Benefits of Detox

The most popular and motivating benefit of participating in a detox program is the assurance of complete safety while enduring the potentially life-threatening risks of overdose and relapse. During this process, the mental state of the patients is often tested as well. Since it plays a vital role in their ability to overcome their addictions, our trained experts are readily available to assist with any behavioral health issues that arise during the alcohol and drug rehab program’s stages.

A couple of other notable benefits of taking part in a drug or alcohol detox program include:

Medical Care

Each patient receives around-the-clock support and medical care that is readily available to assist with any possible issues that may occur.

Mental & Physical Health

Drug & Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Detox in Laguna Beach

Since addiction can be very unpredictable, an extensive assessment is encouraged to be taken with each patient as they arrive so that our staff can be prepared with all the appropriate knowledge and tools needed to ensure a full and safe detox process. This is important because, for some people, detox can take only a couple of hours or days. For many others, it has been seen to take many weeks to rid the body entirely of those harmful substances.

A few factors that come into play when dictating the length of time this process will take typically include the following:

What the specific drugs of choice are that have been being abused.
The dose and how ling the drugs have been abused.
Any previous detox or rehab program attempts.
The user’s overall health condition.
Any co-occurring disorders (mental health conditions along with the drug abuse)

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the average duration of detox in the United States is fewer than eight days. Usually, with medically-assisted detox treatment, both inpatient and outpatient program settings are available, which can be tailored to accommodate each patient’s specific needs while maintaining a safe and comfortable environment.

Common Medications Used During Detox

As previously mentioned, certain medications can be used as directed by a doctor to relieve pain and reduce the effects of withdrawal. Opioid and alcohol addictions more frequently are treated using these medications.

The general medications that implemented during drug and alcohol detox programs are: 

This medication reduces intense opioid cravings, euphoria, and many other opioid symptoms.

Reduces cravings as well as blocks euphoric effects of alcohol.
