Do you feel in an environment that is driven by addiction? Perhaps the friends that you hang out with are all struggling with their own addiction. Maybe you have close family members that don’t understand that addiction is a disease. As a result, they can’t get through the fact that you aren’t able to simply stop taking your drug or drink of choice. If you find yourself in this situation, you may find it impossible to be able to truly establish let alone maintain your sobriety. However, when you change the circumstances around you, you give yourself the opportunity to work through the contributing factors in your addiction that may be holding you back from accomplishing true sobriety. 

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call The Source today.  Our treatment specialists are available 24/7 to discuss your options and help you find the perfect solution (800) 204-0418.

What Does Alcohol Rehab Consist Of? 

One of the popular questions that our treatment team receives revolves around what they can expect during their time in alcohol rehab. Your experience will be unique and specific to your needs. With that in mind, there are several decisions that you will need to make when it comes to your treatment. At The Source, we offer three distinct treatment options: 

Partial hospitalization program 

In a partial hospitalization program, you will be able to live in one of our beautiful and luxurious single-family residences. Not only will this allow you to have around-the-clock access to our treatment team but you will also have the benefit of being close to the incredible Fort Lauderdale beach as well as 12 step meetings that are in the area. You will have all the amenities that you need to truly make the most out of your time in treatment. 

 

Intensive outpatient program 

An intensive outpatient program is a step down from a partial hospitalization program. There are also many clients that decide to commit to an intensive outpatient program right away. An intensive outpatient program requires that you spend a minimum of nine hours in therapeutic treatment per week which makes it more flexible than a partial hospitalization program which means that you would still be able to work or go to school during this time. 

General outpatient program 

A general outpatient program is the most flexible treatment plan that we offer at The Source. You will need to complete a minimum of three hours of group therapy per week and an hour of individual therapy. If you work or go to school full time, this may be the best option for you. 

First, Alcohol Detox – Then Rehab 

The first step for many people that are ready to tackle their addiction to alcohol is detox. If your addiction to alcohol is severe enough, within just a couple of hours from the time that you take your last drink, you will begin to experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can vary, however, they typically can include nausea, shakiness, cravings, increased anxiety, and come with the increased possibility of experiencing a seizure. A combination of any of these symptoms could result in serious physical and psychological consequences and even death in some cases. It’s never advised that you attempt to go through the detox process alone because of these possibilities. 

At The Source, we have partnered with several detox facilities around the country so that you can get the immediate care that you need regardless of your location. If you’re an Austin resident, we will work quickly to find a detox facility that is close to your home so that you’re never put in a position where you’re in a possibly dangerous situation. It’s imperative that you provide our intake team with the information regarding the extent of your addiction so that we can set you up with the right level of care immediately. 

Getting to the Root of Alcohol Addiction 

The root cause of addiction is different for almost every person. In most cases, however, the root cause of addiction is typically the experience of some form of trauma. There are some people that experience this trauma early in life while there are several more who experience it well into their adult years. Regardless of when you experience it, if you don’t address it properly, you may turn to addiction as a way to cope. Part of your recovery process will be to identify the root cause of your addiction and learn what steps you can take to overcome it and recover from it. 

Overcoming Addiction with Therapy 

It’s not enough just to identify the root cause of your addiction, your next step is to work on overcoming it, preventing possible relapses in the future. This is something that is done through continued therapy during your time in treatment.  There are several different forms of therapy that you will experience during your time at The Source such as: 

  • Individual therapy 
  • Group therapy 
  • Behavioral therapy 
  • Trauma-based therapies 

Another helpful form of therapy that you will participate in is family therapy. If your relationships with your loved ones have been negatively impacted by addiction, family therapy can give you the chance to begin to rebuild these connections. Family therapy will take place in a neutral environment so that everyone in attendance feels comfortable and at ease. By the end of your therapy session, you may come to find that you are in a much better place with your loved ones and feel more driven to continue on in your recovery journey.
