Recognizing that you or a loved one have a problem with addiction is the first big step. The next one is discovering the world of treatment options available to you and narrowing down what would work best for you.
Drug rehab in Miami could very well be a great fit for you with South Florida becoming a beacon for treatment in recent years and the sun only being a part of that equation.
How Does Drug Rehab Work?
First and foremost, rehab isn’t a one size fits all solution for substance abuse.
There are a plethora of different methodologies that exist in the rehab ecosystem, from evidence-based modalities like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a type of talk therapy, to alternative practices like acupuncture, meditation or music therapy. What’s available at each treatment center varies from place to place just as what works is different for each person.
In general though, all drug rehab follows a similar path starting off with detoxification. While addiction is classed as a disorder, before you can tackle that aspect of it you have to rid your body of the drugs and break the physical dependency first.
After detox, and depending on the severity of your substance abuse, you’d move into some form of treatment. More severe addiction often necessitates inpatient care, where you live at the facility. After completing that, you’d shift to outpatient treatment which would include many of the same therapeutic practices as inpatient rehab, but doesn’t require you live-in. There’s much more flexibility and your rehab would be scheduled around your work, family, school, etc. responsibilities.
Recovery doesn’t end when your rehab does. Aftercare is there to help you sustain your sobriety and is long-term focused. Some treatment centers, like ours, have alumni programs that help maintain the connections you’ve made with us and those like you who have achieved the dream of getting clean.
What Are the Benefits of Going to a Drug Rehab in Miami?
So why Miami?
Weather and the Power of the Sun
To state the obvious, the Sunshine State gets a lot of sun. Miami is a global vacation destination for good reason and the sun is also part of what makes recovering from addiction here so great. Not only does the sunlight have plenty of health benefits but it’s just nice to wake up to a nice ocean breeze, a hint of salt in the air and warms rays of golden light rather than somewhere gloomier.
Remove Yourself From Triggers
The environment that created your addiction is a tough environment in which to beat your addiction because all the people, places and things that trigger your drug use are still surrounding you. Getting out of your area and down to Miami means you don’t have to worry about bumping into someone that might persuade you to relapse, you won’t have access to your dealer when you’re feeling a craving and you won’t be able to hang out at the places you used to get high.
Focus Solely on Recovery
Getting away from what triggers you is no doubt a welcome change for another important reason: it lets you put all of your attention squarely on the work of recovery. Distractions can derail you at any point and minimizing the amount of them that are floating around you is only going to help you reach your goal of sobriety.
