Palm Beach Outpatient Detox in Boca Raton, Florida is South Florida’s cutting edge, outpatient treatment facility, creating a new path to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Steven R. Scanlan, M.D. opened PBOD in 2008 with the goal to detoxify their patients from drugs and alcohol using minimal amounts of prescribed medications. With their straightforward approach to detoxification, they keep patients in their everyday environment, while requiring deep commitment and motivation—thus allowing for more successful results, real recovery and fewer opportunities for relapse.
We have created a new and powerful approach to recovery. Their “less is more” concept of detoxification is embodied in their treatment programs. With a success rate far above the national average, based on standard in-patient programs, their approach is always very personal and is always based on abstinence and recovery.
Steven R. Scanlan, M.D. is board certified in General Psychiatry and addiction medicine, celebrating thirteen years of recovery from opiate addiction. “I specialize in empowering my patients to experience true recovery from opiate, benzodiazepine and alcohol addiction. I am one of few doctors in the country to regularly practice a safe administering of the detoxification drug Subutex®/Suboxone® in proper, non-addicting amounts. I also specialize in successfully detoxing Subutex®/Suboxone® addicts. I have performed well over 1,000 detoxifications in the last few years. I specialize in relapse prevention, dual diagnosis treatment (e.g., bipolar disorder coinciding with opiate addiction), and psychopharmacology, (the study of drug-induced changes in mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior).
Graduating with honors in psychiatry from Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, Dr. Scanlan completed his psychiatry residency training at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital—renowned for being one of the busiest psychiatric emergency rooms in the United States.
Dr. Scanlan adds,“I have served as an attending physician at one of the largest inpatient detox and rehab facilities in the United States, working with patients from their first day of detox up through their first year of recovery. I have also served as Chief Psychiatrist at the Broward County, Florida Sheriff’s Department. I am an active member in the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Medical Association, the American Society of Addiction Medicine and The Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC).”
Our detox facility has a 24/7 on-call system. We are always readily available, creating fewer opportunities for our patients to relapse. Personally taking them to solution-oriented, 12-step meetings, getting involved with the correct sponsor and finding them beneficial support groups are key factors for our patients to stay on the road to a successful recovery.
PBOD offers several different treatment programs—alcohol, opiate and benzodiazepine detoxification starting at $2,000. Detox from Subutex/Suboxone will cost an average of $5,000 due to the amounts of time and attention needed to medically stabilize a patient.
