Sub-Acute Detox Services in the Inland Empire

If you’re struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, your self-esteem, physical health and overall well-being suffer. Given the option, no one would choose to make their life harder with alcohol or drug addiction, yet so many sufferers feel extreme guilt and shame. A key element of healing is learning to let go of these negative feelings about yourself and rediscovering your self-worth.

However, while you’re under the influence of drug or alcohol addiction, your mental state is at the mercy of whatever substances you abuse. For many people, the best way to prepare for treatment at a rehab center is by going through medical detox. It clears the body and mind of harmful toxins and prepares you for addiction recovery.

Holistic Drug Detox in the Inland Empire, California

Detoxing your mind and body from alcohol or drugs is the first step toward lasting recovery from addiction. But too many individuals refuse to attend a drug rehab center because of the fear of withdrawal. At Ranch Creek Recovery, we strive to expunge that fear with our holistic sub-acute detox services in Murrieta, CA. We’re located just over an hour away from Los Angeles, CA.

Our residential program is located in the same facility in Murrieta, while outpatient treatment is provided in Temecula, CA. Both facilities are under an hour away from San Diego, and our tranquil, luxurious settings are the perfect places to rediscover peace and joy.

What Is Sub-Acute Detox?

Sub-acute detox is a medically monitored inpatient detoxification process that can take place in a stand-alone detox center or a holistic, comprehensive addiction treatment center like Ranch Creek Recovery.

This level of detox is appropriate for someone who may be struggling with a less severe substance use disorder or who’s already completed a more intense detox program and needs to transition into additional treatment.

During sub-acute detox, you’re monitored by medical professionals to ensure your health and safety. At our drug rehab center, we can prescribe medication-assisted treatment to help relieve withdrawal symptoms and get you through detox successfully.

Staff: 4.5/5Owner, Director, therapists, nurses, counselors, and support staff are all really great. I had no issues with anyone in particular. They are all there to help you however they can. I found that everyone advocated for my well being, were available when I needed them, and did their best to support me, check in on me, and make sure I was happy and comfortable.(why not 5/5? They have had a bunch of turnover and need to update their website with their newer staff members and qualifications. Additionally the Doctors they partner with were not as thorough as I would have wanted, and were kind of pushy with medications)Program: 4/5Small groups for the win! You get a lot of attention if you need it. This is a Holistic approach rehab. They do not focus on any 12 step programs. You have daily classes with different counselors, focusing on the science behind addiction, anger management, talk therapy, art therapy, equine therapy, nutrition, and much more. You have one-on-one sessions twice a week with a Licensed Therapist, and you have access to a gym daily, with a yoga instructor and trainer coming a few times a week. You also have a docent that comes once a week to do sound therapy, and you can learn techniques such as tapping. They have 2 doctors on staff you will have Zoom appointments with, and someone is always present to distribute morning, afternoon, and bedtime medication. You can also always grab whomever is on-call to talk through any issues or questions you have.(why not 5/5? Overall I found that there was too much down-time. I got bored and restless with that much free time and I craved more structure. Additionally I thought that the family Zoom sessions could have served as a stronger resource for loved ones)Location: 4/5Murrieta is a quiet, tranquil area, with mountain views, a lot of farmland, and very little public noise to distract you. When you do leave the house, you get to visit a small farm that is very close by to interact with horses and goats, etc. You also have an outing on Saturdays for a few hours that allows you as a group to get out of the house. The immediate area has all the basic stores and activities you would want, like target/walmart/grocery/7-11/etc as well as mini golf, bowling... You do need to decide as a group where you want to go because you have 1 chaperone and need to stay together at all times.(why not 5/5? There are 2 different houses located about 10 minutes away from each other. The Bass house advertised on the website is much nicer and larger than the Doreen house. During my time the clients staying at the Doreen house were shuttled over to the Bass house for our daily classes and sessions, not being able to utilize their own kitchen, rooms, and bathrooms during the day. I was also told by clients that the Doreen house was not as nice as the Bass House)Amenities: 4/5Pool - (I was there in the winter, so it was not heated and basically unusable, however, I did do some cold plunges just for the shock)Hot tub - available once a week on Friday eveningsYard - Large Grass Backyard and cement patio with tables and chairsGym - Available daily. TV for movies or music. Free weights, yoga mats, and a few outdated cardio machines that mostly worked.Kitchen - Large kitchen, multiple Fridges/Freezers, Huge pantry for preparing anything you want, ovens, microwave, toasters, dishwasher, outdoor gas grill, etc...Pool table, ping pong table, arts and crafts table, outdoor TV, Indoor TV, Computer, land-line house phone.Comfortable rooms and bathrooms with laundry access, and provided bedding and towels.(why not 5/5? I was disappointed that it wasn't clear that the pool and hot tub didn't have daily access as advertised, and that the gym was more outdated than described/pictured. They also could make some very inexpensive recreation investments like a basketball for their outdoor hoop, soccer ball, frisbees, croquet set, bocce, etc for their giant lawn to be used during the extensive downtime)

Ranch Creek Recovery is the best way to start your new healthy way of life. This program actually saved my life and my sanity. Their Holistic approach was amazing and I learned so much from my counselors and Dr. Dena. With only a limited number of participants in the house at one time, you are guaranteed the one on one time, as well as the group counseling they offer in a safe and comfortable setting. They make you aware that they truly care and are there to support you , listen to you, and most important to teach you. Teach you information about triggers, cognitive behavior and how to stay sober. They include therapy through others means such as Yoga, Meditation, working with Horses and even Physical Training. Ranch Creek makes sure when you leave you are good, Mind, Body and Soul. They have an excellent Intensive Outpatient Program (10) weeks that helps navigate your way back into life. A year ago (received my one year chip June 8, 2022) I was lost and a raging out of control alcoholic. I can proudly say today that I am not. I will always be an alcoholic with an addictive personality. But now I have tools, personal contacts and the faith in myself that I have never had before in my 9 years searching for sobriety. I often reflect back on my time at the Bass house. I am probably one of the few that actually stayed 60 days because I had so much to learn. My insurance did not cover all of the last days, but it was worth it to me, so I stayed. I am so grateful to so many of the staff, Jimmie, Christine, Jonathon, Dr. Dena and countless extended staff to name a few, because there were more. I would not be here to tell you it works, because without the treatment and the help I received, I alive today to tell my journey. If you are ready to face the truth, please give them a call. I promise if you are committed, you will never be the same as when you walked in. Thank you Ranch Creek Recovery.

I had long term sobriety and was under a lot of stress from my professional position. I began to use cannabis recreationally and soon became dependent. I sought recovery, because I could not stop using cannabis on my own. It was causing issues with my family and in my professional life. I signed up with Rancho Creek Recovery, through my insurance. I attended the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. Her group sessions and the materials she provided, helped me to get off of cannabis. Lorri was a big help in giving me strategies to stay sober and to manage the cravings and ways to deal with my work stress. I would strongly recommend Rancho Creek Recovery's outpatient program and the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. She was a great professional to work with.

I've had a few stints with rehab and none even skinned the surface of what I learned here. Located on a beautiful property in the foothills of Murrieta, with in house groups led by instructors that break it down so in depth. My perspective had a total shift and I can honestly say I owe my life and the promise of a new future to this facility and it's faculty. If you're willing to do the work this is the place to get into your core issues and help you recover from the lifestyle and vices that one is addicted to. I recommend this place to anyone who wants something different from life. DBT, CBT, recovery education, family therapy are just a few of the groups and The program director and Clinical director hand picked a team that is progressive, informed, patient, caring and passionate about what they do. I encourage anyone who's seeking treatment to look into this program I first hand watched others and had my life transformed.

Coming to Ranch Creek Recovery, I had been through three different inpatient chemical treatment facilities in CA. I was feeling lost and somewhat hopeless. The serene setting gave me peace and I began healing. The counselors were very inspiring and helped me grow in ways I haven’t experienced in years. I began to see the bigger picture that a life in sobriety can give you. Although I am somewhat scared to leave the comfort and security that Ranch Creek Recovery and staff has brought me, I am also excited to share my growth with my family and to start my new life. Thank you RCR!

How Long Does Drug Detox Take?

When you use drugs and alcohol excessively, your body and mind adapt to the changes caused by these chemicals. This explains why it seems to take more and more of a drug to keep getting the desired effect, but it also explains why the drug detox process can be so challenging. As you move through the detox portion of addiction treatment, your body readjusts to not having these mind-altering chemicals.

Without medical detox, the shock this causes can feel uncomfortable for your body, mind and spirit. In general, the length of detox is determined by how long a substance remains active in your system and usually lasts between three days and two weeks. However, there are a number of factors that impact how long you might be in a detox facility.

Drug detox in California

Detox Duration by Substance Abuse

Let’s look at the duration of a drug detox depending on substance use:

  • Alcohol: Medical detox from alcohol usually lasts for between one and two weeks, although you might need medication for longer to ease withdrawals. Despite how common alcohol misuse is, alcohol is one of the most difficult substances to detox from. It changes your brain in multiple ways, and the body adapts quickly to its presence.
  • Benzodiazepines: Benzodiazepines have a similar effect on the body, which adapts to their presence and goes into shock if you suddenly stop taking them. Medical detox usually lasts for at least two weeks, although you might need medication support for longer to maintain a healthy body and mind.
  • Cocaine: Cocaine leaves the body very quickly, so medical detox isn’t usually required for more than a week. However, the psychological impact of heavy cocaine use is extreme, forcing your body and mind to adapt to radical levels of dopamine, which can be severely depleted by substance abuse.
  • Methamphetamine: Crystal meth causes extreme increases in dopamine and alters brain chemistry in a short time with heavy use. Medical detox usually lasts for a week, but recovery from this powerful drug often lasts months.
  • Opioids: Heroin and other opioids cause potent releases of endorphins in the body that make them some of the most addictive substances in the world. Medication-assisted detox usually lasts for between one and two weeks, although treatment at rehab centers should be significantly longer.

What to Expect From Sub-Acute Detox at Ranch Creek Recovery

Our goal, first and foremost, is to keep you as safe, comfortable and supported as possible. When you no longer fear alcohol and drug withdrawal, you can effectively detox and progress into your next level of addiction treatment.

When you arrive at Ranch Creek Recovery, our first step is to determine if sub-acute detoxification is the right treatment for your lasting recovery. During our initial assessment, we’ll examine the severity of your addiction and figure out if there are other health conditions we should be aware of before we begin treatment.

If sub-acute detox is deemed necessary, you’ll move into our treatment facility in Murrieta, CA, an hour away from Los Angeles and begin the detoxification process. Our expert and compassionate staff will be available at all times to support you as we flush the alcohol and drugs out of your body.

During this time, the Ranch Creek detox staff will have medications ready if you need them to ease any pain or discomfort you feel from withdrawal. Our team will monitor your condition regularly to ensure you’re detoxing safely and no complications arise.

As you progress through detox, you’ll be able to participate in therapy sessions or individual and family counseling to work through cravings and the negative thoughts and feelings you experience.

Why Choose Ranch Creek Recovery for Addiction Detox in Murrieta?

The drug detox program you choose will lay the groundwork for the remainder of your addiction treatment. If detox isn’t successful, it could prevent you from reaching lasting recovery. At Ranch Creek Recovery, our sub-acute detox program is the right choice because:

We Follow an Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment

Sub-acute detox has been proven to help people detox safely and successfully from substance abuse. Plus, with our ability to prescribe medications when needed, you’ll be able to push through all those uncomfortable moments when you feel like relapsing.

We Have Compassionate Staff Guiding You

Detox is an emotional and vulnerable experience. That’s why we provide a staff that’s both highly trained in medical care and compassionate. Our staff won’t judge or shame you but will instead provide caring support and guidance.

We Offer Highly Personalized, Trusted Care

Ranch Creek Recovery treats no more than six clients at a time. This allows our staff to provide the individualized, one-on-one care you need during this crucial time in your addiction rehab journey. This laser-focused attention will help you detox safely. We’re recognized by both the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and Incidental Medical Services (IMS) to offer detox services in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Murrieta and beyond.

Our Drug Rehab Center Is a Balance of Comfort and Home

Our treatment facility offers the peace, tranquility and privacy you need to detox comfortably and prioritize your recovery. Besides the high-quality amenities you can enjoy, our facility is designed to be warm and welcoming so you can feel safe and at home during this time.

Which Drugs Are Hardest to Detox From?

Drug detox is never easy, but the difference between attempting to do it alone and attending a medical detox center is night and day. Medication can practically eliminate the most uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and help you self-regulate. Plus, being under the care and attention of qualified staff 24 hours a day assures your safety as you go through the recovery process.

It’s also important to factor in that different individuals can experience withdrawal very differently. Factors such as pain tolerance, preexisting health conditions and emotional sensitivity mean a substance that’s traditionally associated with mild withdrawal could cause extreme distress.

That’s why we’d recommend that anyone who’s worried about their relationship to drugs or alcohol seeks advice about sub-acute detox in Los Angeles, Murrieta, Palm Springs and beyond.

However, generally speaking, the following substances are deemed the hardest to withdraw from:

  • Opioids
  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Methamphetamine
  • Crack cocaine

What Happens After Sub-Acute Detox Addiction Treatment?

Detox is only the beginning of your recovery journey. The next step would be inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab. Addiction recovery treatment involves clearing the body and mind of external chemicals (detox) and then addressing the issues that drive you to use substances in the first place. Without the latter, the chances of relapse are very high — some might say inevitable.

Your Individualized Treatment Plan

At Ranch Creek Recovery, it all begins with our team of experts getting to know you: your motivations, triggers, history and goals. There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to recovery, some may require inpatient rehab while others can settle to outpatient rehab, so we tailor our approach as much as possible. We work with you to create an individual treatment plan and continually assess and update it to make sure you’re getting the best possible care based on your unique needs.

What Do Drug Rehab Programs Involve?

Once you complete our holistic sub-acute detox program, you’ll transition into our residential treatment center. This is where you’ll participate in a rigorous schedule of evidence-based and experiential therapies to help heal your mind, body and spirit and teach you the necessary skills to maintain long-term sobriety.

Through our inpatient rehab, you’ll meet with trained psychologists and counselors during individual and group therapy sessions to get to the bottom of your substance abuse. You’ll also have the chance to participate in equine therapy, art therapy, meditation, family counseling and experiential activities designed to help you work through your emotions and become more self-aware.

What’s more, our opulent inpatient rehab environment includes a pool and fitness center and boasts just six beds, so you’re guaranteed the necessary care and attention from the qualified, friendly staff at our treatment center in Southern California.

Does Health Insurance Cover Sub-Acute Detox at Our Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facility?

Thanks to changes in health care laws over the past couple of decades, our drug and alcohol rehab programs accept most forms of private insurance. For Los Angeles, Murrieta, San Francisco and most states, this includes coverage across the full continuum of care, including detox, inpatient rehab, outpatient treatment, mental health coverage and medication in some cases. You can find out if we work with your insurer by filling out an online form or calling us directly.
