Medical Detox Treatment in Lantana, FL

Research shows that individuals who complete medical detoxification in the early stages of their recovery have better outcomes with long term sustained sobriety. There are many steps to recovery, and detoxification is the first step in this road to recovery.

During the detox, process the patients’ bodies are cleansed from the physical and chemical controls of drugs and alcohol.

Detoxing from drugs and alcohol is not only a mental process, but also a biological challenge to the body. This process can be exhausting both emotionally and physically and sometimes it can be dangerous, which is why it is very important to only detox with the help of medical professionals.

What is a Medically Monitored Detox?

Medically monitored detox differs from other possible detoxification options, the main benefit is that it includes licensed medical professionals on hand throughout the process. During the medical detoxification process, patients cleanse their bodies of drugs and alcohol under the care and guidance of Dr. Robert Moran, our trained medical professionals, and nurses who ensure the patients are managed well through the uncomfortable and sometime life-threatening symptoms of withdrawal and stabilizes the patient in a therapeutic and supportive environment.

What Happens During Detoxification?

A trained medical staff can administer medications and treatments to mitigate withdrawals and ensure patient safety. We want each and every patient to have the safest and most comfortable detox possible, which is why we strive to provide personalized medically monitored detoxification for all substances.

Different substances bring on different withdrawals during detoxification. Some substances may take longer and could be more dangerous than others during the detox process. Alcohol can produce withdrawal symptoms that are very uncomfortable and possibly even life-threatening at times. Without the right support and monitoring during detox, withdrawals can become deadly.

Do Not Detox Without Medical Supervision

One should never try to detox themselves, due to the risks and complications that might arise if not monitored and regulated appropriately. Some of the symptoms associated when the body is detoxing that needs to be professionally cared for are the following:

  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Excessive sweating
  • Dehydration
  • Depression
  • Intestinal Issues
  • Tremors
  • Confusion and Fatigue
  • Rapid heart rate

How Long Does The Detox Process Last?

The detoxification process during this stage of treatment varies depending on complexity of prior usage and length of addictive behavior prior to arrival at our facility.

Withdrawals can vary from person to person. However, with medically monitored detox, patients can be assured they are receiving the best support for their safety, health, and sobriety. Most of the time, withdrawal symptoms start gradually but for some substances, such as heroin, withdrawals can develop within a few hours since the last time of use. Other substances may take longer for withdrawals to start. Withdrawals generally peak a few days after the last use, and then subside with most substances. The detox process usually lasts a few days for most patients.

After Detox, What Is The Next Step?

Detox addresses the physical and chemical controls of drugs and alcohol, but it is not the only step in finding sobriety, this is just the first step. The behavioral patterns, choices, and situations that led to addiction must be addressed.
