Florida is known as the rehab capital of America, but addiction is still a problem for its residents. That is because people do not always want help, or do not benefit from it. At certain stages of addiction, the person may think they don't have a problem, so they will not reach out for help. In fact, they will actively hide their addiction and lie about it when confronted. They have not had many consequences yet from drug use and still view drugs as valuable.


TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Florida 12-step meetings and other peer support groups through the addicted.org directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—take advantage of Florida's numerous walking trails and outdoor scenery.
  • Access counseling through the Department of Children and Families or contact 2-1-1 Florida.
  • Find an activity—experience the national parks, beaches, communities like Little Havana, and amazing outdoors.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Dangerous opioids are commonly mixed with other drugs.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Find local help through Florida Health and the Department of Children and Families.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—numerous resources are offered through Florida Health.
  • Substance use disorder screening is offered through the Florida Department of Children and Families.
  • Organize a family intervention and hire a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling the person who is addicted to drugs or alcohol.

At later stages of addiction, the person may know they have a problem and even be open about it with everyone. They may use drugs openly and have no hope for a better future or care that they are killing themselves. Some people in the grips of addiction may be so miserable that they hope they die soon from drug abuse. This is because these people often have a very low opinion of themselves at this point and have likely tried treatment before and failed. They may believe that rehab doesn't work, or that it just does not work for them and they are a lost cause. This is too bad because treatment can help people and they likely had a bad experience and swore it off.

It is vital that when looking for help that you speak with an addiction professional about your options. You must be completely honest about your drug use so they can help you find the most appropriate level of care for your needs. If this step is done incorrectly, the person may struggle and fail in treatment and think it is because the treatment doesn't work when in fact, it could have.
