Substance Abuse Resources in Miami

Miami Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Miami is known for its beautiful beaches, its fun and diverse population and its thriving and exciting nightlife. One of the consequences of living in a party town, though, is that it can often lead to substance abuse. Those who have a propensity for addiction can understand that in a town like Miami, it is all too easy to get swept up in alcohol and drug use.

According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, in recent years, there has been an increase in heroin use and methamphetamine use in South Florida. There has also been an increase in injection drug use, particularly among a young adult population of prescription opioid injectors.

Alcohol is also a major issue in Miami. Although it is not illegal like cocaine or methamphetamine, it can be just as deadly. According to the Mothers Against Drunk Driving, there were nearly 800 drunk driving fatalities in Florida last year.

If you are suffering from substance use disorder, it can feel hopeless. You don’t need to despair, however. There are many resources that are available to you if you are willing to ask for help. Taking that first step and seeking alcohol or drug rehab in Miami takes a tremendous amount of courage.

Finding Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Miami, Florida


Understanding the many options available to you in Miami for drug and alcohol addiction treatment will require having the right information. Luckily, in this guide, we have compiled that information for you.

Miami, Florida Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Rehab Centers

While some patients who are being treated for drug and alcohol addiction in Miami will only need outpatient treatment, some will require residential treatment. A variety of treatment programs are available to you in a rehabilitation facility. A number of factors will determine the type of treatment program you need like your history with addiction and the substance you are currently misusing. Whether you’re seeking a drug rehab center in Miami, FL, or an alcohol rehab center in Miami, FL, it’s important to understand the differences betweeen these programs.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Also known as an inpatient treatment program, this program is a good fit for those who suffer from a serious addiction. In some facilities, the patient goes straight from detox to inpatient treatment where he or she will have access to professional medical care 24 hours a day.

  • Connector.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Also known sometimes as “dayhab” the partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a good fit for patients who do not need quite as much monitoring. Though they still have access to medical professionals, they do not need to stay on campus, provided that they have a positive, drug-free environment in which to stay.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Patients in an outpatient treatment program are also allowed to stay in a stable home environment or in housing that is provided by the facility. Those who have a more moderate addiction may only require outpatient treatment.

One of the positive aspects of a nationally branded treatment facility like The Recovery Village is that addiction specialists will be able to assess your situation and formulate an individualized treatment plan. This way, you know you are getting exactly what you need to avoid relapse.

Detox Centers

In Miami, there are several options for detox centers. It is essential that you undergo the detox process with the help of medical professionals. Withdrawal symptoms can be difficult to go through. If you attempt to do it on your own, you may relapse. In a detox center, you will be assisted through the process.

While detox is important, going to a detox center that does not also offer treatment programs is a mistake for most people. The first thing you need to do when you are overcoming addiction is detox. However, it’s essential that this is followed immediately by a treatment program, usually an inpatient treatment program.

Because national treatment facilities like The Recovery Village offer both detox and treatment programs (residential, partial hospitalization and outpatient), you are able to go from detox straight into the treatment program that you need. This is the best way to avoid relapse.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Having an aftercare plan is an essential part of successfully completing an inpatient or outpatient treatment program. There are many programs near you that will help you to maintain your recovery.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

One of the most respected recovery programs is the 12-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous. AA is a fellowship of women and men who have struggled with alcoholism. They share their experiences, strength and hope with each other for the purpose of helping each other to stay sober. The 12-step process asks them to admit their lives are unmanageable, turn their lives over to a higher power, examine previous mistakes and help others. Meetings are free and open to anyone. Regardless of where you received alcohol treatment, Miami’s AA meetings can help you stay sober. The following are just a few of the many Miami meetings available:

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Narcotics Anonymous is the 12-step program for those who have misused narcotics. While it also asks its members to follow the 12 steps with a sponsor, the only thing that it requires of its members is that they have a desire to stop using drugs. Like AA, NA also has a high success rate. Meetings are free and open to everyone. There is literature available to buy, but it can also be read on the internet. Regardless of where you received drug treatment, Miami’s NA meetings can help you stay on the right path for a lifetime.
