A Beautiful Southern California

Residential Alcohol Rehab Programs and Drug Rehab

Our drug rehab in Lancaster, CA, near Palmdale, California, offers the entire continuum of addiction treatmentdetox through long-term rehab, and outpatient treatment.

Located in beautiful Southern California, our affordable drug rehab offers the ideal environment for beginning the addiction recovery process. Our alcoholism treatment program provides a holistic approach to treatment, harnessing the 12-step program, and evidence-based practices with high success rates. Note that we also offer “non 12 steps” alternatives.

What to Expect During Treatment

When clients enter our Lancaster alcohol rehab, they can enjoy unparalleled peace of mind.

Our affordable drug rehabilitation programs focus on more than just dealing with addiction’s physical aspects. They are comprehensive individual wellness solutions that target both the mind and body.

We understand the difficulty of finding a drug rehab in California that is both affordable and effective. We pride ourselves in providing care that allows us to focus on addiction’s underlying problem, not just its symptoms. Our clients leave our comprehensive care feeling confident, at peace, and able to engage wholly in the world around them.

Drug and Alcohol Detox

Detox is the preliminary stage of addiction treatment. It primarily consists of a medical process that neutralizes all the toxins in the body.

Withdrawal symptoms are quite dangerous and have occasionally resulted in fatalities. Therefore, detox gets performed by a certified medical professional.

Quitting drugs or alcohol suddenly without a medical professional’s help is discouraged. Detox, though, is beneficial as it significantly reduces the impact of drug withdrawal.

It is not unusual for a detoxification program to extend to weeks, depending on the severity of the addiction.

Thankfully, our medical personnel has the required knowledge, skills, and experience to purge your body of these harmful toxins. However, it is essential to note that detox is just the first step on your journey towards recovery.

Inpatient Drug Rehab

Affordable rehab centers help cope with intensive, sustained, and prolonged drug and alcohol use. It provides drug counseling and medical means to ensure that patients get their lives back in control after treatment.

By the end of their inpatient residency, they should be able to reintegrate themselves into society and live meaningful, productive lives.

Inpatient rehabilitation centers are a critical stage in the recovery process for many addicts. Such patients are at the constant risk of relapsing and falling back into their former habits. They may also suffer the harmful drawback of withdrawal and the subsequent complications it might cause. All these contributing factors make inpatient treatment a necessity.

The benefits include the round the clock presence of medical personnel and counselors tasked with closely monitoring your wellbeing. Should an emergency arise from withdrawal, then you can rest assured that you are in the best of hands.

Group therapy and individual sessions with a trained therapist are common strategies that inpatient facilities use. We recognize the value of such interventions and have developed them to meet and surpass the best facilities out there.

Outpatient Drug Rehab

Outpatient facilities for addiction recovery are the right choice for those with mild addiction issues. It is a light form of rehabilitation that does not require any residency.

One of the main benefits of this program is its flexibility. It allows you to continue with life as usual. The implication is that you can fulfill career obligations, have a healthy family life, and pursue treatment simultaneously.

We realize that this option is not suitable for just about anyone. After considering your drug history and other factors, our counselors will determine if outpatient rehabilitation is the best fit for you.

In severe addiction cases to hardcore drugs like heroin and meth, an intensive outpatient program is hardly an option. The treatment usually involves intense withdrawal symptoms and strong relapsing chances, inpatient residency at a rehabilitation center.

If you are in the early stages of addiction, a counselor might prescribe this form of treatment. The client is allowed to go about his usual activities.

However, he must check into our rehab each week for counseling sessions and medication.

Family Therapy Programs

The sad reality of alcohol and substance addiction is that its effect goes beyond the individual. Aside from yourself, the other likely casualties of your drug use are, unfortunately, your family.

Drug abuse has a habit of eating into family finances, leaving you and your family destitute.

That said, we recognize the value of family programs for addiction to assist the entire family. We realize that the family is the first line of support and encouragement for the recovering addict. A fact that makes these programs all the more critical.

Often most families don’t address a loved one’s addiction in time to get appropriate treatment. The lack of timely intervention could well be as a result of being at a loss themselves.

Eventually, things tend to get out of hand, leaving families broken.

Holistic Addiction Treatment

Holistic drug rehabilitation is fast emerging as a viable alternative to traditional treatment that relies on medicine. It consists of making a few conscious changes to your lifestyle.

These nonmedical approaches are used in conjunction with other medicinal methods to form a strategy that encompasses all techniques.

Healthy eating habits that emphasize a balanced diet and regular exercise have helped addicts recover from their addictions quite effectively. Unlike other treatment options, holistic programs favor their entire wellbeing, starting with his physical body mindset.

Standard methods in holistic treatment centers include acupuncture, meditation, spiritual therapy, creative projects, exercise, yoga, and even massage.

Long Term Addiction Treatment

For long-term alcohol abuse and substance users, this type of treatment program may necessitate significantly longer stays in our addiction recovery program. Usually for periods of not less than ninety days, as recommended by experts on addiction recovery.

Statistics show that the chances of recovering are raised significantly with the more days you spend in rehab.

A stay at a long-term drug rehabilitation center may extend to about six months should the need arise. Long-term rehab centers deal with the problems of longtime addicts who would otherwise struggle to recover under any other program.

We offer a multifaceted approach to the situation. We ensure that patients receive in-house rehabilitation and have enough time and support to recover sufficiently from their harmful habits.

Suppose you have attended less intensive programs with not much success. You can be sure that our facility will see that you get the help you need.

Our dedicated staff will explore all viable options. They will recommend a workable solution. However, if you have been a longtime user of certain substances, your counselor will likely recommend a long-term solution.

Does Meditation Help You Sleep?

There’s no coincidence as to why people tell you to slow down and take deep, long breaths when you feel anxious and upset. They want you to get your breathing down to a relaxed pace and turn your focus toward your breath instead of whatever it is that is inspiring you to come undone. Returning yourself to the breath is an immediate source of healing. Once you “catch your breath,” you find yo
