Florida Drug Rehab Programs

Pharmacological or medication treatment has been validated by scientific research according to the NIDA, to increase retention in recovery programs.  Most individuals who fail to remain in treatment for the duration of the rehab process typically resume drug use and find it more difficult to seek it out again. For this reason, medication that helps patients to stay in the treatment process until they achieve measurable results can contribute significantly to achieving their recovery goals. Florida drug rehab programs provide medical, psychological and emotional support during the recovery process.  Since addiction treatment is a progressive and multi-layered process, staying in a program until it is completed and participating in ongoing support programs, gives recovering addicts the opportunity to achieve sustainable sobriety.

Types of therapy

Behavioral Therapies can be accessed through inpatient/residential treatment or in an outpatient environment that may occur in a one-on-one or group setting.  Treatment models for behavioral therapy include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (Moral Reconation Therapy). According to the NIDA, this therapeutic model help to modify expectations and behaviors related to drug use as well as increase coping skills relative to life stressors.
  • Contingency management utilize a reward or voucher-based system in gives patients he opportunity to gain rewards for each negative drug tests.
  • Individual, group and family addiction therapy also help patients to address various core issues which ultimately manifest in the obsessive and compulsive behavior patterns of addiction.

Holistic Treatment

The severe imbalances caused by addiction affect every area of the individual’s life.  As such, holistic treatment programs have been gaining interest and popularity as an adjunct treatment modality for addiction recovery.  Holistic treatment programs are long standing, time-tested remedies that work synergistically with modern conventional programs to restore balance to the mind, body and spirit.

The combination of conventional pharmacological and behavioral therapies with holistic remedies such as yoga, meditation, acupuncture, herbal treatments and art therapy to name a few, is described as “complementary” addiction treatment.  Today, scientific research supports most holistic practices which have also been proven effective through years of empirical research.

Just as one medication is not right for everyone, the most effective treatment for addiction is determined based on the variable needs of the individual.  As such, recovery from substance addictions has become, through necessity, a customized treatment process.
