What is Drug Detox?

Drug detox is a process where you remove any residual toxic compounds that have accumulated in your body because of regular drug abuse. The symptoms experienced during this process are referred to as withdrawal symptoms.

Common symptoms include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Hallucinations
  • Insomnia
  • Cramps
  • Sweating 
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

When you come to our drug detox center in South Bay, you will undergo an initial assessment, which will include a complete mental and physical history. This information is used to determine things like how long your withdrawal should last, what types of medications might be best to have prepared so that you are as comfortable as possible, and what individualized therapies and programs would be best for the rest of your care.

Don’t wait. Let us help you today. Call our team to start your assessment.

How Long is Detox?

The length of your detox is highly individualized. It is based in large part on your history of drug abuse, what substances you have used, for how long, and how much you use. 

After your initial assessment, we can give you a closer estimate as to the time frame, but in most cases, it’s an average of three to six days.

Symptoms typically begin within the first 12 hours, depending on the substance you have used, and they gradually increase in severity over the next several days before tapering off and decreasing for the last few days.

We are here to help. Call our team now to learn more about your withdrawal process.

Do I Need to Use a Drug Rehab Center in South Bay?

There are several reasons why you should avoid trying to detox at home or do things cold turkey.

The biggest reason you should work with a qualified drug detox center in South Bay is that trying to detox alone can be incredibly dangerous. Depending on the substances you have used and the longevity of your history of drug abuse, symptoms can indirectly cause serious health problems and even death. 

Self-medicated detox is also much less effective because it’s challenging and painful without the requisite medical resources to ensure comfort and safety during the process. With a more painful process, individuals are much more likely to experience relapse because of the extreme pain, and that relapse often means a higher dose of drugs than they would normally use and a subsequent overdose.

In fact, overdose deaths are more common after an individual tries to detox without professional help.

Detoxing from any substance comes with a wide range of painful side effects. Depending on the substance to which you are addicted, those side effects can be primarily:

  • Physical 
  • Psychological

When you work with a qualified South Bay drug rehab center, you have medical staff members on hand throughout the course of your detox to help you manage those physical and psychological symptoms.

For example, a therapist might prepare you for what type of psychological symptoms, such as hallucinations, you might expect, given your background in substance abuse. A doctor might similarly provide over-the-counter medication to help with common withdrawal symptoms such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Muscle pain
  • Cramps
  • Fever
  • Dehydration

More importantly, detox from specific substances like opioids and benzodiazepines comes with inherently higher risks and requires things like FDA-approved medication such as Methadone, naltrexone, or buprenorphine, which can only be administered at federally approved opioid treatment centers like ours.

If you are struggling with an addiction to any type of opioid, including prescriptions or heroin, you cannot get the medication you need for a safe and successful detox unless you work with our facility.

You can get help now. Reach out to our drug rehab center in South Bay to tour the facility.

Ongoing Care

When you check into our drug detox center in South Bay for opioid or benzodiazepine detox programs, part of the FDA-approved medication that you receive is contingent upon participation in ongoing care.

That is why our facility provides access to ongoing, individualized treatment programs complete with evidence-based, holistic activities and aftercare planning to help transition you back to normalcy when you complete your ongoing care.

After your MD-supervised detox, we can help you transition into the next level of care:

Residential Care

Many clients benefit from our luxury residential inpatient rehab programs, where they can check in for a program between thirty and forty-five days and remain disconnected from daily stress or responsibilities while focusing full-time on recovery. 

Our inpatient and detox programs focus on providing a peaceful place where you can work through the causes of your addiction with private sessions that include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Daily exercise
  • Massage therapy
  • Yoga and meditation sessions

Aftercare and Alumni Programs

We also help you tackle relationship issues that may have arisen as a result of your addiction. We can provide things like marriage and relationship therapy sessions as well as support for education and career opportunities. Our aftercare and alumni programs are designed to help you connect with complimentary facilities, therapies, and services that are long-lasting.

No matter which of these programs you choose, we will ensure you are prepared to leave our care with our aftercare planning. With aftercare planning, you receive resources and education, such as support groups in your local area, which can ensure you continue with any support and care after treatment.

We also provide an Alumni Program to our clients. The alumni program represents an important community of past and present clients who have been in similar circumstances and can offer encouragement, support, and understanding. 

One of the biggest contributors to relapse after treatment is loneliness and isolation, but participation in our alumni program and utilizing the resources offered through the aftercare planning can help prevent this.

If you are ready to get help, contact our team to start your assessment and your drug detox program.

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...

Dan W.

I was dying inside out. I couldn't breathe I was drowning In Hate anger pain self pity. I couldn't see anymore just darkness then some how veritas popped up on my laptop screen. they then called and had a solution for every reason I had to not go...

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...
