Making the decision to overcome your addiction to alcohol is something that you will not soon regret. When you free yourself from the burden of alcohol addiction, you will likely feel as though you have a new lease on life in many ways. Although you may feel internally excited to move forward with pursuing this new and healthier form of life, most of the clients that reach out to The Source for addiction recovery treatment will first need to go through the detox process.

Why Choose The Source for Alcohol Detox

The Source Treatment Center is known as a leading facility for detox treatment due to the fact that we have partnered with numerous detox centers around the country that will help clients through the detox process. Keep in mind that the detox process is different for everyone due in large part to the fact that detox symptoms are unpredictable. This is one of the reasons why alcohol rehab in Florida strives to create a warm and welcoming environment throughout the course of your recovery program. For example, if you opt to take advantage of our partial hospitalization program after detox, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that you can live in one of our luxurious single-family residences throughout your time in treatment. These residences are within close proximity to the beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach as well as several local AA meetings that you can attend throughout the week.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call The Source today.  Our treatment specialists are available 24/7 to discuss your options and help you find the perfect solution (800) 204-0418.

What to Expect During Detox?

It’s important to remember that the detox process is different for everyone due in large part to the fact that there are several contributing factors associated with detox. For example, if you have a severe addiction to alcohol, there is a stronger possibility that you may suffer from more severe withdrawal symptoms. This is one of the reasons why we encourage you to be upfront and honest with us regarding the severity of your addiction when you initially reach out to us so that we can better coordinate with you regarding what you can expect during your detox process.

How Long Does Detox Last?

One of the standard questions that we receive from clients revolves around how long they will need to spend in detox. The majority of clients that go through the detox process will need to spend approximately one week in this type of program. Once you make the decision to work through your alcoholism, we strongly recommend that you reach out to us as soon as possible because withdrawal symptoms can come on quickly. In fact, you will likely begin to feel the impact of your withdrawal symptoms within just a few hours from the last time that you consumed your last drink.

The height of your symptoms will manifest between the first three days of your detox journey. These initial days will unquestionably be the most difficult in your detox journal. There is a possibility that you may feel nauseous, an increase in anxiety, shakiness or stomach issues. In severe cases, there is always the chance that you may also experience seizures. Due to the unpredictability of withdrawal symptoms, it’s never advisable that you attempt to go through the detox process by yourself. You should always receive care through trained medical personnel which is something that you will find when you seek detox options that The Source provides.

What Happens After Alcohol Detox?

Keep in mind that detox is only the first step in your overall recovery. Although our detox program will help to remove the influence of alcohol from your system, it will not help you to achieve the lifelong sobriety that you need. That will come with participation in a comprehensive recovery program that will help you to address the events in your life that may have contributed to your addiction. This is primarily done through participating in certain forms of therapy that will help you to address these important factors in your life and in your addiction.

At The Source, our treatment programs revolve around addressing the pain associated with different traumas that you may have sustained throughout the course of your life. For example, many people that come to The Source may have been first responders or soldiers who witnessed events such as death or injuries that left a lasting impact on their physical and psychological well-being. There are several other clients that have come to The Source who have experienced sexual, physical, or emotional abuse at some point in their life. Regardless of your background story, you can count on the fact that our team will help you work through these events so that they are no longer trigger points in your life anymore.

One of the leading forms of therapy that you will experience when you work through a treatment program at The Source is individual counseling. One on one counseling provides you with the unique opportunity to speak with a member of our team in a personalized setting. There may be certain aspects of your recovery that you simply don’t feel comfortable sharing in the presence of other people yet. This is completely understandable. Individual therapy allows you to share these innermost thoughts with the peace of mind of knowing that everything that you’re saying is in safe hands and that we have your best interest at heart. Individual counseling is also a wonderful time to review your overall treatment plan to ensure that you still get the most out of your current recovery journey. We can make adjustments to your plan at any time which may include changing our therapeutic techniques or extending the length of your recovery program.

Participating in trauma therapy is critical to your long-term recovery. Over the years, The Source team has helped countless people identify and overcome the traumas in their life that may have been holding them back. There are many people who are ready to jump right in and face these traumas head-on while there are countless others who aren’t even sure if they sustained some type of trauma. The trauma therapists at The Source have been uniquely trained in guiding you through different types of therapy trauma that can help you to manage the effect that these events have had on your life.

Unfortunately, family relationships often falter when addiction is a factor. This happens for a multitude of reasons. Some family members may simply wash their hands of the relationship because they are too hurt by watching you hurt yourself as you struggle with your addiction. Also, it’s not abnormal for family members to become so consumed in your addiction that they hurt themselves trying to help you. When you come to a point in your recovery that you’re ready to begin to redevelop these relationships, we can arrange for you and your loved ones to participate in family therapy. Each of these sessions will take place in a neutral environment so neither you or your loved ones feel any pressure. You and your family will have the chance to share, reconnect and learn more about the disease of addiction so that you can start to become a family unit again.

Do you know that there are tremendous benefits of actively taking part in group therapy? Group therapy closely follows the model of a traditional 12-step meeting in the sense that you will have the chance during each session to share your thoughts and experiences associated with a certain topic. These topics can range in subject matter. For example, one day you may talk about a topic associated with sobriety whereas on another day you may discuss a topic that revolves around addiction trigger points. We always encourage every group member to share openly, honestly and respectfully. In turn, you should take advantage of listening to other people that are in your group as you may come to find that you have a lot in common with them. This can help you to begin to build your system of support which is something that is invaluable to you for the rest of your life.

The Source Treatment Center team is dedicated to providing you with the support that you need to work through every facet of your addiction. Regardless of the severity of your disease, we supply you with the tools that you need to overcome your addiction so that you can live a more fulfilling and happier life. A member of our team is available right now to help you begin to put together the framework for a recovery plan. In most cases, we can have you set up with an active plan to get you the help that you need right away.
