Drug Detox

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.

Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches realizes the time-sensitive nature of the drug detox process, and offers expert, medically managed, traditional inpatient detox in all of our locations. Detox is arguably the most important part of the drug treatment process, because it helps to restore a patient’s focus, lucidity, and strength. Proper support for drug, alcohol, or pain pills detox in Palm Beach is crucial for a strong foundation of recovery.

How to Safely Detox from Drugs

The biggest battle during detox is withdrawals, which are symptoms that vary depending on the severity of the addiction, the duration of addiction, and the types of drugs. Withdrawals can start within hours of last use, and they can last several days or several weeks. Common withdrawal symptoms experienced during Florida drug detox include:

  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Rapid Heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Itching
  • Sleeplessness
  • Lethargy
  • Chills
  • Cravings

The exact detoxification symptoms will vary depending on the type of drug used. But rest assured, the professionals at our Florida alcohol and drug rehab can help patients safely detox. We utilize medical support systems to help make detox as safe and comfortable as possible. With medical support, we can mitigate the withdrawal symptoms often associated with drug, alcohol, or heroin detox in Palm Beach. Safe and comfortable detox is possible.

The Importance of Professional Drug Detox Services

Drug detox is a sensitive medical procedure and should be left to the professionals. Individuals who attempt to detox on their own experience dramatically higher relapse rates and hardly ever achieve a full recovery. Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches’ facilities offer a safe, sterile, and comfort-oriented detox.

Our Florida alcohol and drug rehab is one of the only behavioral health care organizations in the area to offer the option of detox at our facility. Our experts are trained to treat the symptoms of every form of addiction and work with patients to successfully complete detox and move onto inpatient treatment at our rehab centers in Palm Beach.
