When you first begin your treatment plan, your therapist will assign you to addiction treatment programs at the right level of care. The levels guide mental health experts when deciding how their clients should begin treatment. They also guarantee uniformity through the recovery process.
If you or your loved ones wish to quit alcohol or drug use, Renaissance Recovery in CA will help you determine which level of care is ideal.
Level 0.5: Early Intervention Services
Level 0.5 focuses on sensitizing people at higher risk of alcohol or drug abuse against the impending dangers. There is no need for referral in diagnosis at this level. The first level is ideal for school-going children, teenagers, and young adults.
You will be under close monitoring for signs that indicate you need higher levels of care.
Level 1: Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs
Outpatient care requires you to attend several treatment sessions weekly. You can continue with usual activities, but you will be required to spare some time to attend professionally directed addiction therapy. The second level is suitable for those who show mild signs of dependency. Weekly sessions in outpatient programs often last for less than nine hours in total.
You can receive level 1 outpatient services after transitioning from intensive outpatient treatment. Conversely, your therapist can transition you to more intensive treatment if the first level does not produce the desired outcomes.
Level 2: Intensive Outpatient or Partial Hospitalization
The design of the second level of substance use care includes:
- Psycho-pharmacological consultation
- Around-the-clock crisis services
- Psychiatric consultation
- Medication management
- Vocational training
Level 2.1: Intensive Outpatient Services
When you receive care under intensive outpatient treatment, you live on your own, often in a sober living home. If you have a robust social support system or have to attend to family responsibilities, you can live independently.
Expect to attend some mix of counseling, mental health education, and frequent meetings with specialists. This program is not as expensive as residential treatment, which usually becomes costlier when you include intensive drug and alcohol detox.
Level 2.2: Partial Hospitalization Services
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) offers you direct access to medical and mental health professionals. It also provides laboratory services, so you do not have to be referred to another facility for such services.
Level 3: Residential Treatment
The third level of substance use treatment offers clients functional deficits in the right environment for recovery. It removes you from your daily routines and triggers. Expect to live in the facility during the period of treatment.
Level 3.1: Clinically Managed Low-Intensity Residential Services
If you are reasonably stable and ready to move to a partial hospitalization program, you will receive care at level 3.1. This stage focuses on teaching you self-reliance, relapse prevention, and better management of emotions.
Level 3.3: Clinically Managed Medium Intensity Residential Services
The design of level 3.3 focuses on accommodating clients with alcohol or substance use disorders. These disorders are often those of permanent or temporary cognitive deficiency. The medium residential care offers intensive treatment but in gentler and repetitive steps. You can also access other essential services, such as sober housing, vocational needs, transportation, and frequent self-help meetings.
Level 3.5: Clinically Managed High-Intensity Residential Services
This level caters to individuals with multiple issues, such as impaired functioning, criminality, alcohol and substance use disorders, and difficulty following the law.
Level 3.7: Medically Monitored Intensive Residential Services
This level focuses on people with functional deficits due to severe withdrawal after drug and alcohol detox. Its design also helps those with emotional and medical issues to overcome the challenges hindering their recovery.
Level 4: Medically Managed Intensive Residential Services
The last level is the most comprehensive and intense of all drug rehab programs in OC. Here, you will be under 24-hour medical monitoring, care, and treatment. Rehabs offering this level of care have all the necessary facilities and resources to handle co-occurring disorders.
Such rehabs offer a variety of evidence-based therapies, such as:
- Addiction therapy services
- Holistic therapy program
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Mental health IOP
