Alcohol Detox Program

Alcohol use disorder is a serious health condition that often needs intensive professional treatment. If you want to quit drinking, doing so inside a detox center is much safer than quitting alone. It is never advised to quit drinking cold turkey. Stopping alcohol use should always be done under medical supervision, as the withdrawal symptoms can range from uncomfortable to deadly in some individuals in a matter of a few hours. Common physical symptoms that are experienced during alcohol detox are:

  • Strong alcohol cravings
  • Headaches and body aches
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Shakiness and hand tremors
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • sweating/clamminess
  • You may also experience psychological symptoms like:
  • Insomnia and nightmares
  • Anxiety or agitation
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Confusion
  • Hallucinations
  • Some of the more dangerous withdrawal symptoms are:
  • High fever
  • Seizures
  • Delirium tremens

These may become life-threatening if not treated right away, so staying in a treatment center that offers medical detox is the safest option. At Muse, our medical detox program gives you the safety of having 24-hour medical supervision by licensed and experienced doctors and nurses. They will watch you and ensure no serious issues arise. They may also provide you with prescription doses of medications that can help with your comfort while reducing symptoms and cravings.

Dual diagnosis care may be integrated into your detox if needed, including therapy and holistic treatment. Psychiatric medications may also be introduced at this time. Your care will be customized to your needs at any given time. You will stay inside a supportive and safe atmosphere, in a clean and comfortable room, with healthy food, counseling, and more, giving you the best possible start to your recovery journey.

Drug Detox Program

The exact symptoms and timeline of drug detox depend on the type of drug(s) you were using. At Muse, we will create a tailored treatment plan that will help you with your individual needs as you work through the difficult and sometimes dangerous side effects of drug detox. With the help of 24/7 medical professionals, prescription medications, therapy, counseling, holistic healing, and peer support, you will soon overcome withdrawal symptoms that may include:

  • Extreme discomfort, aches, and pains
  • Distress and anxiety
  • Intense cravings that can lead to relapse
  • Serious dehydration
  • High blood pressure and fast heartbeat
  • Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting
  • Shaking and tremors
  • Uncontrollable sweating
  • High fever
  • Blurred vision
  • Depression with or without suicidal thoughts
  • Paranoia
  • Insomnia, nightmares, and sleep issues
  • Aggression and irritability
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Light and sound sensitivity
  • Drug-induced psychosis
  • Heart failure and other heart issues
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Seizures and other irregular brain activity
  • Injuries due to cognitive dysfunction and confusion

These symptoms occur because the body and brain chemistry have to make adjustments once the drugs are removed from your system. It is a natural process that can be made much more comfortable with the help of our dedicated staff. We will keep you healthy, safe, and as comfortable as possible as you endure this difficult part of treatment, and all staff members will treat you with the respect you deserve while you are in our care. Once you are deemed medically stable, you will move on to the next phase of your treatment, a customized inpatient and/or outpatient rehabilitation program.

Alcohol Rehab for Residents of Point Loma

Alcohol rehab is different for everybody. At Muse, we offer several levels of care and work with every patient during their intake to figure out the best course of action. We consider your health care needs, mental well-being, personal recovery goals, and practical needs, creating a rehab program that involves inpatient rehab and/or outpatient rehab, often with long-term aftercare treatment provided once you have completed your allotted program. 

When you first come to rehab for an alcohol use disorder, you will be given a medical examination and a mental health screening. You will be asked questions about your history of alcohol use, your home life, and your overall wellness. Some questions may feel a bit personal, but it is important to tell the examiners the truth, as the answers you provide will help them create a program that will help you quit drinking, get healthy, and work toward your goals.

You will then start your detox plan, and once that is completed, you will begin your customized rehab plan. There are two main categories of rehabilitation: Inpatient (living inside the treatment center 24/7) and outpatient (living outside the treatment center and coming in for treatments on a regular basis). Most recovery programs for alcohol abuse involve a minimum of 30 days inside the treatment center.

You will live in a safe and comfortable environment, surrounded by peers, with structured days filled with health care, exercise programs, therapy, counseling, group therapy, process groups, educational programs, and more. To get the most out of your time in inpatient rehab, it is recommended that you participate in group therapy, put trust in your therapist, keep an open mind, and try new things. You will gain new insights into your life as your body grows stronger and your brain chemistry adapts to the lack of alcohol in your system.

Rehab is not easy, but it is a restorative and healing process that will allow you to do the necessary work on yourself to achieve long-term sobriety. Staying in an inpatient treatment center will help you practice self-care, give you the time for mindfulness activities and meditation, and help you gain a new perspective on your life.

  • Once inpatient treatment is over, many people attend an outpatient plan to assist in the transition back into normal life. There are three types of outpatient alcohol rehab programs available at Muse:
  • Partial hospitalization programs (25 hours/week of clinical treatment)
  • Intensive outpatient programs (9 hours minimum/week of treatments, with 12-step groups and other sober activities)
  • Outpatient programs (1 hour/week of therapy, with the option to attend groups and appointments as needed)

These are flexible programs, and you can increase or decrease your level of support as your needs evolve over time. You will have access to services like:

  • Individual, group, and family therapy sessions
  • Dual diagnosis treatments
  • Support groups like SMART and 12-step groups
  • Medical treatment
  • Vocational training and life skills training
  • Holistic treatments
  • Evidence-based care
  • Behavioral therapy including cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Help to address psychosocial issues like sober living housing, probation, and employment

Once you have completed your program, we offer alumni program resources and connections to sober communities near you so you will never be alone in your recovery.

Drug Rehab for Residents of Point Loma

Like alcohol rehab, drug rehab is completely customized to your unique needs as an individual. At Muse, we offer a combination of one-on-one therapy, education, counseling, and other treatments during inpatient and outpatient rehab to help you change your mindset, your behaviors, and your old habits so you can grow into the sober individual you want to become. Our expert team will teach you coping skills and stress-reduction techniques you can use for the rest of your life.

Drug addiction, especially when it comes to opioid drugs, may require further care through a medication-assisted program. This long-term detox program provides prescription doses of medications that help remove withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. In some cases, it often lasts months or even years, with the patient eventually weaning slowly off of the medication in a tapering schedule set by their doctor. MAT treatment plans can help those with opioid use disorders enter rehab with a clear head, getting to the root of their addiction without distraction.

Drug addiction is a serious, chronic disease that can be managed safely with a combination of strong support, therapy, behavioral health care, stress reduction techniques, and a good relapse prevention plan. At Muse, we will give you all the tools you need to stop drug abuse and live a long and drug-free life after rehab is over. Aftercare treatment that incorporates peer support, case management, community resources, counseling, connections to doctors and therapists, and ongoing family therapy will give you all the support you need when life feels overwhelming. You are always welcome back at a Muse Treatment Center, even if it is to talk to somebody or join a support group.

Much Does Rehab Cost?

Every person’s rehab program is unique, and for that reason, it is not possible to give an exact number here. The amount of money you can expect to pay to go to rehab depends on whether you have health insurance (and the type of plan you have), whether you go to inpatient or outpatient rehab (or both), how long you are in treatment, the types of medications you are taking, and other factors. If you are considering rehab but are worried about the cost, please call Muse today to talk to an addiction specialist about your options. Getting treatment is important, and we will do all we can to make it easier for you.

How Long Is Detox?

Every person is unique, and drug detox is different for every person who goes through the program. Some of the factors that may affect the length of time you spend inside the detox center are:

  • Which drug(s) you were using and whether or not you were drinking alcohol or using more than one drug at the same time
  • How long you were abusing substances before starting rehab
  • Physical, biological, and genetic factors
  • Mental health factors, as some mental illnesses may become more apparent as the effects of the drugs wear off

Generally speaking, a drug and alcohol detox can take anywhere from a couple of days to two weeks, but some drugs like opioids and benzodiazepine medications can have rebound symptoms that last for weeks or even months after detox. They may be ever-present, or they can fade away and then come back. For this reason, it is recommended to begin an integrated rehab program that provides stress-relief techniques, behavioral health treatments, relapse prevention programming, and strong peer support. An inpatient rehabilitation plan will ensure you are in a drug-free environment if these rebound symptoms occur.

How Long Is Rehab?

Every person has their own journey when it comes to rehab. At Muse, we offer individualized programs where you can stay in inpatient treatment for 30 to 90 days. This is often followed by outpatient rehab programs, including partial hospitalization programs (a few weeks long) and intensive outpatient programs (three to nine months), with life-long aftercare.

Rehab is a personal process everybody goes through at their own pace. We will never rush you or force you to continue in a program you no longer require. There are a lot of factors that may determine how long you stay in your program, including:

  • Your mental health, as a co-occurring mental health disorder like PTSD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, a mood disorder, etc. can add time, especially if you begin taking a new psychiatric medication. You will have to learn to manage both disorders simultaneously, which can add an additional challenge to your recovery
  • Whether you are in a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) plan for opioid drugs, as you may need longer-term inpatient and/or outpatient support and a strong relapse prevention program to keep you safe
  • Your home life. If you do not have a stable and safe place to return to after rehab, it can put you at risk of relapsing. Some people may wish to move into a sober living environment and continue treatment on an outpatient basis after residential rehab is over to give them the best possible chance of staying sober long-term
  • Your comfort level at each stage of treatment and whether you feel ready to move on, and your preferences. If you want to continue getting therapy and going to groups a few times a week after your IOP is officially over, we will certainly help you extend your treatment plan

30 Day (short term rehab)

When you come to rehab, staying inside the treatment center for a minimum of 30 days is usually recommended. This is the minimum amount of time it takes to develop new, healthy habits, start to heal the underlying causes of addiction, work on behavioral health issues, and absorb all of the new information you will gain about addiction and recovery. Staying in a sober treatment center away from temptations, peer pressure, and the stress of everyday life will give you the chance to regain your strength, take stock of your life and what is important to you, and make the big changes you need to become the sober individual you want to be. In our 30-day program, you will have a full month filled with therapy, educational programs, medical oversight, support, counseling, healthy food, exercise, group therapies, and more to help you work on yourself as you are surrounded by a community of your peers in treatment.

Long Term Rehab (60-90 Days)

Everybody is unique, with their own goals, health concerns, and issues they want to address. Your ideal length of stay in the Muse inpatient rehab program will depend on factors like the types of substances you were using, your home life, and the level of addiction you are experiencing. Long-term rehab is often recommended for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders and addiction issues. Staying in a safe and welcoming environment for 60 to 90 days will help you truly focus on yourself and your treatment. You will have the time to relax, try different therapies, get used to new prescription medications, and learn how to build a new, substance-free future.

Residential rehab is an important place for people who are resistant to treatment and for people with a history of relapsing because it gives patients a chance to break the old habits and thought patterns that led to the development of the addiction in the first place. If you come to Muse for inpatient treatment, you will live in a safe place, away from the stress of everyday life, focusing on your own health, healing your emotional pain, and gaining a better understanding of how drugs and alcohol have altered your mindset. You can work on creating a realistic relapse prevention plan for yourself as you gain new connections to a sober community and get to know yourself once again as a sober individual.

Couples Rehab

Even the most loving couples in a committed, respectful relationship can start having serious difficulties when alcohol and drugs are involved. Using substances, either separately or together, can cause serious damage to the relationship and cause an emotional distance to grow between you. Unless both partners commit to long-term change, the long-term effects can lead to issues like fighting, separation, or even divorce. Some common signs that couples rehab would benefit you and your partner include:

  • If the only activity you enjoy doing together lately has been drinking or using drugs
  • If you are fighting more often about money, substance use, or neglect of daily responsibilities
  • If you often have to cover for one another’s behavior, like calling in sick when hungover, apologizing for their behavior, and other enabling behavior
  • Beginning to isolate from other friends and family members and avoiding regular activities to use substances
  • Getting in trouble with the law due to drug and alcohol use
  • Feeling like you need to drink or use drugs to feel close with your partner, or talk about your relationship
  • If there is any verbal or physical abuse, aggression, or extreme fighting when you and/or your partner are using drugs or alcohol
  • If you are unable to quit using substances, even if you really want to quit

Couples rehab can help you take care of not only your physical health as you quit substance abuse, but it can also heal your mind and your spirit while reconnecting you with your loved one and giving you the chance at a fresh start together. You will have individual and couples therapy to heal the underlying causes of the substance abuse while strengthening your relationship and working on more effective communication with one another. You will gain a new framework for life together after rehab while learning how to support one another in recovery without falling back into old patterns. Many couples who go to rehab together live stronger, with a higher chance of abstaining from drugs and a higher level of overall relationship satisfaction.

Pet Friendly Rehab

Leaving home for 30 days or longer can be a difficult arrangement when you have a dog or cat. Not everybody has a friend or family member who is able to take on the responsibility of watching their pet for that long. Because we know this can become a barrier to getting the help you need, at Muse we allow people to bring their furry best friend with them to rehab.

Not only does bringing your animal to rehab help with the practical implications of going away from treatment, but it can also benefit your healing. Inpatient treatment means spending time away from home and bringing your pet with you can provide comfort and love when you need it the most. You will have something to focus on other than withdrawal symptoms. Being around animals has been proven to lower heart rates and blood pressure while calming anxious feelings. Best of all, you will have familiar companionship from someone who loves you unconditionally, without judgment.

If you would like to find out more about how to bring your pet with you to treatment, please phone us at (800) 426-1818 and we can discuss your options with you.

Does My Insurance Have Coverage For Rehab?

Yes, most health insurance plans will cover at least some of your detox and rehabilitation costs. The exact percentage of treatment that is covered will depend on factors such as the company, your individual policy, and the state you live in. You may need to contact your insurance provider to check which treatments and medications will be covered under your plan. If you are uncertain about what your insurance will or will not cover or would like to help understand your insurance, please contact our client care team at Muse. Give us a call at (800) 426-1818, and we can go over your options so you can make a better-informed decision about your future treatment plans. We can also explain additional out-of-pocket costs that are not covered by your insurance, including copays or deductibles. We are here to help you and will do all we can to ensure you feel confident in your decision as we verify your insurance benefits.

Sober Friendly Attractions near Point Loma

Eat at the Liberty Station Public Market

2820 Historic Decatur Rd, San Diego, CA 92106

In the north end of Point Loma, you will find the Liberty Station Public Market, an ex-naval training center that has been transformed into a mixed-use retail/arts zone with shops, restaurants, and more. Open from 11 am to 8 pm every day, this market has over 30 local food vendors, shopping boutiques, classes, and events to experience. Enjoy your food outside on the patio on a nice day, or eat inside a lovely bakery or café. Liberty Station is also home to parks and historic monuments, boutiques, and arts areas. Visit The Lot, a high-end movie theater where you can get dinner and a movie, or check the Liberty Station website calendar for a list of all events and classes available. From art exhibitions to music performances and painting workshops, there is certain to be something you will enjoy in this eclectic area.

Check out the Point Loma Tide Pools

Lands End Road, San Diego, CA 92106

Tide pools are small pockets of seawater that remain full when the tide goes out, formed in depressions in the coastline. They are usually small and only a few feet deep and are filled with sea life including sea stars, small fish, urchins, sea cucumbers, anemones, snails, crabs, barnacles, and other small creatures that are able to hang on to the rocks as the tides roll in and out overtop of them. Keep your eyes peeled, as you may even find a small octopus or lobster.

The Point Loma Tide Pools are a huge tourist attraction found within the Cabrillo National Monument. Enter the park, pay the entrance fee, leave your car in the parking lot down Cabrillo Road, and walk to the beach. Fall and winter are the best times to visit, as the low tide occurs more often during daylight hours. It is a good idea to check the tide tables before visiting, or you may be waiting hours to be able to see the flora and fauna within these natural phenomena.

Visit the Point Loma Light House

1800 Cabrillo Memorial Dr, San Diego, CA 92106

Located within the Cabrillo National Monument, the Point Loma lighthouse was erected in 1855 by the US government and stands 462 feet above sea level. At one point in its history, this lighthouse was the highest point in the world. Surrounded by gorgeous views of the ocean and the city of San Francisco, it is a gorgeous area to visit any time of year.

Use of this historic structure ceased in 1891 when a newer, lower-down lighthouse was built closer to the shoreline because the high altitude made the light less visible in low clouds or foggy weather. It has since gone through extensive renovations and is now a museum. Entrance is $20 if you drive or $10 if you hike or bike into the park.

Enjoy the Sunset Cliffs Natural Park

Ladera St, San Diego, CA 92107

Just as the name suggests, Sunset Cliffs Natural Park is an excellent place to watch the sun go down, but there are many things to enjoy in this beautiful 68-acre urban park. There are 1.5 miles of coastline to explore and during low tide, you can walk from Luscomb’s Point to the sea caves down below.

For the best sunset view, stop along the 400-foot rocky cliffs and watch the sun go down, and from the months of December to April, watch the gray whale migration from Alaska to Mexico. Although there are no sandy beaches in this area, many surfers who are not afraid to navigate slippery rocks will come to surf the waves. The easiest place to find parking is at the south end of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard or in the lot off Osprey Street.

See a Live Concert at the Humphreys Backstage Live Venue

2303 Shelter Island Dr, San Diego, CA 92106, USA

Humphreys Backstage Live is one of the best-known San Diego venues for the arts and has become famous for putting on incredible Concerts by the Bay. A Polynesian-style resort with an outdoor concert venue, this intimate venue boasts a few hundred seats. Enjoy waterfront views as you take in acts including local musicians, comedians, dancers, and international superstars including big names like Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, and more.
