What is Medical Detox?
Medical detox is a professional treatment that manages the physical symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal. People who use drugs and alcohol regularly in high amounts can become physically dependent — meaning their bodies eventually adapt and adjust to the presence of these substances. Quitting drugs and alcohol abruptly after becoming physically dependent can disrupt the body’s chemistry and trigger a range of mild to severe withdrawal symptoms. In some instances, drug and alcohol withdrawal can lead to death when taking place outside of a controlled medical setting.
California Rehab Campus uses evidence-based detox treatments that minimize the risk of withdrawal-induced complications. Patients who choose to detox at California Rehab Campus can receive quality treatment in a safe, controlled inpatient residential rehab environment where there are no distractions. FDA-approved medications are used to reduce and control withdrawal symptoms, while nutritious meals, yoga, and mindfulness meditation can be used to complement the therapeutic effects of detox treatment.
Detox programs at California Rehab Campus are customized for each patient based on factors such as the substances that were used, the length of time of drug use, and the presence of underlying health conditions. The length of your detox program will vary based on these same factors, and may last anywhere between a few days to several weeks. Our nurses and doctors will monitor you closely around the clock for the entirety of your detox program to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible.
