Alcohol Detox Program in Broward County
Alcohol addiction, or alcohol use disorder, also sometimes referred to as alcoholism, is a pattern of alcohol use that involves inability to stop or control drinking, being preoccupied with alcohol, continuing to use despite persistent negative consequences, increased tolerance or the need to drink more to get the same effect, or experiencing withdrawal symptoms when consumption decreases or abruptly stops. While experts have tried to uncover factors that influence alcohol addiction, results continue to reflect that there is no single cause. Psychological, genetic, environmental, and behavioral factors could all contribute to someone struggling with the disease.
Alcoholism is a long-term medical illness. It is not a weakness or a lack of willpower, but is a complex and progressive illness that can lead to life-threatening situations if left untreated.
The alcohol detox program offered at The Retreat of Broward offers a tranquil environment where individuals struggling with an alcohol use disorder can be assured a safe medical withdrawal from alcohol.
During the admission process, our clinical team works to understand the unique needs of every patient to ensure that they receive the care and attention needed for a safe detox. Following initial admission, patients undergo a medical detoxification process designed to minimize discomfort and protect the patient from any medical risks inherent in withdrawal. Our trained and experienced staff strive to treat all patients with dignity, respect, and compassion.
