St. Petersburg Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Is drug addiction running your life? Do you find yourself feeling hopeless? Lost? In complete despair?

There is something you can do. Addiction is not your fault. You can get help. You can get treatment. All you have to do is pick up your phone and make one simple call to (352) 771-2700. For the addict or alcoholic in St. Petersburg, seeking help is the most important thing you can do.

There is no shame in asking for help. It takes incredible courage and bravery to ask for help and to seek the treatment that will send you into long-term recovery from your addiction. Not asking for help is not only selfish and cowardly, but not asking for help will eventually send your life crumbling around you. Maybe not today. Maybe not even tomorrow. But for all alcoholics and addicts, substance abuse always leads to the same place.

Medical Detoxification

Detoxification may be necessary for any patient who is dependent on a substance. The first step to recovery involves ridding the body of harmful substances.

Patients who are addicted to any of the following medications and/or substances may be in need of detoxification before they can start the rehabilitation program:

  • Narcotics (morphine, codeine)
  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax)
  • Sleeping medication (Lunesta, Ambien)
  • Pain medication (Vicodin, OxyContin)

Treatment Programs

Our preferred treatment provider, The Recovery Village, offers several different options when it comes to treatment programs:

Residential treatment

Counselors, doctors, and medical staff work together to provide patients with round-the-clock care and individualized treatment plans.

Partial hospitalization program (PHP)

Similar to the residential treatment program, patients receive round-the-clock care with less monitoring.

Intensive outpatient program (IOP)

Patients are in a rehabilitation program all day, and then they go home or to one of the facility’s housing communities at night.

Outpatient program

This program helps patients to take gradual steps from the recovery program to living in the real world.


The patient will be given a plan to prevent relapse and to stay connected to therapy and recovery meetings.

Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment

According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health in 2015, an estimated 8.1 million adults had both mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Among these patients who suffered from co-occurring disorders, 48 percent of them received either mental health care and/or substance abuse treatment in the past year.

If you have a co-occurring disorder, seeking treatment is even more important. It can be easy to let substance abuse control your life. It can also be easy to let mental illness take over your life. Having both of them together can be a deadly combination. Seeking the treatment you deserve is absolutely imperative.

“I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder last year, and I also developed a hydrocodone habit after I injured my arm. Once I started using the medication as an unhealthy solution for my bipolar disorder, I realized I had reached a point where I really needed help. When I sought treatment at a rehabilitation facility, I came to understand the significance of the treatment that I needed. Not only was I having substance abuse issues, but I had a mental health disorder. A normal recovery program or mental health treatment that did not take the other issue into account would not have been nearly as effective. Now I have a new outlook on life, and there seem to be so many more possibilities. I owe it all to rehabilitation.”
– Kristina B.

“I wasn’t just addicted to one substance. I was addicted to a lot of different substances: alcohol, cocaine, heroin. Pretty much anything I could get my hands on. I had a lot of internal work to do to treat my addiction issues. I didn’t go to rehab by choice. I was forced into the program by my parents. However, once I was there, I started to see how destructive my addiction had become. The counselors and doctors helped me to seek the treatment I deserved for my addiction. After a long time in residential treatment and then intensive outpatient therapy, I finally got to a point where I can begin my long-term recovery.”
