Alcohol Addiction Rehab in California
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), an estimated 15 million people suffer from an alcohol use disorder (AUD) in the United States. In many cases, treating alcohol addiction presents different challenges from treatment for drugs like heroin. Part of the challenge is because of the way alcoholism often starts.
How Does Alcohol Addiction Start?
There are many factors which contribute to why drinking becomes a problem. Some factors include genetics, social environment, how you were raised and perhaps your mental and emotional health. Some people are at a higher risk of developing their addiction due to mental health disorders such as depression or anxiety where they try to self-medicate with the use of alcohol.
Because of its legal status and social acceptability, people struggling with alcohol addiction face temptation to drink even within their circles of family and friends, prompting the need for dedicated aftercare and support groups.
What Are the Warning Signs of Alcoholism?
If you or a loved one are wondering whether or not to seek treatment, you need to begin by recognizing the signs of alcoholism. Ask yourself some of the following questions to help indicate if you or a loved one needs to seek help for alcohol addiction:
- You regularly drink more than you intend to
- You are missing work due to drinking
- Your drinking has led to problems with family or friends
- You regularly “black out” and don’t remember what you did while you were drinking
- You lie about your drinking
- You drink to help cope with stress or anxiety
- You are having trouble stopping your drinking
- You start to experience withdrawal symptoms when not drinking such as the “shakes”
Treatment for Alcoholism at Ranch Creek Recovery
Alcohol rehab centers are also essential for the initial detox process and the difficult withdrawal symptoms that come along with it. While withdrawal from any drug is unpleasant, alcohol withdrawal can result in seizures, hallucinations and in extreme cases, death.
For this reason, medically supervised alcohol detox is a must, and Ranch Creek Recovery provides detox and further treatment in a private, comfortable setting.
We Never Have More than Six Clients
By design, our alcohol addiction treatment center never houses more than six patients at any one time. This allows our experienced staff to provide unparalleled personal attention to you or your loved one. You’ll receive individualized care that also includes non-traditional methods like equine-assisted therapy for a more holistic recovery experience.
We Help You Coordinate Travel and Get Here Fast
We help remove any barriers you may have getting to alcohol addiction rehab. We will guide you from the first phone call and help you arrive to treatment with us safely.
We Accept Most Private PPO Plans
We are proud to accept most major private PPO and some HMO insurance plans for our alcohol addiction treatment program. Unfortunately, we can’t accept state or government insurance such as Medi-Cal or Medicaid. Private pay plans and financing are available for those who do not have insurance.
Holistic and Experiential Therapies
In addition to a whole range of evidence-based treatment methods, Ranch Creek Recovery also offers non-traditional therapies like yoga and guided meditation, acupuncture, amino acid treatments, gardening, fitness and outdoor activities to help heal your mind, body and spirit.
Why Ranch Creek Recovery is So Different
As you review your alcohol treatment program options, a few of the most important questions to ask will be:
- How many clients are in the treatment program together?
- What are your max group sizes?
- Does your program offer individual assessments and therapy by licensed clinicians?
These are very important questions to ask because it will illustrate how individualized the treatment program really will be for you or your loved one.
If you are in a program with say, 10, 25, or 40 other people, you are just not going to get the attention you really need and deserve.
That is why Ranch Creek Recovery was developed to provide a private and intimate setting which sets us apart from other alcohol addiction treatment centers in California. Our talented treatment team accomplishes this by keeping our client caseload at a maximum of six for the entire program.
Non 12-Step Treatment for Alcohol Addiction
Ranch Creek Recovery’s alcohol treatment center utilizes an evidence-based treatment program that focuses on treatment modalities that are proven to work. If you have attended 12-step meetings or programs in the past and these have not worked for you, Ranch Creek Recovery’s holistic approach could be a successful alternative to traditional alcohol addiction treatment.
A non-12 step approach will focus on you as an individual to get down to the core of underlying mental health and medical conditions. We start with in-depth assessments and utilize various therapeutic modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and equine assisted therapy, as well as traditional talk and group therapy sessions, during the treatment process.
We understand that everyone comes from a unique background and has different specific conditions that will need to be addressed.
