Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at Meridian - Boy’s Recovery Center
Recovering from substance abuse is an essential part of a healthy life for many people. It’s a long and challenging process, but it can be worth it in the end if you manage to get through all parts. Detoxifying your body, rehabilitation after that time passes or when needed (depending on what type), and then recovery while also receiving therapy support throughout this entire process.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Lake City, FL
Within the past decade, opioid addiction has become a nationwide epidemic. The United States hosts one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use or abuse and has one of the highest rates of opioid-related deaths. In the United States, opioid drugs are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances due to their highly addictive properties and potential for abuse. These include morphine, opium, heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl. Physicians usually prescribe opioids to help control pain.
Over time, opioid users develop a tolerance for the drugs, which makes it difficult, if not impossible, to function without them. In turn, opioid users often resort to illicit means of obtaining the drugs. These means can include drug dealers, friends, and family members who do not have legitimate prescriptions for the drugs. Opioid addiction can quickly lead to heroin use, especially those seeking more intense highs than prescription opioids offer. Due to the high risk of overdose, heroin users are at a much higher risk for illness and death.
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. The specific mental health issues that the patient at Meridian - Boy’s Recovery Center might have include but are not limited to:
- Bipolar Disorder
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
The specific addiction issues that the patient might have include but are not limited to:
- Drug Addiction (i.e., Cocaine, Meth, and other stimulants, Marijuana, and Ecstasy)
The combination of the two illnesses can be tough to treat. 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 will be given the best chance at becoming sober.

Levels of Care Offered
offers a variety of treatment.
This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Outpatient, with additional therapies available as listed below.
Detoxification is a critical first step in treatment for drug addiction. Drug detoxification helps the individual withdraw from the drug by providing a controlled environment where symptoms can be managed through medication and close observation. Detoxification is an inflection point where the individual can get on a recovery track, but it’s also one of the most dangerous points in the recovery process.
In addition to going through physical withdrawal from certain drugs, a detox program also provides the individual with drug testing to monitor their progress. This way, if the individual is not ready for sobriety (such as if they relapse), the treatment professionals can catch it early on and use that opportunity to help re-orient the individual towards recovery.
Inpatient Treatment Program
Inpatient treatment centers offer a safe, secure, and often medically supervised environment for drug or alcohol-addicted individuals. Many of these facilities are equipped to provide detoxification, treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, and aftercare programs.
The patient typically spends 28 to 30 days at the facility and will receive extensive drug counseling. They will also learn how to live without drugs and how to make the right decisions in life.
Lake City, FL Outpatient Program
An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction or a co-occurring disorder. The treatment must attend the treatment facility for their therapy and other programs but return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of the treatment program is complete. The treatment programs are monitored by the treatment facility and case managers who work for a judge or judge’s office. A treatment program may be performed out of a treatment facility, treatment clinic, or treatment center.
The benefits of outpatient treatment programs are many. One of the most beneficial treatment programs is that it allows treatment for clients who cannot afford or may not be able to attend treatment at a treatment facility, treatment center, or treatment clinic full-time. Another benefit of treatment programs is that they reduce crime rates because treatment allows people to treat their addiction.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual.
Individualized Treatment is essential because it gives addicts the ability to participate in a program that meets their unique needs. An addict should work with professionals who understand what they’re going through, especially if the addict is actively using. Finding the right treatment program for an addict is difficult, but it’s even harder without communicating with those who have experience treating your specific situation.
Couples therapy is a treatment approach where the patients and their partners are engaged together. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and his people, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases. Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.
The therapies typically involve all family members, potentially including siblings, children, and parents who play a role in their daily lives. These sessions can be essential because they address past issues that may have affected an addict or alcoholic’s recovery process. They provide support during this time when it is needed most!
A family therapy session, often called a family meeting or intervention, is a necessary process that helps loved ones of addicts see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things families will ever have to do when they’re facing a loved one battling addiction or alcoholism.
Group therapy sessions provide recovering addicts with a chance to cope with everyday situations that many face. Group therapy sessions are held in rehab facilities, clinics, churches or community centers that offer drug addiction treatment.
People who attend these groups are encouraged to voice their feelings and support other addicts in recovery. This helps group members strengthen their own recovery program while cheering on others who are struggling with sobriety.
Trauma therapy allows them to work through past trauma to have peace of mind and begin down the road of sobriety. The therapist will work with the individual to help them understand their past and present relationships. Patients may often believe that something is inherently wrong with them or they are unworthy of love. The therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.
Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (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. It does not incorporate the use of medications or supplements. Instead, REBT focuses on helping people understand, respect, and accept their feelings without judgment.
A 12-step program is a mutual support group in which members share their experiences with addiction. The goal of these programs is to provide support and encouragement throughout the recovery process.
12-step programs are beneficial for:
- Individuals who have already stopped drug/alcohol use
- Individuals who have already stopped drug/alcohol use, and are looking for a support system to maintain sobriety
- People who may be thinking about quitting their drug/alcohol use
- People who do not have access to other types of addiction treatment
