One of the vital steps in a patient’s journey of recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction is the detox process. Alcoholism and drug addiction rewires the chemical balances in the human brain in a way that makes proper decision making and healthy living impossible. Detox is the process of ridding the body of drugs and alcohol in a safe environment so that healing can begin. Many people who are familiar with the programs of Alcoholics Anonymous or its corollary programs, such as Narcotics Anonymous, will be familiar with the phrase “one day at a time”. There are a few reasons that “one day at a time” is an important mantra for recovery, but when it comes to detox there is an added benefit of thinking about one’s recovery one day at a time. Detox is a difficult process, however, after a person has completed the detoxification process in a safe environment like Florida Springs, many people believe that each day can get progressively easier and more comfortable. Many people who use drugs or alcohol for an extended period of time can eventually begin to feel uncomfortable or even sick when they are sober for even one 24-hour period. Detox is the end of that terrible cycle. Medically supervised detox at Florida Springs Wellness and Recovery Center is the beginning of a brand-new day.
