Substance Abuse Resources in Melbourne

Melbourne Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Melbourne, Florida is a beautiful city, known for its tropical climate and sandy beaches. But in this vast paradise, there is a serious epidemic: substance abuse. Individuals throughout the state of Florida are misusing both illegal substances like heroin and marijuana as well as prescription medications like opioids and benzodiazepines.

Although the 2016 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey found that alcohol use declined overall between 2014 to 2016 among high school students, one in ten high school students reported binge drinking with one in six reporting blacking out from drinking. The substance misuse problem is no better among adults in Florida. According to the CDC, drug overdose death rates increased from 2014 to 2015.

If you suffer from drug and/or alcohol addiction, you may feel like you are alone in your struggle, but you are not.

Whether you’re seeking a drug rehab center in Melbourne, FL, or an alcohol rehab center in Melbourne, FL, there are many a lot of different options available to you.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Also known as inpatient treatment programs, residential treatment programs are a good fit for those who have a serious substance misuse problem. Those who need detox and do not have a stable home environment may want to think about an inpatient treatment program. Patients in this program have access to medical care 24 hours a day.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    In a partial hospitalization program, the patient has a little more flexibility. Typically, patients in a PHP do not stay on campus. They are allowed to stay in a responsible home environment or in housing on campus. They still have access to medical care and the rehabilitation curriculum of the residential treatment programs.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    The next step down is the outpatient treatment program. This program is beneficial for those who only have mild addiction issues or those who have already finished the inpatient program. Patients in this program stay on campus in housing that may be provided or at home with a responsible family member or loved one.

Searching for a drug or alcohol rehab facility can be a complicated thing. One of the reasons the national network of rehabilitation centers is so popular is that at a national facility, there will be a lot of expert professionals that will help you to determine which program you need.

Detox Centers

There are different options for detox centers in Melbourne. Detoxification is one of the most important things that you can do. It’s important to rid your body of whatever toxic substances you have become dependent upon. This is the first step to being clean and sober. It’s important to detox under medical supervision so that you can avoid relapse.

You should keep in mind, though, that detox is only the first step on your path to recovery. While the physical aspects of recovery are important, the real work of recovery is emotional, mental and psychological. This is why it’s important to find a facility that offers both detox and a treatment program.

The advantage of the national treatment facility like The Recovery Village is that both of these things are available. Addiction specialists will help you to come up with the individualized plan you need to start your recovery.

Recovery Meetings Near You

After your treatment program has been completed, it is imperative that you have an aftercare plan in place. One of the most important aspects of an effective aftercare plan is finding a recovery program that resonates with you. There are many options in Melbourne.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is a group that has been helping those with alcohol addiction get and stay sober for decades. It is a fellowship of men and women, sharing their experiences and their strength with each other. AA asks its members to complete the 12 steps with a sponsor (or an experienced member who has already completed the 12 steps and been sober for a year), but the only requirement for membership is a desire to start drinking. For those who recently completed alcohol treatment, Melbourne and nearby cities offer AA meetings throughout the area, including:

  • Melbourne Beach Group
    2010 S. Oak St.
    Melbourne Beach, FL 32951
  • Old Town Hall Men’s Group
    2373 Oak St.
    Melbourne Beach, FL 32951

  • Outreach Group
    8249 S. Hwy. A1A
    Melbourne Beach, FL 32951

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous is the 12-step program for those who are addicted to harder drugs. NA asks its members to complete the 12 steps as well, but members are only required to have a desire to stop using drugs. Though not as old as AA, NA is proven to help those with substance use disorder to avoid relapse and continue on their path to recovery. Regardless of where someone completed drug treatment, Melbourne’s NA meetings can help them stay in recovery for a lifetime.

SMART Recovery Meetings

SMART Recovery is an alternative to the traditional 12-step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. It centers around self-reliance and self-empowerment, and it sees substance use disorder as less of a disease and more of a series of destructive behaviors that can be managed. There are many SMART Recovery meetings throughout the world. Here are the two meetings closest to Melbourne.

  • Friendship Fellowship at Pineda
    3115 Friendship Pl.
    Rockledge, FL 32955
  • Indian River County Main Library

Al-Anon and Nar Anon Meetings

The people who have substance use disorder are not the only ones who suffer. The loved ones and family members of those who have substance use disorder go through a lot. It can be very emotionally exhausting to love someone who has drug and/or alcohol addiction. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon are two groups specifically for the loved ones of those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. It gives them a place to go and get support from others who understand what they are going through.

Give us a call at The Recovery Village, and our addiction professionals will ensure that you enroll in the ideal treatment program, whether it’s a Florida drug rehab facility or one in another state.
