Mission Viejo Drug Detox Center

Drug Detox Mission Viejo

Resurgence Behavioral Health Mission Viejo drug detox center has an addiction treatment that works. Our individualized treatment programs delivered in a relaxed and comfortable setting will help you heal and get strong again, and our continuum of care means we can help you no matter where you are in your recovery. You can begin treatment at any time, and you can move through levels of treatment, from detox to inpatient care to outpatient care, all within the same rehab center.

We use trauma-informed care at Resurgence, so as you detox and move into a rehab program you can rest assured that we take all our patients’ past experiences into account. Many people with substance use disorders have personal trauma that may be part of the reason they are using drugs in the first place, and through open communication, obtaining informed consent, and employing evidence-based therapy, we will earn your trust and ensure you feel safe as you work through your detox and begin to tackle psychological issues.

At Resurgence Behavioral Health we also provide support for your loved ones, so that they can learn the best ways to support and encourage you as you maintain your sobriety during and post-rehab. Family therapy can help you to reconnect and work through any issues that addiction may have caused in your relationships so that you can move forward together in a healthy and supportive relationship.

Drug addiction is usually determined when a person’s drug use becomes problematic and begins to interfere with their daily life, and you feel a physical or psychological compulsion to continue drinking or using drugs that can range from mild to severe.

It may be time to get professional addiction help when:

  • You notice you have cravings for the drug
  • You are overly concerned with planning how to get more and thinking obsessively about when you can use it next
  • You are prioritizing drinking and drug use over your old hobbies, your friends, and your interests
  • You are prioritizing drinking and drug use over spending time with loved ones or other important events
  • You have an increased tolerance, needing to take more to get the same effect
  • You are noticing withdrawal symptoms when you don’t use the drug
  • You are drinking or using the drug alone or in secret and feeling guilty about it
  • You are experiencing uncontrollable mood swings and irritability
  • You continue to use drugs and alcohol even though it is causing money trouble, relationship trouble and family issues
  • You continue to use drugs and drink even when it begins to cause health issues

If these signs sound familiar to you, there is effective help available, and contrary to what you may have heard, you do not have to suffer as you go through detox. Detox can be unpleasant, but at Resurgence Behavioral Health drug detox Mission Viejo, we offer a medically assisted treatment (MAT) program that will help you through the worst of your withdrawal symptoms and keep you safe as you go through this necessary step before you move on into rehab.

What is Drug Detox? 

Drug detox is what happens when you stop taking drugs and your body readjusts itself to the lack of chemical input those drugs had been providing. When you are chemically addicted to a substance, your brain changes, and you will find you become obsessed with the substance, with it taking over your life.

Detox is the process of allowing your body to adjust to the lack of drug in your system, and may produce uncomfortable, painful, or dangerous withdrawal symptoms, depending on which drug you are detoxing from, how much you were using and the frequency of use.

What to Expect from Drug Detox?

When you first enter the Resurgence Behavioral Health drug detox center, you will go through our intake procedures. These include an in-depth interview, a medical screening, and a physical exam. We will find out about your history with drug use and learn more about what you want to get out of your time with us, all of which will help us to formulate a customized treatment plan that will best suit you and help you stop using drugs for the long-term.

Common Drug Withdrawal Side Effects 

Different drugs can produce different withdrawal symptoms because they affect the body differently. Some of the most common withdrawal side effects include:

  • Anxiety or panic
  • Depressed mood
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Confusion and brain fog
  • Diarrhea and nausea
  • Excessive sweating
  • Muscle cramps and body aches
  • Headaches
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Psychosis

These symptoms can become painful and even life-threatening if left untreated. Addictions specialists and medical professionals should oversee any drug detox to ensure you remain safe as your body readjusts to not having the substance in your system anymore.

Benefits of Going to a Professional Drug Detox Facility

In a professional drug detox facility like Resurgence Behavioral Health, you have benefits like:

  • Medically Assisted Treatment programs with FDA-approved medications given at prescription doses to get you through detox as comfortably as possible without creating a new addiction
  • An integrated program during MAT that includes therapy and counselling to help you deal with any unwanted emotion during treatment, as well as dual diagnosis support if needed to treat co-occurring conditions
  • Your detox will be supervised by fully trained staff overseen by the head nurse, an addictions RN. They will make sure any medications you are prescribed are working as they are supposed to, and that you remain healthy and safe as you detox under our care.
  • Professional therapy is provided during medical detox, so that you can have full support as a whole person while detoxing. Addiction treatment is about getting to the root of the addiction, and therapy is the way to do this.
  • Access to groups during detox is provided, but not mandatory. Some people find it helpful to talk or listen to others, so they don’t feel alone in what they are going through.
  • Nutritionists and other health professionals are available, as well as a professional on-site chef, so the food you will be eating through detox and rehab will be healthy, with a customized diet plan to suit your specific needs.
  • The whole multidisciplinary team will be looking at the overall picture of your physical and mental health all at once, making it easier to find the root of your addiction, as well as treating co-occurring issues.

How Long Does Drug Detox Take?

In general, drug detox takes around one week, but it depends on factors like which drugs you are detoxing from, the frequency and amount you were taking each time, how you were using the drugs (smoking, ingestion, injection, snorting), and your personal health and history. If you are being treated for a co-occurring mental health condition like anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or depression, you may need longer to begin to adjust to any psychiatric medications you have been prescribed.

What Happens After Drug Detox?

Most recovery plans include a medical detox, followed immediately by a stay in inpatient care, and then outpatient rehab after that. This continuum of care will ensure you will have the time to find the root of your addiction through group and individual therapy and will allow you to grow and change as you begin to live your life in recovery. The outpatient programs available at Resurgence are flexible and can be customized to best suit your life and your schedule. Our programs are designed to be tailored to not only help you stop using drugs and alcohol, but also to help you plan for the future, and give you the skills you will need to succeed in your recovery and your life.

Drug Detox Mission Viejo

The Resurgence Mission Viejo drug detox center is a supervised facility, where you will be monitored to ensure you do not experience severe withdrawal symptoms. Medical detox is the best choice for anybody who has been:

  • Experiencing a lessening of the drug’s effect over time, needing to take more of the drug or drink more to feel the same effects
  • Using drugs and alcohol for a long period of time, or has been using them in large quantities
  • Having cravings for alcohol or drugs when they are not available to you
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when drugs or alcohol are not available to you
  • Trying to stop using the drugs or drinking, but being unable to
  • At Resurgence Behavioral Health we believe that once you overcome your physical dependence on drugs and alcohol you will better be able to focus on the next phase of your treatment: inpatient rehab or a partial hospitalization program.
