Miami Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Addiction is not a lifestyle choice. No one chooses to become a slave to drugs and alcohol. Addiction is a disease, and if you are afflicted with it, you need to seek treatment. Seeking help for your disease is the only way you will be able to take back your own life.
Have you tried time and time again to get clean or sober on your own? Have you relapsed over and over? Have you picked up enough white chips at 12-step meetings to be able to tile a bathroom? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, it may be time to try professional rehabilitation. If you are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol in Miami, the best thing you can do is to call (352) 771-2700.
Counselors at our preferred provider, The Recovery Village, are here to speak with you about your unique situation. All you have to do is accept the help that is available to you.
Stop Being a Chronic Relapser
The majority of alcoholics and addicts who would classify themselves as “chronic relapsers” have not sought professional treatment at a rehabilitation facility. The important thing to remember is that you don’t have to have it all figured out today. It’s easy to get overwhelmed if you think about never using drugs again or never drinking again or never relapsing again in your entire life. The best thing you can do is think about taking things one day at a time. One step at a time. The first step? Pick up the phone and call (352) 771-2700.
Common Substances Patients Abuse
There are many different substances that can be real problems for people and lead to extreme destruction. If you use any of the following substances, it’s important to really take a step back and evaluate the control the substance has over your life:
Alcohol (beer, wine, liquor)
Hallucinogens (LSD, PCP, MDMA/ecstasy)
Prescription medicine (benzodiazepines, opiates, stimulants)
Different Kinds of Treatment
Different patients will have different needs depending on their unique situations, the drug(s) they are dependent on, and whether or not they have any mental illness or emotional issues that need to also be treated. Rehabilitation professionals will also need to consider whether or not the patient has a stable living environment with supportive family members or friends. Our preferred provider, The Recovery Village, offers the following types of treatment:
The patient may need a certain amount of time to let their bodies detox from any harmful substances. Having medical supervision for this process is crucial.
Residential Inpatient Treatment or Intensive Outpatient Treatment – Rehabilitation is where the doctors, counselors, and staff do all of the work that is necessary with the patient to treat his or her addiction.
Aftercare is an important and final step to ensure that the patient is able to continue his or her treatment in the real world.
Co-occurring Disorder Treatment
Often times, patients have to deal with a dual diagnosis of addiction as well as a mental illness. This is treated during the rehabilitation as well.
“Rehabilitation literally saved my life. I did so many things I never thought I was even capable of doing in order to continue using drugs. I knew if I kept going, I was 100% going to end up dead or in jail. Getting professional help for my addiction was the only way I was ever going to stop using drugs. I am slowly putting my life back together now, but I will forever be grateful to all of the amazing doctors, counselors, and staff members that helped me get my life back together.”
