Elevations Health Florida Philosophy
Our program is designed to lower your level of care and increase your level of independence when you're ready. Your custom treatment plan will address your unique addiction history, physical and mental health, and personal goals for recovery. Your progress towards sustainable sobriety will determine how quickly you move through each phase. Clients spend as little as 30 days in our program or as long as six months. Wellington's programs and treatments are successful because our therapists are skilled at quickly developing a strong bond with our clients. The full continuum of care means that clients will continue the relationships they've had with staff from the moment they enter detox through sober living, and beyond
Areas of Specialization
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
Eating Disorder Treatment
Many mental health professionals view eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, along with other dysfunctional eating patterns) as a food addiction – in that food is used in ways other than as fuel or a source of pleasure. Some, but not all, addiction treatment programs include eating disorder treatment as part of the service menu. Also, an eating disorder may be a dual-diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder with drug or alcohol addiction.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
