When you become dependent on alcohol or drugs, it can cause even logical thoughts such as the need to quit to become impossible to follow through on. This is because a substance addiction can actually change your brain chemistry. The drug- and alcohol-seeking behavior can be difficult to control, even as the problems in your life seem to multiple. If this is the situation that you face, Legacy Healing Center can help you achieve a better future, as it has done so for thousands others.
At our behavioral health center in South Florida, you will be treated by compassionate healthcare professionals that understand all of the hardships that you are going through. But how do you know if a rehab can really do what it promises? According to the effective treatment principals that are described by the National Institute, in order to provide effective treatment for alcohol and drug abuse, several criteria must be met.
Some of the important criteria for effective drug and alcohol addiction treatment includes creating personalized treatment plans for each patient, treating the person as a whole not just their addiction, spending at least three months in treatment programs, treating the patient with behavioral therapies, and providing medication for withdrawal symptom relief and long-term addiction maintenance.
At Legacy Healing Center, we adhere to every single one of the principles of effective treatment so that you can gain all of the benefits of evidence-based treatment for addiction. It is also one of the reasons why our behavioral health center has been fully accredited by the Joint Commission. The Gold Seal of Approval that we have been awarded together with our adherence to the principles of effective treatment makes our addiction treatment center in South Florida, the best place to recover from an addiction.
The abuse of drugs such as crystal meth, prescription opioid pain relievers, heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, molly, and other addictive substances has resulted in over 8 million people over the age of 12 with a substance use disorder in 2018. These drugs are often highly addictive, and when you repeatedly abuse them, addiction is inevitable. Our drug rehab for Jacksonville program is here to help people from all over Florida overcome substance abuse disorders.
Some people may think that because they are functioning substance abusers that they need not worry about the effects, or that they won’t get addicted, but the truth is that given enough time, an addiction is bound to form. If you have become addicted to illicit or prescription drugs, then you are likely aware of the problems that follow in the wake of substance abuse.
Some problems from drug abuse may seem small, but oftentimes, the people close to you also suffer, and see the larger scope of the problem that you may or may not see. If you are struggling to stop substance abuse, then our drug rehab center can help you to climb out of the difficulties you face and overcome the disease of addiction.
Our drug rehab programs, including our 30-, 60-, and 90-day programs, will start with an assessment of your needs. Factors such as the drug you are dependent on, family dynamics, career problems, prior medical conditions, education, state of health, and mental health are all important areas that we explore when you enter into one of our rehab programs in South Florida. Our practitioners use this personal information in order to formulate the best possible tailor-made treatment plan.
Following your assessment, you will then be directed to our medical detox program. It is a treatment that helps you to transition from physical drug dependence to our behavior therapies and holistic programs. Detox from drugs, as you might be aware, can be brutal. However, with a medical detox program, the symptoms can be managed so that you can get through the experience more comfortably and safely.
After detox, you will then be mentally and physically prepared to delve into the causes of your addiction. Behavioral therapy also includes changing negative behaviors and replacing them with positive, healthy behaviors and thinking. We also help you to stay motivated with your recovery and use that motivation to enhance the positive changes that you are in need of to abstain from drug abuse.
Behavioral therapies that might be a part of your personalized plan include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and the use of motivation enhancement therapy (MI).
The holistic approach to recovery that we use at Legacy Healing Center is aimed at addressing other areas of your life that may be indirectly affected by or affecting your substance use disorder. For example, participating in family therapy can help to repair your family relationships so that you can be better supported in the future, and to help heal the wounds of addiction in each family member.
We will also explore your mental health to ensure that there is not another untreated mental disorder that you may have been using drugs to self-treat. If you have a mental disorder such as PTSD, ADHD, or bi-polar among others, then we can provide you with the qualified treatments that can properly treat them so that they don’t lead to relapse in your future. In fact, a large number of people with substance use disorder are affected by a mental disorder.
Alcohol use disorder is the term used for alcohol addiction. It includes mild to severe alcohol addictions. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 14.8 million people in the United States had alcohol use disorder in 2018, which is roughly 5.4 percent of the entire population over the age of 12. Alcohol abuse tends to be so widespread because it’s readily available, it’s socially acceptable to have a drink at nearly any social event, and it causes a physical dependence when it is abused frequently.
At Legacy Healing Center in South Florida, our healthcare practitioners are acutely aware of the impact that alcohol use disorder can have on your life. We understand that seeking professional help can be difficult, and we are ready to help you make the most of your motivation to change your life.
Alcohol use disorder is a treatable condition if accredited treatment programs are utilized. Legacy Healing Center can assist you through your alcohol rehab process through our specialized treatment programs for alcohol use disorder that are fully accredited by the Joint Commission. We help you to deal with all aspects of your recovery from the initial dependence and withdrawal symptoms associated with heavy drinking to the holistic healing programs and behavioral therapy that are needed to create the foundation of a new, healthy life.
We understand that you may be fearful to stop drinking because the symptoms that set it make it difficult to focus on your goal of stopping. But we can help you by giving you a safe space to recover in and providing you with medications to drastically reduce the symptoms during detox.
Once we have helped you get through detox safely, you can then begin to work on the things in your life and behavior that have led you to abuse alcohol. There are three main factors that can lead to an addiction. The first and most important is your biology. This includes the genes you were born with, such as your family genes and being prone to addiction. It also includes mental disorders that you may have. We will treat these disorders at the same time as your addiction to achieve the best results in your recovery.
Another factor of alcohol addiction can be how early you started drinking because it can alter important developmental changes that your brain was going through. The final major cause of alcohol addiction is your environment such as your friends and the peer pressure they place on you, stress, potential physical or emotional abuse, and a lack of parental guidance in your youth.
These factors can be explored during your treatment to get to the heart of your alcohol addiction. By providing you with new ways to deal with stress, improving your coping skills for trigger situations such as peer pressure, and providing alternative behavior for problematic behavior, we will help you to build a new foundation that is free from alcohol abuse.
Additionally, through therapy such as motivation enhancement therapy, we help you to build the motivation that you will need to change your life for the better. Support is also important to bring about positive, lasting change. In the months and years to come, you will need to have emotional support from your family and loved ones to help you to stay on track. This can be achieved through family therapy that we offer, and through the support groups that we make available to you.
Finally, you will have a personal sober coach that will be there to help you when things get tough in your life and you are struggling to overcome your triggers.
If you are looking for an addiction treatment center in Florida, then Legacy Healing Center in South Florida can provide you with a conclusive treatment solution. Our specialized treatment programs are designed to treat specific addictions to substance such as cocaine, alcohol, opioids (prescription opioids and heroin), crystal meth, amphetamines, and benzodiazepines among others.
The dedication of our staff and our low patient-to-staff ratios allow us to provide you with unparalleled addiction treatment services. We can help any individual suffering from an addiction in the Jacksonville area, or the surrounding region. Thanks to our luxury residential facilities, we can also serve people from out-of-state.
The drug detox in our rehab facility in South Florida is a program that can help you to get through drug detox with minimal discomfort and danger. One of the biggest concerns with a drug detox is that after your tolerance has lowered from a few days of being clean, if a relapse occurs, the risk of overdose is very high because your body is no longer ready for the drug in such high amounts.
However, through our detox program, you can be helped all the way through the detox process and directly into our therapies to help you to prevent relapse. Our drug detox works by not forcing you to deal with intense symptoms of withdrawal alone, but rather through the use of various FDA-approved medications. These medications can limit the symptoms that you experience and make the entire experience much easier to get through.
We will also monitor your health during the process. Prior medical conditions can create complications that need to be closely monitored by a healthcare professional. Our medical detox program in South Florida can make detox easier.
Alcohol detox is a particularly dangerous process if you attempt it alone. Once you become physically reliant on alcohol, stopping abruptly causes severe symptoms to set in after roughly 8 to 24 hours from your last drink. The symptoms that manifest during alcohol detox include depression, fatigue, irritability, mood swings, foggy thinking, anxiety, and shakiness. Other symptoms that you may experience during alcohol detox include headaches, appetite loss, sweating, nausea, vomiting, paleness, tremors, and insomnia.
The cause of these symptoms lies in the effects of long-term alcohol abuse. Over time, your body starts to adjust to alcohol being present all the time. Alcohol causes a relaxing sensation when you drink because it stimulates the neurotransmitter GABA. However, as a result of the large amounts of GABA that is being stimulated by alcohol, the body increases its production of glutamate. Glutamate has basically the opposite effect of GABA, and when they are in balance, your body functions normally.
In alcohol dependence, you have too much glutamate in your body, resulting symptoms such as anxiety among others. It can be a serious condition that only time can really heal. Your body must revert to its normal function again, which can take between 5 to 7 days.
Thankfully, at Legacy Healing Center, you don’t need to worry about the often-severe symptoms of alcohol withdrawal because we can give you medication that will reduce the symptoms of withdrawal and get you back to feeling normal again. The medications that we use include benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and various anti-seizure and antipsychotic medications.
In severe cases of alcohol withdrawal, delirium tremens can occur, which includes symptoms such as severe confusion, seizures, fever, agitation, and hallucinations. While it only occurs in around 3 percent of alcohol withdrawal cases, it can lead to serious medical concerns that can be fatal if you do not have medical supervision.
At Legacy Healing Center we not only provide you with the medications to treat the various symptoms that might occur during alcohol detox, but we also monitor your health closely. If any medical concerns appear, then we can deal with them quickly and effectively due to our fully medically-equipped detox center. Your safe recovery is our number one concern.
We don’t want you to avoid quitting alcohol because you fear the symptoms of withdrawal, or because the cravings become too intense. Through our medical detox program for alcohol you can break a physical alcohol dependence.
By itself, a medical detox cannot treat an addiction. Once you have completed our medical detox, you can then begin to truly heal from an addiction and build the type of life you want through our various behavioral therapies and holistic healing programs in our clinical rehab for addiction.
The length of rehab is an important part of giving yourself a real chance at a full recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. At Legacy Healing Center, we understand the need to provide our clients with rehab terms that are long enough to have a lasting effect.
At our addiction treatment center in South Florida, we can provide you with treatment programs that are able treat both mild and severe addictions. From our 30-day programs to our 90-day long-term treatment solutions, we have ample program lengths to help you to properly overcome an addiction regardless of how severe it may be.
If we examine the research available on how long rehab should be, we find that 90 days in rehab and aftercare programs is the ideal length to achieve a lasting change. Of course, this information provided by the National Institute on Drug Abuse is there to guide treatment and if you need an even longer period in rehab to properly recover, then we can assist you.
One of the considerations before entering rehab is how much it might cost you. Since accredited treatment can range from a 30-day outpatient program to a long-term 90-day inpatient rehab program, the cost of rehab really depends on what it is that you will need from rehab in order to heal.
There are, however, guidelines that can help you to determine what might increase the cost of rehab. For example, if you were to stay in our residential facility, then you can expect to the cost of rehab to increase compared to outpatient rehab. The total length of the rehab programs that you will be involved with also affects the price. A luxury facility with all of the amenities that you’d expect from a resort-like setting can have an impact on the cost. The range of services that are ultimately required to help you to overcome addiction also has an effect on the cost of rehab.
Since our addiction treatment services are personalized, it is best that you contact us at (888) 534-2295 in order to speak to our representatives about the cost of rehab. You can take advantage of our free, no-obligation consultation at any time to discuss the cost of rehab.
One of the ways to offset the cost of rehab is through your health insurance plan. In general, you can expect your health insurance plan to cover some or all of the cost of rehab if you were to use an accredited rehab facility such as Legacy Healing Center. The law requires that health insurance plans provide some level of coverage for addiction treatment services because addiction is recognized as a serious mental disorder that can have a drastic, negative impact on your life.
Most rehab plans will provide coverage for specific treatments and programs, such as outpatient rehab, medical detox, and specific behavioral therapies that are effective at treating an addiction.
After completing treatment, it is important to find events and activities to do that will keep you active and engaged in your recovery. Fortunately for residents of Jacksonville, FL there are many sober-friendly options when looking for things to do; you can explore the city, see many of the attractions, and find the joy in things again without the need for alcohol or drugs to make it interesting or enjoyable.
Some of the fun outings that you can have in Jacksonville include Catty Shack Ranch, which is a rescue center for big cats, the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, and the Little Talbot Island, which offers fishing fun and numerous wildlife species to observe.
Of course, Jacksonville isn’t complete without going to the wonderous, idyllic beaches such as the Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, Mickler’s Beach, and the Atlantic Beach. Enjoy basking in the sun, swimming, or taking part in the many activities on the beach such as beach volleyball.
You do not need to struggle with an addiction alone, or let it cause continued devastation in your and your loved ones’ lives. To get accredited drug and alcohol addiction help, contact Legacy Healing Center today at (888) 534-2295.
