Addiction is a crippling condition that affects every area of your life: health, relationships, employment, and finances. It can reduce your enjoyment of each day, as you are drawn to figuring out when your next drink is or when you will have your drug of choice again.

However, addiction doesn’t own you and you can break the bondage it has over you through treatment programs from licensed medical professionals and counselors. One way to help in achieving long-lasting recovery is with our Drug and Alcohol Detox in Orange County, which is among the treatment programs you can find at Experience Recovery.

Why home-based detox won’t work

Detox (detoxification) is the removal of addictive substances from your body, of which the person experiences the effects of withdrawal as their body rids the substance from itself. Because the realization of being addicted to drugs and/or alcohol can be difficult for some people, as is the withdrawal process, some will choose the option to detox in the comforts of their homes.

However, this can make for an unsafe situation as you can be vulnerable to overdose because your body and mind are most at risk during detox for making risky choices.

When you are going through detox, you will experience withdrawal symptoms that can be very difficult to manage alone. The following are common symptoms of withdrawal:

  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Aches
  • Fatigue

Without the proper medical supervision to monitor you as you go through detox, which could take several days to complete, you could be at the risk of a fatal overdose. That is why it is better to get help at a reputable facility for Drug and Alcohol Detox in Orange County.

What to expect during our Drug and Alcohol Detox in Orange County

One thing to realize as you prepare for drug and alcohol detox is that you aren’t alone in this journey. It is a collective effort to make sure you get sober and stay sober to regain your life again. 

The detox treatment centers are separated into individual campuses to help those detoxing from drugs and from alcohol. Each comes with 24/7 monitoring to make sure you handle your withdrawal from drugs and/or alcohol in the safest and most comfortable way possible.

As you are being admitted to Experience Recovery, you will meet with our addiction specialist physician to discuss and set up a personalized treatment plan best suited for your needs. You then will have 24/7-monitored care by licensed medical professionals as you detox to ensure you are okay and have proper medication if needed to bring you comfort in this crucial time.

Data-proven methods are used to treat those going through the drug detox process, with services backed by science to show they are effective, healthy, and manageable. Those who are addicted to opiates, stimulants, methadone, and benzodiazepines can find the help they need through our doors.

Our alcohol detox treatment center also comes with 24/7 monitored care by licensed medical professionals, who will check on you every thirty minutes for the first seventy-two hours that you are there to make sure you have what you need to be safe and comfortable while detoxing.  

How long you will be detoxing is different from person to person, as some will stay three to five days and reach recovery to some staying as long as ten to fifteen days before they have completely detoxed. After detox, the next step will be on-site residential care.

Why choose drug and alcohol treatment facilities instead of hospitals

Although hospitals are equipped to help people with a wide range of physical needs, many are not able to help those going through the detoxification process, sometimes due to limitations in staff or services. 

With treatment facilities, people can have personalized care and treatment plans that will reach them where they are at for Drug and Alcohol Detox in Orange County.

Facilities like Experience Recovery have on-staff addiction specialists, doctors, counselors, and other medical providers to help with the detox process, whether prescribing medications to help withdrawal symptoms or developing what the next steps are in treatment after detox is finished.

Treatment facilities come with everything that a hospital offers of care for your health but with more specialized assistance and attention to not only help with recovery but to get to the root cause of the addiction to encourage long-lasting sobriety.

Can detox alone lead to recovery?

Some might wonder if just going through the detox process will ensure that you get to long-lasting recovery, believing that going cold turkey is enough to ensure lifetime sobriety.

However, our Drug and Alcohol Detox in Orange County can only really help if it is followed by a Residential Treatment, which lasts from thirty to ninety days after detox, as well as outpatient care, a partial hospitalization program, transitional living, and aftercare. 

Drug and Alcohol Detox in Orange County, CA

The focus is not just to rid the harmful drugs or alcohol from your body but to discover new ways to cope with life that was handled before with drugs or alcohol. Steps will be taken to learn what to do about cravings, what triggers you might find once you are back to regular life again, and how to prevent relapse in the future.

There is also therapy to help, from group to individual to family, so what caused the need to use drugs or alcohol can be addressed and healing can begin.

Although detox is one of the most challenging aspects of pursuing addiction recovery, you need to also have the community, the care, and the guidance to know how to handle the other challenges on the road to lifetime sobriety.
