Detoxification of people displaying mild withdrawal symptoms from alcohol or drugs like cocaine, marijuana, opioids, or methamphetamine, is a process that does not generally need to be done in a hospital setting. However, these clients may need a referral for an outside medical assessment, medical evaluation and medications to assist with the discomfort of withdrawal and the associated symptoms. It is essential that a person seeking to 'detox' from alcohol and/or drugs be evaluated by an independent or personal physician trained in Addiction Medicine.
Dr. Stone has treated over 60,000 addicts since he began this work in 1969. He understands addiction and how to treat it! In addition to his ongoing clinical direction at Cornerstone, Dr. Stone continues his addiction medicine and pain management practice in Santa Ana, California, where he and his local network of colleagues are available to help you. Our special team of independent doctors can assist with the many issues that are unique to each individual. If you require a referral, you can trust the team of addiction specialists that we know and trust. In the Staff and Independent Physicians section of this web site you can read about Dr. Stone and some of the local independent specialists that we work with.
Medications that may be used to assist you in managing a pain-free withdrawal may be prescribed by an independent physician or your own personal doctor. These medications may include new drugs like Suboxone (buprenorphine) which is now used for helping prescription opiate and heroin addicts detox. If you have suffered through a painful detox in the past and for whatever reason are in need of detox again, please come see us, we can help make the process less painful. We have 31 years of experience with addiction and detox. We also have extensive experience with pain management. We understand you have REAL pain and need help. We can offer the help you need!
After the detoxification process is complete, you will discuss your options with the Clinical Team. This would include recommendations for continued rehabilitation in our residential or outpatient programs or our extended care.
