Miramar Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Miramar, FL residents, like many U.S. residents, are struggling with a variety of substance abuse issues. Opioid abuse has become a particularly serious problem for Miramar, one that often requires professional treatment.

According to a recent statement from the city of Miramar, retail opioid prescriptions were dispensed to 51.3 out of every 100 individuals in Broward County between the years of 2006 and 2016.1 This is just one of the reasons the city used to justify its announcement that it would file an official lawsuit against certain drug manufacturers in 2018.1

Not everyone who abuses opioid drugs starts out wanting to get high. In fact, many people begin taking opioids as prescribed by a doctor to manage acute or chronic pain.2 As people build tolerance to opioids, they may begin misusing them in efforts to achieve an adequate level of pain relief. Others misuse opioids for the euphoric or calming effects they produce. Misuse includes taking the narcotic mediation more frequently or in higher doses than prescribed.

Chronic use of opioids (both taken as directed or misused) can lead to physiological dependence, in which the body adapts to the presence of the drug. Once someone is dependent, they will experience withdrawal symptoms, such as body aches, agitation, anxiety, excessive sweating, nausea and vomiting, and diarrhea, if they abruptly quit using.3 Physiological dependence can develop far more quickly in someone who is misusing or abusing opioid painkillers and can contribute to a cycle of opioid abuse in which the person cannot quit on their own. Compulsive or uncontrollable opioid abuse is a hallmark of addiction and is likely to require professional treatment.

Opioid rehab programs combine several different therapeutic interventions, such as individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, and support meetings, to provide a comprehensive approach to recovery.

If you or someone you love has been abusing opioids or another type of substance and putting their health or even their life in danger, now is the time to seek help. We have thousands of rehabilitation centers listed in our directory, so you can find a professional treatment center near you or anywhere in the country.

    • Consider your loved one's issues. What is your addicted family member's drug of choice? Do they experience withdrawal symptoms when they are without that drug? Are they violent? Have they experienced a traumatic event? The specifics of your loved one's experience will dictate which drug rehab is the most appropriate.
    • Take note of co-occurring mental health disorders. Depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder - any co-occurring mental health issues will need to be addressed at the same time as the addiction for the best possible outcome.
    • Consider the needs of the family. While you may be willing to give up everything to help your loved one walk away from addiction, it is important to consider the needs of everyone in the family.
