Orange County Drug Rehab

Today, nearly 1 in 20 Americans struggles with a substance use disorder. 18.5 million of us are addicted to drugs or alcohol. Yet, in 2019-2020, just 10.3 percent ever sought out treatment. Drug rehab is accessible, supportive, and it works. Your insurance will help pay for it. And, it’s the best way to move forward to rebuild your life after struggling with a drug use disorder. Drug addiction is a behavioral and mental health disorder that impacts every aspect of your life – from how your brain works to how you prioritize, spend your time, and your long-term health.

At Compassion Recovery Centers, we know that addiction is a disorder. No one chooses to be addicted, but you have to take responsibility, work through therapy, and rebuild your life if you want to get that life back. We want to help. Our rehab center offers intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization, combined with evidence-based therapy and treatment, and a team of compassionate medical experts. Our therapists, who are Masters-level, specialize in behavioral therapy for treating substance use disorders. Most importantly, we deliver the fully personalized approaches you need to overcome your specific mental and physical health problems, to treat the underlying causes behind the disorder, and to get better.

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

What is Drug Rehab?

Drug Rehab involves multiple stages of treatment to help you move past every aspect of addiction. At Compassion Recovery Centers, that means using assessment, evidence-backed therapies like CBT, EMDR, and REBT, counseling, group therapy, and complementary therapies. We use personalized programs, tailoring which types of treatment and how much of it you receive to your problems. And, we focus on helping you to identify underlying problems and root causes, so you resolve not just the symptoms of substance abuse, but the actual problems.

Compassion Recovery uses a diverse range of treatments and therapies to help you improve your wellbeing, to retrain negative behaviors and behavior patterns. We also help you build skills like stress management, emotional regulation, good nutrition, and good exercise habits, so you have the tools to stay happy and healthy once you leave.
Plus, substance use treatment never ends when you walk out the door. Addictions don’t just go away. Your treatment shouldn’t either. We offer comprehensive and long-term aftercare programs as part of our standard treatment.

Outpatient care is conducted at our Orange County drug rehab, under the supervision of our medical team and therapists. Here, you’ll attend up to 6 hours of treatment per day, comprised of behavioral therapies like CBT, EMDR, and REBT, counseling, group therapy, spiritual support, complementary therapies, and outings and exercise. You get full freedom to go about your daily life, to choose your own place of residence, and to continue caring for and spending time with family members.

Outpatient treatment offers a high quality and effective alternative to residential treatment. Most insurance policies cover the maximum allowed by their policies for outpatient care.

Intensive Outpatient

Intensive Outpatient care delivers the same treatment and therapy in a smaller timeframe. This option is ideal for individuals with a lighter addiction, who have previously attended inpatient or residential care, and who need checkups and ongoing therapy. This option is also ideal for those who want to continue working or attending school while in treatment.

Drug Treatment at Compassion Recovery

Our focus on helping the individual to recover means we personalize every program, so your blend of therapy, counseling, and activities are unique to your problems.

You’ll always have to deliver some information during the original consultation. However, we’ll follow up during the intake to determine your physical and mental health. This includes a physical examination and a review of your provided medical records. It also involves a psychiatric assessment including a questionnaire. These allow us to determine your health, your motivation towards recovery, and to set the first steps of your recovery plan into motion.

Compassion Recovery offers a drug detox clinic in Laguna Beach. Here, you can withdraw, either in your own time or with medication assistance, in a safe and medically monitored environment. This includes medical checkups, medication to control severe symptoms, and monitoring to ensure that nothing goes wrong. Detox times vary considerably depending on the drug, your metabolism, how heavily you’re using, and even factors like weight and age.

  • Stimulants – Withdrawal symptoms start within a few days, escalate quickly, and then vanish within a few days.
  • Sedatives – Most sedatives, especially benzodiazepines, have a withdrawal period that begins within 4-24 hours. Long-acting or slow-release sedatives may take up to 4 days. Symptoms escalate over the first 4 days and then begin to taper off. However, they may not fully vanish for over a month. For this reason, you’re likely to move into therapy after symptoms peak and begin to recede.
  • Opioids – Opioid withdrawal normally starts within 6-12 hours of your last dose. Symptoms escalate over the first 4-5 days and then begin to subside. Slow-release opioids take longer, and withdrawal symptoms might not kick in for 4 days after your final dose. Unfortunately, this also means withdrawal symptoms last longer.

Our Master’s level therapists are on call to deliver both individual and group therapy. We use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, RBT, and EMDR to help you assess and move past behaviors, trauma, and emotions, so you can leave our doors stronger than ever. This combination, and specific topics covered in therapy, are tailored based on your specific needs. You’ll also attend generic therapy courses focused on substance abuse, reliance, and addiction.

  • CBT – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the standard treatment for substance use disorder. It’s the most recommended and studies consistently show positive results. We use cognitive behavioral therapy to help you assess behavior patterns (like thought patterns, actions, reactions, decision-making) to determine negative behaviors and to build replacements. These allow you to reinforce positive behaviors.
  • REBT– We use Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy to help you recognize, assess, and change negative beliefs and thought patterns. These might include low self-esteem, seeking behavior, feelings of exclusion, stigma, or even lack of motivation to go through therapy. The treatment is tailored to your specific needs, beliefs, and behaviors, so you can work on the problems standing between you and recovery.
  • EMDR – We use Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing to help you process and move past trauma and cravings in a healthy way. This behavioral therapy uses exposure to help you move forward by reducing sensitivity to triggers.

While many people prefer to move through as much of treatment as possible without medication, that isn’t always the best idea. That’s why we offer personalized medication-assisted treatment programs, available where necessary, so you get the care you need to recover.

Addiction doesn’t go away when you step in the door. It doesn’t go away just because you’ve completed a program. Our program offers the tools and assistance you need to get started on your own. However, you can still relapse. We know you’ll still need help. That’s why we offer long-term aftercare and support, so you always have somewhere to go.

Today, almost half of all persons with a substance use disorder also have a mental health disorder. This complicates treatment, because a mental health disorder can get in the way of therapy. Our dual diagnosis tracks focus on treating the most pressing issues first, so that you get treatment that works for you, in the moment. That means focusing on life threatening problems, treating barriers to further treatment, and creating a program around your specific needs and problems. It also means we can work with you taking medication for psychiatric problems – discuss your needs with our counselors during the consultation to learn more.

Anxiety and depression in early recovery are incredibly common. In fact, most people experience feelings of anxiety, depression, or paranoia for the first 1-12 months following their last dose. These feelings can get in the way of treatment. They can cause relapse once you leave. And, they can reduce your quality of life. We deliver full mental health treatment from the start, so you can get help.

Complimentary Treatment
Complimentary Treatment

We use behavioral therapy and counseling as our primary treatment program. However, you can always attend additional programs and classes to add to that. Our offerings like outings (hiking, kayaking), spirituality, stress management, emotional management, nutrition, and other skills training don’t work to treat your disorder. However, they complement the actual therapy, working to build the skills you need to navigate and enjoy life without drugs.
