Drug abuse and alcohol addiction in Florida continue to be common problems that people in Gainesville encounter every day. According to some of the most recent reports, the current state of the location is teetering on the edge of an opioid crisis, along with many areas throughout the rest of the country. Trends suggest that high levels of alcohol, opiates, heroin, cocaine, and crystal meth are all present throughout Florida, and Gainesville.

Gainesville is the second largest city in Florida and is home to around 127,488 people. According to the most recent statistics, drug abuse in Gainesville is a problem that's continuing to grow more significant each year. Issues associated with ethylene, and alpha-PVP are the most common, but there are also issues with things like MDMA.

Getting Help for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Gainesville

One of the most important things to note when living in Florida, is that there is no shortage of rehab facilities available for individuals to visit. However, that doesn't mean that treatment is equal across all of the options available. For example, one report conducted in 2013 found that only about 20% of the listed intervention and detox centers in Gainesville and Florida were recognized by the Joint Commission, which is the standard for ethical treatment and practices.

This may be part of the reason why the number of drug addiction and alcohol addiction problems remain so high across Florida. Only about one in ten people with a substance abuse problem feels comfortable enough to seek out help from a rehab professional. That being said, the number of primary opioid treatment center admissions in 2015 to 2016 remains significant, at around 13,039 in total.

For individuals in Gainesville, there are a number of rehab and treatment centers to choose from, including the Meridian Behavioral Healthcare Unit, which offers cognitive behavioral therapy to individuals who want to fight back against the causes of their substance abuse problems, and the Metamorphosis Office. There are also locations called the Live Better Therapy Center and the UF Health Florida Recovery Center.

Finding Treatment for Your Substance Abuse

If you know someone in Gainesville who suffers from a substance abuse problem, or you're battling your own issues with drug or alcohol addiction, then it's important to seek help from a rehab and intervention center as quickly as possible. Although only a small percentage of these centers have the right treatment solutions to help you overcome your problems, the faster that you start checking out what's available, the more likely it will be that you'll find a center that's right for your needs.

Keep in mind that you may need to look for a treatment center that offers rehab facilities for people with both drug and alcohol problems. Statistics suggest that people in Gainesville may be more likely to use alcohol with a secondary addictive substance like heroin or cocaine. However, few rehab centers will have the resources to offer treatment for both forms of addiction at once, and detox may be more complicated without a dedicated treatment plan.
