Alcohol Detox

Alcohol Detox at Detox of South Florida

Alcohol addiction is rampant in the U.S. It is estimated that over 17 Million adults over the age of 18 are addicted to alcohol. It is a very serious problem that can have long-term debilitating effects on the physical and mental health, productivity, social status, confidence and self-esteem of the person who abuses alcohol.

Though alcohol addiction can be treated, there are many pitfalls to achieving success with addiction treatment.

At Detox of South Florida, we take a humane, compassionate and a caring approach to providing alcohol detox services, with detox programs tailor-made for each individual patient, based on their personal circumstances.

How we treat people suffering from alcohol addiction, at Detox of South Florida?

  • Lend compassion and care, to help patients avoid anger and frustration and help them understand that they NEED detox, and not WANT detox
  • Use a combination of group and individual detox therapies
  • Use adaptable and highly customized 30, 60 or 90-day detox programs, depending on patient’s individual circumstances and alcohol addiction intensity
  • Extensively educate patient about relapse prevention techniques and strategies
  • Allow in-house completion programs, to enable highest chances of rehab success
  • Deploy aftercare planning strategies to help relapse in the long-term
  • Vigilantly restrict unfavorable visitations that can compromise a patient’s detox progress

Why Detox of South Florida is one of the best alcohol detox centers in South Florida?

One of the primary distinguishing factors that makes Detox of South Florida highly successful and very different from other alcohol detox and rehab centers in Florida is the fact that we treat our patients with compassion.

While other detox centers very strongly believe in the “shake-up” or “break-down” approach to detoxification, we at Detox of South Florida understand that suddenly trying to transform an alcoholic’s state of mind is a very disruptive process that only leads to anger and frustration, two very strong emotions that will almost always lead to unsuccessful detoxification. If not completely unsuccessful, it will in the best case result in a very temporary detox before the patient suffers an intense relapse, going back to their old ways.

Also, unlike even some of the other top alcohol detox centers in Florida, we monitor and control visitation rights very intensely. Allowing only very close family members and that too only after approval, we ensure that the patient has the least amount of chance of being negatively influenced by external factors that can compromise our alcohol detox therapy program in Florida.

Why compassion is very important to make a Florida alcohol detox program successful?

A surprising fact about alcohol addicts that most people fail to understand is that alcoholics actually do not know that they are addicted to alcohol. Since alcohol abuse results in ill effects that are often only felt well after the actual act of alcohol consumption, they fail to make to a strong correlation between drinking and the many ill effects they suffer from, well after drinking.

This loophole in their thought process does not allow them to believe that they are alcohol addicts. As they say, acceptance of being an addict is the first step in every treatment process. This is an enabling step that most detox centers get completely wrong, as they do not address the core issue of allowing the patient to understand that alcohol and alcohol abuse is what is debilitating them.

At Detox of South Florida, this first step is where we significantly differentiate ourselves as a South Florida alcohol detox center.

By not forcing patients into accepting detox as a solution, we work on patients in such a manner that they understand that they need detox and not just accept it as a treatment because everyone else thinks it’s the best thing for them.

This singular but very crucial step is one of the main reasons why our success rates are well above the average success rate of other alcohol detox centers in Florida.

How to tell if you need alcohol detox in Florida?

As mentioned earlier, it is difficult for an alcohol addict to accept that they have an alcohol problem. If you answer yes to some, many or all of the following questions, you are probably a good candidate for an alcohol detox program.

  • Are you not able to control your urge to drink?
  • Do you suffer from memory losses or blackouts, after drinking?
  • Do you suffer from accidents or injuries after drinking?
  • Do you miss work, school or social activities because of drinking?
  • Are you not able to control how much you drink?
  • Do you suffer from withdrawal symptoms like sweating, shaking, anxiety and irritability and tremors when you attempt to stop drinking or when you can’t drink?
  • Have you tried to quit drinking alcohol, but failed several times?

As just suggested earlier, if you answered yes to most of these questions, there is a very good chance that you need detox and need it immediately.

The dangers of not seeking alcohol detox in Florida

Long-term effects of alcohol abuse are very dangerous and crippling. Every aspect of your life will be adversely affected if you do not address your alcoholism.

Some of the most pressing problems directly caused by alcoholism are;

If you still have a few more questions, take a look at our FAQ’s below:

  • Research studies on addiction treatment have shown that some alcohol and substance addiction treatment and follow-up procedures are more successful than others. At Detox of South Florida, we emphasize on using the best approaches in alcohol or drug detox.

  • Our goal is to ensure that all our patients regain their physical and mental states of health. Our treatment is therefore tailored to address each patient’s unique conditions. The treatment involves a combination of detoxification procedures such as opiate detox, alcohol detox, and heroin detox, just to mention a few, with other intervention procedures such as group and individual therapy, relapse prevention education, after-care planning, and in-house completion programs aimed at ensuring long-term sobriety and prevention of relapses.

  • Every patient has his or her unique type and level of addiction which is why the treatment period will normally vary from one individual to another. While some patients go through a 30-day rehab program, others will require a 60-day or 90-day program to recover from alcohol or drug addiction. The time it takes to recover will depend on the assessment report provided by the assigned medical professional who evaluates your case.

  • As the best rehab in Florida, we believe a relapse should not be viewed as a failure but rather as a sign to help you get back on track by making necessary adjustments to your treatment.

  • Our rates generally depend on the services provided. The overall cost will be determined by factors such as professional treatment fees, facilities, food, and utilities.

  • Unlike other addiction treatment centers across the country, at Detox of South Florida, we take your treatment and recovery process very seriously. Your treatment against addiction is a comprehensive process that may be affected by unwarranted interruptions. All visitations must, therefore, be approved well in advance by the treating therapist. We do this to ensure that your safety, focus on recovery, and stability are maintained at all times. The only visitors allowed are significant members of your family and close friends.
