Substance Use in Broward County, FL

Monitoring state and local data assists in preventing and treating substance use. In the state of Florida, substance use has risen steadily over the past two decades. Unfortunately, the increase in substance use also means an increase in overdose deaths.

Florida reported 7,144 drug overdose deaths in 2021. Deaths from drug poisoning have become the leading cause of injury death in the state. Fortunately, many states, including Florida, distribute life-saving naloxone to help reduce fatal drug overdoses.

The most recent data according to The United Way of Broward County showed there were 1,642 opioid overdoses treated in 2017. It was determined that 85% of those were attributed to heroin. However, 1,230 were released from the ER with no follow-up treatment.

Broward County’s Drug Court was created in 1991 and is the third oldest drug court in the nation. Additionally, this Drug Court treatment program serves over 800 clients daily. All in all, the program is intended to provide intervention and diversion from jail for those affected by substance use disorders.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office recently issued a warning concerning counterfeit prescription pills containing fentanyl. As with other illicitly-made drugs, these pills can be deadly. Last but not least, no two pills contain the same amount of fentanyl.

Why is Detox Important?

Detox is the transition between dependence and abstinence. When someone is dependent on substances to get through every day, it is time for them to take the first step in regaining control of their life. Therefore, detox is the first step.

Clients entering a detox program are assessed and monitored for co-occurring medical and mental health disorders. Next, the detoxification process clears the body of drugs, alcohol, and toxins. As a result, detox can lead to withdrawal symptoms which can be uncomfortable and sometimes life-threatening.

A detox may take between a few days to a few weeks, depending on the substance of abuse and the severity of dependence. The goal of detox is not only to rid the body of substances of abuse but to do so in a safe and supportive setting. Fortunately, medically supervised detox provides round-the-clock care and support.

Trained staff may administer medications to prevent or lessen withdrawal symptoms during and after detox. Another goal of detox is to motivate clients to continue the recovery process. Continuum care is arranged according to each individual’s needs.

Addiction Treatment Therapies At Our Coconut Creek Detox

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)- This type of therapy helps people change how they think. Working with a mental health counselor, people learn about the negative or inaccurate thoughts and behaviors that contributed to their substance abuse. Through awareness, CBT helps them identify problem situations and respond to them healthily and more effectively.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)- Helps a person deal with the emotional turmoil of substance abuse and mental health disorders. DBT helps regulate emotions, build healthy coping skills, and conquer interpersonal conflicts. DBT can help rebuild relationships with family and friends.
  • Individual therapy- Many benefits come from individual therapy sessions. A person can learn underlying causes that may have led to substance abuse. It is also a safe place to discuss past traumas and fears. This can help them from feeling hopeless and powerless.
  • Group therapy- Is therapy led by a trained therapist, consisting of multiple clients, in a private setting. Group therapy encourages peer bonding and open communication in a safe environment. During sessions, group members share their experiences with addiction, speaking freely about struggles and emotions associated with their substance use.
  • Family counseling- This counseling focuses on uniting families and healing relationships. This is also a way to offer support to families affected by substance use. Families work with a trained therapist to identify issues and healthily address them. It is also a way to learn healthy and effective communication skills within the family unit.
