What to Expect at Our Rehab in Orange County

Starting With Detox

Detoxification is the first step in addiction treatment and one of the most important. While we do not provide a detox facility on our campus, we will assist you in finding a great medical detox and inpatient care facility to get you sober before starting outpatient care with us. 

If you attend a detox center in Orange County, you will be medically monitored as you go through the initial stages of sobriety and deal with any withdrawal symptoms present. While some withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous, and even life-threatening in some cases, going through a proper detox program will ensure your safety as you struggle through this period. Whether you are looking for an alcohol or drug detox, reach out for more information on finding an Orange County detox facility.

From there, clients will move on to the next stage in the treatment process. For some, this means a residential treatment center in Orange County or an intensive outpatient program. 

Let’s take a closer look at each of these options and get a better understanding of both.


Following a stay at a detox facility, clients can go a number of routes, but many people will go to a residential or inpatient treatment facility next. There are a number of benefits of going to an inpatient rehab in Orange County, including the supervision they will continue to receive as they work through their first month or so of the treatment process. Inpatient treatment can be helpful, but some decide to skip this level of care and go to outpatient instead.

Clients will go through various treatment programs including cognitive behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment for some, dialectical behavior therapy, and more.

While this is the most comprehensive form of addiction treatment, intensive outpatient programs are one step below. Let’s get a better understanding of these.

Intensive Outpatient

Following detox, many people elect to start looking into our Orange County intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs. While a slight step down in the level of care from inpatient, an IOP is a non-residential treatment program in which clients will go to their treatment facility for a set amount of days during the week and normally stay all day to get treatment (group and individual therapy sessions) before leaving and going home for the day.

This form of treatment allows clients to begin integrating themselves back into everyday society.


As the name suggests, intensive outpatient differs from regular Orange County outpatient rehab as IOP tends to be a more hands-on, time intensive portion of treatment whereas regular outpatient is reserved for those who have already been through an IOP program or something more intensive.

During outpatient treatment, clients will still be traveling in for treatment a few days out of the week, but will be at treatment for less time during the day. Take a moment to reach out to our outpatient rehab Orange County treatment center.

Aftercare & Alumni

Following discharge from our outpatient program, clients at Renaissance Recovery will be set up without Orange County aftercare and alumni community. Having a recovery community that you can rely on when you start feeling moments of weakness is vital to encourage your long-term sobriety.

It can be natural to think that you can handle everything on your own, but when it comes to addiction and long-term sobriety, it is best to have others to fall back on when needed.

Don’t hesitate, call today to get started on your road to recovery and visit our Fountain Valley rehab.

Substance Abuse Treatment Features

Individual counseling is a staple of addiction treatment. Whether it be cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), or something else, one-on-one counseling allows clients to develop strategies to fight back against addiction and the problems that follow, such as being an angry drunk.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in Orange County is an important aspect of substance abuse treatment and can be used to help clients overcome the problematic symptoms of withdrawal.

Family Counseling

Family counseling and group therapy, in general, are normally used during substance abuse treatment to help clients not only learn from others but work with their families to try and fix severed relationships and create new trust among all parties.

Dual Diagnosis

At our dual diagnosis treatment program in Orange County, clients will not solely fight substance abuse, but also any underlying mental health conditions that may be contributing to or causing the addiction in the first place.

Vocational Development

We see the vocational development training at our Orange County rehabilitation facility as an important part of our treatment. Clients will work with our team to learn the best ways to reintegrate themselves back in society, including helping them get a job.

Holistic Treatment

We don’t just stop at counseling, we believe that you should look at all possible treatment options when fighting addiction including alternative methods. For some people at our OC rehab, this can include things like yoga, adventure therapy, acupuncture, and more.

Addiction Treatment FAQ

If you are not from California, you may not know exactly where Orange County even is, and you may be asking “how far is Orange County from LA?”

Orange County, California is located in Southern California and is actually a part of the Los Angeles Metropolitan area. Orange County houses many prominent cities including Anaheim, Irvine, Huntington Beach, and more.

Orange County has a lot to offer in terms of activities and amenities. For one, the outdoors are amazing. Orange County has numerous miles of coastline allowing visitors to enjoy their time at the beach and even try out surfing while they’re out here since Huntington Beach is home to the U.S. Surfing Open each year. Laguna Beach even has tide pools and an oceanfront national park — Crystal Cove State Park.

Along with outdoor activities like tanning, surfing, hiking, and more. There are a number of great restaurants, retail shopping areas, amusement parks, museums, and more. If you are thinking of coming to Orange County for addiction treatment, rest assured, there are many fun things you can do while visiting.

Besides the number of fun events and activities that will be available to you, Orange County is a gorgeous place that gets about 278 days of sunshine every year. Along with the beautiful weather, Orange County, California boasts one of the biggest addiction recovery communities in the country.

This additional alumni and community will be a huge benefit to you or your loved one’s sobriety as getting sober is only the first step. Staying sober after leaving treatment can be hard but with the help of fellow alumni and community-planned events, it can be easier to be held accountable.

Traveling out of state or out of town for addiction treatment can be a difficult decision to make. While there is not one clear answer, there are a few things that you must take into consideration. For example, if you or your loved one is more likely to relapse due to relationships, friends, and others who are enabling their substance abuse, it is likely best to seek out treatment elsewhere. Meanwhile, if the client is strengthened by the presence of family close by and can use that to their advantage in their new sober journey, it may be good to stay close to home.

Overall, the decision is dependent on a lot of factors, to help you make the best decision for your situation, reach out to Renaissance Recovery. We can give you an outside perspective on you or your loved one’s circumstances and help you make the right decision.
