From 2018 to 2019, over one million Florida residents struggled with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, only around 55,000 received the treatment they needed. Addiction rates and fatal overdoses in Florida have only continued to rise since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, but help is available.

Important Notice Regarding COVID-19:
We are closely monitoring all developments associated with coronavirus (COVID-19) and are taking proactive steps to ensure the health and safety of all patients, employees and the communities we serve. This means some off-site activities and other programs have been postponed or moved to telehealth settings. Your cooperation during this time is greatly appreciated.
Our South Florida drug and alcohol rehab facilities provide a full continuum of care. Clients typically start in an intensive, highly controlled inpatient environment and gradually transition to more independent settings as they progress through early recovery.
Typically the first step of treatment, medical detox allows people to undergo the withdrawal process in a safe, secure environment. During detox, addiction specialists monitor the client’s health and treat any uncomfortable or severe withdrawal symptoms that may occur.
Residential treatment takes place in an inpatient setting; clients live onsite and receive various forms of treatment each day. This level of care is where people begin to learn how to manage the negative feelings, emotions and situations that led them to substance use in the first place. Clients also begin to learn strategies for avoiding substance use in the future.
Partial hospitalization is a step down from residential treatment; it typically provides more independence and free time than a client would have in an inpatient setting. Clients who have fewer medical needs or have completed treatment before may start PHP directly after detox.
Intensive outpatient programs are designed to help clients during the volatile transition back into day-to-day life. Clients live off-site, often in a sober living environment, and return to the rehab facility for treatment each day.
As clients become more comfortable with their recovery, they may step down to outpatient care. Clients live off-site and visit the facility on a part-time basis to receive ongoing therapy. This allows clients to return to their school, career and family responsibilities while still practicing and learning new recovery skills.
The recovery journey doesn’t end after rehab, and people still need support for future obstacles that may arise. After receiving treatment at our facility, clients move into the aftercare phase and gain access to a wide variety of tools that help with long-term sobriety. Clients can take advantage of support groups, alumni services, routine check-ins, relapse prevention plans and many other resources to ensure lifelong recovery.
