Finding Help in Garden Grove

Garden Grove, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

When it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, there are many options available in the Garden Grove 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 Garden Grove

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.

Garden Grove 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 for Garden Grove

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.

Every type of drug treatment program or alcohol treatment program has positive and negative factors. It is important for individuals to do research on the treatment program they are considering. This will ensure that the individual makes the best selection for his or her needs and lifestyle. There are good options for drug rehab and alcohol rehab in California. However, there are occasions when distance-based facilities may provide the best option. Care centers located outside of California give individuals the ability to remove themselves from negative environments and focus directly on receiving appropriate care.

Garden Grove Detox Centers

When misusing drugs or alcohol, the brain and other organs of the body can change processing patterns. It is important to rid the body of the chemicals it has become dependent on as a first step to a healthier lifestyle. With the health aspects of this process, it is helpful to have professional care throughout this journey. Drug and alcohol detox centers are staffed by medical professionals that will monitor all your body’s vital functions to ensure the detoxing process occurs safely and with compassion. The nurturing environment offered while staying within a detoxing center provides a positive beginning for a rewarding journey going forward.

Because each drug or alcohol user’s needs are different, the type of therapy is an individual choice. When you’re ready to take the first step, know that your choice will be the first step toward a future you can forge without dependence on drugs or alcohol, and that your future is brighter for that.

Recovery Meetings Near You

After completing drug rehab, the next step for successful recovery is often a self-help group such as AA or SMART Recovery. For many people, these recovery meetings are a vital component of their aftercare. A review of several studies of self-help meetings showed that continual attendance at such meetings is associated with longer term abstinence. Frequent attendance was also associated with a more successful result. Groups meet worldwide, too, so you can attend when traveling as well.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous, founded in 1935 in Akron, Ohio, is the original recovery group. It has nearly 2 million members in nearly 110,000 groups worldwide. Meetings are free and, of course, anonymous. They offer fellowship and support as members share stories and follow a 12-step path that includes coming to terms with the alcohol addiction, turning over that addiction to a higher power, making amends to those who have been hurt by the addiction, and committing to supporting others newer to the process. Newcomers are matched with a sponsor, and those who have attended meetings for a while may reach out to others as sponsors. Alcoholics Anonymous has many meetings in the area; these are just a few.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Like AA, Narcotics Anonymous follows a 12-step program and functions similarly. Many NA meetings are open to those who use different drugs; a few are geared specifically toward the problems of a particular drug, so check with the group beforehand. NA was founded in 1953, and has 63,000 meetings worldwide in 132 countries.

SMART Recovery Meetings

SMART Recovery is a newer idea than NA or AA. It is for users of alcohol or drugs, and appeals to those who want a more science-based, rational approach than a spiritual one. SMART stands for Self-Management and Rational Recovery. Those who attend meetings are first invited to consider the disadvantages of using, and compare those with any disadvantages. Then, they work through motivational strategies to cope with the urge to use as they “change self-defeating thinking, emotions, and actions; and to work towards long-term satisfaction and quality of life.” A 2013 review of SMART Recovery found it effective in helping people recover from problem drinking. The SMART Recovery website offers online support and meetings.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

As the person in recovery is attending meetings and learning new ways of coping, her loved ones may also be feeling the changes. Self-help meetings for family and friends can offer fellowship and a way to adapt as the patient experiences the changes that come with recovery. Al-Anon, a family group for those affected by alcohol, and Nar-Anon, for those coping with drug use in the family, both have meetings in the area.
