It’s not easy getting sober on one’s own, or even going to rehab and escaping the grasp of addiction by oneself. Substance abuse treatment gives addicts a place to stay sober while learning what it takes to quit for good.

Treatment centers such as WestCare GulfCoast - Port Richey focus on the needs of individual addicts to heal them. There is a combination of physical and mental therapies that treat the root cause of the addiction, whether it be family problems, stress, or past traumatic events.

The final benefit of substance abuse treatment is introducing new people who can help in your recovery after you leave WestCare GulfCoast - Port Richey. Through group therapy sessions with other addicts and attending support meetings once a day, a person will learn how to interact with others and cope with cravings. This is a chance for you to rebuild your social circle healthily after you leave treatment.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at WestCare GulfCoast - Port Richey

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. WestCare GulfCoast - Port Richey‘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, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

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 Port Richey medical professional at WestCare GulfCoast - Port Richey 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
