Addiction Treatment

When it’s time to get addiction treatment, where do you go for help? How do you know which addiction treatment center is right for you?
It’s scary enough to admit you have a problem that you can no longer control, but finding the right place for you can feel overwhelming. Just the idea of sorting through hundreds of available treatment centers can make you feel like throwing your hands up.

It’s okay to feel overwhelmed when you’re considering addiction treatment. The idea of letting go of alcohol and drugs that you’ve come to rely on can be frightening and of course, if you’re going to do it you want to make sure it’s effective. No one wants to feel like alcohol or drug treatment isn’t effective.

What to Expect from Addiction Treatment

There are as many addiction treatment programs as there are addiction treatment centers. The best centers offer comprehensive programs with more than just one form of therapy. For example, some centers offer only holistic treatments, others focus on psychological therapy and still others mainly employ the 12-step method with little else. The best program offers a combination of therapies that are designed to meet the individual’s needs.  SouthCoast Recovery in Dana Point, California, offers a comprehensive addiction treatment program that combines holistic care and clinical therapy within a 12-step social model program. All clients receive individual sessions in acupuncture, massage, drug and alcohol counseling, clinical therapy and marriage & family counseling, if needed. There is also group therapy in workshops and group support at community 12-step meetings. This comprehensive addiction treatment plan ensures that you receive individual attention on a physical, psychological, spiritual and social level. If any other center offers less than this, keep looking.

Addiction Treatment Support

Once you’ve determined that the center offers a comprehensive addiction treatment plan and you like the location, the other factor that will determine your experience is the people. Many professional staff members at addiction treatment centers are in recovery. This lends them a unique perspective to help you. In addition, being offered the chance to attend 12-step meetings in the community allows you to make friends with people outside the center and find a level of support you may not otherwise. You’ll find a support system is invaluable to your recovery and may be the most vital part of your recovery. SouthCoast Recovery encourages community support and participation during addiction treatment. Clients attend area 12-step meetings and are required to get a sponsor during their initial treatment program. We offer 30, 60, 90 day and 6 month residential treatment in south Orange County. Statistics show that the longer you can commit to an addiction treatment program, the better your chances at success in long-term sobriety. For more information, call us today.
