Integrated Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in LA
Alcohol addiction is a difficult disease to recognize and diagnose. Because alcohol is legal and readily available, drinking is often viewed as normal behavior, and problems may remain unnoticed longer than they should. Abusing alcohol has serious consequences, as you might imagine. Addiction treatment in Los Angeles, CA through Harmony Place can help you overcome dependency once and for all.
Binge drinking and alcohol dependence can contribute to strained relationships, financial trouble, personal insecurity and health issues. Without help, you may feel as if you are spiraling out of control, which may cause you to drink more. That’s why it is crucial to understand your options for alcohol addiction treatment.
The Importance of a Dual-Diagnosis Approach
Treating addiction and mental health conditions concurrently is considered dual diagnosis care. Many recent studies conclude that an integrated approach is much more effective in reaching long-term sobriety and behavior modifications than treatment that deals with addiction alone. Nearly half the people with substance addiction or drug and alcohol addiction will also have some form of mental health disorder. By employing dual diagnosis treatment, Harmony Place ensures that the patient’s substance use disorders and mental health are addressed and that they receive an individualized treatment plan for their specific addiction.
We support the literature findings that state at least 90 days of treatment through all phases of care (residential, outpatient, transitional living). This is due to reports and reputable organizations recommending as much. A 2007 Time magazine report concluded, “90 days is just about how long it takes for the typical addicted brain to reset itself and shake off the immediate influence of a drug.” Whether your treatment program is an outpatient rehab, intensive outpatient program, inpatient residential treatment, transitional living, or one of the partial hospitalization programs, Harmony Place’s solution-focused therapy is focused on actionable solutions and positive psychology to treat addiction.
Furthermore, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the National Institute on Drug Abuse recently continue to endorse, “Research has shown unequivocally that good outcomes are contingent on adequate treatment length. Generally, for residential or outpatient treatment, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness.” Because the treatment programs for drug and alcohol addiction last for an extended period, this allows Harmony Place to apply clinical services like dual diagnosis care for the chronic disease of alcohol and drug addiction and mental health issues.
Does Treatment Work? Recovery Rates & More
National Institute on Drug Abuse in 2020 found that 3 out of 4 people who experience addiction eventually recover. With Harmony Place’s unique combination of therapies and individualized treatment plans, recovery rates and success look different for everyone. However, Harmony Place’s addiction treatment in Los Angeles endeavors to exceed these expectations. The NIDA notes: “individual treatment outcomes depend on the extent and nature of the patient’s problems, the appropriateness of treatment and related services used to address those problems, and the quality of interaction between the patient and his or her treatment providers.” Since there is no universal metric for measuring recovery success, a drug rehab center may count factors such as program completion, sobriety rates, internal studies, and client interviews. For an individual who is entering drug rehab or a rehab center for treatment, whether inpatient, outpatient, or partial hospitalization, recovery and success depend on the individual and their support and team.
By scrolling below, you can learn more about our approach to addiction treatment programs in Los Angeles and the many modalities we offer at Harmony Place rehab center.
Learn how medication-assisted treatment helps clients with extreme issues, such as opioid or heroin addiction, and get relief from withdrawal symptoms while detoxing.
In most medication-assisted treatment centers, one medication is substituted for another drug or is the only form of therapy. However, at Harmony Place’s addiction treatment in Los Angeles, this is only one piece of the treatment program, used in conjunction with other forms of clinical, evidence-based, and holistic therapy. Suppose a client is prescribed a specific medication for their addiction treatment. In that case, our physicians choose to do so thoughtfully and as needed, with the intention to taper the patient off the medication when it is safe to do so. Prescribing medication is done specifically to treat more severe withdrawal symptoms, not replace the client’s original drug or alcohol addiction. It is always done at an addiction treatment center.
Detox is only one part of the recovery process, and withdrawal symptoms can be unpredictable. At Harmony Place, you can feel confident that the medical professionals will keep you safe during the harshest of symptoms.
Clinical care at our Los Angeles, California, drug rehab centers is custom-designed with evidence-based therapy combined with holistic modalities to treat different substance use disorders, whether through an intensive outpatient program, inpatient drug rehab center, residential treatment, or outpatient services. Harmony Place is specially licensed to conduct specific programs, detoxifications, talk therapy, and support groups to assist those seeking addiction treatment to live healthier, sober lives.
Because of our special licenses and our high quality of care for our patients who are seeking a nationally-accredited treatment provider, Harmony Place has the unique distinction of meeting a standard of care that only 5 percent of licensed adult residential treatment facilities in California have met.
Addiction Treatment Program Modalities in Southern California
Because Harmony Place rehab center in Los Angeles provides a safe and structured environment, our treatment programs are based on personal responsibility, individual dignity, and self-esteem to explore the obstacles to recovery and the underlying issues that contribute to or exacerbate addiction.
At our addiction treatment center, clients receive individual therapy sessions to explore sensitive topics, set goals, and manage treatment from the client’s admission to the treatment center to completion of the program.
A drug abuse problem, such as cocaine addiction, heroin addiction, or even prescription medication addiction; alcohol abuse problem; or substance use disorder can cause dysfunction in the central nervous system. This dysfunction, coupled with the stress of coping without drugs or alcohol, are added factors that could lead a person down the road to relapse. However, with the comprehensive care and relapse-resistance building the individual and their team work on during their stay in our treatment center, alongside the dual diagnosis care they receive as part of their treatment program, relief from these stressors and pain and long-term recovery is possible.
Group therapy often helps an individual in a different way from individual therapy. By recognizing shared experiences, clients in the addiction treatment center may feel more positive and validated by sharing their own experiences, mitigating any anxiety symptoms they might have had about entering a treatment program. Group therapy also allows individuals to develop social skills and adaptive behaviors by observing and modeling others in the treatment center and support group.
Family Therapy & Program
Family therapy also has an essential impact on the success of many programs. By providing psychoeducation for family members, Harmony Place supplies them with insight into addiction and the behaviors family members may have exhibited by their loved ones. Harmony Place delivers education for the family, and our rehab facility also provides family therapy to rebuild trust within the family unit.
Treatment for Every Level of Care
Residential Treatment: Residential treatment can assist those who suffer from the following challenges: trauma, eating disorders, substance abuse, cognitive development, problems related to personality, and addictive and compulsive behaviors. As a residential treatment provider, Harmony Place allows individuals to experience around-the-clock care while facing the challenges of addiction and mental health.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): The Partial Hospitalization Program is an outpatient rehab program that provides therapy and treatment during the day and free time at night. PHP is similar to an intensive outpatient rehab program yet offers more time for patients to attend on-site programs, like group therapy.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): An intensive outpatient program allows patients to go through rehab and move on to immerse themselves in a healthy environment to take on their addictions and behaviors.
Outpatient Treatment: Just down the street from our residential property, our Los Angeles outpatient rehab treatment facility is home to the same quality of personalized care offered in our residential program. The outpatient rehab stage is ideal for living outside of a residential rehab environment while still receiving helpful therapy and education that helps keep relapse at bay.
Transitional Living: Once inpatient treatment has been completed, transitional living provides a structured place to maintain a sober life, while still transitioning into their everyday lives. Our transitional living program in Los Angeles, California, allows individuals to live in a sober environment overseen by addiction recovery professionals, which provides a source of accountability while allowing individuals to focus on one aspect of sober living at once.
Aftercare and Alumni Programs: Alumni and graduates of our drug rehab and alcohol addiction treatment programs are invited and encouraged to remain engaged with Harmony Place through the Alumni Program. A licensed therapist leads this program, but Alumni Mentors become leaders in alumni meetings, online support groups, and social events.
Clinical Programs & Therapies
Your personalized treatment program at our Los Angeles Drug Rehab Centers may include:
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT focuses on mindfulness, living in the moment, coping with stress, regulating emotions, and improving relationships with others. Originally developed as a therapy for mental health issues, DBT has been found effective in addiction medicine.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is a form of talk therapy that focuses on your thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and feelings. It is an excellent tool for discovering negative emotions and ideas and ways to uproot them. While the therapists may ask direct questions that might make individuals uncomfortable, it is done within a safe space to help work through the underlying causes of addiction.
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET): MET is a rapid form of counseling to help clients resolve any mixed feelings about their addiction treatment or entering into an addiction treatment center, whether on an outpatient basis or in a residential treatment program.
- Relapse Prevention Education: This type of education provides techniques, such as SMART recovery techniques, to maintain both short-term goals and long-term sobriety
- Nutritional Therapy: Maintaining a healthy body with proper nutrition is also part of a sober lifestyle.
- Mindfulness: This is the process of being aware of your thoughts and feelings. Mindfulness is living in the moment, and mindfulness groups are a type of therapy that can help individuals look objectively at their behaviors to identify the underlying thoughts that inspire them. Over time, people learn that when they change their thoughts, they can change their behaviors and thereby change their lives, living more emotionally healthy lives.
- Art Therapy: Art Therapy can take many forms, such as painting, Drawing, Knitting, Sculpting, Poetry, Playing or listening to music, Journaling, Dancing, Coloring, or Scrapbooking. These types of therapies can help many people avoid their addiction triggers.

“If you want something to change, you have to do something different.”
Absolutely the best recovery center around.
I am forever grateful to have had this experience. I would recommend anyone who wanted help to come here. This place literally saved my life. I have overcome so many obstacles that always stood in the way of my recovery. It’s not just because I was ready… the approaches the therapists use come from an empathetic, compassionate, and understanding place. They were able to hold the mirror up and help guide me through making solid changes.
This place literally saved my life.
After overdosing, my parents forced me to check into rehab.After interviewing many other facilities, I decided to go to Harmony Place from my home in Phoenix. I was struggling with…a drug addiction and had been trying for years to recover. In the past, left 2 treatment centers AMA and 1 AWOL. I had very negative experiences in the other treatment facilities, especially with my therapists, so I didn’t go in with an open mind or good attitude- even though they worked with my parents regarding finances. However, the staff was patient with me. The techs were kind, knowledgeable, and many were in recovery themselves.
They Answered on the First Call
When I called Harmony Place…I knew immediately that this was the right place for my child… Harmony Place is specifically designed for…and tailored to providing a safe environment. The staff [are knowledgeable and some are in recovery]. The staff knew each client and were on top of each client’s progress. Harmony Place has a small clientele and each client are able to receive all the help they were entitled to. I would recommend Harmony Place to anyone who is looking for a small setting… My daughter is currently going into sober living and her counselors did a wonderful job in finding a right fit for her – affordable, safe and a good environment for her.
I’ve Been Searching for the Perfect Words…
I left Harmony Place in August of 2015 and I have been searching for the perfect words to describe my experience during my stay; and still I can’t really find them. How do you really describe a place with a staff and a program that saved you? Addiction is a terrible thing to go through and a heart breaking thing for your loved ones to watch. Many people, including myself go into different treatment centers throughout their addiction searching for ways to find recovery. Nothing worked for me, not the 5 rehab stays I had, then, I came here.
