What Is Detox?
Detoxification or detox is the process of ridding the body of chemical substances and toxins. Detox is the first step to recovering from addiction. Eliminating all traces of drugs and alcohol from the body is critical for short- and long-term recovery. The detoxification process can get challenging, and withdrawal can be potentially dangerous or even life-threatening. That’s why it is recommended to detox under the supervision of professionals so experts can safely manage withdrawal symptoms and overall health can be monitored.
At Footprints Beachside Recovery, our detox professionals start with a comprehensive evaluation to assess your physical and mental health and measure the amount of substances in your system. We’ll also gather information about your drug or alcohol use history. This foundational information will help us determine what is best for your detox needs. Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. If we determine from our medical screening that you need deeper, more heavily medically supervised detox, we will recommend you to a local detoxification center where you can receive more thorough medical care.
Detox in a Safe Environment
Depending on the severity of you or your loved one’s addiction, detoxifying from drugs or alcohol alone could result in medical complications. Withdrawal symptoms can be especially dangerous.
Common withdrawal symptoms of alcohol addiction include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- High fever and sweating
Although withdrawal symptoms vary depending on the drug being used, typical drug withdrawal symptoms include:
- Sudden mood swings
- Muscle pain
- Changes in appetite
- Depression or anxiety

We are qualified to administer medications to ease these withdrawal symptoms to help people endure the challenging initial stage of recovery. At Footprints Beachside Recovery, our goal is to help our clients overcome withdrawal so that they can transition into the next phase of their healing process.
