The National Institute on Drug Abuse defines addiction as a chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug-seeking, continuous use despite harmful consequences, and long-lasting changes in the brain. The simple fact of addiction is that it changes the way your brain functions, making it so complex to treat. Many addiction professionals view addiction as a biopsychosocial disease. The American Society for Addiction Medicine believes that genetic factors represent approximately half the risk that an individual will develop an addiction, with the remaining risk determined by environmental factors. Both the risks for addiction and the manifestations of addiction cross over into biological, social, psychological, and spiritual factors. 

At our Orange County inpatient treatment facility, we understand the complexities that bring people into addiction and apply a multi-faceted approach to treatment. While some erroneously believe that getting sober is as easy as putting down drugs and alcohol, we know that the road to recovery is paved with many potholes. We are here to help you navigate that road and to help you build a recovery toolkit to help you keep going long after you leave treatment. Because in the end, we know that the purpose of addiction treatment is to create a life in which you can thrive.

What Exactly is Drug & Alcohol Inpatient Treatment?

While many think that inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is just about detox, it is also about so much more. It is true that drug and alcohol inpatient treatment begins with detox. However, the purpose of detox is simply to stabilize you while your body rids itself of the drugs and prepares you to begin treatment. At our Orange County inpatient treatment facility, we start by meeting with you to create an individualized treatment plan that meets you where you are. Your treatment plan will include group and individual therapy of varying types, skills groups, and activities that are all intended to help you learn how to build a life in recovery. 

Once you put down the drugs and alcohol, we help you learn what life without them can look like for you. In treatment, you’ll participate in individual and group therapy to understand what brought you to addiction and how to live a life outside of it. You will also build a recovery toolkit that you’ll take with you into the future. We’ll help you learn how things like breathing, yoga, and movement can serve you when stressful circumstances arise. The goal of treatment is to help you break free of the addiction and then begin the work of life in recovery. Inpatient treatment is the cornerstone of your sober life.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient: Which is Right for Me?

While inpatient and outpatient treatment can have some of the same therapies included, inpatient treatment is a much more intensive option. Outpatient treatment options include partial hospitalization programs (PHP), intensive outpatient programs (IOP), and traditional outpatient programs. Outpatient programs have varying time requirements for attendance and have different levels of therapy included depending on the time commitment and structure of the program. Deciding on the best treatment for you might seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Take the decision one bite at a time, and don’t be afraid to rely on the professionals when making these decisions. Before you can decide on the best treatment fit, you must begin to examine your drug use history and any past attempts at sobriety. You also will want to find out what resources, including your health insurance, are available to you to cover the cost of treatment. Depending on your employment status, you may be eligible for a protected leave of absence from work. As you make your decision you should take into consideration any family obligations you may have. In the end, you are the only one who can decide on the best addiction treatment path. 

Perhaps you have tried to quit using drugs in the past and want to try a different route than your previous attempts. You may want to explore a treatment plan that begins with the higher intensity of inpatient treatment and then use outpatient treatment as aftercare. At Life Vessel, we’ll sit down with you, in the beginning, to help you assess where you’ve been, where you are, and where you are headed. After we’ve gathered that information, we can help you identify the best path forward. At our inpatient drug rehab in Orange County, we understand that not everyone can attend inpatient treatment. If that is the case for you, we can help you through detox and help you locate an outpatient treatment program to continue your journey.

How to Find the Best Inpatient Rehab in Orange County

As you explore the options for inpatient treatment in Orange County, you must take a moment to identify what you want from treatment. While active in your addiction, you have been focused on getting drugs, using them, and likely lying about using them. Treatment is the first step on a long road, and you want to begin with a treatment center that lines up with what you want in recovery. Addiction treatment is the foundation of your recovery, and you want a treatment facility whose philosophy lines up with what you want in your recovery. 

As you investigate different treatment facilities, ask questions about the therapies and activities offered. You will want a facility that has experience treating not only drug addiction but also any co-occurring disorders you may have. As you gather information, you might speak with others in recovery to learn about their experiences with different facilities. When you contact a facility, ask if they have expertise in treating addiction to your drug of choice. Additionally, you’ll want to know the structure and duration of treatment and if aftercare is available. Many facilities will offer some form of outpatient treatment or alumni network after treatment to help support you as you make your way in recovery.
