Recovering from addiction is a lengthy process, and it often takes years of reprogramming the brain and body before you completely overcome your cravings. The recovery process is even more difficult when substance abuse has been a central part of the patient’s life for an extensive period of time. It’s never to late to address the problem, though. Many programs begin with a medical detox, and then inpatient therapy, followed by outpatient therapy and ongoing counseling.
Many addiction treatment programs begin with detox under the supervision of trained medical professionals. Supervision is an essential component of managing withdrawal symptoms, and detox personnel may prescribe weaker drugs to keep patients as comfortable as possible.
While inpatient treatment programs vary from facility to facility, most involve a combination of individual and group counseling, as well as other activities that support the recovering addict. At this phase of the recovery process, patients are encouraged to relearn old skills and develop new ones.
Upon completion of the rehabilitation program, residents have several treatment therapies available to them. Our priority is long-term recovery, which is why it’s so critical that clients continue seeking treatment after they leave us.
At the Florida Addiction & Recovery Center, we use a variety of treatment methods – including the 12-step program – to help patients overcome their addiction.
Drug and alcohol addiction takes a toll on both addicts and their families. The best thing to do is to develop a program to accommodate the needs of every patient, which will help maximize their chance at long-term recovery.
Throughout the treatment process, addicts learn how to function without relying on drugs or alcohol. For this reason, we incorporate regular outings into our programs, giving residents the opportunity to practice the techniques they’ve learned in treatment to expedite their recovery.
