Julie Constance works with a group of medical professionals at Help.org. The vast majority
of people who need treatment for substance abuse disorders do not seek it.
Though there are many barriers that discourage people from getting the help
they need, cost is a significant factor. So they created a guide that provides
comprehensive information on topics like, available care options, financial
support, and free resources that are available in Florida.
It has been
that roughly 363,000 people use hard drugs like cocaine and heroin, and another 1,009,000 abuse alcohol in Florida every year. In addition, over 20% of all admissions into state-funded treatment programs in 2015 were because of opiates, which is more than twice as high as the national average. As a consequence,
12% of all deaths in Florida
in the last 10 years were due to drugs and alcohol, and there were over
35,000 DUI arrests
in 2016 alone.
