Lauderhill, FL, in Broward County, sees its fair share of sun and tourism, just like many other Floridian cities. Sadly, it is also plagued by substance abuse and addiction.
According to a 2012-2014 report, more than 308,000 people aged 12 or older in Broward County reported past-month binge alcohol use and about 106,000 people reported marijuana use. Further, nearly 53,000 people in this same age group reported past-year abuse of prescription painkillers.1 Chronic substance abuse can lead to physiological dependence and addiction. Once someone is addicted, it can be extremely difficult to quit using on their own, which is why professional detox and addiction treatment can be beneficial.
Detox is a group of interventions, such as medical care and medication, aimed at managing withdrawal symptoms while the body rids itself of all traces of the abused substance. It is a way to stabilize the patient before they begin their intensive addiction treatment; it is not a substitute for substance abuse treatment, but rather an initial step toward sobriety.
In many cases, rehab centers near Lauderhill begin with detox in the same facility, but at other times, rehab begins only after a person has already gone through detox in a program designed specifically for this purpose.4 Either way, it’s important to find a program that can adequately address all of your needs.

I definitely learned a lot here. All the staff members were courteous and kind. I didn't have a bad experience with anyone. The biggest thing I learned was from Demitrius, that I don't want to take my life and my ideas to the grave because of addiction. I know I can do it by letting go fear. I went to the 12 step meetings. Mattie and the TA's were a great help to me by being concerned for me and helping in any way they could. Overall it was a good experience.
Wide array of treatment options, some very good staff and counselors. The kitchen staff was very accommodating to my special dietary needs. They were helpful in setting up aftercare and have been good in following up with myself and family. Good techs and counselors offered a variety of treatment options to explore.

Unless one has been arrested for a drug-related crime and ordered to undergo treatment by a judge, there is virtually no way to force someone to enroll in rehab. The decision must be made by the addict. Sometimes, this may require intervention by a family member or a mental health professional, because in most cases, the addict is not prepared to give up their addiction.
Once intervention has been successful, it is important to explore the full range of treatment options and features, including:
Because each individual's situation is different, a treatment program must usually be designed for a specific case in order to have long-term results.Relapse and Community
It is not unusual for a recovering alcoholic or addict to backslide. Sometimes, this is temporary; recovery is an ongoing process for most. However, an 2006 article in the journal Addiction reports that recovering addicts who have strong family relationships and a social support network are the least likely to relapse after completing a treatment program.Picking a Treatment Facility in Lauderhill
