Fort Lauderdale Methadone Treatment Program

Regardless to if you’re methadone addiction is “new” or you have been using for many years, you are faced with challenges when it comes to quitting. You may have attempted to go ‘cold turkey’, once symptoms of methadone withdrawal kicked in you ran back to drugs to find some sort of comfort and normalcy.

As the cycle of addiction continues through your life you are placed at a cross road. You can either continue the use of methadone until you pay the ultimate price of your life, or you can stop and get the help you need to kick the habit once and for all.

Enough is enough and you are ready to get sober, but the fears of withdrawal are holding you back. Methadone Detox in Fort Lauderdale  is a safe option that will help you through the beginning stages of your recovery without the fear and pain of withdrawal.

Methadone is a synthetic opioid medication that has been used for well over 40 years to “treat” opioid addiction. Its main purpose is to treat patients addicted to heroin, however it causes an new addiction of its own. It is also commonly used to treat chronic pain, resulting a physical dependency in many patients. Regardless to its use for treatment there are thousands of men and women who develop dependency and addiction each year, requiring methadone detox as centers such as Detox of South Florida.

While many Doctors in Fort Lauderdale will play methadone off as a harmless way to treat heroin addiction or chronic pain, the truth is it is an extremely dangerous drug. In fact it is such a powerfully addictive drug that many of the patients treated with this drug find themselves with a more overwhelming addiction to Methadone than they had with other opioid drugs. This “treatment of choice” medication is simply causing people to trade one addiction for another. Getting off methadone can be far more dangerous than heroin, sending most to detox for treatment.

Stopping Methadone is going to be difficult and painful at times, but continuing its use is going to result in a tragic life of addiction resulting in death. Detox of South Florida has developed innovative ways to treat Methadone addiction through medical detox, allowing patients to gradually wean off the drug until they are able to get to a point of not requiring any of the drug. This medical step down process is effective and has helped thousands to successfully wean off methadone with minimal discomfort.

If you still have a few more questions, take a look at our FAQ’s below:

  • Research studies on addiction treatment have shown that some alcohol and substance addiction treatment and follow-up procedures are more successful than others. At Detox of South Florida, we emphasize on using the best approaches in alcohol or drug detox.

  • Our goal is to ensure that all our patients regain their physical and mental states of health. Our treatment is therefore tailored to address each patient’s unique conditions. The treatment involves a combination of detoxification procedures such as opiate detox, alcohol detox, and heroin detox, just to mention a few, with other intervention procedures such as group and individual therapy, relapse prevention education, after-care planning, and in-house completion programs aimed at ensuring long-term sobriety and prevention of relapses.

  • Every patient has his or her unique type and level of addiction which is why the treatment period will normally vary from one individual to another. While some patients go through a 30-day rehab program, others will require a 60-day or 90-day program to recover from alcohol or drug addiction. The time it takes to recover will depend on the assessment report provided by the assigned medical professional who evaluates your case.

  • As the best rehab in Florida, we believe a relapse should not be viewed as a failure but rather as a sign to help you get back on track by making necessary adjustments to your treatment.

  • Our rates generally depend on the services provided. The overall cost will be determined by factors such as professional treatment fees, facilities, food, and utilities.

  • Unlike other addiction treatment centers across the country, at Detox of South Florida, we take your treatment and recovery process very seriously. Your treatment against addiction is a comprehensive process that may be affected by unwarranted interruptions. All visitations must, therefore, be approved well in advance by the treating therapist. We do this to ensure that your safety, focus on recovery, and stability are maintained at all times. The only visitors allowed are significant members of your family and close friends.
