Top-Rated Drug Detox Program for Residents of Thousand Oaks
Drug withdrawal is one of the hardest first experiences that a person wanting to quit drugs has to go through. Their body has become so used to the drug that for the new balance that’s been established to work, more drugs are needed. This is what physical drug dependence is. The time needed for your body to function normally again requires that you go through detox and then opens you up to withdrawal symptoms.
However, you don’t have to go through the normally-intense withdrawal symptoms linked to meth, cocaine, heroin, and prescription drug addiction if you use our medical detox program. You can be given medication in our top-rated drug detox program for residents of Thousand Oaks that will greatly reduce the usual symptoms that are associated with withdrawal.
Through our medical detox program open to Thousand Oaks residents, not only are your symptoms managed so that you are more comfortable but we also monitor your health around the clock to make sure that you are getting enough fluids, sustenance, and that no unforeseen medical problem arises during detox.
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?
Prior to entering detox, you may be filled with doubt and anxiety over what’s to come. You’ve likely experienced some of the common withdrawal symptoms of the drug that you use and thinking about how that might intensify may seem like it will be overwhelming. However, the medical detox program that we offer to Thousand Oaks residents will quickly ease your concerns once you start.
Our drug detox program is designed to reduce symptoms and make your recovery safe. You will be met by our caring staff members that will help to eliminate your detox fears as you get comfortable, are given medication, and then relax as your detox begins.

Withdrawal symptoms, which are normally intense when detox is done alone, are easily handled and managed in our drug detox for Thousand Oaks residents.
Our medical team will monitor your health day and night to ensure that nothing unforeseen or preventable occurs. They ensure that you are drinking enough liquids and are eating enough food so that your body can safely recover during detox.

How Long Does Detox Take?
Drug detox in our medical detox program offered to residents of Thousand Oaks is relatively short. In most cases, you can expect a swift recovery when compared to the months and years you may have been addicted to a substance. For most people, the entire process of detox lasts about 5 to 7 days.
Factors such as the type of drug, the length of the addiction, your medical condition, and the number of drugs that you took regularly have an impact on the length and the severity of detox. The first signs of withdrawal usually begin 6 to 12 hours from when you last used the drug. The symptoms will be mild at first and as you approach day 3 of your detox, you will reach the peak of your withdrawal symptom intensity.
After the third day, your symptoms will become progressively less intense until around day 5 when the majority of your symptoms will be gone. Some people with a more severe drug dependence may only feel normal again after about 6 or 7 days have passed.
A condition known as post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) may occur in some people. Those who experience it report psychological symptoms for weeks or even months after getting through detox. Muse Treatment offers a medically-assisted treatment (MAT) program that is a way to give long-term addiction treatment which is primarily aimed at preventing relapse and making a person more receptive to therapy. It can help to manage symptoms that persist long after your detox program is complete such as cravings and other psychological symptoms such as depression or an inability to feel pleasure.
Why Choose Muse for Drug Detox?
Since drug withdrawal can be a harrowing experience with the potential for medical problems, it’s important that professional help be found before attempting to detox. Muse Treatment is a rehab that offers accredited treatment services and we are monitored by LegitScript to ensure that our methods of treatment that use prescribed medication are safe.
One of the main problems and concerns with detox, when it’s not carried out by an accredited rehab such as Muse, is that a person goes through withdrawal for a few days and then relapses but due to their lowered tolerance, they take too much of a drug which opens them up to overdosing. When drugs like heroin are involved, the risk of death is even greater since many heroin dealers will add fentanyl to their mixture to increase potential cheaply.
Muse Treatment and Recovery Center can ensure that your detox goes smoothly and we provide extensive treatment programs including behavioral therapy and alternative treatment programs to help continue with your recovery once detox is complete. Drug detox, while required, doesn’t treat addiction but rather just the symptoms your body experiences as it gets used to not having a drug present. The factors that led you to abuse drugs and become addicted to drugs in the first place are important to treat if you are to achieve long-term sobriety.
Let Muse Treatment provide a safe means to overcome drug dependence through our medical detox program for residents of Thousand Oaks. We will help you to be comfortable so that you can complete detox and then use that momentum to continue with your recovery in our drug addiction treatment programs.
