Orange County Detox

The first step in recovery begins with our Orange County drug & alcohol detox program. It’s what happens when you stop taking drugs or alcohol long enough for your body to clear it all out. This time is also known as withdrawal. Ask anyone who’s been through detox, and they’ll probably say it was the worst part of their recovery journey. But it’s also critical. Balboa Horizons mitigates the withdrawal and makes detoxing, safe and as comfortable as possible with 24/7 care.

What to Expect in Detox

As you go through detox, you’ll be emotionally and physically vulnerable. You may want to stop and try again some other time. You might even feel anger toward the people who are trying to help you because it’s so much easier to go backward than forwards. Addiction means your body has come to prefer drugs or alcohol to its natural state. The sudden withdrawal is why it takes professionals to help you decontaminate your body from drugs or alcohol.  Think about it like a body cleanse that your body is fighting your mind for control. It’s not just difficult to do on your own—it can be dangerous.

But your mind is stronger than your body. Addiction will always be a team of one and we are a team of many. Our staff will let you know what to expect and provide a safe, caring environment for you to win this battle. We’ll be with you every step of the way, our 24-hour nursing staff will ensure a safe detox. When it’s over, you’ll be transitioned to one of our residential treatment facilities to continue your road to recovery.
