Drug Rehabs in Pasco County, Florida

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Pasco County can be found in the southeastern state of Florida. It is home to an estimated population of around 553,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau making Pasco County one of the larger counties in the state. This means that you can find increased rates of drug addiction and overdose here ever since America's drug epidemic began sweeping the nation around the beginning of the 2000s. According to County Health Rankings, from 2015 to 2017 there were 422 drug deaths in Pasco County, one of the highest rates in the state for any county during that time period. This shows exactly how many people didn't get vital help with substance abuse services from rehab and detox facilities. But that doesn't mean they necessarily got poor help since so many people accidentally overdose before ever getting into treatment. In early addiction, this is very common because the person has a low tolerance and can overdose quite easily. They also aren't looking for help because they do not think they have a problem yet. They may believe that they can stop whenever they want to, so rehab is the last thing on their mind. This is why you should never ignore suspicions you may have about them using drugs. One day it may be too late to act on them.
