Drug Abuse in Florida
Substance abuse is one of the biggest issues the Sunshine State is facing. In 2013 alone, there were more than 160,000 treatment admissions at community-based facilities.
Like many other Florida treatment centers and community-based rehabs, we have seen an influx of residents abusing the following substances:
- Prescription drugs
- Cocaine/Crack cocaine
Unfortunately, many Floridians don’t receive the help they so desperately need. Florida has the eleventh highest drug overdose mortality rate in the country, according to Trust for America’s Health.
We don’t want to see any more Floridians suffer a similar fate. Contact us today at (305) 671-9146 to learn about our treatment options.
Prescription Drug Abuse
Over the last few years, government officials and law enforcement have been trying to tackle Florida’s prescription drug abuse problem. In fact, some people would say prescription drug abuse has reached epidemic levels.
Pain clinics throughout the state contributed to this problem as they overprescribed opiates. Word spread that it was easy to "doctor shop" in Florida; soon people were coming from allover the East Coast to visit the state’s pain clinics. Eventually, I-95 was dubbed "Oxy Alley" because drug dealers from the North would take the highway to South Florida to buy cheap pills.
However, prescription drug abuse has been on the decline since Florida implemented a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP). The database has prevented many residents and out-of-state drug dealers from doctor shopping.
While the PMDP has caused prescription drug abuse to decline, it has also contributed to the rise of heroin abuse in the state. Since prescription opiates are hard to obtain on the streets, many Floridians have turned to heroin. Heroin provides the same euphoria as prescription opiates, but it’s a cheaper alterative. Law enforcement and drug rehab centers in Florida have seen a sharp increase in heroin addiction among 18- to 29-year olds.
Heroin is potent and extremely dangerous when combined with other substances. Between 2011 and 2012, there was an 89 percent increase in heroin-related overdoses.
Floridians are also struggling with alcohol addiction. In 2013, there were over 25,000 admissions at Florida alcohol treatment centers.
It’s not just adults who are abusing alcohol, teens are as well. A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that one out of three teens admitted to drinking in the last 30 days.
Marijuana is one of the most abused drugs in the state, and one that residents are frequently seeking treatment for at drug rehab centers. Last year, there were over 40,000 treatment admissions for marijuana at community-based rehab facilities.
Another drug that is popular among Floridians is Ecstasy, which nowadays is referred to as Molly or MDMA. Typically, Molly is abused by teenagers and 20-somethings. A recent CDC report found that Ecstasy use is prevalent among teens in South Florida.
Young adults often believe Molly is safer than other street drugs, but that could not be further from the truth. While drug dealers often proclaim that Molly is pure, they often lace the drug with toxic substances.
Although cocaine and crack cocaine are not as popular as they used to be, many Floridians are still battling an addiction to these powerful drugs. Last year, thousands of Florida residents sought treatment for cocaine addiction.
Whether a Floridian is addicted to heroin, alcohol or another substance, we are here to help them recover.
