Daytona Beach is home to many residents who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, and it isn’t very different from other cities when it comes to rates of drug poisonings and overdoses.
In 2016, there were 51 cocaine-related deaths in the Daytona Beach area.1 There were also 21 heroin-related deaths and 32 fentanyl-related fatalities.1 If you or someone you know is abusing drugs or alcohol, it’s not too late to get help.
When left untreated, substance use disorders can increase the risk for serious issues, including mental illness, stroke, and heart disease.2 Other possible health consequences of addiction include lung disease, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, and cancer.2
Addiction can also cause the following problems with your overall livelihood:3
- Loss of employment
- Poor performance at work and school
- Problems with the law
- Relationship breakups or divorce
- Unsafe sexual practices that lead to unwanted consequences
- Problems with memory and concentration
Addiction can happen to anyone, and it affects each person differently based on factors, such as environment and the type of substance being used. Treatments at Daytona Beach rehabs can be individualized for each person based on these factors, and they are designed to use a whole-person approach to addiction.4
