Why Choose Resurgence

Choosing Resurgence for your detox and rehab program will guarantee personalized care at every level of treatment. We make it easy for you, providing medications during detox to keep you comfortable and safe, and helping you transition between detox and our rehabilitation programs smoothly, without having to change doctors or locations. We are here to support you in every way, from the first phone call with you to years down the road when you need somebody to talk to. At Resurgence, you always have somewhere to turn in your recovery.

Alcohol Detox Program

Alcohol detox should always be done in a safe, medical environment, as the withdrawal symptoms can escalate to severe and dangerous issues like seizures and delirium tremens. To help you stay safe and comfortable through this difficult time, at Resurgence we offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) detox, in which we give medications as needed to ensure no dangerous health issues come up. We can also provide medications to help you rest and mitigate alcohol cravings, as well as further medicines once detox is over to make drinking alcohol unpleasant, helping you stay sober for the long term. Because addiction is not just a biological issue, MAT is an integrated treatment that also includes therapy and counseling, along with medical care, in a whole-patient approach. 

Drug Detox Program

An integrated medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program is usually implemented for drug detox, as it combines 24-hour medical care with the psychological support you may need as the drugs leave your system. The whole-patient approach at Resurgence will ensure that your withdrawal symptoms will not cause you to suffer, as you stay in a safe, sober environment full of trauma-informed, caring staff members throughout your detox period. Severe withdrawal symptoms are mitigated using prescription doses of medication, and our therapists and psychiatric care providers will help you through difficult emotions and symptoms of mental illness. For those in the Costa Mesa area seeking such comprehensive and compassionate care, the alcohol rehab facility Costa Mesa is prepared to provide the necessary support and treatment.

Alcohol Rehab in Orange County (What Is it and what is it like)

After intake and detox, you will move into an inpatient or an outpatient rehabilitation program. Our intake specialists will work with you in advance to determine which type of program will best work for your unique situation. Alcohol rehab usually entails at least a 30-day stay in inpatient rehab to ensure you remain safe, with 24-hour staff available, as you gain the skills and tools you will need to move back home and return to your life. You will live in a comfortable and welcoming facility with a structured environment, attending therapy, activities, counseling, training, and exercise programs, along with plenty of rest and relaxation.

Our partial hospitalization plan will transition you into an intensive outpatient program, where you will live outside the facility but commute in for treatments several hours per week. You will always be supported in our rehab programs, and we will work with you to create a plan that will suit your lifestyle, recovery needs, and personal goals for the future. 

Drug Rehab in Orange County (How Does It Work and What Is it Like)

Drug rehab, like alcohol rehab, can be a combination of inpatient and/or outpatient treatment programs that are targeted to best support you in finding and healing the underlying causes of your addiction.

At Resurgence, you will work on healthy coping strategies to stop unhelpful thoughts and unwanted behaviors. There are several types of therapy to choose from, each with its own focus. Therapy on its own may not solve all your problems, but you will develop healthy sobriety skills and tools to help you deal with stress and difficult situations, and these skills will last you a lifetime. 

Along with physical health care, counseling, and life skills training programs you will be able to build yourself back up into the person you want to be. Our rehab programs at Resurgence will greatly reduce your risk of relapsing and ensure you are ready to move on as an independent, drug-free individual. 

How Much Does Rehab Cost?

 The cost of rehab varies depending on many factors, like how long you stay with us, which medications and therapies are used, and how much your individual insurance plan will cover. We will spend time during your first meeting with us to figure all of this out, but it is important to remember what you will be saving in the long run when you enter rehab, like:

  • Future health care costs if you continue your substance abuse
  • All the money you are spending on drugs and alcohol multiplied over a lifetime
  • Emotional pain and damage to you and your loved ones
  • Energy spent finding and using drugs, and all that comes with the lifestyle
  • The spiritual toll addiction takes on you and those around you

When you consider these factors, it becomes clear that the cost of rehab is always worth it in the end.

How Long is Detox?

Every person has a unique experience during detox, so it is difficult to give an exact timeline. You may spend anywhere from a few days to a few weeks detoxing, depending on factors like:

  • Which substance(s) you were using
  • How long were you using them, and in what amounts and how often
  • The method of use (ingestion vs injection, snorting or smoking)
  • The severity of your addiction
  • Your physical health
  • Your history of drug use and relapse
  • Physiological and genetic factors

You will remain in detox until the physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms have become manageable and your body has stabilized.

How Long is Rehab?

 At Resurgence, we work with each patient to tailor their treatment program to their needs. If you have a mild addiction, without a co-occurring mental illness, a 30-day program may be right for you, whereas if you have been abusing heroin for years, a longer-term stay in inpatient care may be better suited to your needs. 

30 Day (Short Term Rehab)

Short-term rehab at Resurgence is 30 days long, which is the industry standard. This is the minimum amount of time it takes to break old habits and rebuild them into new, long-lasting behaviors. In this time, you will have 30 full days to focus on yourself without distraction, learn new ways to take care of your body, and gain recovery skills that will last a lifetime. A 30-day stay in a Resurgence inpatient facility will greatly reduce your risk of relapsing. 

Long Term Rehab (60-90 Days)

 Long-term rehab is 60 to 90 days in residential care, where you will remain in a comfortable, safe, and sober environment to work and focus on your own recovery away from the everyday stress of your usual life. You will be separated from triggers, drug dealers, and enablers who may trigger a relapse, as you work on yourself and your addiction.

Long-term rehab is recommended for those who have a history of relapsing, a medical condition requiring 24-hour monitoring, a dual diagnosis, or anybody who does not feel ready to move on from inpatient care after 30 days. People recovering from alcohol use, benzodiazepines, and opiate drugs are usually recommended to stay for a longer term in inpatient care as well.

Additional Therapies & Addiction Treatments Available

At Resurgence, we offer a wide variety of therapies and addiction treatments. You may choose from options such as:

  •  Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Rational emotive behavioral therapy
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • EMDR
  • Relapse prevention
  • Life skills and vocational skills
  • Group therapy, SMART recovery groups and 12 step groups
  • Experiential therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • Physical fitness and nutritional support
  • Outings to local attractions and nature
  • Couples Rehab

When one or both people in a relationship has an addiction, it can quickly escalate to a place where the relationship becomes damaged. Resurgence has couples rehab options available, so you and your loved one can come to rehab together as a team, and not only heal yourselves individually but also repair your relationship, bringing you closer together and providing you with an inbuilt support system.

Couples rehab can help you:

  • Avoid further damage to the relationship, financial losses, and emotional distance
  • Learn to hold each other accountable and be each other’s support system
  • Grow and change together as a couple
  • Lower your chances of breaking up or divorcing
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Learn about triggers, enablement, and codependency and how to avoid these traps
  • Gain a higher level of overall relationship satisfaction

Pet Friendly Rehab

At Resurgence, we work with clients on a case-by-case basis to ensure their program will work with their unique situation, and sometimes that includes bringing their pet to residential rehab with them. We are a pet-friendly facility, as bringing your pet with you has benefits like:

  • Not needing to worry about finding them somewhere to stay while you are away
  • Emotional support and companionship
  • Relieving feelings like depression, stress, and loneliness
  • Improving physical and mental states of being
  • Lowering your heart rate and blood pressure
  • Reducing pain and symptoms of trauma
  • Increasing socialization and exercise as you take them on a walk
  • Providing a sense of purpose and self-worth
  • Providing loyalty when it feels like others have turned their back on you or rejected you
  • Giving you something else to focus on other than drug and alcohol cravings

Does my Insurance Have Coverage for Rehab?

Rehabilitation and detox programs are covered by insurance as health care needs, as defined by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). Because each insurance company varies as to what medications, treatments, and plans they will cover, and to what extent, you will want to check your individual plan’s coverage. For those who are cash clients, and those whose insurance does not cover everything, we can work with you to create a payment plan.  


Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a type of detox program offered at Resurgence that was created to help treat addiction without the patient needlessly suffering. It is an integrated program that addresses biological and behavioral components of addiction and helps the patient get through difficult withdrawal symptoms through therapy, medical care, counseling, and medications.

Medications that may include pain relief, help with restlessness, anxiety, and drug cravings, seizure prevention medicine, and blood pressure medication may be provided to keep you safe and as comfortable as possible as your body rebalances brain chemistry and your body removes toxins. These medications (like methadone or buprenorphine) are FDA-approved and provided in minimal, prescription doses as needed, so they will not create a new addiction or get you high.

MAT is a whole-patient approach, improving survival rates and long-term recovery rates, as it deals with issues like mental illness and the underlying roots of addiction, as well as the physical aspects of detoxing. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on the underlying behaviors and emotional disorders that come with substance abuse, teaching patients to modify behaviors and thought patterns, with the rationale that your actions and thoughts can influence the way you feel. It helps patients figure out the “why” of their addiction, and promotes alternative ways of dealing with issues, retraining the brain to avoid negative behaviors. 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) emphasizes the psychological aspects of substance abuse and addiction, helping patients understand the social reasons they use drugs or alcohol, and teaching them ways to identify self-destructive behaviors and negative emotions, then work toward changing them to more positive ones. DBT integrates mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance skills. 

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) focuses on your perspective on an issue, with the “rational” reasoning that there is no good or bad situation, it just depends on how you see it. REBT challenges your thoughts, emotions, and responses to triggers, and provides you with alternative logical and positive responses. 

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Dual diagnosis treatment is an important type of treatment for anybody who has a substance use issue and is also displaying signs of having a co-occurring mental health disorder, including:

  • PTSD
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Mood disorders

When a person who has a comorbid mental illness with addiction gets treatment for one issue, then the other one will appear to worsen. Usually, the causes of the mental health issue and the addiction are the same or they are interconnected in some way, so the only way to truly be able to move forward is to treat them at the same time using an integrated continuum of care. 


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, aka EMDR, is a type of therapeutic approach to treating trauma, panic, and other psychological symptoms by helping the patient reconnect to the sensations and images connected to a traumatic event as they experience dual awareness through tapping or electronic tones at the same time, while in a safe environment. This causes the brain to reprocess the events in a way that is not psychologically disturbing, helping them become “unstuck”, and storing the memories in a normal way. 

Relapse Prevention

Relapse prevention education is an important part of any recovery plan but is especially crucial if a person is recovering from opiate addiction or benzodiazepine addiction, as these drugs tend to have withdrawal symptoms that will return unexpectedly for weeks or even months after rehab is over.

At Resurgence, we will teach you new ways to think and act, so that when temptation or triggers happen you will be ready with a plan. While in rehab, we will work with you to ensure you are ready to handle these feelings, with psychological tools, health care, and support from our team and people at home. You will be ready.

Life Skills Training

Life skills training is a category of programs we offer at Resurgence that gives our patients the tools needed to navigate the challenges of life outside rehab. The need for life skills programs varies from person to person, but generally speaking, there is a set of abilities we can teach that will help you deal with life’s challenges. They can help you:

  • Make thought-out decisions
  • Communicate clearly
  • Handle problems and stress in healthy ways
  • Improve your social skills

These programs will also teach you skills you may have missed out on like personal hygiene information, how to clean a house, and how to manage your own calendar and schedule effectively. You will learn to manage a normal routine while improving your overall health and mental wellness.

Vocational Training

When a person deals with a substance use disorder for a long time, especially when they started drinking or using drugs at an early age, they may have missed out on learning important job skills that are needed to enter the workforce. For some, holding a regular job was never a priority, or it was not a focus of their life.

At Resurgence Behavioral Health, we believe that getting a steady paycheck is a major factor in being able to live independently as a sober individual, without needing to rely on anybody. Getting a job will also allow you the opportunity to meet new people and build new friendships and will add structure to each day as you establish financial independence. 

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a process that takes place between a small group of patients, guided by one or more therapists or group leaders, where you can discuss issues, learn from one another, and learn to express yourself. Going to group therapy can feel like a relief as you hear about the ways other people are having issues, and how they deal with their problems. You may also have the opportunity to help others in a group.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy can take many different forms. It is a technique used in therapy that takes you out of your comfort zone or gives you a new experience, such as role-playing, animal care, making art, or taking you out into nature, and then having you re-experience emotional situations from the past, as you perform the new task. This way, you will be free to express your true self as you keep your mind busy.

While doing these activities, your therapist will guide you through identifying and releasing pain, anger, shame, and trauma. As you will be experiencing a neutral or positive event at the time, it will be easier to reframe your emotional responses. 

One on One Therapy

One-on-one, individual therapy is also sometimes called counseling, psychotherapy, or talk therapy. It is a private meeting with your therapist where you get together to talk about issues, learn new recovery skills and work on improving your overall quality of life. Some issues are hard to face alone, and your therapist can get you through times that feel overwhelming or hopeless.

Family Therapy

Family therapy at Resurgence is a type of counseling between family members that are used to:

  • Resolve conflicts
  • Improve communication
  • Rebuild trust
  • Deepen family connection
  • Help you better understand one another
  • Get through stressful situations
  • Repair damaged relationships
  • Identify behavior that contributes to conflict

As every family dynamic is unique, the therapy provided will be different depending on what you and your loved ones need. There will be help dealing with:

  • Grief
  • Stress
  • Guilt
  • Anger
  • Conflict

We also offer therapy to families of people who are in inpatient residential rehab, so they can learn about addiction, and gain the skills to be able to best support their loved ones when they return home.

Trauma Informed Therapy (After PTSD)

When you come to rehab at Resurgence, you are not just shuffled through treatments as “just another addict”. We recognize that there are most likely several contributing factors to your addiction, including life experiences, stresses, and trauma that will still be affecting you as you enter treatment.

Our trauma-informed staff and caregivers are all dedicated to ensuring you feel safe and heard throughout your treatment, and providing a healing environment, not only from your addiction but also the issues that continue to cause distress or suffering. We recognize the signs of trauma, and how to avoid re-traumatization. We use:

  • Transparent and open decision making
  • Respect
  • Empowerment
  • Collaboration techniques
  • Informed consent
  • Communication building

These are all practices in addiction treatment that:

  • Promote healing
  • Build trust and help you to open up
  • Improve patient engagement
  • Improve overall treatment options 

Physical Fitness

Physical fitness is a part of everybody’s overall treatment plan at Resurgence, because regular exercise, movement, and stretching have benefits like:

  • Reducing chronic pain
  • Increasing self esteem
  • Improving mental health
  • Providing a sense of well-being
  • Distracting from cravings
  • Providing healthy endorphins
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Improving physical health
  • Reducing the risk of relapse

An exercise routine adds structure to the day, and if you join sports teams or attend fitness classes, you will be likely to meet people who care about the health of their body, increasing the chance that you will form positive connections, and make new friends who will support your sobriety and encourage healthy habits.

When provided in combination with therapy, medication, counseling, and other treatments, nutrition and exercise can add to your overall happiness, sober lifestyle. At Resurgence Orange County, you will not only find a full-sized gym in which you can build a new workout regimen, but also basketball and volleyball courts, ping pong tables, and other games that encourage teamwork and raise your heart rate.

Off Site Activities

When you stay in residential inpatient rehab at Resurgence Behavioral Health Orange County, you will have plenty of opportunities to get a change of scenery. We offer optional off-site outings that include excursions like trips to the beach, hiking in the mountains, and even surfing. If you like, you may attend church on Sundays, and there are fun community meetings that foster a community feeling of welcoming empathy and open communication.
