Just as many other people who have suffered from severe pain, ADHD, or anxiety, you know the great need for prescription medications to offer relief. Just as these medications are extremely effective, they are also highly addictive, often resulting in a physical dependency which leads to a full blown addiction if not treated immediately. Many of these drugs also offer psychoactive, or mind-altering effects that cause them to be sought out by drug abusers. Adding to the number of people suffering from dependency and addiction. Many of those who abuse prescription medications are under the false idea that since these drugs are prescribed by a doctor, found in medicine cabinets rather than the street, that they are safe. Any time a prescription medication is used for non-medical purposes it is considered substance abuse, a serious problem throughout the Nation. A 2011 report by the National Survey on Drug Abuse and Health states that 52 million people over the age of 12 have used prescription drugs non-medically at least once.
There are three main classes of prescription drugs that are commonly abused: opioid pain relievers, stimulants, and central nervous system depressants. Each type of drug can cause a physical and chemical dependence, as they alter the way the brain and body function. When abruptly stopping the use of these medications, or even drastically reducing a dose, it can result in uncomfortable, even painful symptoms of withdrawal. These withdrawal symptoms range in severity, some more painful than others, some even life threatening if not managed correctly to ensure the individual’s safety.
Breaking the cycle of dependency can be difficult to say the least, often requiring professional help. The first step in most recovery programs is Prescription Drug Detox. This is the process in which the body is cleansed of the harmful chemicals and toxins related to prescription drug abuse, aiding the patient through the withdrawal period with minimal discomfort. The detox process used is determined by the type of prescription drug abuse, the dose, and the length of time it had been used, as well as the personal needs of the patient, this makes the entire process individualized.

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.
We strive to give each of our clients a positive and meaningful experience as we journey with them towards recovery. Read personal reviews from patients whose lives have changed after successfully graduating from our treatment program.Call Us (863) 623-4923

Excellent treatment overall. I really can’t find any negatives except that I wish they were less busy. I really can’t blame them because they are so popular that people want to come here to get clean. Now the positives: Beautiful place, very very nice people and caring.
