Palm Bay Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Unfortunately, Palm Bay, Florida is not just the home of the beautiful Indian River and scenic views. It is also a city where many residents are being haunted by drug and alcohol addiction.

Substance abuse can be incredibly destructive in the lives of individuals and families. Legal drugs like prescription medicines (stimulants, opioids and benzodiazepines, for example) can be just as harmful as illicit street drugs like cocaine and heroin.

In Florida, there has been a real opioid epidemic since 1996 when OxyContin entered the market. Within just a few years, hundreds of pain clinics were popping up all over the state. People from other states would travel down I-75 — which was commonly referred to as the “Oxy Express — to obtain the “hillbilly heroin”. It got to the point where 90% of all prescription opioids that were dispensed by US physicians were sold in Florida. To this day, it is still a serious issue that affects the whole state, and Palm Bay is no exception.

Is there a solution to this problem? The first step is getting those who are suffering from alcohol and/or drug addiction to look for addiction treatment in Palm Bay. This is the most important first step on a journey to long-term recovery.

Palm Bay, Florida Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Rehab Centers

There are a number of opportunities available when you are thinking about exploring your options for drug or alcohol rehab in Palm Bay. The first step you want to take is to discover the treatment program that will be the most effective for you. It is essential that you find the treatment program that will work for you specifically as every substance use disorder is unique. Are you seeking a drug rehab center in Palm Bay, FL, or an alcohol rehab center in Palm Bay, FL? Before you can decide on a treatment program, you will need to understand the different programs that are available to you.

  • Connector.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    In this program, patients will be given 24/7 access to medical supervision. This is also known as an inpatient program, and it is the best fit for those who have a more serious addiction. If you need to complete detox first, this will likely be the program you be enrolled in after.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    While patients in a PHP are still given the opportunity to participate in the curriculum that residential treatment patients participate in, they are able to go home in the evenings.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    The most flexible option of the three, the outpatient treatment program is a good fit for those patients who do not need as intensive care, those patients who have already completed the other two programs or those patients who work or have families.

With the number of options that are available to you, how can you decide which treatment program will work for you? How do you know which facility is going to be the best? A national treatment facility like The Recovery Village will have addiction specialists that will be able to help you determine the best treatment program for you.

Detox Centers

Palm Bay detox centers are available to you. If you are addicted to benzodiazepines, opiates or alcohol, you may require more detox than other substances. You will complete any necessary detox before the treatment program begins. You may try to use drugs again if you try to detox on your own. At a detox center, you will receive medical attention throughout the whole process.

The recovery journey often begins with detox, but you need to remember that detox is only a beginning. The psychological or emotional aspects of your substance use disorder will not be treated at a detox center. It is best to choose a rehabilitation facility that will offer both detox and an appropriate treatment program. In a treatment program, the more significant aspects of your substance use disorder will be treated.

Because national treatment facilities offer detox, residential treatment programs, partial hospitalization programs, outpatient programs and aftercare, a large number of patients will choose a facility like The Recovery Village.

It was founded in 1935, and it has helped recovering alcoholics to stay sober for decades. The 12 steps of AA ask members to look to a higher power and to help others, but the only thing you will need to have to be a member is the desire to stop drinking alcohol. Regardless of where you completed alcohol treatment, Palm Bay’s AA meetings can help you stay sober for a lifetime.
