Types of drug rehabs in Miami mean their methods to treat drug and alcohol use disorders. There are numerous drug rehabs in Miami and alcohol rehabs in Miami. Some programs have overlapping processes, combining treatments to meet individual needs, such as the examples listed below.

Holistic Rehab

Holistic drug rehabs in Miami embrace the connection between the mind, body, and spirit and the division that addiction causes. The goal of holistic alcohol rehab in Miami is to reconnect the mind, body, and spirit through evidence-based practices, including:

Christian and Faith-Based Rehab

Christian beliefs or recognizing a Higher Power have helped many people recover from alcohol and drug use disorders. Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12 Steps use spirituality to help you surrender control over alcohol or drugs and take specific steps in building a relationship with your Higher Power.

Results of a recent review of studies show that 73% of treatment programs for substance misuse include a spiritual or religious component, with most studies finding a spiritual component is an essential factor in helping people heal.9

Luxury Rehabs

Consider a luxury drug rehab in Miami if you want more than the basics during your inpatient stay at a drug rehab in Miami or alcohol rehab in Miami. Some of you may think luxury means you’ll be spending time with celebrities on a private island and spending an enormous amount of money. Although those luxury alcohol rehabs in Miami exist, Miami has more affordable options.

Amenities at luxury drug rehabs in Miami may include:

Executive Rehabs

Executive drug rehabs in Miami cater to business professionals who need to continue working while receiving treatment services in drug rehab in Miami or alcohol rehab in Miami. CEOs, CFOs, and other top members of corporations often choose executive alcohol rehabs in Miami to spend part of their day fulfilling duties. In contrast, you spend the other part learning how to maintain recovery.

Executive drug rehabs in Miami provide you access to office space, technology for online or telephone conference calls, fax, computers, and anything else that will make working from rehab easier.

Dual Diagnosis Rehabs

Mental health disorders are present for many people who seek Miami drug rehabs for a substance use disorder. For some, addiction causes a mental health disorder. Others began misusing substances to self-medicate their mental illness. Having an addiction and mental health condition is known as co-occurring disorders or a dual diagnosis and requires specialized care.

Treating both disorders at the same time is essential. If one goes untreated, it could cause a relapse of the other. For example, if you have PTSD and an alcohol use disorder, treating only the alcohol use disorder means the next time you have PTSD symptoms, it could trigger a relapse.

Depression and Addiction

Depression is the most common mental health disorder associated with alcohol use disorders. Alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines are sedatives that lead to depression. Also, it is common for people with depression to try and self-medicate with alcohol and other substances, even depressants since at first they can make you feel good. 10

Over time, however, they only increase the effects of depression. Research shows peer support recovery groups, in combination with behavioral modification therapies, are the best way to treat co-occurring depression and addiction.10

Anxiety and Addiction

A national survey found out of the participants with a substance use disorder, 15% also had an anxiety disorder, not including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Researchers claim up to 43% of this number were receiving treatment.11

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a treatment for both anxiety and addiction. It is helpful with anxiety-specific treatments and pharmacotherapy for a substance use disorder and anti-anxiety medication for improved results.11

PTSD and Addiction

Post-traumatic stress disorder was found among 46% of people with a substance use disorder in a national epidemiologic survey. Still, it does not distinguish which one appeared first or caused the other. PTSD-specific treatments such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) or trauma-focused CBT are effective. They can be combined with medication-assisted therapy to address substance misuse.11

Bipolar Disorder and Addiction

General population studies show a high occurrence of bipolar disorder among those with a substance use disorder, up to 50% with bipolar I disorder. People with mania are more likely to misuse substances. Researchers also found people with bipolar disorder to have the second-highest number of substance use disorders. 12

Alcohol, stimulants, and marijuana were the most used substances among those with bipolar disorder. Psychotherapies, including CBT and family-focused therapies, combined with medications such as lithium can lead to positive outcomes.12

Personality Disorders and Addiction

Borderline and antisocial personality disorders are most commonly associated with substance use disorders. In those treated for substance use disorders, personality disorders exist in over half of those diagnosed. Dialectical-behavioral therapy seems to be the most effective treatment for co-occurring personality and substance use disorders.13

Types of Addiction Therapy Used in Rehab

Treating substance use disorders requires specific techniques and methods facilitated by a licensed treatment professional. Examples include the behavioral therapies below.14

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT teaches you to change negative thought patterns that lead to harmful behaviors. It is the most common type of therapy for co-occurring disorders.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

DBT is a form of CBT that utilizes mindfulness practices to help you be in the present and aware of what is going on internally and externally in the moment.

Motivational Enhancement Therapy

MET helps motivate you when you aren’t sure you are ready for Miami alcohol rehab or recovery. Your therapist helps you recognize and embrace reasons to enter and maintain recovery.

Contingency Management

Contingency management is a positive reinforcement technique that rewards you for reaching recovery milestones, such as 30 days sober or completing a treatment plan goal. Rewards can be money, vouchers, a sober celebration party, or something more personal.

Group Therapy

In Miami drug rehabs, individual and group therapies are essential. Group therapies provide extra support from peers and therapists. They also improve social skills and self-esteem and help you realize you are not alone. Sharing your story in groups helps other people in their recovery.

Family Therapy

The people closest to you in your life, your family, are part of your recovery process, just as they were a part of your addiction. The whole family must get on the same page so you can all be healthy moving forward.

Should I Travel to Miami for Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

In Miami, you can experience diverse cultural influences. The weather is perfect for trips to the beach to meditate or wade in the Atlantic Ocean. There are plenty of outdoor activities to help you relax and reconnect with nature. There are numerous Miami drug rehabs and Miami alcohol rehabs in Dade county.

Neighborhoods in Miami to Consider for Treatment

In South Florida, Coconut Grove is a neighborhood with multiple drug rehabs in Miami. It’s close to downtown but more laid back than the city. Boating activities, local restaurants, farmer’s markets, and manicured parks are great ways to transition into a sober lifestyle.

North Miami drug rehabs are about 10 miles north along the Biscayne Bay. There is no shortage of things to do and learn in the area, known for its parks and museums. With plenty of beaches, you can take relaxing walks one day and hit the art scene the next.

If picking strawberries and hanging out in the groves of tropical fruit trees is your idea of relaxation, the Redlands is a rural piece of Miami you must visit. It surrounds the entrance to the Everglades National Park.

Dining on cuisine by celebrity chefs or sitting on a bench looking out for celebrities can be done in South Beach. There’s more to it than glamour and glitz, however. You can view wildlife, tour the Art Deco district, take a food tasting tour, or learn salsa dancing. Having so many healthy distractions can be good during early recovery.

Alcohol and Drug Laws in Miami

The Marchman Act, Florida Statute Chapter397, allows loved ones of a person with a substance use disorder to petition the courts for an involuntary evaluation and treatment of one who has refused Miami alcohol rehab or Miami drug rehab but is in danger of hurting themselves or someone else. Because a person is incapacitated to make decisions due to substance misuse, others can request on their behalf.15
