Integrated Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Abuse
Harmony Place, a set of several drug rehab centers bordering the Santa Monica Mountains in Southern California, treats addiction from a “whole person” perspective. Our program focuses not only on the individual but the family system as well, not just on substance abuse issues but on mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health. We provide a welcoming environment for not only the client, but the family as well, in our West Los Angeles treatment centers to facilitate a dedicated team effort to recovery.
Harmony Place isn’t just an individual therapy provider but also a family treatment center. Family, no matter the part they have played in an individual’s drug addiction or substance abuse, plays a significant role in an individual’s recovery journey by participating in the addiction treatment through family therapy sessions and psychoeducation for family members to rebuild trust, as well as Multi-family Group sessions at the Harmony Place residential facility in Los Angeles County.
We not only treat your addiction but also address any underlying emotional and mental health concerns that may escalate the manifestation of your symptoms. We believe that recovery care coupled with stabilization of emotional well-being is the key to successfully maintaining your sobriety.
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.
What is the recovery rate for addiction?
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 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.
