Lowest Relapse Rate


How Does our Drug Detox Center Achieve the Lowest Relapse Rates in America?

At Florida Detox® & Wellness Institute, Dr. Sponaugle integrates modern brain science with wellness medicine to balance and optimize brain function, this stops craving for drugs and alcohol.

lowest relapse ratesOur patients are successful in achieving 9% relapse rates as compared to 80 % national relapse rates because Dr. Sponaugle’s treatment negates their need to abuse drugs and alcohol to feel normal. America’s treatment centers misdiagnose 80 percent of their addicted patients – they fail to diagnose the underlying medical and biochemical disorders that change brain chemistry causing drug craving.

When Florida Detox® patients relapse it is most often because they won’t return for follow up visits which allow Dr. Sponaugle and his staff the ability to finish the job. Others fail to take advantage of our anti-aging, brain and body wellness program, a program that is inclusive for addiction treatment. This program not only stops drug and alcohol cravings, it accelerates the healing of our patient’s brain and body. Our middle-aged patients normally look and feel 10 years younger within just four weeks.

Get Healthy Naturally

lowest relapse ratesBy the end of the anti-aging/wellness program, our female patients effortlessly lose the extra 30 pounds they gained since high school. Our post detox outpatient drug rehab optimizes our patient’s brain function correcting multiple drug and alcohol induced hormonal and vitamin deficiencies, and, it provides detoxification of neurotoxins that accumulate in the brain of all Americans.

These fatty toxins shut down the brain’s hunger center causing food cravings. Many 300 pound female patients who suffered life long weight problems lose 70 pounds within three months from theire detox date. Dr. Sponaugle diagnoses many of these women with an under active nucleus accumbens, the brain region that serves as our hunger and reward center.

These patients eat to stimulate their under active nucleus accumbens, eating temporarily [90 minutes] makes them feel less depression. Patients who suffer obesity because of an under active nucleus accumbens are rarely diagnosed by eating disorder “specialists” because they don’t realize these patients eat to get closer to normal. These patients also suffer SAD, seasonal affective disorder and they tend to eat more in the winter when skies turn gray in northern latitudes.

American women develop more gastrointestinal dysbiosis than men and therefore suffer more accumulation of gut derived fatty toxins in their brain. These toxins accumulate slowly and over time suppress hormonal output and disrupt brain chemistry circuits. This causes the brain’s hunger center to down regulate in activity producing food cravings, especially for foods that contain high levels of tyrosine, like chocolate.

Optimizing Dopamine Activity

best rehab treatmentWhen our wellness center treats the neurotoxicity and optimize dopamine activity in the dopamine driven hunger/reward center, these patients no longer suffer excessive craving for food – furthermore they can metabolize fat at a much faster rate like they did in high school. More importantly, our comprehensive anti-aging program reverses brain and body aging by 10 to 15 years, depending on the age of the patient.

Our facility uses the same protocol to treat Alzheimer’s, Autism and Multiple Sclerosis. We recently used our Alzheimer’s protocol to awaken a 94 year old Clearwater man from his two year cognitive coma. Reducing our patients’ risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease is so important because Alzheimer’s disease has doubled since 1980 – Brain scientists suggest that by 2025 one half of Americans in their mid fifties will suffer Alzheimer’s symptoms if Americans don’t make some necessary changes.
