Stimulant Addiction Treatment at Boca Recovery Center 

The qualified staff at Boca Recovery Center locations have helped more than 10,000 people address their addictions and build a new life. 

We know treatment plans work best when they’re personalized. You should have a say in what components are used to help you get better. However, these are the elements people often need to overcome stimulant abuse: 

Medical Detox 

After repeated use, your body becomes accustomed to the constant presence of stimulants. When you quit, withdrawal symptoms can appear. Researchers say these symptoms are typically not life-threatening.[3] However, many people relapse to amphetamines due to the intense cravings they feel when they quit.[2] Medical detox can help you break the cycle of quitting and immediately relapsing.

In medical detox at Boca Recovery Center, your team will watch your symptoms carefully and treat them when they appear. Antidepressant medications could help you stay calm, over-the-counter therapies could ease pain, and benzodiazepines could reduce psychotic symptoms.[2]

You’ll get care in spaces designed for comfort. Dim lights and cool rooms will help you stay calm and collected, and you’ll sleep in soft beds with crisp sheets. If you feel like discussing your symptoms, your team is ready to listen. You can also heal in peace. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration hasn’t approved any medication for stimulant addiction.[4] While medications can play an important role in recovery from drugs like heroin, stimulants are different. 

Researchers know that depression and cravings can persist for months after people quit stimulants.[2] If you’re struggling with intense emotions and an urge to return to drugs, your treatment team might provide long-term treatment with antidepressants or mood stabilizers until your feelings stabilize.  

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment 

An inpatient drug rehab program involves moving into the Boca Recovery Center facility for at least 30 days. Since stimulant addiction symptoms can linger, many people need to stay in the facility for much longer. 

During inpatient rehab, you’ll spend every day working on your stimulant addiction. You’ll attend group counseling, spend individual time with your counselor, learn more about stimulants, and take your medications. 

Your days are structured at Boca Recovery Center, and no drugs are allowed. You’ll learn what a healthy, drug-free day looks like, and you can replicate this schedule when the intensive phase of your program is through. 

Therapy Options 

Since there are no FDA-approved medications for stimulant addiction, therapy is the cornerstone of evidence-based care. We hire only qualified, compassionate, skilled practitioners to help our clients, and you’ll get a treatment program that’s made for you. 

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration says the following types of therapy are effective in treating stimulant addiction:[4]

  • Motivational enhancement therapy/motivational interviewing: This type of therapy focuses on resolving your ambivalence about entering treatment and stopping substance abuse.
  • Contingency management: You receive tangible rewards like vouchers or cash for abstinent behaviors, such as drug-free urine tests.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): You work with a therapist to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to avoid relapse and learn coping skills.

Other therapy approaches we offer at Boca Recovery Center include the following: 

  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): This type of CBT involves talk therapy and an education aspect to improve emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Group therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you meet with other clients to discuss issues related to stimulant addiction, challenges, and successes. You may practice sober social skills, drug refusal strategies, and role-play.
  • Family therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you and at least one family member meet to heal the damage caused by stimulant abuse, improve family bonds, and learn conflict resolution and communication skills.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): A therapist works with you to reduce the distress related to traumatic memories using focused eye movements.
  • Holistic and complementary therapies: Combined with evidence-based therapies, holistic therapies like creative arts therapy and yoga may help treat various aspects of addiction.
