Will 2018 be the year you finally get clean and sober–for good?

Detox is a vital step toward overcoming any drug addiction. But what is it, and what will it do for you? If you’re considering treatment for yourself or a loved one this year, it’s helpful to know what you can expect in a detox facility like Boca Detox.

What Is Detox?
In the realm of addiction treatment, “detox” refers to the removal of drug toxins from the body. But the word “detox” in general refers to the process of removing any toxins that build up in the kidneys, liver and colon.

Before detox begins, clients undergo a comprehensive medical exam, which allows medical and clinical staff to gain a better understanding of a client’s health and history of substance use.

Benefits of Detox
Many clients make the incorrect assumption that they can detox at home. Familiar surroundings are nice, but this method is just plain dangerous. Withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening, and medical supervision is necessary. There are numerous benefits to detoxing in a professional drug detox center, namely medical supervision. Round-the-clock medical care ensures a client’s safety.

Detox doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. A professional detox center prioritizes client comfort and provides a warm, welcoming setting that feels more like home and less like a hospital. Boca Detox offers private rooms and medical and clinical staff who provide constant physical and emotional support for clients during this first step.

Professional detox also decreases the risk of relapse. At Boca Detox, we help clients identify the triggers that lead to relapse, so clients know how to manage them moving forward.

Withdrawal Symptoms
Clients detoxing from drugs are likely to experience a range of withdrawal symptoms. Undergoing detox in a medically-supervised environment helps keep these symptoms under control. Common withdrawal symptoms include:

• Insomnia
• Irritability
• Vomiting
• Nausea
• Flu-like symptoms

Withdrawal symptoms are minimized with a medication regimen of non-habit forming, non-sedative drugs administered by a medical professional.

Life After Detox
At Boca Detox, we assess an individual’s needs and carefully design a treatment plan for each client. Personalized care is our top priority, as we want to help each client detox safely and comfortably. We offer several different detox services, including:

• Alcohol detox
• Drug detox
• Opiate detox
• Benzodiazepine detox
• Synthetic drug detox

But the real work begins after detox. We work with local and out-of-state inpatient and outpatient treatment programs, so we’re able to offer clients a real plan for life after detox–and a lasting recovery.
