Substance Abuse Detox Santa Monica, CA

Families find themselves in crisis when they discover a loved one has a problem with substance abuse. For decades, the stereotypical addict has been depicted as someone living on the fringes of society, but in recent years the true nature of substance abuse has been made public. Dr. Brent J. Michael helps remove patients from the clutches of substance abuse.

Substance abuse knows no boundaries. Professionals, laborers, homemakers, honor students and children have been caught in the web of addiction. Wealthy, middle-class and struggling families have felt the heartache and abandonment that comes when a loved one is a substance abuser.

Our substance abuse detox treatment is administered with confidentiality, compassion and understanding for the patient and his or her family. This condition takes a substantial toll on families – relationships, finances, hopes and dreams are all severely impacted. We help the patient detoxify from the substance abuse, and we assist the family in the healing process.

Personalized Treatment for Detoxification

Prescription medication for chronic pain often includes opioids, and in the process, many people become addicted in the attempt to relieve pain. The level of opioid addiction has reached record levels, creating a health crisis. Some physicians, like Dr. Michael, are working to help people recover from this addiction.

Among the effective treatments for this type of substance abuse is a medication, Suboxone. When taken correctly under medical supervision, it detoxifies the body and helps in recovery while minimizing the symptoms of “cold turkey” withdrawal.

Successful treatment for substance abuse takes time and determination. Dr. Michael is committed to assisting his patients to reach their optimal level of health. For some, this entails substance abuse detoxification. Successful recovery from this condition requires a medical team that understands your situation and is willing to meet you where you are with compassion, knowledge and encouragement. This is the team you will have with Dr. Michael.

If substance abuse is ruining your life or that of a loved one, contact Dr. Michael today. Schedule an appointment for assessment and consultation. Start on the road to recovery now.

Greg Kove

Dr. Michael is not your average doctor. I feel fortunate to have enjoyed Dr. Michael as my primary GP for over 6 years and have found him to be extremely trustworthy, personable, knowledgeable, honest, thorough, compassionate and non-judgmental. He takes the time to talk to you and to listen to all of your concerns. Dr. Michael is someone you can talk with and he really cares about each one of his patients. He listens and provides suggestions. A patient couldn't ask for a more caring physician than Dr. Michael. The entire office staff is extremely friendly, personable and accommodating. Dr. Michael is a great doctor, mentor and friend. I'm glad I have him as my primary care provider! I am forever grateful to Dr. Michael and strongly recommend him to anyone who desires personalized care.

Dr. Michael takes time to listen, diagnose, and prescribe the best treatment possible. He made me feel comfortable talking to him about all of my health concerns and I left my appointment with answers to all of my questions. Dr Michael really understood what I was feeling both emotionally and physically and communicated that understanding to me.

Jose Hernandez

Dr. Michaels is easy to talk to, down-to-earth as well as smart and competent. It feels more like you’re getting good advice from a personal friend who is also a licensed physician. I have been recommending him to friends and family for years now and with absolutely no complaints. He is always able to fit me into his schedule and help me as promptly as possible. I haven’t had to wait more than twenty minutes after checking in to see him. He is very knowledgeable and polite and is willing to answer all of my questions without being rude or cold.

Alex D.

Dr. Michael is very friendly and easy to talk to. His staff is great and his nurse was absolutely wonderful. I didn’t catch her name but she was quick, very efficient and friendly! I will definitely be sticking around with this doc for as long as I can
