Those with severe alcohol addictions will benefit from comprehensive alcohol detox at Malibu Beach Recovery Centers’ detox treatment facility. Detox from alcohol at Malibu Beach Recovery Centers is administered at the Brentwood House, a homelike detox facility located in West Los Angeles serving residents in the surrounding Malibu area.
At Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, we recognize alcohol addiction as a powerful mental illness that alters the chemistry of the brain. The hold that alcohol addiction has on the brain composition is very powerful, making it nearly impossible for victims to quit drinking on their own. Although it may at times seem unattainable, alcohol addiction recovery is possible and help is available for effective, long-lasting sobriety. Acknowledging that there is a problem with drinking is a significant and admirable step in the right direction.
Severe cases of alcoholism may require medically supervised detox to ensure the body is weaned off of the physical dependence on alcohol in the safest way possible. Professional detox will ensure each patient has a stable and secure transition to alcohol rehabilitation and recovery.
Warnings Against Self-Detox From Alcohol
People who try to detox from alcohol through self-imposed methods could be exposing themselves to dangerous physical complications. In fact, consequences could be potentially fatal in very serious cases of alcohol addiction when consumption is stopped abruptly. Because of the strong hold alcohol has on the body and mind, quitting alcohol cold turkey could put the body in a state of shock. Although withdrawal symptoms from alcohol will vary person to person, those with very strong alcohol addictions could experience serious withdrawal symptoms that could result in seizures or delirium tremens (DT) that can be deadly.
To avoid fatal health complications, it’s very important to seek expert guidance from a specialized detox treatment center like Malibu Beach Recovery Centers. Through a simple intake evaluation and physical examination, our addiction specialists will be able to determine if medically supervised detox is necessary on a case-by-case basis. This evaluation could save your life.
Effective, Safe Alcohol Detox
Aside from self-detoxing methods being dangerous, they are largely ineffective as well. The withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting alcohol consumption can be so uncomfortable that it can be very difficult for people to effectively detox from alcohol through self-will alone. Typically people who attempt to quit drinking on their own abandon their self-imposed detox plan altogether due to the physical side effects.
The most effective way to detox from alcohol is through medically supervised detox at a professional treatment facility. Malibu Beach Recovery Centers detox program employs the most knowledgeable and caring staff that provides patients 24/7 supervision to ensure their comfort and safety at all times.
Alleviating Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
In more severe cases of alcohol addictions, the withdrawal symptoms from alcohol can be very unpleasant and difficult to endure. Professional alcohol detox at a supervised facility can and will help. The alcohol detox program at Malibu Beach Recovery Centers is designed to facilitate safe detox administration with patient comfort as top priority. Our alcohol detox treatment aims to mitigate the following symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal:
- High blood pressure

To avoid these withdrawal effects, please seek professional guidance from a qualified detox treatment facility like Malibu Beach Recovery Centers. Your safety, comfort and well being are of highest priority.
Treating All Aspects Of Self
At Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, we understand that alcohol addictions are complex and can be associated with other mental health issues or behavioral health issues that affect all aspects of the self. Alcohol addictions can commonly co-occur alongside other disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, depression, borderline personality disorder, or other substance abuse addictions. Understanding coexisting disorders is so important to a patient’s recovery journey, because it will determine how rehabilitation and detox be administered for the most effective recovery – recovery that will target the root cause of pain and addiction, not just the symptoms in isolation.
The doctors, addiction specialists, and counselors at Malibu Beach recovery Centers have extensive training, knowledge, and experience in diagnosing the following disorders that co-occur alongside alcoholism:
PTSD & Trauma
- Anxiety and Panic Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
The Alcohol Detox Process
From the moment patients enter through the doors of Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, they will be treated with well-deserved respect and reverence. Our compassionate and caring staff will warmly welcome patients from all walks of life to ensure they feel at home during this life-changing journey to recovery.
Admissions. Our staff will make the admissions process as seamless as possible so each patient can swiftly begin his or her alcohol detox journey.
Intake Assessment. Following admissions, patients will undergo a thorough intake assessment with a multidisciplinary team of doctors, clinicians, psychiatrists, and addiction counselors. The purpose of the intake evaluation is to help our team of experts understand each patient’s current physical condition, medical history, detox needs, and overall personal expectations for detox and recovery.
Dual Diagnosis. The intake evaluation will give our doctors valuable insight into all aspects of individual, including other mental disorders or behavioral health conditions that may coexist alongside alcohol addiction. Our doctors are specially trained to identify all co-occurring disorders to make sure that detox and recovery is tailored to the unique needs of every patient.
Detox Programs. Depending on the severity of the alcohol addiction and detox needs, our doctors will recommend a detox program that will best serve a patient in his or her alcohol detox journey. When permitted by doctors, we offer flexible detox program options to accommodate all walks of life so that patients can maintain personal responsibilities during their detox.
Detox Administration. At Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, our alcohol detox is administered in a medically supervised facility that emulates a home-like environment. We want all of our patients to feel accepted and welcomed in an atmosphere that is warm, friendly, and free of judgment.
Detox Treatment. Because every patient’s addiction journey is different, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all detox program. Our alcohol detox program employs a wide variety of treatments from medicinal, clinical, to holistic techniques to tackle physical dependence from all angles.
Addiction Recovery. Once patients successfully complete detox, they will be in a safe physical condition to transfer to alcohol addiction rehabilitation at one of our addiction treatment facilities in Malibu. We offer residential or inpatient programs as well as outpatient programs, depending on the needs of the patient. Our goal throughout the alcohol rehabilitation stage is to give patients the resources and coping mechanisms to be able to maintain sobriety outside the walls of our treatment facility. We want all of our alumni to achieve long-lasting sobriety and life full of happiness and health.
