Facts & Resources About Addiction Intervention in Florida
Although there are more than 130,000 people in Florida who do enroll in rehabilitation programs each year, there are nearly 1.5 million Floridians who are dependent on or abuse drugs or alcohol. Legislators have tried to help close the treatment gap by expanding access to treatment, but there is still the issue of actually getting addicts to seek out the help.
This is where the role of a professional interventionist comes in. A drug or alcohol interventionist works with friends and families in Florida to get people into treatment and begin the development of recovery plans.
