Top Rated Drug Detox Program in San Francisco

Drug addiction occurs in the lives of thousands of Americans each day and many are seeking support for overcoming substance abuse through an addiction treatment center. To heal effectively from a substance use disorder, it is important to address the physical, emotional, and mental addiction to drugs with a comprehensive treatment plan. Addiction treatment is a time for you to delve deep into what has been fuelling your drug addiction all along and heal from the inner emotions or deep-seeded traumas that have influenced your addictive behaviors.

Before you can do the work of healing from your underlying causes of addiction, you must treat and heal from the physical dependence and addiction that has developed to drugs and alcohol through a drug detox program. San Francisco residents prefer Novo Detox for a drug detox program for the individualized care provided to each patient entering our treatment center. Your health and well-being are important to us, and we work diligently to ensure your safety and comfort are maintained as you move through this important phase of your addiction treatment program.

What Is Detox Like?

The focus of your drug detox program is to provide you with an opportunity to safely rid your body of the harmful toxins of drug abuse. The ongoing support and guidance of licensed medical professionals and addiction therapists will monitor your health and well-being throughout your drug detox process. As you stop using drugs and begin your drug detox program, your body will begin to restore its functioning to a normal level. During this process, you will experience side effects also known as withdrawal symptoms due to the physical dependency that has developed on your drug of choice. During your drug detox program, you will be provided with medical care and therapeutic methods that will work to alleviate the severity of your drug withdrawal symptoms and support you in safely and successfully overcoming your substance use disorders.

What to Expect During Drug Detox?

When you first arrive at our recovery center to begin your drug detox program, you will meet with our admission staff and onsite medical professionals, including licensed nurses and physicians, who will complete initial intake paperwork and assessments with you. During this time, our team will work to gather information on your history with drug abuse including how long you have been engaging in drug abuse, the frequency at which you use drugs, and how much you use at any given time. This information helps our team gain a better understanding of the severity of your drug addiction allowing our team to create an appropriate treatment plan that will best suit your needs.

It is also important for us to know any presenting mental health disorders that you may be experiencing along with physical health conditions. Having this information will better inform our team on how to provide medical interventions and treatments that will maintain your health and well-being without doing any harm or disrupting the stability of your physical and mental health. Depending on your unique circumstances, you may be offered support of a dual diagnosis treatment program or a medication-assisted treatment program that will better assist you in a safe, smooth detox process.

Symptoms of Detox by Drug Type

Your drug detox process will be unique to your specific circumstances and history of drug abuse. Depending on your drug of choice, your experience in drug detox will vary. Each specific drug will produce a variety of withdrawal symptoms that will need to be treated with appropriate treatment methods. At Novo Detox, our team is specifically trained to support individuals in overcoming withdrawal symptoms from any substance in a safe, comfortable fashion regardless of the severity of their withdrawal symptoms. Your safety and comfort are our top priority.
