Detox of South Florida has been open for years and in those years they have been so amazing to me as my personal experience. The staff is more than accommodating to all their clients. They handle everything that's important to make a client happy, comfortable, and safe. Massages to biobed and staff members going out of their way. George has worked there since I became a client. he is always there to welcome new clients trying to make them comfortable and trying to make them laugh. Nancy is also awesome. She gave me multiple chances to truly change and get my life in order. I highly recommend if you have a loved one who needs help. Detox of South Florida saves lives for the better and encourages you to change!!!

My first shout out is to DJ (Tech) when I first arrived here, he made me feel so comfortable. He was funny and very respectful young man. He definitely took care of me and my needs. The other techs are awesome. The beds are comfortable and very nice setting in the room. I couldn't believe they had massage lady to massage you, PT man to come to the facility to do PT on you. The bio bed is so good and make you so sleepy feel relax.

This facility is cool and chilled. The techs are hard workers. They always help me out with everything I need to be helped with. The head people are kind, I love how they walk by you and start having random conversations with you. They don't have big heads and think they above you. They care about you here at Detox. If I know anybody who need help, this is first place I recommend to.

My name is Pierre **, this facility is so awesome! I was very blessed to come here outta all of these other facilities. The techs here at DETOX OF SOUTH FLORIDA are angels. They treated me good starting the first day. The nurses are very professional and very caring and nice. This facility give out massages, PT and more. I was very shock when they told me they had all of these things at DETOX. The housekeepers stay on beat with cleaning your room, wash your clothes and make sure you have towels. I recommend this facility to ANYONE who serious about getting clean! This facility won't let you down not one bit.

A really good place, the detox is comfortable. As well as they treat clients per their own needs. Would always recommend to people who desire to recover from drugs or alcohol. The techs they have working there are all respectful. My personal view is that George helps in a way I've never seen done in other treatment centers.

As long as you help them out, they would help you out. The staff are amazing. Most important, they care about your recovery and only your recovery. The doctor and nurses be on the same page, I like how they communicate well and no confusion within the doctor and the nurses.

Omg, these Detox of South Florida staff are the bomb. They are very respectful and care about your recovery. The most MVP at this facility is my counselor Tara. She keep it real with you from the jump. She have TOUGH love. I appreciate every staff tech to the kitchen staff. They treated me like I'm was in 5 star hotel. I love how the facility stay clean top to bottom. The housekeepers really need to be showing love because they do small things behind close doors. Your bed will be made ASAP, as soon you leave the room. They put extra towels for you. They very friendly. The food here is good. I haven't heard one complaint about the food at all. I'm really going to miss my Detox family.

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!!!

Detox of South Florida has treated me very respectfully. BHT George was the first person I seen at this facility and he really made me feel at home.

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.

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.
