Detox of South Florida

608 NE 2nd Avenue, Okeechobee, Florida, 34972
Detox of South Florida has comprehensive treatment options.We have many tactics to ensure no stone is left unturned in the recovery process. Detox of South Florida dives beneath the surface to discover the root cause of patient addiction. Many cultivate drug and alcohol addictions to ease issues from past traumatic experiences. Others’ addictions derived from the management of mental health issues such as bipolar disorder, anxiety and depression. We use IV amino acid therapy to replenish the neurotransmitters which are depleted in patients with long term Opiate and addiction. IV amino acid therapy has shown to hasten the detox and rehab from opiates and alcohol. When other psychiatric struggles accompany an addiction, they are referred to as co-occurring disorders. Co-occurring addicts have multiple diagnoses and is a complex treatment process. At Detox of South Florida, we have a strong expertise in the identification of these disorders, and the application of evidence-driven therapy and treatment to address them. The comprehensive treatment approaches offered through our detox and rehab services cover all facets of drug addiction and alcohol dependency, utilizing an informed care model developed in-house to address any chronic pain problems with non-addictive medical supplementation like IV amino acid therapy.

  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term "medical detoxification" means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

    Having spent two weeks at Detox of South Florida, I feel comfortable making this review. The staff that greeted me processed me into the facility promptly, and it was obvious they had my welfare in mind. I was admitted late at night, yet I still received medication quickly. The nurses were always on top of the situation with each client. with medications and each client’s individual’s situation. The technicians who supervised the clients were terrific in that they kept us aware of the schedule. (A great perc was a pack of cigarettes each day). I liked the counselors who had something to say about addiction, which was very welcome.The food was very good, and we never served the same thing twice during my admission of two weeks. I feel I received excellent medical care at the detox. I was given a full blood test, urinalysis, liver scan, and screening for STD’s. I highly recommend Detox of South FL very highly.
