General Drug Treatment
Miramar Recovery treats the following broad range of drug addictions
- Opiates / Narcotics
- Hallucinogens / Inhalants
Drug addiction is one of the most discouraging, destructive behaviors that acutely affects not only the addict, but everyone who cares about him or her. Whether it be addiction to prescription medication or controlled substances, those who suffer from drug dependence steadily degenerate to the point that they seem to cease being who they once were. The acquisition and consumption of drugs typically overrides all other considerations in the addict’s life. Jobs, interests, and most importantly, relationships, are typically neglected and ultimately destroyed. The addict becomes nothing but a ‘shell’ of the person they were and the person they are meant to be.
But there is hope. Life doesn’t have to be lived this way by anyone. Healing is a reality for those caught in the vice of drug addiction, as well as for family and loved ones, who are also greatly affected by the addiction.

Drug Addiction Considerations
Continued and prolonged drug use actually alters the brain’s function and even its internal structure. Drugs are appealing to the addict because they act on the ‘pleasure and reward’ centers of the brain. Addicts seek and consume drugs to access that ‘pleasure’ center or system of the brain. However, over time, the brain becomes accustomed to the affects of the drug and higher levels of it are required to achieve the desired euphoria that was easily attained, initially, with minimal amounts of the drug.
Causes of Drug Addiction
The causes of drug addiction are many. Commonly, there are co-occurring conditions present, such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar, attention disorders, or others that can facilitate addiction. But most often, drug abuse is a behavioral mechanism used by the addict to insulate or cope with painful, unresolved issues in his or her life. These underlying issues typically include some form of trauma, abuse, neglect, or other problems.
Drug Addiction Treatment
At Miramar Recovery, we have created a proven successful, comprehensive drug addiction treatment program, whose primary focus is helping our clients uncover and resolve the underlying issues that ‘feed’ their addiction. While most other programs teach a few methods of ‘managing’ those causes, we actually address and resolve them! Outcome studies evidence that when the underlying issues that drive the addiction are fully resolved, lasting sobriety and true healing can be achieved.
Individual Therapy - in our numerous individual therapy sessions each week, our clients come to understand the reasons behind their drug abuse and face them, head on. This way, triggers and issues are overcome and resolved, thereby preventing relapse.
Family and/or Loved One Therapy - resolving any underlying issues within the family or loved ones, relative to the addict, is also critical to ensure full recovery and healing. We provide intensive family therapy sessions through our Family Program, either in person or by phone conference, so that everyone close to the addict can be invested and involved in the healing process. We see almost as many wonderful improvements in the lives of family and loved ones, as we do in the client.
Comprehensive Counseling and Education – critical to understanding and engaging in treatment and the life-style changes required for lasting recovery from drug addiction.
Unparalleled Professional Staff – our staff to client counts are higher than most any other treatment program. We utilize three physicians, a psychiatrist, psychologists, master’s level therapists, a nutritionist, spiritual counselor if desired, and numerous other clinicians, each of whom has significant drug addiction treatment experience. Additionally we provide a masseuse, acupuncturist, activities therapist, two very talented chefs, who ensure a comfortable, healthy, and enjoyable treatment experience.
Attractive, Private Treatment Environment – our exceptional seaside residences are well-appointed, attractive environments, designed for an optimal treatment experience. Ask us about private room availability.
Limited Number of Clients – we treat no more than 6 clients at each residential property, which enables us to focus tremendous, individual attention on every client. Equally important, our limited size insures a secure, private, and socially comfortable setting for our clients
Activities and More – because of the intensive, individual therapy and treatment that we provide, we have realized that our clients need private time, as well as outside activity time, in order to process and rejuvenate themselves, while undergoing the intensive healing process. We provide numerous additional supplemental treatment activities, such as beach walks, daily gym attendance, biking, hiking and other fun activities, for those who are interested, which have proven to be highly effective in the treatment experience - ask about them when you call to speak with us.
