Sanford, FL Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Addiction is a growing problem that impacts the lives of millions of people. Sanford residents are not immune from the risks associated with substance abuse and addiction.

Unfortunately, opioid-related deaths have steadily been on the rise since 1999, with the highest rates in 2015 occurring among individuals between the ages of 25 and 39.1 Florida is no exception to the nation-wide opioid epidemic, with 952 heroin-related deaths and 1,390 fentanyl-related fatalities occurring in the state in 2016.2 Further, drugs or alcohol were detected in nearly 12,000 deaths in Florida that same year.3

If you struggle with a substance addiction, it’s important to realize that you do not have to cope on your own. Although it may seem like an overwhelming task to find rehab treatment in or near Sanford, understanding what your needs are can assist you during your search.

For example, are you addicted to alcohol or a sedative, like Xanax or Ativan? If so, you may want to enter a medical detox program before enrolling in rehab. The amount of time spent in medical detox will depend on the severity of the withdrawal symptoms, the specific substance of abuse, and the underlying health of the patient. People spend anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks in medical detox before transitioning to inpatient rehab.

Rehab centers provide 30, 60, or 90-days of treatment for most patients. Some require long-term, extended care and will spend upwards of 6-months or more in a recovery setting. During rehab, the treatment team will create an individualized treatment plan for you that will consist of several different types of interventions, such as:

  • Individual therapy.
  • Group counseling.
  • Family therapy.
  • 12-step meetings.
  • Medication, if applicable.
  • Aftercare planning.

Before you choose a treatment center, consider Central Florida rehab programs as well as those outside the area, if you wish to travel for treatment. Many people benefit from a program outside their hometown since it allows them to separate themselves from their previous using environment and focus on healing. Our directory features centers throughout Florida and the rest of the United States, so finding a program that’s right for you is just a few clicks away.
