About Fort Lauderdale Hospital

Fort Lauderdale Hospital located in Fort Lauderdale, FL provides a State Funded rehab program. Detailed description details:

Fort Lauderdale Hospital provides a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program for opioids.

Fort Lauderdale Hospital uses a combination of medication, counseling, and behavioral therapy to treat opioid addiction.

Medications used in the MAT include: Buprenorphine; Unlike methadone treatment, which must be performed in a highly structured clinic, buprenorphine is the first medication to treat opioid dependency that is permitted to be prescribed or dispensed in physician offices, significantly increasing treatment access.
Methadone; Methadone works by changing how the brain and nervous system respond to pain. It lessens the painful symptoms of opiate withdrawal and blocks the euphoric effects of opiate drugs such as heroin, morphine, and codeine, as well as semi-synthetic opioids like oxycodone and hydrocodone.
Naltrexone; Naltrexone blocks the euphoric and sedative effects of drugs such as heroin, morphine, and codeine. It works differently in the body than buprenorphine and methadone, which activate opioid receptors in the body that suppress cravings. Naltrexone binds and blocks opioid receptors, and is reported to reduce opioid cravings. There is no abuse and diversion potential with naltrexone.

    Was brought here by cops cuz I had no insurance and because I tried to kill myself. The hospital is kinda dirty and they would not let the mental health patients into their rooms during the day. However if you were detoxing like a few people were when I was there, they would let you lay in your bed all day if you wanted. But overall the staff was great and the social worker was wonderful helping me organize things for when I got out.
