Process of medical detox

Medical detox is the process of eliminating the toxic remains of drugs from the human body. The intent behind a medical detox procedure is to help an addict safely overcome withdrawal symptoms. The process of drug detox takes anywhere between 7 and 10 days from start to finish. A certified physician will prescribe medications during the detox process to help you stay calm, composed, and safe while the toxins leave your body.

Drug detox is the first step in addiction treatment and generally involves three stages. Evaluation is the first stage, where the rehab center’s medical team will screen you for physical and mental health complaints. This stage helps the doctors determine the type of medications that they need to prescribe and their dosages to administer a successful medical detox procedure. The second stage is stabilization, where a doctor will stabilize you with medications and psychological therapies to prevent complications and to reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms. The last and final step is preparation, where a team of physicians will walk you through the treatment process and prepare you for what is to follow during and after detox.

Side effects of detox                       

Although detox in a rehab center in the supervision of a trained clinical team is 100% safe, some patients experience side-effects after the procedure. Some of these side-effects include:

  • Anxiety, mood swings, and lack of focus
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Body pain and slight discomfort

There are very few reported cases of side-effects in patients that undergo detox. We are one of the few centers to offer 24/7 supervision for all patients that undergo drug detox in Newport Beach. 

Can pregnant women undergo drug detox?

We see a lot of pregnant women that wish to quit drugs to protect their baby from the ill effects of substance use. While medical detox is possible for women that are pregnant, it can cause sudden stress to the unborn child and lead to pregnancy complications like preterm labor, severe fetal distress, and other developmental damage.

At our center, we have an expert team with experience in offering medical detox to pregnant women. We ensure that the withdrawal symptoms experienced by the pregnant mother do not harm the fetus in any way with our superior level of medical care. Our primary focus with detox in pregnant women is to shield them from relapsing and helping them overcome pain. To be extra safe, we also monitor pregnant women by prescribing medications to stabilize their health and to keep the fetus safe.
