Outpatient Drug Treatment

What is Drug Addiction Treatment?

Drug addiction treatment can mean a number of things to different people. Depending upon the individual circumstance and the degree of addiction, an addict or alcoholic may choose a medical maintenance drug treatment program, an outpatient drug treatment program or a residential short- or long-term drug treatment program.

Orchid Recovery Center is an inpatient residential treatment in Palm Beach, Florida, dedicated to serving the needs of women who are suffering from drug and alcohol abuse.

What is Outpatient Treatment?

Outpatient treatment generally requires that those who enroll show up for meetings and classes as well as other commitments though they go home each night. A daily commitment is traditional as well as a commitment to attend a certain number of 12-step meetings each week. Family members may be invited to some sessions and group therapy as well as one-on-one counseling are also generally included.

The challenge for the patient is to maintain abstinence in early sobriety without the 24-hour-a-day supervision allowed by inpatient treatment. Orchid Recovery Center provides the supervision that the newly abstinent need to make it through each day and the guidance to learn how to cope without drugs and alcohol.

What is Inpatient Treatment?

Inpatient treatment provides a medically supervised detoxification to start, a crucial part of any drug treatment experience, especially for those with co-occurring physical ailments or a severe degree of addiction. A break from the daily pressures and lifestyle that contribute to drug use and abuse can be an integral part of recovery.

Orchid Recovery Center in Palm Beach, Florida can be just the break you need to heal and re-assess life choices before returning home to the demands of work and family.

How Do You Know Which Drug Addiction Treatment is Appropriate?

Deciding which treatment is best for you can depend on a number of factors including:

  • The drug of addiction
  • The degree of addiction
  • Co-occurring disorders
  • Time commitments
  • Health problems
  • Drug history and previous treatments

The decision is a personal one but if, for example, you have undergone certain treatments before and they didn’t resonate with you then you will know to try something different. A common mistake that people make is choosing the simplest, easiest method of detoxification with little or no rehabilitation. Breaking the physical addiction to drugs and alcohol is only part of the equation. Sustaining an abstinent life without healing the mental and spiritual wounds that originally led to substance abuse is near to impossible.

At Orchid Recovery Center, we focus on all three aspects of addiction: physical, mental and spiritual. Our treatment program is designed by and provided by women for women with a unique understanding of the pressures and stresses that women endure in daily life that lead to substance abuse and relapse after treatment.
