Frequently Asked Questions

What to Expect
What Can I Expect in Florida Rehab Centers?

Your experience in a Florida rehab center may be unique to your condition, rehab, and motivation. Treatment facilities may vary in what they offer, so be sure the facility you are considering provides the level of care you need.

Most Florida inpatient treatment centers will provide 24/7 care and detoxification services. Both inpatient and outpatient centers will offer evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, and trauma-based therapy. Specialized therapy modules are also provided at AAC’s Florida rehabs and include:

  • Yoga therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Animal-assisted therapy
  • Art therapy

When planning to stay in a Florida drug treatment facility, be sure to bring appropriate clothing. Florida’s temperatures are mild year-round. Some may even offer faith based in Christian rehab options depending on the facility.

Does Florida Have Special Addiction Laws & Programs?

Florida recently passed a bill, HB 807, designed to curb corruption in sober living facilities and rehab treatment centers. This bill:6,7

  • Increases the penalties for those operating without a license.
  • Requires those applying for licensure to provide additional information.
  • Requires accreditation for certain licensures to be issued.
  • Requires the department to conduct background screening on key participants.

Florida also passed the Marchman Act in 1993.7 This act allows a family member to “petition the courts for mandatory assessment and treatment of someone who is abusing drugs or alcohol” or appears to be a danger to themselves or others.7 In certain limited circumstances, this law can be used for adults in emergency situations involving drugs or alcohol.7 However, if you can intervene in some other way, that is always the best solution. AAC’s Florida treatment facilities will work with you on an intervention, which is a gentler approach to getting a loved one into rehab. Florida also enacted the Good Samaritan Act which grants some immunities to health care providers who in good faith provide emergency care during dire situations. 8

Do Rehab Centers in Florida Treat Alcohol and Drug Addiction?

Yes, Florida alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers treat all forms of addiction, including drug and alcohol addiction. While some rehabs in Florida may target specific addiction issues, this is far more rare. Most of the time, you’ll find that Florida rehab centers are certified to treat a wide range of substance use problems and many even offer luxury rehab amenities. According to 2018 data, the top substances people sought treatment for at a Florida drug rehab were: 1

  • Opioids: 10,245 people were admitted for opioids, including heroin.
  • Alcohol: 8,145 people went to a treatment center for alcohol abuse.
  • Marijuana: 4,551 people sought help at a drug rehab for marijuana use.
  • Methamphetamine: 976 people went to treatment for methamphetamine.
  • Cocaine: 937 people were admitted to treatment for cocaine abuse.
Can I Detox in Florida?

Yes, you can detox from drugs and alcohol in Florida. In fact, Florida detox services are available in all 3 types of drug rehab facilities.

  • Among outpatient facilities, 78 offered detox capabilities and 177 provided methadone/buprenorphine maintenance or naltrexone treatment.2
  • 79 residential (non-hospital) treatment centers offered detox capabilities.2
  • Hospital inpatient facilities offered detox services at 56 centers.2

Trying to detox on your own brings with it challenges and risks. For one thing, if you’re coming off a strong substance like opioids, meth, or heroin, the withdrawals can be extremely uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. Some people have severe vomiting and diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration rather rapidly.

At a drug rehab facility, you will have medical professionals assisting you throughout your entire detox process to ensure your safety and comfort. Substances such as alcohol and benzodiazepines can be dangerous to withdraw from abruptly. Although every person responds differently when they go through the shock of not having the substance, your body’s response will highly depend on how long you were using the substance and how much of it you were taking.

How Do I Choose the Best Rehab in Florida?

It’s essential to choose a licensed, accredited treatment facility to ensure you receive proper care. Other important factors to consider include whether the facility can provide evidence-based therapies and demonstrate a proven success rate.

Where & Why Should I Find Treatment Out of State?

Florida is an ideal place to find treatment for substance abuse because of its weather, sober communities, and employment opportunities. Mild weather, sunny skies, and beautiful palm trees is like a tonic for people as they journey to sobriety.

Though it is tempting to stay close to home, sometimes the best rehab is farther away to remove yourself or your loved one from environmental triggers.
