Florida Detox Near Delray Beach

A Crucial First Step

One of the most important steps of rehab is detoxification. This refers to the medical process of ridding the body of any toxic substances it has become dependent on. The experience will be unique to the needs of each individual patient. We are proud to boast Legacy Healing detox centers around South Florida, Ohio, and New Jersey, and we believe these can provide the pivotal first step in your recovery journey.

Why Is Detox Important?

It is excessively more difficult to respond to treatment when not in the right state of mind or body. When you become physically dependent on a substance, whether it’s alcohol or drugs, your body has learned to adapt to its presence. When the substance is removed, you can begin to experience what is known as withdrawal symptoms. The effects of these symptoms can range from physical, to mental, to emotional. It is your body attempting to readjust to a new normal at a biological and chemical level. Detox seeks to get you through this often difficult process and prepares you for the treatments to follow.

Proper withdrawal management has the potential to be one of the most crucial aspects of rehab. Symptoms commonly get out of hand, and the presence of trained medical staff is highly recommended. It is impossible to exactly predict what withdrawal will look like. Not only will withdrawal look different from person to person, but it will also be affected by the type of substance that is abused, how much of it the person uses, and whether they have quit “cold turkey.” The latter is especially discouraged, as this is what can cause the most intense bodily reactions.

Common symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • – Body tremors
  • – Fever
  • – Digestive Issues
  • – Mood swings
  • – Anxiety
  • – Hallucinations
  • – Feelings of depression
  • – Dehydration
  • – Muscle cramps
  • – Delirium
  • – Seizures

What Happens During Detoxification?

When you arrive at one of our facilities, a collection of medical assessments will be conducted to determine the most effective treatment methods. Should detox be deemed necessary, a few things can happen. Depending on the substance, our clinical staff may elect to begin tapering medications to safely bring the body back down to normal. This is done because some immediate reactions will pose more danger.


Additionally, you will be closely watched in order to look out for any adverse reactions not otherwise predicted. This is what makes a medically monitored detox far more ideal than attempting it on one’s own.

  • – Alcohol
  • – Benzodiazepines
  • – Cocaine
  • – Heroin
  • – Methamphetamines
  • – Opioids

We believe in setting each client that walks through our doors up for success. As withdrawals conclude, our treatment facilities have a variety of effective treatment programs in place that will begin to teach you how to achieve sobriety.
