La Habra Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

The charming town of La Habra, California is situated just a half-hour drive southeast of Los Angeles and at the northernmost tip of Orange County. Known for its pristine neighborhoods, lush vegetation and perfect weather, La Habra is a popular destination for residents and year-round tourists. La Habra got its name from early Spanish explorers who knew it as the “Pass Through the Hills” on the way to the Puente Hills area. Today La Habra is a thriving town known for its fine museums, golf courses, theater, fine dining and many outdoor activities.

The haze of substance abuse is taking its toll on La Habra, though, just as it is on many towns across the country. The misuse of prescription drugs is especially rampant in the Orange County area with the use of heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana declining over the past ten years. Because the narcotics being used are prescription medications, there is a false belief that the highs a user gets is safe but nothing could be further from the truth. Drug misuse is especially poignant when it affects kids; parents and authorities in Orange County are very concerned. Young people easily get access to prescription drugs, which they consider party drugs, and they become addicted.

If any of this sounds familiar, please know that there is hope. Awareness grows and new initiatives are organized to educate and help these kids escape the grip of drug misuse. Anyone who wants to leave their substance addiction can find many treatment options in La Habra and the surrounding Orange County.

You’re not alone in this struggle.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    For people who have severe substance misuse disorders or have been addicted for a long time, treatment in a residential program will probably be the most beneficial. The process will start with detox to eliminate offending substances from the body. From there, patients receive 24/7 medical care to help with withdrawal symptoms. They also get caring support from addiction specialists who can help them work through the emotional and psychological issues that may have contributed to their inappropriate use of substances.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Some patients in recovery may opt to get treatment at a recovery facility during the day but return home at night. These patients have access to medical care to help them through withdrawal when the urge to use rises. Emotional support is also available through therapeutic group and individual sessions to help them work through their substance misuse issues and to realize that they are not alone in their work to find sobriety.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Sometimes after a person has completed detox, it is determined that he or she would be fine by completing recovery treatment in an outpatient program. Such a person can attend sessions at a treatment facility a few times a week but is able to return home or to another safe environment to sleep and live a new healthy lifestyle.

The Recovery Village can accommodate those in recovery in treatment centers all over the country. Some people feel that it is best to leave their home. Instead of attending a La Habra drug rehab center or La Habra alcohol rehab center, it can be helpful to travel to a new environment. It can be beneficial to make a break from old habits, and The Recovery Village is a good choice for those who want to take that path to healing.

In order to determine how you should proceed, it’s a good idea to honestly consider the extent of your substance misuse disorder. You should also check your health insurance to better understand what level of treatment can be covered before making any final decisions. Whatever you decide, you should be commended for making the decision to rid your life of dangerous substances and return to a healthier lifestyle.

Congratulations on considering the first step in getting sober again.
