When a person is thinking about working on overcoming their addiction, it’s important that they take several factors into consideration. Although it’s critical to put in place a treatment plan that will help you to achieve long-term sobriety, it’s just as critical to consider going through a detox program can help to remove the influence of drugs from your system. Taking this step will help you to have a better focus on what you need to do to overcome your addiction and live a healthier life.

One of the reasons why many of our clients make the decision to work with The Source team for their treatment is due to the level of support that we provide to them. From the moment that you reach out to us, you will see the difference in our approach. If you first need to go through a detox program, we can arrange for you to attend a program that is close to your West Palm Beach location. We have proudly partnered with a number of detox facilities throughout the country so you can rest assured that we will be able to find something that will suit your needs.

What to Expect During Drug Detox?

Although the premise of drug detox seems straightforward, the process can be challenging. There are several reasons why you should never try to go through the detox process by yourself. One of the issues with going through detox is the fact that it’s nearly impossible to be able to predict what withdrawal symptoms you are going to experience. For the most part, your withdrawal symptoms will begin to develop within a few hours of the last time you consumed your drug of choice. However, it’s possible that it may take several days for your withdrawal symptoms to manifest depending on what drug you are addicted to.

Many clients have reported that they feel as though they are combating a bad case of the flu when they are going through the detox process. Sweatiness, vomiting, shaking, and feeling generally sick are all examples of withdrawal symptoms. The issue with detox is that your symptoms could very quickly turn severe to the point where you would be unable to care for yourself. We strongly recommend that you turn to the team at one of the trusted detox facilities that we have partnered with.

What Happens After Drug Detox?

Once you are done with your drug detox program, you can then begin to focus on working with The Source team to develop your treatment plan. One of the first things that we will do when you come to The Source is run a complete psychological and physical assessment of you. This will include running a blood panel on you and taking the time to learn more about your psychological history. From there, we can truly begin to dig in and help you to create a treatment plan that will help you to meet your goal of long-term sobriety.

One of the decisions that you will need to make is whether you are going to work through our partial hospitalization program or an outpatient program once you are done with detox. When possible, we will recommend that you take advantage of our partial hospitalization program. The reason for this is that our partial hospitalization program provides you with the same round-the-clock care that you experienced during detox. You will live in one of our luxurious single-family residences close to our Fort Lauderdale facility and participate in a minimum of 25 hours of therapy per week. When you are not in therapy, you will have the option to attend a local AA meeting or indulge in a relaxing massage.

We realize that some of our clients may have personal or professional responsibilities that you may need to see to when you are done with your detox program. For these clients, we offer both an intensive outpatient program or a general outpatient program. Intensive outpatient program clients will participate in at least nine hours of therapy per week and our outpatient program clients will participate in at least four hours of therapy per week. Three of those hours will entail group therapy and at least one hour of individual therapy.

During individual therapy, you will speak personally with a member of our team to discuss various aspects of your addiction and recovery. We will take the time to review your current treatment plan and make any adjustments that need to be made. Additionally, we will help you to work through the different emotions that you may be experiencing as you progress through your program.

You will notice that group therapy will closely resemble a 12-step meeting. These sessions will entail talking about different topics associated with addiction and sobriety. You will have the opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings regarding these topics. In turn, you will have the chance to listen to the ideas and opinions of the other people in your group. This is an excellent way to make connections with other people in your group and begin to develop your own system of support.

Regardless of the treatment plan that you choose, you will still participate in various forms of therapy that will help you to identify the trauma in your life that may have triggered your addiction. Our trauma-based therapy will also help you overcome your trauma so that it no longer causes the pain and struggle that it did during the time that you were in active addiction.

The Source team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you take the first steps toward living a new and sober life. Our team works quickly to set you up with a detox facility so that you can begin to focus on your treatment journey. Don’t spend another day in the grips of addiction. Please reach out to us today at (800) 204-0418. We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you in any way that we can.
