Tallahassee Men’s Rehab
For 60 years, Adult & Teen Challenge, the parent of Tallahassee Men’s Rehab, drug and alcohol addiction treatment has provided a proven long-term and permanent recovery from addictions. We are part of the largest and longest continuously operated group of addiction treatment centers in the world, with over 200 centers in the U.S. and 1,300 centers worldwide.
Tallahassee Men’s Rehab is an affordable drug and alcohol recovery program for men in South Florida, age 18 and older. This year-long residential program provides peer-to-peer, group, and individual counseling, parenting classes, spiritual inspiration, relapse prevention, anger management, drug and alcohol education, recreational opportunities, and vocational rehabilitation.
Tallahassee Men’s Rehab is single-gender and a safe, clean, healthy environment, providing addiction recovery and recovery. Our caring staff is well-trained, most having come through a similar addiction recovery program themselves. Each individual in our care is treated with compassion and respect. Those seeking help must follow our proven plan and be ready to commit to a full year of recovery and life skills training.
We create life change, for, without life change, addicts and alcoholics will go right back to their addiction after a few days, weeks, or months. Anyone can go through detox and get off alcohol or drugs for a short while, especially in a highly monitored environment. Our goal is to provide long-term recovery and lifetime avoidance of addictive substances, once the individual leaves our program, even when hard knocks hit.
Calling addiction a “disease” is short-sighted and only deals with the symptoms of a deeper problem. While it is obvious that drugs and alcohol do affect the brain and actions once they are introduced, and those brain changes make it much harder for the addict to get off the substance, the addiction is actually precipitated by deeper personal issues. Addicts typically start “using” out of a personal need to cover up internal issues, such as a need for love, success, forgiveness, belonging, acceptance, a spiritual void, or a lack of life purpose. The addict fills such voids in their life with drugs or alcohol, which provide a temporary cover-up to the mental anguish. However, the substances will take hold and build a dependency, taking away the addict’s ability to stop on their own. The dependency becomes too powerful. Attempts to get off the substance can lead to painful and sometimes life-threatening withdrawal symptoms.
Once invited in, these substances can and often do entirely take over the individual and their mindset, mentally or physically preventing them from stopping on their own. The cost of maintaining a habit can sometimes cause the addict to turn to theft (even from their own family) or selling drugs, and that can lead to jail sentences. Usually, the substances are needed in higher and higher quantities or more frequently to achieve the same effect, until the addict overdoses or otherwise destroys their own body.
