We understand that addiction is a disease, and just like other diseases, we can’t fight this battle on our own. We’re with you on this journey every step of the way from:
Detox – We work with several physicians that may prescribe medication to ease the withdraw symptoms. For opiate dependency patients we can assist with Suboxone, Zubsolve and Vivitrol
Education and Awareness – Understanding that addicts are born with a predisposition to abusing substances when self medicating, we educate our patients and their families to understand the biochemical makeup of the addict, thus taking some of the concern off the patient that ” there is something wrong with me”
Intensive One on One Therapy – Depending on your initial evaluation, you and your therapist will come up with a treatment plan based around you (the individual) and not the “book”. We firmly believe that every patient is unique and the most important aspect of your recovery is getting and staying sober. Not necessarily the way you do it. All of our treatment plans are based on the patients needs, biopsychosocial evaluation and what did or did not work in the past. We have patients that see us only once per week, while others we see every day of the week and in some cases twice per day. The important thing to understand is that you are not alone!
Group Therapy -We offer small intimate groups (no more than 8) that discuss our individual battles with drugs and alcohol and how it has negatively affected our life’s. We also discuss how to prevent this from happening in the future and the best way for us to make amends for the people we’ve hurt through our behavior while using.
Underlining Issue – Almost always with substance abuse cases, there is an underlining reason as to why we drink or use in the first place. Often times it is to escape the mental pain we are suffering from depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, assault, PTSD and so on. While we are working on your sobriety, you and your therapist are discovering the rout cause of why you are masking your pain with drugs and or alcohol in the first place. By dealing with that, this is your best chance for permanent sobriety and happiness.
Relapse Prevention – Once you’re sober and have maintained your sobriety for some time, you are fully equipped with the necessary tools to indemnify triggers and ways to avoid them. Also, once your a patient of WSCU Mental Health services of Central Florida, you are always a patient,and we are here to help you for life and you’re never alone.
