It’s never advisable that you attempt to go through the detox process unless you are under the care of an experienced professional. The reason for this is that as your body begins to withdraw from your drug of choice, you could potentially experience withdrawal symptoms that can quickly become fatal. The Source maintains connections with detox facilities all over the country. When you first call in, we will put you in contact with a facility that suits your specific needs so that you can begin the detox process in a safe and secure location.

What to Expect During Drug Detox

Transitioning from a life of drug addiction into a life of sobriety and healing is something that should excite you. It’s important to remember, however, that you may need to overcome some hurdles in order to get there. The time that you will need to spend in Fort Lauderdale detox is dependent on a number of factors. First and foremost, we will need to assess the severity of your addiction as well as your drug of choice. From there, we will put you in touch with a detox facility that can accommodate your needs.

It’s almost impossible to predict how you will physically or emotionally feel as you begin to go through withdrawal. In most cases, you will begin to feel withdrawal symptoms within a few hours from the last time that you consumed your drug of choice. Symptoms can range including feeling as though you have a severe case of the flu, body aches, disorientation, and an increase in anxiety.

The length of time that you will struggle with these symptoms is something that also varies depending on your drug of choice. For the majority of clients, you will likely begin to feel better after five to seven days. However, it’s not uncommon for withdrawal symptoms to linger for a few months. Although you will not need to spend months at a detox facility, it’s important that you have a clear understanding that it’s possible that you may continue to feel the impact of withdrawing for a longer period of time.

What Happens After Drug Detox

Once you are through the detox process, you can then begin to focus on finalizing treatment plans. The Source team works with you to develop a treatment plan that is personalized to your care needs. As such, you will have the chance to make certain decisions in connection with your plan. One of the things that you will need to decide is the type of program you would like to enroll in. If you feel as though you need a more structured recovery plan where you can exclusively focus on your recovery, our partial hospitalization program may be the perfect option for you.

Our partial hospitalization program provides you with the around the clock care that you need to begin to focus on every aspect of your recovery. Part of your programs entails spending a minimum of 25 hours a week participating in various therapeutic activities.  This program incorporates different forms of therapy including group therapy, individual therapy, as well as the option to take advantage of our more intensive trauma therapies. During your downtime, you will have the opportunity to enjoy one of our luxurious accommodations, attend a local 12 step meeting, or workout at the gym.

For clients that feel as though they don’t require the 24/7 care that our partial hospitalization program provides, we offer the option to enroll in our intensive outpatient program or outpatient program. Clients that decide to enroll in our intensive outpatient program will come to our facility for a minimum of nine hours per week. The focus of your therapy sessions will be similar to that of a partial hospitalization program in the sense that you will work with our team to identify the events in your life that may have triggered your addiction. Additionally, you will collaborate with our counselors to put a plan in place that can help you to avoid relapse once you are done with your treatment program.

Our outpatient program would be beneficial for a client that needs to see to personal or professional responsibilities, however, he or she still understands that they need help in overcoming their addiction. If you decide to enroll in our outpatient program, you will participate in a minimum of three hours of group therapy per week as well as at least an hour of individual therapy. During the course of your treatment, we will also encourage you to attend local 12-step meetings. You will notice that 12-step meetings closely follow the model of a group therapy session. Attending 12-step meetings will help to reinforce the important tools and lessons that you are learning during your time at The Source.
