Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Jacksonville, Florida

Jacksonville, Florida, is located in the middle of several of the most-used drug trafficking routes in the United States; in addition, it’s a major port of entry in its own right. As a result, a number of illicit drugs are readily available in the city. The presence of alcohol is near-constant; the good news for those struggling with addiction and/or dependency is that many inpatient and outpatient rehabs nearby can help.

The Opioid Epidemic In Jacksonville

Opioid-related drug deaths are plaguing the nation, and Jacksonville is no different. Residents of Duval County, where Jacksonville is located, grapple with drug-related deaths almost every day.

Most Jacksonville Opioid overdose victims have ranged from 30 to 39 years old. Jacksonville firefighters have been called to respond to a drug-related overdose every 3 hours (the majority of which are Opioid-related). It has cost $15,000 per month to resupply and stock new units of the drug that revives people who have overdosed on drugs (known as Narcan).

Jacksonville’s Responses To The Opioid Crisis

In response to Jacksonville’s Opioid emergency, state officials have introduced various treatment plans and launched campaigns to spread awareness. The Jacksonville fire rescue department has spent $4.5 million annually to transport people with Opioid disorders. An additional $1.5 million was earmarked for providing treatment to people struggling with Opioid addiction. For example, Project Save Lives is an effort started to reduce deaths caused by Opioid abuse.

Traveling For Rehab From Jacksonville

When reviewing treatment options for drug and alcohol use disorders, it’s wise to consider which facilities are best and what the location has to offer. There are benefits and disadvantages to staying local for treatment as opposed to leaving a local city and choosing to get treated somewhere else.

Local facilities provide patients the chance to keep family and friends close as they progress into sobriety. They also save money on airfare and gas caused by long distance travel. However, local facilities can be reminders of trauma and stress; this can be a source of distractions for patients in recovery.

Deciding whether or not to travel to another city can be effective for sobriety. There are many different types of therapy, some of which might now be offered locally. When patients travel for rehab, they may not have access to friends and family; they have the chance to be surrounded by caring staff members in a new environment filled with hope, however. For patients wanting to keep their recovery private, leaving local centers can provide privacy and peace.

It’s Time For A Change

Seeking treatment for an addiction may seem overwhelming. Treatment providers can discuss available options with you. If you or a loved one is battling addiction, there is hope. No matter what the question is, problematic use of drugs and/or alcohol is not the answer. For more information, contact a treatment provider today.
