Drug Addiction Treatment in Orange County – Outpatient

Substance use, commonly referred to as addiction or substance use disorder, is a medical condition characterized by the inability to stop or control the use of drugs, despite the adverse effects on your personal life, professional life, or your physical or mental health. Substance use disorders result in behavioral changes caused by the chemical changes in the brain after continued drug use. Using drugs becomes your primary priority, regardless of the harm you cause yourself or others. You can be at risk of developing a substance use disorder, depending on how much, how quickly, and how often you use the drug. Common drugs of abuse include prescription painkillers (opioids),  cocaine, sleeping pills, psychoactive drugs such as LSD, PCP, and benzodiazepines (nerve pills).

Common signs and symptoms of substance use disorder include

Depending on the drug of abuse, overdose, and withdrawal can both result in death. Therefore you must seek substance use treatment in Orange County if experiencing any of the above signs or symptoms. For example, withdrawing from alcohol or benzodiazepines can be lethal and opioid overdose is also fatal.

Overdose and withdrawal are not the only life-threatening consequences of substance use. Whether it is cocaine, benzodiazepines, or opioids, substance use disorders can wreak havoc on many aspects of your life. Addiction can break up families, destroy relationships, and ruin your career, especially if there are legal consequences. Substance use treatment in Orange County can help individuals work through their addiction and any underlying co-occurring mental health disorders.

Alcohol Use Treatment in Orange County

Alcohol use can be challenging to pinpoint because it can be easier to hide than drugs since alcohol is a legal substance purchased at the supermarket. Alcohol use disorder can be highly damaging to your personal and professional life. The signs and symptoms cannot be hidden forever, especially if you are experiencing hangovers and more moderate withdrawals. For many individuals, a couple of drinks to unwind, celebrate a special occasion, or enjoy with friends can be okay; however, when drinking becomes excessive, alcohol is used for boredom, to cope with challenges, or avoid withdrawals. The individual most likely has an alcohol use disorder. Many individuals with alcohol use disorder will use alcohol as a crutch to deal with social situations and alcohol, in this scenario, is often referred to as a “social lubricant.”Individuals with alcohol use disorder may also use alcohol as a crutch to deal with stress or daily hardships. Instead of facing these problems head-on, with integrity, alcohol is often a way to push the issues under the rug.

Encouraging Words From Clients We've Helped

Common signs and symptoms of alcohol use disorder

Alcohol use disorder can result in many severe acute and chronic medical conditions, and alcohol withdrawal can be deadly. Therefore, individuals should not quit alcohol cold-turkey; that’s when outpatient comes to the rescue. Instead, seek help for your alcohol use disorder in a medically supervised setting. You can be monitored for withdrawal signs and given medications to help curb withdrawal and urges. Akua Mind Body offers alcohol use treatment in Orange County for adult men and women struggling with an alcohol use disorder. The outpatient alcohol detox program in Orange County provides medical detoxification as the initial step in treatment, followed by long-term psychotherapy to help the individual understand the triggers associated with their addiction. An essential goal of psychotherapy is to teach the individual healthy coping mechanisms to help overcome future stressors instead of using alcohol to cope. Alcohol use disorder is a disease of loneliness, as it impairs your ability to socialize and form healthy relationships. As a result, individuals with alcohol use disorder usually alienate themselves from family and friends and turn to alcohol to cope with their feelings. One of the critical components of alcohol use treatment in Orange County is that it takes place in group settings to restore the social skills that are ripped away during this addiction cycle. Group therapy and discussion allow individuals to come together and learn to engage in healthy community support by communicating, trusting, and listening to each other.

We also offer alternative approaches such as equine therapy, yoga, meditation, and other Eastern medicine approaches that complement Western medicine. Akua Mind Body accepts most private insurance.
