    A detailed list of the primary cases commonly treated here.

    Opiod Addiction, Substance Abuse


    Substance Abuse + Addiction

    Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. Overuse of these substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence.

    Substance abuse is treatable and the duration of treatment and most successful sobriety can require weeks or months of professional care at McAlister Institute for Treatment and Educ (MITE)/East County Adolescent Detox in El Cajon.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities like McAlister Institute for Treatment and Educ (MITE)/East County Adolescent Detox support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids. People often abuse prescription opioids to get high instead of adhering to a medical provider’s directions. Addiction forces people to crave for opioids impulsively without factoring in the dangers these drugs bring to them.

    Most opioid addiction treatment plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. However, that’s only the beginning. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction. This overall approach decreases the likelihood of falling off the wagon. In some instances, therapies can be done at home.


    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Long Term (>30 Days), Residential, Short Term (<30 Days), with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Aftercare Support

    Aftercare support plays an important role when sustaining a patient’s full recovery at McAlister Institute for Treatment and Educ (MITE)/East County Adolescent Detox. Patients also receive assistance in making living arrangements in halfway houses. Career counseling is available for those who want a fresh start. There are also local community programs in El Cajon, CA such as Alcoholics Anonymous.

    Inpatient Care

    Inpatient rehab means living at the El Cajon, CA facility while all aspects of an addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. This helps limit the distractions and increase the focus on recovery. Typical inpatient rehab stays are approximately one month long.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    Addiction is often caused by an underlying issue. Mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or anxiety disorder could lie at the root. A dual diagnosis by McAlister Institute for Treatment and Educ (MITE)/East County Adolescent Detox aims to treat the addiction as well as the cause of the addiction. This ensures the patient will not fall back on old ways after treatment is complete.

    Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

    Alcoholics Anonymous is the original 12-Step program that established the model that other 12-Step programs, like Narcotics Anonymous, follow. 12-Step programs are support groups that are led and run by members of each group. These groups use the “Big Book,” which contains the 12-Step philosophy of recovery and ongoing abstinence from drugs or alcohol.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is suitable for patients recovering from an addiction of any kind. This therapy modality strengthens a person’s ability to stay on top of their emotional state. CBT is also suitable for managing co-occurring disorders like depression and bipolar illness. It helps people in California communicate and express their emotions well.

    Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

    Dialectical behavioral therapy focuses on eliminating negative thoughts such as suicidal thoughts. It is useful in the treatment of patients with uncontrollable emotions. The term “dialectic” means the integration of opposites. In the substance abuse context, DBT refers to accepting the patient’s addiction.
