The Real Impact of Rehab Centers in Los Angeles
  • Some of the rehab centers in Los Angeles have
    been around for quite some time, with new ones
    opening because of a significant need for rehab
    services. Due to the high rate of drug addiction
    throughout Los Angeles and all of California,
    which echoes what is happening throughout the
    country, it is important to have programs in
    place that address the drug epidemic in the most
    effective ways possible. Fortunately, these
    programs exist, and people are turning to them
    for help.

Addiction Can Be Managed
  • By approaching addiction as a disease, it is
    possible to manage it successfully. There are
    different rehab centers in Los Angeles that use
    multiple strategies based on a persons specific
    addiction and other personal factors. However,
    addiction has disruptive effects on behavior and
    the brain. In order for people to regain control
    of their lives, they have to alter their behavior
    in order to have a positive impact on their
    brains. Many times, a person who has turned to
    drugs suffers from a mental illness. By treating
    the mental illness and the addiction, this person
    can fully recover and lead a normal life.
  • Unfortunately, relapses can happen, and this
    sometimes leads to the idea that treatment is a
    failure. This isnt necessarily so. Successful
    addiction treatment requires continuous
    modification and evaluation. When you approach
    addiction as a chronic disease rather than an
    acute one, the treatment can be effective for the
    long term. The long-term effectiveness of these
    rehab centers in Los Angeles has a real impact on
    people and the city as a whole.

Addiction Can Be Managed
  • According to the American Addiction Centers, drug
    overdoses are now the number one cause of
    injury-related death in the U.S. The Centers for
    Disease Control and Prevention say that around
    114 people a day die from an overdose, or around
    44,000 people every year. Approximately 6,700 are
    sent to emergency rooms for overdose treatment.
    It is estimated that as many as 90 percent of
    people who are in need of rehab dont receive it.
  • Furthermore, there are rehab centers in Los
    Angeles that tout success rates of over 90
    percent or even up to 100 percent. In this case,
    chances are that the programs are short-term ones
    that dont offer any kind of monitoring or
    follow-up. Instead, they are calculating their
    success rate based on how many people complete
    their stay. While there is nothing wrong with
    using this as a statistic to show their success
    in keeping their patients in-house, it is
    important to track long-term rates, as well.
    Rehab technically doesnt end with the stay due
    to the fact a person has a very good chance of
    relapse. Some individuals have been in rehab
    multiple times because either they dont get
    long-term care or they simply quit.

12-Step and Therapy Programs
  • 12-step and other therapy programs offered by
    rehab centers in Los Angeles involve a more
    long-term approach. Sometimes the treatment plan
    integrates medicines when they can be helpful.
    There are times when medications are more
    effective than psychological therapy, but
    psychological therapy is preferred when it is
    possible to use by itself. Because there are
    tiers to addiction, treating those tiers helps
    rehab centers in Los Angeles effectively combat
    drug addiction, thus making society cleaner.
    Without effective approaches, relapse rates
    increase.
