Opiate addiction is one of the most -if not the most- difficult addiction to overcome. Opiate addiction was the addiction that disseminated the truth that addiction does not discriminate because it has devastated the lives of many people and families. If you are struggling with an opiate addiction, you are not alone in your suffering. Though there is no medicinal cure for addiction, recovery is possible through a combination of physiological and psychological treatments.
The most common and effective method to treating addiction is inpatient rehab. Contrary to the myths that you may have heard from other addicted individuals and/or the media, rehab is not a cold, sterile hospital environment where you are forced to go through monotonous talk therapy and Twelve Step Meetings. That traditional method may have been used forty years ago, but most modern rehab centers use the Florida Model of addiction treatment, which consists of living in an apartment-like environment, traveling on a campus-like complex for treatment, and doing a variety of fun and interesting activities to heal yourself. If you are attending a rehab in Boynton Beach, you will definitely be going to a rehab center that utilizes the Florida model.
Treatment Methods a Boynton Beach Florida Rehab Will Use
Addiction is a physiological disease because the body’s new homeostasis becomes having the drugs in its system. When the body does not receive the drugs, it starts to react. You will start to feel withdrawal symptoms as your body is reacting to the absence of the drug and trying to get back to its pre-addiction homeostasis. Detox is the process of getting you through the withdrawal symptoms in a safe, comfortable manner.
You will be assigned an individual counselor to work through the underlying psychological issues of your addiction (e.g. childhood trauma, low self-esteem, stress,etc.). Your counselor will help you gain a new perspective, correct any errors in cognition, and develop new coping skills. Some of the healing will be done through talk therapy, and other parts of the healing will be made the focus of other forms of therapy.
Successful recovery is about collaboration, which is how the Twelve Step Meetings originated. Group therapy will teach you how to heal yourself and solve your personal problems through connecting with others who can empathize. Some group therapy sessions may be Twelve Step Meetings like the ones that you would attend outside the center, and other group therapy sessions will simply be group talk on a topic chosen by the counselor.
Addiction is a family disease because it affects the entire family unit physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. Successful recovery is contingent on your family healing along with you.
Half of the therapy that you will experience at a Boynton Beach rehab will be experiential. Experiential is a group of therapies that involve doing and experiencing, as opposed to traditional talk therapy (e.g. art, music, drama, sports, yoga, horseback riding, nature, etc.).
