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.

The kitchen at River Oaks is one of the best, what's most impressive is that its so clean and organized. I'm doing salads and no carbs and they have been so accommodating to help me with my special diet. From the sugar free oatmeal to the grilled chicken salad. I have not had a bad meal yet. Angie in the kitchen is so sweet as can be along with Glenda, and Diana. The whole staff including Chef Terry is great and accommodating. They go above and beyond. The kitchen is spotless. Even with the grumpy clients, they always keep a smile on their face. I only wish they could have a tip jar because I would fill it up! River Oaks management has done a great job with their kitchen staff!
Wide array of treatment options, some very good staff and counselors. The kitchen staff was very accommodating to my special dietary needs.
