Detox centers are your first step in addressing your substance dependency and abuse. Whether you abused alcohol, opiates, were addicted to Xanax or other drugs, your body will experience physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. Althought at CWC we do not provide detox services, we are more than happy to provide you with a list of ethical and highly qualified options.

Detox for Alcohol and Drug Addictions

Alcohol and drug withdrawal can be intense and even deadly. With our careful monitoring and supervised medication management, detox centers focus on preventing the unpleasant and potentially fatal consequences that result from suddenly stopping alcohol and drug use. Medical detox also helps prevent addicts from relapsing – which often happens when addicts try to detox on their own.

Why People Develop Addictions

Over time, substance abusers develop a tolerance to alcohol and drugs. As tolerance to a drug increases, they must use more to feel its pleasurable effects. At Comprehensive Wellness Centers, we understand the depths of addiction and the challenges that lie ahead for someone seeking lifelong recovery. The staff at our Florida drug and alcohol rehab is made up of dedicated and motivated individuals who have a deep passion for helping addicts recover.

What Happens During Alcohol and Drug Withdrawals?

Drug and alcohol withdrawal is often a harrowing experience for addicts. Depending on the substance, the frequency and duration you have taken substances and other factors, you can experience the following withdrawal symptoms:

  • Tremors or Shakes
  • Sweating
  • Shivering
  • Anxiety
  • Slow Movements and Thoughts
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Seizures and Hallucinations

While the detoxification process can be unpleasant, it is a crucial step toward long-term sobriety. After detoxification, the staff at our holistic drug treatment center implements a program that will help monitor and support the body’s various processes as it rids itself of the drug, and continue to manage any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. To further decrease the chance of relapse, Comprehensive Wellness Centers may include medically assisted treatments with medications such as Vivitrol. Vivitrol and other medications will help you fight the physical and mental signs of craving that can increase your risk of using substances.
