Medical Detox

The first step in recovery from addiction is entering a medical detox program. Detox is an important step in the recovery process because it allows your body to rid itself of the toxins that have built up over time due to your substance abuse. 

In general, detox can be a difficult process, which is why some people push off entering treatment. Throughout medical detox, South Coast will help you through the severe withdrawal symptoms so that you can finally get on the road to recovery. 

We are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

Medical Detox Program

South Coast Behavioral Health provides medically supervised, comprehensive substance abuse treatment programs with all of the necessary services and support to help individuals overcome addiction. Our medical detox program is designed to address physical withdrawal symptoms that can accompany early sobriety. 

To lessen the risks associated with alcohol and drug withdrawal, our medically-supervised detox programs are staffed with highly trained medical professionals who will be there to support you every step of the way. During detox at South Coast, you will gain a better understanding of your triggers and learn how to apply healthy coping skills to combat cravings. Without the constant fear of relapse or returning to past addictive behaviors, you can continue your journey toward health and happiness in recovery.

Within each medical detox facility in Orange County, California, we strive to make every client feel supported during their rehabilitation process. We want each client who comes through our doors to leave feeling empowered by newfound insight into their addiction. We also offer a variety of amenities that can help make the detoxification process as comfortable as possible, such as private rooms with televisions, daily housekeeping services, and meals prepared by our on-site chef.

What To Expect During Detox?

During the detoxification process, you remain in the comfort of our private, home-like, sub-acute drug detox centers. As you detox from drugs or alcohol, you have the time and space to begin your recovery journey with the highest level of respect and dignity. 

At South Coast, your safety is our top priority which is why our nurses regularly monitor your vital signs and offer comfort as you detox. As you detox from drugs and alcohol, you will also receive stabilizing care including thorough evaluations, 24-hour medical care, medication management, and symptom monitoring. 

If you require a medically-assisted detox with a taper to prevent life-threatening withdrawal symptoms, our highly skilled medical professionals will ensure your safety and comfort. Likewise, if you are in need of a medically supervised withdrawal with comfort medications, South Coast can help you start your recovery. Our around-the-clock care also enables us to attend to medical emergencies immediately.

It is important to note that the services provided within our medical detox differ from programs that include intensive and immediate emergency care. More specifically, our services are best suited for your situation if you are not actively experiencing severe, potentially life-threatening medical conditions that require acute care in a hospital. For example, if you are in severe psychological distress in which you become a danger to yourself or others, you may require treatment in a psychiatric hospital inpatient center.

Medically Monitored Inpatient Detox Services

Our detox level of care provides 24/7 care within our highly structured treatment program. For this reason, medical detox services benefit clients struggling with medical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive complications resulting from substance abuse.

Our medical detox services include:

At South Coast Behavioral Health, we’ll ease withdrawal symptoms with research-backed medications and approaches, and keep you safe and as comfortable as possible.
