The MD Home Detox Team
If you are struggling to quit an addiction to drugs or alcohol, you don’t have to face withdrawal symptoms alone. We can facilitate a safe & comfortable detox in the privacy of your own home with on-site doctors and nurses.
Withdrawal symptoms can be scary (and potentially dangerous). Complications with withdrawal can make recovering people feel powerless in their battle against substance abuse. Having a support team on hand to facilitate the detox is a great way to build momentum in your recovery and we can make a referral to additional counseling services and treatment programs to continue care after the initial stabilization.
Addicted people choose detox so they can stop using drugs and alcohol once and for all. Whether you’re looking for a safe place to detox or considering home detox services in California, it’s essential to do your research on the providers. Detox is both medicine and science, and many facilities lack the medically-trained staff that is needed to provide a safe and comfortable experience.
The first step in recovery is always the same – you must stop using alcohol and drugs. But the addicted body doesn’t agree with this first step and fights every step of the way to make you crave your substance of choice. Addicted persons often try to quit using on their own, but find the withdrawal symptoms and emotions that come up confusing and overwhelming.
Addiction affects more than just a person’s body. The use of an addictive substance can cause not only physical dependence but also changes to the brain that affects the way a person feels, thinks, and acts.
Detox is most commonly needed if you cannot stop abusing drugs or alcohol without developing distressing symptoms of withdrawal and relenting cravings. If you find that you are starting to develop withdrawal symptoms (headache, nausea, general feeling of being unwell) as your high begins to wear off, there is a likelihood that you are dependent on the substance you are abusing. Being dependent means that your body is reliant on drugs or alcohol, therefore, when abuse is not occurring, the body responds by producing painful withdrawal symptoms. When this is the case, you are likely to require professional detox services.
Detox is a service that is used to help those physically and/or psychologically dependent on drugs or alcohol to clear their systems of any and all mind-altering substances. That does not mean that everyone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol needs to go through detox prior to receiving further therapy. Detox tends to be utilized for and is most beneficial to those who are dependent on drugs or alcohol, those who have mental health or medical conditions that could be exacerbated by sudden cessation of use, or for those who have been unable to detox on their own.
A medically assisted home detox can put you on the path to a full recovery. Experienced addiction treatment professionals are invaluable when it comes to navigating the physical and emotional turmoil of withdrawal. A comprehensive rehab program that includes detox and access to personalized treatment and therapy will put you on the fast track to sober living. Total rehabilitation is possible, and it isn’t as complicated as you might think.
For those suffering from a severe long-term addiction, a stay at an intensive inpatient program may be necessary. But if you’re in the early stages of addiction, and are fortunate enough to be aware of this fact, a home detox treatment program may be the best option for you. The structure and flexibility offered by a home detox are ideal for those in the early stages of addiction, or those in need of detox support after a previous stay at a treatment facility. These are certainly not the only benefits of our at home detox.
Stability of a home environment: Home detox treatment provides stability and security for several reasons. Not only re you are able to go through this process in the comfort of your own home, but you can also continue to have the support of loved ones around you. Both of these benefits can increase your overall at home detox. Unlike traditional detox, you can have the support of your loved ones all while remaining in a familiar environment.
Lower cost: Inpatient detox treatment can be costly, and the high costs of maintaining expensive medical facilities is often passed on to the patient. But when participating in a medically assisted home detox, your home becomes the treatment facility instead. You are not paying a daily rate for a bed, nor are you paying for any services that you do not need. Additionally, at home detox sets you up for success, keeping you from having to go back to detox again.
Personal life is not interrupted: Addiction is a disease that does not discriminate. It is one that affects people from all walks of life, even those who have full schedules. At home detox gives even the busiest of individuals the chance to continue to maintain areas of their personal life while they work on clearing their minds and bodies of drugs and/or alcohol. Receiving treatment in your home allows you to continue your daily routine without having to take time off to reside at a detox facility for an undetermined amount of time.
Individualized services: Detoxing in the comfort of your own home isn’t just beneficial because you can continue to remain in a familiar setting, but it is also beneficial because you will receive the exact services and care you need. At a traditional detox facility, you may not get the same direct attention as you would with at home detox. You do not need to wait your turn or settle for whatever therapeutic remedy is available at the moment. Instead, you get the 100% focus of the team.
Privacy: If you are in need of professional detox services, you may not be in a place where you are comfortable sharing your experience. At home detox helps you preserve your privacy, as there are no other patients in your residence. You also do not have to interact with anyone else who is not completely in the know of what your situation is like. Addiction is a hard disease to talk about, never mind recover from. Having privacy to do that is priceless.
Addiction is a painful and overwhelming disease. When your body is depending on a substance, and you take that substance away, you’re going to experience withdrawal. If you don’t have help with those withdrawal symptoms, you will likely go back to your drug of choice quickly. Detox helps you pave the way to substantial sober time. It lets you have time to breathe, begin the healing process, and purge your body of poisons while you plan for the future in recovery.
Many people, especially those in California, want to get help for themselves but have trouble taking the first step to recovery. Detox facilities may seem scary, dangerous, or impersonal. You’re not a number or just “another addict.” You’re an individual, and your needs may not be exactly like another’s. Home detox can help you get the personalized help you need to rid your body of drugs and alcohol.
Nearly 21 million Americans grapple with a substance use disorder. Some are addicted to alcohol or drugs while others are addicted to both. The pervasiveness with which substance abuse occurs puts anyone who is abusing mind-altering substances at risk.
Despite such an alarmingly large number of people with a substance use disorder, or SUD, in the United States, only 10% of those individuals reach out for professional help, including detox services. Additional statistics regarding substance abuse in America include the following:
• 34.2 million Americans committed a DUI in 2017 alone
• Approximately 20% of individuals with an anxiety disorder or depression also have a co-occurring substance use disorder
• 1 in 20 deaths worldwide occur as a result of alcohol
• Binge drinking is most common in males between the ages 18-25
• Roughly 130 people die each day in the United States from opioid overdose
• The sale of prescription painkillers has increased 300% between now and 1999
• 2.1 million Americans have opioid use disorder
• 25% of individuals who try heroin will become addicted to it
• 30% of those who use marijuana have marijuana use disorder
• In 2017, 1 million Americans ages 12 and older tried cocaine
• Nearly 1 million Americans (964,000) are addicted to methamphetamine
In California, nearly 8% of the state’s population struggles with a substance use disorder. Some state-specific statistics include the following:
• The most commonly used drugs in the state include, in consecutive order, marijuana, opioid-based painkillers, cocaine, and heroin
• Only 10% of Californians with substance use disorders have sought treatment
• The opioid death rate in California (5.3 deaths per 100,000 people) is significantly less than the national death rate, which is 14.6 deaths per 100,000 people
• Several opioid schemes have impacted California, with one scheme resulting in 21 million opioid prescriptions written for a town of less than 3,000 residents
• California had the highest rates of drug overdoses in the country, increasing 30% between 1999-2015 and again between 2016-2018
• 6.4% of Californians meet the criteria for having alcohol use disorder
• 7.2% of young adults in California abuse cocaine
• Between 2012-2014, 33.8% of non-fatal emergency department visits were the result of amphetamine consumption
Detoxing from substances is hard enough. For many people, detoxing at a detox center can have ill effects. There may be difficulty trusting the staff, especially if they seem untrained. If you live in the state of California, you may be aware that many shady providers handle detox and treatment. There has been a lot of insurance fraud in the drug treatment realm over the past several years.
If you’re going to a regular detox program in-state, you may not have access to Medication-Assisted treatment (MAT) that reduces cravings. And there may be problems that aren’t noticed by medical staff, and therefore go untreated. Home
Most drugs, especially opioids and amphetamine-type drugs, have withdrawal symptoms when a person ceases using them after a long period of consistent drug use. However, each person experiences withdrawal differently, and there is no uniform way to treat people. Detoxing is an intimate, personal experience that varies from person to person. Many people find that detoxing from home is a relief that can be safe and practical.
