Celebrating Your Freedom From Addiction On This Independence Day

As we experience such unprecedented times during this pandemic, we urge everyone celebrating 4th of July to be cautious in group settings and follow your state’s health guidelines to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you. (For more information on Florida’s restrictions and guidelines, visit https://floridahealthcovid19.gov/, other states please check the CDC website at www.cdc.gov or your state’s website.)

Having said that, as Independence Day celebrations will proceed in a lot of communities, we would like to remind recovering individuals to be extra careful guarding their recovery. As you may know, 4th of July is one of the biggest days of the year for alcohol consumption with 1 billion dollars spent on beer alone with another $568+ million spent on wine and spirits.* Needless to say, that’s a lot of alcohol purchased in a single day translating to, by the sales number above, alcohol is everywhere. Being in such an environment, it’s easy to justify and to fall for “just this once” trap. Unfortunately, this slip-up is prevalent on days like the 4th of July and is one of the most common occasions where individuals start using again.

This year, individuals in recovery have an extra layer of stress and anxiety with the COVID-19 pandemic, and managing a slip up may be difficult in this situation. However, there are ways to enjoy a substance-free Independence Day. CELEBRATE YOUR FREEDOM FROM ADDICTION by abiding by the guidelines set in place to protect your recovery. Even during this pandemic, your recovery guidelines should remain the same. For support group meetings you need more careful forethought, depending on the area you are in, with special planning due to the social distancing rules.

As hard as this pandemic has been on many of us, with shelter-in-place orders, social distancing, business, and school closures, which all have brought greater isolation and potential financial distress, we must remember that THIS TOO SHALL PASS. Many things remain outside our control, but our mindset is the key to coping with the difficult circumstances and facing the unknown. Always remember, when you find yourself stuck and struggling, to reach out to your support group. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us, we are here to help. Stay focused, stay committed, and stay safe. Happy 4th.

Admission Into Our Florida Addiction Treatment Program

During the admissions process into our Florida Rehab Program clients have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the general philosophy of our programs, treatment approach (e.g., individual and group counseling, psycho-education, treatment phases), policies (e.g., family involvement, drug testing, discharge criteria) services offered and our facility’s amenities.

Commonly at this time, clients receive information about confidentiality safeguards, procedures for issuing warnings, terminations, and other treatment-related decisions. Information regarding client’s access to staff members, 24-hour crisis assistance, referrals to any required outside treatment, and transportation for receiving additional care when required (primarily for pregnant women) is also discussed. In addition, clients receive a summary of the Federal alcohol and drug confidentiality regulations along with information about clients’ rights and how to exercise them.

It is important for clients to understand their role in the treatment process and appreciate the importance of regular and timely attendance, participation in support groups and other community activities, compliance with the program, therapy and group rules, completion of homework assignments and submission of drug-testing specimens.

Following these initial steps, depending on the time of the admission, clients are often directed to an intake interview where a counselor will gather detailed information on the client’s substance use patterns and other issues. With the information collected with this Biopsychosocial Assessment, our addiction treatment professionals will be able to develop a therapeutic regimen tailored specifically to address the client’s particular needs. Assessments are important for monitoring each client’s progress and they are repeated and adjusted as needed.

Would you have any questions about our admissions process, or if you need any other treatment-related information please contact us at: 800-643-4005.

Why Some People Repeatedly Relapse?

There are many reasons a person in recovery might start using drugs or alcohol, but the relapse is usually related to a trigger. It’s crucial to realize that relapse does not mean that treatment has failed! If an individual is experiencing chronic relapse it means the treatment needs to be changed. The following are a few reasons why some people repeatedly relapse.

Co-Occurring Disorders Not Addressed in Treatment

Many individuals struggling with substance use have an undiagnosed and untreated co-occurring mental health condition. When there is no treatment for co-existing issues such as depression, anxiety and trauma, the individuals face hard challenges to maintain their recovery.

Person Is Unable to See the Problem

Often times, individuals in the midst of their addiction are not aware of the problems or issues that exasperate their addiction. They are unable to envision recovery. They are not ready and have a hard time committing to their recovery program. This is true especially when they have agreed to the treatment because of the pressure they felt from loved ones.

Repeating the Same Treatment Program

It is not unusual that an individual undergoes multiple treatments with the same result, namely relapsing later and going back to where they started. This is the case when the treatment options that the person chooses is not suitable for his or her situation. In fact, this is one of the most common and overlooked factors when it comes to chronic relapse. Addiction treatment assessment must be thorough, treatment must be comprehensive (Mind, Thought and Consciousness) and therapies need to be specialized to address addiction and underlying mental health conditions.

Pride

Pride can interfere with the individuals’ receptiveness to change. Pride in its worst form can evolve into arrogance, thus making it difficult for the individuals struggling with addiction to seek help. In addition, the individuals suffering from the disease of addiction can feel so prideful that they refuse to acknowledge their own mistakes. By doing so, they can become stuck in the recovery process with no tangible success as they are unable to let go of preconceived ideas and beliefs which must be put aside in order to gain new knowledge and move forward in the recovery process.

Not Enough Willpower

Recovery from a substance use disorder encompasses more than simple abstinence, it also involves willpower. Sustaining recovery requires a long term strategy where willpower can come into play in several different ways. For instance, willpower can help recovering individuals stick to different stages of their recovery, such as aftercare programs by attending support group meetings even when they don’t “feel like it”.

Fear

Some people may be scared of fully recovering from their addiction. Substance abuse has become such an essential part of their self-perceived identity that they may fear to let it go.

Swapping Substances

It is common to see individuals in recovering from drugs to start using alcoholic drinks to replace their drug of choice. Starting the use of other substances will most likely reverse any progress they made in their recovery. This will lead to relapse and back to old habits and conditioning.

Although Chronic Relapse is frustrating, painful, and it can be dangerous, remember you are ultimately in charge, no matter what. DO NOT LOSE HOPE. The path to recovery requires time, structure and often times success is the result of trial and error. If you are seeing yourself or a loved one slipping back into substance use, consider a specialized Chronic Relapse Program.

How We Work

About Us

Reducing the Stigma of Addiction Through Language

Stigma about addiction, which is fed and reinforced by public perceptions, still remains the biggest barrier to Substance Use Disorder (SUDs) treatment, despite the efforts taken to educate the public about the disease.

We, as treatment professionals responsible for helping individuals overcome addiction, make a conscious effort to correct stereotypes and misconceptions however we can. One way is by choosing the language that is not stigmatizing when talking about addiction and drug use.

Destigmatizing the language associated with SUDs will allow individuals who need help to regain their self-esteem, allow lawmakers to appropriate funding, allow doctors to treat without the disapproval of their peers, allow insurers to cover treatment, and help the public understand that this is a medical condition, and it is as real as any other disease. Below is a list of stigmatizing words and phrases which could be replaced with the suggested “preferred terminology”, as a start to better communication with others about addiction. Choosing the words we use more carefully is one way we can all make a difference and help decrease the stigma associated with this national problem.

Addict, Abuser, Junkie

Problem with the terms: These terms are demeaning because they label a person by his/her illness. By making no distinction between the person and the disease, they deny the dignity and humanity of the individual. In addition, these labels imply permanency to the condition, leaving no room for a change in status.

Preferred terminology:
Person in active addiction, person with a substance misuse disorder, person experiencing an alcohol/drug problem, patient (if referring to an individual receiving treatment services).

Abuse

Problem with the term: Although “abuse” is a clinical diagnosis in the DSMIV and ICD10, it is stigmatizing because: (1) it negates the fact that addictive disorders are a medical condition; (2) it blames the illness solely on the individual with the illness, ignoring environmental and genetic factors, as well as the ability of substances to alter brain chemistry; (3) it absolves those selling and promoting addictive substances of any wrongdoing; and (4) it feeds into the stigma experienced not only by individuals with addictive disorders but also family members and the addiction treatment field.

Preferred terminology:
Misuse, harmful use, inappropriate use, hazardous use, problem use, risky use.

Clean, Dirty (when referring to drug test results)

Problem with the terms: Commonly used to describe drug test results, these terms are stigmatizing because they associate illness symptoms (i.e. positive drug tests) with filth.

Preferred terminology:
Negative, positive, substance-free.

Habit or Drug Habit

Problem with the terms: Calling addictive disorders a habit denies the medical nature of the condition and implies that resolution of the problem is simply a matter of willpower in being able to stop the habitual behavior.

Preferred terminology:
Substance misuse disorder, alcohol and drug disorder, alcohol and drug disease, active addiction.

Replacement or Substitution Therapy

Problem with the terms: This implies that treatment medications such as buprenorphine are equal to street drugs like heroin. The term suggests a lateral move from illegal addiction to legal addiction, and this does not accurately characterize the true nature of the treatment. The essence of addiction is uncontrollable compulsive behavior. The first goal of addiction treatment is to stop this dangerous addictive behavior. With successful buprenorphine therapy, as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, the dangerous addictive behavior is stopped not replaced

Preferred terminology:
Treatment, medication-assisted treatment, medication.

User

Problem with the term: The term is stigmatizing because it labels a person by his/her behavior. It is also misleading because the term user has come to refer to one who is engaged in risky misuse of substances, but ‘use’ alone is not necessarily problematic.

Preferred terminology:
Referring to use: person who misuses alcohol/drugs.

Referring to misuse: person engaged in risky use of substances.

Drug and Alcohol Detox in Florida

Most individuals struggling with substance use disorder require withdrawal management before starting any rehabilitation therapeutic treatment. For instance, individuals with severe alcohol use disorders, anxiolytic substance use disorders (particularly abuse of benzodiazepines or barbiturates), polysubstance use disorders, and opiate use disorders (e.g., heroin, morphine, etc.) are very likely to develop intense withdrawal symptoms once they discontinue drug use. In the case of withdrawal from alcohol, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and certain other classes of drugs, there is a potential that the individual will experience seizures during the withdrawal process, and there is a potential that some seizures can have serious and even fatal consequences. Although no one can predict who will develop seizures and who will not, physician-supervised withdrawal management, or medical detox, is recommended for all those struggling with addiction to these drugs.

At Florida Center for Recovery (FCR) withdrawal management is provided by our experienced medical and clinical team who is available 24 hours a day to make the detox process as safe and comfortable as possible. Upon admission, each client is given a thorough medical exam and nursing assessment. Clients follow individualized withdrawal management protocols that are carefully monitored and tailored to address detox symptoms. During this process, clients are engaged in biofeedback sessions at our Serenity Lounge practicing deep-breathing and learning relaxation techniques to help with stress, restlessness and anxiety. When using these techniques, clients are able to establish a coherence baseline and are able to take charge of their emotional reactions. Slowing down the stressful vibration helps recovering individuals re-establish the cooperation and balance between the body, mind and emotions.

Beyond Medical Detox
After medical detox, FCR’s clients receive traditional counseling, holistic and alternative therapies, where they are educated about the disease of addiction and learn how to identify and understand the issues that may have caused their addiction. Therapeutic treatment is offered in private and in a group setting and often involves family members and loved ones when recommended by the client’s primary therapist.

WHAT IS DETOX IN ADDICTION RECOVERY?

 

ADHD and Addiction

What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children. ADHD also affects many adults. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention (not being able to keep focus), hyperactivity (excess movement that is not fitting to the setting) and impulsivity (hasty acts that occur at the moment without thought). ADHD is a treatable disorder that can be managed with medication and therapy. Unfortunately, many undiagnosed individuals often self-medicate with addictive substances such as alcohol, marijuana, heroin, prescription tranquilizers, pain medication, cocaine and street amphetamines in attempts to calm their overactive brains and bodies.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and addiction are common co-occurring conditions often sharing similar signs and symptoms. Since these conditions have such an extensive overlap, treatment for these two disorders usually involves a dual diagnosis program.

Several studies have shown a strong connection between ADHD, drug abuse, and alcoholism.  ADHD is five to 10 times more common among adult alcoholics than it is in people without the condition. Among adults being treated for alcohol and substance abuse, the rate of ADHD is about 25%.

Mood Disorders and Addiction

What Are Mood Disorders?

The clinical definition of the term “mood disorder” is a disturbance in a person’s mood, which is, or eventually becomes, the underlying cause of a detrimental physical or mental condition. One of the most well-known mood disorders is clinical depression, which can be the underlying cause for a host of physical maladies, including, extreme fatigue, joint and muscle pain, and more. Individuals suffering from mood disorders are frequently misdiagnosed as hypochondriacs or attention-seekers. But mood disorders are very, very real. In addition to clinical depression, other examples of well-known mood disorders are:

  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

A mood disorder is classified as substance-induced if its roots can be traced directly back to the physiological effects of a specific substance the individual is using. It is not uncommon for mood disorders to occur simultaneously with a substance abuse disorder; such a condition is known in the medical community as a “co-occurring disorder.” One example of such would be a manic episode caused by the use of cocaine. Quite often an individual’s mood disorder comes to light during the process of withdrawal.

Regardless of whether a mood disorder exists simultaneously with substance abuse, or it doesn’t, treating the mood disorder is just as important as treating substance addiction. If mood disorders are not properly treated, the individual is much more likely to relapse at a later time.

Integrated Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health Services

At Florida Center for Recovery (FCR) we understand the link between substance use and its underlying mental health conditions, and to effectively address both we provide comprehensive therapeutic programs.

Biosound Therapy

As part of the Florida Center for Recovery’s (FCR) innovative approach in the treatment of addiction, we combine medical detox with biofeedback sessions through Biosound® Therapy. The purpose of providing this healing therapy within our addiction treatment program is to enable recovering individuals to recognize and control negative emotions and reactions before they leave treatment. This powerful treatment approach is delivered at our Serenity Lounge, where a combination of music, choreographed imagery, vibrations and bi-neural beats are utilized to help recovering clients achieve a natural meditative state. During this Biosound® Therapy, the guided imagery selections provided are designed to take the individual deeper into a subconscious theta brainwave state where positive messages can be delivered successfully.

Individuals who receive this holistic therapy are also able to practice deep-breathing and learn to control bodily processes that are normally involuntary, such as muscle tension, blood pressure, and heart rate—all of which contribute to the promotion of stress and anxiety relief.

Additionally, Biosound® Therapy aids individuals during and after medical detox by helping with eliminating or greatly minimizing, withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, agitation, pain, fatigue, and racing thoughts—all of which oftentimes lead to relapse. Learning to manage these emotions is a big part of addiction treatment and through the meditation and self-reflection techniques found in Biosound® Therapy, individuals leaving our addiction treatment program are better equipped to deal with the challenges of long term recovery.

For those who are not familiar with this therapeutic treatment, Biosound® Therapy is delivered in a vibrational platform constructed with memory foam and integrated with an audio/visual delivery system.

How does Biosound® Therapy work?

  • Binaural beats induce a theta level meditative state
  • Coherent heart rhythm patterns synchronize the body’s nervous system
  • Deep resonant vibrational tones relieve pain
  • Low harmonic frequencies trigger a natural relaxation response
  • Positive affirmations develop mindfulness and awareness

Biosound® Therapy Is Healing with:

  • Brainwave Entrainment
  • Therapeutic Music
  • Vibrational Massage
  • Sound Frequencies
  • Guided imagery

Relapse Prevention

One of the most important goals in addiction treatment is to equip clients with the tools and strategies necessary to prevent relapse. At Florida Center for Recovery, clients are engaged in a variety of therapies that are specially designed to help prevent relapse. Working through this therapeutic regimen, clients are taught to recognize triggers that may lead to relapse. Also, during Relapse Prevention Therapy, clients learn how to change negative behaviors to make positive choices. During Relapse Prevention Therapy, many clients for the first time fully understand the dynamics of their addiction and the factors that may have caused it. Using a combination of individual cognitive-behavioral therapy and group sessions, recovering clients are better equipped to cope with real-life situations once they leave treatment.

Scientific studies have shown that comprehensive relapse prevention is critical to the success of any drug addiction treatment or alcohol addiction treatment program. Florida Center for Recovery makes a total commitment to providing you with the most effective Relapse Prevention treatments available. Consequently, Relapse Prevention is a critical component of all our addiction treatment therapies.

In Relapse Prevention Therapy you will Learn:

  • Mindfulness
  • How to Identify your Warning Signs
  • How to Know your Triggers
  • How to Manage your Sober Time
  • How to Develop a Solid Foundation for your Recovery

MINDFULNESS

“Mindfulness” practice enables clients to stay in the moment, bringing the clarity to react positively to any current situation. Mindfulness provides individuals struggling with addiction with greater awareness of their own power, increases alertness, and vastly improves the ability to resist a relapse.

IDENTIFY WARNING SIGNS

Relapses don’t just come out of left-field and are not an inevitable part of the road to recovery. Every relapse is preceded by warning signs. Many circumstances, thinking patterns and behaviors can trigger relapse. Learning how to recognize these triggers will help in a successful recovery. Our expert rehab therapists and counselors teach clients how to recognize these warning signs and what to do when they occur.

KNOWING THE TRIGGERS

A trigger can be anything that will cause the recovering individual to use drugs or alcohol. At our addiction treatment facility, our counselors and therapists teach clients how to identify your triggers and how to handle them constructively to prevent relapsing.

MANAGING SOBER TIME

Taking the toxins from the body is not the toughest task in addiction treatment. However, once the poisons leave the system, staying clean and sober requires a relentless commitment to recovery. How to manage the time while sober has a huge impact on whether or not a client stay sober. During addiction treatment, we teach clients how to most effectively manage sober time while keeping the mind fully engaged to eliminate boredom. As any addict knows, boredom can be one of the most powerful relapse triggers. In the course of our addiction treatment program, clients join peers in a number of fun and healthful activities, including yoga, art therapy, team building activities, and physical exercise programs. Learning how to keep busy and engaged in a variety of activities can greatly decrease the chances of relapse.

DEVELOPING A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR RECOVERY

At Florida Center for Recovery, we know how tough re-emersion into the real world at the first can be, and we prepare each client for the challenges they will be faced after leaving rehab. Our counselors and therapists work with each client to create a customized relapse prevention plan.
