Are you ready to quit drinking or stop using drugs? To avoid the dangers of detoxing at home, reach out to Renaissance Recovery’s Huntington Beach rehab. 

Overcoming an addiction is not about willpower or self-control. It is a disease and to overcome a disease like this it is vital to seek out professional help at a California rehab. Renaissance Recovery can show you the benefits of entering an Orange County drug and alcohol rehab in Huntington Beach.

But first, let’s learn more about the actual location.

About Huntington Beach, California

Huntington Beach is a city in Orange County, California. Huntington Beach is known for its tourist destinations such as the Main Street pier. Huntington Beach is famous for its surfing and is even the location of the annual US Open of Surfing. If you’re lucky enough to be in town for this awesome event, you can go to the Huntington Beach Pier to check it out.

Along those same lines, the International Surfing Museum is also in Huntington if you’re trying to learn more and see some awesome things about the history of the sport.

Along with its sprawling beaches, Huntington Beach also offers residents and visitors access to a beautiful central park location that features fields, gardens, and lakes. Don’t forget about the awesome beaches, like the Bolsa Chica State Beach which extends 3 miles from Sunset Beach to where Huntington City Beach begins.

It is a serene and peaceful city that can be a perfect location for someone looking to overcome their addiction problem. The location is also known for its large recovery community that those who are going through a treatment program can be a part of.

Let’s take a look at what you may expect from a Huntington Beach rehab and detox.

Detox in Huntington Beach, CA

The best way to detox safely is with the help and guidance of certified professionals. Some people may choose to stop using addictive substances cold turkey, but withdrawal symptoms become unbearable and even can be deadly in the cases of some addictions like alcoholism or benzodiazepine addiction. This is where a Huntington Beach detox can help. While our program doesn’t include detox services, we partner with a number of treatment centers in the area.

Your body can experience mood swings, hallucinations, seizures, vomiting, and other side effects. Consequently, many cases of relapse occur when detoxing at home.

On the contrary, withdrawal symptoms are monitored and reduced in professional facilities like detox centers in Huntington Beach. If the detoxication process becomes too extreme, clinicians and medical professionals are standing by to ensure that you or your loved one will remain stable. 

Once completed, the first step is done, but there are many more that need to be taken if you want to fully overcome a drug or alcohol addiction. Luckily, Renaissance Recovery has an alcohol addiction treatment center in Huntington Beach, California available to help following the detox process.

Adventure Rehab in Huntington

If you admit yourself to a substance abuse treatment center, you are not confined to living in isolation. On the contrary, our Huntington Beach drug rehab believes in experiential and adventure-based programs for our clients. The lessons learned from adventure-based programs can be used as building blocks to a lasting recovery.

IOP Rehab in Huntington Beach

Renaissance Recovery specializes in outpatient and intensive outpatient (IOP) rehab programs that work to help clients overcome and conquer addiction problems through various addiction therapies and treatment modalities. Everything from medication-assisted treatment to dual diagnosis treatment to vocational development programs, Renaissance has you or your loved one covered if they are looking to fight back against substance abuse.

During treatment, clients will go through an intake process that involves evaluations to help clinicians and the clinical director determine the best course of action for each individual client. From there, treatment will begin according to the individualized program designed by the medical professionals at our facility. 

Drug Rehab

While in treatment, clients can participate in various alumni and community events that we plan each month. This helps them not only relax and take their mind off of their battle but can help them meet other individuals who are going through a similar situation or have already gone through the treatment process and have a few years of sobriety under their belt.

These community events are available during and after the outpatient treatment process. Getting to know and work with others who are in recovery provides clients a great opportunity to find people they can turn to if they are ever struggling with their sobriety or are dealing with strong cravings to use again. Being able to lean on someone during hard times can be the difference between a relapse and long-term recovery.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Our treatment program in Huntington Beach will not only cover drug abuse but alcoholism as well. Alcohol addiction is one of the most common substance abuse problems in the United States due to the legality and social acceptance of alcohol.

Despite the high abuse rate for the substance, there are still treatment options for those dealing with an alcohol use disorder. Our team at Renaissance Recovery utilize both experiential and evidence-based treatment options to ensure that all clients’ needs are met. If you or a loved one is dealing with an alcoholism problem and you need help, our program in Huntington Beach is perfect for you. Let’s take a closer look.

Why Dual Diagnosis Treatment is Needed

There is a strong correlation between substance abuse and mental health issues. People who experience addiction often rely on alcohol or drugs to cope with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.

People who lack the proper treatment believe an addictive substance is the only way to feel better. Unfortunately, this notion can make it very difficult to quit or detox from their substance of choice.

For this reason, our drug treatment center in Huntington Beach conducts mental health assessments when our clients enter rehab. It allows our team of certified professionals to understand what may have led to your addiction and identify any overarching mental health disorders that may be contributing to, or even causing, the addiction. 

After the mental health assessment, Renaissance Recovery designs an individualized treatment plan for each client. This will likely include participating in various mental health treatment modalities.

Our Huntington Beach rehab provides mental health treatment programs including mental health intensive outpatient, medication-assisted treatment, and many different forms of addiction therapy.

Just like each person is different, so are the factors that lead to addiction. With a variety of programs, your unique needs will be met.

Why is Detox Important?

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, one of the first steps of the recovery process will be detoxification. Going to a Huntington Beach detox program will help ensure you get started off on the right foot and overcome the early struggles of sobriety.

While you will struggle with urges and cravings to use, the initial withdrawal symptoms are often too severe for someone to handle on their own and can be life-threatening without professional supervision. Attending a professional detox program in Huntington Beach will ensure that you are getting the help you require to kick off your addiction treatment.
