Substance Abuse + Addiction

Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. Psychoactive substances are those that affect brain function. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. The overuse of psychoactive substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence. It also affects the social life and relationships of the affected individual. Substance abuse is treatable.

The duration of treatment at A Life Recovery Center in Tallahassee can be weeks or even months depending on the severity of the condition as there is a risk of relapse. Treatment options include medications, counseling sessions, various types of behavioral therapy, and group therapy in different combinations.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction

Addiction to prescription opioid painkillers like oxycodone and hydrocodone, and illicit opioids such as heroin, leads to potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms when discontinued. Opioid addiction treatment typically involves an inpatient stay at facilities like A Life Recovery Center to make sure they get through withdrawal safely. Treatment also includes comprehensive mental health counseling.

Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Intensive Outpatient, Long Term (>30 Days), Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, Short Term (<30 Days), with additional therapies available as listed below.

Drug Rehabilitation

Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

An intensive outpatient program is a good option for someone in Florida with a milder or less severe addiction. An IOP may involve daily meetings at a treatment facility, along with personal counseling and peer meetings. Some IOP programs offer half-day treatment, while others offer full-day programs. A Life Recovery Center‘s IOP is customized per individual.

Aftercare Support

Aftercare comprises services that help recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day Florida activities. It can last a year or even longer. Services include individual and family counseling, medications to reduce cravings, and treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions. Aftercare support begins once you have completed earlier stages of treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial hospitalization (PHP) is a type of outpatient addiction care. Each plan is tailored to meet unique individual needs. Treatment is more intense than that you receive at a therapist’s office. It is less intense than inpatient rehab. The entire treatment takes about ten days to complete. It does not require you to stay at the Florida treatment center. Each visit lasts several hours, sometimes, eight hours. It can be the best choice for those who have recently developed an addiction.

Outpatient

Outpatient programs are the standard for addiction treatment. About 9 in 10 U.S. adolescents entering addiction treatment enroll in these programs, so you’re not alone in Tallahassee, FL. Treatment is delivered in different settings – offices, clinics, and primary care clinics. These facilities offer a variety of services, such as individual and group counseling and family therapy. During the sessions, you work with a team of experts that include: General physicians, Psychiatrists, Social Workers, and Psychologists. The main goals of outpatient recovery programs are to help addicted individuals reduce drug use and addictive behaviors, eventually becoming entirely sober.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

It is useful in the treatment of patients exhibiting uncontrollable emotions, intense mood swings, and borderline personality disorders.

The term “Dialectic” means the integration of opposites. In the substance abuse context, DBT refers to accepting the patient’s addiction and working to change their thoughts and behavior.
