Akua Addiction Treatment - Newport Beach

AKUA Mind and Body offers IOP in Orange County to individuals who are struggling with mental health and substance use disorders.

The IOP treatment at AKUA Mind & Body is a lower level of care which means that it does not require hospitalization, around-the-clock monitoring, or even overnight stays but it does provide a thorough array of treatment approaches for both men and women.

Intensive outpatient mental health treatment requires individuals to obtain at least 9 hours of group and/or individual therapy per week which is divided up into 3-hour sessions 3 days to 5 days per week, for a duration of 12-16 weeks.

This part-time therapy approach allows individuals to continue their daily lives without leaving their jobs or families. In most cases, individuals have previously completed a higher level of care such as a residential treatment or partial hospitalization before entering into an intensive outpatient program.

Approximately one in five adults in the United States experience a mental health disorder each year. That is 43.8 million people (about twice the population of New York) or 18.5% of the U.S. adult population.

Mental health disorders range from depression and bipolar disorder to anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, PTSD, obsessive compulsive disorder, personality disorders and psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. Mental health disorders can make you feel miserable and can impair every aspect of your life, including your social life, your family life, and your professional life. You may find yourself lashing out at others or acting in ways that are very out of the ordinary for you. Common signs and symptoms associated with mental health disorders include:

We provide comprehensive care that includes psychotherapy and medications for adults who are struggling with a mental health disorder. We welcome you with open arms to our mental health treatment center in Newport Beach.  

Drug Addiction Treatment in Newport Beach

Substance use, commonly referred to as addiction, can be life-threatening. Common abuse substances include pain medications (opioids), benzodiazepines (nerve pills), amphetamines, cocaine, and sleeping pills. Common signs of drug addiction include the following: lack of control, inability to stay away from a substance, and decreased socialization, like abandoning commitments or ignoring relationships and ignoring risk factors, like sharing needles, despite potential consequences.

Overdosing is not the only life-threatening result of addiction withdrawal from certain substances can also result in death. Addiction robs you of your family, loved ones, and future life goals. Individuals struggling with addiction often go to extreme measures to continue using. They may steal, lie, and break the law, resulting in legal battles and even jail time. Addiction can destroy families and relationships and wreak havoc on one’s professional life. Substance use treatment in Newport Beach offers individuals multiple therapeutic treatment options, including psychotherapy approaches and medication-assisted detoxification.

AKUA Mind and Body offers outpatient drug use treatment in Newport Beach, allowing individuals to be comfortable while undergoing detoxication and withdrawal. Drug rehab centers in Newport Beach offer individual, group, and family therapy sessions, and we incorporate multiple therapeutic approaches tailored to the individual.

Alcohol Use Treatment in Newport Beach

Alcohol use often goes unnoticed for a long time because alcohol is legal, it is everywhere, and it is easy to hide the signs and symptoms of alcohol use. However, once an individual allows their alcohol use disorder to interfere with their daily functioning, their disorder is often quite noticeable. Especially if they show up to work hungover, skip out on family obligations, run into trouble with the law, begin to struggle financially, or become angry, violent, or disheveled. Alcohol use disorder can result in many serious medical conditions and alcohol withdrawal itself can be deadly if not treated in a medical setting.

AKUA Mind and Body offers alcohol use treatment in Newport Beach for adult men and women who are struggling with an alcohol use disorder. The outpatient alcohol detox program in Newport Beach allows individuals to withdraw from alcohol in a safe and comfortable setting. Medications are given to help ease the painful withdrawal effects and help curb future alcohol cravings. Once the client has successfully completed the withdrawal phase, they start entering psychotherapy which helps the individual uncover underlying triggers that initiated their alcohol addiction. The goal of psychotherapy is to teach individuals healthy coping mechanisms they can use to help overcome future stressors instead of using alcohol to cope. Alcohol use disorder is an isolating disease, as it impairs your ability to function normally in society and form healthy relationships and social connections. Alcohol use treatment in Newport Beach takes place in group settings where individuals come together and learn to engage in healthy community support by communicating, trusting, and listening to each other.

AKUA Mind and Body Newport Beach offers multiple levels of care for mental health disorders, substance use disorders and alcohol detoxification including residential treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient treatment, and outpatient treatment. Our Newport Beach location is pristine within walking distance from the ocean in a quaint beachside community. Upon admission, we have a thorough intake process that screens for mental health disorders, substance use disorder,s or co-occurring disorders as we believe in diagnosis and treating any unknown underlying disorders upon admission. Upon discharge, we offer alumni services as we believe in caring for the individual throughout the lifelong recovery journey. Once an individual is done with treatment, it does not mean they are cured of their addiction and therefore we have a vast network of alumni and community services that we offer to everyone upon discharge.

From intake to discharge, our treatment team at AKUA Mind and Body believes in treating the individual and not just the disorder.
