Detox: Your first step towards a clean and sober life!

Detoxification or detox treatment is the process of cleansing one’s body of harmful substances. For individuals dependent on alcohol or drugs, this cleansing may be difficult without proper medical help. Alcohol or drug addiction can alter the pathways of the brain, and when one tries to suddenly quit without proper assistance, the body finds it difficult to regain its equilibrium. This leads to the manifestation of withdrawal symptoms. If proper medical care is not provided at the time of detoxification, withdrawal from certain substances like alcohol and benzodiazepines may lead to permanent brain damage or even worse.

Undergoing detox is very important and quite often involves painful steps towards claiming complete recovery. Drug and alcohol addiction may cause severe damage to your body’s natural detoxification organs making it difficult for them to filter the unwanted and harmful substances from the body. Akua’s integrative detox treatment programs are designed to meet our client’s unique needs and help them achieve sobriety.

At Akua Mind & Body, we understand that men and women experience substance abuse differently and therefore the need of individualistic recovery programs. With the help of the Best Clinical Team in California, we have developed gender-specific programs to provide complete and safe detoxification. With the help of these specific recovery programs, it becomes easier for the individual to open up on their unique issues without having to worry about being judged or misunderstood. Same-sex treatment programs allow one to focus completely on their recovery without any distraction. Our holistic approach combined with the beautiful location and sober fun activities makes Akua one of the best detox treatment centers in California.

What our Client Say About Us

 
 

Withdrawal Symptoms

Overcoming drug or alcohol addiction can be very challenging. Trying to break free of the addiction without proper medical guidance can even be fatal. At Akua, we ensure clients have a treatment program focusing on their unique needs so that they can overcome addiction safely and avoid relapse. Sudden abstinence from the addictive substance may result in manifestation of severe or moderate withdrawal symptoms. We make sure that clients undergo a safe and effective recovery. Withdrawal symptoms are different for different substances; though there are certain behavioral and physical changes clients can look out for to determine whether or not they or their loved one is suffering from addiction. The common and prominent changes that may be observed are as follows:

  • Tension
  • Panic attacks
  • Tremors
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Hypertension
