Addiction, also known as substance use disorder (SUD), is listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) as a chronic, relapsing brain disorder. It is characterized by compulsively engaging in rewarding stimuli (e.g., abusing drugs and/ or alcohol) without regard for consequence. Addiction can wreak havoc in all areas of one’s life. Because the disease compels the individual to prioritize satisfying his or her substance cravings above all else, an individual can experience a plethora of adverse effects, including physical complications, relationship fractures, financial strain, legal challenges, employment issues, and more. There are many different types of treatment options available for individuals struggling with substance abuse and/ or addiction.
Inpatient substance abuse and/ or addiction treatment programs offer residential treatment to those in need. They require individuals to reside at the treatment facility for the duration of the program. This offers a more immersive experience with twenty-four-hour supervision and support. Inpatient rehabs provide a relatively controlled environment, free from drugs and alcohol, to enable its residents the ability to place sole focus on the recovery process, without being surrounded by unnecessary triggers and temptations. The specific amenities offered by each inpatient rehab program will vary, as will the cost, residence, and geographical location. Calabasas, for example, is a city in California that is home to several inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facilities. It is a well-known suburb of Los Angeles, located west of the San Fernando Valley and north of the Santa Monica Mountains. Over the past decade, the city of Calabasas has grown in its reputation for luxury as well as for privacy which makes it a hidden gem for residential living for society’s elite, and one of the most desirable destinations in Los Angeles County.
Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs recognize that everyone is different and that each person will require a somewhat customized treatment plan when it comes to recovering from substance abuse and/ or addiction. Tailored treatment plans are developed that incorporate the best possible therapeutic methods which are specifically geared to address each person’s nuanced needs. There are many different types of therapeutic modalities that could be integrated into one’s treatment plan, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), expressive arts therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), and more. In addition to the various therapeutic methods that are offered, regular exercise, healthy eating habits, obtaining ample sleep, and rejuvenating self-care practices are integral components of inpatient treatment programs. Depending on the program, inpatient drug and alcohol rehab can last between twenty-one days long to six months long, and in some cases longer.
