8 Reasons Ocean Hills Ranks #1 Among Top Rehab Centers In California
There may be a handful of decent California rehab centers, but Ocean Hills Recovery has been ranked number one. It makes sense considering the amount of effort we put forth into helping each and every one of our patients recover from their addictions. Being number one in the list of top rehab centers in California isn’t an honor that we take lightly and it’s a title that we plan to hold. What is it about Ocean Hills Recovery that causes us to be number one? Here are a few of the possible reasons.
1. The Highest Success Rate Around.
The top rehab centers in California must have high success rates. While other facilities might boast success rates of 50 to 60 percent, Ocean Hills raises the bar even higher. For example, our 90-day drug and alcohol program has a success rate of 73 percent. That means, on average, about 3 out of every 4 people enjoy long term recovery after participating in the program. Just staying sober while you’re in here isn’t enough. We help our patients make changes that will help them stay clean for the rest of their lives.
2. The Best Staff Around.
Some California rehab centers put so much focus into developing unique rehabilitation programs that they overlook the importance of hiring quality staff. And that doesn’t just mean staff with experience or education. We only employ friendly, caring staff who are honestly willing to put the patient first while they are at work. Whether it’s the receptionist, a nurse, or a doctor: all of our staff is interviewed, reviewed, and chosen with extreme care.
3. Collaborative Recovery Programs.
Ocean Hills utilizes the Collaborative Recovery approach for alcohol addiction. This is the same program that was previously mentioned to have a 73 percent success rate. The details of the program vary from person to person because everyone is unique. We understand that a cookie cutter program isn’t going to help everyone recover. Think of Collaborative Recovery as a personalized 12 step program that can last either 30, 60, or 90 days. Professionals follow each patient’s progress through the program starting from day one. The program can be adjusted at any time to better suit the needs of the patient. In addition to the 12 steps, Collaborative Recovery can include therapy, psychological approaches, spiritual approaches, and medication.
4. Great Success With Drug Addiction.
Collaborative Recovery is so effective and flexible that it can easily be tailored to work for patients suffering from a drug addiction. Drug addictions can be extremely difficult to overcome and may be dangerous in some cases. The program can be fully customized for each patient just as it is when treating alcoholism so that risks are minimized. The medical and therapeutic aspects work extremely well when combined with the foundation put in place by the 12 step program. That’s one reason why Ocean Hills has such a high rate of success when compared to top rehab centers in California that only employ one of those three recovery tools.
5. A Detox Program That Really Works.
It’s not entirely uncommon for California rehab centers to send their patients to a different facility for the detox process. We find this a bit odd since detoxification is an extremely important step towards a recovery. That’s why we implement high-quality detox programs right here at Ocean Hills. We want to know that our patients are receiving the best possible care from the very beginning. It’s especially important when you consider the health risks associated with an alcohol detox. Since we employ the best staff and utilize the best possible methods, we know patients who detox in our facility will be safe and cared for the entire time. They can then go straight from their detox into their recovery program.
6. A Consistent And Reliable Schedule.
At Ocean Hills, we believe that a consistent and reliable schedule is a very important part of the recovery process. It helps control cravings by focusing on an activity or event that you know is just around the corner. Some of the activities we keep on a tight schedule include:
– Sleep routines.
– Special recreation.
– Meal times.
Some patients have a bit of trouble adjusting to schedules at first. After all, it can be a big change compared to what they were used to. However, most eventually agree that the firm schedules played an important role in keeping them on track during the recovery process. Some of them still stick to similar schedules even after leaving the facility.
7. Highly Trained Intervention Specialists.
An intervention can be one of the most powerful tools available when it comes to getting help for a loved one. Sometimes, they simply aren’t ready to admit that they have a serious problem. An intervention specialist can help you, your friends, your family, and other loved ones facilitate an open and honest dialogue with someone who suffers from addiction. We understand that detoxification and recovery time are absolutely essential, but these things won’t happen if the person doesn’t really understand that they have a problem and that they are hurting the people they love.
8. Our Sober Living Homes.
Just as pre-rehab is very important, so is the time a patient spends after leaving rehab. Sober living is the word we use to refer to housing where multiple people recovering from addiction live. It may be a large home with several bedrooms or it may be an entire apartment complex. Our sober living housing arrangement help patients stay strong after leaving rehab by living in a clean, alcohol-free environment with others who are there to strengthen and support them.
Just The Tip Of The Iceberg.
These are just a few of the reasons why Ocean Hills is ranked number one among the top rehab centers in California. We face a lot of stiff competition but are confident that we employ the best staff, offer the best programs, and care the most about our patients.
