Medical Detox From Drugs & Alcohol
Your recovery is our mission.
Your recovery is our mission.
Medical detox is the first step in overcoming your struggle with substance abuse. During medical detox, we offer personalized comfort. Whether you want solitude, someone by your side, or simply the assurance of medical monitoring, your wish is our command.
During medical detox, you are admitted to a treatment facility. There, you receive around-the-clock medical care to manage any withdrawal symptoms that arise. This helps your body slowly remove a substance from your systems in the most comfortable and well-managed way possible.
Medical drug detox can be helpful when withdrawal symptoms could interfere with successfully ending substance use. By undergoing detox under medical supervision, withdrawal symptoms can be managed and controlled so you can avoid an early relapse and have a better chance at long-term recovery.
After admission, you’ll receive a specialized treatment plan based on your initial assessment. Treatment can consist of:
Detox can last different lengths of time, depending on your personal withdrawal symptoms. The detox process is highly individualized, with some people needing a shorter detox duration while other people need a longer duration.
The duration of detox can also vary based on the substance. For example, the average length of an inpatient alcohol detox is two to eight days. In contrast, the average length of a detox taper of the opioid buprenorphine ranges from 0–120 days.
Although you may be able to safely detox from some substances at home, others may require medically assisted detox to control withdrawal symptoms. We take a progressive approach to detox, promoting your safety and comfort above all.
Our physician-prescribed detox programs include:
Our detox programs are fully licensed and accredited at Orlando Recovery Center Drug and Alcohol Rehab. We offer a continuum of care no matter where you are in the detox process and have rehab programs to help keep your recovery on track after detox. Caring and knowledgeable staff lead you through detox in a peaceful setting to help you wean off substance use in the easiest way possible.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a cornerstone of medical care during opioid detox. Avoiding opioid withdrawal symptoms like nausea, muscle pain and agitation is important to helping you stay on track with detox. Our facility can prescribe both methadone and buprenorphine-based therapies for MAT. This strategy helps wean you off opioids while minimizing withdrawal symptoms.
Orlando Recovery Center is part of a full continuum of care. From the time of admission, you’ll have access to a system of integrated recovery services that include:
