Above It All: Detoxing the Residents of Anaheim for a Better Tomorrow
Addiction to alcohol and drugs is one of the most debilitating diseases ever. Defined as a “primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry” by the American Society of Addiction Medicines, ASAM, alcohol and drug addiction is caused by the dysfunction in these circuits that leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. ASAM further explains that these symptoms are reflected in individuals who pathologically pursue relief or reward through substance use and other behaviors.
Symptoms of addiction as explained by ASAM
According to the American Society of Addiction Medicines, addiction is often characterized by a person’s inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and dysfunctional emotional response.
Compared to other diseases, substance abusers who try to quit their addictive behavior and get their life on track, will experience cycles of remission and relapses. While people who relapse may shy away from future substance abuse treatment, failure to treat the addictive behavior will cause the addiction to progress, which may lead to disability and in some severe cases, death.
That is why at Above It All, we have tailored our treatment programs to fit everyone; to tie into every lifestyle and encourage everyone to seek treatment; whether, they have tried it before and failed or is taking the very first step to recovery and a new life free from addiction. At Above It All, we believe that everyone can be treated and that there’s no one too far gone to recover.

The Detox Process and why it is Important to your recovery
Substance detoxification is the very first step to a successful and comprehensive rehab program. Detoxification provides a stable basis for your sobriety and is necessary to help lessen unpleasant or fatal consequences caused by sudden withdrawal from the addictive substance. Entering into a detox program before fully committing to rehabilitation is encouraged and is the first step in all of our drug and alcohol rehab programs. We do this because detoxing provide psychological healing, which helps with the transition from years of substance abuse to stabilization and recovery.
So, why should you detox with a treatment program such as ours, rather than do it yourself at home?
The answer is simple, self detoxification can be dangerous, if you do not know what to do. That is why, we strive to provide our clients with a detoxification of the mind, body and soul, while ensuring that it is effective and done in a safe environment.
During the detox process, the body and mind are rid of harmful toxins; however, not all detox processes are the same, simply because not everyone is the same and no two drugs or addictions are alike. Because going “cold turkey” can sometimes be lethal, our detox programs are designed to gradually reduce the addictive drugs. This means that we decrease the dosage of the addicted substance gradually, until it is completely out of your system.
So why detox with us?
Once your situation have been carefully evaluated and analyzed by one of our addiction recovery specialists, we will enroll you into one of our clinically supervised detox programs. We provide round the clock medical supervision, ensuring that the addictive substance is completely out of your system before beginning the rehab and treatment process.
Detoxification happens in a safe and compassionate environment that nurtures you and set you on the right path to recovery. You are supported along the way and encouraged by our trained staff, which in turn reduces the risks of relapse, while simultaneously controlling all withdrawal symptoms.
