– Just Getting Started –

Because your stay with us may very well begin with our safe, gentle, staff supervised drug detoxification for your drug of addiction, it’s important you understand a little more about the process.

We know intimately the severity of withdrawal symptoms that can be brought on by the drug detox process… if improperly administered. That’s why the detox you receive at Journey Malibu will be monitored carefully, and staff supervised by an independently affiliated physician trained in the latest pain-free detox protocols. These include the use of Subutex and Suboxone, two of the most advanced drug detox treatments available today. “Buprenorphine (Subutex) is in a class of medications called opioid partial agonist-antagonists, and Naloxone (which is combined with Buprenorphine in Suboxone) is in a class of medications called opioid antagonists.” (Source: Buprenorphine at NCBI National Center for Biotechnology Information ) What this means is these treatments allow the addict to go through the detox comfortably, and emerge from the process with little to no cravings for his or her drug of abuse.

– Don’t Let Fear Stand in the Way Of Your Recovery –

Frightened by the thought of being strapped to hard beds…?
Having seizures in cold, dark rooms…?
While your cries for help are ignored by unfeeling doctors?

We invite you to kiss those nightmarish thoughts goodbye and replace them with the pleasing images of our warm, nurturing, luxurious facility, where we offer a drug detox that is comfortable and pain-free.

At Journey Malibu, we are committed to getting you started comfortably on your path to recovery. We understand the challenge of “kicking” opiates, and that, for some, the fear of the detox process may keep them from seeking treatment entirely. At Journey Malibu, providing you with freedom from addiction is our primary goal; and healthy drug detox is the beginning.

Drug detox can be performed in many different ways depending on where you decide to receive treatment. Most drug detox centers simply provide treatment to avoid physical withdrawal to alcohol & other drugs. Ideally, a trained detox facility, like ours at Journey Malibu, will incorporate counseling and therapy during detox to help with the psychological distress that the individual may experience as well.

– The Goal of Drug Detox –

The goal of the drug detoxification process is to rid the body of toxins accumulated by drug use. The first step of drug detox is drug withdrawal. The definition of withdrawal is “Discontinuation of the use of an addictive substance and the physiological and mental readjustment that accompanies such discontinuation.” Once an individual has discontinued using drugs, physical and behavioral withdrawal symptoms may follow.

Drug detoxification is intended to relieve physical symptoms like:

• Shaking or tremors
• Headaches
• Vomiting
• Sweating
• Restlessness
• Loss of appetite
• Sleeplessness
• Hyperactivity
• Convulsions

– Transition From Drug Detox To Residential Treatment

Interventions used in rehab treatment can be introduced during Drug detoxification to help the Addict complete the process and make the transition to long-term treatment at a Malibu Drug Rehab. It is important that interventions be introduced as early as possible. Such interventions can include treatment for psychological, physical, family, and other needs as well as “cue exposure”—the repeated exposure to the sight, smell, and taste of Drug without attendant intoxication effects, which diminishes the physiological and subjective responses originally associated with the Drug cues.

At JOURNEY MALIBU’s Recovery Center, we have found numerous factors are key to successful Drug detoxification. Such factors include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Acknowledging there is a problem and deciding to do something about it.
  2. Getting rid of all the drugs and paraphernalia.
  3. Dropping friends and associates that are tied to our drug problem.
  4. Seeking and accepting spousal support, or support from friends, or relatives.
  5. Preparing for symptoms with the support of a professional.
  6. If medication is needed for a few days or longer, it must be handled carefully, as one addiction can easily replace another.
