Understanding Detox and Withdrawal

what to expect

If you take enough of them, all addictive substances are toxic to your brain and body. In other words, they cause damaging changes that degrade your ability to function. When you stop using drugs or alcohol, you go through a process of detoxification, or detox. This process occurs as your system gradually eliminates the remnants of substances you’ve already taken.

Detoxification tends to be straightforward and trouble-free for people who aren’t physically dependent on the substance in their system. However, addiction and physical dependence tend to go hand in hand. As a result, when you stop drinking or taking drugs, your dependent brain will probably respond by triggering withdrawal symptoms

All closely related addictive substances produce similar withdrawal effects. Take opiate/opioid withdrawal, for example. Whether you have a street drug or medication in your system, this process is more or less identical. The same basic principle holds true for withdrawal from:

  • Various forms of alcohol 
  • Illegal and prescription stimulants
  • Benzodiazepine and barbiturate sedatives

However, for any given substance, the intensity of your withdrawal symptoms can vary. Some people experience mild or moderate symptoms when they halt their substance use. Others develop more severe symptoms. In addition, some forms of withdrawal are generally more dangerous than others. Alcohol and sedative withdrawal, in particular, can sometimes produce serious complications.

The Reasons for Choosing a South Bay Drug and Alcohol Detox Center

your options

The potential effects of withdrawal are key to understanding the reasons for seeking professional detox. Many, if not most, people withdrawing from drugs or alcohol find the process unpleasant at best. This holds true even for those with milder symptoms. Without medical support, you may be able to tolerate your mental and physical distress. However, you may also decide to abandon your short-lived recovery and return to alcohol or drug use. 

Detoxification specialists understand the impact that withdrawal can have on your motivation to halt your substance use. That’s why one of the main objectives of detox programs is to decrease the strain withdrawal places on your brain and body. To fulfill this objective, a properly designed program will:

  • Evaluate you to determine your specific detox needs
  • Conduct detox in a comfortable, non-distracting setting
  • Keep a constant watch on your general health
  • Make sure you get adequate fluids and nutrition

In some cases, medications are used to address specific withdrawal symptoms.

There is also another crucial reason for choosing professional detox over a do-it-yourself approach. While most people experience no serious withdrawal complications, major problems can arise. These kinds of issues are especially common for longtime, heavy users of alcohol or sedatives. Detox professionals are well aware of the risks for complications. They pay close attention to any sign of problems. They also respond immediately to any situation that could place your well-being in jeopardy.

How Long Does It Take to Complete Substance Detox

we are here for you

Can anyone tell you in advance how long it will take you to detox from alcohol or drugs? Yes and no. It’s not possible to give a precise timeline that accurately predicts every detail of your experience. However, it is possible to provide a more general timeframe for each category of addictive substances.

Stimulant withdrawal typically comes with the shortest withdrawal timeline. Most people get this type of drug or medication out of their systems in three to five days. The average length of alcohol withdrawal ranges from a brief 48 hours up to 10 days.

For opiates and opioids, expected withdrawal times range from four to 20 days. Shorter times typically apply to opiates/opioids with rapid, brief drug effects. Longer times apply to drugs and medications in this category with slower-building, lengthier drug effects. 

People affected by sedative addiction should expect to follow a longer withdrawal timeline of two weeks to two months. That’s true because rapid sedative detox can trigger powerful withdrawal symptoms. To keep you safe and comfortable, you will be weaned from the substance in question. It is this weaning process that accounts for the longer detoxification process. 

A wide range of factors can alter the amount of time you need to complete detox. Contact the specialists at Atlas Healthcare Group for more information on these factors.

Moving on to Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab in South Bay

contact us today

A South Bay drug and alcohol detox center can do many things to establish a firm foundation for your addiction recovery. However, one thing it cannot do is protect you from future substance problems. This is not detox’s intended purpose. That’s why you should always view a detox program as just the first step in your longer-term sobriety. 

The logical and necessary companion to detox is drug and alcohol rehab. As its name implies, rehab’s goal is rehabilitating you and helping you create a substance-free lifestyle. It achieves this goal with medication, therapy and other treatment options that help you do such things as:

  • Avoid a short-term relapse back into substance use
  • Develop the skills and tools you need to maintain your abstinence over time
  • Practice what you’ve learned and apply it to real-world situations

Outpatient care may be enough to help you succeed in rehab. Alternatively, your situation may call for an inpatient approach instead. Inpatient services are a common requirement for people struggling with severe addiction. The decision to seek these kinds of services may also be based on other considerations.

Atlas Healthcare Group features inpatient rehab for residents of South Bay and neighboring communities. You can start treatment after completing one of our customized detox plans. You can also enter our program after receiving detox help from another provider. Talk to our professionals today to learn more about rehab at Atlas Healthcare Group.

Sean R.

I didn’t know it was possible to get sober until I went to silicon beach treatment center. They give you excellent support and have amazing communication with you at all times. The person who helped me out the most was Stephen Carr, the administration director. He was so genuine, down to earth and gave me motivation and inspiration every single day, but even on the days that I didn’t want it. He support me on my journey every step of the way and I couldn’t thank him enough till this day. I tried for 2 years to get sober and now I am already 10 months sober !

Justine C.

This treatment center is one of the reasons why I am alive today and clean and sober. The care I got from staff while my stay there was so genuine and caring. I can’t put in words how grateful I am to have passed through Silicon Beach Treatment Center. They will always have a place in my heart and if you are looking for help this is by far one of the best places there is out there.


Silicon is a great program. From the Clinical Director, Alisha (Ali) to House Managers like Stephen Castel, everyone cares and genuinely wants to help you recover in whatever ways they can. The sober livings are clean and spacious, and don’t feel crowded like housing in treatment often does. Groceries are provided with client input on what we like and want for the house
