It is easy to believe that one drink or taking "just one pill" will not lead to an addiction. No one believes that addiction can happen to them - it is something that happens to other people. But the reality is, no one is immune to addiction and drug and alcohol addiction affects people from every walk of life. Physicians, lawyers, teachers, truck drivers, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters struggle with the ravaging effects of drug and alcohol addiction. Using drugs and alcohol can destroy every part of your life, slowly eroding your relationships and hurting your career and financial stability. Our Alcohol Treatment Program and Drug Addiction Treatment Center can help you get back your life and enjoy it to the fullest once again.

Like other cities and towns in the state, Tallahassee has a considerable problem with prescription pill mills. Many people in Tallahassee struggle with addiction to prescription drugs. It is hoped that the establishment of a prescription drug database would aloow cooperation between physicians, pharmacists and law enforcement and reduce "doctor shopping" and the epidemic of prescription drug addiction.
It is important to remember that alcohol detox is an important component in breaking the cycle of addiction. Alcohol is not absorbed in the brain in the same way that drugs are, therefore, the detox process is different. Safely and effectively breaking the cycle means having skilled physicians, nurses and other medical professionals available to help you cope with the withdrawal symptoms. We will help you cope with the physical and emotional effects of detox.
