What to Expect at
South Coast Behavioral Health
Levels of care at our Orange County California drug rehab include:
South Coast provides 24/7 comprehensive detox services to ensure the process is safe and as comfortable as possible. Our detox team is a compassionate group of highly trained medical professionals, including registered, licensed nurses who will conduct a complete physical exam and medical history. Throughout detox, we help ease painful withdrawal symptoms with research-backed medications and monitor clients around the clock, attending to any discomfort or emergencies.
South Coast offers residential treatment in a private, serene setting where clients recover alongside peers who understand what each other is going through. We tailor treatment plans to each client’s individual needs and preferences.
Our outpatient programs provide structure and support for clients transitioning out of residential treatment or for those who don’t require a higher level of care. Outpatient treatment helps clients build confidence in recovery skills while facing challenges in everyday life.
