Surrounded by nature, Muse Treatment offers a full one-on-one continuum of care, with a tailored, individual treatment plan provided for each of our clients.
At Muse Addiction Treatment Center, we use dual diagnosis treatment when a patient shows signs of having co-occurring disorders like a mental health disorder alongside a substance use disorder. We recognize that co-occurring disorders impact one another and the treatment of one can exacerbate the other. They need to be treated at the same time, in the same facility, by the same treatment team, using integrated treatment. Our detox and rehabilitation plans integrate therapies for substance abuse, mental health care, and primary care services, focusing on getting to the root of addiction.
We have multiple payment options, and all care is administered by trained, experienced professionals.
Why Choose Muse?
We treat co-occurring disorders like trauma and mental health conditions alongside the physical symptoms of addiction, so we can create a foundation for a lasting lifestyle transformation that can lead to long-term recovery success.
Our clinic is community oriented, and we provide all levels of care, from detox through to outpatient care, so you can easily transition within the same facility, without having to change locations or health care providers.
When you stay with us you will stay in a home-like room, with a full-sized bed and a TV. Smoking is allowed outside and in designated areas. Snacks are available around the clock, and for fresh, hot, and healthy meals we have an in-house chef, who can easily accommodate any special dietary requirements you may have. At Muse Treatment, we have a couples rehabilitation program, and pets are allowed. We want to ensure everybody is receiving the best care they possibly can, no matter what their situation is at home. At each Muse location we have exercise areas, sports equipment, games and movie nights, and we encourage participation in our offsite outings that may include surfing, hiking, beach trips, and excursions to other local sights and nature. There is also the option to attend church on Sundays.
Many of our staff members are in recovery, so they are especially empathetic, and remember what it was like to be in your position. They are highly trained, and truly want to help. We offer 24-hour clinical care, and have a nurse practitioner on-site daily. Our head nurse is an addictions RN.
At Muse, we care about each patient as an individual, who has unique needs and goals. We have payment options, so that everybody who needs our help can get it.
Muse can also refer you to a high-quality sober living home, an important step for patients who either don’t have stable housing to return to, or who want to continue with a more structured support system to prepare for living on their own. These are homes with structured rules in place like curfews, house chores, mandatory drug testing, and house meetings.
The Muse alumni network is a caring, sober community that hosts group outings, gatherings, and barbecues to grow sober friendships with people who know what you are going through, and can be there for you to help when you are feeling alone.
Alcohol Detox Program
Muse has the top-rated alcohol detox program for people living in Oakland, California. When you decide to enter a rehab program for alcohol addiction, the first step is to stop drinking. Alcohol is a substance you should not try to quit “cold turkey”, because it can have serious withdrawal side effects that can become dangerous or even fatal.
Some of the more mild alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:
- Tremors and shaking
- Headaches and body aches
- Insomnia and nightmares
- Anxiety, irritability and mood swings
- Confusion and brain fog
- Uncontrollable Sweating
- Increased heart rate
If a person has a more severe alcohol addiction, has been drinking very heavily or for a long time, or if other health issues are present, they may experience delirium tremens (DTs) and other serious symptoms like:
- Confusion and agitation
- Auditory, tactile, and visual hallucinations
- High fever
The DTs can sometimes become life threatening, so detoxing from alcohol often requires professional intervention. To avoid these symptoms, and to remain safe, a Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) plan is recommended.
When you enter a Muse detox clinic, you will first be screened for mental health issues or co-occurring ailments so we know whether you will require a dual diagnosis treatment. We review your drug, medical, and psychiatric history, and we talk with you to find out more about your goals, needs and preferences so we can work with you to create a realistic, long-term recovery plan. Our staff uses a trauma-informed approach to ensure you feel safe, respected, and listened-to while in our care. We believe in earning and keeping your trust by creating a collaborative and communicative atmosphere.
Once you are admitted into our detox facility, you will stay in our home-like rooms, with 24/7 clinical staff to provide any medical or emotional support you may need. There are licensed nurses available in the daytime to oversee medications and monitor your health, and therapy and counselling are introduced early in the detox process to take care of any emotions and thoughts that come up as the drugs leave your system. Our head nurse is a certified addictions RN, and the majority of our staff is made up of people in recovery themselves, so you are in good, safe, empathetic hands.
Our medically assisted treatment (MAT) is a process in which you will be monitored 24 hours a day by our expert staff of medical professionals to ensure your health remains steady. You will be administered prescribed doses of medications to help you stay safe, and feel as comfortable as possible through your detox.
After you complete your alcohol detox, we can transition you directly into our residential rehab program. The minimum recommended stay is 30 days, and this is where you receive therapy, counselling, training, and gain the mental space and physical distance from the everyday stresses of life, so you can work on yourself positively, away from the influence of drugs and alcohol. You will gain the skills you need to live independently. After rehab, we offer outpatient programs for when you are ready to move back home or into a sober living home. Connection to our outpatient and alumni communities will help ensure you are supported long after detox and rehab are over.
Drug Detox Program
At Muse Addiction Treatment Center, our drug detox programs are safe and effective, with strong support from medical staff and our counselors. We know that drug addiction can happen to anybody, so we want to make sure detox is available for anyone who needs it.
The withdrawal symptoms that come from detoxing can be scary, so at Muse Addiction Treatment Center, we introduce counseling early in the process to help you deal with any emotions that come up as the drugs leave your system. Our staff uses a trauma-informed approach when giving care. You will remain in control of your own experience. Informed consent and communication is important. We will ensure your detox is as comfortable as possible, without any unnecessary suffering, and that you will feel listened-to.
Almost any drug that forms a physical dependence needs a detox period, and depending on the drug, the amount taken each time, the length of the addiction, and physical issues, your withdrawal symptoms can vary from mild to life-threatening. Whatever your situation, medical drug detox is usually the recommended first stage of drug addiction treatment, especially if you are detoxing from drugs that have serious withdrawal symptoms, like benzodiazepines, alcohol, and opiates. Detox may vary depending on each patient’s medical or mental health, genetic makeup, and family history, so at Muse Treatment, we ensure our treatment programs are tailored specifically to your body, your metabolism and your unique circumstances.
Drug withdrawal symptoms can become extremely uncomfortable and even dangerous. Symptoms may include:
- Body aches and headaches
- Tremors or shaking
- Restlessness or nervousness
- Intense drug cravings
- Anxiety or depression
- Excessive sweating
- Flu-like symptoms
- Nausea, abdominal cramping or diarrhea
- Dizziness or confusion
A medically assisted treatment (MAT) program will help with these symptoms. During MAT, prescription drugs are administered to help take care of the physical symptoms of withdrawal, and counselling is introduced to help with the psychological symptoms you may experience. The medications are prescribed by a doctor, and administered by our nursing staff. They will not create a new addiction or get you high, they are only given short-term to help relieve symptoms.
You also have the choice to do a social detox, if you prefer. This is a detox without any medications administered for symptom relief. You will still receive top-notch care from our clinical staff. They will monitor your progress, ensure you stay safe, and provide counselling and therapy throughout, so you will be supported as you detox without the use of medicine.
Whichever method you choose, detoxing at Muse Treatment is safe, effective, and will reduce the chance of relapse as we will work together to get you through the hardest times as easily and comfortably as possible. We provide a comfortable, safe, and supportive environment, where you can detox the way you want to and get clean, so you can move on to our inpatient rehab facility and really focus on yourself, your sobriety, and your long-term recovery plan.
Alcohol Rehab for Residents of Oakland
Alcohol rehab begins with our intake procedures and then detoxing to get all the alcohol out of your system. During intake, you are interviewed, screened for health and psychiatric issues, and your medical, psychiatric, and drug histories are reviewed. This helps us determine whether you need a dual diagnosis treatment plan, health care beyond our standard care in alcohol rehab, psychiatric medications. It also gives us a chance to get to know you as a person, and find out what you want to get out of rehab. What are your goals? What can we do to make your stay at Muse Treatment a productive and healthy time in your life? We want to create a realistic, long-term recovery plan that suits your needs.
During detox, you will stay in our facilities, with 24/7 clinical staff on site and available to you if you need them. Licensed nurses are around during the daytime so they can ensure you are staying safe while the alcohol leaves your system. Alcohol is a substance that should not be quit cold turkey due to physical symptoms that can become dangerous or even life-threatening. It requires professional care and therapy to reduce the chances of hazardous side effects. At Muse Treatment, we provide a medically assisted treatment for alcohol detox (MAT), in which medications are given to help keep you comfortable and safe. Counseling is provided during this time to help with emotional trauma or other psychological issues that may come up as you detox.
After detoxing, you will seamlessly transition into our rehab program for a minimum of 30 days within the same facility. We offer multiple types of therapy at Muse Treatment, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), experiential therapy, and EMDR therapy. We also provide vocational training to get you ready to enter the job market if you need it, and we offer life skills training to help you prepare to live independently. There is fresh food cooked by an in-house chef, exercise equipment and nutritional counseling. You will find ways to thrive and grow, and gain the skills and healthy coping mechanisms you need to live a healthier, alcohol-free life after rehab.
Once your rehab period is complete, we will create an aftercare program for you that is tailored to your specific needs. We have multiple outpatient options, and can refer you to a sober living home that fits your lifestyle and is near to where you live so you can return to responsibilities like work or school if you need to. Our alumni network will also be available to you every step of the way for added support and friendship.
Drug Rehab for Residents of Oakland
Addictive substances nearly always require a detox period before a person can be in recovery. Detox is only a temporary solution though, as there are social, psychological, and physiological issues that come with addiction that likely need professional intervention to deal with properly.
Because we screen for physical and mental health issues, alongside dealing with your addiction at Muse Treatment, we can formulate a personalized, long-term plan that is personalized to fit your unique needs, goals, and budget. We provide medical and psychological therapies, as well as opportunities for growth like vocational training and life skills courses. You can learn how to live an independent life that is self-directed and healthy, without the use of drugs or alcohol.
At Muse Treatment, we offer therapies like:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Deconstructing destructive behavior, helping you modify unhelpful thought patterns, and finding the reasons behind substance abuse to find healthier ways to deal with issues.
Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
Focusing on your perspective, challenging your thoughts and responses to stress or triggers, teaching you to replace irresponsible actions or self-destructive behaviors with logical responses.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Helping you understand the social and emotional reasons behind self-destructive behaviors and substance abuse, replacing negative responses with positive responses to stress and triggers.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
Reconnecting you with traumatic thoughts or emotions in a safe and measured way, and process traumatic incidents until they are no longer psychologically disturbing, with the belief that the brain may be “stuck” and unable to process and store memories properly due to trauma.
Revisiting repressed negative emotions from the past while having a neutral or positive experience at the same time, like creating art, caring for animals, or doing role playing activities.
Counselling family members to resolve conflicts, improve communication, and help with situations involving grief, anger, stress and understanding one another better.
Meeting with a group of people overseen by therapists to talk about and work through issues together. Group therapy can involve brainstorming, helping one another, seeing how others deal with their problems, talking and listening, while promoting social and communication skills. You can meet others and have the opportunity to forge new friendships with people in similar situations to you so you won’t feel alone in your recovery.
One-on-One Talk Therapy
Discussing issues with a therapist, learning coping strategies and skills to deal with stress, improve quality of life, and stop unwanted behaviors and thoughts.
All our therapies are done using trauma-informed methodology. This is the idea that healthcare workers need to treat everybody with respect and understanding, because we don’t know where people have been in life. Many people have had difficulties in the past with people of authority, people in health care, or have fear around medical care or being put in a vulnerable position. Trauma-informed practices like keeping the patient informed, getting consent, and working together in a collaborative way instead of just telling the patient what is going to happen can improve treatment outcomes. At Muse Treatment, we want to earn your trust and keep it throughout your treatment. We want you to feel safe, heard, and to take an active role in your healing.
Each person’s rehab program is customized to them, depending on their beliefs, goals, and needs. You will have 24-hour access to medical and emotional support from our highly trained, empathetic staff, and our facilities offer structured daily living in a peaceful, community-oriented setting.
Muse Treatment is the top-rated drug rehab facility for people in Oakland, and our goal is to make drug rehab accessible for everybody who needs it. Most residential programs are 30, 60, or 90 days long. The longer you stay in rehab, the lower your risk of relapsing in the future will be.
Once you are ready to move on, we can refer you to a sober living home if you require support at home that your family and friends are not ready or equipped to provide for you. These homes typically have strict rules that must be followed like:
- Mandatory drug testing
- Involvement in house chores and rules
- Active participation in recovery meetings
- On-time fee/rent payments
- No drugs, alcohol, violence, or overnight guests
With a sober living home, you will never have to feel alone in your recovery. You can spend time around like-minded sober people who will help you stay on track, as you are reinforcing the lessons you learned in rehab while you transition back into normal life.
We have many aftercare options, including outpatient programs that will incorporate what you have learned in rehab into real-life situations, and a vast alumni network who are always there to offer support and friendship. With Muse Treatment, you will always have somebody there for you throughout your journey towards an independent, sober life.
How Much Does Rehab Cost?
At Muse Addiction Treatment Center, we customize treatment plans to help fit any budget, and we offer payment plans for our clients paying in cash. We want to provide a safe and respectful environment available to anybody who wants to detox and rehabilitate, making it available to anybody who needs it.
If you have health insurance, rehab is included as an essential health benefit, so make sure you look into that option as well to see exactly what is covered in your plan.
How Long is Detox?
Detox can take anywhere from a few days to weeks, depending on your individual health, history, and what you are detoxing from. In general, your first withdrawal symptoms can show up as quickly as two hours after your last use. The peak of withdrawal symptoms is usually at the 72 hour mark, and then it tapers off over the next seven to ten days, and you gradually feel better as time goes on.
At Muse, we believe a medically assisted treatment (MAT) plan is the best way to detox, for safety reasons, and for comfort. Stopping drugs or alcohol can be dangerous if not supervised by professional health care workers, because of severe withdrawal symptoms. We monitor our patients around the clock, providing prescription medications as needed to help ease symptoms like aches, insomnia, drug cravings, dehydration, and more.
Once detox is over, we can easily transition you into our short- or long-term inpatient rehab care, for a more integrated, in-depth treatment to give you the tools to maintain your sobriety for the rest of your life.
How Long is Rehab?
At Muse, we tailor your experience to best fit you and your needs, so the length of rehab is ultimately up to you. Our minimum recommended stay is 30 days, and then we offer a 60- and a 90-day program option for residential treatment. We always urge our patients to remain in Muse care for as long as they feel they need.
Staying in a Muse residential rehab facility, away from your everyday life triggers and stressors, surrounded by a community of welcoming, sober peers is beneficial, as you can focus on your own recovery, without distractions. A longer stay is recommended for those with a history of relapse, as the longer you remain in inpatient care, the better the chances of staying sober long-term.
30-Day Rehab (Short-Term Rehab)
Our 30-day, short-term rehab program will allow you a full month staying in our residential treatment center, with access to all our amenities, 24-hour medical and emotional support, and our community-oriented facility. You will attend therapy sessions, learn life-skills and vocational skills, and learn to take care of your mental and physical health, so you will be able to live a healthy, independent life after rehab is over. Muse is a welcoming, open place, where you will be surrounded by like-minded peers, with structured daily living, exercise facilities, and health and nutritional support.
30 full days of working on yourself is enough time to make a change, especially for those who are highly motivated in their recovery, and who have a supportive environment to return to after rehab. A 30-day stay at Muse will significantly lower your risk of relapsing.
Long-Term Rehab (60-90 Days)
Long-term rehab gives you extra time to work hard on yourself, both physically and mentally, while gaining the tools you will need to live a healthy life without the use of drugs or alcohol. You will stay in a comfortable, sober, community-oriented Muse rehab facility, surrounded by peers, living a structured life where you will attend regular therapy sessions, and have access to community gatherings and outings, diet plans, nutritional support, exercise facilities, games, and movies, with a 24-hour clinical staff onsite.
Long-term rehab is especially beneficial for those who feel they are not ready to leave rehab after the 30-day period is over, or for those with a higher risk of relapsing. At Muse Treatment, the focus is on long-term recovery, and learning to navigate life as a sober person.
At Muse Treatment, we offer customized couples rehab programs, so you and your partner can rehabilitate from drugs and alcohol together, while at the same time working on your relationship health through couples therapy. Addiction is a complicated disease, and when it is woven into the fabric of a relationship, takes an integrated rehabilitation to get to the root of the issue. Our expert team will help you and your partner learn healthy relationship skills, and you will work on yourselves together and as individuals in therapy. You will create a positive framework for your new sober life after rehab, and be there for each other as a sober support system.
Couples who go to rehab together show a higher level of relationship satisfaction and are more likely to remain sober, even when compared to couples who both go to rehab, but separately. Your relationship is a big part of your life, and with Muse Treatment, we can help you remain together, with good communication, responsibility, accountability, and other tools and healthy coping mechanisms to prevent relapse, and achieve long-term recovery.
Having to make the choice to leave a pet behind while you enter rehab can be incredibly difficult. You will need to arrange for somebody to watch them or find a way to pay for boarding. This decision can be a barrier for people trying to enter rehab. At Muse Treatment, you don’t have to make this decision, because pets are allowed in our facility. You won’t have to worry that they aren’t being taken care of properly, because they will be there by your side, providing companionship and emotional support when you need them most.
Having a pet around is beneficial to our patients in many ways. They can improve physical and emotional states, they can lower your heart rate and provide stress-relief, and they provide a sense of purpose and feelings of self-worth. Muse welcomes your pet, so you can truly relax and feel a little more at home while you are staying with us.
Does My Insurance Have Coverage for Rehab?
Yes, your insurance should have coverage for rehab. Under the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, mental health and addiction services are included in essential health benefits.
At Muse, we take most PPO insurance, but it is a good idea to get in touch with your provider and find out exactly what treatments and medications are covered under your specific plan, because each provider has different guidelines.
