Alcohol & Drug Rehab in Florida

There’s nothing wrong with a social drink every once in a while. However, for some individuals, drinking has taken over their lives. Alcoholism is a very serious disease, that threatens every aspect of one’s life. If you or your loved one need help with their drinking, then please contact Oasis Rehab Center today.


What Causes Alcoholism & Drug Abuse?

It is estimated that approximately 75% of the population drink alcohol. Of these individuals, approximately 10% will develop serious problems related to their drinking. These problems can be related to their health, finances, career, family, or any other aspect of one’s life. Why is it that some people can drink, yet they do not struggle with this disease?

The exact cause of alcoholism is unknown, but it’s believed that there’s a genetic component. Although your family history doesn’t dictate your future, it does increase your risk of being dependent on alcohol. There are also many other factors, which include psychiatric conditions (depression, schizophrenia, anxiety disorder, etc.), social isolation, poverty, and more.

With any substance of abuse, addicts tend to continue using because of their strong dependency. Discontinuing alcohol consumption can be very dangerous, due to potentially fatal withdrawal symptoms. If you are ready to work towards long-term sobriety, it’s highly recommended that you contact Oasis.  We have locations in several cities across the state of Florida.


Detoxing From Alcohol & Drugs

After you admit that you need help, detoxing will be the first step towards sobriety. Detoxing simply means you’re eliminating all of the toxins in your body, allowing your body to be absent of alcohol. When detoxing, substance abuse users experience symptoms of withdrawal. These vary in terms of severity, but include increased heart rate, tremors, sweating, vomiting, increased blood pressure, anxiety, chills, and more.

Before modern medicinal practices were introduced, as many as 33% of individuals died from alcohol withdrawal. This is a very serious condition, which requires medically supervised professionals. These professionals can monitor you every step of the way, ensuring that you’re safe and comfortable.

In order to avoid detox complications, please contact us today! Seek out treatment facilities that offer medically supervised detox programs. It’s unsafe to try and detox without the proper support. Not only is detoxing from alcohol dangerous, but you increase your chances of relapse when you’re not in a supportive, controlled environment.


Treating Alcoholism: Effective Therapy Methods

When you enter an alcohol treatment program, you will be provided with the tools and resources you need to succeed. With the help of professionals, you can begin to take control of your life. You can maintain sobriety, as you establish new, healthier habits and routines.

Accessing counseling is at the heart of any alcohol treatment program. Individual counseling sessions allow individuals to explore the root causes of their addiction, while learning new, healthy habits.

There’s also group therapy, which allows peers to share their experiences. Although these sessions are highly reliant on the clients, they’re supervised by a qualified psychologist or counselor.

Psychotherapy services is a common method, especially regarding addiction. Some of the most common therapy options include cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and emotive behavioral therapy. These help clients treat their addiction, as well as any underlying causes.

Since mental health conditions are often associated with addiction, it’s important to choose a treatment facility that offers this type of support. It’s believed that as many as 65% of alcoholics, drink due to a co-current disorder (i.e. PTSD, depression, or anxiety). It’s also vital that the facility you choose, takes a personalized approach. No two addicts are the same, meaning their treatment plans should not be the same.

More and more rehab facilities in Florida and throughout the United States, are offering a holistic approach. There are more alternative therapies than ever, helping clients focus on their addiction through various methods. Yoga, meditation, massage, and mindfulness; are all alternative methods that clients can now access.


Recreational and nutritional therapies are also growing in popularity and use. These promote one’s well-being, while focusing on the mind, body, and soul. It’s important for individuals to have a positive experience. This is why many facilities offer outdoor activities, incorporating more positive choices.
