Drug and alcohol detoxification are the first steps in recovery, yet fear of withdrawal is one of the biggest obstacles in the recovery process. At Avalon Malibu in California, we assist clients in drug and alcohol detox and help them overcome their fear, safely and comfortably.
When an individual arrives in our drug and alcohol detox program, the professional and caring staff will provide a full medical evaluation to confirm the need for detox. If detox is required, you will begin a personalized and medically supervised drug and alcohol detox program where you are monitored around the clock for safety, comfort and the reduction of withdrawal symptoms.
Through our substance abuse detoxification treatment programs, we keep our clients safe and comfortable as they withdraw from chemical dependency.
Avalon Malibu specializes in the detox of many harmful substances, including:
At our gorgeous detox facility in Malibu, California, we have private, mostly single rooms that are beautifully appointed. Avalon is the only treatment center in Malibu that has direct access to the beach and serene Pacific Ocean.
One of the most important parts of detox and addiction treatment is counseling with licensed and experienced therapists. Avalon Malibu’s one-on-one, group and family therapy, as well as community-based resources and referrals such as self-help groups, help clients improve their relationships and their ability to function in the community. Avalon’s treatment provide each patient the tools they need to accomplish lifelong sobriety goals.
A key tool for our clients to continue on the path to recovery is our use of the Earl Hightower, 10-session recovery experience called “The Bridge from Treatment to Recovery”.
Avalon Malibu is also the premier prescription drug detox center of choice. Our client’s prescription drug addiction can be treated by either behavioral or pharmacological programs, or a combination of both, based on the individual’s specific needs. These resources are not widely seen in other addiction treatment centers.
Our professional staff always assists each individual in developing a customized plan of action to achieve and maintain long-term abstinence from using drugs or alcohol.
Avalon Malibu works with the individual in a holistic approach that considers anger and stress management, employment skills, and other tools to impart well-being.
Our dietitians and therapists work together to plan a specific program for each of our clients. Diet and exercise play an important role in the healing and recovery process at Avalon Malibu.
Because drug and alcohol addiction often causes malnutrition and energy, and tissues can become strained during withdrawal, good nutrition is essential during the detoxification process.
At Avalon Malibu, we provide a diverse menu of nutritionally balanced meals and snacks in order to combat malnutrition as part of our holistic treatment plan. When a client arrives for detoxification, we must eliminate the exposure to all toxic substances and introduce foods that assist detoxification and support healing.
We provide clients foods that are rich in protein, vitamins like B-12, and key fatty acids that can restore the body to its healthy state during drug and alcohol detox. Nutritional supplements including various vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are often prescribed as well as herbal supplements and natural herbs such as cloves, garlic, cayenne pepper, ginger root, peppermint and myrrh to help the body heal naturally from the inside out.
Proper nutrients can be very helpful during drug and alcohol detox. Water is also essential to clear out organs, cells, tissues and the entire lymphatic system and body. Extra fiber can also help the colon to function, which pulls more toxins out of the body.
Clients are also encouraged to exercise, read and meditate, while keeping their minds focused on the positive changes happening in their lives.
