Addiction treatment provided at agape treatment center
There are many forms of effective substance abuse treatment, the best program just depends on what level of care someone needs. Addiction is complex and impacts more than 20 million Americans, with only about 2.5 million individuals ever receiving treatment for their substance abuse problem.
Individualized treatment plans are essential, with a look into the underlying causes of the disease, in addition to how this substance abuse can impact the different areas of one’s life. Detox is only the first step toward recovery, our goals are to look into your past and what got you here, along with finding your triggers so we can move forward and avoid relapse in the future.
If you’re serious about your recovery and are ready to find addiction treatment in Fort Lauderdale, Agape has several types of treatment options to fit your needs.
The partial hospitalization program, or PHP, is a partial care program that allows patients to spend their days at the facility getting the help they need while spending in a supportive living environment. While at the treatment facility, the patient will receive any care they would need. This includes mental health counseling, educational sessions about mental health, relapse prevention, and individual and group therapy.
For those that need more support and structure than you’d get from a typical outpatient program, an intensive outpatient is a good option. This is also an appropriate transition for someone leaving an inpatient treatment program. Patients generally are required to attend treatment for 9 to 19 hours per week.
Outpatient services are designed for anyone that needs substance abuse treatment, but with additional flexibility. Each individual has a specific number of hours that are required of them weekly. Services that may be available include:
- Drug addiction therapy
- Individual or group therapy
- Social, vocational, and legal services
Typically, outpatient services are the best choice for those that want to find recovery, but also have to continue going to school, work, or caring for their home and family while they are recovering. There are outpatient treatment options with varying levels of intensity, depending on the individual needs of the patient.
Something that isn’t discussed enough is that mental illness and substance use disorder often go hand-in-hand. Those with mental illnesses, both diagnosed and undiagnosed, are more likely to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol.
With dual diagnosis treatment, those that are struggling with mental health conditions, as well as substance use disorder, can address both issues simultaneously. Often medication is used in conjunction with therapy.
Aftercare and relapse prevention
When someone goes through the work of drug and alcohol rehab, the last thing we want is for them to relapse. Unfortunately, between 40 and 60% of people that have been treated for substance abuse or addiction end up relapsing. These rates are definitely concerning.
The highest risk of relapse is within the first 30-90 days after leaving treatment. With aftercare and relapse prevention, the main goal is to keep those that get clean from relapsing. There are several ways that this type of treatment can help.
