Malibu Detox Center
Elevation Behavioral Health offers a premier Malibu detox center for those who wish to come off drugs and alcohol. Withdrawal from drugs and alcohol can be unpleasant, difficult, and even dangerous. Here at Elevation, we provide top-tier detoxification services to ensure your safety and comfort through the process of withdrawal.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that drug abuse rates are declining among teens, but overdoses from opioids are at an all-time high. Using addictive drugs for extended periods of time causes dependence, which is characterized by withdrawal symptoms upon removal of the substance from the body.
There are multiple levels of detox care for different needs. Here at Elevation Behavioral Health, we offer a medically-assisted detox. This means that we are not a full inpatient detox facility found at hospitals, but we offer a higher level of care than social model detox facilities.
A medication-assisted detox is a program in which medications may be prescribed by physicians to help ease withdrawal symptoms and keep you safe. Some substances may cause severe discomfort or dangerous symptoms when they are removed from the body, and our team of doctors and clinicians will work with you to minimize discomfort and guarantee your safety.
