The first step toward recovery from drug and alcohol addiction can be one of the hardest. It takes courage to enter a detoxification program knowing you’ll endure the discomfort and pain of withdrawal symptoms.
Your apprehension about withdrawal may have played a part in continuing your addiction, but Hope Canyon Recovery can help you break that cycle. Through our personalized detox programs, your journey can begin with a more comfortable transition into recovery.
If you or a loved one is thinking about enrolling in drug detox in San Diego, Hope Canyon is here for you. Without medical intervention, you’re likely to experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms as the toxic chemicals leave your body. Depending on the severity of your addiction, withdrawal symptoms can range from mild or moderate (headaches, fever and chills, shaking, anxiety) to severe (delirium tremens, seizures, heart attacks). These symptoms can even lead to death.
But at Hope Canyon, our clinical staff provides medical intervention to make the withdrawal symptoms manageable. They also monitor you 24/7 to make sure you’re safe and healthy throughout your entire detox experience.
Our safe detox techniques help you break the physical bonds of drug and alcohol addiction so you can begin the mental and emotional journey of recovery. Whether your addiction is mild, moderate or severe, we provide the compassionate care and medical supervision you need to get through withdrawal successfully. You never have to feel alone or frightened; we’re here to help you along the way.
Hope Canyon puts an emphasis on your well-being by making your recovery goals our own. We do more than give you a warm bed and medical supervision during detox: our community resources make it easy to continue your journey after you exit our programs. We’re committed to your long-term success.
Once you’ve safely gotten through the detox phase, you’ll be ready to move on to the real work of recovery. Hope Canyon’s behavioral health staff works with you to ensure the best possible treatment at every phase — including residential inpatient treatment or our partial hospitalization program.
