In Washington State, more than one in every ten people aged 12 or over has a diagnosable substance problem. Historically, rates for these problems are even higher in Everett and other municipalities in Snohomish County. Untreated addiction is well-known for its ability to damage lives and relationships. If you’re affected by addiction, prompt enrollment in a rehab center can help halt and reverse the spread of this damage. The power of rehab lies in its ability to support the establishment of both short- and long-term drug and alcohol sobriety.

Rehab fosters this sobriety by combining two vital phases of addiction recovery. In the first phase, you get help reining in your uncontrolled substance use and detoxifying your system. In the second phase, you develop your newly detoxified state into an enduring, substance-free lifestyle. 

Looking for an Everett drug and alcohol rehab center that can help you free yourself from addiction’s remorseless cycle? Turn to the acknowledged experts at Sequoia Detox Centers. We specialize in substance-specific detox methods that support the opening phase of your recovery. At the same time, we provide customized services that help you transition effectively into your recovery’s second phase.

Sequoia Detox Center is a drug and alcohol detox center in Washington that can help you or a loved one overcome addiction. Contact us today to learn more.

Detox’s Role in Overcoming Substance Intoxication and Withdrawal

Addiction is a compulsive, chronic, and potentially recurring brain disease. It not only drives you to seek out drugs or alcohol without considering the effects of your actions. It also puts you in a physically dependent state that deepens your motivation to keep the cycle going. 

There’s a very strong chance that anyone affected by addiction will be intoxicated on the day they decide to start rehab. There’s an equally strong chance that they will experience withdrawal in the hours or days following their final episode of substance use. 

In their own way, both intoxication and withdrawal ramp up the difficulty of getting sober. While you’re intoxicated, the odds are high that you will at least partially lose control of your behavior. And during withdrawal, the intensity of the symptoms you experience can make it difficult for you to avoid drinking or taking drugs once again. 

In medical detox, you get help overcoming the twin specters of intoxication and withdrawal. It does so by:

  • Providing a substance-free environment that puts the focus on your sobriety efforts
  • Making that environment as relaxing, positive, and supportive as possible
  • Safeguarding you as you work your way through the remaining stages of intoxication
  • Managing withdrawal and lowering the severity of its effects on you

The Course of Detox in an Everett Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

To maximize its effectiveness, medical detox follows a set course of actions. The steps in this overall design are then customized to your specific needs and situation. Things get underway with an entry evaluation on the first day of your enrollment. This evaluation, conducted by a member of your detox team, focuses on key factors such as:

  • What you need to remain stable and safe at all times
  • The roles that supplements and intravenous fluids should play in your detox plan
  • Which medications are known to ease your potential withdrawal symptoms
  • The psychological and educational goals of any counseling or therapy you receive during detox

The results of your evaluation are used to formulate your coordinated detox plan. This plan serves as an adjustable blueprint for the care you receive.

The primary goal of detox is moving from intoxication and active substance use to your first taste of substance abstinence. Progress toward this goal is regularly tracked and updated. The end result is constant feedback on how best to support you at any given stage of detox.

The detox process is both complex and unique to everyone who goes through it. Together, these facts explain why your care team won’t be able to give you an exact prediction of how long your program will last. Instead, you’ll receive an estimated timeline that serves as a useful point of reference. 

The range of that timeline depends on the nature of your substance addiction. Typically, you can expect to spend anywhere from:

  • 48 hours to 10 days detoxing from alcohol
  • 72 hours to five days detoxing from stimulants
  • Four days to three weeks of detoxing from opioids
  • 14 days to two months or more detoxing from prescription sedatives

Generally speaking, a calm state of mind and a focused attitude increase your chances of detox success. That’s why effective programs place such a strong emphasis on comfortable, distraction-free environments. At Sequoia Detox, we go beyond the norm established by most rehab centers. Our top-tier features include private accommodations and catered dining services.

What Our Clients Have to Say


As someone that previously utilized other detox/treatment centers in the in the Spokane area and out of state, Sequoia was by far the most comfortable and effective experience of them all. While the private rooms and other amenities are great, the comprehensive and personalized medical care from Dr. Knutsen, the counselor, pharmacist, and RN/CNAs are the true reason for the 5 star rating. I appreciate all Sequoia did to get me started on the right track.

Sarah J.

My name is Sarah and I highly recommend this detox center. They helped me so much I can't even tell you. I went from hell to heaven in a matter of days. I instantly felt safe when I got there. It is medically assisted but they do not force medication you do not want. The food was all catered. They are a private doctor owned facility and the people are really there to help. It was unlike any treatment facility I have been to in the past. I was there 5 days and am now 11 days sober. I could not have done it without their help.

Liliac L.

I had a wonderful experience at Sequoia Detox Center. The place is very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. They helped me through my issues and with their location being private it allowed me to focus on me and my road to recovery. Thanks SEQUOIA!

Seeking Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment in Everett Following Detox

By itself, medical detox is an essential part of your efforts to regain your sobriety. It plays this part not only by helping you cope with withdrawal on your way to initial abstinence. In addition, completion of detox is an essential precondition for moving on to an active treatment program for addiction.

When they start their recovery journeys, many people don’t understand the difference between detox and continuing treatment. While detox is where you reach an abstinent state, active treatment is where you create a reliable daily routine that allows you to preserve your abstinence. Together, the two types of care form a single, coherent path. 

At Sequoia Detox, we’re committed to making your move from detox to active substance abuse treatment in Everett as straightforward as possible. That is why Sequoia Detox Centers offer a full continuum of care, so every step of the recovery process can occur at our treatment center.
