Why Choose Florida Detox Centers?

Florida is one of the states that was hit hardest by the recent opioid crisis, as well as a number of other serious addictions. People living in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, or another south Floridian city may be struggling with an addiction as well as how—and where—to find appropriate treatment. We are here to help you locate the best recovery options for your safe drug and alcohol addiction rehab.

Florida detox is often the first choice for those who have been struggling with a serious substance use disorder and need professional help. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, detox is an effective first step for those navigating recovery and learning to put their addictions in the past.

In detox, you can

  • Receive specific medication(s) to minimize your withdrawal symptoms
  • Attend behavioral therapy sessions, often including both individualized and group therapy
  • Start a medication regimen that will make living in recovery easier
  • Learn to cope with the absence of substance abuse and to better handle issues of stress and unhappiness
  • Prepare for addiction treatment following your detox program

After detox, all patients must attend addiction treatment in order to ensure a safe recovery. But this is often the foundation of a treatment regimen, especially when medically assisted withdrawal is necessary.


Drug & Alcohol Detox Statistics

  • 4 percent of Floridian adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 reported having used prescription pain relievers for nonmedical reasons between 2013 and 2014. This number is similar to the national average at 5 percent (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services).
  • The number of drug overdose deaths increased by 46.3 percent in Florida between 2015 and 2016. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this was a statistically significant increase.
  • As stated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, only 7.9 percent of individuals aged 12 or older with alcohol dependence received treatment in 2013-2014.
  • A higher percentage of illicit drug users and dependent individuals (12.6) received treatment between 2010 and 2014, but this was still less than the national average at 14.1 percent.

How Long is Florida Alcohol Detox?

Florida alcohol detox can take different amounts of time depending on a number of factors, including

  • The severity of one’s withdrawal symptoms
  • The intensity of one’s dependence on alcohol
  • Whether or not the individual has been through treatment before
  • The treatment options that are used

Sometimes, alcohol withdrawal can be uncomplicated and only take as long as a week or so for detox to conclude. However, there is also a highly dangerous form of alcohol withdrawal known as delirium tremens. As stated by the National Library of Medicine, patients may need to be sedated for a time in order to go through these symptoms smoothly, and this can make alcohol detox take longer. Essentially, it comes down to choosing the right program and allowing detox to take as long as necessary. Take the first step on your road to recovery by calling 850-427-6486(Who Answers?) today.

How Long is Florida Drug Detox?

There are many different types of drugs, which is why Florida detox may take a longer or shorter period of time, depending on your situation. However, there are several factors that will generally make withdrawal longer, such as

  • Addiction to more than one substance
  • Severe withdrawal symptoms like those associated with benzodiazepines
  • Mental or physical illness either associated with or occurring simultaneously with one’s addiction
  • Addiction to stimulant drugs

Generally, people who are addicted to stimulants will require more time in detox because the symptoms can be long-lasting and difficult to manage. This may take months. Some individuals, especially those dealing with opioid detox, may be able to go through the process in as little as a week or two.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in FL

Choosing between inpatient and outpatient Florida detox centers can be tricky, but remember to ask yourself what you will require in order to feel safe during detox. You may want to choose inpatient care if you

  • Require 24-hour surveillance
  • Are likely to experience severe withdrawal symptoms
  • Are afraid you will relapse back to drug abuse
  • Do not have a safe environment at home that is conducive to recovery
  • Are suffering from dual-diagnosis (including mental disorders)
  • Do not have a strong social support group of friends and family members at home

Any of these scenarios make inpatient care a necessity. However, if you believe outpatient care will better suit your needs, it is important to choose the program that will make you feel most comfortable.
