When you’re ready to commit to a life of sobriety and leave your addiction to drugs in the past, it’s critical that you find a treatment center that provides you with the opportunity to first work through detox. Detox is an essential part of any recovery program because it allows you to remove the influence of drugs from your system before you start to focus on your long-term recovery.

One of the leading reasons why our clients from throughout the country, including the Philadelphia area, choose to work with our team, is because we have partnered with different facilities that offer immediate access to a detox program local to your area. When you first reach out to us, simply let us know where you’re located, and we will work quickly to set you up with a detox facility. In many cases, our team can arrange for you to begin your detox program within 24-hours of the time that you reach out to us.

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 Drug Detox

It’s important to remember that your physical and psychological reaction to drug detox may be very different from that of another person that is working through their own detox program. One of the reasons for this is that the symptoms associated with drug detox are unpredictable and different for every person. For instance, you may experience more mild symptoms such as shakiness or feeling as though you have the flu while another person may experience something more severe such as extreme cravings or even seizures.

Most clients will only need to spend approximately seven days in detox before they can begin a treatment program. Keep in mind that your withdrawal symptoms will begin to set in within just a few hours from the time that you last consumed your drug of choice so we strongly recommend that you reach out to us as soon as you make the decision to commit to your sobriety so that we can make arrangements for your detox program quickly so you’re never put in a position of potential harm.

What Happens After Drug Detox?

Once you get through the worst of your detox symptoms, you can then begin to focus on putting together a treatment plan that will help you to address every aspect of your addiction. As you’re beginning to consider your options, we strongly recommend that you speak to a member of our team at length about the type of program that you would like to work through. The reason for this is that our team may see certain aspects of your recovery that you may not consider simply because you’re so new to sober. For instance, many people don’t realize the fact that you can stay in treatment for longer than 30 days.

Clients that completed a detox program are encouraged to seriously consider transitioning into our partial hospitalization program once they complete detox. The reason for this is because our partial hospitalization program provides you with a similar level of care that you experienced during the time that you were in detox. You will have access to our staff around the clock and also have the benefit of taking advantage of one of our luxurious single-family residences throughout the time that you’re working through your program.

Partial hospitalization program clients are required to spend a minimum of 25-hours per week participating in therapy. Therapies that we offer at The Source include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy as well as other trauma-based therapy that can help you to identify and overcome certain events in your life that may have triggered your addiction. When you’re not participating in therapy, we will encourage you to enjoy the different amenities that our accommodations have to offer including quick and easy access to the Fort Lauderdale Beach and 12-step meetings that are in and around the area.

Some of the clients that reach out to us aren’t able to commit to a partial hospitalization program for one reason or another. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t receive the care that you need to overcome your addiction. We developed two unique outpatient programs which are more conducive to clients that have certain professional or personal responsibilities.

In comparison to our partial hospitalization program, our intensive outpatient program requires that you commit to a minimum of nine hours of therapy per week. Our general outpatient program requires a minimum of four hours of therapy which is split between three hours of group therapy and one of our individual therapy. The bulk of your time in this program will not only be working toward overcoming your traumatic experiences but also putting together a relapse prevention plan so that you can maintain your sobriety once your program is complete.

Regardless of the program that you select, we encourage our clients to actively participate in the different forms of therapy that we offer at The Source. For instance, group therapy will help you become more comfortable talking to others about your addiction and recovery. In turn, you will get to start to develop your system of support which is a valuable asset. Individual therapy, on the other hand, gives you the chance to speak with a member of our team in a one-on-one setting. During these sessions you will be able to talk about how you feel you’re progressing through your program and make any adjustments.

If you’ve come to a place in your life where you recognize that you’re ready to accept help to overcome your addiction to drugs, you can rest assured that The Source team will provide you the holistic support that you need to meet the goals that you have for your recovery. Regardless of whether you’ve tried to become sober on your own in the past or whether you have worked with another facility in the past, The Source team will provide you with the tools and resources that you need to overcome your addiction once and for all. When you’re ready, reach out to (800) 204-0418.
