What Is Addiction?

As a chronic condition, addiction (including alcoholism) is marked by obsessive or uncontrolled substance use despite the severe repercussions and long-lasting alterations of the mind. For those who abuse substances over an extended period, these changes in the brain may result in harmful behavior. As a relapsing condition, SUD can recur throughout your lifetime. Even after abstaining from drugs or alcohol, a person may relapse and begin using again.

A person's first step on the road to developing a SUD starts with using a substance. A person's capacity to refrain from doing so diminishes with time. Eventually, compulsive drug-seeking behavior and use occur. One reason for this is the impact on brain function that prolonged drug use has. There are several regions of the brain affected by addiction, including those involved in motivation, memory, and regulation of behavior. Only concerted efforts in a supportive recovery environment can help get you back on track and build a new life. This requires a personalized treatment plan.

Personalized Treatment Plans

The purpose of the admissions interview is not just to determine if our services are right for you, but also to allow our medical and therapeutic team to create your personalized treatment plan. This treatment plan will be the guide for the treatment you will receive at California Care Detox & Treatment. As a critical part of our program, treatment plans follow a number of established guidelines:

  • Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior.

  • No single treatment is right for everyone.

  • People need to have quick access to treatment.

  • Effective treatment addresses all of the patient’s needs, not just their drug use.

  • Staying in treatment long enough is critical.

  • Counseling and other behavioral therapies are the most commonly used forms of treatment.

  • Medications are often an important part of treatment, especially when combined with behavioral therapies.

  • Treatment plans must be reviewed often and modified to fit the patient’s changing needs. Treatment should address other possible mental disorders.

Collaboration and Planning

At California Care Detox & Treatment, we recognize the value of fostering a friendly and collaborative community in which individual preferences and objectives are taken into consideration when developing a treatment plan. Our clinical staff believes in the need for open and honest communication in order to give our patients a sense of control over their rehabilitation. To identify any areas of treatment that may need to be changed, California Care Recovery uses goal-oriented therapies in conjunction with frequent progress check-ins. All of our patients receive the assistance they need to reach their recovery objectives.

Treatment Policy and Expectations

In our program, we provide a home-like setting in which everyone participates in community-based and one-on-one therapeutic programs. The California Care Detox & Treatment team monitors therapy and social interactions to ensure that all participants are safe and well-cared for during their stay. We have a large number of patients who have transferred from other programs that no longer fit their needs and goals. Our community residential treatment program offers a safe environment in which persons may develop and acquire new skills in order to become more self-sufficient.
