Alcohol Detox

Alcohol Detoxification in the comfort of Santa Clarita

One of the first steps our patients will go through when they begin treatment for alcohol abuse here at Valley Recovery Center is detoxing. An alcohol detox can be challenging and time-consuming, and there are potentially harmful side effects. Therefore, it’s incredibly important to detox under professional supervision. The goal of detoxification is to flush out the toxins that have accumulated in the addict’s body over time. The length of time and intensity of a patient’s alcohol abuse factor into how long and how difficult the detox will be.

Customized Detox Plan for your Recovery

Going through withdrawal can cause patients to experience some harmful reactions, which is why professional supervision is so important. These reactions can include seizures, disorientation, fatigue, tremors, anxiety, and depression. Every individual is different, and each person’s detox will naturally vary.

Detox for long term recovery benefits

As intimidating as the side effects of withdrawal can be, it’s important to know that detox is an absolutely vital part of treatment. Long term abuse of alcohol causes the body’s chemistry to change, and the body of an addict reacts to being deprived of alcohol. This reaction compels many alcoholics to return to drinking. Ridding the body of the harmful toxins that have accumulated is necessary for true healing to occur, and our team will be by your side the entire time to make sure you are safe and as comfortable as possible.
