When To Consider Alcohol Rehab
It is difficult to evaluate when your use of drugs and alcohol has crossed the line from casual use into substance abuse and alcohol addiction, but there are signs that should not be ignored. You may want to consider looking into alcohol addiction treatment in an alcohol rehabilitation facility if you:
- Find you are craving alcohol in the morning or are always thinking about your next drink
- Feel guilty about how much you are drinking, or drink alone often
- Have loved ones who have brought up your drinking or have asked you to seek addiction treatment
- Are noticing changes in your behaviors, your body, and your overall well-being due to drinking
- Plan social events around drinking, meeting up in bars, or bring a case of beer to any outing
- Are beginning to prioritize drinking over social events, responsibilities, your own interests, or other people’s needs
- Continue to drink alcohol, even when it causes serious issues with your health, your relationship, or your work
Alcohol Rehab: What is It Like?
At Serenity Oaks, there are several levels of care. In residential treatment center, Jacksonville residents will move in for a set amount of time, living within our comfortable and sober residence in a clean and modern semi-private room, with a private bathroom, plenty of storage, and amenities like your own TV, nutritious fresh food and fruit, a Zen Garden, a basketball court, and a tropical Florida atmosphere. After you complete your safe medical detox addiction treatment program, your days will be filled with scheduled alcoholism treatment and therapy appointments, doctor’s visits, groups, life-skills programs, holistic treatments and more. Once your day of addiction rehab programs is over, you can relax in your room, or join us and the other guests in the common areas to hang out or play games.
Types of treatment we provide at Serenity Oaks for residents of Jacksonville Florida include:
- Medical alcohol detox and drug detox options, including medication assisted treatment programs
- Dual diagnosis for co-occurring disorders treatment
- Individual therapy, group therapy and multidimensional family therapy
- Motivational interviewing and incentives
- Behavioral therapy including cognitive behavioral therapy
- Nutrition classes and exercise programs
- Holistic treatments like yoga and meditation
- Life-skills programs and relapse prevention strategies
- Alumni program, 12-step programs, and other peer support
Along with alcohol addiction, at Serenity Oaks we also treat drug abuse issues including cocaine addiction, prescription benzo and opioid addiction, Adderall addiction, Xanax addiction, meth addiction (crystal meth addiction) and heroin addiction, using individualized substance abuse treatments for a personalized drug detox and rehab program that addresses the specific withdrawal symptoms, and the behavioral, social, emotional, and physical health issues that cause alcohol and drug abuse issues.
What is the Least Restrictive Form of Alcohol Rehabilitation?
The most flexible forms of alcohol rehab are outpatient rehab program treatments. There are several levels of care, in which treatment takes place in the recovery center, but you have the option of living at home or staying in a sober living residence. At Serenity Oaks recovery center, we have a partial hospitalization program (PHP) that offers full days of treatment with life skills programs, therapy, behavioral health treatments, medication management, groups and more, 5 or 6 days a week.
Even more flexible than the PHP are our intensive outpatient programs (IOP). This is a customized plan that allows you to come in a few times a week, usually in the mornings or evenings, so you can return to your everyday activities, work, school, family care, or other responsibilities as you get the addiction therapies you need. The IOP can transition over time into a general outpatient alcohol and drug rehab program, which is much more self-directed. You can get the substance abuse treatments you need like therapy and doctor’s appointments as needed, increasing or decreasing the intensity of your program as time goes on and your needs evolve.
How Long Does Alcohol Rehab Last?
Alcohol rehabilitation is a personalized treatment plan that can last for weeks, months, or years. A person who hasn’t been drinking very long and has no co-occurring conditions or health problems may be able to detox and move directly into an IOP, whereas other people may need to spend 30 to 90 days in residential inpatient rehab, in one of our customized medication-assisted treatment detox programs, followed by one of our partial hospitalization programs, with long-term aftercare and support from an alumni program. Somebody in dual diagnosis treatment may require more time in inpatient rehab as well. Each person is unique, and we will work with you to create an inpatient treatment and/or outpatient treatment plan that is right for you.
