Drug Rehabs in St. Lucie County, Florida

Last updated: 21 December 2021


St. Lucie County is a county that can be found in the state of Florida. Home to an estimated population of around 328,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, St. Lucie County is one of the smaller counties in the state by population. But even being small doesn't exclude it from experiencing the scourge of America's drug epidemic. According to County Health Rankings, from 2015 to 2017 there were 240 drug deaths in St. Lucie County, a rate which shows exactly how many people didn't get the help that they needed when it comes to drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Every single drug death was a life that could have been saved if the person had gotten the right kind of help for their needs at the right point in their life. But so many people never make it into treatment before they accidentally overdose. This is especially common in early addiction when the person has the lowest tolerance. They are also no likely to reach out for help at this point because they do not even think that they have a problem yet. This is why you should never ignore signs of drug use in a loved one or wait for them to act.
