Tamarac Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

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 patients can:3

  • Receive medications that relieve withdrawal symptoms.
  • Overcome physical dependence on drugs and alcohol.
  • Face a lower risk for withdrawal complications.
  • Recover in a safe environment, away from drugs and alcohol.
  • Achieve improved physical health.

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

    More Info
    Get Info on Tamarac Treatment Clinics Tamarac, FL is a diverse community within Broward County in the south of Florida. It has a population of over 60,000 and the 51st largest Columbian-population area in the United States, as well as the 32nd highest percentage of Jamaicans in the United States. Almost 30 percent of the population of Tamarac is under the age of 25, according to the 2010 US Census.
    The cultural diversity and youth population of Tamarac result in a unique and vibrant community; however, it also contributes to the levels of substance abuse in the area.
    Differences in cultures can create isolation in individuals, and young people are often more likely to experiment with illicit drugs because of peer pressure than the rest of the population. According to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the rate of illicit drug usage among college students was 22 percent.What to Look at Before Going to Rehab

    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?

    Look for these signs in a loved one to determine if they have an addiction:

    • Decreased performance at school or work
    • Lack of interest in personal appearance
    • Obsession with acquiring or attaining the substance
    • Erratic behavior
