Substance Use Disorder Treatment
Drug addiction (substance use disorder) is a serious mental illness and brain disorder that affects virtually every facet of a person’s life. Of course, we often associate drug addiction with behavior, particularly as many people who suffer from addiction must often go to great lengths to support their drug habits. Unfortunately, drug addiction results in profound deterioration of one’s physical and psychological health, damage to important relationships, loss of many opportunities, and numerous other effects.
That’s where we come in. Coalition Recovery is the premier drug rehab located in beautiful Tampa Bay, Florida. We offer the latest and most advanced therapies as part of a customizable recovery curriculum. If you’ve been looking for a facility that’s distinct from most other Florida drug rehabilitation centers, Coalition Recovery provides an experience that’s effective and yields real results. We not only treat the illness itself but also help heal the many other aspects that have been hindered through addiction; such as rebuilding relationships, constructing new life objectives like education and careers to grow an overall sense of connection and purpose. Whether you’ve developed a problem with cocaine, heroin, prescription painkillers, benzodiazepines, hallucinogens, or any other substance, we can help you begin your transformation to regain sobriety and become your best self.
Our Drug Treatment Program
The heart of our substance abuse treatment is the 90-day program. Those involved in our 90-day program will attend treatment throughout the week as well as the option of being housed in a recovery residence. In our experience, a three-month duration for treatment is the “magical amount.” It allows for a gradual step down in intensity to ensure the greatest opportunity for success. During the first month, clients will learn about themselves and their addiction. It is over the later 2 months where our clients begin to learn the knowledge and life skills needed to maintain sobriety and thrive in their new substance-free life.
The process of treatment is not something that can be rushed. It can take many months to fully understand the illness of a substance use disorder, as well as the time it takes to learn new information, skills, and strengths needed to live clean and sober. The individual who attends the program at the recommended duration will have a greater chance for success than those who expedite the process.
It should be noted, typically starting at 2-week mark there will be a “roadblock period” in which individuals begin to feel uneasy about their current state as a result of their new and abnormal sober life. During this stage, it is very common for individuals to lose their motivation for self-help and throw in the towel; for this reason, it is incredibly important they are surrounded by a supportive and understanding community to help them through these difficult times. This is a crucial time period because once over this hill, individuals will begin to feel relaxed and happy. It is during this stage people begin to understand the importance of their time here and treatment becomes more meaningful. Therefore, we always recommend that for at least the first month, individuals in our 90-day program live in a recovery residence as this gives us the chance to continually foster their progress during their time here.
Supporting Your Unique Recovery Journey
No matter the drug to which a person has become addicted, it’s not easy to get sober. Many people try to get sober on their own and are unsuccessful, eventually resigning themselves to remain in active addiction indefinitely. What they don’t often realize is that an individual’s success in recovery depends largely on the level of support that he or she is given, making programs such as ours even more important.
From the time you walk in the door on the first day of treatment to your graduation from our program, the staff at Coalition Recovery is thoroughly invested in your success throughout the rehabilitation process. One of the top causes of relapse after treatment is the failure of an individual’s recovery needs to be met, so identifying and addressing your needs in recovery is among our top priorities as you get started on your journey of rehabilitation. Meanwhile, we continue to make ourselves available to you, offering any level of support needed to guarantee your success in recovery. We pride ourselves in being an intimate rehab, meaning our client to therapist ratio is extremely low (5:1 whereas most centers are 12:1). This gives our counselors and therapists time to truly connect with our clients individually – one of the most important aspects of therapy.
The Timeline of Your Drug Treatment
During the first couple of days here at our program, a Clinical Psychologist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and Board Certified Addiction Psychiatrist will work with you on your personalized program. It is during this time we assess a proper medical diagnosis, administer medication if needed, and configure a treatment plan. We’ll evaluate for underlying trauma, anger issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other common co-occuring disorders. We utilize standardized instruments to track establish baselines and track progress throughout treatment. Treatment plans are formulated around each person individually and typically revolve around a person’s end goals and initiatives. These goals could include things like housing, employment, relationships, health, and happiness.
In the first month of our 90-day day/night program, we focus on adapting to your new and sober life of sobriety. This stage can be troublesome for many as the substances once used to deal with stress and anxiousness can no longer be used as a crutch. Thus during this time, we learn new skills and methods for how to overcome adversities in a healthier and more appropriate manner. This can be a shock for some as these methods take continual effort and management unlike using drugs, but over the next couple of months, the overall benefit of being clean and sober will make the development of these skills worthwhile.
A Specialized Program Made Just For You!
There are many drug rehab centers in Tampa, but Coalition Recovery has set the bar much higher than most others. For one thing, we don’t treat your recovery as if it’s one-size-fits-all. The treatments and resources that work for one person won’t always be optimal for everyone, which is why each of our patients receives a completely customized, individualized curriculum. What’s more, an individualized treatment regimen addresses the multi-faceted needs of those suffering from substance abuse problems. For instance, finding the source of an individual’s substance-abuse problem is a huge part of recovery; whether it was exposure to drug use during one’s childhood, an undiagnosed mental or emotional disorder causing a need for dual-diagnosis treatment, trauma, or a plethora of other unresolved issues.
“I’ve already been to rehab, I only need a detox”
Whether this is your first time in treatment or your 10th, our mission is to make it your last. It is important to note that not all treatment centers are the same. At Coalition Recovery, we pride ourselves in maintaining the highest standards of clinical and medical treatment available. We continually adapt our curriculum meaning what you learn here at Coalition Recovery is the most advanced and improved therapies to date. Therefore, by attending our treatment, you’ll be learning the current and most up to date methods on how to handle your substance use disorder.
Continued Outpatient Care for Drug Abuse
After completing PHP (30-45 days), you’ll step down to an oupatient level of care known as IOP (intensive outpatient), which lasts 3-5 days a week for 60 days. Clients at this stage may also drive from home or live at a recovery residence.
While there are numerous reasons why individuals in need of treatment fail to seek help for their substance abuse problems, one of the most common is the inability to fit an addiction treatment program into their busy and somewhat hectic lives. Whether you’re someone with a family, a demanding career, or a host of other tenuous obligations – it’s a difficult situation to be in when your responsibilities prevent you from getting the help you need. With our 90-day drug rehab program we can be flexible, and we believe we have developed a way to accommodate even the most unforgiving schedules. Our treatment regimen offers flexibility without compromise by incorporating many of the same industry-leading treatments and therapeutic techniques as residential and inpatient rehabs.
Levels of outpatient range from Intensive Outpatient (IOP) which can be 3-5 days a week to standard Outpatient which can range from one day a week to one day a month. We recommend the highest level you can do while still maintaining your daily responsibilities to give yourself the best chance for success.
