Florida Drug Addiction Recovery and Treatment Programs and Centers

mflorida

Florida has been known as a hotbed for drug use and trafficking for years, and while law enforcement has made progress in its fight against the problem, there are still things to be done. Florida’s over eight thousand miles of open coastlines make it easy for smugglers to bring in their illicit cargo. Much of the drugs that are smuggled in from Mexico and the Caribbean are used IN the state of Florida, helping to create a problem that in 2008 cost the state of Florida over three hundred million dollars.

In spite of the state’s best efforts, “drug only” admissions to Florida’s drug and alcohol rehab centers have more than doubled since 1992. The abuse of marijuana and cocaine in relation to alcohol has risen steeply, and more and more people are now seeking treatment for addiction to prescription drugs. Florida’s drug treatment centers are now treating people that recreationally use prescription drugs like Oxycontin and Percocet, and the DEA says that five people die every day in Florida from drug overdose.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance, Florida

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), December 2008

As of 2006, there were almost seven hundred drug and alcohol treatment centers in Florida. Of those, ninety percent are privately run, either non- or for-profit. Only a small percentage are publicly owned, but those seeking drug treatment in Florida have plenty of options when they decide to get help.

If you are looking for help for substance addiction in Florida, you should know that not all treatment centers are the same. Not all of them offer the same services, and every one approaches treatment a little differently. In 2006, only forty-four centers offered treatment for opiate addiction, and only 608 doctors were certified in the administration of buprenorphine. If the program nearest you doesn’t offer the right services or medication, you may have to expand your range or even look out-of-state for help.

Everyone’s addiction is a little different, and not everyone will respond to the same type of treatment. Those with the most severe addictions may need the services of one of Florida’s residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Residential treatment offers the addict a chance to remove themselves from the environment and the temptations that may have led them to use drugs in the first place.

The amount of drugs that are available in Florida, and the targeting of children by dealers is a major concern for law enforcement, parents and teachers. Many teens are using “club drugs” like Ecstasy and GHB because they think they are less dangerous than cocaine- and as many of us know, marijuana use among teens is prevalent as well. The truth is- there is no such thing as a “harmless” drug, and experimentation can potentially lead to addiction. If you or a friend or family member are addicted to drugs, seek help from one of Florida’s rehabilitation centers.
