Top Rated Drug Detox Program for Thousand Oaks Residents

The first step for drug addiction treatment is drug detox. This helps to take care of the physical aspects of drug addiction by ridding the body of all toxic substances. During this process, it is very possible to feel withdrawal symptoms for drugs. Withdrawals can be very uncomfortable and depending on the substance, can be dangerous or even lethal. Medical detox programs are available at Sylvan Detox in Woodland hills for Thousand Oaks, California residents. Medical drug detox can help reduce or even eliminate certain withdrawal symptoms while having access to 24/7 medical care at our recovery center in case of any emergencies.

If you or a loved one is suffering from any form of addiction or abuse, please call Sylvan Detox at (818) 308-3099.

What is Detox Like?

Upon admission, a medical team will conduct a thorough physical and psychological examination to create a personalized treatment plan. Once you are checked into your room at a recovery center, medical staff will monitor your vitals around the clock and administer medications to ease your alcohol and drug withdrawal symptoms. You can expect to start feeling these symptoms within a few hours after your last dose and they will peak around 48 to 72 hours. Drug abuse withdrawal symptoms differ from person to person and also depends on the type of drug that was being abused. Medically assisted detox in Thousand Oaks typically lasts about 7 to 10 days. After you have completed drug detox, it is important to transition into drug rehab treatment to address the psychological and behavioral aspects of substance abuse through various addiction treatments.
