Fort Lauderdale, FL Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

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.

12 Keys Rehab

Getting sober from Ecstacy, Desoxyn, alcohol or other substances you or your loved one is addicted to takes an individualized treatment schedule. Two options of addiction treatment clinics in Fort Lauderdale can help you succeed: either Residential or Outpatient Rehab. Residential therapy offers long term benefits with longer stays in a perfect rehab facility. From-home plans may be convenient, but lack the soundness and resources of one-month programs to become sober. Ultimately, the decision is your own, and we are here to help you pick the best fit.

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?
