OHR is Los Angeles’ Leading Drug & Alcohol Treatment Provider
Welcome to Ocean Hills Recovery, the premier drug and alcohol addiction rehab center in Los Angeles. Offering a wide range of services, from detox to inpatient and outpatient rehab, we have been able to successfully help countless people in LA and the surrounding area overcome substance addiction and abuse.
Operated by leading addiction and mental health practitioners, the addiction rehab program at Ocean Hills has been designed to target the specific needs of each and every person that we work with. Unlike other rehab programs which focus on treating addiction, at Ocean Hills, we focus on treating the entire person. You see, we firmly believe that addiction is caused by a variety of factors and that it impacts every person differently. As such, the factors that have led to the addiction have to be treated; otherwise there is a far greater chance of relapse. Additionally, because every person experiences addiction differently, we custom-tailor or rehab program to address the specific needs of each individual. Our philosophies on treating drug addiction, combined with our caring, compassionated and highly trained staff are what set Ocean Hills Recovery apart from other addiction rehab centers in Los Angeles.
What is Addiction?
Addiction is considered a serious, chronic mental illness. Serious because it has a dramatic impact on the people who suffer from it, and in some cases, the effects can be deadly. Chronic because it is on-going, meaning that a person isn’t immediately cured after receiving treatment; ongoing treatment is necessary in order to remain sober.
When a person takes drugs or alcohol, it has a dramatic effect on the brain. It targets the reward and motivation center. The effects of the substance feel good (reward,) so an individual may compulsively search for the drug and become consumed with taking it in order to feel good again (motivation.) Addiction literally rewires the brain, and over time, a person can become dependent on drugs or alcohol; they need to use a substance in order to feel good and to function.
Why Addiction Rehab is Important
Many people who are addicted to drugs have difficulty admitting that they have a problem and that they need help. They may be in denial, or they may be embarrassed to admit that an issue exists. Often, people do not seek treatment, or they think that they can stop using and recover on their own. In most cases, attempts to stop using by taking the “cold turkey” approach are unsuccessful. The majority of addicts are not equipped with the tools that are necessary to truly beat addiction, which means there is a much greater chance of relapse when someone attempts to stop using on his or her own. On top of that, the withdrawal effects of addiction can be extremely uncomfortable and in severe cases, they can be dangerous.
For all of these reasons, it is important for anyone who wants to overcome addiction to seek professional treatment. A rehab center that uses proven, evidence-based practices can deliver that treatment.
At Ocean Hills Recovery, our goal is to help each and every patient who walks through our doors beat their addiction and achieve sobriety. We are happy to report that we have been able to do just that with every person we have worked with so far – and we are confident that we can do the same for you.
The Ocean Hills Difference
There are a lot of addiction rehab centers in Los Angeles; however, what sets Ocean Hills Recovery apart from the crowd is our commitment to our patients, our caring and compassionate approach, and our philosophy regarding addiction.
We believe that addiction is a disease that affects the whole person, and therefore, the whole person needs to be treated in order to recover from the disease. Our holistic approach allows us to treat our patients mentally, physically and spiritually. We treat the addiction, as well as the addiction itself. Some of the treatments we offer at our rehab program include:
- Our patients receive a comprehensive intake assessment before treatment begins. This helps us determine the severity of the addiction and whether or not detox will be necessary before treatment begins. If we find that it is necessary, you will be supervised throughout the entire detox process and receive the care and support that is needed so that you can do so safely and comfortably.
- Though rehabilitation is based on the individual needs of each patient we work with, some of the things that you can expect to experience during treatment include individual counseling, group counseling, family counseling, art and music therapy, meditation, yoga, nutritional therapy, outdoor recreation and more.
- Once treatment is complete, our patients will receive aftercare. This will involve providing them with the education, the skills and the strategies that are needed in order to acclimate back into the real world and retain sobriety.
At Ocean Hills Recovery, we understand the difficulties that are associated with drug and alcohol addiction, and we also know that it is a difficult disease to treat. Our caring and compassionate staff can offer you the treatment that you need in order to help you put addiction in your past. If you are tired of struggling with addiction and you are ready to get your life back, please contact us today. We would be honored to help guide you through the recovery process so that you can live a happier, healthier life, free of drugs and alcohol.
