Detoxification is the early process of slowly cleansing the patient’s body of addictive substances. The patient will endure withdrawal symptoms before moving forward to the next stage of healing.
Seeking professional addiction treatment is important for a steady recovery process. Medically monitored detox is the preferred method to treat withdrawal symptoms, as trained medical staff are determined to work within the means of your condition. Quitting cold turkey can have the opposite effect towards recovery, depending on the substance used and frequency of use.
Affordable treatment options are available, with most insurance companies willing to make an effort. For example, intensive outpatient treatment programs offer the flexibility of an outpatient treatment but the structure of inpatient treatment residence.
Taking the first steps towards addiction recovery can be challenging for those who are struggling. The fight against compulsive behaviors and conditions does not have to be paid in blood. Trauma and other life events play a large role in the development of mental and substance use disorders. Learn how we can help you here at our Florida drug detox center.
Holistic detox is the process of cleansing the body through improved eating habits and lifestyle changes. The central idea of holistic detox revolves around the idea that our bodies release toxins into our bloodstreams and waste builds up. These toxins can cause discomfort, pain, and other physical changes that slow down our systems.
Although medical professionals recommend the benefits of holistic detox, it’s not meant to be a perfect tool to combat the disease of addiction. Holistic detox can’t improve overall liver health but can provide certain health benefits.
Many of the aspects of holistic detox are present in the life after recovery model of exercise and mindfulness. The best approach is to:
Consuming fruits such as pineapples, kale, ginger, and lemon may have beneficial effects on the digestive system. A recommended practice of holistic detox is to attack it slowly for your body to accept these changes. Those who participate in holistic detox often describe changes such as:
Addiction does not see what socioeconomic background or creed you come from, the grip can be lethal and anywhere. An executive program is tailored for those with a great realm of responsibilities (such as running a company) and struggling with addiction. Individuals who seek an executive program may not feel as though they have the time to dedicate to an inpatient treatment program. The idea of intensive treatment in their current state can bring about increased complications to their work or reputation.
That’s where executive program rehabs come in as a flexible option for those struggling with addiction. Within a reputable executive program, a patient can anticipate:
The program is designed to provide freedom to those who seek addiction treatment but yearn to come home to their families and work at the end of the day. According to SAMHSA, roughly 2% of people who seek help for addiction sought help. The program aims to benefit the client’s privacy and provide amenities to tailor to those needs.
Generally speaking, executive programs will typically offer the same therapies and practices of conventional addiction treatment programs, whether inpatient or outpatient. A portion of these programs are covered by insurance programs but they are typically for more affluent patients. The exclusivity of these programs might not be suited for those who can’t afford it, with maximum bed space up to 25.
Although, it’s important to research the facility you choose to work with to ensure they provide the best service for your condition (Ex. opioid use treatment). Chances are detox will be the first step in the process to encourage a clean state for recovery.
The recovery management program is designed to measure the progress of a patient’s recovery after they have completed their treatment at a facility. In a continuum of care, recovery management programs offer the long-term guidance of treatment. Maintaining abstinence and practicing healthy coping mechanisms, generally, after the first year of recovery, is the target for recovery management programs.
A patient can expect to work on their relapse prevention plan and practice situations where they might be exposed to triggers to use again. Relapse is just on the horizon but recovery management is meant to prevent that outcome through daily habits and mindful interactions. Keeping a positive outlook towards growth is one of the key factors in recovery, as there will certainly be good and bad days.
A relapse takes on three stages; mental, emotional, and physical. A relapse prevention plan serves as a document to track and monitor your recovery progress through intervention. By acknowledging reactive behaviors and intense feelings, the person has the opportunity to be aware of their actions. No one knows your behaviors better than you, so it can serve as a productive method to deal with relapse. Preventing you from falling back on old, unhealthy habits is the goal for these plans. A relapse prevention plan might include:
Assessing your history with addictive substances is a great way to start. Certain patterns might come about to protect you from uncertainty and negative feelings. Brainstorming a list of triggers and scenarios could help pinpoint what makes you tick. Developing a specific action plan would help you navigate through the changes and unexpected events that come along. It’s vital to have others aware of your plan to better understand your needs.
You were recently diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and depression. Additionally, you’ve been struggling with prescription opioid addiction for the past 4 years. Now is the time to confront these disorders as a dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder is best described as a mental health disorder and substance use disorder affecting the person.
Dual diagnosis treatment was not originally practiced, like mental health and substance use treatment was treated separately. It’s become more apparent that patients often struggle with both substance use and mental health disorders. Dual diagnoses produce some of the same risk factors of mental health and substance use disorders since both can create conditions in one another. Effective treatment begins after the individual stops the use of substances. Behavioral therapy and medication are great available options for those combating a dual diagnosis.
When it comes to seeking treatment for addiction, there are many options to consider. These include residential and outpatient programs, which can be a part of your recovery journey after you finish detoxing.
While we do not offer residential treatment here at Coastal Detox, we recognize the importance of making an informed decision when it comes to your recovery. Residential treatment is best described as receiving behavioral programs in a private residence with 24-hour care.
For example, the residents can take the form of a home with a clinic on-site for medical treatment. If you’re suffering from clinical depression or substance use disorders, residential treatment might offer a structured and trigger-free environment for you. The support from the community within can be quite enriching, as everyone will be on the same but nuanced journey. This model of recovery is suited for those with needs that require more extensive care. The cost of residential treatment will reflect that.
The length of stay at a residential treatment facility might range from 90, 120, and 180 days.
A benefit of residential treatment is the community of support and how it eliminates potential risk factors. Personal development is the main focus for the patient, as they navigate a new set of principles to practice on a daily basis. The 12-Step Program is commonly used in these treatment programs as a guiding principle but each facility has its perspective.
Outpatient treatment is the alternative to inpatient treatment programs. Outpatient detox and treatment offer the benefit of discreteness in their non-invasive approach to rehab and recovery. These treatment programs are better suited for those whose recovery journey doesn’t require intensive care. If you’ve withstood the test of detox, you could find yourself back at work and at home to tackle the next steps of recovery. Outpatient treatment might not be as effective for those with co-occurring disorders, so a patient would need more specialized care.
Despite the differences of each facility, outpatient treatment programs will offer a majority of the same practices you’d find at a residential treatment facility. The patient will often have the benefit of using their knowledge practically by engaging in the world. Outpatient treatment programs tend to be more affordable since the cost of living is directly the responsibility of the patient. The patient can expect to learn healthy coping skills and education about their disorders to better equip themselves. Individual and group therapy sessions are available to aid those in the recovery process.

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
