Treatment Programs Fort Myers, Florida

Sovereign Health of Florida’s location in Fort Myers provides the people of Florida with a peaceful, safe place to recover from addiction, mental illness or both. This location offers effective, research-based treatment programs to ensure a long-lasting recovery.


Detoxification is the process of harmful substances leaving the body. Drugs work by fundamentally rewiring the brain and altering how the brain’s messaging system work. After prolonged use, drugs can teach the brain that it needs the substances in question to function properly. When those substances are no longer being used, the brain and body have to adjust to their absence, creating the often unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal.

The severity of withdrawal symptoms depends on the substance. Withdrawing from stimulants might mean a few weeks of irritability, restlessness and insomnia. Opioid withdrawal is infamous for the severity of its flu-like symptoms. Withdrawing from benzodiazepines and alcohol can be potentially fatal due to seizures, and in alcohol’s case, delirium tremens.

Sovereign Health offers residential detoxification treatment for patients seeking recovery for an addiction. Our controlled, medically monitored detox treatment centers ensure detoxing is both safe and effective, so that the real process of addiction treatment can begin.


Our Fort Myers facility is one of the leading drug treatment centers in Florida. We utilize effective, scientifically backed methods to treat our clients holistically, ensuring they have the best chance at a lasting recovery. These methods include:

  • Psychotherapy, giving our patients new ways of looking at – and dealing with – their problems
  • Individual and group therapy, allowing patients to share experiences with others who have the same struggles
  • Cutting-edge tools like biofeedback and neurofeedback
  • Alternative therapies including yoga, art, and meditation

Also, our continuing care program helps patients once they leave our care and begin rebuilding their new, healthy lives.

Mental health

Sovereign’s Fort Myers facility is not merely a drug treatment center. We also have an entirely separate treatment track specializing in patients solely dealing with mental disorders. Patients in this program receive many of the same, effective treatment modalities our addicted patients receive with a focus on restoring mental health. Talk therapies including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) help patients learn to truly understand their problems and find new ways of dealing with them.

Fort Myers also offers biofeedback and neurofeedback programs, advanced tools with real benefits in treating mental illness. Some of the mental disorders we treat include:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Mood disorders, including depression and bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Schizophrenia

Dual diagnosis

Addiction and mental health disorders often fuel each other. Patients with mental illness may find themselves turning toward drugs for relief, and the cycle of addiction can sometimes lead to a mental disorder. This often leads to the patient having two or more disorders at once, which is known as a dual diagnosis.

Dual diagnosis is challenging to treat –patients and their provider must navigate both the physical and mental symptoms of addiction, withdrawal and mental disorders. Sovereign Health takes a holistic view of treatment. Our programs are designed to treat our patients in both mind and body, and Sovereign’s expertise in treating addiction and mental health give us the tools to treat our dual diagnosis patients effectively.

Sovereign Health is a leading provider of mental health care in Florida. We utilize traditional treatment methods such as talk therapy to give patients new tools to deal with their problems. We also use new, cutting-edge methods such as biofeedback to treat our patients’ symptoms and help them manage their conditions through recovery.
