Every day, there are countless people that suffer from the strain of addiction. Although they want to overcome this addiction, they find it difficult to do so because of the environment that they are in. They may live with a person that is suffering from their own addiction or they may live near a location where they purchased drugs or alcohol. Regardless of the circumstances, the only way that they are able to truly overcome their addiction is through changing the environment around them for a period of time through a partial hospitalization program.
The Source Treatment Center offers Portsmouth residents the opportunity to do just that by coming to our Fort Lauderdale facility. When you come to The Source, we will provide you with a home away from home atmosphere where you will be able to take the time that you need to truly overcome your addiction.
What Does Alcohol Rehab Consist Of?
If you have never been through an alcohol rehab program before, then you may have some questions regarding what may take place during treatment. The reality is that you will likely have a lot of new and eye-opening experiences that can impact the rest of your life. The bulk of your time in alcohol rehab will be spent in therapy. The reason for this is that therapy is the most efficient way to identify and address the root cause of your addiction. It’s important to put a finger on the event or events in your life that may have triggered your addiction because only then will you be able to heal from them.
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.
During a partial hospitalization program, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy the luxurious accommodations that our single-family residences have to offer. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with a home away from home type of environment so that they can feel at ease throughout the course of their treatment. You will also have around-the-clock access to your treatment team. This is particularly helpful if you find yourself struggling with a certain aspect of your recovery. Whether this struggle happens at three o’clock in the afternoon or three o’clock in the morning, you can take comfort in the fact someone will be there for you and with you when you need them the most.
First Alcohol Detox – Then Rehab
If your addiction is severe enough, it would be impossible for you to simply stop consuming alcohol. Your body has now become accustomed to it and, as a result, it will begin to crave it after a certain amount of time. If you do not consume it, then you will begin to experience certain physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms such as:
- Increased anxiety
- Stomach issues
- Possible seizures
Withdrawal symptoms will make it all but impossible for you to care for yourself during this stretch of time. Although you will experience the worst of your withdrawal symptoms within the first 72 hours from the time that you last consumed alcohol, a combination of these symptoms could be potentially deadly unless you are under the care of trained medical professionals.
In order to get our clients the urgent and immediate care that they need before detox truly sets in, Our Portsmouth addiction center has partnered with numerous detox facilities throughout the country. When you reach out to us, we will begin working immediately to locate the closest detox facility to you and help you to make plans to get there quickly. In most cases, you will need to spend approximately seven days in detox.
The reason why it’s critical that you go through detox before you attempt to go rehab is that you will not be able to focus on the valuable lessons that you need to learn in rehab if you are still struggling with the fallout of withdrawal symptoms. Once you get toward the end of your time in detox, you will be in a better frame of mind to be able to focus on future treatment plans.
Getting to the Root of Alcohol Addiction
The story behind every person that comes to The Source is different and unique. However, every client has one thing in common. They are all struggling with an addiction that was triggered by an event or series of events in their life that left a permanent mark on them. Understanding the root cause of your addiction and this trauma will help you to work through the emotions that you may be feeling associated with that event. Not only will you be able to begin to heal from it, but you will know what steps that you need to take to avoid any triggers going forward which is key when it comes to relapse prevention.
Overcoming Addiction With Therapy
There are several different types of therapy that you will experience when you decide to come to our Fort Lauderdale facility. One of the main focuses of any treatment plan will be to participate in trauma-based therapy. There are several forms of trauma-based therapy which include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), traumatic incident reduction therapy (TIR), and rapid resolution therapy (RRT). As you begin to work through your plan, we will collaborate with you to determine which option is best for you depending on your circumstances.
We also provide our clients with the opportunity to take advantage of more traditional forms of addiction therapy include:
- Behavioral therapy
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
You will find that a healthy combination of all of these forms of counseling will provide you with the best opportunity to work through your struggles with addiction.
