Sovereign Health of California - Portola Avenue Focus:

Opiate Addiction

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.

Alcoholism

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

The term dual diagnosis has been changed to co-occurring disorders, since often an individual may have multiple substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. Individuals with bipolar disorder may have an underlying substance abuse disorder that is undiagnosed and causing an increase in bipolar disorder symptoms. On the other hand, it is possible for an individual to have a substance use disorder that is masking a mental health disorder. Therefore, it is important for each disorder to be diagnosed and treated, so that the individual will heal appropriately. Treatment is aimed at a multidisciplinary approach including medication assisted detox for a substance use disorder as well as psychotherapy approaches for the mental health disorder. A patient must detox from the addicted substance before the mental health disorder can be addressed, making this a very complex treatment process. Once the drug of abuse is cleared from the body, a proper assessment can be made to determine the severity of the mental health disorder. Depending on the severity, treatment can entail residential treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient care or general outpatient treatment.

Depending on the severity, treatment can entail residential treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient care or general outpatient treatment.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

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.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Aftercare Support

Throughout the treatment process, patients and their care team at Sovereign Health learn in detail what it will take to keep each unique patient in recovery. Using this knowledge, an individualized aftercare plan and relapse prevention plan are constructed. These plans include a daily schedule that will make the person as mentally and physically strong as possible to increase resilience against temptation. They also include potential triggers to avoid and ways to cope with people, places, things and circumstances that increase vulnerability to relapse. All follow-up appointments with psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists listed along with any relevant referrals and adjunct appointments. Continuing care and emergency contact numbers are also included.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

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.

Individual Therapy

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.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

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

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.

Nutrition Therapy

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.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.

Sovereign Health of California - Portola Avenue Highlights:

Standing above other Palm Springs treatment centers, Sovereign Health’s Palm Desert location provides evidence-based, effective treatment for mental health and substance use disorders. The staff of dedicated clinicians used the latest modalities to give patients the best chance at a lasting recovery.
Men and women are housed separately and sleep two or three to a room. Crisis intervention is available at the houses 24/7. Limited TV and game time are available at the houses. Patients enjoy three professionally prepared meals a day and are able to make specific dietary requests. All houses have laundry facilities, and patients are given responsibility for the upkeep of their living areas by participating in daily chores.
Sovereign Health Group's mission is to help people gain control over their health and the various illnesses that may threaten it. Whether it is a mental disorder or a substance addiction, serious behavioral health problems such as these can manipulate one’s thoughts and cripple his or her actions.
Sovereign’s approach combines the best of both worlds, incorporating a wide range of resources while still honing in on particular areas of concern. First of all, we view each patient with a holistic lens that identifies all of his or her specific needs. Once these needs are acknowledged, our multidisciplinary approach allows us to focus on creating treatment plans that provide patients with a full spectrum of behavioral health services that work for them respectively. Also, all of our programs incorporate educational elements to strengthen cognition and equip patients with the tools necessary to survive in day-to-day life after treatment.
At Sovereign Health, all patients going through detoxification are medically monitored around the clock. Our NAD program provides luxury accommodations in a scenic and confidential setting in San Clemente, California. A physician and his or her assistant conduct assessments and prescribe appropriate treatment formulations. The medically supervised NAD therapy program consists of both intravenous and oral NAD supplements administered by a registered nurse who also monitors the patients throughout the process.
One may have entered treatment for addiction, only to relapse time and time again, unaware of the truth: There’s an underlying mental illness or disorder pushing the individual to fuel the addiction. From a variety of illnesses including depression or anxiety, an individual will sometimes drink, eat, smoke or inhale attempting to deal with the internal issues. Individuals who continue to seek treatment for only one of these co-occurring conditions can feel trapped in an endless cycle. However, hope can be found with dual diagnosis treatment programs.
