Alcohol and Drug Rehab Services - Our Full Continuum of Care

At The Detox Center of Los Angeles, we provide inpatient detoxification and residential rehab services. This means that all of the alcohol and drug treatments we provide take place as you live inside our recovery center. Inpatient rehab is what most people think of when they hear that somebody has “gone to rehab” for substance abuse. At The Detox Center of Los Angeles, you may move into our treatment center, living inside 24 hours a day for alcohol detox or drug detox before moving into an in-house recovery program that includes education, therapy, groups, medical care, and more. Your program length will be customized as each person seeking drug and alcohol treatment in California will have unique needs.

Medical Detox is often the first step when quitting alcohol or drug use because the body is likely to produce uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms like pain, distress and anxiety, restlessness, and drug cravings that can be difficult to deal with on your own. At The Detox Center of LA, we provide medications, 24-hour care from doctors and nurses, and other treatments to get you through detox and on into rehab without suffering needlessly.

Inpatient rehab after medical detox is usually 20 to 30 days of intensive therapy and other care, with the option of family therapy, experiential treatments, and a variety of alternative and holistic treatments alongside evidence-based behavioral therapy, talk therapy, and group therapy.

Once you complete your time in your residential program, if you wish, we can help you connect with outpatient rehab treatment programs in your area. There are many types of outpatient rehab centers in California, with programs like partial hospitalization programs (PHP), intensive outpatient programs (IOP), or other customized outpatient treatment plans for drug and/or alcohol abuse treatment. You may also continue connecting with support and care through groups like:

  • 12-step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous
  • Alumni groups
  • SMART recovery groups
  • Group therapy
  • Sober living homes

These types of programs can help you stick to your relapse prevention program, remaining in long-term recovery during and after rehab. If you wish to transition from our inpatient facility into an outpatient rehab after you have completed your program, our team can connect you with an appropriate program in your area.

Drug Detox

The first step after admission to a drug addiction treatment plan is detoxification. The detox process is different for every person, and treatments may vary depending on your overall level of addiction and which substance(s) you have been using. For example, heroin detox is very different from cocaine or meth detox. It may also depend on:

  • How long have you been using drugs and alcohol
  • How much you were using at a time
  • Whether you were mixing substances together
  • Your age
  • Genetic and metabolic factors
  • Personal preferences and your recovery goals
  • Your physical health and mental health at the time of treatment

At The Detox Center of Los Angeles, we use a holistic approach to treatment to ensure the wellness of not only your physical body, but also your mind and your spirit as you detox. This means that we provide medical care, as well as therapy, counseling, behavioral health treatments, and holistic treatments as you detox inside our 100% sober rehab center to ensure you are as comfortable as possible, and to make sure you feel safe during your entire time with us.

Medical detox options are available for our patients in our California rehab center, with services like:

  • Round-the-clock medical care and oversight from a medical doctor and nurses to make sure you do not suffer or have any medical issues while detoxing such as seizures or high blood pressure
  • Prescription doses of medications are provided during your medical detox period to make sure you are comfortable, helping you avoid pain, anxiety, restlessness, aches, stomach issues (diarrhea, vomiting, etc.), and other common withdrawal symptoms. Common medications used include Gabapentin, Ativan, Valium, Seroquel, and
  • Trazodone.
  • The option for medication-assisted treatment programs for those who need a slow taper off of drugs like benzodiazepines or opioid drugs like oxycontin, heroin, fentanyl, or morphine
  • Dual diagnosis treatments for people with co-occurring mental health disorders alongside addiction
  • Healthy meals that were prepared by a private chef to ensure you have the proper nourishment your body needs as you detox
  • Therapy includes behavioral therapy and one-on-one counseling to begin to address the underlying issues that cause addiction like cognitive distortions, past trauma, and social issues. You will meet with your primary therapist once a day.
  • Holistic treatment plans to help you strengthen the body-mind connection, heal your body, and raise your spirits as your body removes harmful toxins from your system

Detox at The Detox Center of LA usually lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 days on average, using a holistic approach to healing that incorporates treatments for the body, mind, and spirit. Because we believe that family is one of the main motivators for people to get sober, we encourage family support, and after a mandatory blackout period we allow phone use at designated times each day. Parents of small children can use facetime throughout their treatment plan.

Drug Rehab

Detoxing is only the first step on the road to addiction recovery, and after you have completed your initial detox, you will move directly into a drug rehab program tailored specifically to your needs. The days in inpatient drug rehab are filled with therapy, groups, dual diagnosis treatment, medical appointments, and holistic care, providing the tools, support, and treatment you need to heal the underlying causes of your addiction as you build your strength and resilience, work on relapse prevention strategies, and overcome your addiction one day at a time.

An inpatient program at The Detox Center of Los Angeles is built based on your bio-psychosocial assessment which has analyzed your unique needs, allowing us to create a program that will work for you.

Amenities available to you include:

  • Fitness and yoga classes
  • Snacks are available at all times
  • Movie nights
  • An outside lounge area
  • Cornhole and basketball
  • Phone access at designated times
  • 24-hour access to medical care
  • A structured, safe environment
  • Knowledgeable and caring staff
  • Individualized treatment programs

Your comfort is paramount to your overall recovery success, so we will do all we can to ensure you are well-rested and feel safe as you work through your daily program. The days are busy, filled with drug addiction treatments, with plenty of free time to rest and recuperate in the evenings.
Our treatment center’s longer-term medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs are available for those who are ceasing use of drugs like heroin or other opioid drugs, and benzodiazepine drugs. In a MAT program, you will receive all the same counseling, therapy, and other treatment options as everybody else, with the addition of prescription medications when needed to help you deal with long-term difficult withdrawal symptoms and cravings, with a slow tapering off of medications that usually lasts for weeks or months. Common medications provided in MAT rehab centers include:

  • Benzodiazepine tapers
  • Gabapentin
  • Trazodone
  • Suboxone
  • Subutex
  • Seroquel
  • Ativan
  • Valium

This is different from acute medical detox, as it can last well beyond your detox and inpatient treatment inside our rehab centers. For those in MAT programs we will connect you to sober-living centers, outpatient rehab centers in California, and other recovery resources that will continue to provide the medication management, treatments and support you will need to taper off the use of these drugs

Alcohol Detox

It may be surprising to learn that alcohol is one of the most dangerous substances to quit. Because alcohol is legal, it is socially acceptable, and it is seen almost everywhere in the United States from TV commercials to the corner store to your grandfather’s liquor cabinet, alcoholism runs rampant throughout this country, and not many people realized the extent of the damage this substance can do to your body, your mind, and your spirit over time.

Quitting drinking is not easy, especially if you have been drinking for a long time, or have been drinking large amounts. Your brain chemistry and your body have become accustomed to having alcohol in your system, and to quit cold turkey would mean withdrawal symptoms that can range from moderate to severe, or even deadly. People can die from seizures and delirium tremens (“the DTs”). Because of this, quitting drinking on your own is never recommended.

Common alcohol detox symptoms include:

  • Anxiety and mood swings
  • Tremors
  • Uncontrollable sweating
  • Difficulty sleeping and/or nightmares
  • Increased heart rate
  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Confusion or brain fog
  • More serious withdrawal may also include:
  • Auditory, visual, and tactile hallucinations
  • High fever
  • Confusion and agitation
  • Seizures
  • Brain damage
  • Death

At The Detox Center of LA, our medical detox program for alcohol treatment can provide you with the medical oversight and care you need to ensure serious symptoms like seizures do not overcome you, they can help you rest, take away alcohol cravings and anxiety, and ensure you do not experience pain, hallucinations, or other distressing symptoms. This will allow you to begin your rehabilitation program with a clear head, looking toward a brighter future as you deal with the emotions, thoughts, behaviors, relationships, and psychiatric issues that caused you to drink in the first place.

Alcohol Rehab

Our recovery center is a safe place to rehabilitate after completing alcohol detox. We ensure that each patient is not simply physically well, but we also take care of each patient’s emotional and mental wellness, as we believe in holistic healing. You are not simply “an alcoholic”. You are a person deserving of respect and dignity at all levels of care, and your comfort is important.

Most people stay in our rehab facility for 20 to 30 days of residential addiction recovery treatments before moving back home or into a sober living home (with or without moving on to one of our partner outpatient addiction treatment centers, depending on individual needs). Each person’s program is customizable, and a longer stay is possible if needed. At times, people dealing with co-occurring disorders, or physical health issues, or those in MAT programs may wish to stay inside our treatment facility for long-term rehab.

Like heroin and benzos, alcohol also has a medically assisted treatment program. Although the medications in your MAT program do not help you through your detox, they can help you stay off the alcohol and take away most of your risk of relapsing by removing physical cravings while making drinking alcohol an extremely unpleasant experience. This way, even though the real world is filled with temptations to drink, you will not be tempted back to alcohol abuse. At The Detox Center of Los Angeles, if you are in a medication-assisted program, we can connect you to outpatient treatment centers that offer intensive outpatient programs that can help you transition back into your life as you continue receiving the therapy, counseling, and health care you need.

In inpatient alcohol use disorders treatment, we will help you to build new healthy habits, reframe the way you think and feel, and provide plenty of relapse prevention tools and distress tolerance skills that will help you for the rest of your life, long after rehab is over.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

When you stay in our inpatient addiction treatment center, you will live inside a comfortable room, in a 6-bed apartment with in-unit laundry facilities, housekeeping services, and meals cooked by a private chef ensuring you have proper nutrition as you recover from drug and alcohol addiction. You will live inside our center in California full-time, receiving customized substance abuse treatments that will best suit your needs. We use solution-based, trauma-informed methods that help each client build their self-acceptance as we help you heal the underlying causes of alcohol and drug abuse.

The benefits of an inpatient rehab program for alcohol addiction include:

  • Being removed from external influences as you live inside our 100% sober facility. Alcohol is everywhere in our society, and the less temptation you face as you heal, the easier it will be to avoid relapsing
  • Having the time away from life’s everyday stress and to-do lists, so you can focus on your own wellness and healing without needing to worry about what other people are doing
  • Being in a rigid and structured environment that will teach you new healthy routines, with enough time to truly incorporate them into your life, like a healthy sleep schedule, establishing an exercise routine, and eating nutritious meals regularly
  • Being surrounded by supportive people all day, every day. You will not have people trying to pressure you into having a drink or questioning your motives. Everybody at rehab has the same goal as you.
  • If you have a co-occurring mental illness, staying inside a rehab facility will allow you to begin psychiatric medication under full medical watch, as you get the therapy and care you need to get your mental health under control
  • You will have free-time, amenities, and activities all geared toward health, wellness, and sobriety, so you can learn new ways to spend your time and enjoy yourself as a drug- and alcohol-free person

Residential Alcohol Rehab

At The Detox Center of Los Angeles, we offer personalized care in our residential rehab programs with specialized programs that will address your unique needs, not only physical and chemical dependence, but also your social, emotional, psychological, behavioral, and practical needs.

We know that many of our patients have been through hard times, and many have experienced violence, assault, traumatic encounters, health issues and problems with authority figures or the law. Drug and alcohol addiction treatments can be difficult and sometimes scary, and our team will do all we can to ensure you are not put through anything that will re-traumatize you.

Our team provides trauma-informed care in all residential treatment plans, ensuring each patient feels safe not only physically but also emotionally as you go through your addiction treatment for alcohol abuse. This includes:

  • Open, transparent decision-making, and keeping you up to date on all progress and plans
  • Answering your questions truthfully, and not making you feel ashamed or stupid for asking a question
  • Getting your consent before administering any treatment or medications
  • Building a trusting relationship and then working every day to keep your trust

Another important issue in many people’s drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs is mental health. At The Detox Center of Los Angeles, we have integrated dual diagnosis treatment plans for anybody who is suffering from a substance use disorder along with mental illnesses or mental health disorders like:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Schizoaffective disorder
  • Depressive disorders
  • Eating disorder
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Impulse control disorder
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Grief and loss
  • Codependency
  • Anger issues

We perform a full psychiatric evaluation upon each patient’s arrival to determine which treatments will be most effective for a whole-patient approach to healing, and treating physical and psychological ailments at the same time in a comprehensive treatment program.

We also provide case management services to help you with any practical issues you may be experiencing in your life. The goal is to set you up for success, and this means we can help you with FMLA paperwork, legal issues, life skills, employment skills, finding a sober living home in your area, or moving into an outpatient rehab after residential treatment.

Prescription Drug Rehab

Drug addictions do not always involve illegal street drugs. There are many prescription drugs that have the potential for abuse and addiction. At The Detox Center of Los Angeles, we treat all substance use disorders, including prescription drug addictions, through a combination of therapy, medical care, holistic treatments, and education for a whole-patient approach to healing. Commonly abused prescription drugs we can help with in our medically assisted treatment programs include:

  • Benzodiazepine, sedative, and barbiturate drugs (ex. Ativan, Primidone, Xanax, Valium, Phenobarbitol)
  • Stimulant drugs (ex. Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Dexedrine, and Metadate)
  • Opiate drugs, opioids, and prescription painkillers (ex. Oxycontin, methadone, Percocet, morphine, and Dilaudid)

Even when these medications and others are used as prescribed, over time the body develops a physical dependence, causing withdrawal symptoms when you try to stop using them. This dependence, if not treated, can lead to addiction. In our treatment facility, we can help provide a slow taper off medications, get you through your detox period and move forward in treatment in a positive trajectory toward a healthy sober life free from the shackles of substance use disorders.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment

Although we are an inpatient treatment facility, your rehab program does not need to end when your residential program ends. We will set you up with a case worker who will work with you to find an outpatient rehab program near you that offers the care and programs you need to achieve long-term sobriety.

Outpatient programs take many forms, including intensive outpatient programs (IOP), partial hospitalization programs (PHP), and other programs that can be scheduled around your work, home, and school life so you can transition back to your life at your own pace, with full support, connections to peer groups and alumni support, and a safe place to turn as you return to everyday activities.

Outpatient addiction treatment centers provide consistent reinforcement of the skills you learned in rehab, allowing you to work on life skills and healthy habits as you get back to work, return home to your loved ones, and begin to pick up your life where you left off as a newly sober individual. With the skills you will learn inside our treatment facility and the long-term support of outpatient care programs, you will have the individualized treatment you need, for as long as you want it.

IOP Rehab

An Intensive outpatient program (IOP) is an outpatient treatment that is delivered on a flexible schedule, often in the evenings, mornings, or on weekends, so as to allow you the option of working a part-time or full-time job, attending college classes, or resume your ordinary role in the household, while still getting part-time support, continued therapy, and other evidence-based treatment to keep you on track. Family programs, behavioral health treatments, dual diagnosis programs, and relapse prevention programs are often provided.

IOP programs are beneficial as they provide the opportunity to use your newly learned rehab programming in real-life situations, with full professional support throughout the week. They often cost less than inpatient rehab programming does, and you have the option of living at home with full support from loved ones, friends, and family. It also disrupts your lifeless and helps maintain your privacy, as you will not need to disclose your medical condition to your employer or take a medical leave if you do not wish to do so. Overall, in an IOP, you will have more control over your schedule with more freedom, which may not be ideal if you do not have an environment to return to that is sober-friendly. You will also be exposed to more situations that may trigger cravings or encourage substance abuse.

PHP Rehab

A partial hospitalization program is another type of outpatient addiction treatment program, but with more of a time commitment. If you are recovering from a more severe addiction, need varied types of treatments including holistic care and exercise programs, or have co-occurring mental health conditions, a PHP may be a good first step to take after inpatient alcohol or drug rehab.

Partial hospitalization outpatient programs are more intensive than IOP, but less than inpatient addiction recovery. In the PHP you will live at home or in a sober residence, and visit rehab an average of five days per week. Visits vary in duration depending on the treatment center’s program options, often for four to eight hours per day. Treatments go beyond therapy sessions, with more life skills training, nutrition coaching, and other physical, spiritual, and mental health care. PHP provides stability, support, and consistency, reducing the risk of relapse after inpatient substance abuse treatment.

Partial hospitalization addiction recovery programs are a good choice for people who:

  • Have completed a residential addiction and mental health program but have a high risk of relapsing
  • Have difficulty managing cravings
  • Have faced severe episodes of addiction and/or overdose in the past
  • Are still experiencing withdrawal symptoms
  • Are in a medication-assisted treatment program

Sober Living & Aftercare

Sober living homes are usually group home environments a person can move into during or after addiction treatment. They have strict rules surrounding substance abuse, and many also have curfews, rules around chores and respecting other guests, and what you should be doing with your time when you are not at home. Most require you to have a job and/or be in active treatment programs as you live there. A sober living home sets strong boundaries to help you stay away from drugs and alcohol, allowing you to live a normal life and have a safe and sober place to come home to at the end of the day.

At The Detox Center of LA, your case manager can help set you up with a sober place to live after you complete your inpatient treatment plan if you need it, along with outpatient rehab and other aftercare programs and groups including 12-step and peer support groups. Our aim is to set you up for long-term success and we will help you get the treatment and support you need to achieve long-lasting recovery.

Alumni Support

Alumni support groups are important to people leaving rehab, and at The Detox Center of LA our team will ensure you have the long-term support you need after residential treatment. Drug and alcohol rehab alumni are people who have been where you are today. They have gone through detox, rehab, and have been through the first few days, weeks, or months after rehab, and can help you get through it as well. Some services that alumni support groups around the country offer include:

  • Someone to talk to about returning to “normal” life after rehab
  • Providing information, resources, and education not only to you but also friends and family
  • Helping you out when you feel nervous or overwhelmed
  • Hosting activities and events to provide a fun way to get together with other sober individuals
  • Hosting workshops and meetings, including support meetings, volunteer opportunities, and nature experiences to help with skill building, work skills, social skills, and coping tools
  • Helping with practical issues like finding housing, doctors care, therapists, work, etc.
  • Ensuring you never feel alone in your recovery, and helping you stay connected to people who “get it”
  • Giving you the opportunity to give back and be of service to your own community by helping others
