Placerville Detox Center

When you first enter treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, the first and most important step is detoxification. This is the period of receiving professional guidance and comfort through the often-difficult withdrawal phase. Detox specialists will know how to identify and alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms.

Your body is going through a drastic shift at this time. It’s craving the substance that you’ve been using so long, and it’s not getting it. It’s responding by sending you signals of pain, restlessness, irritability, nausea and more.

Our Northern California Drug Detox Amenities

We want clients at our Placerville Drug Detox Center to be as comfortable as possible during this process. They will have the option to go on walks and enjoy nature or relax and get a massage. It’s all a part of our expansive holistic treatment program.

Our Placerville amenities include:

  • Massage three days a week
  • Yoga once a week
  • Lounge room with TV
  • Nature walks
  • Chef-prepared three meals a day
  • Nurse on staff 7 days a week

It may sound like an awful spot to be in, but once you pass through it, you’ll be in better place, ready to leave your addiction in the rearview mirror. And if the process does sound daunting, don’t worry. It’s our job to make it more comfortable and productive and giveyou the support you need to make it, and we’ve done it for thousands.

Holistic Drug Detox at Elevate

holistic rehab mind body spirit

At Elevate Addiction Services, drug and alcohol detox is not an uncomfortable nightmare of symptoms and suffering. We have trained and compassionate support staff to help attend to your needs during this physically stressful time. You will be more comfortable and will get through your detox with minimal issues. Many clients cannot believe how easy their detox went at Elevate!

Going Easy on the Medication

Drug Detox FacilityMany detox facilities are quick to prescribe an overwhelming amount of medications to new clients – such as methadone or buprenorphine for an opiate/opioid addiction. Clients can become hooked on detox meds and the rehabs will not cut them off.

At Elevate, our doctors are trained to prescribe any detox meds that are medically necessary and will make for a comfortable and successful detox, while also using a protocol that is going to get them off the meds in a timely fashion. We want clients to be off the medication before moving on to inpatient treatment, so their heads are clear and they can concentrate on issues, not feeling constant effects of medications.

So when we talk about holistic detox, we mean drug-free ways to help the client through the withdrawal process, even if the client is temporarily on medication. This involves frequent massages and aromatherapy to ease the tension and discomfort of withdrawal. Nutritional supplements can also help during this time.

Additionally, we will begin slowly ramping up the client’s exercise and nutritional regimen during this first month, starting with light walks and breathing. Many of our holistic forms of treatment will commence during the detox phase, as well.

Which Substances Require Detox?

People who enter rehab for being addicted to one of the following substances generally require detox at the start of treatment:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines (such as Valium, Klonopin and Xanax)
  • Cocaine and crack
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Opioids (such as oxycodone, fentanyl and codeine)

Although most treatment centers will only put clients through detox for the substances listed above, Elevate wants every new client to experience a comfortable period of change, before jumping into the main program. Any addictive substance will elicit some form of withdrawal, and we want to be there to comfort each and every client through this process.

Detox clients stay at a smaller, private cabin about 1000 feet above our main campus.  Once they complete detox, they can fully integrate with our inpatient clients. Detox at Elevate is a highly customized process, based on the client’s substance of choice, withdrawal symptoms and other factors. Our detox specialists are ready to monitor and help each client around the clock until they graduate to the inpatient phase of treatment.

You earn each accomplishment in this program – and I have felt a sense of accomplishment that was lacking in my life before coming here. The program taught me that I am empowered over my addictive past and that I am able to handle life without drugs and alcohol.
