Outpatient Mental Health Treatment in California 

Mental health treatment in California offers outpatient mental health treatment for adult men and women who are struggling with a mental health disorder. Mental health disorders can affect every aspect of an individual’s life and, as a result, can have detrimental effects on your relationships, professional endeavors, physical health, and emotional well-being. If you are struggling with a mental health disorder, you may find yourself exhausted, angry, irritated, and sad. Mental health disorders range from mood disorders, including depression and bipolar disorder, to anxiety disorders, personality disorders, PTSD, OCD, and psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. Individuals struggling with a mental health disorder can benefit from entering into treatment at an outpatient mental health facility in California.

AKUA Mind and Body offers outpatient mental health treatment that includes many treatment modalities, including many different psychotherapy approaches, medications, and holistic approaches such as yoga, meditation, and equine therapy. Evidence-based treatment for mental health disorders includes either medications or psychotherapy such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, or a combination of both medication and therapy. Medications are only prescribed for specific conditions, whereas psychotherapy, in one form or another, can be used for every mental health disorder. We also provide individual, group, and family therapy for those who are struggling with a mental health disorder. 

Substance Abuse Treatment in California

Substance abuse is rampant across the United States. From opioids and benzodiazepines to cocaine, sleeping pills, “study drugs’ ‘ and hallucinogens, drugs of abuse can wreak havoc on anyone, regardless of their age or gender.

Drug abuse treatment in California initially focuses on helping the client withdraw from their substance of abuse, in a safe and effective manner. Depending on the drug of abuse, withdrawal symptoms can be incredibly uncomfortable, potentially increasing the relapse rates. Some withdrawals can also be lethal. As a result, medications are administered under supervision to ease withdrawal effects, reduce cravings and prevent deadly withdrawals. Medicines given to ease withdrawal effects can also be given over a more extended period, after detox, once the individual enters outpatient drug abuse treatment in California. This is known as medication-assisted therapy (MAT), and the specific medications that are administered depend on the drug of abuse. In general, there are specific medications for opioids, benzodiazepines, and alcohol.

Therefore it is recommended that individuals enter a drug rehab center in California to ensure that they are in a safe environment while they undergo detoxification and treatment. Detoxification is the first step in drug addiction treatment in California. The next treatment steps focus on recognizing underlying triggers that contributed to your addiction and learning healthy coping skills through therapy to help you overcome future roadblocks and struggles along your recovery journey.

 

Alcohol Abuse Treatment in California

Alcohol is the most commonly used substance in the United States. 16.6 million individuals, or one in 12 adults, are diagnosed with an alcohol use disorder each year. Alcohol negatively affects the individual with the addiction, but alcohol use disorder affects family, friends, co-workers, and many others close to the individual. Many individuals may confuse a “drinking problem” and “alcohol addiction”. Individuals who have an alcohol use disorder or alcohol addiction cannot take a step back and quit drinking. They may not be able to quit because they are psychologically dependent or physically dependent on alcohol. When they try to quit, they will exhibit both psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms. Below are the common signs and symptoms that are associated with alcohol abuse:

  • Inability to control alcohol intake
  • Drunk driving
  • Inability to cut back or quit drinking
  • Using alcohol has a positive reward
  • Experiencing blackouts from drinking alcohol
  • Engaging in risky or dangerous behavior while under the influence of alcohol
  • Feeling guilty and shameful about behaviors while under the influence of alcohol
  • Not completing work tasks or personal obligations because of excessive alcohol use

Admitting you have a poor relationship with alcohol and entering into alcohol abuse treatment in California, can save your life, save your relationships and save your future. Like opioids and benzodiazepines, it is essential to enter into alcohol detox centers in California because alcohol withdrawal can be deadly. Under supervision, medications are administered at outpatient alcohol detox in California to alleviate withdrawal side effects in the hope that you can have a successful start to your alcohol recovery journey.
