How Does Outpatient Detox in Tampa Work?

Our outpatient detox in Tampa allows the person to come to us for treatment during the day and then go back home while attending other outpatient programs. This helps the person to achieve a balance between getting the important help they need and still being able to meet the responsibilities of their personal lives.

Our medical team monitors each person regularly for withdrawal symptoms. We can provide medical and psychological support to help ease them. This includes any necessary FDA-approved medications that ease the withdrawal process including medication-assisted treatment.

What To Expect During Detox?

Detox is the process of ridding the body of drugs and/or alcohol, which can lead to uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the substance, withdrawal can be life threatening. For those looking to attend outpatient detox, patients must qualify.

If a client does not qualify for our outpatient detox in Tampa, we will refer them to a local detox in the area before coming to us.

When a person first arrives to detox, a thorough assessment will be performed. This allows the medical staff to understand the individual’s unique needs and design a program suited to meet them. Factors include the substances being abused, the typical dosage, and how long the addiction has gone on. Other things the treatment team will consider are the person’s physical and mental healthdual diagnosis disorders, and any previous attempts at detox.

Once the person completes the detox process, we will provide a recommendation for the next step in treatment. We offer several levels of follow-up outpatient rehab that complement what the person accomplishes in detox.
