Alcohol and/or Drug addiction are complex illnesses characterized by intense and, at times, uncontrollable cravings, along with compulsions to use or drink that persist even in the face of devastating consequences. While the path to alcoholism and/or drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of drinking and/or taking drugs, over time a person's ability to choose not to do so becomes compromised, and seeking and consuming becomes compulsive. This behavior results largely from the effects of prolonged exposure on brain functioning. Alcoholism and addiction is a brain disease that affects multiple brain circuits, including those involved in reward and motivation, learning and memory, and inhibitory control over behavior.

Because alcoholism and addiction have so many dimensions and disrupt so many aspects of an individual's life, treatment is not simple. At Southern California Recovery Centers we incorporate many components, each directed to a particular aspect of the illness and its consequences. At Southern California Recovery Centers we help our clients to stop using and/or drinking, maintain a sober lifestyle, and achieve productive functioning in the family, at work, and in society. Because addiction and alcoholism are typically chronic diseases, people cannot simply stop using or drinking for a few days and be cured. Most patients require long-term care to achieve the ultimate goal of sustained sobriety.

Too often, addiction and alcoholism go untreated: According to SAMHSA's National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 23.2 million persons (9.4 percent of the U.S. population) aged 12 or older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem in 2012. Of these individuals, 2.4 million (10.4 percent of those who needed treatment) received treatment at a specialty facility (i.e., hospital, drug or alcohol rehabilitation or mental health center). Thus, 20.8 million persons (8.4 percent of the population aged 12 or older) needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem but did not receive it. These estimates are similar to those in previous years.

At SCRC we have seen the specialized treatment for men can help our clients overcome bio-psycho and social transformation that they go through in addiction.  Specializing in men’s recovery has given SCRC the ability to create customized treatment plans that target the specific areas men face when trying to overcome their addiction(s).

 Treatment Matching

Clients are taken through a series of criteria and exposed to treatment modalities that will increase a healthy response to the treatment given to them.  Some of the modalities that may be used are Twelve Step Facilitation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Enhancement Therapy.  SCRC’sstaff are trained addiction treatment specialist that will design a treatment plan that will match the client’s specific needs.


Treatment needs to be rapidly available to clients when they are need. Treatment motivation may be fleeting, and reducing barriers to immediate access is essential. At SCRC our staff will help the client if in crisis and are available to clients 24/7.

Domains of Care

Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual and not just his drug and/or alcohol use.  SCRC clients are treated in the following domains: Alcohol, Drugs, Medical, Psychological, Family/Relationships, Financial, Employment, Nutrition/Health and Legal.


An individual’s treatment and customized plan must be assessed continually and modified as necessary to ensure the plan meets the person’s changing needs.


Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is crucial for the client’s treatment effectiveness. SCRC staff highly recommends that each client, no matter their situation/scenario, should be in treatment for at least 90 days – 6 months.

Bio-Psycho-Social Treatments

Counseling (individual and/or group) and other behavioral therapies are crucial components of effective treatment for addiction. Some of SCRC’s bio-psycho-social treatments are Behavioral Group Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Coping Skills Training, Community Reinforcement Approach, Contingency Management, Motivational Incentives, Motivational Enhancement Therapy and Twelve Step Facilitation.


Medications may be an important element of treatment for many clients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies provided by SCRC.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Addicted or drug abusing individuals with co-e3xisting mental disorders should have both disorders treated in an integrated way.  SCRC staff will evaluate each client individually to assess dual-diagnosis needs.


Possible relapse behaviors can occur while in treatment which is why SCRC monitors clients at outpatient treatment center as well as in sober living environments.  The chances of relapse for each client must be monitored continuously. Lapses to drug and/or alcohol are common and can occur during treatment.

High Risk Behaviors

SCRC treatment programs provide assessments for high risk behaviors.  SCRC provides counseling to help the clients modify or change behaviors that place themselves or others at risk for potential relapse.  Denial management and relapse prevention skills are the most common tools used while in SCRC treatment.
