Gender-Specific Detox for Men

Reasons to participate in detoxification for adult men at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

When you become addicted to alcohol or another drug, your body adapts to the presence of the substance you have been using. When you try to end your use of this substance, your body may respond with a variety of unpleasant symptoms. This experience is known as withdrawal.

Depending on several factors, such as the type of substance you’ve become addicted to and the length of time you’ve been using that substance, trying to complete withdrawal without professional care can involve both physical pain and psychological distress. In certain cases, attempting to complete withdrawal without proper assistance can be dangerous.

If withdrawal symptoms have prevented you from ending your substance use long enough to begin therapy, our men’s detoxification, or detox, program may be the ideal place to start your recovery journey.

Detox at Sierra by the Sea is a safe, secure, and highly supportive environment where you can complete the withdrawal process with maximum safety and minimal discomfort. We offer gender-specific detox services that meet the specific recovery needs of the men who come to us to heal from the substance use disorders that have been barriers to their health and happiness.

Following your successful completion of detox at our facility in Newport Beach, California, you can transition directly to our residential program. Typical length of stay in the men’s detox program is three to five days depending on your unique needs and progress.

Our men’s detoxification program accepts adult males age 18 and older who have a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder, but we also provide care for men who have certain co-occurring conditions.

What Happens During the Detox Program?

Features of detoxification for men at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

When you enter the men’s detox program at Sierra by the Sea, you’ll be under the care of a team of experienced professionals, including a psychiatrist and nurses. These dedicated experts will monitor your progress, ensure your safety, and enhance your comfort throughout your time in detox at our facility in Newport Beach, California.

Our men’s detox program takes place within a closely monitored environment designed with the specific needs of our male residents in mind. You’ll benefit from the constant presence of members of your detox treatment team, and you will have no access to addictive substances. These features will keep you safe and prevent you from experiencing a relapse.

Depending on your needs, your detox team may include certain prescription medications in your personalized care plan. For example, if you’re taking part in detox due to a struggle with opioid addiction, you may receive a prescription for Suboxone, Subutex, or Vivitrol. These medications allow you to stop using opioids without experiencing the powerful cravings and other intense symptoms of this type of withdrawal. Our expert team may also incorporate Vivitrol and certain other medications into treatment for individuals who are completing detox for alcohol addiction.

Our detox professionals can also offer emotional and therapeutic support to help you manage any discomfort you may be experiencing so that you can remain focused on ridding your body of the substance to which you have become addicted. You may also have the opportunity to take part in the types of therapy that will be included in your residential care. Thus, you can begin to make therapeutic progress toward long-term recovery while you’re still taking part in our men’s detox program.
