Medical Detox in Orange County, Ca

Medically Supervised Detox

When someone decides to seek help for a drug or alcohol addiction, the first step is to safely remove the substance from their system.  In most cases this involves an uncomfortable, and sometimes dangerous, detox process.  Because of the medical complications that can arise from quitting drugs or alcohol, it’s important to do so under the careful supervision of medical experts.  

A medically supervised detox also lowers the risk of relapse because the addicted individual won’t have the option drinking or using again to mitigate the symptoms of withdrawal.  Detoxing at home can be dangerous and frightening.  Withdrawal symptoms don’t just affect a person’s body, but their mind as well.  If left to their own devices a person withdrawing from drugs or alcohol may become incredibly anxious or suffer from delusions that make them a threat to themselves or others.  Miramar Recover combines medical and psychiatric practices to help our patients attain a sober body and mind.

How Long Does Detox Last?

This can depend on several factors:

  • How much the patient has been drinking or using
  • How often, or how long, the patient has been drinking or using
  • A patient’s state of mind, or severity of psychological symptoms
  • The particular drug, or mix of drugs, that people were using and reliant on

Withdrawal From Alcohol

Alcoholism and alcohol abuse is a growing condition, with over 30 million adults reporting binge drinking at least once a week. 

Detoxing from alcohol is more dangerous than many people believe. An unsupervised detox from alcohol has the potential to be life-threatening.  The symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol can lead to many complications in both the psychiatric and physical realms. Symptoms can include shaking, sweating, hallucinations, delusions, seizures, and possibly even death. This is why a supervised detox is so important.

When someone is physically dependent on alcohol, every organ in their body becomes accustomed to the substance being in their system. So, when alcohol is taken away, the body begins experiencing a “shock”.  In order to get through this transition it is imperative to have experienced professionals who know what you’re experiencing and how to help.

Withdrawal From Drugs

Withdrawal from drugs can prove just as frightening as withdrawal from alcohol. After repeated use, Illicit substances and prescription medications wreak havoc on a person’s body.  When someone stops using the drugs that they have become dependent upon it is vital that they have appropriate supervision..

Miramar provides medically supervised detox from opioids, amphetamines, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, benzodiazepines, stimulants, barbiturates, and other prescription medications. 

Depending on the type of drug, or drugs, that someone is detoxing from, they may experience a wide range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.  In some cases, medication-assisted treatment may be necessary in order to safely overcome the the symptoms of withdrawal.  Our staff psychiatrists can help you focus on recovery by prescribing medications that can ease you off of harder drugs without the temptation of relapse or abuse.

Safely Treating Alcohol And Drug Withdrawal

To safely treat those with alcohol withdrawal symptoms and ensure that our clients can cope with them appropriately, we utilize a combination of medications and other therapeutic practices. These medications prevent dangerous physical reactions that occur during alcohol withdrawal, especially seizures and hallucinations.

Of course, treating the psychological symptoms of alcohol withdrawal is also essential. For this reason, the staff at our Orange Detox Center are available 24/7 for any client who may need to talk about what they’re experiencing, like anxiety from alcohol withdrawal.

Therapists are available for those experiencing distressing psychological symptoms, and psychiatrists are ready and available to treat any underlying mental illnesses that may comorbidly exist with someone’s substance abuse disorder.

Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms

Once someone has finished with the detox process, post-acute withdrawal symptoms can remain. These symptoms can last for several months or even more in some cases. These are some of the symptoms of post-acute withdrawal:

  • Mood Swings
  • Anxiety
  • Tiredness/lethargy
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia or the ability to sleep adequately
  • Decreased concentration
