What is Detox?
Drug and alcohol withdrawal can certainly be a very painful process. Countless neural and hormonal systems are effected by substance abuse, then when that substance subsides, these systems are tossed into disorder. Many people are not aware that detox from an addictive substance has many potentially life-threatening effects. Consequences of withdrawal from drugs and alcohol may include but are not limited to excessive worry and anxiety, headaches, shakiness, seizures, and more. The patient’s blood pressure may increase or become at risk, he/she could perhaps sweat excessively or develop tremors. Extreme nausea and physical pain is typically very common. If you are experiencing any of these withdrawal symptoms when you stop using or simply cannot stop yourself from using, effecting your work, family and relationships, you most likely need a professional detox and treatment facility.

Why Use a Professional/Monitored Detox Program?
There are many dangerous side effects that occur during the drug and alcohol detox process, and it is medically unsafe to attempt detox addiction treatment without expert care and attention. Withdrawal symptoms can be painful and medically life-threatening. Often unassisted individuals resume substance use in order to stop the discomfort. In order to keep withdrawals from sabotaging recovery, SoCal Detox specialists monitor your comfort levels as well as insure medical safety.
Can I Use Insurance?
Yes, we accept most PPO insurances. When you call us we will help you find out how much is covered under your plan.

How Long Does a Drug or Alcohol Detox Take?
The average length of drug substance detox is four or five days to a couple weeks; it is determined by the types of drugs you have been recently using and your body’s reaction to treatment. Detoxification from opiates and benzos will likely endure from five to ten days. Although the actual physical withdrawal may disappear fairly quickly, many people experience a desire to continue drug use for some time because the behavior has become engrained. It certainly is recommended that you consider entering a program after your detox is complete to assist you in reclaiming your life and learn to produce new habits as a substitute to drug use. The SoCal Detox specialists are the first choice professionals to assist you into the next step after detox treatment and will happily discuss your options for continued recovery. These decisions are best made after you have conquered your first days in detox and are more alert and grounded to make this next important step.
