Break Free from Alcohol Addiction at Our Orange County Alcohol Rehab
Alcohol is the third most common preventable cause of death in the United States. In fact, nearly 90,000 Americans die each year from alcohol-related causes. If you’re worried that you or someone you love will become a part of these statistics, our professional recovery center in Orange County can help.
Whether you are looking for help for yourself or someone you love, it can be difficult to make a decision when there are so many addiction recovery centers to choose from. Take a look at how alcohol rehab works at Yellowstone Recovery, from program types to facility amenities
Our Alcohol Addiction Treatment Options
Although alcohol is a legal substance that most adults are able to enjoy in moderation, there are thousands who develop dependencies. It can be easy for those who do not understand the nature of alcohol addiction to brush it off as a behavioral flaw, but, particularly for those with a genetic pre-disposition for alcoholism, quitting drinking can be something that requires intensive professional treatment.
Many people also fail to realize that the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can be even more dangerous than those of seemingly “harder” substances. For this reason, it’s important that actively addicted individuals avoid going “cold turkey” in favor of a medically monitored detox process.
At Yellowstone, our alcohol rehabilitation programs are available in three forms: residential (sometimes called “inpatient”), outpatient, and intensive outpatient.
The most common type of alcohol addiction treatment program our clients choose is residential treatment. This type of treatment is the most intensive and has the most restrictions. As a residential client, you will be required to live on-site in our facility housing. During the first few weeks, you will also not be allowed to leave the Yellowstone premises and will need to go through a “blackout period” during which you cannot contact anyone outside of the facility (including loved ones).
If you are still actively struggling with your addiction like most clients at the start of treatment, you’ll begin your program with medical detox. During this process, you’ll be watched closely by medical staff to ensure the safest, most comfortable experience possible. If your doctor determines it is appropriate, you may be prescribed temporary medications to help ease certain withdrawal symptoms.
Once you’re free from your physical dependency on alcohol, you’ll begin the primary phase of treatment. Through a 12-step program, individual therapy, and group therapy sessions with licensed addiction counselors, you’ll delve into the issues behind your addiction to alcohol and learn the coping strategies and life skills you’ll need to succeed in your new sober life. You’ll be required to maintain a set schedule of meetings and participate fully in order to be considered compliant with your program.
You’ll be supervised at all times by friendly facility staff who can help you with various day-to-day concerns. You’ll also have the benefit of a natural peer support network as you work and live together with others in treatment.
After 30 days in primary care, you’ll move into the extended care phase of treatment. This half of the rehab process is all about practicing what you’ve learned and building a strong plan for your life after release from treatment. Counselors and staff will work closely with you to help you become truly self-sufficient and find things like employment and housing. At this stage, you’ll have much more freedom to contact people and have both on- and off-site visits with friends and loved ones.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Although the majority of our clients go through residential treatment to combat an active addiction, some individuals do not require detox for a physical addiction when they come to us (either because their addiction is mild or because they sought detox elsewhere). For individuals like this who have not recently completed a residential program, our intensive outpatient program (IOP) is often an ideal choice.
If you are admitted as an intensive outpatient client, you won’t be required to live onsite. This means you’ll be able to meet your usual responsibilities and continue working during rehab. However, you’ll still have to attend at least one individual therapy session and four group therapy sessions per week. If you do not have a safe, alcohol-free place to live during IOP, you may be eligible for a place in one of our sober living homes.
If you’ve recently finished a residential treatment program and feel like you may need some additional care, you may choose to enter our outpatient alcohol treatment program. This will allow you to address any outstanding concerns and strengthen your sobriety further before returning fully to society. You may live off-site with family or in a sober living home, but you will be required to have one individual therapy session and three group therapy sessions each week. You’ll also be expected to work through a 12-step program with a sponsor.
How We Can Help You Find the Right Alcohol Abuse Treatment
It can be difficult to decide which type of treatment is appropriate for you. If you are still actively struggling with your addiction, residential treatment is likely the best choice. If you don’t need detox but haven’t gone through residential treatment, you might choose intensive outpatient. If you’re transitioning from residential care, outpatient treatment can offer ongoing support.
If you’re still uncertain which type of program is best suited to your needs, our expert alcohol recovery specialists can help you explore your options. We’ll walk you through all the information, discuss your insurance eligibility, and even help you find convenient financing opportunities.
Our Top-Notch Alcohol Recovery Facilities
Yellowstone Recovery is known for more than just our great program results; we also offer a truly beautiful and comfortable rehabilitation experience. With two rehab locations and multiple sober living homes across Orange County, we offer clients a peaceful place to recover just a short distance from the ocean. The natural beauty of the sunny California coastline creates a healing atmosphere that perfectly complements our meticulously maintained grounds and top-quality facilities.
Residential clients live together in fully furnished, gender-specific housing (with staff supervision and security) and are provided with all the food, toiletries, and other necessities they will require during treatment. Our sober living homes are staffed by a full-time house manager. Residents can take advantage of on-site laundry facilities, recreational areas, and other amenities.
What to Expect from Your Alcohol Rehab Experience
Regardless of which of our programs you choose, here’s an idea of how things will progress:
- Alcohol detox: This will likely be your first step if you are a residential client. Doctors will monitor your vitals 24/7, prescribe necessary medications, and generally assist you while the remainder of the alcohol is processed out by your body.
- Blackout period: If you are in residential treatment, detox will be followed by a period during which you may not leave the site for any reason or contact anyone outside of the facility. This communication blackout protects you from outside influences and/or behaviors that may sabotage your initial progress.
- 12-step program and therapy sessions: The next step for residential clients (and the first step for outpatient and IOP clients) is to begin the process of group and individual therapy and 12-step meetings. This is the heart of rehab, and, although we will do everything we can to meet your needs, your overall success depends on how hard you work during this phase.
- Sober living: If you are going through IOP or outpatient treatment or are about to be released from rehab, you may choose to live in one of our safe, substance-free sober living facilities. This kind of secure, supportive housing can help you stay on track while you transition slowly back to “normal” life.
- Aftercare: even after you leave our treatment center, we’ll provide you with all kinds of aftercare resources, from job search help to information about various support groups and therapy options.
