Original review: Sept. 11, 2018

I have been in alcohol recovery from Sept. 2016 to July 13 2018, so, about 22 months. I am very involved in AA from the day I went back to NY. I stayed with the 1st 3 steps for 6 months until I found my Sponsor who had a message and knew the program. I did return to my job I left to come to recovery. I was the alcoholic that drank from wake up to bed but was able to do it well.

In July I had thought a couple of beers was going to be ok after much thought. Very soon after, vodka seemed manageable, however, I began right where I left off. 1.75l every other day plus beer. Work got harder, my feelings of fear, hopelessness and being overwhelmed was consuming. I was sick again! I had to make a choice, consequences were coming. I made a choice. Talked with my network and my higher power brought me to this amazing place of Detox of South Florida. Love, understanding and programs. Proper meds, activities, massage therapy, great food and the best Tech advisors, Doctors I never could have imagined are offering my new beginning! Look forward to anyone the wants your peace of mind and true purpose to please reach out!

Detox of South Florida was by far the best experience I have had in a detox setting. Everything was 5 star from the food to the incredible staff. They made every day a good day in what usually is a depressing situation but here it was anything but. The staff went out of their way to make me laugh every day and kept me busy from the corn hole on the back deck the Xbox as well as massages every day. I strongly recommend this facility to anyone who is weary of making this step towards a new life. Big Shout to Deforest, Dj and George!!!

When you first arrive they make you comfortable and treat you like their own. They're extremely supportive and are always ready to listen if you need to talk about something. The staff is absolutely wonderful and they understand that detoxing can be uncomfortable and emotional, so they always keep a positive, uplifting attitude. The food is always good and filling! Shoutout to Jorge, Marc, Sandra, and Chris. They definitely made my detox more comfortable and managed to make me laugh!

The staff here is very caring and takes good care of the clients. I've never been to a facility where the tech staff cares so much about us. Kim and George is one of the best techs here, very caring and a good ear when you just need to venting or needing someone to talk to. The massage here were the best and I felt very comfortable.

Coming into detox was scary and I had no idea what to expect, but the staff at Detox of South Florida really made the transition easier. Everyone is extremely friendly and genuinely care about each and every patient. They offer all kinds of services to help you deal with your individual situation. From counseling, to massage therapy, to medication management, to group sessions. Coming to detox was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made, but it also turned out to be the best decision I have ever made.

Detox of South Florida has been the best detox I've been to. The admission staff makes you feel comfortable from the start. The behavioral technicians are ALL knowledgeable and will go above and beyond to make the detox process as comfortable as possible. The medical staff is very knowledgeable on withdrawal symptoms, medications, and overall extremely helpful to understand the process. The therapists are all always there when you need them and will go the extra mile to help get each person the help they need. I have personally had Tara as my therapist , twice, and I cannot say more good things about her. She really listened to me, and allowed for me to ask questions, which she would always get an answer about. She is absolutely wonderful. Even the directors and owners are available and treat everyone with respect. Detox of South Florida is the ONLY detox my husband and I would return to.

This place is a very clean facility. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The beds are comfortable. Jorge, one of the techs is a great guy and very accommodating! The doctors and nursing staff will also do whatever they can to get you the meds they need within their protocol. My one complaint is that they should allow more personal comforts and freedom. Everyone here is an adult, we should be allowed our own toiletries and whatever other comforts as needed. It would make the experience more comfortable and productive for clients and it would make things easier for the staff, allowing for a more pleasant and productive experience overall.
