Redlands Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

The people of Redlands, California have a lot to be proud of, including the city’s recent 21st consecutive designation by the Arbor Day Foundation as a “Tree City USA.” The list of notable Redlands-born sons and daughters is long and includes actors, musicians, sports figures and influential politicians. At one time, Redlands was at the heart of California’s navel orange production. Today, the city hosts college students and the headquarters for several major corporations. Community activism and cultural exploration are vital to Redlands, as are the city’s many open spaces and public parks.

However, Redlands isn’t all sunshine and roses for some people. As part of San Bernardino County, Redlands shares in the area’s struggles with rampant drug and alcohol abuse problems. The Inland Empire hasn’t been hit as hard as the rest of the state when it comes to the spikes in heroin overdoses, but other drugs like methamphetamine, benzodiazepines and opioids are impacting the area directly. Hospitals and clinics are seeing hardworking, average people develop substance use disorders after being prescribed strong painkillers for surgery or accidental injury. These patients never intended to get involved with narcotics in a non-medicinal manner. Other people misuse drugs and alcohol because they seek to treat their chronic medical or mental health conditions.

If you believe you have a substance use disorder, there’s no reason to feel ashamed or afraid. There’s every reason to have hope for recovery. There are various Redlands, CA drug rehab and Redlands, CA alcohol rehab options available. In addition, there are facilities and other throughout San Bernardino County and beyond that can help you with your substance use disorder.

Finding Help in Redlands

Redlands, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

You have several options in treatment programs once you commit to going to a rehabilitation facility. The best option for you depends on a number of factors, including how long you’ve been misusing substances and which substances you’re misusing. Even though you may attend rehab with other patients, each individual patient’s program is designed to meet that person’s specific physical, intellectual, emotional, vocational and spiritual needs. Whether you decide to attend a Redlands drug rehab center, a Redlands alcohol rehab center or a national center, this is the first important step towards your recovery.

Residential Treatment Programs

As the name suggests, residential programs require that you become a “resident” of the facility where you receive treatment. You eat, sleep and spend your free time at the facility for the duration of your program, which might last anywhere from 30 days to six months or more. After your initial assessment, your assigned recovery team develops a structured plan for rehab. You follow the schedule and spend time engaging with your counselors, listening to speakers and attending individual and group therapy. There may be art classes, exercise sessions or music therapy. For many patients, residential treatment is a welcome respite from their everyday stress, even though rehab can feel challenging at times.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

Imagine spending your days immersed in your busy rehab schedule in the partial hospitalization program (PHP). You arrive on time and attend all of your required meetings and sessions. You listen and learn, and you make sincere attempts to put your new lessons into practice. Each day of rehab is long and sometimes very, very difficult, but you press on. Now, imagine you get to return home each night to the comfort of your own bed. You get a good night’s sleep to start fresh with your rehab plan the next day.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient treatment programs are very popular. These recovery plans are like a scaled down version of the partial hospitalization program. You have mandatory meetings and appointments, but you can often schedule them around all your other daily commitments. This allows many patients to continue participating in school or show up at their desks at work every day. Outpatient treatment can also be a positive follow-up to a residential or partial hospitalization program. The accountability and structure can reinforce a commitment to a healthy lifestyle, too.

It may take more than one attempt to complete a rehab program. That’s actually normal for any health care issue when you think about it. If you have surgery for a gastric bypass or a hip replacement, you may have to be hospitalized several times before things work out. A medical condition like substance use disorder is no different.

Detox Centers

It’s best to go through detoxification (detox) treatment before you enter your rehab program. Many recovery facilities expect you to have all of the substances out of your system prior to starting treatment, although some offer detox concurrently with the beginning of your treatment program. It can be hard to get a reality check on your life when your head is clouded by drugs or alcohol. It’s even harder to concentrate on a recovery program when your body is begging you for more of the thing you don’t want in your life anymore. Once the substance is out of your system, you can focus on sorting out the events and choices that brought you to your current place.

Recovery Meetings Near You

The last thing many people in recovery feel like doing is letting more people into their lives. They may feel awkward or fearful of meeting new people as they begin to discover who they are without drugs or alcohol. Recovery meetings can help you get over those feelings, and is an important component of your aftercare. The people you meet have been where you are and welcome you with open arms. You also meet people in the same place where you are right now. The support and social connections can breathe new life into your recovery attitude.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

When you become a member of AA, you join a group that includes millions of people. You have access to resources and activities that can help you grow and enjoy life again. You find kindness and acceptance as well as a group of people who want to see you find peace and fulfillment without alcohol. These meetings have participants follow a 12-step program in which they relinquish their addiction to a higher power and work through the steps to reinforce sobriety. You can meet weekly or even daily to discuss issues with other members.

People in recovery who prefer battling their problems through science rather than faith are the types of people who often become SMART members. The groups feature speakers, outings and working through a four-point plan of self-improvement.
