Addiction isn’t a matter of willpower or a lack of a moral compass. It’s an illness that has to be treated mentally, physically, and spiritually in order to recover.

Few places are untouched by the opioid epidemic, however, many communities lack the resources to help those struggling with addiction. Brook Babes, a Program Supervisor at Rally Point, an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center located in West Palm Beach, aims to change that in his hometown.

As someone who has been sober for several years and has family and friends in the area, Babes wants to reach out and help as many people as he can who are struggling with addiction in the community. “Addiction isn’t a matter of willpower or a lack of a moral compass. It’s an illness that has to be treated mentally, physically, and spiritually in order to recover,” said Babes.

Babes has become a liaison for helping people in need get into reputable treatment centers whether it’s at Rally Point or other treatment centers. He wants people who are struggling with addiction to know that, “If you fully surrender to the process, then recovery is possible.”

Not only does he fight the stigma of addiction by sharing his story and reaching out to the community, he helps clients at Rally Point through a more compassionate and understanding approach. “Just because someone struggles with addiction doesn’t make them a bad person. Deep down inside they’re passionate loving people,” noted Babes.

The outdated idea that addicts must “hit rock bottom” and be cut off from loved ones before getting help isn’t a part of Rally Point’s culture. The center’s addiction treatment programs are tailored to the client’s unique needs, and based on love and inclusion in a family-like atmosphere.

In addition to having a local on the staff, another benefit of Rally Point for Southwest Florida residents is that it’s close enough to easily travel to but far enough away to focus solely on treatment. Rally Point is different from other addiction treatment centers with its unique services like adventure therapy, group outdoor activities, yoga/meditation, art therapy, music therapy, and on-site fishing. Its facilities also offer all the comforts of home including a full kitchen, air-conditioning, washer & dryer, flat screen HDTVs, swimming pool, therapy dog, and much more.

If you or someone you know has an opioid addiction, traveling to another city for treatment offers a variety of benefits like fewer distractions, increased privacy, and more specialized services. Visit http://www.RallyPointPB.com today to learn more about their addiction treatment programs.
