What Is Detox?


Detoxification, also referred to as “detox” for short, is a service provided at Hotel California by the Sea, Bellevue, to safely manage the (sometimes dangerous) withdrawal symptoms of clients freshly off of drugs or alcohol. Detox ensures that no matter what substances someone might be withdrawing from, they are monitored around-the-clock by medical professionals who specialize in addiction. 24/7 surveillance by medical professionals allows our staff to immediately address any issues that could arise during the detox process.

With 24/7 medical monitoring and medication-management, clients can rest easy knowing they are not alone during one of the most challenging phases of their recovery.

Hotel California by the Sea cuts no corners in ensuring that our clients have the best opportunity to get through this challenging period with as much support as possible.
