Stages of addiction treatment at Bright Futures Treatment Center

Addiction is an illness that isn’t very easy to treat. There are quite a few problems that accompany this disease – the fact that it requires lifelong attention and effort being one of them. Attending a heroin, cocaine, or meth rehab Florida center is the first step toward achieving long-term sobriety. However, just going into a treatment center and having yourself admitted isn’t enough. You’ll have to start by attending the right program, as it’s only with the appropriate level of care that you will be able to achieve the best and the most sustainable results.

Bright Futures Treatment Center specializes in innovative and individualized approaches to treating people suffering from chemical dependency. Our licensed masters-level clinical team has created a program that includes a variety of techniques. There are three levels of care that are offered at Bright Futures Treatment Center: Day/ Night with community housing, Intensive Outpatient Program, and Outpatient Program. We also offer Alumni groups for any client who goes through any level of care here at Bright Futures Treatment Center.

Day/Night with community housing

Most commonly, when a client completes detox they will be entering our Day/ Night with community housing program. During the first six months or so of recovery clients may experience Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS). PAWS are mild withdrawal symptoms that may happen even after completing detox. Having the additional structure of our program ensures clients are getting the appropriate care during this time.

Bright Futures Treatment Center encourages Day/Night With community housing for clients beginning their recovery. The average length of this phase in the program is 30 days, though we do offer extensions in our Inpatient rehab Florida center to clients who need them. During this time, we introduce outside 12-step-based meetings to our clients, which helps our clients develop a routine of attending meetings on a regular basis.

A person will have to go through both individual and group therapy on their way to recovery.

After being admitted into Bright Futures Treatment Program our Clinical Director will meet with each client to determine which therapist best fits their needs. This therapist will be with them throughout their stay at Bright Futures Treatment Center. Starting the client’s first week, they will be meeting with their therapist for individual sessions weekly. Depending on the needs of that client there are some cases where clients will meet with their therapist multiple times per week. In addition to the individual sessions, clients will also be attending group therapy sessions during the week.  Clients are also given the opportunity to go to the beach or gym after they complete their daily groups.

Clients will also be offered some holistic approach groups during their time at Bright Futures Treatment Center. These groups include yoga, meditation, and art therapy. In these groups, clients learn how to get in touch and take care of their minds, body, and soul.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

The intensive Outpatient Program Florida (IOP) is the next phase in the program here at Bright Futures Treatment Center. Clients in our IOP program are required to attend groups three times per week, as well as see their therapist once per week. Though this level of care has a bit more freedom, we still ask our clients to attend 12-step-based meetings. In IOP, clients will start looking to get back into the working field. Clients will be assisted in resume building, job searching, and interview prep. This helps the transition back into everyday life to be smooth. While in IOP, we encourage our clients to continue in a sober living environment, and we assist in placing them in structured sober living.

People attending IOP can go through treatment from the comfort of their own homes or they can stay in sober living facilities.

Keep in mind that you can first finish Inpatient treatment and then move on to our IOP care. Likewise, you can go straight for IOP, but this is only advisable for certain individuals. If you have a moderate to mild addiction, then you can give IOP a try. Due to its intensity, it isn’t the best option for people who already exhibit signs of severe addiction. In that case, a lengthier stay inside a drug or alcohol rehab Florida facility will be necessary.

Outpatient Program (OP)

Our Outpatient Program is the next level of care at Bright Futures Treatment Center. Clients are expected to attend groups and meet with their therapist once per week. In this phase, clients should have already obtained a job, and a sponsor, and actively be working the 12 steps. Likewise, they should already have all the healthy coping skills and mechanisms mastered. This stage marks a person’s reintegration into society, and it’s a moment that everyone has been working on. Make no mistake – this doesn’t mean that a person should let themselves go and start thinking that their road to recovery is finished. Addiction recovery takes lifelong work, which is why we provide yet another level of care for our clients. 


Recovery is a lifelong commitment that begins with the decision to get sober. It has been clinically proven that those who participate in an extended substance abuse treatment program have a higher success rate in their sobriety. Even after completing your care at Bright Futures Treatment Center, our team offers support to the clients. Our alumni program is made up of individuals who have gone through different levels of care here. Alumni meetings are held at the clinical office each week. Along with the meetings, there are frequent outside events and activities for alumni to take part in.

Having a chance to spend quality time around people who are dealing with the same challenges will be highly beneficial for your recovery.

Attending this program allows you to stay in touch with yourself, as well as people who are battling the same problem. There’s a chance that you will reconnect with some acquaintances that you made during your stay in our drug rehab Florida facility. But you will also get to meet brand-new people who have been getting the necessary treatment before or after you. All of that will help you stay on the right path – the path to lifelong sobriety.

How to know which stage of addiction treatment to begin with?

If you are not entirely sure which level of care is going to work best for your needs, you can always consult our experts. The job of our professionals is to provide all the necessary guidance during your recovery. Our experts have the necessary experience and knowledge to assess your needs and the level of your addiction. Once we know how deep into addiction you are, we won’t have a problem recommending the right treatment.

A consultation with our experts is an advisable thing to do before entering a heroin rehab Florida facility. This is particularly important if this will be your first time inside a rehab facility. We know that the beginning of your journey is always scary, but you don’t have to go through it alone.
