Florida Drug Rehab Centers

The effects of drug and alcohol abuse can be detrimental to one’s health and family, but are not invulnerable. The Florida Department of Families and Children suggests Florida rehabilitation centers–particularly 30-day inpatient programs–help patients overcome addiction while reducing one’s long-term risk of relapse, severe health problems, and death. This can be said for virtually any substance, though opioids are of particular concern. Florida’s opioid epidemic is so significant it was declared a public health emergency and spurred the launch of the Florida Opioid State-Targeted Response Project (OSTR). The OSTR dramatically improves under- and uninsured patient access to state-funded, medication-assisted opioid treatment and recovery support at Florida rehabilitation centers. Florida is also one of few states that allows pharmacies to dispense naloxone, a commonly-used overdose medication, without a prescription.

By the Numbers: Rehabilitation Facilities in Florida

Here are a few important facts and figures regarding substance abuse in Florida from the Office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (SAMH) of the Florida Department of Children and Families:

While there has been a steady decline over the last decade in alcohol use and binge drinking among Florida students, still 40% of students who consumed alcohol in the past month also reported binge drinking in the past two weeks. Additionally, alcohol was detected in nearly half of all drug-related deaths in the state during the first half of 2016. Alcohol abuse among college-age students is a particularly large problem in Florida during spring break.

There were a total of 779 heroin deaths in Florida in 2015, a 74% increase from the 447 total the previous year. This sharp increase in heroin deaths, combined with high levels of prescription opioid use have, “constituted an opiate epidemic.

Alcohol and opioids are not the only substances causing problems for Floridians. Figures have also indicated increases in the abuse of several other drugs including cocaine and methamphetamine over the past several years.

Paying for Florida Drug Rehab Centers

Treatment cost is major concern for most patients considering rehabilitation facilities in Florida. Rehab can be an expensive proposition. Fortunately, there are a variety of financing options available aimed at making treatment accessible to all who need it. Insurance, not surprisingly, is the main payment option. State Funding and Medicaid are other major options, with dozens of centers either fully state-funded or accepting state-funded Medicaid payments. Fee scaling and payment plans may also be available at specific treatment centers. Be sure to call each treatment facility under consideration and ask about all accepted payment options.

Those researching rehabs in Florida–and how to pay for treatment–are encouraged to contact the Florida House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides access to free and low-cost rehab programs. The Florida House also offers scholarships to those considering Florida rehab centers. According to its official website, the Foundation is licensed by the State of Florida’s Department of Children and Families (DCF) to provide an array of clinical addiction services.

Interview: Brittany Ringersen, Lighthouse Recovery Institute

Brittany Ringersen is the President and CEO of the Lighthouse Recovery Institute, a drug and alcohol treatment center in Boynton Beach, Florida. Brittany is a graduate of Florida State University and a Certified Addiction Professional who believes that addiction affects not only the addict, but the entire family as well.

  • What are the most commonly abused substances by the patients seeking rehabilitation facilities in Florida?

    I would say opioids and alcohol are consistently the biggest substances that patients are struggling with. For the over-40 population, it tends more to be alcohol. There’s alcohol addiction in the under-40 population as well, but for the most part we’re seeing such an influx from the opioid epidemic. Are there cases involving other substances? Yes, but I would say that in nine out of ten, it’s opioids.

  • What is it about Florida that draws people from out of state for treatment?

    Quite a few things. First, our location is awesome. It’s nice to come down here where you have the beaches and kind of check out. But I think that’s almost an afterthought. For a lot of individuals, it becomes very difficult to get sober where they’re currently residing. I’ll give you an example: Let’s say Johnny has tried to do treatment before in Cleveland. He doesn’t like what’s going on there, so guess what Johnny can do? He can walk out the door and have his girlfriend pick him up, or he can Uber. It becomes very easy for Johnny to re-immerse himself back into the same things he was doing before [treatment]. If he were hundreds of miles away, though, that puts up a lot of barriers for Johnny. Now you’re talking about a plane ticket, and mom and dad aren’t going to fly him home. It makes it a lot more difficult for someone to just pick up and say, “I’m done, I’m leaving treatment.” So, it forces the patient to engage on a level that he either could not or would not do in their own area.

  • Do you find that people coming to Florida from out of state tend to want to stay once their rehab program is completed?

    Individuals who don’t have an urgent necessity to get home tend to stay. There are situations where [patients] stay for an additional 60 or 90 days to get that community integration piece here, and then they go home. One of the biggest questions [patients] asked is, “When do I go home?” And a lot of times the answer is when you don’t have that fear anymore. When you no longer have that concern about being OK, that’s usually the right time.

  • It does sound like Florida is unique in terms of having lots of community support compared to a lot of other places in the country.

    Yeah. I think it’s starting to take off in other areas because there’s a need for it. A couple of years ago, it was so hard to find sober livings and homes, to make those referrals for the patient. It’s now become a lot easier for us to find sober livings in many more states.

  • So there appears to be some good news in that more communities are expanding their support systems.

    Absolutely. I truly believe that the “bad players” are weeding themselves out, and that there’s far more good [providers] than there are bad. For the most part, as a whole, the industry does its due diligence to regulate itself, and most facilities have the best interests of the patient [at heart]. Each has its own philosophy and vision. It’s not a one-size-fits-all. And as a patient, you’ve got to realize that you come in with your own set of underlying issues. So, if you’re going to do it, and you realize that it’s taken you so long to get here, you might as well find the program that makes the most sense for you. That doesn’t always mean the most expensive [program]. I truly believe those days are over unless you’re willing to pay a substantial amount out of pocket. It’s about what’s going to help you the most clinically.
