Are Drug Rehab Centers Near Me The Best?
Coastline Behavioral Health’s local drug treatment centeris among the best in the country. While Southern California is nationally recognized as the “Mecca” for addiction treatment there are just a few Orange County rehab facilities that excel and are pioneers in the industry. With our focus on experiential therapy, Coastline is blazing a trail for others to follow. We address environmental factors by having the individual stay in a safe, recovery-focused environment. We encourage interaction with others in sobriety via 12 step AA meetings and sponsorship. We also organize activities for our clients outside the treatment walls in sunny California to demonstrate the ways one can immerse in society and have fun without the use of drugs and alcohol. We guide and monitor connection with the outside world only the extent of maintaining safety and reducing the potential of clients being exposed to high-risk situations. Regarding psychological factors impacting addition, we believe it’s necessary to address underlying psychological factors that have consciously and unconsciously maintained addiction or caused prior relapses. Though there are general underlying issues that are common to people in general, such as, some sort of mood dysfunction for example, the type, intensity, and manifestation of psychological factors varies. We take care in maintaining an attitude of curiosity and interest in understanding one’s unique story. Though we usually hear stories riddled with tragedy, trauma, shame, fear, guilt and inadequacies; we listen carefully and look for the survival skills and the strength embedded in the pain and the self-destructive behavior. We pride ourselves on being a strength based program. Though we don’t disregard the client’s story, we also don’t dwell on the past. In addition to listening for underlying patterns, we desire encouraging stories about the ways the clients have coped so far. We applaud the resilience they have shown thus far in surviving and choosing to seek help instead of continuing on a self-sabotaged path.
What To Expect Upon Admission To Our Addiction Treatment Center
On the day of admisison, clients meet with their case manager and therapist. An within 24 hours of admission, they will also meet with our physician where a thorough psychiatric evaluation is conducted. Though medication is not pushed on any client, they are carefully evaluated for medical necessity. If a particular medication is warranted, the pros and cons are carefully explained. Clients also undergo follow-up appointments assessing the efficacy of the medication for symptom relief. If a client struggles with side effects of a medication they are taking or if they suffer from any other physical complaints, we immediately have them meet with our medical personnel. Our clients’ physical and emotional well-being is of primary importance. Especially during early recovery, when clients are withdrawing from drug and alcohol use. In addition to withdrawal symptoms, they also have to deal with physical conditions that develop from lack of self-care and personal neglect. If untreated, the great discomfort from physical conditions and withdrawals can become the basis of increasing cravings and trigger the client to use drugs in order to alleviate physical pain. Therefore, all clients are closely monitored and made comfortable as soon as they arrive.
What is Detox and Why is it Important?
Many people seeking treatment will initially need to go through a period of detox . This is the first step in their recovery program. Chemical dependence causes changes in the brain and detox is the removal of harmful substances from the body. During detox one experiences intense uncomfortable physical and emotional symptoms. Some of these symptoms include chills, body ache, blurred vision, tactile disturbances, irritability, nausea, anger, headache, stomach discomfort, depression, sadness and anxiety. The severity of the detox depends on the substances used and length of abuse. Typically, clients will require detox for alcohol, heroin, opiates and other drugs with an average of one week or up to a month to fully detox from substances. We usually notice withdrawal symptoms in the first 7 to 10 days, after which clients tend to begin to feel better and they start feeling physical and emotional improvements. Once they start to feel better physically and mentally, they able and willing to participate in our day to day programming. After many clients have detoxed from their primary narcotic of choice or alcohol, our treatment also focuses on Identifying and providing psycho-education on Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS). Many recount the severity of their detox and express relief once their withdrawal symptoms have subsided.
We treat a wide variety of substances including but not limited to:
- Club Drugs
- Prescription Medications
“Play is a profound biological process… In higher animals, it fosters empathy and makes possible complex social groups. For us, play ties at the core of creativity and innovation… Humans are the biggest players of all. We are built to play and built through play. When we play, we are engaged in the purest expression of our humanity, the truest expression of our individuality… It’s not just an absence of games or sports. Life without play is life without a book, movies, art, music, jokes or dramatic stories. “ Stuart Brown, M.D.
A focus of our treatment is the Experiential component. As Mr. Brown so eloquently states, a life without play is a mundane dreary life. Therefore, the focus with every individual is to reignite the sense of play, curiosity, and wonder that got lost in the throes of addiction and/or alcoholism. We believe when one feels defeated and powerless, they need to be nurtured back to life. Sometimes taking an empathetic yet ‘playful’ approach adds a needed relief which counters feelings of shame, guilt, fear and loneliness individuals are already feeling walking through our door. This ‘playful’ treatment approach is the foundational piece of our treatment modality. We call it our Experiential Program. Usually, the word “play” conjures up memories of childish games and activities. Though these associations are part of the word “play”, at Coastline we are primarily referring to “Purposeful Play”. It’s the kind of “play” that creates meaning, enhances teamwork and instills ideas of honesty, accountability and problem-solving. This sense of play includes physical team building activities as well. The purpose of play also decreases rage and conflict, de-escalating high-stress situations as people are working towards a common objective goal independent of themselves. Therefore, when people get enough of a distance from their intense emotions and obsessive thoughts, they are more likely to calm down and revisit the situation that triggered them with solutions as well as a more objective perspective. This kind of play also assists with re-creating and imprinting a sense of positive playfulness especially if one’s childhood was traumatic and abusive. Psychoeducation on the disease model of addiction, specific mood disorders, as well as common underlying issues many addicts face. We assist clients in providing a cognitive framework to their experience in the purposeful play.
12 Step Programs for Recovery
We emphasize the 12 step program as a positive social tool to further assist in recovery. We additionally believe that addiction is a “spiritual malady”. We do not push any dogma or entertain any religious agenda. Yet we do believe and follow the tenets of the 12 sSteps which states, that a connection with something greater than oneself is helpful in positively impacting one’s sobriety. Additionally, the psycho-education and experiential programs we offer tie into the 3 basic principles of Alcoholics Anonymous of:
Being of service
In addition to attending meetings, obtaining a sponsor, working the 12 steps, we also use all three principles and create ‘Unity’ via team building activities, ‘Recovery’ via psychoeducation and ‘Being of Service’ by having clients volunteer their time to the needy as a way of giving back to the community.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment At Coastline
Though our primary focus on substance abuse, we also deal with co-occurring disorders. We believe a dual diagnosis can occur concurrently with the primary substance and/or alcohol dependence. Though we do not like to provide concrete labels to clients as an individual that is larger than his or her addiction and mental health diagnosis. However, a preliminary diagnosis is helpful to contextualizing one’s underlying dysfunctional patterns and understanding one’s story as it pertains to their addiction. We consider mental health diagnosis as necessary ‘coping skills’ developed in order to deal with past abuse, trauma, and tragedy. At Coastline, our clients are not a diagnosis, but people dealing with a malady that we seek to understand, explore and channel into more positive activities. We provide treatment for the following mental health diagnosis:
- Anxiety and related disorders
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Bipolar and related Disorders
- Impulse Control and Disruptive Disorders
- Trauma and Stress-Related Disorder
We do not address acute psychosis and related disorders that warrant inpatient intensive psychiatric care. If a client has severe mental issues, they will be transferred to a higher level of care that can better address their needs.
What Is Cross Addiction?
Typically, when a client is abstinent from alcohol or drugs, they can develop cross addiction. Cross addiction is an engagement in an activity that mimics the highs and lows one experienced when they were primarily using drugs or alcohol dependent where their quality of life is severely and negatively impacted. Therefore, cross addiction is a substitution of alcohol or drugs to a variety of other areas that is equally harmful. The common areas of cross addiction are shopping, gambling, sex, work or exercise to name a few. Though working and exercising appear positive, when cross-addicting to these areas, people neglect other positive areas of life such as friends, family, their recovery program and self-care. If untreated, clients may relapse. Identifying, labeling and drawing parallels between the specific cross addiction with their vice becomes necessary. Throughout their course of treatment clients are also gradually provided with specific skills to recognize their cross addiction that furthers their recovery.
