rehabilitation-guidance-imgt52esHave you been struggling with drug or alcohol addiction for a while now? Has your doctor recommended you admit yourself to a detox center?

If so, and you live in south Florida, you may not know much about detox centers in that area, yet still want to stay at one of the best.

Follow these tips for finding a good detox center in the south Florida area, and you could end up in an effective program that could help you get away from your addiction.

Ask your doctor for recommendations — Your doctor will probably recommend several detox center treatments but, in case she does not, be sure to ask for a list of local facilities and ask which she believes would be the most effective for you.

Look for online recommendations — There are many places online where you can now read reviews for detox centers all over the country. These reviews were either written by former patients or by their family members, and can tell you a lot about each detox center.

Find out what the treatment programs are like, if patients felt they were effective, if there were any problems and how much each treatment program costs. Call the clinics that get good recommendations and ask to make an appointment to see an admissions officer.

Admissions interview — Take a family member or friend and spend a few minutes in an admissions interview for each clinic you may be interested in signing into.

Ask questions about the specific treatments, the expected results, the typical time spent in the clinic and how much each program costs. After you have attended a few, you can then make a more informed decision as to which of the programs is likely to be the most effective for you.
