Alcohol Detox

Alcohol withdrawal and detox can be very dangerous, uncomfortable and even potentially deadly. This is especially true if a person attempts it without medical treatment.  Specialized medical treatments are avilable for safe and comfortable detoxification off of alcohol that can be done on an outpatient basis.

Appointments for our Delray Beach alcohol detox program are available at convenient times both before and after common working hours, so patients can undergo outpatient alcohol detox without missing work. The downtown Delray Beach location is convenient and very easily accessed by patients living in both Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

The Dr. Rodriguez Method for Outpatient Alcohol Detox

We follow a slower and more methodical detoxification pace that follows the body’s natural physiology, which is much safer and effective than a rushed 5 to 7-day program. Especially when detoxing from alcohol, a more gentle pace helps minimize, if not eliminate, the risk for brain damage.  Faster detoxification lasting less than 7-10 days presents this risk.

This is manageable with a careful choice of medications over a sufficiently long period of time. Physical comfort equates to neurologic safety when it comes to alcohol detox.  Alcohol detox post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS) are managed promptly and effectively, which further improves comfort and reduces relapse rates.  This is in sharp contrast to inpatient detox facilities. At these facilities, patients have already been discharged before post-acute withdrawal symptoms develop. This leaves them highly vulnerable to relapse so early in their recovery. 

Many individuals that had just completed an inpatient alcohol detox come to the Delray Center due to the debilitating post-acute withdrawal symptoms they are still experiencing. These symptoms may include tremors, night sweats, loss of appetite, fatigue, insomnia, nausea, and muscle spasms. We offer screenings for these symptoms and manage them effectively for the best results.

Alcohol detoxification is not safely complete until all of the withdrawal and post-acute withdrawal symptoms are fully resolvable. We are here to help you get to this final step of recovery.
