If you’re suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, welcome home to a place that helps stop the hurting. We feel your pain – because we treat people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that have already been where you’re sitting right now.
Although you can’t wish away withdrawal discomfort, we’d like to offer you safe, medically supervised, around-the-clock drug and alcohol detox treatment options. We’ll help you overcome your pain quickly and provide you with the information you need to better understand post-acute withdrawal syndrome and long-term recovery.
Detoxing Solo Is Not an Option
During the detox process, the body and brain release the poisons from substance abuse, embedded at the cellular level. As transformation begins, internal systems and brain function adjust and readjust continually, in response to these chemical changes, moving closer to reaching healthy balance.
Patients feel the shift during detox through withdrawal symptoms. These can be moderate to severe, and last for a few days to a few weeks, depending on the substance and length of time used.
What you may not know is that three to seven days in detox may not be enough. Here’s why.
More than a Bump in the Road to Recovery – The Roadmap to Get There
There’s a big difference between just getting through detox and living in recovery. Maybe this is your first time considering sobriety. Maybe you’ve done detox before and are amid a relapse.
If you haven’t gone through our exclusive, 15-day detox and stabilization program to help minimize post-acute withdrawal syndrome, known as PAWS, please consider this invaluable program. It’s insurance-friendly too.
What Is PAWS?
Recovery is a lengthy process. Although detox provides the kick-start needed, patients can experience what is known as PAWS, or post-acute withdrawal syndrome, after the initial week of detox, up to two years after. In fact, it can trigger relapse. This is why you need our detox and stabilization program to heal and grow stronger, should PAWS come about.
During withdrawal, you’ll fight a few of the following symptoms:
- Profuse sweating
- Flu-like symptoms
- Muscle cramps
*24-hour monitoring and management of medical care helps with these more severe withdrawal symptoms.
Other Health Concerns Can Arise During Drug or Alcohol Detox
Unanticipated health issues or other underlying conditions, mental and physical, may become evident due to the stress that the body experiences during detox. One such common issue is dual diagnosis, which can manifest as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorders.
What to Expect from Our Detox and Stabilization Program
From the moment you come to the TTC Care drug and alcohol detox center near West Palm Beach, Florida, you’ll meet with a triage registered nurse who will ease you into the program through a gentle tapering off drugs or alcohol. From there, here’s what you can expect from our 10-to-15-day detox and stabilization program:

Proper treatment for substance abuse goes well beyond the initial phase of detox. No one person is the same. How the toxins from drugs or alcohol intake affect each patient plays a large part in the type of treatment needed. Because addiction lives in the root cause for the disease, effective detox treatment must include the emotional and spiritual aspects of imbalance.
Detox Alone Isn’t Enough. We Want You to Stay
Once you decide to let go of addiction and move toward a better life, it takes time and a well-thought-out treatment plan to boost your chances for long-term wellness and minimize your risk of relapse.
But how can you recover when most detox facilities keep you in bed for the first 48 hours? You’re left with only a few days to find the reasons behind the addiction, assess other health care needs, and learn the life skills needed to support sobriety. This is not our idea of real recovery. Don’t settle for less.
Success rates for sobriety increase with medically supervised detox and long-term treatment. Various studies show parallels between detox treatment and rates of relapse.
|Substance Used||Length of Treatment||Research Origin||Rate of Relapse|
|Heroin||1 week||National Institutes of Health||65%|
|Cocaine||1 year or less||Texas Christian University||24%|
|Crystal Meth**||90 days or less||Australian National University||88%|
|Alcohol||Varied||National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism||90%|
**Note that 48 percent of those in the crystal meth study who underwent detox with drug rehab were still sober after 90 days.
We can help you through detox effectively, and move forward to a brand new life in recovery.
