Recovery is a process that doesn’t happen overnight.

For many, it’s a long road that twists, turns and sometimes leads you back to where you began. With the right support and guidance, however, individuals struggling with substance use can achieve long-term sobriety and rediscover life without drugs or alcohol. Journey Hillside Tarzana is an exclusive treatment center located in the beautiful, quiet hills of Los Angeles, California dedicated to supporting individuals as they heal from addiction.

To help our clients build a solid foundation for recovery, we provide comprehensive, medically-supervised detox services to promote a safe and comfortable experience as drugs and alcohol are eliminated from the body. This important first step ensures recovery begins on the right foot and patients are ready to dig deeper into their addiction once they transition into our residential care program.

A Fresh Start at Journey Hillside Tarzana

The recovery journey typically begins with a detox program

Detox is one of the early challenges faced by patients due to a process called withdrawal. Withdrawal causes a variety of unpleasant symptoms when drugs are no longer used that can make patients feel anxious, depressed and restless. This is because prolonged use of drugs or alcohol can cause chemical imbalances that change the way the brain works, affecting concentration, emotional regulation, sleep patterns and more. Over time, your brain begins to rely on drugs or alcohol, which leads to uncomfortable symptoms as your body readjusts to functioning without them.

Journey Hillside Tarzana is equipped with an experienced, compassionate medical staff available around the clock and highly skilled in managing withdrawal symptoms. When traces of drugs or alcohol remain in the body, it’s more difficult to resist cravings and leave old patterns of behavior behind. A comprehensive detox allows patients to start their treatment experience with a clean slate and a clear mind. The tools we use to help patients have a safe, positive experience include:

Individualized, Professional Care

Our six-bed facility provides clients with unparalleled personalized care and one-on-one attention. Detox is challenging without the support of licensed professionals, so we are equipped with a medical staff available 24/7 to provide comprehensive care and manage your individual symptoms with dignity and respect. When a client first arrives at Journey Hillside Tarzana, they will be thoroughly assessed by our detoxification services team to determine what level of care they’ll need and to coordinate a personalized treatment plan to ensure optimal comfort and safety.
We understand that no two people are affected by withdrawal in the same way and provide treatment plans tailored for each individual and the symptoms they are experiencing. The length and severity of a client’s withdrawal depend on a variety of factors, but detox usually takes between five to 10 days to complete. Our program allows for some flexibility as the presence of multiple substances, route of administration and frequency of use will affect how long it takes to free a patient’s body from the hold of illicit substances.

A comfortable patient experience

Throughout the process, patients suffering from alcohol, benzodiazepine and opiate withdrawal are monitored closely and provided with medications and other treatments that can help make the experience more comfortable. Although different drugs produce distinct withdrawal symptoms, there are some common effects which may include:

Common effects of withdrawal symptoms

  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness

Journey Hillside Tarzana Detox Program

While these symptoms are uncomfortable, for many clients, they can also be dangerous. Certain drugs may cause seizures, hallucinations and delusions, which can be frightening and in some cases, fatal. Withdrawal can also prompt some individuals to seek out drugs and alcohol as a way to ease or avoid symptoms. When a patient relapses, their chances of overdosing are higher due to decreased tolerance. This is why we believe that a professional, medically-supervised detox program is a critical step that keeps patients safe as they prepare for the remainder of their recovery journey.
