Finding the Best Rehab in Florida

Are you looking for the best rehab in Florida for you or your loved one to recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction? Finding the best rehab might seem like a daunting task, especially considering there are hundreds to choose from. Over the course of the past several years, rising rates of substance abuse throughout the state have caused a surge in new detox centers, inpatient rehabs and outpatient programs. However, when looking for the best rehab in Florida to meet your individualized needs it is important that you know what to look for. We have created this guide to help you ask the right questions and make your search as simple as possible. The guide includes some information about the addiction issues specific to Florida, a list of questions to ask when seeking treatment in Florida, and some recovery resources that might be helpful in the state.

Substance Abuse in Florida

Florida is a region of the U.S. that has been especially hard hit by substance abuse and dependence in recent years. Based on information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 81,000 overdose deaths occurred throughout the country in the 12 months ending in May 2020 — the highest number of fatalities ever recorded within a 12 month time period.

Florida saw a 38.4 percent increase in drug-related overdose deaths between July of 2019 and July of 2020. This increase in drug-related fatalities is significant when compared to the 24.2 percent increase nationally.

Floridians experienced higher rates of substance abuse, dependence, and drug-related overdose than residents of other states. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there were 67,367 drug-related overdose deaths reported throughout the country in 2018.  In Florida, there were 4,698 overdose deaths reported over the course of the same year. Of these fatalities, 3,189 were directly linked to opioid narcotics like prescription painkillers (oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine or codeine), heroin or synthetic opioids like fentanyl. The opioid epidemic in Florida can be partially attributed to the high prescription rates throughout the state. According to NIDA, “In 2018, Florida providers wrote 53.7 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons, compared to the average U.S. rate of 51.4 prescriptions.”

Rates of alcohol abuse and dependence are also high throughout the state. The CDC reports that excessive drinking costs Florida upwards of $15 billion annually. The Florida Behavioral Health Association reported that in 2019, it was determined that roughly 18 percent of adult Florida residents engaged in excessive alcohol consumption or binge drinking over the course of the past month. The number of untimely deaths in which alcohol played a role increased 72 percent in Florida between the years 2012 and 2019.

How to Find the Best Rehab in Florida
What to Look For

When looking for the best rehab in Florida to meet your needs or the needs of your loved one, it is important that you determine which level of clinical care is going to be the most appropriate. It is always recommended that a person begin his or her recovery journey with medically monitored detox, where he or she will undergo a safe and pain-free withdrawal and work towards physical stabilization. The next level of care depends heavily on the severity of the substance abuse disorder and the presence of any underlying conditions (either physical or psychological). It is generally recommended that a person continue with a short-term stay in a demographic-specific inpatient facility.

When looking for the best rehab in Florida to meet your needs, ask the following questions:

  • Does the rehab offer dual diagnosis treatment options?
  • Is the rehab licensed and accredited through the state of Florida?
  • Does the rehab combine a 12-step approach to recovery with therapy and holistic methods of integrated healing?
  • Is the rehab run by a staff of licensed and highly trained professionals?
  • Does the rehab provide a comfortable, homestyle retreat environment to clients?
  • Does the center offer additional amenities geared towards client comfort?
  • Is the rehab located in a recovery-rich community?
