Do You Help With Transitional Care?

At Surf City Recovery we know that no two clients are alike. That is why no two Outpatient Programs will ever be the same. Our team individualizes programs to fit the needs of each patient. We will help each client transition from full addiction treatment to an outpatient rehabilitation program, then on to a drug free residency. These transitional structured living homes provide each resident with a safe, alcohol and drug free setting for extended care. We believe that this is crucial to providing individuals with the opportunities they need to properly use the principles they have learned in their outpatient rehab program into real-life practice. They will also benefit from being immersed in a unique, recovering community of individuals who understand the struggles they face.

What is Involved in the Detox Process?

Detoxification is the first step in any drug treatment program. This unpleasant process is necessary because it allows the body to rid itself of drugs and/or alcohol while allowing medical professionals to manage the withdrawal symptoms. Detoxification can be painful and should not be undergone without proper medical supervision. Withdrawal symptoms are the main reason for most of the unpleasant side-effects of detox. These will usually occur after long-term drug use. Physical symptoms of withdrawal will depend on the drug, but can include restlessness, pain, diarrhea, insomnia, vomiting, and hot or cold flashes. These usually subside in a few days. Other symptoms, like depression, can last for many weeks. Luckily, many of the physical symptoms of withdrawal can be treated and managed with medication. If you need to detox in Orange County, come to the safe and highly effective center at Surf City Recovery.

What is Involved in Your Drug & Alcohol Rehab Program?

That is why Surf City Recovery offers 30, 60, 90 and up to one year programs to meet all needs. All phases of our treatment programs include family group and educational lectures throughout the entire course of treatment. A typical rehabilitation plan goes as follows:

  • Phase I – Patients will identify the impact their addiction has had on their life to allow them to see the unmanageability of their abuse. This program is 6 days a week and typically lasts for 20 to 24 sessions. The main objectives of this phase are goal setting, family programs and individual counseling.
  • Phase II – Two days a week clients learn to identify and express their thoughts and feelings during therapy and group sessions. They come to understand that there is a community of support. This phase also includes relapse prevention strategies.
  • Transitional Living and Beyond – Once you have complete your program, you will transition into your new, sober life. Surf City Recovery offers a special aftercare program that includes small group interaction, intense accountability and even monitoring. We offer two online group sessions per week which help you gentle immerse yourself back into daily life and grow in your sobriety.
