What is Medical Detox?

Detoxification is one of the most important first steps to sobriety. Upon arrival, our nursing staff will get you settled in, and our MD will supervise a full medical evaluation. From there, our MD will create a tailored medical detox program that’s suited for your needs. For the duration of the program, our nursing staff will be available to help you manage detox and withdrawal symptoms.

Detoxification is the process of naturally removing harmful, toxic substances from the body. You’re eliminating your dependency on these addictive drugs and substances, and during this process, you will likely experience some range of withdrawal symptoms. Our job is to help you safely manage these symptoms as you come off of any dependency. 

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to detoxification. You may detox differently than others, which is why we first evaluate your current state and medical history to create a program that’s catered to your biology and the substances you used. We may give you comfort medications to reduce the severity of any withdrawal symptoms, and our Beverly Hills medical detox nursing staff will be available 24/7 to provide any needed medical support during the process. As you detox, we’ll also evaluate your progress, monitor medication management, and log vitals throughout the day. Whether it’s a drug detox or an alcohol detox (or a mixture of the two), our program’s goal is to safely remove toxins from your body.

What To Expect From Medical Detox

What Are Some Symptoms of Medical Detox?

Symptoms of medical detox can range depending on several factors, but can be narrowed down to specific symptoms depending on drug or alcohol use. Some common symptoms are:

  • Restlessness
  • Discomfort
  • Nervousness
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Mood Swings
  • Poor Sleep
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia

 

How Long Do Detoxification Symptoms Last? 

Detox can range in length of time and intensity depending on the following factors:

  • Drug Use
  • Alcohol Intake
  • Length of Use
  • Method of Use
  • Family History
  • Underlying medical conditions
  • Medication Conditions

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Detox Programs

What happens during your detox program? 

The detoxification process requires the utmost care and attention. When you first arrive our medical will screen your physical and mental health. We’ll take blood tests to determine the amount of drugs in your body, ask you questions regarding your history of substance abuse, get an understanding of any potential mental health issues, and discuss your psychiatric history. We get you settled in, start your medical protocols, and vigilantly monitor your progress. 

How long does the Medical detox process take? 

The process typically takes 2-7 days, but it can take longer depending on the substance you are detoxing from. 

Is detoxing at home dangerous

Admitting yourself into a quality drug addiction treatment center is the best way to safely detox from drugs and alcohol. Detoxing at home can be dangerous because you won’t be medically supervised, nor will you have access to comfort medications. Due to medical variability, we cannot guarantee complete safety, but it is far safer to detox in a clinical environment than at your home.

3 Pronged Approach:

Evaluation

Upon arrival, all clients go through a screening process that addresses immediate health concerns caused by alcohol and substance abuse. The screening process is a series of extensive questions addressing medication history, substance abuse issues, and mental health and psychiatric history. We believe a thorough understanding of the events leading to drug rehabilitation is vital in creating the detox and treatment plan.

Stabilization

Every client at 90210 Recovery works directly with a licensed MD and Psychiatrist to develop a medical detoxification plan. Licensed nurses oversee the daily medication management and log vitals throughout the day or can do routine checks as soon as every 15 minutes depending on acuity.

Individualization

It is important to recognize that clients may be receptive to different detox or therapeutic modalities depending on history of substance abuse and mental health. At 90210 Recovery, each client has a treatment team assigned to them specifically to determine measurable treatment objectives during their treatment stay. Some treatment objectives might include addressing legal issues or relational issues caused by addiction.
Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT)

MAT is customized to meet each individual patient’s needs, addressing symptoms and severity of withdrawal. MAT ensures successful recovery from opioid use disorder and alcoholism by:

  • Helping to sustain long-term recovery
  • Decreasing and preventing withdrawal symptoms
  • Reducing the risk of relapse
  • Improving quality of life
  • Eliminating the need for hospitalization
  • Helping patients to healthily handle anger, anxiety, and substance abuse
  • Reducing criminal activity related to both opioid-use disorder and alcohol-use disorder
  • Decreasing cravings for opioids or alcohol
  • Reducing illicit drug use
  • Reducing the likelihood of overdosing
  • Increasing retention in treatment
  • Helping those who resist medications
  • Reducing the risk of transmitting infectious diseases via injections, such as hepatitis C and HIV
  1. Suboxone

Suboxone is the combination of two different drugs: buprenorphine (a partial opioid agonist) and naloxone (a pure opioid antagonist). Buprenorphine provides a way for an individual to taper off of whatever opiod the client is addicted to. As an agonist, the main function is to attach to opiate receptors without activating them. According to the National Alliance of Advocates for Buprenorphine Treatment, a full agonist activates the opioid receptors and produces the full opioid effect. Examples of full agonists include: Percocet,  Heroin, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Fentanyl, Morphine, Methadone, Opium and more.

At 90210 Recovery, our process is to carefully assess history of use and create a taper schedule that will gradually wean the individual in a safe and comfortable way. Depending on drug of choice and pattern of use, a standard opiate detox can range 7-10 days.

  1. Sublocade

Sublocade has become an option that clients are starting to use more. Sublocade is buprenorphine extended release and is administered through a shot done 1x monthly. Some clients opt for this for several reasons. Some clients may choose this due to a history of feeling triggered by having to still depend on a medication. This can have an impact on the individual’s ability to separate still feeling reliant on a “daily dosage” of a medication similar to opiates.

  1. Vivitrol (Naltrexone)

Naltrexone is commonly used to prevent opioids from working in the body and belong to the group opioid antagonist. According to WebMd, Naltrexone shouldn’t be used with other opiate blockers such as suboxone or methadone. Naltrexone is meant to be taken consistently as well as in tandem with therapy or group counseling.

What are common uses for Naltrexone?

  • Reduce opiate cravings
  • Beneficial for chronic behavior disorders
  • Can be effective in getting rid of certain infection
