    1. Five Reasons Why California Is the Ideal Setting for Drug and Alcohol Treatment California is home to stretching beaches, rolling hills, and diverse wildlife. Many options for treatment exist in the state—ranging from drug and alcohol treatment centers to a healthy lifestyle supported by exploration, action, and friends. Elevate Addiction Services is situated in Silicon Valley, serving Oakland, San Francisco, and Central Coast. We love our residents, and we want to help them explore the many effective treatment options available to them. Below, we’re covering the top five reasons why California is the ideal setting for drug and alcohol treatment.

    2. Reason One: California’s Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers are Effective • Many drug and alcohol treatment centers in California work to combat drug addiction. In California, drug abuse is the number-one premature killer among other risks, just above car accidents. For this reason, the state’s leading providers have doubled down on the creation of drug and alcohol rehab centers. • The OCHCA and NIDA have assisted many residential and outpatient programs, helping those struggling with addiction find recovery. Currently, both entities are focusing on long-term treatment plans which address multiple issues of addiction—promoting the use of more outpatient programs.

    3. Reason Two: California’s Opioid Death Rate is One of America’s Lowest • California has experienced waves of drug abuse spikes in the past. This said, an individual seeking recovery isn’t necessarily put at a direct risk in seeking recovery in California. • California drug and alcohol treatment centers tend to be very specialized. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heroin use rose by 63 percent between 2002 and 2013. Heroin-related overdose deaths, meanwhile, nearly quadrupled in the same period.

    4. Reason Three: California Has Strongly Focused on Mental Health Assistance • In Orange County, depression is the top-responsible cause of hospitalization in those suffering from mental health issues. Often, detox programs help patients understand the impacts mental health has on addiction. Whether you’re pursuing inpatient or outpatient treatment, a surrounding support system of in-depth, comprehensive mental health assistance can make all of the difference. • In most cases, suffering individuals need treatment which targets any mental illnesses as well as their addiction. Otherwise, these individuals will be more likely to fall out of treatment. Or, worse, they may relapse. Many detox treatment centers offer dual-diagnosis recovery programs for this reason. • The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that chronic drug use can result in both short-term and long-term changes in brain chemistry. The state’s approach to new, affordable mental health services is also beneficial to those in recovery. Nearly half of adults—and two-thirds of adolescents—who have mental health needs don’t get treatment.

    5. Reason Four: California Has Many Alcohol Recovery Resources • It isn’t hard to find an alcohol detox center as a result of these changes. In 2009, 23,284 people sought California alcohol rehabilitation, either for alcohol detox medication or for a full-length detox program. Since then, California residents have benefited from enhanced alcohol recovery programs. • Fortunately, alcohol detox medication is quite safe. By watching over patients undergoing detox, alcohol rehab providers help them avoid an array of withdrawal symptoms, including: • Restlessness • Irritated mood • Fever • Depression • Pronounced anxiety • Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance for those in recovery. For this reason, many alcohol recovery program providers are constantly available during outpatient procedures.

    6. Reason Five: California Offers Exploration • Because outpatient recovery is more suitable for some, it’s important to understand why California is a phenomenal destination for outpatient assistance. • Adventure therapy, or experience-based therapy, helps recovering individuals create experiences, build confidence and foster a new excitement for life. This method of therapy, based on real-life experiences, removes patients from small rooms and puts them into the world. Adventure therapy has a few other names, including: • Wilderness therapy • Adventure-based therapy • Outdoor therapy • Experiential therapy
