​Opiate Detox Near West Palm Beach

Our outpatient detox program will help you reduce opiate cravings and withdrawal symptoms. They are  typically not dangerous. However, it is never advised to simply stop taking an opiate and going “cold turkey” on your own. Besides personal safety, a complete and thorough detoxification should be supervised by a physician.

Our opiate detox program is largely focused on using Suboxone and other medication assisted treatment medications. Suboxone has also become the standard for effective opiate detoxification. Additionally, Suboxone helps treat heroin addiction, as well as addiction to prescription painkillers (Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Percocet, etc). Most importantly, Suboxone’s efficacy provides safety and comfort that optimizes the entire outpatient detox process.

​Alcohol Detox in Palm Beach Gardens

Alternatives for you only performs outpatient alcohol detox for patients whose indications are mild to moderate. Notwithstanding, patients who exhibit moderate to severe alcohol addiction symptoms are referred to a local inpatient detox center. Above all, this is done to ensure patient safety, as alcohol can be very dangerous should long-term use stop abruptly. However, patients can generally begin right away with mild to moderate symptoms. To begin, the doctor is likely to prescribe FDA-approved comfort medications. Also, our physicians may prescribe Naltrexone as appropriate. As a result, Naltrexone has shown to suppress alcohol cravings and prevent relapse. Also, patients are monitored through follow-up appointments during detox.
