Fred Brown Recovery Services

I read a review on the councelor being under the influence, that is so not true. I left Fred Browns sober living 03/07/2021 I have nothing but good thoughts about the entire staff, councelors are very supportive. I am now a student at LBCC and I owe it to my councelor Ysenia B. She saw the good in me as do all the other councelor with all the clients. They believe in us!! The sober living is without a doubt the cleanest and up to date amenities. If there was a meed of a repair, it was addressed right away. I could go on and on!!

San Pedro, CA

Patel Ranjan PSY.D- MFT

Been doing telemedicine with her for a while, and due to finances, I wanted very short term therapy and though I tried to pin her down on how many sessions I\'d need, she refused to give me that, which looking back, I understand. Lucky for me, I was in and out in eight visits, which my work covered partially. I was initially on the fence about seeing her because of her fee (she\'s more expensive than the other therapist I checked with), but I went with my gut because when I talked to her over the phone, she not only took her time and spent as long as I needed, for free, but she actively told me that she encouraged me to reach out to other therapists so I wouldn\'t haveI\'ve to pay more than I\'m comfortable with, she gave me some referrals. But I decided to see her and it\'s been worth it; she gives assignments and structure because I asked for it, and also talked to my psychiatrist, which helped me feel like I have a team.

More Info

Addiction in California

The most frequently abused substances in California include alcohol, marijuana, painkillers, cocaine, and methamphetamine.1,2 Alcohol is the substance that is abused most commonly.1,2 In 2018, there were 5,348 overdose deaths in California.3 Almost half of all overdose deaths in 2017 involved opioids such as painkillers, fentanyl, and heroin.4

California-Specific Drug Stats

Almost 10% of the population in California struggles with addiction. Addiction rates in people age 18-25 are higher than those of other groups.1 Almost 2.5 million Californians age 12 and older had a substance use disorder (SUD) in 2017 and 1.8 million had an alcohol use disorder (AUD).2 A 2017 survey of past-year substance use indicated that among Californians age 12 and older:2

  • 7 million people had used marijuana.
  • 4 million people had misused painkillers.
  • 889,000 people had used cocaine.
  • 265,000 people had used methamphetamine.
  • 61,000 people had used heroin.

The survey also tracked past-month substance use among Californians age 12 and older, finding:2

  • 7 million people had used marijuana.
  • 5 million people had used alcohol.
  • 7 million people had engaged in binge drinking (5 or more drinks in 2 hours for men, 4 or more for women).

California Treatment Facts

In 2018, California had 1,502 facilities to treat all types of addictions, including 1,041 outpatient treatment facilities and 588 facilities that offered intensive outpatient treatment.5 In these facilities a variety of services are used, including:5

  • Addiction, mental health, and infectious disease assessments.
  • Individual, group, and family counseling.
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
  • Aftercare.
  • Case management.
  • Promoting healthy behaviors.

Defining Outpatient Treatment

Most Californians seeking help for SUDs attend outpatient treatment.1 Outpatient treatment offers a range of effective options that don’t interfere with other responsibilities at school, work, or home.6,7 It also costs less than inpatient care, allowing people to remain in treatment long enough to learn how to function in daily life without turning to substances.6,7

Standard outpatient treatment is a lower-intensity form of treatment and involves shorter counseling sessions than intensive outpatient treatment, which meets for about 6 to 9 hours per week.7,8 Outpatient services include individual, group, and family counseling; behavioral therapies to help people learn how to manage triggers, avoid relapse, and promote healthy behaviors; MAT to reduce cravings and treat mental health disorders if applicable; and encouraging people to use peer supports.1,6,7

How to Find Outpatient Rehab in California

California’s outpatient treatment facilities can be found throughout the state, with a significant number located in the central and southwest regions of the state.5 Most large cities have rehab facilities, including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, Long Beach, Sacramento, Oakland, Santa Ana, and Anaheim.9 You can find a nearby treatment center by clicking here.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Many people have mental health conditions in addition to substance abuse disorder. When people have both types of conditions, it is called dual diagnosis, or having co-occurring disorders.16 Various treatment approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy and contingency management, can address both disorders.16

Does My Insurance Cover Treatment in California?

It can be costly to attend treatment. The cost of care is dependent on which facility you choose, how many sessions you attend, how long you’re in treatment, and what your insurance covers.

Many health insurance companies are accepted in California facilities, including Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna, Kaiser Foundation, and United Healthcare.10 Your insurance provider is the best source of information about what your benefits cover.

California Insurance (i.e. Medicaid) Treatment Facilities

Medicaid is a government-funded health insurance program for people with disabilities and, in certain states, adults who earn less than a set amount.11,12 California Medicaid is known as Medi-Cal, and low-income adults are eligible for Medicaid.13,14

Medi-Cal covers SUD treatment.15 In California, 587 treatment centers take Medi-Cal.5 You can find out if you’re eligible for Medi-Cal here.
