Whittier Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs

Whittier, California, is one of the many small cities surrounding the larger Los Angeles area. Both Whittier and Los Angeles County have experienced the negative effects of substance abuse and addiction.

Between 2012 and 2014, an average of 703,000 Los Angeles County residents were struggling with a past-year drug or alcohol addiction.1 Despite this alarming number, less than 33,000 people received substance abuse treatment in 2014. The most popular drugs people sought addiction treatment for were heroin and methamphetamine, respectively.1

Hundreds of thousands of people in Los Angeles County are not receiving the treatment they need to end the cycle of abuse and get clean and sober. There are many barriers to treatment, such as cost, denial, fear of stigma, and lack of resources. That being said, nothing is more important than your health, happiness, and recovery.

There are countless detox and rehab programs available throughout the area and elsewhere that can help you obtain and maintain sobriety. If you’re addicted to alcohol, benzodiazepines, or other sedatives, as well as drugs like heroin or methamphetamine, you may benefit from medical detox services, so that medical professionals can provide you with the treatment and support you need to stay safe during withdrawal. Call our helpline to learn about high-quality rehab options in your area and throughout the country.

Breaking free from Anexsia, Librium, alcohol or other addictive drugs you or your loved one is addicted to takes an specifically-tailored treatment schedule. Two options of substance abuse treatment clinics in Whittier can help you succeed: either In-patient or Outpatient Rehab. Inpatient counseling offers enduring benefits with longer stays in a highly-rated rehab program. Outpatient treatments may be more opportune, 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.

Select Whittier Rehabilitation Centers Founded by Quakers in the 19th Century, Whittier, California is located just a few miles southeast of Los Angeles. Major employers in the Whittier area include two major health care facilities, and there are 10 colleges and universities within a 10-mile radius.

College students and health care workers are particularly at risk for addiction, whether it be to alcohol, narcotics or, as is increasingly the case, prescription drugs. Fortunately, most people find healthier ways to deal with the pressures of life. For those who do not, help is available.Tips on Entering a Treatment Center

Because there are many types of addiction, there are different types of treatment programs available. You'll need to decide what type of program is best for your situation; a primary care physician can often refer you to a suitable treatment center. You may also have to find out what is covered under your current insurance.

You can also call us today and we can put you in touch with an addiction treatment center in Whittier that can help.

The Affordable Care Act and Drug/Alcohol Rehab

Private insurers have been inconsistent in the past over what they will and won't pay for when it comes to treatment for addiction. However, under the Affordable Care Act, all insurers will be required to "include treatment for mental health and substance use disorder services" as part of their policies' benefits. This part of the law will be fully implemented by 2014.

Finding Rehabilitation Services in Whittier

If you or someone in your family is struggling with addiction, it is important to find help as soon as possible. If you need guidance in locating rehabilitation services in Whittier, please call today to speak with one of our counselors.

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 Whittier, California. Offering retreat-like features, the best 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.
