Alcohol Treatment from Detox to Recovery for Long Beach
Alcoholism is one of the most common forms of addiction, as well as one of the most damaging and destructive.
Alcoholism can have a huge number of serious and unwanted side effects. On its own, alcohol abuse will cause serious health problems ranging from kidney and liver damage, to dehydration, increased likelihood of cancer, brain damage and much more. Beyond that, alcoholism can cause financial strain, it can damage relationships and it can cause falls, accidents or even law breaking behavior. You are not you when you are drunk and you are not you when you are an addict.
But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Alcohol rehab exists to help those struggling with alcohol addiction to overcome their illness and to get their lives back on track. At OceanHillsRecovery.com, we offer effective, compassionate and affordable care for those that need it. Get in touch with us at [PHONE] or read on for more information.
Our Inpatient Programs
If you choose to come to our Long Beach alcohol rehab center, then you will be treated to one of the very best inpatient programs in the country and you will be giving yourself the very best chance at making a full recovery.
A typical stay for alcohol rehabilitation at OceanHillsRecovery.com is 30-60 days. This is long enough for most people to break their negative habits, to stimulate chemical changes in their brain and to change their approaches to stressful situations.
For those that need more care, we can extend the stay up to 90 days.
What to Expect
If you come to our rehab center, then you will be cared for 24-7 by our team of highly proficient, friendly and qualified staff. They will provide monitoring and treatment and you will have a program outlined that is customized to your particular case.
This program includes:
- Recreational activities
- Meals and curfews
Here is a little more about each aspect:
A detox is a period of abstinence from the drug in question – in this case alcohol. This means that you will be taken away from alcohol and your access will be completely restricted. If it is deemed necessary, then your detox might be ‘tapered’ to help you gradually ease off of the substance. Either way, separation from alcohol is a difficult but necessary process that will trigger hormonal and chemical changes in the brain, fundamentally changing the way you function with and without alcohol and ‘resetting’ your system in that way. We will be on hand 24/7 to ensure you don’t gain access to alcohol and to help you with this difficult process.
While necessary, the process of detox can be incredibly difficult. Changes in the brain and body have caused you to become physically dependent on alcohol in order to feel normal. Thus, withdrawal might lead to anxiety, stress, depression, sweating, shaking, nausea and more.
Medication can be used to help you deal with these withdrawal symptoms while still allowing your system to recover. Medication might also be used to help you overcome underlying stress of mental health problems that led to the addiction.
We consider therapy to be the most important part of your treatment here at our Long Beach alcohol rehab facility. The purpose of therapy is to help you to learn new ways to cope with cravings, as well as new ways to cope with triggers such as anxiety or depression.
There are many different forms of therapy and the type we choose is likely to reflect the nature of your illness and what you respond to well.
Popular options include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – This psychotherapeutic approach addresses underlying thought processes that can lead to unwanted behaviors and feelings. We help the patient to address these underlying thought processes and then we help to break down those beliefs and give the patient back control over their emotional and mental state.
- Group Therapy – Many people find that group therapy is particularly beneficial for them. The objective of course is to discuss the addiction in a candid manner with other people who can provide empathy and a support network during your recovery.
- Massage – Massage is an alternative form of therapy that OceanHillsRecovery.com offers. This method is used to treat withdrawal symptoms that manifest themselves physically and to alleviate stress and other issues too.
- Meditation and Mindfulness – You can use mindfulness meditation in conjunction with cognitive behavioral therapy, or you can use meditation on its own. Meditation is fantastic for combating stress and anxiety and for exercising mental discipline and control.
We believe that we have a unique and highly effective approach to alcohol rehab and our success rates speak for themselves. What also helps though is the grounds that we are so fortunate to have access to. We use these grounds for recreational activities that can help patients to take their minds off of their troubles and to find more structure and purpose in life once again.
At the same time, our grounds provide a peaceful and calming place for you to recover emotionally, physically and spiritually. Being removed from the stresses of daily life and from the many pressures that come with that makes a gigantic difference to your recovery, and this is only magnified when you are able to stay somewhere peaceful, calm and beautiful.
