Drug & Alcohol Addiction FAQs

Inpatient addiction treatment provides a controlled environment, to allow the type of professional supervision and personal safety often required for those who desire healing from addiction. These individuals may face overwhelming urges without sufficient support, and residential treatment is an effective way to break habits while learning more about oneself and how to be successful long-term.

The treatment programs at The Delray Recovery Center are designed to provide a foundation for recovery and a framework for a healthy lifestyle. Our integrative treatment program, based on a five phase “step-down model”, provides a comprehensive continuum of care. The first phase is the most structured and intensive; and each phase thereafter offers more freedom. Each individual moves at his or her own speed through the different levels of the treatment process.

Individuals attempting to discontinue severe addictions without help typically have low degrees of success. Moreover, these individuals risk physical danger during withdrawal.

Physicians and therapists encourage individuals suffering from addiction to get help from qualified physicians and treatment facilities. Moreover, a medically monitored detoxification process is critical to avoid seizures, heart attacks, strokes, and even depression-related suicide during the withdrawal stages.
