If you or a loved one is seeking help for substance abuse, the team at Fairwinds Treatment Center can help. We are a full-service recovery center that has been helping patients in Clearwater, Florida, cleanse their bodies and minds and get on the road to sobriety since 1989. We take a unique approach to drug detox, helping individuals manage their withdrawal symptoms as part of a holistic and comprehensive treatment plan that is tailored to their unique needs.
Detoxification (detox) is the process of clearing the body of drugs and alcohol that an individual has consumed. Alcohol or drug addiction causes your body to become dependent on these substances to function. When these substances are gradually reduced and eventually removed altogether during detox, the brain has to adjust to the sudden drop in these chemicals, leading to unpleasant symptoms known as “withdrawal symptoms.”
The goal of detox is to safely minimize the negative impact of withdrawal symptoms and make the experience as comfortable as possible. Quitting “cold turkey” and detoxing at home without medical supervision can be dangerous and ineffective. At Fairwinds, we are here to help.
We do not offer a stand-alone drug detox program. Instead, we will work with your detox provider to help transition you into our care. We will then create a treatment plan that takes into account several different factors, including the types of substances abused, the amount of drugs in your system, and your psychiatric history. This could be an inpatient or outpatient program.
We know that addiction to alcohol and drugs often co-occurs with psychiatric disorders. That’s why we focus on dual diagnosis, which allows our team to uncover and treat issues such as depression, anxiety, and past trauma. This type of treatment will create a path for healing and sobriety that lasts well beyond the detox phase.
Residents of Clearwater, FL, can take the first step toward recovery today by contacting Fairwinds Treatment Center. An admissions counselor can answer any questions you may have and tell you more about the drug and alcohol detox treatment we offer.
