At Home Alcohol Detox

We offer a medically managed at home alcohol detox program that includes the medical supervision of patients who desire to quit the use of alcohol.

Benzodiazepine Detox and Treatment

Typically, medicines prescribed for anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia are considered benzodiazepine. Although these medicines are safe when taken as recommended, they can become addictive if taken incorrectly.

IV NAD Detox

Our Beverly Hills practice has been effectively utilizing IV NAD and IV NAD+ to assist patients with detox from addicting substances and drugs such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, opioids, heroin, cocaine and other addictive substances.

Opioid Detox and Treatment

Recovering from an opioid addiction is not easy. Substance abuse stemming from the use of opoids is extremely draining, physically and emotionally.

Outpatient Alcohol Detox and Treatment

Our Beverly hills addiction doctors provide outpatient alcohol detox and treatment in our office as well as patients home when appropriate and safe.

Suboxone Treatment

Recovering from an opioid dependence is hard to do alone. Without the proper treatment and care, many people that have an addiction will slip back into their old addiction.

Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Outpatient treatment can vary; most will operate in a very similar way. Patients are required to partake in an initial assessment by an addiction specialist doctor. Patients are required to be abstinent from drug and alcohol. They agree to attend seminars, therapy sessions, and activities. Can be one-on-one or in a group environment. Our physicians and clinical staff reserve adequate time per patient to spearhead a treatment plan for drugs and alcohol that will isolate the issue and provide proper treatment. Patient care is crucial for success and we provide the best possible care for our patients who are suffering with drugs and alcohol.

Benefits of outpatient care

  • Does not disrupt a work or school schedule
  • Does not become stigmatized for having inpatient treatment
  • With support from friends and family, coming home is an advantage
  • Does not have to transition back to home routines
  • Less expensive than inpatient treatment

Disadvantages of outpatient care

  • Improper supervision can cause relapse due to temptations
  • Distractions from family and work can cause frustration and relapse
  • May not be able to contact a professional after office hours or on weekends
  • Not as much help for withdrawal symptoms as an inpatient facility

Detox from Alcohol

Treatment protocols need a complete medical assessment. A qualified clinical staff member completes this assessment. Which results in the creation of a customized patient plan.
 
Some symptoms of alcohol withdrawal are the same as other illnesses. A urine sample is often taken to verify levels of alcohol in the system. The more benign symptoms can subside on their own. Symptoms subside in a matter of days if there’s no extra alcohol intake. More severe withdrawal symptoms should be immediately treated by a qualified physician. These symptoms include:
  • tachycardia
  • fevers
  • hypertension
  • auditory or visual hallucinations
  • delirium
  • severe depression
  • suicidal or homicidal intention
  • psychosis
 
Specific medications are often found helpful to relieve alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Medications such as:
  • Acamprosate,
  • Disulfiram,
  • Naltrexone,
  • Benzodiazepines, including diazepam and chlordiazepoxide,
  • Anticonvulsants such as Depakote or Tegretol
  • Antidepressants and anti-nausea medications
An addiction specialist member will go over results upon your arrival at our clinic.

Detox from Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines are some of the most widely prescribed medications in the US. They are Xanax (alprazolam), Valium (diazepam, Ativan (lorazepam), and Klonopin (clonazepam). The initial intent of these meds was for short term use. Not the current handling prolonged addictions to other substances or personal problems. Withdrawal can be more severe than alcohol withdrawal in some cases. Which is why there should always be physician monitoring.
 
Our physicians don’t advise patients to stop taking benzodiazepines ‘cold turkey’. Patients that immediately stop will have uncomfortable side effects. Generally, a decreased dose tapering down to no dose is the best choice. Often beta-blockers and antidepressant meds are useful in this transition to no dose.
 
Detox from benzodiazepines has emotional and psychological aspects as well. More care needs to be taken in monitoring whole-body functions. Rather than the current care plans of dealing only with medication addiction. Our physicians are happy to go over possible treatment plans. Along with complications with any medications considered within a treatment plan.

Detox from Opioids (Suboxone license)

Opioid addiction is common in the United States due to the large numbers of persons who use and abuse these drugs for the treatment of chronic pain issues. Though drugs such as benzodiazepines, methadone, and other drugs are used, withdrawal can be severe and relapses are common. Long term abuse of opioids causes other medical issues. They can affect the body, emotional, and mental status of a patient to render them unable to cope with daily activities.

Methadone, Subutex, Suboxone and Zubsolv are often combined with other antidepressants and antiadrenergic agent to aid in relief from opioid withdrawal.

Treating opioids stems from finding and managing the initial reason for the abuse. For example, if chronic pain was the problem, the patient should seek other modes of treatment. These can include electrical shock systems, tens units, non-opioid medications, exercise, diet and physical therapy.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Specialist

We have treated many patients using standard and alternative therapies to acheive the desired success. Our addiction specialist will utilize all appropriate treatment options and treat all underlying conditions in order to obtain optimal results.

Alternatives to the medications listed above and other forms of withdrawal symptom management is available such as:

IV Therapy

Neurotransmitter restoration therapy is one avenue to treat withdrawal symptoms with the use of IV NAD & amino acids. NAD infusion therapy is a holistic approach to the treatment of dependency on alcohol, chemicals, medications, and other substances. It helps clear the mind and relieve withdrawal so the patient can explore other options with a greater chance of success long term.

Supplements

Rather than relying specifically on drugs to treat addictions, using supplements can aid the transition in a more natural manner. Supplements such as B-Complex for stress relief, Calcium and Magnesium to help relieve anxiety in the central nervous system and help with muscle aches. Kava helps to improve mood. Passion flower can help with mental symptoms. Melatonin can help provide more restful sleep. A balanced diet can help restore the body’s natural functions after the medication or alcohol abuse.
