Addiction Treatment In Fort Myers, Florida

While you compare various options for rehab programs, keep in mind that they vary significantly as far as how helpful they are. You should look into programs that help you improve multiple areas of your life in addition to getting treatment for an addiction.

These programs often include life skills services, such as personal finance classes, nutrition classes, parenting classes, vocational training, and similar services. These are offered in addition to treatment services for addiction.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

The withdrawal phase that happens when you give up alcohol or drugs can take a serious toll on you both mentally and physically. This is why having support and safety are so important at this time.

Detox programs that include medical assistance or monitoring provide supportive care in a secure setting. When you’re done with a detox program, you can then enter a treatment program.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

During an inpatient program, you can expect to stay at a rehab center that has 24-hour supervision. Doctors, counselors, and other professionals are there to offer support and treatment services. Peers are also on hand to provide additional support.

Being in an inpatient program often means having multiple services as part of your treatment plan. These might include behavioral counseling in various forms, other types of therapy, stress management training, holistic care, or gender-specific treatment.

Outpatient Treatment

If you’re dealing with an addiction that isn’t considered severe, you can focus on finding an outpatient program that fits your needs.

Outpatient programs, which include partial hospitalization, day treatment, intensive care, and traditional care, provide behavioral therapy in group or individual settings as needed. Instead of having to stay in a facility, you’ll only visit one to attend these therapy sessions.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

When you need to overcome an addiction to alcohol or opioids, consider medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT programs include behavioral therapy and medication, such as Vivitrol, to help relieve cravings and dependence.

Aftercare & Alumni Services

Treatment programs go a long way toward helping you become sober, but it’s common to need ongoing support once you finish rehab.

You can get this support with aftercare and alumni services. While these services are different at each rehab center, you might have access to community resources, sober-living housing, recovery coaching, or 12-step programs.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Addiction treatment programs vary in length, including 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days. In some cases, these programs can last for over a year or only last for a few weeks. Longer programs are associated with improved results in terms of a long-term recovery.

How To Pay For Treatment

Using your private health insurance is among the more common ways to pay for addiction treatment. When you have a private health insurance plan, go through your coverage to determine if these services are covered fully or partially.

Other payment options include sliding fee scales, Medicare plans, Medicaid plans, and custom payment plans.
