Supervised Medical Detox in Long Beach

A medical detox is a period of time where the body gets rid of any drugs or alcohol in it. During this time, your body may react physically and mentally with uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms — some of which can be deadly. Detoxing requires medical monitoring and supervision. The time it takes to fully recover depends on individual factors, such as how long the drug was abused, the drug intake method, and your genes and family history.

There are inpatient and outpatient detox programs available. Here at Gratitude Lodge, we offer inpatient detox programs at Long Beach drug detox center. You’ll stay in our luxurious, welcoming rooms and have access to professionals during your recovery. Though detox sounds uncomfortable, it’s a crucial first step to starting your new life.

Getting the drugs or alcohol out of your system is the first step to recovery. Detoxing in a safe, professionally-staffed alcohol detox center in Long Beach is important because your brain may have become dependent on drugs or alcohol, which can affect its chemical makeup. In severe dependency cases, suddenly ending alcohol intake could lead to fatal seizures, and suddenly stopping the intake of benzos (benzodiazepine) could lead to delirium, a lost sense of self, and psychosis.

At Gratitude Lodge’s medical detox in Long Beach, our credentialed staff is trained and medically equipped to provide these on-site detox services. Our staff is also empathetic and can guide you through the emotional side of recovery. Detoxification can be the most difficult part of early recovery, which is why we offer personalized care, group therapy support, and an encouraging environment. At our detox in Long Beach CA, you are given the tools to succeed and benefit from a lasting recovery.

The Process of Detoxing

The time it takes to detox and the methods used depend on the length of drug abuse, methods of intake, and genetics. During evaluation, you can expect mental and physical screenings, providing family history, blood tests, and medication.

Because you may experience withdrawal symptoms, medical and mental therapies are provided. You may also receive addiction treatment drugs ranging from antidepressants to pills that suppress the desire for alcohol or drugs.

What Happens After Detox?

After undergoing detox, the initial physical phase of recovery, the journey towards healing involves essential mental steps. At our inpatient residential addiction treatment facility in Long Beach, we integrate structured activities, group therapy, and individual counseling into your daily routine. Once you complete the inpatient detox and recovery program, you’ll transition to outpatient care, granting you the flexibility to reside in your own home, maintain work or school commitments, and participate in therapy sessions on flexible daytime or evening schedules.

As you progress through medical therapy during detox, you’ll experience a noticeable improvement in the manageability of withdrawal symptoms. Subsequently, you’ll engage in group activities, follow a structured schedule for learning, foster a sense of responsibility, and regain self-sufficiency. Embracing each step from detoxification to outpatient rehabilitation lays a strong foundation for enduring recovery and significantly reduces the likelihood of relapse.

Inpatient Rehab in Long Beach

Many inpatient rehab programs adopt a holistic approach to treatment, addressing all aspects of a person’s health and wellbeing. Holistic therapies at residential rehab aim to promote healing on all levels, physical and mental, as well as emotional and spiritual.

Some of the most popular holistic interventions used in drug and alcohol rehab include:

  • Yoga
  • Acupuncture
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness

Along with holistic and spiritual healing, our inpatient rehab program still employs evidence-based practices as well to ensure that clients are receiving a full-spectrum of treatment at all levels of care. Some of the common evidence-based treatment methods you can expect at our Long Beach drug rehab include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Medication-assisted treatment
  • Dual diagnosis treatment and more

All of these practices can help to reduce stress levels and promote relaxation, crucial for those in recovery from addiction.
Gratitude Lodge Long Beach provides holistic inpatient drug addiction programs in combination with science-backed treatments.

Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment

The most effective approach to drug and alcohol addiction treatment in Long Beach is based on evidence-based practice (EBP), which involves the integration of clinical expertise with the best available clinical evidence personalized to the needs of each individual.

According to NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse), evidence-based addiction treatments can either be comprehensively delivered in isolation, or designed to supplement existing addiction treatment programs.

Medical interventions intended to mitigate withdrawal symptoms and cravings in those dependent on addictive substances are known as MAT (medication-assisted treatment) (MAT) and are evidence-based pharmacotherapies. The FDA approves buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone for the treatment of opioid use disorder. Disulfiram, naltrexone, and acamprosate are also approved by the FDA for the treatment of alcohol use disorder, and these medications can be effective both during detox and throughout ongoing treatment.

Evidence-based behavioral therapies aim to modify attitudes and behaviors associated with drug use by enhancing life skills and coping mechanisms. CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy), DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), family therapy, community reinforcement approach, contingency management, and motivational enhancement therapy are examples of evidence-based behavioral therapies. Ongoing care with evidence-based behavioral therapies typically results in the best treatment outcomes.

Substance Abuse Counseling in Long Beach

We offer advanced substance abuse counseling at our Long Beach location. Addiction counseling is a crucial aspect of treating drug addiction by addressing the underlying emotional, psychological, and social factors that contribute to addiction. Through counseling at rehab in Long Beach, you can gain a better understanding of your addiction, identify triggers and coping mechanisms, and develop strategies to overcome cravings and prevent relapse.

Counseling can help treat drug addiction at rehab in several ways, including:

Individual counseling

One-on-one sessions with a licensed therapist can help you explore your thoughts and feelings surrounding addiction, identify the root causes of your addiction, and develop strategies to overcome them.

Group therapy

Participating in group therapy sessions can provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can share your experiences and learn from peers with similar challenges. Group therapy can also help you develop healthy coping mechanisms and build a stronger sober support system.

Family counseling

Family therapy can help you repair relationships with your loved ones and address any issues that may have contributed to your addiction. Family members can also learn about addiction and how to support you in your recovery.


CBT is a type of behavioral therapy that focuses on identifying and changing self-defeating thoughts and behaviors that can contribute to addiction. CBT can help you develop healthier coping mechanisms and improve your resilience to prevent relapse from disrupting your recovery.

Counseling can be a critical component of addiction treatment by providing you with the tools and support you need to overcome addiction and sustain long-term sobriety. To learn more about our substance abuse counseling program, call our team today.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

When a substance use disorder and a mental health condition present simultaneously, this is clinically termed dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis is also known as a co-occurring disorder.

Addictions commonly implicated in dual diagnosis include:
  • Marijuana
  • Opioids/painkillers
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Alcohol
  • Cocaine
  • Meth
  • Heroin
Mental health disorders commonly implicated in dual diagnosis include:
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Schizophrenia

With co-occurring disorders, either condition may develop first. Research shows that integrated dual diagnosis treatment produces more favorable outcomes than treating only the addiction or the mental health condition separately. Addiction and mental health are closely intertwined, with one condition frequently feeding the other.

The duration of drug rehab in Long Beach can vary based on several factors, such as the severity of the addiction, the type of treatment program, and the individual’s progress. Common inpatient programs last for 30, 60, or 90 days, while most outpatient programs last for several months.

Both forms of treatment offer access to the same therapies. Inpatient programs provide intensive therapy in a residential treatment facility in Long Beach. In contrast, outpatient programs involve therapy sessions during the week, after which you return home or to a sober living community.
