Yellowstone Recovery prides itself in providing high-quality, affordable addiction treatment in Orange County. Our drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine, California, offers a complete continuum of care from detoxification to sober living arrangements once you leave the facility.

Before attending any program at our addiction rehab, each potential participant undergoes an assessment to help get a better understanding of the level of care and type of help they need. This evaluation can also gauge whether a dual diagnosis or treatment for a co-occurring mental health condition is necessary.

Typically, joining one of our programs will begin with either a supervised detox, residential inpatient treatment, or intensive outpatient program. A less intensive outpatient program is usually recommended for individuals who do not need regular supervision, are not likely to hurt themselves or others, and those who do not have mental illnesses that must be managed alongside addiction.

Unlike other addiction centers where a one-size-fits-all approach is often the status quo, Yellowstone Recovery treatment centers focus on each individual with complexities and personal preferences that must be addressed.

Each patient at Yellowstone Recovery follows an entirely personalized, custom schedule composed of varied, evidence-based substance abuse treatment techniques.

Should patients need to start with a supervised detox, a program will be designed according to the substances they use, how long they’ve been using, and any other pertinent factors to consider.

A detox allows the body to rid itself of any traces of drugs and alcohol. Often, this involves experiencing uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that can be eased or managed by prescription or over-the-counter medication.

Many patients also find that the environment at a rehab center is calmer, more controlled, and therefore more conducive to a less chaotic withdrawal experience.

After completing a detox program, or should it not be deemed necessary, many patients are placed in a long-term residential program. During this program, participants live on-site and participate in various therapy and counseling sessions to help them understand the source and factors that contribute to their substance abuse.

Both the primary and extended care residential programs are best suited for individuals who require higher levels of health care, support, and supervision.

Once a patient has completed a residential program or is deemed fit to progress directly to outpatient treatment, they will typically be placed in an intensive outpatient treatment program.

At our alcohol and drug rehab near Irvine, CA, an intensive outpatient program involves participants residing at home and attending several hours of therapy and counseling daily.

This program is best suited to individuals who live close to our drug rehab in Irvine, CA, and who have a home environment that is supportive as well as alcohol and drug-free.

Some of the treatment modalities used in both inpatient and outpatient treatment include:

  • Group therapy, which usually consists of a group of 18-20 participants and lasts between one and three hours. This form of therapy allows patients to share experiences and struggles in a relatable, non-judgmental environment.
  • Individual therapy is required at least once a week for all participants. It focuses on modalities like cognitive-behavioral therapy, which addresses contributing factors and other issues that may have resulted in substance abuse.
  • Family support groups are another vital element of our treatment program They allow participants to work through familial conflict and contention to re-establish healthy boundaries and relationships between its members. They also provide family members of the person getting treated the support they need to maintain their own mental health.

As participants progress through their treatment plans, they are typically moved to programs that require lower levels of care.

Outpatient treatment is recommended for participants who have completed a higher care level program. Eventually, this treatment option will lead to re-entering society, whether through the support of friends and family or by placement in a sober living home, which Yellowstone Recovery can help arrange.
