    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A person who struggles with addiction and a mental health condition suffers from a dual diagnosis. This means that they have two issues that must be treated. Taking care of one or the other is tough, and taking care of both cannot be done alone. A patient who receives dual diagnosis treatment in Florida will be given the best chance at becoming sober.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Inpatient treatment for alcoholism or drug addiction is an option that provides the addict with a supportive environment in which they can stop using. This type of treatment is appropriate for addicts that are most in need of intensive care and supervision. This includes those who were unable to quit on their own, those who need more structure than they can get in outpatient treatment.

    “Outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have a lower intensity addiction. It’s also suitable for those with a supportive environment and those on a tight budget.

    Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may involve weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be used and anti-addiction medication.

    This type of addiction treatment is available for people who need more time and attention than an outpatient program can provide. This type of program is beneficial for people who have low motivation due to addiction, or have a lack of support at home which prohibits them from being able to attend a traditional addiction recovery program.

    PHP is beneficial to:

    • Individuals who have very low motivation to recover from addiction as a result of the severe consequences they are facing as a result of their drug or alcohol use.
    • People with a mental health diagnosis combined with addiction.
    • People who need to be closely monitored due to the fact that they are not able to function well enough on their own.
    • People who do not have strong social support or other treatment options available to them at home such as family or individual therapy.

    Sober living homes are halfway houses where people can stay for a while and stabilize themselves—no drinking or drugging, paying rent/bills, etc. There is no minimum or maximum stay, but as long as you follow these simple guidelines, it’s an excellent chance to move forward into sobriety!

    For many, this is a new beginning, a reset. The opportunity to establish new routines and healthy habits that will result in long-term sobriety is given to those who have lost everything due to addiction. It’s also common for people to move from one sober living home to another, each step closer to a drug and alcohol-free life.

    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.

    Drug rehab intervention aims to make sure patients understand the risks of their addiction and possible outcomes. They must learn how their addiction affects those around them and allow a therapy session to help move past the physical symptoms. They often include psychotherapy or behavioral therapy, group therapy, family counseling, and peer support.

    Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.

    The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.

    Therapies & Programs

    No single treatment works for all addicts; therefore, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to find what works best for each individual. Some people requiring addiction treatment may only need a few weeks of inpatient care. Others will require long-term residential care. Tolerance and withdrawal levels vary from person to person and thus affect the intensity of the treatment needed.

    If an individualized approach to treatment and therapy is not offered, addicts may fail to reap benefits from their efforts. Professionals must customize plans according to their patient’s needs, limitations, and strengths. The goal of all forms of addiction treatment should be for addicts to find healthy ways to cope with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    Couples therapy for drug addiction is a unique form of therapy that allows family members to work through the emotional issues of their loved one’s addiction together. Family members can support each other while learning how to cope with the addiction and encourage healthy changes.

    Accordingly, couples therapy for drug addiction is designed for an addict and their significant other or spouse. The two will work with a therapist to learn how the addiction affects themselves and the relationship and how to break the negative patterns of behavior that may have developed.

    Drug addiction can destroy a person’s life, as well as their family and friends. The loss of one’s ability to choose how to live and behave often leads the addict into depression, anger, guilt, and many emotional problems.

    The therapies usually include siblings, children, and parents who are involved in their daily lives. These sessions are vital because they address past issues that may have hampered an addict’s or alcoholic’s recovery and provide support at a crucial time!

    One of the most critical aspects of family therapy is helping addicts’ loved ones see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things a family can do when a loved one struggles with addiction or alcoholism.

    Group therapy is held in a safe, controlled setting where patients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and gaining perspective through shared conversations. It takes place in a group rather than one on one to prevent feelings of isolation or being unique in their situation while creating an environment for addicts at James A. Haley VA Hospital to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.

    This type of therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to help addicts recover from past traumas that might have triggered their substance abuse. During these sessions, therapists will work with the addict to address painful memories and learn how to cope effectively with stressors as they arise.

    During these types of sessions, therapists will typically focus on three main goals:

    1. Identifying and expressing painful emotions associated with past traumas.
    2. Reducing the effects of stress on an addict’s life by developing more effective coping mechanisms.
    3. Developing healthy ways of thinking about stressful situations that can help addicts avoid substance abuse issues in the future.

    This type of therapy is typically used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services. By identifying and dealing with the root cause of addiction, most addicts can overcome their cravings and prevent relapse once they leave rehab.

    Many different types of addiction treatment services exist to help addicts safely get sober, but it’s important for recovering individuals to find a therapist or support group that will help them address the root cause of their addiction.

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that helps patients understand the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is beneficial for those whose addictions and behaviors stem from severe mental health issues. It aims to help the patient achieve their goals and identify how they can enhance their lives.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a talking-based method that helps people struggling with addiction replace destructive behaviors with healthier ones. CBT also helps them identify the underlying thoughts and beliefs that cause these behaviors in the first place and ways to control those thoughts and feelings. It can be administered as a holistic therapy or as part of combination therapy and—as opposed to turning to drugs and alcohol—helps addicts learn how to respond to negative thoughts instead.

    When you leave a healthy lifestyle behind to live as an addict, your body becomes unbalanced. Nutritional deficiencies gradually creep in, and before you know it, you’re facing severe health problems. For people who are trying to kick their drug addiction, nutrition therapy at James A. Haley VA Hospital is a great tool. It helps restore balance to the body, and for many addicts, it represents the first step on the road to recovery.

    Nicotine replacement therapy is a way for people to get the nicotine they are addicted to without having to smoke cigarettes. There are several different types of devices that have been approved for NRT. Studies have shown that all NRTs work better than placebo (fake treatment). NRT helps smokers get nicotine into their system without resorting to smoking and experiencing aggressive withdrawal symptoms. Coupling NRT with counseling and other means of support gives long-term smokers a better chance of removing their unhealthy habit.

    Patient Experience

    Experiential Therapy at James A. Haley VA Hospital

    Experiential Therapy is used by drug treatment facilities to treat substance abuse. This treatment is clinically proven to help addicts in detoxification by allowing them to release emotions in a safe environment. The treatment process involves addicts painting their feelings and releasing them on a canvas.

    One of the most popular forms of experiential therapy is known as LPE – Love, Peace, and Equilibrium. Amy Gumowitz developed this treatment in 1992. By implementing her philosophy of “reality therapy” into the treatment, Gumowitz’s results were outstanding. Once her success was validated by those she had been helping, she decided to open her treatment center. Although Gumowitz passed away in 2007, her contribution to the addiction recovery remains effective, and better yet, it is 100% self-sufficient.
