What to Expect in Rehab

If you or a loved one is considering entering rehab for addiction treatment, Huntington Beach Recovery Center wants you to know what to expect.

Assessment and Evaluation : When you first enter rehab, you will undergo a comprehensive assessment and evaluation to determine your specific needs and create an individualized treatment plan.

Detoxification : If you are physically dependent on drugs or alcohol, you will likely undergo a medically supervised detoxification process to manage withdrawal symptoms and ensure your safety.

Individual Therapy : Individual therapy is a key component of rehab, and you can expect to meet regularly with a therapist to work through the underlying causes of your addiction and develop coping skills.

Group Therapy : Group therapy sessions provide a supportive environment where you can share your experiences with others who are going through similar struggles and receive support and feedback.

Family Therapy : Many rehab programs offer family therapy as a way to involve loved ones in the recovery process and improve communication and relationships.

Education and Skill-Building : You will receive education and skill-building sessions to help you understand addiction and develop healthy coping mechanisms to prevent relapse.

Holistic Therapies : Many rehab programs incorporate holistic therapies such as yoga, meditation, art therapy, or equine therapy to promote relaxation and stress reduction.

Support Groups : Support groups such as 12-step programs or SMART Recovery can provide ongoing support and accountability after you leave rehab.

Aftercare Planning : Before you leave rehab, you will work with your treatment team to develop an aftercare plan to help you maintain sobriety and prevent relapse.

Length of Treatment : The length of your rehab program will depend on your specific needs and may range from a few weeks to several months. It is important to commit to the full length of treatment to ensure the best possible outcomes.
