If you are living in Weston, Florida and you are struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, you are not alone.
The extent of drug and alcohol abuse affecting residents of Broward County is reflected in the number of treatment admissions in 2016. For example, 2,058 people entered an adult Broward addiction treatment program primarily for alcohol abuse; this figure represented 28% of all adult substance abuse treatment clients.1 Marijuana is also a common drug of abuse, with about 1,500 marijuana-addicted patients enrolled in Broward treatment facilities in 2016.1
Addiction can be devastating—not only to your physical health, but also to your relationships, job, and mental health. There are several ways to quit using alcohol and drugs—ranging from individual therapy to several months of inpatient treatment. Although you have treatment choices, perhaps the surest way to stop using substances for good is through the help of a professional rehabilitation program.
Depending on your drug of choice, treatment may start with medical detox. During detox, all substances will safely be eliminated from your body while under medical supervision. Once your body has fully detoxed and stabilized, you are free to focus on the next step of treatment: transitioning into an inpatient or outpatient treatment center.
