Florida Drug & Alcohol Rehab Center

Detox of South Florida offers customized addiction treatment for the needs of individuals

As one of the top rated drug and alcohol rehab centers, we begin with the notion that everyone’s needs and struggles differ. We build on this notion to comprise all steps of the recovery process. The first step is listening. Our fully licensed staff of experienced and sympathetic medical professionals ensure the time to learn about all patients.

We discover who our patients are, what types of treatment will work best, and what values are important to them. Once Detox of South Florida has the information needed, we design a recovery program to heal the mind, body, and spirit. This recovery programs transforms, grows and changes over time as our patients adapt and develop. We converse with our patients, patients push forward in their recovery, and as a team we discover the strongest path to completion.

Detox of South Florida has comprehensive treatment options

We have many tactics to ensure no stone is left unturned in the recovery process. Detox of South Florida dives beneath the surface to discover the root cause of patient addiction. Many cultivate drug and alcohol addictions to ease issues from past traumatic experiences. Others’ addictions derived from the management of mental health issues such as bipolar disorder, anxiety and depression. We use IV amino acid therapy to replenish the neurotransmitters which are depleted in patients with long term Opiate and addiction. IV amino acid therapy has shown to hasten the detox and rehab from opiates and alcohol.

When other psychiatric struggles accompany an addiction, they are referred to as co-occurring disorders. Co-occurring addicts have multiple diagnoses and is a complex treatment process. As one of the top drug rehab centers, we have a strong expertise in the identification of these disorders, and the application of evidence-driven therapy and treatment to address them.

The comprehensive treatment approaches offered through our detox and rehab services cover all facets of drug addiction and alcohol dependency, utilizing an informed care model developed in-house to address any chronic pain problems with non-addictive medical supplementation like IV amino acid therapy.

Detox of South Florida assists patients in cultivating a positive and productive lifestyle

The personalized substance abuse treatment programs offered by Detox of South Florida empower patients to lead their newly healthy, fulfilling, and productive lifestyle after exiting rehab. We assist patience in the development of practical skills to identify and disrupt cyclical addiction.

In collaboration with patients, we work diligently to replace self-destructive coping mechanisms with newly created, constructive patterns of behaviors and thinking. Detox of South Florida is an alcohol and drug rehab that partners with our patients in this ongoing process, dedicating ourselves to meeting and exceeding expectations and goals. Lifelong sobriety for all is our credo, and we create Detox programs to fit this. We stay fixed on the present, but remain mindful of the past, and keep our eyes on the future.

Post-recovery patient outreach and post-treatment options available through Detox of South Florida mesh with patients’ personalized detox and rehab programs to provide the social support systems essential to maintain a steadfast recovery.
