Drug & Alcohol Detox in California

Take the first step toward recovery with Invigorate Behavioral Health’s Medical Detox Program

For men and women who are struggling with addiction, treatment begins with medically assisted detox. Invigorate Behavioral Health is a residential medical detox and treatment facility in California offering 24-hour care and medical guidance. Our facility features exclusive residential housing and a team of passionate healthcare professionals who are there to ensure your safety as you begin your recovery journey.

Understanding the Need for Supervised Detox

Detox can be challenging and potentially risky because the discomfort of withdrawal makes people with addiction want to keep using drugs or alcohol. Detox centers provide medication to assist with withdrawal and offer a supportive environment for individuals struggling with addiction. This ensures that they do not have to face withdrawal symptoms on their own.

Withdrawal symptoms can vary based on the type of substance someone is detoxing from, but common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Body aches
  • Muscle pain

Detox facilities can administer medications to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and provide a therapeutic environment for those struggling with addiction so they don’t have to suffer through withdrawal. Instead, clients get support from the very start, and are armed with the tools and resources they need to stay sober.

What to Expect at Our California Detox Center

Medical detoxification is the safest approach to quitting drugs or alcohol. At Invigorate Behavioral Health, client safety is our top priority. Our inpatient treatment center offers comprehensive medical detoxification services overseen by experienced medical professionals. With a focus on individualized care, we tailor detox programs to meet each person’s specific needs, ensuring a comfortable and supportive environment throughout the process.

Intake and Assessment

When clients come to our detox center, our team checks their overall health, including physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. The team will learn about the scope of your substance abuse, the state of your psychological health, and the goals you have in mind for treatment. Using this information, they’ll develop a customized treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Medical Stabilization

With client safety being the top priority, medications are often used to manage withdrawal symptoms and alleviate discomfort. Different medications are used for detoxing from different substances. For alcohol withdrawal, Ativan or Valium may be used, while Suboxone may be used for opioid withdrawal.
While medications help ease withdrawal symptoms, nurses and medical staff monitor client’s vitals and conduct frequent assessments to further promote comfort during this stage of recovery. Having 24-hour medical supervision can eliminate the risk of complications as well as the risk for relapse.


During detox individual and group therapy sessions are overseen by licensed substance abuse and mental health professionals. Although the primary goal of detox is to treat the physical symptoms of your addiction, much of what people experience during withdrawal is emotional and mental, too. Therapy sessions provide clients with a supportive outlet to discuss their emotions and learn healthy coping skills. Daily peer-led support groups may also be available.

How Long Does Detox Last?

The average length of detox is between 3 and 5 days, however, it can be longer for people with more severe substance use disorders. Ultimately, the detox process is different for everyone, so how long people spend in detox varies based on their needs.

Transitioning From Detox to Substance Abuse Treatment

Overcoming alcohol or drug addiction requires more than just a brief stay at a detox facility. Most people benefit from continuing their treatment at a rehab program.

Before you leave detox, a counselor will work with you to recommend the right treatment program for you. At Invigorate Behavioral Health, our inpatient rehab option offers a seamless transition from detox to treatment, allowing you to continue your journey toward recovery without interruption. Our program helps you understand why you’re addicted, teaches you how to cope, and creates a plan to prevent relapse.

With a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including therapists, counselors, and medical staff, we offer a comprehensive approach to addiction treatment. Through individual therapy sessions, group counseling, educational workshops, and holistic therapies, you’ll gain the tools and insights needed to rebuild your life free from drugs and alcohol.

How Much Does Medical Detox Cost in California?

The cost of drug and alcohol detox programs varies depending on several factors, such as:

  • Location
  • Length of treatment
  • Prescriptions
  • Insurance

While detox is covered by insurance, the extent of coverage depends on the insurance plan, deductible, and co-pay.
