Why Choose Rehab in St. Petersburg?

St. Petersburg is located in Pinellas County, Florida, and has a population of just over a quarter of a million people.

Located in the Tampa Bay area, both locals and tourists enjoy the outdoor activities, in particular, the access to the beaches. For people who live in the area, it makes sense
to stay close to home when seeking help for substance abuse, mental health, and dual diagnosis disorders. During our programming, clients can remain in their homes in many cases, as well as have family and friends nearby.

Traveling to St. Petersburg for rehab can also be the best fit. Sometimes a person may have an unhealthy home life, including living with or near those still actively using drugs or alcohol. It can make sense for them to temporarily stay in another area while receiving treatment.

What To Expect At Our Rehab in St. Petersburg

Our program encompasses several aspects that come together to allow a person a rich and rewarding experience in overcoming their substance use disorder or mental health issues. Talk therapy lies at the heart at our drug rehab in St. Petersburg, including individual therapy and group therapy and experiential therapy. Our programs also include family and holistic therapy, as well as other more focused approaches.

Treatment helps people in three ways. First, they learn to understand what contributed to developing an addiction. For example, past events like trauma, genetics, or mental health disorders may have played a part in developing a substance use disorder. From there, the individual learns how to enter sobriety and adjust to the changes it brings about, both physically and emotionally. Last, people leave rehab with experience in staying sober and the skill set to help them avoid relapse. Treatment addresses all three areas in order to provide the person with the best chance of enjoying lifelong recovery.

Benefits of Rehab in St. Petersburg

Drug rehab in St. Petersburg provides multiple benefits for those looking to overcome the harsh reality of addiction. Most people begin their treatment with a detox program and then decide if they need to transition into residential care. Alternatively, many find that outpatient care provides what they need while still allowing them to live at home.

The kind of treatment provided in outpatient rehab often mirrors that given in more time-intensive programs. It can also build on what was learned in initial treatment, such as why the person developed an addiction and how to move past it. This sets the individual up to learn how to avoid relapse and continue on their healing path long after treatment is over.

How Drug Addiction Impacts Florida

No state escapes the dangers that come with drug addiction. From 2017-2019, Florida had an annual average prevalence of 1.1 million people with a substance use disorder. During this same time period, approximately 750,000 people misused prescription pain relievers, including OxyContin, Vicodin, fentanyl, and codeine. Around 165,000 people struggled with opioid addiction.

COVID-19 contributed to a spike in the number of people who abuse substances and experience the often deadly fallout. During the first year of the pandemic, almost 100,000 people nationwide died from a drug overdose death. This is an increase of nearly 30% from the previous year.

report stated that Florida ranked second in the country for overdose deaths. Only California has a higher ranking. The Tampa and St. Petersburg areas have reported startling numbers related to this. More than 1,200 Tampa Bay residents died from opioid-related overdoses in 2020, which was an increase over the previous year. Pinellas County, where St. Petersburg is located, experienced an increase of 35% in drug-related deaths in 2020.  This data makes it clear there is a need for drug rehab in St. Petersburg.
