Frequently Asked Questions

Recognizing readiness for change can be tricky, as many individuals struggling with addiction may be in a state of denial. Signs that someone might be ready for help include vocalizing concerns about their addiction, taking steps to minimize substance use, or showing interest in rehab or treatment options.

Home detox can be extremely risky and is generally not recommended. Withdrawal symptoms can vary in severity and may require medical supervision. At Capistrano Beach Recovery, we offer medically supervised detox programs to ensure a safe and effective detox process.

Treatment programs can vary greatly depending on individual needs. Common types include:

  • Inpatient rehab: Residential treatment, where the individual lives at the facility while receiving care.
  • Outpatient rehab: Treatment is provided while the individual continues to live at home.
  • 12-Step Programs: Peer-led, community-based recovery programs.

Each program has its advantages and drawbacks, so it’s important to consult professionals for the most appropriate choice.

Support during rehab is crucial for the recovery process. Ways you can help include:

  • Regularly visiting, if permitted
  • Providing emotional support through calls and messages
  • Participating in family support programs or therapy
  • Respecting the guidelines and rules set by the rehab facility

Remember, your role is vital but the individual must also actively participate in their own recovery journey.
