Detox stands for detoxification which you may need if you have been using certain substances on a regular basis. When you use alcohol, sedatives and pain medication several times a week your body can develop a physical dependency on them. If you try to stop or cut back, you can have serious withdrawal symptoms and become very ill. This is when you need help to get the substances safely out of your body so you can work on staying free of them.
An evaluation or assessment takes place when you call for an appointment with a professional substance abuse therapist. You will meet with the therapist at no charge to review what you’ve been using, the amount, length of time you have been using and why or how you started.

If you need specific medical help (detox) or a certain level of substance abuse treatment, the therapist will provide you with all recommendations and or referrals. Whether you choose to work with South Miami Recovery or take a referral to go somewhere else is up to you. There is no obligation or pressure, we are more concerned you get help as soon as possible.
