Living in areas of Florida like Jacksonville, where many people are struggling with alcohol and drug abuse, can make recovery challenging. In 2017, the rates of methamphetamine-related deaths and cocaine deaths were dramatically higher than the rates in 2016.1 If you struggle with drug addiction, you aren’t alone, and fortunately there are addiction treatment programs available in your area.
If you are drinking or abusing drugs and you are ready to make a positive change and break out of a cycle of addiction, there are a number of treatment options available. If you’re feeling overwhelmed about all of the different rehab facilities, you can always schedule an appointment with your doctor. They can assess your addiction, mental health, physical health, and risk of experiencing complicated withdrawal. Then they will use this information to refer you to the appropriate level of care—typically an inpatient or outpatient treatment center.
Inpatient or residential rehab in Jacksonville will provide you with 24-hour support and treatment while you live at the facility for the duration of the program. Outpatient treatment allows you to continue working, attending school, and fulfilling responsibilities at home while recovering. If you choose to attend outpatient, you need to have reliable transportation so that you don’t miss any treatment sessions. It also helps to have a strong and sober support system.
