Our medically-equipped drug and alcohol detox program is monitored 24/7 by a trained staff. We offer detox as an option for clients who have been using up until intake. Detox is required for Summit Malibu clients who are taking Benzodiazepines or consuming high quantities of alcohol frequently, because withdrawal from these substances can be deadly if not monitored by a doctor.

What is Detox?

People suffering from substance abuse or addiction may require detox, which is the period in which the body has to once again become accustomed to functioning without an illicit substance.

When a person regularly uses a drug or consumes alcohol, they build a tolerance to it. More and more of the substance is needed to achieve the same “high” or “buzz.” The body then becomes dependent on the substance, as it gets used to having the drug or alcohol in its system.

When a person abruptly stops using or drinking, the body can suffer from withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms vary based on the substance of abuse, but most are uncomfortable and painful. Withdrawal from some substances and from certain quantities of alcohol can be lethal, so detoxification is best done in a medically supervised environment. A drug and alcohol detox program should be part of any treatment center’s repertoire, as it is the safest way for clients to achieve the sobriety needed to face recovery.
