More than 15 percent of the population above the age of 12 is using illegal drugs.
Approximately 892,000 thousand individuals are suffering from drug addiction. There has been an 82 percent increase in substance use disorders beginning with the turn of the century. The substances most frequently misused in Anaheim are prescription and synthetic opioids, marijuana, cocaine and alcohol. For every 100,000 deaths in the city, 8.4 are the result of an opioid overdose.
Hospitalization, visits to the emergency room and overdoses related to opioids have been steadily increasing in Anaheim since 2012. Emergency room visits due to opioids have increased 50 percent since 2005, with opioid deaths quadrupling since 1999. Individuals between 45 and 54 years of age are at the highest risk for an opioid overdose.
Anaheim offers you a large variety of options for drug rehab including some of the highest-rated rehab centers in the world. Residential, inpatient and outpatient programs are available to help you recover from drug usage. During outpatient treatment, you can enjoy numerous attractions including the Disneyland Resort, shopping and restaurants.
If you are a sports fan, this city is home to several pro sports teams. The Anaheim Ducks play hockey at the Honda Center and you can find the Los Angeles Angels playing baseball at Angel Stadium. Most importantly, you are certain to receive the help you need to conquer your addiction.
When you arrive at the treatment facility, your first stop is admissions. You should bring a list of your past and present medical conditions, your insurance policy and a current list of health providers. You will be asked questions regarding your drug or alcohol use, medical and mental health conditions, support system and living arrangements.
You will most likely talk to an admissions coordinator, nurse and therapist before receiving a psychological and medical evaluation. Your input is important for the development of your treatment plan. The staff will explain the expectations and rules, make certain you do not have any drugs or paraphernalia or banned objects. Your phone may be confiscated.
Your first phase at Asana Recovery is detox. You will be in a safe environment when drugs and alcohol are eliminated from your system. You may need to slowly taper off the substance or be given medication to help with your symptoms. You should start to feel better after the first three to five days. If your substance abuse issue is mild, you may be able to detox at your home.
You will visit the facility every day and talk to a therapist or physician. If you are suffering from opioid use, you may need to take buprenorphine or methadone. The majority of patients require either residential or inpatient detox for recovery. You will be monitored 24/7 and any withdrawal symptoms or complications will be handled by medical professionals.
After detox, you will most likely begin inpatient therapy. The intensity of your treatment will depend on your specific addiction and how long you have been addicted. You will participate in weekly therapy sessions, supplemental or group therapy and educational classes. Supplemental therapy generally includes exercise, art therapy or meditation.
You will remain in residential therapy for a few weeks to a few months. You will work with your treatment team to create a plan for aftercare. As your treatment progresses, you will spend fewer hours in treatment each day.
This may include staying in a sober home while attending the rehab facility for therapy on a daily basis. You may or may not be sleeping at your treatment center. The main difference between partial hospitalization and residential therapy is less programming is required.
Once you have been released from partial hospitalization, you will begin outpatient therapy. This is also referred to as intensive outpatient therapy. You might attend on-on-one, group or multiple individual therapy sessions every week. Your living environment and support system are the determining factors as to whether you will be living at home or in a sober living home.
The majority of individuals attend self-help, 12-step or group meetings every day after completing therapy. If your treatment began with inpatient detoxification and therapy, there is a good chance you will start outpatient therapy in approximately 30 days. If outpatient detox was your first step, you will most likely begin outpatient therapy a few days later.
There is no set period of time for outpatient therapy. Once you have remained sober for several months or years, you may no longer need outpatient therapy. You may also find you need to speak with a therapist or counselor every month for an unlimited period of time to remain sober. You will determine the actions you need to take to prevent a relapse.
