Detox is the first step along the path of recovery leading to a better life. Drug addiction is a multilayered phenomenon; it affects every part of the body, especially the brain. Once a substance is smoked, inhaled, or injected, it is absorbed into the body and hinders normal function of the brain. Once the brain experiences a rush of these harmful substances, a powerful surge of dopamine or other feel-good neurotransmitters is released into the brain’s pleasure center, causing the brain to continue to seek out the same feeling, regardless of the consequences. A person who is addicted to drugs, alcohol, or both becomes physically and psychologically dependent on the substance. Addiction essentially hijacks the brain, altering brain chemistry, brain structure, mental health, physical health, emotional and psychological health. The only way to start to break from this vicious cycle is through drug detoxification. Detox of Delray is a drug detoxification center in Delray Beach, Florida that has seen the long-term effects from neglecting to medically detox from drugs and alcohol.
Addiction has a long and powerful influence on the brain. Therefore, suddenly dropping the addiction can be incredibly painful and seemingly impossible, as withdrawal can present undesirable physical and mental effects. For longtime abusers, opting out of a medical detoxification and attempting to quit “cold turkey” can lead to death.

Our medical professionals design a plan specific to your needs that will ensure you safely detox in comfort. We take into consideration the length of the substance abuse, the amount consumed, your physical and mental condition, and any previous detoxifications.
