Alumni Testimonials

Daybreak changed my life. The staff – from the nurses, therapists, managers, and most importantly – the on-site techs, were all extremely helpful in our recovery. Everything you need is available from detox all the way through residential treatment. (I did not participate in any further treatment options). If you or someone you love really wants the help, this is a great place to find it. This is definitely something that you take out what you put in, and if you participate in the groups, the therapy, and take advantage of the help that they willingly offer – you can make change here. Thanks to the Daybreak family, I am 101 days into a powerful new life.

Daybreak has been extremely beneficial in my recovery process. The staff, many of whom are in recovery themselves, have shown me repeatedly that they genuinely care about me and all the other clients here. This fact, combined with their knowledge on the recovery process, has benefited me more than any other treatment center in the past. My counselor, Holly, has been especially helpful to me. I would absolutely recommend Daybreak to a friend or anyone struggling with addiction.

Kyle M.

I cannot say enough about this place! Daybreak saved my life! From the minute I walked in the door I was treated with respect, dignity, and a compassion I had never experienced in any of the many other treatment facilities I had been to. What made the difference for me was the staff. The people who worked there truly cared about me and my recovery. There honestly was never a moment that I felt alone and the fact that many of the staff are in recovery themselves meant they truly understood what I was going through at my most vulnerable. Knowing these people were so invested in saving me from myself, were always there if I needed to talk, and that they honestly cared about me and my recovery undoubtedly made all the difference for me. Daybreak also maintains a family atmosphere in such beautiful facilities and makes sure that your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs are being met. I’ve never had such an amazing experience in treatment before. If you or a loved one is suffering please PLEASE let Daybreak give you the opportunity to get your life back.

What is Alcohol Detox Like?

Alcohol detox at DayBreak rehab centers takes place in our luxury facility in the countryside of Philadelphia. We meet with each client before treatment begins to evaluate what types of medical treatments you will need, whether you require dual diagnosis for mental health issues, medication assisted treatment (MAT), and whether there is anything else we can do to help you get back on your feet and meet your recovery goals once you move into a customized rehab program.

Detoxing from alcohol is not easy, but in the DayBreak Trenton treatment center we do all we can to ensure you feel comfortable and safe throughout your treatment. With a maximum of two patients per room and full-sized beds with your own TV, you will feel at home in our detox treatment center. Every client who is detoxing at DayBreak also has access to amenities like a holistic spa, massage therapy, salon services, and a movie theater.

What To Expect During Detox?

At DayBreak recovery center for substance abuse treatment and drug addiction treatment, we have each patient move into our inpatient detox center for anywhere from 3 to 10 days on average. Each person is given a customized medical detox program that includes:

  • Medical treatments
  • 24-hour nursing care overseen by a medical doctor
  • Psychological care and counseling
  • Medications to reduce anxiety, pain, restlessness, and alcohol cravings

How Long is Detox?

The length of detox varies from person to person, depending on your biological makeup, how long and how much you have been drinking, whether you have used other drugs alongside the alcohol, and your history of relapsing, alcohol use and drug use.

Detox for alcohol abuse does not follow a specific timeline, but in general:

  • In the first 6-12 hours you will begin to feel headaches, have stomach issues, and experience anxiety and insomnia
  • Between 12-48 hours after your last drink your symptoms will likely get worse, and you may feel distress, pain, and feverish. This is when many people tend to relapse, as drinking may feel easier than going through these symptoms
  • Between 48-72 hours is the most dangerous time for most people. This is when delirium tremens will begin to show, with hallucinations, confusion, and seizures, often requiring medical intervention to stay safe and healthy
  • Once the peak of your symptoms have subsided you will begin to feel a bit better each day, and after around 7-10 days you will be medically stable enough to move on to your inpatient rehab program

Symptoms of Alcohol Detox

Common side effects of alcohol withdrawal as the body removes toxins from your system include:

  • Uncontrollable sweating
  • Tremors and shaky hands
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Brain fog
  • Insomnia
  • Increased heart rate
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Headaches
  • Restlessness
  • Intense cravings for alcohol

It is never recommended to try quitting alcohol without medical supervision in a treatment facility, even if you believe your addiction is mild. Every person’s time in detox is different and your body may react more or less severely than other people. The withdrawal symptoms can cause sudden changes in brain activity causing seizures and delirium tremens, which may cause brain damage, coma, and even death in some cases.

Acute Detox

Acute detox is an inpatient detox program for people who may require medical treatment, 24-hour monitoring, psychiatric care, and physical health care due to intense withdrawal symptoms. In the case of alcohol detox, the most serious withdrawal symptoms include seizures and delirium tremens, otherwise known as “DTs”, which are a series of dangerous symptoms of withdrawal that include:

  • Agitation and confusion
  • High fever
  • Seizures
  • Auditory hallucinations (hearing things that are not there)
  • Visual hallucinations (seeing things that are not there)
  • Tactile hallucinations (feeling sensations of something crawling under your skin)
  • The possibility of death

Alcohol detox often requires acute detoxification programs because the symptoms can escalate quickly, without warning. Being in a fully capable medical facility surrounded by professional, experienced staff and caregivers will ensure you remain safe and comfortable in the case of serious side effects due to withdrawal.

Sub-Acute Detox

Sub-acute detox is a lighter level of detox program for those who only have a mild addiction to alcohol, and who are not experiencing serious physical withdrawal symptoms or co-occurring psychological issues like PTSD or dual diagnosis conditions like bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, depression, and other mental illness. Like acute detox, it can take anywhere from days to weeks to complete a sub-acute detox program. Each person’s detox is completely customized to their unique needs as an individual and we never provide unnecessary treatments.

Although inpatient detox is always recommended, as it will keep you in a 100% sober living in Trenton, away from everyday stress and the temptation to relapse, sub-acute detox may also take place in an outpatient environment in some cases.
