Medication-Assisted Alcohol Detox in Tampa

Detoxing from alcohol is not always as simple as not drinking anymore. Alcohol is a surprisingly dangerous substance to quit, so the cold-turkey method is not recommended, especially if you have been drinking for a long time.

Mild withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Anxiety and mood swings
  • Tremors
  • Uncontrollable sweating
  • Confusion or brain fog
  • Irritability
  • Nightmares
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headache
  • Increased heart rate

You may also experience serious alcohol cravings and flu-like symptoms at this time. Delirium Tremens (DTs) are dangerous withdrawal symptoms that can occur suddenly, such as:

  • Confusion
  • Agitation
  • High fever
  • Auditory, visual, and tactile hallucinations
  • Seizures

The severity and unpredictability of alcohol withdrawal symptoms are why medical supervision is strongly recommended when detoxing from alcohol.

Our MAT in Tampa program is an integrated treatment. We also introduce therapy and dual diagnosis treatments early so you can have support dealing with any mental illness, co-occurring conditions, and emotions during this time.

Benefits of Medical Detox for Alcohol in Tampa

There are many benefits to medical alcohol detox, including:

  • 24-hour medical staff on duty to ensure you are safe and medications are doing their job.
  • Being in a new environment can keep you focused and help you avoid a relapse when things become difficult.
  • Because of the medications given, MAT is the most comfortable way to detox from alcohol.
  • The medications used in MAT will not get you high or create a new addiction such as Suboxone or Vivitrol.
  • Therapy and other mental health treatment are provided at the same time to address all issues together.
  • Treatment will be customized to best suit your specific needs.
  • MAT reduces the risk of relapsing in most patients.

How Long Does Detox Last?

Everybody’s detox takes a different amount of time, depending on factors like:

  • How long you have been drinking
  • How much you have been drinking at a time
  • If you were using any other drugs while drinking
  • Your mental and physical health during detox
  • Your history with alcohol detoxing and relapse

At WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab, we do not have a schedule your detox has to follow because everybody is different. We will keep you safe and comfortable in detox until you are stabilized and ready to move on to the next phase of your treatment.

What Happens After Alcohol Detox?

After detox, we can seamlessly transition you into our inpatient rehab program. This program lasts for a minimum of 30 days and is where the real recovery work begins. You will receive a combination of group and individual therapy, medical care, and you will have access to our incredible amenities.

Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Tampa

Once you leave inpatient rehab, you are not automatically cured of addiction, and you are bound to run into tough times or other triggers that may tempt you into relapsing. Therefore a continued connection to a supportive sober community is essential.

At WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab, we have outpatient programs that are customizable and flexible to fit your specific needs.
