Medically Monitored Detox at Banyan Palm Springs

There are many steps in addiction recovery, and the first one is usually medical detox. Detoxification is an important step in treating addiction because it focuses on the physical challenges patients may face as a result of withdrawals. Withdrawal symptoms can be highly uncomfortable and even painful if a person attempts to quit “cold turkey” or without medical assistance. Attempting to perform a medical detox at home is also risky and we strongly advise against it. Our medically monitored detox at Banyan Palm Springs is a great option for individuals both in and outside of California to begin their recovery.


What is Medical Detox Treatment?

Medically assisted detox is a process led by medical personnel in which patients are slowly weaned off of alcohol and drugs. One of the most difficult aspects of addiction treatment is the detox process because of withdrawals. Withdrawal symptoms can vary in severity depending on how long the person has been using and whether they’ve abused multiple substances. Certain substances are also more difficult to detox from than others, but all can cause similar symptoms.


Some common alcohol and drug withdrawal symptoms that can occur during detox include:

  • Excessive sweating
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Muscle cramps
  • Stomach pains
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea and other stomach problems
  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Runny nose
  • Teary eyes
  • Increased appetite
  • Tremors
  • Dehydration
  • Difficulties
    concentrating
  • Problems with memory
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness and irritability
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Depression
  • Hallucinations
  • Delirium
  • Seizures



In more extreme cases, the person may experience hallucinations and even psychosis. Withdrawal-induced psychosis refers to the occurrence of symptoms like irritability, delusions, and auditory and visual hallucinations. Without medical assistance and supervision, these symptoms can be severe and life-threatening. Attempting to quit drugs and alcohol should be done with the help of experts in the addiction recovery field. Our drug rehab in California is dedicated to providing each patient with the level of care they need to achieve a full recovery.


Why Our Medical Detox in California is Different

There are many medical detox facilities in California, but none are like ours. At Banyan Treatment Centers Palm Springs, we provide patients with optimal comfort and effective treatment to ensure they get the most out of their experience at our facility. The safety and health of our patients are our priorities, and we spare no costs or efforts to ensure they have all they need to succeed in their sobriety journey. To make sure our patients receive well-rounded treatment and support throughout their stay with us, we help them transition to substance-specific treatment following detox.

After patients undergo our California medical drug detox, we may transition them to one of our levels of addiction care, such as our residential treatment program. This program is a form of inpatient care that offers in-depth supervision, therapy, and privacy to recovery. This is a suitable program for individuals who are struggling with long-term addiction and require a safe place to recover with no distractions. We like to separate patients from their everyday lives by having them live onsite for the duration of this program. This allows them to build up the tools they’ll need to return to a life where triggers and temptations may be present.


The physical, emotional, and even financial effects of drug abuse can pile up. Medical detox centers like ours incorporate every level of care available to individuals with severe addictions who want to turn their lives around.
