Journey Malibu’s DETOX Drug Addiction Treatment Program

The detoxification process in drug rehab is sometimes necessary right away to address an individual’s physical addiction to drugs. It’s possible that during detox you may experience withdrawal symptoms. Generally, these symptoms will not be life threatening, but they can be accompanied by relapse if the detox is not supervised by a trained professional. Of course, your detox at JOURNEY MALIBU will be supervised by a licensed medical doctor who is equipped to monitor this delicate phase of your treatment.
