Often, when a person attempts to get sober on their own, they will fall back into using at some point during the detox phase of their recovery. This is due to the fact that withdrawal symptoms are tremendously difficult to deal with without medical supervision. Plus, even after withdrawal symptoms have stopped, relapse remains a serious danger. We want to set up all of our patients for success which is why we usually begin the treatment process with our medically-supervised detox.

Once medically cleared, each patient transitions into the residential portion of their individualized treatment plan. They will be in different types of therapy throughout the day and have break for food and fun in between.

Each of these programs is tailored to treat any co-occurring mental health issues. This is also called dual diagnosis or integrated treatment and is crucial for taking care of the whole patient.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse maintains that effective treatment most often involves the following steps:

  • Detoxification, or ridding the body of addictive substances
  • Behavioral therapy and counseling
  • Medical support
  • Evaluation and treatment for co-occurring mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, or obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Long-term follow-up to maintain sobriety and prevent relapse

Each of our programs are tailored to treat any co-occurring mental health issues. This is also called dual diagnosis or integrated treatment and is crucial for taking care of the whole patient.

Medical Detox

Our Panama City Beach, FL drug rehab program starts with detoxification, or detox, and stabilization. This means the patient begins his or her treatment by getting physically healthy and creating a strong foundation for building a new life. The best drug rehab facilities offer medically supervised detox services, ensuring patient safety and support, and treating withdrawal symptoms if and when they arise.

During this phase of treatment, over-the-counter medications may be provided to help lessen the discomfort of short-term withdrawal. In more extreme cases, such as heroin withdrawal, a medication such as Methadone or Suboxone might be prescribed, but only under extenuating circumstances, and only with the goal of total abstinence. After all, these drugs can themselves be addictive.


When it comes to the JourneyPure approach to treatment, our patients are fully invested and actively involved in their recovery, addressing not only their addiction but their underlying, co-occurring mental health issues. This is what is known as an integrated or dual-diagnosis treatment. It is hard work, but also pleasant in the wake of the life-altering events of drug and alcohol addiction.

Some features of this hard work include individual and group therapy sessions, drug counseling, one-on-one psychotherapy, and experiential therapy such as adventure, music, yoga, and equine therapy. As with many drug addiction centers, residential treatment lasts from 30 to 90 days.

Therapy is more than just talk. It imparts the tools and strategies needed to stay sober. It shows you how to apply these in your life. Different types of therapy will also be able to help with anger and stress management, trauma, anxiety, and grief.

  • In individual therapy, the patient has the opportunity to talk one-on-one with a counselor or therapist. This professional helps the patient better understand him or herself and his or her addiction.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the therapeutic practices offered by Emerald Coast. It can teach the patient how to recognize, avoid, and manage certain kinds of addiction triggers.
  • Group therapy is another part of our Panama City Beach, FL drug rehab. Group therapy allows the patient to practice interpersonal skills in a safe, understanding space. It also reminds patients that they are not alone in their addiction experiences.

Therapy can also be an active, hands-on, exciting experience. Experiential therapies get people “out of themselves,” and can lead to new experiences while also learning more about the self, emotions, and the recovery experience.

We offer experiential, adventure, yoga, art, music, and equine therapy. We encourage our patients to supplement their recovery with these and other treatment options.
