Our Florida Detox Center Offers a Safe Place to recover
When you’re ready, we’re here to provide you with a safe and comfortable place to recover. Our professional staff will help you develop a detox plan, assist you during the process, and start building the bridge to take you from detox to our Beachside Rehab inpatient program for long term success.
How Does A Drug Detox Center Help?
A drug detox center serves as the first step in addiction treatments. This is the period when our patients can remove harmful drugs and alcohol from their bodies and start the path to a clean recovery.
As the name implies, detoxing cleanses the system of drugs or alcohol and works to diminish our patients’ physical dependency on these substances so that they can focus on psychological dependence issues during treatment. Like any drug or alcohol treatment, detox is a very personal journey for individuals and the methods that our rehab detox centers use are entirely unique and personalized to the individual receiving treatment.
Why Is It Important to Use a Substance Abuse Program to rehab?
When entering a facility like Beachside, you have the support of a full clinical staff to help you through your detox journey. Upon entry, you will be given a physical examination to evaluate your current health needs so we can develop a personalized detox plan. By having a structured detox program, a roadmap to success is built for you from the moment you walk through the door.
Different Substances That Require the Help of a Detox Center
Any type of substance that alters your mood requires detox prior to treatment. The most common substances that patients must detox from before proceeding with treatment include:
What is Medically-Assisted Detox?
There are two main types of detox available at our detox center: detox with the help of medication and without. There are positive aspects to both types of detox options, and the best solution will end up being whichever option works best for your specific situation. However, there are a few differences in these treatment methods you should be aware of.
For heavy users of specific substances, detox can be difficult. With the use of certain drugs administered by medical professionals, withdrawal symptoms can be reduced, and patients can be more easily weaned off the drug. For example, common “substitute drugs” that are frequently used include suboxone and methadone, which are both safer alternatives to other, dangerous and highly addictive drugs. The one downside to this type of detox is the danger that patients can, in turn, become addicted to the substitute drug. This is why it’s vital for medically-assisted detox to be closely monitored by experienced and licensed professionals.
Detox without the help of medications is also an option for some patients. However, this greatly depends on the type of substance involved, as well as the depth and degree of their substance abuse problem. A licensed and experienced therapist can help guide you through whichever type of detox is best for you.
What is Substance Withdrawal?
When we talk about the physical dependency that is created by the use of these illicit substances, we are also talking about the withdrawal symptoms that come with abstaining. Withdrawal symptoms are the specific physical reactions that your body experiences once the use of drugs or alcohol has ceased. In many cases, withdrawal symptoms can be extremely severe. It’s one of the main reasons why many patients have not had success getting sober in the past since giving up is easier than pushing through the pain of detox. Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms include:
- Depression and anxiety
- Sweating, shaking, and fever
- Nausea and vomiting
- Headaches and migraines
- Delirium tremens (DTs)
- Difficulty breathing
- Grand mal seizures
- Muscle tension
- Heart attacks
Are There Detox Options for Dual Diagnosis?
Dual diagnosis is a term used to describe a co-occurring mental disorder that accompanies drug or alcohol abuse. These types of disorders may often be difficult to diagnose as some of the symptoms of one disorder can be easily mistaken for addiction or substance dependency. Choosing a luxury detox center that is experienced in treating dual diagnosis patients will be key in ensuring success in the detox process.
Detoxification programs are particularly helpful in identifying dual diagnosis and co-occurring conditions, as once the effects of drugs or alcohol are completely out the system, it may make underlying mental conditions such as mood disorders, anxiety, and depression more obvious. As with any detox plan, it’s important to consider the client’s specific needs before recommending treatment. Since each person is different, his or her journey through recovery and detoxing should reflect that. At Beachside, our team of expert therapists and counselors are trained and experienced in providing safe and comprehensive detox services for all. Find out more today (888) 985-3414.
What Is Detox Like at Beachside Detox?
Upon arrival at our detox center, patients are assessed and guided through an intake process designed to identify specific treatment needs and detox requirements. It’s at this point that a therapist is assigned to you and they start building a relationship with you and asking you about your needs. Some questions may be asked to determine the specific details in regards to your drug or alcohol use. At this time, it’s best to be completely honest since the answers provided will help shape future treatment plans.
After a tour of the facility, patients are shown to their rooms and receive help with unpacking and making themselves comfortable. Once settled, patients then receive a full physical examination to determine any other health problems that are pertinent to recovery. Those who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction may often be malnourished or dehydrated, so it’s important to start addressing these concerns prior to starting detox and treatment.
At this time, we establish whether a patient will need a medically-assisted detox plan as symptoms of withdrawal typically begin to show after 12 hours of not using a substance. Once the physical withdrawal symptoms begin to subside, and patients are physically able, they will begin their personalized treatment plan that includes a combination of group and private therapies as well as other activities and treatments.

What Happens After the Detox Process?
Depending on the complexity of the treatment required, patients might successfully complete a detox program in 30 days. Other patients may need to stay longer in order to ensure success and prevent relapse.
During your time with us, we help you develop a plan to move forward in your recovery once your detox is over.
The next step into inpatient care works best when it’s provided the moment you’re finished with detox and are ready for treatment. The earlier we can help provide treatment and transition you to residential care, the faster recovery will be. It’s important to keep in mind that detox is only the first step in a much larger recovery process.
