men attend residential detoxThe first stage of any reputable drug treatment program in California and beyond involves inpatient medical detox. This sub-emergency treatment stabilizes acute health risks, including overdose, respiratory depression, and other adverse physical and psychological reactions. We know that physical withdrawal symptoms along with dysphoria produced by drug withdrawal are powerful drivers of relapse. In the early days of recovery, patients haven’t yet experienced the rewards of getting clean. A person detoxing at Avedis’ residential detox center in Tarzana will be surrounded by people who really feel their pain.

Our Tarzana Detox Team

The treatment team at our Tarzana detox is calm, competent, and alert. We won’t lie to you—detox isn’t a walk in the park. However, detoxing at Avedis is easier, less painful, and more effective than trying to detox alone or in the emergency room. You simply will not find a more supportive and experienced group of clinicians than our team at Avedis Detox. Our medical staff treats patients like family as they work to safely mediate symptoms of withdrawal and increase patient stability. Keeping people in treatment during this critical stage lays the foundation for lasting recovery. To us, addiction recovery is personal. Our founder moved from the LA restaurant business to the addiction recovery sphere after losing his brother to a drug overdose in 2013. When we look at our patients’ faces, we don’t see addicts; we see human beings with tremendous potential.

How Can I Help My Loved One in Detox?

Dealing with a family member when they are going through stages of withdrawal poses challenges to many California families. Drug withdrawal is difficult for family members and loved ones to tolerate for many reasons. After prolonged use of certain substances, people’s ability to tolerate any sort of pain and discomfort is diminished. This makes people who are experiencing withdrawal act in ways they otherwise would never dream of acting. Most of our patients at Avedis are withdrawing from some combination of opioids and some combination of stimulants. Indications that your loved one needs help getting their addiction under control include the following:

  • Inability to consistently abstain from drug use
  • Impairments in behavior and impulse control
  • Cravings for drugs that override all else
  • Difficulty recognizing behavior concerns
  • Consistent interpersonal relationship turmoil
