Addiction in America
Whether it is a dependence on (addiction to) alcohol, opioids, “street drugs” or any other substance, statistics show addiction kills thousands of Americans each year. Combined, smoking, alcohol, and illicit drug use kill approximately 12 million people each year worldwide. In the United States, at least 21 million people struggle with at least one addiction disorder, yet only 10 percent of those will ever receive addiction treatment. According to various surveys, almost two-thirds of American families have been significantly impacted (in some way) by addictions to drugs or alcohol. It is safe to say that virtually everyone knows someone with a substance use disorder, be it a family member, a friend, or a co-worker.
For decades, addiction was viewed as a choice. In the eyes of many, those who abused alcohol, drugs, or both were making a conscious, voluntary decision to drink, swallow pills, or introduce illicit substances into their body. Fortunately, over time science has determined addiction is not a choice. Many scientists, addiction treatment providers, and mental health counselors will agree, addiction is indeed a disease, and just like many other chronic and debilitating diseases, addiction can be treated.

What Exactly is Addiction?
Addiction is often referred to in clinical terms as a substance use disorder. Described in the simplest terms, addiction is the strong compulsion to obtain and use substances, despite ongoing adverse and potentially dangerous consequences. Addiction is also a mental health disorder that affects the brain and changes behavior. The development of an addiction or a substance abuse disorder can result from the use of various substances, including alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription medications, and even some (legal) over-the-counter medications.
Addiction is a complex process that affects various parts of the brain and body. The ongoing use of alcohol or drugs is often responsible for disruptions of regions within the brain responsible for reward, judgment, learning, memory, and motivation in those who are struggling with addiction. As a result, people who have long-term substance abuse disorders may not be entirely aware of their impact on their body and functioning.
Know the Signs
Symptoms of Substance Abuse
All addictions involve physical or psychological processes. Each person’s experience with addiction is slightly different, and therefore substance abuse treatment programs must be designed specifically for the individual seeking treatment. Despite the highly personal nature of addiction treatment needs, each addiction commonly involves one or more common signs and symptoms. Some of the most common signs of addiction include:
While all of the above are common signs and symptoms, it is essential to remember that the signs of addiction can and do vary from person to person as do their specific treatment needs. Therefore, when choosing an addiction treatment program in Orange County, it is vital to research the program and make sure they offer treatment models that suit your specific needs.
If you or someone you love is exhibiting any of the above signs and symptoms or are concerned that they may have a substance use disorder, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. Our programs at Indah Recovery provide treatment for the most common forms of addiction with treatment models designed to meet each patients’ individual needs.
Preparing for Treatment
What to Expect at Our Orange County Rehab
At Indah Recovery in Dana Point, California, we provide a comprehensive treatment program that includes support from the beginning of your treatment throughout recovery.
Detox is the first, essential step in the addiction treatment process. During detox, your body is cleared of harmful toxins and substances that remain present in your body throughout your addiction. Our skilled staff will monitor withdrawal symptoms throughout detox and administer medications if necessary, to help you remain safe and comfortable through the process.
Residential Inpatient Treatment
At a residential inpatient treatment program, clients live on-site in a residential setting. Throughout their stay, clients participate in various treatment methods that aim to help achieve long-term recovery. Inpatient residential treatment is the most effective and successful form of addiction treatment.
Also known as partial day treatment, partial hospitalization programs are a combination of inpatient and outpatient treatment models. With this type of treatment, clients live at home (or sometimes a sober living environment) at night and attend treatment during the day.
Intensive outpatient programs are generally offered as a step-down care option that allows clients to slowly return to their everyday life while continuing to seek treatment. Many intensive outpatient programs in the Orange County area offer several outpatient weekly sessions with individual therapy every week to help maintain recovery support.
Outpatient treatment is suitable for those who have completed an intensive outpatient program. Outpatient treatment provides continued care on a less intensive basis.
Sober living homes are an essential part of addiction and substance abuse treatment programs in Dana Point, CA. At Indah Recovery, we work with several sober living homes in Orange County who provide a safe and structured environment to support those in early recovery.
