One of California’s Top Drug & Alcohol Addiction Extended Care Programs
Our unique, individualized treatment program gets results. Our goal is to empower each client to live the best life possible. In that spirit, we offer a multi-faceted program that works for everyone.
Cycles of Change Recovery Services
We specialize in drug and long-term alcohol addiction treatment. We have made it our mission to guide families to believe that all addicted individuals can attain their goals given the right circumstances. Our focus is on improving the person as a whole, psychologically, emotionally, and socially. We provide a path leading away from drug addiction and alcoholism to a future filled with self-confidence, independence, and freedom.
Individualized Recovery Program
Recovery is a word used so often that it can lose its meaning. Addiction recovery can become just a term for those lucky individuals on the other side of addiction. Such individuals already made it through. It’s a word for that goal that is off in the distance. Someone may say, “One day, I’ll be in recovery; one day, all of this will be the past.” Recovery can become a dream and something distant.
This sometimes happens because we cannot see the road that leads to recovery. Addiction is before our eyes; substance abuse disorders are the only thing we can see. It’s with us all the time. But recovery? It’s somewhere off in the distance; it is abstract and fleeting, like a warm breeze that disappears too quickly on a cold day.
Are you ready to successfully overcome your addiction?
We want to help individuals find the road to recovery. The road is different for everyone; it turns and shifts at other places. The road may have additional stops for some; at times, a road will turn, and it looks like we are heading in the wrong direction. Some paths lead out of addiction routes that can lead to recovery. Our professional staff has trained extensively to learn what these paths look like to help others get there.
Recovery Happens at Cycles of Change Recovery
Critical to this vision of helping individuals recover is understanding the cycles that this path can take. Recovery cannot happen if we continue all the same habits and patterns that led to the addiction in the first place. Instead, we must begin to develop new habits, must begin with gradual changes. Each of these changes will reinforce the others. The change will happen in cycles as we start building new ways of seeing the world and handling the difficulties in life.

Frequently Asked Questions
We understand that choosing a drug or alcohol rehab can be a daunting task. During the process, you will have many questions about the treatment program, our staff, what to expect, and many more. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that could help make a better-informed decision.
Do you accept health insurance?
Yes. More than 90% of our rehabilitation clients use their medical insurance to cover the treatment cost – both in-network and out-of-network. We accept most major insurance plans, including Cigna, Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare (UHC), and many others.
For both in-network and out-of-network health insurance, our standard process is:
- Do initial insurance benefits check before admission;
- Complete an authorization for payment (called a “pre-authorization”) with your insurance company in the first 24 hours after admission;
- Do ongoing “utilization reviews” (UR’s) that insurance companies require throughout treatment to continue paying your benefits;
- Have one of our medical/clinical professionals or certified addiction counselors speak with a physician or clinician at the insurance company in a “peer-to-peer” review to discuss continuing authorization of substance abuse treatment services if needed;
- In some cases, insurance companies require individuals to pay for their treatment directly and then reimburse them for their care. Suppose your insurance company does not pay us now. In that case, we file the insurance claim for you as a courtesy after the treatment stay is complete to get you reimbursed for your treatment fees.
To determine whether your insurance will cover treatment with us, call our 24/7 admissions department for a free insurance benefits verification.
Will I lose time from my work?
The impact of residential treatment on individuals’ professional lives varies. Our residential treatment program is intensive, so individuals cannot work while in treatment. That said, we are sensitive to the impact of missing work and lost income on clients’ lives.
We work closely with both employers and employees to minimize the negative impact of a stay in residential treatment on employment and the workplace. In most cases, individuals’ careers and professional lives are not only retained but often enhanced because of their choice to participate in drug & alcohol treatment.
What happens when I check-in for drug & alcohol treatment?
When you arrive at our treatment center, we welcome you and your family members and friends who might accompany you to drop you off. We provide a family orientation packet to family and friends that includes
- what you will be doing in treatment
- how they can best support you
- how they can communicate with you while in treatment
- how we will be integrating family work in your treatment
Once you’ve completed the initial intake process, your treatment begins with a physical examination and medical history review. Your clinically monitored medication-assisted detoxification protocol will start if necessary.
Do you offer exercise and outdoor recreation?
Absolutely! Physical exercise is an essential part of strengthening the body after the ravages of drug addiction and alcoholism. Because our clients range in age and physical fitness, we do an initial assessment of physical condition. Based on this information, we set up a physical activity program that best suits their needs.
We have an in-house fitness center equipped with treadmills, elliptical trainers, stationary bikes, and strength training equipment. Yoga, meditation, and spiritual counseling are also integral parts of our treatment program.
What happens if you relapse after treatment?
No. Relapse does not necessarily mean that addiction treatment was not successful or the client has “failed.” Relapse is simply relapse. One goal of therapy is to teach clients the skills necessary. If they do relapse, they have the tools required to recover from it immediately, get back into recovery, and continue to live a productive and healthy life.
It is essential to understand that drug and alcohol addiction is a chronic, progressive, and lifelong disease that requires on-going maintenance. Addiction is often characterized by periodic relapses, which may or may not include substance use. These relapses result from peer pressure, not following your recovery program faithfully, or most often, the inability to cope with stress.
Cycles of Change Recovery is here for our clients for the rest of their lives. If an individual does relapse, we will do everything to support them and help them get back into recovery. Sometimes that means providing a friend to talk to and emotional support. Sometimes, that means bringing them back into detox and treatment. Whatever is necessary, rest assured, we are here to help.
What can I bring with me to treatment?
For a complete list of items to bring and things to leave home, read our “What to Bring to Treatment Page.” We encourage residents to wear comfortable clothing suitable for the season. Our Palmdale Rehab Center is in Los Angeles County in Southern California, an area considered by many to offer one of the best year-round climates in the entire United States.
How much one-on-one individual therapy will I receive?
Each client receives a minimum of two one-hour individual counseling sessions per week with their primary counselor. Still, the number of sessions is dependent on your treatment plan. In addition to individual counseling, our program offers daily group Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) sessions. Group therapy allows clients the opportunity to share and learn from one another’s experiences.
Is it normal to experience depression and anxiety?
In a single word, yes. Our goal is to give you all the skills necessary to live a life free from addiction forever. That said, sometimes addiction is not the only challenge that individuals face. Addicts and Alcoholics often suffer from other “co-occurring” disorders (otherwise known as “dual diagnosis”).
Our treatment staff includes a medical doctor who can recognize depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other co-occurring disorders and treat them. Cycles of Change Recovery Center provides a full continuum of care for dual diagnosis treatment. We provide all of the skills necessary to meet life head-on without using drugs and alcohol.
What constitutes a “successful” treatment outcome?
Decades of experience treating addicts and alcoholics have taught us that success in treatment means that an individual can live a rewarding life free from addiction’s harmful effects. It is that simple. They are focusing on productive, healthy life and can maintain healthy relationships with loved ones. Hundreds of former clients are living proof that a clean and sober life is possible.
Can I take my regular prescription medications while in treatment?
It depends on the medications. Certain medications such as anti-depressants, blood pressure medicine, and others will be allowed. All too often, individuals suffering from drug and alcohol addiction don’t realize that the medications prescribed by their doctors are addictive and are part of their problem.
Each medicine is considered for its safety, addictive potential, and likeliness to trigger a relapse to determine whether you should continue taking it. In most cases, an alternative, safer treatment can usually be prescribed to serve the same purpose but does not present an ongoing danger to an individual’s recovery success.
