Attending Withdrawal from Alcohol and Therapy Afterwards
Alcohol is a socially accepted drug that when used in disorder, requires critical attention in withdrawal with detox and afterwards with inpatient residential treatment or outpatient rehab.
With over 10 years in experience of alcohol detoxification, La Jolla Recovery makes sure there is medical attention for 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.
To reduce discomfort and create a journey afterwards, inpatient residential or outpatient rehab can be continued for a long term program and increase 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.
The duration of an inpatient programs can be from one to three months or more depending on the severity of the alcohol use disorder as well as 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 continuous and supervised attention to an alcohol problem is achieved, outpatient makes it possible to continue group therapy while either 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 in order 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.
Medication and Counseling
At La Jolla Recovery, we believe that there is no need to reinvent the wheel or have strong opinions about 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. Medication assisted treatment such as suboxone, subutex and sublocade among others, can ease the body’s homeostasis as well as support cognitive and emotional transitions in sobriety. This does not ignore the root physical needs, which attended with the proper excercise and nutrition, aleviate many withdrawal symptoms and restore proper bodily functions such as sleep, social integration and cohesion. Our experiential therapies, from yoga overseeing Mission Bay to surfing or paddle boarding, make therapies like group go beyond a typical rehab day.
Alcohol Treatment Therapy
The heart of our alcohol counseling programs include attention to trauma, cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing among other evidence based approaches to substance abuse.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
From having 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 useful set of beliefs in recovery that can sustain sobriety. For women, many times social stressors and expectations such as weight may require attention as well. We are glad to offer a mental health component to our rehab services.
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 many times is not brought to attention or of awareness to a client. Many times events or difficult or painful events of 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 these deep seated roots of our mind and behavior in order to not let the past weigh heavily or interrupt our momentum created by the present. If you are suffering from other addictions such as heroin compounded with alcohol, we want to be able to attend the right detoxification and support.
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.
Help for alcohol with your needs in mind.
The problem of Alcohol is real.
La Jolla Recovery’s medical supervised alcohol detox program in San Diego utilizes an evidence based and tailored approach to treat 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 rehab staff is here to make sure your needs are met. With the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism stating in 2013 that close to 16.5 million of adult Americans have an alcohol use disorder (AUD), we take seriously the right attention at the right time no matter the age or social position. Alcoholism affects everyone and no matter the financial situation or public position, attending it as early as possible and as long as required is imperative. Alcohol abuse may start in teens as well, with close to 700,000 teenagers being involved in binge drinking.
From these statistics it is clear it can start early. However, treatment can become just as early and can become a blessing in disguise for a young person to be alcohol free in their youth.
The health consequences, from liver to cognitive, are real and attending them as early as possible is critical. Depression, heart conditions or cancer may later in life arise if not approached at the right time.
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 common to hear that an AA meeting or going cold turky is enough, weaning from alcohol abuse can be a medical challenge and one that can inclusively be mortal.
Let us take care of your alcohol detox needs and design a program that is extensive, integrative and perfect for you, your loved ones and the life you have always dreamed of free from the pain of alcohol.
