Ohana Recovery Center is a full-service drug & alcohol addiction treatment center that offers personalized care for each person who chooses to recover at our facilities. After an addict admits that they have a problem, the next step is to evaluate the individual person and start the detoxification process.
Detoxification is when a person stops taking the substance that they’ve been addicted to so we can rid the body of the toxins that have been building up over time. Undergoing a drug or alcohol detox is the essential first step to recovery. Once a person stops taking the substance they’ve been addicted to, the body starts its battle with recovery. The process of detoxification is when the body rids itself of the toxins that have been causing detrimental problems to a person’s body and brain. Medical detoxification requires full-time supervision by medical professionals.
Medical supervision will help to manage a person’s medical and emotional needs throughout the detox process. Not only is the body ridding itself of built-up toxins, but a person is also going to experience varying levels of withdrawal symptoms that range from unpleasant to potentially life-threatening, and this requires 24-hour medical attention. Some examples of withdrawal symptoms include shaking, sweating, tremors, disorientation, anxiety, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and seizures. Without supervision, a person may try to manage these symptoms on their own and just end up relapsing to rid themselves of the pain. With supervision, medical experts can help to mitigate the withdrawal symptoms by providing medication or other forms of care. At Ohana Recovery Center, our staff wants each client to feel that they are completely taken care of, 24/7.
After the detox process, clients will enter the portion of rehabilitation that includes therapy and various treatment programs that we personalize for each person based on their individual needs. Some therapies that we offer at our drug and alcohol treatment center in Malibu include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), group therapy, individual therapy, and mindfulness techniques such as meditation, yoga, exercise, and various other calming activities. Undergoing therapy to treat addiction is important because it allows a person to focus on their addictive behaviors and overcome some of the bad habits that they’ve developed over time. Each person’s experience with addiction is different, therefore each person will have different needs when it comes to treating their addiction. Some people respond best to individual therapies, where we break down past behaviors and circumstances and understand the root of the addiction, whereas other people respond best to group therapies or 12-step programs that allow for them to relate to other people’s circumstances to better understand their own addiction.
