Alcohol & Drug Rehab FAQ

South Coast’s alcohol and drug rehab FAQ provides answers to common questions people ask about addiction treatment programs, services, and resources. We will also offer insights into what to expect in rehab at our rehab facilities in Orange County, California.

Our rehab facilities have licensed medical professionals on staff who can provide necessary medical care during your time in our program. We also work closely with outside healthcare providers if additional services are needed.

Yes, South Coast Behavioral Health has a team of experienced doctors on staff. Our medical professionals are highly trained in diagnosing and treating substance use and mental health disorders. 

During treatment, our doctors regularly consult with nurses, therapists, counselors, and support staff to discuss client progress and develop personalized treatment plans. This collaborative approach ensures that every person receives the best possible care for their individual needs.

Our team at South Coast Behavioral Health focuses on creating personalized treatment plans for each individual. We recognize that every person’s journey towards sobriety is unique, and we tailor our approach to fit your specific needs.

No, you do not need to be a California resident to receive treatment at South Coast. Our facility is open to individuals from all states and we welcome clients from out of state seeking quality care for substance abuse and mental health disorders. We understand that finding the right treatment center can be overwhelming, so we strive to make the process as easy and accommodating as possible for our clients.

Many of our clients here at South Coast come from another state. If you or a loved one is thinking about traveling for treatment, South Coast’s team can assist in planning your trip to California and make you feel at home once you arrive at our Orange County rehab. With your approval, we will take care of everything in preparation for your stay with us, including your flight to and from our facilities.

During detox and residential treatment, clients share their accommodations with another individual. With that being said, our facilities are designed with generous space, ensuring each person’s comfort, privacy, discretion, and safety. For further details, please reach out to our team in admissions.

Our rehab centers in Orange County offer modern amenities and comfortable living spaces where you can rest, reflect, and heal. We believe that a peaceful and serene environment is crucial for the recovery process, and we strive to provide just that.

Our inpatient rehab facilities are located in Irvine, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach. With only six clients in each house, you can recover in a safe, close-knit community of your peers.

Following detox and residential, clients can receive ongoing care in partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment at our Newport Beach recovery center.  All of our facilities are designed to create a comfortable and secure space for individuals seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.

The term “luxury treatment” refers to a form of addiction treatment that includes high-end rehab facilities and amenities. However, it does not inherently indicate superior clinical care quality.

We recommend bringing comfortable clothing and shoes for various activities and therapy sessions. You may also want to pack personal toiletries, any necessary medications (in the original packaging), insurance information, and identification. We also encourage you to bring any items that may aid in your recovery journey, such as journals or books. Our admissions team will provide you with a full list of items to bring and what not to bring when you schedule your intake appointment.

The policy on bringing cell phones to rehab varies from facility to facility. At our center, we understand the significance of staying connected with your loved ones during your recovery journey. However, to ensure that all clients have the most conducive environment for healing and personal growth, we implement a structured phone use policy. During the initial phase of treatment, clients are encouraged to focus entirely on their recovery process without the distractions that come with constant connectivity. Therefore, cell phone access is restricted during our inpatient programs.

As you progress through treatment and reach certain milestones in your recovery, you will regain privileges including cell phone use. This is to ensure that clients have the necessary tools and skills to maintain a healthy balance between staying connected and prioritizing their recovery.

If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse, you might qualify for FMLA leave for rehab treatment. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) lets eligible employees take job-protected leave for specific family and medical reasons, offering a chance to recover without risking their job.

Our Orange County rehab programs are designed to treat a variety of substance use disorders that involve prescription medications, recreational drugs, and illicit substances. This includes (but is not limited to) alcohol, opioids, stimulants, and benzodiazepines.

South Coast Behavioral Health’s inpatient rehab facilities do not allow pets. This decision was made with the safety and well-being of our clients in mind. While we understand that pets can provide comfort and emotional support, our top priority is to maintain a controlled healing environment throughout the treatment process. Our medical staff is trained to provide the necessary care and support needed during this time, so you can focus on your recovery.

We understand that having a supportive partner can greatly aid in the recovery process. However, couples participating in the same rehab program may inadvertently distract each other from their personal paths to recovery.

To provide the best possible care for each client and limit distractions, we offer gender-specific inpatient programs for men and women. Following inpatient treatment, we encourage loved ones to participate in couples therapy to promote healthy communication and establish boundaries in early recovery.

Family involvement is crucial in the recovery process, which is why we offer family integration services during our partial hospitalization program and intensive outpatient program. These programs allow for more flexibility and support, as well as the opportunity for loved ones to actively participate in the client’s treatment journey.

As clients transition through PHP and IOP, they are welcome to invite family members to attend therapy sessions. Family therapy allows for open communication, healing of relationships, and a better understanding of the client’s struggles.

Yes, we offer transportation services to and from our facility for clients who are unable to arrange their own transportation. Our team will work with you to coordinate your transportation needs during your stay with us.

Yes, we do offer detox services at South Coast Rehab. We believe that a safe and thorough detox process is an important first step in the recovery journey. Our team of medical professionals will closely monitor your withdrawal symptoms and provide necessary support to ensure your safety and comfort.

Depending on the severity of your addiction and the type of substance used, detox may be necessary before beginning our residential treatment program.

While the length of treatment may vary for each individual, we recommend completing the entirety of our substance abuse programs. This allows for ample time to address underlying issues, develop coping mechanisms, and establish a strong foundation for long-term recovery.

Treatment length by level of care:

Detox programs last for about 3-7 days, but may be longer depending on the severity of the addiction and the type of substance being used. After detox, clients typically continue treatment in our residential program.

In general, our residential treatment programs last between 30 to 90 days, with the option for extended care if needed. During this time, clients can expect to participate in therapy and counseling sessions regularly, as well as attend support group meetings.

Following detox and residential treatment, clients can transition into our partial hospitalization program (PHP). During PHP, clients participate in treatment sessions for 6 to 8 hours per day, 7 days a week. Partial hospitalization typically extends over the course of several weeks to help clients maintain their recovery and learn coping skills as they begin to reintegrate into society.

After PHP, clients can then enter our intensive outpatient program (IOP), where they will meet for three hours a day, three days a week. Also lasting several weeks, IOP is designed for those who need additional support while transitioning back into their daily lives. Both PHP and IOP allow clients to continue living at home while participating in routine therapy and counseling sessions. However, IOP provides more flexibility for those who may have work or school commitments during the day.

Yes, we offer  medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as an option for certain individuals who may benefit from it. MAT involves the use of FDA-approved medications to lessen symptoms associated with withdrawal, making it easier for individuals to focus on their recovery. These medications may include methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone, and are provided in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. To ensure our client’s safety and success, our clinicians tailor each individual’s treatment plan to meet their specific needs and goals in recovery.

Yes, our clinicians are trained to provide dual diagnosis treatment, which involves treating both the addiction and any underlying mental health issues. In doing so, our rehab programs address and treat any mental health concerns that may be contributing to substance abuse. 

We offer a variety of evidence-based therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and EMDR therapy. For a full list of our therapeutic offerings please visit our therapies page.

Yes, we provide comprehensive aftercare planning for all clients prior to their discharge from our program. Some of our aftercare services include referrals to support groups, continued therapy, and other resources to help you maintain your sobriety and mental wellness.

Yes, South Coast Behavioral Health is in-network with Aetna, Anthem, and Cigna. We also accept most major insurance plans. Our admissions team will work with you and your insurance provider to determine coverage and payment options. We also offer self-pay options for those without insurance.
