Treatment At First Step of Sarasota - Crisis Stabilization Unit

Conditions Treated

24-Hour Clinical Care:

At certain points in the recovery process, it's important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is a health problem where drinking takes control over a person's life. It affects how their brain thinks and acts, leading to strong desires to drink, bad feelings, sudden actions, and discomfort when not drinking. To help someone with this problem, there are treatments like detox, counseling, group support, and learning coping methods. While treatment can't completely cure the urge to drink, it helps people regain control of their lives and feel better overall.

Mental health treatment:

Mental health treatment involves various therapies and support services provided by licensed professionals to address mental health issues. These interventions, which can include therapy, medication, and holistic approaches, aim to enhance well-being, improve coping, and empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives. It's personalized, comprehensive care for mental health challenges.

Substance use treatment:

Substance use rehabilitation is a comprehensive treatment approach designed to assist individuals struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol. This form of rehabilitation addresses both the physical dependency, often starting with detoxification, and the psychological triggers, using various therapeutic methods. The objective is to empower individuals to achieve and maintain sobriety, while equipping them with the tools and coping strategies needed to reintegrate into society and lead a substance-free life.

Co-occurring Disorders:

Dual-diagnosis rehabilitation centers usually offer the most suitable approach for addressing concurrent mental health and substance abuse conditions. Within these facilities, a team of medical and behavioral professionals is typically assembled, employing diverse interventions and cultivating an optimal therapeutic environment to enable you to attain and maintain lasting recovery. The treatment regimen often encompasses evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, complemented by recovery support gatherings, 12-step program facilitation, skills development, and group therapy.

Levels Of Care

Hospital inpatient/24-hour hospital inpatient:

During specific phases of the recovery journey, it becomes crucial to have around-the-clock support. 24-hour clinical care provides a secure setting for individuals to heal from drug or alcohol addiction, with the reassurance that medical detox and other treatments will be administered by skilled professionals.

Treatment Modalities

Integrated Mental and Substance Use Disorder treatment:

Integrated Mental and Substance Use Disorder treatment is a comprehensive approach to treating individuals with both mental health and substance use disorders. It aims to address both conditions simultaneously through a coordinated and integrated approach. The goal is to improve overall well-being and reduce the risk of relapse.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth Therapy is a remote care option that allows individuals to access mental health services via digital technology, such as secure video conferencing. This mode enables patients to engage with therapists from their homes, offering flexibility and overcoming geographical limitations. Ideal for those in rural areas, with mobility issues, or tight schedules, Telehealth Therapy ensures quality mental health support is always within reach.

Abnormal involuntary movement scale:

The AIMS is a tool with 12 criteria clinicians use to evaluate the intensity of dyskinesias, especially in facial, limb, and torso movements, in patients on neuroleptic drugs. It also examines the overall impact, the degree of disability caused, and how conscious and distressed the patient is about these movements. The AIMS is widely utilized in research studies of antipsychotic drugs to check for tardive dyskinesia. Its straightforward structure and quick assessment process make regular clinical checks by professionals or other qualified individuals convenient.

Holistic Treatment:

Holistic treatment in a rehab center encompasses a comprehensive approach to recovery, addressing an individual's physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. Rather than focusing solely on the symptoms of addiction, this method seeks to treat the underlying causes and imbalances that contribute to substance abuse. Incorporating a variety of therapies, such as meditation, yoga, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling, holistic treatment aims to heal the whole person, ensuring a well-rounded and sustainable recovery journey.
