Tell the receptionist, Detox please, I want my life back.

 Your visits are based upon your progress. You will have visits every 10 days until stable, then every 28-30 days until completion.

 Afterwards, I highly recommend a daily pill, a monthly injection or a pellet under your skin that lasts 6 months to prevent any cravings and relapse in the immediate future.

What about In - Patient Care? Is it better than out-patient treatment?.

ADDICTION is REAL. What was fun during parties, are now Night Mares of your REAL LIFE. What quality of life exists for addicts that are high 24/7, sleep all day and remain isolated from family or friends.  They are unable to process complex or simple concepts which force they to drop out of school or a job. When they awake from their stupor they realize the world has past them by. With their inability to cope with this change they resort back to being Comfortably Numb. This is their life with no visible way out except their next score or DEATH. Ask an addict if they realize the consequences of overdosing and surprisingly their response is; " That is not going to happen to me. I know what I am doing. I am not stupid."  That is a matter of opinion!

  That depends on the severity of the client, their ability to take off work for 30 days, prior attempts, and their true desire to STOP their ADDICTION. With Addiction centers opening every day all across the United States and incentivized by insurance companies paying up to $30,000 for treatment this once isolated treatment community has turned into BIG Business for companies. As we all know, Big Business is not always the Best for your love one. I have personally experienced clients transferred out of the facilities within 24-48 hours. Their stories were horrifying. Some were placed in a room with nothing but a mattress and a bucket for their vomit. They were not given any medications to help treat their symptoms of detoxification termed Cold Turkey. This is extremely painful and the main reason addicts return to street drugs after 24-48 hours.  No one deserves to be treated like wild animals in a cage.

  There are many excellent facilities available. You have to do your due diligence and personally visit the facility and talk to patients alone, without the staff observing your conversation.

Questions should be one word answers if possible.

Example: Would you send a love one here for treatment?

Have you seen a doctor that specializes in addiction while you were here?

When and how often? Are the staff happy?

Were you treated with medication when you first developed symptoms of withdrawal, or were you left

un-attended while you were sick?

Interview the staff regarding daily treatments and activities. Detoxification medications, doctor visits by addiction specialists, activities, meetings and a 12 step program. What happens when the insurance stops payments. Do they come back home, if yes,  what do I do to keep them clean? Will they need out-patient care with a private physician specializing in opiate detox? What do I do?

   Look on www.samhsa.org for a physician near you.

If you live in or near Boca Raton, (Florida) Look no Further.

Sorry Insurance not Accepted.

John P. Girard MD Specializes in Out-Patient Narcotic Detoxification. Certified by SAMHAS and DATA 2000 to perform out patient therapy since the 2000's. He has successfully treated hundreds of clients. His goal is to restore the Life and Happiness back to his clients and family members. The use of FDA medication along with over 30 years of Internal Medicine knowledge, he incorporates several levels of therapy. Breaking the cycle of addiction is not a one pill fits all therapy. The client must be willing to change their life and have family support and proper sponsorship from a leading AA/NA program. These programs are listed on the web and must be investigated before starting a particular program. I have heard of some centers that have drug dealers sitting in or outside the facility looking for their next mark. Never let your guard down, have a family member go with you and they can observe the surroundings. If it doesn't feel right then it is not for you. Don't generalize that they are all the same, ask questions both inside and out of the facility. Then pick the best you can find. Anyone can go with your love one since they are anonymous meetings. Studies have shown that addiction has a genetic  and or a psychological component. Many addicts have underlying Bipolar Disorders and other forms of Depression and Anxiety. A multi-modality approach to treating addiction is usually recommended for continued success.
