Substance abuse and addiction are dangerous issues impacting Coconut Creek, Florida, along with the rest of the nation.
There has been an alarming increase in the misuse of prescription opioid painkillers in the United States over recent years. Because they’re so addictive, opioid addiction has become a public health emergency throughout the country, which highlights the need for professional rehabs able to serve the needs of communities such as Coconut Creek.1
One common opioid is morphine. In 2016, there were 193 morphine-related deaths in Broward County. 2 If morphine abuse isn’t treated, it could progress to heroin use. In fact, 4 out of 5 new heroin users misused prescription painkillers before transitioning to heroin.3
It is important to know that there are professionals who understand opioid addiction and can help, especially if you or someone you love originally began taking opioids for chronic pain. Alternative forms of pain relief can be used in conjunction with over-the-counter pain medication to help manage pain without opioids.4 These alternatives include acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, surgery, and nerve blocks to combat pain.4
If you want to get help for your addiction but aren’t sure which program is right for you, your doctor or treatment specialist can conduct an evaluation and then refer you to the appropriate level of treatment. Understand that what works for one person doesn’t work for everyone. Nonetheless, there are drug rehab centers near Coconut Creek or elsewhere that can customize a plan of treatment for your specific needs.

I really can appreciate the one on one care for your needs. They are definitely passionate about helping others. I think the best quality was the relationships staff has with clients. They are sincere.
Even the staff who is new here are totally invested in my recovery. Gus has been very helpful because he takes the time to stop what he's doing and make sure I have my needs met. One day last week I lost my clothes in the laundry and became very frustrated, he stopped what he was doing and walked me over to the program supervisors office to make sure my clothes were found. Ever since that day I felt very cared for by staff and I know if there is an issue I can depend on them which makes it so much more comfortable to focus on my classes and my treatment. I love the sense of community here among clients and staff. Everyone is so welcoming and they want to make sure I get the most of my time here. The groups have been so life changing and the therapists are very professional. So glad I came here.
Looking back I feel ANR was a lifesaver, and all that\'s changed in my life is the nature of it. I am free! I feel like myself and at the same time I never want use again. I feel optimistic and feel like I have the strength to move forward. I lack a desire to use, NOTHING. I am stable and happy and comfortable with my life. I have not been able to find many health professionals that I click with except ANR. Many of the rehabs I looked at were unfit, or too uncomfortable to detox cold turkey and offer little support. So I feel obliged to help others know there is a way to end the addiction. I enjoy being alive again and thoughts of what the future hold feel soothing. I can see my children again and I could never thank ANR enough.
