The abuse of illicit drugs is, and will continue to be, a pressing problem in the United States. With that in mind, Elevate Addiction Services is here to do our part to help people overcome drug addiction. With two spacious locations in Northern California, Elevate offers flexible 90-day drug treatment programs along with numerous aftercare services.
Elevate’s inpatient 90-day drug treatment programs come in three phases:
- Physical Rejuvenation
- Emotional Healing
Aftercare is actually our 4th and final phase, and it’s an ongoing, indefinite process.
Each of the first three phases of care takes approximately 30 days. However, the programs are flexible and based on results and progress, not a fixed amount of time. Our goal is to have each client completely substance-free (meaning off detox medication too) and mentally prepared for long-term sobriety once they finish our inpatient program.

Heroin Addiction Treatment Services
Heroin use and associated deaths have skyrocketed in recent years. Many users started out taking legally prescribed opioids and then turning to heroin when their prescription ran out. More than 8,200 deaths in the U.S. were attributed to heroin overdose in 2013. The death count shot up to more than 10,500 in 2014. These figures represent roughly a 300 percent increase over the number of such deaths just 10 years ago.
If you or someone you know is using heroin on a regular basis, it’s time to get help now. The next dose could be fatal.
Treatment for Addiction to Stimulants
When it comes to illegal stimulants, cocaine, methamphetamine and MDMA (ecstasy or Molly) are the biggest threats. You can include crack cocaine in this classification as well. Cocaine-related deaths topped 5,000 in the U.S. in 2014, the highest it has been since 2007. Methamphetamine- and MDMA-related deaths aren’t nearly as frequent, but these two substances are known to trigger symptoms that could lead to death, and long-term use of either will noticeably affect a person’s physical appearance and overall health.
Treatment for Addiction to Illicit Opiates
Although heroin is the most common type of opiate, there are several other forms of this class of drugs that people use illegally. Opium is the most common other form, but drugs such as morphine, fentanyl and hydromorphone (which are available via prescription) can all be obtained and abused illegally. Opiates are naturally occurring drugs that are extracted from the papaver somniferum species of plants (also known as the opium poppy). If you or a loved one is using one of these illicit, highly addictive substances, call us for help today.
