What Does Alcohol Rehab Consist Of?
At our alcohol rehab in South Florida, we offer comprehensive treatment services that encompass everything that you need to overcome alcohol use disorder. We guide you through every step with compassionate support.
Your treatment plan will be personalized to account for all of your individual needs. We can identify potential mental disorders that are co-occurring with addiction, look at your education, career, medical history, and anything that may be affecting your ability to remain sober.
At Legacy Healing Center’s alcohol rehab, the first step after a full evaluation is to help you through the withdrawal process. Alcohol withdrawal can be intense and medical supervision is advised. At Legacy Healing Center, we will provide you with around-the-clock care to deal with any complications and manage your symptoms.
Following your detox, you will then begin with the core of your treatment program: holistic treatments and behavioral therapy. These therapies and treatments enable your growth and will ultimately give you the tools and means to achieve long-term sobriety. Our healthcare professionals will work with you in a private and group setting, supporting you and treating you with evidence-based therapeutic models.
Finally, the support and care that we provide stretches beyond your residential or outpatient program. You will have the contact details for a personal sober coach that will be there as support for you during difficult times. We also hold alumni events that allow you to engage with a supportive community and learn from guest speakers. Learn more about “How Long Does Rehab Last“.
First, Alcohol Detox
Alcohol detoxification can be dangerous if you attempt to do it alone. Once you are physically dependent on alcohol, the withdrawal that you go through can be severe. In our alcohol detox program, we can ensure that your symptoms are safely managed. Our healthcare professionals will be by your side through the ordeal, monitoring your health so that you can make a safe recovery.
Among the symptoms that we will treat with FDA-approved medications include insomnia, heavy sweating, vomiting and nausea, anxiety, and headaches. As the symptoms peak, you may start to experience hallucinations and seizures. Among the most severe symptoms include fever, confusion, high blood pressure, and a rapid heart rate. With the medication that we can provide, these symptoms can be reduced and managed safely.
Getting to The Root of Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol addiction doesn’t discriminate. It is a mental disorder that can form relatively quickly if a person is prone to the disease. Three main factors control your risk of addiction: your development, biology, and environment.
Your biological addiction risk factor is the most important out of the three main factors. It accounts for roughly half of your addiction risk. It includes the things that you are born with, such as your gender and the presence of a mental disorder that hasn’t been properly treated.
Among the environmental factors that can cause addiction include stress, peer pressure, mental and physical abuse, and the lack of parental guidance. The developmental factors are essentially how your environmental and biological factors interact during crucial developmental stages in your life. Drinking alcohol during these stages can alter the way your brain develops and make your more susceptible to addiction in your later life.
At our alcohol rehab, we explore these causes of addiction in order to provide you with treatment to overcome them.
Overcoming Addiction with Therapy
Behavioral therapy is one of the most important steps of recovery. It is where you will learn coping skills, alter habits and behaviors that aren’t beneficial, and learn new ways to live an alcohol-free life.
At Legacy Healing Center, we will guide you through various evidence-based behavioral therapies. Some of the therapies that you may be involved with include psychodynamic therapy, process therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and motivation enhancement therapy. These therapies encompass some of the best-known ways to help you recover from alcohol use disorder and build a sober life that is sustainable.
We also incorporate holistic healing programs which treats other areas of your life that may be interacting with your substance use. For example, many people with alcohol use disorder will also have another mental health problem such as depression or an anxiety disorder. Alcohol becomes a way to self-medicate but not a long-term solution.
