Medically Monitored Detox in Palm Beach

Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches offers Medically Monitored Detox in Lake Worth, Florida, for patients who have become physically dependent on a substance. Detox is often the first step in a patient’s recovery journey, medically stabilizing them and ridding their body of drugs and toxins before going on to receive further therapeutic care. Detox is a crucial stage in the addiction treatment process and is one that should never be attempted alone or without medical supervision. Without professional care at behavioral health centers, serious complications and even death may occur. At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, our medically monitored detox program features around-the-clock doctors and nurses on-site to ensure each patient’s safety. We employ the use of medications that can ease the physical symptoms of withdrawal, which can be unpleasant and lead to relapse when not in a supervised environment. Patients remain on-site at the facility while completing the medically monitored detox program at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches under constant care and supervision. It is during this time that patients are able to begin gaining clarity and insight into their addictions and prepare to continue care at a less intensive level.

What to Expect During Medical Drug Detox

Here at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches we are able to safely detox patients off a wide variety of substances. Our services include drug and alcohol detox for a variety of substances. Whether a patient has developed a dependence on alcohol, opiates, amphetamines, or other drugs, they are evaluated individually by our medical team to develop a detox plan that will best meet their unique needs. Only licensed medical professionals can best determine how a patient should be treated, which is why completing medical detox in Palm Beach is so important when seeking addiction recovery.

  • Sweating

The timespan and severity of detox symptoms can vary greatly between each patient, depending on the substance(s) they have been using, the amount they have been using, and for how long.

At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches Medically Monitored Detox program, we closely monitor each individual so that adjustments can be made to their treatment plan accordingly. Our goal is to provide each individual who comes through our doors with the most comfortable detox process as possible and to give them the tools they need to continue on their path to sobriety.

While completing medically monitored detox in Palm Beach, patients begin seeing a therapist both individually and in group sessions to address the underlying cause of their addiction. Case managers are on staff to assist with any paperwork relating to FMLA, short-term disability, leaves of absence from work or school, insurance/COBRA, and legal correspondence. Our property has a full cafeteria, where patients are prepared and served all three meals daily.

Following detox, residential treatment is often the most appropriate step in addiction treatment.
