The staff is very friendly and lovely…there all very caring and understanding the food is delicious, the place is very neat and organized the staff is very understanding and very helpful so far I’ve had nothing but a good experience trying to get sober I wish luck to anybody else in this journey
The care and support from the Therapist and medical staff was a blessing. From the minute you wake up until the moment you fall asleep in there very well kept rooms you are met with real people who teach from experience. Not once did I feel like a burden or that I was being judged. They Just wanted to help. The catering and the cleanliness are just a plus. I left feeling apart of instead an outcast. The stigma of addiction puts a weight on you that's encumbersome, but with Cura South and Guardian Recovery you can expect to learn how to breathe again and feel human. Thanks Cura South and Guardian Recovery
My first time in rehab I didn't know what to expect. The staff was amazing The therapist had care concern for each client as did staff and the nurses and doctors above and beyond with care I'm so glad thats where I was sent thank you all and God bless Cura South
Cura South is an incredible place. This is my first time in Detox/rehab, and both programs exceeded my expectations. Every staff member is kind and supportive and truly wants to see you succeed in your recovery. I’ve heard horror stories of other facilities being terrible to live in but Cura South, in my opinion, is the best place to recover. They have extremely comfortable beds and warm showers. The food is fantastic too. On top of having a 24/7 snack and drink area they also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. You will not go hungry. The medical staff and therapists are wonderful, they make sure you know what medicine you’re taking and they take time to explain any questions you may have. The therapists really are rigorous with how they plan your recovery. They help you set goals for yourself and they teach classes about addiction recovery, among other subjects, throughout the day. Every night at 7:30pm (except for weekends), they have an AA speaker meeting comprised of AA members around St. Pete. This place should be your top choice if you’re looking to recover from any addiction. I’m so happy with the choice I made and will not forget the people and lessons I learned here. Thank you Cura South!
My nephew would be dead without these wonderful people. Place is so special, can't say enough about the work Billy and Jackie and the rest of them do. Thank you thank you.
Want to thank Bill and staff. My grandson stayed for awhile. It changed his life. Staff was wonderful and caring. Place was clean and felt good.
The facility is super clean, amazing and caring staff and true professionalism through the entire process.
Awesome place!, Everything was amazing and has helped me change my life in a positive way, thank you curasouth
I recently had a friend who went through this place. They had nothing but nice things to say about everything from how clean it was to how caring the staff was. Thank you for all that you do.

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. Guardian Recovery’s Tampa Addiction Center 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 Guardian Recovery’s Tampa Addiction Center 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).

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.

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.

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.

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.
