Finding the Best Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center


florida map for best drug rehabMost individuals who struggle with drug or alcohol addiction have, at some point, attempted to stop on their own. Unfortunately, the majority of these attempts end in relapse. The best way to overcome drug and alcohol addiction is with the help of a treatment center. The decision to enter a treatment program can be a scary one and the search to find the best program can be difficult. It is essential to find a rehab facility that is going to cater to the needs of each client by providing individualized services, usually laid out in the form of a treatment plan.

The search for a drug rehab facility is an intimidating experience, to say the least. There are thousands of drug and alcohol rehabs throughout the country that service different types of addicts and alcoholics. Some serve dually diagnosed clients, those with a drug addiction and a co-occurring mental health issue, such as depression or a bipolar disorder while others specialize in treating patients that are “chronic relapsers”, people who are able to stop but inevitably “fall off the wagon.” The disease of addiction is both mental and physical. In order to treat the mental side of addiction, you must first address the physical side. A quality drug rehab will offer a medically supervised detoxification (or detox) to help its clients safely and comfortably get over their physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. Once detoxification is complete, the client will be better able to focus on the mental aspect of their addiction.

Lakeview Health Systems is a nationally accredited addiction treatment center located in Jacksonville, Florida. People come here from all over the country for individualized care, including dual diagnosis treatment and detoxification services. We recognize that every addict has special needs; upon admission, we assess each client and recommend a unique treatment plan, one designed to give them the best chance at achieving long-lasting sobriety. All of our clients participate in a relapse prevention program, cognitive behavioral therapy, a family program, recreational therapy, group therapy, and individual therapy. Highly trained professionals, including licensed therapists, medical professionals, and certified addiction counselors, administer all therapy sessions and groups. We recognize that recovering from drug and alcohol addiction is a slow and methodical process. We help our clients build a strong foundation based on a 12-step program and give them the tools necessary to remain sober after they leave treatment.
