The United States is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. In fact, a recent study finds that opioids are now responsible for 1 in 5 deaths among young adults. Premature death from opiates continues to be an ongoing public health concern across the United States. Many police and firefighters are now required to carry Narcan to combat overdoses. While Narcan is bringing addicts back to life, drug detox in Tamarac gives addicts an opportunity to lead a new drug-free life.
Keeping up the lifestyle of opioid addiction is mentally and physically exhausting. It doesn’t matter if you get prescriptions from a doctor or if you buy them on the street, addiction can lead to an unmanageable life coupled with depression and self-loathing. When habit dictates your every move, it becomes impossible to live a meaningful life.
Empire Detox can give you the necessary tools to begin a much more purposeful life in recovery. The first step is to rid the body of all the opiates. This process can be quite uncomfortable as opiate addicts experience withdrawal for the early 3 to 5 days. Symptoms often include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, sweating, hot and cold chills, runny nose, watery eyes, lack of energy and inability to sleep. Our professional medical staff is trained to make detox as comfortable as possible through medications and other therapies. Opiate-addicted patients are typically put on a fast Buprenorphine taper that makes withdrawal symptoms much more manageable.
The average stay for a patient at our detox is about one week. After leaving our facility, we highly recommend entering a treatment center or a sober living home to help encourage lasting sobriety. Don’t let opiate addiction control your life any longer. At Empire Detox we provide a drug detox In Tamarac that can help you rebuild your life.
