Substance Abuse Treatment in Florida at Miracles Recovery Center
Miracles Recovery Center is a miracle in itself and it can help you work miracles for yourself. It was founded by an individual who experienced the struggle of substance abuse and made it through to recovery. And his struggle gave him the drive to provide outstanding treatment and care to other people suffering from addiction.
When you think of drug rehab, you probably imagine an inpatient treatment program. However, outpatient treatment centers can also provide the levels and intensity of care you need to recover.
At our treatment programs in Florida, we treat the whole person. Our treatment specialists have worked with many individuals suffering from addiction and we can help you as well!
Miracles Recovery Center is located just north of West Palm Beach, Florida in Port St. Lucie. Our serene surroundings make our addiction treatment center a place people can heal, and overcome addiction and substance use.
The levels of care we offer include:
Common Types of Addiction We Treat
At our substance abuse treatment center in Port St. Lucie, FL, the common types of addiction that we treat include the following:
Alcohol is considered to be one of the most widely used substances in the United States. Our alcoholism treatment program is the most effective step one can take on their healing and recovery addiction journey. The treatment will consist of numerous services aimed at addressing the physical and mental aspects of alcohol addiction.
Any program that focuses on helping someone overcome alcohol addiction must be focused on helping them learn valuable relapse prevention techniques like managing triggers. Addiction treatment facilities will focus on training individuals on how to maintain sobriety and resist temptation after leaving drug rehab.
Treatment for heroin will usually start with detox as withdrawal symptoms often have many negative effects that need to be addressed first. Once someone can safely break free of physical addiction to heroin they can begin professional treatment at a rehab center.
In many cases, residential care is recommended for heroin addiction, but that is not necessarily always the case. Many Florida drug rehabs offer excellent outpatient care that can help individuals overcome this form of serious substance abuse. Their tailored treatment plan address all must causes related to heroin addiction to be effective.
Prescription Substance Abuse
Prescription drugs are commonly abused as individuals get prescribed medications but find themselves eventually physically dependent on the medication. Common prescription drug abuse includes opioids (pain medication), benzodiazepines, stimulants (Adderall), and depressants (sleeping pills).
For treatment centers to accurately address prescription substance abuse, they must review the individual’s drug use history. They must also take into consideration if the person was mixing medications, or even including alcohol abuse. Prescribed medications may also be an indication that someone is suffering from mental health issues and therefore mental health services may be necessary for treatment.
It might seem like a harmless pill that has the ability to ease insomnia and anxiety, but it’s certainly not as innocent as it seems. Many individuals abuse this drug and become addicted to it. Our experienced counseling and substance abuse treatment can assist you in your long-term journey.
There have been studies that have discovered that cocaine is second to Heroin in the ranking of the most addictive drugs. Our mission is to help individuals struggling with cocaine addiction. We have access to effective treatment utilized to break the dangerous cycle of drug addiction and attain long-term sobriety.
Our Substance Abuse Treatment Programs in Florida
At Miracles Recovery Outpatient Centers we offer a variety of addiction treatment programs that allow individuals to recover from alcohol and drug addiction while being able to return home in the evenings. Our treatment services help individuals overcome mild addiction to more serious cases of co-occurring disorders.
All individuals receive customized treatment plans that specifically address their underlying issues related to substance abuse and mental health issues. At our rehab in Florida, all treatment options are reviewed by a clinical professional to be sure our patients receive treatment that targets their specific needs.
Before beginning a treatment program, the first step when an individual has an alcohol addiction is called detoxification. This is where a person undergoes a process, where the body is rid of the toxic substances in a safe, and professional setting, under medical supervision. This coordinated care allows individuals to have community support and access to treatment for their unique needs. The medical provider, will be present in case of extremely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms present themselves, which commonly occurs.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
In our PHP, you will be focused on treating your substance use disorder (SUD) with the goal of long-term recovery. You will attend treatment sessions five full days a week in our secure facility and have the opportunity to return home in the evening. During these days, you will be free of any distractions and triggers that might stall your recovery.
The time is structured with therapies and activities chosen for you and by you to make the most of your time in treatment. While in the program, you will learn to recognize your addiction triggers, methods to help you cope in those situations, and techniques to avoid relapse.
Plus you will be made aware of any co-existing conditions you may have and receive the appropriate treatment.
PHPs are best for people who:
- Have severe episodes of addiction or overdose
- Are more likely to relapse
- Are still experiencing withdrawal symptoms
- Aren’t at risk for harming themselves or others
- Are medically stable
- Have sufficient support at home
- Are motivated to take part in the treatment
- Are experiencing co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
IOPs have been a way to treat addiction for a long time when longer stays at a residential treatment center weren’t necessary or possible. They have also proved to be a successful part of a continuing care program because they can serve as a step down from the partial hospitalization program.
These programs are designed to provide psychological, behavioral, and social support therapies to people while they continue to live at home. This makes it possible to continue participation in work and educational activities and still attend the treatment facility in the morning or at the end of the day. Intensive outpatient programs are an important part of the levels of care for a person with alcohol or drug abuse problems. They have been judged to be as effective as an inpatient rehab center for most people.
An IOP is a good choice for people who:
- Do not need or have completed detox
- Aren’t a danger to themselves or others
- Have caring, supportive friends and family
- Want to continue participating in work, school, or other obligations while in treatment
Outpatient Program (OP)
If you decide on outpatient treatment you will live at home and commute to the facility for drug and alcohol treatment. You will attend sessions a few days a week for about 3 hours each.
At Miracles, you can schedule your counseling sessions for days or evenings – whatever is most convenient for you. An outpatient program can be used as a further continuation of treatment after completing a PHP or IOP. Studies show that the longer a person continues in some type of treatment, the better their chances of long-term sobriety.
Outpatient rehab is best for people who have:
- Mild to moderate substance use
- Strong support from family and friends
- Transportation to and from the treatment center
- Motivation to attend sessions regularly and stick to a treatment
- Low risk of a medically complicated withdrawal
OP might not be the best choice for people who have severe alcohol or drug addiction or co-occurring mental health disorders. Likewise, those with a poor support system or a history of relapse are less likely to benefit from an outpatient program.
Dual Diagnosis is the treatment of two diseases. For example, if an individual is diagnosed with a mental health disorder and a drug use disorder. Mental health disorders can be anxiety disorders, bipolar disorders, or depressive disorders.
Our dual diagnosis treatment modality will include the following:
- Psychiatric assessment
- Medical detoxification
- Evaluation and Management of Medication
- Nutrition consultations
- Group Therapy
- Recreational Therapy
- 12-Step Program
- Community-Based Service Links
Creating Your Miracle at Our Addiction Treatment Facility
If your goal is to recover, there is more to it than stopping your substance abuse. Drug and alcohol addiction is more than your physical dependence. Even after going through withdrawal and ridding your body of its physical dependence, you are still at high risk for a relapse. This is when you dig deep and find out why you started using drugs or alcohol, why you got addicted, and how to keep you from going back.
At Miracles, you will work with trained, experienced, specialists who will coach you and educate you about your disorder and how to overcome it. This is where the real work starts. The miracle happens at our treatment centers.
We have several therapy processes you will use to gain a better understanding of yourself, your family, and any underlying reasons that caused you to abuse drugs or alcohol in the first place. You may have a co-occurring disorder that you have never addressed. Individuals who abuse substances are frequently suffering from depression, trauma, and anxiety.
Miracles Recovery Center offers the following therapies:
Group counseling is usually preferred over individual therapy, although they both have a part to play in recovery. In group sessions, there will typically be one or more therapists and 5 to 15 group members. During a group counseling session, you are likely to be challenged and, at the same time, supported by your fellow group members.
Also, being in a group setting helps you put your substance abuse and mental health problems into perspective. You’ll find that listening to others regularly helps you open up about your issues and realize that you aren’t the only person with problems. By observing how other people handle their problems and make changes, you learn new strategies for your problems.
Individual therapy is also called psychotherapy or “talk therapy.” It is a collaborative and confidential process between the patient and the therapist. Talking to a trained therapist can help you uncover the causes of your thoughts and behaviors and help you make positive life changes.
Psychotherapy can be a great benefit to you if you have depression, bipolar, or another serious mental health disorder that needs to be treated separately, but at the same time as the substance disorder. Most people find it’s helpful to participate in both group and individual therapy.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a talk therapy that looks into the differences between what you want to do and what you do. Addiction is an example of that–nobody wants to be an addict. This form of behavioral therapy is an effective goal-oriented and short-term treatment that takes a matter-of-fact approach to problem-solving.
It highlights the behavior and thought patterns (cognition) of the patient. Using this method, the patient begins to understand the connections between their negative thoughts and attitudes and their behavior.
The ultimate goal of CBT is to adjust the patterns of thinking or behavior that led to the person’s problems. This is accomplished by targeting your:
- Attitudes, and
By examining these, we can discover what caused you to behave in certain ways to deal with your emotional problems. Once you have identified the relationships between your problems, behavior, and thoughts, you can start to learn ways to cope and manage your thoughts and emotions. Research has shown that the effects of CBT continue after therapy sessions are complete.
Spirituality or Holistic Therapy
Frequently, people recovering from addictions name spirituality as a helpful influence. The theory of spirituality has been around for many years and has a variety of definitions. In ancient Greece, it was seen as therapy, a place where people went when they were in pain and distress to find relief.
And other people have described it as a basic drive for exceptional meaning and purpose that involves feeling connected to oneself, others, and ultimate reality. Still, another common explanation is that it is our breath, our life or essence, who we are.
Despite the lack of a clear definition and a lack of formal research, spirituality is an important predictor of recovery and signs of treatment outcome.
Effects of Spirituality
- Spirituality increases between a person’s entry into treatment and their resulting recovery
- Spirituality might be greater in people whose recovery is successful compared to people who have relapsed
- Commitment to a higher power might reduce the severity of relapses
- Addicts in recovery often report spirituality as an important part of their recovery and helped them maintain the changes they made during treatment.
Holistic therapy has spirituality as its basis. It focuses on the relationship between mind, body, and spirit while attempting to address the ways issues in one part of a person’s life can lead to concerns in others. It holds that a person’s consciousness is not in any one part of the person, but is a combination of the mind, body, and spirit. A detox can flush the toxins from your body. Therapy can help you recover emotionally. But there is more to a person than just body and mind. The spirit also needs treatment.
