Rehab Place Treatment Center- Call (626) 343-5174 and Get Help Immediately!
Detoxification Treatment Center West Covina is a safe, medically supervised facility that assists patients who are ready to take their first step towards recovery. Detoxification, or detox, gets rid of amassed substances and cleanses them from the body, which for many is a vital first step on the road to drug and/or alcohol treatment. Detox therapies vary depending on the drugs being abused. “Cold turkey” methods are not recommended, and can be risky for certain types of addiction; it’s best if detox is performed in a controlled, medically supervised environment. Although some people may find the prospect of detox frightening, California Detox Treatment takes every precaution to ensure that detox is safe and suitable for each and every client.

Kinds of Detox
The two types of detox most often used in detox facilities are: 1) medically supervised withdrawal; and 2) social detoxification. Health care specialists may select either one, depending upon:
- the type of drug being abused
- length of addiction
- age of the patient
- mental state of the patient
- physical well-being of the patient
- what setting the specialists think will be the most helpful to the patient
People who benefit the most from medically supervised withdrawal include people who are addicted to:
- pain medications (prescription or pharmaceutical)
- barbiturates or sedatives
- opioids (heroin, OxyContin7, codeine)
These drugs usually have very nasty, painful withdrawal symptoms, a lot of which can be reduced by certain detox medications that can only be prescribed by a physician. People that use drugs along with alcohol, or who have been suffering from severe alcoholism, are also recommended to participate in medically supervised withdrawal. Quitting alcohol “cold turkey” can make people hallucinate, seizure, or develop severe physical and mental complications, all of which can be circumvented by prescribed medications at a medically supervised detox facility. Medically supervised withdrawal is particularly advised for any person who has ever experienced hallucinations or seizures, has a serious illness, or has been diagnosed with particular psychological conditions.
Social detoxification is better suited for addicts who are expected to only experience moderate withdrawal symptoms, from substances such as:
- occasional opioid use
- occasional alcohol use
In this type of detox, clients are monitored by nurses and therapists who oversee the clients’ well-being, and try to help them during the cravings of withdrawal without the use of medicine. Social detoxification is a “social” process; that means clients are not sequestered in hospital-like rooms, but live alongside other patients as they detox. This model of detox readies people for a rehabilitation program wherein they’ll be living alongside and working with other people in recovery.
Rehab Place Treatment Center’s Techniques
Different substances are responsible for different kinds of withdrawal symptoms, which is why Detoxification Treatment offers such a wide range of detox services. Depressants (for example, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and alcohol) usually require a gradual reduction of the drug while at the same time administering medication to help with potential:
- high blood pressure
- high heart rate
- increased body temperature
Stimulants, such as amphetamines, methamphetamine, cocaine, and Ritalin, frequently have mild withdrawal symptoms that require only the emotional support from family members, loved ones, and therapists to get through. It’s not uncommon for habitual stimulants-abusers to be prescribed medication to avoid stimulant psychosis, which may lead to:
- suicidal feelings
- suicide attempts
Opiates (for example, heroin, morphine, codeine, and OxyContin) can have very minor to very dangerous withdrawal symptoms, including:
- runny nose
- quickening pulse
- rapid breathing
- bone pain
- muscle sensitivity
Take the First Step
For many users, detox is a necessary first step towards recovering from substance abuse, but it’s ONLY a first step, and won’t take the place of a comprehensive treatment program. Unlike some detox facilities, Detox Treatment Rehab West Covina, CA provides reinforcement during and after a detoxification treatment – they know how easy it is to relapse after becoming sober. If utilized in combination with rehabilitation and other drug and alcohol abuse therapy methods, Treatment Rehabilitation Recovery will be an efficient first step to recovering. An addict’s best possibility of complete recovery is to follow up detox by immediately entering a rehabilitation program, like Drug Rehabilitation Treatment.
