Addiction Treatment Programs
Treatment Programs That Work with Tried and Proven Methods
For a patient to admit they have a drug or substance abuse program, it takes courage and patience on their behalf. It also takes courage to seek recovery, and then to follow the steps established in the recovery process. At Sprout Health Florida we understand these things and we are dedicated to making sure all our patients receive the very best dual diagnosis treatments available today. Our mission is to help our patients achieve long-lasting sobriety.
We can do this because we understand each patient’s history and how they may have arrived at their addiction. Only the most relative treatment methods are used with cognitive testing and assessment. Our programs are continually updated to provide the means for individuals to come to terms with their addiction problem, and to find new meaning that helps them move forward.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers in Florida
Dual diagnosis treatment provides tremendous value because it helps to locate multiple factors that contribute to a person’s addiction. Many of these additional factors are mental health disorders that may include anxiety, personality disorders, mood swings, and eating disorders. If left undiscovered, these factors can complicate the patient’s rehabilitation process. These are overlapping conditions that can be targeted by dual diagnosis. Specific programs and parallel treatments can work in tandem to help patients recover. It takes a team of trained professionals that include psychiatrists, behavioral specialist, and psychologists for a successful rehab.
Treating Individuals for Drug Addiction
Addiction to alcohol, illicit drugs, or prescription drugs creates addictive behaviors that only trained professionals can properly address. Treatment is provided with an individual approach. Once a person is thoroughly evaluated, a treatment plan can be tailored to their particular drug or alcohol abuse habit. Treatment for addiction is comprehensive. No two people will be treated the same or recover the same. In general, recovery takes time. Individuals are continually monitored during their recovery process to make sure that treatments are working. As such, recovery plans can be updated according to each person’s needs. The goal of treatment is to help the person recover from their addiction and regain complete control of their life.
Many may suffer from a combination of drug and alcohol addiction. Once the patient begins to understand the cause of their addiction, it is easier for them to adapt to their treatment program. It is also necessary to educate families, friends, and associates about addiction and the recovery process. Therapies that can help create a robust support network work best for individuals. This is why cognitive behavioral therapies are so effective in treating addictions and educating their loved ones. They tend to deliver long-lasting results.
The Process of Detox Treatment
Detoxification is always the hardest step in the treatment process. It also has to be the first step. It is the only method that will remove the harmful substances in a person’s body. This is the only way a person can truly begin to deal with their addiction. Withdrawal is the next step as harmful substances are removed. It can be a dangerous process if not done and supervised properly. A person’s body has gotten use to the drugs or alcohol with continued use.
Oddly enough, continued use creates an addiction and an increasing tolerance for the substance. This tolerance creates a withdrawal condition even while the person is still using. The addicted person must increase their dosage, or abuse drugs or alcohol more frequently. The cycle is repeated, over and over again. Thus, an improper withdrawal can be deadly to a person’s physical and mental health.
Inpatient treatment may occur at one of several locations:
- Hospital: If treatment is offered at a hospital, it is likely to be a very serious addiction. Around-the-clock support is offered from medical professionals.
- Residential Facility: These facilities, not hospital-based, do not offer around-the-clock supervision. The facility’s staff will usually offer 24/7 care and access to certain hospital services when needed.
- Luxury inpatient facilities can offer a plush environment that resembles a resort. This tends to be a comfortable stay for those who choose this treatment. Executive facilities tend to provide an environment that benefits professionals on the move. Individuals can maintain their level of work responsibilities while undergoing treatment for addiction.
Outpatient treatment is similar to Inpatient treatment:
- Outpatient treatment offers programs similar to inpatient programs. The big difference is that individuals can return home each evening after treatment. They can get on with their lives, and are usually well on their way to recovery. They simply need to stick to their program and connected for long-term recovery.
