Why a Medically Managed Detox for Painkillers?

Our programs at Veritas Detox are medically managed, and this is important when you’re dependent on pain relievers. Prescription painkillers can change your brain’s chemistry and affect you in many ways. When you attempt to stop taking them or even cut back on how much you take, your body can react with withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms for painkillers can range in severity, but even when they’re mild, they can be a major obstacle to receiving further treatment and achieving recovery.

A professional painkillers detox dramatically increases the chances of successfully going through withdrawal so you can take the next steps in your recovery journey.

Specific benefits of a professional detox for painkillers include:

  • Safety: Safety is our main priority at our drug and alcohol detox in Los Angeles. Many pain-relieving drugs, such as opioids, can lead to severe withdrawal symptoms. With medical supervision at Veritas Detox, you are in a safe environment where trained professionals monitor your condition and respond promptly if needed.  
  •  Individualized care: Each person’s experience with painkiller addiction and withdrawal is unique. Attending a medically managed detox program helps your healthcare providers tailor your treatment plans to your needs. Factors like the dosage and type of drug, duration of use, and co-occurring psychiatric conditions all influence the detox process. Also considered are any previous detox experiences. Personalized care approaches maximize your comfort and are most effective while minimizing risks.
  • Symptom management: When you’re under the care of medical professionals at our painkillers detox, they can provide medicines or interventions to alleviate your symptoms and manage complications. This could include medications to address specific symptoms or supportive therapies to promote overall well-being.
  • Psychological support: During a medical detox, both your physical and psychological needs are considered. When you’re struggling with addiction, you might face a range of underlying mental health symptoms. Medical detox can provide emotional support and address the physical and psychological aspects of your symptoms.
  • Transitioning to further treatment: Detox is the first step in the recovery process, but it’s not a standalone addiction treatment. A medically managed detox at Veritas Detox can help facilitate a seamless transition to ongoing addiction treatment and support services.

When you begin your recovery journey with a medically managed painkiller detox, you’re in a safe space with a care team that takes an individual and comprehensive approach. If appropriate for your needs, following a detox at our center, you can transition to our luxury residential inpatient rehab in Los Angeles or another level of care.

What to Expect During a Detox for Painkillers

During your painkillers detox at Veritas Detox, you can expect:

  • Detox for painkillers will start with a thorough medical assessment. When you initially arrive at our Los Angeles detox center, we’ll do a medical evaluation to gauge whether detoxing safely is right for your needs. You’ll also receive testing for co-existing health conditions and be treated accordingly.
  • Depending on your situation, you may go through a routine psychological assessment. We’re also equipped to provide an intensive psychological evaluation if needed. The psychological assessment helps your treatment team plan your detox.
  • You will be supported and comfortable during each step of your detox journey.

By prioritizing safety at our drug and alcohol detox center in California, delivering personalized care, symptom management and continuity of care, our programs lay the groundwork for a long-lasting recovery from addiction to painkillers.

Painkiller Withdrawal Symptoms

Symptoms of painkiller withdrawal vary depending on the type of drug, duration of use, dosage, health and physiology, and other factors.

Prescription painkillers that are commonly misused include opioids. These drugs are used for the management of pain and can lead to physical dependence as well as tolerance and addiction. There’s also a risk of overdose that stems from prescription opioid misuse.

Withdrawal occurs when you’ve been regularly taking a painkiller, and you suddenly stop or reduce your intake. As your brain and body attempt to adjust to the drug’s absence, withdrawal symptoms can manifest. Opioid (e.g., hydrocodone, morphine, oxycodone) withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Flu-like symptoms like sweating, chills, and muscle aches
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Agitation and anxiety
  • Yawning
  • Insomnia
  • Cravings
  • Goosebumps
  • Dilated pupils

What Our Clients Say About Us

Veritas came highly recommended and lived up to any expectations I might have had. I traveled halfway across the country to a place completely foreign to me in California and felt comfortable almost immediately which provided for a solid foundation in my Recovery...

Jo H. 11/19/2020

Veritas has not only given me the tools to stay sober but has also showed me how to live a happy and fulfilled life. I have been to several other places in an effort to get sober but none of them can even get close to what this place has truly done for me...

John A.

A little over a month ago I was home struggling with a bad drug problem. I had gotten a hold of a recruiter & they suggested “Veritas” in Los Angeles CA. This place is absolutely amazing & very helpful. The staff are great as well as their personal Chef. The meals are great & everything else is. It’s a very comfortable place...

Zach F.

Veritas has been life saving and life changing for my son, which has made a profound impact on our family, as a whole. My son has struggled with drug addiction since his late teens. He is about to turn 25, next month. He has been to detox/treatment multiple (4) times, but I truly feel this will be his last. He is 40+ days sober with a brand new zest for (sober) life...

Kelly F.

I'm not typically one for writing reviews but I truly believe this place saved my son's life. After numerous attempts to get clean in our area, we thought it was best to get away from the people and places that brought him to this point. His therapist was amazing and I feel that he finally got the one-on-one help that he actually needed!


Veritas saved my moms life! I can’t put into words how grateful I am for the staff there and the program they run. She’s been to treatment a few times in the last 4 years but always continued to drink. Now she’s coming up on a year sober and it’s amazing to see her grow...

Steve F.

This place definitely saved my brother's life. He had been to a few other centers previously, but there is a clear difference here. The staff truly cares and goes out of their way, and his therapist was great...

Nicholas Y.

This was a great for me to detox! The staff is very support and my 30 days went much faster than I anticipated . Although I know the “real work” begins when I get back home, this has been a great launching pad for me...
