The Detox Process At The Haven

Please watch this quick video about the detox process at The Haven at Pismo. 

As you rid your body of addiction-related substances, you may experience side effects that require holistic or pharmaceutical intervention. This is an extremely vulnerable process that we understand fully, which is why our team is here to safeguard your health, manage withdrawal symptoms, and provide compassionate care. Our staff is a huge part of what sets our care apart from others, and we hope to make that an undeniable part of your journey if you receive care with us.

Dangers of Detoxing Alone

Although it is still an extremely brave step to recover on your own, it can be a lot more difficult and potentially dangerous. The LHSFNA took a deep dive into HBO actor, Nelson Ellis, who passed away after attempting to detox from alcohol alone. One of their findings touched on the concern that withdrawal symptoms often vary from person to person. Without a medical professional prepared to step in, depending on the substance that you are withdrawing from, you may face a life-threatening situation.

Did you know? The first five days of this detoxifying process are the most dangerous, which is why programs like ours exist to avoid these heart-breaking outcomes when facing detox alone.


Benefits of Comfortable Detox at The Pines

When you need detox, we recognize that it’s hard to focus on much else. As your body rids itself of substances, you will face the symptoms of withdrawal. We do our best to make all other aspects of your stay as comfortable as possible, so your physical and mental self can be restored to health.
Located on California’s beautiful Central Coast, The Pines is a refuge where guests begin their journey to sobriety and renewal. Many of our residents start their stay at this residential detox home, where credentialed therapists and medical practitioners administer supervised treatment in a comfortable, home-like environment. 

Our detox programs are designed for clients struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health conditions, such as bipolar disorder, anxiety, and depression. So although we have a specific goal in mind with the detox programs, other concerns will get the attention they need as well, making it a comprehensive but peaceful setting for healing. When you choose to come to the Haven at Pismo, your medical detox includes:
  • Medical services
  • Physician & nurse supervision
  • Counseling & grief support
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Family counseling & support
  • Private accommodations
  • World-class amenities

Preparing You for Active Recovery

The road ahead of you will no doubt be difficult, but our medically supervised detox provides the support, resources, and camaraderie you need to pursue a motivated, fruitful recovery. We strive to follow your success through detox and beyond, which is why we will give you the tools to move forward with confidence. The goal of The Pines detox residence is to stabilize your physical health, cleanse your body of toxins, and lay the groundwork for long-term sobriety success.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, relapse rates while in recovery are 40 to 60 percent. This is a statistic we are actively trying to break. Our team works hard to help remove blocks in your way that are going to keep you in a cycle of chemical dependency. Some of the ways our team goes above and beyond to do that is by:
  • Demystifying the detox process
  • Helping you recognize & confront your fears
  • Managing withdrawal symptoms
  • Providing coping strategies
  • Supporting you emotionally
