At Tampa Bay Recovery Center, we offer outpatient detox near Tampa so that individuals who are stable enough to detox at home can continue going to work, or school.
Outpatient detox allows the person to attend treatment during the day but still return to their home after the day’s sessions. Our skilled team members offer relief for withdrawal symptoms and the emotional support to help each person complete detox and continue through the next steps of treatment.
What is 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.
Detox can be a minimum of one week, however can last longer depending on each individual’s needs. Detox allows the body to release the toxins built up during addiction, however can cause withdrawal symptoms which can be emotionally and physically uncomfortable.
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 health, dual 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.
