Quality care during medical detox: Whether in a traditional hospital setting, or in a sub-acute, clinical, residential-type setting, the detox stage of addiction treatment must be done with a professional health care team. At a minimum, this team should include the physician, nurse(s), and emergency medical technicians, because the medical detox stage of addiction treatment can be life threatening—especially if the patient is detoxing from alcohol, benzodiazepines, and some other categories of drugs.
Inpatient drug rehab programs vary in length depending on duration of drug or substance use, type of drugs/alcohol involved, underlying mixed diagnoses involved, age, and gender. It is important in residential addiction rehab to pre-screen those seeking sobriety for all the aforementioned details.
You are serious about your need for drug rehab, but you want an addiction center in the Los Angeles area that’s private. You want the highest-quality medical detox, but you want it coupled with a holistic approach—diet, exercise, lifestyle. You get that this is drug rehab; still, you wouldn’t mind a little luxury, such as a spa-like setting that is calming and nurturing.
Research consistently says that inpatient drug treatment is most effective. The longer clients are away from old people, places and things, the better. 30 days is not enough time away from home though obviously there are always exceptions (such as lack of child care, FMLA, and loss of health insurance.)
The basic premise of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is that the way we perceive situations influences how we feel emotionally. CBT helps patients gain a more realistic understanding of their thoughts which subsequently allows them to change their behavior. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) was developed as a method to prevent relapse when treating problem drinking, and later it was adapted for cocaine-addicted individuals.
