Drug & Alcohol Detox Program

Withdrawal symptoms play a large role in addicts and alcoholics deciding to get clean and sober. The painful, uncomfortable, and grueling feelings associated with ridding your system of drugs and alcohol after your body is accustomed to having them daily, deters people from making this important choice. Fortunately, doctors and addiction specialists have studied the science and pharmacology behind detoxification and now have specific protocols for every level of addiction to ease this process to get through it with minimal discomfort.

A drug and alcohol detox program in South Florida is the first step towards recovery, but is never recommended on its own without therapy and treatment. It is wise to note that detox programs only treat withdrawal symptoms. There is no behavioral therapy involved with detoxification, so it is highly encouraged and recommended to continue with a treatment program following detox.

What are the Different Types of Detox Programs in South Florida?

Because every person’s situation is unique, there are different types of detox programs and settings available to meet everyone’s needs. These include:

  • Inpatient, Hospital or Clinic-Based DetoxAt an inpatient detox program, clients are constantly under medical supervision by medical professionals for the entire length of detox. Inpatient detox is recommended for more severe addictions.
  • Outpatient DetoxCustomarily in outpatient detox programs, the clients are free to come and go from the facility where medication is administered. Certain medications can be taken at home, while some can only be given out at the facility. Clients in outpatient are not under constant medical care, however vitals and symptoms are checked regularly when the client checks in.

What is different about FCR is that during our outpatient detox phase, we provide complimentary housing and around the clock medical care in order to achieve the best medical results.

What to Expect at Our South Florida Drug & Alcohol Rehab

The symptoms associated with withdrawals vary by the types of drugs that are abused. While detox programs work to minimize these symptoms, they may still be present. Typically, while under a detox protocol, symptoms will be mild. However, if you choose to detox on your own at home, there could be dangerous and even life threatening complications.

Mild symptoms of withdrawals include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever
  • Chills and hot flashes
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Sweating
  • Headache
  • Tremors

It is important to be honest with the doctor when you enter our South Florida detox program, so they be sure to put you on the right medications at the proper dose to ensure you have a smooth detox. If detox is not managed properly, or an addict or alcohol decides to quit “cold turkey”, dangerous symptoms can be present. Such as,

  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Seizures
  • Suicidal thoughts and severe depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Delirium tremens
  • Extremely high or extremely low blood pressure
  • Hallucinations
