Detox is a process that allows a person to safely and systematically withdraw from alcohol or other addictive drugs.
The continuous usage of alcohol and drug over time can result in a profound physical dependence upon these substances. Discontinuing usage, especially for those using high dosages and/or using for long periods of time, can cause uncomfortable and dangerous, even fatal, withdrawal symptoms in the addict or alcoholic.
The detoxification process at Laguna Trails is made as comfortable as possible through designing the detox plan for the specific substances and situation of the client. Special care and attention are paid to physical withdrawal symptoms through the appropriate use of proper medications and other detox support systems.
The detox process begins with a comprehensive medical evaluation and psychological assessment performed by our clinical team. The detox process can last anywhere from 3 – 10 days, depending on the substance and severity of abuse.
