Florida Detox Center & Rehab Guide

Detox is defined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as being “a set of interventions aimed at managing acute intoxication and withdrawal.” For those looking to put an end to their active drug or alcohol use, detoxing in a safe, healthy manner is critical in order to prevent dangerous withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk of relapse.

At River Oaks in Florida, we provide medical detox for those patients who are ready to get started on the road to recovery, as do several other facilities throughout the state.

Free & State Funded Detox Programs

Free Detox Centers in Florida

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states that medically assisted drug or alcohol detox is only the first step in long-term rehabilitation and recovery from substance abuse. It is important for people who need help overcoming addiction to stay in treatment for at least 90 days, or three months, and people who continue receiving support through therapy or support groups after detox will continue to improve and maintain abstinence for longer. When many people think of detox and rehabilitation, they imagine luxury resorts with spas and massage therapy, and that, in their mind, equates to very expensive help. Too many people in the US are not able to afford a basic detox center, which may make them feel as though they have no options. Fortunately, there are many free and low-cost detox programs available to help anyone with any level of need get started on their recovery from addiction. Florida, the Sunshine State, offers some great free detox centers for people who need help.
