Once addicted to drugs and alcohol, it can be nearly impossible to stop the abuse without some type of professional help. It is not uncommon for people who struggle with addiction to have had numerous failed attempts to stop their drug and alcohol abuse. Their attempts nearly always end up in them relapsing and abusing drugs and alcohol more than ever.
At Lakeview Health, we offer individuals who have battling substance use issues a chance to receive the tools they need to achieve genuine, long-term sobriety. If you or someone you know is in need of help with addictive behaviors or with the mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and PTSD that too often fuel substance abuse, contact the team of addiction specialists at Lakeview Health to learn more about our programs.
The Cost of Addiction
The disease of addiction can be described as a progressive disease. This means that as time goes on, the addiction becomes progressively worse. If left untreated, drug and alcohol addiction will cause numerous serious health conditions and may even result in death. In addition to the health risks, individuals struggling with addiction are often unable to keep up with the demands of work, school, or family. The result is that substance abuse routinely leads to those individuals destroying relationships, losing employment, and breaking ties with the people they once held dear. For some, it has led to jails and other types of institutions.
With professional addiction treatment at a facility like Lakeview Health, however, there is a way forward.
The Importance of Professional Addiction Treatment
Lakeview Health is one of the country’s premier addiction treatment centers, and its Jacksonville, Florida location provides an ideal environment for healing. At Lakeview Health, we understand that each individual struggling with addiction issues is different. This is why we make a point of offering a broad range of treatment options and providing each of our clients with a treatment plan that is designed specifically for their needs and wants. Everyone who struggles with addiction is unique and therefore needs a specific plan for them to stop the downward cycle of their addiction. Among our many programs and treatment options are:
- Gender-specific rehab programs
- Medically-supervised detox
- Residential treatment
- Partial hospitalization program
- Intensive outpatient program
- Comprehensive outpatient care and alumni contact
- First responder program
- Chronic pain treatment center
Additionally, it is common for people to abuse drugs and alcohol to self medicate due to a traumatic experience. To combat this issue, we also offer a dual diagnosis treatment program so that patients with both issues can address them simultaneously and break the vicious cycle of addiction and mental illness. At Lakeview Health, all clients will work with a therapist individually to discuss and process whatever issues need to be dealt with.
Addiction not only affects the struggling addict. It is commonly referred to as a “family disease.” Lakeview Health’s family program is highly regarded and helps family members and friends of the individual suffering from addiction learn about the disease. In the family program, people learn what their role should be in their loved one’s recovery and how to create healthy boundaries. In addition, a family program will teach them what needs to be done in the event that a relapse does occur.
