These dedicated professionals care about you, want to see you succeed, and will be there with you through your entire program at our detox center in Palmdale.
Our Addiction Detox Plan
The addiction detox treatment program begins with an evaluation to determine the type of substance in your system, if you have a potential for co-occurring disorders, and if there are any behavioral issues you will need help with. The next step will be to begin the detoxification process with the help of your detox treatment team. Remember, you will not be doing this alone. Your detox treatment team will let you know what to expect during treatment and the recovery process. The last step of the drug addiction detox or alcohol addiction detox treatment is to move into one of our residential rehabilitation programs, that best fits your needs, to complete your journey to a renewed life.
How Long Does Drug Addiction Detox Take?
Depending upon your age, body type, and physical health, detox can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks. The symptoms and length of drug withdrawal can also vary greatly depending on the specific drug or combination of drugs involved, as well as the time of period of the addiction.
A general estimate of the withdrawal symptoms and timelines are below:
- Heroin or prescription painkillers: flu-like symptoms lasting one to two days
- Cocaine: depression and/or restlessness lasting from 7-10 days
- Alcohol: seizures and/or tremors lasting from three days to multiple weeks
*Note: These are estimates and the length/symptoms can vary greatly from individual to individual.
