Can I Go To Detox Center in Florida, Then Go Straight Back Home?

If opiate addiction has taken over your life, it will eventually spiral until it is out of control. Substance abuse traps its victims in a vicious cycle in which there is a need for the source of one’s addiction to simply get through the day. As time goes by, tolerance builds until more of the drug is necessary to get any type of reaction. It can get to the point that it is impossible to concentrate on anything else. Jobs suffer. Relationships break down. Health is threatened. The only way out of such a destructive habit is to get help from medical professionals who understand the addiction recovery process. Detoxification is the initial stage of treatment.

Is it Possible to Attend a Detox Center in Florida without Additional Treatment?

When you finally accept the fact that the only solution for addiction is professional help, the first step is detox. Many victims of substance abuse believe that this first stage of treatment is the only thing that is necessary in order to overcome addiction. While it is true that detox is crucial in breaking the cycle of substance abuse, it is only the beginning. Detox is a medically supervised stage of treatment in which the victim of substance abuse ceases all use of drugs or alcohol. This will allow the body to gradually eliminate any toxins that have built up through the use of any type of drugs or alcohol. It is important to have medical supervision as some substances can have dangerous side effects. Otherwise, the symptoms of withdrawal can make a person feel ill and care from others is required. Intense cravings can push a victim of addiction to return to substance abuse without the help of a rehabilitation facility. When detoxification occurs under professional supervision in a controlled setting, a successful break away from the source of addiction is much more likely.

Detox is Only the Beginning of the Journey

Detox begins after a thorough evaluation in which recovery professionals determine what the source of your addiction is, how long it has been used, how much is typically used in a day, and what the dosage of that drug or alcohol is every time that it is used. This will make it possible to make an informed decision about the best route to take for effective detoxification and how long it will take. Eliminating harmful substances from the body may take two or three days in the best case scenario. However, it could last over a week. Addiction to drugs like benzodiazepines require a special level of care because they can cause a severe reaction if they are cut off suddenly. The process needs to be a gradual reduction day by day. Once detoxification is over, there are no longer any traces of the drug in the body. However, you have only taken the first step in recovery. Addiction leaves a mark mentally and emotionally. It changes your life and way of thinking. You are going to need intense therapy in order to break the pattern that has become a normal part of life in order to put addiction behind you.

It’s Time to Retrain Your Mind

Addiction actually changes the chemical balances in the brain until the body relies on the source of one’s addiction. While detoxification will get rid of the harmful toxins that are left behind by drugs or alcohol, it will not eliminate the desire for more of a drug of choice. This is where the support of an addiction recovery team in Florida is essential. Compassionate, skilled professionals are at the ready to assist clients in overcoming every hurdle in the recovery process. They’ll begin by providing round the clock care during the detoxification stage, ensuring that proper nutrition is provided and every effort is made to ensure the comfort of victims of addiction while withdrawal is underway. Counselors will provide independent therapy sessions to help victims of substance abuse to understand why addiction has taken control, what potential trigger factors could be, and how it is possible to make healthy choices once treatment is over.

You’re Not Alone in This Fight

Addiction is lonely. No one else understands it unless they are facing the same struggle. That’s why a part of the addiction recovery process includes group sessions with others who are battling drug or alcohol addiction as well. Everyone has the same goal. Everyone has been changed by substance abuse. Listening to others as they fight to overcome the source of their addiction is a reminder that you’re not the only one who is going through a difficult phase in life. However, it is possible to move on with a team approach with support from professionals who know how to help.

Recovery Doesn’t End When You Walk Out the Door

Once inpatient treatment has been completed, the recovery process will continue. Regular meetings with a support group can help in working through challenges and staying on track. Outpatient services are available as well to provide additional support. Professionals at your Florida rehab center are available to speak with you when there is a struggle. Sober living may be another consideration, providing a temporary location that can make the transition from addiction recovery to normal routines easier. Don’t become an island after rehabilitation recovery. Surround yourself with friends and family who are supportive.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
