Inpatient Rehab and Detox in Culver City, California

Culver City Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Although Culver City is home to Sony Pictures Studio and other film and television companies, the city has more to offer outside of the film industry. Sunsets draw throngs of locals to Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook every day. The Museum of Jurassic Technology’s eccentric exhibits inspire the curious. The legendary Culver City Hotel, once owned at two different times by Charlie Chaplin and John Wayne, is one of the towns vibrant historic landmarks.

Behind the scenes of Culver City and throughout Los Angeles County, there’s a growing problem with substance abuse, accounting for the growth of the number of rehab treatment programs and sober houses in the area. The culprit seems to be fentanyl, a powerful painkiller produced in China, bought by drug dealers who lace it into heroin. Even a few grains of it can be lethal. In early 2017, it was reported that young adults from all walks of life and economic backgrounds flooded the hospital emergency rooms steadily because of heroin.

In June of 2017, Los Angeles County started a new program to combat opioid overdose deaths, arming county sheriff departments with thousands of nasal anti-opioid naloxone sprays to administer to drug users who may be in urgent need of the drug. Although naloxone may now be more accessible in Los Angeles County, you can avoid needing the spray by seeking help for your substance addiction.

Finding Help in Culver City

Culver City, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

When it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, there are many options available in the Culver City area. Before you can start researching appropriate facilities, however, you need to familiarize yourself with the different levels of treatment. Most facilities offer three different treatment programs for those who are seeking treatment for substance use disorder. The level you need will largely depend on factors like the specific substance you are addicted to, whether or not you need detox and your history with addiction.

Residential Treatment Programs

In a residential treatment program, the patient will stay in the facility 24 hours a day, and he or she will have access to healthcare professionals during that time. A residential treatment program typically lasts somewhere between 30 and 90 days, though there are some programs that are shorter or longer.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

In a partial hospitalization program (PHP), the patient will be in the facility for 6 to 8 hours during the day, and he or she will be permitted to go home in the evenings, assuming he or she has access to a safe and stable environment.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

In an outpatient treatment program, the patient will be at the facility for 10 to 20 hours during the week. This may be every day in the mornings or 2 to 3 days for a longer period, but patients in this program are still able to work.

There are pros and cons to each program based on your needs. Take time to create a plan that will be most effective for you or a family member, but remember that recovery is an investment in yourself and your long-term physical and mental health. When considering drug or alcohol treatment facilities, don’t rush to decide where to go until you understand which program will be most healing for your situation.

Detox Centers

First, it’s always best to admit that you may have a problem with substance use and that it may be putting your life, or your family’s life, in danger. You may not feel like sobriety is possible, but it’s critical to understand that detoxing will help you think more clearly about your options that will give you control over your life. Asking for help to gain control over your life and starting with detox is a signal of your strength. Embrace it and know you are not alone on this journey as there are many supportive resources.

Drug or alcohol detox programs will help start you or a relative on the path to sobriety. Detoxing will help remove the toxic substances from your body, but it may be best to go through the process with a medical professional who understands the physical discomfort you may experience during a detox. There are residential and outpatient detox centers, and each will support you with your plan for sober living.
