The Evoke FLORIDA Team
At Evoke Florida, our entire team is dedicated to our patients and our primary mission is to evoke healing and wellness through proven therapy for you or your loved one going through detox.
The Evoke team is centric to our licensed physicians and nurses, however, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Our team consists of a wide range of behavioral health professionals to pave the road to recovery. Psychiatrists, therapists, counselors and other medical professionals have come together to set the course for recovery. Many of our staff have gone through recovery themselves personally, and as a result, they have devoted themselves to helping you on your journey.
