Boca Raton Rehabilitation Centers
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there are more than 14,500 drug addiction treatment facilities in the United States. It’s quite possible that many of these facilities do their work in the Boca Raton area. While addictions are common, they’re also private affairs and many people work hard to keep their problems and their treatments a secret. As a result, they might look for treatment facilities located far away from home, and Boca Raton provides a perfect cover. The state’s official tourism marketing corporation reports that 89.3 million people visited Florida in 2012, so people with addictions might plausibly hide their treatments by telling their friends they’re just taking a vacation to one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Vacationers like this could be a boon for people who need addiction treatment and who already live in the Boca Raton area. With just a little bit of research, they’ll be able to find the kind of care that could help them to leave an addiction in the past.
Finding the Right Program
Addiction treatment programs are tailored, based on a person’s:
- History of drug abuse
- Drug of choice
- Mental health status
- Physical health
Some programs take customization a little bit further, however. These programs really look for ways to reach through and help people overcome the serious addiction issues they face. For women who have addictions, this might mean tailoring programs in order to provide help for trauma resolution. In a study addressing this issue, published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, researchers found that 68 percent of addicted women had been victims of unwanted sexual contact. Studies like this seem to suggest that women turn to addiction as a coping mechanism as they try to live with unwanted memories and horrific incidents of trauma. Programs made just for women might be aware of this issue, and the help these programs provide might allow women to deal with the psychic distress they feel as a result.
Starting a Search
Some doctors are adept at spotting signs of addiction in their clients, and they might also be aware of treatment options available in the Boca Raton area. Women who are confronted with an addiction at the end of a medical appointment might be provided with recommendations about treatment facilities, if they see doctors like this. However, not all doctors are asked to deal with addiction in their clients, and not all clients have their addictions spotted in their appointments. Women like this, or their families, might need to do their own research, looking for facilities that might provide the kind of help the women need, and then calling to ask about availability and price. Some facilities offer online tours of their facilities, along with descriptions of the programs they use, and this can be helpful as families begin to look for addiction help.
