Los Angeles, California - USA (Los Angeles County)
There is an old saying, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step." This saying can hold particularly true in the case of drug rehabilitation, and First-Step recovery in Los Angeles, California, wants to provide the means for that first step to be taken.
Drug rehabilitation in Los Angeles can take many forms. The time spent at a facility may be as short as 21 to 28 days, or may be as long as a year. Patients may be required to undergo certain phases, such as the withdrawal or detox phase, then an in-patient phase, then an outpatient phase with restrictions, and then outpatient phase with few or no restrictions. Depending on the treatment protocol, an LA drug rehabilitation facility may also require patients to attend support groups and additional therapy sessions for quite some time after being officially released from the program.
First-Step Recovery wants to make the entire process of drug rehabilitation as easy as possible. It is known that sometimes this process is made even more difficult because of the presence of an underlying mental or psychological cause that may have added to, been a result of, or exacerbated the addiction. Treatment programs must be tailored to address both drug rehabilitation and continuing treatment of the mental problem.
Having a mental problem as well as being addicted is sometimes referred to as a "dual diagnosis". If you or someone you know is considered as having a dual diagnosis, First-Step Recovery is a good place to seek treatment. Its location makes it for LA drug rehabilitation candidates to find, and, again, it does offer drug rehabilitation treatment in conjunction with dual diagnosis.
