No matter what the drug of choice may be — prescription opiates, benzodiazepines, heroin, cocaine or a combination of multiple drugs — the 35-day inpatient drug rehab program at Beach House is tailored to the needs of each individual client. Whether you are struggling with Xanax or methadone abuse, you will find compassionate and experienced people here to help.
Residential Drug Treatment
Residential drug treatment at Beach House distinguishes itself by the following key features:
- An outcomes-based approach and individualized plans of care
- Evidence-based practices that treat the whole person (body, mind and spirit)
- Highly trained and certified clinical staff
Commonly Treated Drug Addictions
Clients emerging from detox can find treatment at our inpatient rehab center for addiction to any drug or combination of drugs. Often we find that a great number of clients seeking our help have an addiction to one or more drugs in the following broad categories (although this list is not meant to be exhaustive):
- Benzodiazepines (benzos) — These tranquilizing drugs, such as Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, and Ativan, often are initially prescribed by a doctor for a sleep or anxiety condition, only to become a source of both physical and psychological dependency.
- Marijuana — This increasingly popular drug among teens and young people can become addictive for anywhere between 9 and 17 percent of users, thus demanding professional treatment.
- Opiates — These frequently prescribed drugs, like codeine, oxycodone, and morphine (to name only a few) may initially help to relieve pain for a particular medical condition. Their regular use can quickly turn into a full-blown substance use disorder, however, and even lead to heroin addictions.
- Stimulants (“uppers”)— These drugs range from doctor-prescribed medicines like Adderall and Vyvanse to street drugs like cocaine and crystal meth.
An Outcomes-Based Approach and Individualized Plans of Care
At Beach House we are intentional about working with our clients to create an individualized plan of care that meets their unique recovery objectives, with a view to meeting those outcomes in treatment. This plan of care looks different for every client: it will depend, for example, on the specific drug(s) from which a client has sought detox and the various psychological issues and triggers associated with that dependency. If, for instance, a client used cocaine to medicate an underlying condition like clinical depression, we will work with them to develop an integrated plan of care that addresses not just the cocaine abuse but also the depression that triggered it. That client might be prescribed a medication like an antidepressant. They might be challenged to undertake group or individual therapies that equip them with various cognitive and behavioral coping skills for dealing with their depression (as a trigger of their cocaine use).
Residential Drug Treatment Offerings — Only Evidence-Based Practices
At Beach House, we employ only those treatment methods that qualify as “best practices” on the basis of repeated clinical trials proving their effectiveness for treating drug addiction. These evidence-based practices include the following:
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy found in recent research to successfully reduce the stress, anxiety and depression often at play with a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related distress. Many clients seeking freedom from addiction have experienced some sort of trauma or traumatic event. Our highly trained therapists use EMDR to disrupt and disable the trauma-related memories that feed addiction, in essence, retraining and rewiring the brain so that it’s more resilient to this common trigger of addiction (past trauma).
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is another form of psychotherapy that, based on ongoing research into its comparative effectiveness next to other interventions, qualifies as a “best practice” in treating addiction. Our CBT-certified therapists work with clients to change the particular cognitive and behavioral patterns that feed their drug abuse — and to replace them with healthier coping skills, in the way of alternative forms of thinking, relating and acting.
- Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered form of substance abuse counseling that seeks to facilitate positive change and a desire for change on the part of the client. Through motivational interviewing, our experienced therapists help gently steer clients towards freedom from addiction by encouraging greater self-awareness and a self-directed willingness to grow.
- Medication-Assisted Treatment can be very effective during inpatient drug rehab and after, depending on the person and the nature of their addiction. After a comprehensive assessment by our on-site, addictions-certified psychiatrist, clients may receive medication assistance for their particular chemical dependency and medical needs, and for any co-occurring diagnoses such as anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
- Mindfulness Meditation has become an important component in drug addiction recovery programs across the nation – and rightly so: multiple studies through the years have shown its effectiveness in treating substance use disorders. With the guidance of our seasoned clinicians, clients at Beach House thus learn helpful techniques for practicing greater, non-judgmental attentiveness to their inner and outer worlds. Clients can take these tools with them when they leave, with the result that they become more resilient to relapse.
- Yoga, as another evidence-based practice promoting mindfulness and relaxation, yields great benefits for Beach House Clients. Certified yoga instructors lead clients through exercises that increase bodily awareness and holistic well-being (as the healthy integration of mind, body and spirit).
- Peer Support and Life Skills Groups feature prominently in our daily, residential treatment program. Studies show that participation in 12-Step recovery groups like Narcotics Anonymous significantly reduces the likelihood of relapse during the first critical year post-rehab. At Beach House, we offer 12-Step and other peer support options to our clients. Within the safety of these peer support groups, our clients learn crucial life skills pertaining to anger management, grief and loss and cravings and relapse prevention.
- Family Therapy is a critical therapeutic dimension to finding freedom from addiction. Our family therapists invite clients’ closest support system into their healing and recovery process, with the understanding that this support network will be an essential safety net post-rehab, one that’s found to be instrumental in preventing relapse.
