Balboa Horizons’ Men’s Residential Orange County Detox Program treats clients withdrawing from alcohol, benzodiazepines, opiates, and stimulates, and works exclusively with male clients. All staff and programs at the six-bed Orange Country center are also separate and gender specific, which studies show is more effective when treating addiction.

“By having our own Orange County Detox Program, we can truly provide the entire continuum of care for people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, while maintaining the standards of excellence that are the hallmark of Balboa Horizons’ treatment,” said Balboa Horizons’ Executive Director, Burr Cook.

In addition to 24-hour support staff, the center will be staffed with licensed nurses, and all detoxifications will be overseen by licensed medical physicians, including Balboa Horizon’s Medical Director, Dr. Elizabeth Roberts, Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology. With professional staff and appropriate protocols in place, individuals can detox safely and completely, supported with cutting edge detox protocols as well as the highest standards of therapeutic care.

“We are excited to be able to offer our clients the latest in medication support and therapeutic modalities to help them detox effectively in an environment that is comforting and supportive.” said Dr. Roberts.

For most, going through detoxification from addictive substances is an incredibly unpleasant process, and the hazards of attempting to detox on one’s range from severe discomfort to death. At Balboa Horizons, a professional detox can be carried out in the safest and most effective manner possible. Correct and comfortable detoxification is a complicated process which our professional staff and protocols are uniquely equipped to handle.
