Step 1: The first step to being admitted into a drug rehab center Florida is to call the drug rehab center! They will be able to evaluate your drug use, determine if you need detox, check your insurance, tell you what to pack, arrange your flight and transportation, and more! A drug rehab center Florida has a lot of experience in admitting new patients. You will be given an admissions counselor who will walk you through the steps you need to take in order to be admitted.
Step 2: Pack your bags! The second step to being admitted into a drug rehab center Florida is to make sure you a properly equipped. The center will tell you exactly what to bring, but generally you should bring enough clothing for two weeks (most drug rehab centers will have laundry facilities or a laundry service.) Leave the revealing clothing at home, though. A drug rehab center Florida generally has rules about dressing in skimpy or tight clothes. Take a bathing suit though, it’s Florida! If you are traveling to a drug rehab center Florida in the fall or winter (October through March), remember that even though it’s Florida, there could be some cooler days or evenings. Bring a sweater or jacket and at least one pair of long pants. I’ve seen so many northerners forget to do this when getting ready to be admitted into a drug rehab center Florida! Also make sure you bring your wallet with ID and insurance information. Any credit cards are usually held by the drug rehab center, but they will allow you to use them for certain expenses while in treatment. Same goes for cash.
Things you should leave behind when being admitted into a drug rehab center Florida include:
- Drugs, alcohol, or drug paraphernalia
- Alcohol containing products such as perfume, mouthwash, or hairspray
Ask the drug rehab center Florida for a complete list of prohibited items. Fair warning: Your belongings will be searched thoroughly when you are admitted.
Step 3: Go to treatment! The third step to being admitted to a drug rehab center Florida is to actually go to the center. The drug rehab center Florida will be able to advise you on how to avoid heavy withdrawal symptoms on your way there. Some even advise you to use drugs or drink before you get on the plane or in the car. If you are very physically addicted to drugs or alcohol and you have a long journey, a drug rehab center Florida may send a detox nurse to travel with you.
When you arrive at the detox center Florida, you will be met by an intake counselor, who will then take over the admissions process. They will thoroughly evaluate your past medical history, social history, drug history, and physical state, and other factors to come up with the best plan to treat your addiction.
