Opioid Detox Program
Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription pain relievers such as Vicodin, Percocet, Oxycontin, and other powerful opioid medications such as Fentanyl and Oxymoron in addition to illegal substances such as heroin.
The opioid detox program offered at The Retreat of Broward starts with a comprehensive evaluation of each patient. After the initial assessment, the patient will be medically detoxed in a manner designed to minimize discomfort and to preclude medical complications.
The Retreat of Broward provides ongoing care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week under the guidance of a medical doctor and supervision by licensed nurses. Each patient is also assigned an individual substance abuse therapist upon admission with whom they are able to address and develop individual treatment plans and appropriate discharge and aftercare plans. Additional assistance is provided by trained behavioral health technicians.
Because withdrawal can be taxing physically and mentally, The Retreat of Broward provides ample opportunities for rest and healing, in addition to brief psycho educational groups and leisurely activities, such as movies and interactive games. Catered meals are provided and healthy snacks and fresh fruit are available throughout the day.
