Medically Monitored Detox at Banyan Boca
While detox is a crucial step in finding sobriety, it can be life-threatening or immediately followed by relapse without the proper precautions. At our Boca behavioral health center, we offer a variety of approaches to substance abuse detoxification to ensure the safety and long-term success of our patients. Patients in our detox programs will safely break free from addiction with our 24/7 medical support and care. Patients and their families can relax as they take this first step to sobriety.
The Difference with Medically Monitored DetoxA medical detox can last anywhere from one day to two weeks depending on several factors such as overall health, the number of drugs used, patient age, and the length of substance abuse. The withdrawal symptoms include both physical and mental effects that can range from uncomfortable to life-threatening. Because the detox process varies widely from patient to patient, it’s important to find a drug detox center that will tailor its program to each individual’s needs.
At our detox center in Boca Raton, we provide medically monitored detox services to both protect patients from any serious issues that could arise as well as mitigate uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. With medical supervision, detox from drugs and alcohol is considerably safer and typically much more successful. Not only do we tend to patients’ physical needs, but we have developed detox services that offer the care needed to support full health of the mind, body, and spirit.
Our medical detox services include:
- Daily Medical Supervision
- 24/7 Nursing Care
- Daily Therapy Sessions
- Group Support
- Necessary Medications
With these and many other personalized services, our medical detox center in Boca Raton provides safe detoxification. All of our treatments and medications are administered by experienced rehab professionals who follow all legal, clinical, and accreditation guidelines to give patients and families peace of mind.
When to Choose Medically Monitored DetoxThe first step to getting sober is helping the body wean off of drugs and/or alcohol after becoming dependent on these substances. Because withdrawal symptoms from detox can vary drastically, it is always safer to go to a medical detox center than to try detoxing from substances on your own. A medical detox is especially necessary for more severe cases of withdrawal. Severe withdrawal symptoms can occur during detox from a number of substances including alcohol, heroin, Adderall, methadone, and crack cocaine. Withdrawal symptoms are also generally worse with more severe and longer lasting addictions. Those with health problems or complications from their substance abuse should also seriously consider a medical drug detox so that medical staff are present if problems arise.
What Happens After an Alcohol or Drug DetoxBecause addiction is often as much of a mental struggle as it is a physical struggle, a medical detox without other care could lead to an immediate relapse. After an alcohol and/or drug detox, it’s important for patients to continue treatment to address the secondary issues related to addiction and learn to combat relapse triggers. At Banyan Detox Boca Raton, our facility is connected with a variety of treatment options, so patients can be placed in the right type of rehab program for their needs. Patients in these programs will participate in various therapy programs as well as group activities where they will learn more about themselves as well as their addiction. With time, they will be able to re-enter the world outside of treatment confidently and find lasting success.
