Wildwood Recovery is a wonderful place to get sober and begin your path to recovery. Here, you will benefit from highly personalized, hands-on care, and detox under the supervision of some of the best addiction treatment specialists in California.
Detox in a Controlled Environment
Because of the addictive nature of alcohol and many of the drugs that our clients use, detoxification is often needed before recovery treatment can begin. Detox must be supervised by qualified personnel, as this is a dangerous period for the body. Detox can bring about withdrawal, and withdrawal can bring about the following symptoms:
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart Palpitations
- Body Pain
These are some of the more severe symptoms of withdrawal but not an exhaustive list. Less severe symptoms of withdrawal include mood swings, depression, irritability, intrusive thoughts and cravings, uncontrollable sweating, and many other non-life-threatening conditions.
What is Detoxification?
Many people think of detoxification as a short period of withdrawal, lasting several days to a week in duration, this is only the first phase of detox. True detox continues after the withdrawal symptoms have dissipated. Detox is ongoing, and it focuses on proper diet, exercise, replacing bad habits with healthy ones, and most importantly, bringing your drug and or alcohol use to a halt. Please note, that whether you detox at our facility, somewhere else, or by yourself, we would never tell someone not to stop using drugs and alcohol. At the same time, it is ALWAYS wise to consult a doctor before trying to detox on your own.
Why You Should Detox at Wildwood Recovery
We strongly advise that you consider detoxing at Wildwood Recovery or a drug rehab that can monitor you through this sensitive phase. The great part about detoxing here is that, after you’ve detoxed, you can immediately enter into our inpatient treatment program. Inpatient rehabilitation will allow us to build a plan for your recovery with you, build on the momentum you’ve established in detox, and it will provide you with a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment for you to start recovery.
Many of our past clients state that their time at Wildwood recovery was one of the most life-affirming and life-changing experiences they’ve ever had. Indeed, because we are a small facility, we treat only a handful of clients at a time, this is part of the reason why we have a significantly higher long-term sobriety success rate among our clients. One of the things that make us different and helps us be successful is that the client drives the treatment plan at Wildwood Recovery, this is a radically different approach to rehab than the standard “one size fits all” treatment model most rehabs use.
We work on the issues that the client brings to treatment rather than assigning treatment to the client. By taking the time to get to know each client, we get a clearer picture of how to care for them. If you need affordable and quality drug detox in Thousand Oaks, please contact Wildwood Recovery today.
