Detox Program Stages
First Stage of Detox
Since drug detox is experienced differently by each individual, you may react to the drug withdrawal symptoms and medications for addiction in surprising ways. We always put your safety and comfort first, making sure that you are kept comfortable during the entire process. During this cleansing stage of alcohol detoxification in Costa Mesa, your body will begin to expel toxins from your body on its own. This begins with your blood filtering through your kidneys which then excrete the toxins through your elimination system. The liver and lungs go through a similar process. While this first stage of detox is taking place, foods rich in fiber such as fruits, grains, and vegetables are eaten to help clear your digestive tract and deliver much-needed minerals and vitamins.
Second Stage of Detox
The second stage of drug and alcohol detox is restoration and rebuilding the nutrition you lost while addicted to drugs. Finding balance following drug addiction and detox is so important for your future and recovery success. You will be served a wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and grains that will work to rebuild the deficits you will likely have. Healthy lean proteins are some of the best foods for quickly replenishing nutrients to muscle tissue. During this second phase of detox, you will also learn to cook delicious, nutrient-rich recipes designed to further boost cellular regrowth. Our staff will be available to help you with any special requests you may have.
Third Stage of Detox
This final step of drug and alcohol detoxification is where your future drug-free life will begin to take shape. The healthy dietary changes made during stage two will continue as new life skills are introduced. For lasting sobriety to be yours, a commitment to charting meal times, limiting unhealthy social situations and preventing future exposure to substances that prove too tempting. This new healthy life will also include therapy, 12-step program involvement, and other outlets for regaining physical and psychological health.
