Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in Fullerton

Fullerton Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Fullerton, California has a lot to be proud of. It’s the home of five high schools, the California State University-Fullerton campus and Fullerton College. The high number of students attending classes in Fullerton give the town the nickname “education city.” Culturally, the city has a lot to offer as well.

Fullerton is located near the rolling Coyote Hills in Orange County and sadly shares in Orange County’s problem with abuse of rugs and alcohol. The misuse of substances has hit the county hard. Between 2013 and 2015, hospitalizations for drug use disorders cost a total of $430 million in Orange County. But the human cost is more staggering. You may be struggling with substance misuse yourself and feel at a loss to find real assistance. You should know that the issue is affecting Californians from every background and neighborhood. Please realize you are not alone. Instead of feeling shame, understand that you have a health issue that needs prompt attention.

There are drug and alcohol treatment facilities available. You can find discreet, professional care while you enter rehab, detox and recovery programs. With hard work and commitment, you may overcome your substance use disorder, but only if you reach out for help.

    Fullerton Residential Treatment Programs

    In a residential treatment program, you check in as if you’re going on a vacation from your old life. Amenities and plans vary, but most residential programs offer you room and board during your rehab, and you stay at the facility for the duration of your treatment. You might engage in art, music and dance in some facilities, while other facilities have gyms and pools. A combination of classes, therapy and behavior modification may be used to aid you in your recovery efforts. Many patients find that the fresh environment helps them focus and find the determination to build a brighter future.

You can spend time with loved ones at night while you spend your days immersed in classes and counseling. Partial hospitalization programs treat you holistically, addressing your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual history. You may be enrolled in group or family therapy sessions to help you sort out your challenges and triggers.

    Fullerton Outpatient Treatment Programs

    When you enter an outpatient treatment program, you check in daily or several times a week with the facility or center administering your treatment. You may undergo medical testing, counseling and educational programs designed to help you remain in recovery. Outpatient treatment is an extra step many patients take after completing rehab or detox. Other patients with milder substance use disorders choose outpatient treatment so they can remain employed or attend college. Outpatient treatment requires discipline but is one way for busy people to enter recovery without completely rescheduling their lives.

Many people are unaware of their employee benefits and insurance coverage that cover your attendance at a rehab center. Check with your health insurance policy and your HR (or union) representative, if you have them, to learn about resources available to you when you want to enter recovery.

Fullerton Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

Many treatment centers expect patients to be drug and alcohol-free when they enter their programs, while others can help you get there once you start treatment. Eliminating drugs and alcohol from your system after you stop using is often best accomplished in the care of a professional healthcare setting. Many debilitating and uncomfortable symptoms are often part of the withdrawal process. The discomfort and fear can lead people to relapse when all they want to do is stop. When you enter a detox program, you have supervision and healing help to ease your pain and anxiety.

Whether you’ve just finished or you have yet to attend a drug rehab center, recovery meetings provide a safe space to find fellowship and support throughout your recovery.

Most organizations have materials and literature to help you cope with various uncomfortable or inconvenient aspects of recovery.
