Any comprehensive and effective alcohol or drug treatment experience must include detoxification or (detox). Detox helps people manage their withdrawal symptoms, so they’re able to abstain from alcohol or drugs long enough to enter and navigate behavioral rehab. It’s critically important that detox be administered by an experienced and qualified medical team (doctors and nurses) to help you alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms and get the help you need in the event of a medical emergency.
Rapid or self-detox is never advisable, as it can not only need to relapse; but also severe long-term health risks. Medical detox usually lasts around three days to a week, depending upon the scope of withdrawal symptoms and dependency.
What Happens during Medical Detox?
During medical detox and withdrawal management, you or your loved one will be consistently monitored by medical professionals to get the best relief possible for your withdrawal symptoms, which often include but are not limited to:
- Fever and Flu-Like Symptoms
- Aches and Pains
- Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea
- Excessive Sweating
- Shaking and Tremors
- Headaches and Migraines
- Confusion and Disorientation
Medical detox includes a comprehensive patient intake form that documents all of your medical issues that can help inform your care, as opposed to taking risks by trying to weather the storm on your own at home with nobody to monitor your symptoms.

Florida Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers
Florida has an infamous and unfortunate legacy when it comes to substance use and addiction. At one time, it was ground zero for “pill mills” (pain management clinics that wrote opioid prescriptions for profit) and is still battling substance use on a variety of fronts. Cocaine continues to be a problem in Miami while prescription painkiller abuse still dominates many areas of the state, from Fort Myers to Fort Lauderdale to Fort Walton Beach. Florida ranks second in the nation for the highest rates of overdose deaths, 7,500 overdose deaths in Florida in 2020 compared to just over 5,500 the year before. If you or your loved one are among the thousands in Florida that need help for addiction, there are many resources available to you.
Substance Abuse Treatment Resources in Florida
In response to the explosion of prescription and illicit drug abuse in the state, Florida has given birth to hundreds of treatment facilities, but not all treatment centers will offer the same services or levels of care. Some will offer inpatient treatment and onsite medical detoxification (detox); others will simply offer outpatient counseling and rehab and offsite coordination with detox. The state also offers many treatment facilities that offer Medicare and Medicaid for patients of advanced age or limited financial means. Florida has also become a preferred recovery destination because of the forgiving climate all year round.
