recovery centers in Delray Beach FL

Drug and alcohol addiction can ruin a life. Addiction recovery centers can be the solution you need to overcome your addiction. In this article, you’ll learn what a recovery center can address, the benefits it can offer, and much more. 

What is Substance Abuse Treatment at a Recovery Center?

If you have a drug or alcohol addiction, the first place to start is by receiving help from a rehab center. Drug rehab centers have addiction specialists and medical professionals specifically trained to provide a variety of evidence-based therapies to help you overcome your addiction.

When you have a drug or alcohol addiction, it is considered a chronic disease. Treatment is needed to live a healthy, happy life that is sober. It’s one thing to stop using drugs or alcohol for a few days, weeks, or months; it’s a very different thing to stop using drugs and alcohol forever. In many ways, individuals have to restructure their lives. The reward of doing this is living a wonderful life, but getting started and maintaining this level of change can be difficult on your own. 

That’s where substance abuse treatment can help. When you join the right drug rehab center for your specific needs, you’re setting yourself up for the highest level of success. You’ll participate in a variety of individual therapies, group therapies, and holistic therapies, and address any underlying conditions or self-harming behaviors so that you can further understand your reasons for addiction. You’ll also learn specific tools and things you can do to deal with life in a healthy, constructive way. 

What are the Benefits of Receiving Addiction Treatment?

The benefits of receiving treatment for your addiction are endless. They include (but are not limited to):

  • Helping you to understand your motivations for using
  • Identifying your triggers for using
  • Providing you with effective coping strategies throughout your life
  • Addressing the underlying cause for your drug or alcohol use
  • Helping you develop a deeper sense of self-compassion
  • Addressing any co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, PTSD, depression, and others
  • Improving your mental health and physical health
  • Strengthening healthy relationships in your life

Do I Need Addiction Treatment?

Deciding if you need addiction treatment can be challenging. This is especially true if your friends and family consume drugs and alcohol. When your community participates in these activities, it can be difficult to know if your behavior is a problem in your life. 

It’s important to know that addiction ranges from mild to severe, all of which are considered unhealthy and harmful. The following is a general list of some common behaviors associated with addiction:

  • Lack of control
  • Desire to quit using, but being unable to fully stop
  • Spending a consistent amount of time thinking about using and/or trying to get drugs and/or alcohol
  • Experiencing cravings 
  • Avoiding daily responsibilities
  • Problems with your relationships (friends and family)
  • Loss of interest in activities you used to enjoy
  • Withdrawal symptoms when not using, even for a short period of time
  • Developing a higher tolerance over time

The above list are just a few of the behavioral symptoms that can accompany addiction. If you experience any of these symptoms, you might have a drug addiction. Contacting a professional treatment center can help to thoroughly assess your situation and find the right treatment program for your needs.

How Do I Know if a Treatment Center Can Help With My Specific Drug Addiction?

Some treatment centers can address a wide variety of drug addictions, while others are more limited in their scope of treatment. At Harmony Outpatient, our addiction specialists are experts in treating most drug addictions. This can range from alcohol to fentanyl, cocaine, heroin, ketamine, marijuana, meth, PCP, opioids, and so much more.

If you have specific questions about treatment for your addiction, the best thing to do is contact us. Our staff will be able to provide you with the answers you need. 

Which Type of Treatment Do I Need?

There are several treatment programs we offer at Harmony Outpatient. They range from a general Outpatient Program to an Intensive Outpatient Program, Partial Hospitalization Program, and Medication-Assisted Detox treatment. 

Each of our rehab treatment programs includes evidence-based therapies and holistic therapies to help you overcome your addiction and maintain sobriety throughout your life. They each also enable you to live at home (rather than living at the facility which is known as residential treatment), while you attend therapies during the day. The primary difference between them is the number of days per week and hours per day you’ll be expected to participate in treatment. 

The exact treatment program you participate in will be determined by your Harmony Outpatient addiction specialist. Almost all clients will begin their treatment with medication-assisted detox. You might even participate in a combination of treatment programs depending on your specific addiction and overall health (including both physical health and mental health).
