Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in West Palm Beach

West Palm Beach Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Substance abuse is an issue that is plaguing the entire country. The state of Florida and the city of West Palm Beach specifically are not immune to this. Not only are illegal drugs like heroin and cocaine a real problem, but prescription medications, alcohol and other drugs that can be obtained legally are also doing a lot of damage. Addiction can destroy your life, your career and your relationships.

According to the Substance Awareness Coalition, an opiate epidemic has been spreading over Palm Beach County causing rising numbers of primary treatment admissions, drug-related deaths and crime lab cases. This is partially because from the years 2000 to 2010, there was a dramatic increase in the availability of heroin and other opioids.

Although substance use disorder can be so destructive, there is still hope for those who are plagued with this disease. Despite the common misconceptions, addiction is a disease, similar to diabetes or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. There seems to be a popular train of thought among those who do not struggle with addiction that those who do are simply making bad choices. However, we understand that the disease of addiction can be treated.

If you are seeking drug addiction treatment in West Palm Beach, there are many options available to you. You may also want to look for rehab options outside of Florida.

Finding Drug and Alcohol Rehab in West Palm Beach, Florida

West Palm Beach, Florida Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehab Centers

There are many choices available for those who are seeking alcohol and drug treatment facilities in West Palm Beach, Florida. Within these facilities, there are different levels of treatment programs: residential, partial hospitalization and outpatient. Understanding a little more about these treatment programs can help you to decide which one is right for you.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    A residential treatment program is also known as an inpatient treatment program. In this treatment program, patients are given access to medical care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and they will stay in the facility. Patients who need to go through detox will typically begin this program after any detox.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    A PHP is a little more flexible. It offers patients access to medical care and the same rehabilitation activities that patients in the residential program receive, but they are able to go home at night.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    The most flexible option, patients in the outpatient program have typically already completed inpatient programs or PHPs. If they begin an outpatient treatment program, they will typically have a less serious addiction.

With all of the options available, it may be worth it to consider seeking treatment outside of West Palm Beach, Florida. One of the benefits of using a national treatment center like The Recovery Village is that you are given a chance to get away from your everyday environment and give yourself to space to truly heal and recover.

Detox Centers

There are many beneficial reasons to go to a detox center and several options for detox centers in West Palm Beach, Florida. If you are addicted to certain substances (like alcohol, benzodiazepines or opiates), you may need to go through a detoxification to get all of the substance out of your system. Without medical supervision during this process, the temptation to relapse may become too overwhelming, especially when withdrawal symptoms are strong. In a detox center, you have medical care to help you through this process.

The downside of a detox center, however, is that most detox centers do not offer treatment programs as well. It is better to find a facility that allows you to detox and then go into a treatment program. It’s important to remember that detoxing is only the first step in a long recovery journey. Treatment programs — whether they are inpatient, outpatient or a partial hospitalization — are where the real work begins.

Recovery Meetings Near You

After detox and a treatment program, the work of recovery isn’t over. Finding a recovery program that resonates with you is important.
