Melbourne Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facilities

The city of Melbourne, FL is plagued by substance abuse, just like many other cities across the country. Prescription drug abuse is of particular concern in that area. These medications are prescribed at high rates in Melbourne—with between 588 and 770 reported benzodiazepine prescriptions per 1,000 people in 2016.1

For every 1,000 people living in Brevard County, 649 were prescribed benzodiazepines in 2015.2 Alprazolam, which is frequently prescribed under the brand name Xanax, is the most common benzodiazepine dispensed to Florida residents and the third most commonly dispensed controlled substance altogether, behind hydrocodone and oxycodone.3

Benzodiazepines are prescribed to manage anxiety and panic disorder, but when people misuse or abuse these drugs, an addiction can develop. Once someone is addicted to a substance, it can be very difficult for them to quit on their own. They tend to use the drug in a compulsive pattern regardless of the negative consequences. Someone who is addicted to a benzodiazepine is likely to experience withdrawal symptoms when they abruptly discontinue use. Although rare, these withdrawal symptoms could be fatal due to potential seizures.4

Someone looking to quit abusing benzos should seek out a detox center or a rehab program that provides medical detox services as well. They can ensure your safety and comfort throughout the withdrawal process and help you achieve medical stability before beginning an addiction treatment program. Then a formal substance abuse treatment program can help you build relapse prevention and coping skills necessary to remain clean in the long run.

An Examination of Melbourne Treatment Centers
Melbourne drug rehab counselors can help you get to the root of your addiction and develop the skills you need to face life’s challenges. Nicknamed “the Harbor City,” the coastal city of Melbourne offers natural beauty and inner serenity to residents in search of recovery.

If you’re ready to seek help, our addiction treatment professionals can direct you to treatment facilities in Melbourne.

What to Know Before Entering a Rehab Program

The city of Melbourne is concerned about protecting its citizens from the effects of substance abuse and drug-related crime. In 2011, the Melbourne Police Department reported that drug arrests decreased by 9.8 percent over the previous year. But in private homes, many residents of Florida are still doing battle with alcohol, prescription painkillers, marijuana, heroin or cocaine. Getting the right type of treatment for the nature of your addiction is one of the keys to a successful rehabilitation.

Levels of Addiction Treatment in Florida

There are several levels of care you can choose from when you compare Melbourne drug treatment centers:

  • Day treatment/outpatient counseling
  • Intensive outpatient services
  • Hospital rehab programs
  • Residential recovery communities
  • Opioid treatment facilities/methadone clinics

Before you enter treatment, you should be thoroughly assessed by an addiction counselor, doctor or psychotherapist to see which level of care is best for you.

Benefits of Melbourne Rehab Centers

The Substance Abuse and Mental health treatment Administration (SAMSHA) reports that in 2008, there were a total of 80,971 admissions for substance abuse treatment in Florida. Yet thousands of residents continue to self-medicate with alcohol, prescription medications or street drugs without getting the help they need to find serenity. A structured rehabilitation program provides a safe, secure environment where you can focus on getting clean and sober.

At treatment centers throughout Brevard County, caregivers are ready to help you reach your recovery goals.
