Substance Abuse in Los Banos, California

Los Banos is a city of about 40,000 people in the San Joaquin Valley in central California. It’s known to be a family-focused community that maintains its small-town feel even though it’s experienced continued growth over the last years. Unfortunately, Los Banos isn’t immune from substance abuse or crime. Los Banos has a higher crime rate than 84% of California’s other cities and towns. 

Additionally, Merced County, where Los Banos is located, is experiencing increases in both cirrhosis (liver disease) and drug-induced deaths. This is a disturbing trend, as national and California mortality rates in these two areas have remained stable overall. 

Addiction Treatment Services in Los Banos, California

Despite being a city that is family-oriented and one that has kept its small-town, close knit atmosphere, Los Banos, like most other American cities, experiences the problem of drug and alcohol addiction. That’s because addiction is a disease that doesn’t discriminate. It’s a disease that affects people from all walks of life, no matter what their backgrounds are. Fortunately, drug and alcohol addiction is a treatable disease. With the proper treatment and maintenance, recovery is possible. 

Treatment for addiction often has several steps, or levels of care. The first step is to rid the body of all substances. This is called detoxification, or detox. It’s recommended that people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol attend a detox center to detox safely from the substances they use. This recommendation is based on a couple of things. First, it’s difficult to detox on your own. Withdrawal symptoms will set in and they can be very uncomfortable. The discomfort can quickly lead to finding a solution that you know will make you feel better – drinking or using drugs again. 

The second reason that detox is recommended is for your safety. The withdrawal symptoms for some substances, especially alcohol, can be so severe that they lead to seizures, respiratory and cardiac distress, and even death. In a medically supervised detox facility, you will be monitored for safety and may be given medication to ease withdrawal symptoms. 

After detox, the next step is an addiction treatment program. Typically, there are two options, inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment. An inpatient program living at the treatment facility for a period of time, usually 30-90 days. During that time, you receive therapy (individual and group), addiction education, and you learn life and coping skills, 12-step practices, relapse prevention techniques, and more. Outpatient treatment offers much of the same, but it’s completed during a number of hours each day on-site and then you go home at night. If you’re not sure which type of program Is best for you, talk with an addiction treatment professional to discuss which level of care they suggest. 

Should I Consider Traveling for Treatment?

If it’s feasible for you, traveling to another city or state for addiction treatment is an option worth looking at. While there are some good reasons to attend treatment close to home, like having your friends and family close for visiting you or financial limitations, there are also good reasons to consider attending a rehab that is out of town. Some of those compelling reasons include: 

  • Physical distance – This is an advantage for some people because it takes them away from distractions and triggers and allows for a complete focus on recovery. 
  • Sense of renewal – Traveling for treatment provides a sense of starting over, which can aid recovery. 
  • Added privacy – Some people, especially those in high profile occupations, want to ensure their privacy and anonymity. 
  • Less likely to give up – Addiction treatment is hard. Being away from home makes it more likely that people will stay for the length of the program because going home isn’t as easy. 

Choosing the Right Treatment Center

Choosing the right addiction treatment center requires some thought and consideration. There are various types of treatment facilities and programs. Answering the following questions will help you make your decision: 

  • Has your therapist or doctor suggested the level of care you should look for? Outpatient or inpatient?
  • Do you need to attend detox before beginning outpatient or inpatient treatment? (This is essential for alcohol addiction, as the withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening.)
  • Will it be helpful to you to travel for rehab, or is it necessary for you to be close to home? 
  • Are you looking for specialized therapies or amenities like adventure therapy, Christian based approach, yoga, massage, and others?

You may want to consult with the treatment centers you are considering to ask about their programs. A medical professional or intake counselor will answer your questions about the different programs they offer, and after a consultation they may provide you with advice about which program will benefit you most in the long run.

We usually try to limit family contact during the detox process and let the clients take this time to themselves. That being said, we can update families on their loved ones’ progress during the detox stage. After detox, clients will have more opportunities to communicate and interact with their families.

Make note that we almost always solicit the family’s input prior to starting treatment with a new client – to help us customize his or her recovery plan. We see addiction recovery as a family-wide process, so their involvement is paramount.

We have a 7 to 10 day detox program. Medications are given on a taper system, and dosage is determined by a licensed physician. The length of detox is determined upon by appointment.

Medications that may be given include:

  • Methadone – Strictly used to detox heavy methadone use. The dose is slowly decreased until the client no longer needs the medication.
  • Hydroxyzine – Helps reduce anxiety symptoms.
  • Subutex – Used to reduce anxiety, agitation, muscle aches, sweating, runny nose, yawning and cramping.
  • Ambien – Short-term use to aid with sleep during detox.

We also encourage taking Epsom salt baths to help aid in muscle relaxation. Melatonin and valerian root may be given to help the client sleep.
