A groundbreaking report published by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University concluded that “the vast majority of people in need of addiction treatment do not receive anything that approximates evidence-based care.” The report added, “Only a small fraction of individuals receive interventions or drug rehab treatment consistent with scientific knowledge about what works.”

ROLAND REEVES, MD, FACS, ABAM founder of Destin Recovery in Destin, Florida has been Board Certified in both General and Vascular Surgery and is Board Certified in Addiction Medicine. Dr. Reeves is involved continuously in all aspects of patient treatment. He and his medical team at Destin Recovery use research proven methods to treat addiction. They treat the disease of addiction and substance abuse with the same rigorous methodology as you would treat diabetes, heart disease or depression. Treatment involves the latest science that combines medical therapy and private, one-on-one counseling.
Addiction is a chronic disease in the same way that heart disease, diabetes or asthma are chronic diseases. A band-aid approach does not work for addiction any more than it would work for these other chronic diseases. A comprehensive ground-up approach along with a clear long term strategy is imperative for any of these diseases, including addiction.

Addiction Treatment Services
Addiction is a biological disease of the brain. There are specific and well documented chemical and physical changes in the brain that promote and sustain addiction. The physical, behavioral, and spiritual expression of these changes manifest as the disease state of addiction. Addiction is a disease of the brain and treatment must involve actions proven to alter the structure and function. “Powerlessness” is a need for relief, and biology decides what will provide that needed relief. This biology trumps willpower. Short term and long term planning is needed to carry out actions that will change the brain and maintain those changes. These actions must also provide a spiritual path of awareness of the present moment.
There are many excellent treatment centers for addiction. Unfortunately, studies have shown that only a small percentage provide what is considered to be research proven methods of treatment. The best methods to treat this chronic disease combine ongoing medical therapy, intensive counseling, mindfulness teaching, completion of the AA twelve steps, and ongoing assessment of rehab retreatment modalities. Cookie-cutter band-aids do not work. Family education and very specific long-term plans for the patient are imperative for recovery.
Frankly, we believe if you have a disease you should see a doctor.
Dr. Reeves is an intricate part of Destin Recovery’s treatment planning and conducts multiple groups and individual sessions with all patients. He and his staff are committed to overhauling the current intervention and treatment approaches to match what medical evidence tells about this disease.
What to Expect at Destin Recovery
A groundbreaking report published by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University concluded that “the vast majority of people in need of addiction treatment do not receive anything that approximates evidence-based care.” The report added, “Only a small fraction of individuals receive interventions or treatment consistent with scientific knowledge about what works.”
A patient at our drug and alcohol rehab center in Florida can expect quality, individualized, medical treatment and on-going professional recovery support. We don’t treat a chronic illness for four weeks and then send our patient to a support group; People with a chronic form of addiction need multimodal treatment that is individualized and offered continuously or intermittently for as long as they need it.
Dr. Reeves is intimately involved in all areas of treatment daily and on a continuous basis. He believes that the daily involvement of a medical professional is of vital importance for this or any chronic medical disease. His passion for treatment in part stems from his own journey and first-hand knowledge of the devastation addiction brings and the true miracle that real recovery provides.
Recovery requires education of why addiction is a disease; a deep understanding of how this disease changes the structure and function of the brain; why it affects our every thought and decision; and how it has affected our life and our family. True Recovery from this disease is re-discovering how to live life without a substance altering our mind. Healing takes place not only with knowledge, but with applied evidence-based knowledge. Action then allows healing to permeate our minds, bodies, emotions, and spirits. Applying this knowledge provides an immediate chance to live in a meaningful way, and learn how to truly enjoy living.

What Happens to the Family When Addiction Becomes Part of It?
Addiction is a family disease that is oftentimes painful to live with, which is why those who live with addiction may become traumatized to varying degrees by the experience. Living with addiction can put family members under unusual stress. Broad swings, from one end of the emotional, psychological and behavioral spectrum to the other, all too often characterize the addicted family system. Normal routines are constantly being interrupted by unexpected or even frightening kinds of experiences that are part of living with a loved one that is in need of a Florida rehab center.
The drug user as well as family members may twist, manipulate and deny reality in their endeavor to maintain a family order that they experience as increasingly slipping away. The entire system becomes immersed by a problem that is slowly spinning out of control. Little things become big and big things get ignored as pain is denied and manifests in other ways.
Destin Recovery integrates the family into the drug and alcohol rehab programs when possible to increase the success rates of long term recovery.
