Gooden Treatment Options
When a patient is receiving treatment for drug or alcohol abuse it is important that they are in a treatment program that works for them. Each person has a unique background and cannot be lumped into one category and given one standard method of treatment because recovery will not be effective. The Gooden Center is a Los Angeles treatment center that offers quality treatment for each different level of care. The Gooden Center focuses on their patients and what will be the best way for them to recover. Some treatment options at Gooden Center include:
At Gooden Center residential treatment is intensely structured, as the patients who need residential treatment are the most high-risk patients meaning they are new to treatment or are prone to relapse. Being in residential treatment provides them a stable, clean environment with round the clock care and support from the staff. Throughout the day patients are engaged in counseling, therapy and other activities that give recovery full steam ahead. They learn skills to help them when they leave treatment like coping mechanisms, impulse controls and ways to deal with stress. They are on a strict schedule but it is only to keep them focused on their goal.
This type of treatment is for those that do not require round the clock care and are able to go through treatment and still work, go to school or event take care of kids. Outpatient treatment is still very intense and patients are still required to remain sober and not miss any classes.
Sober living patients may be patients who complete either residential or outpatient treatment and still need a supportive environment to live in. They may be clean and recovered but still not ready to live in an environment that is not controlled.
