Sacramento Detox Center– Drug & Alcohol Detox Treatment Program
Drug & Alcohol Detox Sacramento
Detoxing at home can be dangerous and even life-threatening and some substances can result in deadly withdrawal symptoms. Therefore, it is important for all individuals who are addicted to alcohol or benzodiazepines, specifically, to seek professional treatment so they can detox in a safe environment where their withdrawal symptoms can be monitored, and medications can be administered as needed. Opioid withdrawal, although not deadly, can result in severe physical side effects resulting in many individuals to continue to relapse as a way to prevent these painful withdrawals. Drug detox centers in Sacramento such as AKUA Mind and Body can help alleviate these painful withdrawal symptoms in a controlled setting by administering medications and ensuring that each client is receiving the best care. Depending on the abused substance and the duration and severity of abuse, detoxification on average usually takes five to six days, but can sometimes be longer.
