The Role of Spokane Substance Abuse Detox in Your Recovery

Supervised detox, or detoxification, is the beginning of effective, durable addiction recovery. It helps you achieve essential goals that include:

  • Ceasing your substance use
  • Coping with withdrawal symptoms that occur as drugs or alcohol leave your system
  • Reaching a substance-free starting point for the next phase of your recovery
  • Initiating that next phase by entering a drug or alcohol rehab program

All forms of detox rely on core methods of stabilization and support to help you through the process. These methods include:

  • Tracking vital signs such as your blood pressure and heart rate
  • Using as-needed IV fluids to help rehydrate your body
  • Providing nutritious food and as-needed vitamin and mineral supplements
  • Carrying out detox in surroundings that help you stay calm and focused

Additional options are also used to help you detox from certain substances. The most common of these options is medication.

At Sequoia Detox Centers, we specialize in comprehensive detoxification support. Our customized services make it possible to stop using any addictive substance and reach a sober state. By doing so, they help you gather the momentum needed to keep your recovery going. To find out more about substance abuse detox in Spokane, contact us today.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Nicholas A.

I came to Sequoia when I was at my lowest due to heavy alcohol use. I was treated with kindness and compassion, and never felt any judgement. I was comfortable during medication assisted detox, and was kept informed of my care the whole time. The facility is very nice, with each person having their own room and television. When I relapsed and began drinking heavily again, Sequoia was my first call and I returned for a second stay because my first time was so pleasant. For anyone who need a detox facility and is wondering where to go, look no further than Sequoia.

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.

Kelsi B.

I didn't know what to expect coming in, besides that I expected to leave after detoxing for a few days, but the amazing staff have opened my eyes so much about myself, my addiction, and my mental health. I am now heading to inpatient treatment that I believe will be life-changing for me. They helped me so much here and then personally sought out the perfect program for me to go as my next step.

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!


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.


My overall experience was absolutely amazing. I feel set up for success as I continue my journey to inpatient treatment. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone struggling with addiction that needs to detox.

Detoxing From Specific Substances

Medication is commonly used to help people detox from alcohol. You may receive a benzodiazepine sedative to ease your withdrawal symptoms. In addition, you may receive medication to help you recover from any alcohol withdrawal complications. Such complications are most common among people who have consumed alcohol in extreme amounts for years or even longer.

Opioids are a large group of addictive, narcotic substances. All of these substances are closely related to a second group of narcotics known as opiates. The opioid/opiate family includes:

  • Heroin
  • Prescription drugs such as morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone
  • Fentanyl
  • Methadone

The methods used to help you detox from all of these substances are essentially the same. In addition to supportive care, you will receive some form of medication to help ease withdrawal. That medication may be a short-term replacement opioid. It may also be a non-opioid option like clonidine.

Stimulants are a diverse group of drugs and medications that increase your central nervous system’s rate of activity. Substances that belong to this category include:

  • Amphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine, or meth

Stimulant detox doesn’t typically rely on medication. Instead, it makes extensive use of the stabilization and support options common to all detox programs.

Benzodiazepines are an extended family of medications used as tranquilizers or sedatives. This family includes widely used prescription drugs such as:

  • Ativan
  • Xanax
  • Valium
  • Klonopin

Detox from these substances is somewhat unique. Instead of eliminating them from your system all at once, they’re eliminated gradually over time. The goal of this approach is to minimize your exposure to severe withdrawal.

Wondering if you or your loved one
needs addiction treatment?

We understand how challenging it can be to know if and when you or your loved one needs help with addiction.  By taking this quiz, you can get a quick assessment of some signs that may indicate whether or not you need to reach out for help. 

Rehab and Washington Substance Abuse Treatment

After completing detox, you can transition into the next level of care which is either inpatient or outpatient. Regardless of which path you choose, the most important thing is getting started with detox and ongoing therapy to learn how to replace substance abuse with healthy behaviors and how to develop the skills that you need to continue your recovery long-term. 

Therapy and Services

Residential programs offer several benefits and they represent the highest level of care. If you need or want constant supervision and the chance to extricate yourself from your daily life and live full-time at a treatment center, inpatient programs are worth considering.

You can choose long-term or short-term programs that help you with your initial detoxification and then focus on highly structured treatment for all other aspects of addiction.

All of your services are provided at our clinic so you are never alone and you never have to travel far.

Meals and other accommodations are provided for you so you can feel at ease, completely comfortable in our setting.

Your individual and group therapy sessions as well as other holistic treatment can tackle psychological factors that might relate to your personal history, as well as social factors like your lifestyle or relationships to understand potential causes and triggers. 

Transitioning back to your daily life after participating in a residential program can be stressful because it is often a harsh contrast between peaceful and accommodating to that of stressful and overwhelming. That is why understanding that there are several levels of care can make it easier for you to pick more than one program as part of your overall treatment and still find support with traditional outpatient programs that offer weekly support groups or group therapy sessions.

This treatment is designed to support your long-term recovery by doing such things as:

Limiting your chances of relapsing back into substance use

Helping you understand the form of addiction affecting you and addiction in general

Showing you how to spot unhealthy habits that reinforce substance abuse

Teaching you how to change those habits in ways that help you stay sober

Providing you with practical skills that support the maintenance of your day-to-day sobriety

Extensive research has been done to determine the best possible options for effective substance recovery. Because they’re thoroughly researched, these options are known as evidence-based treatments. Programs based on such treatments are the modern standard for all rehab providers.

There are two main categories of evidence-based addiction care: psychotherapy and medication. Psychotherapy is used to treat all forms of addiction. In addition, many therapy options support recovery from multiple kinds of substances. The most widely used of these options include:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy

Contingency management intervention

12-step facilitation therapy

Family therapy

Motivational enhancement therapy

These treatments can be used in individual or group therapy sessions. They’re also suitable for inpatient or outpatient treatment plans.

Available medication options are more limited. However, they play an essential role in the treatment of alcoholism and opioid addiction. In fact, your chances of recovering from these conditions without the help of medication are fairly slim.

Transitioning from Detox to Rehab for Substance Abuse in Washington

To achieve a lasting recovery, you can’t rely on substance detox alone. Detox simply isn’t designed for this purpose. Instead, you must make your next steps in addiction and substance abuse treatment. But the transition to rehab can be daunting for someone who has just completed detox. And the more complicated the process is, the lower the odds that you will actually enroll in a follow-up rehab program.

At Sequoia Detox Centers, we not only provide a complete range of detox services. We also fully support your transition into drug or alcohol rehab that meets your unique needs. Our discharge planning services help you keep things simple as you stay focused on your ongoing sobriety efforts.
