You’ve decided it’s time to break the brutal cycle of substance abuse and to work towards a more peaceful life focused on your well-being — but now what? Do you need detox, and what does detox entail?
Preparing to go through a medically-supervised drug or alcohol detox and experiencing withdrawal may seem like an overwhelming and frightening thought, but the entire process really does not have to be.
The goal at SolutionPoint Behavioral Health in Rancho Mirage is to make this crucial first step on your path to recovery as discreet, comfortable and safe as possible.
The detoxification process begins with a professional counselor, who will discuss your substance use, go over your health history and any issues or concerns you may have, and work with you to determine what is the best medically-assisted approach for your personal situation.
Once all substance use has stopped and the detoxing process has begun, you will experience withdrawal. The intensity and length of physical symptoms will depend on your use, but SolutionPoint Behavioral Health staff will be by your side to guide you through the process and work to manage the pain, possibly through the use of safe and effective medication.
One-on-one counseling sessions also are an important part of facing the emotional and mental health aspects of your life-changing journey at the facility.
Once your system is completely free and clear of all substances, SolutionPoint will assist you in determining your future goals and explaining options available in the continuing recovery process, whether that be inpatient or outpatient treatment, sober living or another aftercare approach of your choosing. We encourage continued recovery, but the final decision about what that looks like will be up to you.
Detoxing from drugs or alcohol and ending the cycle of addiction will clear your head, so you can finally begin to focus on who you really are and how you want to live the life you truly deserve.
