If you want to attend the best alcohol rehab facility in Los Angeles, you’ve found it at Magnolia Recovery. We care deeply about your recovery and well-being and have the skill and expertise to guide you through the most challenging parts of rehab. Keep reading to learn more about healing from addiction and why Magnolia Recovery is your best option for a different way of life.

Alcohol Rehab That Allows You To Still Go To Work & School

You may worry that you can’t spare time from your commitments to attend rehab. The good news is that rehab programs at Magnolia are scheduled around your work, school, or family commitments. Deciding to ask for help to quit drinking, or using drugs, is a courageous decision. Many Americans struggle with using drugs and alcohol to cope, over 20 million every day, yet only a fraction of that number ever receive the help they need, like rehab. This could be because drug use is still heavily stigmatized in America, even though research proves that addiction is not a choice. Substance use disorders, or addiction, are not moral failings or character flaws. All major experts agree that addiction is a treatable medical illness. Addiction is a disease that happens slowly and over time. The part of our brain that controls motivation, our instinctual need for survival, releases dopamine when we eat, exercise, and use drugs. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that sends messages to the cells in our brains, and when it is activated, your brain says, “Yes!” 

We’re hard-wired by our survival instinct to do things that get that yes reaction. Yes, eat that food. Yes, drink that alcohol. Dopamine is the reward your brain wants, so it tells you to acquire more of what makes it go “yes.” This is how the cycle of addiction begins. Your brain teaches you to seek drugs at the expense of your health. Eventually, your central nervous system adapts to functioning with alcohol present, and you need increasing amounts to achieve the same high. When the effects wear off, your central nervous system sends messages to your brain and body that it requires more alcohol. These messages are unpleasant and signal the beginning of physical withdrawal.

Once you’re addicted to a substance, you begin using it not to feel good but to feel normal. This is because you have developed a physical dependency. This dependency causes changes in your brain, and imaging shows that areas of the brain affected are critical thinking, judgment, learning, memory, decision-making, and behavior control. This is why people’s personalities seem to change when in the grips of a substance use disorder and why people show similar signs like stealing and lying to cover their actions. Addiction can happen to anyone at any time in their life. We are not immune to this disease, but specific life experiences, such as intergenerational trauma and adverse childhood experiences, make us more susceptible.

Benefits of Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

Suppose you’re considering attending rehab for alcohol use but are worried about finding childcare or how you’ll pay your bills during therapy. In that case, outpatient rehab programs will be just what you’re looking for. We offer several alcohol rehab programs based on national models set forth by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA). Each program has unique benefits. Outpatient treatment, meaning therapy where you leave at the end of the day, offers maximum flexibility for those with obligations they can’t put aside to attend inpatient treatment. Outpatient rehab may benefit you by 

  • It allows you to continue working. You’ll be able to keep working based on the type of outpatient rehab program you choose. Therapy sessions are scheduled to occur before or after work hours, so you won’t have to take vacation days or explain why you need time off to your boss. We all need to eat and pay our bills, which can make the idea of missing work extremely stressful.
  • It lowers treatment costs. Because you either go home or to a sober living facility after hours, outpatient rehab programs cost less than inpatient ones. This will be even more important to those without healthcare insurance.
  • It allows you to continue to attend school. Stopping your college or university program to attend rehab could rob you of your momentum for education and make you feel isolated and ashamed. An outpatient rehab program will let you keep studying and attend classes.
  • It puts your family first. Many people have no one to take over childcare duties to attend rehab. This is considered an influencing factor for fewer women seeking treatment than men. 

How Long Does Outpatient Rehab Last With Magnolia?

Outpatient treatment may work for you if you are experiencing a mild substance use disorder. It’s essential to have a sober, supportive home environment when attending an outpatient program. Sober living houses are an option for those in outpatient treatment who don’t have a safe place to live at night. The length of your rehab stay will be a combination of factors, such as

  • Age
  • General overall health
  • Co-occurring disorders
  • Substance being used
  • Length of substance use
  • Clinical progress
  • Your Support network at home

We are all unique; therefore, we respond to treatment in our timeframe. Rehab programs are generally broken up into 30-day periods; some people can complete treatment in this timeframe while others stay for 60 or 90-day periods and beyond. There is no right or wrong length of time in rehab, just what works for you.

IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program)

At Magnolia Recovery, you’re never just a number on a case file. Your well-being is important to us, as is that of your loved ones. Our facility is a residential treatment center, not a hospital. It will feel like home to you when you begin treatment with us. Because we are a small, boutique rehab center, we have a high staff-to-patient ratio meaning you’ll receive the best-individualized care. You’ll be safe and comfortable and find solidarity with those completing rehab with you. You’ll learn a routine and how to practice new, healthy habits under the guidance of expert specialists. 

Our IOP averages at least 9 hours a week, consisting of various therapies for substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders. Over 40% of people with addiction have co-occurring mental health issues like PTSD, major depressive disorder, anxiety, or schizophrenia. IOP therapies can be scheduled around your obligations, before or after work, or during breaks in your school day.

PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program)

A PHP will see you traveling to our facility from home during the day, should you have a safe home environment. If not, we’ll arrange a room in a sober living home for you to return to at night. You can expect to put at least 20 hours a week into therapy when attending a PHP, both individual and group sessions, consisting of evidence-based therapy models. 

Which Outpatient Treatment, IOP or PHP Is Right For Me?

You’ll find the answer to which program is a question in communicating with your case manager. Studies show that people who complete more rehab therapy have better outcomes for recovery. You must factor your work, family, or school obligations against your well-being. The more time you can dedicate to healing, the less chance of relapse. Addiction therapy has no one-size-fits-all; your care team will work with you to build the program that suits your needs.

Why Choose Magnolia

We’d like to share this review with you, “First of all, I could not be more thrilled about Magnolia and Trupath Recovery. The experience during my stay was fantastic and truly changed my life.  Every aspect of my treatment there was geared toward me and my recovery.  The facility was clean and comfortable, and I had everything I needed to support my sobriety journey.  I have spoken with some people that went to other treatment and recovery facilities, where they felt as if they were merely a dollar sign.  This is NOT one of these places! All the staff was so pleasant and genuinely had a passion for helping us struggling with this disease.  All of the details (billing, leave from my job, aftercare, etc.) were handled for me by the fantastic technicians, nurses, therapists, case managers, and counselors, so I could put all my focus into getting better.  I could go on and on, but I just want to express how thrilled I am that I chose Trupath.”
