House Voting To Ban Spice and Bath Salts

The House has voted to ban certain synthetic drugs now sold legally in some states that mimic the hallucinogenic and stimulant properties of marijuana (spice), cocaine and meth-amphetamines (Bath Salts).Supporters of the measure said synthetic drugs marketed under names such as “bath salts” and “plant food” can be just as harmful as the narcotics they are meant to imitate. The bill, which now goes to the Senate, also gives the Drug Enforcement Administration more authority to temporarily ban a drug while its potential dangers to public safety are investigated. Those against the bill said the bill went too far in restricting access to chemical compounds that could be of use in researching cures to diseases. If you know some one who needs help with an addiction to spice or bath salts contact Beachway Therapy Center at 877.284.0353.

Sending Your Family Member Away to Rehab

Should I send my family member away to rehab? YES, this is always the best option.  The drug and alcohol rehabilitation process is extremely difficult on both the client and the family. By sending your husband, wife, son or daughter away to rehab you increase their change of success. Why? Because putting the client in a new unfamiliar environment causes them to become reliant on the trained staff at the rehabilitation facility.

We suggest a minimum of a 100 miles form home and to an area they are unfamiliar with.

Alcohol Treatment Centers in Florida

There are numerous choices when it comes to selecting the best Alcohol Treatment Center in Florida. Some of the issues to consider are size, level of care needed, modality of treatment and qualifications of staff. The numerous choices can make your selection difficult. I’d suggest making a list of questions to ask before you start call alcoholism treatment programs.

Consider asking how many clients the facility can attend to, maximum capacity. When it comes to alcoholism detox and alcohol treatment bigger is not better. I would suggest a program with less than 30 clients. Each client brings to treatment their own set of issues. In large facilities, some over 200 clients, this creates a chaotic atmosphere. Chaos is not conducive to quality alcoholism treatment or recovery in general. 

Ask if the facility is licensed and by whom. Ask what levels of care they are licensed to provide. You want to select the least restrictive environment possible, considering the clients functionality. If someone is highly functional you do not want them attending treatment in a psych ward. The perfect setting for a functional person is a Partial Hospitalization Program or PHP. A quality PHP facility will house the client and monitor the client 24 hrs a day. The atmosphere in this type of facility is most conducive to long term recovery from alcoholism.

Finally consider both the modalities of care offered and the qualification of the staff. It is vital that the primary therapist have both the necessary education and licensing in both substance abuse and mental health. Some alcoholics may be undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with a mental illness. It is important that a treatment plan and therapist skill set can address both alcoholism and mental health treatment. Lastly chose a facility that offers multiple modalities of care. Prior to a client arrival it is impossible to know what type of therapies they will respond best to. To speak with a qualified alcoholism outreach professional call 877.284.0353.
