Treatment for College Students

College and Universities are often associated with drinking and drug use. The presence of substance use on campuses has been portrayed in television shows, media, and social media, which have normalized this behavior. 

The reality of the situation is that college students are often able to hide their substance use from their family and loved ones while they are at school. The level of freedom that is associated with college can make it easier for students to keep family at arm’s length. 

Ocean Coast Recovery offers an inpatient college student drug rehab in Huntington Beach, CA. Our treatment facility can provide you with detoxification and inpatient rehab programming. Your time with us will focus on your unique needs and aim to prepare you for your recovery. To learn more about how Ocean Coast Recovery can support you in your recovery, call (866) 456-2812 today!

Why Do College Students Use Drugs?

College students are often trying to navigate a whole new world when they begin their collegiate education. For many, this is their first experience with a significant amount of freedom and little to no supervision from their parents and guardians. Even students who study close to home experience a shift in their sense of freedom. 

College students are almost expected to experiment with different areas of their life, including using drugs and alcohol. This expectation can make it challenging for others to differentiate experimentation from substance abuse. 

Access to drugs and alcohol tends to be easier on a college campus when compared to high school and within the workforce. This brings more opportunities for students to use and abuse substances. 

Ocean Coast Recovery is a drug rehab for college students in Huntington Beach, CA. Our treatment program ranges from 30 to 90 days, which is dependent on your unique treatment needs. We use a combination of traditional treatment approaches and alternative treatment methods. Call (866) 456-2812 to speak with an Ocean Coast Recovery representative now.

The challenges

What Are the Challenges in College Student Addiction Treatment

College students who are in need of addiction treatment often find themselves worried about how it will fit into their schedule. While this can pose a challenge, deciding to get the help you need can have a positive impact on your academics, compared to continuing to struggle with substance use. This can mean that some need to withdraw for the semester, while others can get help during a winter or summer recess. Academic advisors would be able to provide you with further information regarding how treatment would impact your education. 

Many individuals, even those not in college, worry about the cost of addiction treatment. Depending on your health insurance plan, you may be able to use your plan coverage to cover some, if not most, of the associated cost of treatment.
