Drug Detox in Woodland Hills, CA

Addiction treatment typically begins with a detox program. Whether you’ve become addicted to prescription medications, illicit drugs, alcohol, or a combination of substances, the detox program at Profound is designed to help you through the cravings and the physical withdrawal process.

Alcohol & Drug Detox in Woodland Hills

Many people who need substance abuse treatment avoid getting help because they are fearful of the detoxification process. A residential or inpatient detox program provides 24-7 medical monitoring to keep clients safe and comfortable as they withdraw from drugs or alcohol.

In the drug detox setting, medical personnel provide psychological and medical care as needed, including medications to ease withdrawal symptoms.

In a residential treatment or detox facility, clients live on-site as they go through withdrawal and prepare to participate in the therapies that will help them remain healthy long-term.

If you have been delaying treatment due to fears of detox, get help now at Profound Treatment. We’re here to support you and provide guidance through the process on the path to recovery.

How Long Does It Take for a Drug Detox to Work?

The timeline for the detoxification process varies based on a number of factors, including the substance, the intensity or severity of the addiction, and your medical history. Typically, it can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Most clients need ample time to get past their withdrawal symptoms before they can concentrate on therapy.

At Profound, our medically monitored alcohol and drug detox program offers 24/7 care in an upscale environment to ensure you go through withdrawal safely and comfortably. A doctor or nurse practitioner is available to offer relief medication should you experience any discomfort.

Alcohol & Drug Detox Withdrawal Symptoms 

Withdrawal symptoms occur when a person stops using a substance their body has become dependent on. Physical and psychological symptoms are common but impossible to predict. This uncertainty is one reason to consider a residential detox program. Side effects and symptoms from drug detox can range in level of severity, so medical support is valuable during this time.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms, for example, can range from mildly uncomfortable to severely painful, depending on the individual’s level of alcohol addiction, general health, and other factors. People considered heavy drinkers — those consuming more than seven drinks per week — typically experience the most severe symptoms.

At the Profound Treatment detox in Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, we help clients with a 24-hour medically monitored detox process. We provide medication to keep clients comfortable and monitor their progress closely.

Drug Detox Withdrawal Symptoms 

The symptoms each person experiences while going through drug detox in Woodland Hills vary but typically include the following:

  • Muscle aches and general pain
  • Irritability and angry outbursts
  • Depression

Alcohol Detox Withdrawal Symptoms 

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms typically begin within a few hours after your last drink. Symptoms may include:

Why Choose Drug Detox at Profound Treatment in Woodland Hills, California

Many people in need of treatment think they can handle the effects of detox at home or believe they don’t deserve medical assistance. Both of these beliefs are misguided. Any ideas that a person should sweat it out alone are not only punitive but also may be putting the person’s health at further risk.

The detox program at Profound Treatment is designed to help clients manage their physical and psychological symptoms with monitoring by qualified medical personnel.

Feeling better faster also means detox clients can begin other aspects of their alcohol or drug rehab program sooner. Research has shown that clients receiving addiction treatment have better outcomes when they feel better and have a more positive outlook.

Our detox and substance abuse treatment programs can help clients no matter what substance they are withdrawing from. Continuity of care is also a priority at Profound Treatment. Our clients can begin their residential treatment or intensive outpatient programs immediately after clearing the detox process. In both situations, clients have the opportunity to attend intensive individual therapy sessions, group therapy, and family therapy using a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities.

At each level of treatment, the Profound clinical team will communicate with your primary care team and your family about your progress if you so choose. We will be there for you at every step of the recovery process.
