Our Medical Detox for Drugs and Alcohol
Comfortable and Private Medical Detox
Getting a safe and comfortable drug and alcohol detox is a must for most of us. If you’ve been using or drinking for any length of time, you’re not going to feel great if you suddenly stop. Actually, it can be very dangerous, even deadly to quit cold turkey depending on what you’re using. Still, you would be surprised by just how many people attempt a drug and alcohol detox at home. Even when they know better and have health insurance or financial means and support to get a proper, medical drug and alcohol detox. The reasons why vary. They may be ashamed to return to drug treatment again. Maybe they want to try and keep their using a secret. They hope they can just take a week off and handle their business quietly.
You will always get the truth from us here at Transformations Care. The truth here is, those people who you think don’t know you’re using or drinking. They probably know somethings up. Torturing yourself with another drug and alcohol detox at home to keep the “secret” isn’t smart or practical. Bottom line: Whatever the reasons people try to detox at home, it’s always a mistake when you have a better option. Home drug and alcohol detox doesn’t work. Nine times out of ten people feel awful during it. Worse, they end up picking up again so the suffering is all for nothing in the end. They say if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right. That’s as true when it comes to drug and alcohol detox as it is for anything. It really is worth doing the right way. Even if it does seem like a little more work up front.

Using Insurance for Drug and Alcohol Detox
Medical health insurance will almost always cover some form of drug and alcohol detox. Whether or not you have the coverage you will need depend on a number of things. You will want to start first with a check of benefits through our admissions office. After that, a preliminary intake screening to find out what you’re using and how much will give us a clearer picture of what kind of help you need and what your coverage can cover.
An insurance benefits check at Transformations Care is easy and usually takes less than an hour. Checking your insurance doesn’t commit you to drug and alcohol detox or any other treatment at Transformations Care. What it will do is give you a clearer picture of your options for addiction treatment for yourself or your loved one. That can help you make the right decision for yourself.
All we need for insurance verification is:
- A health/medical insurance card
- Full legal name, date of birth
- A phone number to call you back at once we have some answers.
Medical Detox from Opioids
Best case scenario with a home detox from opioids is maybe you grab some subs from someone you know. But you’re not sure how to use them (you’re not a doctor, remember?) So, you take them a just a little too early and throw yourself into precipitated withdrawal. Now you’re sick anyway. Or maybe a “friend” agrees to help you with a home detox and gives you a Vicodin and a beer every 3-4 hours. Do you really think that’s going to get you sober and keep you there? You know better than that. Chances are, if you are trying to detox off opiates at home, sooner or later you’re going to have the worst flu-like symptoms ever.
Look, we have been through opioid withdrawal ourselves. We know how ugly it can get. That’s why Transformations Care has a top-notch drug and alcohol detox of our own set up in a quiet, comfortable residential area in the L.A. suburbs. We give you the kind of care we would want ourselves. A careful, clinically monitored opioid detox protocol. Your discomfort will be contained, controlled and treatment. We will head off as much discomfort as possible before you even have a chance to experience it. We are opioid addiction experts and we know opioid medical detox inside and out. We will keep you as comfortable as possible and treat any peripheral discomfort too, like aches and pains, cramps, anxiety or insomnia.
Amphetamines, Cocaine and Medical Detox
If amphetamines or cocaine are your go-to, you might not get the nightmare flu symptoms, but you you’ll definitely be out of energy, depressed and run down if you just quit and try and tough it out on the couch. Trying drug and alcohol detox at home is one of the times people are most likely to relapse too, for obvious reasons. Often times they’ll try to use something other than their usual drug of choice to try an ease the impact. Let’s be honest, you’re not a doctor. Drinking or smoking weed to try and ride out the coke blues or get to sleep after a 4-night meth binge isn’t an exact science. If you’re honest with yourself, you know this isn’t a proper medical drug and alcohol detox.
A drug and alcohol detox you do at home isn’t detox at all. If you’ve done it before, and many of us have tried, then you know the deal. You will be out ripping and running again before long. Even if you get through the worst of it and put a couple weeks together, with no medical detox and no program, you’re in trouble. The coke or crystal is gonna start talking to you again and sooner or later, with no defense, you will answer the call. In a medical drug and alcohol detox situation with proper support, you don’t need to go through all that suffering and drama. We will treat the depression and lethargy. You will get nutritious meals and proper hydration. We will help you get healthy sleep. No, you’re not going to bounce out of bed after 24 hours and feel like a million bucks. But we can promise you, you will be back to 100% way faster doing it our way with our help than you will going the DIY drug and alcohol detox route.
Medical detox from Alcohol or Benzodiazepines
There are three categories of drug with withdrawal symptoms that can actually kill you. They are: alcohol, benzodiazepines (like Xanax and Klonopin) and barbiturates (which most people don’t take anymore). Opioid withdrawal can make you wish you were dead, but it rarely kills people in normal health. These other three categories are different. Deadly grand mal seizures in alcohol withdrawal are well documented. The same thing can happen to people who quit using benzodiazepines without medical support. The scariest part is it’s hard to predict. Some people are much more seizure prone than others and they often don’t know it until they have one.
Even with all of that information, it’s impossible to predict who may have a seizure in withdrawal and how serious it may be. The point of all of this, is that it is a very real risk. Especially with alcohol. Benzodiazepines and some sedatives and tranquilizers and barbiturates. This is a risk you do not want to take.
Never, Ever Attempt to Detox Off Alcohol, Benzos or Barbiturates at Home
You should never attempt to detox yourself from any substance of abuse. But it is especially true when it comes to these three. Don’t even think about it. We are not exaggerating when we tell you it could cost you your life. We will always give you straight answers here and this isn’t any different. It is much too dangerous to play with detoxing yourself off of alcohol, benzos or barbiturates. It requires careful medical supervision to be done safely and even then, you can never eliminate every possible risk. If you remember nothing else you have read on this page, remember THIS and remember the name Transformations Care.
