Drug Abuse Rehabilitation

Drug Abuse Rehabilitation

In recent years, drug abuse rehabilitation has gotten a lot of attention. This is partly due in fact to the number of high-profiled celebrities that have publicly admitted problems with drugs and alcohol and sought professional help. Not only has this brought attention to drug abuse rehabilitation but it has also helped to ease the stigma associated with the need for drug and alcohol treatment.

Drug abuse rehabilitation is generally the last stop in a multitude of attempts to control or stop alcohol or drug intake. By the time someone seeks help for alcohol or drug abuse, it’s likely they are experiencing a multitude of problems. Professional help is generally required because of the nature of addiction. Most people attribute the inability to stop drinking or using drugs with lack of will-power, so they try harder to control it. Addiction cannot be controlled – it has to be interrupted.

SouthCoast Recovery’s drug abuse rehabilitation center in Dana Point, California, offers eight residential homes in south Orange County, most within walking distance of the beach. Clients gather at our central holistic Wellness Center for individual sessions in clinical therapy, drug and alcohol counseling, acupuncture and massage. Group therapy and educational modules are presented on the disease model of addiction, combined with the latest discoveries in mind/body/spirit connection. Professional staff members provide a 24-hour safe and supportive environment so clients can work through underlying emotional issues that may be contributing to the need for drug abuse rehabilitation.

Clinical therapy is an important component in drug abuse rehabilitation. This is the process of uncovering and releasing traumatic events, memories and patterns that may be contributing to the need for alcohol or drug abuse. Once clients are able to release these repressed and often painful memories, the need to repress them with drugs and alcohol is also often removed. Psychological treatment also addresses the need to develop new behavior patterns to replace old ones so individuals have new, healthier means with which to handle life events without returning to drugs and alcohol.

At SouthCoast Recovery, we offer professional drug abuse rehabilitation to help you or your loved one overcome alcoholism and drug addiction. Our drug and alcohol treatment program offers personalized attention for 30, 60, 90 days and 6 month residential treatment in the harbor town of Dana Point, California.
