Clearwater Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Around the U.S., the opioid epidemic has reached critical mass. In the state of Florida, officials have seen substantial numbers of people addicted to narcotics and seen the devastation that it causes. Communities like Clearwater are no exception.

The types of drugs that are on the rise include prescription opioids like oxycodone as well as illegal drugs like heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine or marijuana. In 2014, nearly two million people were estimated to be misusing prescription painkillers. That same year, there were more than 28,000 deaths from opioid overdoses. Even as legislators, law enforcement officers and doctors are trying to get the problem under control, addicts are able to purchase from dealers on the street.

Finding Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Clearwater, Florida

Clearwater, Florida Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Rehab Centers

A comfortable habit — no matter how destructive it is — can be difficult to stop. The road to recovery can be long and even dangerous. This is where enrolling in a drug and/or alcohol rehabilitation center can help. Are you seeking a drug rehab center in Clearwater, FL, or an alcohol rehab center in Clearwater, FL? Currently, there are at least three drug and alcohol treatment facilities in the city and the surrounding area. Florida addiction treatment facilities, as well as those in other states, may be either sponsored by a government agency or operate as a non-profit or a private organization. Nationally branded facilities can offer a wider range of services than ones that are operated by local or state government agencies. Rehab centers like The Recovery Village offer the following types of treatment:

  • Connector.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    A residential treatment program is a facility where patients are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A residential treatment program can be the best choice for those who are just starting down the road to recovery or who haven’t gone through detox yet. Patients at a residential treatment facility can stay for periods of time which can range from approximately 30 to as many as 90 days.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) have fewer restrictions for patients than residential inpatient treatment program facilities do. A PHP provides housing and access to medical staff during a patient’s stay at the facility. This type of program is most effective for those patients who have already gone through detox or who have previously stayed at an inpatient residential treatment program.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    An outpatient treatment program can be ideal for those patients with mild addictions or are advanced in their treatment. Individuals who take part in an outpatient treatment program can choose where they wish to stay. This type of treatment program can be less disruptive to the lives of patients and their families.

Inpatient treatment therapies are sometimes more successful for some patients because the detached environment allows them to remove themselves from situations that were familiar and helped support their drug misuse. An inpatient facility will have staff members that include doctors and counselors specially trained to help those addicted to drugs and alcohol. Along with group therapy, a treatment facility that offers a full continuum of care like The Recovery Village can offer a road to recovery with the highest chance of success.

Detox Centers

There is no denying that detoxification can be extremely stressful for both patients and their loved ones. In cases where a patient is facing long-term or severe addiction, a detox center can help with the medical issues surrounding withdrawal. Sometimes medical intervention is necessary to prevent further damage to a patient, or even keep them alive in severe cases. Opioid users often need to go through a lengthy detox session to overcome their problem.

However, going through detox is just the first step for patients on their road to recovery. While a detox center can help, patients get through the first big hurdle, many of them don’t have continuing support. Facilities which have a wide range of treatment options are usually the most successful in treating patients. If you are seeking treatment and are unsure as to what type of center is right for you, look for those facilities which include treatments that range from detox, medical therapies, counseling and ongoing support. This will ensure the greatest chance of success.
