At The Source, our only goal is to help people with substance use disorder (addiction) to overcome their struggles and get the mental health treatment they need to have a thriving life free from alcohol and drug addiction. The beginning of most addiction recovery journeys starts with drug detox. It’s an important first step to help you to overcome withdrawal symptoms and cravings so that therapy and holistic treatments can lead to healing the causes of substance abuse.
Our drug detox Fort Lauderdale, FL offers is a program for detoxification that will help you in an outpatient setting or through one of our reputable drug detoxification partners. Our rehab centers carefully assess your recovery needs before starting to ensure that our drug detox Fort Lauderdale offers is a perfect fit for you and will direct you to our partners should your withdrawal from drugs be more severe.
How Does Drug Detox Work?
Drug detoxification is essentially one of the addiction treatments that involves stopping all drug abuse so that the physical reliance that has formed on addictive drugs such as prescription medication, heroin, cocaine, and meth among others can be healed so that the body can return to its normal functional state. This process can be difficult when done alone because the body is so reliant on the drug that you experience withdrawal symptoms that range from moderate to severe.
In our drug detox Fort Lauderdale has, we will provide you with a medical detox program for more severe withdrawals through one of our healthcare partners if you need inpatient detox. You will be monitored throughout the process to ensure your safety as well as your comfort during this otherwise difficult process and then return to our treatment centers for the behavioral therapy and our holistic drug addiction treatment to overcome the causes of addiction.
How Long Does Drug Detox Last?
The majority of drug detoxes will last between 5 and 7 days but some may last up to 10 days. Symptoms will start relatively quickly and can set in within hours of the last substance abuse so you’ll start your outpatient or inpatient rehab program in Fort Lauderdale, Fl right away. By roughly the third day, you can expect your symptoms to peak and then begin to decline – of course, with access to our and our partnered substance detox programs, you will be comfortable and safe through the process.
Can an Addict Detox at Home?
If you are addicted to physically addictive drugs such as RX drugs, meth, heroin, or cocaine, then detox at home poses real risks. If your symptoms are expected to be mild and you have ample support at home to help you not relapse, then our outpatient detox may be suitable, offering you medication to help with some of the symptoms. However, the risk of relapse is high and due to your suddenly-lowered tolerance to drugs, you may risk drug overdose.
With our drug detox, Fort Lauderdale offers, you can detox safely in an inpatient setting through our medical partners ensuring that you don’t relapse and all of your symptoms are monitored and managed effectively.
What Drugs are Used in Detox?
The types of medications used during detox largely depend on what type of drug addiction it is. If it is opioid addiction, then buprenorphine, suboxone, and methadone may be used. For depressant-type drugs such as Xanax, benzodiazepines may be used along with antidepressants. All physically addictive drugs produce withdrawal symptoms and most of them produce mainly psychological effects so antidepressants become a part of most drug detoxes as well as minerals and supplements to help your body heal.
