Port Saint Lucie Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs

Port St. Lucie, Florida, of St. Lucie County has unfortunately been hit hard by drug abuse, just like other cities in the Sunshine State and beyond. While it can be devastating to realize that a person you love is abusing drugs, help is available at Port St. Lucie rehab centers.

Drug use can cause serious consequences, one of the most severe being the possible transmission of diseases, like HIV and hepatitis C, through the sharing of needles. According to the St. Lucie County Police Department, the number of inmates with hepatitis C increased 850% from October 2013 to July 2015.1 Because many individuals who become addicted to illicit drugs end up in prison, there’s a strong possibility that a number of these HIV and hepatitis cases could have resulted from substance abuse.2

Regardless of the type of substance you’re abusing, there are major physical and mental health risks involved, such as:3

  • Medical issues, like heart palpitations, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, overdose, and death.
  • More chronic health conditions, like transmittable diseases, cancer, lung disease, and heart disease.
  • Mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, and psychosis.

It is also common for a person to struggle with financial problems, relationship problems, loss of employment, expulsion from school, loss of custody, and more. But regardless of the harmful effects you experience, it’s never too late to get help and turn your life around. An addiction treatment program in Port St. Lucie drug or nearby can help you get clean and sober.

Clinical Program Manager/Primary Therapist Recovery Institute of Ohio

My name is Jessica Kitchin and I am currently the Clinical Program Manager/Primary Therapist at Recovery Institute of Ohio. In August of 2018, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Addiction Counseling. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. Obtaining these degrees and progressing in my life was always part of my plan as a child; however, when I started drinking regularly by the age of 12 and using drugs at the age of 16, I didn’t think my life was going to end up the way it has. Even though I attended college for education, I found myself drinking and heavily using drugs, until I dropped out with one semester left. My addiction completely controlled my life.

An Examination of Port Saint Lucie Rehabilitation Clinics
Port Saint Lucie residents have experienced more than their share of stress in recent years with the collapse of the local housing market and the rise in foreclosures. When financial problems strike the entire community, Port Saint Lucie drug rehab centers see an increase in admissions. Stress is one of the most common contributing factors to a drug or alcohol relapse.

If you’re in danger of losing your home, getting a divorce or losing custody of a child, Florida addiction professionals can teach you how to avoid a stress-related relapse.

A Guide to Being Admitted Into a Recovery Program

After the initial detoxification process and the first few weeks of recovery, sobriety may seem easy compared to the physical and emotional pain of drug addiction or alcoholism. But the real test lies in the months and years ahead as you face the traumatic events that can make sobriety so difficult.

According to the Journal of Clinical Investigation, the sensations you experience from drugs when you’re under stress may be more intense and rewarding — a phenomenon that encourages recovering addicts to turn to heroin, cocaine or alcohol when times get tough.

In a Port Saint Lucie treatment center, you’ll learn new coping skills to help you deal with stress in sobriety. This aspect of recovery may be one of the biggest factors in protecting you against a relapse. After you’re discharged, it’s essential to keep up your participation in individual therapy, self-help support groups and community activities that support your new sobriety. As part of the re-integration process, you’ll have counseling on how to handle high-stress situations in the “real world.”

Stress Reduction Strategies in Recovery

Recovery doesn’t make stressful situations go away; in fact, you may be even more aware of life’s stressors when you’re clean and sober. How can you protect your sobriety and avoid a relapse? Here are a few of the most popular strategies:

  • Join a support group that meets at least once a week.
  • Practice stress reduction techniques like meditation or music therapy.
  • Develop a healthy exercise routine with your doctor’s approval.
  • Engage in hobbies that you enjoy and make these a priority in your life.

Comparing Recovery Services in Port Saint Lucie

Port Saint Lucie drug treatment centers aren’t a refuge from reality, but they provide an environment that’s removed from some of the stressful factors of daily life. When you get back out into the world of work, family obligations and financial struggles, you’ll need the support of addiction professionals more than ever.

Our specialists can help you find lasting connections with therapists and facilities in Florida.
