Pinellas Park Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Everyone knows Pinellas Park, Florida is the home of gorgeous sites like Freedom Lake Park, but many people do not know it is also the home to many residents who are plagued by drug and alcohol addiction. Any substance can be dangerous or even deadly when misused including both illegal drugs like heroin and cocaine and legal drugs like prescription opioids and alcohol. For the citizens of Pinellas Park as well as residents in the entire state of Florida, this is a real epidemic.

In Florida, there is an opioid epidemic. Prescription painkillers like OxyContin have led to an even bigger crisis. As officials in the state began to crack down on the prescription opiates, many people turned to heroin because they could get that cheaper and OxyContin and heroin are chemically similar. This is a real problem that is destroying the lives of many individuals and families.

In this country, there is such a stigma associated with substance use disorder that it can be a challenge for anyone to ask for help when they need it. But finding alcohol or drug rehab in Pinellas Park is possible if you are willing to be brave.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    This program is for the most severe addiction cases. Patients who are enrolled in an inpatient treatment program or a residential treatment program are medically supervised 24/7, and they will participate in group and individual therapy, healing activities, classes and 12-step work. They will be staying on campus in the rehabilitation facility.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    This program is for patients whose addictions are not as severe or for patients who have already successfully completed the residential treatment program. Patients who are enrolled in a PHP are given some medical care, and they will participate in group and individual therapy, healing activities, classes and 12-step work. They will be staying in housing provided on campus or in a stable, drug-free home.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    This program is for patients whose addictions are more moderate or for patients who have already successfully completed the residential treatment program and/or a PHP. Patients who are enrolled in an outpatient treatment program are given minimal medical care, and they will participate in group and individual therapy, healing activities, classes and 12-step work. They will be staying in housing provided on campus or in a stable, drug-free home.

How can you decide which treatment program you need? You may need the evaluation of an addiction professional. One of the benefits of a national treatment center like The Recovery Village is the professionals and experts on staff that are able to help you.

Detox Centers

In Pinellas Park, there are many detox centers. If you are addicted to opiates, benzodiazepines or alcohol, you may require more detox than other substances. Before a treatment program begins, the first thing you’ll need to do is detoxify your body. You may relapse if you try to detox on your own. To get you through the process, a detox center will ensure that you have the medical supervision you will require.

It is essential to comprehend, however, that rehabilitation is a process, and detoxification is only the first step. You will not begin the emotional or psychological work involved in recovery at a detox center. It is beneficial for you to select a treatment center that will allow you to detox and then begin an appropriate treatment program. In a treatment program, you can start to do the real work.

Many people choose The Recovery Village or a similar national treatment center because they are able to get detoxification assistance along with an appropriate treatment program. An effective aftercare plan is also put into place to help patients avoid relapse.

Recovery Meetings Near You

After you have finished an inpatient or outpatient treatment program, it’s critical that you find a recovery program – like Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous or SMART Recovery – that works for you.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is the international mutual aid fellowship that was founded by Dr. Bob Smith and Bill Wilson in 1935. The main goal of AA is to help alcoholics to achieve sobriety and stay sober. At the core of AA are 12 steps that ask those recovering from alcohol addiction turn their alcoholism over to a higher power, account for previous mistakes and reach out to those who are addicted to alcohol that are still suffering. While members of AA are encouraged to complete the 12 steps with a sponsor (an experienced AA member who has already worked the steps), the only thing it requires of members is to have a desire to stop drinking. Regardless of where you completed alcohol treatment, Pinellas Park’s AA meetings can give you the support you need to stay sober.

Narcotics Anonymous was established in 1953, and it is like Alcoholics Anonymous but for those who are addicted to harder drugs. NA is the second largest recovery group in the world with over 67,000 meetings in 139 countries. The 12 steps in NA are just like the 12 steps in AA, which include turning your life over to a higher power and making amends for previous mistakes. To become an NA member, you only need to have the desire to stop using drugs. If you recently completed drug treatment, Pinellas Park offers several NA meetings that can help you stay in recovery for a lifetime.

Self-Management for Addiction Recovery is SMART Recovery. It is the biggest recovery program that is a 12-step alternative.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

Being the father, mother, son, daughter, sibling, spouse, relative or friend of someone in recovery can be difficult. It can be taxing to always support someone who is addicted to drugs and alcohol. The loved ones of those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol will continue to support them because they love them, but sometimes they will need support of their own. Nar-Anon and Al-Anon are the 12-step groups that offer that support for friends and family members. Here are the meetings in the Pinellas Park area.
