Plant City

Plant City, Florida is known for regal scenery and sites like Edward Medard Regional Park, but there is something sinister haunting many of its citizens: alcohol and drug addiction. Substance abuse is a real problem, whether you are talking about legal substances like alcohol or prescription benzodiazepines or illegal substances like marijuana and cocaine. This is becoming an epidemic for the state of Florida, and the citizens of Plant City are no exception.

There is an opiate epidemic in the state of Florida. Disturbingly, Florida doctors prescribe OxyContin at a rate that is 5 times the national average. There are actually more pain clinics in Florida than there are McDonalds. This is a serious problem that is destroying the lives of many people.

In America, so many people look down on those who are affected by the disease of alcohol and drug addiction. Because of this, it can be a challenge for anyone to ask for help when they truly need it. However, for those who are seeking drug addiction treatment in Plant City, help is available.

Plant City, Florida Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Rehab Centers

There will be a plethora of choices that you will have when you are researching drug addiction treatment in Plant City. Whether you’re seeking a drug or alcohol rehab center in Plant City, it’s important to know the difference between the treatment programs. Finding a treatment program that will be effective for you in your current situation is so important. There are several aspects of your substance use disorder that you will need to evaluate to determine the best treatment program for you like your history with addiction, your living environment and your financial situation. You may need one, two or all of the following programs:

Residential Treatment Programs

In a residential treatment program, which is also called an inpatient treatment program, patients have access to 24/7 medical supervision. They stay on campus, and their curriculum consists of therapy (group and individual), classes and healing activities.

Partial Hospitalization Programs

In a partial hospitalization program, which is also called a PHP or a “dayhab”, patients have access to medical care, but they are allowed to go home at night. Their curriculum also involves therapy (group and individual), classes and healing activities.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

In an outpatient treatment program, patients also have access to medical care though typically they are not in need of it. They are also allowed to live at home or in on-campus housing. Their curriculum is the same with therapy (individual and group), classes and healing activities.

National treatment centers are so popular because the addiction specialists are all specially trained to help you to decide on a treatment program that will work for you.

Detox Centers

You don’t have to look very far to find a detox center. There are quite a few in Plant City. If you are addicted to alcohol, opiates or benzodiazepines, you may require more detox than other substances. Before any sort of treatment program, the detox process must be completed. If you attempt the detoxification process without medical supervision, it could be dangerous or even deadly. However, at a detox center, you will have the medical supervision that you need throughout the whole process.

While detox is certainly important, it is only the first step on a path to recovery. A detox center will only treat the physical aspects of your substance misuse. The real work begins with the mental, spiritual and emotional aspects of your substance misuse. It is absolutely essential that you find a facility that allows for both detox and a residential treatment program. You will start to do the significant work to begin your recovery in a treatment program.

For patients who are looking for drug or alcohol rehab facilities that offer detox and treatment programs, national treatment centers are an obvious choice. These facilities also provide patients with aftercare plans that are sure to prevent setbacks.

There are many recovery programs in your area like SMART Recovery and the well-known 12-step programs. An essential part of staying clean and sober is finding one that resonates with you.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

The international fellowship of men and women helping each other stay sober is known as Alcoholics Anonymous or AA. Founded by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in 1935, AA’s primary purpose is to help alcoholics achieve and maintain sobriety. The tenants of AA are the 12 steps, which involve turning over your alcoholism to a higher power, examining past mistakes and helping other people who have alcohol addiction. Experienced members of AA are called sponsors, and new members are encouraged to find a sponsor to work the 12 steps with. The only thing that new members are required to have, though, is the desire to stop drinking alcohol. Throughout the world, there are over 100,000 meetings. Regardless of where you completed alcohol treatment, Plant City offers AA meetings to help you stay in recovery for a lifetime.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Another 12-step program, Narcotics Anonymous was established in 1953. It is meant for people who are addicted to narcotics and other substances. Those who are addicted to harder drugs like methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine can feel out of place at AA meetings, but they are welcome at NA. Like members in AA, the NA members are encouraged to follow the 12 steps although to become a member of NA, you only need the desire to stop using drugs. If you recently completed drug treatment, Plant City’s NA meetings can help you continue living a drug-free life.

SMART Recovery Meetings

Unlike 12-step groups like NA and AA, SMART Recovery gives those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol a different approach. In SMART Recovery – which means Self-Management for Addiction Recovery – there’s a 4-point system that includes building motivation, coping with urges, managing emotions and living a balanced life. SMART Recovery views addiction as a destructive behavior that is able to be managed and not a disease. There are in-person meetings as well as online meetings. If you’re seeking a Plant City, Florida drug rehab or alcohol rehab center that offers these meetings, consider The Recovery Village. There are also meetings at the following locations:

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

It can be emotionally exhausting to support someone who is in recovery. Being the mother, father, sibling, spouse, son, daughter, friend or relative of someone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol is not always easy. Often, the loved ones of those in recovery need their own support. This is why Al-Anon and Nar-Anon were founded. In these 12-step groups, family members and friends of those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol to support each other. In the Plant City area, there are several meetings.
