Where Can I Find Medical Detox Centers in Jacksonville, Florida?

Depending on how strongly you are addicted and how high your consumption has been, the way your body reacts to alcohol withdrawal can vary dramatically. Symptoms range from quite mild to life threatening. Some of the symptoms can include irritability, anxiety, agitation, high blood pressure, raised heart rate, seizures, and delirium tremens, and symptoms can be fatal.2

Because of this, facing withdrawals without assistance can be very dangerous. In a medical detox center, patients are given medical treatment to deal with the intense symptoms of withdrawals as well as the health and safety risks they pose. In a medical detox facility physicians are available at all hours.3 Out of the 668 facilities in Florida, 48 are hospital inpatient facilities that provide medical detox.1

State-Funded Insurance (i.e. Medicaid)

About 72 million Americans are on Medicaid.4 This federal healthcare coverage program is made available to adults with low income, their children, people suffering from certain disabilities, and the elderly. Despite being partially funded by the federal government, each state administers Medicaid programs separately.4

Even if you have been turned down for Medicaid in the past and your financial circumstances are roughly the same, you may be eligible if you applied before the Affordable Care Act was passed. After it was passed the income and asset requirements were loosened to allow more people in. While not all facilities accept it, there are 254 facilities that accept it in Florida, or 38 percent of the facilities in the state.1
