Art Therapy Helps Treat Drug Addiction, Prevents Relapse

Many people know it’s much easier to get sober than it is to stay sober, which is why Futures of Palm Beach teaches its patients techniques while they’re in treatment that will help them after they leave the center. Located in South Florida, Futures of Palm Beach provides addiction treatment services for anyone in Florida, including cities like Jacksonville, who are struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Through treatment methods like dual diagnosis and art therapy, you’ll be provided with the foundation you need to not only get sober, but also stay sober over the long term.

Why Art Therapy?

When you begin addiction treatment and learn to understand the disease of addiction, you’ll discover that drugs or alcohol are only a symptom of the overall issue. Most people suffering from the disease of addiction have a problem with living. Whether you’re dealing with issues like anxiety, depression or PTSD, drugs or alcohol (or both) provided you with a safety net at one point in time, but they eventually became the primary source of the problem. Art therapy is one of the many methods that Futures of Palm Beach uses to help clients learn how to deal with thoughts, emotions and feelings in a much healthier way. There are many different types of art therapy, which is what makes art therapy so helpful. Art therapy can be anything from dance and drama to music and drumming, or some people discover they like expressing themselves in different ways. Creative writing can be an excellent form of art therapy because it allows you to write poems or stories that help you discuss issues you’ve been experiencing in a different way. Journaling is always a big part of the recovery process, so it’s always good to begin writing as a form of art therapy while you’re in treatment. Troubling thoughts and emotions are much easier to deal with when they are put down on paper.

Futures of Palm Beach Accepts PPO Insurance

One of the most difficult aspects of deciding to go to treatment is thinking about the costs associated with your stay, but your insurance can help you make your treatment much more affordable. Futures of Palm Beach works with a wide range of insurance companies like Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, ValueOptions and many more. This is very beneficial because Futures of Palm Beach provides a full-service treatment facility, so you can get all of the care and support you need at one location. When you have insurance, you won’t have to worry about any medications you’ll be taking when you enter the program and begin at the detox level of care. Even if you decide to go through holistic detox, medications may be used to help regulate your heart rate and your blood pressure. For those doing a medical detox, your insurance will help cover the expenses of detox medications like Subutex, which are used to help minimize the symptoms of withdrawal.

Before you leave the center, Futures of Palm Beach will provide you with a strong aftercare plan that will give you different options for continuing your sobriety once you leave treatment.
