Addictions We Treat

Home/ Treatment

Orlando Treatment Solutions is equipped with a variety of drug rehabs that will help the addict achieve sobriety. Addiction treatment in Orlando comes with a variety of amenities. Each drug rehab program we offer is unique in its own way and has different components to help motivate and guide individuals back into society, addiction-free. 

Our drug and alcohol rehab in Orlando begins with a medical detoxification process where medically trained staff provide medications and care in order to ease withdrawal symptoms. During this time, the client’s physical health continues to be monitored by our clinical team 24/7 via observations and lab tests.

Types of Addiction We Treat at Orlando Treatment Solutions

At our addiction rehab facility in Orlando, Florida, we provide our clients with the hope of a better tomorrow. We understand the complexities of addiction and its effects on those who suffer from it. Our team of compassionate addiction treatment specialists is here to help those who struggle with addiction to alcohol, prescription drugs, heroin, cocaine, and other substances.

Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol addiction can present itself in many different ways. Alcoholism is extremely dangerous because of the substance’s widespread availability and social acceptability. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be severe, which makes it so difficult for people struggling with addiction to stop drinking on their own accord. Treatment often requires medical supervision due to this fact to keep patients safe while they go through detoxification. 

Alcohol addiction can affect people in a number of ways:

  • Memory impairment
  • Increased tolerance
  • Problems with family relationships
  • Drinking more or longer than intended
  • Continuing to drink despite serious emotional, health, or social problems that are related to drug use
  • A strong craving for alcohol that persists even when alcohol isn’t being used
  • Withdrawal symptoms associated when not drinking alcohol

Alcohol’s long-term abuse can lead to liver disease, heart failure, and brain atrophy. There are many negative effects of alcohol on the body including an increase in the risk of cancer development, depression, anxiety, poor cognition skills, and more.

Prescription Drug Addiction

Prescription drug addiction can come in many forms. For example, drug addiction to painkillers may have stemmed from a legitimate medical prescription. However, drug addiction to Ritalin or Adderall is usually the result of recreational drug abuse. Our addiction treatment in Orlando can provide grace against the powerful attachment of prescription drug addiction.

Prescription drug abuse can be harder to recognize than substance abuse that involves only illegal drugs because these drugs are often prescribed by a doctor and assumed to be safe in small doses. Drugs such as Vicodin (an opioid) and stimulants like Ritalin and Adderall (amphetamines), however, produce euphoric effects similar to other opioids and stimulants such as heroin and cocaine.

The symptoms of prescription drug abuse can present as:

  • Dizziness
  • Doctor shopping (going to different doctors for prescriptions)
  • Borrowing prescriptions
  • Drowsiness
  • Memory impairment
  • Depression
  • Confusion
  • Weight loss
  • Impulsivity
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia

Opioid Addiction

Opioids slow down brain function by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain. Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and pain relievers available legally by prescription, such as:

  • Oxycodone (OxyContin®)
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin®)
  • Codeine
  • Morphine

Individuals who suffer from opioid addictions can find hope and healing here at Orlando Treatment Solutions.

Stimulant Addiction

Stimulants work in the central nervous system to speed up heart rate and breathing. Stimulant drug abuse can result in numerous health effects including increases in heart rate and blood pressure which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. There are both legal pharmaceuticals used on a limited basis.

Signs of stimulant addiction include the following: 

  • Hallucinations
  • Paraphernalia for drug use (i.e. water pipes, bongs, and syringes)
  • Increased irritability
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Anxiety/depression
  • Loss of appetite
  • Twitches
  • Seizure

Ecstasy Addiction

Ecstasy causes the release of neurotransmitters in the brain which are chemicals that control moods. This drug often makes users feel energized for prolonged periods of time while sending pleasurable sensations throughout their bodies.

Methamphetamines Addiction

Methamphetamines are harsh stimulant drugs that cause the body to release high amounts of energy. Methamphetamines are a very addictive drug that affects brain functioning, which can lead to drug-seeking behaviors. Crystal methamphetamine is a type of methamphetamine that is considered very powerful and dangerous.

Despite the harsh effects of methamphetamines, our substance abuse treatment in Orlando, FL can provide resources against this devastating grip.

Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is a drug that can make you feel alert, energetic, and happy. People who use cocaine usually feel like they have more energy and can stay awake for longer periods of time. This drug is commonly snorted but may also be injected into the bloodstream or smoked. 

Cocaine is found in powder or crystal forms, although it can also be found in liquid form if mixed with water. It is incredibly addictive and can lead to various health issues such as heart disease, mental illness, and stroke. 

Crack cocaine appears as off-white rocks which are heated to make a smokeable form of the drug which produces an extremely intense high for short periods of time (5-15 minutes). 

Treatment typically includes medications such as drug replacement programs (i.e. methadone), drug therapy, and counseling to help with recovery. Crack cocaine can drain the lifeforce out of you. So if you are suffering from cocaine addiction and you’re in need of drug rehab in the Orlando area, let Orlando Treatment Solutions help you today.

Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana addiction is a drug that is often used for recreational drug use. The drug can be smoked in the form of hand-rolled cigarettes or through water pipes and bongs, although it is becoming more popular to eat marijuana as well. 

Marijuana causes the brain to release dopamine in between synapses in the brain. It  can cause people to have difficulties with learning and memory. Fortunately, professional addiction treatment can point you in the right direction for marijuana addiction.

Signs of marijuana addiction include: 

  • Mood swings
  • Lack of motivation
  • Constant drug cravings
  • Compulsive drug craving 
  • Drug tolerance over time 
  • Decreased performance in school or work activities

What’s the Difference Between Addiction and Dependence?

The difference between addiction and dependence is the presence of drug-seeking behaviors. If drug abuse is present, then it’s called addiction. There is no cure for addiction. An individual who exhibits substance-seeking behaviors will look for ways to obtain substances either through their own means or by getting them from others—regardless of whether that drug has been prescribed to them or not. 

Drug addiction can be treated and drug-seeking behaviors might diminish completely if the drug abuser enters drug rehab. Of course, there is no guarantee that drug abuse will stop completely. Drug-seeking behavior might only diminish but not always go away entirely. The individual will always want to get their drug of choice but they may not resort to criminal activities (stealing or hurting others) to obtain it. 

A drug addict can also recover from drug addiction. There are different substance abuse treatment options available in Orlando such as inpatient and outpatient drug rehabs if needed—even though some people may prefer going to a drug detox center first before going into an inpatient facility. An individual will have a better chance of succeeding with recovery if they commit to the continuum of care.

What are Withdrawal Symptoms?

Withdrawal symptoms are the body’s way of reacting to sudden abstinence from substance use. This is because when drug addicts stop taking drugs, their bodies’ chemistry will be altered and they will begin to experience drug withdrawal symptoms. Our drug rehab in Orlando presents a fighting chance against these withdrawal symptoms.

Symptoms can range depending on the type of drug a person has been using. Some drug addicts experience physical and psychological effects while others only experience one or two types: 

Physical: muscle aches, flu-like symptoms (e.g., runny nose and eyes), diarrhea, fever, chills, and/or shakes

Psychological: restlessness, irritability, paranoia, depression, or mood swings


What are the Signs and Symptoms of Addiction?

The signs and symptoms of addiction will vary depending on what drug the person is addicted to.  Allow drug and alcohol rehab in Orlando to be the guiding hand towards recovery. Some drug addicts might be able to function normally at their job, school, or home even though they are suffering from drug addiction. 

Drug addicts may experience drug cravings, drug withdrawal symptoms when drug use abruptly ends, and they may lose interest in hobbies and activities they once enjoyed doing before suffering from drug addiction.

Here are some signs of addiction you should know about:

– Cravings that interfere with daily life

– The need for more drugs to get high or feel “normal”

– A person who has lost control over their drug use despite negative consequences

– Engaging in criminal activity or stealing money/possessions

– Decline in personal hygiene

– Social withdrawal
