Fort Lauderdale Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facilities

Like many other cities in the U.S., Fort Lauderdale, Florida faces its share of problems with drug and alcohol abuse.

In 2016, the primary substance people aged 18 and older sought treatment for in Broward County was alcohol, which accounted for 28% of all treatment admissions.1

It can be devastating to suffer from a drug or alcohol addiction. Thankfully, specific medications and therapies can be used during detox and addiction rehab to help you on your road to recovery. Medical detox is the first step in the process of overcoming several types of physiological dependence. Not everyone requires medical detox, but it is essential for someone who is addicted to alcohol or sedatives, such as benzodiazepines, since these substances have potentially fatal withdrawal syndromes. Many people who struggle with opioid addiction also find medical detox helpful, as it can relieve the painful withdrawal symptoms.

Following detox, you will transition into an inpatient or outpatient rehab for ongoing individual, group, and/or family therapy to help you address problems related to your addiction. Your treatment team will personalize your treatment plan to meet your individual needs.

When you are ready to get help you can browse our directory to find a rehab in Fort Lauderdale or a location of your choosing and begin your journey to a healthy life.

Gerry Brown

Founder and President U-Turn For Christ - Gold Hill

Pastor Gerry Brown comes from a family of fifteen brothers and sisters, and is therefore family oriented. After many years of struggling with the sin of addiction, finding himself in divorce court with a Judge warning him that he was about to ruin his life, he agreed to do whatever his lovely wife Peggy wanted for him to get his family back. Peggy’s one requirement was for Gerry to attend church with her. Gerry agreed, not realizing God would get a hold of his heart and change his life forever. That was over twenty years ago. Today he is the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Romoland and also the founder and President of U-Turn For Christ. His unique shoot-from-the-hip style of teaching gets right to the heart of the matter, and the meat of the Word. His powerfully unique style of delivering God’s Word will both challenge and encourage you to new levels of maturity in your walk with Jesus, as we draw from God’s design for living, and discover new insights to God’s “Truth and Love in Action”.

An Overview on Fort Lauderdale Treatment Programs
Like other major Florida cities, Fort Lauderdale has been working to find solutions to the problem of prescription drug abuse. Fort Lauderdale drug rehab programs have treated many of the city’s residents for addictions to oxycodone, hydrocodone and other habit-forming pain medications.

Multi-disciplinary treatment programs combine psychosocial strategies with pharmaceutical therapy and behavioral modification to help their clients achieve long-lasting recovery.

A Guide to Enrolling into a Recovery Program

According to the Miami Herald, oxycodone accounted for more Florida overdoses than any other drug and played a role in 1,500 deaths in the state in 2010. New legislation that prevents doctors from dispensing oxycodone in clinics and offices may prevent some of these tragic events, but opiate addiction continues to affect many residents of Fort Lauderdale.

When you enroll in a Fort Lauderdale treatment center, you’ll be assessed by an intake counselor or case worker who will determine which recovery services would be most effective for you.

Medication therapy has offered valuable support to many Fort Lauderdale residents who are trying to overcome opiate addiction. Naltrexone, which is prescribed under the commercial names ReVia and Vivitrol, is an opiate antagonist that reduces the pleasurable effects of opioid prescription drugs. When you take naltrexone orally (as ReVia) or through monthly injections (as Vivitrol) you may find that it’s easier to deal with cravings and concentrate on the psychosocial aspects of recovery. According to PubMed Health, naltrexone should be taken in conjunction with counseling and group therapy in order to produce long-term results.

Which Is More Effective: Oral or Injectable Naltrexone?

Naltrexone is available in oral and injectable forms for the prevention of relapse during opioid addiction treatment. So how do you know whether taking naltrexone as a daily pill or as a monthly injection will be effective for you? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Can I remember to take pills regularly?
  • Am I motivated enough in my recovery to take pills?
  • Would a monthly intramuscular injection be easier to handle?
  • Can I accept the risks associated with naltrexone injections, such as infection, inflammation and irritation at the injection site?
