A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in West Palm Beach, FL
Many people who struggle with opioid addiction need to attend specific programs like methadone , Suboxone or Vivitrol clinics.
These types of programs will provide the patient with legal, prescription medications that can help them overcome their cravings for illegal opioids like heroin or fentanyl . If the patient has a chronic condition like Hepatitis C, they must undergo treatment before they can begin taking these medications.
Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at A New Start
Dual Diagnosis is a specific relationship between two or more disorders that have the same symptoms and can sometimes be treated together. This is used in the treatment planning process when dealing with drug addicts. Dual diagnosis can be viewed as a chronic medical condition that has comorbid psychiatric disorders.
Although addiction and a mental illness may have separate symptoms that are not easy to detect, they often go hand in hand. Many times, drug abuse is a direct result of the mental illness. In other words, treating the addiction will not resolve all of your issues. Unless you also treat the underlying mental illness, you will not be successful in achieving sobriety.

Inpatient Treatment Program
Inpatient treatment is an intensive program that takes place when a patient checks into a rehabilitation facility. The treatment includes detoxification and counseling sessions, which are round the clock. Outpatient treatments are also available, but inpatient care is advised as the first step of rehabilitation.
Intensive rehab ensures the patient stays in a substance-free atmosphere, improving treatment success rates. The patient participates in group therapy for motivation from other patients who have overcome addiction. Family members are also involved in providing emotional support throughout the program.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
An intensive outpatient program is usually the first phase of addiction treatment. It provides relief for those who are addicted, but are not ready to commit to an inpatient setting. Typically, the patient lives at home and is able to work or go to school. IOPs consist of a daily 3 to 5-hour program, and there is a required number of hours per week. Most patients go to IOP between 20 and 40 hours per week. The patient attends group counseling and individual therapy throughout the duration of treatment. They also meet daily with their therapist to discuss how it’s going and where they are in the recovery process.
The goal here is to teach patients healthy coping skills, such as stress management and identifying thoughts and behaviors that lead to relapse. The implementation of these skills will be useful as the individual transitions into the next phases of treatment.
An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction, or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the Florida facility for their therapy and other programs but are able to return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of A New Start‘s program is complete.
Sober Living Homes are an option for those who have completed a treatment program within the past several months. However, it isn’t advisable to use this as a permanent living arrangement because it can lead to a relapse .
The goal of a sober living home is to provide a supportive environment for recovering addicts so they don’t need to return to their previous lifestyles. The homes will not accept residents who are still using drugs or alcohol, and those living in the house must follow a set of rules dictating how they should behave to avoid relapsing.
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.
Intervention services can be beneficial for people who have not been able to overcome drug and alcohol addiction on their own. It is recommended for individuals whose addiction has led to dangerous or life-threatening circumstances.
Intervention services are beneficial for:
- People who have relapsed after completing other forms of addiction treatment.
- People with drug addictions that have led to dangerous health conditions, such as HIV.
- People who are at risk of losing their family, home, or job due to addiction.
- People who are having difficulty overcoming drug and alcohol addiction on their own.
- An intervention can be conducted by professionals, or by loved ones of an addict. If the person being intervened on agrees to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, the next step would be to choose a treatment program.
If they do not agree to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, loved ones may choose to go back to the drawing board and try another form of treatment. They may also choose to not receive any further treatment, but there are usually other factors in play that may make it difficult for people to stop using drugs or alcohol.
Aftercare is a term that’s used to refer to any sort of continuing care offered for a drug addict who has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation program. This type of care can be provided in several settings, including outpatient therapy sessions after the addict has completed an inpatient program. There are also 12-step support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which can provide additional help for addicts trying to stay sober.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this West Palm Beach, FL Facility.
Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.
Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.
Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like A New Start to provide the recovering drug addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction.
Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).
Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.
(REBT) was developed by Dr. Albert Ellis in 1955. The therapy is based on the premise that our beliefs lead to and maintain our emotions and behaviors. Therefore, if a person has irrational thoughts, they will have an unhealthy emotional life. And as long as those irrational beliefs remain unchanged, they will continue to have unhealthy emotions and behaviors.
REBT is a purely psychological therapy, meaning it does not incorporate the use of medications or supplements. Instead, REBT focuses on helping people understand, respect, and accept their feelings without judgment, enabling them to have more control over their actions and behaviors.
The therapeutic process is straightforward: clients learn to identify the irrational beliefs that cause distress, challenge good coping statements, and replace them with healthy, rational beliefs.
