Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Jacksonville, FL
Opioid addiction starts when a person becomes addicted to legal or illegal opioids. The addiction can happen quickly, in just a matter of days. Opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and lead the user to continue to use even if they want to quit. Stopping using an opioid requires medical observation. Sometimes inpatient treatment with a medically supervised detox is necessary for managing the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools for maintaining recovery. Medications may be used in some cases of opioid addiction.
Opioid addiction is one of Florida‘s most prominent forms of addiction. It’s treated by detoxifying the body so that the chemicals from the medications no longer impact them and by therapies to correct behavior and target the root of the problem.

Inpatient Treatment Program
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 is considered the lower intensity level of addiction treatment. It’s ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may include weekly sessions instead of daily. It may include weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be involved but at a lesser frequency than an intensive outpatient program. It is a good choice for someone who doesn’t need to go through a medically supervised detox and who has a supportive home environment. It requires motivation and dedication to commit to the program without constant monitoring.
Sober living homes (abbreviated SLHs or sometimes sober houses) are temporary housing for recovering addicts. The typical SLH functions as a halfway house, providing a stable living environment for addicts in recovery. While at an SLH, residents typically meet with various therapists on site and attend regular 12-step meetings as well as other recovery group meetings.
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.
Aftercare support should take place after outpatient treatment has ended. There are a few different types of aftercare support that patients can seek. These include 12 Step, Self-help groups (AA, NA), Therapeutic communities, Long-term, structured sober living arrangements, and Halfway houses (residential treatment centers).
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this Jacksonville, FL Facility.

They find the therapist as someone they can trust. Individual therapy aims to identify the core issues that would have led the patient to substance abuse and address them effectively. The therapist can develop patient-specific customized solutions through individual therapy, which aids speedier recovery.
Since addiction is a chronic physical and mental illness, addicts need to learn as many life skills as possible. Many drug treatment centers offer life skills activities as part of their addiction recovery programs. Examples include cooking classes, employment training, resume writing seminars, parenting classes, and computer training. Life skills activities help addicts find employment, take care of their families, and give back to the community.
