Effective Drug Rehab Programs

The most effective drug rehab programs tend to be the most comprehensive. Everyone has different reasons for turning to alcohol and drugs. Some people start drinking or taking drugs at a young age and don’t develop the social skills or coping skills necessary to deal with life on life’s terms. Others may experience trauma or abuse and they turn to alcohol or drugs in an attempt to numb or escape painful emotions.

Effective drug rehab programs recognize that alcoholism and drug addiction are symptoms of underlying issues. You can set down the drink or the drug but if you don’t deal with the issues, it’s likely you’ll pick it right back up again in order to cover up the emotions that were, for a brief time, exposed. This inability to be comfortable without drugs and alcohol is in part, what drug rehab addresses. This is why it’s difficult for most individuals to get sober and stay sober without professional help.

SouthCoast Recovery offers one of the most effective drug rehab programs in Orange County, California. Our on-staff clinical therapist has 47 years experience treating issues related to alcoholism and drug addiction. In addition, our certified drug and alcohol counselors are accredited by CAADE, the California Association of Alcohol and Drug Educators, a board created to uphold excellence in alcohol and drug studies.

It’s well known that emotional distress leads to physical distress. For this reason, the most effective drug rehab programs also offer healthier ways to manage and release stress. At SouthCoast Recovery, this includes meditation, yoga, acupuncture and detoxification massage. These holistic therapies use natural methods to promote the release of toxins and introduce healthier energy flow through the body. In addition, SouthCoast Recovery promotes innovative workshops on the latest discoveries of mind, body and spirit connection in overcoming alcoholism and drug addiction.

Finally, the most effective drug rehab programs introduce means of support that individuals can implement once they leave drug rehab usually in the form of 12-step support groups that can be found all over the world. The 12-step principles were originally developed by the co-founders of Alcoholics Anonymous and have since been adopted by similar groups. This support is instrumental in helping individuals overcome the temptation to return to drinking and using upon returning to their familiar environments.  SouthCoast Recovery uses a social model approach that uses role models and group therapy as an effective drug rehab support program mechanism.
