Often people make the mistake of thinking that they need to go to a drug treatment facility that treats only their type of addiction. This leads people feeling overwhelmed if they are addicted to multiple drugs and/or alcohol. At Drug Treatment Centers Miami Beach, FL, we treat all forms of substance abuse in people of all ages. The truth of the matter is that all addictions share the same underlying dynamics, but the symptoms and behaviors associated with the substance abuse disorder may be different in each addict.
It does not matter whether an addict uses crack cocaine, methamphetamine, Xanax, or Ecstasy, they are doing so because it beings some sort of pleasure or relief. The different treatment programs we offer at the Miami Beach Drug Treatment Facility helps patients find other ways to experience happiness in their lives and discover new methods to reduce stress. As our patients learn and practice new ways of thinking and behaving, they soon realize they do not need to have drugs to live a full and happy life.

When addicts are in the first few weeks of their recovery, they are at the highest risk of relapse. During this time, their drug cravings are extreme and they have not learned constructive ways to cope with their urge to use. If addicts can call up a dealer or have some drugs stashed away in a drawer, chances are their attempt at recovery will be short-lived. While some families are able to monitor their loved one to make sure the addict does not have access to drugs, abstinence is only one of many components of addiction recovery.
At the Miami Beach Drug Treatment Center, we offer people with substance abuse the benefits of a residential drug treatment facility. Within our safe, secure, drug-free environment, people in the first stages of addiction recovery learn new ways of coping with their urge to use drugs and/or alcohol without the temptation of easy access to drugs. In fact, when a person has severe cravings, our board certified addiction recovery doctors can prescribe medication to lessen the addict’s overwhelming urge to use so he or she can focus on their recovery program. In residential treatment, addicts also become part of a community of recovery where they share stories and experiences with other addicts, which can help break the isolation that often accompanies long-term substance abuse.
