Outpatient Treatments For Alcoholism

Nov 9th 2015 at 12:23 AM

Florida has been facing several cases of alcohol and drug addiction which has disturbed the peaceful environment of the society. To avoid this as much as possible, they have focused on providing rehabilitation facilities to as much people as they can, by opening up several treatment centers. Some of these work on dealing with only a single issue, for example, PTSD, eating disorders, relapse prevention, abandonment, physical, sexual and emotional abuse, depression and medication management, co-dependency, love addiction and family issues. Others work on all matters to make sure that the number of alcoholics and drug abusers in the society decreases.

What do the treatment centers offer:

Sober living in Boca Raton and other cities of Florida, follow an extensive treatment program based on the recent studies and researches on the subject. It includes:

1) Individualized treatment planning: Each patient has all his/her bio-data recorded so that each can be dealt differently, keeping in mind their specific issues. Since full attention is paid to each individual, it is easier for the abuser to quit his/her habits.

2) The treatment does not depend on crash course on twelve steps. Since this can be short or long process, depending on each patient’s severity and complexity of his/her situation, a proper and extensive therapy is given to all.

3) Dual diagnosis

4) All measures are taken to ensure that there is long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Majority that has been through rehab once, are able to remain sober for the rest of their lives.

Treatment requires support from others:

For some people, this treatment can be quite expensive. Also, the idea of leaving his/her job and family to go through treatment for a month or two is not really a good idea. Even most of those that join a treatment center need help from the outside world too. This makes the process easier for them. So what do the treatment centers suggest?

1) Friends and Family: Instead of abandoning their relative that is suffering from all this, friends and family should try to support him/her in their difficult time. They can help you with taking your medicines on time, divert your attention while you crave to go back to your previous habits, making you avoid it altogether and even cheer you when you feel hopeless about it.


2) Create a network of individuals who are like-minded:Those who are going through the same phase understand each other’s problems deeply and can talk each other out of this habit.
