Medical Detox

Medical detoxification (detox) is the first step on the road to recovery from addiction. Located in Lompoc, California, Champion Center is licensed as a hospital and is uniquely qualified and equipped to assure a safe, effective, comfortable, and successful medical detoxification on a 34-bed unit in Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation Hospital (CDRH) licensed beds. 

Around-the-clock registered nursing care and daily physician visits are just a part of the superior standard of care provided at Champion Center’s Medical Services Unit (MSU). Diagnostic testing, a medical history and physical, and a psychiatric evaluation are utilized as part of our Santa Barbara drug detox program to establish baseline health status and form the foundation for an individualized addiction treatment plan.

Why Our Hospital Based Detox Works

A fear of dealing with uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms is often the main deterrent for individuals when considering sobriety. Our specially trained medical and nursing staff continually evaluate patients for withdrawal symptoms and monitor patients to assure safety and comfort. Our medical doctors are recognized specialists in addiction medicine, and are certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM)American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM).

Concurrently during this medical phase of care, a primary case manager (counselor) is assigned to each patient and the process of recovery begins.
