What Is Addiction Treatment?

A Vision for Recovery

Addiction Treatment

Safe Harbor Treatment Centers began as a vision, a dream that our founder, Velvet Mangan, longed to bring to reality. She poured her heart into creating a space where clients could come from anywhere in the world to recover from their addictions.

At our substance abuse treatment center in Orange County, we understand that past experiences involving addiction can leave a person scared and vulnerable. Because of this, it is imperative that their environment be loving, gentle and supportive. Love and safety are key components in a person’s willingness to look deep within and begin to identify underlying causes of their pain. Recovery is a scary process for most and it cannot be done alone. Individuals require a community where they are accepted and understood in order to access the honesty required to heal.

Each person who walks through the doors of Safe Harbor will be honored and commended for accessing the courage to change their life. Individuals will begin to feel unconditional love, learn self-acceptance, enjoy unity and practice being of service. Our alcohol and drug rehab in Orange County offers our clients a place to mature in their recovery. Here they will learn fundamental life skills, including seeking and maintaining employment or education. The goal is for each person to experience real-life scenarios, in conjunction with working a 12-Step program, in a safe and supportive environment. We utilize 12-Step philosophies and integrated therapeutic modalities to assist people on their journey to accepting and participating in a responsible, healthy lifestyle. Our deliberate phase system organically guides clients to accomplishments and helps them achieve a destination of internal happiness, independence, and freedom.

What to Expect in an Orange County, CA
Drug Rehab

What Is Evidence Based Treatment For Addiction?

Assessment for Appropriate Level of Care

Drug rehab can take place through an inpatient or outpatient program. Inpatient treatment involves living at a residential center while undergoing rehab. Many  programs offer housing  during rehab. Outpatient rehab involves living at home and attending programming during the day. There are different levels of inpatient and outpatient treatment. The level at which you enter will be determined by a range of assessments that are taken during the intake and detox process.

Participation in Holistic Therapies

Once detox is complete, treatment begins. A high-quality treatment program will take a holistic approach to recovery that involves both traditional and complementary therapies. Traditional therapies are generally “talk” therapies and include cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy, group therapy, and psychoeducational classes, which are part informational and part psychotherapy. Complementary therapies are experiential in nature and include art therapy, restorative yoga and mindfulness meditation. This combination of therapies promotes whole-person healing of body, mind and spirit. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, holistic treatment offers the best possible outcomes.

Changing Negative Behavior Patterns

Through therapy, participants in treatment change dysfunctional thought and behavior patterns and develop new, healthier habits that support a life in recovery. They develop essential coping skills to address relapse triggers like stress and negative emotions, and they address the complex issues that underlie the addiction and that stem from it. They search for purpose and meaning in life and learn how to have fun and relax without needing drugs or alcohol to do it. Treatment helps individuals restore their lives on all fronts, from relationships and finances to physical and mental health.

Aftercare Plan Development

Once drug treatment in Orange County, CA is complete, an aftercare plan is set in place to help people navigate the early months of solo recovery. The aftercare plan will include ongoing therapy, participation in a support group and other components based on individual need, such as vocational training or educational assistance.

Financial Considerations for Drug Rehab

Treatment is expensive, and many people don’t have the financial resources to pay for it. However, high quality treatment programs will typically work with people to help identify sources for funding, including:


Private insurance companies may or may not cover some or all of the cost of rehab, but plans bought on the Insurance Marketplace through the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) are required to cover inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment services.


Some treatment centers offer financing, which means you pay a certain amount each month until the cost of treatment is paid off, usually with interest.


Many treatment programs offer scholarships for those who can’t afford treatment and who qualify based on income and other factors.


Some treatment centers offer financing, which means you pay a certain amount each month until the cost of treatment is paid off, usually with interest.


For those who have good credit, a personal or home equity loan is one option for paying for treatment. A low-interest healthcare loan through a company like Prosper Healthcare Lending or Capital One Healthcare may also be an option.

Credit Card

Putting the cost of treatment on a low-interest or no-interest credit card enables you to pay for treatment over time.

Additional resources

The Department of Health and Human Services in each state may provide assistance to help individuals afford treatment, such as grants, scholarships and other resources. Some local nonprofit organizations may also be able to help.
