Drug Addiction Reaches Epidemic Numbers; Florida Clinic Employs Holistic Treatment Approach

Although recent studies have shown that illegal drug abuse statistics amongst adolescents have gone down nationwide, non-medical prescription drug abuse remains high. In fact, studies show that the numbers surrounding non-medical prescription drug abuse amongst users are reaching epidemic levels. However, it becomes extremely difficult to properly regulate non-medical prescription drug abuse. Even in our local and national news we see radio show host Rush Limbaugh and then-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s daughter, Noelle, were among prescription fraud cases that grabbed national headlines. C.A.R.E. FLORIDA, a holistic-based Florida drug rehab clinic, continues to combat this abuse in both adolescents and adults by attacking addiction at the front lines and preparing a person for the road to recovery.

C.A.R.E. Florida Launches Family Weekends to Help on That Long Road to Recovery

Just because an addict finished a drug rehab program does not mean they have recovered. Too often patients do not complete their recovery and return to addiction and abuse soon after. However, this begs the question: “Who is enabling the patient?” Usually it’s their family and loved ones. C.A.R.E. FLORIDA has taken steps to counterattack these situations by offering family weekends four times a year for both patients that have completed treatment and those currently in treatment. The goal? Educate families on the difference between loving an addict and enabling them on the long road to recovery. (PRWeb Nov 18, 2008)
