Medical Detox

lrc_deck “Advancements in addiction detoxification have completely changed the scope of residential treatment; it offers a whole new pathway toward improved long-term success and ultimately, a greater sense of hope in the mind of the addict”

Stuart Birnbaum Co-founder of Meditox Services and Executive Director at The Lake House Recovery Center


For many years, drug addicts and alcoholics who were deep in their habit were often faced with the prospect of immense discomfort and potentially life-threatening repercussions during their initial withdrawal.  Entering a drug rehab center or any other type of treatment facility was simply not option for those of a more light-minded disposition. The detox program offered by The Lakehouse Recovery Center is located at our Westlake Village, California location and integrates a variety of components, each of which is intended to complement the other.  While many drug rehab centers offer detoxification services for drug & alcohol addiction, it is our belief that this process can be effectively provided in a manner the best promotes long-term recovery. In many cases, a client will enter this program with the intent of remaining here throughout their entire recovery process.  This enables them to seamlessly transition from each phase of treatment, thus having a higher likelihood for maintaining not just a substance-free lifestyle, but in a manner that promotes a higher “quality of living” – a way of life that has probably eluded them for quite some time!

This relatively short process is essential for a few reasons. First and most importantly, it provides a safe and closely monitored process in which the addict or alcoholic can emerge from the physical dependence resulting from extended periods of use; this of course varies depending on the length and quantity of use. Second, it provides a transition period which eases the client into the actual residential treatment process with the benefit of having greater clarity. The need for medical detox varies greatly from client to client, and certain substances can actually pose a physical threat to the individual’s well-being if not weened off correctly. For this reason it is important to engage the initial detoxification program with physicians that have expanded knowledge and specific expanded credentials with respect to chemical dependency detox. As being among Southern California’s most highly regarded treatment facilities, The Lakehouse Recovery Center utilizes an array of detoxification services and clinicians that all meet our rigorous guidelines. We believe in the importance of not only medication assisted detox, but also in integrating various holistic, dietary, emotional and physical elements that will ultimately bolster the overall rehabilitation experience. We do things very methodically and maintain a fluid approach that enables us to meet or exceed each client’s individual addiction recovery needs. The Lakehouse Recovery Center is also a strong proponent of Suboxone therapy and maintenance while under the care/guidance of a qualified physician. We have seen firsthand the many wonderful benefits offered by the proper use of Suboxone and believe in its beneficial components with regard to heroin and opiate detoxification services.
