    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Located in Santa Barbara, Calif., Personalized Recovery is one of the 15.1% of facilities in California that provides medically-supervised detox services on an outpatient basis. Unique to the facility, outpatient detoxification may be conducted at the client's home. Alternatively, residential detoxification services are also available. After completion of the detox process, clients may be referred to a treatment program to continue treatment, as needed.


The detox process at Personalized Recovery starts with an individualized treatment plan, using the integrative medicine model, where simple and holistic approaches are utilized. This approach includes a focus on psycho-social and spiritual dimensions that may impact client recovery. The facility combines traditional therapy methods including talk therapies with alternative methods that focus on the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of recovery.

Treatment methods include relapse prevention classes, coping skills workshops, vitamin infused IV therapy, medication management, specialized meal plans, and addiction counseling, both in group and individual settings. Experiential therapies, such as meditation, yoga and exercise, and therapeutic massages, are also offered.

In an effort to improve accountability and to create a recovery community, Personalized Recovery pairs clients with other clients in rehab through a program called "sober companions." The program functions similar to the sponsor system in the 12-Step program, and gives each client an extra source of support.

Clients can choose their treatment approach, whether a 12-step approach or an alternative strategy. This method lets clients choose which option is most appropriate for them with the guidance of qualified staff members.

When clients successfully complete their detoxification program, they have the option to participate in an individualized aftercare program. This program connects clients with resources in the community, as well as ones hosted by the facility, so that they can continue to receive ongoing support.


The staff at Personalized Recovery consists of licensed medical professionals, such as nurses and therapists. The CEO is a licensed addiction treatment specialist with more than 15 years of experience. Alternative therapy instructors have extensive experience working with rehab facilities. There is also a certified alcohol and drug addiction counselor on staff.


Personalized Recovery is located in the mountains of Santa Barbara, Calif. Clients are supervised 24/7 by nursing staff. Transportation services are offered to help clients reach the facility. Alternative therapies are offered outdoors using the natural landscape as a backdrop for activities.
