Conditions and Issues Treated

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

People who abuse drugs are likely to suffer from an addiction, which can cause serious health problems. When it comes to helping drug abusers get sober, there are many options to choose from. It is essential to state that there is no “”correct”” way of doing things. People are different, and they need different types of help to get over their addiction.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Tamarac, 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

Dual Diagnosis refers to someone who is both dealing with addiction and another mental health issue.

There are different kinds of Dual Diagnosis: A person who simultaneously experiences both a mental illness and an addiction disorder. Or, a person who experiences one or more coexisting (simultaneous) mental health conditions in addition to a primary substance use disorder.

Some conditions that commonly co-occur with addiction include:

  • Personality Disorders (Borderline, Narcissistic)
  • Mood Disorders (Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety Disorder)
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • Schizophrenia, Psychosis, Hallucinations, Delusions

Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

An addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. Detoxification allows the addict to rid the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol and gives the addict a clean slate for their recovery. In an inpatient or outpatient setting, detox can be managed medically.

Individuals who are suffering from severe addiction or have a high risk for dangerous health concerns are often recommended to receive inpatient treatment.

Choosing to enter an inpatient treatment program is beneficial for people who are suffering from severe addiction, or who have a high risk for dangerous health concerns.

Inpatient treatment is beneficial for:

  • People who have a history of severe withdrawal.
  • People who have attempted to overcome addiction on their own without success.
  • People who have a history of relapse, or have recently relapsed.
  • People at risk for drug overdose or withdrawal-related complications.
  • People with medical conditions that are worsened by drug or alcohol use.

Outpatient addiction treatment is beneficial for people who are able to function well in their day-to-day lives. It is recommended for people who are not yet ready to end their relationships with friends or family members who might be encouraging drug and alcohol use.

Intensive outpatient treatment is beneficial for:

  • People who are able to attend treatment more than 3 times per week.
  • People who do not meet the criteria for inpatient treatment.
  • People who are able to contribute to their own recovery outside of the treatment center.
  • People who are motivated towards recovery.
  • People who are able to overcome addiction on their own without the need for higher levels of care.

Outpatient treatment programs provide drug and alcohol addiction treatment through individual sessions with a counselor, group therapy, 12-step meetings, and other activities to help individuals gain sober living skills. Most programs are designed for those individuals who have completed a medically supervised detoxification program and provide opportunities for clients to begin the process of early recovery.

Outpatient programs also offer a level of medical support as needed and psychological backing through therapy. Clients are encouraged to live at home, though there may be some flexibility regarding this requirement based on the circumstances and needs of each patient.

Outpatient treatment is perhaps the most common type of dual diagnosis program available. It does not pose a significant financial burden on patients. However, it is essential to note that outpatient treatment does not provide the support and supervision given in residential programs. Some addicts may need this level of support to maintain their sobriety.

Sober Living Home (SLH) is a term used to describe houses where people recovering from addiction can stay. The goal of these places is to provide immediate support and protection that the addict needs and force them to live a life free from substance abuse.

SLH’s typically allow the addict to live there for 30, 60, or 90 days. This is intended to enable the addict time to develop a foundation of “sobriety,”; allowing them to adjust to living without the substance while building new life skills. During this time, addicts also typically attend regular addiction, education classes.

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.

People who have completed a rehab program often need continued support from the addiction treatment team in order to remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol. Aftercare can be beneficial for personal, social, and emotional growth.

Common aftercare options include:

  • Individual Therapy – this type of addiction counseling is available on a one-on-one basis. This can be beneficial for people with a high degree of emotional turmoil and a strong desire to overcome addiction.
  • Group Therapy – this type of addiction counseling is available in a group setting. This type of treatment can be beneficial for people who are unable to attend regular therapy appointments due to other responsibilities.
  • Family Therapy – this type of addiction counseling is available to the family members of addicts. This can be beneficial for people who are unable to fully comprehend what their loved ones are experiencing due to addiction.

Therapies & Programs

Therapy sessions focused on the individual addict can provide much-needed guidance as they work toward overcoming their addiction. These types of sessions typically involve guidance from a therapist, who will help addicts identify and process their feelings and cravings.

During these sessions, addicts may develop plans for coping with the triggers that typically lead to relapse and learn how to avoid those triggers during their recovery process.

Different types of addiction treatment services are available. Within this article, group therapy is of interest due to its high success rate compared to individual therapy. Group therapy settings are beneficial because they allow recovering addicts to build a strong support network.

Benefits of group therapy are:

  • Reduces feelings of isolation
  • Immediate access to social support in the form of fellow addicts in recovery
  • Lowers risk of relapse
  • Increases rate of sobriety
  • Builds coping skills that can be applied to everyday life

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used by drug treatment centers to help addicts comprehend the causes of their substance abuse and the consequences that follow. Through CBT, clients learn to recognize and avoid high-risk situations and cope with challenging situations when they arise.

CBT treatment often includes a combination of individual therapy, group therapy, lectures, and other activities. The treatment’s goal is to help addicts gain self-control and maintain abstinence from drugs and alcohol over the long term so that an addict can get sober and lead a more productive life.

CBT is particularly effective in helping people overcome their drug problems, especially people whose drug abuse is motivated by self-defeating beliefs and emotions.

Those struggling with addiction in Florida can benefit from learning certain life skills. It is not as simple as quitting drinking or taking drugs and thinking that the hard part is over. Being sober means living a whole new way of life. Many recovering addicts have found that they need to develop talents like time management, organization, communication skills, socialization skills, and self-esteem to make their life in sobriety work.

Drug and alcohol addiction can lead to a breakdown in life skills. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction. Life skills training at Above All Recovery Center in Tamarac, FL teaches patients skills such as time management, budgeting, and social abilities to improve their quality of life and prevent relapse.

An addict’s life skills are maladaptive, meaning they are counterproductive. An addict may have learned poor time management skills growing up, have a hard time budgeting money, or be socially awkward. An addict’s poor life skills can lead to relapse and the inability to achieve long-term sobriety. Life skills training teaches patients effective coping mechanisms, which can help them live a clean and sober life.

Good nutrition can be difficult for people recovering from addiction because they may not feel like eating while they are experiencing the physical and emotional side effects of detoxing.

Nutrition therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

  • Helps individuals to understand which foods promote good health and support recovery that will assist them during detox
  • Provides guidance and education in Tamarac, Florida about how to maintain a nutritious diet so they can stay healthy during recovery
  • Improves their overall health and well-being, which can reduce the severity of substance withdrawal symptoms.

Nicotine replacement therapies are effective because they provide you with the nicotine you are addicted to without inhaling carcinogens from cigarettes. Some types of NRT include nicotine gum, nicotine patches (transdermal systems), nasal spray, and lozenges. The benefits of using NRT can include reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.

Patient Experience

Creative Arts

Creative Arts Therapy (CAT) is a form of art therapy that uses creative activities such as music, painting, drama, and writing to help patients explore their feelings. It can help people struggling with addiction or mental illness access their inner voices and discover their unique potential. It is particularly effective with people who may not respond to other forms of therapy or lack the motivation to take part in more traditional forms of counseling.

Experiential Therapy at Above All Recovery Center

Experiential therapy is a form of psychotherapy where patients are asked to engage in activities such as role-play, poetry writing, music composition, exercising, or journaling to help process intense feelings. The aim of the therapy is to help patients access deeper, often hidden emotions by helping them explore their own body and mind.
