Why Choose California Detox Centers?

What’s your WHY? We hear this all the time when describing a new way of life or a new routine—WHY? WHY did you do it? What made you WANT to do it? What’s your WHY?

When it comes to choosing detox centers in California figuring out your WHY is all about YOU. Perhaps you are choosing detox because you need someone to tell you “NO” when you can’t seem to muster up the courage to say no yourself? Maybe you need help coping with physical pain and you’re not sure how without the self-medicating routine that you currently have in place?

No matter why you choose detox, the end goal is the same: To get the help you need, overcome withdrawal symptoms, feel better and begin your journey to recovery.

How Long is California Alcohol Detox?

Although an estimated 16.6 million Americans struggle with alcohol use disorder, less than 2% get treatment in a professional environment like a detox center. California detox centers offer varied treatment program lengths that are aimed at meeting the unique needs of each type of patient. Here’s what you can expect:

  • A detox program tailored to your needs.
  • At least 7-10 days in detox.
  • A stepping stone toward rehabilitation.

The alcohol withdrawal timeline is slightly different for everyone but appears generally as follows:

  • Day 1: you begin to feel the anxiety, insomnia and confusion that comes following your last drink. This can last for up to 3 days.
  • Days 3-5 (or longer): you will feel sick, agitated and restless. Cravings will be high at this time. If you’re going to struggle with DTs, this is when they are most likely to occur.
  • Days 5-7: most symptoms should dissipate and you are ready for psychological treatment.

How Long is California Drug Detox?

Every case of addiction is unique to the user. You may require 7-10 days in a California drug detox center or you may only need 3-5 days. Some long-term drug abusers require extensive treatment times and spend more than 30 days in detox.

The amount of time you spend in drug detox will depend on:

  • Your age.
  • Your health.
  • How long you’ve been addicted.
  • What you’re addicted to.
  • Your commitment to recovery.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in CA

Deciding whether you need inpatient detox or outpatient detox can be more a matter of WANTS versus NEEDS. Most people WANT to go into outpatient detox because they believe it will be more comfortable, less invasive, etc. However, most people actually NEED inpatient detox. Here’s why:

  • Inpatient detox provides around-the-clock care that ensures your safety in case difficult or potentially dangerous symptoms of withdrawal arise during your recovery.
  • Inpatient detox is safer and more effective because it removes you from the situations that could otherwise tempt you to abuse drugs.
  • Inpatient detox guarantees that you are NOT around drugs or alcohol when cravings peak.

So who can actually go to an outpatient detox program? Only those who have strong support at home, do not suffer from highly physical addictions, and are able to say “NO” when drugs or alcohol are in front of them—if you can’t do that, choose inpatient detox instead.
