Frequently Asked Questions
Hollywood Detox Center provides drug and alcohol detox services for Los Angeles, all of Southern California, and individuals from out of state who are coming to Southern California to receive treatment services. Hollywood Detox Center is a recognized center of excellence for its detoxification services.
We currently have private rooms, but they are often occupied. Our facility has no more than two people per room, and each room is spacious and beautifully appointed.

When people become physically dependent on a substance it can be dangerous, or even fatal if they stop abruptly or “cold-turkey.” People are at risk for stroke, seizure, cardiac impairment, and even death. That’s why Hollywood Detox Center only does one thing: Detox. We do it using the best and most cutting edge methods. Hollywood Detox provides different detoxifications all handled on a case by case basis. We handle subacute detoxification which requires the individual to have 24/7 supervision, nursing supervision, and medical care.
Hollywood Detox Center’s location is conveniently located in Los Angeles, California. We specialize in all chemical dependency, alcohol, and drug detoxifications.
We offer the following detox services: Subacute Medically Monitored Detoxification: This service requires 24/7 care and supervision under the care of our professional healthcare and clinical team. Participants are offered comfortable private or semi-private lodging, nutritious and custom meals, and access to all adjunctive therapy and services. Healthcare and Clinical Case Management is provided throughout the process and the individual is seen by a medical professional daily, monitored, and assessments are made every four hours (or more) depending on the acuity and detox orders.
Behavioral Detoxification: This service is a respite for individuals who are in a sober living or other program that may have relapsed. Sober Living programs find this to be an excellent service for their clients as it removes the relapsing individual from the community, doesn’t disrupt the milieu and the individual is in a safe environment. We still monitor the individual for any withdrawal symptoms but our focus is on optimal clinical services delivery by encouraging the individual to examine their relapse and work in conjunction with the referring organization to meet their goals for the individual.
Pre-Admission Clearance: Hollywood Detox Center has the flexibility to offer a 24 hour stay for individuals who might be admitting into a residential program and need a clearance prior to admission.
Stabilization: Hollywood Detox Center will work with dual diagnosed individuals who may have had a medication, psychiatric, or chemical dependency relapse by providing stabilization services. Our clinical team is comprised of Masters degree and higher levels of education and is extensively trained. We work in conjunction with outside psychiatric providers and professionals to assist in stabilization.
The average alcohol and/or drug detox is from three to seven days. Each detox is different and handled on a case by case basis. Hollywood Detox Center has no minimum or maximum length of stay for participants. The only exception would be for benzodiazepine detoxifications which can require tapers. In the event of a benzodiazepine detoxification it’s common for individuals to have to taper slowly. In this case we may discharge the individual with medication instructions, physician follow-up visits, and an outpatient detox facility.
Hollywood Detox Center aims to be affordable and provide services to everyone in need. Our fees are less than half of traditional hospital based detox programs, and strive to be the most affordable program regionally. Our rates vary depending on the services your require. You’re strongly encouraged to contact our team today to make financial arrangements and verify insurance benefits.

Good question! Because we only do one thing: detox. Unlike other programs, we only focus on detoxification. Hollywood Detox Center does not do residential treatment, sober living, outpatient treatment, or offer any other services except detoxification services. We’ve assembled a professional team of the best and most experienced in the industry. Since we only offer detoxification we are able to dedicate all of our resources to providing outstanding services while meeting the specific needs of our clients.
In our residential detox we provide the following for our daily rate:
* Private or Semi-Private Lodging (Private lodging is an additional cost)
All meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and access to snacks, beverages, and refreshments 24/7
Medication Storage and Observation
1:1 Therapy and Counseling Sessions
Wellness: Guided Meditation, 12-step yoga, and low-impact exercise (as tolerated)
Massage (additional cost)
Cold Laser Therapy (additional cost)
Case-Management (daily meetings)
All toiletries, soap, shampoo, conditioner, are provided
Discharge Planning- You will NOT be discharged without arrangements being made that are satisfactory to you.
Hopefully not. We encourage everyone to be honest about their usage and health history upon admission. This helps us better determine what the best course of treatment is for you. In most cases, there are medications that prevent and treat symptoms that are traditionally associated with being “sick” from withdrawal. Our team is here to minimize any discomfort.
ABSOLUTELY! We do not discharge individuals from detox until they have a discharge referral plan. Based on your specific needs we may refer you to a treatment center, outpatient program, or sober living. You can always contact us after you’ve completed detox, and our case-managers always are available to talk to you.
