Opioid Detox San Francisco

Opioid Detox San Francisco

Heartwood House Detox is the best choice for opioid detox in San Francisco. Here, we provide a highly personalized medically supervised detox program just for people with opioid addictions. Choosing the right detox program is the key to establishing a strong foundation for your recovery. Let us explain why Heartwood House Detox is the best place for opioid detox in San Francisco.

Heartwood House Detox Provides Medically Supervised Detox

Why is medically supervised detox important? People who become addicted to drugs like heroin and prescription pain medicine have to contend with physical addictions as well as psychological addictions. Not all drugs are physically addictive. For example, marijuana and cocaine are two commonly abused drugs that are only psychologically addictive, not physically addictive. When you think about how difficult it is for many people to quit using and abusing marijuana and cocaine, imagine a drug that is equally psychologically addictive but also physically addictive!

Physical addiction is different than psychological addiction. Although a person might feel like they need weed or cocaine when they don't have it, they are not going to get sick or even die if they go without it. A person who is physically addicted to opioids will get sick and face potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms when they go without their drugs. Withdrawal symptoms can range from moderate to severe, including symptoms like vomiting, shaking, diahrrea, convulsions, and worse. The body could even go into a state of shock. This is why medically supervised detox is necessary for opiod abusers seeking to quit.

We Provide an Outside-the-Box Detox Experience

At Heartwood House Detox, we take a holistic approach to addiction treatment, especially during the detoxification period. Our approach to detox care can be summarized like this:

Medication Assistance

In cases of chronic opioid addictions, medication or evidence-based therapy can work miracles! Of course, medication assistance isn't for everyone, and the this kind of therapy should only be prescribed and administered by the best doctors.

24-Hour Monitoring

Don't worry, 24-hour monitoring doesn't mean that you won't have privacy. We are not going to be watching you while you are in the bathroom or getting dressed. 24-hour monitoring by our licensed medical support staff simply means that you'll be checked up on regularly to ensure that you are safe and comfortable during withdrawal.

Private Rooms with TVS & Internet Access

Staying connected to your friends and family is important during detox, especially to those who are encouraging and support you in your journey. That is why all of our detox patients have their own rooms with TVs and Internet access.

One-on-One Counseling 

Detox is the first step in the journey of recovery. Some people are ready to get started and jump right into their recovery program while others might just need some space. This is why Heartwood House Detox offers options one-on-one counseling with a psychiatrist, yoga, massage, swimming, 12-step meetings, and more.
