Tamarac experiences problems with substance abuse and addiction, just like any other city in Broward County and Southeast Florida.
Broward County has the second highest heroin death toll in the state after Palm Beach County, with 180 heroin-related fatalities.1 Further, fentanyl was responsible for 146 deaths in Broward County.1
Medical detox is one of the safest options for people recovering from addiction to substances such as heroin, fentanyl, and alcohol. Medical detox helps you withdraw from drugs and alcohol in a safe clinical setting while receiving 24-hour medical care and supervision.3 Detox is only the first step on the continuum of substance abuse care. It is not a substitute for comprehensive addiction treatment services received at a Florida rehab center or elsewhere.

Medical detox treatments vary from one another depending on factors such as the substance being used and the patient’s medical history. Detox for opioids might involve specific, FDA-approved medications, such as buprenorphine and methadone, to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, while medical detox for marijuana may utilize various symptomatic medications to manage withdrawal.4 Medical management of acute alcohol withdrawal can help reduce the risk of delirium tremens, which is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal characterized by confusion, hallucinations, and seizures.5

SB is an unbelievable treatment center. I would recommend this facility to anybody struggling with addiction and mental health. This program is strong for substance use treatment but it is rare to find such high quality treatment at this level of care for mental health as well. SB has a great clinical program with an innovative and creative approach to treatment. The sober living is also state of the art and the staff from the top down are excellent in creating a comforting and inclusive environment to people who come in to treatment really struggling.
Before entering into a rehab facility, it is important to consider what type of facility is best suited for your individual needs. Traditionally, there are two types of treatment facilities: inpatient and outpatient.
Inpatient treatment programs are beneficial to several different kinds of patients. Inpatient programs (where the individual lives at the facility) are a good choice for someone with a physical addiction, or someone who lacks support at home. Outpatient recovery program facilities are a good option for those struggling with a strictly psychological addiction who wish to maintain their regular lives while undergoing treatment.
Individuals who fall into certain demographic groups can look for rehab facilities that specialize in treating people from the same background. Many facilities treat teens, people of certain minority groups, and others who have unique treatment needs.What Are the Signs of Drug Addiction?
