If facts are to be believed, more than 24 million Americans are into some form of substance abuse or chemical dependency. They are abusing illegal drugs or substances such as cocaine, heroin, Marijuana and/or alcohol. It is even more alarming to know that some of the users of such illicit substances are as young as 12 years. The data has been published by The 2012 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse. California Recovery is a leading and reliable Substance Abuse Facility providing a comprehensive range of services to help people fight chemical dependency and drug abuse.
What is substance abuse or chemical dependency?
Substance abuse or chemical dependency is a physical as well as psychological dependency or habituation to a drug such as heroin and alcohol that can result in alteration of judgment, attitude, attention, perception and even physical control or movement of body. Sometimes, in some cases, many substances may lead to withdrawal syndrome such as anxiety, seizures and even hallucinations upon cessation or reduction in the amount of the substance used.
What is worse is tolerance associated with several substances including alcohol, tranquilizers, opiates, and stimulants. It is a phenomenon where one must use a larger amount of the drug to produce the same level of intoxication. It is important to note here that drug overdose may also cause death.
California Recovery is an affordable drug and chemical dependency rehab facility in Southern California and has helped more than 5,000 men and women win their fight over substance abuse and get back to a normal, healthy life.
Why California Recovery as a Rehab Facility?
At California Recovery, we understand that the dependence potential of a drug varies from substance to substance, and from individual to individual. This means the treatment path and program may vary from one person to another and this is what we follow at our substance abuse facility. We have designed our rehabilitation program to include 30 to 90 days residential treatment, the number of days depending on the severity and level of the chemical dependency of the residents.
Some of the salient features of our rehabilitation program include:
- Well-structured, intense program catering to specific needs of individuals
- Regular individual one-on-one as well as group counseling
- Intervention services and daily assignments
- Puppy therapy
- Family groups
- Serene location and proximity to beaches and parks
- Beautiful sober living homes
- Softball and volleyball arrangements for residents
Our Sober Living program allows residents to successfully reintegrate into society by offering a transitional period wherein residents after completing their residential treatment continue to live in a structured or controlled environment. During this period, strong peer support is provided and residents are encouraged to actively participate in the community and seek employment or volunteer for work. The program is designed to regain their physical, mental and emotional strength and confidence to join the mainstream and lead a balanced, healthy life.
