You may have come to a point where your addiction is unmanageable. It’s affecting your work productivity, spousal and family relationships, and your overall mental and emotional health. If this sounds like you, it might be time to consider change. After acknowledging your debilitating addiction, the first step in a full continuum of care is a medically monitored alcohol and drug detox from Pure Life Recovery in San Clemente, California.

WHAT IS ALCOHOL AND DRUG DETOX?

The Washington Circle, which consists of policy experts in the substance abuse field, defines medically monitored detox as, “a medical intervention process that safely helps a substance abuser through the experience of acute withdrawal.” To get the fresh start to recovery you deserve, our experienced staff has to cleanse your body and get rid of those dangerous toxins. Upon entering Pure Life, we’ll give you a pre-treatment assessment to see if alcohol and drug detox is right for you.

We offer detox for:

  • Alcohol
  • Opioids (including heroin and prescription painkillers)
  • Benzodiazepines (including Valium, Ativan, Xanax)
  • Stimulants (including cocaine and amphetamines)

Attempting alcohol or drug detox without medical supervision is dangerous. Our experienced medical professionals know how to curb any treatment side effects.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING ALCOHOL AND DRUG DETOX

  • Substance used
  • Duration of use
  • Average dosage

Our professionals prescribe medications to minimize your discomfort during this process. Medications prescribed will depend upon your substance abuse history. We also monitor your health and nutrition to maximize your comfort during this process.
