What happens at a Los Angeles Drug Treatment Center?
The immediate goal of drug rehab is to safely clear any residual effects of drug use and drinking from the mind and body. Treating drug addiction and alcoholism begins with a clear understanding of patterns of behavior and that takes a clear head to understand. Clients often experience a sense of relief just to be taken out of the immediate circumstances that led to drug rehab. Treatment involves a close examination of the consequences and a patient history of past behaviors that need to be countered. This is part of the individualized treatment plan that our clients receive soon after intake processing and assessment from an alcohol and addiction specialist. The next phases depend on the client and involve a form of behavioral therapy and counseling both one-on-one and in a group setting where individuals can feel that they are not alone with their problems. Often family counseling is recommended and support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous are also encouraged.
