Alcohol & Drug Detox Center: Oyster Bay, New York

Best Detox Center for Alcohol & Drugs: Oyster Bay Residents

When you have decided that you are going to remove the influence from drugs or alcohol from your life, an important consideration should always be the role that detox will play in your overall treatment plan. As one of the best detox centers for alcohol and drugs, the Legacy Healing Center in South Florida provides our clients with the opportunity to go through the withdrawal process in a safe environment. You will have the benefit of knowing that a trained member of our team will monitor you around the clock to ensure that you remain in good health.

It’s important to remember that several factors need to be considered when you are ready to enroll in an alcohol or drug detox program. That is why you must be open and honest with one of our recovery specialists regarding your addiction when you initially reach out to Legacy. One of the essential elements that we will need to know is the extent of your addiction. For many clients, if you have a long-standing addiction, there is an increased possibility that your withdrawal symptoms may be more severe.

Another piece of information that we will need to know is your drug or drink of choice. The reason for this is that these details will have a direct impact on your detox plan. For many clients addicted to alcohol, their withdrawal symptoms will set in within a few hours of their last drink. The same holds for many clients that have an addiction to drugs. However, there are certain drugs where the process may be delayed by a few days. Remember that we never judge our clients at Legacy, which is why we encourage you to be upfront and honest with us to do everything that we can to help you.

For both drug and alcohol detox, the entire process typically takes approximately seven days. The height of your withdrawal symptoms usually takes hold between the second and the third day. However, without first taking the critical step of working through a detox program, there is a reduced chance that you will indeed be able to absorb the information and tools that you will learn once you begin your treatment plan in rehab.


What Is Alcohol Detox Like?

Many clients who go through alcohol detox are taking the first step toward changing the people, places, and things around them that may contribute to their addiction. With alcohol so readily available, it’s easy to give in to temptation as soon as you begin to feel any discomfort. Your mind can also play tricks on you too simply because there is a part of you that may subconsciously still want to feed your addiction. When you are not in an environment that is conducive to sobriety, you may inadvertently sabotage yourself.

When you come to Legacy Healing in South Florida, you will be met with a team of caring individuals that can help to monitor your withdrawal symptoms and aid you in your initial recovery. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to narrow down the exact type of withdrawal symptoms that you may experience. Often, it will become difficult for you to take care of yourself during this period which is why we strongly recommend that you come to Legacy for detox.


What Is Drug Detox Like?

In many ways, drug detox is very similar to alcohol detox. Withdrawal symptoms can be very similar. Issues with your stomach or the feeling of nausea, trembling, and an increase in your heart rate are all examples of withdrawal symptoms that a variety of drugs can cause. Trying to determine the timing of when these withdrawal symptoms manifest can be tricky depending on your drug of choice, however. This unpredictability is one reason you never want to try to go through the process by yourself.

How Long Is Detox?

In most cases, you will need to spend at least one week in detox. However, this timeframe may need to be adjusted based on a variety of factors. For example, certain drugs can remain in your system for several days. As a result, you may need to spend more time in detox. When you first reach out to Legacy, we will take the time to learn more about you and your addiction to put together an accurate expectation regarding the various aspects of your detox plan and your overall recovery plan.

Why Choose Legacy to Detox?

Once you complete your detox program at Legacy, you can quickly and easily transition into your treatment plan. At Legacy, we offer clients the opportunity to enroll in an inpatient or one of our outpatient programs. As soon as you are through the worst of your detox symptoms, our team can begin to collaborate with you to design a treatment program that suits your recovery needs. Remember, each of our treatment plans is always put together with specific attention to our client’s personal requirements.

We recommend that clients who went through our detox program decide to enroll in our inpatient program when possible. Clients who take advantage of our inpatient program will have the peace of mind knowing that the 24 hours a day, seven days a week attention that they received during detox will carry over into their inpatient program. Like detox, you can count on having a comfortable and warm bed to sleep in every night, mouthwatering food throughout the day, and the support and encouragement of the Legacy Healing Center staff.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our recovery specialists today. During this 100% confidential phone call, we will be able to address any of your questions to arrange for you to come to Legacy Healing as soon as possible to begin your detox program. Are you ready to start the detox process? Please reach out to us today.
