If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, you can find help. Too often, people try to go cold turkey or get a fast, cheap version of addiction treatment, which sets them up for relapse and feelings of failure.

But at Total RMH, we believe that any setback or failure is an opportunity for learning. Knowing what treatment hasn’t worked in the past will give insight into what you should choose moving forward. 

What are the Levels of Rehab Care?

All the types of drug treatment available are designed to function together in a step-down approach.

The step-down approach begins with residential or inpatient treatment, where you have 24-hour supervision and live at the rehab center. Once you regain some of your independence and can be trusted to live in a safe environment on your own, you can move into an outpatient program.

Even within an outpatient program, your level of care is slowly reduced as you improve. So while you might start out with over 20 hours per week of outpatient care, you can drop that within a few weeks or months to around 15 hours per week, then 8 hours per week, and then 1 hour per week.


Suppose your case is not as severe or you have a supportive environment where you can be trusted to maintain your independence. In that case, the next type of drug treatment might include outpatient care, where you attend a rehab center for your daily program but go home at the end of the day.


No matter which types of addiction treatment programs you choose, inpatient or outpatient, your rehab will start with detox. Detoxification is an essential component of all types of drug treatment. Detox helps you rid your body of any remaining compounds and start fresh.

  • If you choose outpatient types of addiction treatment, you might complete your detox over the course of one week or a few days at a rehab center or in a hospital.
  • If you choose inpatient types of addiction treatment, you will likely start your detox at the rehab center before transitioning into your daily schedule.

What Types of Addiction Treatment are Available in Los Angeles?

There are many types of addiction treatment available in Los Angeles.

For example, suppose you are struggling with addiction to alcohol or opioids. In that case, you can start a medication-assisted detox that uses FDA-approved medications and medical supervision to help you manage your cravings.

Your daily schedule will include individual and group therapy. This can extend to individual psychotherapy, trauma-centered therapy, and group therapy, where you get to meet with counselors and therapists to discuss what in your past might have contributed to your addiction, how you can identify triggers in your environment, and what to do when that happens.

Addiction does terrible things to your physical health. It can change the way your brain communicates with the rest of your body, leading to mental health disorders. Addiction treatments like nutrition management, neurofeedback, and brain optimization are designed to help reset your brain and improve your physical health so that you can take steps to improve your mental health.
