The Importance of Outpatient Addiction Treatment in Costa Mesa

There are many possible barriers to addiction treatment. For a significant number of people, one potential obstacle is not being able to fit effective treatment into their current daily routine. If this is true for you, scheduling conflicts could potentially stop you from getting the help you need. 

Fortunately, there are ways to avoid these kinds of conflicts. That’s especially true if your substance-related symptoms are:

  • Mild
  • Moderate
  • Moderate-to-severe

Why? Most people affected by symptoms that fall within this range are good candidates for outpatient rehab programs. These programs get their name because they don’t require you to remain at your treatment facility throughout the recovery process. Instead, you split your time between treatment at your facility and other important parts of your daily routine. 

There is a tremendous amount of scheduling flexibility within the outpatient treatment approach. This flexibility comes from the availability of three distinct levels of outpatient services:

  • Standard programs 
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs)
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs)

Each program has its own range of treatment hours per week. The amount of weekly treatment you need is largely determined by the seriousness of your substance addiction. However, other factors, including personal choice, may also play a role. 

An outpatient program can support all phases of your recovery. You can start with at-home detox services. Once you complete detox, you can make weekly visits to our rehab facility for active substance treatment.

Core Treatment Options at Our Costa Mesa Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

Over decades of work, researchers have gathered extensive evidence on the best methods for helping most people with substance problems. These methods, which form the core of effective rehab programs, are known collectively as evidence-based treatment. Still, not every treatment works for everyone. Factors that can impact which options make the most sense for you include:

  • Which class of substance you’re addicted to (e.g., alcohol, stimulants, opioids, sedatives)
  • The specific substance within that class (important for treating both drug- and medication-related problems)
  • The extent of your substance problems
  • Other details of your specific situation as a person affected by addiction

Even with these considerations in mind, one evidence-based treatment is used more than any other: psychotherapy. Why is this option so widely used? It comes in many different forms and can serve many different purposes. Most modern therapy focuses on helping you change your behavior with respect to drugs and alcohol. The direction of that change is away from actions that help sustain addiction and toward actions that help you stay substance-free.

The second core option for treating substance problems is medication. However, the availability of evidence-based addiction medications is fairly limited. In fact, they’re mostly used to help people recovering from opioid or alcohol problems. As a rule, medication is paired with therapy to form what’s known as medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Using Holistic Methods in a Costa Mesa Outpatient Rehab Center

Core treatments are invaluable for helping you recover from the direct effects of addiction. However, as addiction experts now understand, holistic services can also be essential for your recovery. These services acknowledge the fact that addiction does not exist in a vacuum. Instead, its impact spills out across many different facets of your life. To fully address this impact, you may need different forms of support than therapy and medication can provide. 

That’s why Peninsula Health offers holistic recovery options at our Costa Mesa drug and alcohol rehab center. Depending on your situation, such options may include:

  • Massage 
  • Tai chi
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Life skills classes
  • A customized fitness program

Our holistic services are fully integrated into your overall treatment plan. There, they can add to the benefits of your core rehab services. Talk to us today to find out more.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment at Peninsula Health

Dual diagnoses are common among men and women in rehab programs. This term is a convenient shorthand for the combination of:

  • Any kind of substance use disorder
  • A second mental health condition not solely triggered by your substance use

Why is such a combination identified by its own unique term? Because it typically increases the difficulty of:

  • Getting sober and avoiding future substance use
  • Restoring your overall mental health so you can function well in everyday life

Doctors who treat dual diagnosis must devise care plans that help you overcome this difficulty and successfully recover. At Peninsula Health, we specialize in creating these kinds of plans and putting them to effective use. Consult us today for more details on the process of dual diagnosis recovery.

Aftercare Services for Long-Term Sobriety

Costa Mesa drug addiction treatment can help you create a sobriety-based daily routine. That’s also true for Costa Mesa alcohol addiction treatment. However, in neither case is your ongoing sobriety guaranteed. In fact, unless you actively work to maintain it, you may eventually fall back into drug or alcohol use.

That’s why Peninsula Health Center offers aftercare services. You start using these services after you complete one of our rehab programs. In various ways, they help you keep your sobriety maintenance skills sharp and active. In turn, they can help you avoid a relapse, no matter how long it’s been since your rehab enrollment.
