Introduction to Medical Detox

While accepting addiction and seeking help is the first step in the recovery process, some people will need to undergo detoxification of the drugs or alcohol that they are addicted to before they can even begin the treatment plans to create a foundation of lifelong sobriety. At Prevail Recovery Center, we work with many medical detox facilities to start you or your loved one on the right track.

What is Medical Detox?

Detoxification is one of the most difficult phases in recovery, while clients overcome the physical and psychological dependency which for some leads to withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms for an active user depend on length of use and type of substance and vary person to person, but most importantly, coping with these symptoms should be done in a safe and supervised environment. Some people with severe withdrawals may need Medication Assisted Treatment to help stabilize the patient and alleviate discomfort. This inpatient medical detox is overseen by clinical staff 24-hours a day for as long as the individual needs. Prevail Recovery Center will refer you or your loved one to the most trusted of medical detox centers in South Florida so you can begin your journey into clean living.
