Drug addiction is a complex brain and body disease that requires treatment of the mind, body, and spirit. For example, drugs change the brain and its structure and function. Without treatment, these brain changes can be long-lasting. In this way, addiction is chronic, progressive disease. As such, individuals struggling with substance abuse often feel lost without them.
Addiction is characterized by an inability to stop using. Additionally, impairment in behavioral control, craving, and recognition of severe problems. Similar to other chronic diseases, addiction often involves times of relapse and remission. Consequently, without Florida drug rehab or medical help, addiction often results in disability or death.
Also, addiction sets up a pattern of substance abuse and dependence that destroys lives. Not just yours, but also all those that care about you. At the same time, repeated use of substances that change the chemical balance of the brain is dangerous. Finally, when the drug is removed, the brain struggles to regain balance and withdrawal is experienced. Also, cravings for the drug are heightened. Lastly, the confusing denial that so often accompanies addictions makes the addict think that they "don’t have a problem."
Once a person has completed a detox program and graduated from an inpatient program at a Florida drug rehab center, they transition into maintaining their recovery through 12-step support groups and aftercare programs. Aftercare is an essential part of the Florida treatment model for several reasons. However, what sticks out the most is that many relapse because they try to take shortcuts. Or, the program that wasn’t long enough for their specific needs.
In other words, individuals are at a higher risk of relapse when they complete only short programs or low-level addiction programs. As such, the Florida treatment model begins with a high degree of detox and inpatient programs before clients shift into aftercare programs. This allows them to continue to receive substance abuse treatment and build 12-step support. Essentially, aftercare program allows client to learn how to stay sober in society. Thus, why the Florida model of treatment stresses aftercare addiction programs.
South Florida has an all-embracing, active recovery community because of the large number of drug rehabs and individuals who come to Florida for addiction treatment. It’s also commonplace for clients to remain in the state after completing drug rehab. They often find themselves part of a strong group of peers and abundant recovery resources. There are literally hundreds of daily 12-step meetings which is vital to continued sobriety.
