Premier Detoxification Program for Women

Sierra by the Sea provides on-site detoxification for women age 18 and older. Our gender-specific detox program in Newport Beach, California, is a safe and supportive environment where women receive personalized care from experienced professionals. Women who complete detox at Sierra by the Sea take an essential step toward long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.

Gender-Specific Detox for Women

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

If you become addicted to alcohol or another drug, your body becomes accustomed to the presence of the substance you’ve been using. When you try to stop using this substance, your body can respond with a wide variety of potentially unsettling symptoms.

This experience is known as withdrawal, and trying to get through it successfully without professional assistance can result in psychological distress and physical pain. Even for a person familiar with the process, attempting to complete withdrawal without the right help can be harmful depending on a number of different factors.

That’s where choosing the women’s detox program at Sierra by the Sea can help. Detox at our facility in Newport Beach, California, takes place in a comfortable and secure atmosphere where adult women can go through the withdrawal process safely and with as little discomfort as possible. We offer gender-specific detox services that specifically address the needs of the women who turn to us in a time of need as a substance use disorder wreaks havoc on their lives.

Along with our women’s detox program, Sierra by the Sea offers the chance to transition directly to our residential program after you successfully complete detox. The typical length of stay in the women’s detox program is three to five days, though that can vary depending on the severity of the addiction, individual progress, and long-term goals.

Our women’s detox program accepts adults age 18 and older who have a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder, and we also provide treatment for women who are struggling with certain co-occurring conditions.

The women’s detox program analyzes the needs and goals of each woman before developing a personalized treatment plan. A woman who is grappling with opioid addiction, for example, may receive Vivitrol, Suboxone, or Subutex as part of our medication-assisted treatment. This will allow them to put a halt to opioid use without experiencing the powerful cravings and additional intense symptoms that can accompany withdrawal. Vivitrol and other drugs may also be used for those who are dealing with alcohol addiction.

Regardless of your reasons for entering detox at our facility in Newport Beach, California, you’ll receive therapeutic and emotional support from our team so that you can focus solely on ridding your body of any addictive substances.
