How Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab Work?

Very often, it is possible that Tampa alcoholics and addicts whose disease is in early to mid-stages can be treated at an outpatient center near their home. Our goal is to help find the least restrictive drug treatment regimen possible for all patients.

Over 80% of Tampa addicts get help through outpatient programs. These programs help addicted clients who do not require inpatient detoxification or residential hospitalization. In addition, residential patients use outpatient programs to transition from inpatient care to continuing care. Following are brief descriptions of our outpatient services and programs:

Inpatient Drug Treatment in Tampa

If your drinking/drug use has progressed to the point that despite your best efforts, you cannot stop and bad things keep happening as a result of your addiction, you may be referred to an intensive inpatient program.

For most patients, the recommendation brings a sense of relief, for they know that they are losing the battle with their addiction. The time at inpatient is a respite from the stress, frustration, and guilt that are by-products of the untreated disease. For those who enter, it is a time of renewed hope and clarity of mind. It is a time of positive change and a new way of living.

As you are nearing the end of your inpatient program, you and your addiction counselor may meet to plot out your early recovery needs. You may be able return to your life armed with all the necessary tools and a careful plan of recovery activities to sustain your sobriety, as well as the support of a team at a Tampa outpatient rehab clinic closest to your home.

Family Education and Addiction Awareness 

Designed to assist those who live with alcoholics and addicts. Many Tampa Drug and Alcohol Treatment centers conduct an educational program for families of alcoholics and addicts. Family members can learn about addiction dynamics, primary social stressors, and maladaptive reactions. These types of programs are usually held weekly in outpatient centers and are often open to the public.

Group discussions allow family members to ventilate long-suppressed emotions and to share those feelings with other families. Skilled facilitators use a variety of techniques to teach families healthy communication patterns and behaviors. These newly acquired skills nurture a sense of competence in family members who may have lost all hope for change.

  • Poor memory
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Random emotional outbursts
