Detox Programs for Addiction
Addiction is not just a craving for a drug; it is an actual dependence on a substance. Frequent and long-term drug abuse can lead to biological changes that make it hard to stop. Because of this, many addicts must undergo a substance abuse detoxification to help them overcome their addictions once and for all. At our South Florida behavioral healthcare center, our drug detox programs are designed to help patients beat their substance abuse problems and move forward in the recovery process toward comprehensive healing.
What Is Drug Detox?
Drug detox or detoxification is the process of removing harmful drugs and toxins from an addict’s body. This detox process is typically accompanied by uncomfortable and even dangerous withdrawal symptoms that can vary in severity and are different for everyone. In order to do this safely, a professional detox program for addiction is the best option.
Why Professional Detox Programs Are Important
Addiction detox programs mark a critical first step in treatment and should never be attempted without professional supervision. Chronic substance abusers that try and 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; your life is quite literally at stake.
Our Detox Programs in Palm Beach
The first step towards recovery is detox, and at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, our team of professionals delivers the kind of world-class care that enables individuals to safely detox and begin their journey to lifelong recovery.
Our inpatient drug detox offers safe, compassionate, and comprehensive symptom relief. Each patient begins their treatment with medically supervised, onsite, residential detox at one of our facilities. Our professionals are qualified to treat withdrawal symptoms to minimize the discomfort of the withdrawal process and to provide immediate care in the event of a medical emergency. Our staff can also treat any medical issues that patients may have in addition to their substance abuse. Particularly long-term substance abusers may have a number of health issues due to the damage they have sustained from their drugs of choice over the years.
Our treatment specialists want to ensure that each patient is provided the best care possible, so we provide every patient with an individualized treatment plan that is designed to meet their specific needs. Because every drug is different and has its own unique withdrawal symptoms, our Palm Beach addiction detox programs keep this idea in mind. From a heroin detox to alcohol detox, we use the most up-to-date medical protocols to try and lessen the pain and discomfort of withdrawal from any drug while also monitoring all potential health warning signs.
While completing detox, patients will also begin a variety of unique programs and therapies to assist in their long-term recovery. Some of these programs include seeing a therapist both individually and in group sessions to address the underlying causes of their addiction. For those who struggle with an underlying mental health issue, our co-occurring disorder treatment will help them start to tackle these issues as well. 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.
We?also educate individuals in detox about possible withdrawal symptoms associated with the substances they have abused. This is the beginning of an educational process that continues in treatment, empowering those in recovery with the knowledge that can help them remain sober and improve their overall wellness in the years to come.
Moving Forward After A Drug Detoxification
Detox is a crucial component in the recovery journey, but it is only the first step. The detox process for any addiction can be intense; however, we are here to make sure that you successfully complete a detox program so that you can begin treatment. After detox, most patients will enter our residential addiction treatment program in Palm Beach. At this point, they will begin to dive into their therapy programs and focus on other aspects of addiction that need to be healed in order to have long-term success.
If you are suffering from any addiction, we are here to guide you on the path towards recovery. Contact us today to learn more about our addiction detox programs.
