The best Opiate Detox in South Florida is available at Empire Detox. Detox is available in outpatient and inpatient detox, depending on the unique situation of every patient, but the primary goal of opiate detox is the same for all: to safely and comfortably embark upon a period of abstinence at the start of the recovery process to ensure the best outcome and minimize the severe risks involved. While detoxification is the goal, it is also important to treat the psychological/behavioral factors that often accompany severe alcohol dependence. Only once you are clean and detoxed, can recovery can begin.
All of this is available to you through the outstanding opiate detox program at Empire Detox. Empire specializes in detox from opiates, alcohol and benzodiazepines, with the most highly-effective medical supervision, comfortable detoxes and closely managed care.

The basic principles of opiate detox and treatment in our South Florida center includes the following:
- Detoxification: it is impossible to treat opiate dependence in a patient who continues to use. Usually detoxification can be done as an outpatient. However, there are usually more situations that indicate the need for inpatient detoxification. There are many medical complications of opiate withdrawal, so a complete physical examination with appropriate laboratory tests is mandatory, with special attention to the liver and nervous system.
- Restricting access to opiates: following detoxification, opiates should be removed from the patient’s home and all family or friends that use them or are heavy drinkers or use illicit drugs should be avoided.
- Learning about the disease model of addiction: Patients should be educated that addiction is a medical illness, not a moral failing, and an opiate addict can never go back to using. Total abstinence is required for healing to occur.
- Treat associated psychiatric problems: Opiate addition may have developed as a self-treatment for another psychiatric or even medical disorder. This is especially true of addicted patients who have used alcohol to treat a:
- Psychotic disorder
- Mood disorder
- Anxiety disorder
- Personality disorder
With the help of our addiction specialists at Empire Detox, Many of these “coexisting psychiatric disorders” have excellent medical treatments, which must be utilized.
