Intensive Residential Treatment Center Tarzana
To achieve long-term sobriety and seamlessly reintegrate with society, some patients need a higher level of care that can only be achieved under the continuous guidance and support of therapists around the clock.
Intensive Residential Treatment at Northstar Detox and Rehab Center does just that, and more. Since we are owned and operated by physicians, our patients can enjoy the benefit of evidence-based therapies and activities that can fast-track their recovery.
Who Needs Intensive Residential Treatment (IRT)?
When a client has been successfully detoxified from alcohol and/or drugs, many clients continue to need Inpatient Residential Care, post-detox, in order to deal with post-detox challenges and complications.
This detoxification and/or post detoxification period can bring on withdrawal symptoms that are more than uncomfortable. In fact, complications can be dangerous and the process requires our highest level of care.
Additionally, you may benefit from our intensive residential treatment program in Tarzana, Los Angeles if:
- You need a structured environment
- Your current environment is not helping your recover
- You do not have access to an environment that is supportive and conducive for treatment and recovery
- You have a high risk of developing health complications
- Your condition is not responding to treatment
- Your condition is complex and needs careful monitoring
Before admission to our facility, our patients need to undergo screenings and assessments to ensure that they really need a higher level of care to recover.
What are the benefits of residential treatment?
There are many treatment programs for patients with SUD and mental health disorders. If outpatient treatment fails to show improvement or if the patient cannot manage the withdrawal symptoms, he or she may be a good candidate for residential treatment. Such treatment has the following benefits:
Our patients strictly follow a structured daily routine to help them overcome impulsiveness and high-risk behaviors. Having a routine also helps patients focus on their recovery. Because their daily activities are pre-determined, there is minimal downtime that might bring out old habits and cravings. It also helps them develop willpower, keep commitments, and maintain accountability.
Since patients are removed from their old environment, which may have triggers, into a new environment that is specially designed to support recovery, patients can concentrate on getting healthier and better. They are also freed from other obligations, so they can finally focus on themselves and develop new habits.
Addiction has a stigma that may make a person hesitant to get medical help. Most patients who struggle with SUDs and mental health disorders may feel alone, trapped, guilty, and even misunderstood.
Everyone at Northstar Detox and Rehab understands the challenges and struggles of someone who has an addiction disorder. Being in a supportive community can foster positivity and make the road to recovery a lot less difficult.
Our patients receive intensive treatment that aims to make their recovery sustainable. We do not only focus on the signs and symptoms of withdrawal syndrome; we also help patients develop new habits and willpower so that they can lead sober, healthy, and better lives.
Patients admitted to our residential treatment center in Los Angeles have better access to more treatment options. Using extensive assessment tools and equipment, our doctors can develop the most suitable plan for our patients. Their behavior is closely studied, and their progress is carefully monitored so that we can give them the best treatment with the most promising results.
