Addiction Treatment in Orange County

Addiction Treatment in Orange County Resurgence Behavioral Health

An Overview of the Addiction Treatment Process

When it comes to addiction treatment, if you have never been to rehab but are considering seeking professional help with an alcohol or drug substance use issue, you may be curious what the process of going to rehab is like.

There are separate phases and levels of care throughout rehab. You usually begin with an intake process, then detox so the remainder of the drugs or alcohol can leave your system. After detox comes a rehab program. Rehab is a big umbrella term for several types of programs. You can live inside a facility full-time for 30 to 90 days in an inpatient or residential program, and there are also outpatient programs that allow you to live at home or in a sober residence as you recover from addiction. The intake process is what helps determine the best course of action for your unique issues.

Types of Addiction Treatment Programs

The following is a list of common addiction treatment programs that are used in many rehab facilities across America.

Medical detox

A medical drug and alcohol detox Costa Mesa program is one that is specifically tailored to the needs of a patient with a severe substance use issue. Heroin, benzodiazepines, and alcohol are substances that often require a medical detox.

Patients have full-time medical monitoring to ensure they remain safe through difficult and dangerous withdrawal symptoms that come with these substances and may be provided with FDA-approved medications in minimal, prescription doses when needed, to ease discomfort and distress as drugs and alcohol leave the body. For those seeking such dedicated medical support in the Costa Mesa area, alcohol rehab near Costa Mesa offers the necessary facilities and expertise to ensure a safe and effective detox process.

Buprenorphine, methadone, lofexidine, disulfiram, and acamprosate are common medications provided in medical detox.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

In medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs for detox, medications are provided along with counseling and therapy in a whole-patient approach to healing. These medications are given to help the patient’s body and brain chemistry stabilize, and to reduce overall suffering as they detox. MAT treatment programs have been proven to:

  • Help people remain in treatment
  • Increase survival rates of patients
  • Reduce opiate abuse
  • Decrease criminal activity

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient substance abuse treatment is a type of alcohol and drug rehab that is provided inside a hospital or a clinic. Medical care and supervision are provided, and there is always nursing or other medical staff available to the patients if they need anything. Inpatient treatment usually involves:

  • Medications
  • Counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Ongoing assessment of addiction
  • Monitoring of goals

Once a patient has completed their stay in inpatient rehab, they usually move directly into an outpatient rehab program or another ongoing treatment plan.

Residential Treatment

Residential rehab is a treatment option that is like inpatient rehab but usually lasts longer, from a few weeks to several months depending on the person’s unique needs. These types of programs often occur outside of hospitals or addiction treatment centers, full-time, in a home-like environment. The goal of long-term residential treatment programs is to address underlying behaviors, mental health issues, and the development of social skills in a comprehensive, whole-patient program.

Partial Hospitalization Program

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is an outpatient program used as an alternative to an inpatient/residential program. Taking place in clinics or hospitals, these programs provide intensive services to people who either live outside the treatment center, at home, or in a sober living facility. They will receive treatment during days, evenings, and/or weekends, returning to their residence at night. In general, patients in a PHP will spend more time in treatment than patients in other types of outpatient programs.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a program in which the patients live at home or in a sober living facility but come to a rehab center for medication management services, as well as programs like group therapy and individual counseling. In some cases, there is also online counseling available. An IOP program is usually around nine hours per week of services and can be more flexible in scheduling than a partial hospitalization program.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient rehab is usually less than nine hours per week of treatments, involving individual and group therapy, along with continued access to medical care and medication services as needed. These types of programs allow patients to live outside of rehab campus and schedule appointments that work best for their lifestyle, offering plenty of flexibility. There may be virtual/distance options available, so if you live in Santa Ana, Newport Beach, Mission Viejo, or Corona Del Mar, but want to attend an Orange County drug and alcohol outpatient rehab, you may be able to find a program that suits you.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis treatment is a specialized program that treats a person who has both an addiction and a mental illness at the same time. It uses integrated treatments that address addiction and mental health conditions at the same time, such as medications, therapy, counseling, and supportive services. Treating both issues at once is the best way to ensure the patient does not relapse.

Court-Ordered Treatment

When a person has a substance abuse issue or addiction and has committed a drug-related offense, sometimes the court will give court-ordered detox and rehab as a mandated legal consequence in the place of incarceration, or to reduce the length of probation. It may include counseling, educational programs, inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, community-based programs, and one-on-one behavioral therapy. Court-ordered drug treatment is given in the same types of facilities as voluntary treatment and is just as effective.

Faith-Based Rehab

Some patients may prefer a faith-based rehab to a secular rehab facility, as it looks at addiction recovery through a spiritual lens. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is one of the most well-known of these types of programs, with approximately two million members worldwide. Some benefits people find to attending a faith-based treatment facility include:

  • Increased optimism
  • Lower anxiety
  • Higher stress tolerance
  • Finding a spiritual balance
  • Finding inner strength


 Aftercare programs are programs a person can join after they have completed their time in inpatient, residential, and outpatient programs. It is a valuable resource to help patients prevent relapse, as it gives them somewhere to turn and somebody to talk to when they run into an especially difficult trigger or temptation when out in the world. Each facility has its own services offered to alumni, but these may include:

  • Continued connection to medical care and therapy
  • Ongoing counseling services
  • Participation in support groups
  • Case management services
  • Peer support services


Alcohol and Drug Detox

At Resurgence Behavioral Health clinic centers in California, we offer a tailored, integrated medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program that includes:


  • A comfortable, home-like environment with a full-sized bed where you will live full-time
  • 24-hour medical oversight, providing peace of mind and professional medical care, including a trauma-informed, nonjudgmental nursing staff that is available at any time if you need to talk
  • Medications given as needed to keep you comfortable and safe as your body rebalances itself
  • Therapy and counseling during the day to begin the process of finding the underlying causes of your addiction as you work through difficult emotions and thoughts that may come up during detox
  • Dual diagnosis treatments will begin at this time to help you deal with mental health conditions like ADHD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, and others as you detox
  • Access to our residential inpatient treatment programs and outpatient rehab programs immediately after detoxing is complete

Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient rehab at Resurgence offers:

  • 24-hour care and support
  • A clean, safe, sober, caring environment
  • A community-oriented facility
  • Drug rehabilitation
  • Alcohol rehab in Orange County

  • A variety of therapy options
  • Nutritional support and exercise programs

Outpatient Rehab

Resurgence has numerous outpatient programs to choose from, including:

Partial hospitalization program – a transitional program designed to help people moving from inpatient care to use their new recovery skills in the real world while receiving strong professional support in full days of treatment

Intensive outpatient program – a step down from the PHP with more flexibility, allowing patients to live their normal life with the group and individual therapy scheduled in the evenings or on weekends

Virtual intensive outpatient program – a version of the IOP that is offered at certain locations, in which all therapy and counseling is offered via an online platform


Most facilities for drug and alcohol rehab will offer aftercare programs and treatments for those who have completed their detox, inpatient rehab, and outpatient treatment programs. At Resurgence, patients will receive strong support for as long as they need, months or even years after rehab.

Sober Living

Sometimes living at home is not the best place for a person in outpatient rehab or recovery. You may want to consider moving into a sober living home (sometimes, known as a halfway house) if you want to live in a place that provides:

  • A 100% sober place to live
  • Structure and accountability
  • Sober peers and social connection
  • Access to counseling and therapy
  • Help finding a job/place to live/etc.

You will have to abide by the rules of the house, which often involve random drug testing, house rules, curfews, and rules about guests. At Resurgence, if we do not have a sober living home on-site, we can refer you to a high-quality, trusted partner home.

How Long Does Addiction Treatment Last?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), treatment length varies for each person, with inpatient rehab usually shorter than outpatient programs, but it has been noted that the programs that are shorter than 90 days total have a lower success rate than the longer-term programs. New habits and behaviors take time to settle in, especially if you have a severe addiction like opioid abuse or benzodiazepine dependence.
