Substance use disorder, also known as addiction, is a widespread problem in the United States. A 2018 national survey estimated the number of people who suffered from substance use disorder than last year to be over 20 million. Among the organizations that are fighting addiction are rehabs. But how do rehabs help addicts?
At Legacy Healing Center’s drug rehab in South Florida, the most effective evidence-based treatments are incorporated into a treatment plan to help achieve long-term sobriety in their patients.
The problems that addiction causes are not isolated to just the person using the drugs; families, friends, co-workers, and the community can suffer as a result of substance abuse. However, many addicts are aware of the problems that their substance abuse is causing but are powerless to control their cravings.
Addiction alters brain function and as a result, attempts to quit alone can fall short as the drug-seeking behavior intensifies and the brain tries to maintain the new balance that the drug dependence has created. In this situation, the addict should seek help to first overcome the withdrawal and cravings that a physical dependence to drugs causes, and then work on the other areas of their behavior, life, and thinking that caused their addiction in order to avoid future drug abuse.
At our drug rehab, we can assist with the initial withdrawal syndrome, using medications where needed, and then employ various evidence-based, clinical therapies that are designed to improve the life of an addict and stop substance abuse for good.
Once you have decided to get professional help for an addiction or decided to help a loved one find treatment, then you’ll realize that help is readily available. If you are seeking drug rehab then Legacy Healing Center can assist you with everything you need to reach long-term sobriety.
It’s important to be aware of what it takes for treatment to work. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has outlined the factors that make treatment for addiction effective. They include providing personalized treatment, using medication where needed, using evidence-based behavioral therapy, treating co-occurring mental disorders, providing treatment programs that are long enough, continual assessments, and treating the multiple needs of a patient among others.
When finding professional help for an addiction to drugs or alcohol, it’s important that the rehab you choose is able to provide everything that treatment needs to be effective. At our drug rehab, we have all of the elements that make treatment effective.
Drug rehab can be a vastly different experience depending on which rehab you choose to go to. Some rehabs offer the most basic treatment package while others provide a whole-patient approach in a resort-like setting.

Treatment generally tends to be in two different formats: group or individual. In individual therapy, you will talk one-on-one with your healthcare professional, which can help to talk about and discuss the issues and problems that you may have with regards to substance abuse. In the group format, you can expect to partake in activities such as art therapy, and various other therapeutic programs that use the power of the group format to achieve greater success in treatment.
In our drug rehab, you can expect to receive treatment in a clinical yet resort-like environment. Your time at rehab begins with a mental and physical assessment to allow our practitioners to determine the best treatment plan for you.
At first, rehab will be about detoxification. Detox is a time where you allow your body to adjust to quitting alcohol or drugs, and when symptoms of withdrawal become too much or dangerous, then medication will be given to soothe your symptoms.
After detox, you can expect to put your focus on healing mentally. Therapy is a major part of treatment, and most of your time will be spent in therapy and holistic healing programs. However, the body also needs to heal and you can expect to participate in exercise and other healthy activities such as yoga.
By the end of your stay, you can expect to feel prepared to reenter your life with the confidence that substance abuse will no longer be the driving force in your life.
