Opiate Addiction

Detoxing From Opiates

For many people addicted to opiates, treatment begins with inpatient detoxification (or detox). Inpatient detox is a medically managed process usually lasting from 3 – 10 days, depending on the person and the substances involved.

Successful Detox is the first and critical step towards recovery.

Trying to stop “cold turkey” is not advised. Besides pain and discomfort, withdrawal symptoms can be severe and life threatening. This is not the time to go at it alone.

Our Opiate Detox Referral Program provides exceptional around-the-clock care by an expert team of physicians, nurses, counselors, and technicians.

Opiates can be illegal drugs such as heroin, or legal and prescribed drugs such as Hydrocodone or Vicodin. The detox process is the same, regardless of the legality of the opiate.

The goal of detox is to rid and cleanse the body of all toxic substances, including other drugs and alcohol that often go along with opiate addiction. No doubt, detox is not fun. However, at Q Health we surround you with help and support. That includes medication to lessen the pangs of withdrawal, ease pain and discomfort, and promote rest and sleep.

Detox is the first step. Following detox, we recommend continuing treatment. Our clients attend treatment 3 – 5 days per week and live in clean, attractive sober houses with caring staff who are there for you 24/7.

Our Q Wellness Model provides an evidence-based tailored treatment plan where clients participate in individual, group, and family therapies. Every client has access to our entire team of physicians, psychiatrists, nutritionists, fitness instructors, chiropractors, and massage therapists.

Our goal is to partner with you, understand your needs and wants, and create a treatment program that not only keeps you sober but gives you the skills and confidence for long-term success. Contact our compassionate staff today for more information about our Recovery Center West Palm Beach.
