Different Types of Treatments for Addiction

If you or someone close to you is struggling with substance abuse addiction, you probably have questions about Tranquil Shores rehab program or rehabilitation in general. Addiction treatment facilities vary in size and scope, and finding the right program can feel overwhelming. Recovery should be a personalized experience, so you need to understand the treatment options available.

Understanding how recovery programs work, how rehab helps and how to choose the best treatment program for your drug or alcohol addiction can help you in determining what treatment program is right for your needs. You’ll learn the difference between inpatient and outpatient recovery programs, long- and short-term stays, and receive comprehensive information about detoxification, therapy and aftercare.

When choosing an addiction rehab facility like Tranquil Shores, you first need to decide whether an inpatient or outpatient setting is right for you.

Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs

Clients often choose inpatient rehabilitation when their home or social environments contribute to the detrimental behavior that causes their addiction. During inpatient or residential rehabilitation, clients live at the facility during the recovery process and have no access to drugs and alcohol.

Our residential substance abuse program starts with an assessment and then our staff design a program addressing your needs. Clients undergo detoxification, therapy and aftercare.

Research shows that treatment programs should address all the client’s needs, not just their alcohol or drug addiction. Understanding the behavior that causes addiction is a critical part of recovery, as is identifying any underlying mental and health issues. We've found that the combination of medically-supported treatments and behavioral therapies work best in our long-term substance abuse rehabilitation, and family counseling can be key to your success. Treatment plans are reviewed often and modified as necessary.

Important Parts of the Recovery Process:

When choosing an addiction rehab facility, you first need to decide whether an inpatient or outpatient setting is right for you.

  • Evaluations to get to the root of the addictive behavior and recognize any mental or health issues that may play a role
  • Personalized treatment plans that are reviewed often and modified as needed
  • Medically-supervised detox
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Education about addiction
  • Family or marital counseling
  • Medical management during recovery
  • Aftercare to help transition back to home life

Our residential rehabilitation and recovery programs at Tranquil Shores eliminate access to any substances and offer a full-time, personalized approach to your recovery. We offer individualized rehabilitation programs designed for your specific needs and provide medical care and supervision in a peaceful, private setting.

From the moment you arrive at our beautiful waterfront drug and alcohol recovery center near Tampa Bay, you will begin your journey to a life of sobriety in a comfortable, supportive and relaxing environment. Enjoy walks on the beach and beautiful sunsets while getting the treatment you need.

Outpatient Rehabilitation Programs

During outpatient rehabilitation, you receive recovery services at the facility during the day while you continue to live at home. Outpatient rehabilitation works well for clients who have a strong support system for recovery in their home environment.

Different types of outpatient treatments include:

Intensive Outpatient

  • Intensive outpatient services focus on detox, recovery and preventing relapse. Treatments incorporate individual and group therapy, family therapy and education, and medication management. Typically, intensive outpatient treatments take place three days a week for two to four hours a day.
Therapy and Counseling

  • After detox is complete, group and individual counseling can take place on an outpatient basis. Counseling sessions help to identify the root of your substance abuse addiction and work on changing your behavior, giving you coping skills and helping you manage stressful situations.

PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION:Partial hospitalization works for clients who need to be monitored medically during the day and have a strong support system at home. Treatment takes place in a hospital setting for about three to five days a week for four to six hours each day.

At Tranquil Shores, we develop outpatient programs that are specifically designed to meet your needs. You receive extensive services during the day and return home to your support system in the evening. In our Tampa Bay center, our outpatient recovery programs for alcoholics and drug addicts typically include anywhere from one to fifteen hours of individual, group and family services each week, depending on your needs.

Outpatient Rehabilitation Centers for Substance Abuse in Tampa

Our clinical team customizes your treatment plan and makes adjustments as your needs change. We focus on your immediate goals but also give you the coping strategies to stay sober long-term.

Short-Term vs. Long-Term Care

Most facilities offer both short-term and long-term recovery services. Short-term treatments typically last for thirty days and long-term programs last for ninety days. Short-term treatments work well for clients with less severe substance abuse addiction or for those not ready to commit to a long-term stay. If you’ve tried a short-term rehabilitation program and relapsed, or have a severe substance abuse addiction, a long-term stay is probably the best option for you.

Although you are twice as likely to remain sober after a long-term treatment program, you may not be able to make that commitment at first. Try to find a residential facility that offers both short-term and long-term options so you can choose to extend your stay.

Both short-term and long-term treatment options are available at our residential Tampa Bay facility. At Tranquil Shores, the length of your stay depends on your recovery progress. There is no pre-set number of days. During your stay, you may begin to feel comfortable, safe and relaxed. After a short stay, you may decide to stay longer.

Types of Therapy During Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation

Whether you recover in an outpatient or residential setting, long- or short-term, behavioral therapy is a critical piece of your recovery. Find a facility that will get to the root of your addiction, take the time to understand you as an individual and meet your behavioral and medical needs.

Through the behavioral therapy process, counselors help you understand any mental and emotional triggers that go along with your addiction. You’ll learn coping skills, how to manage your thinking process to stave off cravings and how to avoid situations that could spark a relapse. Rehabilitation centers offer combinations of group, individual and family therapy, medical management and support to achieve your goals.

At Tranquil Shores, we believe therapy is a time to recover and reclaim your life in our peaceful, beachfront facility. Our therapy-driven rehabilitation programs give you the information and tools to abstain from substance abuse long-term and live a successful and happy life.


Group therapy can take place in both inpatient and outpatient settings and is a key component for success when recovering from substance abuse addiction. While working with a counselor, you interact with other individuals trying to overcome substance abuse addiction. You share experiences and reduce stress while identifying triggers and learning the coping skills to abstain from drugs, as well as alcohol. Groups work together to build the constructive behaviors necessary to live a life of sobriety.

A group therapy session typically starts with introductions and updates followed by a therapist-led discussion. Discussions vary depending on the needs of the clients involved. Your group may spend a session undergoing cognitive therapy where you learn to avoid relapse and discuss the consequences of your addiction. You may discuss how to manage feelings of loneliness and anger or work through traumatic events and unresolved issues. Other experiences may involve alternative healing strategies, spirituality and the use of expressive art.

Through group therapy sessions at Tranquil Shores, you’ll learn the behavioral skills necessary to stop or reduce drinking, develop a strong social support system and attain reachable goals. Our behavioral therapy sessions are personalized, comprehensive and evidence-based. We integrate your learning style and talents into your sessions. You may also undergo didactic, experiential and gender-specific therapy, and participate in alternative healing sessions. Our highly-effective treatments incorporate six hours of group therapy each day.


Individual therapy focuses on your specific needs and is a critical piece of the recovery process. Clients gain support in a safe setting by working with a therapist on an individual basis. Through this process, you develop the inner strength and confidence necessary to live a happy and sober life over the long term.

Individual sessions cater to the client’s needs. You discuss progress, personal obstacles, cravings or withdrawal symptoms without any judgment. Together, you work to change your behavior and learn the coping skills necessary to avoid substance abuse and handle stressful situations. At the end of a session, you typically set short-term goals for your recovery.

Tranquil Shores offers individual therapy sessions at least twice a week that focus specifically on your needs. During those sessions, we use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to identify your triggers for substance abuse and give you specific coping skills necessary to lead a sober lifestyle, manage your stress and prevent relapse.

Individual Counseling for Addiction in Tampa Bay

We understand that you are an individual and your recovery needs are different from anyone else’s. Your individual counseling sessions at Tranquil Shores are customized to your specific learning style and talents. With a low 3:1 client to counselor ratio, we are able to give you the support you need while you recover in a nurturing and compassionate environment.

Medical Detoxification

During detox, medications may be used to calm the central nervous system, control tremors, stop seizures and help with the psychological symptoms. Medical supervision, support and treatment options keep you safe and comfortable during the detoxification process. If you are considering treatment, you should understand the different levels of care for medical detox.

The levels of care for medical detox include:

  • Ambulatory Medical Detoxification:This level of medical care takes place at a doctor’s office and may or may not include extended monitoring at your treatment facility. Any medical monitoring at the treatment facility takes place on a set schedule throughout the day.
  • Clinically Managed Residential Medical Detox: Supervision and support from your clinical team occur 24 hours a day and seven days a week, but the medical team is not necessarily involved.
  • Medically Monitored Inpatient Medical Detox:In this situation, medical teams are accessible in your residential facility around the clock.
  • Medically Managed Intensive Inpatient Detox: This is the highest level of medical and mental health care and supervision for clients in a residential setting.

At Tranquil Shores, we review these options and provide the right detox setting for you. Your safety and comfort during detox are of utmost importance to us. We provide you with the highest standard of medical supervision and response during your recovery process.

What To Look For In A Treatment Program

If you are looking for a substance abuse treatment program you may be wondering what makes a treatment program good? Each program offers different things, some more comprehensive than others. Treatment programs can be costly and offer different lengths of stay.

When looking for a treatment program you should consider the following:

Licensed therapists that are educated and trained in treating substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.
At Tranquil Shores we offer a 3:1 client to counselor ratio which ensures customized and individualized attention to individuals.
Group, one on one therapy and Family therapy are all very important in treating an individual recovering from addiction.
At Tranquil Shores clients are responsible for their own food shopping, laundry and keeping their condo tidy. When an individual completes treatment the transition back to daily life is easier having these skills under their belt.
At Tranquil Shores a treatment plan is customized for each individual upon intake. The goals for the individual are clear for the client and their family when they start the program.
At Tranquil Shores clients are offered continued group therapy for free as an alumni of the Tranquil Shores program, and encouraged to be a part of the Alumni group which is active and a great source of support.
At Tranquil Shores we have our own transitional housing exclusively for clients. This is a crucial time for individuals to have a strong support network and live in an environment where they can feel confident in maintaining their sobriety.
At Tranquil Shores we ask for a 30 day commitment, however our program duration is traditionally 90 days. 30 days is often not enough time to address the underlying issues of an individual abusing substances.
Cost varies among treatment programs. It should be clear up front before a client is admitted as to what the cost will be. You do not want to get surprised with an unexpected bill that was not discussed after you are already in treatment. This should be a time when you are solely focusing on your treatment.
At Tranquil Shores, we offer specialty rehabilitation services to diverse populations including, but not limited to, men and women with dual diagnoses, pregnant women, seniors, homosexuals, lesbians, transgenders, veterans, athletes, musicians, artists and more.
State licensing agencies provide information regarding the status of the facility, a history of complaints and if treatment is set in a residential or outpatient setting. Tranquil Shores fully meets the requirements for the state of Florida and offers both inpatient and outpatient treatment services for substance abuse.
At Tranquil Shores, we use evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to identify your triggers for substance abuse and give you the coping skills necessary to achieve abstinence long-term. We also use Contingency Management, which is incentive-based, to reward positive changes in your behavior.
We help spouses and families understand how treatment works, what to expect after treatment and the right way to support you in your recovery. Our highly-trained staff at Tranquil Shores helps your family understand that denial and enabling behavior only create a stronger addiction, and you need to see the consequences of abuse.

We strongly encourage you to tour our treatment center in person or speak with someone on the phone regarding these questions before you make a decision. Here at Tranquil Shores we welcome you any day to come in and tour our facility and meet our team. We want you to experience the center for yourself to make the best decision for you or a loved one’s treatment.

The Importance of Aftercare for Sustained Recovery

Relapse is common after recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Although you may appear to be healing, aftercare is necessary to prevent relapse from occurring months and years down the road. Even though this phase takes place after you leave the treatment facility, you will learn the strategies for success before your discharge, allowing for a smooth transition. You receive guidance and support as you transition back to your home environment.

Importance of Aftercare in Addiction Recovery

During Tranquil Shores' aftercare process, we provide you with the support and skills to cope with triggers and stressful situations that have sparked substance abuse in the past. When relapse occurs during this phase, it’s only a temporary setback because we work with you to overcome obstacles and get you back on track. Just like the rest of your recovery at Tranquil Shores, aftercare is customized to meet your specific needs.

Throughout the aftercare process, you’ll learn how to maintain your sobriety and successfully connect with support groups in your area. These groups can be a critical part of your aftercare by providing ongoing support for long-term recovery. Studies show that clients who participate in meetings post-recovery are more likely to stay sober over the long term than those who don’t. At Tranquil Shores, we help you connect with support groups and counselors in your community.

12-Step Programs

Step-by-step programs involve between 12 and 15 sessions, can take place individually or in a group setting and may include a sponsor. During a 12-step program, you’ll learn to take responsibility for your abuse, make amends to those impacted by your past behavior and maintain abstinence through genuine life changes based on cognitive, emotional, behavioral, social and spiritual principles. Examples of 12-step programs include Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Crystal Meth Anonymous.


Some people prefer a more secular approach to support. While 12-step programs incorporate belief in a higher power, other support groups promote self-empowerment, overcoming denial and accepting past mistakes. Some of these programs include SMART, Secular Organizations for Sobriety, Women for Sobriety and Celebrate Recovery. Family members impacted by a loved one’s addiction can also benefit from support programs such as Families Anonymous and Al-Anon.



Individual and group counseling can be an integral part of the aftercare process. You learn to build on what you learned in recovery: changing your behavior, learning new coping skills and managing stress. Sessions may focus on self-awareness, stress management, improving communication and working through trauma or other unresolved issues. You may also focus on underlying mental or health issues that impact family dysfunction and start to regain the trust of your family members.


Transitional living options can be beneficial for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. Residents live a group environment that restricts substance abuse but allows for more freedom, giving residents the opportunity to socialize or pursue employment. Since relapse is common after recovery, transitional care may be the right option for you before your return home.


You're Not Alone in Your Fight

If you are like so many people struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction you are probably feeling very alone.  It is not easy knowing you have no control over using a substance; that you are your own worst enemy.  Often times it is instinctual to try to stop using on your own, knowing what you are doing is wrong.  You may even be able to stop for a short period of time.  The reality is, however, addiction is serious and needs to be treated professionally with licensed clinicians equipped to help you.

About Tranquil Shores

Tranquil Shores is a private 24 bed facility that offers truly customized treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. Large treatment centers or multiple site centers run by large organization sometimes create a cookie cutter environment where clients receive little focus specifically to their needs. Tranquil Shores assigns a primary counselor to each client for individual therapy sessions. The clinician is able to focus solely on the client's unique circumstances and drill down to the underlying problem of their addiction.
