Miami Rehab and Addiction Trends

It’s an unfortunate fact that South Florida (including the greater Miami metropolitan area) has long been and continues to be a major center of both the trafficking and the use of illegal drugs in the United States. It terms of trafficking, it’s all about location. South Florida is home to hundreds of miles of coastline surrounded by thousands of square miles of open sea reaching all the way to Central and South America. And Central and South America are major points of transit for almost every illegal drug you can think of, including marijuana, heroin, synthetic opioids, methamphetamine, and especially cocaine. As for drug abuse, it’s simple: use follows accessibility.

The news isn’t all bad, though. Primarily in response to the opioid epidemic, Florida has recently enacted legislation to fight back against the growing dangers of substance abuse. For example, in 2017 the State of Florida took action on six major recommendations of the Statewide Drug Policy Advisory Council in support of emergency medical treatment and drug rehabilitation efforts, including:

  • ensuring emergency responder access to lifesaving opioid antagonists;
  • making sure that medication assisted treatment is available to those with opioid and alcohol use disorders through publicly-funded treatment providers;
  • increasing the funding for extended-release injectable naltrexone to treat drug and alcohol addiction in community treatment programs; and
  • employing certified peer recovery specialists to link persons hospitalized for opioid use to community-based treatment services.

While government efforts are certainly commendable, there’s no denying that the state has been late to the game. And just how effective these efforts are in stemming the tide of drug abuse in Miami is yet to be seen. In short, there’s much more to do.

By the Numbers: The Need for Miami Rehab Centers

Miami has not been immune from the devastating effects of the nationwide opioid epidemic. In 2016, for example, heroin alone accounted for 139 overdose deaths in the Miami-Dade Medical Examiners District, more than 10 percent of all heroin-related deaths in the state that year.
[Drugs Identified in Deceased Persons by Florida Medical Examiners: 2016 Annual Report, pg. 44]

There are 80 substance abuse treatment facilities currently operating in or within 25 miles of the City of Miami. There are over 140 substance abuse treatment facilities currently operation within 50 miles of Miami, including those located in the communities of Miami Beach, Miami Gardens, Coral Gables, Hialeah, Hollywood, and Fort Lauderdale.
[Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)]

Shockingly, other forms of opioids (oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, and fentanyl) were responsible for a substantially greater number of deaths (577) in the Miami-Dade area in 2016.
[Drugs Identified in Deceased Persons by Florida Medical Examiners: 2016 Annual Report, pgs. 16-36]

Sadly, cocaine continues to play a deadly role in Miami’s drug use history, with 439 cocaine-related deaths in Miami-Dade in 2016.
[Drugs Identified in Deceased Persons by Florida Medical Examiners: 2016 Annual Report, pg. 39]

Other substances responsible for a substantial number of deaths in Miami and across Florida in 2016 include benzodiazepines, methamphetamine, and – of course – alcohol.

Choosing Alcohol or Drug Rehab in Miami

As mentioned earlier, the greater Miami area is blessed with an overabundance of drug and alcohol rehab centers, all but guaranteeing a good program fit for almost anyone seeking treatment. The problem is in locating that proper-fitting program – one that offers the services, amenities, and approaches to treatment most likely to lead to recovery success. Start by considering a number of important personal factors, such as the type of drug abused, length and severity of drug use, availability of insurance coverage and ability to pay, and immediate obligations to family, work, and school.

Next, it’s time to find a rehab center. Here are two great resources for beginning the search:

  • The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)’s treatment services locator map allows users to search available rehab facilities filtered by geographic location (city, county, state, and specific address), service settings, type of care sought, form of payment, gender, age group, and more.
  • The Substance Abuse and Mental Health (SAMH) program is the single State of Florida authority on substance abuse and mental health. The SAMH website offers a wealth of useful information on substance abuse treatment resources available throughout the state, including a search engine for finding local services by county on its Get Help page.

Finding Affordable Rehab in Miami

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates that health insurance companies provide coverage for certain healthcare “essential benefits,” including treatment for substance use disorders. Insurance rarely covers all rehab costs, however. And what happens to those persons in need of treatment without insurance?

Help in Funding Treatment at Private Rehab Centers

Assistance in paying for treatment at a private rehab center may be available directly from the rehab center itself in the form of one or more of the following programs:

  • Sliding fee scales: Treatment costs are determined on a sliding scale according to the client’s ability to pay, considering such factors as client income, family obligations, and personal debt and expenses.
  • Payment plans: Clients are able to take out low-interest loans and/or given the option of paying for treatment over time following completion of their programs.
  • Scholarships: Cost of treatment for clients demonstrating an exceptionally strong commitment to recovery is covered entirely or in part by the rehab center itself.
Government-Sponsored Miami Drug Rehab Options

Both the federal government and the State of Florida offer programs to help individuals in financial need get treatment for drug and alcohol dependence, including:

State-Funded Rehab

Treatment services in the Miami area may be available at substantially lower rates or totally free-of-charge at a state-funded rehabilitation facility. Such services, however, may be limited to local residents who can demonstrate an inability to pay for treatment elsewhere. Contact the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network for more information.

Medicaid

Medicaid is government funded and administered health insurance primarily for low-income adults and children, and qualifying individuals with disabilities. Coverage through Medicaid for the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction was expanded under the ACA, putting it substantially in-line with the act’s requirements for private insurers. In other words, Medicaid recipients are now eligible for substance use treatment services determined to be “medically necessary” as defined by the ACA.

Types of drug and alcohol treatment covered by Medicaid typically include detoxification, outpatient programs, inpatient residential programs, recovery maintenance and relapse services, and certain medications.

Medicare

Persons 65 years and older, as well some younger persons and individuals suffering from End-Stage Renal Disease, may be eligible for substance use disorder treatment under Medicare. Services must be deemed “reasonable and necessary” and may include, among others, partial hospitalization (PHP), outpatient and inpatient residential treatment programs, drugs for the treatment of opioid dependence, and services provided by qualifying physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners, and others. Coverage under Medicare may require payment of deductibles and/or copays by the patient.

Military and Veterans

Drug and alcohol treatment may be available through TRICARE, a health insurance program for active military, retirees, activated guard and reserve members, and their families. Additionally, treatment for eligible drug and alcohol dependant veterans can be obtained through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Alcohol and Drug Dependence Rehabilitation Program.

Native Americans

The Indian Health Service (IHS), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is responsible for providing federal health services (such as treatment for alcohol and substance abuse) to American Indian and Alaska Native people.
