Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in Brea

Brea Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Brea, CA is in Orange County, about 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Brea is popular for its public art program that includes more than 140 pieces of artwork. The city is also popular for its downtown shopping area as well as its shopping choices at the Brea Mall. Several top schools exist in the area, many having received awards.

Despite the city’s appeal, it is not immune to the effects of alcohol and drug addiction. Drug overdoses in Orange County are now at their highest rate in a decade, causing concern in the community. Most of those overdoses are due to opioids; however, other substances are of big concern as well. Officials are looking for ways to lower drug and alcohol abuse in the Brea area and throughout Orange County.

The stigma of addiction may prevent some from asking for help. However, individuals need to understand that drug addiction and alcoholism are not moral failings; they are diseases, much like high blood pressure or diabetes. These illnesses can affect anyone, no matter his or her economic or social status. The Brea community is looking for ways to lower the statistics and find help for those who need it.

Finding Help in Brea

Brea, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

Brea is not alone in the rising number of addicted individuals. Opioids, alcohol and other drugs cause issues in the community. As is the case in cities and towns across the country, addiction has led to an increase in crime, traffic accidents and overdoses.

Many addictions began with prescription use after injury or a surgery. These individuals then seek out opioids after the prescriptions run out, which can lead to heroin misuse. Fortunately, there is help for those looking to overcome addiction. If you are seeking help at a rehab center, there are several options available. It’s important to make yourself familiar with each type of program and what it offers, so you can make the choice that is right for you.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    These programs require that the individual stay at the facility throughout the duration of treatment. Centers use multidisciplinary methods that include detox, therapy and aftercare. During hospitalization, patients participate in both individual and group therapy sessions. The therapy sessions will help to identify the triggers that lead to drug and alcohol misuse. Many facilities encourage patients to seek healthy alternatives to help avoid relapse. These alternatives may include sports, nutrition, yoga and educational services. Most facilities will recommend a 12-step program to guide patients through recovery.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs, often referred to as outpatient, offer many of the benefits of residential treatment programs, without the time commitment. Individuals still spend a large portion of their day in therapy, but do not stay overnight. These programs can offer more privacy and keep patients engaged in their everyday life. Patients will have access to many of the same resources available in residential treatment programs.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    These programs allow individuals to continue with work, school and family commitments while seeking help. Individuals are not required to make as great of a time commitment. Patients will have access to some of the same resources available in residential treatment, such as therapy and healthy alternatives. Outpatient treatment also offers more privacy. Many of these programs encourage patients to continue with aftercare programs to ensure they stay on the right path to recovery.

It’s important for individuals to weigh the pros and cons for each treatment option to find the one that best meets their needs. Recovery takes dedication and commitment, only achieved if the individual is comfortable with the treatment chosen.

Detox Centers

The first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem. You may have come to this realization after a major incident in your life. However, no matter how you came to the decision to seek help, it is important to follow the steps to recovery to have a sober life. As you begin your journey, it is important to start with a detox program. You must clear your body of the substances that your body has become dependent upon.

There are many options at detox centers. It is important to start the detox process with an experienced medical professional, to ensure that you detox safely. The side effects from withdrawal can be debilitating when done without medical guidance.

Recovery Meetings Near You

It is possible to free yourself from addiction. It just takes the right program along with dedication and determination. Aftercare programs are an important part of the recovery process. After all, everyone needs support from time to time. Just like choosing a drug rehab center that is right for you, you must also choose an aftercare program that fits your needs. There are several programs to consider, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and SMART Recovery.
