Starting a new life without a dependence on drugs and alcohol is a big challenge, but it’s not impossible. Fortunately, anyone who is serious about wanting to get over their dependence, both physically and psychologically, can do it. Overcoming these problems cold turkey is never easy, can even be dangerous and even life-threatening. But there is a healthy alternative: Principles Recovery Center, Florida-licensed inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center located in Davies.
At Principles Recovery Center, we offer both a program and an environment where patients can receive treatment in a safe environment where they can focus and receive every benefit of our time-proven program: physically, emotionally, and psychologically. These benefits include:
Prime among the benefits of an inpatient treatment program is safety. As difficult as drug and alcohol treatment is, an inpatient approach is the most effective since it offers the participants a chance to be free of the daily stresses and temptations of life and concentrate on recovery. Further, eliminating substances nearly always causes withdrawal symptoms that often include the following:
* Panic and anxiety
* Nausea and vomiting
* Hallucinations and delusions
* Muscle aches
The length of time that withdrawal symptoms, as well as their severity, is usually associated with what substances a patient has abused. With a recovery program that is based on an inpatient treatment approach, patients receive a complete set of support services, including medical supervision that can help patients deal with problems as they occur, whether they are directly related to the substance abuse issues. With medical solutions so close at hand, patients are better able to reach for a proven alternative that will help, rather than hinder their recovery.
Safety and Support
Perhaps the most important benefit of a residential treatment program to deal with drug and alcohol abuse is with a supportive and safe environment, which includes people who understand precisely what another patient is going through. This includes the treatment professionals as well as peers who are struggling to deal with the same problems that they are. Treatment professionals who are educated and experienced in providing their recovery services to patients, as well as peers who also provide support, are the complete set of tools that patients can use to overcome their dependence.
A huge part of drug and alcohol dependency comes from the environment of the person suffering from their effects. With a residential program of drug and alcohol recovery, patients are taken out of the environment that caused them to become addicted. Without these surroundings, patients are better able to find the support that will bring them to a better place for complete and total recovery from their addictions. Further, patients are removed from the other stresses of daily living, whether they contribute directly to addictive behavior or not. Even day-to-day requirements for living such as preparing meals for themselves and family are eliminated so that patients can deal in a focused manner on their rehab.
Another important benefit of an inpatient addiction treatment program is structure. With an inpatient treatment approach, people who are faced with their old choices are removed from the day-to-day stresses, which include being unable to contact or be contacted by drug dealers and other negative acquaintances who are able to influence a patient’s life decisions.
Focus for the Long Run
Hope. Perhaps greater than any other influence for patients is the opportunity for hope in the lives of those affected. An inpatient program of drug and alcohol abuse gives patients the chance to hope and gives them a clear future to focus on and gives them the tools to reach those goals.
