Choosing the right Newport Beach rehab and care facilities could mean the difference between comfortably detoxing and pursuing your sobriety and ongoing addiction or relapse.

Both alcoholism and drug addiction are on the rise in the United States. Each year, SAMHSA (the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) publishes data from NSDUH (the National Survey on Drug Use and Health). NSDUH 2019 shows that 14.5 million adults in the US had alcohol use disorder (AUD) and 20 million had substance use disorder (SUD). The recently published data from NSDUH 2020, though, shows a dramatic increase to 28.5 million adults with AUD and 40 million adults with SUD.

Compounding this increase in addiction, most estimates show that just one in ten people requiring treatment for substance use disorders receive any therapy, and one in ten adults develop substance use disorder at some point in life.

It is more important than ever, then, to plug this treatment gap and to continue removing barriers to addiction treatment.

Maybe you are aware that you have either alcohol use disorder or substance use disorder, and perhaps you are ready to engage with professional treatment. If so, and if you think you might benefit from California rehab Newport Beach, the first thing you need to consider is detoxing from alcohol or drugs.

Newport Beach Detox Center

If you are addicted to alcohol or drugs, you’ll need to undergo a process of detoxification before joining a treatment program.

The objective of detox is to address the physical component of addiction before ongoing treatment targets the psychological aspect of alcoholism or substance abuse.

In most cases of moderate and severe SUD or AUD, home detox is not only inadvisable, but it’s also potentially deadly. Delirium tremens (DTs) – severe alcohol withdrawal – can be fatal, and unsupervised and abrupt withdrawal from benzos or opioids can also be life-threatening.

To navigate detox and withdrawal safely and comfortably, consider a Newport Beach detox center. You have two options here:

  • Inpatient Newport Beach detox: With a residential medical detox, you will stay at the hospital, detox clinic, or rehab center for the duration of the detoxification process. Inpatient drug or alcohol detox provides you with around-the-clock supervision and clinical care, while also ensuring you have access to the medications that can streamline withdrawal symptoms and cravings for alcohol or drugs. You can engage with inpatient detox in a standalone capacity in a medical detox center in Newport Beach and then step down to an outpatient treatment program. Alternatively, you could start an inpatient treatment program by detoxing under supervision.
  • Outpatient Newport Beach detox: For milder addictions with less likelihood of severe or life-threatening withdrawal symptoms, outpatient detox can be effective. With this approach to detox, you’ll receive treatment in a clinical setting during the day. Between therapy, you return home or to a sober living home.

Detoxing from alcohol or drugs usually takes anywhere from 7 to 10 days. By this point, withdrawal symptoms should have dissipated, with the exception of any post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS), which can linger for months.

Detox is a three-step process:

  1. Intake: The intake phase allows the treatment team to closely review your medical history, your substance abuse history, and your psychiatric history. Using this information, the team can personalize a detox program and better anticipate any potential complications.
  2. MAT (medication-assisted treatment): Alcohol use disorder and opioid use disorder, two of the most common addictions, can be treated with a variety of FDA-approved medications. These can help reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Other medications are often prescribed to alleviate symptoms associated with detox and withdrawal, and also for the treatment of any co-occurring disorders.
  3. Stabilization: With an individualized combination of psychological and pharmaceutical interventions, you will purge the toxins from your system and become medically stabilized. This allows you to start your recovery journey in the most appropriate treatment program.

Finding a Newport Beach, California Rehab

If you are ready to commit to a course of treatment at an alcohol or drug rehab Newport Beach, you should start the shortlisting process by asking your doctor to recommend any suitable facilities.

Next, ask friends and family members if they can suggest an appropriate Newport Beach rehab center.

Widen your options by searching online for any suitable rehabs in the area.

You should now have a selection of treatment centers. Before contacting and questioning the rehabs on this shortlist, you should first consider whether you require inpatient or outpatient rehab.

Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab in Newport Beach

Whether you’re looking for alcohol rehab in Newport Beach or drug rehab in Newport Beach, it is crucial to consider whether you need inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab.

Inpatient rehab is also called residential rehab. As the name makes clear, you’ll be a resident of the treatment center for the duration of the program. The detox to discharge process takes most people attending residential rehab in Newport Beach from 30 to 90 days.

At residential rehab, you’ll engage with a highly structured program, including the following evidence-based addiction treatments:

  • MAT
  • Psychotherapy – CBT and DBT
  • Individual counseling
  • Group counseling

You can also expect access to a variety of holistic therapies, vocational development programs, and family therapy.

With outpatient rehab, you have the following three options:

  • OP (standard outpatient program) – 2 hours of weekly therapy
  • IOP (intensive outpatient program) – 12 to 15 hours of weekly therapy
  • PHP (partial hospitalization program) – 30+ hours of weekly therapy

The core difference between the above programs is the time commitment required. On the five levels of the continuum of care established by ASAM (the American Society of Addiction Medicine), OPs are on the second level, while IOPs and PHPs are both on the third level, directly below residential rehab.

With outpatient treatment programs, you benefit from the same services as outlined above in residential rehab. Unlike with an inpatient program, though, you return home between your treatment sessions. Some people with volatile home environments engage with outpatient treatment while based at a sober living home.

Studies show that IOPs are equally as effective as inpatient rehab for the treatment of most mild and moderate substance use disorders.

For those with severe substance use disorder or alcohol use disorder, though, residential rehab is typically advisable. Anyone with a severe co-occurring mental health disorder like bipolar disorder or PTSD may also benefit from inpatient treatment.
