To help our clients build a solid foundation for recovery, we provide comprehensive, medically-supervised detox services to promote a safe and comfortable experience as drugs and alcohol are eliminated from the body. This important first step ensures recovery begins on the right foot and patients are ready to dig deeper into their addiction once they transition into our residential care program.
What Is Detox for Drugs and Alcohol?
When you come to our Tarzana detox center, you can expect to receive compassionate, professional care that helps alleviate the symptoms of withdrawal.
Detoxing for drugs and alcohol is the process that happens when you stop drinking or taking drugs. In an effort to maintain balance, your brain sends messages to increase the production of certain chemicals to counteract the chemicals you are ingesting.
When you stop using those substances, it takes the brain several days to stop overproducing those chemicals. This transition results in a variety of withdrawal symptoms. The process of withdrawal is different for every person and is affected by many factors, including:
- Your general health
- The length and severity of your addiction
- Previous detoxing
- Co-occurring conditions
- The substance(s) you are addicted to
Withdrawal symptoms can be mild to severe. In some cases, life-threatening symptoms can arise. Our Tarzana detox center is a medically monitored program. Our certified medical staff supervises each client as they go through the withdrawal process.
Prescription medications, nutrition, and other treatments are used to help minimize withdrawal symptoms and keep our clients safe. Providing a high level of medical care and moral support helps clients in our Tarzana detox center build a more stable foundation for recovery.
A FRESH START AT JOURNEY HILLSIDE TARZANA
The recovery journey typically begins with a detox program
Detox is one of the early challenges faced by patients due to a process called withdrawal. Withdrawal causes a variety of unpleasant symptoms when drugs are no longer used that can make patients feel anxious, depressed and restless. This is because prolonged use of drugs or alcohol can cause chemical imbalances that change the way the brain works, affecting concentration, emotional regulation, sleep patterns and more. Over time, your brain begins to rely on drugs or alcohol, which leads to uncomfortable symptoms as your body readjusts to functioning without them.
Journey Hillside Tarzana is equipped with an experienced, compassionate medical staff available around the clock and highly skilled in managing withdrawal symptoms. When traces of drugs or alcohol remain in the body, it’s more difficult to resist cravings and leave old patterns of behavior behind. A comprehensive detox allows patients to start their treatment experience with a clean slate and a clear mind. The tools we use to help patients have a safe, positive experience include:

While these symptoms are uncomfortable, for many clients, they can also be dangerous. Certain drugs may cause seizures, hallucinations and delusions, which can be frightening and in some cases, fatal. Withdrawal can also prompt some individuals to seek out drugs and alcohol as a way to ease or avoid symptoms. When a patient relapses, their chances of overdosing are higher due to decreased tolerance. This is why we believe that a professional, medically-supervised detox program is a critical step that keeps patients safe as they prepare for the remainder of their recovery journey.
