“We Get to Wake Up Thankful to Be Alive and Not Dope Sick Every Day,” Los Angeles Couple Thanks Muse Addiction Treatment Center

Personalized Treatment at Muse

Drug and alcohol addiction can happen to anybody, regardless of where you are from, your age, your social status, your financial status, or your culture. If you abuse drugs and alcohol, you are at risk of developing dependence, leading to full-blown addiction.

Addiction hurts real people every day, and at our Los Angeles drug and alcohol addiction treatment center, our caring team will help you not only stop abusing drugs and alcohol but will also heal the underlying causes of substance use disorders and provide the resources you will need to continue your life in recovery once you leave the walls of our residential rehab center.

A client named Sable writes, “My boyfriend and I are too familiar with death and got to the point where homelessness was comfortable. Knowing we needed to change because we may not survive the next overdose we reached out and got the opportunity to go to Muse detox in Cali… Everyday we are grateful we stayed and have the chance to explore Cali sober and move to sober living…we get to wake up thankful to be alive and not dope sick everyday. We are finally at home.”

Sable and her boyfriend, along with hundreds of other people in recovery, chose to take the chance and reach out for help. Through recovery programs that include dual diagnosis treatment, 12-step treatment programs, group therapy, individual therapy, medication-assisted detox, and other substance abuse treatment, you too can move into sober living in Los Angeles County and beyond.

Detox That Will Help Me Get Through Withdrawal Symptoms

For many people in Los Angeles, California, the fear of withdrawal has become a barrier to seeking alcohol and drug treatment. This is not a baseless fear. Many people have suffered pain, nausea, flu-like symptoms, severe anxiety or depression, psychosis, and intense drug cravings while detoxing from substances like cocaine, heroin, alcohol, prescription medications, and meth. Other people with more severe addictions have had more severe issues, suffering seizures, heart problems, breathing issues, and delirium tremens.

At Muse Addiction Treatment Center, we offer a safe and helpful medically assisted treatment (MAT) program that will get you through the worst parts of your detox without suffering. During MAT, you will:

  • Move into our residential detox and substance abuse treatment center full-time, remaining in a supportive and sober environment with 24-hour medical care available if needed.
  • Have the option to take prescription medications to help you with issues like pain, restlessness, drug cravings, and nausea. You will also be given medications to keep you safe from problems like high blood pressure and seizures.
  • Have rehab options like therapy and counseling and other evidence-based treatments to help you deal with the emotional, social, and psychological impacts of alcohol and drug detox.
  • Begin dual diagnosis inpatient treatments if you have a co-occurring mental illness or trauma for mental health treatment and your drug or alcohol treatment plan.

Detoxing is not the cure for addiction. It is only the first step, so once you feel strong and are cleared to move on, it is recommended to move directly into your rehab program, following your recovery plan in one of the best drug rehabs in Los Angeles.

If you suddenly quit a drug like alcohol without professional help, here’s what you can expect:

Quitting Alcohol Cold Turkey: What to Expect

What Is Inpatient Rehab Like at Muse’s Top Rehab Treatment Center in Los Angeles?

After detox, most people will move into an inpatient residential rehab program with custom treatment approaches customized to their needs. You will live full time inside the rehab center, attending therapy, doctors’ appointments, educational programs, etc. At Muse Addiction Treatment Center’s drug rehab in Los Angeles, we will help you heal your body, mind, and spirit, through holistic treatments, alongside evidence-based programs and physical health care.

We offer family therapy and groups to help you repair damaged relationships and reconnect with loved ones. Dual diagnosis programming will continue if you work through mental illness alongside your addiction, like generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, drug-induced psychosis, mood disorders, schizoaffective disorder, major depression, etc. We use a whole-patient approach to healing. Some of the treatments you may receive include:

  • One-on-one therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Educational programs and lectures about addiction
  • Group therapy, peer groups, and process groups
  • Family programs and couples therapy
  • Nutrition and physical fitness counseling
  • EMDR
  • Mindfulness
  • Art therapy
  • Life skills
  • Vocational skills
  • Spirituality and 12-step methodologies

In your individualized treatment plan, relapse prevention strategies and coping skills are taught, along with healthier habits and stress-management skills. Your everyday life in a rehab will be structured, supportive, and informative, and you will be away from the usual people, places, and substances that may cause you to want to return to substance abuse for a full 30 or more days.

Intensive Outpatient Rehab Programs at Muse

The intensive outpatient program at Muse Addiction Treatment Center is one of the most popular types of programs for people who have completed inpatient rehab and for people who cannot get away from their homes, work, or other obligations to enter rehab. Depending on your preferences, you will live at home or in a sober living home, regularly commuting to the outpatient drug rehab center for day treatment or evening programming.

We use a three-pronged approach to treatment: therapy, 12-step integration, and case management. Through these methodologies, you can address the underlying causes of your addiction and gain new recovery skills. You will attend peer groups, support groups, and meetings with therapists and counselors to talk about issues and regain your footing, taking back control of your emotions, mental health, and life. During IOP, there are approximately 9 to 20 hours a week of group therapy, along with services like:

  • Support groups like SMART Recovery or 12-step groups
  • Recovery tools and stress management skills
  • Psychiatric screening and dual diagnosis treatments
  • Medical treatment, with long-term connections to doctors and medical care
  • Vocational training and life skills training
  • Individual therapy and evidence-based treatments
  • Behavioral therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Family therapy
  • Addressing psychosocial issues like sober living housing, probation, or employment

Every person’s IOP rehab program for drugs and alcohol is customized based on their unique needs and where they are in their recovery process. You can access therapy, groups, and appointments around your busy life, booking them after work or in the early mornings at a time that does not disrupt your day-to-day schedule. IOPs at Muse Addiction Treatment Center can last as long as you need. The intensity can taper off as time goes on until you are ready to move into a less intensive outpatient program with therapy once a week and other drug or alcohol outpatient addiction treatments available as needed. 

What Happens After Rehab Is Over?

Even after your rehab program is complete, you will belong to the Muse Treatment family. You will meet with your therapist to decide how you want to proceed. You may wish to move into a less intensive outpatient program with one weekly meeting with a therapist and fewer group therapy sessions. You can move into our aftercare program that includes:

  • Case management
  • Connections to doctors and therapists
  • Counseling
  • 12-step groups like alcoholics anonymous or narcotics anonymous
  • Community resource groups
  • Family therapy
  • Medical care
  • Vocational training
  • Alumni meetings

Addiction is a chronic disease that needs consistent management, so we will always be there when you need additional support. You are always welcome back at a Muse Addiction Treatment Center, and you can reach out to somebody at our treatment center or join a support group.
