Do you feel as though your life is in turmoil as a result of your drug addiction? Have you noticed that friends or family members are starting to distance themselves from you because they can’t stand to be around you when you’re under the influence of your drug of choice? Are you ready to make a commitment toward living a sober and healthy lifestyle? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then it’s time for you to reach out to a member of The Source Treatment Center team.

The first step in your recovery is going through a detox process. Although making the decision to become sober is one that will reap tremendous benefits, it’s important not to overlook the fact that you will experience a physical and psychological reaction to that decision. In fact, within just a few hours of the time that you make the decision to quit your drug of choice, you will begin to feel certain withdrawal symptoms.

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.

If you live in the Delray Beach area, it’s critical that you reach out to our Fort Lauderdale facility as soon as possible so that we can help you put together a plan to get you to one of the detox facilities that we work with. For many people, withdrawal symptoms will render them unable to care for themselves for a certain period of time. Withdrawal symptoms can vary and may include nausea, seizures, insomnia, depression or an increase in anxiety. Regardless of the symptoms that you experience, you will be unable to properly care for yourself during this stretch of time which is why it’s critical that you never attempt to go through the process by yourself.

What to Expect During Drug Detox

One of the common questions that we receive from prospective patients revolves around what they can expect during their time in drug detox. When you initially reach out to The Source team, we will need to gather certain information regarding your addiction. Although it may feel uncomfortable or awkward talking about the severity of your addiction, it’s critical that you disclose these details to us so that we can begin to formulate a plan for your detox and recovery.

From there, we will begin to speak with you about your detox options. We maintain relationships with detox facilities that are in and around the Delray Beach area and can usually have you set up to go to one of these facilities within 24-hours from the time that you first reached out to us. The majority of clients will need to spend at least a week in detox. The height of your symptoms usually develop anywhere between the first and the third day and subside between the fifth and the seventh day. It’s essential that you’re transparent with us regarding the severity of your addiction so that we help to prepare for your time in detox and further treatment.

What Happens After Drug Detox?

It’s important to remember that detox is only the first step on your road to recovery. Once you have removed the influence from your drug of choice from your system, you will have the clear mind that you need to truly commit to your recovery. One of the first decisions that you will need to make is whether you’re going to work through our partial hospitalization program or one of our outpatient programs.

If a client recently completed a stay in detox, we will always recommend that they transition into our partial hospitalization program. This is due to the fact our partial hospitalization program will provide you with the around the clock care that you were accustomed to when you were in detox. We will provide you with access to a luxurious single-family residence for you to live in during the course of your treatment and require that you spend at least 25 hours per week in treatment. When you aren’t in therapy, you will have the opportunity to explore Fort Lauderdale beach or attend a local 12-step meeting.

Our intensive outpatient program or our general outpatient program are well-suited for clients that cannot commit to a partial hospitalization program for one reason or another. Clients that decide to take advantage of our intensive outpatient program will be required to spend at least nine hours per week in treatment whereas general outpatient program clients will need to commit to a minimum of four hours a week in therapy. At The Source, we utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques to help our clients overcome their addiction. We believe that the root cause of addiction steps from some type of traumatic event, therefore, we offer different types of trauma-based therapies that help you to identify and overcome the negative emotions associated with addiction.

In addition to trauma-based therapy, we also utilize more traditional forms of therapy including behavioral therapy and group therapy. Of course, we also encourage you to actively participate in individual therapy. Individual therapy gives you the opportunity to interact with a member of our team in a one-on-one setting. We will speak with you about events in your life that you may not feel comfortable sharing in a group setting and check in with you as to how you feel your treatment plan is progressing. If any adjustments need to be made to your plan, we can make those changes during these sessions.

A member of The Source Treatment team is available right now to help set you up with options for a drug detox and treatment. We understand the stress that is often associated with addiction which is why we do everything that we can to help you to bring peace to your life. We encourage you to take full advantage of the initial call that you make to our staff and speak with us about any questions or concerns that you have.
