What Our Los Angeles Rehab Alumni Are Saying

I gained so much insight and healing from their holistic approach to recovery. I even got EMDR therapy as a part of my treatment (would personally recommend this modality for trauma and PTSD). From the top down, the staff are a lovely bunch of people. I won't name them here, but they know who they are 🙂

Patrick YatesAlumni

I was very impressed with The Heights and their amazing clinical team. Their program is truly holistic and client centered. The environment in Santa Monica felt very warm. Samantha and Susie made me feel very welcomed. I highly recommend their outpatient program.

Remy OlivierAlumni

When I went on a tour I could immediately tell that amazing things were happening within those walls. I would definitely recommend sending a loved one who is going through struggles to Heights Treatment in LA.

Jay MortonAlumni

The Heights Treatment team is so helpful and knowledgeable. They worked closely with my family to help my sister when she was in need of treatment and struggling with her depression. They got her on the right medications and she has been doing well ever since.

The Big Picture of Substance Abuse in LA and California

Substance abuse in California and Los Angeles continues to be a critical issue, characterized by increasing rates of drug and alcohol overdoses. The California Overdose Surveillance Dashboard provides comprehensive data on overdose outcomes in the state, including deaths, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations, as well as opioid and other drug prescription data. Although the full-year 2022 data are not yet available, the preliminary data from 2022 and the final data for 2021 highlight the severity of the issue1​​.

In Los Angeles, the overdose crisis is particularly acute. According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, seven to eight people die every day from an overdose in the county, with approximately half of these overdoses caused by fentanyl. This alarming statistic underlines the urgent need for effective and accessible drug and alcohol rehabilitation services in the region​​.

These statistics underscore the essential need for comprehensive substance abuse treatment and prevention programs in both California and Los Angeles. Tackling the complexities of drug and alcohol addiction requires a multifaceted approach, including the availability of quality healthcare, robust support services, and targeted community-based interventions.

Frequently Asked Questions about The Heights Treatment Los Angeles

Should I Travel to Los Angeles for Addiction Treatment?

Choosing Los Angeles for addiction treatment could be beneficial due to its diverse and high-quality treatment options, experienced healthcare professionals, and supportive recovery community. The city’s varied environments can enhance your recovery experience. However, consider factors like cost, distance from your support network, and whether the local culture aligns with your needs. Deciding to seek treatment away from home can offer privacy and a fresh start but should be based on how well the destination matches your personal recovery goals.

What Happens at The End of Rehab?

What happens at the end of your stay at a drug rehab in Los Angeles (or anywhere else) depends on where you’re at in your recovery journey. It also depends on the assessment of your treatment team. For instance, if you’re finishing treatment at an inpatient facility, you could transition to outpatient treatment. If you’re finishing up with outpatient rehab, your clinician might refer you to support groups in the area. What happens at the end of your rehabilitation at The Heights Treatment Center can vary and may be customized to your needs.

What’s the Difference Between Residential and Outpatient Rehab?

The main difference between residential and outpatient treatment is the structure and intensity of care. During residential treatment, also known as inpatient care, patients remain at the treatment facility around the clock. Residential rehab is designed for patients with severe mental health disorders and/or substance use disorders who require 24/7 support.

During outpatient drug rehab, individuals can sleep in their own beds each night and attend treatment sessions at the facility. Typically, these patients may attend treatment for a few hours per day or per week, depending on the program. Outpatient treatment is designed for individuals with less severe addiction and/or mental health disorders. It is often a step-down level of care after completing an inpatient program.
