Residents in Lake Tahoe, Santa Cruz, and anywhere in the US will find the peaceful surroundings on both campuses perfectly complement our in-patient drug treatment programs.

Just 115 miles north of Sacramento, our Santa Cruz facility boosts 50 inpatient beds and 24 transitional housing spaces for clients. People who prefer a more intimate setting may be more comfortable with our drug treatment programs in Lake Tahoe, where our campus is smaller, and there is greater opportunity to spend more one-on-one time with counselors and peers.

Sacramento is divided into 123 neighborhoods, some with more than 40,000 residents and others with just a few hundred people. Every neighborhood has its own cultural and social rhythm, but each shares a common burden – drug and alcohol addiction issues. Substance abuse affects families across all socioeconomic, cultural and ethnic boundaries. The need for alcohol rehabilitation centers in Sacramento continues to grow, with an influx of San Francisco Bay area transplants.

The CDC, local law enforcement and government leaders continue to monitor drug-related crimes and fatalities. As in many areas of the country, California tracks overdose deaths by county, city, and even zip code.

In 2017, more than 5000 people living in California, including Sacramento residents, died from fatal overdoses, opioid addiction. Fentanyl accounted for roughly 20 percent of all overdose fatalities. That is a 50% increase compared to 2016 fatalities. Although alcohol doesn't get as much press as strong narcotics, it is critical to connect local residents with an alcohol rehab center in Sacramento that can customize a treatment plan as soon as possible to reduce their health risks.

The Elevate Difference

A holistic, non-traditional focus on treating the disease, not just alleviating symptoms. Our goal is to restore the body, mind, and personhood of each individual to health and vitality. This means we carefully design each treatment plan based on an individual's needs and challenges.

To accomplish this, we focus on several separate but interwoven physical and emotional areas, including:

  • Nutritional support. Giving the brain and body systems the proper fuel and nourishment to fight illness is vital for success. Because a weak body is not capable of fighting off infection, making sound decisions and coping with the trauma of detoxification and recovery activities, our nutritionists plan meals, snacks and supplemental nourishment schedules to supply each individual with everything their body needs to build strong muscles, bones and tissues. As organs recover and cognition improves, dietary guidelines also evolve.
  • Ongoing support through all stages of the recovery process. Elevate staff recognize the importance of building and maintaining a healthy support network from enrollment in a drug or alcohol treatment center to after-care program participation and, in some cases, for the rest of one's life.
  • Non-12 step treatment using SMART Recovery. SMART Recovery is a four-pillar drug recovery program designed to empower recovering addicts. Each pillar includes evidence-based programming components that reinforce positive lifestyle changes. Participants learn how personal motivation and coping mechanism along with self-expression exercises allow them to achieve a balanced life beyond the treatment center.
  • Fitness for life. Along with nutritious food, our bodies need exercise to thrive. The Elevate experience includes adventure therapy, challenging hikes, indoor sports, and many other fitness training activities to strengthen their muscles, and their mind in preparation for life after detox and treatment.

The Elevate Addiction Services Promise

We understand that many people may begin their search for a lifeline with an online search for “inpatient drug rehab near me” or “outpatient drug treatment program in the Sacramento area.” But, finding outpatient drug rehab centers nearby may not be the only solution or even the best one for some people.

When someone trusts us with their life, we take that faith seriously, rather they find us through a court order, a referral from a doctor or family member or an online search. The Elevate recovery team understands that the most important decision a substance abuser makes is the decision to seek treatment with a center that has the facilities, expertise, and staff to help them complete their journey toward sobriety.

Although each of our programs is specifically designed for each client, inpatient drug treatment center protocol, detoxification treatment and outpatient alcohol treatment all share common standards and continuity of care.

Our promise of excellence includes:

  • Comprehensive intake: Admissions counselors assess overall health, underlying medical conditions, mental health status, personal treatment preferences, socioeconomic barriers, family dynamics and other factors that could impact inpatient drug rehabilitation centers' program and treatment choices.
  • Rediscovering one's personal value and self-worth: One of the common side effects of alcohol and drug abuse is a self-deprecating mindset. Clients with low self-esteem may participate in a number of therapeutic activities that allow them to rediscover themselves and grow into who they want to become.
  • Individualized treatment and complementary therapy recommendations: Methodologies differ or each client. Where Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness exercises may work best for one client, another may benefit more from family sessions and daily yoga classes to relieve stress and enhance self-awareness beyond the realm of drug misuse.
  • Aftercare Services: Returning to the “real world” after completing an inpatient alcohol treatment center program is exciting and terrifying. The Elevate promise of excellence includes a commitment to help clients transition away from a structured daily lifestyle to one that involves making wise decisions, returning to work, testing their coping skills and repairing broken relationships or creating new ones.

Counselors and fellow program graduates stand ready to help when someone feels threatened or unsure in a given situation. Aftercare services provide a network of support that isn't available anywhere else, certainly not from a 12-step drug addiction program.

Range of Customized Treatments

Foundational non 12 step rehab programs found in drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers near Sacramento generally offer customized solutions, including:

  • Detoxification Programs: Clients enrolled in a Lake Tahoe rehabilitation program for drug addicts typically undergo a medically supervised detox period designed to safely eliminate drugs and alcohol from the body, while managing risks. Unlike many traditional 12-step programs, we do not believe it is wise to use prescribed medications to replace addictive drugs or alcohol. The goal is to give patients' bodies the best chance possible for a chemical-free recovery – starting with the detox period.
  • Inpatient treatment options for alcoholism: Personalized treatment solutions usually start with an intervention and/or carefully supervised detox period before clients move into a 90-day recovery plan.
  • Inpatient rehabilitation for drug addicts: One of Elevate's primary service programs in our Lake Tahoe center, inpatient rehab treatment includes options for a variety of addictions, including opioids, alcohol, and cocaine.
  • Outpatient drug and alcohol recovery programs: Outpatient services usually appeal to people with jobs they cannot afford to lose, tight budgets and limited insurance coverage that doesn't cover a long-term stay. Both alcohol and drug addiction programs offer evidence-based treatment plans and strong aftercare support.

Non 12 Step Recovery Centers: Features & Programs

Because many people seeking holistic treatment for drug addiction, or holistic alcohol recovery plans, need dual diagnosis treatment, Elevate staff work closely with clients during program planning to ensure all medical and mental health conditions receive appropriate evaluation and treatment.

Part of holistic recovery center protocol includes teaching clients the value of self-appreciation and helping them use yoga, mindfulness activities, and adventure therapy to cope with triggers and stress instead of returning to their preferred drug of choice.

Experience has taught us that holistic alcohol rehabilitation centers that focus on the whole person, not just the addiction element, empower clients to proactively take control of their life – a life without bondage to harmful substances.

While the treatment plans may differ depending on which program a person chooses, the end goal is always the same: Sobriety and stability for people may still need help managing mental health conditions after they get off the drugs and alcohol.

Addiction Treatment Centers in Sacramento, like Elevate's holistic recovery center in Lake Tahoe, support recovering addicts with compassionate, evidence-based counseling methods, excellent nutritional training and an aftercare program designed for success after the 90-day inpatient program ends.

Specialized Addiction Treatment for Common Addictions

Unfortunately, until we implement policies that stem the flow of illicit drugs, discover better pain-management treatment options and educate the public before they decide to experiment with drugs and alcohol, more people in Sacramento, the state of California and across our nation will become addicted or die.

Recognizing drug addiction symptoms and knowing what Elevate treatments are available is a great place to start.

Recognizing Recovering Drug Addiction Symptoms & Recovering Alcoholic Symptoms

Relapse is a normal part of the journey toward sobriety. Some people can't stand the physical and emotional pain that comes with alcohol detox. While there isn't a "cure" for alcohol withdrawal symptoms, there are holistic solutions that help patients get through the process. Each treatment plan is customized for the individual and based on the length of addiction and the severity of the condition.

For those who successfully complete an alcohol rehab program, it is vital to recognize recovering addict symptoms to avoid relapse.

Symptoms include:

  • Visiting old friends and former watering holes
  • Defensiveness
  • Avoiding support teams
  • An increased desire to have just one drink

Alcohol Addiction Treatment

There are both physical and psychological components. An alcohol abuser gradually needs more alcohol to achieve the desired response, and as misuse turns into addiction, many people drink to avoid the negative signs and symptoms of alcoholism. Most exhibit symptoms similar to other drug addictions.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms treatment usually addresses physical alcohol addiction symptoms.

Symptoms of Severe Alcoholism

Confusion / Tremors / Nausea / Vomiting / Insomnia / Anxiety / Rapid Heart Rate / Irresponsibility

Heroine Addiction Treatment

Heroin Detox and Treatment start with cleansing the body, without crutch drugs or less harmful prescriptions.

Symptoms of Heroine Addiction

Track marks / Thievery / Lethargy / Constipation
