About Detox at Sovereign Health

For those who are unable to stop drinking and/or using drugs, detox treatment offers an opportunity to become clean and sober. At Sovereign Health, detoxification treatment is safe, comfortable and private. Patients choosing to detox at Sovereign Health have several options open to them, such as Nutritionally Assisted Detox (NAD) and medical detox.

Our San Clemente facility is one of a few select detox treatment centers in the world to offer intravenous nutritionally assisted therapy, which uses a mixture of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and micronutrients to dramatically decrease the severity and duration of withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Both our San Clemente and Palm Desert facilities offer medical detoxification treatment, which utilizes various medications to taper off addictive substances and treat withdrawal symptoms. Our expert physicians and staff provide the medical supervision required to ensure the safety and comfort of every patient.

What is Detox Treatment?

When people become chemically dependent, their brains and bodies require the drug or alcohol in order to function. When they abruptly stop drinking and/or taking their drug of choice, they become very ill, upset and experience overwhelming cravings. Most feel as if they will die if they don’t get more drugs or alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms make it difficult, if not impossible, to quit without help. In addition, abruptly stopping alcohol, benzodiazepines or opioids can be life-threatening. Detox treatment provides the medical supervision necessary throughout the process.

Detoxification helps people free themselves from addictive substances by replacing them with safe and effective treatments. For some, medications are given that mimic the effects of alcohol, opiates or other drugs. These medications are tapered off gradually, giving the body time to adjust. For others, medications that help alleviate withdrawal symptoms are all that are needed. Still others may choose to have NAD.

What is Nutritionally Assisted Detox?

NAD is a combination of neurotransmitter restoration and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide that uses a mixture of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to ease patients through the withdrawal process. This unique form of detox alleviates the patients’ symptoms, regulates stress levels, and improves mood and mental clarity. Withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and/or drugs are reduced by 50 to 60 percent in the first three days and by 70 to 80 percent by Day Four. The intravenous infusion is given each day for three to 14 days and is followed by an oral maintenance formulation.

Detox typically lasts three to 10 days, but sometimes longer. In any case, detox treatment cleanses the body of harmful substances, but does not rid the individual of addiction. Patients who choose to stay for drug or alcohol rehabilitation are more likely to remain clean and sober in the long term.

Drug or alcohol rehabilitation takes an average of 30 to 90 days, sometimes longer. Often, there are underlying and co-occurring disorders contributing to the substance use that need to be addressed. In addition, healthy lifestyle patterns need to replace old behavior patterns.

At Sovereign Health, our drug, alcohol and dual diagnosis programs provide individual, group and family psychotherapy, as well as cognitive remediation, relapse prevention and experiential therapy. Our continuing care program provides ongoing support to help patients transition into the sober community.
