Specialized treatment plans are highly effective in treating drug and alcohol addiction. The chosen substance, individual demographics, and personal history collectively shape a personalized treatment program. Substance abuse treatment doesn’t follow a one-size-fits-all approach. Our certified medical and clinical team possesses the expertise and experience to lead our clients toward a successful recovery.

Each patient is assigned a clinical team to assist them throughout the duration of their rehab stay. This team will provide guidance, support, and encouragement to achieve and maintain lasting sobriety.   

What is Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Drug and alcohol rehab teaches individuals how to improve their health and wellbeing. The main focus is to create a life without the dependency of harmful, mind-altering substances.

Rehabilitation takes place in a safe and structured environment. Patients are under the supervision and guidance of expert medical physicians, psychiatrists, therapists, and various rehab clinicians. People suffering from substance use disorder (SUD) or alcohol use disorder (AUD) can receive treatment in our inpatient rehab.

The first step upon admittance is to fully detox from any addictive substances. After taking this vital step, patients can enter residential inpatient care. Patients will begin therapeutic treatment methods to address any co-occurring mental health conditions. These conditions often coexist with substance addiction.

Once residential rehab is complete, individuals will begin outpatient treatment. This includes partial hospitalization programming (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP). Patients will continue to receive therapeutic care during outpatient treatment.

When patients are ready, they have access to various aftercare services. This eases the transition from treatment back into daily life responsibilities and activities. Rehab clinicians guide patients through each step as they learn to live without drugs and alcohol.

Who is a Potential Candidate for Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Rehabilitation is particularly beneficial for individuals who have developed a strong physical and emotional dependence on drugs and alcohol. Substances can cause more than just a physical dependency. Excessive usage can alter brain functions and affect a person’s mental health.

When this occurs, clinicians often diagnose patients with co-occurring mental health disorders. Individuals exhibiting any physical or emotional dependence on substances are candidates for drug and alcohol rehab.

Drug and alcohol addiction can affect anyone: men, women, or young adults. Each of these groups of people have specific life experiences and challenges related to their addiction.

At Hotel California by the Sea, we offer individualized and gender specific treatment plans for all our patients. We strive to meet the unique needs of each patient. Our goal is to provide them the help and guidance they need to live a happier and healthier life.

What Types of Addictions are Treated in Rehab?

Our drug and alcohol rehab facility treats a variety of substance abuse addictions. Some of the most common addictions we treat include: Alcohol, Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, Adderall/Vyvanse, Oxycodone, Fentanyl, and Xanax/Klonopin. Our programs are specialized for those suffering from Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) and Substance Use Disorder (SUD).

We provide treatment programs specifically for patients suffering from trauma related addictions and other co-occurring mental health conditions. Specialized and targeted treatment methods are key to effective and long-lasting recovery treatment.

Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol addiction is one of the most common forms of substance addiction in the United States. Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is diagnosed when an individual can’t stop or control their alcohol intake. AUD causes harm to their physical, social, and emotional well-being.The signs to look for when identifying AUD include:

  • Individual has given up activities they once enjoyed to drink
  • Individual continues to drink despite it making them feel more emotionally unstable
  • Individual begins experiencing an uncontrollable physical urge and dependence to drink

Alcohol rehab centers provide patients with the targeted treatments they need to address issues around AUD. 

Patients will initially detox with the help and guidance of medical professionals. If necessary, we implement withdrawal treatment methods like Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT).

Patients will be under 24/7 care initially and in residential care. They will gradually move to lower levels of treatment, where they address the psychological aspect of their addiction. Our Expert clinicians achieve this through evidence-based cognitive therapies.

Prescription Drug Rehab

Prescription drug abuse is a commonly seen addiction in the United States. This type of abuse can lead individuals to move on to “harder” drugs, such as fentanyl and heroin. Even if a drug is legal, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s safer.

Misusing prescribed medication can lead to addiction. Adderall and Ativan are commonly prescribed prescription drugs that can be highly addictive. They cause addictions that many seek treatment for.

Attending multiple levels of care is crucial for patients in substance and drug rehab programs. Doing so gives us the time to treat the entirety of the patient. We utilize various therapy types tailored to each patient’s needs to achieve holistic wellness. Some of these evidenced proven therapies offered in our rehab program include: CBT, DBT and EMDR therapy.

Trauma Related Substance Addiction 

Addiction and trauma can occur hand in hand. Individuals who experience trauma can have lasting symptoms, such as flashbacks and nightmares. Clinicians may diagnose these patients with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or acute stress disorder (ASD)

Some of these individuals turn to alcohol or drugs to self-medicate and find relief. These co-occurring conditions are not always a catalyst for each other. However, treating them together is essential, as they coincide with each other.

Trauma is a result of a distressing event. Many patients who suffer from trauma can develop an alcohol or substance use disorder. Psychologists designed specialized therapies, like EMDR therapy, specifically to lessen intense emotional and physical reactions to trauma.

EMDR, alongside other cognitive individual and group therapies, help patients understand, treat, and recover from their addictions.

What are the Different Levels of Care in Substance Abuse Treatment?

The services for diagnosing and treating drug and alcohol addiction may vary for each patient at different care levels. Upon entering rehab, our staff conducts a comprehensive medical and psychological assessment. Our patients undergo a meticulous treatment and diagnosis process conducted by our team of expert clinicians.

From here, our clinical team can recommend patients to the following levels of care:

  • Medical detox
  • Inpatient residential
  • Partial hospitalization programs
  • Intensive outpatient programs

Usually patients who seek out substance abuse treatments will work their way through the levels of care. This begins with detox services and ends with an outpatient program.

Intensive Outpatient/Partial Hospitalization

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are the lowest levels of care. These programs focus on cognitive therapeutic treatments, and prepare patients to transition into life outside rehab.

This level of care requires less hours of treatment and is flexible with the schedule of the patient. This enables them to participate in other activities outside rehab, such as their professional career and family responsibilities. Patients can take advantage of the services we offer in this level of care. These include educational and career placement assistance, locating transitional sober housing, and building life skills for after rehab.

Residential Inpatient Services

In this level of care, patients reside in a 24/7 medically managed residential location. This level of monitoring is crucial. Patients are especially vulnerable to cravings and relapse in early sobriety.

Our patients receive daily assessments from medical physicians and clinicians. Throughout much of the day, they participate in various therapeutic sessions. These range from individual therapies, group therapies, and family therapy.

In this stage of care, patients may receive medication-assisted treatments. Our medical doctors adjust these as needed throughout their rehab stay.

Medical Withdrawal Management, Inpatient services, and Detox

Individuals experiencing detox withdrawal symptoms are eligible for medically managed intensive inpatient services. During detox, our team provides around-the-clock care to effectively and safely manage detox and withdrawal symptoms. Patients receive carefully prescribed medications and intensive therapy. This combination effectively manages both physical pain and emotional distress during detox.

Detoxing is the first and most crucial step in rehab. Therefore, it necessitates the utmost care from rehabilitation clinicians.

Personalized Treatment

At Hotel California by the Sea, we prioritize offering the highest quality of care through evidence-based treatment methods. Additionally, we tailor our approach with gender-specific and individualized treatment plans. Every man, woman, and young adult who comes to our program receives targeted treatments to fit their individual needs.

We specialize in treating co-occurring mental health disorders in those who suffer from substance use disorders. People facing mental health challenges like depression, anxiety, or PTSD may use substances as a way to self-medicate. In some cases, excessive use of mind-altering substances can actually cause mental health conditions. This is because substances can alter brain function.

Although substance addiction and mental health conditions can overlap, they don’t always cause each other. However, since they occur alongside each other, it is essential to treat them simultaneously. Our unique treatment methods are effective in helping patients with drug or alcohol addictions. Additionally, these methods are beneficial for those dealing with co-occurring mental health disorders.

Patients enrolled in our inpatient program at our drug and alcohol rehab receive aftercare planning and services. The same aftercare planning and services are also available for those in our outpatient programs. These specialized services help patients as they transition out of rehab care and into daily life situations. 

Services such as career and educational assistance, locating sober transitional housing,  and therapy services are available to help patients. They will leave our care prepared for a life without the dependence of drugs and alcohol.

What are Local Support Groups?

We encourage our patients to actively seek and participate in local substance addiction recovery support groups. Addiction can be extremely isolating. Building a community of like-minded peers increases the likelihood of a successful recovery. These groups can offer encouragement, advice based on personal experiences, and accountability to one another.

Some of these support groups include 12-step programs and SMART programs. Support groups are available for families and friends of individuals struggling with substance addictions. Engaging in a support group increases the chances of sustaining long-term sobriety.
