Medical Detox in Orlando, FL

You don’t have to go through withdrawal alone. Our medical experts make detox as safe and comfortable as possible to prevent relapse during withdrawal.

What Is Medical Detox?

Medical detox is an important first step in addiction treatment. During a medically supervised detox, the body rids drugs and alcohol from its system, which can involve uncomfortable or dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Our medical team provides 24/7 supervision and treatment for symptoms to make detox as safe and comfortable as possible.

Is medical detox right for me?

Safely quitting drugs or alcohol may require medical detox if any of these apply. We’re here to help.

  • I’ve tried quitting by myself before, and it didn’t work
  • I keep using drugs or alcohol to prevent feeling uncomfortable withdrawal side effects.
  • I’ve been using substances for a long time or in large amounts.
  • I’m addicted to alcohol or benzodiazepines, where withdrawal symptoms can be fatal.

What To Expect in Our Medical Detox Program

Before medical detox, we assess each patient’s drug and alcohol use, physical and mental state and any co-occurring disorders to create a complete treatment plan. 

Patients at Orlando Recovery Center medically detox in quiet rooms and receive 24-hour medical support, medications to manage withdrawal symptoms as medically appropriate and nutritious meals to strengthen health.

I was in Recovery Village for about a month and a half. I absolutely loved the staff they are all very caring and easy to talk to. Stephanie (BHT) was so wonderful she was very kind and very caring. If you needed to talk she would always listen. My counselor Lindsey was also wonderful, she helped me work through so much.

Overall ORC did an exceptional job on helping me become the best version of myself as possible. From the top, to the bottom, all the staff took great care of me. I spent my 49th birthday 🎂 there on October 6th and it was the first time I was sober on my birthday in 30 years. Everyone cheered for my special day and my sobriety. Today I'm 62 days sober and I will continue to strive to be GREAT and stay sober. My NAME IS JIMMIE ROWRY AND I MATTER!!!! I would recommend ORC to anyone battling ADDICTION, it only works if you work it😎

FAQs About Medical Detox

How long is medical detox?

How long medical detox lasts depends on the substance used, withdrawal symptoms and physical health. Most patients complete medically supervised detox in six to nine days.

Can I detox at home?

Yes, 24/7 medical supervision ensures a successful drug or alcohol detox. However, medical detox is only the first step of addiction treatment; you’ll continue with additional therapy and counseling to stay on the path to recovery.

Orlando Recovery Center offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as medically appropriate. Your clinical team will determine your needs and eligibility for MAT
