The recovery community in Palm Beach County is one of the biggest in the nation, so if you Google “Finding a Palm Beach detox center,” you are likely to get bombarded with links to different treatment centers and detox facilities in the area. It can be very overwhelming to try to wade through all the information. So how do you go about finding a Palm Beach detox center that is right for you?
– If you are planning to attend treatment after detox, the best place to start when you are finding a Palm Beach detox center is with the treatment center you have chosen. The treatment center will either have an on-site detox facility or will have one or more outside detox facilities that they work with. Intake counselors at the treatment center will be able to provide you with the information you need about the detox facility, and will be able to ensure that it is covered by your healthcare insurance. If it is an outside facility, make sure you call them too. They will be able to tell you how to pack for detox, their general rules, and what to expect while you are there.
-If you are not planning to attend drug treatment after detox, the best way of finding a Palm Beach detox center is by contacting your health insurance provider. They will be able to give you a list of detox facilities in the area that are covered under your plan. Most health insurance plans do cover detox, but you may have a co-pay or deductible. Make sure you find out what your benefits are so that you can plan accordingly.
– Your primary care doctor can aid you in finding a Palm Beach detox center or choosing from a list your insurance company provides. A medical professional can direct you to the Palm Beach detox center that is equipped to help you, particularly if you have a co-occurring disorder. Co-occurring disorders are any disorder you are suffering from besides addiction, like depression, bulimia, or chronic pain. Your doctor will be able to ensure that you get the help you need and provide the detox center with important information about your health.
-Word of mouth can be a very valuable asset when you are finding a Palm Beach detox center. If you know someone who has been to detox in the area, or know someone who knows someone, it’s a great place to start. People who have actually been to a detox facility in Palm Beach can give you valuable information regarding staff, accommodations, and protocol. Remember, detox and treatment is big business, so intake agents will try to make the facility sound fabulous and online pictures can be misleading. Whenever possible, ask someone who has actually been there.
