Florida Detoxification Treatment Options
Evolutions, an addiction treatment center, partners with South Florida’s most reputable detoxifcation providers who are deeply experienced in administering detox treatment while alleviating the symptoms of withdrawal. These symptoms can range from sleep disorders and anxiety attacks to nausea, delirium and hallucinations. The severity of symptoms depends on a variety of factors such as age, degree and length of substance abuse and physical condition.
Medical detoxification provides both the body and the mind with a “clean slate” with which to work.
A medically supervised detoxification program is essential to rid the body of accumulated substances before an individual is placed into addiction treatment. Medical detoxification provides both the body and the mind with a “clean slate” to work with in order to begin therapy. By detoxing at the commencement of the treatment process, each Evolutions Client readies him or herself to proceed with more intensive therapeutic approaches based off of an Individualized Treatment Plan.
It is important to understand that when a person has an addiction, the body will develop a physical dependence to the addictive substance. This creates chemical changes within the individual’s brain. The chemical and physical changes which happen as a result of substance abuse means that any personal attempt to stop using the substance, especially “cold turkey” as most people try to do, will not be successful and can create dangerous health risks. Medically supervised detoxification minimizes the psychological and physical symptoms that happen due to withdrawal within a safe environment. Detox prior to addiction treatment at Evolutions is considered an essential cornerstone to our treatment plan.
