Recover from Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Our alcohol detox center in Costa Mesa, CA is a warm, welcoming, and safe environment for you to break free from alcohol dependency. We know it isn’t always easy to ask for help, and we know that you may be facing many challenges.
Alcohol abuse and consistent heavy drinking lead to alcohol dependency, making it difficult to stay clean. There can be dangerous mental and physical complications that come with alcohol withdrawal.
The goal of detox at our alcohol treatment facility is to help you through the excruciating and potentially dangerous symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. If you are a heavy drinker, these symptoms can be excruciating and dangerous.
After consistent drinking, a person may begin to develop an alcohol use disorder (AUD).
Alcohol Use Disorder can be defined in different severities for a list of 11 different symptoms. Essentially this includes criteria such as how often a person drinks, how much they drink, consequences of drinking, etc.
The symptoms of AUD that pertain to alcohol dependency are tolerance and withdrawal.
Tolerance is defined by a need to increase the amount of alcohol a person uses to achieve the desired level of intoxication.
Withdrawal is defined by characteristics of alcohol withdrawal symptoms a person experiences.
Anyone who has drunk alcohol has experienced the depressive effect it produces. When a person continues to drink heavily over time, they increase reliance on the substance. This continuously building reliance produces stronger and stronger withdrawal symptoms over time.
Eventually, it gets to a point where a person can not suddenly stop drinking without experiencing life-threatening consequences.
Within hours of a person’s last drink, their body begins the detoxification process. Not only are withdrawal symptoms during detox uncomfortable, but they can be dangerous.
Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS) Complications:
In cases where a person is experiencing severe symptoms, they may have done damage to the body’s organs.
Long-term heavy drinking and severe withdrawals can lead to liver disease, heart failure, permanent nerve damage, and permanent brain damage.
Because of the above complications, it is important for a person to seek medical help before they put the glass down. A treatment center like ours can help a person through a medically-assisted detox program that utilizes medicines to reduce complications.
Medications used during alcohol detox include:
Once you have been assessed and admitted into our program, you will begin with an intake process and get settled in. Each person is different, and we will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is personally tailored to meet your needs.
During the detox process, we will make you as comfortable as possible and will provide counseling services and 24/7 care. Counseling includes both one-on-one therapy as well as group therapy settings.
