Alo House Los Angeles Drug Treatment and Rehab Center
At Alo House Recovery Centers, we take pride in our award-winning Malibu treatment center that was founded on a compassionate care model.
We realize that southern California is a big place, and Malibu might not be geographically accommodating for everyone that needs helps recovering from addiction, so we have additional treatment centers in other areas too.
The Alo House Los Angeles Drug Rehab Treatment Center provides a convenient location for people who live close to downtown Los Angeles and the surrounding areas of Hollywood, Glendale, Pasadena, East Los Angeles, and other nearby locations.
When searching for drug or alcohol addiction treatment services near Los Angeles, it’s important to find treatment services that offer a holistic approach with a wide range of services, instead of simply a set of group meetings to attend.
It’s essential to match the specific needs of each person with the levels of care that offer the best chance of success in recovery.
Alo House Los Angeles Drug Rehab Levels of Care
While there are many options available today, our Alo House Los Angeles rehab center provides the following addiction treatment levels of care:
- Residential Treatment
- Partial Hospitalization / Partial Residential Treatment
- Intensive Outpatient Treatment
- Outpatient Treatment
- Aftercare Treatment
One of our certified substance use professionals performs a substance use evaluation on every new client to determine which of level of care is most appropriate for their unique circumstances.
Our Compassionate Care model is designed to help each individual heal from his or her substance use disorder in a safe and comfortable environment that promotes healthy recovery.
In addition to our levels of care, our programs are specifically designed for young adults to get their lives back on track through sobriety. A few of our programs include:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Substance use counseling
- Vocational skills counseling
- Case management
Holistic Addiction Treatment
The goal of Holistic addiction treatment is to treat the entire person, instead of just treating the addiction. Because no two people are alike, and each person has their own distinct stories and issues related to their substance issues, it only makes sense that each one has an individualized treatment plan.
Because of this, we utilize many different treatment modalities that vary from person to person. Some of these modalities include CBT, Mindfulness Based Therapy, DBT, Art Therapy, and Experiential Therapy.
In Holistic Based Treatment, some of the methods used include such components as:
- Therapy to heal the mind
- Physical activities that make the body stronger
- Healthy eating to heal the body and mind
- Dual diagnosis treatment that focuses on underlying emotional and mental health issues, which often contribute to addictive behavior
- Meditation to relax and provide stress relief without medication
Alternative Treatment Center
For the most part, we are a non-12 step treatment center, but we realize that 12 step programs have been a valuable way to help many people get clean from alcohol and drugs. We offer 12-step meetings, in addition to alternatives to 12 step meetings. We also provide a range of healing and recovery related activities for all of our clients.
Because 12 step meetings are free to attend, we make it a point to not charge clients only to take them to meetings. Therefore, we offer a diverse mixture of evidence-based clinical, and therapeutic modalities.
With so many paths to sustainable recovery, we encourage our clients to choose the best path for them along with support from our certified and licensed staff of substance use professionals.
What are the Benefits of Alternative Treatment Programs?
- Alternative treatment programs empower individuals to take charge of their lives and behaviors
- They enlighten each person about what they have to give back to the world, instead of forcing them to do something that hasn’t worked for them in the past
- They teach that any addict can become a non-addict by living drug and alcohol- free
- They show that nothing can hold an individual back from recovery, and having a good life if they choose to do so
Los Angeles Residential Drug Treatment
Some people from Los Angeles or nearby areas may choose to stay at the treatment facility for 30-days or more during treatment. This is sometimes called in-patient treatment and includes the residential treatment levels of care.
This is a higher level of care for people who are currently using drugs or alcohol and require an extensive period of time to quit substances while being supervised by a qualified team of experts.
Sometimes, detox is required before beginning residential treatment. Drug and alcohol detox is a short period of time where a person stops using their substance of choice and the body rids itself of the associated toxins. It’s important that detox takes place under the supervision of trained professionals.
After detox has been safely completed, people begin group and individual therapy sessions in a safe environment to uncover the underlying issues of their addiction and attend to their recovery.
Outpatient Addiction Treatment in Los Angeles
Many times people choose to enter outpatient treatment without staying at the treatment facility full-time during recovery. This is ideal for people in Los Angeles who live near our facility and will benefit from all the elements of our program without leaving the comfort of their own home.
This option is best suited for young adults who work or go to school on a daily basis. They can continue their normal life and routine while receiving treatment at the same time.
The outpatient treatment level of care would be recommended after a thorough substance use evaluation by a certified professional and it is considered to be a safe and appropriate level of care for the client.
The Alo House Los Angeles outpatient treatment center provides recovery programs that are designed to meet each individual’s needs.
Our licensed and certified staff and team of clinicians are trained to advance your growth during recovery. Alo House is a leading Los Angeles outpatient treatment center that focuses on individual client care and provides customized plans to minimize the risk of relapse and promote long-term sobriety. Personalized treatment plans are created to support sustainable recovery and often include many of the following modalities:
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Somatic Experiencing
- Family Behavioral Therapy
Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Los Angeles
Dual Diagnosis, sometimes referred to as a co-occurring disorder, is a substance use disorder (addiction) combined with a mental health issue (depression, anxiety, ADHD). This tends to complicate recovery because both issues, addiction and mental health, must be treated at the same time for recovery to be successful.
People who undergo an integrated dual diagnosis treatment tend to remain sober more successfully than those who don’t get this type of treatment. This is due in part because the mental health and substance use disorders were treated simultaneously.
Because each person has unique reasons for the cause of their issues, it is usually unknown which came first, the mental health issue or the addiction, and it will be different for everyone. But during dual diagnosis treatment, hopefully the root cause will be revealed which will make long-lasting recovery more attainable.
Aftercare support is an important aspect of recovery and relapse prevention. Studies show that the longer a person stays in treatment, the more successful they will be in their recovery. The optimal treatment stay has always been 90 days or longer, but for a variety of reasons, that isn’t always possible.
An aftercare program that supports the person in recovery for a longer period of time greatly adds to the success of their treatment episode. Fortunately, we offer an individualized aftercare program for our clients.
Our comprehensive program offers a variety of types of counseling and therapies to assist in building self-esteem, staying off drugs or alcohol, and living a joyful life in recovery. Our clients choose what works best for them and their daily routine, and we’ve found some of the best ones include meditation, yoga, acupuncture and equine therapy, as well as many other alternative methods.
Other aspects of aftercare support include group and individual counseling, educational and vocational counseling for help with school or finding a job, and assistance with locating housing.
Sober Living Options in Los Angeles
A major component of our aftercare program includes sober living assistance. People leaving treatment and new to recovery can take advantage of many sober living benefits that include:
- Educational assistance
- Continued counseling
- Emotional support
- Mental health therapy
- Wellness and assistance learning to live a healthy lifestyle
- Individually designed aftercare program
Treatment is an important step in recovery, but it is only a step. People leaving treatment require the support of others in recovery as well as counselors who can help guide them as they embark on a new life of sobriety. Aftercare programs and sober living options are crucial pieces that can make recovery successful.
Because it’s important to have all of the resources available nearby, we created the Alo House Los Angeles Drug Treatment and Rehab Center to help those in need in this important area of southern California.
