Lauderhill Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facilities

Lauderhill, FL, in Broward County, sees its fair share of sun and tourism, just like many other Floridian cities. Sadly, it is also plagued by substance abuse and addiction.

According to a 2012-2014 report, more than 308,000 people aged 12 or older in Broward County reported past-month binge alcohol use and about 106,000 people reported marijuana use. Further, nearly 53,000 people in this same age group reported past-year abuse of prescription painkillers.1 Chronic substance abuse can lead to physiological dependence and addiction. Once someone is addicted, it can be extremely difficult to quit using on their own, which is why professional detox and addiction treatment can be beneficial.

Detox is a group of interventions, such as medical care and medication, aimed at managing withdrawal symptoms while the body rids itself of all traces of the abused substance. It is a way to stabilize the patient before they begin their intensive addiction treatment; it is not a substitute for substance abuse treatment, but rather an initial step toward sobriety.

In many cases, rehab centers near Lauderhill begin with detox in the same facility, but at other times, rehab begins only after a person has already gone through detox in a program designed specifically for this purpose.4 Either way, it’s important to find a program that can adequately address all of your needs.

Drug and alcohol rehab centers are available near you and can help with many different types of addictions. You can find facilities in your area by looking through our directory.

    More Info
    Exploring Lauderhill Treatment Centers Lauderhill, Florida is located in Broward County. Crime rates in this primarily African-American community are approximately twice the national average. Property crimes, such as theft and burglary, are the most frequent. One of the motives for burglary is to find valuables to sell in order to support an addiction. A person with a physical dependence on drugs will go to great lengths to support such a habit, regardless of who gets hurt in the process. There is an alternative, however - and that is to get help in overcoming the addiction.Things to Discuss Before Enrolling in a Treatment Rehab

    Unless one has been arrested for a drug-related crime and ordered to undergo treatment by a judge, there is virtually no way to force someone to enroll in rehab. The decision must be made by the addict. Sometimes, this may require intervention by a family member or a mental health professional, because in most cases, the addict is not prepared to give up their addiction.

    Once intervention has been successful, it is important to explore the full range of treatment options and features, including:

    • Residential vs. outpatient treatment
    • Drug detox services
    • Faith-based vs. secular programs
    • Individual vs. group therapy
    • Gender-specific treatment
    • Substance-specific rehabilitation
    • Behavioral modification
    • Post-treatment counseling and support

    Because each individual's situation is different, a treatment program must usually be designed for a specific case in order to have long-term results.

    Relapse and Community

    It is not unusual for a recovering alcoholic or addict to backslide. Sometimes, this is temporary; recovery is an ongoing process for most. However, an 2006 article in the journal Addiction reports that recovering addicts who have strong family relationships and a social support network are the least likely to relapse after completing a treatment program.
