Inpatient Alcohol Detox Los Angeles

Inpatient Alcohol Detox Los Angeles Resurgence Behavioral Health

What is Inpatient Alcohol Detox?

Inpatient alcohol detox provides Los Angeles residents with a safe environment to address the physical dependency that has been developed on alcohol over the course of their alcohol addiction. As your use of alcohol worsens and you begin engaging in alcohol abuse for long periods of time, your body becomes reliant on alcohol to be able to function throughout the day without experiencing negative side effects or withdrawals. In an attempt to avoid any negative side effects, individuals will continue to drink in order to mitigate any potentially unpleasant side effects from alcohol withdrawal. An inpatient alcohol detox Costa Mesa supports patients in overcoming the unpleasant or sometimes uncomfortable side effects of alcohol withdrawal through consistent medical supervision and therapeutic support. Patients will be offered a variety of addiction treatment methods that will not only target healing physically from your alcohol addiction but will also treat any co-occurring disorders and incorporate behavioral therapy or holistic treatments to ensure you are able to heal emotionally and mentally from your alcohol addiction.

Why Choose an Inpatient Alcohol Detox?

You may have attempted to overcome your alcohol addiction on your own previously but found that you were unsuccessful in your attempts due to a number of reasons, including temptations or triggers within your home environment, lack of support from loved ones, or not receiving the necessary addiction therapy support as you quit your use of alcohol. While many often wonder if they should quit their alcohol abuse cold turkey, it is recommended that you give yourself the comfort of having onsite medical professionals who will support you in safely removing the harmful toxins of alcohol from your body while monitoring your physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. For specialized care and support in this crucial phase, consider alcohol detox treatment in Riverside.

Los Angeles residents benefit from choosing an inpatient alcohol detox as it removes barriers to your success by removing you from your home environment that often contributed to your alcohol addiction. Residing within a residential addiction treatment program means that you will be able to remove yourself from the outside distractions and triggers that are associated with your alcohol addiction and allow you to be within a safe environment that enables you to focus directly on your alcohol rehab and alcohol detox program. Individuals will have the ongoing support of the addiction therapists and medical professionals on-site that are dedicated to giving you the support and guidance you need to successfully move through your alcohol detox program. Additionally, Los Angeles residents will be able to have peer support from fellow patients who will be not only going through the same process but also understand the need to support one another who have gone through similar hardships with their alcohol addiction. Oftentimes, patients are able to connect with one another and form strong, supportive relationships that often last long after you have completed your alcohol detox and inpatient alcohol rehab program. 

How Long Will Alcohol Detox Take?

Before embarking on your journey to get sober, many often ask how long their alcohol detox process will last, similar to queries about the duration of weaning off Zoloft. Your time in alcohol detox will depend on your specific history with alcohol abuse including how much you drank, how long you have been engaging in alcohol abuse, and the physical dependency that has been developed on alcohol over your period of alcohol addiction. Most patients will begin to experience the onset of mild withdrawal symptoms within 8 to 10 hours of their last drink and, typically, within 72 hours, patients will begin to feel the peak of their withdrawal symptoms often experiencing the most severe symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.

This process, much like weaning off Zoloft, needs careful monitoring and medical support. Patients will often experience a tapering off of the severity of alcohol withdrawal symptoms and will begin to feel healthy and stable within 7-10 days. Once you are feeling physically stronger and healthier along with free of alcohol withdrawal symptoms, you will be in a stable place to begin to address the underlying causes of your alcohol addiction with the support of an alcohol rehab program.

Medications that Can Make Alcohol Detox Easier

Alcohol withdrawal can create significant, unpleasant withdrawal symptoms and, in some cases, life-threatening side effects. In order to ensure that patients are able to have a safe, comfortable alcohol detox program, there are medical interventions that can be conducted including medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Medication-assisted treatment provides patients with specific, prescribed medications that support alleviating the severity of withdrawal symptoms while working to reduce any alcohol cravings. Medication-assisted treatment should be utilized in conjunction with other addiction therapies including behavioral therapy, or dual diagnosis treatment to support patients in healing from the physical and mental aspects of their alcohol addiction. 

Medications commonly prescribed and utilized within a medication-assisted treatment program are:


These medications are often provided to patients that are experiencing severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Benzos provide patients with the ability to ease the psychological symptoms to remain focused on achieving sobriety. 


works as a tool for relapse prevention as it helps patients avoid alcohol abuse once they are in addiction recovery. 


Supports patients in relapse prevention by causing severe and unpleasant side effects if you were to consume alcohol 


Work to block the reward circuit in the brain that produces feel-good emotions when alcohol is consumed 

What Happens After Alcohol Detox?

Once you have completed your time within the detox center and healed from the physical dependency on alcohol or drug, you will be ready to transition into an inpatient rehab program to focus on the emotions, thoughts, and behaviors linked to your substance abuse. Within inpatient treatment, patients are able to receive the individual treatment needed to address the root causes of their alcohol or drug addiction. Through various methods of evidence-based treatments including:

  • Cognitive behavior therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy 
  • Dual diagnosis treatment 
  • Life skill development 
  • Twelve steps addiction support groups 
  • Family therapy 
  • Tools for relapse prevention 

Your comprehensive individual treatment program will support you in gaining perspective on what has been at the core of your addictive behaviors all along while supporting you to form a newfound lifestyle in sober living. Patients can choose to reside in inpatient alcohol rehab for a period of 30, 60, or 90 days depending on their level of need and preference. Regardless of the length of time that you remain in alcohol rehab, you will be supported in creating an aftercare plan that will ensure you have the supports you need in place and develop a strong recovery community around you.
