Given Florida’s proximity to Central and South America, it’s not surprising that the Florida (FL) coast and specifically Miami Dade County have become the East Coast’s epicenter for drug trafficking in the US. Where there is high incidence of drugs coming into a community, there is certain to be major issues related to drug abuse and addiction. After factoring in Florida’s reputation as a vacation/party environment, it’s apparent that alcohol abuse is also prevalent.
In 2013, the Pew Center gathered a host of statistics related to crime within the state. According to the final report, there were 126,192 drug arrests throughout the state with almost 18% of them coming from Dade County. Even more alarming was the fact the state ranked 11th in the nation for drug-related fatalities (Trust for America’s Health survey) with 16.4 out of every 100,000 residents. The numbers have been trending up a bit over the last few years, which is an indication that law enforcement needs to do more to stop the trafficking and local government needs to do more to provide sufficient addiction services. This has proved difficult to accomplish.
Florida is close to experiencing epidemic levels of addiction to alcohol and illegal substances, particularly heroin. While some communities within the state have sufficient detox and rehab facilities, there are other areas that are impacted due to escalating abuse problems. One of the best solutions to this problem is for government drug abuse services to let heroin and other addicts know that seeking recovery from the illness of addiction away from home is preferable to staying local. There is great benefit from removing oneself from a dangerous environment fraught with temptation and devastation.
There is no shame in seeking help for alcohol addiction problems at an alcohol rehab Florida. When the opportunity arises, it should be taken with a high level of commitment. For many addicts, the process starts with a stint in a detox center to remove poisons from the body. When the body and mind are clear enough to cope with the issues at hand, it’s time to start the actual recovery process within a professional and reputable rehab facility. It’s here that addicts learn the truth about addiction and find ways to lead a normal life without the need to use substances.
The good news is that addicts in Florida have someplace to go when they’re ready for help and realize they can’t recover on their own. A professional and safe rehab facility is only a phone call away. The time to start recovery is now.
