Drug + Alcohol Addiction Program

An estimated 98 million Americans are chemically dependent or in a relationship with someone who has a chemical dependency. This condition is chronic and progressive, but with proper treatment, it can be resolved. HVRC offers comprehensive, evidence-based care for chemical dependency.

Chemical Dependency Addiction Treatment Program

The Disease of Chemical Dependency

Chemical dependency is a pervasive disease that touches the lives of most Americans. Consider these facts:

  • 1 out of every 4 families in the United States suffers from alcohol- or drug-related addiction problems.
  • 25 to 40 percent of all general hospital patients are admitted for a drug or alcohol related problem.
  • An estimated 98 million people in this country are chemically dependent or in a relationship with someone who is chemically dependent.
  • 35 million Americans are children of alcoholics.

There is a significant amount of data that supports a genetic predisposition toward the disease of chemical dependency. Genetically associated diseases ultimately have a biochemical basis. Science is working to find biological markers to identify high risk individuals, but no such tests are currently available.

Regardless of the diagnostic criteria, it is clear that addiction has become a rising problem in America. With so many people affected by this disease, evidence-based treatment is required. At Hemet Valley Recovery Center and Sage Retreat, we have developed an addiction treatment program which is effective, rooted in scientific research, and accessible to people around the country.

Medically Supervised Detoxification

Chemical dependency can be identified and successfully treated. Medical detoxification is not a substitute or replacement for treatment; it is just the beginning of the recovery process. At Hemet Valley Recovery Center and Sage Retreat, chemical dependency treatment and medical detox programs are provided in inpatient, outpatient and long term residential treatment settings.

As a part of the Hemet Valley Medical Center campus, HVRC has access to hospital-level support services for all of our patients. Those who participate in our medically supervised detox program receive the highest quality of care from credentialed professionals. Registered nurses are staffed on all three shifts, and their involvement provides peace of mind for all of our patients and their families. At HVRC, you can be sure that you will receive the highest quality of care.

Individualized Chemical Dependency Rehab Programs

Following detoxification, our California residential treatment program provides the foundation that will support long term recovery. We believe that chemical dependency is a primary problem, not a symptom of another disease and thus primary treatment for addiction is appropriate and important.

Closely aligned with the principles of 12 Step Recovery, Hemet Valley Recovery Center & Sage Retreat provide individualized care that includes the psychological, social, spiritual, and physical aspects of the whole person. Care is provided through an interdisciplinary team of addiction specialists with a case manager assigned to each individual patient. The treatment team includes…

  • Physicians,
  • Registered Nurses (RNs),
  • Certified Counselors, and
  • Adjunctive Therapists.

When indicated, a Dietitian and Physical Therapist also participate in the team process.

Chemical dependency treatment and detox patients are included in goal setting. They also participate in the development of their addiction treatment plans.

Treatment includes:

  • Group therapy,
  • Educational lectures and presentations,
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT),
  • Personalized assignments,
  • 12 Step and holistic therapy groups,
  • Exercise,
  • Recreation groups, and
  • Relapse prevention, to name a few.
