We’re grateful they’re grateful.
If you are looking for a place to really try to change your life, Muse is a great place! The staff were all so in tune with what I was going through. If I ever had a problem, or was feeling like using, I could go to them and they'd talk to me. It didn’t matter what time of the day or night it was. I had never had people who cared about me so much that weren’t family. I still stay in touch with people I went through the house with, we go to meetings and go surfing and other things I never did when I was loaded. It’s a great life, and I really never thought I would be so happy.
I’ve been through 5 other detox programs and was pretty sure none of them would ever work. I decided to give it one more try before just resigning to being a junky the rest of my life. I found Muse and I have to say I am pretty surprised. I have over 8 months clean and it’s more time than I’ve had the last 11 years. All the groups were great, and the neuro-feedback was something I haven’t seen anywhere else. I still see my therapist and I am so happy. I am very grateful to Muse!
I never wanted to go to treatment. I always thought I could quit on my own. I tried myself dozens of times but always went back. I could stay quit for a day or two but never more. I didn’t know what to do. I thought I would die and never thought I could live without my drug. When I finally realized that I needed some help I was terrified. The staff at Muse really knew what I was going through. They had been through it themselves and showed me the way. I have never been sober this long in my life, and if I keep doing what I’m doing, what they taught me, I think I’ll stay sober.
I stayed at Muse Sober Living for two months. When I arrived I was very emotionally and spiritually sick. My drug and alcohol dependence nearly took my life on several occasions. The structure of being surrounded by others in recovery, having chores, going to meetings and never knowing when I would get tested helped me to stay sober long enough to let the program work me. Today I am grateful to say I am clean and sober for just under a year now. My life today, inside and out, is 180 degrees away in the right direction.
Muse utilizes an integrated approach to healing the brain. While most facilities focus on one general area, we emphasize a holistic, whole-brain approach in our drug rehab, alcohol treatment and dual diagnosis programs…

Muse Treatment offers residents of Beverly Hills one of the best alcohol detox programs in Los Angeles County.
Our clinicians custom tailor detox treatment plans for each of our clients, because everyone who enters our doors seeking relief from alcohol addiction comes to us with their own unique history of substance abuse and any related medical or behavioral issues. You deserve individualized detox support because the way you’ll react to alcohol withdrawal will be specific to you, whether in terms of any emotional distress, physical discomfort, or symptoms that only you might experience.
The expert, accredited staff at Muse Treatment takes a whole-patient approach to alcohol detox and subsequent addiction rehab treatment. Alcohol use disorder is a brain disease that’s chronic but treatable. The disease can affect every aspect of your being, from your mental state to your emotional and physical well-being.
Going through withdrawal from alcohol is just the beginning stage that will lead to addiction rehab and recovery, though it’s often very difficult to take the first step you need to take, which is calling Muse Treatment to ask for help.
At Muse Treatment, our clinical staff takes a whole-person approach to care for our clients undergoing alcohol detox with us. There is more to the alcohol withdrawal process than simply keeping our patients comfortable from the physical side effects of withdrawal they may experience during detox. Our aim is to treat every aspect of a person’s physical, mental and emotional reactions to alcohol detox. Undergoing medically assisted detox at Muse Treatment, followed by one of our premier alcohol rehab programs, are what makes us known as a top-rated alcohol detox program for Beverly Hills residents.
The patient testimonials found on the Muse Treatment website attest to the positive differences our teams have made in the lives of those afflicted with an alcohol use disorder.
On a national accreditation level, The Joint Commission for Mental Health has awarded Muse Treatment not only full accreditation but also they’ve given us the Gold Seal of Approval for ongoing improvements achieved in client care. This is a highly recognized mark of quality in the field of addiction services.
When you’ve been drinking alcohol heavily over a long period of time, your body develops a tolerance to this substance. Your body’s gotten used to taking in a certain amount of alcohol, and it no longer provides you with the same feelings of relaxation or ‘high’ that those same dosages used to.
Eventually, you need to ingest more and more alcohol in a sitting to feel the same effects that it once delivered or simply to feel ‘normal’. You’ll need to drink just to be able to function if you’ve built up a tolerance through addiction.
Alcohol activates the brain’s neurotransmitters known as GABA receptors, causing those feelings of relaxation and reducing anxiety and fear, in fact, diminishing your brain activity. Your body and your brain become used to alcohol being consumed on a regular basis.
The balance between GABA and another neurotransmitter, glutamate, can become upset when you stop drinking, causing you to suddenly feel symptoms of withdrawal, such as anxiety and other upsetting feelings, because you’ve not ingested the alcohol that’s been stimulating GABA all along.
Alcohol detox can cause withdrawal symptoms while your system begins to return to normal functioning and proper neural balance. It can be dangerous to suddenly stop drinking alcohol on your own, without medical supervision. At-home alcohol detox has the potential to cause severe withdrawal symptoms, such as seizures, hallucinations, fever, and delirium tremens (DTs), some of which can be life-threatening.
It’s much safer and highly advisable to undergo alcohol detox at an accredited addiction treatment center offering medication-assisted detox. Muse Treatment has an excellent alcohol detox program designed to address your withdrawal symptoms safely and comfortably under the constant supervision of a clinical professional team.
Our detox programs are designed to create a supportive and nurturing environment for individuals going through the challenging process of alcohol detox. We believe that a strong support system is crucial for a successful recovery journey. Here’s how we offer support:
Comprehensive counseling services are a cornerstone of our alcohol detox programs. Our counselors are trained to address various aspects of addiction and recovery, including:
Long-term alcohol addiction, often referred to as alcohol use disorder (AUD), is a chronic condition characterized by an inability to manage or cease alcohol consumption despite negative social, occupational, or health consequences. It’s a complex interplay of various factors, including genetic, psychological, and environmental influences. Here are some key aspects of long-term alcohol addiction:
Prolonged alcohol abuse can lead to numerous health problems. Liver diseases such as hepatitis and cirrhosis are common, as alcohol is a hepatotoxin. Other issues include heart disease, increased risk of stroke, and digestive problems. Alcohol can also weaken the immune system, making the body more susceptible to diseases.
Withdrawing suddenly from alcohol use can cause mild, moderate, or severe, even life-threatening, effects. At Muse Treatment, we are equipped to get you through this trying period in a safe atmosphere, with a dedicated, compassionate staff by your side.
Our fully licensed center and its medical team are able to provide you with FDA-approved medications to help you deal with withdrawal symptoms and any complications that may crop up during your alcohol detox. Whether you require benzodiazepines, sedatives, or other over-the-counter medications to help you feel more comfortable, be assured that we’ll accommodate your needs.
During detox, you may also need extra nutrition and fluids as your body starts to heal. Our team will be able to offer you IV saline and vitamins to ensure you remain in good health during alcohol detox.
Depending on your medical history, the severity of your alcohol use disorder (AUD), and how long it’s been ongoing, detox can take about 5-7 days to complete. Most of your withdrawal symptoms will dissipate by the fifth day of detox for most people.
Between 6 and 12 hours after you’ve had your last drink, you can expect to experience your first withdrawal symptoms. You may have felt these symptoms in the past if you went this length of time without drinking. Perhaps you’ll feel some stomach discomfort, nausea, or not be able to get to sleep.
Between hours 12 and 48 after no alcohol ingestion, more intense symptoms may begin to set in, such as seizures or delusions, with the most difficult effects felt in days 2 to 3. Our team will be overseeing your condition around the clock, and they’ll be monitoring you for any sign of the DTs, a condition that will require medical assistance.
You’ll begin to feel a return to normal by the fifth day of alcohol detox. By the seventh day, most people are ready to begin participating in their Beverly Hills rehab treatment, the next stage of recovery from alcohol addiction.
1. 30-Day Program: Ideal for a shorter but intensive detox and stabilization period. It includes medical supervision, individual and group therapy, addiction education, and aftercare planning.
2. 60-Day Program: Extends care to two months, suitable for moderate to severe addiction. The first 30 days focus on detox, assessment, and initial therapy, followed by another 30 days of deeper therapy and relapse prevention.
3. 90-Day Program: The most comprehensive option for severe addiction or co-occurring issues. It includes a thorough 60-day detox and intensive therapy, followed by 30 additional days for personal growth, relationship building, and aftercare planning.
These programs provide structured support, ensuring a strong foundation for recovery based on the individual’s unique circumstances and addiction severity.
Medical supervision during alcohol detox is a critical aspect of the detoxification process, ensuring both safety and efficacy. Alcohol withdrawal can be unpredictable and, in some cases, life-threatening, making the presence of medical professionals essential. Here’s why medically assisted treatment is paramount in alcohol detox:
Alcohol withdrawal is a condition that occurs when a person who has been drinking excessively for weeks, months, or years stops or reduces their alcohol intake. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and they can occur as early as a few hours after the last drink. Here are some common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal:
It’s important to note that alcohol withdrawal can be life-threatening, especially in cases of Delirium Tremens. Medical supervision during detoxification is crucial, as healthcare professionals can provide medications and support to manage symptoms and reduce the risk of severe complications.
For individuals seeking assistance with alcohol detox in the Beverly Hills area, it’s critical to choose a facility like alcohol detox Beverly Hills that provides a safe, medically supervised environment to manage withdrawal symptoms effectively.
The early days of a recovery can be an especially challenging time, and staying active and engaged will be critical to how you do long term.
