Inpatient Rehab and Detox in Upland, California

Upland Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Nestled in the Pomona Valley in Southern California’s San Bernardino County, Upland is proud of its thousands-year-old past, which it pays tribute to at the Cooper Museum. Spanish missionaries joined the indigenous people, the Tongva, in the 1760s, and settlers followed. In the 1830s, there was an influx of pioneers with the Gold Rush. The area eventually grew into agricultural development, with citrus, peaches, cherries and vineyards.

Upland has a population of more than 76,000. It’s perhaps best known locally for its skateboard park, Memorial Skate Park, which professional skateboarder Steve Alba helped design. Guasti Regional Park offers more outdoor opportunities, with a lagoon, a flume, swimming and boating.

While Upland maintains a focus on healthy family activities, alcohol or drug addiction can become a problem anywhere. If you are concerned about your drinking or drug use, know that treatment options and support are available in Upland and in the surrounding communities.

Finding Help in Upland

Upland, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

While about 22.5 million Americans misuse illicit drugs or alcohol, only a small number of those people receive treatment. Yet, studies have shown such treatment, followed by regular attendance at 12-step or other fellowship meetings, can result in long-term sobriety for many patients. To be effective, treatment should address the unique problems of the individual, who may have other health problems in addition to the addiction. Treating the whole patient is the best solution. To determine the best course, talk about your options with an expert.

Residential Treatment Programs

When you’re ready to take the first steps toward sobriety, a residential treatment program often is the ideal way to treat the whole patient and all his or her health needs. Residential treatment is a full-time immersive experience in which the patient’s medical, psychological and behavioral needs receive care, as the patient receives constant monitoring. It’s most effective when treatment is at least three months long, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and it may last as long as 27 months. Treatment may include medications that ease the patient off the illicit drugs or help with other problems such as anxiety or depression. Behavioral or motivational therapy, as well as family or marriage therapy, may be in an individual or group setting. Other medical needs such as malnutrition resulting from the addiction will also receive care, and the patient undergoes monitoring to help lessen the chances of a relapse.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

For some patients, partial hospitalization may be a more cost-effective or time-conscious solution. Instead of living full-time at the treatment facility, the patient goes to treatment for six or more hours a day to receive similar drug counseling, medical attention and cognitive or behavioral therapy to what he or she would encounter during full hospitalization. It costs less since the patient isn’t living at the facility, and it allows some time for school or work. If the patient has good support at home that encourages sobriety, this can be an effective option.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

In a third treatment consideration, patients live in their homes, with time for work or school, and have regularly scheduled medical and counseling sessions for drug or alcohol rehabilitation. Cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as individual and group sessions and strategies (both medical and psychological) for staying sober are a part of outpatient treatment as well. For patients who have support to monitor them for misuse, and who need the flexibility and a less costly approach, outpatient treatment can be the ideal choice.

Whichever treatment course is best for the individual patient, it can be the start to a new, healthier life of sobriety, especially when followed up by recovery meetings. If you’re ready to make the first brave step toward a life free from misuse, know that your journey may begin with detoxification for drugs or alcohol. Reach out to a rehab center to learn more.

Detox Centers

There are several drug detox centers in Upland, but the most appropriate for you may in fact be elsewhere, perhaps at a national facility. Detox will include medically supervised withdrawal, which is different for each drug and can be physically as well as emotionally taxing. Patients should not attempt detox without medical supervision. In addition to cravings, symptoms might include fatigue, insomnia and anxiety, nausea and sweating, increased heart rate and blood pressure and the tremors (DTs) for which alcohol withdrawal is famous. During detox, medical professionals may prescribe drugs to ease symptoms, supervise your vital signs and offer therapy to help with psychological changes brought on by stopping the drugs or alcohol. Herbal teas and broth may help with dehydration, and the patient’s nutrition receives care with vitamins and minerals. Once detoxification is complete, the patient moves on to a more complete treatment program with the goal of continued abstinence.

Recovery Meetings Near You

As you finish your drug or alcohol rehab program, counselors will likely recommend a recovery meeting as part of your aftercare plan. Studies have shown them effective in maintaining sobriety as long as attendance is diligent and regular. The type that’s best for you depends on your addiction, your lifestyle and your belief system, but be prepared for change as you commit to abstinence.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

The original addiction fellowship, Alcoholics Anonymous, was founded in 1935 in Akron, Ohio. Five years later, it had 50 groups and 1,400 members; today, there are nearly two million members and 110,000 groups worldwide. It employs a 12-step program that includes taking responsibility for the alcohol addiction, turning it over to a higher power, making amends to those the addiction has harmed and, finally, making a commitment to helping others who are similarly addicted. People can attend any meetings called “open.” Closed meetings are for members only. All are free, and there’s no limit to how many meetings someone can attend. Frequent attendance is encouraged. Several locations have meetings at various times.

SMART Recovery Meetings

While 12-step programs are time-tested in addiction recovery, a newer option also has had good results for those who prefer a different approach than reliance on a higher power. SMART Recovery, founded in 1994, stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. Its literature says that it has “a scientific foundation, not a spiritual one.” It teaches techniques to avoid cravings for alcohol or drugs, encourages participants to think about benefits of not using and employs motivational psychology to help users build a foundation of sobriety. Several SMART Recovery meetings are in the Upland area, although not in Upland itself. The SMART Recovery website also offers access to online meetings.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

If your loved one or family member is struggling with alcohol or drugs, you may find benefit from fellowship, regardless of whether that person has decided to become sober. The principles of Al-Anon and Nar-Anon are similar to those of Alcoholics Anonymous. Meetings are free, and participants gain understanding of addiction and its role in the family, as they gain insights on how to help your loved one receive support and learn techniques for coping.
