Drug Alcohol Detox and Rehab Center - Malibu Horizon

alcohol drug detox and rehab centerWhile drug detox and rehab sound very similar, they can often mean two entirely different things. Drug detox is commonly referred to as the process of detoxify drug toxins from the body whereas drug rehabilitation is the term for the clinical and psychotherapeutic treatment for an addiction to drugs or alcohol. While many drug rehab centers offer some type of drug detox program, drug detox in itself is usually not enough to break a stubborn and powerful drug or alcohol addiction. This is because drug detox only deals with the symptoms of a drug addiction and not the underlying factors and causes behind it.

Detox is short for the term detoxification and is the process of cleaning out the body of any drug or alcohol toxins, as well as handling the side effects of drug or alcohol withdrawal. Because the severity of withdrawal symptoms can vary from patient to patient, some may need only a few days of detox therapy, while others may need a few weeks, or even longer. While most substance withdrawal symptoms are not life-threatening, they can be dangerous to an individual who is already in a poor state of health. However, for individuals who have severe alcohol or benzodiazepine addictions, withdrawal symptoms can lead to fatal complications and it is important that you seek out professional detox help when weaning yourself off of these substances.

Drug rehab is often the next step of therapy after the drug detox program has been completed. Drug rehab is different than drug detox because drug rehab focuses on the deeper, psychological issues behind a drug addiction, whereas drug detox only deals with the physical symptoms of a drug addiction. Because it is virtually impossible for someone suffering from severe withdrawal pain to properly receive drug addiction counseling and therapy, drug detox is always the first step in any rehabilitation program. However, many people often confuse drug detox with drug treatment, and then don’t understand why they’re suffering relapse after relapse

For someone to completely recover from a drug or alcohol addiction it is vital that they have a program that deals both with the physical and psychological symptoms behind a drug addiction. This includes not only detox, but behavioral and cognitive therapy, group counseling, drug counseling, addiction education, dual diagnosis therapy, just to name a few. Without effectively treating these underlying symptoms as well, the individual is bound to repeat the same cycle of drug abuse over and over.

Suboxone Detox and Rehab for Prescription Medication Withdrawal

detox and rehabilitationSuboxone is a highly effective medication that we could recommend by our consulting MD, to help reduce opiate addiction. Suboxone also helps ease any withdrawal symptoms and side effects. Suboxone is a medication containing buprenorphine and naloxone, combined in a single tablet. Buprenorphine which has been used successfully as a treatment for heroin addiction--works by acting on the brain's opiate receptors to relieve withdrawal and cravings without prompting the same intense high or dangerous side effects as other opioids. When combined with naloxone, buprenorphine's abuse potential is further limited because people who try to inject it experience severe withdrawal symptoms. However, when Suboxone is taken orally, as prescribed, these adverse effects do not occur.
