Everyone comes to sobriety in her own way. Researchers agree patients need a defined separation from the past – such as available at The Canyon – to build skills and learn to avoid temptations. It’s also crucial for a patient to become an integral part of her treatment plan, which better prepares her to live a sober lifestyle.
A serene setting, such as the facilities on The Canyon’s estate in California’s Santa Monica Mountains, offers time away from an unhealthy lifestyle with the added benefit of beauty and peace. The Canyon provides both inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment, all within a short drive to Beverly Hills. Treatment facilities at The Canyon also offer the type of evidence-based care that gives patients the best chance at long-term sobriety and improved mental health symptoms.
Staff members at The Canyon provide many specific choices to enhance treatment, including an organic menu, gentle exercise, bodywork and meditation. The core of The Canyon’s therapies is an integrated treatment plan,which addresses a patient’s addiction symptoms along with any mental health symptoms, such as anxiety or depression. The ability to treat a patient’s co-occurring conditions is the gold standard in addiction care.
How to Get Into Effective Treatment
Admissions coordinators at the facility guide callers through their individual treatment needs. Options are available for patients who need drug or alcohol detox as well as those who need further stages of addiction treatment. Patients who recently completed inpatient or outpatient treatment may take advantage of The Canyon’s aftercare services as a step between active care and returning home. All calls are confidential and free.
Who Needs the Best Treatment?
Addiction treatment needs vary for each person. Sober living options are ideal for patients with severe addictions—long-term addictions lasting for years or addictions to multiple substances, such as alcohol and opioids. Patients also need different levels of support after entering treatment. For people who experience relapse or have little support from family and friends, a sober network of friends is crucial for maintaining sobriety.
There are a number of different scenarios in which sober living is the best option going forward in recovery. Though some may be prepared to return home after a short, month long stay in treatment and others never leave home at all, opting instead for outpatient services, there are others who need more intensive care. For patients who live in difficult circumstances and are addicted to multiple substances, more intensive and longer-term care is needed to offer greater support and skills training.
What to Expect
Each patient who comes to stay at The Canyon has a slightly different experience because each program is personalized to suit individual needs. This is especially true in the sober living area where each patient is at a different stage in her recovery. In sober living, daily schedules, restrictions and expectations vary. As a patient’s needs change during her stay, which is a normal and expected part of the treatment process, the plan is amended to reflect progress.
It is the goal of The Canyon to identify and treat all aspects of a patient’s addiction and emotional needs as well as offer guidance for spiritual growth. With the help of highly trained staff members, including substance abuse treatment specialists, a licensed psychiatrist, internist and addiction specialist among others, patients recover in a way that allows them to live fulfilling lives.
