The Average Cost Of A South Florida Detox Program

Detox is the first and most important step in the recovery body. Physiological addiction is like a biochemical equation. The repeated substance use causes changes in the body’s regular internal state, which is called homeostasis. When your body does not receive the addictive substance, your body’s homeostasis is disrupted. As you may already know, your body reacts to this disruption by manifesting withdrawal symptoms (e.g. tremors, body aches, diarrhea, vomiting, anxiety, etc.). Withdrawal can be excruciating and even fatal if it is not gone through under proper medical supervision. Detox centers are the most common places to undergo withdrawal. South Florida detox programs are your best best because the staff is highly-experienced and well-trained in taking both a medical and holistic approach to treating withdrawal. Many people assume that quality comes at a price; therefore, the cost of a South Florida detox program may make you cringe. The average cost of an outpatient South Florida detox program is 300 to 800 dollars per day.

A variety of factors go into determining the exact cost of a South Florida Detox program:

  • Outpatient Vs. Inpatient
    Whether the program is outpatient or inpatient makes a huge difference in the cost of the program. An outpatient program consists of the patients going to see the medical staff at the facility and them going home to take the prescribed medications and follow other instructions. The medical staff may come to the patient’s home to assess and monitor them. The total average cost of outpatient detox is 1,000 to 2,000 dollars. On the other hand, the total cost of inpatient detox can cost up to several thousand dollars due to the fact that the patients stay overnight at thee facility for around the clock monitoring, meals, and other amenities.
  • Length of Stay
    The exact length of detox depends on each individual. Your age, gender, size, medical history, type of addiction, severity of addiction, and the length of time that you were addicted are factors that determine the length of your detox. Detox can range from several days to two weeks.
  • Amenities
    The more amenities a detox center has, the more money the program will cost. Basic detox centers will be the cheapest because they only offer medical treatment, a bed to sleep on, and food to eat. Detox centers that provide holistic, cutting edge treatments, comfortable living quarters, and meals that are prepared by a chef and nutritionist will cost more.
  • Your Insurance
    If you have health insurance, you should definitely try to use it to fund your detox. Most health insurance companies recognize addiction as a disease; therefore, they cover at least part of the cost. Many detox centers will perform insurance verification for you. You can also contact your health insurance company to inquire about the exact coverage you can receive for addiction treatment.

What to Expect at a South Florida Detox Program

Fear of the unknown hinders may be hindering you from receiving the addiction help that you need. You may have heard stories about detox from your “friends” who are in active addiction or seen detox depicted in movies. If you have heard negative stories about or seen scary depictions of detox, chances are those detox centers were not South Florida detox programs. South Florida detox programs ensure your maximum level of comfort.

Upon your arrival at a South Florida detox program, you will be greeted by a friendly admissions counselor. He or she will take your basic information and psychosocial history. You will then be assessed by a medical team. They will take your vitals, go over your medical history, run some more tests, and draw up a preliminary treatment plan.

If you are staying in an inpatient detox center, you will be escorted to your room. Your room will be almost identical to your bedroom at home. You will have a clean, comfortable bed, fluffy pillow, nightstand, and window that will provide a stunning view of the sunshine state. The walls will be light colors that will provide a calm feeling. You may share a room with one other person. Your bathroom will be spotless. The medical professionals will monitor you around the clock. You may be woken up throughout the night to be monitored.

During your stay, you will eat nutritious, delicious food that is prepared by a chef and nutritionist. Since the primary focus of detox is to address the physiological component of your addiction, you will not be constantly attending counseling sessions and group therapy sessions. You may meet with a counselor or social worker to discuss your feelings about getting into recovery and your post-detox plan. You may also attend some 12-Step Meetings or group therapy sessions. In addition to medical treatment, you will also be treated with a variety of cutting-edge holistic treatments. These cutting-edge treatment include, but are not limited to, biosound therapy, yoga/meditation, acupuncture, cold laser therapy, and far infrared sauna.

Following detox, you should definitely have a rehabilitation plan to address the psychological component of your addiction. This can include inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, recovery programs, etc. Remember that detox is only the beginning of the road to recovery. Psychological healing is a much more extensive and complex process, but it is necessary for full recovery.
