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 an addict’s past use, transporting the person back to the event of her/his 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 addicts 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 towards 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.

Our Bay Area Rehab Center Includes:

  • 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
