Addiction in Orange County - Alcohol Rehab Southern California

Southern California may not have the same reputation for drug or alcohol abuse that is shared by many other hard-hit states across the country, but that doesn’t mean we don’t struggle with addiction. In fact, we may struggle more silently. 

A report published by the California Health Care Foundation in 2018 found that no less than 6% of Californians' drinking can be clearly classified as alcoholism, while around 3% of our citizens' illegal drug use has veered into a full-fledged addiction. 

When combined, the evidence predicts that nearly one in ten people in our community struggle with a substance use disorder and need addiction treatment.

Substance Abuse Breakdown

According to the Orange County Health Care Agency, the most common forms of drug addictions being treated are:

  • Methamphetamines (and other stimulants) - 44%
  • Heroin - 20%
  • Alcohol - 18%
  • Marijuana - 13%
  • Other opiates - 2%
  • Other sedatives - 1%

 

Note that the true drug and alcohol addiction statistics may diverge somewhat from reality. These numbers only represent people who are already completing treatment in a drug or alcohol rehab.

Recognizing Addiction

Because we live in a state with a great deal of illegal and legal substance use, many people struggle to identify what constitutes treatable drug or alcohol addiction. In truth, it's essential to trust your gut on this. If you have arrived here because you're concerned about yourself or a loved one, you or they may meet the criteria for treatment.

Signs You May Need Addiction Treatment in Orange County

A few signs that risky problem use has evolved into a true addiction include:

  • Developing tolerance for a substance - Taking greater doses of almost any drug is a common side effect of chemical dependence.
  • Financial struggles - Allocating resources becomes more challenging when addiction sits in the driver's seat.
  • Cravings - Hard to control thoughts or bodily sensations that may lead you to fixate on the idea of using when you haven't been feeding the addiction.
  • Lying - Keeping secrets from your family or loved ones about what, how much, how frequently, where, or with whom you use or drink is a strong sign that use has gotten out of control.
  • Preoccupation - How much mental space and time does thinking about your substance use take up? If your mind frequently wanders to thoughts of finding, buying, and using, even when you're trying to focus on your work, relationships, or interests, you would probably benefit from drug treatment.
  • Withdrawal - Cutting down or attempting to quit cold turkey has slammed you with a host of withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the substance of abuse, these may be psychological or physical.

 

Long-term and binge use of almost every single psychoactive substance can be destructive to our bodies. When many of the most obvious signs are physically visible, it is time to look into drug rehab.

Changes like sudden weight loss, shifts in wakefulness patterns, exhaustion, and track marks are common external symptoms. Still, it is important to remember that they pale in comparison to the stress and damage that untreated addictions can have on your internal organs and health.

Addiction Treatment Orange County

Clients who come to us seeking addiction treatment for a substance use disorder have made one of the most difficult choices of their lives. Our treatment programs uphold that choice by supporting each person with every mote of knowledge that our highly trained staff of addiction professionals have in their collective arsenal.

In other words, we have dedicated our lives to learning the best and most effective ways to treat substance abuse issues, and we use every tool at our disposal.

A treatment program at Cornerstone SoCal will be individualized according to your or your loved one's enrollment assessment. We will always provide the appropriate care to each case and circumstance. However, medical care at a Cornerstone rehab center will follow a standard timeline.

1. Drug Treatment Orange County

The first step to recovery is understanding. We offer free and private drug addiction assessments to anyone who is concerned that they may require alcohol or drug rehab.

At a pre-admission assessment, you will speak with one of our addiction specialists as they work to discover the scope and depth of your substance abuse, the impacts it has had on your life, and your current living situation.

They may also flag any symptoms of other co-occurring disorders for care later on as part of our dual diagnosis mental health treatment program. Dual diagnosis is a medical approach to addiction recovery that recognizes the relationship between mental health, mental illness, and substance use disorder. Untreated co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are leading causes of addiction that need to be addressed from the start of drug rehab if they are present.

All medical professionals at Cornerstone clinics maintain confidentiality with anyone who reaches out to us.

2. Drug or Alcohol Detox

Once you are admitted into one of our addiction recovery programs, the next step is to embark on detox. Detoxification, or detox, describes both the natural process of the body relieving itself of toxins (in this case, the substance of abuse) and also the medical process of aiding the body in that endeavor.

Withdrawal symptoms are intense for individuals who have been binging or using a substance for an extended period. At our Orange County drug and alcohol detox facilities, we offer medication-assisted treatment and support for unmedicated detox, depending on your needs, which are assessed continuously.

We place our clients' physical and mental health above all else. Individuals who come to us with severe addictions to alcohol, benzodiazepines, or opiates may be at risk if they choose to undergo withdrawal without medically assisted detox. Choosing to detox at one of our rehab centers is a much safer, more comfortable way to take this first step.

3. Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment Program

At Cornerstone, the vast majority of our clients choose to stay with us as part of our twenty-eight-day inpatient residential treatment program. We invite our clients to fully dedicate their time and energy while they're in the program by coming to stay at one of our comfortable, modern campuses.

People in inpatient care benefit from twenty-four-hour medical supervision on a substance-free campus, where they can take advantage of beautiful state-of-the-art treatment facilities packed with healthy activities and serene downtime to meditate and reflect. You will also have a schedule packed with different therapeutic modalities, fresh, nutritious meals cooked on campus, and a supportive community of other Cornerstone rehab center clients during your time with us.

In some cases, you may benefit more from outpatient treatment. This is likely in instances where you truly cannot meet the time commitment of spending a month at a rehab center. In this instance, we offer intensive outpatient programs and partial hospitalization with many of the benefits of residential rehab. These options provide medication-assisted treatment for withdrawal symptoms, one-to-one therapy, and group therapy.

4. Post-Treatment Addiction Care

Upon graduating from one of our substance abuse treatment programs, you will continue to work on your recovery. Addiction treatment is in many ways a time to retreat in the quiet, learn skills, engage fully with your therapy, and ultimately build up your toolkit of coping mechanisms to be able to live your life outside of rehab without giving in to drug abuse.

However, there are challenges to transitioning back to real life - we return to daily stresses and struggles. Alcohol or drug addiction costs many people their jobs, finances, and even social communities.

We want this transition to be as harmonious and stress-free as possible for you. As you're reaching the end of your stay at one of our rehab centers, you'll receive help in building an extended care plan for yourself following addiction treatment. Our team can help you find legal support, financial resources, 12-step groups, and ongoing outpatient treatment programs to help you transfer back to daily life without losing sight of your recovery journey.

Our Modalities

At Cornerstone, our large interdisciplinary team is qualified and licensed in many different evidence-based treatment modalities and therapeutic approaches. This gives us the ability to personalize your addiction treatment perfectly to your needs and personal history.

Upon seeking addiction treatment at one of our Orange County drug rehab centers, you may have access to the following modalities, many of which are available both as individual and group therapy options:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (CBT)
  • Art therapy
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy
  • Person-centered therapy
  • Emotion-focused therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Transactional analysis
  • Existential therapy
  • Psychoeducation
  • Psychodrama
  • Schema therapy
  • Rational emotive behavior therapy
  • Integrative counseling
  • Compassion-focused therapy
  • Cognitive analytical therapy
  • Psychodynamic counseling
  • Life skills work

We understand addiction as a physical and psychological sickness and therapy as a medical tool to treat its root causes. Different people will require different forms of therapy during their time at the addiction treatment center because no two histories of substance abuse are the same.

Ultimately, the goal of our time with you at a Cornerstone rehab center is to use our therapeutic skills to restore your mental, physical, and behavioral health.
