Gainesville Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facilities

There are many residents in Gainesville, Florida that struggle with drug and alcohol abuse and could benefit from entering a professional addiction treatment program.

Just over 20% of adults in Alachua County drink excessively, according to data from 2016.1 In the same year, 28.3% of driving deaths in Alachua County involved an alcohol-impaired driver.1

With alcohol and some other types of drug addiction, your first step should be medical detox. This helps you get through withdrawal in a safe and supportive setting. After that, look into a Gainesville drug rehab center to help you replace your drug use with positive behaviors.

Rehab can include both behavioral therapies and medications. Along with these treatments, one important thing you’ll need to do is set goals. This will give you motivation to continue when you get frustrated. Some of the goals you should consider for yourself include:2

  • Finding new hobbies to keep yourself entertained.
  • Getting a new job or entering a vocational program so you can learn useful skills.
  • Spending more time with your loved ones and repairing your damaged relationships.
  • If necessary, completing any parole requirements so you can leave the past behind you.

You don’t have to accomplish these goals all at once. Instead, it’s better to break them down into small, achievable steps. For example, if you haven’t spoken to your parents in a year, don’t expect to heal your relationship in a day. Work up to it by calling them on the phone, writing them a letter, and then meeting in person. You could also attend family therapy together to receive help from a counselor who specializes in relationship dynamics.

Keep in mind that a Gainesville drug rehab program isn’t your only option. There are also plenty of out-of-state facilities that offer an excellent chance to start over. See what facilities might meet your needs by browsing our directory today.

Getting sober from Laudanum, Methamphetamine, alcohol or other substances you or your loved one is addicted to takes an individualized treatment schedule. Two options of substance addiction treatment clinics in Gainesville can help you succeed: either Residential or Outpatient Rehab. Residential therapy offers long term gains with longer stays in an excellent rehab program. From-home plans may be more convenient to you, but lack the soundness and resources of one-month programs to get free from drugs. Ultimately, the decision is your own, and we are here to help you pick the best fit.

Patients seeking help from a Gainesville drug treatment program are in need of recovery from a number of different drugs, including prescription painkillers like OxyContin, alcohol, cocaine, synthetic drugs like "Molly," marijuana, heroin and others. In fact, Florida in general has a high rate of drug trafficking throughout the state which means that residents have access to just about every drug there is. Reports of drug abuse, "pill mills" and high rates of substance abuse are all over the news as a result.

But when does drug abuse evolve into a drug addiction that requires treatment? It's not always easy to tell. Everyone is different, but some signs include:

  • General feeling of illness or malaise
  • The development of depression in between bouts of drug or alcohol use
  • Legal problems due to actions under the influence or otherwise related to drugs
  • Losing a job, a friendship, a relationship, custody, or any opportunities of any kind because of your abuse of drugs or alcohol

If you experience any of these things and are still unable to control your drug use or drinking, it's time to seek professional treatment at a comprehensive drug rehabilitation program.
