North Miami Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Like cities all across the U.S., North Miami has many residents struggling with substance abuse, particularly opioids.

The Medical Examiner’s Office reports that between 2005 and 2015, an average of 100 people in Miami-Dade died each year due to opioid overdose. Then in 2016, this number jumped with a reported 229 fatal opioid overdoses throughout the county.1 This sharp increase in opioid-related fatalities is alarming and calls for increased resources.

Luckily, North Miami is home to a number of rehabilitation programs targeting those with substance use disorders. In 2015, more than 1,000 Miami-Dade County residents attended treatment programs for opioid use disorder, or opioid addiction.1

If you are having trouble with opioids or any other substance—whether its prescription drugs, illicit substances, or alcohol—you may be thinking about the possibility of getting treatment in North Miami. If so, you may also be curious about what happens in rehab. First, it’s important to know that detox is distinct from treatment in rehab.

  • Professional detox programs are designed to manage the physical symptoms of withdrawal that occur after stopping drug use.2
  • Some forms of acute substance withdrawal should always be completed under the supervision of specially trained medical staff because it can be dangerous for users to stop cold turkey on their own.
  • Symptoms of withdrawal can be severe and possibly life-threatening, depending on the substance.

While a necessary first step for recovery, detox alone is rarely sufficient to completely stop drug use, as it does little to address the underlying psychological and behavioral issues connected to the user’s addiction.2

When you enter rehab, depending on the type of program and your individual needs, you can expect to participate in various evidence-based approaches to treating substance use disorders. Your treatment will likely include behavioral therapy, medication, or both.3 Often, therapy will include individual sessions and group sessions. Many individuals who are addicted to drugs also suffer from other health or psychiatric issues that can be addressed at the same time, such as bipolar disorder or depression.3

The rehabilitation period will focus on giving you tools and strategies for dealing with the inevitable cravings and drug triggers. Treatment staff will motivate you to continue your recovery and teach you how to avoid future drug use and prevent a relapse.3

Gerry Brown

Founder and President U-Turn For Christ - Gold Hill

Pastor Gerry Brown comes from a family of fifteen brothers and sisters, and is therefore family oriented. After many years of struggling with the sin of addiction, finding himself in divorce court with a Judge warning him that he was about to ruin his life, he agreed to do whatever his lovely wife Peggy wanted for him to get his family back. Peggy’s one requirement was for Gerry to attend church with her. Gerry agreed, not realizing God would get a hold of his heart and change his life forever. That was over twenty years ago. Today he is the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Romoland and also the founder and President of U-Turn For Christ. His unique shoot-from-the-hip style of teaching gets right to the heart of the matter, and the meat of the Word. His powerfully unique style of delivering God’s Word will both challenge and encourage you to new levels of maturity in your walk with Jesus, as we draw from God’s design for living, and discover new insights to God’s “Truth and Love in Action”.

According to the Florida Office of Drug Control, prescription drug abuse is rampant in the state, with the top numbers of oxycodone users and dispensaries in the nation. Some of the efforts Florida has made to counter drug and alcohol abuse include:

  • The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, passed in 2009, works to track and identify which patients are abusing drug prescriptions, or “doctor shopping” for multiple prescriptions.
  • Florida has funded teen substance treatment programs.
  • Abuse Prevention Coalitions have been developed, which sets up localized prevention groups in major Florida cities.
  • Recovery experts created a comprehensive guide for practitioners for handling patients with addictions.
