Like many other cities in the U.S., Port Orange, Florida faces its share of problems with drug and alcohol abuse. Located in the county that ranks 15th in the state for drug poisoning deaths (Volusia), Port Orange residents may be looking for answers on how to deal with addiction.1
Those struggling with addiction can find help by getting into treatment, where they can rectify maladaptive behaviors and replace them with healthy coping skills. Depending on your addiction, treatment may begin with detoxification—the process of your body eliminating all toxins. Withdrawal can be an uncomfortable and, with some substances, even dangerous experience, so detoxing in a detox center under medical supervision can keep you safe.
Once you have finished detox, entering an inpatient or outpatient treatment center can help you to begin the process of addressing the issues that contributed to your substance abuse. Behavioral therapies can help create lasting change by teaching you coping strategies, sober social skills, drug-refusal skills, emotional regulation, impulse control, and more.
Therapies used to treat substance use disorders include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy.
- Motivational enhancement therapy.
- Contingency management.
- Multidimensional family therapy.
