Detox is a critical stage of the drug addiction recovery process. Before any course of rehab can be administered, it\'s imperative that all of the toxins are expelled and the patient has a clean system. This is not a step in the process on which patients or their loved ones can afford to cut corners. There are numerous Florida drug detox centers; however an inadequate or poorly managed program can cause patients unnecessary physical damage and permanently discourage them from further treatment.
Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches’ facilities are some of the only ones in the region to offer onsite, medically-supervised detox. Our doctors and nurses are trained to administer expert compassionate detoxification from the widest possible range of drugs. Our goal is to make detox comfortable and tolerable for patients, so they encounter minimal adversity as they endeavor to get clean.
Symptoms of Drug Withdrawal
A patient\'s symptoms during detox will vary according to the duration and severity of their addiction. Symptoms can range anywhere from minimal sickness to serious long-term complications that require further care.
Some of the more common include:
- Accelerated heartbeat
- Nausea and vomiting
- Joint and muscle pain
- Respiratory problems
- Shaking and tremors
- Excessive sweating
Some of the more serious effects of prolonged and untreated drug abuse include seizures, coma, stroke, and long-term hallucinations. Withdrawal symptoms are much more easily managed at a professional facility. We use every available resource, including medication, to ensure patient safety and comfort.
Experienced, Compassionate, and Superior Detox
Many Florida drug detox centers are simply not able to address the increasingly complex needs of the state and national addiction population. These short-falls often lead to relapse, loss of momentum, and exposure to continued physical health risks. We offer state-of-the-art detox for patients suffering from every conceivable type of drug dependency, while helping them maintain their positivity and enthusiasm toward recovery.
