While living your life as a victim of drug or alcohol addiction, you might feel the choices in life have been removed from your control. Sure, addiction has likely taken control of your life, leaving you at the mercy of your substance(s) of choice. What you are really experiencing is a problem with perception. In fact, there is one very important decision you could choose to make at any time. That decision would be whether or not to stop abusing drugs and get help.
Most of the time, people who successfully arrest their addiction and maintain a long-term recovery are the ones who sought treatment pretty much on their own. The act of coming to grips with addiction and the willingness to ask for help tends to help people commit to treatment. If you can do that, you will have a real chance of getting back to living a normal life without having to battle an addiction.
Once you make that decision, it will become easier to make the next important decision, where to get treatment. Understandably, your first instinct will be to contact a drug and addiction center in your local community. Caution is warranted. That’s not always the best choice.
Home may be where the heart is, but it’s also where your addiction took root. Your neighborhood is filled with the people, places, and things that drove you to seek refuge in substance abuse. If money is a serious issue, perhaps a local treatment facility is the only logical choice. Otherwise, we recommend you give serious consideration to the option of getting help in Florida.
How Do You Know What Drug Treatment Center in Florida Is Right for You?
If you are surprised that someone would recommend you relocate to Florida for treatment, don’t be. As one of the top addiction treatment centers in the state, we have a vested interest in informing you that Florida has a reputation as the “addiction treatment capital of the world.” Let that sink in. Millions of people from all over the world have gotten treatment from a top facility in Florida, especially South Florida.
We care about your situation, and we most definitely care about helping you get into treatment. If you are concerned about choosing the addiction treatment center in Florida that is best for you, we might be able to help you.
Here are four things you’ll want to consider:
- Does the facility offer in-house detox or refer out?
- Does the treatment facility employ top professional addiction treatment personnel?
- Are there treatment options that give you a sense of security?
- What amenities are in the offering?
In-House or Outsourced Detox
Some clients prefer to go through the detox process in a full-service addiction treatment center. It could be a matter of convenience or a preference for continuity of treatment. Other clients are more than willing to go through a detox program with a facility that specializes in providing said services. Neither choice is the wrong choice as long as you are comfortable the choice you make.
Level of Professionalism of Personnel
Many of the top rehab centers in Florida have no trouble attracting the top treatment professionals from within the addiction treatment community. With that said, you’ll likely be satisfied with the level of care you receive no matter where you receive it in Florida. However, it’s possible you might be swayed by the gender mix of counselors, areas of training and the reputation of some individuals.
The Treatment Options
Some Florida facilities focus on standard treatment programs while other facilities might focus on evidence-based modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. A facility that uses a holistic approach to treatment might also warrant consideration. It’s up to you to do a little research and figure out what treatment options will best meet your needs and expectations.
The amenities an addiction treatment has to offer are important. If you going to reside in an inpatient facility, you won’t be spending all day in therapy. If a facility offers amenities like access to water sports, horseback riding or access to luxury living, you can decide what’s important to you.
