Alcohol and Drug Treatment

At Transitions Recovery, drug treatment and alcoholism treatment address the holistic well-being of each patient. Individually tailored programs draw from the medical, psychological, therapeutic, and self-help fields with the goal of helping the patient achieve and sustain long-term sobriety, free from substance abuse.Components that may be included in an individual’s drug or alcoholism treatment program are determined on an ongoing basis according to comprehensive evaluations that take place at admissions and continuously throughout drug treatment.

  • Disease and recovery education through lectures and meetings.
  • Participation in 12-Step programs.
  • Relapse prevention groups.
  • One-on-one drug treatment counseling.
  • Group therapy and counseling.
  • Gender-specific groups.
  • Specialized dual diagnosis evaluation and treatment.
  • Specialty therapy or groups for specific areas of concern and dual diagnosis treatment: eating disordersdepressionanxietysexual addiction, and trauma and abuse.
  • The Family Program provides an opportunity for family members to participate in the drug treatment process.
  • Introduction to community resources.
  • Legal system advocacy when needed.

Reality-Based Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center

Patients begin the journey to freedom from substance abuse in the care of the highly skilled staff at our North Miami Beach, Florida, drug rehab center.While a resident in our Extended Care Program, patients are responsible for the day-to-day tasks of a normal living routine – including grocery shopping, cooking, and maintaining the cleanliness of living quarters, all monitored by drug treatment center staff. Combined with effective drug treatment and alcohol abuse treatment, an emphasis on reality-based tasks aids patients in successful reentry to daily life after exiting the drug and alcoholism treatment center.

Drug Treatment Continuing Care

Patients receive extensive attention to continuing care throughout the drug treatment process to prevent relapse and support the patient in staying sober. It is crucial that the patient grasp the importance of integrating 12-Step meetings and lifetime continuing care for continued recovery in all aspects of life: family relationships, spirituality, social, medical, physical fitness and nutrition, vocational and educational, financial, and also legal areas in many cases.The 12 Steps and the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous have been effectively adopted by many self-help organizations, and these steps and principles play a large part in the recovery process at Transitions Recovery.

The 12 Steps (Adapted from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous)

  1. We admitted we were powerless over ****—that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understood Him.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

The 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous

  1. Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon AA unity.
  2. For our group purpose, there is but one ultimate authority—a loving God, as He may express Himself in our group conscience.
  3. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
  4. The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.
  5. Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or AA as a whole.
  6. Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
  7. An AA group ought never endorse, finance, or lend the AA name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property, and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.
  8. Every AA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
  9. Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers.
  10. AA, as such, ought never be organized, but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.
  11. Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence, the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.
  12. Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, and films.
  13. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.

Drug treatment continuing care support groups both at our Florida drug treatment center and external groups play an important role in overcoming substance abuse and dual diagnosis.
