Home » Orange County Recovery Center

When you need addiction treatment, you want to find the best option for yourself or a loved one. Indeed, finding the right place is vital to success in recovery. Pacific Sands Orange County Recovery Center offers a safe and welcoming place for you to start your recovery journey.

Our programs and services are client-centered. In other words, we treat you like a person and not a number. In addition, we build connections among peers and staff in our recovery center. At Pacific Sands, you become a part of a community that will support you throughout your recovery.

Programs Offered at Our Orange County Recovery Center

Our Orange County recovery center offers several levels of care and programming. As a client-centered recovery center, we are here to meet you where you are in your recovery. Thus, we will support you from the first steps during detox through continuing care in outpatient therapy.

Our client-centered programs include:


Detox is the first step in recovery. During detox, your body and mind will adjust to no longer having drugs or alcohol. As a result, you might have uncomfortable or painful withdrawal symptoms. In extreme cases, these symptoms can even be life-threatening.

Therefore, our medical detox team will be with you 24/7 to manage withdrawal symptoms without complications. We will help you deal with both physical and psychological symptoms that occur during detox. After that, you will be ready to dive into the root causes of your addiction.

Residential Addiction Treatment

Residential addiction treatment at our Orange County recovery center immerses you in your treatment. That is to say, you will live in our center while going through your program. During resident treatment, you are free from outside distractions to focus solely on yourself and your recovery.

Residential addiction treatment is best if you need time to make changes in your life without the risk of relapse from triggers in everyday life. Most clients remain in our residential program for 90 to 120 days for the best results.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are best for those who need treatment with some freedom to fulfill work, school, or family duties. In addition, IOP is great if you’ve completed residential treatment and have a secure place to live during treatment.

IOP at Pacific Sands lasts about 90 days. You will attend sessions a few times a week for a few hours at a time. In this way, you still get intensive treatment with peer and clinical support. However, you can fit treatment around your schedule.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication assisted treatment (MAT) combines behavioral therapy with FDA-approved medications. You might first begin MAT during detox to help with withdrawal symptoms. After that, you might continue MAT, depending on your needs.

Alcohol and opioid addictions often result in the most challenging withdrawal symptoms. Therefore, MAT is usually best for these types of addictions. Moreover, you can reduce the risk of relapse and accidental overdose with MAT. 

12-Step Programming

A pillar of our recovery center is 12-Step programming. Throughout our various levels of care, we will use the principles of 12-Step recovery. As a result, you will be well-versed in 12-Step recovery upon leaving our program.

In short, we want to ensure you have the tools needed for lifelong recovery. By starting 12-Step programming with us, you can become acquainted with peer support groups. These support groups are accessible and free of charge with proven records of success. While we focus on 12-Step recovery, we want to encourage you to pursue any type of peer recovery program that will work for you.

Addiction Therapy

Addiction therapy is available during our residential and IOP programs. Therapy is effective at dealing with the underlying issues that cause addiction. For example, you might have anxiety during social situations and abuse alcohol to feel comfortable. Therefore, you can learn to manage your anxiety without alcohol to solve the underlying cause of alcohol addiction.

We provide both individual and group therapy. Some people feel comfortable sharing in a group setting, whereas others might be more reserved. However, many clients find a combination of both settings to be most effective.

Orange County Drug Abuse and Addiction Statistics

Orange County drug abuse and addiction statistics highlight the current issues occurring in Southern California. Throughout most states in the country, addiction rates rose due to stressors related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, Orange County also saw a rise in these statistics.

The California Department of Public Health shares the following statistics on drug abuse and addiction in Orange County:

  • 503 opioid-related deaths occurred in 2020
  • Overdose deaths increased by 100% from 2018 to 2020
  • 1181 emergency department visits were due to opioid-related overdoses in 2020
  • In 2020, 269 hospitalizations were due to opioid-related overdoses

While California and other states are focused on opioid-related addictions, nearly every type of addiction rose in 2020. In addition, not everyone who needs treatment is dealing with severe issues related to substance abuse. You might have found that after lockdowns, you struggled to quit the excess drinking you used to cope with the stress. On the other hand, you might have been addicted for years and want to make a positive change.

Regardless of where you are in your addiction, we are here to help. Our Orange County recovery center is a great place to get your life back on track.

What to Look for in an Orange County Recovery Center

No matter where you are in your addiction and your recovery, our Orange County recovery center can help you. Still, you want to look for certain aspects to ensure you are getting the treatment you need.

Below are some of the things to look for in an Orange County recovery center:

  • Accreditation from places like the Joint Commission (JACHO) shows that the facility meets or exceeds standards set by a trusted third-party organization. Most importantly, accreditation assures that the program offers the services they claim.
  • Varying levels of care allow you to step down in services as you progress through treatment. Recovery is a lifelong process, and you want to ease into the process for the best outcomes.
  • Dual diagnosis treatment means that the center can help you with underlying mental health disorders. As a result, you can deal with your addiction at the source.
  • A safe and comfortable environment gives you a healthy place to build new habits and heal from the damage of addiction. In addition, the recovery center should foster a sense of community among staff and peers in recovery.
  • Affordable payment options for you or your loved one can help overcome a common barrier to treatment. These options can include insurance coverage, payment plans, and low-cost alternatives for treatment.

Above all, you want to find the right treatment program for your needs. After all, this will provide the best results to treat your addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorders.
