Santa Monica Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs

Santa Monica is a small city on the water, just west of Los Angeles, California. This area is home to about 92,000 residents.1 Santa Monica’s proximity to the much larger metropolitan area means that several drug problems spill over into the beachside city, including abuse of hallucinogenic drugs, such as LSD.

D-lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, is a synthetic hallucinogen that is derived from a fungus that grows on various grains. The powerful effects of this substance last for as long as 12 hours and can cause hallucinations, delusions, other changes to sensory experiences, and mood swings. The drug can also increase heart rate, body temperature, physical tremors, and high blood pressure, all of which can be dangerous. The changes in how the brain processes reality, combined with a loss of physical coordination, can cause a serious accident.2

In the spring of 2017, a 15-year-old high school student abused LSD and died after falling off an apartment building in Santa Monica.3 According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), 1.3% of 8th graders, 3% of 10th graders, and 5% of 12th graders had ever tried LSD in 2017.4 Abusing drugs at any time is harmful and can lead to problematic patterns of substance abuse and addiction.

It’s important to get help from a detox and rehabilitation program that can adequately meet all of your needs. We can help you find the right treatment center for your situation. Call our helpline today.

Breaking free from Hydrococet, Dextropropoxyphene, alcohol or other addictive drugs you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment schedule. Two options of drug or alcohol abuse treatment clinics in Santa Monica can help you succeed: either Residential or Outpatient Rehab. Inpatient counseling offers long term benefits with longer stays in a high-quality rehab program. Outpatient treatments may be more fitting, but lack the stability and capability of sixty-day programs to get over your substance abuse problem. Ultimately, you are in control of your decision, and we are here to help you make the best choice.

Researching Santa Monica Rehabilitation Services When it comes to drug rehab, Santa Monica offers plenty of options. Each facility may be slightly different, providing different kinds of care or offering to assist different age groups of people, but they all attempt to help their clients learn how to live without abusing drugs or alcohol.

If you're living with an addiction, a Santa Monica drug treatment center might be just the place for you to heal.

Tips on Enrolling Into a Treatment Program

Some people who enroll in Santa Monica drug treatment centers are addicted to multiple substances at the same time.

According to an article published in the L.A. Times, about 11 percent of the population of Santa Monica smokes cigarettes. If you're addicted to any other substance, even if that other substance is nicotine, it's best to disclose that when you're in the enrollment process, so your therapists can come up with a plan to address all of the addiction issues you're facing.

Should I Go Through Detox First?

Some facilities offer detox services, providing you with support while your body adjusts to a lack of access to drugs. Other facilities will require you to go through detox before you arrive. This is a good topic to discuss before you enroll.

Find Recovery Clinics in Santa Monica

There are several avenues you could take to find Santa Monica addiction treatment programs. You could:

  • Ask your insurance company for a recommendation.
  • Talk to your doctor and ask for a referral.
  • Run a search on the Internet.
  • Talk to your friends in recovery about the facilities they used.

Detaching yourself from the setting of the abuse issue can help separate disturbances and temptations that prevent you from staying clean. When viewing rehabilitation as a restorative retreat, addicts will find executive private centers in cities outside of Santa Monica, California. Offering retreat-like features, the top programs help achieve a physical, mental and emotional restoration. However, those looking for outpatient therapy may find a facility nearer to home is a simpler decision.
