Drug Addiction Treatment

Each person has different basic requirements when they find themselves faced with the devastatingly negative effects of drug addiction and drug abuse. Addiction is not a life sentence. However, those faced with it need much love, care, and understanding to beat it. That’s where we at United Recovery California come in.

In this article, we discuss the effects of drug addiction (also called substance use disorder), and how we can help treat it and get you, or your loved one suffering from substance abuse, back to a healthy life.

Getting Help for Drug Addiction

For many people battling with drug addiction, the hardest step toward recovery is the very first one: realizing that they have a problem and opting to make a change. If you feel unsure about whether you are ready to begin your recovery process, look for resources and talk to everyone you trust for advice. Being afraid of change is normal, but sticking to harmful habits is not helping you.

If you are addicted to a prescription drug, you could be worried about how you would find a different way to treat your medical condition. This will be resolved when you discuss your current medical situation with your addiction treatment assessor who will work with your GP to find the best solution.

Issues pertaining to drug addiction sometimes include domestic violence, criminal activities, and homelessness. These can be resolved via the secondary stage of treatment – therapy and counseling. With the right attitude towards yourself and life, you will feel more able to find alternatives that are less harmful.

Should you suspect that you or someone you know may have a drug addiction, pose the following questions:

  • Have you observed an ongoing need to use a certain prescription medications, illicit substances or alcohol?

  • Are there any problems that surface because of drug use?

  • Are there constant warnings given about how much you, or the person you know, are using substances.

  • If you have answered yes to any or all of them, then help may be required and you might consider entering drug rehab.

How we Treat Drug Addiction & Abuse

Recovering from substance use disorder has proven to be a massive undertaking for those who are working towards a better future. This type of physical addiction often hurdles them from going after their dreams, negatively impacting their health while sending them spiraling towards trouble with the law.

Fortunately, as soon as a person seeks help through private addiction treatment programs, they are greeted with support during the entire treatment process. The initial step towards substance abuse recovery is almost always a drug detoxification, or detox for short.

Sometimes, medication is needed during the process of detoxification. We may use them to calm down withdrawal symptoms, use them as substitutes for opiates or as relievers for mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression, if we find them as co-occurring during the process of detoxification.

Who provides the medications ?

The majority of our professional staff experienced drug abuse in the past, they know personally how it’s like to fight an addiction and to suffer from the withdrawal symptoms.

They tailor the substance abuse treatment programs to your needs to give you the best recovery chances in your drug rehab.

The treatment providers are trained in prescribing detox medication personalized to your needs. To treat addiction, our medical doctor (a specific treatment provider) will analyze your drug abuse problems to create tailor-made treatment programs

Once the detoxification period has been successfully completed, we focus on other treatments, therapy and counseling to help maintaining sobriety. At this stage, finding the underlying causes and helping overcome any previous trauma are essential. Afterwards, we focus on regaining control over life, work and relationships via progressive therapies and behavioral approaches.

Our rehabilitation treatment does not need to be finished when a recovering person has successfully completed and leaves our program. United Recovery CA provides aftercare services such as group counseling, in an effort to increase the chances of maintaining sobriety after rehabilitation.

Residential Drug Treatment Programs

We provide an extensive and interactive rehabilitation program for a variety of addictive substance abuse. In the case of rehabilitation from drug addiction, our program works in a very sophisticated way.

Detox Program

Detoxification is the initial approach to obtaining sobriety for people who struggling with any kind of substance addiction. When a person who has developed an addiction to drugs stops taking their drug, or drugs, of choice, their body will begin manifesting withdrawal symptoms. These vary according to the length of one’s addiction, the doses taken before cessation, the type of drugs used (benzodiazepines, amphetamines etc.) and more.

Our detox program assists in helping the body rid itself of the addictive drug as well as providing the addicted person with support for the length of the process. Medical staff are on-site during the detoxification, and medication is constantly monitored.

Sometimes, medical detoxification may not be needed. This will be discussed during the initial assessment.

Our detox program

Residential Program

As soon as the detoxification process has been completed, we begin with our rehabilitation program. This entails a wide variety of therapies and treatments to assist in suppressing drug use urges and avoiding triggers. In this program, we focus on coping skills which can be applied to everyday situations subsequent to leaving rehab.

This rehabilitation program takes place in either an inpatient or outpatient setting. This is factored by the severity of the drug use and what a doctor has recommended.

Our therapies are varied, so that you, or your loved one, can receive tailored service which can work well for their personal situation. We do not believe in the method of one-size-fits-all. We look at each client and assess their necessities to help them recover from substance abuse.

How Long Does Rehab Take?

On average, persons recovering from a drug addiction stay in rehabilitation between 30 to 90 days. Treatment for your substance use disorder that involves detox, therapy, and supportive care is successful for some people, however, treating drug use addiction tends to be a challenging process that may last years. While it may appear desirable to complete the rehabilitation process as swiftly as possible, it has been proven many times that extended stays in rehab lead to a decrease in relapses.

You may consider our extended programs including residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and aftercare programs, sober living, and continued counseling. Having prolonged access to help is essential for those who will go out of rehab to re-join a stressful or unsupportive environment.

We encourage focusing on what is most vital – getting the rehabilitation needed to overcome underlying causes and eventual psychological harm. Addiction is a condition that is highly dependent on our wellbeing, so everything starts and finishes with caring for our health, physical and mental.

Why Choose Inpatient Treatment

Drug addiction (or substance use disorder) is a complex condition that affects not only our bodies but also our minds and everyday life. Our relationships and work can also be affected by the negative sides of drug addiction. Whether it’s a prescription drug abuse or the use of illicit substances, when our life becomes guided by the habit, we need addiction treatment to help us find better coping mechanisms.

This is how rehab helps fight drug addiction – through innovative and proven traditional therapies and methods, our experts at addiction treatment and rehabilitation will help you and your family find better ways to cope with stressors, triggers, and past trauma.

Rediscovering yourself through rehab

When you begin your recovery in our inpatient facility, you will be able to regain control over your life and take the reins from substance use. With this, you will rediscover different aspects of your self – artistic, creative, productive that were hindered by your drug abuse..

Long-term treatment leads to better outcomes

According to our experience, the longer you focus on your substance use disorder recovery, the better the outcomes will be. This is because in most cases we will need to counter years of physical and mental harm which your body has suffered.

Long-Term Recovery from Drug Addiction

According to the National Institute on Drug Use, refraining from drug use is just one factor in a long and multiplexed recovery process.

Because addiction from substance use can affect so many aspects of a person’s life, prolonged treatment should look into the needs of the whole person to be successful. Counselors may select from a list of services that cater to the precise medical, mental, social, occupational, family, and legal needs of their patients to help in their recovery process. Furthermore, when treating prescription drug addiction from pain relievers or drugs such as heroin or fentanyl, medication is often the first line of treatment, this is infused with some form of behavioral therapy or counseling on an ongoing basis. Even after inpatient rehabilitation has ended.

Relapse is often part of recovery. However, for some drugs, it can be very dangerous to go back to your substance, as your body is no longer as tolerant to its effects. Unfortunately, people suffering from an addiction can easily overdose as their bodies have no longer adapted to their previous level of drug exposure. It is, therefore, very important that continued therapy is implemented to avoid the urge of going back to the substance in cases of stress or emotional disbalance.

United Recovery has a track record of not only being able to treat those with drug addiction but also helping them maintain sobriety and abstinence to guard against relapses and overdosing.
