Lakeland Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Is your life being taken over by alcohol or drug addiction? Do you feel like you are in despair? Are you hopeless?

Hope is still there. You cannot control the fact that you suffer from addiction. It’s imperative that you seek the help for your addiction that you deserve. The help is out there. The only thing you need to do if you are a drug addict or alcoholic in Lakeland is to call (352) 771-2700.

Though it takes courage to ask for help, there is no shame in it. It also takes courage to seek treatment for your addiction and to begin a pathway to long-term recovery. It’s not only a selfish and cowardly thing to do when you don’t ask for help, but it will also send your life falling in pieces around you. Letting substances control your life is definitely a good way to send your life crumbling around you. For alcoholics or addicts, substances all lead to the same place, and that is a place of complete destruction.

Medical Detoxification

For any patient who is addicted to a substance, detoxification may be necessary. Eliminating harmful substances from the body is the first step to recovery.

Before they can begin rehabilitation programs, patients that have become dependent on any of the following substances and/or medications might be in need of detoxification:

  • Alcohol
  • Narcotics (codeine, morphine)
  • Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonopin)
  • Pain medication (hydrocodone)
  • Alcohol

Treatment Programs

When it comes to treatment programs, The Recovery Village, out preferred treatment provider offers several different options.

Partial hospitalization program (PHP)

In a PHP program, patients will receive round-the-clock care.

In rehabilitation programs that offer residential treatment, patients also receive round-the-clock care.

Intensive outpatient program (IOP)

After rehabilitation programs during the day, patients are allowed to go home at night.

Outpatient program

In order to stay on the path to recovery, the patient will be provided with a plan for aftercare.

Understanding Alcoholism Treatment

Alcohol Use Disorder afflicts 15.1 million adults in the country according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Of all of these adults, only 1.3 million sought treatment for the disease. Alcohol is in so many places in our society. It’s in ever song, it’s in every movie, it’s on every TV show. Living a sober life and treating alcoholism can seem really difficult in a society where drinking is everywhere you look. Rehabilitation programs can help alcoholics to treat their disease and learn the tools to cope with everyday life.

“I have tried to stop using heroin three times, but it never seemed to work. One day I woke up and I took a hard look at my life, and I realized that I was in the darkest place I had ever been in. I heard about The Recovery Village, and I was so desperate that I decided to go. I am so incredibly glad that I did. The staff at The Recovery Village was amazing. They really helped me to see where my life could be if I choose to stay clean. They helped me realize that my addiction was not my fault and that I could find treatment for the disease. People told me it wasn’t a disease; it was just me making horrible choices. But I didn’t make the choice to become a heroin addict. Why would anyone keep doing something that is killing them? I can’t think of anything other than a disease that would do that to someone. Luckily, though, my disease has been treated.”

“The Recovery Village has the best staff of therapists I have ever seen. I have tried other rehabilitation programs, and they were never able to help me, but The Recovery Village did.”
– Frank L.
