Alcoholism:The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.Dual Diagnosis:Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.TruVida Recovery - Birtcher Drive\'s dual diagnosis treatment is intended to treat not only their client’s addiction problems, but also the underlying psychiatric diagnosis. With this, they are going to make a comprehensive evaluation on their clients as part of the preliminary procedure. Their experienced in-house clinicians are going to help you confront the problems, such as depression, trauma, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. They understand that substance abuse is brought by self-medication, as people try to find the solutions of their problems on their own, so they turn to drugs or alcohol. Seeing that these things seem to solve their problems even for a short run, they will hang on to it as short-term solutions may be better than having none at all.Mental Health and Substance Abuse:A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.Opioid Addiction:Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Levels Of Care

Medically Assisted Detox:Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one\'s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.Intensive Outpatient:Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.TruVida Wellness is the Outpatient division of TruVida Recovery. Their experienced Clinical team and trained Staff, dedicate their efforts to the mission critical recovery treatment of Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment. PHP actually does not occur in a hospital setting, but typically takes place in an office setting that is licensed with the California Department of Heath Care Services. This insures that all important continuum of care from medically assisted detox, through to outpatient maintenance, and beyond.Inpatient:Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient\'s individual requirements.Intervention Services:Intervention services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict\'s behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.Partial Hospitalization Program:A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a short-term form of intensive rehab, usually for those with acute symptoms that are hard to manage but don’t require 24-hour care. PHPs have structured programming (i.e. individual and/or group therapy), and usually meet 3-5 days a week for around 6 hours (i.e. 9am-3m). Some PHPs are residential (patients sleep on site) and some are not, so patients sleep at home. PHPs can last from 1-6 months, and some offer transportation and meals.Sober Living Homes:Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who\'ve just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.Outpatient:Outpatient Programs (OP) are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Clinical Services

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) impresses upon clients in addiction recovery treatment to recognize and stop negative patterns of thinking and behavior. Since their cognition affects their well-being, changing harmful thought patterns is essential. The essence of CBT is an assumption that a client’s mood is directly related to his or her patterns of thought. For example, CBT can help clients be aware of the stressors, situations, and feelings that lead to substance use so that the one can avoid them or act differently when they occur. Negative, dysfunctional thinking affects a person’s mood, behavior, self-worth, and even physical state. The goal of CBT is to help clients learn to recognize negative patterns of thought, evaluate their validity, and replace them with healthier ways of thinking.Creative Arts Therapy:Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.Experiential Therapy:Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.Family Therapy:Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.Group Therapy:Through group therapies, clients will be able to learn new skills, relearn old ones, and simply express oneself in therapeutic ways. Because group members are peers who are sharing the same end goal—to be able to live a life of sobriety—they will be able to support each other on the way. Group therapies, serving as an outlet for their clients’ personal growth, are one of the crucial steps are needed to be taken to be free from addiction.Individual Therapy:In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.At TruVida Recovery - Birtcher Drive, they are proud to have experienced therapists and psychologists who are well-versed in their fields to serve their clients well. As humanists who are continually researching on ways to improve on their craft, they employ modern techniques that guarantee effectiveness for the clients. Using the results of your initial evaluation, they will customize a plan that is geared towards your needs. According to your progress, updates will be continually made to make sure that you undergo the most comprehensive, efficient, and effective path to recovery.Motivational Interviewing:Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) are counseling therapies designed to helps Clients suffering with substance addictions, to resolve their indifference towards engaging in treatment and stopping their drug use. Motivational Enhancement therapy is based on the premise that a client is responsible and capable of changing. This therapy attempts to arouse a rapid and internally motivated change, rather than guide the client through the addiction recovery process.Nutrition Therapy:Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.
