Above It All Provides Inpatient Treatment to Irvine Residents who Struggles with the “Revolving-Door” Effect Associated with Sobriety
Addiction is a chronic disease that is constantly on the rise in the U.S. and around the world. 23.5 million Americans are addicted to alcohol and drugs, with the average age for addiction beginning as young as, a little over 12 years old.
Addiction, when left untreated, becomes a lifelong issue of increased substance abuse and the display of harmful and dangerous behavior to self and others. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, addiction costs, not only the families, but the government as well, raking in a whopping $36 billion a year in health care expenses and a further $380 billion annually in overall expenses.
Addiction, at times, can seem like a never ending cycle with the individual trying to quit; succeeding for a few days, weeks, months, and in some cases, they abstain from the addictive substance for years only to have something trigger what first caused the addictive behavior and they relapse. There are others who enter into a treatment program and do extremely well at beating their addiction, but revert to their old ways once they are out and back to their day-to-day activities. This cycle goes on and on for many people suffering with addiction; however, what causes this revolving door experience and what can you do to stop it and maintain sobriety forever?
Not all treatment programs are the same; however, with a specially tailored inpatient treatment plan, you or your loved one can become sober and maintain a lifetime of sobriety.
Outpatient Drug Rehab versus Inpatient Treatment
While various individuals can and have beaten addiction through home treatment and outpatient counseling sessions, self-prescribed treatments aren’t for everybody.
Outpatient drug rehab, when compared to inpatient treatment programs are less invasive and restrictive. While both treatment programs require up to 12 hours a week in counseling and other tailored group and individual sessions; outpatient recovery programs differ from inpatient greatly because at the end of each outpatient session, the client is allowed to return home, while in inpatient programs, the client must remain in the treatment facility for the duration of their treatment.
For individuals suffering from mild addiction, an outpatient treatment program may be enough; however, for those individuals who have battled a lifetime of addiction and have suffered from the revolving-door effect, inpatient treatment is your best and only solution.
What is our solution for the revolving-door effect and how can Irvine residents benefit from it?
While individuals are encouraged into treatment every day, most are unaware and blinded as to what inpatient addiction treatment entails and because they are unaware that treatment isn’t a one-size-fit all approach, some will opt out of inpatient treatment and seek to treat themselves or loved one at home, using different methods of treatment that friends, other family members, the internet and may be even their doctors recommend.
However, by doing this, many individuals will experience what is known as the revolving-door effect associated with addiction treatment and sobriety. But why does this happen? Is it that you or your loved one addiction is so far gone, it is untreatable?
The answer to this is a firm no, you just haven’t found the right treatment program; until now. The thing about addiction treatment is, there’s no one-size fits all treatment, as was mentioned before; however, with a tailored inpatient treatment program from us, at Above It All, we can treat you or your loved ones addiction; help you beat that revolving door syndrome and maintain a lifetime of sobriety.
At Above It All, We Take Everything Into consideration
When creating the right treatment plan, at Above It All, we consider it all. We take a detailed look into your history of abuse.

This information is important in order for us to determine the right course of treatment and tailor a plan that is right for you or your loved one.
So, what does our treatment program entail?
Treatment at our facilities, doesn’t only facilitate you in the here and now and it’s certainly not only for when you are at the program center.

But, What Exactly is Sober Living?
The first thing to know about sobriety is that it is a process that lasts a lifetime; however, with the stresses of daily living, your new found recovery may be difficult to maintain. Therefore, the need to develop skills for coping with the daily struggles and prevent relapses, some might say, is more important than being in rehab.
