The Stages of Detox

Medical Detoxification Center in Dana Point

Detoxification is important for recovery, but it can also be one of the more initiating steps to overcome. Clearing your system of drugs and alcohol is physically, emotionally, and mentally taxing, but the end result of a healthier mind and body is worth it.

During detoxification, you will experience withdrawal symptoms. How these symptoms affect you depends on your medical condition, the substance(s) you consumed, how often you used them, and how long you used them. No two people will experience withdrawal the same way, so there is no “one-size-fits-all” detoxification program. This is why the Dana Point Rehab Campus creates a personalized detoxification plan for every client based on their specific needs.

At Dana Point Rehab Campus, we use a three-stage approach to detoxification:

  • EvaluationOur specially trained nurses will take the time to review history carefully, check vitals, examine your current condition for signs of withdrawal, and more. Our professionals will create a personalized detox program. Each program is continuously updated as patients progress through their detoxification, all the while ensuring both comfort and safety.
  • Stabilization – Our team regularly checks vitals and neurological status and carefully watches for the presence of potentially life-threatening symptoms like delirium, seizures, and high blood pressure. The detox process can last up to three weeks, depending on the severity of the withdrawal symptoms of each.
  • Transition – It’s what you do after detox that determines the extent of your sobriety. Every Dana Point Rehab Campus detox treatment program includes a thoughtfully-executed transition into a continuum of care, such as residential treatment. Once you’ve completed your detoxification program, you’ll be prepared to continue your recovery journey.
