What is Inpatient Detox?

Addiction is a complex disease that creates physical and emotional dependency within the user the longer you engage in substance use. While you would be hard-pressed to find someone that aspired to develop a drug or alcohol addiction, it happens to millions of Americans across the nation, and Los Angeles residents are not immune to the grave effects of substance abuse. You know that you want a better life for yourself that is free of the hardships of alcohol and drug addiction but there is uncertainty about how you can overcome your addictive behaviors. The first step towards a life in sobriety is to allow your body to detox from the substances you have been using. As you cleanse your body of the harmful toxins, it is normal for patients to experience withdrawal symptoms as their body is fighting to find a healthy balanced way of functioning without the influences of chemicals and toxins. For some, you may have attempted to stop their use of drugs and alcohol on their own without the support of medical professionals or addiction counselors and found that they were unsuccessful in their DIY attempts to get sober due to the unpleasant side effects of drug or alcohol withdrawal or the strong cravings that arose for you. This doesn’t reflect on who you are as a person or indicate that you don’t have what it takes to get sober, it simply means that you need the support and guidance of addiction specialists through an inpatient detox program.

Inpatient detox provides patients with an opportunity to rid their bodies of the harmful toxins of drugs or alcohol under the supervision of nurses and doctors who specialize in safe, effective practices for alcohol or drug detox. As you navigate your way through the detox process, you will have the ongoing support of our compassionate counselors and clinicians who will help you overcome the physical dependency of addiction while helping to free you of the emotional and behavioral dependencies of your addiction. Resurgence Behavioral Health offers Los Angeles residents an inpatient detox facility that focuses on the individual needs of each patient through comprehensive, customized approaches to drug and alcohol detox Costa Mesa and rehab that empower each patient to achieve personal growth and reach their goals for life in sobriety. 

In order to provide each patient with an effective detox program, patients will meet with one of the onsite physicians or nurses to complete an initial assessment and admission paperwork. During this time, the team at Resurgence will gain an understanding of your history of substance misuse, any preexisting co-occurring disorders that may have impacted your addiction, and your family history of drug and alcohol abuse. This information informs our team of what level of support you will require to safely detox from substances to ensure that your time with us is comfortable and safe. 

Alcohol Detox

Alcohol is one of the most commonly used substances across the United States and the use of alcohol has become normal within the modern-day culture. This often can create challenges for individuals to determine when their use of alcohol has become problematic and needs to be addressed. When your use of alcohol has begun to negatively affect your daily living and routine, it is time to address your alcohol dependency within an alcohol detox and rehab program

Alcohol addiction creates physical, emotional, and behavioral dependencies within the individual. Aloha detox works to address and mitigate the physical dependencies as your body eliminates the influences of alcohol from its system and works to readjust normal body functioning without alcohol present. During this time, patients will feel withdrawal symptoms as their body is working in overdrive to adjust its functioning. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms will be individual to each patient and will depend on a variety of factors for the severity of symptoms experienced including the length of time you have been drinking alcohol, the frequency in which you drank alcohol, and the quantity you would consume within one time.  The most common alcohol withdrawal symptoms are:

  • Anxiety 
  • Mood swing
  • Tremors
  • Excessive sweating
  •  Confusion
  • Insomnia 
  •  Irritability
  • Nightmares
  •  Difficulty sleeping
  • Headache
  •  Increased heart rate
  • Depression

For Los Angeles residents that have been engaging in alcohol misuse for an extended period of time or partake in heavy drinking, there is a higher risk of experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms known as delirium tremens (DTs). If DTs go untreated by medical professionals, patients are at high risk of serious, sometimes potentially life-threatening, withdrawal symptoms including 

  • Confusion and agitation
  • High fever
  • Visual, audio and tactile hallucinations
  • Light and sound sensitivity
  • Heart problems
  • Seizures

Drug Detox

Drug addiction takes a variety of forms, whether it be illicit narcotics or prescription drugs, these substances are highly addictive and can quickly impact your day-to-day life before you know it. While many want to jump right into understanding what is at the root of your addiction through addiction therapy, it is important that you are of sound body and mind to delve into the emotional and behavioral connections to your addiction. This means that you need to take the initial step of entering into drug detox to safely remove the harmful toxins of drugs from your body to release the physical dependency that has been developed on your drug of choice. 

Depending on which substance you have been using, your withdrawal symptoms will vary in symptoms and severity. Our team of medical professionals within Resurgence is well versed in safe, effective methods of drug detox to ensure that your time with us is comfortable and secure. As you experience withdrawal symptoms, our team of medical professionals will provide you with various treatment methods and interventions including holistic therapies, behavioral therapy, and medication-assisted treatment if needed. 

Common withdrawal symptoms from drugs are:

  • Strong drug cravings 
  • Difficulty sleeping or insomnia 
  • Nausea.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Flu-like symptoms.
  • Muscle cramps/body aches.
  • Anxiety 
  • Excessive sweating.
  • Hot and cold flashes.
  • Depression
  • Hallucinations-  audio, visual, or tactile 
  • Increased heart rate 
  • Seizures  

How Long Does Detox Take?

Each individual patient has their own unique history of drug use which means that your time in detox will be dependent on your unique circumstances with substance misuse and multiple compounding factors. If you have used drugs or alcohol for an extended period of time, your time in detox will most likely take longer than someone who has just recently begun their substance use. While we typically see patients will spend approximately 7-10 days in inpatient detox this can vary depending on the person. Most patients will begin to experience the onset of mild withdrawal symptoms after 8 hours since your last drink or use of drugs. From there, patients will often experience the most severe withdrawal symptoms within days 2-3 of detox. Symptoms will often decrease as the days go on and you begin to regain your health and strength. 

We understand that Los Angeles residents will often have reservations about the detox process as they have heard stories about the severe withdrawal symptoms that can ensue. It is important to remember that our compassionate team at Resurgence will be alongside you every step of the way and checking in about your progress with drug detox to ensure that you are being provided with the highest level of care you need to get through your detox and continue on down the path to sobriety. 

What Happens After Inpatient Detox?

Once you have successfully removed the physical dependency on drugs and alcohol, you will be ready to begin to look deeper into what has been at the root of your addiction all along. At this time, you will be invited to participate in an alcohol or drug rehab program that will utilize the latest addiction therapy methods to assist you in healing from the emotional wounds of the past to pave the way for a future in sobriety.

Alcohol and drug treatment will incorporate methods of behavioral therapy that will guide patients to developing new life skills and habits that foster a healthy life in sobriety. Through methods of cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and dual diagnosis treatment, Los Angeles residents will be able to identify the emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that have impacted their ability to remain sober. Through individual and group therapy sessions, you will learn how to reshape these patterns as a method of relapse prevention and managing potential triggers. Addiction treatment is the time for patients to create a new healthy lifestyle that is equipped with the tools and skills that they will need to lead a successful, fulfilling life in sobriety.
