The question of what a detox is and whether a rehab in Florida has facilities to accommodate such a process are really important questions. Any person who is addicted to alcohol and/or drugs is potentially at risk of serious side-effects when coming off them.
Such a tapering off of alcohol or drugs often needs to be supervised medically, and this is what a detox normally refers to.
Some rehabs in Florida will also refer to detoxing as a sort of purifying of the body.
This can refer to a holistic approach to detox, but normally means a detox around the areas of diet and lifestyle rather than a medically supervised tapering off of alcohol or drugs.
Not everyone needs to be supervised, but a rehab in Florida needs to have the facilities to undertake a detox if it is needed. A rehab in Florida will either have the facilities to oversee and do the detox themselves, or should have arrangements with a local hospital or other clinical facility that can oversee such a process.
This is one of the questions that you should be asking when researching or undertaking admission to any rehab in Florida.
The question of detox is in fact part of a broader question, which is the level of medical and clinical experts that are employed by the rehab to oversee and supervise care whilst the client is in residence there.
Rehab in Florida – Clinical Experts
The term clinical experts is an important one, because it covers a wide range of professions, all of which should be employed by a rehab in Florida to provide holistic care as part of an addiction treatment program.
Clinical experts normally refer to medical and nursing personnel, as well as other types of professions such as pharmacists, physiotherapists and psychiatrists. A rehab in Florida should have a broad range of clinical experts who are resident and part of the team providing care.
It is not good to have a rehab that has clinicians who are not resident. The team of clinical experts needs to be based at the rehab full-time, so that they can oversee and supervise the level of care, both medically and therapeutically, of the client on a daily basis.
A rehab in Florida can be an expensive process, and one of the main reasons for it being so expensive should be the level of clinical attention and care that is provided.
In addition a rehab in Florida may well have other types of professionals on its staff. It is worth looking at the broad range of experience that these profesionals offer.
A rehab in Florida is likely to employ so-called alternative therapists, who may practice chi kung or tai chi or yoga. There may also be more adventurous types of alternative programs such as adventure programs – rockclimbing, hiking ,trail blazing etc. These are not common but are offered by a number of rehabs in Florida.
