Levels of Care
At San Diego Addiction Treatment Center, we provide adult males struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders an individualized treatment plan of research-based therapy based on their unique substance abuse circumstances and recovery objectives.
Following comprehensive medical and psychological assessments, clients are assigned an appropriate level of care based on their addiction severity, presence of co-occurring psychological issues, and overall physical health.
San Diego Addiction Treatment Center offers these levels of care for substance addiction treatment:
– Medical Detox – 24/7 medical management in safe detox environment
– Residential Treatment (RT) – long-term structured care in non-hospital setting
– Partial Hospitalization (PHP) – structured care, step-down, or inpatient
Safe Detox for Loved Ones
If you or your loved one arrives at our facility and it’s determined that medical detox is necessary, we’ll ensure you go directly into our medically-monitored detox services. Detox beds are located in a quiet area of the residence with client access to nursing station and medical team. Clients undergo Medical Detox at our facility with 24/7 support and monitoring.
Clients enter Residential Treatment once they are medically cleared and withdrawal symptoms have stabilized. Our RT program features 24/7 monitoring and staff ensures clients are safe, actively involved in their treatment program, and attending group and individual therapy sessions. Co-occurring behavioral and mental health issues are addressed, as appropriate.
Our PHP program allows clients to integrate real-life experience into their early recovery and aftercare. Clients begin to network with local support groups, participate in sober recreation outings, and reintegrate into community, work, and life. While participating in our PHP, clients attend a minimum of 5 days per week of highly structured treatment in blocks of 6-8 hours. Their treatment sessions consist of individual therapy, structured activities, and group sessions.
While in treatment, clients develop an aftercare plan, sober living skills, and coping strategies for reintegrating into home life, work, and the community. A part of aftercare planning includes collaborating with our therapists on continued care recommendations for follow-up with psychiatrists, therapists, or physicians. Our goal is for clients to leave treatment with a detailed aftercare plan listing contacts and resources needed to continue their recovery journey. Aftercare may also include treatment follow-up calls from San Diego staff to clients, and inclusion in our AAC Alumni program.
To assist in long-term recovery following treatment, we encourage the client to practice the behaviors and recovery skills developed in our therapy and groups. To help in aftercare, we recommend involvement with SDATC peers, involvement with the AAC Alumni network, and participation in recovery groups such as 12-Step meetings.
