According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 38.7 million American adults (aged 18 and older) battled a substance use disorder in 2020 and that number is steadily rising. Substance use disorders claim lives: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported over 100,000 people died of drug overdoses during a 12-month period which ended in April 2021. Fortunately, starting with proper treatment, you can take your life back and finally break the chains of addiction.
Types of drug addiction treatment we offer:
Opiates are a group of drugs derived from the opium plant. They include codeine, morphine, Vicodin, oxycontin, oxycodone and heroin. Opiates are used as painkillers and are extremely addictive depending on how long the person has been taking the drug and how much he or she uses.
Opiate withdrawal without proper detoxification is extremely difficult and dangerous. Common symptoms of opiate withdrawal include:
- Anxiety and agitation
- Muscle aches and pains
- Abdominal cramps and diarrhea
- Nausea and vomiting
Benzodiazepine: Benzodiazepines or “Benzos” are a group of drugs classified as sedatives. Normally Benzos are prescribed under the names Xanax, Ativan, Valium, or Klonopin to treat anxiety, muscle spasm and seizures. Benzos may also be used to treat alcohol withdrawal. These drugs act on the central nervous system, producing a very relaxed sensation and lowering of anxiety.
Detoxing from benzodiazepines should only be done with proper clinical supervision. Benzodiazepine withdrawal comprises extreme and often dangerous symptoms, including:
- Anxiety and irritability
- Body tremors, particularly of the hands
- Low energy levels
- Disturbed sleep patterns
- Cognitive difficulty and confusion
Suboxone is often used to treat heroin, methadone and opiate dependencies. Many people are surprised to learn that it is possible to become addicted to this drug. However, buprenorphine, one of the chief components in Suboxone, is thought to be as much as 30 times more potent than morphine. This creates a critical dependency on the drug that requires supervised detox to remove.
Detoxing from Suboxone dependency generally spans 14 days of supervised withdrawal. Post-acute symptoms can include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Flu-like symptoms
- Mood swings
- Respiratory distress or depression
Cocaine addiction is one of the most powerfully addictive drugs. Cocaine offers a powerful and intense “high,” causing serious depression and exhaustion when the effects of the drug wear off.
Cocaine withdrawal includes both psychological and physical symptoms, including:
- Irritability and anxiety
- Fatigue and depression
- Chills and body aches
- Muscular pain
Methamphetamine, or “crystal meth,” is an extremely addictive drug that stimulates the central nervous system. In recent years, meth use has skyrocketed throughout the United States. Meth addicts risk strokes, brain damage and other serious physical complications, making detoxification a crucial component in the recovery process.
Chronic use of methamphetamines may result in serious symptoms during withdrawal, such as:
- Paranoia and anxiety
- Violent mood swings and aggression
- Heart arrhythmia
Methadone is used as a maintenance treatment for those with opiate addictions. Because methadone is synthetically manufactured as a substitute for opiates, the potential to become addicted is invariably high. Those who suffer from methadone addiction often have heart conditions and lung infections that require careful monitoring.
Detoxing from methadone can be difficult. Clients may experience physical symptoms with onset approximately one day after the drug is stopped, including:
- Tearing of the eyes
- Body aches and uncontrollable shaking
- Strong cravings
- Nausea and vomiting
Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is a derivative of morphine. It has been illegal for almost 100 years in the United States due to its extremely addictive nature. Overdoses of heroin are common and cause many deaths. Thus a safe detox is essential for anyone suffering from an addiction to this dangerous drug.
Heroin withdrawal symptoms can begin as soon as six hours after the last dose and may last up to seven days. Symptoms include:
- Aches and pains
- Diarrhea and upset stomach
- Nausea and vomiting
- Restlessness and insomnia

Our alcohol treatment program in Orange County, CA is a welcoming and safe environment for you to break free from alcohol dependency.

The goal of detox at our alcohol treatment facility is to help you through the excruciating and potentially dangerous symptoms of alcohol withdrawal before focusing on any underlying issues.
Once you have been assessed and admitted into our program, you will begin with an intake process and get settled in. Each person is different, and we will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is personally tailored to meet your needs. During the detox process, we will make you as comfortable as possible and will provide counseling services and 24/7 care. Counseling includes both one-on-one therapy as well as group therapy settings.
What is prescription drug addiction? An addiction to prescription drugs including opioids, benzodiazepines, ADHD medications and more, looks nearly identical to addiction to other street drugs. The symptoms of a prescription drug addiction can be summarized as:

A co-occurring substance use disorder and mental health disorder can be challenging to treat, but recovery is possible for many. Our dual-diagnosis treatment program helps those with both addiction and a mental-health disorder.Dual-diagnosis treatment includes a plan for co-occurring mental disorders and substance use disorders. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), about half of all people with an addiction have at least one mental disorder. However, each case differs in terms of which disorder occurred first.
While dual-diagnosis disorders include many conditions, mental-condition symptoms can also cause addictions. For instance, a person might self-medicate for depression by drinking alcohol. They can become dependent on alcohol while their depression goes untreated. Substance-use disorders can cause symptoms of depression and anxiety. Thus, treating both disorders at the same time has proven to be successful. Our dual-diagnosis treatment program recognizes the importance of treating both mental health conditions and addictions at the same time for the best results in recovery. Treatment for dual-diagnosis disorders needs to consider the factors that contribute to the diagnosis. Each treatment could involve both medication and therapies. This method of treatment must be selected separately for each case. In other words, there are no one-size-fits-all treatments for dual-diagnosis disorders. Turning Tides Treatment Center has experienced and professional staff to treat clients with dual-diagnosis disorders. We are here to design custom treatment plans to best suit each client’s needs.
