At Neuro Psychiatric Addiction Center (NPAC), our mission is to give our patients high-quality addiction treatment in a comfortable, welcoming environment. Our cozy tropical location in Port Saint Lucie, FL, has all the comforts you need to feel right at home while being staffed by an expert, highly experienced team.
We’re here to demystify the disease of addiction. We combine traditional, evidence-based talking therapies with cutting-edge approaches, such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), to ensure the best possible chances of success. Our ethos is underpinned by the spiritual program of the 12-steps.
If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, NPAC is the only place you need. We provide inpatient detox, addiction treatment, mental health interventions, medication prescribing, and long-term support, all under one roof.
Although no one dreams of going to rehab, you don’t deserve to be punished. Combining world-class therapy with relaxing recreational activities, complete with a fully staffed kitchen serving delicious, healthy food, we ensure your time with us is as pleasant as possible.
Addiction, known medically as substance use disorder (SUD), is a condition whereby people repeatedly use substances despite the obvious negative consequences. People with a SUD will fixate on using their substance of choice, to the point that they will prioritize it over every other element of their lives.
SUD affects the way we think and live our lives. Substances hijack our natural dopamine reward circuitry. They cause physical changes in our neurological system, resulting in intense cravings that can feel almost impossible to resist.
Anything that changes the way we feel has the potential to be habit-forming. It’s a popular misconception that you have to be physically dependent on a substance to be addicted. The truth is that any unhealthy relationship with mind-altering substances such as cocaine, heroin, and marijuana, has the potential to decimate your life.
This could involve continuing to use a substance despite not knowing the strength or driving while impaired. Also, acquiring illicit drugs means dealing with criminals, which can be extremely dangerous.
As our bodies adjust to the presence of substances, they become more effective at clearing them from our systems. Research shows the brain receptors targeted by substances also become desensitized over time, leading many to require increased amounts of the substance to feel an effect.
When the impact of substances wears off, withdrawal symptoms gradually arise. Different for every individual, common symptoms include feeling shaky, tired, angry, or depressed. You could also experience physical symptoms such as nausea, sweating, or seizures in extreme instances.
Being unable to set limits with substance consumption is a sign of addiction. For example, you might only set out to have one beer with dinner which results in a binge.
At NPAC, we believe that getting to the root cause of the problem is always the best solution. We deliver customized treatment packages that focus on helping you heal holistically. During your time with us, we’ll fully support you. From your initial landing phase to long-term support, we’ve got the answers here.
The first phase of treatment usually involves a detox. This is where we allow your body to naturally remove all traces of substances in a controlled and safe environment. Certain substances, such as alcohol, opiates, and benzodiazepines, can cause severe withdrawal symptoms if unmedicated. Our highly trained clinical team will be on hand to prescribe any medication you require to make your first few weeks of recovery as comfortable as possible.
We specialize in bespoke treatment packages to help you get back in touch with the real you. You’ll receive a customized blend of one-to-one and group therapy delivered by our highly skilled and compassionate therapists. How long you stay with us is up to you. Some of our clients stay for thirty days, some for sixty, and some for ninety. We’re partnered with a range of sober living facilities we can recommend when you decide to leave.
We pride ourselves on the long-term support we offer. If you’re struggling at any point, you’re always welcome back to attend groups. Our alumni services ensure that you can access support and treatment whenever you need to prevent the risk of relapse.
Reaching out for help is one of the cornerstones of recovery. You get a chance to talk about what’s troubling you and work through it healthily in our understanding group environment. People in recovery admitting vulnerability can be very inspiring. They’ll get to see someone talking and walking the walk, so your experience will be hugely beneficial to everyone.
At NPAC, we realize that everyone has different life circumstances, and we respect your individuality. We offer a range of programs that are tailored to your precise needs. These include:
When we identify that a substance addiction and a mental health problem coexist, this is called a dual diagnosis. This can be both causative and symptomatic, meaning that substance use can often cause mental health issues to arise and can also be an unhealthy coping strategy.
At NPAC, our goal is to treat both mental health and substance use simultaneously. We do this with a mixture of holistic therapy and medication if need be. You shouldn’t need to worry about your mental health causing you to fall back into old habits – we’re determined to help you find a healthy way forward.
Pregnancy is one of the most exciting things that can happen to us. However, if it coincides with substance addiction, it can also be one of the most worrying.
This comes with its unique health challenges. You need to stay healthy and deliver a healthy baby. You’re not alone in this – every year, thousands of women find themselves in this position.
At NPAC, we aim to show you that you’re more than up to the challenge. In our Forgotten Moms Program, we treat pregnant women suffering from addiction up to the second trimester. We can provide specialist detox treatment combined with medical support, nutritional guidance, and education to help you excel in both motherhood and recovery.
At NPAC, successful recovery is only a phone call away. We are always open, and we accept most private insurance plans that can cover your entire cost of treatment. The rest of your life is only around the corner.
