What is Medical Detox?
Medical detox is also known as medically-assisted detox. It uses medication to help reduce the symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal. When you stop drinking alcohol the body goes through the withdrawal process. It can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, shaking and other unpleasant symptoms. The severity of your symptoms depends on the amount of alcohol that you regularly consume and how long you have been abusing alcohol.
It can be difficult and even dangerous to go through withdrawal on your own. We offer complete evaluation and support throughout the entire withdrawal process to ensure your safety and comfort. We try to make detox as easy as possible. Sometimes that includes the use of medications to help ease your symptoms.

What is dual diagnosis?
When someone has substance abuse issues along with a mental health problem, they are said to have a 'dual diagnosis.' Either factor, the mental illness or the substance abuse issue, can come first. In many cases, a person with mental health issues turns to illicit drugs or over-drinking in an effort to self-medicate and feel better. Understandable, but not a good idea. In fact, mental illness is likely to be worsened by drugs and alcohol. Dual diagnosis is more common than you might think. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, at least eight million people in America experience one or more mental health problems along with drug or alcohol dependence. The majority of dual diagnosis patients are male, says NAMI. To the compassionate staff at Orange County Detox Center, it doesn't matter which gender you happen to be. We are here to extend a helping hand along with dual diagnosis treatment in Huntington Beach for anyone who comes to us for help.
What does dual diagnosis look like?
Due to the fact that numerous mental illnesses may combine with drug abuse, symptoms may vary quite a bit. Typical signs and symptoms of substance misuse include withdrawal from family and friends, and sudden behavioral changes. Persons who misuse drugs or alcohol may evince risky behavior and continued use despite deleterious effects. Someone who is dependent on drugs or drink may develop a high tolerance and require more drugs or drinks than they used to just to feel the same effects. When someone is deeply addicted, they may need to use or drink just to feel 'normal.' Mental health issues may be evident in the form of sudden and extreme changes in mood, avoidance of friends and family, and even thoughts of self harm or suicide. Fortunately, dual diagnosis treatment in Huntington Beach is readily available and only a phone call away.
How is dual diagnosis treated?
The first step toward recovery for someone with dual diagnosis is to seek help at a licensed facility that offers dual diagnosis treatment in Huntington Beach or wherever they are. Be aware, however, that not all rehab centers offer treatment for coexisting conditions. It was not so long ago that some mental health professionals refused treatment until the potential patient gave up drinking or stopped using street drugs. Fortunately, mental health treatment may now be combined with detox and rehab. Inpatient therapy is often recommended, so the rehab guest may be monitored throughout the withdrawal process and prepare themselves for the counseling, psychotherapy, and support that is best obtained at a dual diagnosis facility. Self-help groups, peer support groups also assist persons who are willing to recover from the trouble of substance abuse that presents with mental health issues.
If you think that you or someone that you love needs a helping hand with substance abuse combined with mental health issues, please give us a confidential call at (855) 790-7418 so we can talk privately about dual diagnosis treatment in Huntington Beach.
