Alcohol withdrawal and detox is well known in the medical community to be very dangerous, uncomfortable and even potentially deadly, especially if attempted without medical treatment. Specialized medical treatments have been developed for safe and comfortable detoxification off of alcohol that can be done on an outpatient basis.
Appointments for our Delray Beach alcohol detox program are available at convenient times both before and after common working hours, so patients can undergo outpatient alcohol detox without missing work. The downtown Delray Beach location is convenient and very easily accessed by patients living in both Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
We follow a slower and more methodical detox pace that follows the body’s natural physiology, which is much safer and effective than a rushed 5 to 7 day alcohol detox. Especially with alcohol detox, a more gently paced detox process helps minimize if not eliminate the brain damage that would be expected from a faster detox lasting less than 7-10 days.
This is best managed with a careful choice of medications given over a sufficiently long period of time. Physical comfort equates to neurologic safety when it comes to alcohol detox. Alcohol detox post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS) are managed promptly and effectively, which further improves comfort and reduces relapse rates. This is in sharp contrast to inpatient detox facilities, where patients have already been discharged before post-acute withdrawal symptoms develop, leaving them highly vulnerable to relapse so early in their recovery.
Many individuals that had just completed an inpatient alcohol detox come to the Delray Center due to the debilitating post-acute withdrawal symptoms they are still experiencing. Symptoms such as tremor, night sweats, loss of appetite, fatigue, insomnia, nausea, and muscle spasms are directly screened for and managed effectively.
Alcohol detox is not safely completed until all of the withdrawal and post-acute withdrawal symptoms are fully resolved, and we are here to help you get to this final step of recovery.
