Best Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Detox for Philadelphia Residents
The Source Addiction Treatment Center in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, FL is home to world-class drug and alcohol rehab programs. While we at The Source are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about addiction treatment, we do not provide medical detox in our facility. Instead, we work directly with trusted detox programs that have been vetted and thoroughly inspected by our staff to ensure the facility meets our high standards of quality care. Each facility has been toured by the Source team, we’ve talked extensively with their leadership and staff, and reviewed their programs thoroughly to make sure their values and standards are aligned with our own. This all means that you can have confidence that you are going to a high-quality detox facility. Just as we will treat you like family here at The Source, we will only recommend detox facilities we would feel comfortable sending our own family to!
Why Go To Detox for Drug and Alcohol Addiction?
Addiction is a complicated disease that affects the mind and body and results in physical and mental dependence on drugs or alcohol. If the brain and body have been dependent on substances for a long time, abruptly discontinuing use can be shocking to the system and often results in painful side effects such as headaches, nausea or vomiting, seizures, and other life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. Due to the risks involved, medical detoxes are recommended over attempting to do it on your own. During medical detox, you will be monitored by doctors and nurses who will ensure your vitals are stable and can administer medications that will help ease any discomfort you may have. They can also intervene should you experience life-threatening withdrawal symptoms.
How Long Does Inpatient Detox Last?
While everyone’s experience during detox will be different and depends on several factors, the typical length of stay in an inpatient detox facility is seven to ten days. It is important to understand that that is the average length of stay and your experience will depend on how your body tolerates the absence of drugs or alcohol.
What Happens After Inpatient Detox?
After you have successfully detoxed, it is advised you continue your treatment by attending an inpatient or outpatient drug or alcohol rehab program. This is a crucial step in your recovery process because you will address the root causes of addiction such as trauma, behaviors, and genetics. We will handle all the details of safely transitioning you from the detox center facility to The Source by providing transportation and coordinating with the staff there.
Benefits of Traveling for Addiction Treatment
Addiction treatment will undoubtedly benefit you in many ways, and having the opportunity to travel to receive this treatment can too! Benefits of traveling for treatment outside of Philadelphia include:
- Attending rehab far from home or in a different state gives you the chance to temporarily separate yourself from your loved ones who may be enabling unhealthy behaviors. While they may have good intentions, or be unaware they are doing it, enabling you while you’re in treatment can be confusing and may inhibit you from being fully invested in treatment.
- Traveling for treatment is also beneficial because it removes you from the environment where your addiction thrived and can help decrease impulsive behaviors.
- Having a change in scenery can drive home the fact that you are embarking on a journey to a healthier, happier life.
- Traveling to Florida for treatment gives you the opportunity to enjoy all the beauty the Sunshine State has to offer!
