Substance Abuse Stats in Cape Coral, FL

Cape Coral is a city in Southwestern Florida with a population of nearly 200,000 people. Like other urban areas in Florida, Cape Coral has issues with drug and alcohol abuse.

Take a look at these astounding substance abuse statistics for the state of Florida:

  • In 2017, 7 percent of Florida’s entire population met qualifications for a substance use disorder but did not receive any treatment.
  • During a 2017 survey, almost 25% of Floridians over 12 said they binge drank in the prior month.

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

People looking for substance abuse treatment in Cape Coral need to understand the difference between inpatient and outpatient care. These two levels of treatment account for the vast majority of substance abuse treatment offerings.

Inpatient rehab means living at a rehab center and living a recovery-focused lifestyle alongside peers and staff.

Outpatient care allows you to keep living at home, while receiving care for 10 hours a week or so. Outpatient care is only suitable for people who are stable enough to handle less support.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

When you go to inpatient rehab, you will have to decide how long your stay will be. There is not  one length of care that works for everyone. Rather, you need to consider your needs and choose a rehab program that works for you.

Addiction specialists can help you to make this decision. In general, it is recommended to stay at rehab for no less than 90 days. Longer stays are associated with better long-term success.

What to Expect at Rehab

If you’re planning on attending inpatient rehab, you probably have a lot of questions. Your experience at rehab will be unique to you. 

Most rehab plans incorporate classic treatment approaches such as therapy and medication, as well as supportive lifestyle changes and activities. The idea is that by the time you leave rehab, you will have the tools you need to transition back into your life with your sobriety intact. 

Many patients leave rehab and immediately begin an outpatient program.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

Detox is a step that many patients must take before they can go to rehab. People who have been abusing drugs or alcohol recently should probably go to detox. Basically, anyone who is going through, or may go through withdrawal must go to detox.

Why? Withdrawal from drugs or alcohol can be extremely painful, and in severe cases it can pose serious health risks. Going to detox ensures your safety and comfort during this trying time.

How Long is Detox?

The detox process can vary a lot, depending on who you are and your substance abuse history. The mildest withdrawal periods take a few days to complete, while more severe cases can last for weeks.

Detox can only end when doctors clear you to be released. You will need to be physically and mentally stable, with no lingering withdrawal symptoms. Once you leave detox, you will likely move into inpatient rehab.
