Recovery from addiction begins with admitting that there is a problem and taking the first steps toward getting clean. Detox is one of the most crucial parts of the recovery process. It can take several days or even weeks for a drug to fully leave a person’s system, and the recovering addict will be especially vulnerable during that time. Removing all external concerns and providing caring, professional oversight throughout the detoxification process helps to establish the best and safest foundation for recovery.

Orange County Drug & Alcohol Detox

If you’re looking for drug detox in Orange County, our professionally staffed program offers the one-on-one attention and support that you or your loved one deserves.

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.

What Makes Us Different For Detox

We offer several benefits in our Orange County detox that help us to stand apart from the competition:

  • Our team is made up of medical professionals who specialize in addiction and recovery. From the doctors overseeing the medical needs of patients in detox to the therapists licensed to help aid recovery, our team members have the knowledge and experience to provide safety and care to our patients.
  • We maintain a small number of beds and focus on providing one-on-one attention and care to every person in our program. Our treatment philosophy recognizes that every patient is unique and deserves a personalized treatment plan.
  • We handle every aspect of recovery from detox through to residential and outpatient treatment and therapy and stand by our patients throughout their recovery journeys.
  • By providing gender-specific programs (programs for men and women), we allow patients to recover in an environment that’s tailored to their needs and eliminates unnecessary distractions.

We are aware of the challenges and risks faced by those undergoing drug withdrawal. Our inpatient detox program allows individuals the space to come down from drugs safely and under total supervision without needing to worry about life stresses and other triggers. We allow patients to focus on recovery first and foremost before beginning therapies to help with long-term coping and permanent lifestyle changes.
