Boca Raton’s Preferred Synthetic Marijuana Addiction Treatment Center

One of the more disturbing drug-related developments in recent years has been the increased abuse of synthetic marijuana. Though an unfortunate number of people hold the mistaken belief that synthetic marijuana is a safe substance, the truth is that abusing this addictive substance puts people at risk for a variety of negative physical and psychological effects.

Perhaps even more disconcerting is the fact that the relative newness of this drug means that researchers have not had the opportunity to study and document the long-term impact that can result from either limited or chronic synthetic marijuana abuse. What experts do know is that, contrary to what misleading marketing campaigns may suggest, synthetic marijuana is far from harmless.

At Wellness Resource Center, our treatment professionals have decades of combined experience helping people overcome the compulsion to abuse synthetic marijuana and other addictive substances. With an emphasis on developing personalized treatment plans that provide comprehensive solutions to each client’s unique challenges, Wellness Resource Center is a rehab center where individuals in crisis can escape the downward spiral of addiction and begin walking the path of long-term recovery.

Helping a Loved One

Helping a Loved One or Family Member Enter Synthetic Marijuana Abuse Rehab

Discovering that a loved one has developed a substance use disorder can be a distressing and disconcerting experience. When your loved one’s problem involves a relatively new drug like synthetic marijuana, your fears can be compounded by confusion and misinformation. These reactions are perfectly understandable, but they should not derail your efforts to make a positive difference in your loved one’s life. Please consider the following:

  • Get the facts. A significant amount of misleading information has been generated regarding the safety of synthetic marijuana. Look to reputable sources such as the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) or the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to get the truth.
  • Research rehab centers. Discover the types of treatment that have helped others who had struggled with synthetic marijuana abuse, and look into specific rehab centers that may offer the type and level of treatment that is best suited to your loved one’s needs.
  • Learn how to discuss your concerns with your loved one. Having a conversation about a loved one’s substance abuse can be an intimidating proposition, but it does not have to turn into a conflict. Educate yourself about how best to broach this subject in a manner that will minimize conflict and maximize the potential for positive solutions.
  • Offer both moral and practical support. Your loved one needs to know that you believe in him or her, and that you support his or her efforts. But your loved one is also likely to need practical help with matters such as making appointments, arranging for transportation, and other logistics. Make sure your actions match your words.
  • Manage your expectations. Overcoming an addiction is a long-term process that often requires extended professional assistance. Do not expect quick results, and do not be discouraged by the setbacks that will occur along the way.

Ultimately, the best thing you can do for your loved one is to keep doing what you have been doing. Continue to educate yourself about pertinent matters, retain an active positive presence in his or her life, and remain positive and supportive.  The road to recovery can be a rocky one at times, but your presence will help smooth out some of the bumps along the way.

Why Consider Us?

Why Consider Synthetic Marijuana Abuse Treatment at Wellness Resource Center in Boca Raton, FL

When looking for synthetic marijuana addiction treatment, you or your loved one may have been searching broadly for “rehab centers near me?” In Boca Raton, FL, there is one clear choice. The abuse of synthetic marijuana abuse can have a significant negative impact on the mind and the body. The physical risks of synthetic marijuana abuse include hypertension, irregular heart rate, breathing problems, and seizures. The psychological ramifications may include anxiety, hallucinations, and psychosis. Making matters even worse, experts cannot predict what will happen years or decades down the road, as they have not yet been able to study the long-term effects. Of course, the impact on a person’s mind and body is just part of the damage that can be inflicted by synthetic marijuana abuse. When people become compelled to abuse a substance such as synthetic marijuana, they are likely to experience additional problems in school, at work, or within the context of their personal relationships. Chronic substance abuse is associated with academic failure, diminished performance on the job, family discord, job loss, financial ruin, legal problems, and a host of related negative outcomes.

Types of Treatment

Types of Synthetic Marijuana Abuse Treatment Offered at Wellness Resource Center

At Wellness Resource Center, we are committed to ensuring that each person who chooses to heal with us receives the type and level of care that will best prepare him or her to achieve long-term recovery from synthetic marijuana abuse and any co-occurring conditions. Our client-focused integrative approach to rehab places a premium on providing comprehensive care that is customized to meet the unique physical, emotional, and psychological needs of each client.

Understanding that intensive, daylong treatment is just one step on the path of lifelong recovery, we work closely with each client to set short-term and long-term recovery goals, and then develop detailed plans for rehab that will help them to achieve these objectives.

Rehab at our treatment center is a personalized, holistic experience that features a range of rehab activities and therapeutic interventions, each of which is provided by experienced and compassionate treatment professionals whose skills are surpassed only by their dedication to treating each client with dignity and respect.

During Phase I treatment, which is also referred to as the partial hospitalization program (PHP), clients participate in treatment-related activities Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and benefit from round-the-clock supervision seven days a week. During this time, clients will reside in the housing provided on our campus, which is staff-supported 24/7. Depending upon each client’s goals, strengths, and needs, his or her treatment at Wellness Resource Center may include many of the following elements:

Medication management: Clients whose synthetic marijuana abuse or addiction is accompanied by a co-occurring mental health condition or conditions may benefit from the inclusion of psychotropic medications within their treatment plans. The incorporation of medication into a client’s treatment regimen will be determined by a psychiatrist based upon a personal review of his or her case. Clients whose treatment includes medication management will meet with a psychiatrist at least once each week throughout his or her time in rehab. Also, the program nurse, the client’s primary therapist, and attending behavioral health technicians will all be available to assist with medication monitoring.

Individual therapy: Individual therapy and effective therapist-client relationships are essential components of rehab at Wellness Resource Center. All clients participate in individual therapy sessions with their primary therapist a minimum of one time each week, with additional sessions scheduled when clinically appropriate. These one-on-one sessions are ideal opportunities for clients to discuss their progress, process successes or setbacks, and address any concerns that they may have about any aspect of their rehab experience.

Group therapy: Group therapy is the fundamental element of rehab at Wellness Resource Center, with clients participating in multiple groups each day, Monday through Friday.  Among the more common groups offered at Wellness Resource Center are psychoeducational groups, gender-specific groups, process groups, age-specific groups, and experiential groups. Some of the many topics that will be addressed during these sessions may include the following:

  • Body image
  • Goal-setting
  • Relapse prevention
  • Coping skills
  • Trauma

Family therapy: At Wellness Resource Center, clients and their family members may schedule family therapy sessions with either the client’s primary therapist or with our clinical director on an as-needed basis. Family therapy commonly takes place on our campus in Boca Raton, FL. In addition to in-person family therapy sessions, additional options for keeping families connected during rehab and for helping family members access the support they need include phone calls, conference calls, and written communication.

Experiential therapy: Experiential therapies are included into rehab and are designed to provide clients with the opportunity to overcome challenges, express themselves artistically, interact with others, and otherwise engage in tangible experiences that emphasize holistic healing. The type and amount of experiential therapy that clients participate in at Wellness Resource Center varies depending upon their personalized treatment plans, and may include the following:

  • Adventure activities
  • Communication-based activities
  • Equine therapy (on an ancillary extra cost basis)
  • Labyrinth
  • Psychodrama
  • Social activities
  • Teamwork activities

Family Program: Because the devastation of synthetic marijuana abuse and addiction is rarely limited to the afflicted individual, we are proud to offer a Family Program every other month. This program features psychoeducation and process groups that are designed to help family members address their own needs as they prepare to support their loved one during the post-treatment phase of his or her recovery.

Clients who can benefit from step-down support after they have completed Phase I treatment for synthetic marijuana abuse and addiction at Wellness Resource Center may choose to enroll in Phase II care, which is an intensive outpatient program, or IOP. Phase II participants can attend part-time treatment and receive case management services while continuing to live in our client housing. After completing Phase II, clients who desire a transitional living environment with a semi-structured support system may choose to enroll in Phase III.

Among the many benefits of rehab at our center is that we provide a seamlessly integrated spectrum of extended care services, all of which are provided by the same highly qualified members of our treatment teams. With no maximum limit on length of stay at our rehab center, Wellness Resource Center makes it possible for each client to receive a consistent continuum of care that is designed and delivered with the sole purpose of preparing him or her to successfully pursue lifelong recovery.

I got hooked on synthetic marijuana after getting tired of traditional drugs. I let my addiction affect my relationships with my friends and family. Fortunately, the caring and compassionate staff at Wellness broke me free of my addiction!
