Addiction happens to everyone. It doesn’t discriminate; those young and old, of every race, gender, and creed, fall victim to addiction each and every day. And it happens right here in West Palm Beach, FL. From Delray Beach to Port Saint Lucie, addiction plagues our community and threatens our friends and families without prejudice.

Drug addiction is unfortunately pronounced in South Florida, including West Palm Beach. In 2017, city police and emergency medical services responded to over 700 overdose calls, up more than 60% since 2016. In 2016, 571 individuals died from opiate overdoses alone in Palm Beach County, largely due to the influx of fentanyl and fentanyl analogs present in bags of heroin. Illegal drugs often can’t be qualified based on makeup, as every dealer and every product differs, making it harder than ever to avoid taking too much of a stronger-than-anticipated opiate. From 2015 to 2016, deaths related to fentanyl increased 97%, indicating a serious problem that is significantly affecting those in the the tri-county area, including Broward and Miami-Dade counties as well. Fentanyl isn’t the only culprit, either, as there were also 86 cocaine overdose deaths in 2016.

Overdose challenges don’t end in South Florida; statewide, there were 5,725 opioid-related deaths in 2016, an increase of 35% from 2015. Tragically, these numbers do not appear to be decreasing.

Seeking Help in West Palm Beach

For those in West Palm Beach, seeking help isn’t always easy. There are many stigmas surrounding drug addiction, even with the critical nature of opiate abuse in South Florida, and not everyone is comfortable speaking up. Drug addiction can feel shameful or embarrassing, like something that shouldn’t be admitted. Substance users often experience feelings of isolation, abandonment, and frustration, as if there’s nowhere to turn and no one to help.

At The Detox Center, we’re prepared to support and guide those in West Palm Beach and beyond, serving substance users from Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Wellington, Jupiter, and everywhere in between. Our alcohol and drug detox services are designed to provide a supportive foundation for sobriety, helping users to get over the initial pain of withdrawals so that they can commit to comprehensive addiction treatment.

Our facility will serve as your home during the initial days of detox, offering professional support and both traditional and alternative methods to help you overcome withdrawal and focus on a better, brighter future.

How Detox Makes a Difference

Detox, or detoxification, is the process of helping recovering substance users through withdrawal in the first days or weeks after quitting a substance. Due to the nature of how addictive substances affect the body and brain, quitting can come with significant physical symptoms, including nausea, anxiety, muscle aches and pains, stomach cramps, paranoia, and insomnia. This can be deeply unpleasant, leading users to return to a substance of choice rather than fighting through to the other side.

At The Detox Center in West Palm Beach, our goal is to guide you past the initial days or weeks of withdrawals, helping to manage your symptoms and overcome the discomfort that often comes with quitting drugs. Our medical professionals and counselors have worked with hundreds of patients dedicated to quitting heroin, cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, prescription drugs, and alcohol, ensuring experience and expertise that caters to everyone who comes through our doors. We know that the journey to sobriety is never easy, but it’s our mission to teach tools and coping methods that can be carried throughout your recovery.

Drug and Alcohol Detox in Palm Beach County

The Detox Center is a primary resource for those seeking sobriety in West Palm Beach, providing a way to start your recovery on the right foot.

We realize that making the decision to commit to detox can be overwhelming. Most substance users have tried and failed to quit at least once before, creating a mental block that can stand in the way of successful sobriety. However, a slip up doesn’t mean recovery isn’t possible – anywhere from 40% to 60% of those with a substance use disorder relapse at least once – and it’s never too late to try again.

At The Detox Center, we combine traditional therapeutic techniques, like prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, and counseling, with alternative options, like art therapy and yoga. Our goal is to cultivate skills and knowledge that build up personal strength, teaching the mental, physical, and psychological fortitude necessary to overcome addiction.
