Sebring, Florida is nicknamed “the city of the circle” due to the historic design of the city center. Ironically, Sebring is host to the 12 hours of Sebring which is an annual sports car championship. Sebring is home to the international raceway, U.S. Sport Aviation Expo while neighboring the beautiful Highland Hammock State Park.

Yet, Sebring isn’t all racing fun and outdoor endeavors. In 2013, two Deputy Marshals were shot while serving an arrest warrant for six Sebring residents suspected of supplying Highlands County with thousands of kilograms of cocaine and significant amount of crack cocaine.

In 2017, a couple was arrested for transporting oxycodone and heroin from Fort Lauderdale to sell in Sebring. In the same month, another Highlands County woman was found trespassing in an orange grove while being in possession of methamphetamine, two syringes and stolen credit cards. The woman was charged with 49 crimes-many of which were drug related. A few months ago, police conducted a routine traffic stop that discovered 246 grams of methamphetamine which has a street worth $15,000.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    These treatment programs are also referred to as inpatient or retreat-based recovery clinics. Inpatient programs are the safest and most successful method of recovery. However, retreat-based facilities are the most restrictive. Patients will be required to live within the facility until the program has been completed. Drug court may often sentence an offender to inpatient treatment instead of prison if the individual is willing to get better.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    The PHP breaks up the residency of the patient. The individual will live on-site while detoxifying, so a team of medical professionals can monitor your health during this vulnerable period. The patient will return home once their body is clean of toxins and will be required to commute for all mandatory therapies.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient treatment programs are the most flexible recovery treatments. Patients will live at home while participating in similar treatments found in retreat-based or partial hospitalization programs which employ individual and group cognitive behavioral therapies. Outpatient treatments do not give patients any safety from destructive and enabling people or environments. Outpatient treatment programs are the most difficult methods for achieving long-term sobriety.

National recovery facilities offer innovative treatments from addiction experts who have built an environment and retreat-based therapy that is suitable for this transformation. The Recovery Village is an award winning, retreat-based clinic that prioritizes the patient’s mental, physical and spiritual health with respect to their privacy and unique needs.

Detox Centers

Sebring is home to a handful of detoxification facilities. Attempting to select an appropriate choice for your specific circumstances can be overwhelming. There are a few factors to consider before making a decision regarding your recovery and a detox center.

Admitting you have a problem with drugs or alcohol is a giant step forward. Detoxification is a massive achievement. This milestone is only the beginning of the recuperating process. Avoid any service that only addresses addiction as a physical illness. Alcohol and substance misuse certainly has a physical component, particularly for: prescription opioid, heroin, stimulants and alcohol. These dependencies have deeper roots within the patient’s psychological behaviors and spiritual wounds that must be attended to.

A quality establishment will approach the disease of addiction from multiple vantage points and via several differing techniques to reinforce the individual’s sobriety. The local resources in Sebring may not have access to the evolving science surrounding addiction and substance misuse. National facilities provide cutting edge research that’s updated and applied more frequently than smaller clinics. The strength of sobriety is hinged upon a commitment to health, the tools accessible and the time and space allowed for the transformation.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Surprisingly, the majority of the patient’s recuperation will be completed post detoxification, inpatient, partial hospitalization or outpatient treatment. Most people with long-term sobriety rely on aftercare to see them through life’s triumphs and failures. Aftercare is elemental to well-being. The methods developed in aftercare meetings have helped people all over the world gain sobriety.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship that embraces sobriety as a lifestyle. Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are always private, free and open to everyone struggling with alcoholism and unaffiliated with any specific religion. AA meetings do ask their participants to submit to a higher power, but that is the extent of Alcoholics Anonymous involvement in religion. Members follow the 12 steps or traditions that guide them through the long-term challenge of staying clean. If you recently completed alcohol treatment, Sebring offers AA meetings at various locations that you can take part in.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Narcotics Anonymous meetings are a brother, non-profit organization which follows the same twelve steps as Alcoholics Anonymous, the secular attitude and the same mission but to help people with drug dependency problems. Experts determined patients who attune to a complete therapeutic rotation are much less likely to relapse than those who only participate in detox programs. The most successful way to sobriety is found in a diverse approach comprised of several aspects like medically observed detox processes, protecting the patient from stress-inducing and drug-enabling circumstances while skill building is conquered through individual and group therapy sessions, followed by a long-term commitment to an aftercare community. Regardless of where you received treatment, Sebring’s NA meetings can give you the accountability and support you need to stay on the right path.

Addiction and alcoholism are complex conditions that have consequences for everyone in the patient’s life. The loved ones of an addict are hurt by the individual’s destructive habits. The United States spends millions of dollars coping with backlash of the drug epidemic. Neighborhoods suffer when drug traffickers move into the area. Their property values decrease, their safety is at risk and children cannot congregate on their home streets. If you’re struggling to understand how your loved one’s chronic condition can harm your emotional well-being then Al-Anon or Nar-Anon meetings are appropriate for you. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon meetings offer a reservoir of support.

Beginning this journey gives the individual many aspects to consider and as these deliberations move forward the resolve to follow through with treatment may waiver. All that’s needed is the courage to step forward and admit you’ve lost control of this substance.

Consider putting the job, the relationships, the stresses, the enablers, all of it on hold. Allow for a pause just long enough to heal. People who contract diseases like cancer take the time and space necessary to better their health. There’s no question about a course of action when a patient has cancer, they do what they have to beat cancer or they die. It’s the same situation for addiction. A retreat-based therapy at the national level offers the most modern and efficient treatments.
