Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen every single day…
Just as every person is unique, everyone has a different experience with addiction. Thus, it is most effective to approach addiction treatment using a recovery plan that is tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Perhaps the most significant example of individualization at The Recovery Village is the care we take in matching you with a therapist.

Our Director of Clinical Services will evaluate your situation, personality and a few other factors to then match you with the staff therapist who will best be able to address your needs. Your primary therapist becomes your go-to person for help. They coordinate your recovery plan and stay with you as your therapist from the beginning to the end of treatment. At The Recovery Village, we structure the drug rehabilitation process around the following four steps:

  1. Assessment – This begins when you first speak to one of our caring addiction advisors over the phone or through our web chat service. When you make the decision to fight your addiction with us and seek help, your team of doctors and therapists begin crafting an individualized treatment plan for you. Your recovery plan is yours and yours alone, based on your communication style, circumstances, co-occurring level of addiction and many other factors. Once you enter treatment, your plan may evolve as your treatment team gets to know you even better.
  2. Detoxification – When you arrive on campus, detox is the first step if you have been using amphetamines in the days or weeks prior to your arrival. This is necessary because your mind can only be clear enough to enter recovery once your body is free from harmful drugs. Because detox can be dangerous without medical supervision, you should undergo this process at a fully credentialed treatment facility that has medical doctors onsite, such as The Recovery Village.
  3. Rehabilitation – When detox is over, the emotional healing process can begin. During rehab, you will work with your treatment team — especially your therapist — to figure out the core issues that drove the development of your addiction. You will engage in regular one-on-one therapy with your therapist, as well as group therapy. You will receive medical support from your doctor, and your psychiatrist will provide any psychiatric assistance that you may need for recovery.
  4. Aftercare – Addiction disease cannot be fully cured, however there is treatment and it can be managed. In order to ensure that the disease remains inactive, aftercare is necessary. You made it through the hardest part — now it’s time to bring the skills you’ve learned back into the real world outside of the supportive safe haven here on The Recovery Village’s campus. We will help you arrange a complete aftercare and relapse prevention plan prior to your discharge and departure.
After detoxification, rehabilitation begins. Depending upon the factors involved in your addiction disease, you may be a candidate for inpatient rehab. This form of treatment — also called residential rehab — allows you to live onsite at The Recovery Village, where you benefit from daily care and medical oversight. Residential treatment is necessary if you are not able to be unsupervised due to the intensity of your amphetamine cravings.

While in inpatient treatment at The Recovery Village, you will stay in one of our well-appointed rooms on our Florida campus. We know our facility is not the same as staying at home, so we’ve worked to ensure your residential surrounds will keep you as comfortable as possible. Residential rooms are tastefully designed with soothing colors and come complete with plush bedspreads, soft carpeting and fluffy towels. Your focus should remain on recovery, so our housekeeping staff takes care of the cleaning and our dietician will prepare healthy, satisfying meals for you during your stay.

During the day, you have the chance to engage in a variety of therapies. You will begin to develop the recovery and life skills that are necessary for you to enter and remain in lasting recovery. You will learn to improve your daily function not only through meetings with your therapist and support groups, but also through alternative therapies such as art or recreation therapy. Many people in inpatient rehab with addiction disease suffer from a co-occurring mental illness such as depression or bipolar disorder. This is called a dual diagnosis. If your psychiatrist determines you would benefit from pharmaceutical intervention, you will benefit from our full medication management services as well.

Inpatient rehab can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. It all depends on your unique addiction circumstances and how you respond to medical treatment. Studies show, however, that the longer a person stays in treatment, the more likely they are to succeed in maintaining their recovery long-term. Some people find that traveling out-of-state for inpatient treatment provides them with the feeling of getting a fresh start. Although sometimes it is necessary to undergo treatment close to home, you may benefit from branching out. You may want to discuss this with your family before deciding where to receive help. Our addiction advisors are also available to you to answer questions and relay other patients’ experiences, in hopes of helping to make your decision easier.

You may wonder if you really need inpatient care. Only a treatment professional can determine this. This is why evaluation and assessment is the first step of building a treatment plan. If you must tend to work or family obligations and cannot live onsite for inpatient treatment, you may be admitted to our partial hospitalization program, which is a step down from residential rehab.

If you do not need inpatient care or partial hospitalization, you may be directed to a lower level of supervision such as outpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab is only suitable for those who are at a level of recovery wherein you are able to be alone without succumbing to intense cravings.

The difference between inpatient and outpatient rehab has to do with the amount of time you spend on campus and in therapy. While inpatient requires that you live onsite, outpatient rehab means you engage in therapy part-time and can return home to sleep in your own bed at night.

Group therapy is a significant part of all treatment plans at The Recovery Village. Group sessions provide a safe, supportive environment where you and your peers can talk about a variety of experiences related to your addictions. This may include sharing painful memories or sharing your successes in treatment. Everything you discuss with others is to remain confidential to the outside world so you can feel confident in opening up.

At The Recovery Village, all group therapy sessions are led by one or more of our therapists. This ensures that the group stays on track and everyone in the group gets the opportunity to participate. This way, everyone who wishes to speak has the chance.

Sessions are usually about an hour long and are held several times per week, with different topics each time. Some of the most common group therapy topics may include:

Living with addiction in remission
Managing stressful situations
Handling difficult emotions
Coping w/ drug abuse triggers
Fending off cravings
Getting past withdrawal symptoms
Living with grief / Eating well
Preventing and handling relapses
Maintaining healthy relationships
Avoiding codependency
Managing medications
Dealing with mental illness
Working through trauma
Establishing positive body image
Developing good social skills
Working within family dynamics
This form of therapy provides recovering addicts with the chance to learn new coping techniques, practice their communication skills, and gain hope and strength from their peers. Perhaps most importantly, group sessions reinforce a crucial message — you are not alone. Whether the person next to you is also struggling with amphetamine abuse, or they are facing something totally different, such as alcoholism, you can support one another and develop a friendship based on sobriety and the desire to get well again. Some group therapy sessions may be dedicated to family. After all, addiction is rarely an isolated issue, but rather a sign of dysfunction in your personal life — specifically when it comes to family members.

Family therapy sessions enable spouses, partners, parents, or children to join you for counseling. These people may be invited to private family group sessions or to open group sessions held alongside your peers and their families. Family group therapy is rarely easy, as it often brings up troubling issues like relationship conflicts, other family members’ substance abuse problems, or past hurtful experiences within the family unit. Despite the discomfort, it is crucial to your healing that you and your family address these problems together in counseling. This allows you to heal alongside the people you love most.

Paired Dual Diagnosis and Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
It is very common for people undergoing addiction treatment to have comorbid disorders. If you are struggling with amphetamine addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder, recovery can feel almost impossible. Your addiction and mental health symptoms exacerbate one another, causing constant inner and outer turmoil.

At The Recovery Village, we offer an integrated treatment approach to treating our dual diagnosis patients. Our staff will incorporate mental health recovery tactics into your addiction recovery plans from your first day on campus. In decades past, people were instructed to simply “quit” using drugs and were only allowed mental health treatment if they were already sober.

However, it has become clear that comprehensive treatment is the best way to reach lasting recovery from both the addiction and the mental health disorder. The ultimate goal is to help you become stable, healthy and sober.

Generally speaking, if you are addicted to amphetamines and also notice symptoms of a mental health problem, you may have a dual diagnosis and need treatment for both conditions. In order to detect mental illness, you need a professional psychiatric evaluation. However, take note if you feel sad or anxious much of the time, or if you have recently self-harmed or thought of suicide. Also take note if you have ongoing relationship or employment difficulties, as these can indicate a mental health condition.

Payment — in some form or another — is required for rehab services. If you have health insurance, your provider may offer coverage for addiction services. The cost of amphetamine addiction treatment is very different from facility to facility. Without insurance, private drug rehab can cost upwards of $100,000. Some state-funded programs may be available free of cost, but many report that they are overcrowded and do not provide the same level of therapy that patients receive at private centers. Other programs may be subsidized and cost between $1,500 and $8,000. However, insurance is the best route.

Does Insurance Cover Amphetamines Treatment?

Some facilities accept health insurance as payment, while others accept only cash payment in full at the time of admission. It is in your best interest to seek maximum benefits from your provider to make sure you get the recovery treatment you need. The Recovery Village is happy to work with many insurance providers to help give our patients access to addiction treatment at a low cost or no cost to them. If you need understanding the insurance process or your coverage, our addiction treatment advisors at The Recovery Village are always available to help you at no cost. On a related note, not all health insurance plans fully cover rehab services. Many providers offer insurance coverage for several levels of treatment, depending on your needs, but they may limit the time you spend in rehab. Some providers will only pay for outpatient programs, which tend to be cheaper than inpatient options.

Alternative Payment Options

If you lack insurance, there are several alternative financing options available to you. First, you may go the personal route. That is, you can utilize your own personal financing by dipping into your savings account, or you can seek personal loans from loved ones and let them know that you need help to pay for addiction treatment.You may also choose to seek state and local government assistance through a state substance abuse agency, one of your area’s state-funded treatment centers, or the government programs Medicare or Medicaid. If you are a veteran, you may be able to access additional benefits. You may call our intake coordinators at any time, as well, if you have additional questions about the cost of rehab and possible alternative payment options.
