Attending Withdrawal from Alcohol and Therapy Afterwards

Alcohol Therapy

La Jolla Recovery has provided innovative withdrawal and client centered approaches for alcohol rehabilitation in San Diego County, California.

Alcohol is a socially accepted drug that, when used in a disorder, requires critical attention in withdrawal with detox and afterward with inpatient residential treatment or outpatient rehab. When alcohol is abused, people can become dependent on it to cope with life’s difficulties.

Alcohol dependence can lead to serious physical consequences such as liver damage and death. From Coronado to Del Mar, detoxing from alcohol abuse may require medical assistance rehab programs and should always be done under the supervision of a professional. Inpatient residential treatment or outpatient rehab helps alcoholics to manage their addiction and to stay sober. Alcohol rehab focuses on educating patients about the dangers of substance abuse, developing coping mechanisms to deal with stressful situations, and providing a solid support system to help people with an alcohol addiction stay accountable and motivated toward sobriety.

Experienced Alcohol Detox

With over 12 years of experience in alcohol detoxification, La Jolla Recovery makes sure there is medical attention for alcohol detox until physiological stabilization has been possible.


La Jolla Recovery therapy for alcohol involves a comprehensive program that offers a safe, structured, and professional medical environment and support.

Continuous Care

Inpatient residential or outpatient rehab may be continued for a long-term program to reduce discomfort and create a journey after alcohol detox and increase the chance of sustained sobriety.

Sober in San Diego

Thousands of support groups, from Alcoholics Anonymous to alcohol counselors, make it possible for clients to get all the attention they need as they transition back into society.

Depending on what suits the individual best, alcoholism rehabilitation can be treated with inpatient residential rehab or outpatient at La Jolla Recovery. Learn more about us and our services for alcohol abuse.

Inpatient Rehab

The inpatient programs can be from one to three months or more, depending on the severity of the alcohol use disorder and the transitional needs such as work, family, or loved ones being ready for reintegration. During residential rehab for alcohol, the patient has frequent and tailored professional recovery supervision after successful withdrawal.

During alcohol rehab, professionals help clients identify and address their addiction’s root causes. They also provide counseling, therapy, and other guidance to help clients develop tools and strategies for managing cravings and preventing relapse. Rehab programs also offer educational opportunities to help the patient understand the risks associated with substance abuse and learn how to live a healthier lifestyle. Whether in Rancho Santa Fe or Coronado, inpatient residential treatment for alcohol also offers therapeutic techniques to help the client transition back into their day-to-day life and recognize later situations that may lead to relapse. The recovery process is individualized, with the length of stay varying based on the severity of the addiction and the transitional needs such as work, family, and other external supports.


After continuous and supervised attention to an alcohol problem is sustained, intensive outpatient programs, or IOP rehab, make it possible to continue group therapy while working, attending school, or being home part-time. This way, the experience of being part of society can be balanced with the early needs of sobriety to share with peers and counselors how the journey is evolving. Alcoholism need not continue to be a stigma and may be treated appropriately while continuing life in San Diego.

The intense outpatient program, or IOP rehab, offers a practical, supervised approach to recovery that allows clients to attend sessions during the day or evening. The sessions enable individuals to remain connected to professional support while allowing them to continue working, attending school, or other activities. During the IOP program, the patient can work on identifying the underlying triggers of their addiction, learning new coping strategies and tools, and staying accountable with the help of a group and their counselor. The IOP experience also helps the individual reintegrate into society, develop connections with peers, family, and other supportive figures, and participate in activities they may not have been able to while dealing with addiction. For San Diego residents struggling with alcohol addiction, IOP provides a safe space to begin recovery and pursue a life free from substance abuse.

Medication and Counseling

At La Jolla Recovery, we believe that there is no need to reinvent the wheel or have strong opinions about alcohol treatment that has now been researched and studied for many years with innovative therapeutical processes and medication that can assist, add to the positive outcomes, and sustain the recovery from alcohol abuse. Close to Encinitas, Coronado, Del Mar, and other County beaches, our Medication-assisted treatment, such as suboxone, Subutex, and sublocade, among other MATs, can ease the body’s homeostasis support cognitive and emotional transitions during and after alcohol rehab. This does not ignore the physical root needs, which are attended to with the proper exercise and nutrition, alleviate many withdrawal symptoms, and restore appropriate bodily functions such as sleep, social integration, and cohesion. For psychological therapies, La Jolla alcohol therapy includes CBT, DBT, ACT, and other innovative, science-based, and results-oriented methods. Our experiential therapies, from yoga overseeing Mission Bay to surfing or paddleboarding, make treatments like group go beyond a typical alcohol rehab day.

Alcohol Treatment Therapy

The heart of our alcohol counseling programs includes attention to trauma, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing, among other evidence-based approaches to substance abuse.

All of our alcohol counseling programs are designed to be comprehensive and tailored to each client’s individual needs. We incorporate evidence-based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and trauma-informed care. These approaches help our clients learn new skills for managing cravings and triggers, developing stress management techniques, and establishing healthy goals for long-term recovery success. We also provide access to holistic modalities such as art therapy and mindfulness to help guide our clients through healing. With a focus on providing personalized attention and support, our alcohol counseling programs can give individuals the tools and guidance they need to make meaningful and sustainable life changes.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

From having the awareness to beliefs driving an individual’s behavior and life, the relationship of therapist and peers makes it possible over a longitudinal journey to bring forward the correct perspective of life, know what is hindering a client towards progress, and develop a valuable set of beliefs in recovery that can sustain sobriety. For women, social stressors and expectations such as weight may also require attention. We are glad to offer a mental health component to our rehab services. Are you wondering if inpatient might be a better option than outpatient rehab? La Jolla Recovery is here to answer your questions.


A client’s past or behavior while under the influence can add to a biological and systemic interruption to alcohol treatment. Trauma, or events that affect emotional, memory, or human behavior, is a condition that often is not brought to the attention or awareness of a client. Many times events or difficult or painful events in an individual’s life can impact the brain and behavior, leading to challenges of stress, memory, socialization, or anxiety, among many other states of being. At La Jolla Recovery, we believe it is critical to attend to these deep-seated roots of our mind and behavior, not to let the past weigh heavily or interrupt the momentum created by the present. If you suffer from other addictions such as xanaxcocaineheroin compounded with alcohol, we want to attend the proper detoxification and support. Also, dual diagnoses such as compounded mental health, such as panic disorders, are treated during our rehab to help some of the common relapse triggers after discharge.

The Evidence of Medication Assisted Treatment

Medication for Alcohol Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment has been found to alleviate withdrawal from alcohol, increase outcomes and extend sobriety. Under the supervision of our addiction physician consultant, abstinence symptoms are reduced, alcohol craving is diminished, and the physical reaction to withdrawing from taking too much alcohol is ameliorated.

Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol use disorder is a massive epidemic problem in the United States, one of the top lifestyle-related deaths among Americans. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) states that close to 12 percent of American adults may be classified as alcoholics and an even more significant amount engage in binge drinking.

If you are suffering from the effects of alcoholism such as challenging withdrawal symptoms or believe you have a problem with alcohol, let us provide you with the unique and tailored approach required for alcohol treatment in San Diego, California. Let us at La Jolla Recovery become the beginning of your journey worth dreaming all over again for.

The problem of Alcohol is real.

La Jolla Recovery’s medical-supervised alcoholism detox program in San Diego utilizes an evidence-based and tailored approach to treating alcoholism. There are different levels of alcohol use disorder severity. Some clients may require different detoxification times and extended levels of care, and others will do perfectly in outpatient while still attending work or living at home. Our alcohol addiction rehab staff is here to ensure your needs are met. The CDC and National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Addiction stated that in 2013, close to 16.5 million adult Americans had an alcohol use disorder (AUD). We take suitable attention seriously at the right time, regardless of age or social position. Alcoholism affects everyone, and attending it as early as possible and as long as required is imperative, no matter the financial situation or public position. Alcohol abuse may start in teens, with nearly 700,000 teenagers involved in binge drinking.

From these statistics, it is clear it can start early. However, treatment can become just as before and a blessing in disguise for a young person to be alcohol-free in their youth.

The health consequences are real, from the liver to the cognitive, and attending to them as early as possible is critical. Depression, heart conditions, or cancer may occur later in life if not approached correctly.

We understand at La Jolla Recovery how hard it is to accept a problem and want help. We commend you immensely for taking these steps and reaching out. Although it is expected to hear that an AA meeting or going cold turkey is enough, weaning from alcohol abuse can be a medical challenge and inclusively mortal.

Let us take care of your alcohol detox needs and design an extensive, integrative, and perfect program for you, your loved ones, and the life you have always dreamed of, free from the pain of alcohol. If compounded alcoholism exists with other drugs such as opiates or heroin, La Jolla Recovery has the proper alcohol and detox process for its withdrawal. If sober living is required after alcohol treatment, we recommend local sober living home options. If you come from out of state, such as Texas, New York, or Arizona, we will arrange transportation and welcome you to your California home for healing.
