Substance Abuse in Santa Cruz, California

Santa Cruz, California is the largest city in the county of the same name. It is located along the central California coast and has a population of about 65,000 residents. Santa Cruz is known for its beautiful beaches and the famous amusement park, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, as well as its proximity to the Redwood National Park. It is also home to the University of California, Santa Cruz, making a popular and growing city. 

With a growing population in Santa Cruz, it isn’t surprising to also see a growing amount of substance abuse and addiction. Fortunately, you can find numerous drug and alcohol detox and rehabilitation facilities to help individuals get the treatment that they need.

Addiction Treatment Services in Santa Cruz, California

Drug and alcohol addiction is a horrible, but treatable disease that affects people of all backgrounds, as well as their families and friends. If you are struggling with a substance abuse problem, then you know that it is a condition that impacts every area of your life, from family relationships to work and school performance, and also financially and legally. However, with proper addiction treatment and a willingness to do the hard work, even those individuals who have struggled with addiction can learn a new way to live and thrive clean and sober. 

Even though Santa Cruz is experiencing increasing numbers of people with substance abuse issues, there is hope and healing that can be found in addiction treatment services there. The first step of recovery for most people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol is detoxification (detox). These are typically short programs, depending on the substances used, in which individuals are safely detoxed from drugs and alcohol. Medically supervised detox is the safest way to remove substances from your body. Once you are physically dependent on a drug or alcohol, you will begin to have withdrawal symptoms when you stop using it. Some withdrawal symptoms, like those from alcohol withdrawal, can cause life-threatening complications. This is why it’s dangerous to try to stop drinking or using drugs cold turkey. In a detox facility, you will be monitored and may be given medication to help with your comfort during the withdrawal process, making it much safer and more comfortable than trying to do it on your own.

Following detox, most people attend inpatient or outpatient rehab. Inpatient, or residential, treatment involves staying at a rehab 24/7 for a period of time, typically 30-90 days. With outpatient treatment, you don’t live at the facility, but instead attend treatment several days a week for several weeks. It’s important to talk with addiction treatment specialists to discuss which option is right for you.

Should I Consider Traveling for Treatment?

For some, instead of attending an addiction treatment facility that is close to home, attending rehab in a different city or state is more effective. There are some advantages to entering an addiction treatment program in another location, and it’s always a solid idea to understand all of your treatment options. When attending an out-of-town rehab center, you may experience some of the following: 

  • Fewer triggers, distractions, and negative influences – Putting distance between you and your old life means that you will not have to worry about daily distractions, negative people or situations, or harmful triggers that make you want to drink or use drugs. 
  • More options for treatment – If you are looking for a specific type of drug and alcohol rehab like one that is gender-specific or religious, or one that specializes in co-occurring disorders, it’s often helpful to expand you search to find the best fit. 
  • Increased anonymity and privacy – There are some people who travel for addiction treatment because they do not want to be recognized while in treatment. While all treatment centers provide privacy, this may be a consideration for people in certain professions like doctors, ministers, political figures, and celebrities. 

Choosing the Right Treatment Center

The success of your recovery starts with choosing a drug or alcohol treatment center that best fits your needs. Each person is unique and so is each person’s relationship with drugs and alcohol. The treatment program that works for one person may not look the same as what works for another. Whether the type of program you need is in another city or state, or it’s close to home, your decision should always be based on your specific situation. 

While it requires a medical professional to evaluate your medical and therapeutic needs, you can still narrow down your search for a treatment center by your preferred location and type (for example, some rehabs are faith-based, some use the 12 steps and some don’t, some are gender-specific). Whether you choose inpatient or outpatient and deciding if you need a detox program first should be aspects that you talk with a medical professional about before making a final decision.

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.
