Miami Beach

Miami Beach is known for its tropical paradise and gorgeous beaches. But underneath the palm trees and sunscreen, there is a dark epidemic. Drug and alcohol addiction is destroying the lives of individuals and families alike.

In recent years, according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, in South Florida, there has been an increase in both methamphetamine use and heroin use. Injection drug use has also increased, especially among younger prescription opioid injectors.

Another major problem for the residents of Miami Beach is alcohol. Although it is legal unlike heroin or marijuana, when misused, it can also be deadly. There were almost 800 fatalities in Florida last year that were related to drunk driving, according to the Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

You can feel discouraged and alone if you suffer from drug or alcohol addiction. You need not despair, though. Help is available if you are just willing to ask for it. There are tons of resources available to you if you are searching for addiction treatment in Miami Beach.

SMART Recovery Meetings

A recovery program that has a 4-point system (including living a balanced life, coping with urges, building motivation and managing behaviors), SMART Recovery is the largest alternative to 12-step programs. Some people think 12-step programs are too religious as they ask their members to look to a higher power. Although the higher power in the 12-step programs can also be family or friendship and is not necessarily God, some people like the focus on self-reliance and self-empowerment in SMART Recovery.
