In order to define an individual's drug treatment plan, first you have to deal with the withdrawal and drug detoxification as the first steps Most of the time, the effects of these substances are what causes the brain to justify sustained intake and even shun good advice; thus, it is only advisable to allow a period of time with no drug use so that the patient can have steady frame of mind.
During this period an addict is in a position to think about future plans which may include treatment as they have a moment of clarity. The idea is to get the individual to start to recognize the addiction and reduce and abolish drug use.
this timeframe in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) TIP 45 on drug detox is noted as a "window of opportunity" for a person with both medical and personal issues to think about further rehabilitation.
What Is Detox?
SAMHSA defines detoxification as a series of interventions that are structured in order to manage the symptoms that arise from withdrawal of the drug as well as acute or minor intoxication. Detox is separate from substance abuse treatment; it is a forerunner for it. Sometimes it may end up in a few days, but for others, detox may take a few months to end up. The detoxification specialists at Futures of Palm Beach are skilled in their area of expertise and are able to come up with a plan that effectively treats your withdrawal symptoms in addition to getting you a treatment plan that will work specifically for you as it is designed with you in mind. It is strongly suggested that you opt for a long-term treatment plan because detox can't help with the emotional, mental, cognitive and social problems related to addiction.

- It is imperative to accurately diagnose and assess a person's addiction for an appropriate treatment plan to be effective.

- Getting stabilized is the process in which the patient begins to withdraw from the substance that they have been using.
- The major achievement in this phase is getting to a state in which they are drug-free.
