Things We Treat
At Apex Recovery San Diego, our seven-day detox programs are the core of our addiction treatment and recovery services. Among our addiction recovery programs, we provide on-site, medically supervised detox that takes the fear and anxiety out of the process, paving the way for further treatment, which may include residential, extended care, and/or outpatient services.
Our addiction physician consultant is an expert at detoxing the human body. He is gentle, compassionate, and extremely safe when working with the clients who enter our program with detox needs ranging from alcohol, benzodiazepines, heroin, or other opiate drug use. Our detox staff is trained to help assist in the process and make it as comfortable for the client as possible.
We provide around-the-clock supervision, vital checks, and exertional, safe care while individuals detox with us. Such controlled conditions make for the best results. To support the process, we also have diets that are tailored to the body’s rapidly changing needs when undergoing this treatment. We provide each individual with the serene environment they require to detox fully. Learn more about Apex Recovery San Diego.
Because every patient has unique needs, we offer treatment options that are the right fit for each individual. In fact, we’re one of the only rehabilitation centers in the country to offer three distinct medical approaches to treating addiction:
- Internal and addiction medicine – This method focuses on discomfort remedies and effective management of preventive health concerns to help the body recover from specific drugs and alcohol.
- Psychiatry – Our team provides psychiatric assessment and medication consultation to initiate changes necessary to aid in overcoming dual-diagnosis disorders such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, and other mental illnesses.
- Integrative and holistic – This method is designed to allow clients to tap into their bodies’ innate healing abilities and make use of complementary therapies.
Trauma RecoveryThere is a strong correlation proven by research indicating a relationship between the experience of trauma and the development of an addiction. While not every person that experiences trauma later develops an addiction, trauma is considered a major underlying issue leading to addictive behavior. The relationship is simple; addictions can help reduce the overwhelming sensations resulting from trauma in an attempt to find safety and control through relaxation from fear and relief from unpleasant and uncomfortable memories and emotional experiences. Using a trauma-informed treatment approach, the clinically trained staff at Apex Recovery San Diego understand the impact of trauma and the resulting behaviors. With empathy and responses that are free from judgment, the Apex Recovery staff understands the ramifications of trauma and can help you implement the necessary tools to improve your well-being and deliver truly effective holistic care. We will help you rebuild a sense of control and develop personal empowerment in a setting that promotes and emphasizes psychological, physical, and emotional safety.
Dually diagnosed clients are those that are living with co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders. More often than not, people struggling with an addiction have some type of co-occurring mental health diagnosis. Not only does Apex Recovery’s addiction treatment team specialize in all aspects of drug and alcohol dependency, but we also treat co-occurring disorders.
Apex Recovery San Diego feels that thorough assessment and treatment of co-occurring disorders is a critical piece in maximizing the chance of success in treatment. Dual diagnosis is a relatively new approach that was developed in the 21st century. Before this landmark, dually diagnosed patients were treated separately for their addiction and mental health problems, which means they practically never got what they truly needed. Fortunately, dual diagnosis therapy now brings these patients the best of both worlds—treatment for their mental disorders and substance abuse. Both of these are seen as part of a continuum rather than as two strictly different problems.
There are so many types of mental health disorders, and the relationship between addiction and mental health disorders is multifaceted and complex. What further complicates the matter is that individuals with a dual diagnosis are known to often be in denial, because their mental condition causes a distorted perception. The symptoms of their disorder may be so uncomfortable and overwhelming that alcohol and substances may seem like the only way to manage them.
