- Drug & Alcohol Treatment
Medical detoxification is the first step in an effective recovery treatment program. Detox helps to flush the substances you’ve been abusing out from your body and remove built-up toxins from long-term substance abuse. Detox also helps to stabilize your body and minimize physical and mental withdrawal symptoms and the discomfort they bring. Finally, detox helps provide a smooth transition into the next phase of treatment, ensuring that you’re both ready and able to focus on your recovery.
After detox, the next recommended step is inpatient treatment, which involves living in the facility and attending daily meetings and counseling in both group and individual sessions to help get to the root of your addiction. At the long-term residential inpatient facility, The Olive House, you will be surrounded by people going through similar experiences who, along with the treatment staff, can help provide support and motivation to stay committed to your recovery and keep moving forward. Palm Beach Institute can also help those that are struggling with a co-occurring mental health disorder through their dual diagnosis programs.
Once a residential or inpatient program has been completed, it is important to make sure that your treatment doesn’t end there. Returning to your home life along with all the stressors and triggers that go along with it can be a quick recipe for relapse. That’s why Palm Beach Institute offers outpatient programs to help you remain plugged into the recovery community and to help keep you accountable as you transition back into everyday life. Outpatient is also ideal for those with moderate addictions who need to primarily focus on the clinical aspect of their struggles with substance abuse.
It’s a common saying in the field of addiction treatment that recovery doesn’t end after treatment. Addiction is a chronic disease that requires a lifetime of management. The Palm Beach Institute knows that staying connected with others in recovery can make this task that much easier, and that’s just what the Alumni Program does. Through meetings, events, and activities, the Alumni Program ensures that newly-graduated clients can get the continued support they need to stay sober, as well as help early post-treatment challenges like finding housing, employment, and other services.
