Fort Myers Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Drug abuse is rampant in Fort Myers, Florida, as well as much of the rest of the state. Many addictive drugs exist, both prescription and illicit, that can cause serious consequences, like overdose and death.

Like people across the United States, the residents of Fort Myers struggle with opioid abuse. Between January and June of 2017, 47 morphine-related deaths and 17 heroin-related deaths occurred in Fort Myers. Overdose and death can be prevented by seeking treatment for your addiction so that you can obtain and maintain sobriety.

The process of rehabilitation can be much more difficult if the person you are trying to help does not want to work toward recovery. Nonetheless, treatment should always be considered, because the consequences of lack of treatment can be even worse than dealing with someone reluctant to get help.

But what if your loved one won’t go into treatment easily? You can’t force an adult into addiction treatment, but you can have a professional interventionist hold an intervention to encourage your loved one to get the help they need to recover from drug or alcohol abuse. In other cases, if the addicted individual has committed a crime, the court can mandate that they enroll in a rehab program to get sober.2 Unfortunately, this is sometimes the only way an individual will attend a recovery program, as many individuals avoid seeking treatment because they do not believe that they have a problem.

It can often be difficult for people with an addiction to quit using on their own—a process made all the more difficult due to certain changes that occur in the brain as a result of chronic substance abuse.3 Rehab can help people struggling with compulsive drug use to rectify maladaptive behaviors and replace them with healthy coping mechanisms. You can find Fort Myers rehab centers, as well as other programs in other states, in our directory. Remember, it is always possible to get better, and with treatment, it is much easier too.

Patel Ranjan PSY.D- MFT

Been doing telemedicine with her for a while, and due to finances, I wanted very short term therapy and though I tried to pin her down on how many sessions I'd need, she refused to give me that, which looking back, I understand. Lucky for me, I was in and out in eight visits, which my work covered partially. I was initially on the fence about seeing her because of her fee (she's more expensive than the other therapist I checked with), but I went with my gut because when I talked to her over the phone, she not only took her time and spent as long as I needed, for free, but she actively told me that she encouraged me to reach out to other therapists so I wouldn't haveI've to pay more than I'm comfortable with, she gave me some referrals. But I decided to see her and it's been worth it; she gives assignments and structure because I asked for it, and also talked to my psychiatrist, which helped me feel like I have a team.

Pine Manor Inc - Chemical Dependency Services

I don't discredit the facility entirely, I just disagree with some views and the way some things are presented. Their employees see m to care for those being treated and many have overcome addictions as well. I do feel, however, that the patients in the faculty should be helped to feel in control of their lives. Less like powerless victims of their chosen substances, and more like wise beings in control of their bodies and their urges/addictions. I know it's not an easy thing to overcome by any means, but I also knowthat my father came out of the facility with a handful of excuses for the things he'd done, the reasons for his addictions, and its result it had on our family and other loved ones. He learned that it was not his fault that he turned to drugs and alcohol to begin with, that he kept going back to them orr that he just couldn't quit. He believed that the only reason he became who he was, was because of the childhood he had. The very things he described as leading to his addictions are the very same things he afflicted onto me, without the added events of a parent or relative abusing (sexually, mentally, and verbally) him. These factors were brought up in a family treatment session, where the counselor had him apologize to me, but explain that his actions were not his fault, but his addiction's fault. But I begged the counselor to answer that if the events of his childhood made him powerless to addiction, and I had the same events and more unfold, an addictive personality and access to the same drugs and alcohol my father was addicted to and had offered me, then how was I not as powerless to them when I was not only weak, but they had been forced upon me? I know it's a long ramble, but in short, the facility was very quick to help my father release him from his guilt and tell him "relapse is going to happen, and that's ok, because it isn't your fault. You're addiction controls you and there is little you can do about it but believe in god."
