Medical Detox

Addiction recovery begins with medical detox. Medications lessen your withdrawal symptoms, and around-the-clock supervision ensures you don’t relapse to drug use during this vulnerable time. Rather than struggling alone at home, surrounded by temptation, you’ll be surrounded by caring staff members who are dedicated to your health and recovery.

What to Expect


1. Evaluation

The first step of medical detox is an evaluation for the presence of drugs and alcohol in your bloodstream. You’ll also be assessed for co-occurring medical and mental health disorders. The Boca Recovery Center treatment team will use this information to guide your medical detox process and subsequent treatment plan.


2. Withdrawal Management & Stabilization

You’ll receive several detox interventions and modalities, such as withdrawal medications, supportive care like intravenous fluids, and mental health support. The goal of this stage is to:

  • Reduce distressing withdrawal symptoms
  • Improve your comfort
  • Prevent and treat any medical complications
  • Achieve medical stabilization

3. Transition Into Treatment

Medical detox is just the initial step on the continuum of addiction care. Once substances have been cleared from your system and you are stable, our treatment team will help prepare you to transition into comprehensive substance abuse treatment—whether that’s an inpatient or outpatient program.


Benefits of Medical Detox

Medical detox programs allow you to step away from your stressors and responsibilities to focus on your health and healing. It’s a compassionate, effective way to start your journey to sobriety. These are just a few of the benefits of medical detox:

  • Serious symptom management - Untreated detox symptoms can be life-threatening. Medications keep you safe.
  • Around-the-clock monitoring - If your symptoms worsen, someone is always available to help.
  • Compassionate care - Staff members are experienced professionals with years of experience in caring for people just like you.
  • Powerful follow-up plans - Detox alone can’t address your addiction triggers and relapse risks. Your medical detox team can help you transition smoothly to the next stage in the healing process.

What Patients Say

Medical Detox Treatment Process

Boca Recovery Centers uses medically proven treatment programs to help people recover from drug abuse and addiction. Our plans are safe, as the methods have been tested by experts. Here’s what we do (and do not) recommend for our patients:

Medication Management

Opioids, alcohol, benzodiazepines, and other addictive drugs change brain chemistry, making recovery difficult. Targeted medication management improves chemical imbalances, allowing you to get sober without experiencing life-threatening side effects.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Underlying mental health conditions like depression and anxiety can worsen during traditional drug detox. Assessing these issues and providing appropriate therapy can help you transition smoothly without experiencing a mental health crisis.

Whole-Person Care

Healthy meals, soothing liquids, cool rooms, and gentle touch can all help you feel calm and cared for as you move away from drugs. Exercise can help to process drugs out of your body, but if you’re not feeling up to vigorous movement, stretching or yoga might help.

Transition to Treatment

Medical detox is just the first step on a journey that leads to lifelong sobriety. As your medical detox program ends, your team will introduce your next treatment options and help you decide if inpatient or outpatient care is right for you and your recovery.

Not Recommended: Rapid Detox

Some teams use drugs to force the brain into immediate sobriety. While saving time can seem like a benefit, this approach comes with significant risks, including medical complications and relapse. We never use rapid detox tools in our clinics, as they’re just not safe.

Not Recommended: Cold-Turkey Approaches

Addictions come with stigma, and sometimes, that bias appears in treatment programs. Quitting drugs abruptly can throw your mind and body into chaos, and sometimes, the side effects are life-threatening. No one deserves punishment for addiction. We will never put your health at risk with this approach.

Frequently Asked Questions

During a medical detox program, doctors use medications and therapy to ease your body from intoxication to sobriety. This approach reduces your risk of both relapse and life-threatening reactions.

Unfortunately, there’s no shortcut to sobriety. According to experts, anesthesia-assisted ultra-rapid detox simply is not effective. The withdrawal symptoms are as severe as those you might endure with traditional detox programs. Moreover, there are grave safety concerns, and the method is not covered by insurance.

Quitting some drugs abruptly (including opioids, benzodiazepines, and alcohol) can lead to life-threatening complications. Brain cells need time to heal and function properly. A cold-turkey approach doesn’t offer that healing time.

Your medication plan depends on the drugs you’ve used. People in recovery from opioid abuse need different therapies than those who have been abusing alcohol or benzodiazepines. Your team will develop your plan based on your drug use history and goals.

Your cost will vary depending on the medications needed and your length of care. Boca Recovery Center accepts payment from most insurance programs, and if you don’t have coverage, we can work with you on payment plans.
