Drug Detox Center In Riverside County
We offer individualized, residential addiction treatment in Corona, California.
What Is Drug Detox?
Someone who is experiencing a substance abuse problem may wonder what it means to go through detoxification or “detox”. The first step in addiction treatment is usually the detox phase, the process in which you clear your system from any drugs or alcohol and remain sober. In the case of substance abuse, the detox phase refers to the period of time that it takes the body to metabolize or process any drugs or alcohol that are currently in a person’s system.
At Shahida’s Place, we understand that everyone has their own story and reasons for wanting to detox from drugs or alcohol. Some clients may be coming to us strictly to detox while others are looking to go to a drug treatment facility that does not currently offer detoxification services. Our goal remains the same for every single client we serve, and that is to help them detox comfortably and support them in making positive life choices.
Symptoms of Withdrawal
Everyone will experience withdrawal in different ways. The process can be extremely dangerous, which is why it is safer to detox with a medical professional present to help along the way.
The best step towards recovery is through the safe detox program at Inland Detox. Our program offers accurate client assessment, stabilization, effective treatment planning, and discharge planning.
Some common side effects of detoxification from drugs can include:
Detoxing From Drugs
Detoxing from drugs can be a very uncomfortable process, and it causes different reactions in a person depending on the type of drug they have been using. Some drugs may cause more discomfort physically and mentally.
For example, detoxing from meth can cause extreme psychological withdrawals, managing anxiety, and intense cravings. Alcohol, on the other hand, causes dangerous physical withdrawals and can even lead to seizures in severe cases.
Each drug will cause different detox side effects. Below are some of the most common drugs that cause withdrawal and therefore will require medical detox – each side effect is treated by our medical staff.
Opioids are one of the most uncomfortable drugs to detox from. The timeframe in which withdrawal symptoms will occur is determined by how fast-acting the opioid is that was taken. Heroin withdrawal can happen quickly, within a few hours, and include muscle aches, anxiety, runny nose, insomnia, sweating, and frequent yawning.
Methamphetamines / Cocaine
Detoxing from methamphetamine (meth) or cocaine can be quite challenging due to the set of symptoms that are unique among drugs of use. Some of the intense withdrawal symptoms can include but are not limited to extreme fatigue, irritability, depression, anxiety, psychosis, anger/aggression, paranoia, intense cravings, mood swings, and sleepiness.
Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs to withdraw from. If a person is physically dependent on alcohol it is highly recommended that they detox under medical supervision. Alcohol affects every organ in the body, so when an alcoholic decides to stop drinking, the withdrawals can be life-threatening. Our alcohol detox page goes into more detail, but some of the common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include: anxiety, tremors, insomnia, fatigue
mood changes, gastrointestinal disturbances, heart palpitations, and increased blood pressure.
The withdrawal symptoms from Benzodiazepines are also very dangerous. Benzodiazepines are anti-anxiety medications, so aside from the physical symptoms of withdrawal, there is typically a “rebound effect” of psychological symptoms like anxiety and depression when a user stops taking the drug. During detox, people who are dependent on Benzodiazepines may experience: Sleep disturbances, Increased tension, Anxiety
Panic attacks, Difficulty concentrating, Excessive sweating, Heart palpitations, and Headaches.
How Long Does Detox Take?
There is no exact timeframe for someone to detox from a specific drug. There are many variables that determine the rate in which a substance will be cleared from a person’s system. It could take anywhere from hours to days, depending on the drug. Here are the major factors that determine the rate of detoxification:
The Dangers Of Detoxing Alone
Detoxing from a drug or alcohol at home can be extremely dangerous and cause serious health problems to occur. When someone detoxes, it causes withdrawal symptoms to happen and without the support of a medical professional it can become a problem or potential emergency quickly. It can also cause relapses to occur more often because the person cannot handle the symptoms associated with their withdrawal and will resort to taking more substances.
