Addictions Our Residential Detox Program Specializes in Treating
Many people who struggle with substance abuse have mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Our detox center is staffed by professionals who understand the unique challenges faced by those living with these conditions to ensure they get help for both problems at once.

Once finished with residential detox, the next step should be an addiction treatment program that aids in a long-term recovery solution.
How Do Medical Detox Specialists Help at a Residential Detox Center?
Upon your initial intake, we will be monitoring your vital signs and mental well-being. This is performed by checking vital signs and speaking with the patient through a psychological assessment. Once it has been determined that medical detox is the best decision for your individual treatment plan, you will be administered prescription medications to begin the residential detox process.
Coastal Detox is a nationally recognized and accredited detox program. Our team of medical detox professionals has extensive training and has been performing medical detox solutions for an extended length of time. We operate an around-the-clock medical detox treatment center that is able to assist patients with any detox withdrawal symptoms that may occur.
Our team is prepared for anything and everything as it pertains to drug and alcohol detox and addiction treatment.
What Types of Withdrawal Symptoms Can I Expect?
Withdrawal symptoms will differ depending on the substance from which you are recovering. Alcohol and drugs such as heroin often require more attention during a detox program, however, it depends on how often and how long a person has used these substances.
Common withdrawal symptoms experienced during medical detox include:
- Muscle aches and body cramps
- Anxiety or nervousness
- Difficulty sleeping
- Shakes or Tremors
- Irregular heartbeat
- Digestive problems
- Extreme mood shifts
- Difficulty thinking or focusing
Due to the intense nature of some of these withdrawal symptoms, it is highly recommended that individuals do not attempt to detox at home. A residential detox center will stabilize individuals accordingly and monitor their well-being for ongoing recovery.
What is the Next Step After Residential Detox
At Coastal Detox, we recommend our clientele to attend an inpatient or residential addiction treatment program. Here is where you will work on long-term recovery through a wide variety of therapy programs. Addiction treatment therapy teaches an individual how to live a life free from substance abuse.
Residential addiction treatment programs are similar to residential detox as an individual will be surrounded by 24/7 support from addiction treatment specialists. Residential programs have the greatest rate of success in long-term recovery from substance use disorders.
Do I Need an Addiction Treatment Program Once I’m Free of Withdrawal Symptoms?
Yes, you should attend an addiction treatment program after detox. After all, you may be free from psychological symptoms of substance abuse, but psychological ones will still be there. So, while you no longer feel any drug or alcohol withdrawals, the reasons you started abusing drugs or alcohol are still present.
Detox is the first step in getting free from substance abuse. However, an addiction treatment program will help you learn to avoid addictive behaviors. Treatment and therapy programs will help you uncover what made you susceptible to addiction and how you can recognize and avoid those triggers in the future.
Benefits of a Residential Treatment Program in South Florida
- A better chance of successfully completing medical detox protocol
- An immediate/seamless transition from detox level of care to inpatient to inpatient services—which research shows greatly increases long term recovery
- Around the clock medical and clinical supervision
- A community of support from others in treatment
- No environmental triggers to drink or use drugs
- Higher treatment completion rates (which is also linked with better long-term recovery outcomes)
In some cases, clients are unable to attend a residential treatment program. There are still many wonderful outpatient treatment options available.
Outpatient treatment is an excellent option for people who cannot be absent from work or home life for an extended period of time. This form of addiction treatment offers flexibility in therapy options and allows those enrolled to sleep at home.
Outpatient treatment is generally less expensive than residential treatment, however, your first priority should be what’s best for your recovery plan. In many cases, insurance will cover your treatment.
What Types of Therapies are Available in an Addiction Treatment Program?
Depending on where you attend a residential treatment program, therapy options should include some of the following options:
One-on-one counseling allows the patient to talk solely with their therapist about things they may not feel comfortable sharing among others. This helps patients to process the emotional side of past situations that may have led them to addiction.
Group counseling takes place in a group meeting setting. Primarily verbal to allow patients to interact with one another and share stories of their recoveries and experiences while using. This gives the patient support from people going through similar situations.
This type of therapy focuses on understanding how the traumatic events in an addict’s life impacted their addiction. After this type of therapy, a patient should be able to understand their emotional and behavioral responses to certain situations.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT encourages patients to change their destructive patterns of behavior. It is one of the most successful forms of therapy and allows patients to develop problem-solving skills.
It teaches patients about the emotional and environmental triggers that can cause an addict to relapse. To prevent them from winding up on the same path they were before, they learn what and who to avoid relapse.
This is similar to CBT this form of therapy helps motivate patients to modify behaviors. Therapists encourage patients to recognize their worth and steer clear of behaviors that lead to substance abuse.
These groups give patients a creative or physical outlet to focus on besides alcohol or drugs. For instance, they could discover a love for painting, rock climbing, or playing guitar. These can also be performed in group settings. This enables people to connect with other individuals going through the same things they are.
In these programs, family members and the patient can learn a better way to cope with recovery. All parties can share thoughts and feelings on the subject. The program helps to bring family members closer together. This shows the recovering addict they have a long-lasting support system after rehab completion.
As part of an accredited residential treatment program, each client will find a wide array of treatment therapies. Licensed clinicians present therapy approaches that can help each client learn how to live a healthy, fulfilling, sober life.
Learning How to Recognizing Addiction
Addiction typically isn’t a purposeful thing. A simple choice to “try something once” can end up becoming a constant subconscious decision to continuously use. An individual may become addicted to a substance, whether it is drugs, alcohol, or both. Once this occurs, the person might deny that it has even happened.
Often, people who abuse alcohol or drugs will convince themselves that they can stop their use at any point. They may even try to convince others who confront them about the situation of the same. In reality, the substance has taken over control of their life. As a result, they have no concept of life without drugs or alcohol.
Recognizing that addiction has occurred is a key first step to choosing how to solve the problem. Our team of medical professionals here at Coastal can then help you start your addiction treatment in Florida.
