Asana Recovery is a family owned alcohol and drug recovery program located in Costa Mesa, California just a couple miles from the Orange County coastline. The program is state licensed and nationally accredited for medical detoxification, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment. Utilizing evidence based practices and harm reduction techniques, our management and clinical staff include some of the most experienced and accomplished addiction treatment professionals in the industry. Providing empathetic support for clients entering treatment whether it is their first or umpteenth episode is our specialty. The “Asana Way” focuses on providing personalized and comprehensive treatment plans for both men and women in recovery. It embodies our forward-thinking approach to the treatment of addiction, pairing traditional and alternative methods, and serving all clients with compassion, while providing appropriate structure and practicing essential values in work and in play. Treatment planning begins immediately upon admission and during detoxification with involvement in individual and group therapy sessions and case management. Medication assisted detoxification, or detox, from opiates, alcohol and/or other drugs is managed closely by the onsite medical team to ensure client safety and comfort. Non-traditional detox protocols are often implemented to better match each client’s uniqueness. Daily treatment programming is specifically geared towards addressing underlying issues driving the addiction while also developing recovery tools. Group therapy is interwoven between individual and family sessions. Therapy modalities can include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Traditional 12-Step and Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART) groups are attended on a nightly basis. Mindfulness, physical exercise and healthy eating are incorporated into daily treatment programming. Most meals are prepared by an on-site chef with a focus on replenishing basic vitamins and minerals. The nutritionist provides dietary analysis, consulting and meal preparation training. Daily physical activity can range from beach walks to cross fit training to one-on-one boxing with our personal trainers.

Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Detox
    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Process Abuse Treatment
    Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

Rehabs 360 Guide

ABOUT ASANA RECOVERY

Asana Recovery is a substance misuse treatment organization with three locations in Costa Mesa, Calif. The organization’s “Asana Way” blends alternative, evidence-based, and traditional therapies in guiding men and women past drug and alcohol addiction and meeting their emotional, behavioral, and mental health needs. Asana Recovery offers medical detoxification, residential treatment, and outpatient programs.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The first stage in the Asana Way treatment process is to detox in an environment that's supervised 24 hours a day. To withdraw successfully, clients undergo testing and screening and meet with consulting physicians for both prescription and non-prescription medications. Detox uses either Vivitrol or Suboxone, medications used by 19.1 and 25.2 percent of rehabs in California, respectively.

Once stabilized, clients can go into either residential or outpatient treatment. Residential treatment plans typically range from 28 to 90 days in length, making Asana Recovery one of 440 (33.6 percent) California facilities to offer a long-term (30+ days) residential program.

Treatment incorporates a range of therapies including psychodrama, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EDMR), SMART recovery groups, life skills training, and addiction education. To encourage community integration and social support, clients may be paired with local 12-step and other support groups following treatment.

Beyond their time spent in therapy, residents can practice mindfulness and get exercise by walking, biking, and engaging in non-competitive sports with others.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Led by a board-certified psychiatrist and a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), Asana Recovery staffs a team of client care coordinators, licensed therapists, a case manager, personal trainers, and a chef.

Asana Recovery is a state-certified facility that also holds certifications from CARF and the Joint Commission, accreditations held by 27.9 and 13.9 percent of rehabs in California, respectively.

    The staff is great especially connects with the individuals and keeps his promise. This place is not for young adults who is not truly dedicated to getting help due to too much down time. This place did help me learn how to cope with life sober. I also put in the work and did exercises on my own during our down times. They don't keep their word alot of broken promises. Food is catered daily which is a waste because food is thrown away daily when their are homeless people that can eat the food. I was told I would be here 60 days and found out 2 weeks before my diacharge that I could only stay 30 days. If I wouldn't have asked, I don't think I would've known. I think staff could be a little more involved than they are. I'm thankful overall because I was able to find me and learn how to stay sober. I see life in a whole different perspective now.
