In-Home Drug and Alcohol Detox in California:

Kinkaid Private Care offers drug and alcohol detoxification from the privacy and comfort of your home, providing an expert clinician-led care team to supervise the process from beginning to end. We ensure you successfully cleanse your body of all toxins gained from a substance use disorder, while successfully managing withdrawal symptoms.

We also provide your loved ones with the support and resources they need to assist in your recovery process. By the end of your detox, your condition will be stabilized and your body and mind will be back to their natural state, so you will be ready to begin the treatment phase of your recovery.

What is Detox?

Detoxification is the first step in the substance abuse recovery process and involves the physiological removal of toxic substances, such as drugs or alcohol, from the human body. Detox is required for any substance to which you have become physically addicted, such as alcohol, methamphetamine, cocaine, opiates, or more.

Detox comes with a variety of withdrawal symptoms that vary depending on the individual, the substance to which you are addicted, and the level of your addiction. See below for the types of addiction we treat, along with more information about the withdrawal symptoms for each.

Kinkaid’s Multidisciplinary Care Team

We use an integrated team approach for our in-home detox program to ensure your safe and effective recovery. Our team consists of the following:

Lead Physician and Addiction Specialist:

Our team is led by a board-certified physician and addiction specialist with more than 20 years of expertise in the field.

Skilled and Experienced Nurses:

Our team of highly qualified detox nurses provide premium care and remain with you throughout your detox process. Also, because you are receiving your care at home, our nurses observe and monitor any potential family interactions and/or home triggers that may hinder your recovery process. They then recommend customized solutions to these issues if need be.

Behavioral Therapist:

Depending on your situation, your care team may include a behavioral therapist to perform some preliminary evaluation and counseling as needed. Our behavioral therapists have extensive experience in the field of addiction and co-occurring mental health conditions and can help you and your loved ones during your recovery process.

Aftercare Specialist:

Our aftercare specialist helps direct you toward your next phase of treatment once your detox process is complete. Remember, detox is only the first step in your recovery.

The Kinkaid Home Detox Process

Our detox process is managed by a team of in-home nurses with decades of experience administering a variety of types of home detox. Our nurses are trained to provide high-quality care in a kind and professional manner, while also prioritizing excellent communication with patients and families.

As we only take on a few clients at a time, we are able to provide premium care and closely manage each patient’s detox process. Moreover, as we recognize that no two substance abuse cases are identical, we always customize our detox process to fit each individual patient’s needs. In general, though, our detox process features the following:

Comprehensive In-Home Assessments and Monitoring:

Our nurses and physicians visit you at home throughout your detox process to conduct physical assessments. You also have an addiction nurse specialist with you whenever we administer your medication to monitor your blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen level, and withdrawal symptoms.

Furthermore, our nurses communicate any assessment changes and request medication adjustments from your physician as needed, and you will have direct access to our nurses and physician throughout your in-home detox process. Ultimately, our goal is to maintain your safety and keep you completely comfortable, allowing you to get the rest you need to heal and recover.

Virtual Home Visits:

We also offer immediate access to your physician via FaceTime for virtual home visits. Our nurses can arrange a virtual home visit directly with your physician and prepare you for your FaceTime call. These virtual doctor visits add an additional layer of support and allow you quickly access to your doctor.

Holistic Therapies During and After Detox:

In addition to our ongoing nursing care, we offer various in-home therapies that help reduce detox symptoms by promoting relaxation, mindfulness, and stress reduction. These therapies include:


How you follow up your detox is just as important as the detox itself. And while it may be tempting to stop your recovery process after detox, you need to continue recovering and do so in a way that is comfortable for you. Our nurses will help you create a comprehensive post-detox plan so you can safely and effectively continue your road to recovery. Learn more about our Detox Aftercare Planning here.

Which organ is involved in the detoxification of drugs and alcohol?

The liver is the primary organ responsible for the detoxification of the body. It removes toxins from the bloodstream, metabolizes drugs and alcohol into nontoxic compounds, and carries away waste products.

What does detoxing feel like?

The withdrawal effects of different drugs vary. People often compare the effects of opioid withdrawal to an intense flu; alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal can include tremors, sweats, and hallucinations; and stimulant withdrawal often parallels severe depression and anxiety. Withdrawing from any drug often includes intense drug cravings as well.

Can I Detox in 24 hours?

Detoxification typically takes between 3-7 days. This can vary depending on the quantity of substances taken, the duration of use, and factors such as your age or weight, but a 24-hour detox is extremely unlikely.

Is detoxing from home safe?

Many drugs are unsafe to detox from without the help of medical professionals, including alcohol, benzodiazepines, or barbiturates. But you can detox safely from home with the help of a medical in-home detox team, who can provide targeted medications and treatments to reduce your withdrawal symptoms.

What should I take to detox?

Have available any medications that you’re currently taking, as well as any relevant medical information that may help your provider determine a treatment plan. Wearing comfortable clothing is also advised – as well as having available anything to occupy your time, such as a book or journal.
