What is Residential Treatment?

AKUA’s Alcohol treatment center San Diego is an around the clock intensive level of care for males and females who struggle with cravings on an ongoing basis and who need monitoring 24/7 to prevent relapse. Adult males and female clients who enter into San Diego rehab facilities usually cannot go more than a day or two without drug use, regardless if it is prescription opioids, alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, heroin, amphetamines, prescription benzodiazepines or any other prescription or street drug of choice. San Diego rehab facilities on average typically last 30-90 days, depending on the severity of the client’s drug addiction and individuals receive on average 5 hours of therapy a day which includes a broad range of therapeutic approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, dialectal behavioral therapy, group therapy, family therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and trauma-informed care. AKUA Mind and Body Outpatient Rehab San Diego uses a combination of westernized evidence-based treatments with Eastern therapeutic modalities such as yoga, laugh therapy, and acupuncture.

What is San Diego Drug Detox?

AKUA’s San Diego Detox offers individuals who are still using or who are a risk of withdrawal. Physical dependence and withdrawal go hand in hand, meaning that an individual is physically dependent on a substance if they exhibit withdrawal symptoms physically in the absence of this substance. Detoxification involves eliminating the drug of addiction for the client’s body in a safe and controlled atmosphere for the client to undergo minimal side effects during this withdrawal period. Medications are often given to ease with withdrawal symptoms, especially if the client is addicted to opioids, alcohol, or benzodiazepines as withdrawal from these substances can be brutally painful and life-threatening. Detox on average takes 72 hours to a few days to eliminate the drug of abuse from the body, and then the individual can enter into residential care where therapy can begin to identify underlying triggers associated with the addiction and to develop healthy coping strategies that can be used in everyday practice.

How Effective is Residential Rehab Treatment?

Although there is no single treatment that’s right for everyone, residential rehab is one of the most effective forms of care for drug and alcohol addiction. According to statistics, 51% of individuals who enter residential treatment will complete residential treatment, and 21% remain sober after five years. The success rate of drug treatment programs does not depend on achieving complete sobriety, but rather on improving the individual’s quality of life as a whole.

Do you need Residential Rehab Treatment?

The following are common questions to ask yourself if you think you have an addiction and need a higher level of care:

  • Have you ever tried to stop drinking/using for a week or longer but only lasted a couple of days?
  • Has your addiction ever caused you trouble at home?
  • Has your addiction ever caused you trouble with your job?
  • Have you ever felt the need to use in the morning to curb shakiness?
  • Do you have “blackouts”? A blackout occurs when you have been using for a period of time and you cannot recall any events.
  • Do you use when you are stressed out, disappointed or are in a fight with someone?
  • Have you ever had withdrawal symptoms from alcohol or drugs? These can include a racing heart, nausea, vomiting, tremors, or seizures.
  • Have you ever operated a motor vehicle while under the influence?
  • Have you ever tried to hide your drug habits from your friends or family?
  • Has anyone close to you expressed concern about your drug or alcohol use?
  • Do you often find yourself in a hurry to have your first drink of the day?
  • Do you ever feel disappointed or uncomfortable if alcohol or drugs are not available in a social setting?
