Prescription Drug Detox

Prescription drug misuse and addiction have been an ongoing problem in the U.S. for decades. Opioids, stimulants, and depressants (i.e., tranquilizers) are the three main types of prescription medications that are prone to misuse. But no matter the type, the first step to recovery is clearing your system of the substance in a process known as detox.

Once an individual has become dependent on a substance, the body often goes through withdrawal. The symptoms of prescription drug withdrawal vary depending on the type of drug you take. Symptoms of prescription drug withdrawal can vary from mild to life-threatening. So it’s important to detox under medical supervision. Detox at Immersion Recovery Center helps to ensure the individual is as safe and as comfortable as possible during the withdrawal period.

Alcohol Detox

It can be tremendously challenging to come to terms with an alcohol use disorder. Our alcohol detox program in FL enables you to undergo a safe, pain-free alcohol withdrawal while preparing for the next step on your journey of addiction recovery. To learn more about our alcohol rehab program or to begin your journey of healing, contact us today.

The symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal vary according to a host of factors, but they often include:

  • Severe headaches
  • Body tremors/uncontrollable shaking
  • Severe stomach cramping
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia and other sleep-related issues
  • Profuse sweating/night sweats
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Seizures
  • Disorientation and confusion
  • Hallucinations (often associated with delirium tremens)
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depressed mood/suicidal ideation

Opioid Detox

When your body is exposed to any chemical substance, it adapts to its presence over time. Once your body, brain, and central nervous system become accustomed to opioids, stopping or dramatically reducing use without medical supervision and treatment can lead to difficult withdrawal symptoms. The physical symptoms coupled with intense psychological cravings often lead an individual to resume use before the detox process is complete. With assistance from a licensed and accredited addiction rehab such as Immersion Recovery Center, you can undergo a safe detox, continue with comprehensive rehabilitation and aftercare, and ultimately return to independent living with the coping and life skills necessary to thrive in recovery. 

Early symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle aches
  • Watery eyes
  • Insomnia
  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • Yawning

Later symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Diarrhea
  • Dilated pupils
  • Goosebumps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Stimulant Detox

Stimulants affect the central nervous system by increasing neurotransmitter activity inside the brain. With heavy or ongoing use, your body comes to rely on stimulants to control cognitive function and focus. If you stop using stimulants, you can experience uncomfortable physical and psychological symptoms. A quality drug detox program, like that offered by Immersion Recovery Center, will help you manage withdrawal symptoms and keep you comfortable as your body rids itself of toxins. 

Common stimulant withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Jitters
  • Anxiety
  • Chills
  • Dehydration
  • Dulled senses
  • Slowed speech
  • Loss of interest
  • Slowed movements
  • Slow heart rate
  • Irritability
  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Increased appetite
  • Impaired memory
  • Weight loss or gaunt appearance
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Body aches
  • Drug cravings

The caring professionals at our FL detox and rehab center near Boynton Beach, FL, will effectively treat symptoms associated with stimulant withdrawal. If you or someone you love has been using an illicit stimulant such as methamphetamine or cocaine or a prescription stimulant such as Adderall or Ritalin, we can help. 

Benzodiazepine Detox

Benzodiazepines (benzos) are prescription tranquilizers usually used to treat anxiety-related disorders and persistent sleep issues such as insomnia. Even when taken as prescribed by a licensed medical professional, benzodiazepines have a high potential for misuse. 

Both physical and psychological symptoms related to misuse can be severe when left untreated, and certain physical withdrawal symptoms can prove life-threatening in the case of severe benzo use disorders. 

Symptoms commonly associated with benzodiazepine withdrawal include:

  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Increased symptoms of anxiety, including panic attacks
  • Increased agitation and irritability
  • Hand tremors
  • Nausea, vomiting, and dry retching
  • Profuse sweating/night sweats
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Heart palpitations
  • Perception changes
  • Muscular and joint pain and stiffness

In more severe cases of benzo withdrawal, serious health-related complications such as seizures are possible, and incidences of psychosis have been reported. 

One of the most effective ways to prevent serious withdrawal symptoms is to seek medical guidance and slowly taper off of the benzodiazepine rather than attempting to quit “cold turkey.” At Immersion Recovery Center, we conduct an in-depth assessment when you are admitted to determine which detox methods best suit your unique case. 

Synthetic Drug Detox

Synthetic drugs mimic the effects of other substances such as marijuana and cocaine, but they’re more addictive and very unpredictable. They cause intense withdrawal symptoms that should be safely managed in a formal detox program that offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Psychosis
  • Tremors
  • Chest pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Heart palpitations
  • Coma
  • Dehydration
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Seizures
  • Heart attack
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chills/hot flashes
  • Numbness
  • Insomnia
  • Paranoia
  • Sweating
  • Disorientation
  • Stroke

Our Levels of Care for Substance Use Recovery

Maintaining sobriety is a life-long process that requires different types of care at different stages. At Immersion Recovery Center, we work with you to build a solid foundation for continued success in recovery, and we offer several levels of care in a three-phase approach, including:

Phase 1

  • Medical detox. In medical detox, professionals keep you safe and as comfortable as possible during withdrawal.
  • Residential inpatient treatment. This is the most intensive treatment option, often lasting 30 to 90 days, depending on your needs. 

Phase 2

  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP). This level of care is a step down from inpatient treatment and includes full days of intensive therapeutic care (usually seven days a week) with the freedom to return home in the evenings. 

Phase 3

  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP). Our intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP) provides the flexibility that allows you to go to work, attend school, and engage in your day-to-day life. During IOP, you can live at home or in sober living while simultaneously participating in our treatment program. 
  • Sober living. The time following residential inpatient treatment can be one of the most challenging phases of your recovery journey. After leaving that protective world, people often face temptation, difficult relationships, triggering situations, life responsibilities, and the struggle of cleaning up your past. Sober living is a residential program that provides a stable environment where you can practice the skills you learned as an inpatient with the support of your peers. A combination of sober living and intensive outpatient treatment can help you maintain your recovery while adjusting to a new normal of daily life.
  • Aftercare. Addiction is a chronic disease that requires ongoing attention. Our aftercare program supports you in maintaining recovery from drug or alcohol misuse, finding ways to prevent a relapse, and achieving a life filled with a sense of purpose and rewarding relationships.

Substance Use Treatment Therapies

Addiction is a physiological and emotional condition that is affected by an individual’s environment, co-occurring disorders, experiences, health, economic background, and more. So many diverse elements make each case of substance use disorder unique. 

At Immersion Recovery Center, we understand that addiction rehab is not a one-size-fits-all process. To address all facets of addiction, we offer proven, traditional therapies along with effective holistic approaches, allowing us to create a well-rounded, thorough, and personalized recovery program for each individual. Our offerings include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Recreational therapy
  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness & Meditation
  • Lifeskills training
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)
