What is Addiction Treatment Like at South Shores?

Individual therapy sessions

All rehab centers should be more than somewhere to go through withdrawal and attend therapy. Addiction is a lifelong condition. While you can learn how to manage it, there will be times in the future when you’re at risk of a relapse, even after getting 100% sober.

This is why it’s so important to learn more about the root cause of your addiction, coping skills for overcoming cravings, and the signs of relapse. It’s also important that you commit to a healthier lifestyle and receive continued support, even after rehab. Our addiction treatment programs offer a comprehensive approach to wellness.

You’ll learn not only how to overcome addiction, but also how to better your life. Furthermore, you’ll find our dedication to your recovery across all levels of treatment at our facility!

  • Individual therapy sessions
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • SMART recovery
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy sessions
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Peer support

We also offer various recreational therapies at our facility including surf therapy, cooking, art therapy, music therapy, meditation, and yoga, with various activities also held on the beach!

Participating in recreational activities is important for confidence building. It also helps you learn more about personal interests and strengths. This can also help you develop healthy coping methods that can be used after Huntington Beach drug or alcohol rehab.

Inpatient Treatment

The earliest days of sobriety are often the hardest. Withdrawal symptoms are uncomfortable and as the worst of the physical symptoms subside, you’ll experience intense cravings for your substance of choice. This makes it hard not to relapse, especially when you’re going through the withdrawal process alone.

During residential treatment at our drug and alcohol rehab facility, you’ll find the support needed to get through those tough times. If you are actively going through withdrawal from substances like opioids, alcohol, methamphetamine, or benzodiazepines, you’ll receive detox treatment in a safe, comfortable setting before entering rehab.

During inpatient treatment, you’ll learn more about your relationship with addiction and what in your life contributes to your struggles. You’ll learn coping skills for overcoming struggles, healthy habits, and how to best support yourself as you continue recovery after rehab.

You’ll also participate in recreational activities that promote holistic healing, helping you develop confidence and promoting total wellness. During groups, you’ll build social skills and develop support. We even offer nutritional support and cooking classes to promote wellness after rehab.

Medical Detoxification Programs

Medical Detoxification Programs

Long-term substance abuse causes dependence in the body and mind. When this dependence happens, you’ll feel that you need to drink or use drugs just to feel “normal.” It’s also likely that if you suddenly stop using drugs or alcohol, you’ll go through withdrawal.

Some symptoms like body aches, sleep and appetite changes, flu-like symptoms, or mental symptoms like depression or anxiety are unpleasant. Others, however, can be dangerous.

During medical detox at South Shores treatment center, you’ll be able to go through detoxification in a controlled environment. Our rooms are peaceful and comfortable, a good place to relax during the withdrawal process.

You’ll also be monitored by a medical professional who may prescribe medications to help manage the symptoms of alcohol or drug withdrawal and make withdrawal more comfortable.

Outpatient Programs for Substance Abuse

Following rehab, some clients attend sober living while others return home. With our proximity to Huntington Beach, many attend partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient programs at treatment centers after inpatient rehab. These programs are a step down from inpatient recovery but offer high levels of structure and support as you ease back into life.

During a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or intensive outpatient program (IOP), you’ll spend several hours at our treatment center per therapy session. The specifics are going to depend on your availability and specific needs.

You’ll participate in many of the same elements of inpatient drug rehab, including individual, group, or family counseling, medication management, and recreational activities.

Get Help for Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders with Dual Diagnosis

Statistics from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration show 21.5 million adults across the United States struggling with co-occurring mental illness and alcohol or drug addiction. There are several reasons for this correlation.

Substance abuse and mental health have many of the same risk factors, including environmental and genetic. Long-term use of drugs or alcohol can also contribute to secondary mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, or psychosis. On the opposite side of things, mental health disorders like bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or severe anxiety can contribute to drug or alcohol abuse, especially if they are untreated. People with untreated mental illness may use drugs or alcohol to relieve their symptoms, eventually developing a dependence.

South Shores Recovery offers dual diagnosis treatment near Huntington Beach, CA for clients with co-occurring disorders. You cannot effectively treat substance use disorders without addressing mental health issues. Mental health is an important part of achieving long-term sobriety.
