ABOUT ACTION DRUG REHABS - PIRU DRUG AND ALCOHOL TREATMENT CENTER
Action Family Counseling (AFC) in Piru, Calif., in Ventura County offers residential treatment for adults struggling with drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Founded in 1997, AFC operates four rehab facilities in Southern California. In addition to the adults-only residential program at the Piru location, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and adolescent programs are available at AFC's other facilities.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Before admission, clients take an initial assessment to evaluate their alcohol and drug use, mental health disorders, and educational needs. Program length lasts between one and three months, depending on individual needs. According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, 33.6 percent of treatment facilities in California offer a residential program that is 30 days or longer.
All treatment programs are individualized and use a combination of individual and family therapy, daily group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, and specialty therapy for trauma. There are also daily addiction education groups, some of which address peer-based problem solving. Identifying behavioral triggers and developing healthy relationships are key goals.
AFC has a staff-to-client ratio of 1:6. According to AFC's website, the staff team is comprised of highly trained experts in the fields of addictive medicine, substance misuse treatment, and mental health. Both of AFC's adult rehab centers are governed by a licensed marriage and family therapist (MFT).
AFC's facilities are among the 182 facilities (13.9 percent) in California that are certified by the Joint Commission.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Residents share rooms with private bathrooms in a two-story 22-bed Colonial Revival home built in a secluded location in 1887. According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, the average number of beds in California residential rehab facilities is 30. Leisure provisions include regular excursions to nearby beaches and Lake Piru.
