Detox is the first step on the road to recovery. It’s also one of the more difficult ones. Whether you’re seeking drug or alcohol treatment in Thousand Oaks or Westlake Village, we can alleviate some of the harsher aspects of the treatment. The goals of detox are to stabilize the client’s system, while removing the addictive substances from their body. Here at PCI Centers, we have trained medical professionals who can help you through the rougher aspects of alcohol and drug withdrawal.
The Initial Evaluation
When you arrive at our facility, you’ll undergo a comprehensive evaluation. Our trained medical professionals will examine you, testing to see what substances you’re addicted to, as well as how much of them are still in your body. This evaluation takes many factors into account, and forms the basis for the rest of the detox process. Drawing upon it, our team can put together a customized plan for your exact needs. That way, we can help you to address all of the side effects of the substances while making sure that you’re set up for the road to recovery.
Withdrawal and Stabilization
After we know what it is exactly that we have to deal with, we can get right to handling the effects of your withdrawal. Our treating physicians have years of experience, so they know how to treat your withdrawal properly. They know whether it’s best to cut off your intake in gradual measures, or whether they should just stop all intake instantly. They’ll be by your side the entire time, helping to guide you through the most difficult of withdrawal’s consequences. Part of treating the patient, we’ve found, is to treat their expectations, too. Our treating team is always positive and honest. So, they can manage your expectations properly, so that you’ll have a realistic idea as to what the outcome of the detox will be.
Physiological and Psychological
The final stage of detox is really just preparation for the next step of recovery. Addition leaves many physiological consequences in its wake. Detox can take care of those, but once they’re gone, the psychological aspects of dependency have to be dealt with. That’s where our rehabilitation program comes in. The more you know about your treatment, the better equipped you’ll be to face what’s ahead. So, before your detox ends, the treatment team will tell you everything that you need to know. You’ll be completely clear on what rehab will be, and then you’ll be able to make the choice to continue the recovery process.
