Rehabilitation Centers Provide Intensive Treatment in California

Commonly called rehab centers, residential treatment centers fill a critical health care need as they supply aid to individuals experiencing a variety of physical and mental health concerns. Rehab centers are often thought of as treatment facilities for people facing drug and alcohol addiction, but many residential treatment centers specialize in other adverse behavioral and mental health conditions, such as disordered eating, gambling addiction, and anxiety issues.

These mental health facilities are staffed day and night by professional health care staff and residents benefit in residential treatment by being removed from the stressors of daily life. People with symptoms of depression, for example, may find healing at depression treatment centers where they receive personalized care and attention. Residents often learn more about their condition through therapy and informal socializing with fellow residents who are also affected by depression.

Every treatment facility is different, but most will provide these services, at a minimum:

  • An alcohol- and drug-free establishment.
  • Individual and group therapy sessions that help cultivate self-awareness, healthy coping skills, social support, and self-compassion.
  • Medication management and medical supervision for any physical health conditions and for any treatments, such as detox for those seeking recovery from addiction.
  • A variety of activities that help residents relax or develop skills and enhance self-confidence. Activities may range from meditation to horseback riding.
  • Outpatient services are frequently offered at these mental health facilities, particularly for former residents who are transitioning back to routine life.


Mental Health Care in California

Mental Health America’s (MHA) most recent survey ranked California as number 29 among all the states in terms of prevalence of mental health issues and rate of access to care. Data gathered by the survey showed that, in terms of mental health, adults fared better than youth among California residents. Less than 18% of adults in California report having any serious mental health condition, one of the lowest rates in the country. However, almost 8% of minors in California demonstrate dependency on drugs and illicit substances, and this is the 6th highest rate in America.

The well-being index developed by Gallup-Healthways reports that while California is ranked 40th out all American states in the category of access to basic services in 2013, it is ranked 5th in healthy behaviors. The communities of San Jose, Sunnyvale, and Santa Clara showed consistently high scores in work environment, life evaluation, healthy behaviors, and emotional and physical health. California was ranked 17th in overall well-being.
