Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

ABOUT ARETE DETOX

Located midway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale in sunny South Florida, Arete Detox provides medically monitored detox and residential treatment for individuals struggling with substance use disorder and dual diagnoses. It's among the 10.9 percent of rehabs in Florida that offer medical detox in a residential setting.

Arete is owned by Delphi Behavioral Health Group, which operates 10 treatment facilities around the country. As such, Arete is among the 52.7 percent of Florida-based facilities that operate as private, for-profit enterprises.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Detox at Arete typically lasts between five and seven days, during which time clients receive 24/7 medical support and medications prescribed both to ease the symptoms of withdrawal and to treat any medical conditions diagnosed by the staff doctor.

Medical care is supplemented by individual and group counseling and recreational activities. Among its medical services, the center offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using Suboxone, for individuals struggling with opioid dependency.

Following detox, clients are encouraged to progress to the residential program, which may last up to 90 days, positioning the center among the 20.8 percent of Florida rehabs that offer treatment lasting longer than 30 days.

During residential care, clients participate in evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing (MI), as well as 12-step programming.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Arete employs a board-certified doctor, nurses, a licensed clinical social worker, a licensed mental health counselor, and a chef.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Photos published on the facility's website show a lounge with a flat-screen TV, outdoors space with ping-pong tables, and a canteen-style dining room. According to a report in a behavioral healthcare trade publication, the facility has 19 beds.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Of the five reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date, three were negative, one was mixed, and one was positive. Three reviewers cited inadequate help from the center's care coordinators. William wrote that the staff would not help him to transfer to another facility, and Steve added: "Care corodanaters are overloaded and dont have time for clients. Also these people are sneaky and tell half truths."

One reviewer, C.B., also criticized the center's amenities, writing: "Don't believe any of the b.s., there are NO LUXURIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS. Nothing to do but eat and smoke."

However, the reviewers also repeatedly praised the center's technicians, and J.B. wrote. "Therapists were the best." And despite some criticism, Steve wrote: "In the end they did a good job getting me sober and tolerating my grouchy butt!"

Arete Recovery has mixed feedback on secondary sites at the time of this writing, with average ratings of 3.2 out of five stars based on 16 reviews on Facebook (where the center can manage its own page) and 4.1 stars based on 27 reviews on Google, plus a five-star rating and two one-star ratings on Yelp.[1] [2] [3]

The positive reviewers repeatedly described life-changing experiences at Arete."Arete changed my life and I am forever grateful. The staff are wonderful people who truly care about each and every client," Riann wrote in a representative comment.

However, other reviewers complained of dishonest practices to get people into treatment, unprofessional treatment once they were admitted, and the center being solely interested in money. "This is a billing facility for young entrepreneurs not a recovery facility. There is nothing good I can say about this facility," Nikki wrote in a representative comment on Yelp.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Of the two reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date, one was negative and one positive. "After 10 years of using, my son went here for detox. Thanks to Arete and their great staff, he is now well on the way to recovery," Ed wrote in the positive review. However, K.M. wrote that their daughter was not given their medication, and that she was discharged without her parents being notified.

FINANCING

Arete accepts PPO insurance policies on an out-of-network basis. The cost of treatment is not available at the time of this writing.

    I just left this facility yesterday & would recommend u run as fast as u can to get away from this place ! I admitted myself and was not allowed to call my wife or check out. They make u sign a contract stating u can not recieve your id or money or clothes untill u stsy another 72 hrs so ur screwed i was treated better in jail. The staff is the most unprofessional people ive ever delt with with the exception of a few techs who in my opinion should be running the place there is no recreational things to do at all !! For the 14 days i was there i was served chicken every night for dinner. They have snacks in the living area but u cant beat the employees to them they eat them all and leave u with nothing. They called my wife behind my back and lied to her about several things almost costing me my marriage i litteraly had to threaten to do physical harm to someone to actually get a private 5 min phone call at which time my wife realised she to was bei g lied to and played !! I can go on and on for pages of the things that happened to me during my stay. Not to mention your safety is in jeporady here cause of the patients threating harm to staff members and others. This is by far the worse rehab i have ever been to and ive been to 3 different rehabs. I only wish i could leave a contact so people reading this could contact me for the truth about this place my story is pages and days long way to much to list on here i am a mature 57 yr old man who relapsed after 10 & a half yrs clean so i think i know a little bit about adduction and how its treated ive been in service with NA & have actually sponsored guys in NA. But we all make mistakes and learn from them. I would recommend u run from this place as fast as u can. TY for reading my review like NA if this helps 1 person it will be worth it !!!

    After 10 years of using, my son went here for detox. Thanks to Arete and their great staff, he is now well on the way to recovery. My dealings with them were always very professional and forthright. I would certainly recommend this facility.

    My daughter didn’t sign a hipa, they didn’t notify us she left. They are keeping her things for 3 days so we have to extend our time in Fl before heading back to NY. They never gave her the synthroid nor any treatment drugs through the night. They told her she didn’t need her thyroid medicine. NEVER NEVER GO HERE!! This is the 2 nd time she was there and this time , new staff and just incompatent all around. Go to The Florida House!! Much success and they truly care!!
