Detox Programs

Addiction involves more than just cravings; it entails a deep physical and psychological reliance on substances. At Banyan Lake Worth Rehab, our inpatient detox programs are customized to support individuals in overcoming substance abuse and moving toward full recovery. 

Drug Detox 

Once a person starts using drugs, it’s only a matter of time before abuse turns into dependency. At that point, the drugs have created a change in the user’s body chemistry [1], resulting in cravings and addiction. The longer someone is addicted and using drugs, the more intense the physical changes incurred by the chemicals in the drugs. The more intense the addiction, the more challenging the detoxification process can be. Our Florida drug detox offers personalized drug detox programs to help patients safely and even comfortably detox from drugs and/or alcohol. 

Recognizing the urgency of the drug detoxification process, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches offers expert, medically managed, traditional inpatient detox services. Detox is indisputably pivotal in the drug treatment journey, facilitating the restoration of a patient’s focus, clarity, and resilience. Proper support during drug, alcohol, or pain pills detox in Palm Beach is paramount for establishing a solid foundation for recovery. This comprehensive detox program aims to eliminate harmful drugs and toxins from the body, addressing uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms resulting from prolonged drug misuse and physical dependence 

Drugs such as benzodiazepines (benzos), stimulants, and opioids alter brain chemistry, affecting neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, GABA, and norepinephrine. Prolonged usage disrupts the brain’s ability to regulate these chemicals independently, fostering reliance on the substances. When individuals with physical drug dependence attempt to quit or reduce usage, they commonly experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms, ranging from discomfort to severe pain, often drive individuals to relapse to ease their distress. 

Common drug detox symptoms include:   

  • Abdominal cramps  
  • Agitation  
  • Anxiety  
  • Confusion  
  • Delirium 
  • Depression  
  • Exhaustion  
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Hallucinations 
  • Headaches 
  • Elevated temperature and/or chills 
  • Inability to concentrate 
  • Increased blood pressure 
  • Increased heart rate 
  • Insomnia 
  • Intense cravings for the substance 
  • Irritability 
  • Muscle and bone pain 
  • Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting 
  • Paranoia 
  • Runny nose 
  • Seizures 
  • Shaking and shivering 
  • Sweating
  • Vivid and unpleasant dreams

To detox safely, professional, medically supervised detox is the best way to go. Not only do our drug detox programs offer round-the-clock care, but our team also administers medication (as needed) to alleviate patients’ symptoms and reduce their discomfort. While no medication prevents all withdrawals, there are medications that our team uses to treat patients that are safe and effective.   

How Long Is a Detox Program?  

On average, the detoxification process typically lasts between 7 and 10 days. However, this can vary from person to person and depends on several factors, such as:   

  • Age 
  • Co-occurring mental illness  
  • Gender  
  • How long they have used drugs or alcohol   
  • How much of the drug(s) or how much alcohol they consumed  
  • Metabolism rate  
  • The type of substance they used   
  • Weight  
  • Whether they have underlying health conditions  

Following medical detox, patients at our BHOPB detox center will be ready to progress to a drug or alcohol treatment program where they will receive individual and group therapy to support their psychological recovery.   

Why Detoxification Programs Are Important  

Addiction detox programs mark a critical first step in treatment and should not be attempted without professional supervision. Chronic substance abusers who try to quit drugs or alcohol “cold turkey” almost always fail and can suffer serious and even life-threatening consequences. That is why detox in a certified and well-staffed facility is so vitally important. Not only do our inpatient detox programs ensure that our clients remain safe and healthy as they go through a challenging period, but they also offer them a clean slate on which they can begin their recovery. Detox removes the challenges of withdrawals and drug cravings, reducing the patient’s chances of relapse and increasing their chances of sustaining sobriety long-term. 

Our Inpatient Florida Detox Programs  

At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, we recognize that the initial phase of recovery is crucial, and it begins with detoxification. Within our inpatient drug detox program, we prioritize safety, compassion, and comprehensive symptom management. Our highly skilled professionals adeptly manage any concurrent medical conditions that may accompany substance abuse, particularly in cases of prolonged dependency where health issues may have arisen. 

Recognizing the uniqueness of each patient’s needs, we meticulously craft individualized treatment plans. Tailoring our approach to account for the specific withdrawal symptoms associated with different substances, we employ cutting-edge medical protocols to mitigate discomfort while closely monitoring for any health concerns. 

Throughout the detox process, patients engage in various addiction therapy programs to fortify their long-term recovery prospects. These initiatives encompass both individual and group therapy sessions aimed at addressing the root causes of addiction. 

For individuals contending with co-occurring mental health issues, our comprehensive co-occurring disorder treatment offers vital support. Our dedicated case managers aid with logistical matters, ensuring seamless navigation of administrative requirements such as FMLA, short-term disability, leaves of absence from work or school, insurance/COBRA, and legal correspondence. 

Education forms a cornerstone of our approach, empowering individuals with insights into withdrawal symptoms and equipping them with the knowledge essential for sustained sobriety and enhanced overall well-being. While numerous drug detox programs promise pain-free and rapid outcomes, we recognize that authentic and lasting recovery necessitates a professionally guided, medically monitored detoxification journey. Our inpatient detox program serves as the foundational step towards sobriety, fostering healing and restoring familial relationships strained by substance abuse.
