Addiction Treatment Centers Orange County

It is a fact that people who are suffering from substance abuse disorder need to get treatment from reputable treatment facilities like us at Dana Point Rehab Campus which is one of the leading addiction treatment centers in Orange County. Addiction is a chronic disease which means just like any other medical conditions, those who are “sick” needs assistance from treatment professionals. Unfortunately, only a small fraction of substance abusers receive treatment from addiction rehab centers according to the records of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

One of the possible reasons why drug-addicted individuals refuse treatment could be the following myths about addiction treatment centers in Orange County and other parts of the U.S.:

Myth 1: Drug addiction can be won by sheer willpower

Substance use disorder is not a matter of will. It is not easy for drug-addicted individuals to readily give up their addiction not because they lack willpower but because their addiction caused changes in their brain which make quitting practically impossible without professional help. Can you treat your other physical diseases with sheer willpower and self-control? Of course not. The same rule applies to addiction since it is also a chronic disease; thus, can only be addressed by proper treatment.

Myth 2: Drug-addicted individuals can quit cold turkey without any problem

Quitting cold turkey means the substance abuser stopped using drugs suddenly and completely. While there are some cases wherein drug-addicted individuals successfully detoxed using cold turkey method, they had to go through painful withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms of withdrawal especially in alcohol and opioid addiction are dangerous and can be life-threatening, which is why the detoxification process should be carried out inside a rehab or detox facility with medical supervision.

Myth 3: There is one addiction treatment that addresses all types of addiction

There are addiction centers that claim to have a single fool-proof treatment technique that can address all kinds of addiction, but this is untrue. Every case of addiction is unique because the condition of drug-addicted individuals is never the same. This means that the treatment should match the specific recovery needs of the substance abuser for it to be effective. Moreover, it is important to note that effective treatment requires a combination of different approaches that will address the multiple needs of the person.

Myth 4: There is no effective addiction treatment

This myth may have stemmed from the high relapse rate among drug-addicted individuals who previously sought treatment. What the proponents of this myth may have forgotten is that addiction has a chronic nature, which means the likelihood of recurrence is high. Studies have shown that addiction treatment effectively helps people quit their addiction and become productive citizens again, but it requires a lot of patience, determination, and support to achieve long-term sobriety.
