Before patients enter our Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) or Partial Hospitalization Treatment (PHP), some may require an in-house drug or alcohol detox.
The detoxification process cleanses the body of drugs and alcohol and is the first step in recovering from substance and/or alcohol abuse disorder.
Our medically supervised detox helps patients wean themselves off a drug or alcohol. This process cleanses the bloodstream of the substances, assisting the patient in feeling normal again. We provide a full medical detox, which means patients undergo comprehensive medical and psychological care.
Most major insurance companies typically cover a portion of your detox stay.
Because detoxification is different between drug and alcohol users, our detox programs are customized to treat each type of addiction.
During this period, patients may experience withdrawal symptoms, which are the body’s natural adverse reaction to battling the loss of something it has become accustomed to.
Withdrawal symptoms are similar across drug and alcohol detox and include abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. But alcohol detox is unique due to patients experiencing “DTs,” or delirium tremens, which are severe hallucinations.
The severity of withdrawal symptoms is why we designed our detox centers to provide as much emphasis as comfort and luxury as possible.
Our detox centers provide a maximum of two patients in each room. Each person has their own TVs, and multiple comfort amenities are available, including a holistic spa, massage and salon services, and movie theater access.
At DayBreak Treatment Solutions, we design customized programs for each person’s situation, which helps streamline positive results. The other part of the equation is making that detox process as comfortable as possible, which has prompted us to emphasize luxury for our patients.
The more comfortable a patient, the more successful the recovery, and, ultimately, the more quickly they can return to a healthy everyday life.
