Best Inpatient Rehab Program

Welcome to Detox of South Florida – a recovery center rendering effective and evidence-based treatments for individuals wanting to overcome drug or alcohol dependency.  If you’ve discovered our facility by searching for “Best inpatient rehab near me” than this means you’ve taken the first step to recovering from addiction.  Choosing to attend an Inpatient Drug Rehab, in the interest of your health and long-term recovery, is the greatest choice you can make.

The abuse of drugs and alcohol has continued to plague the United States for years and it's important for victims of addiction to have a recovery center to attend that understands the complexities of the disease.  As a top-rated Florida inpatient rehab center that has set the standard for addiction recovery, our commitment to patient care and long-term recovery is reflected by a notable milestone: over 90% of patients who graduate from out Inpatient Rehab program maintain long-term sobriety and abstinence from drugs and/or alcohol.

Best Inpatient Rehab In Florida – A Unique & Effective Recovery Experience

What sets Detox of South Florida apart from other recovery facilities is the fact that treatment programs are individually created based on the recovery needs of the patient - one of the many reasons that patients from all over the nation travel to our facility.  We understand the many components of addiction including how it works, how it's managed, and how it's treated.  Recovery needs vary from patient to patient which is why we don't practice cookie-cutter recovery plans; unlike some facilities.

A patient recovering from alcoholism for a 5-year span will need treatment unique to that of what would be provided to a 6-month recovering addict.  This is why inpatient rehab centers, such as Detox of South Florida, provide personalized inpatient (and outpatient) rehab programs.  Inpatient Detox is also available for patients needing such a program.

Inpatient rehab at Detox of South Florida will provide patients with a variety of benefits that other programs won't.  Whether you're suffering from alcohol dependency, drug abuse, or both - our proficient clinical staff and addiction specialists are equipped with the tools and knowledge needed to aid each patient through the recovery process in a comforting approach.

Over 4,000 patients have received treatment to recover from dependency to drugs or alcohol.  98% of these patients have succeeded.

What’s an Inpatient Rehab Program?

Becoming sober without medical intervention and supervision can be dangerous and will more likely result in a relapse later down the line.  Inpatient Rehab centers provide individuals with monitored treatments where medical attention can be provided.  Emotional support and alternative therapy programs are also available to help patients cope with the experiences of addiction recovery.

Inpatient Rehab is a residential treatment program where patients are treated and housed on-site in a safe, private, and home-styled environment (shared).  Typically, most patients attend our inpatient program for a period of 30 days.  However, depending on the severity of the addiction, a 30 or 60-day program may be recommended.  The length of stay is based on the length in which alcohol or drug abuse took place, the presence of co-occurring mental illnesses, or whether or not the patient has previously attended rehab.

Our Inpatient treatment provides a family program where loved ones can attend our facility during scheduled times for counseling and other activities.  For example, family members will be educated on what can be done at home to help the patient maintain abstinence.  This is what helps those around you to avoid causing triggers that could cause a relapse.  Family members are the ones that you have meaningful relationships with and their support can play a vital role in your recovery journey.

Detox of South Florida is consistently regarded to as the best Drug Rehab centers in Florida.

Inpatient Rehab is an intensive treatment program that helps patients to recover from dependency to drugs and alcohol.  Inpatient rehab is what follows after undergoing the process of detoxification.  Patients, prior to becoming a part of inpatient rehab, will first undergo a medical and health examination which will be conducted during admissions.

Florida Inpatient Rehab – Benefits of Residential Recovery Treatment

First and foremost, an inpatient rehab program provides patients with 24-hour medical supervision and immediate access to treatment(s) when needed.  For these reasons alone many recovering addicts choose to participate in this program as the chances for recovery increase since withdrawals and symptoms are managed as they occur.  Another added benefit of inpatient rehab is that patients are provided with a new environment to begin recovery.  Rather than trying to recover at home alone where it's easier to give in to cravings, at Detox of South Florida, our Inpatient Rehab program provides a safe, clean, peaceful, and substance-free environment where patients don't need to worry about temptations.

For some individuals simply being at home is enough for cravings to emerge and managing such urges alone is difficult.  If you're looking for a long-term recovery solution and have determined that you're not able to do it alone than an inpatient treatment program may be best for you.

There are many approaches to overcoming drug or alcohol dependency.  Some attempt the "cold turkey" approach and some choose the outpatient rehab program.  For the rest, the safest and proven-to-work option is chosen; inpatient rehab.  There are many benefits to being in an inpatient program some of which include:

Benefit #1 of Inpatient Rehab - Structure

Patients that are in our Inpatient Rehab program will be provided with a structure for recovery that won't be found elsewhere.  Inpatient rehab programs don't afford patient too much "free time" as we want to make sure patients stay on track during the recovery journey.  Free time is limited as it prevents recovering addicts from contemplating ways to acquire alcohol or their drug(s) of choice.  Furthermore, the less time patients have to think about substances the less likely they are to encounter a relapse.

Detox of South Florida is committed to patient care and is determined to enable each patient to reach their full recovery potential.  This means that providing patients with a structured environment with regimented treatment schedules is paramount to helping recovering addicts with accomplishing the ultimate milestone: Sobriety!

Benefit #2 of Inpatient Rehab - Around-the-Clock Support

Recovering addicts, when becoming sober, will experience symptoms, withdrawals, cravings, and urges.  At home, where you're alone or perhaps even around others that use drugs or alcohol, managing such emotions alone is extremely difficult and in many cases will result in going back to using.  At Detox of South Florida, our Inpatient Rehab program provides patients with 24/7 medical and emotional support to make the recovery process as symptom- and pain-free as possible.

Professional medical attention, emotional support, and treatments are available to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Benefit #3 of Inpatient Rehab - A Substance-free Environment

Individuals in Inpatient Rehab will reside at our treatment facility at "all times" unless approved for outings in which case supervision will be provided.  During the preliminary stages of recovery, recovering addicts are more susceptible to relapsing which is why patients aren't permitted to leave the facility without supervision.  Since triggers or emotions can cause patients to seek out their substance of choice, supervision for extracurricular or group activities that take place of the premises will be monitored.

Patients that are in the "Outpatient Rehab" program are able to return home after treatments which make relapsing easier (since supervision and 24/7 medical attention isn't provided).  This is why individuals who are suffering from addiction that want a comprehensive recovery plan that will ensure they stay on track participate in the Inpatient Alcohol Rehab treatment program.  By far, it's the safest long-term treatment option for recovering addicts that are in the early stages of ridding addiction.

Benefit #4 of Inpatient Rehab - Medical Supervision

Addiction to drugs and alcohol will cause patients to be confronted by unwanted emotions, withdrawals, and cravings during the initial stages of treatment.  The early side effects of ending addiction can be serious and in some cases life threatening (which is why quitting at home isn't advised).  The mental withdrawals alone can last for months at a time and enduring and coping with such symptoms alone is extremely challenging and usually results in a relapse.

Individuals in our Inpatient Rehab program will receive 24/7 medical supervision, counseling, and treatments to combat such emotions.  Having access to medical care 24 hours per day is critically important to a successful recovery and will provide patients with the emotional support needed to alleviate the stress and anxiety that may be experienced during recovery.

Benefit #5 of Inpatient Rehab - Positive Influences

Typically, patients aren't permitted to take or make phone calls and family visitations may or may not be permitted (although will be monitored if allowed).  These rules are in place for a couple of different reasons.  For one, limiting visitation keeps substances from being snuck in to our facility while eliminating the chance of someone outside of the facility having a negative outlook and opinion on recovery.  Part of the purpose of being in an Inpatient Rehab program is to be away from people that are having negative influences on you so we try to limit outside communication.

Benefit #6 of Inpatient Rehab - Maintain Focus on your Recovery

Finding it difficult at home to focus on your goals?  Want to spend more time reflecting on your life, your ambitions, and aspirations?  At Detox of South Florida, in our Inpatient Rehab program, patients will have all of the time they need to review their life as a whole so new perspectives and goals can be established.  Furthermore, in addition to patients being able to focus on their recovery, recovering addicts also enjoy being away from distractions and negative influences that previously prohibited them from spending time on helping themselves.

Our compassionate, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable staff holds the hands of patients to help them through the recovery process and our therapists work with patients in both group and one-on-one settings to provide them with the tools that can be utilized to focus on self-recovery and life goals.

Benefit #7 of Inpatient Rehab - Foster Relationships with new Friends

Individuals in Inpatient Rehab will have the opportunity to meet others and will create new friends and support groups with others that are experiencing the same difficulties.  Furthermore, friendships fosters in our program will be with others who share the same ambition as you and that's to achieve sobriety.  Detox of South Florida provides patients an environment to create a meaningful and powerful support group with friendships that will impact your recovery positively.

Benefit #8 of Inpatient Rehab - On-Site Therapy Programs

At Detox of South Florida, therapy and alternative therapeutic programs are made available to patients to accommodate recovery needs and personal interests.  Some of the many therapy programs we provide include music therapy, equine therapy, art therapy, yoga, and faith-based recovery therapy (just to name a few of the many).

Our therapies are focused on providing patients with an outlet for relieving stress/anxiety while also helping individuals to improve their mental concentration and physical health.  During the recovery process, especially in the early stages of it, such therapies are extremely helpful in easing the symptoms and undesired emotions that most experience during recovery.

Benefit #9 of Inpatient Rehab - Healthy Meal Planning

We understand the importance of nutrition and dieting and how it contributes to one's recovery.  At our facility we help each of our patients to create a balanced diet that will help them to cope with withdrawals while help to restore physical health.

Benefit #10 of Inpatient Rehab - Recovery Tool and Post-Treatment Relapse Prevention

Detox of South Florida ensures that patients achieve long-term abstinence from drug or alcohol use through a comprehensive recovery approach that doesn't end when treatment has completed.  During the process of recovery, patients will be provided with a host of tools and knowledge that can be used for a lifetime to maintain sobriety.  Such tools will help individuals to effectively manage urges or cravings in ways that don't require the substance of choice.  We equip each patient with the tools that can be used anytime and anywhere to prevent a relapse and post-treatment support and counseling will be available.
