What Is Drug Addiction?
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 addiction makes the addict think that they "don’t have a problem."
Drug Addictions Treated by Florida Drug Rehab
Addiction can cause your life to spin out of control. It can overwhelm your thoughts and become an above all other aspect of your life. Even though you may want to stop using, it's easy to guilt yourself for the addiction. In fact, you should always remind yourself that addiction is a disease, and like any medical illness, it is difficult to overcome without professional help and support. Furthermore, it is possible to develop an addiction to almost any substance, but taking specific drugs puts you at a higher risk. Our Florida drug rehab treats all drug addictions including:

Florida Drug Rehab Aftercare is Essential
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.

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.
