Detox

What is Medical Detox?

A medical detox is a process by which medications and nutritional support are used to help ease the symptoms of withdrawal. Medications are administered to patients by a team of highly skilled medical staff. The use of any of these medications is monitored. A medical detox program is structured for the safest tapering process in order to provide comfort and allow individuals to detox their bodies in the way that is right for them.

NEED

Drug Detox

What is Drug Detox?

Drug Detox is a process in which your body rids itself of the harmful chemicals and toxins that have built up overtime. Certain drugs, like opiates, alcohol, and benzodiazepines, cause a physical dependence. It is always recommended to enroll in a drug detox program before starting an inpatient treatment program .

A person dependent on drugs often experiences fear around detoxication and treatment. The person may fear the loss of the drug itself, but also the possibility of undesirable physical, emotional, and mental effects during the detoxification process.

This is why a drug detox at LA Treatment Center is recommended. Our team of medical professionals will supervise your detox process and give you medications to ease the symptoms of withdrawal. This is often known as a medical detox.

At LA Treatment Center you will recover in comfort and be provided with additional services such as individual and group therapy, clinical assessments, a private chef, nutrition education, as well as emotional wellness through a variety of activities and amenities.

Long

How Long Is A Drug Detox?

The amount of time a drug detox will take is dependent upon what substance or substances the person is taking and also their individual medical history and chemical make-up. There is no set timeframe for detox.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAHMSA) reports that the average length of detox is fewer than eight days. However, some substances take longer to detox from – especially methadone or a benzodiazepine, like Xanax, valium, or Klonopin.

If you are detoxing from a drug that may not require a medical detox, the amount of time for the substance to leave your body could be a few days. Some drugs only cause a physical dependence. But, most drugs cause a mental and emotional dependence. This is why a drug detox is only the first step in the recovery process as the emotional and mental dependence will need to be addressed as well.

The factors that dictate the amount of time a detox will take include:

The drug of abuse

The rate, duration, and dose of use

The presence of other substances and/or poly-substance abuse

The detox setting

The medical history of the person who is in need of detox

The individual’s heath condition

Need

Do I Need Alcohol Detox?

If you have become physically dependent or addicted to alcohol, it is important that you complete an alcohol detox program before starting a program at an inpatient treatment program. Quitting alcohol on your own is extremely dangerous and in some instances, it can cause seizures, delirium triggers, and even death.

If you abruptly stop drinking alcohol after consistent abuse, you can experience severe withdrawal symptoms. It is not recommended to attempt an alcohol detox at home if you are a daily drinker or dependent on alcohol. The best path is to enroll in a medically-assisted detox so you can be safe and comfortable during the alcohol detox process.

The comprehensive treatment approaches offered through our detox and rehab services cover all facets of drug addiction and alcohol dependency, utilizing an informed care model developed in-house to address any chronic pain problems with non-addictive medical supplementation like IV amino acid therapy.

Long-term effects of alcohol abuse are very dangerous and crippling. Every aspect of your life will be adversely affected if you do not address your alcoholism.

Some of the most pressing problems directly caused by alcoholism are;

Significantly decreased longevity

Cardiovascular or heart problems

Nervous system problems like stroke

Chronic insomnia

Liver disease

Respiratory problems

Severely weakened immune system

Cancer

Renal problems

Significantly crippled economic, social and financial progress
