Rotonda West Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation and Treatment

There are different types of drug and alcohol rehab and treatment programs. For many people who struggle with addiction, treatment occurs along a continuum. This means a person may not just take part in one particular type of treatment. Instead, they may participate in several levels of care.

  • Medical detox may be the first phase of someone’s drug and alcohol treatment. Many substances can cause severe withdrawal symptoms when an individual stops using them. It’s important to fully detox from all substances before transitioning into other levels of treatment. During medical detox, these symptoms can be monitored and alleviated.
  • After a person has detoxed from all substances, they may begin rehabilitation. This could take place in an inpatient or outpatient setting. Day treatment programs, also called partial hospitalization programs, are also available.
  • Aftercare and continuing care are implemented after someone completes rehab.

What Is the Process Like in a Drug Detox and Rehab Facility?

It can be intimidating to think about going to a drug detox and rehab facility, especially if you aren’t sure what to expect. The drug treatment process or alcohol treatment process should be individualized, but there are also some general phases you can expect to occur along the way.

The first step of nearly any program is going to be a full intake assessment. You’ll meet with different members of your treatment team during this time, including a doctor, psychologists and therapists. You may feel shame or embarrassment about your history of substance abuse, but it’s important to be forthcoming and honest during your assessment. This is how your treatment team can create a plan that’s going to work best for your needs.

Beyond that, you may then transition to a medical detox if you haven’t already detoxed. Medical detox allows you to be safe and comfortable as you go through withdrawal, and it can help prevent relapse in these early days.

The next transitional step is rehabilitation. Rehabilitation can include one-on-one therapy and group therapy. It may include recreational therapy and holistic treatment as well since addiction affects you physically, mentally and spiritually.

The final phase of treatment is aftercare planning for when you transition back to daily life. This can help you to work on strategies to remain substance-free over the long-term.

Finding the Best Rehab Program for You

There are a lot of rehab programs available both in Florida and around the nation. The challenge for a lot of people and their families is how to find the best rehab center with so many available programs. The best drug rehab center for one person might not be the right choice for you. You have to really weigh your personal needs with the qualifications of the center as you compare the best rehab centers and make a choice. For example, you might want to consider the following questions:

  • Does the rehab program offer the level of care you need?
  • Is dual diagnosis treatment available for co-occurring disorders?
  • Does the treatment center include an on-site, medical detox?
  • Do you need specialized care and, if so, is that available?
  • Does the treatment center have experience with your particular addiction?
  • How long does treatment last?

What Questions Should You Ask When Considering a Treatment Program?

As well as thinking about your personal needs and preferences for treatment, you always want to ensure that you choose a rehab center that’s well-qualified and provides top-level care and treatment. Some of the questions to ask rehab centers as you compare them include:

How do you approach treatment?

There are a lot of different types of rehab programs available. For example, there are religious programs, 12-step programs and holistic treatment. The foundation of any of those programs needs to be evidence-based and aligned with current science and medicine views of addiction as a treatable, chronic disorder. Evidence-based rehab will use current research as a basis for individualized treatment programs.

Is treatment individualized?

The intake assessment is such an important part of addiction treatment because it’s how a team of professionals creates an individualized and specialized plan for treatment. Everyone is unique and their history of mental and physical health, and of their substance abuse are all different. A quality treatment center will integrate these differences into each person’s treatment plan.

Do you accept insurance and can you work with my provider?

Unfortunately, many people will think they can’t go to rehab because it’s too expensive. First, most treatment centers, including The Recovery Village, do accept private insurance. The Recovery Village will also work with your insurance company on your behalf to find out what’s covered under your plan. If you don’t have insurance, there are still ways you can get treatment. When you contact rehab centers, speak with them about payment plans and financing options.

What’s included in treatment?

As you contact rehab centers, ask what’s included in treatment. For example, is the nutrition part of treatment? What about holistic care? What’s not included in the cost of treatment and what can be added to a program?
