    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. Overuse of these substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence.

    Substance abuse is treatable and the duration of treatment and most successful sobriety can require weeks or months of professional care at Larkin Community Hospital in South Miami.

    Addiction is often caused by an underlying issue. Mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or anxiety disorder could lie at the root. A dual diagnosis by Larkin Community Hospital aims to treat the addiction as well as the cause of the addiction. This ensures the patient will not fall back on old ways after treatment is complete.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Detox is the stage of recovery where the drugs or alcohol are fully removed from your body. As you stop using, your body metabolizes the last dose or drink and starts sending triggers to your brain to get more. These cues lead to cravings. If additional substances are not obtained you begin to go through withdrawal. Your body begins to reset chemical pathways and other metabolic processes begin which can be extremely uncomfortable.

    There are two different ways to detox, with medications and without. Depending on your level of addiction and what you are using, you may need medical supervision. For many drugs and alcohol, the acute phase of detox can be completed in a number of days. Cravings and certain longer-term withdrawal symptoms may remain for longer as your body completely rids itself of the drug and relearns how to function without it.

    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.
