Cape Coral is a city that is located in the southwestern portion of the state of Florida. It is a densely populated city which can have drawbacks such as increased rates of addiction and overdose. This is why it is so important that there is a presence of drug rehab programs in Cape Coral.  In 2019, there were 21.4 drug deaths in the state for every 100,000 people according to a report published by America’s Health Rankings. This rate was markedly higher than the national average and was likely even higher in major cities like Cape Coral.

Not everyone makes it into treatment before it is too late, so it is important to understand why this happens so that we can do better. One of the biggest reasons why people never get help is because they refuse it. Most people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol will refuse addiction treatment most of the time. This is because they value the drug and fear dealing with life without their primary coping mechanism. But they can still be helped if the person working with them is patient and willing to communicate with them despite possible anger or hostility. These will eventually subside, and the person may just ask for help. There are many substance abuse treatment programs in Cape Coral that can help those in need.
