What Exactly Is Alcohol Addiction?

Detoxing from drugs or alcohol can be unpleasant, painful, and sometimes dangerous. Unfortunately, withdrawal symptoms are an unavoidable part of the detox process for everyone. Because substances like drugs and alcohol change your brain chemistry, your body will crave the continuation of drug use to function effectively. The release of dopamine, the chemical responsible for emotions like joy and happiness and natural pain management, is significantly influenced by how various drugs and alcohol impact the dopamine receptors in your brain. 

With time, the effects of just one drink or just one dose of an addictive drug are insufficient to achieve desired results. If you are struggling with addiction, it is common to use more and drink more to achieve the same high you remember from the first time you tried drugs or alcohol. When you try to reduce or stop using, cravings and withdrawal symptoms occur as the brain demands your substance of choice. These cravings can be overwhelming, painful, and challenging to manage without medical supervision and assistance at a medical detox program in Spokane, Washington.

When withdrawal symptoms become overwhelming, it is not uncommon for someone trying detox without support to turn back to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate and seek relief from withdrawal symptoms. In the most severe withdrawal circumstances, symptoms can include heart palpitations, seizures, and other life-threatening situations. Severe withdrawal symptoms are even more common when detoxing from specific substances such as alcohol and opioids.

The intensity and severity of the detox program and withdrawal process vary significantly from person to person. You can expect complete medical and emotional support throughout the detox process at a supervised medical detox program. Still, depending on your individual needs, you may receive medications to help reduce the intensity and severity of withdrawal symptoms. You can expect to have your vitals regularly monitored in a medically supervised detox program. Medical detox aims to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual guidance throughout the earliest and most challenging stages of your journey to freedom from drugs and alcohol. 

What Our Clients Have to Say

W.M.

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!

The Continuum of Care for Substance Abuse

Intervention

Interventions have been shown to have a great impact on those who may not believe they have a problem or who refuse to get help.

Medical Detoxification

Medical detoxification is oftentimes considered the first step in the treatment process, where a person is safely detoxed off ofdrugs & alcohol in a safe environment surrounded by medical professionals.

We Are Here.

Residential Inpatient

Once detoxification is completed, it is highly suggested that a person attends a residential inpatient program. This can last anywhere from 30-90+ days and is intensive treatment with 24/7 onsite supervision and medical care.

Partial Hospitalization

A partial hospitalization program is typically a step down level of care where client will receive daily treatment, similar to inpatient, while residing in a sober living environment or at home.

Intensive Outpatient

Intensive outpatient treatment typically occurs once a person completes an inpatient program. This tends to be 3-5 days a week of group therapy and individual sessions.

Outpatient Services

Outpatient services are often one of the last steps in the treatment process. Here a client has completed the previous stages of treatment and begins to re-integrate with society as a newly recovering person.

What Exactly Is Alcohol Addiction?

The initial days of drug and alcohol withdrawal can be some of the most challenging. The physical challenges involved in freeing your body from substance dependence can be unpleasant, painful, and in some cases, dangerous. When you arrive at a medical detox program in Spokane, WA, one of the first and most essential tasks is to detox your body, removing any remaining toxic substances. In an inpatient medical detox program, available medical and mental health supports are used to help reduce the influence of unpleasant symptoms and mitigate potentially dangerous symptoms associated with detoxing.

Management of withdrawal symptoms is a crucial component of the addiction treatment process. It is essential to find a medical detox center where skilled, experienced professionals are there to help by providing the comprehensive support and guidance you need to heal and take the first steps towards lasting recovery. You are more likely to remain in rehab and achieve your treatment goals if withdrawal symptoms are adequately controlled. 

For some people, recovery medication or MAT is an effective way to maintain sobriety and reduce cravings as you progress through addiction therapy. Using MAT for detox or medically supported maintenance therapy can provide you more time to develop the tools you need to manage future relapse triggers. 

Another essential element to look for in a medical detox center is a comprehensive treatment program. Detox itself is not a substitute for addiction treatment. Although cleansing your system of any remaining toxins is an essential first step towards achieving sobriety, it is crucial to learn more about addiction and how to manage challenges to your sobriety in the future. 

The best medical detox centers operate from a holistic approach, offering modalities designed to treat the individual’s mind, body, and spirit. In addition to comprehensive therapy during detox, medical detox centers provide continuous monitoring and 24-hour support to all individuals in their care. This helps ensure medical or mental health support is available whenever needed.

What Sets Our Spokane Detox Facility Apart

Medically supervised programs like ours here in our Spokane, Washington, medical detox program provide the most successful path to achieving sobriety. Our medically supervised drug and alcohol detox program offers a whole-person approach to healing to help you achieve lasting sobriety. We understand that detox and withdrawal can be unpleasant and challenging. Seeking help from Sequoia Detox Center can make the withdrawal process more manageable than might be feasible when trying to quit “cold turkey” without help. 

It is important to remember that detoxing from substances is not treatment. Although it is possible to quit some substances without assistance, simply stopping using drugs or drinking does not address the root cause of your addiction. Maintaining lasting sobriety requires understanding the reasons behind why you use or drink. Successful addiction recovery requires transitioning from detox to a comprehensive, evidence-based addiction treatment program.

Professional Medical & Substance Use Dependency Staff

When you arrive at our medical detox in Spokane, we will work with you to develop a detox plan that focuses on your specific needs. Addiction is a disease that affects everyone differently. For this reason, cookie-cutter detox programs are often unsuccessful in helping you achieve and maintain long-term recovery. 


Withdrawal is necessary for overcoming addiction that should be done as part of a comprehensive and supported addiction treatment program. Withdrawing from drugs or alcohol on your own can be dangerous. At a medically supervised detox program, you can begin your journey towards sobriety knowing you are safe and supported at every step. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you take the first steps towards putting addiction in the past.

Group Therapies

Group discussions and activities have been proven to help strengthen outcomes in addiction recovery, so we have spent a considerable amount of time curating experiences for our patients.

Learn new coping skills, create personalized recovery plans, and understand how your addiction affects your body in a safe and judgement free environment.

Flexible Length of Stay

Our detox process varies based on what substances are being used and how long they have been used. We have stay options from 5 to 7 days, and medical staff will advise patients on how long they should expect to stay during the pre-admission screening. Because each patient’s recovery is different, we will re-assess length of stay during the initial assessment and during treatment.

Private Payment Options

For those looking to maintain the utmost privacy around their treatment, we offer the ability to pay privately for treatment instead of billing insurance (even if you have coverage). If you receive coverage on someone else’s plan, or work in healthcare; you won’t need to worry about insurance statements getting into the wrong hands. 

Dedicated Discharge Planning

With a knowledgeable, dedicated discharge planner, you will be able to create and feel confident in what comes next. Because we strongly believe that detox is only the first step in your recovery journey, we will help you determine what provider will best fit your needs when you leave Sequoia. Plan around your schedule, your budget, and your values; and we will help you get admitted and on to the next provider–without a gap in your treatment.
