Drug Rehab In Florida
Drug Treatment in a Luxury Environment
When an individual pictures themselves or a loved one in drug treatment, they tend to picture something similar to a dormitory in a college or university. Much of drug rehab takes place in a setting such as that, but there are some facilities that make it a point to create a luxury drug addiction rehab and a luxury alcohol addiction rehab. There are many wonderful and effective amenities found within luxury rehab treatment. These include different available treatments, private accommodations, smaller and more personal resident-to-staff ratio, individualized attention, and aftercare services. Choosing a top quality rehab center is a tough process. Make sure to take a look at the luxury rehab options at different treatment facilities like Ambrosia Treatment Center, which has a wonderful luxury treatment program.
At Ambrosia, state-of-the-art treatment programs are offered. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a big option, which many other treatment facilities offer as well. This option is set on a 16-week schedule that uses self-assessments and individual and group therapy to treat the patients problems with drug abuse and/or drug addiction. There are also alternative treatments that are often only offered in luxury rehab. These include non-traditional or “new age” treatments, which are often holistic, such as acupuncture, massage, yoga, meditation, pilates, and art and music therapy. Learning these alternative methods have been proven to show a lower rate of drug relapses when compared to traditional therapies.
Also, luxury rehab treatment provides many comfortable and private amenities that would not be found in traditional treatment. Being comfortable when receiving treatments can make all the difference. Luxury treatment centers, such as Ambrosia Treatment Center, are located in a serene and secluded area that allows for an escape from the daily hustle and bustle of the city and the individual’s life. This offers a strong contribution to the refuge that the addict may be seeking from his or her addiction. Another way to seek refuge is through exercise. In a luxury facility, there are gyms, tracks, tennis courts, and other helpful and encouraging amenities.
One of the most important aspects of treatment is receiving the attention that you need while working through the recovery process. At a luxury facility, there is a smaller resident-to-staff ration, which allows for specialized, individualized attention and care. The staff is available 24 hours of each day of the week, because the patient is needing care 24 hours a day, every day of the week. Thanks to this care, the staff will be able to discover the underlying causes of addiction and be able to individually diagnose each individual with his or her own issue. No addiction is the same, and so no addiction should be treated by exactly the same means as another.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for addiction. Treatment and recovery last a lifetime, but it is a lifetime that is better appreciated and better spent. After treatment, a patient may feel that they need extra help upon entering the “real world,” especially at times when they feel down or upset. For this, Ambrosia and other treatment facilities offer aftercare treatment plans that allow for the patient to attend individual therapy and group therapy whenever they feel the need.
Recovery from drugs and alcohol
The Ambrosia Treatment Centers provide rehabilitation services for drug addiction, alcoholism, and co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders (dual diagnosis).
Drug addiction is a complex illness characterized by intense and, at times, uncontrollable drug craving, along with compulsive drug seeking and use that persist even in the face of devastating consequences. While the path to drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs, over time a person’s ability to choose not to do so becomes compromised, and seeking and consuming the drug becomes compulsive.
This behavior results largely from the effects of prolonged drug exposure on brain functioning. Addiction is a brain disease that affects multiple brain circuits, including those involved in reward and motivation, learning and memory, and inhibitory control over behavior.
Scientific research shows that treatment can help patients addicted to drugs stop using, avoid relapse, and successfully recover their lives. Based on this research, key principles have emerged that should form the basis of any effective treatment programs:
Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior. No single treatment is appropriate for everyone. Treatment needs to be readily available. Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse. Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical. Counseling—individual and/or group—and other behavioral therapies are the most commonly used forms of drug abuse treatment. Medications are an important element of treatment for many patients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies. An individual’s treatment and services plan must be assessed continually and modified as necessary to ensure that it meets his or her changing needs. Many drug–addicted individuals also have other mental disorders. Medically assisted detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long–term drug abuse. Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective. Drug use during treatment must be monitored continuously, as lapses during treatment do occur. Treatment programs should assess patients for the presence of HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases as well as provide targeted risk–reduction counseling to help patients modify or change behaviors that place them at risk of contracting or spreading infectious diseases.
For addiction treatment in a rehab setting, The Ambrosia Treatment Centers are second to none. We are private facilities located in both Port St. Lucie and Singer Island, Florida. Our staff is one of the most experienced in South Florida with over one hundred years experience in just the primary treatment staff.

The Physical And Psychological Treatment of Alcoholism
Addiction or alcoholism has a two-fold nature, physical and psychological dependency. The physical nature is usually treated in a detoxification facility where very little psychological treatment is administered. Usually patients are physically “sick” from withdrawal symptoms and are unable or less tolerant of participating in intense therapy. Ambrosia works with many detox facilities to provide the psychological part of treatment, after a patient has been detoxed.
The Ambrosia Treatment Centers teach the client new methods of interacting in a drug-free environment. Our program encourages the addicted person to not only stop using drugs and alcohol, but to examine and change these self destructive behavior patterns. We at Ambrosia understand that “recovery” is a process, not an event. We believe that addiction is a three-fold disease, physical, psychological, and spiritual. All three parts of the addicted person need to be treated in order for total sobriety to be achieved. Simply providing “talk therapy” while helpful, is not conducive to total recovery. We at Ambrosia use a variety of modalities in order to heal this three-fold disease:
What Are the Signs Of Drug Addiction?
Signs of drug abuse are not always easy to identify. Just as the physical and psychological addiction is different for each person, signs that that person may have a drug abuse problem will also be different. You know yourself best. If you feel out of control or unable to live your life the way you want to, you may want to examine your personal habits, especially in the context of which drug use occurs.
The term drug abuse is most often and accurately defined as the compulsive need to have and use any type of drug for any reason. If an individual has tried time and time again to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol, chances are he or she has a drug abuse problem. There are many signs of drug abuse, and individual suffering from these diseases have to take a step back and consider what they are doing and what their options are.
At the Ambrosia Treatment Centers, there are a wide variety of treatment programs available – each one designed for a specific need and tailored to fit each individual problem. Ambrosia Treatment Center offers a comfortable and respectful place for suffering drug and alcohol addicts to be treated. Medical professionals are there to assist each patient around the clock. They will assess each person and treat them based on the individual diagnosis that they will be given. Ambrosia Treatment Center stresses the importance of an individual diagnosis since each individual has a specific way of handling his or her problems.
Primary Care Treatment For Drug Addiction
The word “primary” means first or the highest ranking. Therefore, “Primary Care Treatment” means drug treatment of the highest priority. Our primary treatment program features various modalities of therapy so that the addicted person can be set free from their particular malady. Some of the highlights of Primary Care Treatment that The Ambrosia Treatment Centers offer is:
* Highest Standards of a Drug Rehab & Addiction Treatment * Spiritual Groups

Treatment is a process that should not have negative associations of confinement or restrictions of free will. Counselors can not force addicted people get well. Alcohol and drug rehabilitation is not easy. Addicted people come to us with impaired judgment and awareness. With the support and knowledge gained through our counselors and our leading edge alcohol and drug rehabilitation program, an addict’s power and ability to overcome their addiction increases. They begin to understand that they alone are responsible for their recovery and ultimately to prevent a return to addicted behavior. But this almost always involves considerable despair, frustration, and anguish along the way. The individual learns they must re-define themselves and their goals to prevent relapse when they are back in the environment that the addiction developed or festered.
Permanent recovery requires getting to the cause of the addiction and treating it at its roots, a task that takes an incredible amount of skill and patience, the kind we have at Ambrosia Treatment Center. Our counselors and other addiction treatment team members take into account a number of factors unique to each client; reasons for using, age, culture, gender, specific issues, etc., enabling us to prepare an individualized drug treatment plan. This individual care greatly benefits the client making long-term recovery a realistic goal.
