Drug Addictions We Treat
Both prescription and illicit drug use are growing problems across the United States. While many prescription drugs can be safe and effective when used as directed, they can also come with a high risk for addiction. Some people switch from prescription drugs to illicit drugs because they are often less expensive. CareForward Health treats a variety of drug addictions including:
- Prescription opioids (pain killers) such as morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, Vicodin®, Percocet®, and Dilaudid®.
- Prescription sedatives such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates, Lunesta®, and Ambien®.
- Prescription stimulants such as Adderall®, Ritalin®, Concerta®, amphetamine, and methylphenidate.
- Illicit drugs such as heroin, cocaine, crack, methamphetamine, GHB, LSD, MDMA, and inhalants.
With proper treatment and drug rehab, clients can break the cycle of addiction and develop strategies to deal with stress, challenges, pain, and other obstacles in healthier ways. They can rediscover the joys in life through sobriety.
“I had an amazing experience here. The staff is amazing, and the friends you make along the way are even better. Care Forward is easily the best rehab I have been to. And the only one that has worked for me.”- Sloan M. 2016
Treatment for Alcohol Addiction
In America, drinking alcohol has become an unspoken social norm. Because of its widespread acceptance, this can make recognizing the signs of alcoholism more challenging. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), in 2012 more than 17 million Americans age 18 or older had an alcohol use disorder. However, only about 1.4 million of these individuals sought alcohol rehab to address problematic drinking.
Alcohol can take a serious toll on the body and mind. Treatment for alcohol addiction at CareForward Health supports clients in reversing some of these effects and moving forward without reliance on alcohol. Clients learn how to socialize, communicate, and celebrate substance-free, having a clearer mind and increased energy to do the things they enjoy. Alcohol doesn’t have to be part of the equation to have a good time, and clients are able to explore the history, art, entertainment, and culture that bring Los Angeles alive.
Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment
Mental health plays an important part not only in drug rehab, but also in everyday life. Keeping a positive attitude and implementing healthy ways of dealing with life’s ups and downs can make each day more fulfilling. However, many people battling addiction are also struggling with a mental health disorder. The symptoms of co-occurring disorders can be very similar making it difficult to tell the difference. Some people turn to substance use as a way of trying to relieve the symptoms of mental illness, even though drugs and alcohol can actually make them worse. It can become a vicious cycle.
CareForward Health recognizes the importance of addressing both conditions in recovery. Co-occurring disorder treatment allows clients to gain a better understanding of how substance use and mental illness impact one another in their lives. In addition to drug or alcohol rehab, clients also undergo treatment to help them manage their mental health. Individual therapy, emotional workshops, group counseling, and more are used to create a well-rounded approach to treating co-occurring disorders and empowering clients to regain control and live a life they love.
