First Step Medical Detox Center
First Step Medical Detox is a treatment facility that has been designed to help patients through the initial and most difficult phase of recovery. Our staff provides clients with the highest quality of care, making the step into treatment possible even for individuals and families that have lost hope.
Detoxification from drugs or alcohol can be a difficult process. We are here to make clients comfortable during detox, and most importantly, to keep them safe. Our medically managed detox provides patients with the supportive care, monitoring, and counseling they need to succeed in this important first stage of recovery. We believe it is important for individuals to practice complete abstinence after recovery, and we help them achieve a sobriety that is free from all drugs and alcohol.
First Step Medical Detox
At First Step Medical Detox, clients are welcomed into our modern facility that has a home-like atmosphere. Our intimate facility allows each patient to receive that care and attention they need. Each client is carefully assessed by our staff upon admission. Medical personnel are present at all times to ensure patient safety. As the person experiences the physical withdrawal symptoms in the first few days of recovery, our compassionate staff is attentive to all of the patient’s needs. Medication is used when necessary, but we also make use of other methods for relaxation and pain management, such as acupuncture, yoga, therapy, and counseling.
During the first few days of recovery, clients face many challenges. Detoxification can be physically painful and mentally exhausting. We believe in a holistic approach to detox, and use our different therapy methods to keep the client comfortable and motivated to continue in recovery. Patients benefit from acupuncture, massage, a living Labyrinth, and yoga, and are given the opportunity to participate in daily exercise when appropriate. Our gourmet chef prepares healthy, delicious food for our patients, designed to help individuals cleanse their body of all its toxins. The holistic approach we use helps clients work to improve all areas of their life–mind, body, and spirit–from the beginning of the treatment process.
Typical detox lasts 5-7 days, but we also treat patients longer when necessary. Because our goal is sustained recovery, we ensure each and every patient has a recovery plan in place when they leave our facility. We believe it is important to offer a continuum of care, and we help clients transition from our drug detox center to a rehab facility, where they can continue to develop the tools needed to stay sober. Our Florida detox center is designed to help clients overcome the difficult detoxification from their substance, while preparing them for the recovery ahead. We help each client work toward abstinence from all harmful substances, allowing their body to heal and function without the assistance of harmful drugs or medications.
