Promises Behavioral Health announces the opening of Bel CantoSM drug detoxification center, located just outside West Palm Beach, Fla. West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 21, 2015 \u2013 Promises Behavioral Health has announced the opening of Bel CantoSM drug detoxification center, a premier 16-bed facility centrally located on the border of West Palm Beach, Fla. The center\u2019s experienced, multidisciplinary team includes a medical director, psychiatrists, psychiatric and advanced nurse practitioners, a therapist, case manager and recovery coach. Medical detox is a necessary first step for many people trying to overcome drug or alcohol addiction as withdrawal from drugs of abuse often requires medical supervision to prevent life-threatening medical complications and ensure client comfort during the detox period. \u201cWe put this program together with great care,\u201d says Janis Blenden, LCSW, the detox center\u2019s executive director. \u201cIt has been three years in the making, and we\u2019ve incorporated key elements that we think are essential for a medically safe, emotionally supportive detox experience.\u201d The program includes the latest evidence-based medications to ease withdrawal symptoms, individual and group therapy with holistic components, round-the-clock nursing, and an excellent staff-to-client ratio to provide an exceptional level of individual attention and care. \u201cWe\u2019ve created a program that prepares clients to enter the next phase of treatment, physically and mentally ready to begin the work of overcoming their addictions,\u201d says Blenden, a veteran clinician with Florida\u2019s Department of Children and Families and a national speaker on mental health court programs. Bel CantoSM detox center is set on a large property lined with mango trees, shade trees and other greenery. \u201cWhen they enter our gates,\u201d says Blenden, \u201cclients find a quiet and tranquil oasis amid a bustling city.\u201d The facility has new, modern furnishings, warm d\u00e9cor and comfortable living and common spaces, as well as access to outdoor seating areas. \u201cWe are excited about the addition of the Bel Canto detox facility into our family of addiction treatment centers,\u201d says Promises Behavioral Health CEO David Sack, MD. \u201cAlthough we operate facilities nationwide, this is our first dedicated detox center and the first detox facility that we\u2019ve built from the ground up. We\u2019ve drawn on all of our training and experience to create a comfortable, convenient, medically advanced facility.\u201d About Promises Behavioral Health Bel CantoSM detox center is a member of Promises Behavioral Health, an owner of a series of behavioral health programs located throughout the United States.
