If you are searching for information trying to find different Drug Rehabs in Florida this information will be extremely helpful to you and your family. You should know that most if not all Drug Rehab Clinics in the United States are 12 step based. You probably know by now if you have called them or read their websites, that in order to become sober you will relapse. Also you have been probably told, you are diseased, and that you will need to find a spiritual bond with a higher power in order to find sobriety. Let Saint Jude Retreats reassure you that none of these are true. Disease is an involuntarily condition, illness, addiction is a learned behavior. Using heroin or other drugs is simply a choice.
In surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 2,987 or 2% of Florida's 74,150 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment For Heroin. Studies also show that 375,000 or 2.62% of Florida's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. There were also studies that show 1.2% of high school students had used heroin at some point in their lives. South Florida is a primary U.S. point of entry for South American heroin. Miami International Airport is the main importation venue for heroin, which is secreted by couriers or in air freight shipments. In many instances, heroin is commingled with cocaine shipments and smuggled through legitimate cargo, such as flowers originating from Colombia. The majority of the heroin entering Florida is destined for markets along the east coast of the U.S., as Florida does not have a significant heroin abuse problem. The highest concentration of heroin use in Florida is in the Orlando area. Heroin is a dominant threat there and the majority of the heroin in central Florida is South American in origin. Heroin in southwest Florida and the Tampa area originates from sources in Miami, Orlando and New York City. Most heroin distribution and transportation organizations have ties to Colombia and New York, and are active throughout Florida. Once the heroin enters Florida, it is transported out of state via automobiles, buses and trains to the northeast U.S. Although Florida does not have a high heroin abuse population, the 2006 Interim (January-June) Report of the Florida Medical Examiners reports that Fort Lauderdale had the highest reported incidents of heroin-related deaths (9 total), followed by Miami (5) and St. Petersburg (3).
