AKUA Mind & Body has individualized gender-specific programs for men and women who are 18 and over.

AKUA Mind & Body is dedicated to provide the highest quality of care. The services offered by AKUA vary slightly by facility, but majorly includes:

Detoxification: AKUA’s integrative detox aims to ensure effective and proper cleansing of your body to neutralize the effects of alcohol or other substance abuse. With the help of the Awaken Your Soul in California, we have developed gender-specific treatment programs so men and women can safely explore and address their personal issues.

Drug addiction: We at AKUA understand that addiction is a complicated disease which requires proper medical guidance and treatment. Our drug addiction programs will help you heal physically, mentally and achieve lasting sobriety.

Dual diagnosis: Addiction often results in co-occurring mental health issues like personality and mood disorder. At AKUA, we provide the best drug and alcohol addiction treatment for not only your addiction but also your mental health problems.

We provide all three levels of care as you progress through treatment. The available levels of care include:

Integrated Detox Program: At AKUA, we understand that men and women experience substance abuse differently and their treatment processes differ greatly as well. That is why we have developed gender-specific detox programs to provide the best addiction treatment that will help keep the focus on recovery.

Residential Program: The beautiful location and unique East-meets-West treatment methods make AKUA more than a treatment center. Our gender-specific residential programs focus on long lasting sobriety and mindfulness-based relapse prevention.

Intensive Outpatient Program: After the successful completion of detoxification or primary care, AKUA will help you return to your responsibilities while maintaining sobriety. AKUA’s Intensive Outpatient Program’s unique holistic approach includes group and individual sessions in psychotherapy, relationship counseling, music therapy, and meditation etc.

The average stay for Integrated Detox Program is 5-7 days, but the length of stay is determined by the history of drug/alcohol use and withdrawal symptoms. The average stay for Residential Program is 30 days. The typical Intensive Outpatient Program program is 20 -30 sessions which translate to 30-45 days.
