In-House Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Pompano Beach, Florida
Pompano does have in-house drug and alcohol rehab centers, as described earlier on this page. Unfortunately, the quiet town of Pompano has had to tolerate an influx of poor quality in-house drug and alcohol rehab programs, run more for profit than for therapeutic success in treating addiction.
What is the alternative to these store front rehabs that over promise and under deliver? One possibility is to travel, far away to a high quality rehab program.
The ideal situation would be to find a rehab program that also provides a full range of medically assisted treatment protocols, along with high level psychotherapy. Therapy should be administered by a doctor of psychology or a psychiatrist, not a certified drug counselor, whose sole qualifications is a personal history of addiction.
For medical therapy, patients who are addicted to opioids should be offered treatment with buprenorphine or naltrexone. Naltrexone is available in monthly injections or long-term, six month implants. Buprenorphine is also available in monthly shots, such as the Sublocade shot or Brixadi shot.
For patients addicted to alcohol, they should be offered treatment with medications such as naltrexone, and other alcohol treatment medications, as recommended by the Canadian Alcohol Use Disorder Society, or the C3 Foundation. There is a rehab in North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, that offers treatment with The Sinclair Method.
After in-house rehab, patients should be encouraged, and arrangements made, for ongoing medical treatment and therapy. Long-term treatment works best, and should be supported by the in-house rehabilitation program.
Another possibility is outpatient, concierge medical treatment, where a concierge physician works in conjunction with a psychologist or therapist. Please call Dr. Leeds for more information on concierge addiction treatment options.
