When you are searching for a drug treatment center for a loved one, you want to know that the place you choose is a reputable, trustworthy drug and alcohol rehab center. You want the best for someone you care about. So what determines if a treatment center is right for your loved one?
There is a Solution is not a treatment center, but a free treatment referral service. Our goal is to help men and women find lasting recovery by finding them the proper type of rehab program for their needs. One of the advantages of working with a treatment referral service is that with one phone call, you can learn about a number of different facilities throughout Florida. We are also able to help you determine what type of facility is right for you. For example, some people may only require outpatient treatment. Their addiction may not have progressed to the point where a higher level of care is necessary. However, depending on what, how much and how often a person was using, some may need medication and medical care to assist them through the detox process. People who tried to get sober multiple times before may benefit from a long term program or a combination of residential and outpatient treatment. There are also a number of different types of programs—holistic, expressive, faith-based, equestrian etc. What may work for one person may not work for another. That is why we get to know each of our clients first to get an understanding of what type of treatment would be most effective in helping them overcome their addiction.
Another advantage is that we remain in touch with our clients throughout their stay in treatment. We are able to receive honest, valuable feedback about their treatment experience and take that into consideration when recommending a place to you. The question we always ask ourselves is “If my spouse or child or parent needed to attend rehab, would I send them to this facility?” We understand how important your family is and that all you want for them is to be free from their addiction. We do our best to see family come together and heal as a whole.

Methamphetamine is classified as a stimulant that affects the central nervous system. It can be snorted, smoked or injected. Meth is extremely addictive in nature and many users report being hooked after their first hit. While once a problem that was localized to rural and southwestern regions of the U.S., meth addiction is spreading across the country, tearing apart families and ruining lives.
The dangers and consequences of meth addiction include:
- Loss of judgment and increased likelihood of participating in risky—and life-threatening—behaviors
- Impaired ability to heal from infection
- Meth mouth—the teeth begin to rot and fall out as a result of the numerous cavities caused by the drying out of the salivary glands
- Sores (which are often made worse by constant picking)
- The destruction of tissue and blood vessels combined with the loss of the skin’s elasticity as a result of chronic meth use causes the user to look years older than they actually are
- Inability to sleep (which in turn increases the paranoia that many meth addicts experience)
- Increased heart rate and blood pressure
- Violent and aggressive behavior
- Increased temperature (which in extreme cases can cause brain damage)
- Liver damage
One of the most startling effects of meth addiction is its potential to cause permanent damage to the brain’s dopamine receptors. The “high” produced by meth is caused by a flood of dopamine in the brain. Prolonged use can cause irreversible damage to the brain’s ability to experience pleasure. This is one of the reasons why early intervention is so crucial. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), recent research has found that one of the most effective treatments for meth addiction is cognitive behavioral therapy.
