Why Choose Detox?

Reasons to participate in detoxification at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

When you become addicted to alcohol or another drug, your body adapts to the presence of the substance. When you try to end your use of this substance, your body may respond with a variety of unpleasant symptoms. This experience is known as withdrawal.

Depending upon factors such as the type of substance you’ve become addicted to and the length of time you’ve been using that substance, trying to complete withdrawal without professional care can involve both physical pain and psychological distress. In certain cases, attempting to complete withdrawal without proper assistance can be dangerous.

If withdrawal symptoms have prevented you from ending your substance abuse long enough to begin therapy, our on-site detoxification, or detox, program may be the ideal place to start your recovery journey.

Detox at Sierra by the Sea is a safe, secure, and highly supportive environment where you can complete the withdrawal process with maximum safety and minimal discomfort. Following your successful completion of detox, you can transition directly into our residential program.

Typical length of stay in detox at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, California, is three to five days. The amount of time that you remain in detox with us will be determined solely by your needs and progress.

As is the case at all levels of care at Sierra by the Sea, our detoxification program accepts adults age 18 and older who have a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder.

What Happens During Detox?

Features of detoxification for adults at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

When you enter detox at Sierra by the Sea, you’ll be under the care of a team of experienced professionals, including a psychiatrist and nurses.

Depending upon your needs, your detox team may include certain prescription medications into your personalized plan. For example, if you’re taking part in detox due to a struggle with opioid addiction, you may receive a prescription for Suboxone, Subutex, or Vivitrol. These medications allow you to stop using opioids without experiencing the powerful cravings and other intense symptoms of this type of withdrawal. Vivitrol and certain other medications may also be incorporated into treatment for individuals who are completing detox for alcohol addiction.

Our detox professionals can also offer emotional and therapeutic support to help you manage any discomfort and remain focused on your goal of ridding your body of the substance to which you have become addicted. You may also have the opportunity to take part in the types of therapy that will be included in your residential care. Thus, you can begin to make therapeutic progress toward long-term recovery while you’re still taking part in our detox program.
