Essential Behavioral Health Sacramento

Essential Behavioral Health in Sacramento, California is a unique detox and residential rehabilitation treatment center built around helping you heal and rebuild. The area surrounding our facility is known for the rich history dating as far back as the 1860s. In fact, the area was the first home to the transcontinental railway and it boasts an astounding number of museums. The history of the areas isn’t all that shapes the home style feelings of care you will experience with Essential Behavioral Health.

Patients in our care will have the opportunity to participate in programs like:

  • intensive outpatient programs that provide long term individualized care
  • flexible outpatient programs that are less frequent and built around your schedule
  • recovery residence programs that provide a safe haven away from the stressors of everyday life

Coming to the west coast for healing can be a breath of fresh air. Our location in the happy middle of California gives us the unique opportunity to draw on the cultures of both the north and southwest. Whether the calming vibes of mountain air or the look and feel of southwestern landscapes are more your style, we’ve got you covered. Not to mention that being in a setting that feels like a safe haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life can provide a large variety of unique experiences designed to bolster recovery.

Individualized Addiction Treatment Programs in the Heart of California

Located in a city known for its ever-growing and expanding nature starting with the railroad in the 1860s, we recognize the importance and benefits of continued growth. Our clients can reflect on the community and togetherness that embodies culture here at Essential Behavioral Health. They can learn about the importance of dynamically changing as a person and focus on finding their own core personal identity.

Everyone with an addiction has different reasons for using drugs or alcohol and will go home to different environments after graduating from our program. By helping our patients become more at ease with their authentic selves, we can help set up a foundation of successful recovery.

We also recognize that everyone needs a different treatment plan and our programs allow us to shape therapies to each individual’s needs.

We’re able to make sure each patient truly receives that individual care with our network of trusted, local partners in the Sacramento area to provide high-quality accommodations at private recovery residences.

Alternatively, our intensive outpatient program provides treatment in a nurturing environment for clients who do not need 24-hour medical supervision, but who recognize the need for structure in their recovery journey for addiction, mental health, or both.

Programs typically run 1-3 months, although the duration may vary. Most clients meet three times per week for three hours each session

Our patients have the ability to experience the best Sacramento has to offer while receiving the help that they need. They have access to

  • State-of-the-art facility featuring accommodations like kitchen and common room
  • Culturally diverse environments nearby like parks and other beautiful landscapes
  • World-class museums and cultural centers around the area
  • Easy to access public transportation

What We Treat and the Essential Behavioral Health Difference

Essential Behavioral Health provides dual diagnosis treatment, meaning that we have psychologists and psychiatrists on our regular staff, and ensure that underlying mental health issues are thoroughly treated. In fact, we pride ourselves on providing care for those with co-occurring disorders with the latest evidence-based practices.

Treating underlying mental illness ensures recovery is more likely to stick. Our treatment approach accounts for this, and we have made co-occurring disorders a cornerstone of what we treat.

Our Master’s-level clinicians are available to every client staying at our inpatient mental health facility. Our staff has deep experience addressing both addiction and mental health, and we see the treatment of co-occurring disorders as part of our mission to help clients reclaim their whole physical and mental health.

But, we don’t stop there. We continue to care and provide each person with an empowered sense of self. After all, our treatment is rooted in the philosophy that recovery is a lifelong journey. We have built each program to address practical life challenges, while giving our clients ongoing support and encouragement long after leaving our care.

A Look At Our Sacramento-Based Alcoholism Treatment Program

Our intake process starts like most drug or alcohol rehab facilities, with a personalized assessment that allows us to get to know you, so we can develop a unique plan based on your medical history, personality and goals. Our continuing care and alumni services ensure that you are never alone on your journey.

This is why Essential Behavioral Health’s treatment programs stand out among the rest. For example, most alcoholism treatment at other rehabs only offer 12-Step programming.

While 12-Step alcoholism and narcotics treatment variations have been successful for many, this faith-based approach does not work for everyone.

A typical week in our unique outpatient treatment includes six hours of counseling, six days a week. Programs will be specifically tailored to your needs and will consider your personal health history, goals, and any co-occurring disorders that may affect your treatment.

Taking a full mental health approach to addiction also requires teaching our clients self-care, and ensuring that they have a proper after-care plan in place when they leave our rehab center.

We treat each of our clients as people, looking not only at their addiction but at all their medical and mental wellness needs to get back on track.

We address addiction to various substances, and our unique recovery center is specifically designed to troubleshoot and identify any underlying causes of your addiction. Meanwhile, we also help resolve familial issues and repair the relationships with those you love most.
