The out-patient alcohol addiction treatment specialists at Jax Med and Rehab provide patients with customized treatment programs tailored specifically for their unique needs while allowing for their privacy and the convenience of an out-patient treatment program that will not disrupt their daily activities or work schedule.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment

While each patient is treated based on their own personal requirements, our programs share common elements and forms of treatment. Initially, each patient will be examined by a licensed medical doctor and meet with a substance abuse counselor who will establish a customized treatment protocol based on the patient’s health, type of addiction and level of addiction. After carefully considering the patient’s condition, a treatment program will be established, and the process of detoxification and recovery can begin right away.

Our main goal in treating alcohol addiction is to help our patients understand that their addiction is a primary, progressive disease, and not the result any weaknesses or dysfunction on their part. A supportive staff and professional counselors work with patients through physical therapy, private counseling, family counseling and group therapy all designed to provide a caring therapeutic environment where patients explore their issues and offer support to others as they explore theirs. Through treatment and in counseling discussions patients begin to understand and learn about the dangers of a self-defeating attitude, how to better cope with life’s stresses and the rewards of accomplishment and problem solving without alcohol.

Private Counseling is a private discussion between you and one of our addiction specialists. It is an opportunity for you to discuss privately the issues in your life that may have contributed to your addiction and ask any questions that you may wondering about along the road to full recovery. You will also learn about ways to deal with the people and events in your life in a positive way without the need for drugs or alcohol.
Group Counseling is a time when you and your peers who are also progressing through drug addiction treatment and recovery meet in small groups to openly discuss your struggles and successes in battling addiction. You will offer your support for others and others will show support for you. Group Counseling is a positive conversation that typically reveals that you are not alone, and provides you with ideas and information about recovery from your peers. Group counseling is also conducted and guided by an addiction specialist.
Your family and loved ones care deeply for you and want to help you in any way they can. Family counseling allows you and your family members to meet with addiction specialists and family counselors who help address issues within your family and to share ways for your family to support your efforts to fully recover and stay drug and alcohol free.

Medical Detox

Medical Detoxification is closely monitored by our doctors and involves the use of prescription medications that help patients with severe addictions withdraw and detoxify more comfortably. Medical Detoxification is NOT for every patient suffering with alcohol addiction and is only prescribed when medically necessary to control severe symptoms of detoxification and withdrawal.

There are a number of different medications designed to reduce the withdrawal symptoms associated with alcohol detoxification. Your doctor will decide if any of these medications are appropriate. Again, most patients do not need medical detox, but for those who might or do, our medical staff is licensed and very experienced in medically treating the symptoms of alcohol detoxification.
