    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in West Palm Beach, 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.

    Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at West Palm Beach VA Medical Center

    The most common co-occurring disorders are schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder. Most rehab facilities in Florida provide patients with a dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis gives rehab the means to treat addiction while restoring mental and emotional health. West Palm Beach VA Medical Center‘s team of doctors, counselors, nurses, therapists and other medical staff will conduct a comprehensive assessment. They will determine the appropriate treatments for an individual patient to maximize their chances of recovery.

    Recovery is not simply about stopping drug use. Recovery is working with addiction while recovering mental health issues that are fueling the addiction in the first place.

    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Drug Detox

    Detox is the first step of rehab. It involves giving a person time to get the toxins out of their body. During detox, the patient gets ill and they will often start using again to get rid of these unpleasant feelings. That’s why it’s so important to have a West Palm Beach medical professional at West Palm Beach VA Medical Center present. A Florida medical professional will make sure patients don’t start using during detox. They will also provide medication to ease their symptoms and coach them through on a mental level.

    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.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Addicts who need help with their addiction can enroll in an intensive outpatient program (IOP). But the patient won’t live there during treatment.

    IOP involves patients visiting a medical office building regularly for therapy and other services while continuing to live their lives.

    IOP is a step up from drug or alcohol detox, but it’s still a phase of recovery, not the end goal. Patients in need of IOP have many options for rehab and treatment.

    Outpatient Program

    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.

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) in West Palm Beach, FL

    PHP is a program where the individual is cared for in a hospital-like environment during the struggle of those symptoms, but still have some of the freedoms of an outpatient form of treatment. The individual may sleep at the facility each night, or they may sleep at home, but all have more monitoring than an outpatient treatment program typically offers. A PHP is able to live at home, attend school, work or perform other daily activities. This appeals to many families due to the ability of their loved one to still have some freedoms while also receiving treatment for their addiction.

    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

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy involves one-on-one sessions between the patient and therapist. It provides patients with a safe environment to openly discuss personal and sensitive issues with the therapist. 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.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy works with clients and significant others in a professional capacity to improve relationship dynamics. This can be helpful for addicts who are trying to marry the idea of recovery into their work, family, social lives – any aspect that has to do with relationships.

    Through counseling sessions, addicts will have an opportunity to talk about their addiction with professional partners. These partners can offer feedback and advice on how to get sober while keeping healthy relationships intact. A good couples therapist will help addicts understand their part in an unhealthy relationship dynamic or find ways to deal with anger or resentment from significant others outside of the home.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is a group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the addict, their family, and sometimes friends. The main goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can occur without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate 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.

    An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem. Family therapy is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. When a drug addict decides that they want to try and get sober, it takes the support of every person they love to succeed. It can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to watch an addict go through the pain and suffering of withdrawal, but by being there with them and supporting them, they can help to make sure that the addiction never returns.

    Groups typically involve meetings with other recovering addicts who can relate to one another’s experiences. They might meet in person or online and typically focus on the process of staying sober rather than overcoming a specific addiction.

    In these groups managed by West Palm Beach VA Medical Center, addicts can build a sense of community and develop strong emotional connections with others who understand what they are going through. These beneficial relationships can help addicts overcome their cravings and prevent relapse at any point during the recovery process.

    In general, trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. The therapist helps the person identify, understand, and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.

    There are many different types of trauma therapists, such as psychiatric nurses and counselors. Not everyone is a good candidate for this type of therapy; it is generally reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is often done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.

    REBT, or Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy, is a way of replacing negative thoughts with positive ones. It teaches people how to deal effectively with their unwanted habits and emotions. Some common problems people have are procrastination, unhealthy eating, and angry outbursts. Learning how to deal with these problems in a productive manner makes them less apt to come back.

    MNT is a type of treatment for addictions such as drug abuse or alcoholism where patients receive counseling while learning about healthy eating habits. Florida dietitians work closely with counselors during these sessions on meal planning, cooking demonstrations, shopping tips, grocery store tours, and food education.

    The goal of medical nutrition therapy for drug and alcohol addiction is to help patients avoid “trigger” foods. For example, someone who craves alcohol may be addicted to sugar. Making sure this person eats a balanced diet with recommended amounts of protein, vegetables, and fruit can help manage urges to drink.

    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.

    Patient Experience

    Experiential Therapy at West Palm Beach VA Medical Center

    Experiential Therapy teaches people how to think differently about their lives and change their emotions by changing their behavior. This type of treatment is accomplished with various activities that may involve acting, props, arts and crafts, animal care, or other tools that may be effective.

    This therapy aims for patients to release suppressed thoughts that cause bad feelings and drug addiction. Role-playing, arts and crafts, music, animal care, rock climbing, etc., are some of the activities used in this therapy. Gradually an individual will feel calmer and more loving which will change their perception positively. In addition to treating drug addiction, experiential therapy is beneficial for different behavioral and eating disorders.
