Wellness Residential Detox is by far one of the nicest detox centers in FL. They had a great staff to client ratio. Accommodations were spectacular and the place was clean! The staff was understanding, they conducted a few small groups throughout the day covering light material. Unlike a previous detox center, I went to that forced people to go to groups that were just way too complex for someone detoxing.
