Orlando drug and alcohol detox treatment center

When faced with addiction and the determination to join a rehab center, treatment location may not be the first consideration that springs to mind, though it is a critical element. Some prospective drug treatment patients will seek a local treatment facility while others, for a host of different reasons, may decide to travel to a different city or state. Orlando is an attractive option for locals and out-of-staters in need of drug treatment at any time of year; the average temperature high ranges from 71 degrees in January to 92 degrees in July, making Orlando one of the most temperate states in the nation.

At The Recovery Village, our commitment to offering exceptionally effective drug treatment services has earned us a stellar reputation in the professional community of rehab service providers. Our patients come from Florida and beyond for our expert services. While we are not the only drug and alcohol treatment center near Orlando, we are the only facility that keeps our detox program doors open 24/7, including providing a chauffeur-driven pickup service as needed. We understand that addiction can strike at any time, and so too can the decision to detox. For this reason, we make access a priority and are here, around the clock, for new admissions as well as for our existing patients.

What to expect in detox

As the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) defines it, detox is the process by which the body eliminates substances on which it has formed a dependency. Although withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, and even dangerous in some cases, they are in effect the signs that the body is adjusting to the absence of these substances. NIDA accurately points out that detox alone is not an effective treatment plan, but it is an indispensable part of a multilayered recovery plan. When it comes to treating addiction, there are no quick fixes.

The first step in the detox process is patient intake. It is important to understand that detox is not a “one size fits all” process. Each patient presents with a different drug abuse history, type of drug(s) abused, and health factors, such as age and other possible co-occurring disorders. Intake helps drug treatment counselors and medical professionals to build a tailored recovery program for each individual patient. As PsychCentral discusses, common medications used in detox treatment are as follows:

  • Benzodiazepines help treat withdrawal from methamphetamines and cocaine and curtail general symptoms, such as tremors, sweating, severe nausea, and physical pain.
  • Methadone is used in heroin addiction treatment.
  • Revia is used for intensive detox from heroin and other opiates (involves sedation of the patient).
  • Currently, there are no medications that specifically treat methamphetamine or cocaine withdrawal.

While using medications to assist the detoxification process may be seen as substituting one drug for another, medication therapy has been proven effective. It is critical to provide recovering substance abusers with a comfortable detox process to counteract the potential for relapse. In addition to medications, the structured environment of a detox program can be instrumental to a successful detox experience. While drug abuse can cause a person to spiral out of control, detox followed by a specialized recovery plan can provide the solid foundation one needs and pave the way to abstinence and well-being.
