California Residential Treatment: A California Drug Treatment Program

Residential Drug Program: Moving Into A California Drug Treatment Facility

A residential drug program wants to help you or your loved one move toward a life of sobriety.  There are steps to sobriety. It doesn’t happen overnight. It happens gradually with time and hard work. Some people don’t want to go to a California drug treatment facility because they are afraid they are going to fail. They are afraid that they are going to fall apart during the detox process. Detox is different for everyone but it can be challenging. However, there are doctors and trained staff on hand to assist and addict through the detox process. They are not at it alone. They are monitored and helped through the process.

Once they are out of detox they are assigned to different therapy groups. Talking about ones addiction problem with other addicts not only makes the addict take ownership of their addiction problem but also hearing other addicts talk about their addiction problem makes an addict not feel so alone. Addiction can be lonely. Like any illness or disease you wonder why you are being singled out. Why does alcohol affect you different than say your friend? Why can’t you have one or two glasses and be okay? Why do you drink until you are falling over on the floor? What is it about you? Rehab explores all of those questions and tries its best to give you some answers.

Residential Drug Program: Can’t I Get Clean In My Own Home?

A residential drug program tries its best to make rehab as comfortable as possible. It knows that an addict would rather be at their home than in rehab where they can go to bed in their own bed. However, there are reasons, good reasons why a residential program is better for an addict than their own home when it comes to getting clean.
