In Tampa, Florida, like many metropolitan cities, alcohol and drug addiction cases have become overwhelming and difficult problems facing the residents and the government. Because of this fact there are growing number of drug and alcohol rehab facilities within the city and its vicinity that provide treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. Even with all the existing facilities around, for individuals struggling with addiction and their family and loved ones, locating a rehab center in Tampa that offers the specialized care needed is still a difficult task.

Having been in business since 2002 as a private licensed rehab center, the one advice we can offer to anyone in need of such care is to narrow the search for the licensed addiction treatment facilities that in addition to being accredited and licensed to provide the level of care they offer, they have the experienced medical team of doctors, nurses and counselors on staff for all the treatment plans they offer. Although alcohol and drug rehabs in Tampa and elsewhere in Florida are required to be licensed to operate, it does not stop many facilities advertise for more treatment plans than they have experience for.

Rehab for alcoholism, opiates, painkillers, cocaine, heroin, meth, and other substances require specialized care which should start with a complete addiction treatment assessment that is offered at the facility and includes mental health treatment programs. Often referred to as co-occurring or dual-diagnosis rehab program, locating a facility which offers treatment for both the disease of addiction and its related underlying mental health conditions is the required treatment setting for someone who is struggling with substance abuse and addiction.

Whether or not you are considering a rehab program in Tampa or neighboring towns in Florida, keep in mind that the most effective rehab programs offer comprehensive therapeutic services where treatment is offered from detox (when needed) to aftercare. Comprehensive drug and alcohol rehabs are known to provide their clients with individualized therapeutic services which are developed to heal the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the disease of addiction.

If you or a loved one is residing in Tampa, and looking for an in-state rehab facility, consider Florida Center for Recovery (FCR) located across from Tampa on the East Coast of Florida. FCR has been proving medical detox (on-premises) as part of its rehabilitation program for substance addictions since 2002.
