When people think of detox, they think of juicing and going on a fast to rid the body of toxins ingested through food. Medical detox does involve the process of removing toxins and bad chemicals from your body for a better and healthier life, but it is much more detailed and clinically monitored. Medical detox is a specialized and monitored procedure that rids the body of toxins, chemicals and ingredients from drug use and drug abuse. Palm Partners is one of the only a drug and alcohol rehab centers in Delray Beach that has a safe and clinically monitored detox center.

Intake process of Palm Partners Medical Detoxification
At intake you will meet with a behavioral health technician for your initial evaluation. When you meet with the behavioral health technician they will take down all your information, log all your belongings and store them in a safe for you. You’ll then go through a detailed and thorough medical review of your current and past health condition and drug use with a nurse. It’s important that you are honest and tell the behavioral health technicians and nurses all information needed about your drug use so the Director of Nursing can create the best taper for you. They need to know what kind of drugs you’ve been using (prescribed or not), for how long, and in conjunction with what other drugs. Anything that you’ve used needs to be documented for your safety and care. Don’t worry we’ve heard it all so there’s no need to feel embarrassed or ashamed; remember we’re here to help you get back on track.
Taper process of Palm Partners Medical Detoxification
In reference to drug and alcohol treatments tapers are administered to gradually wean a client off of the drug they were using. Tapers start at a certain dosage and are continually reduced until the client is complete “detoxed” from drugs and alcohol. This form of medical detoxification is safer for the patient than going “cold turkey” which can cause severe withdrawal symptoms and in some cases death. Using the tapering process is standard in drug and alcohol rehab treatment and produces great results. The types of prescribed medications given in tapers vary on a case by case basis. Every client is an individual in their own body, health and drug use so there are individualized tapers created based on the clients’ needs.

Medical detoxification at Palm Partners can take anywhere from 4-10 days depending on your individual needs. Throughout those 4- 10 days you will have access to our clinical detox team 24 hours a day.
