Hollywood, Florida, is home to approximately 140,000 people. It is found in Broward County and it is located around 8 miles from Ft. Lauderdale and 5 miles from Pembroke Pines. The city grew somewhat during the 1990s, when its population expanded by 15%. Since then, the city has experienced lower than 1% growths per year. While Broward County is an affluent county, it is also plagued by drug and alcohol abuse or addiction problems and Hollywood has not been able to escape this either. One of the things that demonstrates this is that there is a proven strong correlation between levels of property crime and violent crime, and substance abuse. In Hollywood, the statistics for both these types of crimes are higher than the state average.

 

Statistics on Substance Abuse in Hollywood, FL

 

To determine the extent of the drug and alcohol problem in the city, officials in Hollywood, FL, have pulled together a number of pieces of research. These found that:

 

  • 6.8% of the population who are aged 12 or over have reported heavy drinking. This rate has remained unchanged over the past 10 years. A heavy drinker is someone who binge drinks for at least five out of the past 30 days.
  • 85.5% started drinking when they were under the age of 21.
  • 17.5% of drinkers under the age of 21 have taken an illicit substance within two hours of having an alcoholic drink. This compares to just 5% of those over the age of 21. This statistic in particular has given rise to a number or prevention and intervention efforts by city officials, who take this as proof that alcohol is a gateway drug to other more addictive substances.
  • Most people who combine alcohol with another substance also use cannabis. In fact, this was reported by 16.9% of those under the age of 21 who also drank alcohol.

 

For Hollywood, FL, the main goal is to prevent young people in particular from first turning to substances. At the same time, they understand that there are many people for whom these prevention and intervention methods have come too little or too late. For them, heavy investments have been made in detox and rehab treatment centers. The city has taken part in a number of efforts to make this type of treatment more available. These efforts include:

 

  • The Florida 17th Circuit Drug Court, whereby nonviolent offenders who have a substance abuse problem are offered the opportunity to go through detox and rehab instead of having to go to prison. If the treatment is successful, the criminal case is thrown out of court.
  • A financial investment in detox and rehab facilities, so that money becomes less of a barrier towards seeking and obtaining treatment.
  • More signposting to the treatment options that are available, including residential and outpatient rehab.
  • Ensuring strong aftercare solutions are in place, such as 12 step meetings, sober living facilities, and further counseling and therapy.

 

Put together, it is hoped that Hollywood will soon be a completely drug free community.
