If you or a loved one is seeking treatment for substance abuse, it is important to know that long-term recovery does not begin with one single step. Detox is the first step in recovery from addiction. Removing toxic chemicals and overcoming withdrawal symptoms is vital. Detoxification heals the body so you can begin healing your mind. 

At Hathaway Recovery, we believe that detox is an essential first step in the process of overcoming addiction. In order to fully benefit from supporting therapies and other activities, you must first remove the drugs and alcohol through medical detox. The goal of our detoxification program is to remove harmful chemicals before beginning the psychological healing process.

What is Medically-Assisted Detox?

The purpose of drug and alcohol detoxification is to help clients safely manage drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal process is complex for a variety of reasons depending on multiple contributing factors. For example, some individuals may experience a brief withdrawal process, while others may experience months of acute withdrawal symptoms. Factors such as substance abuse, amount of time substances were abused, the severity of the addiction, genetic makeup, family history, and other underlying medical conditions contribute to the seriousness of drug and alcohol withdrawal. No matter how severe your withdrawal symptoms may be, Hathaway Recovery is here to provide the support you need for alcohol and drug detox.

Medical detox can be effective for a variety of addictions. Research indicates that over 41 percent of admissions to detox centers are for the treatment of alcohol abuse. Opiate drugs, including heroin and prescription painkillers, accounted for the most drug-related admissions, and marijuana was also responsible for a large number of cases.

The physical dependency that characterizes addiction is a result of chemical changes in the brain. These changes make it difficult and even dangerous for an individual to attempt to withdrawal from a substance without help. Tapering off the substance of abuse can lessen the severity of withdrawal symptoms, and some medications can reduce cravings and act as a temporary substitute for the original drug of addiction. As the patient becomes more ready to live a completely drug-free life, the substitute drug can be reduced and finally stopped

Benefits of Medically-Assisted Detox

When you make the decision to undergo drug and alcohol detox in Los Angeles, California, you will receive premier medically-assisted detox services. Medical professionals closely monitor each patient at the California detox center while also providing nutrition, hydration, and medication treatment if necessary. Studies have proven that the use of medications like Vivitrol and naltrexone are effective in helping clients make it through the detoxification period and into recovery much longer than clients who do not participate in medically-assisted detox. Other benefits of our California medically-assisted detox program includes:

Reduces physical and psychological stress resulting from drug/alcohol detox.

Helps mitigate uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms

Allows clients to focus on other important aspects of recovery without being distracted by withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Increases retention rates and encourages clients to complete detox without returning to their drug use intermittently.

Encourages individuals to participate in residential treatment because they know the period of detox will be more comfortable.

  • Hathaway Recovery Center is the real deal. They helped me find myself when I was completely lost. After I lost the mother of my child due to a tragic accident. The therapists and counselors truly cared. We made a relationship with each other that was unbreakable. The other clients were awesome roommates and true to me. The house managers were great and the living situations were awesome. If I ever even think about slipping up I’ll be returning. Today I have over one year clean.
