I seriously cannot say enough WONDERFUL things about CuraSouth! I was greeted so warmly by the nurse manager, Jessica, and that helped put my son and myself at ease. I just knew that my loved one was in a helpful and truly caring environment. This was evident when my son completed treatment and could not stop telling me how great it was there. Being in treatment before, my son knew how other centers treated him and he said nothing compares to the staff there. My son wanted me to thank all the nurses, clinicians and techs!
Amazing facility!! You wi not be disappointed. Great caring staff. Clean facility. Good food.

Great rehab with very caring staff. Mocha, Mike and Keisha were AMAZING. Jackie and Billy are great as well!
CuraSouth Staff,I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the care and support I have received during my time at CuraSouth. From the moment I arrived, I was met with kindness, compassion, and professionalism. Your dedication to my recovery made a profound difference in my life.Specifically, I want to thank all of you for:The expertise of your staff: The therapists, nurses, and counselors at CuraSouth were knowledgeable, attentive, and truly invested in my progress. They challenged me while also providing the support I needed to succeed. Mocha you are missed!The supportive environment: You created a safe and welcoming space where I felt comfortable sharing my struggles and working towards my goals. The camaraderie among the staff and other patients was invaluable to my recovery.The individualized care: You took the time to understand my unique needs and tailor my treatment plan accordingly. I felt like I was more than just a patient; I was an individual with specific needs and goals.Thanks to your care, I am now on the path to a healthier and happier life.

My experience at CuraSouth was nothing less than Great. The facility is absolutely beautiful and well cared for. Rarely will you find a staff that invests so much time into its clients. As a gay man I was supported and felt cared for unconditionally. My therapist Lauren was wonderful. She was thoughtful nonjudgmental, and kept in close contact with my family as if it were her own. I’ll be forever grateful for Lauren, Jackie, Billy, Mocha, Kecia, and Desiree for everything they’ve done. Lastly, the medical team was great. I never felt like my needs were unheard. ❤️

Not all treatment centers are the same. From the moment I arrived I felt safe and comfortable. The staff is amazing! From the people in the kitchen, housekeepers, the techs at the front desk, nurses, doctors and the therapists are just great. Billy cares about this place and his crew and it shows in many ways. When it was time to leave, I felt like I was family. The facility is very clean and the food is wonderful. I have no complaints and recommend Curasouth to anyone or your loved ones seeking help! Thank you to everyone very very much!

Highly recommend! They care about their patients and make sure it’s as comfortable as possible. Very nice and new/clean facility. The staff really cares and takes care of you.
Excellent experience . If at all familiar with immersions in Fort Lauderdale this is a wonderful re creation of its method and clinical insight, and owned by the same company; therefore delivering consistency in customer service and care. Amenities are top notch, staff are all professional and highly trained in addiction. Nursing staff is so very thorough in their assessment you truly feel well cared for in such a stressful time or period in your life. Activities are limited so bring a good book or two. Make use of the groups they are all very informative. I would gladly reccomend Curasouth to anyone who is seeking treatment for themselves or a loved one. Jackie the clinical director and Billie the director of operations go above and beyond to ensure each client feels recognized and reached their true potential and purpose. The. Behavioral techs mocha,Kecia, Sharon, genta, and lead tech John are all assets to the amazing team. Thanks so much for the excellent care .- christian

My mom went to Cura South in February and went to a residential after. She since has started drinking again and is now back at Cura South. They are so wonderful not just with the patients but also with the families. They greet me by name every time I call when I don’t even say who I am. They answer all of my questions no matter how silly they may be and truly care. I feel relieved knowing my mom is somewhere that truly cares about her well being! Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to make me feel comforted knowing she will be ok! I highly recommend this facility!

The staff was polite and professional. I was cared for well with kindness and patience. The therapies were excellent and opened my mind and heart to understand more about my disease and realize that I needed the help and wisdom of a community to find sobriety and reclaim my life. Detox is only the beginning of my journey.
This was a great and clean facility. The faculty and counselors were all very attentive and helpful. I would recommend for anyone.

Everyone here is very nice the place itself is very nice, there’s good food good beds and good people. Unopened vapes are a necessity, not having a vape all the time is aggravating but it’s not horrible. I was taken very good care of and recommend to anyone who needs help taking the first step

From the time I arrived at CuraSouth, I was greeted with a warm friendly smile. I was nervous not knowing what to expect since I’ve never been in a rehabilitation facility before. I have been treated with the upmost respect and the staff is nothing short of amazing. They make sure while your stay here is as comfortable as possible. They have a counselor here at CuraSouth named Mike. Mike is an amazing counselor and really digs into the issues that has caused your addiction. If you are struggling with addiction or know someone struggling with addiction, I highly recommend CuraSouth. Coming to CuraSouth was the best decision I could have ever made to begin to get my life back.

My daughter, Stefanie D.,was admitted to your detox program approximately 2 weeks ago. Last week she tranferred to your residential treatment program in Delray Beach. Stefanie has quite an extensive history of detox and residential treatment over the past 15 years with a number of highly rated substance use disorder programs both in Florida and out-of-state. Over the course of those 15 years, she has never so enthusiastically expressed the amount of sincere gratitude for the treatment she received until her current experience in detox at Cura South. Each time I speak with her, she makes a point to tell me (over again) that Cura South is the best detox she has ever been to. Stefanie told me that her interactions with Cura South staff made all the difference regarding her renewed hope and willingness to re-engage in treatment one more time. Thank you all so much!!Sincerely,Karen Barwick

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We work with most major insurance providers. We offer free no-obligation insurance benefit checks for those who are interested in our program. Our admissions team will speak with your insurer and get a detailed verification of your insurance benefits and share those details with you. Unfortunately medicaid and medicare do not cover our facility.

Click here to find out if your insurance will cover your recovery.

CuraSouth facilities are located in the Southeast United States. Our first facility to launch is based near Tampa Bay, Florida at:

405 7th Ave SW
Largo, FL 33770

In many cases, traveling out of your home town is the best option for treatment. The temptation to leave early and return to substance use is much lower when you are away from the people and places that are associated with your substance abuse. CuraSouth offers a complimentary car service for individuals in the surrounding areas who are interested in coming to the program. If you are traveling out of state for treatment, we are able to help coordinate a flight and reliable transportation to/from the airport.*

 
*Please note — the cost of transportation services such as airfare are the financial responsibility of the client. 
Admissions is quick and easy. Once you call our admissions team one of our dedicated treatment advisors will perform a pre-assessment over the phone . This takes about 10 minutes and just makes sure CuraSouth is the best fit for you or your loved ones individual needs. After the assessment we will verify insurance benefits and arrange a time for your intake (this can be as quick as 30 minutes from the initial call). If you need a ride to the facility we will dispatch one of our drivers and you will begin your recovery at our facility. It is that easy. To get started call us 24/7 at (844) 904-1778.

Once admitted to our program, clients are encouraged to complete a Release of Information (ROI) form for friends, family, employers, etc. Due to HIPPA laws we are not allowed to confirm or deny any patient’s attendance at our facility without a signed release of information. These laws are in place to protect the privacy of those who are seeking help. If your loved one did not complete an ROI, what we can do is take down your name and information as well as any message you have. If the person you are needing to contact is at our facility we will make sure they receive the message as soon as possible and ask to set-up a ROI for you.

We offer programs lengths individualized for each client. Generally detox is anywhere from 3-7 days. These are estimates and are adjusted to meet the needs of the individual client.

During detox access to laptops and cell phones are restricted, after detox they are allowed. However, special arrangements can be made for individuals who need to conduct business or important personal matters during detox. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours.

We accept adults ages 18 or over.

While we strongly discourage leaving before treatment completion, we are not a lockdown facility. Clients are in our program voluntary and may leave when they want.

Clients who need to take off work to attend treatment may be eligible for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA ensures that you will not be terminated while taking a leave of absences from work to attend treatment. Our admissions and case management staff can help with setting up any FMLA paperwork. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours.

We do offer private bedrooms, however these rooms are on a first come first serve basis.

Yes. Tobacco products are allowed in our facility. However we do not allow electronic cigarettes (vapes).

Absolutely. We understand that addiction affects the entire family system and encourage families to participate in their loved one’s treatment. To help families recover we also offer intervention services, case management, and family workshops.

If you’re wondering if you or your loved one needs treatment chances are someone needs help.  Before admission into our program we offer a pre-assessment to determine if clients meet criteria for admissions to treatment. To complete a complementary pre-assessment please call our admissions team at (844) 904-1778

Yes, we offer medication assisted treatment (MAT). During detox, medication is used to ease withdrawal from the drugs or alcohol that clients have been using. The types of medication used are determined by our medical team based on the needs of the client. Common medications used for opiate detox are suboxone and clonidine. Alcohol and benzodiazepines are commonly detoxed using librium, gabapentin and baclofen. If you have questions about detox medication please contact our admissions team 24/7 at (844) 904-1778.
