Florida is a societal and regional foothold for the Southeastern United States. As the epidemic of drug and alcohol abuse and addiction continues to be a growing problem in the Southern States of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, Florida is becoming more and more the destination for those in the south who are seeking professional care and treatment for their addictions.
Florida is a coastal state with major shipping ports, and international points of entry. In the past, these gateways led to a spike in the amount of illicit drugs on the streets, which quickly gave rise to an epidemic of addiction that spread all over Florida. Florida has been battling these addictions for decades, and while they are winning the war on addiction, many surrounding states are now seeing their own sharp rises in addiction and drug-related crimes, making Florida’s drug rehab facilities and long-established addiction treatment programs a safe trusted destination for those from surrounding areas to seek treatment and counseling.
Treatment Types for Florida Drug Rehabs
- Impact Programs for Addiction
These types of programs are especially designed for those addicts that are at a very high risk of relapse, or have relapsed before. These programs are more intense than traditional drug rehab programs, utilize the 12 step methodology, and yet still provide a safe and caring environment for recovery.
- Family Treatment Programs
Treating both the addicted individual and the family and friends supporting the recovery process is a newer technique that has shown positive results since its inception. This full-family treatment not only places more allies and support in the recovery process, but also ensures that the addict will return to a loving and informed home environment after treatment – cutting the risk for relapse.
- Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Perfect for Florida residents who are not seeking residential treatment, but rather day-to-day treatment while continuing to work or attend school, and not requiring time-of-work request, or interruptions into schedules.
- Dual Diagnosis Addiction Treatment
Dual diagnosis treatment treats both addictions to drugs and alcohol, while also treating one or more co-occurring disorders. These co-occurring disorders are mental issues such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental issues that affect addiction and recovery.
In addition to many unique and new forms of addiction treatment, Florida is also home to some of the leading traditional rehabs in the country. Coupling a wealth of program options and treatment choices with a beautiful and relaxing location, Florida is a viable option for those looking to recover from addiction peacefully and comfortably.
