Our Costa Mesa Detox Center

Detox in Costa Mesa & Huntington Beach

The first step in treatment is called detox or detoxification. When a person’s body has become physically dependent on drugs or alcohol, medical intervention becomes necessary. If proper medical care is not provided at the time of detoxification, withdrawal from certain substances like alcohol and benzodiazepines is extremely dangerous.

Our Costa Mesa Detox Center assists people in cleansing their bodies of intoxicants as comfortably and safely as possible. Getting through detox then allows a patient to explore underlying issues.

What to expect:

Patients begin treatment at our detox program. During this time, there is a thorough assessment of a patient’s health. They are seen by both a medical doctor and a licensed psychiatrist who evaluate the patient’s history and assess withdrawal symptoms to create a tailored medical regime for the detoxification process.

While at this higher level of care, patients receive additional attention and supervision by the nursing and treatment team, especially during drug withdrawal. Groups and programming are available during the day; clients are encouraged to participate, but it is not required at this time.

Clients will spend the day at our treatment center in Costa Mesa, then reside comfortably overnight at sober living facilities in Huntington Beach.

8 Things to Know About Drug Withdrawal and Detox

Being armed with the knowledge of drug detoxification and the withdrawal process can help you be prepared to take the first step of getting sober.

Here are eight things to remember regarding drug and alcohol detox treatment:

You must be free from all drug toxins in order to receive effective addiction treatment, which includes addiction treatment groups, therapy and counseling.

Many believe that detox is all that’s required for recovery. This simply isn’t the case. Drug detox is just the first step in the ongoing process of breaking the cycle of drug addiction.

Your body will crave the drug, and you will likely experience physical symptoms like headaches, nausea, chills and fever.

Every individual is different when it comes to detox. For some, it takes two to three days to complete. For others, it can be up to a week or longer.

Your dependence and craving for the drug will increase, too.

You may exhibit behaviors that you don’t want to share with others. Within our detox program, you will be in a safe environment with experienced and dedicated staff members, most of whom are in recovery themselves, who will help you get through this transitional period.

The process can be very difficult, and not everyone succeeds the first time. If you don’t make it through, don’t get discouraged. If you have made the commitment to seek recovery, you must attempt again until you can complete the process.

Withdrawal symptoms can be unpredictable. With medical supervision, you can feel confident that you’ll be safe even during the most difficult phases of detox. This will minimize the chance of complications while greatly reducing the risk of relapse.
