Not all rehab centers offer the same level of quality. Click here to learn what separates the best California rehab centers from the rest..
Did you know that the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) says that 21.5 million Americans battled a substance use disorder in 2014? That’s quite the staggering number, isn’t it?
California rehab centers are famous for their quality, so we get people from all over the country.
If you’re reading this article, you’re probably pretty convinced that you or someone you love needs rehab for some form of addiction, but you’re not sure which facility will best suit your needs.
Choosing the right treatment is a very important decision. However, it can be overwhelming!
When looking for a high-quality California rehab center, here are a few things you need on your must-have list:
Professional Medically Supervised Detox
Anybody who is been through this process before can tell you that the addiction detoxification process can be physically grueling and absolutely soul-wrenching.
This is why you need to go through the process under the careful care and supervision of trained medical professionals who know how to make you as comfortable as humanly possible. Let the professionals do what they can to make sure you are safe. They will keep you in good hands.
Physically speaking, you could experience insomnia, pain or aching, or symptoms similar to severe flu or cold. Detox from substance abuse can really test your body and your mind while making you want to give up or give in.
There’s no need to do it alone. And your odds of success will grow exponentially under the right care.
California Rehab Centers Offer Nature and Activity
You know what they say about idle hands…
California rehab centers give you the climate and the surroundings to get outside and immerse yourself in nature. This can help you in a few different ways.
First of all, if this isn’t the environment you’re used to, and this gives you a chance to experience new things and build new and healthier habits. You can also keep your mind and body busy, so neither go to dangerous places.
The second thing you can do is give yourself a level of peace and solitude that’s hard to find anywhere else. This can help you with mindfulness or meditation, as mindfulness has been proven to help people coping with addictions of any kind.
Mindfulness slows down your busy mind and brings you into the moment. It can also help prevent destructive thoughts before they turn into destructive behavior.
Trained and Caring Staff
Asking for help with your addiction is one of the most challenging things that you can do in your life.
So when you finally do reach out, you want to have full confidence that the people you’ve entrusted with your recovery are capable and committed.
And even though you may feel like you’re suffering like nobody else has ever suffered, take comfort in knowing that the staff at a quality California rehab center has seen it all.
Their experience means there will be no judgment. Literally, their only job is to do their part to make sure you succeed.
An Improved Quality of Life
When you’re dealing with addiction, you typically let a lot of parts of your life suffer. It could be anything from your fitness, to your health, to the state of your home, to your relationships.
When you enter a California rehab center, all you need to worry about is taking care of yourself. All of these other stresses that fed your addiction in the past, will be taken away.
You don’t need to plan your own day, cook your own meals, or worry about anything outside of your own recovery.
The process isn’t going to work if you feel like you don’t want to be here. And California rehab centers are famous for almost having a spa-like setting, that will make you feel good about being there and ensure that you’re comfortable.
A Fresh Start
You may feel like you want to draw a picture of the old you, crumple up that piece of paper, and throw it in the garbage. You want a fresh start.
Do you want to be around people who don’t know the worst parts of you, or have witnessed your spiral into addiction? Or, do you want to be around people who can see the best in you?
Everybody comes to rehab with a clean slate, and it’s the first important step in a fresh start in the outside world as well. Here, you can be the person you want to be, or have always wanted to be.
A Judgement-Free Zone
We touched on this in the previous section. The last thing you need right now is to be tortured by the sins of your past or feel judged in any way.
If you enter group therapy, you will actually be surrounded by like-minded people. It goes beyond a lack of judgment. You will actually experience a new level of empathy and understanding that you’ve never felt in any other circle before.
This will probably be the first time you’ve been surrounded by people who have felt the same pain that you have. And it can be incredibly empowering to know that you’re not alone.
This sounds cliched, but there is a real sense of community. Even if you’ve always been an introvert, and avoided group settings and activities, this could be the best thing you ever do.
