Residential Drug Treatment

What is Drug Addiction Treatment?

The types of drug addiction treatments are as varied as the drugs they treat and the people who enroll in them. With doctors, scientists and epidemiologists producing new research every year, there are constant updates and new developments to the concept of what drug addiction treatment is and how it can be most effective. Different theories about drug use and treatment create a variety of foundations upon which drug treatment organizations are built. The most common are abstinence-based programs in which tools for total freedom from drug and alcohol use are taught. At Orchid Recovery Center in Palm Beach, Florida, it is our philosophy that you can live a healthy, happy life without the use of drugs and alcohol.

Why Choose a Residential Drug Treatment?

Depending upon the co-existing conditions that a woman may be experiencing along with alcohol and drug addiction (i.e. mental conditions, post traumatic stress syndrome, eating disorders) the type of treatment that will be most appropriate will vary. Generally speaking, the best drug addiction treatment comes in the form of a residential drug treatment facility that allows for 30-day, three-month or six-month stay. With total immersion into a drug treatment program, the addict or alcoholic will be able to remove herself from the situations that may have contributed to her drug use as a well as find the space and time to heal physically and develop a strong foundation for a lifetime of recovery.

What Does a Residential Drug Treatment Program Entail?

The primary goal of residential drug treatment is to provide each person who enters with the skills they will need to successfully avoid drug use after they leave. First, however, physical dependence on the substance of abuse must be undertaken through a supervised detox. This may be a medicated detox, depending upon the substance and the degree of addiction. This may take anywhere from three to seven days, after which you will be ready to take on other aspects of your recovery.
