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?

Before you are able to address your underlying causes of alcohol addiction such as deep rooted emotions and traumas that have influenced your addictive behaviors, it is important that you are in a clear, stable mindset to fully engage in addiction therapy methods. Alcohol detox is the first initial step to take in your road to recovery as it will help to alleviate the physical addiction to alcohol and support you in overcoming any presenting alcohol withdrawal symptoms safely and comfortably. Throughout your time in medical detox, you will have the ongoing support and supervision of our medical team including licensed registered nurses and doctors that will be monitoring your progress throughout your alcohol detox process. As you experience any withdrawal symptoms, you will be assessed and provided with medical treatments and interventions including medication assisted treatment that will help in reducing the severity of your alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the severity of your alcohol use disorder, you may experience severe withdrawal symptoms that have the potential of becoming life threatening. Our expert team of medical professionals will support you in maintaining your physical and mental health safety and wellbeing while supporting you to remain focused on your overarching goals of living in addiction recovery.

What To Expect During Detox?

When you first arrive at our recovery center, you will meet with one of our admission specialists and a member of our team of medical professionals who will take the time to get to know your specific history with alcohol and drug abuse. It is important for our team to understand the length of time you have been engaging in substance abuse, the severity of your substance abuse, any co occurring disorders of mental health disorders, and any pre existing medical concerns. By gathering a comprehensive outlook and understanding of your specific history with substance abuse, it will better inform our practices and methods to support you in a safe, effective alcohol detox process that are customized to meet your specific levels of care that you require. Once you complete the initial admission process, you will begin to reside within our residential treatment center throughout your medical detox program.

How Long is Detox?

Allentown residents that are preparing to begin their alcohol detox and treatment programs will often have questions about what to expect when you enter into alcohol detox including how long you will be undergoing an alcohol detox program. Each individual person will have their own specific history with substance abuse and the extent and severity of your alcohol abuse will influence the length of time that you are in alcohol detox. Factors including the length of time you have been engaging in alcohol abuse, the amount of alcohol that you consume within a given time, and how often you engage in alcohol abuse will influence the length of time that you will be in alcohol detox. As you progress through your medical detox process and begin to overcome any presenting alcohol cravings and withdrawal symptoms, you will be in a place mentally and physically to begin your alcohol rehab program.

Symptoms of Alcohol Detox

Your history of alcohol abuse is unique to you and your time in alcohol detox will reflect that. Depending on the severity of your alcohol addiction, you will experience a range of withdrawal symptoms including: 

  • Headaches
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression
  • Insomnia or changes in sleeping patterns 
  • Fatigue 
  • Mood swings 
  • Irregular heart rate or experiencing heart palpitations
  • Increased blood pressure 
  • Rapid heart rate 
  • Hyperthermia 
  • Rapid, abnormal breathing

Acute Detox

An acute detox is a treatment program that is specifically for individuals that are experiencing significant and severe withdrawal symptoms and side effects that pose a risk to your overall safety and wellbeing. Patients in an acute detox will be recommended to attend a medical detox where you can reside within the treatment facility where you can be closely monitored and treated by medical professionals. With the consistent supervision of health care professionals, you will be able to safely overcome severe or potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms without experiencing negative side effects.

Sub-Acute Detox

For those Allentown residents that are going into alcohol detox but only experiencing mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms, a sub acute detox program will provide you with the support that you need to safely overcome your alcohol addiction. Patients experiencing mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms are at a low risk for having serious or life threatening withdrawal symptoms and often will have side effects that can be managed within an outpatient alcohol rehab in Allentown. Patients in a sub acute detox will come into the treatment facility to check in with medical professionals and addiction counselors during the day and be able to return home every night.
