Clearwater is a city that can be found in the state of Florida. It is one of the larger cities in the state, but one drawback to being densely populated is that more people often means more drug use and overdose. This is why it is so important to have adequate drug rehab services in Clearwater. In 2019 there were 21.4 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents for the state of Florida according to a report published by America’s Health Rankings, a rate which was much higher than the national average during the same time period. This rate shows how many people are not getting the help that they need when it comes to drug rehabilitation in Clearwater. This rate may even be higher in densely populated cities like Clearwater. Each of these deaths may have been prevented if the person had gotten the right kind of help at the right time. But many people do not ever go to treatment and lose their lives to addiction. This is becoming even more common as drugs become stronger and more deadly. In early addiction, the person may accidentally overdose long before they would have ever been willing to get help. This is because they do not think they have a problem yet and have experienced few consequences up to that point. This is why you must intervene if a loved one is using drugs before it is too late to help them.
