How We Help?

SLO Recovery Centers, a Florida drug rehabilitation, provides comprehensive drug treatment, specializing in meth addiction. The treatment center offers both inpatient and outpatient services. Given the severe withdrawal symptoms of meth, most people will opt for inpatient drug treatment. Inpatient, although requiring a 28 day or 30 day stay, provides intensive attention to withdrawal symptoms, underlying core issues and in-depth relapse prevention. At SLO Recovery Centers we treat people differently. We take an extensive approach to treating meth addiction by processing emotions, feelings, abandonment and other underlying core issues that most addicts seek to avoid with drug usage. We provide individualized treatment planning and understand that meth addiction, similar to other addictions, requires more than a crash course on the 12 steps but rather an in-depth emotional journey towards self-love. At our rehab center in Florida, we provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to helping a client overcome meth addiction.
