What is an Addiction Treatment Facility or Substance Abuse Treatment Center?
What is an Addiction Treatment Facility or a Substance Abuse Treatment Center?
An addiction treatment facility or a substance abuse treatment center is a place where men, women, adults, or adolescents seek to overcome addictive behaviors and thinking. Patients in need of alcohol and drug rehab in Boca Raton need help to rebuild their self-esteem, rebuild their mental health, and regain their healthy lifestyle habits. At Treatment Alternatives, we’re here to help patients reach these,
and many other goals, at our safe drug rehab center.
Choosing a Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center in Boca Raton
A credible addiction treatment facility will always be licensed. While many places claim to offer treatment for addictions, they remain unregulated by the state and do not have licensed medical staff, such as therapists or physicians attending patients. These places do not design addiction treatment programs based upon scientific evidence. Addiction treatment can be complex; it may require appropriately prescribed medication, and behavioral therapies.
You, your health, and your mental and physical wellbeing are too important to trust to a facility that is not licensed. Our alcohol and drug rehab in Boca Raton is licensed in patient care and rehabilitative treatment. Our safe drug rehab center is accredited by The Joint Commission.
We follow all guidelines when providing drug and alcohol abuse recovery at our drug rehab in Boca Raton. The National Institute of Mental Health, The American Society of Addiction Medicine, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration, and the National Institute of Drug Addiction all promote guidelines and best practices for facilities offering substance abuse treatment. These best practices are based upon serious scientific data and analysis and should be incorporated into the structure of the addiction treatment program.
Helping Patients Find Freedom in Sobriety
At Treatment Alter
natives, we believe that safe and effective drug rehab in Boca Raton should be focused on the patient. We provide our patients with the tools they need to live sober and addiction free. This requires the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that is continually re-evaluated and updated. Based upon every patient’s needs, a multidisciplinary team works closely providing him or her with:
- Therapeutic help (individual and group and alternative therapies)
- Drug and alcohol education
- Relapse prevention (coping with triggers and cravings)
- Life skills (coping with stress and strong feelings, healthy recreational activities)
- A fully developed aftercare plan
- Sober living houses, if needed
These are the foundation for long-term recovery. This enables each client to live life without drugs, alcohol or other destructive addictive behaviors.
Addiction destroys lives, destroys families, and destroys the health of the abuser and the family associated with the abuser. Addiction devastates neighborhoods and the economy. But, addiction can be stopped. Substance abuse, like other diseases such as diabetes, requires ongoing work and regular check-ups. Given the right combination of treatment elements the chances of staying clean and sober for the long-term are greatly increased.
Treatment Alternatives is proud to be the recipient of the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal. We continually strive to provide patients with innovative, comprehensive treatment protocols based upon the latest scientific data. Our staff of physicians with a specialty in addiction medicine, our Master Level therapists and alternative treatment clinicians, work closely as a team to provide every client with the building blocks for a strong recovery foundation. We are here to make sober living possible with alcohol and drug rehab in Boca Raton.
