Wellington Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facilities

Addiction concerns in Wellington, Florida are much like the rest of the country. No one is immune.

Palm Beach County, the Florida district where Wellington is located, recognizes alcohol abuse, heroin addiction, and general drug addiction as some of the key health issues impacting the county.1 Heroin deaths have been on the rise, with 165 heroin-related fatalities in Palm Beach County in 2015. Heroin-related deaths in Florida increased by about 80% from 2014 to 2015.2

Recovering from drug or alcohol addiction will take time. It’s important to avoid getting frustrated with yourself or to place extremely high expectations on the amount of time that it takes for you to heal. Depending on your individual needs, the severity of your addiction, your mental health condition, and various other factors, you may spend 30, 60, 90 days or longer in treatment.

During rehab, patients will receive several different types of treatment modalities designed to provide them with a comprehensive approach to addiction recovery. These may include:

  • Individual and group counseling.
  • Support group participation, including 12-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
  • Exercise programs and other wellness activities.
  • Family counseling and therapy.
  • Drug education classes.

Only a professional can determine which activities become part of the patient’s treatment plan. Each treatment plan is developed specifically for the patient during the assessment and intake process. As you progress through rehab and your goals, health, or needs change, so will your treatment plan.

Although no two treatment plans or programs are the same, most inpatient programs include:

  • Early wake up and time for morning breakfast.
  • A daily meeting that takes place with a group and is moderated by a counselor or therapist.
  • Free time that allows for self-reflection, meditation, or the completion of homework that is assigned in therapy.
  • Afternoon therapy sessions and other scheduled activities before dinner.
  • Evening mealtime and a period of relaxation followed by a routine lights out schedule.

Sojourn House

Rigid schedule . Too far from home to be able to visit regularly on the scheduled visit days once a week. Son was court ordered to go to Sojourn House for treatment. We were pleased with the staff there. Things were explained to us well.

Pine Manor Inc - Chemical Dependency Services

I don't discredit the facility entirely, I just disagree with some views and the way some things are presented. Their employees see m to care for those being treated and many have overcome addictions as well. I do feel, however, that the patients in the faculty should be helped to feel in control of their lives. Less like powerless victims of their chosen substances, and more like wise beings in control of their bodies and their urges/addictions. I know it's not an easy thing to overcome by any means, but I also knowthat my father came out of the facility with a handful of excuses for the things he'd done, the reasons for his addictions, and its result it had on our family and other loved ones. He learned that it was not his fault that he turned to drugs and alcohol to begin with, that he kept going back to them orr that he just couldn't quit. He believed that the only reason he became who he was, was because of the childhood he had. The very things he described as leading to his addictions are the very same things he afflicted onto me, without the added events of a parent or relative abusing (sexually, mentally, and verbally) him. These factors were brought up in a family treatment session, where the counselor had him apologize to me, but explain that his actions were not his fault, but his addiction's fault. But I begged the counselor to answer that if the events of his childhood made him powerless to addiction, and I had the same events and more unfold, an addictive personality and access to the same drugs and alcohol my father was addicted to and had offered me, then how was I not as powerless to them when I was not only weak, but they had been forced upon me? I know it's a long ramble, but in short, the facility was very quick to help my father release him from his guilt and tell him "relapse is going to happen, and that's ok, because it isn't your fault. You're addiction controls you and there is little you can do about it but believe in god."

Browse Wellington Recovery Facilities Wellington, Florida gives its young people a host of advantages, such as the opportunity to enjoy equestrian activities and sparkling beaches. But teens who grow up in this prosperous Palm Beach County city also face their share of hazards, like the temptation to binge drink, smoke marijuana and experiment with opioid prescription drugs.

The Palm Beach Post reports that police have cracked down on drug dealing in local high schools, as evidenced by the recent arrest of a group of seven high school students who were dealing marijuana to their peers.

Advice on Seeking a Treatment Service

Why is it so important for teenagers who abuse drugs or alcohol to get treatment for chemical dependence? In the past, it was widely believed that the resilience of the adolescent brain protected young people who used drugs from suffering any serious cognitive damage. But recent clinical research has revealed that substance abuse in the teenage years may have long-term consequences on an adolescent's future mental function.

How Does Substance Abuse Affect the Adolescent Brain?

Cocaine, marijuana, alcohol and other drugs may have a more severe impact on the adolescent brain than scientists once realized. In a 2010 press release, the Society for Neuroscience pointed out that teens are especially vulnerable to the effects of substance abuse:

  • The adolescent brain is only 80 percent developed, making teenagers susceptible to the effects of drugs.
  • Teenagers respond more intensely to smaller amounts of cocaine than adults.
  • Amphetamine abuse in adolescents can have a long-term affect on a teen's ability to make decisions and remember.
  • Binge drinking in teens can affect an adolescent's ability to cope effectively with stressful situations.
