California Highlands Addiction Treatment Center aims to succeed in treating those suffering from addiction by using proven and up-to-date methods.

Their credentialed professionals are ready to handle any medical and behavioral challenges that may arise due to an individual's addiction.
California Highlands Addiction Treatment Center Focus:
Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.
The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.
Mental Health and Substance Abuse
A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
Addictive behaviors tend to go hand in hand with mental health illness, which means that too often substance abusers are choosing to self-medicate with alcohol and/or drugs as a coping method. By attempting to dull their mental illness symptoms with substances, they provide an easy gateway into a vicious cycle of addiction that not only develops a physical dependence but a mental dependence as well. Dual-diagnosis drug treatment centers understand that for individuals with mental illnesses and drug/alcohol addiction, the recovery process must address both issues simultaneously. By tackling both mental illness and physical addiction, recovering individuals will notice a drastic improvement in their understanding of their addiction and how it pertains to their mental health.
Methadone maintenance is used to help individuals addicted to opioids who have tried and failed in conventional treatment programs. Methadone is a synthetic, habit-forming drug that is used as an alternative to opioids over an extended period of time. By using methadone, the physical cravings and side effects of withdrawal are massively decreased. This allows the individual to focus on their addiction treatment and therapy with a clear mind and without the worry of the medical complications attributed to the withdrawal symptoms.
Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment
Buprenorphine is a prescription medication used in detoxification as an opioid-replacement for heroin and prescription painkiller addictions. Approved by the Food Drug Administration in 2002, it was utilized as a tool for medically-assisted treatment (MAT) and is now used in combination with behavioral therapies to provide clients help with their opioid addictions and relapse prevention. Although normally taken orally, buprenorphine can also be taken intravenously or via a transdermal patch. Its most popular form is through Suboxone tablets, a controlled substance that contains buprenorphine along with the opioid adversary naloxone, which is used as an alternative to methadone in opioid replacement therapies.
What does California Highlands Addiction Treatment Center offer?
Medically Assisted Detox
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.
24 Hour Clinical Care
At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.
Outpatient drug treatment centers allow clients to live at home while going through rehab. These programs are typically more convenient and cheaper for clients who cannot leave their homes or jobs for an extended time. Outpatient treatment also serves as transitional support for clients who have entered inpatient treatment for more severe addictions.
Residential (inpatient) Treatment
Battling an addiction is often difficult, especially as temptations arise daily. Prior triggers can lead many back into the arms of drug and alcohol addiction, causing a relapse. An inpatient treatment program helps ensure the person receiving treatment maintains a healthy distance from the outside world, so they can begin recovery. Research shows that clients who enter and complete an inpatient treatment program significantly shrink their odds of having a relapse.
Inpatient treatment programs were originally created using the medical inpatient treatment model. Once it was proven the approach works, drug and alcohol treatment centers in the United States began to use it and found success.
Intervention Services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict’s behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.
Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.
Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.
Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.
In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.
Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.
Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.
Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.
