Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in Culver City

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.

in 2015

Luckily, the number of fentanyl-related deaths in Los Angeles County have decreased since the latest 2015 statistics. Between 2011 and 2013, there were 40 annual opioid deaths in Los Angeles County and that number jumped to 62 in 2014 before its decrease to 46 in 2015. This trend of overdose death does not have to continue because there is help.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    For patients who may need to remove themselves from a toxic atmosphere at home, an inpatient residential treatment program may be best. An inpatient facility is a temporary residency with 24/7 care where the process of rehab starts with detoxification. A patient will receive rigorous group and individual therapy along with participating in sports, nutritional classes, stress control and other activities all meant to give the individual tools and techniques that will help reduce the risk of relapse once he returns to daily life outside the facility.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    A partial hospitalization program is the best of both worlds, meaning that a patient goes home every night, but spends several hours every day in intensive therapy and other activities. Although there is more autonomy in a partial hospitalization program, a patient receives much of the same type of care that an inpatient program provides.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    If you or a family member think a less restrictive program will be most beneficial, then an outpatient program may be best. Outpatient means a patient sleeps at home, but attends mandatory meetings, activities and therapy sessions for a prescribed number of times a week. This option is best for those who need to maintain work, family or school responsibilities on a day-to-day basis. A highly supportive home atmosphere is necessary for an outpatient program to be successful.

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.
