Tampa Drug Rehab
Being a Tampa area resident can be filled with times of sun and fun, while other times we find ourselves weathering the storms, both internally and externally. In an area where drinking alcohol and partying with drugs are used to escape for vacation and life, we understand how hard it is to reach out for help.
Statistics in Tampa
According to the Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association, Florida has one of the nation's highest rate of drug overdose deaths in the country. In a 2017 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC), Florida was ranked one of the top three states for drug-related overdose mortalities, with over 5,000 deaths in 2017 alone.
The epidemic in our state seems to be continuing to rise. This is why it is important to get help with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.
What happens when I go to a treatment facility?
Upon entering drug and alcohol rehab treatment in the Tampa area, you will most likely need to detox from the substances that you have been using, whether that is drugs, alcohol, or both. Drugs can be defined as either illegal street drugs or prescription medication.
Substance abuse rehab centers throughout Tampa have different stages and levels of treatment. These can range from detox inpatient, residential, and/or outpatient settings. Taking into account several variables that include the length of use, age, type of substances used, and a variety of other factors, you may find that your level will change depending on your individual needs.
When entering inpatient treatment, you will be assigned a therapist and be monitored by a staff 24/7, as well a seeing a medical doctor. Once the MD has given clearance for your health, you will be able to participate fully in all activities and therapies treatment has to offer to begin healing and recovery. If you find yourself in need of for a period of a few days to possibly a week or more, you will be closely monitored for your well- being in order to make you as comfortable as possible. Many people find that they can attend groups and therapy during detox.
What's different with us
Unlike the myriad of other Tampa area rehabs and drug treatment centers, Spring Gardens Recovery has a holistic approach to treatment. Located on four and a half acres of beautiful property just north of Tampa, we do not just offer your standard 12-Step model, cookie cutter treatment. We base our treatment on a combination of 12 step, refuge recovery, and other treatment modalities. Our focus is on actively treating what we call the "wellness triad" of the mind, body, and spirit through a concentration on healing through relaxation, meditation, yoga, experiential therapies (including pet therapy), visualization along with traditional medical treatment in the detox phase.
We offer programs for detox, intensive inpatient, two- week stabilization, and short term residential. These programs include individual and group holistic treatment therapies, along with several types of ancillary treatments.
What exactly does Spring Gardens Recovery use for holistic treatment?
Holistic care means taking into account the whole person instead of the specific symptoms of a disease, which is why we carefully consider what is going on with you as an individual when you step through the doors of Spring Gardens Recovery- physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Don't get me wrong, we know other traditional treatment centers focus on these things too, it's that we go about it a little differently.
Getting to the source of the problem underneath drug and alcohol addiction is what we are about, and our uniquely trained treatment team will take a complete assessment of you upon arrival.
Here at Spring Gardens Recovery just outside of the Tampa area, we integrate interventions such as yoga, meditation, guided visualization, massage, acupuncture, mindfulness and more. Along with substance abuse education and clinical therapy, we feel that by destressing the mind and body, you will be able to feel better while receiving treatment.
Our therapies and services are offered in a beautiful, upscale, and tranquil atmosphere—conducive to the holistic healing process. We provide amenities including a sauna, chefs, private televisions and more.
How does relaxation help keep me sober?
Relaxation helps soothe your mind and calm your soul. Our brains are seeking a dopamine response, to feel better. Taking substances help release a large amount of dopamine, setting us up to want more, and subsequently creating a tolerance. People who have built a tolerance to substances eventually end up having an addiction.
Your brain is composed of several parts, one being the amygdala where there are connections to flight and fight receptors. Often with people suffering from addictions, that part of their brain is overactive. It can cause a scattered thought process, make them feel that they are in reactionary mode all the time, have a higher sensitivity and mood swings, and can often run without having a second thought- causing relapse and/or risky behaviors. There is a higher amount of anger and fear in this area of the brain, and it also stores memories- which can cause triggers and associations that lead people to use.
With a holistic treatment approach, we believe calming the mind, lead to a less the risk to relapse.
Sometime people who go through Florida rehabs may find themselves relapsing within a matter of months, sometimes weeks or even days. We don't want you to spend all that time working hard getting clean and sober, just to turn around and go out again. By treating the underlying issues of alcohol and drug addiction and giving people the tools to transition into their lives with less stress and anxiety, we believe that holistic approach is ensures longevity and sustaining recovery.
