After leaving a medical detox center, recovering addicts transition into drug addiction residential treatment. Residential treatment is often the preferred substance abuse treatment program for those who suffer from mild to severe drug abuse and are in the early stages of sobriety. Individuals in a residential treatment program live at a luxury rehab center where they receive continued care that fuels their recovery journey. A luxury drug and alcohol rehabilitation center provides a welcoming and healing environment where individuals can better understand the root causes of their addiction, learn to cope with their emotions, and improve their overall wellbeing.
Are You Suffering from Drug Addiction?
The signs of drug addiction range from mild to severe, depending on what drug you use and how frequently you use it. These are some of the most common warning signs of drug abuse:
- You experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking a particular drug
- Even when you’re not taking the drug, you spend a lot of time thinking about it
- Your performance at work and school has declined since you started using
- A significant amount of your income goes towards your drug habit
- You have to hide the drugs from your partner, friends, and family
- Your sleeping and eating habits have changed after you started using
- Drug usage has begun to change your physical appearance, such as your weight
The Dangers of Drug Addiction
Drug addiction comes with numerous risks – both psychological and physical. The most obvious danger of drug addiction is death caused by overdosing, which has increased significantly year over year. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, overdose deaths increased from approximately 19,000 in 1999 to over 70,000 in 2019. Synthetic opioids make up the most significant percentage of overdose deaths, followed by psychostimulants, such as methamphetamine. No matter your drug of choice, there’s always an underlying risk of chronic conditions or death. Some of the most significant dangers of drug abuse include:
- Anxiety and Paranoia
- Psychotic behavior
- Brain damage
- Infectious diseases, such as HIV
- Memory loss
- Impulsive behavior

The First Step to Recovery: Admitting That You’re an Addict
The first and perhaps the most challenging part of recovery is admitting that you’re an addict. Individuals know that once they admit they’re addicted to drugs, the next step is to enter one of various substance abuse detox programs. However, the drugs have changed their brain’s natural balance, increasing “feel-good” neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters often produce the “high” feeling you get after taking drugs. Because neurotransmitters such as dopamine create a euphoric feeling, addicts have a challenging time taking the first steps to part ways with drugs.
Drug Addiction Residential Treatment at United Recovery Project
Since many of us at United Recovery Project are recovering addicts, we know that sobriety is a lifelong endeavor and not something that happens overnight. We have a comprehensive selection of drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs that accommodate virtually all backgrounds and lifestyles. Whether you’re struggling with fentanyl or cocaine addition, our team of licensed professionals is excited to see you blossom as you put substance abuse behind you.
The first step of recovery is drug detox – the process of flushing your body of toxins accumulated throughout your addiction. Depending on your severity, detox could last anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks. You’ll experience withdrawal symptoms as you break away from your addiction and your brain begins to adjust. Our priority is to help you ease your withdrawal symptoms and provide the tailored care you deserve at our detox center.
Residential Drug Rehab
Clients in our residential drug rehab stay at our sunny South Florida rehabilitation center. During the first week of residential rehab, individuals meet with our psychiatrist to create a customized treatment plan that serves as the foundation of their recovery journey. Afterward, clients become fully immersed in our healing individual and group therapy sessions, weekend activities, and 12 step programs. Clients can destress with regular yoga sessions and acupuncture while enjoying three gourmet meals per day.
We know that everyone manages emotions and heals differently, and thus, we strive to offer a robust selection of drug addiction therapy, including:
- Equine therapy
- Art therapy
- Music therapy
- Motivational therapy
- Nutrition therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
- Life skills training
After drug addiction residential treatment, many clients transition into a sober living home as part of the next step of the recovery journey. A sober living home is an excellent option for those who need extra time and support before returning to the “post-rehab” world. At URP, we have two gender-specific luxurious sober living homes with resort-style pools and premium amenities. Residents live independently but must adhere to stand ground rules to maintain a safe and substance-free environment. We’re also proud to maintain an open-door policy. If you ever feel on the verge of relapse, you’re welcome to return to our sober living home.
