About San Diego Addiction Treatment Center – Residential Treatment Facility for Men
Forterus operates 11 residential drug and alcohol treatment centers in Southern California. Each facility offers a full continuum of care, including detox and outpatient services, as well as a safe and supportive environment to begin the journey of recovery. Treatment programs combine proven therapeutic interventions, community integration, 12-step philosophy, and holistic activities to promote and sustain wellness of the mind, body, and spirit. Long-term recovery is possible, and Forterus is committed to providing clients with the tools, resources, and encouragement necessary to achieve it.Residential TreatmentResidential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders TreatmentThese two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.Client & Family Support GroupsGroup therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
