Agoura Hills Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Agoura Hills is a peaceful but energetic city of just over 20,000 residents. The town’s location 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles makes it a lovely bedroom community that’s also a gateway city to the Santa Monica Mountains. Agoura Hills offers plenty of recreational and cultural opportunities, including camping and a series of “Concerts in the Park” held all summer at Chumash Park. The “Bachelor” TV producers love Agoura Hills so much that they film their reality show at one of the city’s many mansions.

Agoura Hills hasn’t escaped the sorrows and loss suffered by people across California due to substance abuse, however. The misuse of alcohol, benzodiazepinecocaine and opioids is breaking up families and costing people jobs. Contrary to what many people believe, heroin and alcohol misuse are occurring in people across the entire economic spectrum.

Much of the blame for substance misuse disorder goes to a lack of education about how drugs work. With millions of opioid painkiller prescriptions written in the state, many people suffer the side effects of pain relief medication. They begin to misuse their painkillers, and they often find street sources for their opioids if their physicians cut off their prescriptions. When people understand how easy it is to misuse opioids and other narcotics, they begin to seek solutions rather than judging others. If you’re struggling with any kind of substance misuse in Agoura Hills, it isn’t too late to change your life. Numerous resources exist in and around the city that can help you beat your addiction.

Finding Help in Agoura Hills

Agoura Hills, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

When you’re choosing a recovery program to enter, it can help to factor in your resources and your living situation. You’ll also want to think about the different program types as well as how each might meet your needs. There are three basic types of treatment programs to aid recovery from substance misuse disorder. Each type of program has its benefits and drawbacks, so carefully consider what each type can offer.

Residential Treatment Programs

A residential treatment program is a refreshing choice for people who want to remove themselves from their everyday surroundings. In this type of inpatient treatment, you can focus completely on finding the underlying cause of your own issues and substance use. In this program type, you live at the treatment facility full-time. The programs are structured and disciplined, with a focus on self-awareness and behavioral changes to help you cope with your own stress and personal triggers in the future.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

Partial hospitalization programs Partial hospitalization programs are hybrid types of recovery treatment that allow people to attend residential-style recovery programs while remaining in an outpatient status. The daily discipline of the inpatient program is in force, so you’re held accountable to show up for classes and therapy just as in a residential program. You’re up early and spend all day in sessions or taking breaks between sessions. However, you can stay in your own home at night with your loved ones and participate in household activities in your own personal time.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient rehab are helpful for people who are fresh out of detox or inpatient rehab. In this type of recovery program, your time in therapy exams and classes is limited. You may continue to work or go to classes if you need to because you attend classes for several hours a week instead of undergoing immersive treatment as in residential treatment. People with limited resources often choose this method of recovery, integrating their treatment in with their daily life. Other people need to be close to dependents including older parents, children or pets, so they choose to remain outpatients as they undergo substance misuse treatment.

With some types of substance misuse, you can expect to experience withdrawals if you suddenly stop using. Stopping alcohol, heroin, benzodiazepines and many other substances can cause painful, debilitating symptoms in some people. However, it’s vital that you rid your body of the substances you’re using before meaningful recovery can take place. A dedicated detoxification (detox) program can be the safest, most private way to handle your symptoms. Healthcare professionals will supervise you and give you treatments and therapies to help ease you off drugs or alcohol. Expect detox to take two days to a week, depending on the substances you’ve been using.

A person may do hurtful things when he or she is in active addiction. It is often helpful if the loved ones of those who suffer from substance use disorder can gather with others who know what they are going through to have an open conversation. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon are two groups that offer this for these loved ones.
