At South Florida Detox we are prepared to help you detox from a variety of drugs, including alcohol, opiates (including Oxycodone, Heroin and Methadone) Benzodiazepines (including Xanax, Ativan and Valium), the so-called "Club Drugs," (including Ecstasy and GHB) and others. Each drug classification has its own procedures, and its own risks.
Alcohol Detox When a heavy drinker stops consuming alcohol, their body goes into withdrawal. Without proper management, the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal may include: nausea, vomiting, headaches, body aches, hot and cold flashes, rapid pulse, anxiety, sleep disturbances, delirium tremens (DTs) and even seizures.We are committed to making this process safe and comfortable, minimizing the pain, discomfort and danger. While some programs offer an out-patient approach to alcohol detox, there is a much lower drop-out rate in full-time programs. Plus, we are able to offer 24-hour care to help ensure your comfort and safety.
Opiates Detox Opiates are drugs commonly used for pain management and relief. Here are some of the most common drugs in this category: OxyContin, Oxycodone, Vicodin, Heroin, Methadone, Codeine, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Darvocet, Percocet and Percodan.
When someone stops taking opiates, withdrawal begins immediately and causes symptoms of extreme illness, which can last for two weeks or more. Possible symptoms include: sweats, shakes, nausea, cramping, migraine, delirium and others. Because of its intensity and inherent risk, in order to be done safely, opiate detox should take place in a hospital setting, supervised by licensed medical professionals.
Benzodiazepine Detox Benzodiazepines are primarily prescribed as anti-anxiety and insomnia medication. Some of the most common drugs in this category are: Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Librium and Restoril.
When someone stops taking Benzodiazepine, withdrawal begins immediately and can be severe. Possible side effects can include: nausea, cramping, migraine, fever, sweating and seizures. Because of its intensity and inherent risk, in order to be done safely, medication detox should take place in a hospital setting, supervised by licensed medical professionals.
