Alcohol Detox in Laguna Beach

Find the Best Alcohol Detox in Laguna Beach

Alcohol addiction is characterized by a pattern of alcohol abuse becoming problematic. If you feel a physical or psychological compulsion to drink alcohol, are unable to stop drinking, or find yourself prioritizing drinking over other important events, people, and even your own health, you are likely addicted to alcohol. The first step to quitting is alcohol detox. Consider Resurgence for your alcohol detox in Laguna Beach.

When you are struggling with alcohol addiction, or know somebody who may be an alcoholic, you want to find the best possible help. Some important features to look for in an alcohol detox center include:

  • Do they offer a medical detox program? A medical detox program will keep you safe and comfortable as you detox, so you do not have to experience the worst of the withdrawal symptoms that come with stopping drinking.
  • Do they offer dual diagnosis treatment? A dual diagnosis treatment is highly beneficial for anybody with a co-occurring diagnosis because addiction and mental health are usually intertwined in some way. Treating everything at once will help get to the root of your addiction and allow you to move on in a healthy and safe way.
  • Do they offer inpatient and/or outpatient rehab options? Detoxing is only the beginning. It does not treat addiction. A combination of behavioral therapy, counseling, education, and other programs will help you to be able to fully enter a recovery state for the long term.

Resurgence is the best center for alcohol detox in Laguna Beach. We offer personalized treatment programs that can be changed and molded to best suit your individual needs. Our staff is highly trained and professional, and our amenities are top-tier.

Why Go to a Medical Detox for Alcohol Addiction?

Anybody who has an addiction to alcohol should consider medical detox. It is dangerous to attempt to quit alcohol on your own. Some withdrawal symptoms can become deadly if not supervised by a team of professionals. You should enter a medical detox program for Laguna Beach alcohol detox if:

  • You have been drinking in large quantities, also known as binge drinking
  • You have been drinking “just a few” drinks consistently for a long period of time
  • You have developed a tolerance for alcohol, needing to drink more to get the same effect
  • You have cravings for alcohol when you do not have access to it
  • You find yourself drinking alone or in the mornings, or needing it just to feel normal in the day
  • You have attempted to stop drinking but were unable to due to withdrawal symptoms

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

When you stop drinking alcohol your body

Some of the most common alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Anxiety and mood swings
  • Tremors
  • Uncontrollable sweating
  • Confusion or brain fog
  • Irritability
  • Nightmares
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headache
  • Increased heart rate

If you have been drinking alcohol over a long period of time, drinking very heavily/binge drinking, or if other health issues exist, your symptoms may escalate to delirium tremens (DTs). DTs are dangerous withdrawal symptoms, that include confusion and agitation, high fever and dehydration, seizures, and hallucinations like feeling like something is crawling under your skin, or seeing and hearing things that are not there. These symptoms can be life-threatening if not treated medically.

A Laguna Beach alcohol detox at Resurgence will keep you safe and prevent you from having to go through most of these unpleasant side effects. Our staff will be there, monitoring your progress 24 hours a day, so even though alcohol withdrawal symptoms can escalate quickly, somebody will be there to help you right away.

Medically Assisted Alcohol Detox in Laguna Beach

When you first enter our facility, we will do a screening for any co-occurring physical and mental health issues to determine whether a dual diagnosis treatment is necessary. We review drug, medical, and psychiatric history, so we can create a realistic long-term recovery plan, and we do an in-depth interview with you to find out more about your preferences and goals, along with your needs so we can create a detox and rehab program that best suits you and will help you to become the person you want to be.

You will then check in to our medical detox facility and live there full-time until your body has stabilized, and you are determined to be ready to move on into a rehab program.

During medical detox, you will be provided with prescription medications to help ease withdrawal symptoms. These medications are FDA-approved and are given under a doctor’s supervision. They will not create a new addiction. These medications will help you be able to get through the unpleasantness of detox as smoothly as possible, eliminating alcohol cravings, and helping you with detox symptoms like restlessness, aches and pain, and anxiety/panic.

Nearly 1/3 of people with an addiction to a substance have a co-occurring mental health condition, and we can provide additional psychiatric medications and targeted therapy to those with a dual diagnosis as part of a combined treatment program. All of our patients in detox are introduced to counseling and behavioral therapy early in the process so that we can help you to deal with any negative emotions that may come up, while we begin to get to the underlying cause of your addiction.

How Long Does it Take to Detox From Alcohol?

Most of our patients complete the medical detox process in around one week, but some factors may change your timeline, like:

  • If you were mixing the alcohol with other drugs
  • How long and how often you were drinking
  • The quantity of alcohol you were drinking in each session
  • Your unique body chemistry
  • Your physical and mental health as you enter the detox program

What Happens After Alcohol Detox?

Alcohol addiction is not solely biological and requires further treatment after detoxing is complete. At Resurgence, we recommend a 30 to 90-day stay in inpatient rehab, followed by an outpatient program so that you will be able to fully get to the bottom of your addiction, and then build yourself back up with continued, sober support from our staff as well as your peers.

Inpatient Alcohol Rehab in Laguna Beach

During your stay in our inpatient rehab facility, you will live in our peaceful, community-oriented rehab center, with direct access to a variety of therapy options. We will work alongside you to create a personalized treatment program that takes your needs, goals, and budget into account. Our comprehensive support and care, along with the safe and sober surroundings of inpatient rehab will help you treat your alcoholism as you rest and work towards meeting some of your life goals.

Outpatient Alcohol Rehab in Laguna Beach

Outpatient treatment is a flexible option for people who do not require or may not choose to enroll in a residential inpatient treatment program. With outpatient alcohol rehab, you will still receive a high-quality treatment program, but you will also be able to live at home if you wish, and go to work and school, or attend to your other responsibilities. Treatments will be scheduled in the evenings or on weekends, and we can customize your program to suit your ever-changing needs as time goes on.

In our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), anybody transitioning from inpatient rehab can still receive strong support, therapy, and guidance from staff, while using their recovery skills in the real world. This is usually a short-term, transitional step into an IOP and is a minimum of six hours/day, five to seven days/week of treatment.

In our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), you will be able to transition back into a normal daily life, while continuing to work on sobriety with the group and individual therapy, with a robust level of support.

Aftercare treatments can continue for as long as you need, with weekly treatment sessions and the option to book one-on-one therapy appointments and drop into groups as needed.
