Over 130,331 people report illicit drug use during their lifetime in a 2018 survey, with over 3,011 new users that year. Most users were over the age of 26 and of white, non-Hispanic ethnicity. They have a higher education and are employed.

Out of those addicted to drugs, only about 20.3% received treatment during 2018. While many did not feel the need for treatment, somewhere around 6,278 did but did not receive treatment. For some, it was lack of support to find help that delayed treatment. For others, it was too hard to deal with insurance and the financial commitment needed.

These barriers need not delay treatment. Northlake Recovery’s helpline can help those seeking residential drug rehab Florida.

Where to Start?

Northlake Recovery’s residential drug rehab Florida begins after detoxification. Then the recovering drug addict will move into one of the residential treatment homes. Meals and sleeping quarters are in the same building as treatment and freedom is limited. This helps the recovering drug addict focus on treatment instead of looking for the next fix.

Therapies During Residential Drug Rehab in Florida

Both traditional and non-traditional therapies are available. The primary therapist assigned to the recovering drug addict will recommend proper therapies based on the individual’s circumstance. Everyone joins the peer groups and has private therapy sessions.
