Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Detox, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

One of the first things an addict should do when entering treatment is to abstain from using illicit drugs completely. Depending on the length of time that the person has been using, the addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. Fortunately, detox doesn’t have to be done alone, and withdrawal symptoms can be managed medically in an inpatient or outpatient setting. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. Detoxification allows the addict to rid the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol and gives the addict a clean slate for their recovery.

Inpatient treatment for alcoholism or drug addiction is an option that provides the addict with a supportive environment in which they can stop using. After detox, an inpatient treatment center provides a structured environment for the addict to recover from their addiction and begin taking steps toward a lifetime of sobriety.

This type of treatment is appropriate for addicts that are most in need of intensive care and supervision. This includes those who were unable to quit on their own, those who need more structure than they can get in outpatient treatment, and those whose addiction has led them into legal trouble or severe health problems.

The Intensive Outpatient Program offered by Ethridge Center is designed for those who need intensive care but would rather get it in the comfort of their own home. The treatment programs vary in duration and intensity and can be tailored to suit the patient’s needs. The program includes regular visits to the facility, though the overnight stay is not needed. IOP is suitable for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs and are in the transition phase. It helps the patient live at home and discharge some work or school responsibilities even while undergoing treatment. The patients gradually get back to their routine life with the support of a friend or family member.

Outpatient treatment is often used for drug addicts in drug rehab. Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. This form of treatment is also called ‘day-treatment’. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days.

Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for ‘slipping back’ into the addiction, for those who:

  • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
  • Can handle stressors that might trigger relapse
  • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober
  • Have a support system that allows them to go to a facility a few times a week while still keeping their current responsibilities
  • Have no legal obligations, being either on parole or probation, that require them to seek treatment at a mandatory facility
  • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
  • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober

Sober living homes, also known as halfway houses, provide recovering people with a structured drug-free environment to live in that bridges inpatient rehab and the much less structured world of outpatient rehab. Sober living homes offer a person early in recovery the opportunity to practice recovery skills in a safe environment.

The atmosphere in sober living homes is less restrictive than in an inpatient facility. Members have to follow many rules, including not drinking and using drugs and paying rent and bills. There is no limit to the period of stay. As long as you stay, you should follow the rules because it’s the opportunity for individual and group sobriety.

Therapies & Programs

Family therapy is beneficial for people who are in addiction treatment services because it offers addicts the opportunity to work with their family members to better understand what led them to make choices that contributed to their addiction.

This type of therapy helps family members reach a deeper understanding of how they can best support their loved one during recovery. It also helps the addict better understand their own motivations and triggers that led them to turn to substance abuse.

Family therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

  • Assists family members in processing difficult feelings so they don’t blame or resent recovering addicts
  • Assists family members in understanding how addiction has impacted the addict and everyone who is involved with them
  • Allows the addict to take responsibility for their actions, while encouraging improved communication skills
  • Helps family members understand how to best support an individual in recovery so addicts don’t relapse again.

Group therapy can help build a stronger support system and give addicts in San Diego, CA insight into their addiction that they gain through shared conversations. Group therapy occurs in a controlled group environment, exclusive of one on one meetings. This makes it safer for patients to feel comfortable sharing the struggles they’re going through and gaining perspective.

Trauma therapy is beneficial for people who are recovering from drug addiction because it helps them heal from past traumas that may have caused them to turn to harmful substances or led them to experience negative emotions that contributed to their destructive behaviors.

This type of treatment works by processing difficult experiences so individuals can learn how to process these events without having to turn to substances for coping.

Trauma therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

  • Helps individuals understand their experiences and emotional responses to difficult events, including why they turned to drugs or alcohol
  • Provides them with comfort and support while working through difficult emotions related to these traumatic experiences
  • Offers an opportunity for addicts to have a voice and be heard, which can improve their self-esteem
  • Can help them develop coping skills so they can better respond to triggers instead of turning to substance abuse.
