California Substance Addiction Treatment and Programs
There are two basic steps to the process of overcoming drug abuse or alcoholism in California. The first step is Detoxification, which is the process of removing drug residues and other toxins from within the body. The second step of the process is drug and alcohol rehabilitation, which involves teaching the recovering drug addict how to avoid triggers or other situations that may cause them to fall back into their unhealthy habits and relapse into drug and alcohol abuse again.
Drug abuse and alcoholism detoxification has long been considered to be the only step in eliminating drug abuse, but detoxification only handles the physical aspects of the drug and alcohol addiction, and does not take care of any of the mental aspects of the addiction. Detoxification is only responsible for removing the drugs from the body, alleviating only the physical cravings but not the mental ones. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation on the other hand is responsible for teaching the recovering addict ways to avoid drug use so that they can continue to be successful at living a drug free existence.
In California you will find not only detoxification treatment centers, but also drug rehabilitation centers, and alcohol rehabilitation centers. These rehabilitation and detoxification centers can provide not only care for the physical aspects of the drug or alcohol, but also the mental aspects of the addition by providing recovery counseling and therapy while the recovering addict makes their journey toward a lifestyle that is both drug free and alcohol free as well.
California also offers rapid detoxification programs, which involves the process of placing a recovering addict under general anesthesia, and then using alternative medications to force the drug and its toxins out of the body and away from the nervous system. The withdrawal process is immediate, and the body begins to go through withdrawal without the recovering addict feeling any of the symptoms, or discomfort or pain of any kind. By the time the alcoholic or drug abuser wakes up, he or she will be dealing with much lower levels of symptoms, which is why this rehabilitation process is so successful.
Rapid detoxification only takes a couple of hours rather than days or even weeks of nausea and pain that are common with normal detoxification and withdrawal. California rehabilitation centers also offer sauna treatments and herbal supplements, as well as a number of other alternative addiction therapies. Some make use of alternative medications instead of therapies, but no matter which type of rehabilitation therapy each California rehab facility offers, many of these clinics offer truly successful methods of detoxification and rehabilitation that can help a hopeful recovering drug addict get back on track and eliminate drug abuse or alcoholism from his or her life.
