Rapid detox at Florida Detox has proven to be safe, compassionate, and more scientific than traditional drug detox. We have successfully treated over 3,000 patients from Europe and throughout the United States. OxyContin detox makes up 36% of our patients. Drug Detox is the first step toward successful rehabilitation. You will continue to relapse after Detox if we ignore the new science of addiction. Recent brain research (PET scan) has proven that most "psychological craving" for drugs and alcohol is biochemically driven. Patients with certain inherited brain chemistry "feel more normal" when using pain pills or alcohol. At Florida Detox, we accurately diagnose and provide medical treatment for the biochemical cause of the craving. This craving ceases when brain chemistry is balanced with appropriate medications. We believe in educating the family as well as the patient with the scientific basis of addiction. The family best knows the patient's personality profile and history. When empowered, the family can greatly assist our physicians in providing an accurate diagnosis of any underlying brain chemistry issues which are the cause of craving. Family resentment toward the patient usually subsides after their participation in our "brain chemistry workshop."
