Inpatient & Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Detox Serving San Francisco

The Red Bridge with Chicago in the background

Part of the recovery process is about recognizing relapse triggers and learning how to deal with them in a healthy way. A trigger is something that sets off a memory of past use and keeps them in the mindset that may have first caused their addiction.

Triggers are uniquely personal; different things trigger different people. It is recommended that addicts in early recovery avoid situations, people, places or things that trigger the flashbacks/memories and make them want to use again.

At Diamond House Detox center in San Francisco, we pride ourselves on providing a serene drug and alcohol addiction treatment environment where privacy and peace are the main priorities for our clients. Triggers can be external or internal and prompt subconscious urges to use drugs or alcohol. While external triggers refer to people, places, objects and situations, internal triggers refer to feelings. Common internal triggers include:

  • Negative emotions: shame, depression, guilt, fear, anxiety, loneliness, hate, anger, jealousy, irritation, exhaustion, feelings of inadequacy
  • Positive emotions: passion, happiness, excitement, feeling “normal,” sexual arousal, strength, celebratory feelings, confidence
  • Everyday emotions: Fatigue, relaxation, neglect, frustration, embarrassment, pressure, nervousness, boredom, insecurity

Often, this is exactly why we recommend people with addictions seek detox and treatment outside of the city in which they are from — away from familiar people and distractions that might derail them on their path toward recovery and a better life.

Diamond House Detox has been home to many San Francisco residents seeking a safe, private detox away from the Bay Area. Our luxurious San Francisco rehab accommodations allow personal space for rest, meditation and healing. At about 70 miles (1 hour and 15-minute drive) outside of the city, Diamond House Detox is an excellent choice for loved ones whose lives depend upon recovery.

San Francisco Addiction Stats

In California, nearly 9% of people age 12 and older have some form of substance use disorder, and in San Francisco County, nearly 300 people died due to opioid overdose alone in 2022.

Our trained medical staff work tirelessly to create a calming, supportive atmosphere where people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction can come and recover from their substance use disorder.

Our Bay Area Rehab Center Includes:

Substance use and addiction encompass more than just alcohol and opioids. Practically any regulated substance can lead to an addiction, and at Diamond House Detox, our medical professionals strive to stay up to date with the latest advancements in addiction treatment. This allows us to offer comprehensive treatment programs covering:

  • Alcohol Detox: According to the 2021 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 28.6 million adults ages 18 and older had Alcohol Use Disorder in the United States. To help people looking for alcohol rehab near San Francisco and other Northern California locations, our Sacramento office provides detox treatment, therapy and lifetime support.
  • Opiate Detox: Every day, more than 220 people in the United States die from an opioid overdose. Opiates refer to drugs such as heroin, opium, codeine and morphine. With Diamond House’s San Francisco drug rehabilitation, we give clients a choice in how they’d like to manage their withdrawal symptoms. While some clients’ priority is medical detoxification from opiates, others choose medications that will target and lessen physical and emotional symptoms.
  • Benzo Detox: Because benzodiazepines are legally prescribed to patients for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, seizures, alcohol withdrawal and other issues, many people are not aware of their harmful effects when consumed in large doses. In the U.S. alone, misuse of benzodiazepines is just as common as prescribed use among adults ages 18 to 25. To combat benzo addiction and overdose, we offer treatments such as art therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and dual diagnosis treatment.
  • Stimulant Detox: Stimulants are psychoactive substances that induce temporary relief of mental or physical dysfunction. Stimulants are often used in the medical community to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD). Diamond House’s San Francisco detox centers aim to address stimulant abuse by reducing withdrawal symptoms, identifying co-occurring disorders, and encouraging healthy habits as part of our clients’ daily routines.
  • Marijuana Detox: Marijuana has become more readily available in recent years due to its legalization in certain U.S. states. Symptoms of marijuana withdrawal include fear, anxiety, irritability, restlessness, poor appetite, poor sleep, tremors and more. Goals of treatment include addressing withdrawal symptoms, preventing complications and helping our clients begin to address abstinence.
  • Psychiatric Evaluation & Treatment: At Diamond House Detox, we conduct in-depth psychiatric evaluations by either a Psychiatrist or a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. Assessments help us identify any underlying behavioral, developmental, emotional or medical conditions that may have contributed to your drug or alcohol use.
  • Dual Diagnosis Treatment: In the past, addictions and mental illnesses were seen as two separate issues that could not be treated concurrently. However, we believe that for some people, drug and alcohol abuse behaviors are forms of self-medication driven by an underlying psychiatric disorder. Our alcohol and drug treatment centers near San Francisco seek to address possible underlying mental health issues along with substance use disorder. Types of dual diagnosis treatment options we offer include detoxification, therapy, medication and residential stabilization.

All patients receive an in-depth and comprehensive psychiatric evaluation performed by a psychiatrist or a psychiatric nurse practitioner specializing in addiction. This evaluation is used to help in the assessment and diagnosis of any emotional, behavioral, developmental, or medical conditions contributing to substance use. The assessment will help us to diagnose and begin treatment for:

  • ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Schizophrenia or Schizoaffective Disorder

Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab in San Francisco

The first step to any recovery is detox. Whatever substances you’re detoxing from, know that our compassionate professionals will stay by your side. We monitor you closely to ensure you’re medically and physically safe as you go through detox. We want you to know you have the support you need to make it through. Detox typically takes a few days, and can last as long as a couple of weeks — but once it’s over, what happens next?

While some people may be able to return to their lives and find support from friends and family through recovery, the vast majority of people dealing with addiction need more than a few days to work through withdrawal. They may need to develop new coping skills or establish a therapeutic alliance as they learn how to live a sober life. The great news is, you can do that here, too.

During or after your detox, you’ll meet with one of our Psychiatrists or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners for an evaluation. During this in-depth evaluation, we will help you decide if you’d be a good fit for our:

  • Inpatient therapy: People with severe addictions or who may not have an outside support system often excel in inpatient therapy. By living at our facility full-time during treatment, you can escape from the stresses of daily life and put your full focus on working through your addiction and other traumas.
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP): The comfort of sleeping in your own bed can be vital to making the most of your treatment. Partial hospitalization means you come into Diamond House Detox during the day and return home at night to sleep and be with your loved ones.
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP): Our outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in San Francisco is the ideal choice for busy individuals who have roles and responsibilities they can’t leave behind. IOP lets you embrace recovery around your schedule through evening meetings and therapy appointments.
