We have an outside lounge area, basketball court, cornhole, and fitness classes. There is yoga and meditation, and you can join us for movie nights on the big screen.
We believe that family support is incredibly important and motivating for many patients, so after a mandatory blackout period, you may use your phone at designated times. We also allow parents of small children to facetime.

It is important for anybody quitting drinking to do so under the supervision of a medical professional. Alcohol withdrawal can become serious and even deadly due to serious withdrawal symptoms like seizures and delirium tremens, so checking in to a residential treatment center for a medically assisted detox is the safest method of alcohol detox.
A medical alcohol detox program will help you as you will be in a comfortable and safe, sober facility for the full duration of detox, ensuring you are away from the substances and triggers that may cause a relapse. You will have 24-hour medical oversight and care, not only to keep you safe, but to also provide prescription doses of medications that can keep you comfortable, and to make real-time adjustments to doses and treatments, and monitor your nutritional intake and hydration as well, ensuring your detox progresses to plan.
You will also have dual diagnosis treatments integrated into your detox protocols if you are suffering from a co-occurring mental health disorder alongside your alcohol use disorder. Treating both issues at the same time in the same place will ensure you can heal, get your physical and mental health under control, and escape the cycle of drinking and drug use to escape symptoms of mental illness to be able to move forward in life.
Feeling safe and cared for is an important part of any detox plan, because the process can feel scary and cause intense anxiety, emotional distress, and pain. Knowing you are in the hands of caring, non-judgmental professionals will make all the difference in your treatment.
Detoxing from drugs can be extremely difficult, painful, and cause distress. Depending on the substance you are trying to quit, it can also become dangerous to your health to try and quit drugs on your own. For this reason, a medication-assisted detox is recommended. At The Detox Center LA, your detox will be tailored to best suit your needs. Not only does each drug or combination of drugs cause unique withdrawal symptoms, but each patient also has unique health issues, mental wellness needs, and behavioral issues that need to be considered. Your emotional health and your comfort are important, and alongside medical care and medications, we also have counseling and tailored dual diagnosis plans that will ensure you get through your detox as quickly and easily as possible.
At The Detox Center LA (our treatment center in Los Angeles), you will move into our residential drug rehab center for medical detox, followed by inpatient rehab. Your individualized treatment plan will include:
Alcohol rehab at The Detox Center of LA is a combination of evidence-based treatments and holistic therapeutic approaches that are solution-based for alcohol treatment. This means we use trauma-informed methodologies to help each client build their self-acceptance, their safety, and their self-awareness, incorporating behavior therapy, physical health care and mental wellness practices to address the physical, social, psychological, behavioral, and emotional issues behind drug and alcohol addiction.
You will move directly into alcohol rehab after you are stabilized through our detox protocols, and once your inpatient rehab program has been completed with us, you may move into outpatient treatment through one of our partner outpatient rehab centers Los Angeles residents can count on. This may include an intensive outpatient program, a partial hospitalization program, or other outpatient drug rehab or alcohol rehab plan that suits your lifestyle and plans for the future as you integrate back into your life as a sober individual. There are also telehealth and virtual options available at some locations. You may live at home or in a sober living home during outpatient rehab.
Inpatient drug rehab is customized to best suit each individual. We offer clinical assessments with the option of a biopsychosocial assessment before beginning drug detox to ensure that each of our clients gets the exact type of treatment they need. Some of the programs we offer include:
Rehabs in Los Angeles vary in pricing, as each facility offers different types of services, programs, and facilities. It depends on where you are going, whether you are in inpatient treatment or outpatient rehab, whether you need mental health treatment or tailored medical care, and which medications you are given. It also depends on your individual insurance coverage and whether your insurance company works with the addiction treatment centers you are considering.
Call our treatment center in Los Angeles to verify insurance coverage and to find out more about how to pay for treatment. Our team is standing by to help you get the treatment you need in any way we can.
The length of time you spend in detox depends on what you are detoxing from, your physical and mental health at the time of detox, genetic factors, your metabolism, how long you have been using drugs and alcohol, and how much/how frequently you were using these substances. For this reason, each person’s detox program is customized to best suit their unique needs.
In The Detox Center of LA addiction treatment program, there is an initial 5-to-10-day long medication assisted treatment regimen, which will get you through your initial detox, and then we will transition you into 20 to 30 days of intensive therapy and treatments for substance use disorders in residential care.
The average rehab program at The Detox Center LA lasts for a minimum of 20 to 30 days, which is also known as short-term rehab. It takes an average of one month to be able to gain new long-term habits and behaviors, and in a 30-day rehab program you will heal old trauma and emotional pain as you gain new recovery skills, relapse prevention tools, and other skills you will need to be able to live a drug- and alcohol-free life. Inpatient rehab in our recovery center also involves intense therapy including group therapy, one-on-one therapy, experiential therapy and family therapy, so you can address the underlying causes of addiction, improving self-esteem and life satisfaction, while reducing the chances that you will turn back to substance abuse in the future.
Longer-term residential treatment plans are available for those who need additional time in inpatient care for dual diagnosis, medical issues, or severe addiction issues. If you have a high risk of relapsing, or are still experiencing cravings, you may need a 60- or 90-day stay in rehab, as the longer time spent in inpatient treatment programs, the less likely it is for relapse to occur.
After inpatient treatment, clients may also wish to join outpatient programs including an intensive outpatient program to remain connected to medical care, groups, and therapy for an easier transition back to your normal home, work, and social life.
Yes, your insurance will have coverage for rehab. Depending on your insurance plan and the facility you choose some, if not all of your treatments and medications may be covered by insurance. It is best to check before committing to a treatment plan so you know how much you may need to pay out-of-pocket. Call The Detox Center Los Angeles, so we can verify your insurance and let you know what to expect before you begin treatment.
Alongside the evidence-based, western medicine approaches to treatment, at The Detox Center Los Angeles, we also provide sessions of yoga, meditation, art therapy, and other creative endeavors to help restore the body, mind, and spirit in a holistic approach to healing.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a specialized detox plan for drugs and alcohol that includes an integrated combination of medical and psychiatric care, along with medications to keep you comfortable and to prevent serious issues like seizures, high blood pressure, pain, and anxiety. Therapy and counseling, along with holistic treatments are also often introduced early into the process to ensure you feel emotionally safe as well throughout your detox plan. MAT plans will ensure no patient suffers needlessly during drug and alcohol detox, improving overall success rates of long-term sobriety.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a behavioral health individual therapy, focused on learning and developing practical tools that help patients recognize and change unhelpful thoughts and learned patterns of behavior that contribute to anxiety, stress, and addiction. By managing these personal choices and actions, patients will feel better, find new ways to cope with stress, and understand the ‘why’ behind their actions.
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a behavioral therapy that teaches people to live in the moment, learn new and healthy ways to manage stress and emotions, and improve relationships in their lives. Clients in DBT will learn to replace negative behaviors with positive ones, and live in the moment through mindfulness and emotional regulation. Distress tolerance therapy is a type of DBT to help patients learn to manage their own responses to distress.
Rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) is part of an individualized treatment plan, teaching the idea that perception determines thoughts and feelings, and that there is no good or bad situation. It just depends on how we see it. Clients will learn ‘rational’ ways of thinking that challenge negativity and core beliefs, providing healthier ways to handle stress.
Dual diagnosis is the treatment of a mental health disorder alongside a substance use disorder, at the same time, in the same integrated treatment program. There are several interconnected facets of addiction and mental illness that cannot be separated, so treating these co-occurring disorders together through therapy and medication (when needed) is the most effective method of breaking the cycle of addiction. Common comorbid mental health issues found with addiction include:
At The Detox Center LA, we have a relapse prevention group that is skills-based. Using a cognitive behavioral approach, therapists will help each client identify triggers, issues, stressors, and situations that will most likely put them at risk of relapse, and then teach useful and practical ways to stop the process before it starts.
Knowing to expect a trigger during a holiday or on a stressful date, or knowing yourself well enough to realize being bored alone at home may trigger a relapse is important, and you will be prepared to deal with the negative feelings and struggle with a relapse prevention plan that may include:
Holistic and alternative treatments are an excellent means of addressing the whole person when it comes to addiction. You are not just a series of cravings inside a robot, you are somebody with an entire lifetime of experiences, traumas, emotions, thoughts, and spirituality that requires a holistic approach to treatment. Common alternative holistic treatments in rehab include:
These types of treatments offer stress relief, peace of mind, and new ways of connecting the mind and body that are helpful for anybody in recovery.
Acupuncture is the insertion of tiny, hair-thin needles into specific pressure points on the body. It is a type of traditional Chinese medicine that provides stress relief and feelings of overall wellness and better energy flow. Stimulating certain points on the body in this way can reduce cortisol and balance dopamine levels, which may decrease withdrawal symptoms and cravings during detox.
Yoga is a mind and body practice that combines physical movements and breathing with meditation practices, with benefits that include increased stamina and strength, stress reduction, increased self-awareness, increased self-esteem, pain relief, better sleep, and emotional healing. Those who do yoga often show an overall improvement in their health and wellness. Becoming more attuned to the body during rehab will create a self-awareness, helping clients gain better self-control, and take ownership for how they feel in their own body and mind. Yoga also provides a clarity of mind, and a calming sensation.
Meditation is a type of awareness training, learning to observe your thoughts without judgment, and better understand them, while increasing mindfulness. This is a practice that is helpful in relieving symptoms of withdrawal, cravings, and triggers, because it significantly reduces stress, improves mood and creativity, reduces symptoms of PTSD, reduces fear, increases brain activity and focus, helps with emotional stability, and helps clients sleep better. Meditation helps those dealing with post-acute long-term withdrawal symptoms from drugs like alcohol and opioid drugs and reduces the overall risk of relapse.
At The Detox Center LA, our inpatient rehab programs include 40 to 47 hours of group therapy per week, with clients coming together under the supervision of therapists to discuss topics and issues, gain insights, brainstorm, and improve communication skills. Some of the groups available at THCLA include:
There is even a nightly wrap-up group, where clients gather at the end of the day to identify the positive ways they have used new recovery skills and tools throughout the day to manage difficult situations and emotions, helping each other find new methods of recovery that work.
One-on-one therapy is individual treatment that takes place through conversations between the client and a therapist, who meet and discuss life issues, anything that is causing stress or difficulty in life, and work on solutions to problems together. A therapist will provide insight into issues, along with strategies and tools to work through the underlying causes of addiction, improve overall quality of life, and to prevent relapse in the future.
Family therapy is a customized, often short-term therapy that can involve the entire family or just a few members, with a focus on resolving issues, improving communication, and in the case of the family of an addicted person, learning how to best support their loved one with their treatment. Family therapy can strengthen family bonds and resolve stressful situations, creating a stronger overall support system at home.
Trauma-informed therapy is the process of taking each patient’s history and background into account during treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. Therapists will know the signs of trauma and avoid triggering patients by obtaining consent, answering questions truthfully, building and maintaining trust, and empowering each client in their own treatments. Clients should feel emotionally safe at all times while in addiction treatment.
During substance abuse treatment, exercise and physical activity including going to the gym, playing sports, doing yoga, or even going for a walk can improve sleep, decrease stress, increase self-esteem and energy levels, and provide you with a healthy distraction from cravings and unhealthy urges. Joining a team or class can also give added structure and community connectivity to your life.
Experiential therapy is offered at The Detox Center LA as one of our rehab options. The use of expressive tools like arts and crafts, playing music, or role-playing, for example, can be used alongside therapy to help the patient focus on the present while re-experiencing past trauma. This will help the brain reprocess a psychologically disturbing event alongside neutral or positive emotions, providing stress relief and a lessening of emotional reactivity.
