Our Treatment Philosophy

Accountability without Judgment

At West Coast Rehab our Addiction Treatment Philosophy focuses on treating each person individually because we believe that every individual has unique challenges and specific needs. We are a dual diagnosis program with a full continuum of care options. We utilize a client centered philosophy that offers a welcoming, non-­judgmental, supportive, and sincere atmosphere.

Every treatment plan is highly individualized every step of the way, starting with admissions through our multi-­phased dual diagnosis treatment that continues through our after-care support. Each layer of treatment has the individual in mind. By doing this we believe that we give our clients and their families the utmost respect, consideration, and compassion.

We begin your journey at West Coast Rehab with a clinical assessment and psychological testing by our professional staff. This is when your treatment plan begins and the precise level of care for you is determined. West Coast Rehab offers a dedicated team of addiction professionals with decades of combined experience in the field of addiction psychology.

Individualized Treatment

Our individualized addiction treatment philosophy incorporates the most effective and proven modalities in the field. The variety of treatment options coupled with the manageable size of our addiction treatment program guarantees that each individual gets exactly what they need.

Treating every individual based on their unique needs requires understanding their every need, what the triggers are, what the personal challenges are, and helping them to learn to identify red flags. This is the reason we begin with a psychological evaluation, psychological testing and a complete bio psycho social immediately after detox. The journey to wellness begins with action and you have a willing partner in West Coast Rehab.

It is nearly impossible to battle addiction alone and quite frankly there is no reason to even consider it. Long term success is only a phone call away. Research has proven time and time again that chemical dependency alters the brain even long after a person stops using drugs or abusing alcohol. The defining characteristic of addiction is that the changes in the brain disable any impulse control.

Our Addiction Treatment Philosophy:

At West Coast Rehab, we believe that it is imperative for every individual who suffers from addiction to drugs or alcohol to seek professional help in overcoming addiction at the first possible stage. This positions each individual to truly be able to manage their addiction.  Our philosophy focuses on treating the individual—mind, body and spirit—not just the physical disease. We believe that this approach to the addiction treatment process is the best way to truly overcome the addiction. We rely on the most up ­to ­date medical, scientific, evidenced based, psychological and spiritual approaches available to ensure that our clients receive the most relevant information and best practices. We focus on helping our clients make changes in their careers and education. We will even assist by helping clients to develop new interests, hobbies, and ways to approach nutrition. We treat and empower our clients to restore balance to their lives by receiving treatment that will last a lifetime.

Individuals progress through drug addiction treatment at various rates, so there is no predetermined length of treatment. However, research has shown unequivocally that good outcomes are contingent on adequate treatment length. To support our “whole person” approach to addiction treatment we believe that a successful rehabilitation model should be relevant, rational, relational, and responsible. Below we outline how this is used in our addiction treatment model.

Relevant Addiction Treatment Programs:

We understand that no single addiction treatment plan is going to be appropriate for all clients; we firmly believe that there is no “one size fits all” solution to drug and alcohol addiction. Every client is different so addiction treatment needs to be different as well. The addiction treatment needs to be relevant for every client. At West Coast Rehab, we devise individual, goal oriented rehabilitation plans that are relevant to the needs of the specific client we are treating.
Unchecked emotions are the downfall of many addicts attempting to maintain long ­term sobriety. Through our program that seeks to expand a client’s self knowledge, and in tandem teach mindfulness techniques, we help our clients build the important life skill of maintaining a rational mind. Allowing our emotions to run our lives is a recipe for disaster. Making decisions while highly emotional and irrational leads to making very poor decisions and often continues the cycle of addiction.  Learning the skills you need to make all important life decisions with a rational, calm, fully functioning mindset is the first step toward building the life that you deserve. Our therapists are trained in Mindfulness techniques, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Through 2 sessions per week or more of individual therapy and at least 16 group therapies per week we rapidly train our clients with the skill set that they need to increase the chance of sustained long term sobriety.

Relational Addiction Treatment Programs:

Our program believes in the healing power of collaborative and empowering relationships. We know that “therapeutic relationship” is one of the most important components of any successful addiction treatment plan. Our practice of acceptance, respect, accountability, responsibility, and compassion toward all, instills trust in our clients and fosters the level of openness and honesty they require to achieve recovery. We understand that without accountability, responsibility, trust, and honesty, overcoming any addiction is nearly impossible. Positive relationships are a main contributor to successful addiction treatment and recovery. Our goal is to build a positive relationship from the time our clients begin our program and continue to maintain this relationship throughout their recovery journey. Our program staff are first and foremost accountable for creating an environment in which the clients feel heard and supported in their recovery.

Responsible Addiction Treatment Programs:

At West Coast Rehab, we want our clients to feel heard and supported, and we take our responsibility and commitment to each client seriously. For this reason, our clients can always depend on the willingness of our staff to speak the truth, challenge addictive attitudes, and facilitate their recovery, even when what we have to say is hard for our clients to hear. We have a deep responsibility to every client that is in our care. We will never do anything to lose our clients’ trust or belief in us. Minimizing issues, or candy coating real issues that need to be dealt with can be harmful rather than helpful.

We also continually encourage and empower clients to take full responsibility for their own attitudes, behaviors and choices, thereby actively participating in their own recovery. We believe that this ownership goes a long way in the recovery process and clients who play a more active role in their recovery are much more likely to be successful in their recovery over the long term.

Why West Coast Rehab?

Our standard of care and treatment is extraordinary, because we leave no stone unturned. Our addiction treatment model incorporates several powerful philosophies that we have combined to create a unique, all encompassing, multidisciplinary, multimodal, and multifaceted approach to recovery that produces a program capable of meeting every client’s unique needs and tailors a program to deal with every client’s unique path to long term sobriety.
