Addiction Detox

Addiction Detox

At The View, we understand that each client's unique background will help inform their treatment program. Treating an addiction early on is important for a successful outcome. There is not a one-size-fits-all solution to detox treatment. Effective addiction treatment should help you focus on all aspects of your life, not just the substances abused or the addiction. An effective treatment program also encourages a person to slow down and reflect during their stay at a facility.

Addiction Detox at The View in Los Angeles

Detox is the first step in overcoming addiction. When you quit a substance, you will go through some unpleasant side effects. For example, if you are detoxing from an opiate, you might experience nausea, hypertension, insomnia, and other symptoms. The whole point of detox treatment at a luxury facility, like The View, is to help you deal with these unpleasant symptoms in a comfortable and safe environment.

The View's, unique to the Los Angeles area, offers luxurious amenities to clients. These include a pool, hot tub, and breathtaking spa to help the client relax, reflect, and go through their detox treatment comfortably.

Alcohol Addiction Detox

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, alcohol is the most commonly abused substance. In 2008, 23.1% of people admitted to a publicly funded substance abuse program abused alcohol; 18.3% of people admitted to a publicly funded program abused alcohol in combination with a second drug. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms typically include nausea, fever, fatigue, and other unpleasant side effects. Withdrawal can start within two hours of the last drink.

Drug Addiction Detox

Other commonly abused substances include opiates, heroin, and benzodiazepines. Withdrawal symptoms and timelines for these drugs can vary. For example, the withdrawal timeline for benzos depends upon its half-life (how quickly the body absorbs the drug).  With benzos, withdrawal can start within 24 hours or be delayed for up to two weeks, based upon the drug's half-life.

Why Clients Choose The View as Their Los Angeles Detox Center

People choose The View because our staff understands that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to addiction detox. Our 6-bed facility is small enough to make sure that clients get the one-on-one interaction needed to help beat the addiction. Our detox and stabilization programs are unique to the Los Angeles area because we encourage clients to slow down, enjoy the facility, and recover after going through the detox phase of treatment. After detox, clients typically take 30 to 60 days to stabilize at our facility.

The View's detox and stabilization program treats more than just the addiction. Our individual counseling/therapy sessions, group therapy, and stress reduction programs help clients deal with the original pain that caused the addiction. The View also offers massage, meditation, and yoga programs to help clients with self-reflection as they go through treatment.
