Detox Program in Los Angeles

 

The Encino Recovery & Detox Center is one of the leading drug and alcohol detox programs in Los Angeles, CA, using evidence-based treatments to safely withdraw from drug and alcohol addiction.

What Is the Drug and Alcohol Detox Process in Los Angeles Like?

At The Encino we understand that the detox process is a biological, physiological, and psychological process that occurs when an individual stops drug or alcohol use. 

Detox from drugs and alcohol varies based on the needs of the individual. Our team of compassionate staff will typically follow three steps during the Encino detox process: 

  • Evaluation: A comprehensive assessment to understand your current and past physical and psychological history. The evaluation also involves testing for the presence of addictive substances. 
  • Stabilization: This step involves managing acute intoxication of alcohol or drug withdrawal in a safe and supervised in-patient detox setting. Medication Assisted Treatment or MAT may be used during this phase to alleviate physical withdrawal symptoms. 
  • Preparation for Long-Term Recovery: Your treatment team will help you develop a personalized care plan to support and encourage continued treatment for successful long term recovery outcomes.
