Orange County Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol is one of the most commonly used intoxicating substances on earth, except for, perhaps, coffee. Unlike coffee, Alcohol is also incredibly addictive, despite the fact that it’s normalized, encouraged in the form of craft beer and spirits, and even judged if you don’t drink. Some studies suggest that 84% of Americans drink at least occasionally. But, according to the National Survey on Drug Abuse and Health, 14.5 million Americans have an alcohol use disorder. 5.2 percent of the American population is addicted to alcohol. 

Alcohol use disorders damage you, your relationships, your work prospects, your family, and everyone around you. And, while no one chooses to be an addict, you can always choose to get treatment and recover. Only about 1.1 million, or about 7.2% of all persons with alcohol use disorder, get treatment on a given year, but treatment works. In one study, 60% of individuals who attended therapy and follow-up therapy with support groups were still clean and sober after 16 years.

Attending rehab can help you to get your life back. And, if you need help, the medical team at Compassion Recovery Center is here to help. Our staff deliver a combination of medical expertise, Masters-level education, and passion for helping people to become the best versions of themselves. Our alcohol rehab in Orange County offers inpatient and outpatient care, a detox center, and, of course, the beautiful, relaxing scenery of California’s west coast.

If you or a loved one are struggling, our Orange County alcohol rehab center is here, and we are ready to help.

What is Alcohol Rehab?

Alcohol rehab is a multi-part treatment designed to help you move past chemical addiction, identify the underlying causes behind addiction, and build the skills and behaviors needed to live a good life without alcohol. At Compassion Recovery, we approach every recovering person with care. You, your addiction, and your problems are unique. That’s why we build custom programs using EMDR, CBT, and REBT behavioral therapies. We back these with counseling, group therapy, and a host of supportive therapies to help you relax, destress, and get in control of your own emotional well-being. And, of course, treatment is delivered by our licensed and trained staff to ensure you get the best possible treatment.

We Can Help You Overcome Your Addiction

The Compassion Recovery Alcohol Rehab Center

Compassion Recovery Center is primarily an outpatient alcohol rehab center. However, we do offer an Orange County detox center. We also offer partial hospitalization in our Laguna Hills facility. In some cases, you may also prefer a full, residential treatment. Every option has benefits, so you may want to discuss your needs with our counselors when calling for a consultation.

Our outpatient alcohol rehab is designed to offer full care in our sunny rehab center in Laguna Hills. In most cases, you’ll attend up to 6 hours of treatment per day, focusing on EMDR, REBT, and CBT therapies. You’ll attend group therapy and counseling with your peers. You can bring family for family therapy. And, you’ll have the freedom to spend your days at work, school, or with family depending on your life and responsibilities. This is a Monday to Friday treatment.

Intensive Outpatient

Intensive Outpatient or IOP is an alcohol rehab program designed to allow you more time to handle work and responsibilities. For this reason, IOP is better for those who can spend more time going to rehab over time or those who have a lighter addiction. In many cases, we may also recommend IOP as a follow up treatment for someone who has attended rehab and relapsed in the past.

Residential Care

Residential care means that you stay at our facilities in Laguna Beach. This means you benefit from more medical monitoring, more contact with your peers, and more personalization. The primary difference is that you step away from stress and life and focus fully on your recovery. This option is ideal for anyone with a significant alcohol use disorder, someone who has failed recovery multiple times, or anyone looking at Orange Beach as an out of state treatment option.

No matter which method of treatment you choose, you’ll benefit from:

  • Master’s level therapists
  • Trained and licensed medical staff
  • Multiple treatment options tailored to your needs
  • Family therapy
  • Activities like hiking and kayaking with your peers
  • Skills training to help you improve your life

What is Alcohol Rehab Like at Compassion Recovery Center?

Compassion Recovery Centers takes a personalized approach to treatment. That means every person who steps through our doors will receive a unique program, designed around their specific needs, mental health, and physical health. Our approach to personalization means our program is perfect for anyone with a dual diagnosis, with a complicated history of seeking out treatment, or with a severe addiction.

However, in most cases, when you enter our Orange County detox, your path to recovery will look something like this:

Intake begins with your consultation and ends with an interview and physical examination. This involves us checking up on your mental and physical health history, assessing your current mental state, and using that information to build a program for you. That program will be tweaked as you move through treatment – but it all starts with intake.

Our alcohol detox center is in Laguna Beach, where you can relax and recover from alcohol use disorder at our own pace. In some cases, we may recommend a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program. In others, we’ll offer medical monitoring, counseling, and support as you move through on your own. In most cases, your detox period should be over in about 2 weeks, after which you can move on to full treatment:

  • Withdrawal symptoms start at 2-12 hours after your final drink. You’ll likely feel like you have a bad cold with sweats, shaking, and headaches. Most people are also nauseous, and you’ll probably feel anxious, which might be made worse by moving into a recovery center.
  • Symptoms worsen over the first 48 hours.
  • Symptoms level out after about 4-5 days and then begin to recede. Here, you’re at highest risk for seizures and complications, so monitoring is important.
  • A small percentage of patients are at risk for delirium tremens. However, we monitor your health and progression to try to prevent serious side effects.

We offer psychotherapy, namely behavioral therapy, from master’s level therapists. Our treatment options include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy. These will help you to process emotions, recognize underlying problems behind addictions, and build new habits, thoughts, and behaviors that will help you move through life without alcohol.

  • CBTCognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most recommended behavioral treatment for substance use disorders. CBT approaches addiction from a behavioral angle. It works to help you identify underlying behaviors and patterns (thoughts, actions, etc.) that reinforce, enable, and cause addiction so that you can rework and replace those behaviors.
  • REBT– Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy approaches negative beliefs and thought patterns as well as irrational beliefs to help you replace them. This therapy is valuable in motivational therapy, because it can help you to identify and replace thought patterns and behaviors preventing you from moving forward with treatment.
  • EMDR – Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a behavioral therapy that approaches trauma and behaviors locked in trauma by using exposure therapy.

Compassion Recovery Centers offers licensed counselors who work with you in both one-on-one and in groups. Counseling helps you to work through addiction, cravings, relationships, communication, and your mental health, so you can leave rehab with a solid base to start from.

Our medication assisted treatment (MAT) programs are available where needed to help you navigate alcohol use disorder. If you think you need a MAT program, contact our counselors for a consultation. If we decide that a MAT program is the best treatment for your needs, we’ll discuss that with you ahead of time. In most cases, that will mean getting a Disulfiram, Naltrexone, or Acamprosate prescription.
