Drug detox occurs when a person decides to stop using substances, and all traces of the drug leave the body. Withdrawal symptoms, which can range from mild to severe, can mark this period, leading many people to fear the detox process. However, this period is essential to long-term recovery from drug addiction. At Remedy Therapy Behavioral Health, we want to help our patients through the withdrawal period. When they enroll in our drug detox program in Stuart, Florida, they receive the tools they need to stay sober over extended periods. Please contact our drug detox center today at 516.414.2607 for more information about this treatment option.
What to Expect at Our Drug Detox Center
When an individual enrolls in our drug detox center, our team starts by providing a comprehensive medical assessment. This evaluation allows us to gather information concerning the person’s history of substance abuse and physical and mental health concerns. It’s critical for the patient to be honest during this process because the information we receive at this time allows us to create an individualized treatment plan. After we complete the evaluation, we’ll create a detox plan.
Our team will ensure that the patient can be safe and successful throughout the detox process. Each patient will receive around-the-clock care from our medical and clinical experts as they go through the process.
How Long Does a Person Remain in Our Drug Detox Program?
The length of the detox process ranges from person to person, but the average length that the process lasts is roughly seven to ten days. However, many factors can change the length of the process, including:
- The patient’s physical and mental health
- How long they’ve been addicted to the substance
- The type of substance they used
- How severe their addiction was
- The method they used to abuse the substance, such as snorting, swallowing, or injecting
Unfortunately, many people attempt to go through the detox process alone using over-the-counter detox kits or going cold-turkey. In rare cases, this method can work, but it is rarely very successful, and if the person’s addiction is severe, this choice can be dangerous or life-threatening. It’s not possible to determine how severe the individual’s symptoms will be until the detox process has started, and it’s usually too late to get help by that point. As a result, often, those trying to detox on their own cannot manage the symptoms that come along with the detox process, and they return to using drugs. However, they often take too much of the drug in an effort to make the withdrawal symptoms stop, which can lead to an overdose.
A detox program can provide support and accountability for those who are trying to overcome an addiction to substances. No matter how severe the patient’s addiction is or at what level they abuse substances, the experts at Remedy Therapy Behavioral Health can help. We are a clinician-owned-and-operated treatment center, which means each person on our staff has experience in assisting patients to put an end to their substance use.
