Re-start your life and heal.

Table of Contents

As a major U.S. city, Tacoma has its fair share of local residents affected by a drug or alcohol problem. Once addiction is present, it takes considerable effort to return to a sober lifestyle. The surest approach to achieving this goal is to seek expert help. Drug and alcohol detox specialists provide you with a way to make your initial return to sobriety. And when detox is done, substance treatment specialists help you maintain your ongoing abstinence. The combination of these two resources makes professional support so effective.

Sequoia Detox Centers provide premier recovery resources for Tacoma and surrounding Washington communities. These resources include customized detox services for drug, medication, and alcohol addiction. In addition, they include personalized assistance to help you make the move from detox to rehab.

Detox and the Need Professional for Detoxification Programs

When used excessively, alcohol and a wide range of prescription drugs have toxic effects on your system. The same effects occur if you use any amount of a variety of street drugs. When you halt your damaging substance use, you begin to detoxify your body. In other words, you start eliminating alcohol, drugs, or medication from your bloodstream. 

This elimination process is typically trouble-free if you’re not dependent on the substance in question. But if you are dependent, there’s a high chance you’ll develop withdrawal symptoms when you stop using that substance. Withdrawal can be a serious mental and physical ordeal, even when its clinical effects are not that severe. This helps explain why so many people give up their recovery attempts rather than deal with the symptoms they experience. 

For some, withdrawal can also be both unpredictable and dangerous. That’s particularly true if you have a long history of heavy sedative or alcohol use. Without rapid treatment, complications from alcohol or sedative withdrawal can put your life at serious risk. 

Professional detox plays a crucial role by maximizing your chances for a smooth, successful detox process. Instead of relying on do-it-yourself remedies, you’ll receive the help that’s proven to make withdrawal easier for most people. This help also makes the withdrawal process far safer for those at-risk for complications.

Undergoing a Detox Evaluation

Like all effective substance recovery resources, detox is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Instead, everyone who enters a detox program must receive the help that fits their personal needs and circumstances. For this reason, you start your detoxification enrollment by undergoing an evaluation process. This process is designed to account for everything that could affect you as you make progress toward initial abstinence. That includes things such as:

  • The types and amounts of the substances still left in your system
  • Your habitual patterns of use for each of these substances
  • Whether or not you have other significant mental or physical health issues

Your current social circumstances may also significantly impact your detox process.

At Sequoia Detox Centers, we maintain the highest standards for detox evaluation. Our thorough methods help ensure that potential withdrawal factors are addressed. Contact us today to learn more about our step-by-step evaluation methods.

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!

Detox Supportive Care as a Preliminary Step to Addiction Treatment in Tacoma

While all effective detox is customized, certain forms of support are needed by everyone who goes through the process. Techniques that fall into this category include:

  • Making sure that you’re comfortable and distraction-free
  • Keeping your fluid levels high enough to avoid dehydration
  • Providing for all of your nutritional needs
  • Monitoring you for any signs of problems or complications


Sequoia Detox follows all modern guidance on the use of these bedrock detoxification techniques. Talk to our knowledgeable staff to learn more.

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. 

The Role of Medication in Substance Detox

Medication may be combined with your standard support options during substance detox. People detoxing from opioids or alcohol are most likely to receive this additional help.

 A detox medication for opioid withdrawal may be designed to act as a temporary substitute for a stronger substance. You may also benefit from a non-opioid that eases some of your withdrawal symptoms. A benzodiazepine sedative can help you weather the effects of alcohol withdrawal. In addition, a range of medications may be needed to help you deal with any alcohol withdrawal complications.

At Sequoia Detox Centers, we follow personalized medication protocols during the detox process. These protocols allow us to provide options that are the best possible choice for your situation. For more information on the role of detox medication, contact us today. 

Detox Psychotherapy 

In substance recovery, psychotherapy is best known for its use in rehab. However, it can also be valuable while you’re still enrolled in detox prior to entering Tacoma substance abuse treatment. The therapy you receive in detox can help you:

  • Get a better picture of how you’ve been affected by addiction
  • Learn more about what it takes to regain your sobriety
  • Improve your understanding of detox vs. treatment in substance rehab


You may go through detox therapy in individual sessions that only include you and your therapist. You may also participate in group sessions along with others enrolled at your detox facility.

Sequoia Detox makes extensive use of psychotherapy as a detoxification resource. Therapists are on duty throughout the day and into the evening. You can take advantage of their expertise at any time during your enrollment. To find out more about the benefits of detox therapy, talk to our team of specialists today.

Continuing on to a Tacoma Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center After Detox

While detox is crucial to your sobriety efforts, it only serves a limited set of purposes. Those purposes do not include keeping drugs or alcohol out of your system after you get sober. To achieve that essential goal, you’ll need to continue on to a treatment program once you complete detox. Detoxification specialists are aware of this fact. That’s why preparing you for rehab is one of the chief tasks of all suitably designed programs.

Sequoia Detox Centers go the extra mile to help make sure that you’re prepared for rehab when detox ends. We feature onsite teams of detox discharge specialists. These specialists not only help you get familiar with the concepts of rehab. They also help you take the steps required to make the crossover to a Tacoma drug and alcohol rehab center.
