Drug Rehabs in Marion County, Florida

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Marion County is a county that can be found in the state of Florida. Home to a population of around 365 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, Marion County is one of the larger counties in the state. Since the early 2000s, America's drug epidemic has swept the nation and impacted areas like Florida very hard because of how densely populated it is. This means that places like Marion County have been hit hard by drug addiction and overdose. From 2015 to 2017 there were 331 drug deaths in Marion County according to County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, a rate which was one of the highest in the state for that time period. This means that each of those lives could have been saved if they had gotten the right kind of help from drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. But many people never make it into treatment before accidentally overdosing, so this is not necessarily a failure in the areas of the rehabilitation system. In early addiction, it is not uncommon for the person to accidentally overdose before ever being ready to receive help for their addiction. This is why you should never ignore signs of drug use waiting for the person to be "ready".
