Is There Counseling During Alcohol Rehabilitation?

There is usually counseling during alcohol rehabilitation. Counseling during alcohol rehabilitation is absolutely essential to the recovery process. The ability to recover has to do with going back to roots and causes and counseling helps with this. If there is no counseling during alcohol rehabilitation it may still work but this a process which needs to include the therapeutic along with the holistic. Counseling is one of the roots of any good alcohol rehabilitation. Everything else during alcohol rehab should be built around the idea of therapeutic counseling.

A good treatment center knows how imperative counseling during alcohol rehabilitation can be to each individual client. Most addicts and alcoholics before they come into treatment have a lot of undealt with trauma they may have experienced that began their using or happened during their using. Therefore getting to the root of the drug and alcohol use through counseling will help any client to attain lifetime sobriety.

Not only will counseling help with the matter of drug and alcohol abuse, it will also help with learning how to live to the fullest. No longer will fears of the present and a past full of struggle hold any person back. Counseling during alcohol rehabilitation helps with learning how to stay in the present moment. Not only is there individual counseling during alcohol rehabilitation there is also group counseling during alcohol rehabilitation.

Group counseling allows a client to see that they usually aren’t alone in any of their past issues and through their peers help them learn how to cope and deal with things that are going on. It is also paramount to an individual’s recovery to start identifying with the people around them and to begin taking suggestions from people who may have been in a similar situation as themselves. Group counseling during alcohol rehabilitation starts this process. It also allows a client a safe space to talk with other people and being openly discussing their fears, their traumas, and their emotions. This essentially begins the healing process. As soon as you start talking about issues you can begin to become aware, and then take action to change your life. This is what recovery is about. Taking the action to help heal yourself.

If you or someone you know needs counseling during alcohol rehabiliation please do not hesitate to call 877-711-HOPE(4673) or go to www.palmpartners.com to find a solution.

No one has to live with addiction and alcoholism forever. There is a solution and it starts with picking up the phone.

When is The Right Time to Go to Addiction Treatment?

December 29th, 2011

The right time to go to addiction treatment is right now. Not a week from now, not a day from now, RIGHT NOW. Now this may sound extreme but it is true and it is fact. Some people make a decision to go to addiction treatment and dont make it there the next day because of their drug use and alcohol consumption, they may even die before they get a chance to go to addiction treatment.

So the right time to go to addiction treatment is as soon as you find out where you are going. The disease of alcoholism and addiction is cunning, baffling, and powerful. The disease doesn’t care how long you wait, it doesnt know the difference but you do.  If you are suffering or someone you know is suffering from the disease of alcoholism or addiction please dont hesitate when it comes to your or your loved one’s addiction treatment. It is absolutely essential to go treatment ASAP.

As addicts and alcoholics, the want to feel better and get off drugs and alcohol is sometimes fleeting. They may be ready for treatment right now, but wait until tomorrow and they might not feel that way anymore. Alcoholics and addicts are about instant gratification so if the drugs and alcohol aren’t working anymore they immediately want another solution and that is the right time to go to addiction treatment. If there is a waiting period during that time they may decide that going to addiction treatment is not a quick enough solution and the negative effects of their using seem worth it, or are almost forgotten completely. There is no right time to go to addiction treatment other than when you are ready to go.

Dont wait for a “right” time to go to addiction treatment. Utilize it if it is available to you. Dont take it for granted, its a blessing in disguise. It can change your life.

If you or someone you know is suffering from alcoholism or addiction dont wait for the right time to go to addiction treatment please call now: 877-711-HOPE(4673) or go to www.palmpartners.com

 

How Can I Tell if Someone is Addicted to Drugs and Needs Help?

How Can I Tell if Someone is Addicted to Drugs and Needs Help?

By: Rhea Rosier, Palm Partners Recovery Center

Usually if you have been living with a person addicted to drugs you know what it looks like and you know what it feels like. Sometimes though if the person using is more adept they are able to hide the signs a bit better. If you want to know for sure how to tell if someone is addicted to drugs and needs help here are some basic guidelines  and things you can look for.

Common signs and symptoms of drug abuse

  • You’re neglecting your responsibilities at school, work, or home (e.g. flunking classes, skipping work, neglecting your children) because of your drug use.
  • You’re using drugs under dangerous conditions or taking risks while high, such as driving while on drugs, using dirty needles, or having unprotected sex.
  • Your drug use is getting you into legal trouble, such as arrests for disorderly conduct, driving under the influence, or stealing to support a drug habit.
  • Your drug use is causing problems in your relationships, such as fights with your partner or family members, an unhappy boss, or the loss of old friends.

Common signs and symptoms of someone addicted to drugs.

“You’ve built up a drug tolerance. You need to use more of the drug to experience the same effects you used to attain with smaller amounts.”

  • You take drugs to avoid or relieve withdrawal symptoms. If you go too long without drugs, you experience symptoms such as nausea, restlessness, insomnia, depression, sweating, shaking, and anxiety.
  • You’ve lost control over your drug use. You often do drugs or use more than you planned, even though you told yourself you wouldn’t. You may want to stop using, but you feel powerless.
  • Your life revolves around drug use. You spend a lot of time using and thinking about drugs, figuring out how to get them, and recovering from the drug’s effects.
  • You’ve abandoned activities you used to enjoy,such as hobbies, sports, and socializing, because of your drug use.
  • You continue to use drugs, despite knowing it’s hurting you. It’s causing major problems in your life—blackouts, infections, mood swings, depression, paranoia—but you use anyway

 

Drug abusers often try to conceal their symptoms and downplay their problem. If you’re worried that a friend or family member might be addicted to drugs and needs help, look for the following warning signs:

Physical warning signs of drug abuse

  • Bloodshot eyes, pupils larger or smaller than usual.
  • Changes in appetite or sleep patterns. Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
  • Deterioration of physical appearance, personal grooming habits.
  • Unusual smells on breath, body, or clothing.
  • Tremors, slurred speech, or impaired coordination.

Behavioral signs of drug abuse

  • Drop in attendance and performance at work or school.
  • Unexplained need for money or financial problems. May borrow or steal to get it.
  • Engaging in secretive or suspicious behaviors.
  • Sudden change in friends, favorite hangouts, and hobbies.
  • Frequently getting into trouble (fights, accidents, illegal activities).

Psychological warning signs of drug addiction

“Unexplained change in personality or attitude.”

  • Sudden mood swings, irritability, or angry outbursts.
  • Periods of unusual hyperactivity, agitation, or giddiness.
  • Lack of motivation; appears lethargic or “spaced out.”
  • Appears fearful, anxious, or paranoid, with no reason

If your loved one is in need of addiction treatment, please give us a call at 800-951-6135.

 

 

What is a Relapse? And Should I Go Back to Treatment if I Have One?

What is a Relapse? And Should I Go Back to Treatment if I Have One?

By: Rhea Rosier, Palm Partners Recovery Center

December 27th, 2011

In recovery there is always a chance for what is called a relapse. A relapse in recovery means that a person has been clean or has stopped using drugs and alcohol for a certain amount of time and then begins drinking or using again.  Relapses are scary and are one of the hardest things to deal with and face within recovery. Relapses are filled with guilt and shame. Alot of the times the person who begins using drugs or alcohol again doesn’t know why it has happened. Even someone who really wanted to stay sober can relapse and at the end up be hitting their head against the wall, saying over and over again, “why?, why?, why?”. This is a reality for anyone with the disease of alcoholism or addiction. Relapse doesn’t have to be a part of anyone’s journey getting sober but it can happen and it is always best to know what to do if it does.

The main thing to do if you or your loved one relapses is to get them straight back into treatment. Going back to treatment if you or your loved one has a relapse may seem counter productive or even futile in the light that they just went to treatment and now have begun  using again. The reason you or your loved one should once again attend treatment is because when a relapse happens it is unknown when that person will stop. Relapses are scary in the sense that it’s during this time overdoses are more likely to happen and with progression of this disease relapses always get worse never better.

Going back to treatment if a relapse happens is not only the safest option but it is also the smartest option. Recovery is a journey and just because a relapse happens doesn’t mean a person will never get the gift of a lifetime of sobriety. So it would make sense to never give up on the option of learning something you may have missed at treatment the first time. Going back to treatment after a relapse is something many addicts and alcoholics do. Sometimes these addicts and alcoholics who go back to treatment after a relapse end up getting it and stay sober for the rest of their life. We never know what the journey of recovery may hold and for some people it holds one or more relapses.

If you or someone you know has relapsed and needs to go back to treatment please dont hesitate to call: 877-711-HOPE(4673) or go to www.palmpartners.com

 

Are There Any Guarantees for Success With Drug Rehab in Florida?

Are There Any Guarantees for Success With Drug Rehab in Florida?

By: Rhea Rosier, Palm Partners Recovery Center

There is one actual guarantee for success with drug rehab in Florida and it is actually at Palm Partners. They have a guarantee that you can stay sober for a lifetime if you complete certain steps throughout their program and afterwards. Now this is a written and very verbalized guarantee for success with drug rehab in Florida but you can make your own guarantee based on the guidelines and suggestions given to you through out treatment and a 12-step program of some sort. I am going to be frank, I know this because it is what worked for me.

Rarely do people fail in achieving a recovered state from using drugs and alcohol if they have enough willingness, honesty and openmindedness. These three things are ingredients  and quite honestly the guarantee for success with drug rehab in Florida.  Coming into any drug rehab in Florida with an attitude that you want sobriety can give you a much higher chance of success while battling a disease that is progressive, chronic and fatal. Unfortunately it is hard to put a gurantee for success with drug rehab in Florida when you are up against the disease of alcoholism and addiction. Luckily there is a place where someone who is suffering can go to at least attempt to change their life and this is where it begins. An attempt to change can start anyone into the gurantee they will find success with drug rehab in Florida. If there is no attempt there is absolutely no guarantee that a person will stay sober.

Sobriety as I know it takes action, open mindedness, and a willingness to change. Thats what the guarantee is that you can change your life and that change can last a lifetime if you put the footwork in.
