What Are the Facts on SUDs in
Thousand Oaks and Ventura County?

Most people are familiar with the terms addiction and non-addicted substance abuse. They describe two forms of drug and alcohol problems that were once separately defined by doctors and rehab specialists. Today, that situation has changed, and addiction and substance abuse now define the two potential aspects of all substance use disorders (SUDs). People with these disorders may:

  • Have symptoms of addiction, but no symptoms of substance abuse
  • Have symptoms of substance abuse, but no symptoms of addiction
  • Experience symptoms that point to intermingled substance abuse and addiction

How widespread are SUDs in Thousand Oaks and Ventura County? Federal figures show that the region is slightly below the statewide average for alcohol use disorder. That’s notable because this condition is America’s most recurrent form of substance abuse/addiction. 

In contrast, Thousand Oaks and Ventura County have a relatively high rate of cocaine use. The same holds true for the region’s rate of marijuana use. Regular and/or excessive cocaine intake can lead to the onset of stimulant use disorder. Heavy, repeated marijuana consumption can lead to the development of cannabis use disorder.

SUD Treatment Options in Thousand Oaks

How can our Thousand Oaks drug and alcohol rehab center help you recover from an SUD? All effective rehab facilities feature treatment plans that focus on things such as:

  • Acknowledging the difficulty of SUD recovery while providing realistic paths to treatment success
  • Viewing you as an individual throughout all phases of your recovery
  • Combining ease of access with high-quality, evidence-based treatments
  • Using behavioral psychotherapy as the foundation of SUD rehab
  • Checking for and treating any additional mental health issues that may be affecting you

Behavioral therapy has several important advantages for people affected by substance use disorders. First, you can use at least one form of it to recover from any kind of drug or alcohol problem. You can also go through therapy by yourself in individual sessions or together with a group of recovery peers. Therapy has the added crucial advantage of helping you reach multiple rehab objectives. These objectives include such things as:

  • Avoiding further substance use as you make progress in your rehab program
  • Understanding how SUDs function and how they first come to affect you
  • Learning how your mood and actions can worsen your substance problems or help you avoid using drugs and alcohol
  • Successfully weathering the challenges of your recovery while staying focused on your long-term goals 

At The A.R.T.S., we also make use of holistic treatments that work well with therapy and our other rehab options. Contact us today to learn more about our full range of resources.

Recovering From Dual Diagnosis in an SUD Treatment Center

What kind of help do you need if you’re affected by a mental illness in addition to your SUD? The most effective response to this overlap of conditions is a dual diagnosis treatment plan. At our San Fernando Valley addiction treatment center in Thousand Oaks, we feature this kind of combined mental health care. Part of your treatment will center on your recovery from addiction and/or substance abuse. At the same time, we’ll provide targeted treatment for the second condition impacting your health and everyday function.

Outpatient Recovery at Our Thousand Oaks Addiction Treatment Center

For many people affected by an SUD, outpatient programs are prized recovery resources. That’s true because they:

  • Support rehabilitation from most kinds of substance problems
  • Don’t require you to make a 24/7 commitment to onsite treatment 
  • Help you maintain an active routine and meet your home or work responsibilities
  • Are potentially less expensive and more convenient than residential programs

Our full-service addiction treatment center in Thousand Oaks offers multiple outpatient options. In total, there are three such options for SUD recovery:

  • An outpatient program that provides you with up to eight hours of treatment for each week of your enrollment
  • An intensive outpatient program (I.O.P.) that provides you with nine to 19 hours of treatment for every week you’re enrolled
  • A partial hospitalization program (PHP) that starts with 20 hours of weekly treatment and has no fixed upper limit to the amount of help you receive
