AT WHITE HOUSE RECOVERY & DETOX
Addiction treatment can take many forms and often includes a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT), behavioral therapy, and psychotherapy. These treatments aim to support, educate, and teach evidence-based coping methods and move forward in recovery.
Addiction treatment in Los Angeles with White House recovery involves a number of evidence-based treatments. Most facilities, including White House Recovery and Detox, utilize a combination of one-on-one counseling, group therapy, and medication when necessary to treat substance use disorder (SUD).
The act of ingesting drugs or alcohol does not mean someone is addicted. Many factors determine whether a person will become dependent on a substance or not, such as genetics, current health, and family history of addiction.
You can get stuck in a cycle of addiction, making it harder to use available resources to stop. Researchers have pinpointed three distinct stages of addiction, and they each impact different areas of your brain. A report by the Surgeon General explains the addiction cycle as following these specific steps:
MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT ADDICTION TREATMENT
Here are some truths to clarify the many misconceptions surrounding addiction treatment from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Being aware of these truths is essential before you start any treatment program:
MAT and other treatments are only the first steps towards long-term sobriety and recovery from SUD
Individualized treatment plans are holistic and will find ways to address all of your needs, not only the addiction
There is no one “fix-it” treatment because everyone has different physical, mental, and emotional needs
Addiction can be successfully treated
One of the very first steps in treating substance abuse and addiction is detox. Detox is the process of ridding the body of a particular substance; in this case drugs or alcohol.
When an individual goes through detox, they will experience withdrawal symptoms. Depending on what substance and length that person used, withdrawal symptoms can last from hours to weeks.
That’s where an addiction treatment center like White House steps in. We utilize the best practices to make sure you get through your detox process safely.
Addiction is a disease that affects your body, mind, and spirit. Our team at the inpatient drug rehab center in Los Angeles includes doctors, counselors, and other addiction treatment professionals who will help you heal your body.
We utilize holistic therapies to restore balance to your mind by helping you identify and manage the factors contributing to your addiction.
Individuals attending an outpatient drug rehab center program with White House Recovery and Detox will receive group and individual therapy while they work towards sobriety.
Outpatient care is an amazing program to stay motivated during recovery. With the number of therapeutic modalities offered at White House, individuals and behavioral health professionals work together to customize a plan that best suits their goals.
Often, people who have SUD will also be diagnosed with other mental health conditions that may complicate the treatment for their addiction. Each diagnosis must be treated to ensure holistic healing and recovery. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, approximately 7.7 million American adults have SUD and at least one other co-occurring mental health disorder. Out of that number, around 52% never got treatment for their addiction or mental health concerns. The primary causes are an inability to pay the high costs or unwillingness to stop taking the addictive substance.
Those are tragic numbers, but you are more than a statistic! You are already taking steps towards a healthier, happier future by looking into resources available in your area. Professional treatment at a recovery facility is one of the most successful forms of treatment for people who have a dual diagnosis.
