Once you decide that you want and need to stop using drugs and alcohol, your next step is to determine how and where to get sober. There are a lot of options in California when it comes to treatment. You may decide to get sober by attending peer support recovery groups, getting treatment at a rehab facility, or a combination of the two. If you choose to go to rehab, you’ll have choices about the type of program you attend, where you go, what components are included, and whether you attend inpatient or outpatient. Based on your health and substance use history, your treatment team may recommend that you attend a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), or an inpatient program. You’ll even have the choice of attending same-sex or coed rehab. At Laguna View Detox, we know that you have many options for treatment, and we’re here to help you make the choice that is best for you.
The Signs You Need to Go to Rehab
If you are asking yourself if you need to go to rehab, you probably have a problem with drugs and alcohol. Still, you may be wondering if your problem with drugs and alcohol is “bad enough” to go to rehab. To evaluate your drug and alcohol use, start by objectively assessing how it affects your life and the lives of those you love. Has your substance use caused problems for you at work or caused you to lose a job?
Next, look at the relationships in your life. Do many of them revolve around drugs and alcohol? Are your relationships suffering? What do your finances look like? How much money are you spending on drugs and alcohol? How is your using affecting your physical health? Finally, is your drug and alcohol use serving you? While drug and alcohol use can sometimes be social, it can also cross a line. If you feel like your using is taking away little parts of you and that all your decisions revolve around using, it’s time to go to rehab.
Benefits of Seeking Treatment at a Coed Rehab
Same-sex and coed rehab facilities both have unique advantages. The world we live in is coed, and attending a coed rehab will give you more experience dealing with the opposite sex in sobriety. This experience will come in a safe and supportive environment, which can be less stressful. Nearly all rehab facilities will maintain separate living areas for each sex, interacting in common areas and some groups. By attending groups with members of the opposite sex, you may hear things you had not previously considered.
Hearing a wide variety of perspectives can help you view the issues in your life and your addiction in a new way. No matter what type of rehab you select, it’s essential to keep your focus on the work to be done. Coed rehab is not about dating or finding your next partner; it’s about breaking free of alcohol and drugs.
