DETOX & STABILIZATION

The Journey to a Better Life Begins

Medical detox and stabilization represent the first important step toward reclaiming your life, free from the shackles of substance abuse. At The Pointe Malibu Recovery Center, our personal 1-on-1 attention from addictionologists and other clinical professionals is a crucial factor in helping you to understand the process, allaying your fears and minimizing any discomfort.

Because we are so thorough and compassionate at our world-class beachfront facility, you receive a complete examination and assessment from our skilled medical and clinical team at the time of your admission. This enables us to determine exactly how to design your detox program for your own unique situation

Putting Fears and Misunderstandings to Rest

One of the things that we do before any detox begins is help you to understand exactly what you can expect during that period. And we also explain the very positive aspects of this treatment, in its ability to wean your body off the damaging chemicals that have constrained you from living a happy, fulfilling life. Keep in mind that this process is, among other things, restoring your normal metabolic function. And that means you will begin feeling better, both mentally and physically.

Surrounded by Professionals

When it is time for your detox, one of our highly qualified addictionologists will oversee the process for safety and efficiency. This should help to minimize any withdrawal symptoms or discomfort. For those with heightened medical health and mental health concerns, we have psychiatrists on hand, who will coordinate with our other physicians to ensure a smooth transition.

Skilled nurses and Incidental Medical Services (IMS) are available around-the-clock to monitor your status, provide relief from any withdrawal symptoms and help ensure your utmost safety. Our medical approach utilizes medications that reduce the severity of those potential symptoms. Should you have any issues of concern, our medical doctors are close by to address them almost immediately

Here are some of the things you can expect during your detox process:
  • Personalized plan designed around your particular condition
  • Supervision from a qualified addictionologist
  • Highly trained medical staff, available to you at a moment’s notice
  • Skilled nursing care to provide reassurance and relief from any withdrawal symptoms
  • Proper nutrition for an overall feeling of good health
  • Serene, comfortable setting that promotes healing

Clearing the Hurdle, Moving On

Completion of medical detox is an excellent starting point for launching your recovery from substance abuse and for providing stabilization for any mental health issues. Although it is only the first stage of treatment, it is a highly significant one that should eventually lead to a sense of empowerment as you conquer the subsequent stages of recovery. Once you have completed the detoxification process, and are no longer at risk of withdrawal symptoms, you will be more equipped to take on the next exciting phases of your journey.

Should you have any questions or concerns about medical detox, we invite you to voice them. We are always here to provide honest, straightforward answers that will hopefully give you a better understanding of the process. Keep in mind that everyone is different, so we personalize your detox program especially for you.
