Making the decision to seek treatment for drug or alcohol addiction isn’t easy. Despite being aware of the harm addiction is inflicting, it’s hard to imagine living any other way and leaving behind the people, behaviors and substances that have become so familiar. For many, substance use is a crutch that helps them cope with difficult experiences and the idea of facing life on its own terms, without drugs or alcohol, can be frightening.
At True Recovery, we are intimately familiar with these feelings of uncertainty when it comes to entering treatment. Our compassionate team of medical professionals and addiction experts are experienced at helping clients navigate these challenges of early recovery, guiding them as they complete detox and take their first steps toward a life free of drugs or alcohol. It is here where all the tools needed to journey toward a life of sobriety can be learned and recovery from substance abuse begins, providing individuals with the support and structure they need to achieve lasting sobriety.
What is Residential Addiction Treatment?
Residential treatment, commonly referred to as inpatient treatment, is the best option for those who wish to focus solely on their path to recovery. Beginning the journey towards recovery at a certified and licensed residential addiction treatment center allows clients to focus on their recovery without the distractions, temptations or triggers.
True Recovery’s residential treatment program in Orange County, California, offers clients the tools and skills they need while treating them with the compassion and respect they deserve. Clients are taught new ways to deal with stress and temptations while learning new tools to combat their addictions and identify the underlying issues which often contribute to their substance abuse.
Who is Residential Treatment For?
Residential treatment is appropriate for a wide variety of individuals seeking to overcome their addiction, whether they’ve been to treatment before or not. Constant access to addiction specialists, licensed therapists and medical professionals allow clients to fully engage in the transformational experience of recovery by removing many of the roadblocks that can interfere with the healing process. After initial stabilization and detox, most individuals in recovery transition into this level of care. Residential treatment has been proven as one of the most effective approaches for helping individuals overcome their drug or alcohol addiction, as they live on-site in a recovery-oriented environment. While in residential treatment, patients are removed from harmful or negative settings, influences or temptations that may complicate the recovery process and derail progress by inviting a relapse. By providing structure and stability in a supportive atmosphere away from home, patients have the opportunity to step back from their lives and concentrate on healing from addiction without distraction or interruption. During this time, patients are exposed to a variety of techniques for lasting sobriety, such as:
- New coping mechanisms
- Life skills development
- Healthy management of triggers
- Renewed sense of purpose or meaning
- Strategies for sober living
- Relapse prevention techniques
- Mindfulness practice
- Healthy communication skills and peer support
- Treatment goals
- Chemical dependency education
As patients hone their recovery skills, our experienced team of specialists and licensed clinicians guide them as they dig deep into their addiction and explore the root causes, behavioral patterns and unresolved issues that contribute to their substance use. They’ll gain a deeper understanding of the role substance abuse has played in their lives and how it has affected themselves and others. As patients progress through True Recovery’s program, they’ll begin to rebuild the confidence they need to leave drugs or alcohol behind and maintain lasting sobriety outside of treatment.

At True Recovery, patients will be exposed to various therapeutic treatments and surrounded by like-minded peers and an experienced, compassionate residential staff available 24/7. They’ll also work closely with our addiction specialists to develop an individualized treatment plan that incorporates their unique needs, recovery goals, mental health concerns and more, encompassing the full scope of their substance use. To facilitate a therapeutic experience where patients can achieve deep and lasting healing from addiction, we incorporate a unique blend of traditional and alternative techniques, including:

Treatment Options Catered to the Individual
At True Recovery, we do not expect our clients to mold to a program. We understand that a “one-size-fits-all” approach isn’t effective because each individual has their own story and a different path that led them to us. Instead of a cookie-cutter treatment plan, our team of recovery experts craft an individual program tailored specifically for each client that considers their strengths and weaknesses, experiences with addiction, substance use history and more. To give our patients the freedom to find the best-fitting program for themselves, we offer a host of proven methods for achieving sobriety that include both traditional 12-step programs as well as alternative programs such as SMART Recovery.
Taking the Next Step
Recovery from addiction isn’t a linear experience, nor is it a single event or cure. It’s a lifelong process that often begins with the decision to make a change and build a better life without drugs or alcohol. Detox and residential care are crucial parts of the journey to sobriety, but the real challenge comes after treatment has ended. When clients return to their daily lives, they’ll need to implement all of the skills they learned in recovery to avoid relapse and sustain long-term sobriety.
Extended care and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are a common stepping stone after residential treatment that provides the perfect opportunity for clients to practice their recovery skills in a safe, supportive environment. Extended care and IOPs allow individuals to return to their lives and resume work, school and other obligations while retaining the structure of a recovery program. Many find this beneficial as they transition back to independent living and learn how to deal with the triggers, stressors, cravings and other challenges that often arise after residential treatment.
