Jupiter Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources
Substance misuse is an epidemic in the United States, and Florida is taking a significant hit. Between 2011 and 2012, deaths that were attributed to heroin overdoses increased by an average of 89 percent. Certain counties showed an increase of 120 percent or more. This is a serious issue, and the governor of Florida even declared it a state of emergency.
Other substances are a problem in Florida as well. The misuse of illegal drugs like marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine is a real issue, but the misuse of legal medications like benzodiazepines, prescription opioids and stimulants or legal substances like alcohol is a bigger problem.
Addiction must be addressed as a disease, just as any other chronic illness. The stigma we place on drug and/or alcohol addiction in this country makes it exceedingly difficult for those who are suffering to ask for help. Would we condemn a cancer patient or a patient with chronic pain? No. Why, then, do we condemn patients who are suffering from substance use disorder?
Jupiter, Florida Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Rehab Centers
Are you seeking a drug rehab center in Jupiter, FL, or an alcohol rehab center in Jupiter, FL? There are different levels of treatment programs offered by most rehabilitation facilities. You may be in need of inpatient treatment, partial hospitalization or outpatient treatment. You will need to contact an addiction specialist in a rehabilitation facility to help you to formulate a plan for your treatment. Every individual has different needs when it comes to treating alcohol and/or drug addiction.
Also called an inpatient treatment program, in this program, patients have access to 24/7 medical care. A residential treatment program can be extremely effective for patients who have had a prolonged history of drug and/or alcohol misuse. It is also particularly effective for patients who do not have access to a stable living environment.
A PHP is a step below inpatient treatment, but it is more intensive than outpatient treatment. In a partial hospitalization program, care is provided during the day, but patients go home at night. There is structured programming designed to address a person’s addiction issues during the day, three to five days a week.
In an outpatient treatment program, patients live at home or in housing that is available on campus. This treatment program is ideal for those who are continuing treatment following the completion of an inpatient program or patients who do not have as severe of an addiction.
There are a lot of factors that will go into deciding the level of treatment program that is going to be the most beneficial for you. Does your insurance cover treatment? If not, what is your budget? What is your history with addiction? Is this your first time seeking treatment? What substances have you been using? Do you need to go through detox? These are all important questions to ask yourself when determining which treatment program will be the best for you.
Jupiter has several options for detox centers. Detoxing is important because it eliminates the destructive substances from your body, which is the first step toward long-term health. It also may be necessary for you to go through a medically assisted detox so that you won’t be tempted to use again when the withdrawal symptoms become too intense. In a Florida detox center, you are monitored and treated for withdrawal symptoms, which makes it easier and more comfortable.
While detoxing is important, it is only one step in the process. It is better to attend a facility that has a detox program along with a continuing treatment program. Detox is only the physical stage of addiction treatment. The real work of recovery begins in a treatment program when you are able to dive into the psychological, emotional, mental and spiritual issues that may have contributed to your substance misuse.

The goal of their organization is to help each other to get and stay sober. While AA encourages members to complete the 12 steps, work with a sponsor and attend meetings regularly, the only thing that it requires its members to have is a desire to stop drinking alcohol.
