Addiction Medicine

Our Founding Physicians have more than 40 years collective experience in healthcare

At Advanced Care Physicians Group, P.A. we are a physician owned and operated Florida DCF licensed Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment facility. We utilize a multidisciplinary and multispecialty practice approach that provides State-of-the-Art-Care.  Our goal is to set the standard for quality of care for men and women suffering from addictive diseases.  Our program is designed to provide patients with not only traditional modalities such as individual, group, and family therapy, but also an opportunity for patients to express thoughts through holistic modalities. These modalities can include art, and music therapy, diet, exercise, sleep hygiene, Tia Chi, culture awareness, and vocational services are just a few.  We believe success in addiction treatment requires lifelong behavioral modification, and should not be viewed as a short-term goal or a quick fix.  Our holistic approach focuses on ways to help the patient develop a stronger sense of self-identity, self-esteem and self-confidence required to maintain addiction free.  Our program begins with psychosocial assessment, medical history and physical exam, in which we gather information to map out your personalized treatment plan.
