We will help you to assess the seriousness of your drug or alcohol abuse problem and to locate the Florence Alcohol Rehab or Drug Treatment Center that will best be suited to your individual needs.

The different types of drug treatment in Florence, AL. can include holistic drug and alcohol rehabilitation, Short-term Drug Treatment Centers, Long-term Treatment Programs, Outpatient Treatment, Inpatient Treatment Programs, partial hospitalization, and sober living just to name a few. The type of Alcohol Rehabilitation or Drug Treatment Center that is needed will depend upon the degree of dependence, the individual's social situation, and the kind of substance which they have become addicted to.

The ultimate goal of all Alcohol Rehab or Drug Rehabilitation Centers should be to enable the individual from Florence, Alabama to achieve lasting abstinence. Much research has indicated that in order for drug and alcohol addiction treatment to be effective, it must teach the individual how to change to their compulsive behaviors in order to remove the addiction and to be able to avoid a possible relapse. Overall, Alcohol Rehab or Drug Rehabilitation Facilities need to address both the physical and psychological dependency of an addiction; the behavioral and social symptoms also need to be adequately addressed before an individual from Florence can have the tools that they will need to help sustain that recovery for the remainder of his or her life.

Drug detox is the first step in the Florence, AL. rehabilitation treatment process toward recovery from a drug and alcohol addiction. The main goal in this component of the Florence Drug Rehab or Alcohol Rehabilitation Center is to rid the body of toxins that accumulate over the course of a long term drug or alcohol addiction. It is very common to see individuals from Florence, AL. in drug detox that has combined different drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or pain pills with alcohol.

When an individual from Florence has sustained the use of any of these various kinds of drugs, it causes adaptations within their body that lessen the drug's original effects over time; this is a phenomenon that is known as drug tolerance. At this point, the individual from Florence, Alabama has developed a physical dependency on the substance and withdrawal symptoms will be experienced upon discontinuation. The reason that it is imperative that an individual from Florence have professional supervision during the detox process is because the staff at an Alcohol Treatment or Drug Rehab Center can help to make this process much easier by administering elements of treatment that can help to alleviate some of the painful withdrawal symptoms.

Once the early stages of withdrawal have passed, an individual from Florence will then be able to begin a directed, Drug Rehabilitation or Alcohol Treatment Program that will begin to address aspects of the psychological dependency by teaching behavioral skills that will help them to function without the use of alcohol or drugs. This component in drug recovery treatment will usually involve some type of individual or group counseling. There may also be occupational and behavioral therapies that are utilized as components of treatment in order to help to teach the individual from Florence, AL. life and social skills that may have been lost while they were under the influence of addiction.

Before an addict is finally willing to surrender to the Drug Treatment or Alcohol Rehab Program process, they may have already made repeated promises to their loved ones in Florence who have been experiencing the negative effects from the individual's drug or alcohol abuse; because of the way that these substances chemically alter the person's brain, these empty promises cannot be fulfilled. If loved ones in Florence, Alabama continue to believe these empty promises, it could possible mean that the addicted person will then have time to overdose on drugs or have a serious car accident while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

In an Alcohol Treatment or Drug Rehabilitation Program, the individual from Florence will become educated about the ways that drugs and alcohol affect the various functions of the brain; they will learn that it was these physiological changes that made it almost impossible for them to stop using on their own, and not personal integrity. As an individual from Florence, AL. learns more about how to deal with drug triggers and as they master to the tools that they will need to use in order to stay sober when they return home to Florence, they will become confident in their ability to do so.
