What is Addiction Rehab (Rehabilitation)?

Private Residential Programs near La Mirada

When you live within the center where you are receiving therapy, you are part of a residential treatment program. Having Access to 24/7 support and addiction treatment is obviously one of the core benefits. There is notable value in removing yourself from the home environment and becoming fully engaged in the rehab program, because you are not vulnerable to the triggers and stressors that may cause you to use substances.

By remaining in a safe and supportive environment, you have a better chance of finishing your treatment program while reducing the chance of relapse and its associated risks.

When you have an intense substance dependency, or you suffer from a dual diagnosis or co-occurring illness, a residential treatment program is advised. You can begin the first steps to recovery by taking part in an inpatient program, but to overcome the difficulty of the early stages of addiction recovery, you must remain committed to the program. After you finish your residential rehab program your priority will be on transitioning to greater independence as you consider what you want from your life free from drugs or alcohol.

Outpatient programs teach you:

  1. Education about your drug use
  2. Talking therapy and counseling through group sessions and individual sessions with a skilled addiction therapist. – Outpatient programs typically run from a few months to over a year, and your personal needs will determine the length of treatment.

Taking part in a drug or alcohol detoxification program is a vital stage in rehab as it tackles your physical dependency by eliminating substances from your system. Withdrawal symptoms are the body’s main response to detox, as it gets used to functioning without substances.

Many drugs cause protracted cravings and withdrawal symptoms after you have been through the detox phase. During rehabilitative therapy you will learn the coping skills for long-term recovery, so that you can reduce the risk of relapse in the future.
