Drug detox is the first step before you enter any rehab program. Zak’s House is the premier drug detox in Fallbrook. Drug detox is not only a difficult and painful process, but it can also be very dangerous when it comes to detoxing some drugs, and can even result in death. You need to have a supervised medical detox if you are detoxing off drugs or alcohol. There are medications you can be given to ease your withdrawal symptoms and cravings and make you as comfortable as possible during a difficult time. You will also be monitored and have staff available in case there is a medical emergency.

What is drug detox and what are my options?

Drug detox is the process of removing the substance you have been abusing from your body completely, and your body adjusts to no longer receiving regular doses.


When you abuse drugs your body gets used to them and adapts. You must go through another adaptation when you stop using as well and it has side effects called withdrawals that are not pleasant.


There are medications available to help ease the pain of withdrawals and help with cravings.


Can I detox at home?

You can detox at home but you cannot go to rehab without completing detox. Detoxing is dangerous and painful. Detoxing off some drugs can even cause death or permanent damage to your body or brain. To safely detox you need medical supervision and the process will be much easier in a facility with access to medication to ease symptoms and cravings. You will be monitored in case of any medical emergency with staff available to treat you if need be.

It is also much easier to relapse if you are detoxing at home and have to go through the same painful process again. A detox facility is meant to make the process as safe and comfortable as possible. Cravings are most severe during detox, they will often cause a full relapse if not in a professional setting.

How long does drug detox take?

The amount of time that drug detox takes can vary from person to person. It depends on a wide variety of factors, including:
  • How much you have been using
  • How long you have been using
  • Your personal genetic makeup
  • Whether you have any underlying health conditions or co-existing problems
  • Your age
  • Your gender
  • Your family history
Most drug detox programs are available in 3, 5, and 7-day durations, though there are some that last longer.
