Top-Rated Drug Detox Program for Residents of Irvine

It’s easy for some people to think that addiction is caused by poor life choices, but medically, addiction is understood as a mental health disorder. This has several implications, including seeing recovery from addiction similarly to recovering from other chronic illnesses and relapse health problems. At Muse Treatment, we understand the need for professional treatment and one of the first aspects of recovery is a drug detox program.

Through our top-rated drug detox program for residents of Irvine, you can gain professional assistance to help you to cope with the early stages of recovery: withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms can be so intense that even if you want to stop using a drug, it may feel impossible due to the overwhelming symptoms that set in just hours after the last use.

While normally you may struggle to get through drug detox, with our medical detox program, you can make it through with minimal discomfort and in the safety of our rehab facility. The prescription medication that you’ll be given throughout the detox process can drastically improve outcomes because the symptoms are counteracted by the medications, allowing you to break the physical hold that drug abuse has.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call Muse Treatment Center today. Our expert addiction specialists are standing by ready to speak confidentially with you. Call (800) 426-1818 today.

What is Detox Like?

In a non-professional setting, drug detox can be an extreme condition. For example, prescription pain relievers and heroin detox is often described as having some of the worst flu-like symptoms you can imagine together with intense cravings. Stopping by yourself is a far worse experience than using a medical detox program.

 In our drug detox program for Irvine residents, detox is far easier to get through. Not only do you have the constant support of our healthcare professionals but you have access to medications that specifically counteract the effects of the drug. Oftentimes, the medications used will be a safe version of the drug that you abused, but without the intoxicating effect and the dangers of using the drug. The medications then act as a way to wean you off the drug at a more comfortable and safer pace so that the normal experiences of drug detox are negated for the most part.

In many cases, the medical detox will be carried out in our inpatient facility because your health and progress need to be monitored and it has the added benefit of removing you from potential trigger situations so that you don’t relapse. Prescribed medications used during detox are not the only medications that you’ll be given. Various over-the-counter medications will also be given to you as needed to help to manage some of the milder symptoms such as stomach cramps during opioid detox. 

While drug detox is an important part of recovery, it is the first step of recovery and not a cure for addiction. Once the physical hold that a drug has on you has been broken through the medical detox program for residents of Irvine, then our holistic treatments and behavioral therapy should be the next step. This will help to treat the true causes of addiction so that you can prevent a return to drug use in the months and years that follow.

How Long Does Detox Take?

Thankfully, detox doesn’t take that long to get through. At Muse Treatment and Recovery Center, you can expect your drug detox to take roughly 5 to 7 days to complete. This average detox time can be affected by personal elements such as how long you’ve been using drugs for, what type of drug it was, health conditions that you have before starting the detox, and how much of the drug you took regularly.

For most drugs, you can expect to start seeing withdrawal symptoms roughly 6 to 12 hours from last use. These symptoms are mild and you will likely be aware of what the symptoms are based on experience. Around day 3 of the detox, you will usually hit the peak of your symptoms, experiencing the more severe symptoms during this time. By day 5, you will start feeling much better but it may take around 7 days to feel more like yourself again.

After your 5- to 7-day detox, you will be prepared to enter into further drug treatment programs to learn how to prevent relapse, heal from your past or condition such as a co-occurring mental disorder, and become a part of a supportive sober community to help you remain sober and manage your addiction.
