When detoxing from drugs or alcohol, it is important to have professional oversight to avoid potentially dangerous and uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Medically assisted treatment (MAT) is a safe way to detox, while being watched over by clinical care workers.

Every person working on overcoming an addiction is different and requires a tailored plan to suit their unique needs, goals, and budget. Muse Treatment is the top-rated drug rehab center for people living in Mar Vista.

It is located in a beautiful, serene landscape, and is an excellent place to detox and rehabilitate, away from the stresses of your everyday life. The focus is on finding the root of your addiction, integrating mental health, substance abuse, and primary care services. At Muse Treatment, we offer effective treatment, customized to each individual client.

What is MAT?

Detoxing from drugs and alcohol is the first stage of addiction treatment, and it can sometimes require more than just quitting cold turkey. Depending on which substance you are detoxing from, symptoms and timelines vary. The length of addiction, family history, genetic makeup, and medical and mental health factors also affect the timeline and which withdrawal symptoms are experienced.

Detoxing can be uncomfortable, painful, and even life-threatening. As the body adjusts to the stopped drug use, patients may experience withdrawal symptoms like tremors, flu-like symptoms, and body aches, as well as psychological symptoms like depression. Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the preferred drug detox program to help with these symptoms. It includes the help of clinical staff who can monitor symptoms and administer medication to manage withdrawal symptoms. A supervised detox keeps patients safe.

At Muse Treatment, our clinical staff is available 24 hours a day, so you will have the care you need around the clock. The treatment program takes place in a comfortable, home-like environment. Licensed nurses are available during the day to oversee detox, and the head nurse is an addictions RN. Therapy and counseling are introduced early to help with emotional support, so we can achieve the best results possible. You will be constantly monitored by clinical staff to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms. Medications can be administered as needed, as it is important to us that no one should suffer.

After detox, it is recommended to remain in our inpatient rehab program, to gain the mental and physical health, the skills and tools, and the confidence to live an independent, sober life. Once you are ready to move on, we offer multiple outpatient options, and can give references to affiliated sober living homes. There is support every step of the way, that will set the foundation for a long-term, sustained recovery.

What to Expect During MAT?

At Muse Treatment, during our intake procedures, we screen for physical and mental health issues, and we do an in-depth interview, so we can get to know you as an individual. We will create a personalized plan to work towards your long-term rehabilitation and recovery success.

The next step is detox. The preferred approach for detox is MAT. You will stay in a Muse facility as an inpatient and be given medications to manage withdrawal symptoms. This method is especially important for those addicted to substances that have severe withdrawal symptoms, because some unsupervised withdrawal symptoms can be very uncomfortable, or even life-threatening.

During MAT, you will be given an FDA-approved, prescription amount of medication to satisfy drug cravings, without any euphoric highs, which will not create a new addiction. These medications have been proven to be successful in reducing the risk of relapse, while safely stopping withdrawal symptoms.

A supervised MAT detox provides counseling, support, and therapy alongside managing physical symptoms, and will help with depression or anxiety, restlessness, hallucinations, fatigue, nausea, discomfort, cravings, and more. Muse aims to provide a safe space for you to detox your own way and remain as comfortable as possible. Because everybody has different requirements and goals, the detox process is personalized to each patient, to improve effectiveness.

After detoxing, the next step will be a tailored, comprehensive rehabilitation plan, to help get to the root of your addiction. This will create success in your long-term recovery. You will learn strategies to sustain your sobriety long after rehab. Muse offers 30, 60, or 90-day residential rehab programs that will significantly reduce your risk of relapsing and teach you the skills you need to move forward in an independent, drug- and alcohol-free life.

Following this, you will transition to one of our extended outpatient and alumni programs, which can last as long as you need, so you can feel ready to take each new step as it comes, with new coping strategies, a new sober community, and a new outlook on life.
