Detox

Detoxification: Take the first step towards recovery safely, supervised by our medical staff in our detoxification program. We prepare you for treating the addiction by first cleansing your body of the toxins that create dependence.

Detox is different for everyone, but it can be dangerous if not done within a proper facility with trained staff. As your body rids itself of toxins, withdrawal symptoms can be painful and frightening.

With Rise Up Recovery at our Dana Point facility, you never have to go through symptoms alone. Our staff guides you through your individualized detoxification process with nutritional meals and exercises to rid the body of toxins, allowing your body to heal from previous substance use and start down your new path in sobriety. 

Removing Toxins as the First Phase of Recovery

Detox is vital in creating a new life free from substances. Detox is the process of removing toxins from the body. Although uncomfortable at times, detox allows your body to heal from any damage, while also creating a fresh start for your body to function. Normalizing body function is always the first step towards long-term recovery.

The need to detox and how long the process will occur is dependent upon the substance abused and the amount remaining in the body when detox begins.

Medically Assisted Treatment is Safe and Effective

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the current standard to treat severe detox side-effects which can be fatal if not properly addressed. Examples of severe side effects are nausea and vomiting, seizures, heart palpitations, and hallucinations among others.  Substances with severe detox side effects include Alcohol, Benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, prescription opioids, and heroin. 

MAT Is Not for Everyone

Substances that are typically not recommended for MAT include:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
