Addiction Treatment in Florida

Addiction is a complex behavior, some people consider it an illness. Alcohol or drug addiction, gambling addiction, and other addictions are often characterized by deep, uncontrollable cravings, along with compulsive drug seeking and addictive behaviors that individuals demonstrate, regardless of the consequences.

Although the initial acts of using alcohol or drugs is a willful choice, eventually the drug or alcohol becomes an addiction and an individual’s ability to make willful choices becomes intertwined with a physical and mental addiction, blurring the lines between choice and need, thus rendering many medical professionals and mental health professionals to believe addiction is an illness. This behavior results largely from the effects of prolonged drug exposure on brain functioning.

Because drug addiction as well as alcohol addiction, have so many dimensions and disrupt so many aspects of an individual's life, addiction treatment is not simple. Effective addiction treatment programs incorporate many components, each directed to a particular aspect of the illness and its consequences. Addiction treatment must help the individual stop using drugs, maintain a drug-free lifestyle, and achieve productive functioning in the family, at work, and in society. Because addiction is typically a chronic disease, people cannot simply stop using drugs for a few days and be cured. Most patients require long-term or repeated episodes of care to achieve the ultimate goal of sustained abstinence and recovery of their lives.

Behavioral Addiction Treatments in Florida


Behavioral addiction treatments help clients participate in the treatment process, adjust their core beliefs on drug abuse and drug addiction, recognize their triggers to their addictive behaviors, become accountable for their choices and actions with regards to drug addiction, resolve interpersonal conflicts and recognized marriage and/or family dynamics. Treatment for drug abuse and addiction may consist of a variety of behavioral approaches. The Cove Center for Recovery embraces psychotherapy, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, expressive therapy, trauma therapy, cognitive therapy, and experiential therapy as tools for assisting the recovering individual find solutions for the problems associated with drug or alcohol addiction.

ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAMS IN FLORIDA
Residential Addiction Treatment programs are very effective, regardless of the severity of drug and alcohol addiction. Our South Florida Drug and Alcohol Rehab Program offers a structured addiction program in which clients participate in addiction treatment and reside with the treatment center for a minimum of 30 days or more. All medical, psychiatric, and therapeutic needs are met during the residential addiction treatment program. A core component of a good residential addiction treatment program is one that provides an opportunity for the treatment staff and the client to work together to co-create an individual treatment plan and a solution minded approach to a successful recovery life.

Another important component of our Florida residential addiction treatment program exposes the client to the environment outside the addiction treatment facilites, during the treatment process, allowing the client to process the stressors, triggers, and strengths of the world while still in the protection and structure of a therapeutic environment. Activities such as bowling, movies, museums, shopping, and other outings are a good opportunity to process tools learned in addiction treatment. Relapse prevention education, focusing on identifying triggers to addiction are one of the building blocks of a good residential addiction treatment program. Individual, group, and family therapy are primary therapeutic focuses.

Intensive Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs in Florida typically occur in a private therapeutic environment, with a group of clients who are working on a similar focus. The typical number of therapeutic sessions is 3 times per week totaling 9-12 hours per week. Intensive Outpatient is a step-down program used as aftercare upon completion of a residential program.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs in Florida include a variety of approaches for clients who seek therapeutic interventions in a private therapy setting. Outpatient addiction treatment allows a client to maintain their typical daily schedule while seeking therapeutic assistance in resolving interpersonal conflicts and addiction treatment. The typical duration of a therapeutic session is 1 hour per week. A primary format for outpatient therapy is individual, group, or family therapy. Outpatient therapy is typically ineffective during the initial stages of addiction treatment and is more effective as an aftercare plan, once residential treatment is completed.

MEDICATION TREATMENT

Medication Addiction Treatment. Medication therapy and behavioral therapy, can be important approaches in the therapeutic process. Medication addiction treatment may begin with detoxification, followed by residential addiction treatment and an aftercare plan. An individualized addiction treatment plan that includes a life history, including medical and mental health history can be crucial to a person's success in completing a residential addiction treatment program and securing success as a recovering individual.

Medications can be used to help with different aspects of the treatment process.

Withdrawal. Medications offer help in suppressing withdrawal symptoms during detoxification. Although medications ease a client through detox, it is not a replacement for therapy.

Treatment. Medications can be used to help improve or resume the ability for the brain to function in a health capacity, diminish cravings and prevent relapse.

Mental Health. Medications are used for treating dual diagnosed clients in an effort to alleviate the underlying mental health illness. Mental Health issues, left untreated often result in a client’s continued attempts to self-medicate, leading a client to an inevitable relapse to drug or alcohol addiction.

Principles of Effective Addiction Treatment

According to the National Institute on Drug Addiction (NIDA), “scientific research since the mid–1970s shows that treatment can help patients addicted to drugs stop using, avoid relapse, and successfully recover their lives. Based on this research, key principles have emerged that should form the basis of any effective addiction treatment programs:
Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior.
No single treatment is appropriate for everyone.
Treatment needs to be readily available.
Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse.
Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical.
Counseling—individual and/or group—and other behavioral therapies are the most commonly used forms of drug abuse treatment.
Medications are an important element of treatment for many patients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies.
An individual's treatment and services plan must be assessed continually and modified as necessary to ensure that it meets his or her changing needs.
Many drug–addicted individuals also have other mental disorders.
Medically assisted detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long–term drug abuse.
Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective.
Drug use during treatment must be monitored continuously, as lapses during treatment do occur.
Treatment programs should assess patients for the presence of HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases as well as provide targeted risk–reduction counseling to help patients modify or change behaviors that place them at risk of contracting or spreading infectious diseases.”*
