Why You Should Choose A Heroin Detox in Florida Before Considering Your Hometown

Yet again, heroin abuse has become an epidemic in the United States. Combined with an increased abuse of other opioids like painkillers, these drugs have put a tremendous strain on the entire addiction treatment industry. This is an important issue because treatment from a professional treatment center still stands as the only reliable way for a user to beat their addiction.

To combat these current issues, the country is seeing an expansion in the treatment industry. Even with this ongoing expansion, South Florida remains the “rehab capital of the world.” There’s a lot of reasons why rehabs in South Florida have been able to establish such a strong reputation not only in the U.S., but also throughout the world.

Notably, there are reasons that seem to standout above the rest. First, South Florida rehabs are able to draw from the top counselors and clinicians from around the globe. Collectively, these people are changing the addiction treatment industry with their insight and ability to innovate in a space that has long needed new ways to treat patients. The addition of behavioral treatment models and holistic treatment methods has given South Florida’s best counselors and clinicians the tools they need to truly set patients on the road to recovery.

The second reason South Florida rehabs stand above the crowd is the emphasis they put on being full service treatment centers. These days, it has become quite common to see South Florida addiction treatment centers that take a patient from detox to counseling, all the way through some meaningful aftercare programs. It doesn’t take much effort to understand this provides and unprecedented level of continuity of care. When a treatment facility has the ability to get involved with the patient at the very start of the treatment process, detox, it can only help the entire process move along smoothly.

While we are on the subject of detox, it would be remiss if we didn’t emphasize it’s importance to the person with a heroin or opioid addiction. It doesn’t take long for users to develop a significant addiction to these types of substances. As bad as the side effects of heroin abuse can be, the withdrawal symptoms can be just as dangerous. A good detox program allows people the opportunity to eliminate cravings and clear their withdrawal symptoms with minimal exposure to pain and discomfort.

The Benefits of Seeking Detox Treatment in Florida

When someone is suffering from an addiction, they will eventually get to the point where they have to make that all important decision. We are talking about the decision to stop using and get treatment. If convenience were the only thing that mattered, then it behooves drug users to simply check into one of the local treatment centers. With that said, should convenience really be considered the basis for making such an important decision? Here’s a few more important things one should consider when choosing an addiction treatment center:

  • Quality of care
  • Ability to eliminate distractions
  • Treatment environment
  • Amenities
  • Financial resources

While all five of these would create a reasonable basis for choosing a rehab, we want to focus on the first three.

Quality of Care

As we indicated above, many of the nation’s best addiction counselors and clinicians are working in South Florida. One would think that most every person trying to beat an addiction would want the best care they could afford. Unfortunately, there’s far too many rehabs and detox centers in local communities that lack the proper resources. The facilities are impacted and the counselors are overburdened. With access to the best treatment resources, South Florida rehab and detox facilities are better able to effectively address the needs of all patients. In fact, they have the resources that allow them to customize specific treatment plans. Imagine that, each patient getting exactly the care they need.

Ability to Eliminate Distractions

It might be convenient to seek treatment in a local community, but doing so creates a significant problem. A local community is exactly the same place people develop their addictions. This is where the dealers live and where people hang with other users. This is exactly the wrong place to try and get treatment.

Another related issue involves the personal problems drug users create in their lives. This include some of the following:

  • Relationship and family problems
  • Problems at work or school
  • Financial problems
  • Legal problems
  • Overall health problems

These are all things that can serve as significant distractions. A successful treatment program demands focus and commitment. Trying to deal with people, places and things as part of the user’s collateral damage will certainly affect one’s focus. The effects of these things can be minimized by temporarily heading to South Florida for treatment.

Treatment Environment

There’s a reason people head south for relaxation and recreation. It’s the same reason South Florida is such a terrific destination for addiction treatment. We are referring to the weather and amenities. Year round, South Florida has some of the best weather in the nation. The area also has beach and lake communities abound. It’s in these areas that treatment centers can flourish. They can do so by providing visitors with a calm and peaceful environment within which they can get treatment. When stress is eliminated, the detox and treatment process just seems to go much smoother.

The end-goal of both detox and counseling are single-minded. Treatment is only a success if the patient has the opportunity to establish a lasting recovery. Setting financial considerations aside, there’s too many compelling reasons for people to travel to South Florida for addiction treatment. Convenience is the only reason to stay local.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
