of addiction treatment programs; they’re not flexible enough!

What to Expect During Your Treatment

It varies depending on the specific program you’re on, but they all follow of dual diagnostic treatment approach. In essence, we assess your symptoms, speak to you about your addiction, and diagnose the cause – along with any contributing factors. 

You’re also likely to undergo a drug detox, which is a crucial aspect of addiction recovery. With a drug detox, your body is cleansed of the harmful toxins left by the substance you’ve been abusing. This is often the hardest part of drug addiction treatment as you experience extreme withdrawal symptoms. But, our team of medical experts is always on-hand to help you cope with them. 

You will also attend therapy sessions and speak to a therapist about your addiction and the subsequent problems it causes. Group sessions are sometimes offered too, where you can share experiences with other individuals. 

How Long Will the Rehab Programs Last?

It varies from patient to patient. A residential program can last up to 90 days, but others may only last for a week or two. It all depends on the specific program, the individual in question, and how committed you are to the treatment. Some people respond really well, and it might last for two weeks, while others have a hard time and can be in rehab for up to a year. 

What to Expect After the Treatment?

California Behavioral Health believes in supporting recovering addicts after their treatment has finished. You’ll feel like a new person when you’re done with rehab, but the journey is still ongoing. We offer various aftercare services to help you stay clean and keep any dark thoughts at bay. 

You can come to the facility whenever you feel as though you need help and guidance. Our team will always be there for you, ensuring that addiction doesn’t come back again.

  • The kitchen staff not only makes delicious food, but they take care of my dietary requests also. They go above and beyond to not only provide what I need but also what I want. The nursing staff here always know where I’m at and how I’m feeling. It’s not just a job for them. They show me that they care about my recovery. The doctors here care about my health not just for recovery, but also for when I leave here. The therapists here have been a major part of one of the biggest and best changes I’ve ever made in my life, for my life. My experience here has not only helped me to recover but also provided me with tools to remain so when I return home. Thank you for helping me find myself and for helping me to realize that I like myself and am excited about being myself, strong and with no slavery to addiction. This is an amazing place! I don’t know how you found such awesome employees. I never once heard a negative word come out of their mouths. Always happy and outgoing, even when some of the guests were being d-bags. This place is awesome, great staff, good activities and the food is so good.

  • Let me start by saying that this place has saved my life as I had been struggling with alcoholism since getting out of college. I had tried numerous 12 step programs and always experienced somewhere that I always struggled to relate with. Once I arrived at California Behavioral Health, they welcomed me with open arms.

  • I personally feel I was given the best treatment possible not just for my alcoholism but my underlying concerns as well. I am very grateful for the chance I was given The atmosphere has always been positive and up lifting and for the most part the participants have kept me laughing to the point my jaws hurt. I’m grateful to be a part of a great group of people and as my time here will expire soon I will carry all of you in my thoughts and ❤️. From the first day I got here I felt comfortable and safe.
