    Conditions and Issues Treated

    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.

    Levels of Care Offered at Operation PAR - 54th Avenue North

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Inpatient, Outpatient, Residential, 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 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.

    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.

    The main goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can occur without judgment, hostility, or blame that often occurs within a family.

    Family therapy is a type of group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the patient, their family, and sometimes friends. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate with each other differently, especially with the addict when s/he is using.

    The family can learn to reduce their enabling behavior or rally together and support each other during tough times. The patient also learns how to deal with their addiction and maintain sobriety while interacting with the family.

    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 Operation PAR - 54th Avenue North in St. Petersburg, 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.
