During treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, each client will have different needs. Some clients are new to recovery and need more care. On the other hand, others completed intensive rehab and need more flexibility for treatment. Our Los Angeles rehab facility in Southern California offers varying levels of care for clients at Sanctuary Treatment Center.
Addiction rehab programs need to have different levels of care. That way, rehab can meet each client “where they are” in their recovery. In addition, some people have stronger support systems at home than others. Because of this, some clients need ongoing supervision to stay safe from relapse triggers and cravings. On the other hand, some people have family members who can hold them accountable when they attend rehab while living at home.
Thus, Sanctuary Treatment Center offers the following levels of care at our rehab in Los Angeles, California:
While detox is one of the shortest levels of care, it is often the most intense. Detox is the first step in any addiction rehab program. Whether a person is new to treatment or recently relapsed, they will first need to detox. During detox, each client rids themselves of the harmful substances of their addiction.
As a client goes through detox, underlying issues can come to the surface. For instance, a person drinking to self-medicate for anxiety can notice a return of their anxious feelings.
In addition, detox is vital to treatment because of withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to life-threatening. Most people cannot focus on therapy while going through acute withdrawal. After one to two weeks of inpatient detox, most clients will be ready to engage in continuing treatment.
Residential treatment is what most people think of when they hear “rehab.” However, residential treatment is just one part of rehab in Los Angeles, California. During a residential treatment program, clients live at the rehab facility. Thus, residential treatment is considered an inpatient program, like detox.
However, unlike detox, residential treatment lasts longer. Many residential programs require at least thirty days. Some people stay in treatment for more time. In fact, stays of ninety days or more often lead to better outcomes and lower the risk of relapse in early recovery.
During these programs, clients are safe from temptation and triggers with around-the-clock staff supervision. They are also free from any distractions or stressors that could trigger addiction. Clients get the chance to uncover the underlying causes of their addiction in residential treatment.
Outpatient treatment means that a client lives away from the facility. Thus, outpatient treatment can refer to several types of programs. Outpatient programs can also vary in intensity. For example, some programs require a person to attend five days a week for several hours per day. However, other outpatient programs occur once a week for only a short visit of an hour or less.
In addition, a person could live on their own, with family, or in a sober living home during outpatient treatment. As a client continues through treatment, they often need less and less time in their program. Of course, things could change, meaning that a client might increase their time in outpatient treatment with additional appointments or other programs.
Aftercare planning is crucial to any level of care in recovery. While in one type of program, each client will work on treatment goals. Once a client meets these goals, they could move on to the next phase of treatment. At some point, a client will reach all of their goals in treatment. Still, being connected to the recovery community is vital to long-term recovery.
Therefore, aftercare programs can include things like attending groups as alumni after treatment. In other words, people can come in as needed or even help others in the early stages of their treatment. Many aftercare programs foster a sense of community to keep people on track in their sobriety. Support groups, like AA or NA, are also great options for aftercare.
At all levels of care, our rehab center offers many types of therapy. Depending on a person’s needs or underlying mental health disorders, they could respond to some therapies more than others. For this reason, Sanctuary has many options to help clients in recovery.
