Recent reports from the New York State Department of Health show there are over 1.9 million New York residents with a substance use disorder. Inpatient substance abuse treatment programs are great for somebody who’s having a hard time letting go of their substance abuse or behavioral addiction and who needs constant support and perhaps supervision to ensure a successful recovery.

If you want to get away from the hustle of the big city and enjoy your recovery while vacationing on the beach, consider an Inpatient Mental Health And Addiction Treatment Center in sunny Florida.

Life in a Residential Treatment Center

While you’re living in inpatient rehabilitation, you can expect three delicious meals a day, cozy living quarters with all the comforts of an upscale vacation suite and an immersive therapy program. Treatment life holistically incorporates the physical, mental and emotional spheres of healing from addiction while simultaneously connecting you with a community of like-minded individuals to learn from and grow with.

Whether you’re looking for an alcohol addiction treatment center or a treatment center to detox from opiates, your daily needs will be cared for to keep you comfortable during detox. Research shows that people who engage in therapies such as alcohol abuse support groups have a much higher chance of success when recovering from addiction than those who simply go cold turkey and don’t seek therapy or other supportive services.

Engaging Therapy Is the Key to Recovery Success

Look for a rehab that offers various therapies to engage your interest and curiosity to prevent your therapy efforts from going stale. For example, yoga therapy is a great way to incorporate mindfulness and physical health into your treatment, and it’s a practice that can help you maintain stability throughout your life when you might be tempted to turn back to your addiction. If you’ve never practiced yoga before with an experienced yogi, you’ll love learning and practicing in the warm sand with the help of our professionally trained yoga instructors.

At the Behavioral Health Centers of Florida, we use various evidence-based therapies in our inpatient treatment program, including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy in combination with regular talk therapy. There are also many support groups within the rehab center as well as in the community after you leave to help ensure long-lasting recovery from addiction.

Traveling to Another State for Rehab

You might have any number of reasons for wanting to travel for rehab, such as:

  • The need for privacy can be accommodated in a different location
  • You have vacation time saved up you want to take advantage of
  • You want a fresh start for your recovery with new, friendly faces and a clean social slate
  • You want the best rehab treatment center for your recovery and have heard that Florida is the leading rehab destination because of its top-tier facilities and therapies

When traveling from New York to Florida for rehab, make sure you have a clear vision of how long you’ll need to stay. It’s a good idea to create a long-term plan if you intend on going into short-term rehab, as you might decide during your stay that you want to extend it. If you want to attend rehab in a different state, your health insurance may cover your medical costs. Call Behavioral Health Centers at 844-791-1814 to verify your insurance and learn about your treatment options.

Co-Occurring Disorders:
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Disorders

Those dealing with the dual diagnosis of substance abuse disorder and mental health disorders face a special set of challenges in the road to recovery. Did you know that about half of people in New York with a mental health disorder turned to substances as a way to self-medicate? This is a lot of self-medication going on, as one in five adults struggles with a mental health condition, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.

Ultimately, studies show that over 17 million Americans suffer from both substance abuse and mental health issues. In New York State, with nearly 2 million people living with drug abuse, that means about a million people have co-occurring issues.

If you or a loved one is suffering from substance abuse and co-occurring mental health conditions, it may be best to travel from New York to Florida for addiction and mental health treatment services.

Barriers To Treating Mental Illnesses

People with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and any number of mental illnesses look for ways to treat their symptoms when prescription medications might fail to provide adequate relief. Furthermore, those who’ve sought out mental health services in the past may have had an adverse experience and are hesitant to reach out for services, instead turning to substances as a way to treat their symptoms.

Standard inpatient mental health centers in New York aren’t equipped to deal with the struggles of mental health disorders, and treatment providers aren’t trained to recognize symptoms that overlap with substance abuse disorder. Medication management in particular can be affected in the case of a dual diagnosis, with medication assisted treatment needing to be carefully cross-referenced by a well-educated treatment provider to ensure a safe and useful medication regime.

Immersive therapy such as equine therapy can also be transformative for those healing from co-occurring behavioral disorders. Behavioral Health Centers offers a range of therapy and treatment services including equine, neurobehavioral, fitness and nutrition therapy and all the traditional individual and group counseling you’d expect in a quality rehab program. Facilitated in a serene environment, you’ll be able to lean into your recovery without the struggle of your everyday worries back in the Big Apple.

If you can’t get the help you need right away, local support groups in our area like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are excellent ways to help you recover. You can also use these resources after completing an inpatient program.

Paying for Addiction Treatment Programs

Major insurance providers typically pay for medications needed during rehab, as well as certain therapies. Many private health insurance plans cover the cost of treatment in an inpatient rehab, but if yours doesn’t, you may need payment assistance like a sliding fee scale program.

For many people, worry over the cost of inpatient addiction and mental health treatment services prevents them from ever reaching out for help. However, a variety of options exist in New York State that can help pay for different treatment options for issues such as addiction without health insurance coverage.

For example, there are free rehab centers for low-income New Yorkers, as well as mobile medication programs and referrals to other outpatient services such as the Veterans Crisis Line and National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The New York Office of Addiction Services and Supports has a plethora of financial assistance programs to help those in need of behavioral health services.
