Find a Substance Abuse Rehab Center or Resource in Lake Forest, CA

The current opioid epidemic has shone a light on just how dangerous it is to abuse drugs. Each year, on average, 6 people die from heroin overdose in Lake Forest.1 Even people who never considered abusing drugs have become dependent and addicted after receiving a prescription for a legitimate medical condition. If you’ve become addicted, you are not alone—millions of people struggle with this disease, and millions recover from it with the right treatment.

Finding treatment doesn’t have to be difficult. You can begin searching here for rehabs in Lake Forest, or if you wish to travel away from a triggering home environment, you can easily search for treatment programs in other cities or states.

If you’ve tried to quit on your own and found it too challenging due to the stress of withdrawal, it may ease your mind to know that this process can be made less difficult with the medical and emotional support of a professional detox program. Medical detox utilizes the care of doctors and nurses, as well as medications, to make the process of quitting drugs and alcohol a safer and more comfortable process than it would be if you tried to go it alone. Not all rehab programs will offer a medical detox approach; some will offer a “social” model which emphasizes supportive care over medication administration. The medical model is usually recommended for individuals dependent on alcohol, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and opioids, due to the distressing and potentially severe symptoms.

If you have unique needs during detox or after, make sure to address these in your search. For example, if you are pregnant, you’ll have special needs during treatment so you’ll require a program to handle those needs. Or if you have a serious illness that needs care as you get sober, such as HIV, you also need to make sure any potential program you choose is prepared to care for your illness.
