Medical
Detox

Drug specific detox protocols are utilized in our California medical detox to achieve a safe and comfortable treatment outcome. Drug and alcohol detox services are provided by a multidisciplinary team to provide treatment based upon individual needs.

Who Needs Medically Supervised Detox?

Addiction is a chronic, progressive disease, meaning that the longer a person uses substances, the more challenging it is to stop. Ongoing drug or alcohol use can create a chemical dependency: a mental and physical reliance on drinking or drugs. This dependence may result in severe withdrawal symptoms which require medical management.

If a person is reliant on specific substances, their withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening. Alcohol, prescription opioids, heroin, and benzodiazepine withdrawal may result in nausea, shaking, irregular heartbeat, insomnia, severe depression, hallucinations, and even seizures. Individuals looking for recovery from these substances are candidates for medically supervised detox.
