About Design for ChangeYou are here:
Design for Change Recovery provides unique addiction treatment programs that include evidence-based therapies as part of a comprehensive curriculum. Our customized programs help clients gain the skills and confidence they need to cultivate a design for change that encourages a substance-free lifestyle.
Located in scenic Lancaster, California, Design for Change Recovery provides treatment for all types of substance use disorders. We offer a full continuum of care accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). We earned the JCAHO Gold Seal of Approval for our high standards in addiction treatment, a standard we continue to maintain.
We believe recovery is possible for everyone if they receive the right combination of knowledge, support, and guidance. Our foremost goal is to help clients overcome addiction and move toward reaching their full potential in life.
Part of our mission is to provide the high-quality, effective care our clients need and deserve. We achieve this through client-centric programs that help them gain the skills, confidence, and motivation needed to achieve sustainable results.
As a caring treatment provider, we are dedicated entirely to the success of our clients. With that in mind, we do all we can to ensure that each client meets their recovery goals.
Values and Standards
It’s important to us that our clients are confident in our treatment methods. We realize that our actions can have a meaningful impact on their lives. Therefore, to gain their trust, we adhere to the highest standards of integrity and ethics at all times.
We also believe it is our responsibility to foster an atmosphere that allows clients to feel safe, nurtured, and respected during their time in our program. Addiction recovery can be a lonely, frustrating experience, so we make sure each client gets the encouragement, recognition, and guidance they need.
Addiction is a complex disorder involving a range of mental, physical, and spiritual elements. Due to these multifaceted components, addiction treatment must provide an integrated approach that targets each aspect for the best outcome. So, rather than apply the standard one-size-fits-all treatment approach, we customize a plan based on each client’s unique needs.
At Design for Change, we incorporate various therapies that help clients learn better-coping methods and gain mental clarity. Their personalized recovery plan can consist of the following::
- Group and Individual Counseling
- Medication-Assisted Treatment
- 12-Step Programs
- Cognitive Therapies
- Nutritional Guidance
- Music and Art Therapy
- Outdoor Activities/Experiential Therapy
- Psychodrama Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Biosound Therapy
- Dual-Diagnosis Treatment
- Family Therapy
- Extended Care Services
Moreover, our program offers consideration for gender, religion, and sexual orientation. We are also proud to provide specialized treatment plans such as our First Responders Wellness Program. In addition, we provide multiple levels of treatment to accommodate a client’s unique situation.
We believe addiction treatment doesn’t have to always be hard work, so we offer activities that bring a little fun into the day. This approach shows clients that they can enjoy life without drugs or alcohol. Engaging in activities such as music, art, exercise, and outdoor activities also helps clients discover hidden talents or interests that they can explore further after treatment.
Levels of Care
We understand that not everyone can commit to a long-term inpatient program. For that reason, we offer different levels of care. Depending on the intensity of addiction and personal commitments, clients have the following options:
- Standard Outpatient Programs
- Intensive Outpatient Programs
- Residential / Inpatient Programs
- Partial Hospitalization Programs
No matter which program our clients enter, they receive a combination of classes, activities, and counseling to gain the skills and confidence they’ll need on their somewhat challenging recovery journey.
Another key point about our levels of care is that clients may take advantage of more than one type of program. For instance, clients leaving our residential program or PHPs can step down to our outpatient program. In this way, their transition from rehab to the outside world will be less daunting.
All in all, Design for Change provides the most comprehensive, innovative holistic approach to treatment available. Our objective is to heal the whole person, not just the addiction. We understand the distinctions between healing and recovery and structure our programs to facilitate both.
The healing process is like a rebirth, where emotional wounds become less painful. Recovery is to regain what was lost during addiction. Counseling and family therapy play a significant role in their overall healing and recovery process.
Affordable Addiction Treatment
One of our goals at Design for Change is to help people get affordable treatment. We realize many people don’t enter treatment due to financial issues. Consequently, their health and lives are at risk. As part of our effort to ensure that everyone has access to treatment, we accept insurance from most major insurance companies. For clients who don’t have insurance, we will help make other financial arrangements.
