Alcohol Detox Programs
Despite the common misconception that drug withdrawal is “worse”, alcohol withdrawal is a much more dangerous endeavor. It is even possible to die from alcohol withdrawal if the addiction has progressed far enough and is severe and proper measures for detoxification are not taken.
Alcohol is one of the most common addictions and receiving information regarding a safe detox program is a necessary step. Alcohol consumption usually begins in a social setting and is, therefore, widely accepted in society. However, once a person becomes alcoholic and suffers from the disease of alcoholism, this social factor becomes extremely dangerous to the recovering alcoholic because the chances of a relapse are real. For the majority of people suffering from alcoholism, a good detox program is a must. Alcoholics who do not seek help or do not receive help soon enough often suffer from a variety of health problems such as liver problems, cardiovascular concerns, even brain damage in addition to a myriad of physical problems that are a direct result of their battle with alcoholism. The body seems to go off in its own direction and this cycle must be stopped or permanent damage could result and in some extremely sad cases, alcohol abuse takes lives
At 449 Recovery we have developed a detox program designed specifically for those suffering from alcoholism. Our program combines a nutritional program, specific medications as well as a constant monitoring solution that helps our patients to work through the process of detoxing comfortably.
We understand the necessity of rehab and detox going hand-in-hand. Your chances of a successful, lasting recovery are lessened if you only go through the detoxification portion of our program and do not also follow-up with the treatment portion of our program. Basically, you cannot have one without the other. While some people do not require a medically assisted detoxification, the body will still go through a detoxing process naturally once the substances are removed. We are here to educate you and support you through your detoxification and your treatment processes. Our facilities are headquartered near the ocean in San Clemente, California. Our medically supervised alcohol detox program offers our patients a well-balanced solution. The process is not always fun nor is it one that an addict will want to repeat. However, we can make the process better for you, our program is safe and it yields extremely positive results.
