Personalized Treatment Plans

Each client receives the benefit of an individualized treatment plan.

We take aftercare plans very seriously because transition is the most difficult part of treatment for most people.

The Importance of Co-Occurring Disorders Rehab

The American Medical Association determined that over half of individuals suffering from addiction and substance abuse have a co-occurring disorder (Dual Diagnosis). This fact is compelling and helps people understand the importance of applying a dual diagnosis treatment philosophy in order to ensure the most effective treatment measures take place. It is also critical to grasp the services necessary to implement a dual diagnosis treatment strategy during rehab.

Here are a few of the key ingredients required for successful co-occurring disorders rehab:

  • Clinical Services
  • Psychiatric Services
  • Psychological Services
  • Multiple types of therapy
  • Number of one on one sessions

Clinical Services

Clinical services are important because this is an aspect of medication management. When people stop using alcohol or drugs, there are often sub-acute and post-acute withdrawal symptoms that can persist for weeks or even months. Medication management is very helpful to create a temporary reprieve from symptoms like sleeplessness, anxiety, or depression. These symptoms are not always directly related to an underlying psychiatric or psychological issue, but they can significantly exasperate these types of issues. Medication management can help people in early recovery begin to reduce extreme mood fluctuations, free-floating anxiety and sleep cycle disturbances. Without medication management support people with dual diagnosis often find treatment unbearable. It is very important that these services are in place in the dual diagnosis treatment setting.

Psychiatric Services

Psychiatric services are important because people often haven t completed a psychiatric assessment for years when they were actually clean and sober for the evaluation. This fact is one of the often overlooked benefits of enrollment in a residential treatment center. Simply by enrolling, people are removed from their patterns of abusive consumption of alcohol, drugs, or prescription medications. This allows psychiatric medicine to play an important role in addressing the emotional, physical, and cognitive symptoms that are present when a person is operating from a place of having a non-chemically altered neurochemistry.

Psychological Services

Psychological services are important because of emotionally-related issues like grief, trauma and low self-esteem. There are also many other circumstances where psychological support can be helpful. For many people, being under the influence was an attempt to anesthetize uncomfortable or difficult feelings. These feelings, thoughts, and emotions are often related to a co-occurring condition but not all the time. As a physically sober life begins, emotions and thoughts that were pushed down by alcohol, drugs, and prescription medications can begin to surface. In this specific area psychological services are critical. Essentially, they help people to learn how to live sober. Without developing these coping skills recovery for some people is simply intolerable.

Multiple Types of Therapy

Offering multiple types of therapy is important because of the fact that each person is unique. For example, not every individual will respond to cognitive-behavioral therapy in a positive way. Some people need a more dialectical-behavioral approach. Having access to appropriately matched types of therapy is a critical aspect of effective dual diagnosis treatment. Without multiple approaches, a program is essentially asking square pegs to fit in round holes.

The Number of One on One Sessions

The number of one on one sessions offered to people in treatment is important because if there is only one session per week, then that s not enough support for a person with dual diagnosis issues. People with co-occurring conditions usually need 3-5 individual one on one sessions per week as a general rule. This is not an absolute. Sometimes people need more support and sometimes people need less support, but regardless, the support should be available.

ARC West Los Angeles, California: The Benefits of Choosing a Los Angeles Drug Rehab Center

This section will outline a few of the key elements for future success that are often overlooked when people initially research drug and alcohol treatment centers.

Real Treatment, Real Life

Effective treatment is not just about information. It is also about practice and application. There is only so much one can learn from therapy and groups. Eventually, each person has to apply what they are being taught in order to continue their recovery. In many drug and alcohol rehab centers, there is simply no way to actually practice many of the skills being imparted through the clinical process. For example, if you attend a treatment center on an island, isolated in the mountains, or on a closed campus, there is only so much real life experience available during rehabilitation. In many instances, when people leave these programs they immediately begin to exhibit signs of overwhelm, anxiety, or emotional distress. These are the exact opposite sensations one would hope a person would have after completing a treatment program. At the Authentic Recovery Center our location is a critical element to preventing this common scenario. Each day we take our clients into the community to safely expose them to the rhythms and activities of what will soon be their independent daily routine. Through these exercises our clients can begin to apply the tools and skills necessary to prevent transitional shock or relapse once they leave.

Cutting Edge Treatment

Los Angeles has long been central in the discussion about addiction treatment. Every few months another celebrity melts down in the face of a mental or behavioral health problem and a national debate is sparked about the core elements of addiction and rehabilitation. Although on a national level the public interest about these topics tends to ebb and flow with the acute moments of comedy and crisis, locally in Los Angeles the discussion forges forward. This is in part due to the regional influence the entertainment industries have on the city. If shows, tours, or productions have to stop, it affects not just the stars of the stage, but the entire crew that makes the magic happen. So for the clinical professionals in the region, advancements in addiction medicine and treatment are always being applied and considered. Out of celebrity meltdowns, entire modalities of treatment have risen, such as sober companions, private monitoring, and many other specialized treatment techniques. In addition to these components, certain cutting-edge medications such as Suboxone, Vivitrol, and Naloxone, have been explored for the treatment of opiate addiction. All of these breakthroughs have originated in the greater Los Angeles area, and most of them specifically to address some specific regional needs that have translated into a benefit for the national field of addiction treatment. There is simply no question that Los Angeles represents the leading edge in addiction medicine and treatment. Simply by enrolling in a drug rehab in the area, people receive the positive influence of skilled and experienced professionals that are forging the way forward for the rest of the country.

The Largest Recovering Population in the World

There is no other place in the world where there is such a concentration of people who are aware of, and living with, the concepts of addiction and alcoholism recovery. It doesn’t even matter whether a person considering treatment is even interested in the 12-step programs. Just the fact that there is community that is as welcoming as Los Angeles to the newly clean and sober individual shouldn’t be overlooked. The difference between attending treatment in a rural area where there is little of no community support can’t even be compared to the sensation of being surrounded with an entire city of like-minded people who personally understand the struggle. Receiving this sense of welcome is simply a byproduct of choosing a Los Angeles drug and alcohol treatment center.

Multiple Opportunities After Treatment

Although not everyone who attends treatment in Los Angeles intends to stay in the area, if they do there are numerous opportunities on both vocational and educational levels to build a foundation in recovery in the region. Los Angeles was the pilot program for the first sober dorm, the first sober employment agency, and the first sober grants foundation. This didn’t happen by accident. There is such a deep understanding about the process of recovery entwined around the city that people just step up in kind on every level to help out people seeking to pursue their dreams after treatment. The Authentic Recovery Center has relationships with local colleges and employers who help our clients when they are ready to get back to their passions in life. Again, it may sound nice to attend treatment in the desert, but what if you want to stay and do extended care? Where will you work, go to school, or live? In the Los Angeles area there are vast resources available for people leaving treatment, including some of the best sober living environments in the country. The opportunities are simple endless.
