Barbiturate Addiction Treatment in Florida

Barbiturates are a group of sedative-hypnotic drugs that can treat seizure disorder, neonatal withdrawal, insomnia, preoperative anxiety, and induction of a coma for increased intracranial pressure. They can even be used for anesthesia.
Barbiturates have a high potential for abuse, and prolonged use can result in tolerance and physical dependence. A person with an increased tolerance will often seek a higher dosage in order to produce the desired effects, and this may result in dependence and addiction. Frequent barbiturate users may experience severe withdrawal symptoms within 8 to 15 hours of stopping the drug.

Polydrug use has long been associated with barbiturate abuse and barbiturates have historically been a secondary drug of abuse for people who misuse alcohol and heroin as their primary drug of choice: Co-administering barbiturates with alcohol and opioids like heroin, as well as benzodiazepines, increases the risk for overdose significantly. Barbiturates have an additive effect on these substances and consuming them in conjunction with one another makes them especially dangerous.

Our Barbiturate Addiction Treatment Program at Transformations by the Gulf St. Pete Beach, Florida

Holistic Drug Rehab Includes Boat Therapy

The success of a person’s recovery depends on the level of personalized treatment provided. When we say our treatment is individualized, we mean that we craft a program tailored to address the client’s unique physical, mental, and emotional needs.

In the client’s first 24 hours with us, we’ll evaluate their current state and work to understand what challenges they need to overcome. They’ll also have an initial session with our doctor and meet with one of our licensed mental health professionals.

After the initial evaluations, we’ll design a treatment plan with the sole mission of helping the client overcome and heal from addiction. Their program will focus on things such as:

  • Addressing and identifying root causes of addiction.
  • Creating a support system.
  • Developing healthy stress management techniques.
  • Eliminating substance use.
  • Learning how to communicate emotions effectively.
  • Maintaining a healthier lifestyle.
  • Repairing damaged relationships.
