What is a private detox?
Private detoxes unlike public detoxes provide you with a more personal and one on one detox care. In public facilities you may not have the privacy, luxury or comfortable settings or medical options available to you. Private detoxes are not overcrowded. Private detoxes pride themselves on keeping their census low to insure peace and serenity for each client. That is one of the great things about a private detox, is the ability for the focus to really be on each individual and their needs in order to help them to achieve the ultimate goal of sobriety.

The Internet can tell you where and what kind of private detoxes are available to you. While private detox is not as common as public detox there are still multiple options out there and you should find the right private detox for yourself. When you begin searching for a private detox make sure that each individual facility is properly licensed and staffed with 24/7 available medical professionals. There are way too many “hole in the wall” detox facilities that claim to be qualified and they are not.
Plus, you might want to rule out any treatment facility that doesn’t have an online presence. Any reputable company in this day of age invests time and money into their online real estate. Although we don’t consciously think about it having a website or online presence is going to automatically ease your fears of whether or not a company is reputable. If a private detox has no online presence they may not have been around long enough and when your health is involved you want to make sure you attend an experienced and established facility.
You can also check with the Better Business Bureau to see if they are registered, what their ratings are and if they have any outstanding complaints.
You want to attend a private detox that is at least accredited by its’ states health governing bodies. For example, our private detox is certified by the Florida Department of Children and Families for the treatment of substance abuse and mental health services, Joint Commission, Better Business Bureau and has professional medical staff available 24 hours, 7 days a week.
