Patients with more complex recovery issues may require more time to address: Special issues and concerns Mental health complications Relapse prevention Sober living skills Programs and services offered at our Los Angeles center include day treatment, intensive outpatient programming and post-treatment groups and support. Day Treatment Our day treatment level of care at the Betty Ford Center is sometimes referred to as partial hospitalization because it’s the most intensive outpatient rehab option. Day treatment is an especially effective drug rehab option if you: Have already made multiple attempts at addiction treatment Have experienced chronic relapse Have an opioid use disorder Struggle with a co-occurring mental health issue such as anxiety or depression Our day treatment program may also be recommended as a “step down” level of care following inpatient addiction treatment, providing guidance and structure as you integrate back into your home and work life. Day treatment programming takes place five days a week for a total of 20 to 26 hours per week. Patients work closely with their counselor to determine the sessions they will participate in each week. Core treatment activities include: Educational workshops Process-focused group therapy Individual and family therapy Mindfulness and spirituality practices (meditation, yoga, dimorphic breathing) Specialized group sessions are available for patients who are diagnosed with an opioid use disorder. Our Los Angeles center also offers specialized programming options for patients who identify as LGBTQ. Intensive Outpatient Program The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Betty Ford Center’s Los Angeles facility varies in frequency based on clinical recommendations. Programming is similar to day treatment, but sessions are held less frequently and for fewer hours per day. Our intensive outpatient program is an ideal option as a follow-up to either inpatient addiction treatment or a day treatment program. This level of care can be especially effective for patients who have a stable home life as well as for those who are experiencing alcohol/drug addiction treatment for the first time. Sessions meet either weekday afternoons or weeknights at the following times: IOP for Adults Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday – From noon to 3 p.m. or 6 to 9 p.m. IOP for Teens and Young Adults Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday – From noon to 3 p.m. Recovery Management As you begin your recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction, you’ll find that it takes patience, practice and daily commitment to regain and maintain your health. That’s because you’re essentially learning a new way of living as you replace your former drug-using lifestyle with healthy new routines and behaviors. You are learning to manage a chronic disease. Many people who are new to recovery benefit from participating in ongoing counseling and other types of continuing care. At the Betty Ford Center’s Los Angeles treatment center, two counselor-facilitated continuing care groups are offered each week: Adult Continuing Care Group Monday from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday from 6 to 7 p.m. These groups provide a valuable opportunity for you to: Process any immediate recovery concerns Learn about relapse prevention strategies Identify self-defeating behaviors that are causing undue stress Address other challenges and concerns In addition, experts across the greater Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation provide a number of online, in-person and digital recovery support resources and services to help you strengthen your sober lifestyle and build healthy new routines and connections. These resources include mobile apps, special-focus Twelve Step retreats, online recovery communities, speaker events and other activities as well as phone-based coaching and accountability services.
