The MD Home Detox Team
MD Home Detox services multiple cities in Los Angeles County. Our staff will coordinate and customize your in-home services based on your specific needs and requests.
Those that are suffering from addiction may choose detox so they can finally make a change in their life and stop using drugs and alcohol. If you find yourself trying to find a safe place to detox or have considered home detox services in California, we think it is imperative that you thoroughly research 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 first acknowledge and address the issue. Sometimes the addicted body can find itself not agreeing with you deciding to stop usage and fight every step of the way to make you crave your substance of choice. Those suffering from addiction will often try to quit using on their own, but find the withdrawal symptoms and emotions that come up confusing and overwhelming.
However, 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 may struggle with abusing drugs or alcohol without developing troubled symptoms of withdrawals and 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. Once the body becomes completely dependent on drugs or alcohol, the body responds by producing painful withdrawal symptoms. If 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. However, that does not mean that everyone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol needs to go through detox in order to 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 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. Moreover, a comprehensive rehab program that includes detox and access to personalized treatment and therapy will put you on the fast track to sober living. Thus showing our patients that total rehabilitation is possible, and it is not as complicated as you might think.
For those suffering from a severe long-term addiction, we may suggest a stay at an intensive inpatient program may be necessary. However, if you’re in the early stages of addiction and are fortunate enough to be aware of this fact, then 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.
Stability of a home environment: Detox treatments can provide stability and security for several reasons. At-home detox treatment provides our patients with the ability to go through this process in the comfort of their own home with the support of loved ones. Since you have a support system, this can increase your overall recovery success. 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 onto the patient. However, when participating in a medically assisted home detox and your home becomes the treatment facility instead. Some things that you may want to consider when participating in our program is that you are not paying a daily rate for a bed, nor are you paying for any services that you do not need. Moreover, at-home detox sets you up for success, keeping you from having to go back to detox again.
Personal life is not interrupted: While we are aware the damage that substance abuse might have caused, we know that addiction can be crippling. This type of addiction is a disease that does not discriminate. No matter who you are or what schedule you have, at-home detox gives any person the chance to continue to maintain their personal life. By receiving treatment in your home, it 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: Moreover, detoxing can be extremely intimidating so this alternative of going through this process in a familiar setting. Moreover, you will be receiving the same care and services at the comfort of your own home. At a traditional detox facility, you may not get the same direct attention as you would with at home detox. The simple issues that you might have to deal with in a traditional detox facility like having to wait for medication. 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.
A safe withdrawal process is a primary concern for you and your family. Your doctor will team together with a Board Certified Addiction Specialist as they work closely with your treatment team to ensure you receive the best medical and psychological care possible as you progress through the detoxification process.
With our private nursing staff, we will be able to closely monitor your vital signs, medication needs, sleep patterns, and nutritional intake. Moreover, most individuals are not ready to begin therapy, attend group, or meet with a psychiatrist until the detox process is over.
Los Angeles may be synonymous with celebrities, shopping, movies, and music, but it is also home to 4 million residents. And, these 4 million Los Angeles residents are not exempt from the disease of addiction. Some statistics that reflect this statement can be found below:
Alcohol is the most abused substance in Los Angeles
Between 2012 and 2014, 22% of Los Angeles residents binge drank
More than 700,000 residents of Los Angeles have an illicit drug use disorder or alcohol use disorder
In recent years, the substances responsible for the most treatment admissions were marijuana, alcohol, heroin, and meth, respectively
Drug overdoses are responsible for 30% of Los Angeles’ homeless community
Cocaine-related deaths increased 49% from July 2019 of July 2020
In California, over 2 million people are suffering from a substance abuse disorder. If you are struggling to quit an addiction to drugs or alcohol, one thing you must know is that you don’t have to face withdrawal symptoms alone. Withdrawal symptoms can be intense (and potentially dangerous). Complications with withdrawal can make recovering people feel powerless in their battle against substance abuse. However, you do have options.
